"There is an assumption that the middle realm is your physical plane of existence - being the place between the lower realms and the higher realms where you dwell. This is only partially true. What the ancients speak of as the middle world is actually a whole different realm that’s very similar to this one. It is an astral overlay with slightly different detail which helps you differentiate it if you pay close attention. It completely overlaps and intertwines with your physical reality. It is the energetic reflection of your own world - liken it to how you have your body and your astral body. This realm is the astral body of your planetary body.
The great secret here is that this is the plane of existence which effects your own plane of third dimensional reality the closest and vice versa. This is the space where mind and matter meet upon your planet, much as you are the fusion of mind and matter as a being in your main reality. This is the plane where the lost spirits of the deceased wander until they can move on. It is where the more mischievous nature spirits also reside as well as what you may term as lower astral beings and astral wild-life.
This plane is plugged into duality more than the higher and lower realms which both have beings of more of a benevolent orientation. As a free-will zone echoing your own physical planet, entities here are still playing out duality in lesser and greater degrees, so there is a lot of danger here. Just as humans are neither fully ‘good’ or ‘evil’ as a set of beings but rather varying based upon who they are as individuals, so it is with the entities that exist in this realm.
But the greatest danger is its confusion. When you visit this realm it is common to become unsure of if you are awake within your body or whether you are visiting with your astral body. This confusion carries over to the spirits who are not sure if they are in their body or not - except that they no longer have a body to return to. It is such spirits that need help crossing over - but this like all work in this realm is highly dangerous.
This realm can be accessed and manipulated without leaving the body, however there are great benefits of working within this realm while out of body. What benefits are those? The ones that are beyond the common scope of possibilities as humans in the third dimensional realm….the possibilities to alter matter without physically interacting with it. This includes telekinesis, bilocation, teleportation, physical miracles and remote viewing within the present. Most importantly the most crucial planetary gridwork can be done here. The problem is that these abilities should be rarely sought after and many metaphysical seekers that search out such things and find them in this plane successfully often pay a deep price in one fashion or another.
If you find yourself here or are guided here for some reason there are a few things you can do to help protect yourself. One is to call upon your High Guides, Angels, Deities and other Allies for protection. It is imperative that you try not to interact with any beings that approach you on this plane but rather wish them well in their progression as an entity towards the light and ask (or command with your free will, if they refuse) to leave you be. It is also crucial that you keep reminding yourself of who you are and that you are indeed not in your body. Also, try to keep yourself in alignment with the Earth Mother and pay her respect and ask to assist you. Your intentions must be pure for your reason for being here, and your motive should not be experimentation or stroke a metaphysical ego as any impure intentions will come back to haunt you in a possibly severe manner.
The intention here is not to scare you, but rather to realize the importance of this realm and the possible risks involved. Much can be learned here and this is a place that is heavily guarded by shamans, mystics, saints and yogis in your world and throughout history, which is why most knowledge of the true nature of the middle realm is downplayed. But as you venture further on the path of ascension into a higher density being you are very likely to find yourself here, sometimes by accident and sometimes guided by your Higher Self. It is best that you be prepared in such an incident. If your vibration and intention is set steadfast in light and you heed the advice you will be fine.”
