Liminal Spaces

This week’s prompt over on Instagram is “Working with the Cosmos”. Cosmos is originally a Greek word, meaning both "order" and "world”. The ancient Greeks thought that the world was perfectly harmonious and in impeccable order. This got me thinking, and I arrived at liminal spaces.

To be in a liminal space you have not yet left somewhere, and you have not yet arrived somewhere else. It’s a space between an ending and a beginning, a world between worlds, a transition between two phases.

Examples of liminal spaces are cemetery gates, cliff edges, stairwells, doorways, graveyards, crossroads, wells, valleys, abandoned buildings, by large bodies of water.

The veil is considered thin in these places; they’re a boundary between this world and the other world, and as such their energy can increase the power of spells and rituals. They are great places for spirit work, meditation, astral travel and divination.
