There are Celtic myths that the most magical times of the day are the tween times. The tween times are the first light of day, exactly twelve noon, the last light of day and exactly twelve midnight. The tween times are when you should listen for glimpses or giggles from the fairies, watch for leprechauns, and the veil between our world and the spirit world wafts and often parts for peeks inside. There is a legend that rabbits, who are most active at dawn and dusk will lead you to where the fairies live if you are able to follow them.
There are also tween places, however, just like the tween times you need to be open and believe to experience them. Tween places are thought to be portals between our world and other dimensions. In forests where the trees form archways or even hallways, where vines have grown together forming canopies and rock formations that appear as doorways or even hallways through time and space are all potential tween places.
All legends, myths and even fairy tales are based in some truth experienced by someone. But you don’t have to believe in fairies, leprechauns or magical rabbits to know there is a mystical aspect to our world. Times and places often hold an energy all their own, truthfully all time and all places have energy some are just more obvious energy frequencies. Each of us also have our own unique energy frequency which is why some of us are morning people, some night people, some of us prefer to be in the mountains, some of us feel at peace beside or even on the ocean, these preferences are all connected to our individual energy frequencies.
Tuning into your own energy frequency and learning when you are most creative, alert, at peace, and feel the most centered and balanced will help you understand yourself better and be more in tune with the universal energies. Living in your own natural rhythm, then integrating yourself with the universal rhythm you are most in tune with will make it easier to be more centered and balanced.
I’m most in tune with morning, this is when I sense, there is magic afoot in the tween time, just as night slips away and light is casting shadows of dawn.
