An Astril vision is In Magic, a vivid and controlled type of day-dream in which contact is made with the Astral Plane and the collective unconscious, or Anima Mundi (World Soul). An astral vision has a three-dimensional reality and is not like a mental picture.
The astral vision is created by concentrating on a symbol. As the astral vision unfolds, the magician sees a figure walking, then sees himself as the figure, and then sees through the figure’s eyes and feels sensations through the figure’s form. The figure is then controlled and directed to visit places in the astral plane and to meet with other entities.
