Numinosum (“new-men-Ŏ-sum”), a term regularly employed by depth psychologist Carl Jung, could be defined as a divine quality belonging to an object or the influence of an invisible presence that causes a peculiar alteration of consciousness. Some describe this as “holy” or “spiritual” while others experience it as “ethereal,” “ineffable,” or “intangible.” It’s the sensation of the presence of something larger than oneself or at least other than oneself. Perhaps it’s in the searching, in the longing, and in the subtle feeling for the numinous that it’s true experience is felt.
