The Shamanic Astrology Paradigm™ is not predictive!

By Daniel Giamario

“It’s Tough to Make Predictions, Especially about the Future” – Yogi Berra, baseball playing philosopher

“Prediction is Very Difficult, Especially about the Future” – Niels Bohr, Danish Physicist

The assumption is often made that astrology is a predictive science.  Many still cling to that notion. But it had seemed in the late 1960’s, and early 1970’s, that the era of predictive astrology was over. In these times now, within the time-frame of a great Turning of the Ages, prediction is a dubious and often perilous enterprise. 

It often seems that simply making a prediction, and placing attention on something, be-it positive, or negative, could even be seen as a strategy to insure that it does not happen!  This may well be related to a principle of quantum mechanics, where the consciousness of the observer connects mysteriously to the outcome. The Shamanic Astrology Mystery School™   has never been about prediction. Let me explain.  

I first became aware of astrology through the books of Dane Rudhyar (1969 through 1973), and was part of a movement that, at that time, was known as Humanistic Astrology. Later, Rudhyar changed the name of his approach to “Transpersonal Astrology”.  I had the great fortune of having Dane and his wife Leyla Rael as early mentors.  It was the era of an astrological renaissance, with many, many young people taking a keen interest in astrology. This was actually a part of the overall cultural revolution that gripped the world in the late 1960s.  

Interestingly, the excitement and interest that astrology held for us had little connection with a predictive or deterministic kind of astrology. Rudhyar, and the others who inspired us in those days (including Zipporah Dobyns, Stephen Arroyo, Tony Joseph, Richard Idemon, and many others) favored an approach blending mythology, psychology, and spirituality. Before I even began using the expression “Shamanic Astrology” (starting in the early 1990s), I had always steered clear of predictive astrology.  

Highly influenced by Rudhyar, I have always felt that astrology is about “intent” (see note below) with the capacity of the astrologer and the client to tune into, as best they can, the intent and purpose of a natal chart or any astrological timing. The chart, or any particular timing, is a set of potentials, likened also to a set of instructions, that can either be carried out, or not. 

As Jung so beautifully stated: “Free will is doing  gladly, and freely, that which one must do.”  It’s the responsibility of the astrologer to illumine the highest set of possibilities and the full potential of the client.  This will then assist in discerning the purpose and meaning of their lives, the higher purpose of a person, not the egoic desires of the client (or the needs of the astrologer to be right). 

By focusing on intent, it stands the predictive approach on its head.  Instead of looking for a fixed future outcome, by tuning into intent it’s easier to align with lines of probability that most likely will produce the intended outcome.  I suggest that we look at the extraordinary global configurations and my recent explorations of the US chart from that perspective.

Two other experiences have galvanized my non-predictive approach.  The first was my involvement with the Ridhwan School, also known as the Diamond Heart Approach.  The One Reality that we are all part of is in motion and it evolves according to certain natural laws. 

An expression of this is known as “The Holy Plan.” People who love astrology generally love getting close with this holy plan, and then end up believing that they have it all figured out. But the “problem” is that the astrologer is part of the evolving One Reality, and can never be separate and objective to it. Therefore it’s not really possible to know for certain what the holy plan is intending. That’s why it’s also known as Great Mystery

In concert with these insights, I have also been quite impressed by the work of English astrologer Geoffrey Cornelius, the author of The Moment of Astrology. One point he makes is that there is no such thing as “objective time.”  Without the existence of objective time, prediction as normally understood is simply not possible.  Astrology is actually just an infinite number of divinations. And as many of us are experiencing, there are seemingly an infinite number of possible timelines, even if not really infinite, then certainly a rapidly expanding number of lines of probability. 

These two sets of insights remove prediction, as it has been known, entirely off the table. There is no way of knowing completely, ahead of time, what is going to happen.  Each birth chart, or each specific astrological timing, when seen as a divination, in and of itself, can be seen to have an intention, with its own meaning and purpose, which the astrologer can then form a relationship with, in concert with the client. From this, an awareness can develop concerning the intent, meaning, and purpose of the chart, or any specific timing or cycle.

Shamanic Astrology is completely in harmony with this view.  As astrologers, and as lovers of astrology, of course, we love our closeness to the holy plan. We would not be in this field if we did not feel the intimacy derived from this closeness.  However, the greater this closeness and this intimacy, the greater a humbleness and humility will grow, because it’s not possible to really know what Great Mystery has in mind. We can only get close. And that is a thrill indeed. 

Much has changed since that halcyon late 1960s and early 1970s. Much to my shock and disappointment, a good deal of mainstream astrology has regressed in my view.  So much astrology has gone back into Medieval, Hellenistic, and often deterministic Vedic systems, not to speak of “Sun Sign Astrology”. Dane Rudhyar would be rolling over in his grave! 

Many of the gains from the astrological renaissance of the 1960s and 1970s have been seemingly lost, stranded on the shores of determinism and prediction.  I suspect it’s time for another Renaissance. Certainly there are other astrologers who are part of this Re-Renaissance. To name a few, there are: Mark Jones, Gemini Brett, Dale O’Brien and Eric Francis.  The Shamanic Astrology Mystery School will always stand firmly on its Rudhyarian, humanistic, divinatory and non-predictive foundation.

Note: Regarding the word “intent”. It stems from Old French and Late Latin: Intentus; meaning a “stretching out” and a “leaning toward”. It is actional, and includes concepts like goal, an end, aim and purpose.

An Investigation Of The Astrological Chart Of The United States: 2021-2025

Part 3 of 4 by Daniel Giamario

THE NEPTUNE AND GEMINI FACTORS

Introduction and an embarrassing admission

I have been working extensively on the chart of the United States for maybe six months now, in monthly “ramblings” newsletter posts, a number of FaceBook posts, as well as seminars and vlogcasts.  I have covered the quadruple eclipse pathways, the Chiron return, the Pluto return, as well as important Jupiter, Saturn and Lunar Node transits.  I have even been mentioning the US natal Neptune square to Mars.  But through email exchanges with Greg Knell, who has become a marvelous researcher in related areas of inquiry, out of nowhere, I realized that I had totally not seen that the United States is in its Neptune opposition!  I just had not noticed!  Very humbling indeed!  This part three will hopefully remedy this situation.  I will weave this currently happening second Neptune opposition to the natal US Neptune into the larger scenario that I have been developing.  And I think you will agree that it’s as important as any of the other factors so far presented.

The Neptune Factor

I believe that the natal square of Neptune to the US Mars is one of the most important elements of the US chart.  Neptune is 22Virgo25 in the 10th house, and Mars is 21Gemini22 in the 7th.  Using the windows of initiation that we use with the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm ™ applied to a natal chart, here is a complete accounting of cycles of 2021-2022 related to this US natal square.  The window of initiation lasts from March 3, 2021—December 4, 2022.

Rethinking the Increasing Polarization Between Men and Women Within Identity Politics

By Daniel Giamario

Since the early 1970’s, I have been an advocate for the Feminine and a major supporter of the efforts to expose the debacle of patriarchy.  The women’s movement of the early 1970’s, the introduction of the asteroid goddesses, and the re-mythologizing of astrology, all inspired my criticism of sun sign astrology, as being a monotheistic relic of patriarchy ,and  a semi-brainwash.  Instead, I have always felt the soul to be polytheistic, and that the Feminine is “First Principle”.  This subject is explored in my second book, Origins of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm.  Furthermore, the 7th and 8th principle of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm elucidates this also: https://shamanicastrology.com/about

Also, throughout the years I have always emphasized that the archetypal feminine is not the same as women, and that the archetypal masculine does not mean men.  These principles are foundational to the full spectrum of all the gender possibilities available to men and women, and essential to engage with the inner sacred marriage process as taught by the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School™.  The aim has always been to take us beyond the simplistic and limiting views, such as “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, which merely perpetuate cultural stereotypes.

At this point in the culture, most open-minded cultural creatives, and a growing number of mainstream folk, can readily perceive that patriarchy has been a seriously bad wrong turn for global humanity.  However, over the last four to five years particularly, what seems to be happening is increased polarization.  There is increased polarization in pretty much all areas of our lives, but especially between men and women.  

I have recently realized that I have been unwittingly supporting this polarization.  I have continuously been supportive of many “Goddess” oriented groups and forums.  Terms like “Divine Feminine”, “Sacred Feminine”, are extensively used.  For eight years, I have co-created a workshop/ adventure called Renaissance of the Sacred Feminine!  For example, often when looking at the Venus synodic cycle, the emphasis is often primarily at the Venus position for women.  This is despite the fact that the Venus cycle is equally about a man’s archetypally feminine side.  Men have not felt particularly welcome in this, mostly, company of women.  Meanwhile, it’s not hard to notice that it’s almost all women that attend the gatherings that Anyaa and I have co-created in Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. And it’s certainly true that the majority of students in the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School™ are women, which is equally true in my client base.  I certainly have no problem with groups designed to be for just women (or just men for that matter), but it’s not the aim of Shamanic Astrology to separate like this.  I also hope that more women will become interested in the Mars synodic cycle, and its implication for women.  I also fervently hope that the emphasis can more easily be directed at the “inner sacred marriage process”, which is the main theme of our third foundational on-line course, and that more men will feel welcome.

Another phenomenon that has happened five or six times over the last few years has really impacted me.  Dear friends and clients of mine, both men and women, have been greatly damaged through fake bots, lawsuits, and web postings that seem to stem from the excesses and fanaticism on the fringe of the “Me Too Movement”.  These victimized individuals are all good people, who have served the awakening of global humanity and who have been caught in a backlash.  

The problem is obviously the increasing polarization between men and women.  When considering questions of sex and gender: First and foremost, men and women are human beings.  We are all in this together.  And I now refuse to contribute to any further polarization.  For further information on this most important subject, please see my recent vlogcast on sex and gender here: https://youtu.be/06RSynd6rOE

Whilst there are archetypal differences between the masculine and the feminine, it’s not about men and women.  I find so many women who are consciously or unconsciously supportive and complicit in the support of the patriarchy.  And there are strident and extreme “Me-Two” supporters who actually have stated that eliminating 90% of the male population would solve the problems that the Earth faces.  I suggest that they do more shadow work, and see their own inner patriarch.  In addition to this, it’s quite obvious to see that many prominent women leaders, in politics and corporations, are totally subservient to the patriarchy, and actively benefit from supporting it.  I could name names.  And there are many good men, who are open-hearted and awake, and quite supportive of the great project of co-creating a post-patriarchal world.

I take full responsibility for whatever I have done to increase the polarizations.  So here is one thing that we have decided to do.  Anyaa and I have decided to rename our program: Renaissance of the Sacred.  Full stop.  Interestingly, our vision statement still remains the same. But now hopefully, it will not contribute to any further polarization, or be subtly suggesting the superiority of women over men.  As I must always remind us, it’s not about men or women, but rather the “inversion” created by aberrant patriarchy and patrialinealism that has caused so much damage, and has been consciously or unconsciously been supported by both men and women.  We don’t need patriarchy, or matriarchy moving forward.  At this time, with great regret, these international adventures have been suspended until travel is an easier experience.

Furthermore, I commit to guide the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School™ on this foundation, with a much more equal balance between the Masculine and the Feminine, and with less use of “Goddess”, “Divine Feminine”, or “Sacred Feminine”.  The far greater story of our type of human, going back 300,000 years, was almost always gylanic, egalitarian, cooperative, and with an equal ranking between women and men.  This is, of course, disputed by the mainstream/establishment, promoting that “civilization” only started about 5500 years ago.  This is such a limited and stifling view, creating a mono-view that drives inquiry into conformity and cognitive dissonance.  As Gandhi once remarked when asked about “Western civilization”, he remarked: “that would be a good idea”.  Certainly this is a symptom of being at the bottom of the Kali Yuga.

Ramblings, Reflections and Ruminations – New Moon February 2021

The Three Worlds Approach: The Fifth Crown Jewel by Daniel Giamario, Founder

Over the last few years I have often referenced what I call the Three Worlds Approach.  This has been particularly noticeable if you have been following my FaceBook posts, vlogcasts and seminars. I desire here to explore what this is more deeply in this article.  

Previously in teachings, Cayelin and I have referred to the FOUR crown jewels of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm™, namely:
1) 144 storylines of lineage and life purpose
2) The Shamanic Timeline of Initiatory processes
3) A unique approach to the synodic cycles of Mercury, Venus and Mars
4) The Inner Sacred Marriage Process

I now think the Three Worlds Approach qualifies as the FIFTH.  

In developing the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm™, I borrowed from “Shamanism 101”, the nearly universal motif found in animistic and shamanically oriented cultures, of three worlds: namely the Upper World (or Celestial World), the Middle World, and the Lower World (or Underworld).

In the initiatory approach used by the Shamanic Astrology approach, I noticed over now 51 years of my practice that outer planet symbolic meanings, and their cycles, correspond with these three worlds:

Uranus and Neptune correspond with the Upper World
Saturn, Jupiter and the Lunar Nodes correspond with the Middle World
Pluto and Chiron (and likely Eris) correspond to the Lower or Underworld.

The deeper understanding of the synodic cycles of Mercury, Venus and Mars reveal that all three worlds can be found when looking at the entire synod of each. Those expressions are not part of this current exploration, but can be found in our Synodic cycle online course. Let’s now look at these three worlds.

Upper World (Celestial) featuring Uranus and Neptune

Originally, in ancient animism and shamanism, this was the sky realm, above and free of the Earth. This would include the starry firmament, including the movements of the Moon and planets.  In more modern times, including archetypal psychology and astrology, a number of different kinds of altered consciousness states, or non-ordinary reality can be seen as part of this celestial realm. In Shamanic Astrology, Uranus and Neptune symbolize two different kinds of upper world access and experience.

Neptune: The Self is empty. The material world has no substantial basis. All is transitory, rising and falling in and out of manifest existence.  Clarity and certainty are impediments. Seemingly infinite lines of probability arise. Narrowing any down and defining becomes impossible. 

The trick is to not mind this and relax around it; confusion and “not knowing” is to be embraced. All possibilities are allowed for, and there is nothing to prove or to accomplish. This is very much an ultimate Buddhist perception. It also corresponds to philosophical “idealism”.  At its best it’s the great truth that “all is well”, and “the universe is unfolding as it should”.  At its worst, it is spiritual bypass and light polarization. Like all expressions of the Upper World, they exist outside our ordinary experiences of linear time.

Uranus: Unpredictable, unknowable and unexpected events happen that we are usually at the effect of.  Generally always these are beyond our control. It’s always freedom from the “known”. The best approach is to roll with the punches, trust that you are going in the direction your soul intended to go, and be not attached. Be at the front of the wave. 

At its best it’s like “being hit by lightning in a good way”.  Change is good, and is not a referendum on some kind of deficiency or failure. Synchronicity abounds and expects that we pay attention. In Shamanism, this indicates an “assemblage point” shift.  The ultimate purpose of Uranian initiations is to propel us to “other worlds” (not the underworld). At its best, it is extreme novelty and high adventure. At its worst it’s a massive unwelcome disrupter of our well-laid plans. Like Neptune, Uranian experience lies outside of ordinary linear time.

Middle World: Jupiter, Saturn and the Lunar Nodes
This realm of experience is our ordinary, material 3D experience, apparently linear, logical, and rational, and generally experienced that way. It is the realm of philosophical “materialism”. It has been variously called the “real world” and objective reality. We develop a functioning personal identity, ego and persona to be able to function here. This is not a shabby achievement! Three planetary processes describe this middle world.

Jupiter: Phases of life that provide optimism and enthusiasm towards our life purpose. Experiences that value and validate our genuine gifts, and greatest joys about being alive. Often it’s a time and a means of expanding our lives to a higher octave.  It generally will describe and inspire our connection to our life’s dharma and true genius. At its best it’s a great high point in the story of our lives.  The down side can be too much expansion, and at its worst megalomania and narcissism.

Saturn: This is an organic 3D symbol of how to grow, change and evolve via limitations and boundaries. This need not be thought of as negative or depressing, though it can sometimes feel that way. It’s best to think of it as a process of maturation, or like a snake shedding its skin, a totally natural process.

Often it’s an indicator of stages of life and of time, often quite literal.  It’s really the key to NOT view it as a judge or critic, but as a reality check, saying “get real”. It’s one of our best guides as to how to survive and thrive here in 3D “reality”. From a spiritual perspective, this is our greatest teacher for escaping the wheel of Karma, otherwise known as the “matrix”.  But that will require seeing through the hoax of Saturn, or no longer believing its judgments, and inducing feelings of shame, guilt, the brainwash of “original sin”, and alleged deficiencies. 

This has been the “Saturn” of more recent times, the “superego” of Freud. At its best, Saturn is a great guide for accurate assessment of the reality of our life experience. At its worst it traps us in a mechanistic and deterministic machine-like wheel of Karma, unfortunately, these days having morphed into a Christianized version of karma, based more on guilt and reward and punishment, now far removed from the original views from India.

Lunar Nodes: The meaning of the nodal axis and its cycles is really paramount in one of the other “crown jewels” of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm™, the 144 storylines of lineage and current life intent. As a symbol and initiatory middle world process, it, like Jupiter and Saturn, indicates time-frames and storylines of current life purpose. 

The Nodal Return has a more Jupiterian flavor of re-aligning with original intent and entering a field of all possibilities. The Nodal Reversal is more Saturnian, with a greater necessity to change course if one discovers that they are no longer aligned with their original intent. Unlike Jupiter and Saturn, these Nodal initiations are more visionary, and often less actional. It’s a time to trust the transmissions, dreams, and intuitions that are coming into awareness. It’s like the “future self” reaching back to get our attention.

Lower World (Underworld) Pluto and Chiron (possibly Eris)
Originally, in animistic and shamanic culture, this was the “underworld”, meaning under the ocean, under the Earth, and especially the caves and the chthonic realms. In more recent times, within archetypal psychology and astrology, this domain of experience includes the deep unconscious, the “shadow” from the Jungian perspective, and the “Id”, from a Freudian perspective. It is the realm where the ego and the normal level of awareness are not in control.

With this feature, it resembles Uranus. Like the Upper world initiatory process, the underworld initiations are outside of linear time and our usual objective reality.  But their intent is quite different, as we shall see.

Pluto:  Although the Underworld process of initiation was well known to the ancients, the discovery of Pluto in 1930 brought a potent astrological symbol of this world to the modern age. Like Uranus, this kind of experience happens beyond our control. It is also typified by irrational and chaotic events, externally or internally. 

The intent is to introduce the conditions for surrender. There is no technique for surrender, otherwise it’s not surrender.  Challenges arise, and the three main ways of handling them are useless. You cannot use strength or will to power through; you cannot use your mind to figure it out and solve the challenge; and you cannot pretend it doesn’t matter. Spiritual bypass or other forms of denial are useless. 

These kinds of initiatory experiences are not logical and are not to be taken personally, though its likely to bring up deep feelings and unknown and uncontrollable emotional experiences. Unlike the Middle World that exists ostensibly in a linear and logical place, the Lower World is off the world stage, and, like the Upper World, outside of time. Although this kind of experience is utterly natural, the current modern age seldom teaches us about it. 

There are time periods when composting is necessary, and surrender can be near the final stage just before freedom and self-realization. At its most intense, this Pluto can symbolize a “dark night of the Soul”, an utter annihilation of self and any material ground. However the goal is transformation. Out of composting comes new life. A phoenix rises from the ashes. 

Also what arises is an organic connection to life force rising from the underworld and the revitalization of our energies and passion rising from the core and from the contents of our unconscious that had not been brought to light. Pluto also has an etymological connection to “wealth”. This does not mean money per se, but strength and aliveness.

Chiron: Also well known to the ancients through the constellation Centaurus, knowledge of this initiatory process only came back into modern astrology with the discovery of Chiron in 1977, the first of a new category of planetary bodies, called Centaurs. 

Within this paradigm, Chiron is a teacher who assists in the digestion of our “wounding”, mostly the usual human issues that we all have one or more of, such as: Separation from unity, violation, betrayal, abandonment, lack of self love and others. In some cases he is especially helpful should you have a unique and very specific wounding. 

Importantly, it’s not allopathic healing, but rather a compassionate integration of these “sacred fractures” into our wholeness.  This digestion of our experiences then can easily be part of our medicine for helping and healing others, but first with our-selves.

Chiron is an in-between symbol: in-between Saturn and Uranus, part immortal and part human, and part human and part animal. The mysteries of life and death are part of this medicine, both completely honoring our humanness and vulnerability, as well as our eternal divinity. Chiron is allocated to the Lower World of initiation and experience also due to the irrationality of his actions, and the inducement to surrender, without taking it personally. Like Pluto, there is great emphasis on the feeling function, with a requirement to feel everything that you feel without judgment or bypass.

The Three Worlds Approach

With this understanding of the three worlds, what then is the approach? It is nothing less than to somehow hold all three worlds in awareness at the same time. This can be such a powerful way to make sense of the current times; without which the historical and astrological events now happening, circa 2020-2021, that have not been seen for 12,900 years at least, are understandingly overwhelming. 

This is no easy task, as few persons are balanced in all three, or even aware of these three worlds, that were intimately known to the ancients. And even if known, human beings tend to have their preferences, either from their culture or from the archetypal uniqueness in their own charts.

All three worlds are real and true, within their world. But only there is it completely true.  For example: In the Upper World, the “all is well and the Universe is unfolding as it should” view is a reality. The Buddhist “self is empty” view is accurate, relative to the celestial. But not at all helpful if this results in fear or failure to look at the Middle World or Underworld.  This is how spiritual bypass happens with an aversion to anything less than idealistic, hopeful or love and light. Too much of this actually causes an increase in the underworld’s energy, as well as rendering that individual incapable of facing Middle World realities.

Only emphasizing the Middle World consigns a person to the presumed reality of linear logic, rationality, materialism, and often the “myth of progress”. Or the opposite: the End Times, the end of Kali Yuga, the end of the 26,000 year cycle etc. This ignores the miracles and the novel events outside of time from the Upper World. 

It also can ignore the irrational presence of Chaos, the need for surrender, and the inevitability of annihilation and death. But then it’s within this world that our 3D life unfolds within structures and laws, none that are eternal, without change. With a lot of Saturn, we can perceive the innumerable examples of end game scenarios. All have a measure of objective truth. A great amount of Jupiter provides an extremely optimistic view of all the practical ways to save the planet. All of these have a measure of objective reality also. The objective reality of global humanity in 3D is as important as the Celestial, as this is, after all, our school…otherwise we would have remained angels.

It is less common to overemphasize the Underworld. But as global humanity itself is undergoing its own “Dark Night” it is extremely important to give this equal standing to the other two. The sudden ending of ourselves, and in fact, the entire galaxy could wink out at any instant. And few can argue that so much about the current world does indeed deserve composting (and renewal). 

The Underworld dimension has very little to do with what humans are or do. It’s all natural forces way beyond our power to control or have dominion over. The underworld is an ultimate antidote to hubris, that is, the over-weaning pride of humans believing they are god. 

My view is that Great Mystery, through the agency of our Primal Earth Mother, is ultimately the force and intelligence that is directing the show. There are many who have become victims of what has been called the “new age highjack”, who believe that this approach is just too negative and just instills fear. To be conscious and aware of “worst case scenarios” does not cause them, or magnetize them. In fact it’s a courageous test of awareness. And can eliminate the scourge of denial. It is reminiscent of the Buddhist view that any day that goes by without you contemplating your own death is a wasted life.

So our goal is to hold all three at once. There is one additional complication that may arise. Seldom is any individual in all three kinds of cycles at the same time. And as I mentioned, you can have your personal preferences. These can be exacerbated if your personal cycles are dominant in one or two of these three worlds, but not all three. Great awareness, courage and focus, is required. The greatest gift of all from working with this approach is developing a neutral center point, a place of peace and equanimity, without judgment that can begin to see all of these worlds together. This is a great use of Aquarius!

I hope this has been of assistance in the challenges of navigating these times. Now you can understand why I am considering this teaching as the FIFTH Crown Jewel of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm ™.  You shall certainly hear more of this in the coming years, with the bottoming out of the Kali Yuga being eminent, and the Pluto Return and the Fourth Turning of the United States, just in front of us. Find your purpose and be grateful to be alive at such a momentous and extra-ordinary time.

Note: These three words are what are experienced, within the context of a human lifetime with a physical body. All are experienced within the stages and seasons of the Shamanic Timeline, and with planetary transits. All are natural and will be experienced on multiple occasions. Thus, these are not to be confused with the Netherworld (land of the dead), the Bardo Planes between lives, or the “Otherworld” of Celtic mythology. These are also not heaven or hell realms that may be encountered when we have no body.
