The astral dimension is inhabited by a wide variety of beings.
- They can be called non-physical subtle energy life-forms, while Carlos Castenada quite correctly calls them inorganic beings. Some of them have a positive nature (benevolent) and some have negative nature (malevolent). Their intelligence can vary enormously.
- The majority of them has their own agendas and generally do not like being bothered and interfered with. Not counting the high level light beings like demigods, spirit masters and angels, if we want to range them, we can see them as helpful, occasionally helpful, than playful, neutral and up to mischievous, malicious, nasty and evil.
Astral being can appear in a variety of illusory forms. Some of the less intelligent types are animalistic and predatory by nature, similar to animal and insect wildlife in the physical dimension. These not so intelligent, animalistic and negative types can be simply called Astral Wildlife. Although they come from somewhere in or near the astral world, many of them are able to operate in the real time zone. Some of them, unfortunately, seem to enjoy tormenting astral projectors, especially the beginners.
One can find absolutely everything in the astral dimension. In some way, the astral can be like an ocean: you will meet fish, octopus dolphins, whales, sharks, sea snakes, crabs, shrimp, jellyfish, turtles, penguins, seals, etc, etc. Some of the ocean beings are friendly, some are harmless, some are harmful when, annoyed, disturbed or hungry, some are unintentionally harmful, while some are dangerous all the time. You can also find many travelers there, some even from far off regions, found flying, sailing or swimming.
As many parts of the astral dimension are full of life, it is quite rare to meet some interested beings there, but it can happen occasionally. Practically every astral plane and realm has its local inhabitants. They mostly live in specific realms or areas and very often they are completely unaware about any other reality or dimension than their own. They are most often amazed when faced with some astral traveler. Some other types you can meet are well aware of other realms and dimensions, but most of them have no or little patience with projectors and usually ignore them.
In some way, approaching astral inorganic being you do not know is like approaching strangers in our physical reality. Most strangers tend to ignore other people, even thought they are politely asked some questions. Most of the astral beings, like most of the strangers, don’t seem to enjoy being involved into with the relations of strangers. They usually have far more important things to do with their time in the astral plane.
During your projections, you will, of course, occasionally meet up wits some other astral travelers like yourself, but most of them are not even aware they are projecting. It seems that the awareness and memories of the astral projectors from their physical existence, of who and what they are, varies greatly. Many of them look like they are dreaming or sleepwalking. Some are just going with the flow of their astral life and events. Many of them are completely surprised when it is stressed to them that they can fly and do all other astral abilities.
This variability in memory and awareness can be caused by many factors. Most common are the energetic development and activity, the power of the energy flowing into the projector from his physical or etheric body, and whether or not the projector has made a conscious astral projection, keeping his/her/it awareness afterward. The conscious astral projection or out-of-body-experience causes a much greater energy flow into the projected astral double. It is not a case with the unconscious, sleep projectors.
The most important thing to know about any of the inorganic beings, intelligent or not intelligent, you might come across in the astral dimension is that they are not all creations or dream beings from your subconscious mind. They have their own existence, purpose and meaning, whatever that is. In most cases, they are not just decorations in the astral realm to be used by any astral traveler. Most inorganic beings do not like being annoyed, questioned by the constant stream of lost and meddlesome astral projectors.
Of course, some astral beings will accept conversation and even encourage and help astral travelers, especially if projectors are sincere, courteous and positive in their approach. In the astral plane, like attracts like, so if you are friendly, sincere, if you feel unconditional love, you are far more likely to meet beings that are similar to you.
If, however, happens to meet some malevolent or evil being, first thing you must know is – do not fear! Fear will block your abilities, so the being can make you some troubles. Stay calm and with dignity; whatever it try to do with you, you can always leave it with only a positive though to travel somewhere else. Or you can return back into your physical body in a part of the second. You can also declare to it, „I am neither with you, nor against you. Leave me alone.” If your will is strong enough, it will soon disappear. Just don’t be frightened. Nothing really bad can happen to you.[ff id=”2″]
