Elevation - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elevation_(emotion
Seeing/hearing something that can stir your emotions (Families can be together forever, reunite with loved ones who have passed on, be a part of god’s “One True Church”, etc.), combine that elevation with the power of suggestion (You will feel a “burning in your bosom”), and many DO “feel the spirit”.
Nothing special, or “from god”…just a bottle of snake oil being sold to you.
Unfortunately (or fortunately), in my 40 years as a born-in-the-church member, I NEVER “felt the spirit”.
