Astral Phenomena, Part 2

The family ghost, whom we generally find in the stock stories of the supernatural as an appanage of the feudal castle, may be either a thought-form or an unusually vivid impression in the astral light, or again he may really be an earth-bound ancestor still haunting the scenes in which his thoughts and hopes centred … Continue reading Astral Phenomena, Part 2

Apparitions or ghosts may stand for almost any inhabitant of the astral plane.
