Your astral body plays a key role in creating new developments which have not yet manifested in your physical life. The astral is like a giant lab in which you experiment with your life and your creations.
The astral can also offer greater insight, as it allows you to come at things from a different angle. Astral dream experiences allow you to see things from a different perspective than your normal awareness. As a result, astral dreams can be especially useful for working on situations that - for one reason or another - may be difficult to face directly in daily life.
