For thousands of years, people have reported deeply religious visions spontaneously or while under the influence of substances. These events brought sudden and striking clarity to their lives.
Even if you encounter God under the influence of drugs, it can have lasting and positive mental health benefits.
Modern medicine disputes any effect, but latest research proves that such an encounter often leads to enhanced mental health. Why?
Described as being the most meaningful and spiritually significant moment of their lives, those who were studied said the event inspired permanent and positive changes, such as increased life satisfaction, purpose and meaning. Most no longer feared death.
Two-thirds of atheists in the study stopped referring to themselves as such afterwards. Being motivated for change is the first step even if you do encounter God.
