A mystical experience is a subjective perception that is hard to comprehend or describe with rational or simple language. It usually involves a sense of connection with something greater than oneself, such as a higher force, and a temporary alteration of one’s sense of time and space. mystical experiences have been studied in psychology from different perspectives, some emphasizing their pathological nature and others their spiritual component.
