When And Where Is The Veil Thinnest?
The Best Times And Locations to Connect with Spirit

When is the veil thinnest? What time is the veil the thinnest? What places in the world can we go where the veil is thin? In this post we discuss -
A thin place is one where it is thought that the separation between the physical world and the physical world is less dense.
There are thought to be thin places at spiritual sites and vortices, however, in the event, you can’t make it to one of these locations, there are also times of the day, people, and periods of life where the veil between our worlds is easier to sense.
When, where and with whom the veil is thin, it is thought to be temporarily easier to see and interact with the Spirit World.
This includes Ancestors, Fairies, Angels, God-Source, and so on.
There are three different types of ways to experience a thin veil:
You can have a thin veil
There are periods in the day when the veil is most thin
There are locations with specifically thin veils
Some of us are thought to be naturally more sensitive to the unseen world. This is what is colloquially referred to as having thin skin.
But in my post, Born With A Veil: Are You A Natural Born Psychic? I talk about this and how we all have moments where our personal boundaries drop, and in these, we can have private moments of experience where the veil is thinnest for us.
These moments are also known as pivotal events, change points, or before and after moments.
Personal veils can drop and this can be precipitated by a near-death experience, the birth of a child, or some other wrinkle in time.
In the brief moment of change, we experience a thin veil, and some of us do feel that charge in the air - that’s what it feels like to be somewhere where the veil is thin.
When you encounter a thin spiritual zone, there can also be other side effects as your body adapts to what is going on, too - sleep may be more frequently interrupted as it’s buzzier around you, for example.
Jess Carlson talks about this more in her post, Signs You’re Feeling The Thinning Veil and How To Stay Sane. The signs of a thinning veil are similar to spiritual awakening signs or other types of ascension signs.
Not everyone experiences a thin veil negatively, though it’s important to be aware of them if you are, and below I talk more about what to expect when you sense one.
Getting to a personal thin veil moment can be achieved slowly through meditation and practice, too. By simply finding moments and periods when your Spirit is free and released from physical ties, you can also create a thinner space around yourself.
Personal times of the day when the veil is thin
We can all have these instances when our own veils thin, and there are also personal times of day where we are most receptive to the non-physical.
When is the time of the day where your Spirit is most relaxed?
Is it in the bath, while you sleep or in the early morning when you prepare lunches for your children?
When is it, that your mind is most quiet?
This is the time when your veil is thinnest, and those in spirit may unite with you easiest.
Your personal thin veil time can be:
When you’re near or connected to your natural element. Pay attention to your element, when you are near your element (for example, I'm a water element), it's generally easier for one sense the unseen there.
During certain transitional moments in your life when you are more aware, such as during pivotal change periods.
When you’re alone and free of distraction.
Collective times of day when the veil is thought to be thin
In addition to us each having our own private time when it’s easier to connect, I personally believe the bridge between the worlds is thinnest daily during the crepuscular hours. This would be during dawn and golden dusk.
Some believe the veil is thinnest when the airwave interference is lowest, and this would be during the time of day known as nautical night, or sometime between 11-4am.
Thin Veil Locations
There are many locations where there are thin spots between earth and spirit, but the easiest way to find them for yourself is in the spaces where a meeting of the worlds exists. This is usually where the veil is very thin.
Where the veil is thought to be thin on the globe:
at meetings of land and water
at meetings of night and day
at ecosystem edges
places where lots of natural energy is being generated, such as at waterfalls
anywhere two ecosystems overlap
mass tragedy sites
places where energy meridians overlap
Now imagine going to one of these locations, at one of the above times of day, after or during a spiritual awakening experience. Talk about magical.
So, Can the veil be thin during specific periods of the year?
Yes, with exceptions, and I discuss that in this post: Halloween: Is The Veil Between The Worlds Really Thinner?
Wherever a cultural event celebrates the Spirit World, it is thought to draw down the veil for that area of the world, just for that time. This is not the same for all regions of the world, but the Fall is a popular time in many cultures.
In the United States, our veil is thinnest whenever we celebrate the Spirit World, so for us, it would technically be thinnest -
Halloween to All Souls Day
Christmas and Easter
These are times when ancestors and the spirit world are often remembered most, making them thin veil times for our country, but there are others.
What happens at a Thin Veil spot, time or person?
As Bri, also known as the HoodWitch, writes,
“Because “the veil” or the energetic and psychic barrier between dimensions was said to be thinner at this time, it allowed the living to have increased intuition and psychic abilities."
Thin veil spots, locations, and periods of the day are supposed to be great for heightened intuition, and I do believe this is true.
I also feel the receptions you get when you tap in during these periods are purer. I feel this is because thin veil spots are usually spots where yin energy or mother earth energy is magnified.
Now imagine going to one of these locations, at one of the above times of day, after or during a spiritual awakening experience, during a sacred day.
So to recap:
The veil between worlds is thinnest during the crepuscular hours and nautical night.
During specific periods of our lives.
When we are closest to our element.
Usually at places where a lot of energy is being generated or transferred.
During times when the Spirit World is most celebrated in your country, for the United States that's Halloween.
Thin veil spots can be magical places to experience increased intuition.
There are of course magical sites we can go to when we want to experience that special spiritual spark, for example, I like boulder fields.
You may like somewhere else, either way, you don’t have to go anywhere to experience the magic. We can all experience the thin-veil magic anywhere when tuned into our lives, our selves, and our traditions.
And as you can see, there are many options for experiencing a thin veil.
So think about it…
What time of day do you feel most tapped in? Have you experienced a veil thinning moment? Is there a certain holiday honoring Spirit that feels more magical to you? Is there somewhere you can go in your neighborhood that connects you to your element?
