The planes of existences are different milestones of existence that change with the vibration of the energetic frequency of the entity that is trying to perceive such planes. These milestones can be separated out usually into 7 main planes of existence, but there has been known to be subsets of planes with their own purposes. These planes of existence make up our universe, and are the levels of ascension on the way up to source consciousness. These levels have been studied by different magickal traditions, and have been named differently throughout history to make bunches of different systems to show the layout of our universe. These systems can coexist with each other, and be superimposed on top of each other in order to make a layered map of everybody’s understanding. These planes of existence are helpful to know in order to understand various different parts of the universe, and their connection to everything.
Physical plane- the physical plane is the one that you are most familiar with. It is dense, and solid and the energy here is very slow in a vibrating frequency sort of way. The physical plane is home to everything that you have grown accustomed to, such as animals, humans, trees, plants, and your physical body. In this plane of existence entities will feel separated from each other giving them the illusion that they are not connected to anything. The physical plane maybe mundane, and uninteresting to us, but it is a very unique place among the planes, and provides a very important space to learn, and grow.
Etheric plane- The etheric plane is the world between worlds. It is also sometimes called the in between. It is the place you go when you meditate, or dream, and is the place where elementals, and the fae live. The etheric plane has the most dense non physical energy, and is very deeply connected to the physical. So deeply connected in fact that a good number of people do not even remove them when talking about planes of existence. This plane like the physical plane is controlled by time, and space, but it has been known to become distorted at times. The etheric plane is our bridge to the higher planes of existence, and will be a conduit for our spiritual progression.
The Veil- The veil is a wall that separates the dense more physical planes from the spiritual ones. The veil can be passed through, but only by entities that are skilled enough to do so. In certain places, and at certain times the veil can actually be weaker, and less intrusive on workings to connect with higher frequency entities, and places. The Veil is an important wall that keep certain things where they’re supposed to be, while allowing others to do what they please. In essence it works more like a gateway that can be opened but chooses to stay close.
Lower astral plane- The lower astral plane is a place of a dark undertone, and is filled with entities that are not evil, but more aligned with darker energies. This is the place most commonly explored in astral projection. This is the first plane of existence where time, and space becomes irrelevant. Entities that usually dwell with in the lower astral plane are usually filled with lower denser emotions, thoughts, and feelings, though this is not always the case. The lower astral is also home to a lot of thought-forms, tulpas, and servitors due to the fact that they are mostly grounded to the physical plane. The lower astral plane maybe a deep dark place, but it is the first step to the rest of the spiritual world.
Middle astral plane- The middle astral plane is as it sounds a very neutral ground between light, and dark energies in the astral plane. It is the place where most of the astral entities can be found, and is a good combination between both of the higher, and lower astral planes. This makes it take on a lot of both of their features. The Middle astral plane is the no-man’s land of the astral plane where beings from both sides can gather, and connect with each other. It is said the environment of this place is a lot like earth. The astral plane in general is where our consciousness resides between lifetimes, and it said to be the place where we go when we die, after we cross over the Veil. All of the astral plane is highly connected to emotional energy, and can even be shaped by it. For this reason is why they separated usually into 3, but the middle ground is where the neutral party can meet, and experience the astral plane.
Higher astral plane- The higher astral plane is a place in the astral with a whole lot more higher based light beings. This part of the astral plane is said to be extremely beautiful, and awe inspiring. This place is the very last part of the astral before ascending to a different type of energy state. This is a place for higher understanding, and wisdom. The beings that exists here usually have a more sunny disposition, and are known for being wise, and spiritually powerful, though this is not always the case.
Causal plane- This plane runs adjacent to the akashic plane, and mental plane. This is a place in which you combine back with your soul, or higher self, It is said to be where these things reside while you explore, and live in the lower planes. It is the place where you come together with all your various bodies, memories, and understandings. You become whole in this plane of existence, and everything that is truly you comes together here to form the highest possible you that is still separate from everything.
Akashic plane- This plane runs adjacent to the causal plane, and mental plane. This is the plane where the information of the universe is at your fingertips. It is a place of knowledge, learning, and wisdom, and also acts as an archive for the entire universe. What is saved here is everything from the known universe. All the knowledge one could ever want. Recorded, and documented by the energies that were present at the time. Giving all possible views, standpoints, and outlooks on the subjects, and matter in order to get down to the very meaning of truth.
Mental plane- This plane runs adjacent to the akashic plane, and causal plane. The mental plane is said to exist outside time, and space. This plane is completely comprised of thoughts, and are even created by them, but the main part of the mental in the title is actually more of a connection of consciousness between entities rather than this higher control of reality from mental thought. This is also the first plane were unified consciousness comes back into being, and you become a lot more strongly connected to everything around you through thought. This is the plane where you will be able to meet up with your soul groups, and fully connect with your soul group. It is said here you can also subdivide your consciousness, and become various different parts of you in multiple places all at once. This plane is the start of the coming together of consciousness, and is where you start to become less you, and more us.
The abyss- This is known as the higher veil, and acts just like the lower one. This wall keep spirits that are not ready down in the lower planes. Though certain information, energies, and beings can come down from it.
(At this point it,becomes very hard to explain the higher planes of existence, and I’m sorry if none of the rest of this makes any sense from here on out.)
Messianic Plane- In this plane of existence you come together with a bunch of other souls, and become more less of a individual. You become unified, and complete with the entities, and energies that were not you originally, but are now you. You love, and understand the oneness you now share with the entities around you, and that are you. This is not to say that you become them, but much rather you become connected to them on such a level that you can’t help love, and understand them.
Buddhic plane, Intuitional plane, or Unity Plane- In this plane you begin to combined with everything else that you are not previously connected to. You combine, and connect with all beings, all places, and all energies you become no longer you, but the whole of source. You will still a perception of you in this plane of existence though. In this plane of existence you are in the state in which you are everything, but yet you are also you. It’s like super collective consciousness.
Atmic plane- This is a place of freedom, and bliss. This is a place where the confines of the soul no longer exist, and there is no more you. This is the plane of the pure spirit, and is said to be the place of self-realization. This is the place where you as yourself is annihilated, but transmuted into the true spiritual self.
Monadic Plane- This is the plane where the monad, holy spirit, or oversoul exist. This is the plane where the spark of source is used to create new entities, and souls.
Adi Plane, Divine Plane, or The Unknown- This is said to be the highest plane of existence, and it is said what is on that plane is undescribable. It is also said that you combine with source, and actually become it.
