This funny ol language

OK, here’s a funny lil writing thing. I’m writing about a spiritual area. Is it a plane or a plain?
The grammarist.com says:
Plain and plane are distinct in most of their definitions, but they almost converge where plain refers to a flat, treeless area of land and plane refers to a flat, level surface. But even here, the distinction is simple: A plain is a land formation, while plane is abstract, mainly appearing in mathematics and other specialized fields.
But if I type in spiritual plane, I get lots of hits and it’s a place, but not land.
