The Thinning of the Veil

Updated: Aug 22, 2022

The air has changed; the sound of the wind that moves through the trees now whispers of the cold winds to come, and the scent carried on the breeze is filled with wildflowers, herbs, and the ripeness of gardens! The ending of summer is a magical time of transition; in which families organize their lives for children to go back to school, and northern folks begin their preparations for winter. Throughout humankind summer's end has been a time of harvest, in which people have gathered with their families and communities to get things done. It is also a time in which we feel the loss of our Beloved Dead deeply, as memories that filter through our minds at this time are filled with the harvests and celebrations we shared with our ancestors. Summer's end is also when the Veil between the worlds noticeably begins to thin, making spirit visitations more common.

The Veil Between the Worlds is a metaphor for the energetic barrier that separates the realm of ordinary reality; in which we live, from the spiritual realms of the dead and nature. It is described as a veil as it is sometimes as thin as gossamer, and others more of a heavy drape. When it is thin it is easier for us to see between the realms and when it is dense our vision is limited. While a skilled Psychic Medium can look behind the veil regardless of the thickness of the veil, most often those with little understanding of the realm of the spirit will have experiences when the veil is thin! Just as those who are skilled will most likely find their lives filled with spirits at this time.

The Veil fluctuates throughout the year, reaching its thinnest points at Samhain (Halloween) on October 31st, and at Beltaine on May 1st. Like a tide that ebbs and flows, the veil begins to thicken again after reaching its thickest points at Imbolc on February 1st and at Lughnassah on August 1st.

I have been living with an awareness of The Veil's tides for the last thirty years, and I have noticed a shift in the intensity and longevity of the thinning over the last decade. The thinning of The Veil use to begin around the Fall and Spring Equinoxes; reaching their thinnest at Samhain and Beltaine, now I can sense the thinning only weeks after the thickest points have been reached, and in truth, the thickest points aren't what they used to be!

I believe this is in part due to the shifting of consciousness we are experiencing as a species, as I firmly believe that humans are going through a psychic evolution; in which we are becoming more psychically sensitive as a whole! Like the tides that shift The Veil throughout the year, there are bigger pendulum swings that transpire throughout time in which we are more or less psychically aware. We just happen to be living in a big upward shift to our consciousness, a time in which we will all most likely experience spirit in some way, shape or form!

One of the most important bits of advice I give to anyone wanting to open their awareness and develop their own relationship with spirit is to take self-doubting dialog out of your vocabulary. Often people talk themselves out of the experiences they have had by adding words like 'maybe, kind-of, and I think so'. So instead of saying 'I think I saw something out of the corner of my eye', try saying 'I saw something out of the corner of my eye!' You will feel it in your body then, and know whether you did or you didn't, and in my experience, it's likely you did!
