I think a numinous experience is "feeling a sense of awe and wonder" (can't remember who said that -_____-) whereas mystics often induce their experience, or they happen at a time of dire sickness.... eg The Gnostics! I think mystical experiences often come with knowledge too (so they're noetic) but I'm not sure, I hate Religious Experiences so don't quote me on it
