Question:
Can we explain mystical experiences as some sort of physical phenomena?


Answer:
Physical phenomena refer to the matters and forces studied in physics, such as magnetic fields and forces, electromagnetic waves, electromagnetic induction, optics, velocity of light, thermal energy, gaseous energy, gasification, and so on. Mystical experiences generally refer to people’s receptions and sensations of spiritual forces. The correct way to generate mystical experiences is to attain extraordinary functions of the mind, body and sense organs through methods of cultivation. Mystical experiences may also be taken as the function of resonant responses between practitioners and the buddhas, bodhisattvas, various divine beings as well as ghost and deities.

You know you want to benefit from daily practice, but you don't know how to go about doing it.

First, you should have a proper mental attitude towards practice. Second, you should know and use a method.
