So i am an Otherkin, or so the term is. Im just looking for others who might be the same. How did u find out? what are you? do u carry traits (both physical and mental) from your soul? Do u think it comes from past lives or what? Got any mods to resemble you true self? what to u believe our condition is? 

 

My personal answers are, when i was about 13 i found out, i am a Satyr, i am freedom loving, nature loving, obsessed with animals, lover of music, and to be honest im not the most monogamous person in the world. I have no mods yet to resemble my true self, and i believe our condition is spiritual beings from a higher plane, or lower, that reincarnate like everything else and now we have human forms, but our soul memory of that higher plane is the most dominate. :)

Excellent topic.  I am a demon otherkin, though the term demon carries with it a lot of misconceptions.  Demons are not always or perhaps not even mostly evil nor are they in any way antithesis to good.  Demonkin are, in my experience, incredibly varied, probably one of the most varied groups of otherkin.  One of the few traits that seem to tie us together seems to be a tendency to go against the status quo, to push buttons and challenge things that are normally taken as acceptable. 

 

As for my own experience as a demonkin, I have known I was otherkin of some sort since I was 15 or 16 although I've only known for 3 or 4 years that I was demonkin.  Discovering it has been through a combination of meditation, internal questing, dream visions and a general feeling of "rightness". 

 

My demon traits include a general lack of emotionality.  For many years I felt almost no emotions at all what what little I did feel was muted, felt as if behind a barrior.  I feel more now days as I've come to better balance my human and demon selves, but still less than most people and I have, I believe, a complete inability to feel emotional anger.  It seems demons tend to come in two main varieties: those who feel far less emotions and those who feel far more, with very little in between.  I am fairly adept and intuitive when it comes to shielding and dreamwalking and am fairly strong in energy work.

 

I have an image of what I believe my true self to be and I am working towards achieving that image through the use of tattoos, piercings, implants and anything else I can think of.  For my outer self to reflect my inner self is important to me and thus I work to ensure that they become more in synch with one another.

Agreed, i think its one of the most important things we can do for ourselves to feel complete. Mods are a magnificent way to connect back to our roots, and it helps us look like ourselves and lets face it, waking up in the morning and seeing something that jjust isnt right kinda hurts the pride and self esteem. 

 

I believe the community of otherkin use the term "walking in out skin" lol

probably should have started with that XD, otherkin are people who feel as if their soul is something other than human. a few examples: i had the fortune to recently meet a woman who believed her soul was that of an otter, and other animals are common as well. Also there are Therians which is a group of otherkin who believe our souls are something either not from this plane, diminsion, or planet even. Such people are the modern day Vampyres, Demon-kin such as vampyremage, and satyrs such as myself :), if u have any other questions let me know :)

Well that depends on what part u want to study. The modern vampyre movement is quite large and has alot of decent books by people like Michelle Belanger, but if u wanted to study the others im afraid there isnt much. I suppose you could read books on shapeshifting in shamanic traditions, but the list is pretty short, that is unless someone has heard of anything else lol

That would be my favourite otherkin related forum.

http://forum.otherkinalliance.org/

A good introductory otherkin site.

http://otherkin.net/index.html

And the main site of the Otherkin Alliance forum.  That should be a good introduction for you.

http://www.otherkinalliance.org/


Posting actual clickable links didn't work for some reason so I edited and put in the non-clickable links.

When you guys stated otherkin, I did not know what that was. But, I do recognize Therian, I learned about it years ago, but had otherwise totally forgotten about it.
For a long time I felt akin to wolves and dogs. But I don't know how I feel about it anymore, I spent many years lost in a haze of all the shit I was in. And I'm lost on it now, I feel like I shouldn't claim myself as one, because now I don't even know that part of myself anymore.

Ignacious may i suggest recconnecting to that part of yourself, at the very least to see if it was something real, and with purpose. 9 times out of 10 the reason we feel connected to things is because they have some deep significance in one way or another. Simply put, throw your soul a bone XD (couldnt resist a dog related pun)

I have to agree with Parasiva.  My own awakening occurred in multiple steps and in a couple of instances in between those steps, I went through periods of time where I thought I had completely lost that part of myself.  Whether you are therion or not no one can say but yourself, but I think its a good idea to try and reconnect with that part of yourself and see what comes of it.  Whether you find that you are or aren't, I think any further knowledge one gains about oneself has got to be a good thing.

To be honest, as of late, all i feel connected to is Indi. Beyond that I feel oddly empty.I try to find myself, but I Come up blan. As if there were nothing there.

well im my view something must be there lol, people who are empty generally dont search for something inside themselves and usually cant connect with another person, much as you have done with Indi lol

True. Let me put it this way, everything's there as it should be, but the colors drained. The motion of atoms have it absolute zero. My ambition is out of gas. My creativity is that of the government. I'm seriously not trying to be a downer. I just don't know what it is, and its starting to get in the way of my.. everything spiritual and emotional about my being.

Interesting post and think you for posting the links, Vampyremage.

I will definitely be researching this more.

It's interesting to me. :)
