This is sort of a digression but it's fun so... I'm not aware of any mystic tradition which uses that word for that purpose. To my understanding, mana means bread, specifically, the kind of bread given to the Jews wandering the deserts to keep them alive during the exodus. If you know of a traditional use of the word as reference to spell energy I certainly would enjoy knowing about it, since I've driven my friends bonkers referring to all the mana cards in magic the gathering as "bread producing territories" and creatures as "bread nom nom nom."
