I believe many spiritual experiences can be labeled peak or mystical. And that includes contact with spirit, whether spontaneous or by choice. Any contact or communication can be awe-inspiring, confirming, healing, unifying. Realizing that one is not alone and that there is a connection to the Divine is empowering. Accepting that we are all spiritual beings, whether in the physical body as a spiritual being, or on the other side as a spiritual being – we are all one and the same.
When we begin to acknowledge that we are connected to one another, to the Divine, we have laid the groundwork to sharpen our higher spiritual sense. We are powerful transmitters and receivers. If we learn to think of spirit communication as an exchange of energy, a radio signal, or an open telephone line, it becomes a normal event, and there is nothing paranormal about it. I personally like Joseph Campbell’s explanation of a peak experience as the moments in our lives when we experience our “relationship to the harmony of being.”
