For as long as humankind has been alive, we have been trying to make sense of our existence. We often experience existentialist thoughts like “why am I here” or even ‘how did I get here?” We’re trying to impose meaning on what we don’t understand. For some of us, we simply are just trying to exist. We’re living in the moment. We’re in a state of gratitude for being here even if we don’t necessarily know when or how we got here, or how long we’ll be here for. Some of us have developed a spiritual ability to exist among the unknown and yet still feel connected to the universe at large.

It turns out this spiritual experience is powerful than we ever thought, according to science.

​Science is suggesting that more than one part in the brain is activated when processing a spiritual experience, whether connecting with a higher being or the universe at large.

In fact, some of the studies even found that when spirituality was experienced and practiced long-term it actually decreased activity in the right parietal lobe which is what makes us stay focused on ourselves. This means that spiritual experiences seemed to increase our sense of selflessness in the brain.
