Many religious and mystical traditions see religious experiences as revelations caused by divine agency rather than ordinary natural processes. They are considered real encounters with God. People who can relate with religious experiences wonder if it is a feature of the human brain amenable to normal scientific study. According to spiritual research a person has 5 senses, mind and intellect but also the five subtle organs of smell, touch, sight, taste and hearing. These subtle senses cannot be understood by scientific or external means though they are highly rational. According to spiritual research, the subtle senses of smell, taste and sight awaken at the 40% spiritual level. At such a stage one can experience subtle smells from the spiritual dimension, such as sandalwood, can taste sweet positive vibrations and will be able to see colors from the spiritual world. This does not mean that once we reach the 40% spiritual level we will be able to get all the spiritual experiences at will, but it serves as a general rule of thumb as to when we will be able to experience the subtle dimension. However if one does not get any spiritual experience they need not worry. If one already has faith then they may need not experience anything from the subtle dimension, as the great saying in spirituality is the greatest spiritual experience is the feeling of bliss and peace.
Experiencing something which is beyond the comprehension of the five senses, mind and intellect constitutes a ‘spiritual experience’.
