maybe, but more commonly you need to work on your clairvoyancey, and psychic abilities. astral projection helps also. i've been told some people can see some astral beings, while others can't. like someone who can see dragons can't see mermaids. or someone who can see demons, can't see spirits. i'm not saying it's a rule, just some people can't see certain beings.
look into psychic tea's and exercises that might help. myself, i find it's much easier to see astral beings while meditating, or just after.
