Like a radio you are attuned to a station that match your own frequency. In very low realms you may catch a deva, whispering as your mind to guide you into hell. Some training may help to get a stable higher self connection, it acts like a firewall and protect from lower entities. In final stage this will end with a silent mind and graphical higher self connection. Again this is a matter of choice an free will.
