Terro Wrote:if you are subscribing to the most common delineations and assertions of the Astral, the lower planes are associated with a lower energy "frequency" and usually baser instincts such as fear and anger, which is one possible explanation for near death experiences resulting in a memory of a hellish environment in some circumstances. These are also considered to be less organized than others given the propensity for animal-like emotion and action associated with base instincts. Although certain animals do display hierarchy in a pack type society, this would make up the exception rather than the norm as far as I could tell.
I usually do not honor most structure and organization of astral or consider it likely or credible based on the larger portion of the astral plane being comprised of the subconscious of the traveler. I could fully believe in my head that I am Michael Jackson, and if so, I will appear as such when astrally traveling. I could encounter something frightening, my mind might associate that fear aspect and represent it in my mind's eye as an IRS agent, where someone else might represent it as a clown.
Haha, that'd be awesome, Terro.
For some reason, I have the image of wandering around in a dumpster-filled alleyway where people are in cardboard boxes and there are others searching for food. As I watch these poor people and walk cautiously through the alley, all of a sudden, this clown pops out of thin air about ten feet in front of me.
I don't know about you, but that clown, in such a non-clowny place, would make me laugh like crazy xD.
... Until everyone else turns into clowns, too!
But I have yet to give you a proper welcome, Hanna.
Yes, everything you say *is* hard to believe. I'm not going to deny that. Doesn't make it impossible, it just means more work to convince me as to why it is as it is. Considering the amount of questions you're already receiving, I will probably already find some solace in your answers. I'll stall on the more in-depth ones.
So far, however, all I've heard you talk about is the astral. What effects on your everyday life does your otherkin qualities bring, if any at all? Does your otherkin self only kick in when you reach the astral plane?
