Hello and blessings to all, I am curious if anyone is familiar with any magic that would allow me to work with the astral plane in the following ways: To directly alter the physical plane as well as to, adjust the status effects of beings and the area, if anyone has any ideas I am happy to hear them, please no hate and please don't tell me that certain magic doesn't work or exist, all I'm looking for is help :)

Im not quite sure how you want "to alter the physical plane from the astral plane". Could you be more specific?
Also, if you want to do some magic that doesn't exist, and someone says "Hey man, that's not real" they aren't giving you "hate" that is them helping you by letting you know that you should focus your energy elsewhere

There are a number of things you could try. While "directly" altering the physical world is not often how we tend to imagine it there are ways to "effect" the physical world and those who dwell in it.
When in an astral location overlapping with a physical one, or when you have astral access to someone's astral energy you can alter the energies there. While not "direct" like moving objects as a "ghost" it is effective if you prefer a more supple approach. By altering the energy of something you can cause more drawn out effects. Psychic Vampirism is quite possible if you choose to practice this. You can't directly "kill" someone by attacking them in the astral plane but if they are unprotected magically then you could poison their energies and make them potentially rather ill.

Okay and thank all of you, one of the ways I'm hoping to affect the physical plane is kind of strange, now I know this is going to sound all game like, however, it's one way of looking at things, is via status effects, and also causing certain things to occur after certain conditions are met, like for example, something I would like to do is cast a protective network around my home and only allow my loved ones to be able to find my home, kind of like the effects of the fidelius charm in Harry Potter, as well as password based magic, like I would need to either speak, think or do something and it would activate what would be astrally password protected, does this make sense to what I'm trying to describe?
I very much understand what it is you wish to accomplish. But it is not likely to happen -- at least not in that way.
There are workings, which already do not require usage of the astral, which are meant to not draw attention to a person or to a place. You could look into those.
You could also use mundane methods, such as not doing anything remarkable to the property. A house without architectural uniqueness is not likely to be noticed, especially if the neighbors have interesting features on their houses. Bright flowers in carefully sculpted landscaping will also draw the eye. Plain grass will do less to attract attention.
That said, I assume you want this for the sake of security. Security through obscurity is false, and easily defeated.

Well, I would also like this for the sake of time, because I know I am skilled in many areas of magic, and I know that I communicate with other magical beings as well, and I would like to find a way of supernaturally locking some of the doorways and portals in my house and unlocking others so I can go through each day or every so often and store energy in pockets through my home so in times of need like healing for example, I could perform the "key sequence" to unlock to pockets of healing that I had built up and that way it would boost the healing work I want at the time, same thing goes for other types of magic as well. Does that make sense?
I think with parts of this, you may be overthinking it. While you might decide to make doors and locks within your own astral space, it does not mean it translates as such in the physical realm, or to the perceptions of others. Investing that sort of energy, some may warn, might attract some astral entities in stead of blocking or repelling them. But that is only a belief, and your own experience may vary significantly.
As for storage spaces for energy, there are those who do similar, but in a much simpler way: They use items which have some significance to them or to their practices, such as crystals, boxes, knickknacks, and the like, and focus energy into these items for later use. However, there is a much simpler option at your disposal: Not using your own energy.
The earth is an enormous repository from which one can draw, and into which one can deposit excess energies. It helps practitioners from being drained, connects them to a greater source, and helps them ground after building up for a working.
Some people choose to draw from the universe, or from specific celestial bodies, such as solar or lunar; or energy (the archetype thereof) of specific planets, for those who follow certain systems' astrologies.
You resources to draw metaphysical energy are myriad.
From your posts, I read it as you're trying to approach this like a roleplay game, in the sense of status effects, traps, barriers, locks and riddles, and the like. You might have success in such workings, once you get to know some things in your own personal practice. But it is not a way I have heard people describe things. Also note that a lot of descriptions of shared experiences with like entities and types of entities is that they are nothing like we expect, and to put it most lightly, our priorities are very different from theirs. Just be careful.
