Type of Spiritual Experience
In many of the other descriptions within the general category of extreme emotion, the emotion generating the experience is negative. But it is also possible to provoke a spiritual experience via intense and overwhelming happiness and euphoria.
Memory often seems to be a weak substitute for the actual moment itself, thus any form of spiritual experience is more likely to come at the time the happiness was felt – at the time the event that caused all this happiness occurred.
In the example here it was the happiness felt from love and the knowledge that this love would be 'consumated'
A description of the experience
My [OOB] was not due to either emergency or strain, but sheer happiness. I had just become engaged and I cannot remember any other time of feeling such pure happiness
