Spiritual Phenomena are extrasensory human phenomena that require a connection to a participating supernatural being in order to happen.
Occurrences of Spiritual Phenomena have been recorded for thousands of years. Many believe that Spiritual Phenomena are in opposition to religion. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The faculties of spiritual vision, hearing and sensing are shown from the very beginning of time to the present moment. They have been recorded in history books, journals, diaries, in the Bible from beginning to the very end. Spiritual Phenomena were accepted as natural phenomena, not as unusual, fictitious or a false occurrence. The Bible also takes the seeing and the hearing of the Spiritual in a very matter-of-fact way, as if pointing to the complete naturalness of anything super-physical. More often than not, the sights and sounds were not of a subjective nature, as on many occasions they were witnessed by more than one individual and were shown to be completely external.
The intervention of Spiritual Phenomena into the affairs of mankind have always occurred. The appearance of the Spiritual in this world is not restricted to those few occurrences recorded in the Bible, and not only continue to occur daily, but more often than you would think. There is no culture, no religion, no ethnic group that have not had experiences of Spiritual Phenomena.
