Wednesday Word: Numinous

Numinous - adjective.

An interesting word that can span many meanings from a synonym for mysterious or supernatural but also describe the intangible quality of feelings such as duty and loyalty.

The ghost was numinous in physical form but it also possessed a numinous sense in its protection of the old house.
