I have 'Animist' in my path description, and was recently asked for a definition.  Which made me realize I don't really have one.  I grew up with it, and didn't even know it's name until some posts by Sunflower and Elizabette gave me the lightbulb clue.  I know what it is for me, and have communicated with and woken up various beings/things usually defined as 'other' but which to me are 'cousin'.

I would be interested in hearing from people who have actually given enough thought to it to verbalize their definitions.  I live it, but I don't think about it, if you know what I mean.  It's like breathing for me, and I can't describe that well enough to give a clue to someone (!) who doesn't do it themselves either.

Help!  I'm having a failure of articulation!

Blessed are the cracked, for it is they who let in the light.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
