Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
From J F Campbell’s Popular Tales of the Western Highlands – volume 1
When they fled, they came to a great cataract and there was no way of getting over it unless they could walk on two hairs that were a bridge across the cataract and Maol a Mhoibean ran with ease over the two hairs; but her sisters could not walk on the two hairs and Maol a Mhoibean had to turn back and carry her sisters, one after one, over the cataract on the two hair bridge.
