Your spirit has the ability to be where ever God through His Holy Spirit needs it to be. For Example:
Your in the livingroom watching a movie, and you think to yourself, I want a coffee. You stand up and head for the kitchen, maybe ten steps what ever, but by the time you get there, you've forgotten why you were going there.
In those ten steps, for what ever the reason your spirit has been called away from you by God, so obviously, your body is doing it's thing walking to the kitchen, but your mind, your conscience, your spirit is not there with you so you can't remember why you are going to the kitchen.
You return to the livingroom, to your movie, then all of a sudden, you remember Oh Ya! I wanted a coffee. Your spirit has returned, and you go again and get your coffee.
My spirit has stood at the throne of God. I have had two girlfriends that lived halfway around the world and have visited them. I remember one instance. I had a girlfriend in Nigeria. Our spirits wer so closely linked.
One day she E-mailed me in the morning, and told me that she was laying in her bed with a bad headache, and suddenly I entered the room. I held her in my arms and stroked her fore-head and the headache disappeared.
I had just gotten up from bed, but during the night, I dreamed that she needed me, and I went to her.
She was laying in her bed with a bad headache from a bump on the head she'd received the day before, and as I held her in my arms, I rubbed her head, easing her pain.
Hope this helps you to see that your spirit can travel, it is a spirit.
