Experiencing the Divine – “A Physiological Response to A Spiritual Experience”

With the 100th anniversary of Fatima coming up this next week, I wanted to share my own experience and hypothesis once again.

Why do some people have a physiological response to the divine? Why do some experience the “anointing of the Holy Spirit” and others do not?Image

The following testimonial is a sharing of a personal paradox:

I have always had a difficult time believing in things without some proof. As a scientist, who is also a charismatic Christian, I have also accepted that faith is a gift from God and that faith does not need physical evidence. I have also come to the conclusion that there is NO separation between the physical and “spiritual” world.

One day as the woman is sitting and praying after mass, she sees a younger woman (an Anglo woman) in her late 50’s and she…
