My theories and thoughts on otherkin  
Ok... I'll admit it... I've been on and off again accepting/skeptical/wtf about the otherkin stuff in spite of dreaming/seeing wings on me and having some people see them too.

But everything I read rings so many damned bells with me that I seriously can't deny it. And all of the stuff points to something very interesting.

You know how people are magicians, they practice magick? Ok. I think that otherkin ARE magick. I think that their very existence, something in how they came to be born here is magickal. And those who have had "awakenings" basically flipped that switch, opened the damned fobwatch (woo-hoo Doctor Who ref FTW!! ^_^), and "let 'er rip".

So of course psychic shit comes naturally to them, happens to them, and stuffs. Couldn't tell ya about the other manifestations--other than I think we all sorta are tapped into something which resonates with our magickal natures on that level. I think that natural healers, lightworkers, et cetera of COURSE will be angelkin. That makes just too much sense. Angels are messengers/helpers of the divine, right?

My dad once told me he's part fae. I suspect that part of this is genetic or can be genetic. I couldn't say it's ENTIRELY genetic. I mean, I know people who consider themselves to be otherkin but their parents are (omgs please shoot me for using this term but I dunno how else to put it) "muggles".

This whole debate about whether or not otherkin are just people "trying to be special" sorta reminds me of the argument in some places on practicing magick or being mystics. Not all of us walk the same paths everyone else does, and I don't consider any of it good or bad or different or better or worse than anyone else. I think that everyone needs to follow their own True Will--provided that they are responsible in how they do so and that others are free to do the same.

I think that in time... maybe... perhaps... enough of us will evolve to the point where this sorta thing will be more commonplace. I'd truly love to think so. At the very least, I believe that if enough people believe that, it can happen. I think that to do otherwise is to cave in to the Nothing of the Neverending Story, doomed to be swallowed forever in lies and denials of the self.

You have a very interesting point here. I'm still in a bit of a struggle with myself, to be honest. I'm not sure I'm ready to accept what I am, whatever that may be. Consider yourself lucky that you even have past memories (LOL). I'm not so lucky. As I stated before on once_winged, my wings (when I can see/feel them) also shift between white and black, but it doesn't seem to be related to mood. But anyway, forgive me for rambling, the idea that Otherkin have flipped some sort of switch in their consciousness is a thought that's crossed my mind before.

Mine doesn't seem to be related to mood, either--it's only appeared to be random so far cause I can't find a connection.

I have found autonomic writing to be paramount in finding more out about myself (past, present and future)

it has become my own personal ouija board to my soul

handy since I my conscious mind is so skeptical about so much

Re: my $0.02
I've had dreams of doing that. It's all fine and dandy when there's that comforting filter that things are passing through.

At some point though, it's like a switch has been flicked and I've lost any filter and/or control I've had, and Something has come through. It's a pretty freaky feeling and if I freak out enough I lose the message. And it could be something as harmless as "Remember to brush you teeth day" but oh, it won't matter. ~_~

I'm desperately trying to work on this!
