    It's also interesting to consider exactly what / who is travelling away from her/his physical body. I call that part of 'us' our 'animating spirit'(s) but I wonder how an 'animating spirit' is actually perceived by those who interact with 'it'???

    One for Mikey, maybe?

    Yes, you might ask Mikey, although he never astral traveled 0r - we think - met an astral traveler, and he might not actually know how we would be perceived. From all that I have read, and reports of the reactions others have who meet us out of body, my guess is that we look like our earth-bodies, but perhaps not quite solid, and we trail our silver cords. That cord is a give-away that we are minds outside of physical bodies!

    I think much the same about likely appearance but I'm hoping that if Mikey doesn't know first-hand then he'll be able to ask someone who does.... ;)

    Pulling our legs now but I wonder where it trails from - is it like a long thin silver tail!? :D Who thought mac was a dour old curmudgeon?

    The silver cord certainly didn’t look like a ‘string’ in my one experience where I think I saw it. It looked like a translucent beam with a bit of color reflecting from it that was connected near the center of my body as I was floating in the air during a lucid dream.

    Perhaps our silver cords may be unique depending on the individual which I never thought to look at it that way... maybe they aren’t. Would love to hear Mikey’s insight.
