018. The Astral Plane
Statues & Secrets
If we look at the inspirational image our attention is quickly drawn to the statues and we miss the open door. Are there secrets behind this door? If so, we just need to find them. In the same way, we must also refocus our attention and understand that we are operating from the astral plane via the earth plane. Contrary to popular belief, that the earth is our home, it is the astral one that is where we really reside. The astral plane is where our spirit originates from, that is to say, your roots are on the astral plane, you are only on earth for a small time.
The astral plane is linked closely to the earth plane. In fact, within the astral plane there exists an exact replica of the earth plane, with houses, cities, mountains and people. It is not really a replica, but a counterpart of the earth plane. Everything on this earth, you included, has an astral counterpart. Remember you are spirit in body. Your true home and your roots are in spirit not on the earth. You visit the earth from time to time in order to experience it and its lessons. Therefore, even while on the earth plane you are spirit, with your connection to the spirit world. This astral counterpart represents the link, so to speak, between the spirit world and us.
If you were not living on multiple levels of spirit simultaneously, then you could not experience such things as mediumship, extended sensory perception, out of body experiences or even dreams. It is because you are living life AS SPIRIT ON EARTH that you are able to shift from one level of awareness to another, back and forth; sometimes spontaneously, other times quite intentionally.
There is a strong link and connection between the earth plane and the astral plane. It is through the astral plane that so much of the spiritual help and assistance is given. The astral plane represents the “doorway” (remembering our image) between the earth plane and the higher levels of the spirit world. It is our choice to enter it for further tuition from our guides. Every single one of us can meet with our guides which is a conscious choice we can make.
Therapeutic, Love & Compassion
Within the astral plane, there is the opportunity to amend what may have gone wrong and to become even more intimately involved with your family and friends, in a truly spiritual manner. What is even more amazing is that once you step through to the astral plane and enter the next level of the spirit world, the degree of love and intimacy magnifies itself a thousand fold. Indeed, it is a place of work, but of far greater significance, the astral plane is a place of healing, love and compassion.
Very few spirits become stuck between the different planes. Some certainly do have difficulty in making their earthly transition, but there are always loved ones and special spirit friends who endeavour to help in that transition. If for some reason, a spirit is just not ready or willing to make the transition complete he or she will fall into a sleep state and remain quiet, until the time comes for a reawakening into the spirit world. Furthermore, that reawakening is aided through love and healing by those special spirit helpers.
Spirit Essence – Healing & Transformation
The astral plane is where your whole essence returns to upon departing the earthly life, through physical death. Everyone takes goes there and spends a certain amount of time within this area of the spirit world. It is within the astral plane that you deal with those areas of healing, transformation and forgiveness. It is here where you gather with your loved ones. There are special spirit emissaries that help you in this process of assessment. Because the astral plane is where you deal with some of the more negative elements of yourself, some may refer to it as a place of evil and negativity. This could not be further from the truth. It is a world of confrontation, assessment, evaluation and looking at oneself face to face. Indeed, for some these processes may be difficult; however, the result is summed up in two words.... Healing and Transformation.
With the introduction, I stressed that we must understand we are operating out of the astral plane via the earth plane. I have had a number of queries regarding astral projection, but once you have connected with it you would remember your visitation. So yes this is a conscious thing that happens and all that are involved in this will remember it. So why don’t we project more to the astral world? I would have ask... “What is stopping you?” (Checkout my note again 007. Astral Travel) Take some time; it is now possible to go there as often as you like. This is about the awareness of the astral plane and that you are in it already. I suppose that it is a reverse connection like a two way journey.
If we return to our image and can make the transition through the door, there is a new plane for us to discover. Our guides are their waiting to assist and teach us. Our departed loved ones are also there. They will assure us on a continuous base that they are fine and happy where they are.
So take that long awaited journey through the door, you might just be surprised what you discover about you and your loved ones.
