Have you had a mystical experience? 

Have you had a mystical experience? 

Whether it happens naturally or is brought on by a psychedelic, researchers define a mystical experience as having 6 key qualities: 

  1. sense of unity or oneness (interconnectedness of all people and things, all is one, pure consciousness)
  2. strong sense of sacredness or reverence
  3. noetic quality (a sense of encountering ultimate reality, often described as “more real than real”
  4. deeply felt positive mood (universal love, joy, peace)
  5. transcendence of time and space (past and present collapse into the present moment)
  6. ineffability (the experience is very hard to put into words)
