Veil
Three notable "veils" are:
1. Forgetfulness re our prior life as a mortal on this earth. This is to provide a true testing ground of our character, and we agreed to this. It will be removed during a future phase of our progression. A "veil" separates mortal life and a spiritual realm after death. This is a dimensional separation since the two share the same time and space, but are in different dimensions, according to Joseph Smith Junior. There also are "veils" between Telestial, Terrestrial and Celestial kingdoms (1 Corinthians 15:40-41 and Doctrine and Covenants section 76). These likely are physical location differences, rather than dimensional in nature. (See Plan of Life Chart).
2. A veil in the temple endowment ceremony symbolizes what must be done prior to being admitted into the Celestial kingdom.
3. Women cover their face with a veil when participating in a temple prayer circle. This is symbolic of women temporarily coming into the presence and protection of the Lord. It also was an ancient practice in Israel.
