A Spiritual-whatever Exploration Manifesto

And I figured, bonus points, if I lay it out here, maybe I’ll get even more tailored feedback and keywords and suggestions. Shouldn’t hurt.

spirituality etc words

because oh right, i can ask y’all for input, sweet.

saw the phrase “atheist witch” for the first time today and it feels closer’n aught else so far. got me thinking again:

what would the word be, for someone who disbelieves in any kind of sentient god/s, but does believe in unconscious energies?

sure i’m a- -theist, but…uh…i believe in magical glue, and affecting the splitting of timelines. noooooot sciencey.

“spiritual” is abominably vague and has never conveyed what i’ve wanted. it’s too agnostic. i am definitely not agnostic.

and new age is so sharply derided without even the protection of Qualifying As Religion, plus it has particular tenets, sort of.

is there another word, not -theist but, i dunno, for not-god-but-still-supernatural? geez idk. “atheist witch” really is closer than anything else so far.
