The Irish call them thin places. For some the phrase is synonymous with holy or sacred, a place of transcendence, where one can sense the Divine and feel lifted up. Others are referring to a place where the veil is thin, where there is a gateway to the Other World or portal to the Fairy Kingdom. Still others are referring to the notion of vortexes or sites where they experience a vibrational, mystical energy. Some thin sites are natural, some pagan, some Christian, and still others made by ancient peoples who somehow knew how to channel the light of sun and moon.
