Hi everyone! I’m a wheelchair rolling trans woman named Scarlett. Queer in this life, dealing with past ones. Old soul in a new world.
I identify as an elf/wolf hybrid. I am new here but i have always known what i am but i haven’t truly acknowledged it until last year. I hope to make life-long friendships and hopefully meet people that i can relate to! I hope everyone has had a grreat day!
For those who doesn’t use Discord, I associate myself with dragons and elves. I question myself if I am really an otherkin, but I recall a dream I had being a faerie.. so I made a conclusion that I am not human in spirit. Nice to meet you all!
Religion and the Sha
The Sha are a very spiritual people and hold a religion that draws heavy influence from their utilitarian natures.
A cornerstone of the Sha faith is that they make no attempt in espousing to have a superior or ‘the one true religion’ but that their are in-fact countless Gods and faiths that they recognize to be true, most of which they have no interest in worshiping as they only care for their gods who care for them. They believe all Gods who draw worship are on some level real and that many where actually created by their worshippers in a similar manner to which a ‘tulpa’ in Tibetan traditions draw its strength from belief.
The Sha believe there are essentially three types of gods.
1 The Creator. The god who is beyond existence and understanding and who has always been
2 True Gods. Gods willed into existence by the creator or born from other such gods. They don’t rely on thoughts or prayers to sustain their existence
3 Created Gods. gods created by thoughts, prayers, belief and worship. They can actually die if they are merely forgotten over time.
To the Sha the Gods themselves are believed to strengthen their existence through the minds of their followers and even their antagonists’ and skeptics’ thoughts of them. It is for this reason they believe it is important to measure their thoughts and emotions and adjust accordingly. (For example they attempt to never think of Judaea-Christian archetypes of devils or evil as they certainly do not wish to fuel the existence of such a being.) However, they believe no sentient life form is completely devoid of at least the occasional negative thought so they channel their lower thoughts into a belief in the “Shadow Elf” as a means of channeling the mystical energies of darker thoughts and beliefs into something that can have a positive outcome.
Their are four major Gods or Godlike entities in the Sha Panthion
- The Shadow Elf- a being created by the energy of the Sha
- Yngvi The god of the Sha among other things. They believe that he is a “True God” assigned custodianship of most Elves by a higher power(possibly the creator)
- “The Mother” the Sha goddess of nature and knowledge. She protects plant life and blesses the Sha with a special kinship with plant life an helps them commune with ancestor trees
- “The Creator” The god of gods and the supreme aspect of all creation.
The “Shadow Elf” is not an elf but a powerful godlike entity that resides in the collective conscience of all Sha and even all who know of the “shadow elf”. It is thought that when the negative thoughts, emotions and belief in this entity reaches critical mass it will possess and fuse with the soul of a young and vulnerable Sha who has strong negative emotions and thoughts. This results in a child who will grow to be an incredibly powerful elf capable of terrible destruction. It is for this reason that when the “Shadow Elf” manifests every member of the Sha make it their duty to guide the young demigod along a path of warmth and compassion, and redirect the child’s warlike nature into that of a protector because in much the same way an army can be used to conquer it can be also be used to protect and defend.
Due to the nature of how the “Shadow Elf” manifests into our realm by fusing with the soul of a host Sha, it is believed every “Shadow Elf” is not only a return of the previous “Shadow Elf” but also a reincarnation of several previous hosts. Previous hosts provide the benefit being the newest host’s “Jiminy Cricket” to help counteract the negative thoughts and urges caused by the “Shadow Elf” presence (yet another measure to help mitigate the risk of corruption. Previous hosts will remain attached to the spirit of the “Shadow Elf” for several incarnations until their souls having been freed of negativity naturally detach from the “Shadow Elf” and ascend or reincarnate.
However, the power of a “Shadow Elf” comes at a terrible price. Because life is a positive state of being, regardless of how it is spent, channeling the power of the “Shadow Elf” damages the life force of the host and channeling all of the “Shadow Elf’s” power means certain death to the host. The last “Shadow Elf “ was the legendary Last King and his death was the result of him channeling all of the dark energies within himself at once to protect his people. Since that time there have been no other “Shadow Elves” as there aren’t enough Sha left who know of the “Shadow Elf” for him to reach critical mass and manifest in a Sha in our realm.
Yngvi is the patron god of the Sha. His responsibility is to guide the souls of the Sha to other Sha. The Sha believe Yngvi helps the Sha find one another when they are lost. The Sha also believe that Yngvi help Sha souls find their way on the path of reincarnation and that he receives lost souls from “The Mother”
The Mother is a goddess of nature, knowledge and burial rites. She watches over the ancestor groves and will hold troubled souls to be collected by Yngvi. She blesses the transfer of knowledge from Sha corpses to ancestor trees. She blesses the Sha with the ability to commune with plant life and she blesses her most devoted followers the ability to access and join the collective consciousness of plant life in meditation. (These most devoted followers are often thought of as having become half plant half Sha.) It is debated among the Sha as to wether she is a “true god” or a “created god” but she is nonetheless revered by all Sha
The creator is unique in that the creator is accepted to be the singular being beyond understanding and presumption. Therefore the Sha offer this being the greatest reverence but make no attempts describing or understanding who this being is or what role said being plays aside from that it creates all things by force of will and the universe exists only because this being continues to will it.
The Sha believe in both reincarnation and transcendence.
It is believed that when a Sha dies the memories left in the body can be preserved in an ancestor tree.
An ancestor tree is a tree grown from the corpse of a Sha. Only descendants of the corpse that nourished the tree and OwmEw can “read” memories from an ancestor tree.
In the rare instances when a Sha soul fails to or chooses not to ascend or reincarnate they may become entangled in the tree growing from their corpse. Many choose this fate intentionally. When this occurs it is called “living with the Mother” because those in this state are one with the collective consciousness of all plant life and are also able to hear the voice of the mother directly. Sha souls entangled in this manner are also able to act as keepers of their perspective ancestor tree, allowing those who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to “read” their tree. They can even deny access to anyone they don’t wish “reading” their tree even if they are descendants or OwmEw
The OwmEw or Daughters of the Forest are the most devoted followers of “The Mother” The process of becoming OwmEw is a long and arduous process that requires much sacrifice. They first take an oath to never take the like of a plant and adopt a strictly carnivorous diet. They them pain stakingly pluck every hair from their body (Sha only grow hair on their heads and their pubic area) and plant special tiny vine seeds under their skin in place of their plucked hair. They then enter into a hibernative/meditative state and attempt to commune with the seeds germinating beneath their skin and guide the growth of each seeds roots. If they fail the roots will grow out of control and kill them. If they are successful their mind will become as one with the many vines grow from their bodies, they will gain the ability to communicate directly with the collective consciousness of plant life, receive secondhand guidance from the mother through plants, “read” ancestor trees, gain the ability to photosynthesize energy as plants do to supplant much of their carnivorous diet effectively becoming an elf-plant hybrid, and they will enjoy a position of respect and admiration from Sha society as spiritual leaders a wise women. However all of these benefits come at a cost. Over time their skin will begin to store chlorophyll causing their skin to turn green, they will become reliant upon sunlight to maintain their health, and perhaps most devastating they will loose the ability to bare children and may experience some minor alienation for not contributing to the delicate population.
the sounds of waves drifting across the stormy seas of my mind
the distant smell of saltwater mixing with the lakes frothing, teaming with iridescent cold blooded creatures
the feeling something is missing something stolen without a sign something, im sure as my own mind is mine, my skin feels like something other then what my heart in my mines eye sees,
stranded, the feeling of being stranded on the land in a world of strange customs and styles that seem alien and absurd in some way even as i seem to have grown up with them
feeling as if becoming what i do not see in the mirror will somehow make the hole in my chest disappear
twisting the movement of my ankles locking together as i swim… why do eyes stray to my direction as my body moves under the waves, why do my legs twist in a way that feels and seems impossible and at the same time instinctive and natural as soon as i touch the water
is my picture in my soul and in my heart of what i am when im under the sea just my imagination or is it something more… for i to have ….to be a creature of the lakes and seas… to play in the waves and dine on the scaled creatures that swim along side me and act as my playfellows playing endless games of chase… why is it i can almost feel no, i do feel a tail instead of these flimsy legs when the liquid envelopes me as i dive into the murky depths of a strangely comforting and familiar world
Unlike some of the members of the Otherkin community I have seen, I felt comfortable at first, when I was a child. I was born human, therefore I was human. Makes sense, right?
But then, I started watching Doctor Who. I didn’t connect with the character of the Doctor, but like him I was very interested in physics and had an extended knowledge of quantum mechanics, and I tended to see other humans as people who cared too much about their emotions and not enough about logic. I always had a great sense of protector, and I would do almost anything to protect my friends, or any humans in the street that is being harassed, attacked or just being lost.
But up to that point, it was just a cool resemblance between me and the Doctor. It was a cool thing. I became obsessed with the show, and at that point, something faint in my chest followed me around, begging to come out, as if a spiritual second heart was faintly beating, calling to its people.
But everything changed when I saw the first episode featuring the Time Lord society. I saw them and immediately felt a connection to them. They weren’t the Doctor’s people. They were my people. And not only did I feel this Gallifreyan patriotism, I also felt angry at them. Gallifrey was ruled by a bunch of incompetent, lying, manipulative old men in funny hats that only seek to make profit off of their starving people. I felt like I needed to protect the oppressed people, my people, stuck in the deserts of Gallifrey.
Even though my body is human, my mind is 100% Time Lord. I’ve always been attracted by advanced physics and the possibility of time travel, and as I read more about the History of Gallifrey, I felt that was way more relevant than the idiotic things we learn in History class.
As of right now, I never expressed my true self to anyone. Time Lords are used to blend in with humans, and I’m a pretty good actor. But my second heart was pounding, pleading and begging for me to tell someone about who I really am. I am 16 now, twice the age of maturity of a Time Lord, and I don’t have any mature Time Lords to get me through my ceremony, so I will have to do it myself. I sadly cannot look through the time vortex to test my dedication, but the concept of time itself has made me scared and curious all my life, and so as a replacement and to prove my worthiness I will accept the inevitability of time (especially without a TARDIS or any regenerations) and therefore face time itself. I shall therefore claim the surname of Commander and, since no one can assign me, I will assign myself to the Prydonian Chapter, that of leadership, quick decision making and extrovertedness.
I’ve never even explored the concept of Otherkin before that point, and I still had a strong prejudice against you guys until I did some research and realised I was part of the community. Hopefully you can all welcome me to this wonderful community!
(As a side note, these Time Lord robes are really cool, I just might purchase some to wear)
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.
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.
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?
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.
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 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! ❤️
Hey, how goes it?
I’m lonely, folks.
How do you do it?
I’m new to this site and am hoping to get to know some people who I can relate with. I want to be able to talk to people who understand (or are trying to understand) themselves and can help me accept this reality I’ve come to love and fear for years.
Just thought I’d give this a go. Really shy, especially after realizing I’m not normal. Would love to chat with nearby people and maybe meet up.
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.
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.
hello it’s true that some fictionkin thinking humans are inferior
Hello, my name is Matt and my handle years ago used to be JediMatt1000. I am looking for a former member and I was wondering if anyone might be able to contact him for me or tell him to contact me. His name is Erelin Goodfellow. My e-mail is JediMatt1000@yahoo.com thank you!
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!
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 !
Do y’all ever just try flapping your wings or moving a tail or something then remember
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.
ok so idk what i am and ..im just wierd… i swim wierd …. funny things happen when i sing.. i get wierd dreams… i get hyper when the suns down and i get a longing for blood…. also i have wird fang-like teeth….. please help!… i mean i feel more…. fish? but i have physical …. non human abilitys ig… hard to exsplain….please help
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?
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.
I just recently accepted that I’m otherkin but I don’t want to tell anyone close to me since I’ll look like an idiot to them…I was scared to even accept that I’ve felt like another being most of my life til now. so uh, hi
Hi! I figured out a way for you guys to contact me. Im on kik: AngelProperty
Im a combo of water nymph and witch and other things too, not sure what all i am yet tho. Pm me on kik 🙂
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.
