Charismatic is an umbrella term used to describe those Christians who believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit seen in the first century Christian Church, such as glossalalia, healing and miracles, are available to contemporary Christians and ought to be experienced and practised today.
Charismatic churches that have embraced Transformationalism are likely to have a worship style that reflects this theological stance.
Charismatic and Pentecostal manifestations such as Speaking in Tongues, being Slain in the Spirit, the laughing and crying caused by the Toronto blessing and the placebo effect of Faith healing can all be explained by the prevalence of Religious ecstasy in these gatherings.

She described the "supernatural benefit from the manifestation of this charism of praise as one that lifts the soul into the joy of God and is not forgotten but `impressed upon the imagination.'" Sometimes such jubilation would bring on a spiritual inebriation which lasted the entire day.

While many Catholic charismatics believe that to accept Jesus as their personal savior is a guarantee of eternal salvation, they also know that they can become remiss or drop out of the fellowship completely.

At these conferences, Charismatics from many denominations, including the Catholics, mingle and fellowship together in an ecumenical unity that is not based on sound Biblical beliefs, but largely on a common "experience," that of "tongues speaking." This is indeed a shaky foundation for fellowship or unity, especially as "tongues speaking" is and can be counterfeited.

 Catholic Charismatics
The Catholic charismatic movement sometimes leaves the impression that what is not due to our conscious thoughts and intentions ought to be attributed to the direct action of the Holy Spirit or to the devil.
This seems to apply to the charismatic movement as well where all too easily every vision and locution is dubbed to come from the Holy Spirit whereas they can just as easily be coming from the mind of the person or perhaps even the devil.

 The Truth Over Against the False Teaching of the Charismatics
The name Charismatics is used to denote those who, within many different denominations, claim that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a second baptism received only by some Christians.

Don't be confused with the term, "Charismatic renewal" -- "Renewal' at that time (the 1970's) simply was the term used then to mean that the Holy Spirit was moving across denominations to 'renew' Christians with this baptism or infilling of the Holy Spirit, as it was popularly called by the Pentecostals.
