People have been left with all kind of questions following the nail-biting twists of Netflix's new hit mini-series Behind Her Eyes.

The show follows Louise, a single mum with a son and a part-time job in a psychiatrist's office. She begins an affair with her boss, David, and strikes up an unlikely friendship with his wife Adele.

As well as the cheating scandal, the show also explores the topics of lucid dreams and astral projection.

Astral projection is a term used in esotericism to describe an intentional out-of-body experience that assumes the existence of a soul called an "astral body".

This is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside it throughout the universe.

Many Netflix fans have been wondering whether this is actually real though after the show and if it can be learned.

Estella, a psychic reader at Psychic Sofa, spoke to Daily Star about the ancient practice.

She commented: "The idea of Astral travel (planing/projection) comes from ancient beliefs and occurs in multiple cultures, and in turn, is supposed to bring an out of body experience.

"It is known to be often associated with dreams and meditation where the subject goes into a deep inner trance-like state where leaving the body is through the power of the mind in order to make observations of someone or something.

"From a scientific point of reasoning, there is no evidence to date that this has been proved to be possible.

"But, I do personally feel that the more spiritual you are in life, the easier it is to be able to train your mind to go on a journey outside of the body as long as you know the place/area where you hope to travel to and have the determination to succeed because often spiritual people are very aware of meditation and what this can bring about and coincides with Astral Travel."

Talking about how astral travel is achieved, Estella said you need to be totally relaxed and clear away any negativity you're holding on to.

She continued: "Astral travel can be done either alone or indeed with someone you feel very connected to, ie perhaps a soul partner or twin flame, making the energy and possibility of doing so perhaps even easier and far stronger with two.

"I feel that being totally relaxed in your mind and clearing away any negativity that you hold on to, can bring this unique experience to light and therefore be able to adapt to it and to learn to do it, but often people do not allow themselves to release any positive/negative thoughts from their minds or find it easy, in order to be free to travel in this way so it could potentially take a long time with lots of practice to be able to do this properly, again as in meditation.

"Astral projection has been classified as a pseudoscience that can be based on factual findings/statements but not compatible with any scientific methods to date that I know of.

"Starting Astral Projection by allowing soul separation is the way to begin where working with your body and mind together is the first step to success, but, again it is not something that is initially done as soon as you decide you want to do this as it can take complete practice and determination for weeks, months or even years to adapt to."

Behind Her Eyes viewers have been left fascinated by the show; especially the huge double-twist ending.

One wrote online: "Just finished #behindhereyes on netflix and i’m gonna need about 3-4 business days to recover because HONEY i’ve not moved in about twenty minutes."

While another added: "Another wrote: "Omg what did I just watch #BehindHerEyes must be the biggest mindf**k of the century f**k I did not expect that ending and the whole thing is insaaaane ohmy im still processin evrything my mind is all over the place rn ohmy."
