Questions from someone exploring the Orthodox faith...

Hello everyone, I have another question for you. I was wondering what the Orthodox perspective is of a kind of religious experience which many Evangelicals encourage, people falling in the Spirit, laughing in the Spirit, crying etc. I have been to the camp Soul Survivor last summer and was surrounded by people going through these experiences during the morning and evening meeting and I cried myself. Honestly I don't know why I was crying and I don't know what that experience meant, I can't remember ever crying so hard. I know there are some who say that these experiences are all psychological and others who believe that it is the work of the Holy Spirit.
What is the Orthodox view on such experiences?
