Disclaimer: I’m an atheist and my fictional world is basically a copy of Earth, but without distinct fantasy elements like Lord of the Rings. I wanted to ask where the line between straight fantasy and spiritual/religious experiences is. Because I do not believe in gods or the supernatural, it’s very hard for me to see the line because events that are deemed to be miracles by certain traditions and the magical stuff that happens in fantasy novels. Spirituality and faith are important to my character, and I want her to experience very mild things that pop up in certain religions, but I’m not a fan of the fantasy genre and don’t want my story to have that feeling. Does anyone have suggestions to address this? I’m thinking if I steal things that are extremely close to a real faith, it will be more obvious. Thanks.
