    Otherkin?

    There's no way to be 100% certain of ANYTHING in life. You simply have to go with how you feel. If you aren't sure...perhaps meditating on it, or doing research on things fae, may help you focus in on your feelings.

    Views of Afterlife.

    My view is: I don't know. :) I do have what seem to be past-life memories, so I lean in favor of reincarnation, but precisely how all of that works? Not a clue. Guess I'll find out eventually.

    Past Lives

    I have some very vivid past-life memories of being a wolf. As for the past-life regression therapy not turning up animal past-lives, I can answer that as well. A person in a state of hypnosis is generally very eager to please. If you tell them to regress back to a certain time, they try their...

    Otherkin?

    When I was younger, I would have said yes without any hesitation, probably amending it with "get me out of this human hell NOW!" <lol> Now, I don't know. There are advantages to being human--not the least of which is proper medical care, and quite a bit of security and comfort. It's...

    Otherkin?

    You mean the earliest? I really don't remember, to be honest with you. I can point to therian traits I had as early as kindergarten, but I couldn't tell you when I began to actually notice them and think about it. The first diary entry I ever made, around age 9 or 10, mentions it. Most of...

    A question of faith....or not.

    You may be right on the mark there, Brian...it's not at all impossible that's what I'm feeling I'm missing out on. I can get together with psi friends, but it doesn't seem to be the same. Perhaps there is something hardwired in the psyche that craves group rituals, regardless of their purpose...

    Otherkin?

    It's hard to say...being otherkin is more than a fascination with a certain type of animal or being. You ARE that being inside. Do you see yourself as a wolf wearing "human clothes"? Do you wish you had your own four legs and tail back? :) In some cases, a person's inner animal isn't...

    A question of faith....or not.

    Well, I was speaking of all religions, not just one in particular. My outlook on deities is that there isn't one all-encompassing overbeing...I just can't accept that there's a man behind the curtain, as it were. <g> I think that deities are all individual entities of great power, but not...

    A question of faith....or not.

    Certainly...but am I depriving my children of the opportunity to grow up with what I believe would be the beneficial experiences of seasonal rituals, simply because I personally have lost trust in the purpose of religion? In fact, am I rejecting religion due to something that I should seek to...

    A question of faith....or not.

    Not sure that there's any particular best place for a post such as this, but I was wondering if anyone had any opinions: Years ago, I practiced eclectic paganism (a lot of elements of Wicca, a few other tidbits), and I was very happy with it. Then I began studying psionics, and I guess I...

    Otherkin?

    I think there are a few who may engage in intimidation via 'being freaky', but I expect that's more an action based in resentment of rejection...it's frowned on in the 'kin community. I'd compare it to the sort of thing Aleister Crowley used to do...

    Otherkin?

    This thread might help shed a bit more light on the issue: http://www.werelist.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=2651 Ironically, it's talking about that very idea. ;) It doesn't seem people find it too terribly likely, though. Personally, I favor the notion that therianthropy...

    Otherkin?

    I won't discount what you're saying, but I will say that most Otherkin spend a lot of time learning to accept what they are. That's an important lesson for anyone, of course. But it doesn't seem in keeping with a desire to become something else. Of course, the vast majority of 'kin desire...

    Otherkin?

    Yes, and I had this long, detailed post typed out, and hit "submit", and it went bye bye... <lol> Anyhow, I figured the thread could use an insider opinion. In truth, being otherkin's more like being transsexual than it is a form of spirituality. Transsexuals feel that their body is the...

    Otherkin?

    No, it is not fantasy or roleplaying--it is deeply felt, and quite sincere. I'll do my best to explain further tomorrow, provided I don't get another message telling me this is an invalid thread. <lol>
