What is the astral plane? You will get different answers to this question. No two answers are alike. Since there is no evidence for the existence of an astral realm or plane or level, you will not get any definite answer based on scientific studies. The answer you will get is the product of individual astral travelers’ experiences in the astral. If you experience it yourself, you might have a totally different story to relate.
To put it simply, the astral plane is just a level of existence like the physical world. And there are many planes of existence like the astral and the physical plane. Each plane of existence has its own rules, which must be followed.
In fact, what most people call “heaven” and “hell” are really astral realms vibrating at different frequencies. One could call the earth and the planes lower than it “hell” because earth and the lower astral levels vibrate at a lower frequency. The higher astral planes vibrate at a higher frequency and are beautiful, which is why they are called “heaven.”
The astral realm has 7 planes of existence. The highest planes are called Mental, Buddhic, and so on. The highest plane, which cannot be explained in human words, is the seat of collective or universal consciousness or God, whatever you might wish to call it. When entities leave for the higher realms, they are pure consciousness without any vehicle such as the physical or the astral body.
Entities enter the physical realm to learn valuable lessons. As they progress, their vibrations rise and they become capable of gaining access to the higher astral planes.
The astral planes, which are slightly higher than earth, comprise human thoughts and emotions. Since people are constantly thinking, the astral realm is full of mental debris, which makes life very confusing for first time projectors. The higher astral realms however do not contain any astral debris.
The astral plane is a great place for learning. It is the doorway between earth and the higher realms of existence. The astral plane might be fashioned like the physical world with schools and institutions, where people learn and work on projects, just as they do on earth.
The astral realm is populated by two varieties of spirits-those who have passed away from the earth and the astral counterparts of those who are living on earth. This implies that we live out many parallel lives even while on earth.
While on earth, we derive help, knowledge, and inspiration from the higher planes. This is a place for reconciliation, learning, forgiveness, understanding, healing, and compassion. In the astral plane, you have the opportunity to set things that have gone wrong on earth right.
After we “die,” we go to the astral plane and spend some time mulling over our life on earth. We will evaluate and assess ourselves, meet our loved ones, deal with negativities, and prepare ourselves for another life on earth.
