Hehe, found some quotes by Dr. Hawkins regarding the astral realms:
"It’s arrogance that makes you think you can play with the astral domains and not get singed. “The ancient mysteries of Woopah are yours” - you’ve just become glamorized. You just got hooked. You get mystified, impressed and glamorized. It is by your curiosity that they got you. If you can do it without getting entranced, okay, but you’re there, so you’re already entranced. It is the inner child that is still mystified by magic that is attracted to the astral.
Hesitation (in spiritual matters) sets you up as a mark to the astrals. They have been around for eons; they were already old at the time of Mesopotamia, which was their high point.
Being psychic is nothing at all; there’s a whole range of consciousness that’s all psychic, in the mid 500s, the so-called siddhis. I used to do them in front of witnesses. You have no idea how expert evil is at what it does. You’re already entranced because you went to a reading - if you’re already going, you’re already hooked by the glamour. You go to a psychic and she tells you, Your uncle got killed in a motorcycle accident, and you go, Wow.
By knowing the basic truths, you don’t have to go there. You sacrifice the kick of the experience. If you’re spiritually aligned, you can’t afford it. There’s disrespect for Divinity; you have so little respect for yourself that you go for a transitory solar plexus kick. Be thankful for your destiny to become enlightened.
If you “own” the siddhis as a personal power, you become a psychic clairvoyant and get caught in the glamour. People experience them routinely in the high 500s, and even lower in situations such as silent retreats. These are normal and not unique. It’s not the person that is the field."
