Standing With Another Soul

“We are strong when we stand with another soul. When we are with another, we cannot be broken.”

“…to say a person’s name is to make a wish or a blessing over them each time their name is called.”

“Afeared or not, it is an act of deepest love to allow oneself to be stirred by the wildish soul of another. In a world where humans are so afraid of ‘losing,’ there are far too many protective walls against being dissolved in the numinosity of another human soul.”

-Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves

It is an awareness of human nothingness when faced with a holy and powerful being
It comes from ‘numen’ = to bow the head
