Some of them are quite advanced, but the majority are not anywhere near the yoga adept stage. Generally, communication with guides through a medium, unless this medium has had several lives of strict discipline, is very poor. You may get something like 75 percent of the medium and 25 percent of the guide. There have been rare cases when the ratio is 98 percent guide and 2 percent medium. A very evolved guide could not use a medium unless they were themselves very evolved. If a very evolved guide was to try to get his thought impulses through the average brain, such a guide would do physical damage to the medium.
In order for any medium to bring a guide through who is a master, that medium would at least have to be an adept. The help of a guide comes not only while people are living in this life, but also when they go to other realms. The guide can help them through this waiting period. A guide can also introduce any person he wants to help to the schools of learning, which do exist on these realms.
Some passage between one realm and another also takes place. The selfish person, for instance, may change, when he gets to the spirit world. It is not likely, but it can happen. Instead of remaining one of the selfish masses, he might want to really dedicate his life to helping people.
If this happened, he would make a tremendous stride forward, because motive manifests more quickly on these realms than it does upon Earth. Not all the realms are pleasant. You get several layers of involution on these lower regions. There are the really low regions where the worst would go to. If you are advanced, you will have had a special initiation in which you have been taken down to the lower realms and have had a vile job to perform, which will be of tremendous value to inhabitants there.
You can do far better work, such as healing and teaching, on the lower realms than you can on the higher realms, because the need for it is so much greater on the lower realms. While life after death is not the wonderful heaven that some people paint it, it does consist of realms which are very beautiful, and the higher up the scale you go, the more wonderfully beautiful these realms are.
More importantly, these realms are very useful inasmuch as people have every conceivable opportunity of advancing and preparing themselves for the next life. It is strange that the further up the ladder you go the longer you tend to stay on the other realms.
The mystery of reincarnation
As above, so below. It is very difficult to get to the higher realms and that is an understatement. The longer you stay on these subtle planes, the more you learn while you are there. Like the more basic realms, these higher planes too have halls of learning. On the higher planes, groups work together on different projects. They make certain discoveries which are passed on to the realms beneath them, providing it is safe to do so.
If one or two people who had been adepts on this Earth get together where time does not quite mean what it does on this Earth, without the limitations that there are here, they can come up with some pretty fantastic discoveries. There are four realms lower than this physical plane and six realms higher.

It is vital to remember always that even though there are higher, more evolved and less limiting realms than this one, none are more important. This is the realm to which all reincarnating souls must return again and again, because only here can full mastery over experience take place. All souls from all the realms come together on this plane in order to serve, advance and realize the essential lessons of life. There is no finer way to do this than to radiate spiritual powers to others.
The metaphorical use of colors in this way can be traced back at least to the ancient Indian Yoga Sutras of Sri Patanjali Chapter IV, verse 7 , and possibly even earlier. The Aetherius Society is opposed to racism of all kinds and welcomes spiritual seekers of all backgrounds. If you'd like to participate in this work, please consider becoming a patron.
