Sometimes forms of meditation focus upon reaching a different plane of existence that transcends the physical one that your body is present in. Often this plane is called the astral plane. But what exactly is the astral plane? Can it even be described?
I believe in a sort of "spirit world" that overlaps our own, and works a bit differently than ours does (basically throw out the laws of physics, etc. here).  This is how I see the Astral plane, at least in a nutshell.  I'm not coherent enough to actually sit here and try to give a decent explanation.

Is the astral plane the only other plane of existence other than the physical one? Or are there more?

Um, I really have no clue.  I think it's possible, but as to what types there might be, meh... brain cramp.

I've often come across references to subtle body, but what exactly is this? And can it really be seen as an aura?

I think I've heard of subtle body in reference from Scientology, but I'm not sure exactly.  I have heard of it though, and I think it equates basically to the spirit/soul.  As for auras, I see them as the physical body's way of noticing the spirit/soul.  So to my mind, yes, they are about the same, or at least very similar in effect.

I'd be interested in hearing responses to these questions, as this is a topic that really interests me.



I'm interested too, now.  Good topic to bring up.  Not something I would have thought of, but now that it's here, I'll be checking in from time to time.  I may even try to expand on my response about the astral plane eventually.

What you think is possible.  Anything that is possible can become real.  Therefore, reality is a state of mind.
