Intuitive Glimmerings are similar, if not identical with, Peak Experiences.

Intuitive Glimmerings are quite common. Abraham Maslow suggested only the mentally sick did not have them.

Edward Carpenter notes that "to almost all mankind flashes (or glimmers) of the same thing come in those moments of exaltation or intuition which form the basis of religion, art, literature, and much even of practical life.[1]

Intuitive glimmerings often lead to great connection experiences, and thus perhaps may be considered Push Experiences. St. Teresa of Avila notes that sometimes, God (read Consciousness) gives "consolations, favours and emotions13 which begin to move their desires, and occasionally even brings them to a state of contemplation..."
