The Astral Plane (Lower, Middle, & Upper Astral Explained)

Understanding what the astral plane is and how it works is crucial to understanding your spiritual development. Today we’ll be discussing what the astral plane is and the various levels that make it up. The astral plane is a non-physical level of existence that we exist in every night when we sleep and when we consciously astral project. The lower planes of the astral are where most of humanity’s low vibrational collective consciousness resides. The upper astral is associated with higher vibrational frequencies, light, and enlightened beings. Through conscious spiritual development we can raise ourselves up into the higher levels of the astral. What is the astral plane? The astral plane is fundamentally a level of non-physical existence. We as conscious beings reside on multiple planes of existence at once. We have in a sense 7 different bodies. Just as our physical body resides in a location in space and time, our astral body resides somewhere in the astral plane. When we sleep at night we enter the astral in our dreams. When we astral project we enter into this non-physical realm consciously. see also is astral projection dangerous? Even though the astral is a non-physical plane of existence it is just as real as the physical world. We also have the ability to move up and down the levels of the astral through conscious spiritual development. Astral plane map Image credit: Astral Doorway on YouTube.

There are simply higher and lower consciousness areas of the astral that can be accessed in various ways. Levels of the astral realm There aren’t “fixed” levels of the astral plane designated as lower, middle, or upper. These are just relative terms to describe the levels of vibration that exist in the astral. Lower astral The lower astral is where the most unconscious and low vibration entities and beings exist. Remember this isn’t a physical location, but rather a description of vibration in the astral. The lower astral is where most of humanity’s consciousness resides in. The lower astral is full of fear, doubt, and negativity. Beings that reside in this level of frequency may be trapped in this realm due to unresolved issues, attachments, or negative karma. It’s advised to avoid the lower astral when astral traveling due to its unpleasant nature. Middle astral The middle astral is the transition vibrational location between the lower and upper astral planes. The middle astral is characterized by neutrality, and mix of lower and upper vibration. There is more clarity in the middle astral, but there isn’t enlightenment. It’s more of a low level neutral peace. Beings encountered in the middle astral plane vary widely. They may include guides, teachers, and helpers who assist individuals in their spiritual journey or entities with unresolved aspects from the lower astral plane. The middle astral offers transformation in frequency both upwards and further downwards. Upper astral The upper astral is where the highest frequencies are experienced. The upper astral is characterized by enlightened beings, widespread joy and peace, and total clarity. Beings encountered in the upper astral will be positive, full of love, and happy. There will be many enlightened and wise teachers to learn from in the upper astral. The upper astral is where you can have profound spiritual insights and transcend the limits placed on consciousness in the physical. How to move up the astral planes There are fewer and fewer human souls the further up the astral you go. Only the most enlightened and spiritually developed find themselves in the upper astral. When consciously astral projecting it isn’t too difficult to move ourselves into higher frequency planes. If you are consciously astral traveling, then simply ask be transported to a higher plane and you will find yourself there. Most of humanity is unable to consciously astral travel. In this case, to move yourself up in astral plane means raising your vibration and consciousness in general. This happens through spiritual development and growth. As you become more awake and enlightened in the physical realm your consciousness will reflect this shift in the astral.
