So this idea that someone is elevated to a "higher spiritual plane" is New Age occult. Walking in the Spirit is living according to the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, gentleness, kindness, patience, faithfulness, goodness and self-control.

The notion of a "spiritual world" originally comes from the monastic mysticism of the Middle Ages where through total separation from the world, locked away in a small cell, the monks achieve heightened spiritual awareness of God, the universe and everything. They didn't call it "New Age" way back then, but it is the same thing.
