Words have power and as far as im concerned it may as well now just be called 'sham'~anism !
At heart and in everything i have ever done i view everything through the perceptual lens of 'Animism'.
So from now on i will be using the word Animist to describe the various types of spirit - works that i perform.
It also fits in descriptively perfect in reference to the folk ~magical, espiritista and Orisha work that i do.
Mucho blessings to you all and may your journey be guided by the good spirits.
