Around this time of year there is much talk about “the veils are thinning and the spiritual world is moving in close.” What does that exactly mean- veils, thinning and why should you care? And what does this have to do with you or your beloved pet?
The best explanation I came across for the meaning of veils thinning and why is from Tess Whitehurst, a soul sister who believes like I do that “Life is Magical.”
“At Samhain/Halloween, that relentless, all-pervasive Mystery is as close as it ever gets. And now we’ve arrived at what we mean when we talk about “the veil.” You might say it’s the place where the everyday illusion of separation brushes up against the divine truth of eternity and universal interconnection. The place where form meets spirit, seen meets unseen, known meets unknown.
Why does the veil thin at Samhain? Because the days are getting shorter and the natural world is preparing to temporarily withdraw from the realm of life and growth. The harvest cycle is waning, but it’s not gone. This means Samhain is a transition: a doorway between the season of life and the season of death. Beneath this realm of constant change, there is a wide open space of eternity. A place of stillness in which the appearance of change arises. A serene openness to which we will always return, and with which we are one, even at this very moment.”
Now what does this have to do with your beloved pet? A lot, since animals are much more energetically attuned with the earth and the spirit world. As the veils thin the animals feel the closeness of the spirit world. If your beloved is elderly and ready to cross they feel the pull and sense the ease on which to cross over back to spirit form. Psychic abilities are enhanced at this time as well so have a conversation with your elderly pet and hear their wishes on how they want to move on so you can honor and support them.
For your beloved pets that are in spirit now is a good time to connect with them. Honoring them and remembering them by sharing stories invites them to come closer. Then you can tell them what's on your heart and listen with all your psychic senses for responses. Imagine how wonderful it will be to feel their presence - the soft head nuzzle, the weight of them in your lap, the pleasant familiar sense of them. Don't trick yourself that you won't feel them. Instead treat yourself to the mystery of life - connection and love. The animals always come when called.
