The Lower Astral, on the other hand, is the 2 or 3 layers of the Astral ordered around the lower vibrationary energy. They get a bad rap, but being there isn't unpleasant unless you deliberately want it to be. They're just more, well, primal
I think you misunderstood what I meant by hell though. I dont believe in the Christian eternal hell where condemned souls are baked, fried and all the while being prodded with Satan's pitchfork.
I do believe in lower astral planes which from what I read are extremely unpleasant
places to end up in. I also believe those souls will eventually leave those planes for higher ones, once they mature in spirituality
