In the LDS Church, in which I was born and raised in, there is an emphasis on the veil between world’s. Mormons are taught that there is veil that blocks our senses from perceiving the Spirit World (where the Mormons belive the dead reside), The Heavens, and the Throne of God. They teach that this veil is placed on us and carried with us. Times when they behold visions or see spirits they say that the veil was “Thinned” in order for them to witness the other side.
Today after I finishing an evocation I walked into my kitchen to make a sandwich and ponder what I learned. I left the door to my temple room open to air it out. As I turned around to put the grape jelly back in the fridge I saw a figure comprised of the smoke stroll out into my kitchen. Surprised, and a little worried that I may not have closed a gateway properly, I began to trance out to view the spirit better.
“Oh shit, hi Mom” To my surprise it was the spirit of my dead mother. She followed me from her place on my ancestral altar to see me. We had a quick conversation, she scolded me for cussing, and she left.
I have never tried to evoke an ancestor, I only keep an altar and talk to them. I am a little surprised that my mother would just pop in. It got me thinking about the Mormon belief of a veil that resides just outside of the physical body.
My question to you, or those who have experience with soul travel is, have you noticed anything like this while leaving your body?
