This thesis explores the mystery and the power of the numinous in its capacity to transform one's life. A heuristic methodology is utilized to explore this phenomenon. The experience of these numinous and divine energies as revealed through nature, dreams, imagination, and the dark night of the soul are considered from both clinical and spiritual perspectives. Dynamics and theories drawn from Jungian psychology form the foundation for a partial elucidation of these ineffable energies in the world and are presented in the review of literature. Chapter III is the soul of the thesis, wherein exploration of the author's experiences of the numinous brings life and spirit to the concepts formerly introduced.
