As I’ll discuss later, my views on the cosmological layout of the universe are a working model rather than something that I set firmly in stone. So when I say “it is this way” it should be interpreted as “I have found this to be a useful model for what I have seen/experienced.”
I work predominantly a 9-world cosmological model arranged in the spiral pattern that Kaldera uses in his Pathwalker’s Guide to the Nine World.
I have seen attempts to map these to the three-worlds system employed but a lot of shamans and shamanic practitioners, but have not found a clean 9-3 mapping that I like for that.
Connecting all realms is what we term the astral plane. There may be other astral planes, but there is one that I frequently know that I work with.
The worlds are:
There are also other realms that are connected to these or to the astral plane which I visit regularly, such as the Fay Lands.
