A Thin Time – Christine Valters Paintner

Sister Moon on the evening before All Hallows’ Eve

“In the ancient Celtic imagination, this was considered to be a ‘thin time’ when the veil between heaven and earth grew more transparent and the wisdom of our ancestors was closer to us. We are reassured that we are not alone, that we share the world with a great ‘cloud of witnesses’ and ‘communion of saints’ just across the veil. These next several days are a threshold space and in thresholds we are closer to the other world which is always here. The communal honoring of the dead continues for the whole month of November.”

How will you honour this time of the thinning of the veil? What will you do to create the time and space to allow the wisdom of your ancestors and spiritual guides to flow through you?
