First of all, what is an Astral Temple and what is its use? Firstly, the name really is misleading, because its notreally on the astral plane but in your mind. You are your own temple. However,due to the very nature of the Astral Plane, you can create your temple there
once youve created it in your mind.Like anything in the realm of mind or astral, this requires constantmaintenance. So maintain your AstralTemple at least once a month at a minimum.
So what is the purpose of this temple? Well, it can be used for anything you need it for. Whether its for ritual, just a quiet place to
get away to, spells, talking with other entities in a safe location (such asspirits). Whatever you desire to useyour temple for is up to you.
Creating your temple
Start by drawing out a rough idea or writing out a general list of attributes youd like your temple to have. Does it have walls or is it
a labyrinth? Do you want it to be a sacred meadow surrounded by high stonewalls or a small cottage? These are all things you need to consider. Next, think about the materials that you would need. Do you want it made from stone, brick and mortar, a thatch style, the elements, etc? Now think of a key style you want to use. This is not to be told to anyone, otherwise you will have to rethink it and remake your lock foryour temple.
This is the fun part.
Visualize all of this. Start by visualizing your area. Whether its in a meadow, in a bog, whatever. Startbuilding your temple brick by brick. You want to make sure your foundation isout first so that you can build upon it, this is no different than your time inyour path. You need to lay your foundation and build upon it. The next thing you need to do once your entire temple is built up, is go through it. Walk through the door of your temple, and makeadjustments as you go.
You can now create your altar, add carpeting to thefloor (if you have one), whatever it is you desire. Remember that you can come back to this place just by thinking about it. It will change as you change and as you want it tochange. You can invite your friends, orcreate thought forms here. It really isa free for all on your part.
A few things to remember: Meditation is key for concentration so your temple is not a ghetto, unless that is how you designed it to be. Its important to keep it clean and free of clutter. Be focuses onwhat you want, and creativity is important because your temple IS YOU.
A Clean Aura is a good idea, as well as cleansed and balanced chakras, but you can also do that in your temple. ( I personally have
a special place in mine for healing and cleansing, this is a personal optionthat you can choose.)
