Final Survey [Nov. 28th, 2005|02:03 pm]
OTHERKINS!- What are you? Where did you come from?

Good afternoon or what have you.

It has been a while since I have posted here though I have enjoyed reading the various thoughtful and interesting posts that have been offered since.

First of all, thank you all for the responses I have received to date. I have spent months compiling and working through the information collected from my last surveys numbering nearly 400 responses. The amount of assistance has been overwhelming and I am incredibly happy to see such a high level of support.

I also apologize for the level of crossposting but I do wish to get as many of the livejournal communities as I may for there are individuals who belong to only one or another but do not have huge mass membership.

Following is the last survey that I will need for my work. The questions are slightly broader in scope and several will require some thought. There is reason behind each and every one. I have spent the last month and a bit fine tuning the survey and adding questions after conferring with a number of very wise people (both otherkin and human).

I have had some strong interest in the book from several publishers and I am currently looking into which will offer the best price to the buyer as well as the widest possible distribution.

You may answer the survey here OR you may email it directly to kinresearch@gmail.com if you wish to keep your answers private. Information is not shared beyond the core research unless you answer the "bonus" question.

An Introduction and Questions [Mar. 29th, 2005|01:55 pm]
OTHERKINS!- What are you? Where did you come from?
kinfo
Hello.
I am both otherkin and writer. I have been aware of my personal differences for many decades and struggled with my own changes during a time when spirituality was centered around the community church. I currently live in the french part of Canada doing piece work and holding contract based positions. My research and interaction with otherkin communities has been leading to the eventual publication of a book focusing on otherkin.

I have joined this and other communities in order to research and collect information for this book as well as for my own natural curiousity. I do tend to lurk and read more than get involved in discussion.

I would like to ask a few basic questions. Feel free to answer here or to email me directly at kinresearch@gmail.com

Note that by answering you are giving permission to use your response in publication.

Thank you for your assistance and participation.

1. What is your name [optional]
2. What part of the world do you live in [optional]
3. What type of otherkin do you identify as?
4. What is the basis of that identity? Where did it come from or what supports it? Feel free to be as lengthy or concise as you wish.
5. What would you like to see in a book about/for otherkin?

Any suggestions or feedback are always welcome. I can be reached at the above email or through this livejournal. Thank you very much for your response.

(This is very crossposted if you see it several times)

well I guess first I will intrduce myself. My name is Winter..and yes it is my real name. I've been going through websites and reading posts on Otherkin til my fingers cramp up and I have to stop. Since I "stumbled" upon all these posts about Otherkin here on live journal..I started doing the research..and it's been taking a lot out of me. I've been analizing all the things I do in my life..all the things I'm interested in..what I feel closest to..and how I react to certain things..here is my list of my "strangeness"....

DREAMS:
~flying but not very high
~very strong and able to protect myself from many things..especailly volcanoes.
~the ability to know what a person is thinking and/or feeling
~being able to swim very very well

REAL LIFE:
~very very strong connection with nature and feeling I don't belong with all this technology
~Being able to uncontrollably and randomly know what a person is thinking..though it's like I'm thinking it myself
~feeling as if I have the strenght to do anything
~having no fear of anyone or anything
~being able to know how a person is feeling and being able to cheer him or her up whenever I try
~this uncanny love of water and all marine animals
~This very very strong connection with animals..all of them..I've never met a wild or domestic animal that has attempted to attack me or walk away in fear of me
~being able to walk the path of Wicca..a nature based religion and feel as if I belong
~feeling as if parts of me are missing..such as wings or a tail fin
~feeling as if it's my destiny to protect nature


I knnow that I am a human form but not of human spirit. But I don't know what I am..I feel as if my spirit..(the real me)..is something that has magical powers..is able to fly and swim like it's part of everyday life..has powerful strenght..and more importantly my spirits "job" is to protect nature without any thoughts of my own life because I know I won't lose over whatever is trying to harm nature

I'm trying to manage a community in adition to my private livejournal. This is the first post in Otherkins Family. :-D You can call me Northlight. I'm the Moderator/ Manager of this community and I hope to do a decent job of running this place, LOL!! Be warned, I spell the sh*tz!!

My expectations of this community would be that this be a place where people go to teach themselves about other people's faiths, talk about their experiences searching and being Otherkin. Overall I wish this to be a place where people can just hang around :-)

As for myself- I've just discovered that I am Psi Vampire. Apparently I've been one for years and havn't noticed until, literally, this week!! That's what ya get for asking Dracula to help ya along in your Otherkin search **sighs** Oh well. I work a lot with what are concidered 'modern God Types'. Now what the heck is that, yer asking. The short definition is that a Modern God Type is not a 'GOD' per say, but a thought form or focus created by society (usually a pop culture icon, hero or individual) that people look towards for inspirtation, adventure, or what ever. They are ideals that people direct their mental energies towards. What I do is harness that energy. They say what you create and what you aknowledge is given life. From my experience, it's true! Ever since I learned that in my year and a day witchy classes, I've been hooked :-) I treat these Modern God Types as companions as they have have their own personalities and thoughts, but they are not Gods. I also work with diety, usually in the form of the ancient egyptian gods and, not until **very** recently, the modern god type/God of Dracula. Not Bram Stoker's Dracula, but the Vampire Hunter D Dracula, aka 'The Ancient Ancestor'.

Hop on in folks. I don't bite. Hard :-)
