For some people, the title of this article might sound a bit strange, and it could be said that this is not going to be much of a surprise. After all, it can seem more or less impossible for someone to ‘leave their body’.

To be human means having a body and, if someone lost this part of them, they would die. Based on this, it is not going to be possible for someone to leave their body and end up as just a head.

Another Angle

Another way of looking at this would be to say that it is not that someone can physically disconnect from their body, but what they can do is lose awareness of what is taking place there. One is the going to have a body, yet they won’t feel connected to this part of them.

Consequently, it can be as though they only have a head and their body is not part of who they are. They can have the same connection to their body as they do to a table or a chair, for instance.


Their body will then be connected to their head but it won’t be as though it has anything to do with them. There is then their head and there is their body; they are not going to feel like a whole human being.

Naturally, this is going to have a big effect on how someone experience life and how other people perceive them. This could be how they always experience life, or it could be what happens at certain times.

The Outcome

When one is out of touch with their body, they are going to be out touch with their needs and feelings. They can then be aware of what their mind needs, but that will be about as far as it goes.

Therefore, they won’t know if they are hungry or not, how they feel about what they are doing, or whether or not they need to connect with others, amongst other things. One is going to be out of touch with a lot of important information.

An Analogy

It is then going to be similar to what would happen if one was driving a car but they didn’t look at the dashboard. One is going to be oblivious as to the amount of fuel they have left and how fast they are going.

Due to this, their car could just stop or they could end up crashing into something and ending their life. Here, one needs to bring their attention down to the dashboard from time to time and this will solve all these problems, as well as others.

On The Sidelines

And through being out of touch with what is going on in their body, one is not going to have a strong need to do anything. They will be more like a sports player sat on the bench than someone who is on the field getting involved.

Their mind, unlike their body is not interested in doing anything or getting things done; it will be happy to just think about life, not to embrace it. What this will then mean is that they won’t be able to assert themselves.

No Boundaries

So, if they are around others, they could end up going along with what other people want them to do. If they don’t want to do something it might not matter, as they could act as though they do.

One could end up being compromised, but they are not going to realise that this is what is taking place. The reason for this is that they will be out of touch with their feelings and needs.

The After Affects

If they were to spend time in their own company after something like this has taken place, they could end up coming into contact with how they feel. That is, of course, if they are not always disconnected from their body.

During this time, they could feel angry, frustrated, and powerless, and it could be as though they have no control over their life. Now, if they were aware of their feelings and needs when they were asked to do something, it might have stopped them from agreeing to do something that they didn’t want to do.

Staying In Their Body

In this case, one will inhabit their body at certain times and leave it at others. When one is connected to their body they will be able to embrace the present moment, with this being their point of power.

The key will be for them to stay in their body and to no longer leave it. In order for this to take place, one will need to understand why they leave their body to begin with.

A Deeper Look

What they are likely to find is that the reason they pop out of their body is because they don’t feel as though it is safe for them to be in their body. This is then no different to how one would leave a building if it wasn’t safe for them to be there.

When this happens it will show that there is an outer threat, but when the former takes place it will show that there is an inner threat. Even so, it can be normal for their mind to believe that the threat is external, and this will show that they are projecting their inner world onto their outer world.

Back In Time

What this is likely to show is that they have experienced trauma, and this could be the result of what took place when they were younger. That’s if they have experienced life in this way for a very long time.

Their early years may have been a time when they experienced some kind of abuse and/or neglect. This would have overwhelmed their system and stopped them from feeling as though it was safe for them to exist.


Taking this into account, it is going to be incredibly difficult for one to stay in their body unless this trauma is released. But the sooner one starts to do this, the sooner they will be able to get back into their body and to stay there.

This is something that can take place with the assistance of a therapist or a healer.
