In an astral vision a relation or a friend may appear to a person and tell him something about the other side of life. Before another a saint or sage may appear. One may see the vision of one’s friends or relations, past and present. One may see faces never seen before, and yet faces that once existed in the world. When the visions are clear it is the moment when the soul is clear from all earthly shadows, and therefore heavenly pictures, so to speak, appear upon the curtain of man’s heart. Every unseen form that we see in a vision, be it of a spirit, fairy, or angel, or of a teacher, sage, or saint, is according to man’s evolution. As highly evolved a person is, so high is his vision. Sometimes he attracts the object of his vision, sometimes the object of his vision wishes to manifest to him, and sometimes he creates the object of his vision before him.
