Daughter of Diversity

So…this might take a bit of explaining. My name is Ami and Ami is the name my parents gave me; just not my biological parents.

Just for make things clear from the beginning, I’m also a trans girl as well, although I feel the two are only related by coincidence.

So, I’ve known I was different, ever since as far as I can remember. My entire life up to 2015 has been figuring out who I am, and that journey still isn’t over, even if I do feel I’m aware of all the most important things. I know, based on what I say, you may feel I’m also deitykin but I don’t feel that. As a teenager, I recognised I didn’t feel human; at least, not in a way I could relate to others. But I have always had an almost obsessive love of water. Films that featured water in any kind of important context were very gripping for me. It would have to be more than just an athlete splashing their face after a long run but I especially found myself drawn to water wizards and water elemental life and gods of water and anything else of that nature. Inversely though, while I did appreciate films involving seas and oceans, it wasn’t the same. I more appreciated them from a distance. I kind of feel I was lucky in that I’ve always been a bit on the creative side and, over time, as I’ve grown to be more accepting of myself, I’ve increasingly incorporated my search for myself into what I write, especially with Naiads, fresh water nymphs. I was especially fascinated to find that, even if by different names, there were myths about them from all over the world in every continent. But even the myths didn’t feel, precise; very close but…not right. And so I used my writing to explore them more and more and, in time I managed to describe, generally, how I felt about myself, except I didn’t feel it personally. I felt it in the sense of, these are my people. It’d be wrong to say I’ve rewritten the mythologies. For me it’s more the mythologies were written by humans and aren’t really all that reliable. You’d still easily recognise the naiads as I see them but, I feel I filled in the holes and corrected the biases. But I still didn’t feel it explained me fully and that’s where…religion…came into it. I came into the pagan umbrella as an independent in 2006 and I’ve always felt drawn to Iris and Arke above all others, although I consider myself very omnitheistic. But my heart told me that while they were referred to as gods of the rainbow, the rainbow was just the visual part of the spectrum that represented their true responsibility; diversity. Iris was felt to be the chief god of diversity and Arke was her second but…I felt more drawn to Arke than to her sister. In time, with myths being very vague, and in some cases, disagreeing with each other, about their origins, my own heart filled in the blanks and made the compromises again. And then one day, I can’t explain this bit even to myself but I came to feel that Arke was one of three mothers; all wed to each other. I also felt that somewhere out there, I have two human siblings, a brother and a sister. However, while all three of my parents were gods, Eris and another god from another pantheon, my siblings and I aren’t. I feel that we were conceived in Tartarus and due to the nature of our relationship, we had to be born together. And they wouldn’t allow Arke a temporary release for it. Because of that, we were born in Tartarus. My feeling is that you can’t be a dead god and you can’t be born living in the Underworld. We were raised by our grandparents, Elektra and her first husband in the Underworld but every spirit should experience life at some point and so we did. I was born as though I was human and I’ve been raised as though I was. But I never have been. While my siblings took our other two parents’ species, I took Arke’s.

My biggest shame though is my fear. Ever since I hit 20 in 1997, I’ve been happy and willing to accept who I am, as and when that awareness came to me but, after a one time coming out about being otherkin to my care coordinator in Luton and seeing his reaction as well as the reaction of the rest of the team when he told them, and there was also another case in a very small trans community I was part of which had an equally bad reaction, I’ve always kept my awareness to myself and to my novels.

Anyway, that’s my story. That’s me.

Oh. If I can add one thing to this. I don’t feel being the daughter of a god makes me special. I believe being me makes me that as it does everyone. Besides, I’ve never considered gods to be rulers of the universe so much as its servants; its carers.

New and hoping not to be judged

Hi, I’m new and really actually very nervous about this because I have only talked about it with a few people. Some of whom have thought I was crazy, others, not so much.

I feel like I am or was or…something. Anyway, for the sake of getting through this, I’ll use present tense. I feel as if I am the embodiment of fate. I know that even among otherkin, that may sound crazy. But I thought I might get some opinions as to if that’s even possible or if I really may just be crazy. But I have felt very alone. For most all of my life. It’s hard to be the only one to feel not human, in those around me. So if anyone is interested in talking or friendship, I’m also interested in that as well.

Dark Elves in the style of Liryen

A question that has occasionally come up in the community is, what is a Dark Elf? Or, more specifically, what is it that I mean when I use that term.

In my personal opinion, there are many kinds of elves who could be called dark elven. Some people might use this to describe Drow or Draestari, although I would not personally consider them one and the same. I am also not referring to the Norse Svartalfar, although certainly these could also be called dark.

To me, a dark elf is not really “dark” due to their physical coloring. They are not necessarily dark-skinned, although they may be frequently dark-haired.

If a “light elf” is comparable to a ray of sunlight shining through leaves, or a star in the sky, a dark elf is the velvet night surrounding the star.

In the dark, there are many mysterious things, and dark elves are also a little bit mysterious. They are ordinary elves, but their magic is secret yet from their brothers of the light, and they are fiercely protective of it.

Some people think that dark elves are evil or cruel, and this is not the case. They are just perhaps better acquainted with some of the darker emotions and elements of life.

They have much to teach us.

Introduction

Hello! My name is Stuart, or Blue, whichever is easier. I am a fallen angel and also 2D from Gorillaz. I also happen to be a system. I discovered my otherkinity (is that a word) back in 2018 during a meditation session. I saw an image of an eye opening and then a bunch of 2D memories. How did you find out about it? I’d love to hear. Also, any other angels here?

New and a bit lost

So, I hope I’m doing this right. But I’m a newbie here that identifies as a Faerykin.
I started to have a hunch as to my potential when I was around 12 or 13. I can’t exactly remember the day or time of my “awakening”. Around that time though I began to see things in nature more intuitively. I would always say that I viewed the world through the artist’s eye because of how I would appreciate the very fine details in nature that others take for granted or just don’t plain care to see. Every vein on a leaf, every speckle of shine on a rock, the character of each twig and how they bend. I felt a sense of magic and wonder in the breezy air.
Ever since I was a kid I wish I could fly through the sky, and would love staring up at the clouds letting them carry my thoughts with them. And because of my deep intuition of the earth, I do my best to care for the environment. I love fantasy and often wish I could escape from the human world to be carefree and enjoy life. Dragonflies were another indicator for me. Ever since I was little I liked dragonflies (and about two years ago I realized they were my totem animal/totem guide/spirit animal (whatever you want to call it). I’ve had various of animals that I liked growing up, but dragonflies recently came back into my life. And I read that in some folktales that dragonflies are faery steeds or that if you followed a dragonfly it would lead you to faeries. And a few times there would be dragonflies that would zip right at me or over my head. Which I found to be quite fascinating and peculiar.
When I was around 14 I realized that my shoulder blades were more sensitive than the rest of me, which only strengthened my inner intuition of my self being more than human. So I think that may have been the final switch that got turned on and discover that my spirit is of faerykind.
When I first met my boyfriend of 9 years now, I was worried that my conjecture may scare him off, make him think I’m crazy. But thankfully he wasn’t, and he even accepted that part of me even going as far as brushing my shoulder blades in affection or whenever I feel the change in season approaching or gush about nature he would chuckle and say “That’s my faery girl.”

But now that I’ve come to terms with who I am, there are still some things I want to learn. Like, do faeries have certain elemental affinities? Though I talk about the earth and nature a lot I find that it’s water and air more specifically that I’m drawn to. And do faeries really have wings or are they more like projections of energy/aura? How would I be able to tell what mine look like? Since dragonflies have always been fascinating to me I always pictured having a set of wings like theirs.

We all float down here

Soooo ladies and gentle beings of all shapes and sizes it has come to my attention that as well as being a pedantic prick I’ve also got more entities inside me than i know what to do with. Our names are Nix, Flave, Valarion, Word and “click” although you pronounce the last with just the action… Howdy

I’ve come to this online forum looking for people who live in Canberra (kinda lonely without faces) and people who have the ability to sniff out what on earth i am (lowkey no frick fracking idea). My “condition” is drawing me through circles all around the place and I’ve found myself at more than my fair share of dead ends lately. As for kinship? Nix is the creative arty type,Val is like a giant blackhole of pyschic energy, Flave is the attacker and defender of us all and “click” is the embodiment of my understanding of magic. Word is a scholar and talker.

Any questions please fire away 😀 im just lookin for a friend… or 6.

I’m new and I’m scared

Um… Hello.

I am a fictionkin like many users here, however I’m different, even among this community.

I Googled it, and it seems I’m the only one on the Internet who identifies this way, so I guess I should feel special?

But I’m really scared to come out to anyone, so I thought I could do this anonymously on this website so I could cope with myself. Advice is appreciated, but so is just tolerance. I don’t know what to expect.

I identify as a Pokémon. Specifically, an Absol. I don’t remember when I started feeling this way, but it was after I discovered that Reshiram is my spirit animal. I started finding all sorts of correlations between me and these two Pokémon. It has caused mixed feelings for me, but I accept myself as an Absol now. I have a Timid Nature (I like Sweet foods and hate Spicy foods).

I’ve had visions of my past life as an Absol, where I fell into a Genesis Portal and was reborn in a human body here, like Pokémon Mystery Dungeon in reverse. I want to go back home to the Pokémon world, but at the same time I kind of like opposable thumbs.

Please let me know if there are other Pokémon on this site, or if I’m insane and should keep to myself. Thank you and nice to meet you in advance! ❤️

so im new here

hello my names tyler and i’m pretty new here…as in i just signed up about 10 minuets ago. I’ve been having some troubles recently just struggling with coming to terms with otherkin and stuff. Ive had dreams but they always leave me more confused and meditation is almost impossible because of my ADHD. Ive experienced phantom limbs before but i just wanted to ask for some tips and more help on here. 

Anything will help, Thank you. 

Phantom Limbs

So I’ve been having these feelings, often enough now of limbs, wings, tail, muzzle, talons. Anywhere else I’d seem insane… But that’s how it is and I hope that here I can say that. I can feel the way they’ll twitch at times to stimulation, the feeling of how my snout picks up more scents than a human nose ever could. I truly, deeply and utterly want the body and scales that plague me non stop, I just want somewhere to speak myself, open up and showcase just what I know I am.

Greetings!

Hey there everyone, I am kind of new here. I am a Demon type of Otherkin. I am sorry that I have not updated everyone in quite a while when I first tried to set up an account. I was very busy with my physical human life. I am known by many names, Chaos Bringer being my true name. If you want to know more, please ask or message me! My email address is public, I believe. Hope you have a great day!

New, unsure, hello!

I am 100 percent new to even the idea of this. Someone mentioned to me to check out this community because I’ve always felt out of sync with people. Also and this may sound really bad but don’t take it that way I’ve always said in my head exactly like this that I feel “above” Humans like that and never really though of the ramifications of that ,as if saying I’m not Human again don’t take it wrong. Anyway just exploring possibilities and im ridiculously open minded so hello and I hope to meet some of you at some point !

Looking For Those Willing To Help

Hey everybody,

So I’m a practicing witch of almost 13 years, started pretty young. Well anyways one of my I guess “gifts” that’s not even the right word, better worded I excel in helping others find their past lives, and learning to travel through their own door with control. Well anyways one of the things I’ve been working on to help my practice is how our birth, blood type (and other aspects but I don’t wan to go into much detail)  have pattern behavior in our past life, just a theory of course but the only problem is I don’t have resources to otherkin and part of my theory has a lot to do with that. I would love to meet those willing to help and give some details into their otherkinness. These things would include and are not limited to behavior, abilities, birth chart (I’ll do the hard work with it), and so on. If you have made it this far high five! If anyone would be interested in helping me out I would love that. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and consider doing so.

Hello?

Alright, so I’ve never really given otherkin much thought, but recently, I’ve felt “wings” of some sort even though they aren’t there. When I think about the “wings” moving, I can feel them go through the air. I can also feel people walking “through” them, and when I think of them wrapping around me, it’s like I’m enveloped in a billowing warmth that I can’t explain. So, last thing, whenever I feel a breeze, the only thing I want to do is start flying, and I can’t explain it, like an instinct that has been lost over millennia. Does anyone know anything that might help?

Seeking Like-Minded Others

Hi Everyone,

I’m new to this, so I’m not sure what, exactly, I am. I only know that I am different from most others I meet and do not feel like Earth is my home. I’m well educated in science, so feeling this way contradicts most of what I’ve studied. I’ve felt this way for a while but always tried to rationalize or dismiss it. However, I recently had a spiritual awakening, and as a result, I can no longer ignore my feelings.

I would love to chat with like-minded others, so long as you don’t mind my undefined typology.

 

Seeking others

Greetings everyone, I just wanted to say thank you for all who are reading and gathering on this site to talk with fellow kin. I have known I was kin since a every young age, but have never came out to the public, as it would put my life in danger, as well to affect the relationship with the ones I have closest to me. Do to this matter, I have finally decided to talk to people in the kin community online, and possibly gain some knowledge. As I continue my journey in this, I am having trouble finding others like me and communicating with them. I live in the state of Louisiana, where there are (that I know of) no one in the kin community (or even therians for that matter) that live near me. As individuals who have been in contact with different kin types more than I have, I would ask for some possible guidance. Just some questions I have on my mind that would help me sleep better at night if I knew the answers, or possible probability. Thank you once again for reading over this post and I hope the ones reading this have a wonderful season.

Hello

  • Hello everyone. In this life my name is Jacob. I’m a hybrid of human & dragon. In my past life I was a pure dragon named Zorin where I had a wife & three kids. While I was Zorin the world was divided into humans & dragons. I was one of the few who tried to unite the 2 races. However, I died before I was able to see that happen & now I’m a hybrid. I can feel my wings, tail, & horns even though they’re gone. I’m just trying to find people like me.

Seeking a soulmate

Hi 🙂 in this life my name is Alyssa, but my spirits name is Saphira (not Sapphira), and im a nymph-witch hybrid. I feel most at home when swimming or floating in the water, i love wildlife and they love me. Im not sure what kind of nymph i am, as i have traits of a water nymph and a storm nymph (i think thats what its called??), i know far more about my witch lineage. Originally im a nymph (in case i havent said that enough yet 😂) and about 100 years ago i started being born into this lineage of witches. My lineage is of healers. My grams could heal plants and restore the recently deceased plants, my mother (in this life) has a healing touch (passive), and i work with auras. Also im new to this site so idk how pm’s or anything work. Msg me tho if you’re interested 🙂 oh and also, im pansexual.

Hearth welcome

A hearth for those of mythic heart
Fae-born, Elf-souled, from Otherworld,

Chimaeric beasts of eld,
Shifting folk of fur and tail,
Spirits of the living Green,
Of shadows or celestial light,
Tribe of Danu, Aes Sidhe–

Oft times unseen, sometimes ill used,
Who know they are of Other kind;
And for such friends as they may choose–

In sparkling light of Under-Hill
And peace beneath the stars be found
For those who enter with good will.

Shine forth the ancient Dreaming of the Earth!
Be lit the hearth!
