There is a great curiosity in certain circles about mystical experiences. Many claim to have had extraordinary paranormal experiences that they cite as proof of their spiritual evolution.A common word in people’s spiritual lexicon nowadays is samadhi, often seen as a certificate of mystical attainment.

This, in turn, loosens one from the physical such that there is a space between oneself and one’s body.
