This form of psychic trance and psychic meditation has persisted to the present day. According to these false teachings, the neophyte is taught to leave the body not through the fire center (the heart chakra) and the fire body (the etheric envelope) but through the water center (the solar plexus) and the water body (the astral or emotional body). This results in soul travel in the astral plane. Once caught on the astral plane, souls are taken to the abodes of the members of the false hierarchy, their astral forcefields. Those who are thus led by the embodied and disembodied representatives of the false hierarchy are beguiled by the endless euphoria of the plane of psychic phenomena.
