Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
Yes I have also had this experience, when I was attending a Christian retreat for a week, early every morning I would cheerfully join a prayer group, the last morning the Pastor talked on the sweet incence of Jesus and The Holy Spirit he took us through a brief study and prayer and finished with Worship the room was filled with such a beautiful scented fragrance it lingered in my nostrils the whole day.

Yes so have I,, I smelled a powerful bust of wild honeysucklers. Beautiful.. Oh what Heaven is going to be like, and the beautiful aromas... (Please pray for me as well.) Be warned though, the weight is going to be heavy. Visit my church web site www.churchofgod.org

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
this phenomenon happened to me in the 90's when I was way into God, the Bible, and fellowship.

the aroma is sweet and spicy, like an ancient fragrance. I feel incredibly empowered and edified by it.

I've only caught whiffs of it over the past several years, occasional and fleeting

He came back in a big way last night at a revival, and the fragrance stayed for hours.

He's still right here, I discern Him through scent. Does anyone else experience this?

It's the anointing and its back.

If anyone needs prayer, also let me know... I'll be happy to pray a powerful prayer of faith at this time.

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
Thanks to everyone who posted on this thread. I read all the way back to the original post. OK, maybe it doesn't make sense to some of you and you are most definitely entitled to your opinions, but being rude truly isn't helping. Simply saying, "hey look I don't beleve in what you are saying" and go on your merry way would be better received by all.

In doing research to try and explain what happened to me last night, I found this thread.

It was around 11pm or so and I was praying. Due to back problems, my husband has been sleeping on the floor next to our bed, so he was fast asleep at this time. As I said, I was praying and all of the sudden I could feel the area of the bed near my knee give in as if someone was sitting on the bed. I could smell this very sweet, lovely, clean-kind-of-mixed-with-flowers smell. It completely took over my senses and I felt almost like someone was touching my knee, but it wasn't as strong as a touch. It was more like an energy......like prickly needles, but GENTLY. Nothing that hurt........which lead me to believe it was energy. After about probably 30 seconds or more, the smell began to fade as well as the feeling of energy at my knee. I halted in prayer (due to the fact that I was freaked out) and the feeling and the smell returned. I couldn't see anything, but could most definitely feel it so I began praying again.

I am not telling this, because I am asking to be insulted. It really freaked me out and I was scared. Today, after researching and talking to a friend of mine (as well as my husband), I feel much better about it. If it was an angel then WONDERFUL -- AMEN !!! If it was the Holy Spirit himself, then an even bigger AMEN would apply.

There are things I have been praying for, for quite some time. Does anyone think this is some kind of answer or message?

Please......it freaked me out initially, so please cut me some slack.

Jesus is Lord --- he is the truth, the light and the way. There is no way to the Father, except through him !!!!

Yours in Christ.

 Quoting: Blessed in CT 1084262


Sounds like an angel to me. I believe in guardian angels, or angels that are sent to help us, to minister to us, to uplift us and encourage us.

I've felt the Holy Spirit several times in my life, sometimes mind blowing experiences, and sometimes just gentle peaceful love. God gives us what we need at the time, and it's never the same exact experience.

Last week I was laying in bed praying and I felt the Holy Spirit, it was like a very heavy warm blanket of love. That's really the only way I can describe it. He is so awesome!

God is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ps 141:2

Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.


The phenomenon might be an effect of the Holy Spirit on the believer. Such as when the bush burned, but was not consumed. This can happen during sincere worship.

How about a prayer to draw more unbelievers to God and for those that are already there that wish to feel the Holy Spirit's presence more strongly would, in fact, be able to do so.

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
Paranoia and denial are the sisters of enslavement, yet awareness is the mother of empowerment. Awareness requires one to openly assess all the relevant information then formulate a conclusion. "I'm sticking to my beliefs" is a choice to deny the relevant info that doesn't support your existing beliefs. This enslaves you to someone else's empowerment, because it is never in your best interest to allow others to have awareness over your world that you yourself do not have. You may not believe in a higher power, which saddens me for you are missing out on the most positive energy you can achieve.. Some are in dis belief until something profound happens, even then some just state it as consequence.. If everything is a perception and my perception is there is a god, yours may be different, but telling me otherwise makes you an elitist. If you believe strong enough about it, it will manifest itself.

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
Yes ...I have smelled the sweet fragrance of His presence..always for me it has been during deep worship...although a couple of times when I had been late getting to the church ....it overwhelmed me as it hit my senses as I walked in. Last night we had a wonderful worship praying for our city, families, country and each other and when I smelled that sweet sweet fragrance I said to myself "here we go" and yes it got intense...God's power and presence directed the evening...It was still lingering in my nostrils this morning.....beautiful!

Sometimes when I pray, I can smell flowers burning, like roses on fire. It's the Ruach Ha'Kodesh.

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
I also have had the fragrance of the Holy Spirit fill a section of my house at one time or another. I also was unnerved by it the first time, this week 4.9.12 I was sitting in my family room and a definite fragrance of roses was presented to me. It was undeniable and it lasted a few minutes. I called a christian friend and she said to pray asking if it was from the Holy Spirit to ask for it to return, and it did return. I enjoyed the pleasant fragrance and knew He was with me... To the people who have not had the experience, do not be unkind, it may happen to you one day and you will be frightened and amazed at the same time. I am a solid individual who has been a business owner for 19 years. I can not explain it but I have had this experience 4 times in my life.

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
Yes, I too have smelled it! I was just asking my wife this evening if she ever smelled it. To me it's not as sweet as flowers as it is sweet and savory at the same time. It's nearly always during worship. I've smelled it in most other churches I've been in but not my home church. For many other reasons we've been searching for another home church. I always just passed it off thinking there is no way God is going to make a physical impression on my through my olfactory senses and that maybe the churches use a particular artificial scent to fool people into thinking they've experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit. But now I'm reading for the first time that others have smelled it too and also that it doesn't smell the same to each person.

I smelt the fragrance twice, the first time I ran and hid in the bathroom! The second time I was talking to an elderly woman! Its such a beautiful mixed scent that is so wonderful and intoxicating that you want to keep smelling it forever!!! I wish it would happen again! I thought I was crazy because the people in the room with me didnt smell it! I am glad you have had this blessed experience also!!
GOD is more than amazing!! Keep praying and Seeking GOD and HIS kingdom, no matter how unbelievers try to discourage you!! We are more than conquerors in CHRIST JESUS

When I smell the HOLY spirit it is a smell similar to roses. I can be alone or with other people and ask "Do you smell that and no one smells this except me. Are there scripture to back this up or is it something God believes I personally need?

Re: I can smell the Holy Spirit! Anyone else?
Today my pastor preached on the Holy Spirit from Ephesians 6 and praying I'm the Holy Spirit and to learn to pray at home or anywhere as much as possible.. So I had to help a neighbor today by taking her to a few stores .. I stayed in the car when she went in and was praying in the Spirit the while time.. As she came back to the car I stopped but started to smell a smell kinda like beautiful mix if flower and mur .. Then I took her to another store and I did the same thing... But this time when she got in the car she was over taken by the beautiful smell and she could not figure out why she was smelling this pleasant smell and also said it started when we stopped at the other store.. I told her that's when I started to smell it and what I had been doing.. Praying in the Holy Spirit... That was a first , and I still get a whiff of the beautiful smell time to time.. I feel it's the Holy Father letting me know He's with me and heard me..
