What is the Thinning Veil?
Between our world and the spirit world, there is something known as liminal space. The word liminal stems from the Latin “limen,” meaning “threshold.” Liminal space denotes a time and space between the physical world and the spirit world. This is what we call the Veil, and from the end of October through the beginning of November, the days surrounding Halloween and Samhain, (pronounced ‘sow-en’) that veil is at its thinnest, making it the most natural time to connect with Spirit.
Places, People, and Times
Veils are also thinnest in places where ecosystems and elements (Earth, Water, Air, or Fire) meet. This includes sites like waterfalls (Earth and Water) and volcanoes (inner Fire and outer Earth). There are places in the world where the veil is perpetually thin, making it easier to connect with the spirit world year-round. Generally speaking, the larger the space, the thinner the veil can be, but not always. Larger areas where the veil is lifted or even non-existent are known as vortices. Some of these places may sound familiar – Sedona in Arizona, Ayers Rock in Australia, and Stonehenge in England – just to name a few. Also, where ley lines (a grid of the planet’s magnetic fields) cross, it seems to denote places on earth where the veil is thinnest, Stonehenge being one of them.
To the ancient Celts, Samhain signified the last harvest and the beginning of a New Year. It is the space in time between summer and winter, the time of the harvest. Although we celebrate both Halloween and Samhain in the days between October and November, you may start to feel the veil thinning as early as September. After all, September is Virgo season, the sign of the Harvest Maiden.
Opportunities to Experience the Thinning Veil
Whether you have a professional psychic reading done with a Deceased Loved Ones Psychic or choose to explore your own psychic abilities, this is the optimum time to connect with spirit, to speak to your ancestors, and those that have crossed over.
There are not only places but spaces in time where your own personal veil is lifted, allowing you to connect with the spirit world. For instance, when you’re alone or having a quiet moment, when you’re in your own element (near Fire, Water, etc.), and for some, while running, swimming, or even in the moments between awake and asleep or vice versa. The time of day can also help you feel a lifted veil – dawn and/or dusk – the lineal space between night and day. There are times during the year when you celebrate your spiritual connections as well – Halloween, of course, but also Easter, Passover, and days that mark spiritual significance like Patriot Day (the anniversary of 9/11). At all of these moments, your intuition can be heightened, and your connections will come easier.
Psychic Abilities and the Thinning Veil
If you do plan on exploring your psychic abilities, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that often people who are “open” or psychic are not aware of their abilities. This can result in a drain of energy and the inability to know their boundaries. I would suggest that if you choose this path, that you take the time to learn how to ground yourself as well as protect yourself, as not all veils and vortices are energetically pure.
Also, as this world evolves, so too do its inhabitants. The overall veil over our existence at this time is lifting as more people are born with sensitivities and connections to the other side. The more the world is filled with sensitive, gifted people, the more they use those gifts to create a better world for us all, and the closer to Spirit we will be.
