The astral realm may seem like some vague, faraway place, but it's actually far closer than you think. In fact, the majority of people spend most of their waking hours living halfway within the astral plane without even realizing it.
Your mind isn't separate from all the other minds in the world, and your mind is itself part of the astral plane. All minds exist in a subset of the astral called the mental realm. When you focus upon the “past”, your consciousness shifts to a part of the astral realm that stores memories, and there's a collective aspect of this called the Akashic Records. When you focus upon the “future”, you project yourself onto the astral and you visualize your desires in your own little section of it.
There's much talk about the Collective Consciousness, which is a very wonderful thing where everyone can work together to manifest beautiful dreams. Only problem is that it requires Consciousness, something collectively lacking at the moment. Instead, most people operate through the collective unconsciousness, a kind of nightmare where people work together to manifest what they don't want. The collective unconsciousness is full of struggle, pain and conflict, which is reflected in the life of the individual. Nobody really suffers alone either, you carry the whole of Humanity along with you, in both suffering and in joy.
There are those who understand very well how this all works, and they willingly manipulate the collective unconsciousness for their own gain. They go by many names, and they fight to make sure Humanity stays unconscious as it means enormous wealth and power for them. Because they operate largely through the astral, the vast majority of people have no idea they're even being influenced this way.
There's various forms of occult magic that deal directly with the manipulation of the astral. There's sigil magic, which deals with creating and putting energy into symbols. This may seem like something rarely practiced nowadays, but it's actually going on all day, every day. In the business world it's called branding, and instead of a sigil it's called a logo. Through things like advertising, people are trained to associate the logo with positive thoughts and emotions. They start to favor certain products without even realizing why.
Every letter is a magic symbol, and you string them together to spell words. Words are abstract, astral creations that are charged not only with meaning, but certain emotions as well. One good example of a highly charged word in the collective unconsciousness is “terrorism”. There's all sorts of chaos, confusion and anger floating around that word. The mere mention of it gets people all worked up and emotional, which is why rational thought regarding terrorism is so rare. Look at these highly charged words like terrorism, immigration, abortion and sex. Try to observe the emotions that arise without getting all caught up in those emotions. This is part of how you break free from their spell.
The idea of the collective unconsciousness is not some esoteric concept, it recently entered into pop culture, though under a different name. You probably know it as “the Matrix” a program designed to keep you working as a slave without you ever realizing what's really going on. Of course, it's really an astral program instead of a computer program, but there's really not that much difference between those two things. Computers were designed to imitate the human mind.
Now the astral realm is either the bridge between the Divine and material realms, or the separation between the two. With a Conscious Collective, we create Heaven on Earth, with an unconscious collective, we create hell. Through the former, we share Love and Joy, through the latter, we share fear and suffering. You've been told that humans collectively loving each other and releasing all their conflict is an impossible pipe-dream but that's little more than a lie that had to be told to help keep the Matrix in place.
Individually, we can't heal the whole collective, we can only heal ourselves. Not even Jesus or Buddha could heal the collective, what they did was pull themselves out of unconsciousness, and then offered their help to others. You can do this too, you can transcend the collective unconsciousness, become a bridge for the Divine and a brilliant Light among the collective. Each person who does this is an enormous benefit to Humanity as a whole, and they get the Joy of Divine Love for themselves as well. Not a bad deal if you ask me. The more people do this, the more the collective rises up and the unconsciousness is dispelled. And that's only the Beginning...
