what religion would youcall this

i was asked to label myself..and i cant.....i always said spiritualist. i believe in god/angels/archangels/satn/evil/good/demons/spirits...but i also believe in the power of energy in chi, in earth, willing things to happen, reiki healing etc. i do not believe satan is some evil grrr guy, i think that satn/god are two balances and everything in life has to be balanced..you have to have teh gray area and the white area...without the evil no balance, withotu the good no balance, now im not saying evil people are great....no just that sometimes darkness does have a purpose as much as we may all dislike it. i believe anyone can talk to god..angels..spirits...etc.....just a matter of opening up your heart....i believe our souls are seperate from our physical body and can astral etc.
i alawys say im a spiritualist....but i was asked to break that down further..i dont think i really can

  • A deist, maybe? Like, you KNOW for certain something is out there but you don't subscribe to any particular religion?

    I dunno, spiritualist works well too.

  • Why do you need a label? When someone asks, just let them know your basic fundamental beliefs and if they want more, then say...come over and sit down and I will explain it more or ask them to be more specific like asking you how you feel about X or X. You cant break it down unless you know specifically what they are wanting to know. As far as what you are....I really dont know. I am not well versed in labels, but I believe even some people who identify with the same faith as me, dont believe the exact same thing....so its kinda all in perspective.

  • That just gives you an idea, and it's nice that you can read the summaries and do further research if you want from there. I'm comfortably Catholic, but I thought it was interesting to see my results and to see the similarities in some religions I had never even heard of.

  • Yea the belief O matic is just a starting place IMO it gives anyone who wants a place to start a search for the name of what they already believe. You go with what you feel suits you.
