Yes the clothes are a projection of mind but real like the spiritual body, because they are made of the same spiritual matter as the spiritual body, & you can change your outfit at any chosen moment.
It is amazing though eh...that without any thought about clothing immediately on arrival in spiritual form at death that we are wearing the same clothes as before death of the physical body.....compliments of the memories in our soul/consciousness.
BUT the quality & appearance of the spiritual clothes & spiritual body are a reflection of the quality within our soul.
If we have been creating ugliness in our lives especially in the spiritual realms, ugly worn out clothes & spiritual body appearances we shall have.
Create beauty, then beautiful clothes & spiritual body appearances we shall have.
Law of the universe. ...we are naturally an emanation of the quality & beauty or ugliness of our soul, our soul naturally draws on the spiritual matter of the universe to create the spiritual body without any input from us whatsoever, creating a real & tangible object (spiritual body)...& spiritual people with beautifully enhanced souls will not want to change their appearance of their spiritual bodies....
...where as spiritual beings with ugliness within their souls will often want to change their appearances, for their own Ill gotten gain....but are limited to what they can change their appearances into. They cannot create beauty from a depleted soul.
