- EMOTIONS AND THOUGHTS AFFECT THE QUALITY OF ASTRAL EXPERIENCE
Here is more on improving the quality of our astral plane experience. This blog has to do with consciously nurturing ‘good’ emotions and avoiding ‘bad’ emotions (such as rage, depression, or worry).
Thoughts and emotions are inextricably interlinked. Thoughts, like the physical body and the emotions, must be kept highly tuned in order to have a positive astral (i.e., emotional) experience.
THINGS THAT WORSEN THE ASTRAL EXPERIENCE
May I suggest avoiding popular media such as television and movies, avoiding music that rouses the primitive passions, and avoiding as well habits of viewing pornography? Also, avoidance of loud or irritating recurrent noises, such as motor noises?
THINGS THAT IMPROVE THE ASTRAL EXPERIENCE
Instead, to calm and train the mind, be in peaceful surroundings. Read or view uplifting topics, such as, for example, books of philosophy, books that increase wisdom and knowledge, or movies such as those provided by Spiritual Cinema Circle …

In times of trouble, the grounds of a church, or your place of worship, will offer relief. Reading your sacred book will also help, as will wearing a ‘talisman’ such as a cross or other symbol of that which is holy.
These are only a few of the many ways to uplift mind and emotions. Arthur Powell goes into great detail, as to the why and wherefore, below.
EMOTIONS AND THOUGHTS AFFECT THE QUALITY OF ASTRAL EXPERIENCE
compiled by Arthur E. Powell
In the School of Theosophy book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell …
Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973.
… there are two passages to do with consciously nurturing ‘good’ emotions and avoiding ‘bad’ emotions (such as rage, depression, or worry).
I have added the page references below, rather than quoting extensively from the source, so as not to infringe on the copyright for the book. I realize this is a difficulty for the reader, and hope it will not be insuperably so. The first passage is …
Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973,“Chapter VII. Physical Life,” page 70, first full paragraph 4 beginning “The Emotional Life …” through page 74, the first full paragraph ending “… maintain that position.”
The second passage is in the same chapter, page 76, the first paragraph beginning “It will be recollected …” through page 78, fourth paragraph ending “… responding to them.”
The topics covered in these two passages, in order of presentation, are:
- The Emotional Life
- Manifestation of Desire: The ‘Dark Elementals’
- Habits of Thought and Emotion
- How to Manifest Higher Astral Matter
- The Influence of Projected Thoughts and Emotions
- The Influence of Nature Spirits
- Curbing the ‘Desire Elemental’
- The Mental Life
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
