The Sun has a special connection to the Spiritual Realm. As the giver and light and life, the eternal supply of energy for life on Earth and the daily renewer of life - the Sun is symbolic of oneness and connection to truth.
Each day, as the sun rises and the sun sets, new chapters are opened and new chapters are closed. There is, indeed, a black and a white and a distinctness in the day and a night. The realm of Spirit is represented by the Sky, as in Heaven and the realm of Human, is represented by the Earth, the material world.
But each day, there is a uniting of the two. The sun seemingly joins with the earth, resting gently and momentarily along the horizon in dawnbreak and in twilight.
This closeness of the Spiritual sun to the physical Earth is a time when there is little separation between yourself and the realm of Spirit. If you've ever felt the magic of existing in the entire length of a sunset, simply being fully present to witness and be with the whole event - there's a reason for this.
Those in the Spiritual realm were closest to you then.
The veil is thin at these times - the time when the Oneness and Energy of the Sky meets the vastness and diversity of the eternal Earth. When there is a meeting of the worlds here and no matter where you are or who you are, you have access to this space, should you wish to access it.
The unity of dawn break and sun set, the opening and closing chapters, is symbolic of life renewal and of life end, of the complete circle of physical life and spiritual life, encapsulated in two sacred sunlit experiences.
The best way to experience these universal times of veil thinness, is to set the intention to connect with Spirit and simply be in the presence of the unity of sun and earth. During this time, you have the most unique access to connect with your Higher Self, deceased Loved Ones, Spirit Guides, Fairies, and Angels. Simply, set the intention to do so - and then go be with it.
When Can You Access a Veil?
We each have personal moments of experience where the veil is thinnest for us. These moments, can be achieved through meditation and practice, but also, by simply finding moments and periods of time when your Spirit is free and released from physical ties. For myself, this time is in the evenings, for others, this time is during the dreamscape or in the middle of the night.
Do you believe in an early morning witching hour? If so, consider for a moment that this is not the time of most spiritual activity for all beings, but simply, for your being. During the hours of 2-3 a.m., most humans have the least tasks blinking as urgent on their to-do lists, and their minds are less complicated with thoughts of errands and earthly demands.
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.
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 to know this one rule:
In the spaces where a meeting of the worlds exists, the veil is thinnest there.
Veils are Thinnest at Meetings of:
- Land and Sea
- Rock and Soil
- Sky and Mountain
- Forest and Prairie
- Wetland and Dryland
- Earth Center and Earth Surface (Hot Springs, Volcanoes)
- Sky and Water (Waterfalls)
The larger the space where this occurs, usually the thinner the veil, but not always. It's highly possible that you can find a buzzing spot of spiritual unity in even the smallest of forest clearings.
To find the best location for you, choose from these sacred meeting locations above, the further select the one that is most special, unique and meaningful to you. If you have a secret waterfall you always visit on your most favorite hike - it is likely that not only is there a universally thin veil there, but your personal veil is thinnest in location, as well. You need not search far for the sacred meeting place that moves your personal Spirit and lifts your veil. And it's worth it - the Spiritual world will indeed be most willing to unite with you here.
If you are looking to connect with Spirit easily, find yourself outside at the next sunset and open your heart. Understanding the locations of thin veils will assist you, as well as understanding the personal times in which you are most open to connection.
