Astral projection is the ability to separate the spiritual essence and conscious mind from the physical form and have it act independently of the body. It is an ability often used by magic users such as witches and warlocks, but may also be used by psychics and other supernatural creatures as well. While an individual is projecting their mental consciousness, or, astral self, their body is rendered inert and is incapable of taking any action until the user's mind returns to it. This leaves the body extremely vulnerable to attack, so those who have mastered the ability are often careful to leave their corporeal form in a location where it will suffer no harm.
