Where Is The Veil This Halloween?

Two years ago I wrote Does The Veil Between Worlds Thin Around Halloween? to suggest ways you can connect with your loved ones in spirit.  If you would like to do that, now is the perfect time.  Go have a read and I’ll be here when you get back.

It’s true that traditionally it is much easier to contact the dead at Halloween and the few days before and after it. 

This year, you may not even have been thinking of it, and already you have visitors!

I’ve had stories of partially formed cats standing in the doorway between rooms again.  This is always a commonly reported sighting, cat lover or no.

Televisions are turning on and off.  I was very creeped out when that happened to me a couple of years ago while I was home alone.  Imagine you’re alone and suddenly you hear a tv switching on in the next room.  No animals are nearby to have bumped it on in their travels.  No electricity problems.  Sound is coming from the tv that does not match the scene, and in one case kept playing even after the tv was switched off.

I had a report of pots and pans banging and flying around kitchens in the middle of the night.  Well, we don’t know that’s what happened, because nothing was out-of-place.  Loud noises and bangs were emanating from the kitchen, that’s all we really know.

Many people are reporting that uncomfortable feeling when they simply get that feeling that they aren’t alone.

I’m not having that “favorite time of year” feeling too much this Halloween.  This has been an absolutely wild ride of a month.  There has been constant major activity here and for many of you this October.  It feels like we crammed a whole year (at least!) into the first two weeks of the month, and the last two have been spent in recovery.  Many people are in major transitions, have moved, have disconnected from major relationships, have lost pets, and there is a collective wound licking going on.  Few people are “up”, mainly they are a little down or just in stasis, recovery mode.

It is getting so much easier to access intuitive or psychic information.  With one side of their mouth people might say how they don’t really “believe in that stuff” and with the other side they are telling me about some major synchronicity or asking what I make of some psychic phenomenon that occurred right in front of their face.  Many of them don’t even realize that I am interested in it.  It’s becoming every day conversation.  I don’t think they even realize how funny they sound or that they just contradicted themselves.  Intuitive access is becoming more commonplace than ever.  Part of that is because it’s never been as close to us as it is now.

You’re not “getting old.”  You’re not “losing your mind.”  It’s all right there, if you will only pause to take it in.  Just stop for a beat and consider what you just saw, heard, or sensed.

My friend went to a restaurant on a road trip with his friend.  When they sat down in a “random booth” they noticed right away that both of their names were carved into the table.

Have you noticed how much easier it is lately to pick up your friend’s thoughts?

Even if you’re not a typical empath, a lot of you are walking into rooms and sensing the emotional tone straight away.  You know how the people are feeling before anyone says a word.

Can you look at a photo and “just know” plenty of information about the person in the photo?  When you start to pick up contradictory information that’s a good sign that you are deep into their psyche – people are complex, and you’re picking up the nuances of their personality.

I know that “the other side” is not somewhere up in the sky, it’s all around us all of the time, but sometimes I look up anyway.  I guess that’s ingrained from childhood.  Some spirits feel very far away and others feel like they’re sitting right next to me or standing right behind me.  OK, that’s because they are, sort of!  What I mean is, energetically speaking, they seem “close” or “far.”

This Halloween it doesn’t feel like the veil is thinner and Spirit is closer.  It feels like nothing changed.  It feels like they are right here, all of the time.  Maybe that fabled “veil” doesn’t exist in the same way as it used to anymore.

  1. Hi Julie

    So is all this like a turmoil. I feel restless also don’t feel so great for the last few days. Hope it passes. Not really a Halloween lover either. When I was a kid I lived in Canada and they celebrate Halloween with fireworks, I guess to ward off the evil spirits. Kids used to throw firecrackers at other kids, even though they were not supposed to. I liked the treats and getting to go outside when it was dark but I was always a little fearful of the fireworks. But I do believe in all those ghosts and spirits and even had one residing at my house for 14 years.
    But for Halloween, I am always glad when November 1st arrives.

    • Mary, I loved the story you linked to! Everyone go read it.

      Yes, it’s like a turmoil, exactly. If you’ve been feeing “off” it’s just the energies right now and it will pass soon.

  2. Hi Julie!

    Partially formed cats! Where is Johnny Depp when we need him?!! Odd things are churning for sure and I agree with you – the veil is not necessarily thinner -it’s got holes in it or not the same fabric, you know? I have moments of hearing people talking and, say it with me, no one is there! Odd things moving right in my face: a rose that bloomed and should have died days ago(still pristine) sits in a jar of water on my counter and starts rocking side to side in said jar -no breeze, no bouncing, nothing. Just swaying. Sheesh. Did you ever read your boys the book ‘The Little Old Lady Who Was Afraid of Nothing’? check it out. I think she’s got the right idea…
    Happy 31st. Light a candle!

    • Hi Anne, Yes, I said it with you! “Partially formed cats” just means that part of them is visible, they don’t fully apparate (not that they come with bloody arms or missing legs!)

      A couple of months ago I kept getting up to check and see who was visiting me, and I finally realized that while I was hearing murmuring, it wasn’t any live human doing it. It just sounds so real 🙂 ! I had to ask them to stop my hearing it, because it was seriously unsettling. I am not used to that.

      Swaying roses – now that is cool!

      Yes, I was just reading them that book the other night! Brave old lady. I think we have more books on Halloween subjects that anything else, courtesy of my Dad.

  3. The challenge for me around Halloween is that so many people tend to experiment with spirit, opening doors and “playing” with elements they are not trained in or familiar with. But I do love that people are so open to exploration!

    This year there is so much astrological energy around Halloween. I think the energy is amplified. Maybe the idea of the “veil thinning” is really our doubts dissolving…which, as you say, can happen year-round.

    I still sometimes look up to sky to see spirit, too…even though I feel it / them all around.

    • Hi Joy, Yes never experiment unless you know what you’re doing! Not that it’s complicated, but basic psychic hygiene only helps. The energy has certainly been chaotic at best, but it’s clearing out some old yuck we don’t need to carry around as baggage anymore. Glad I am not the only one who still looks “heavenward!”

  4. I really must insist that somebody send some partially formed cats over to my house. They would probably enjoy our fully formed birds. And I know I would love it. 🙂
