Are possessions by the goddess genuine?

I have come across people who when they chant some devata mantras, experience what they call “devi coming into their bodies” and often some questions are answered and ailments cured. I know genuine people who go through this and think it is a spiritual experience. How do we understand this phenomenon?

    Thank you for the brilliant answer prabhuji. There were 2 aspects to my question and both have been answered very clearly. The first is the difference between possession by departed spirits and interaction between demigods and their worshipers, and the second is the difference between material and spiritual experience.
