Staring and bulging eyes
More details of this are given in the science section under the same heading - Staring and bulging eyes.
One of the side effects of a spiritual experience can be that the person’s eyes bulge and appear to be staring. It is possible to get both dilated pupils and narrowed pupils.
A spiritual experience can be obtained, as we have seen, with eyes closed or open, any bulging can occur in either case.
In the past this was looked on as the true sign of the mystic – he had ‘gone to the other side’ and what he was seeing was so extraordinary that he was rapt with wonder and his eyes were popping out of his head at the sight.
But this is not the reason for the bulging, the bulging happens whatever the person has ‘seen’ - again see science section Staring and bulging eyes
