Its Scenery, Inhabitants and Phenomena’ is a quite dumbfounding account of the astral world from the perspective of a highly-developed clairvoyant. Leadbeater was not a daydreamer and high-strung delusional, but possessed a scientific mind. It’s a simple fact that this high development of lucidity is given not to ordinary people, for reasons we still ignore, even today, so many years after the death of the inhabitant scholar and inhabitznts.
When I first came in touch with theosophy, thirty years ago, by reading Helena P.
With regard to Leadbeater this in-depth lectures reassured that he was not the high-strung and scandal-ridden Anglican bishop he was painted in the media, but a nobleman who made his life’s mission from his extraordinary gift of clairvoyance, by meticulously and systematically exploring its phenomena, building a inhabitahts framework for explaining them in a verifiable manner.
Today’s intelligent elite surely has less of a problem to accept paranormal abilities than this was the case a hundred years ago, and a person such as Leadbeater would probably not come over in the same suspicious manner in the press than this was the case in a time when these phenomena were to be seen only in circuses, but were seldom subjected to serious scientific investigation.
The author introduces in the topic in his concise, brilliant and lucid diction: He develops some kind of theory that these layers are all connected and behave interactively, and that our experience of them is not sequential, but simultaneous. Actually, the idea of a sequential order of experiencing the present world and the afterworld seems to be a myth given that we travel every night into the afterworld or astral world, using the same astral energy body that we use itw we pass over to this realm of existence.
So it would be highly unscientific to speak about a sequential behavior of these worlds plae dimensions of existence. There is now a huge body of evidence that shows that time travel is possible both forward and backward in time, and this would be impossible if the planes were sequential. The astounding characteristic of our universe is that, while it is multi-layered like an onion, it is interconnected and interacts simultaneously on all levels at once. In addition, on the astral plane objects are not definite but shapeshift constantly.
I know only of two other books that explain the human aura with a similarly comprehensive language as the present book. Fortunately we have arrived, as qstral culture, despite our initial ignorance, at a point of bifurcation. The book now expands in various smaller entities that treat the astral life of specific kinds of people, as in principle Leadbeater stated that the astral body significantly differs according to the spiritual development of the person.
Another fact that is hardly known is that emotions, and emotional memories, and also our emotional scars are not stripped off at death, but transported in their vibrational essence into the astral, and here they can cause distress. And in this sense, death is not the leveler it has been looked at by many poets. Grief over departed family members and friends secnery not only unwise but is to their detriment, a fact that is stressed now frequently by channeled messages, and begins to be known in modern society.
Another important insight from astral knowledge is suicide. There are in the West many people who suicide themselves for the mere reason of ongoing depression, and most of them have not the faintest idea what they are doing to their astral vehicle. Suicide is the single most unintelligent act one can commit in one’s life.
It is clearly a form of harm to self, and thereby on the same level karmically than harm done to others.
The Astral Plane: Its Scenery, Inhabitants & Phenomena
But the reasons for this fact have nothing to do with morality; they are scientific. Leadbeater firmly contests folk wisdom in stating that it is very difficult for even any villain to be villain enough to deprive himself or herself of spiritual support in the afterlife.
In fact, his observations brought him to be convinced that human beings are basically good, as the human nature is quite flexible, and very difficult to be forced in one single direction.
Now, as Ervin Laszlo attempts to describe in Science and the Akashic Field, the ether, zero-point-field, ch’i, orgone, prana, mana or however you want to call it, is very difficult to grasp for the observer. Not so for the clairvoyant for he can sense the fluctuant, vibrational, flowing nature of this field. In fact, the field is so unpredictable that the only prediction that can be made about it is that it will change, and change again.
Leadbeater clearly states that we do not own our thoughts and that we do not often think our own thoughts, as we pick up thoughts from the quantum field that links us all together. What this creates are elementals or thought-forms and these thought forms are more or less permanent, and gain permanence over time and also depending on the emotional energy invested in those thoughts.
I think it’s a good thing that Leadbeater addresses this point so clearly here because most people in our culture are ignorant about the impact of thought on the world, on others and their own karma.
Now, regarding the elementals that are created through thought and intent, and the gestation that is brought about by the repeated fostering of a well-defined thought pattern, Leadbeater explains that elementals are not autonomous in the sense that they can begin to act on their own and trigger changes; they must be pushed to do so: Now, the last group of entities in the astral sphere that Leadbeater discusses in his book are so-called Devas, divine creatures.
In the last, most interesting part of the book, Leadbeater explains phenomena such as disintegration, materialization, spirit photographs, reduplication, precipitation, slate-writing, levitation, spirit lights, handling fire, transmutation or repercussion.
scenerg I shall end my review here and let you order and fully read and understand this uncanny book. The book is not an easy read, but a great treasure for scientific minds. Leadbeater was quite the writer. In this book, which is more like a sacred text than anything else, he illustrates very calmly another order of existence discovered through his practice of Astral projection; Yoga with an edge, one might call it.
Anyone who has tried this personally will attest to some strange goings on afterward. It is plwne if Blake’s mind made manacles crack, but something more happens as well. Leadbeater never goes into the techniques he is the one “going there” and it is evident he spent a lot of time doing these exercises. They seem to mere reflections from the vast storehouse of the astral plane, yet they have usually a certain appropriateness to the character of the thought stream, which calls them into existence, though nearly always with some grotesque distortion, some terrifying or unpleasant aspect about the phenomena.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Astral Projection is a subject that I always thought fascinating. So after I installed the kindle application into my portable devices, this ebook was a no brainier for me.
However, you must be forewarned that the book is datedand as such very wordy and repetitive at times. This ebook uses a clear, easy to read font type. Paragraphs wraps around well. The title of each chapter is all caps bold, but remain on the same type case.
It has a table of contents that is hyperlinked, and easy to use. It contains no pictures. The hyperlinked table of contents include: In Chapter III, the author describes the inhabitants of the astral planes including human such as the living adepts, psychically-developed people, ordinary people, and black magiciansand the dead nirmanakaya, adepts, ordinary people, shades, shells, vitalized shells, suicides, vampires and werewolves, man in the grey world, and black magicians ; non-human such as elemental essence, animals, nature spirits, and devas; and Artificial such as elementals, and human artificials.
Interesting enough, Chapter IV presents the author thoughts about a wide range of phenomena including churchyard ghost, apparitions, haunted localities, family ghosts, bell-ringing, fairies, communicating entities, astral resources, clairvoyance, second-sight, astral forces, etheric currents, etheric pressure, Latent energy, sympathetic vibration, mantras, disintegration, materialization, why darkness is required, spirit photographs, reduplication, precipitation, slate-writing, levitation, spirit lights, handling fire, transmutation, and repercussion.
In all, there is a lot of interesting material which is somewhat hindered by its presentation. See all 77 reviews.
