"Our understanding of the Higher Planes Many who reach this site will come with previous understanding about what is commonly called the Astral Plane - one of the higher planes; and may also have understanding of the other higher planes. Please understand that what is written here is not necessarily counter to your experiences - there are many levels of the planes and many many different ways to experience them. When it comes to your experiences, and the experiences of other people, it is not up to any one person to say "no, you are wrong, you cannot have experienced what you experienced". Trust in yourself. You are real."
