Astral Entities - Spirit or Self - A Chat with Jade Shaw and Luigi Sciambarella

04/23/2020 Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend a brief zoom chat with some like minded folks in the field of consciousness expansion and exploration. I wanted to reflect on some of the things that were discussed and document my personal takeaways.

I attended the chat because one of the biggest reasons I am interested in Astral Travel is to connect with loved ones who have passed over, not just for myself but for others as well. As a medium I thought traversing the cosmos in my astral body would be much more cut and dry than trying to decipher these mental messages, but of course it's not that easy is it?

As it turns out when I encounter passed over folks in the astral, their messages aren't always easy to interpret. For example in a recent encounter with my father he hugged me and said the words to me "You're such a good brother, you let me not be an such an angry father." Now if I tried to take these words at face value they would be confusing as I am a literal brother to no one, being a female only child. But if I'm taking the entire experience into consideration and the emotions behind it, his words truly make sense to me. Since his passing our relationship has changed and the relationship of brotherly love would certainly apply. He was an angry father and since his passing I have witnessed the release of his anger. So how much of our interaction does my mind have an influence on? Did I facilitate an entire meeting in my mind because of my desire to continue my relationship with my father? Was he really there and were his words just my mind's only way to interpret the feelings he was trying to convey? Or were the words simply something I desperately wanted to hear him say manifested in my own self-conscious for the purpose of closure. Luigi and Jade did a great job beginning to answer these questions.
