Do you have any problems reconciling your Christianity with your Otherkinism?
For the longest time, I denied my Otherkin self under the pretext that there was no way it could go with Christianity. But now that I've discovered more about myself, no, I don't have any problems at all with it. I do not consider my other forms to be separate 'spirits' or whatever that are residing withing me.
Was that the only way it twitched your Christianity? Most "Christians" would have a lot of trouble with anything that smacked of magic of any sort. A holdover from the OT.

Modern liberal Christianity would probably include Otherkin in the fold, but they disregard so much of what so many consider fundamentals of the faith anyway...

What branch of Christianity are you part of? What type of Otherkin are you? What place(s) do your Otherkin parts take in the Christian passion? How does your shapeshifting work?

I'm full of questions. Sorry.
Yeah, I was having trouble because so many 'kin say they've had past lives, something I don't belive in.

I'm a United Methodist...but often people think I'm Catholic XD. I've had about three people ask me if I'm Jewish, for reasons I still don't know o_O. I'm a shapeshifter 'kin; I don't have one 'dominant' form, but I tend to shift/slide between them.

I just feel that God made me with...something different inside. And for a reason. I feel I'm Otherkin for a reason. Like...it puts me in a place where I can do a lot. Or something. I'm still figuring that out :}.

Okay...I myself am sitll trying ot figure out how my shapeshifting works XD. Like...I have seven distinct forms. Dragon, griffin, dinosaur, spiritual...thing, cheetah, wolf, and horse. Usually I tend to slide between the spiritual beastie (which is a whole different discussion altogether), the griffin, and the horse. Today, though, I've felt...canine-ish. I don't really have any control over what form surfaces when. Sometimes they even overlap, as my horse and cheetah often do.

Each form is...it's like looking at me reflected in a different mirror. They're each me. But...in the world of their own 'mirror', if that makes any sense. They are not separate spirits, as I mentioned before...just...me.
But God didn't create you, he created Adam and Eve. And then the serpent tempted them to fall and they were expelled from the garden and that's where we got Vampires from (Cainites).

If God created you now, you'd be a miracle, a messiah, like Jesus. Are you supposed to teach us about our Otherselves like Jesus taught us about Love? That would be awesome, but it would be a big burden.

Maybe you should think about taking speech and drama because you might need to preach one day!
vampires=Cainites? oh I've never heard that one :} I'll have to look into it.

I feel God had a plan for everyone waaaaaay back when, but then it is put together the day each of us is born. eh...this is arather complicated thought thing you're going into here lol. So...um...yes, God created me :}. And we're all miracles. Imagine how much could have gone wrong during the time you were in your mother's womb, and yet, here you are. *nods*

I am no Messiah, no. And yeah, teaching others about Otherselves would be a huge burden. I don't think that's what I'm supposed to do, but you never know *shrug*.

Heh I did take acting for quite a long time, and some speech classes, but I don't think I could go into preaching ^^;. I'm heading into paleontology and stuff yay! :D
I've never been able to accept the idea that God causes everything to happen a certain way. If that is true then we lose free will and we have to accept a sadist who causes birth defects and terrorism and bad ahir days.

What are your thoughts on so many of the Otherkin who claim angel or demon Otherselves?
Oh, I don't believe God causes everything to happen. I believe He has destinies for us, but it is up to us to get there. And He will still do great things even if you deviate from His plan, but it will not be as great as if you had followed His plan to begin with.

Actually...My spiritual-being form is a half-demon, half-human that I label as a 'nephilim' for lack of better terms (for the same reason I call her a half-demon: I can't find a better term for a dragon-like spiritual being). She is a spiritual being very closely connected to God. I am not claiming to actually be a demon, nor am I claiming to be one of God's angels. This is simply my spiritual side, or 'mirror'.

Now...I do take issue with people who claim to be actual angels. Half-angels, I can understand better, but...I dunno. I have an issue with 'angels'. Demons, I take issue with as well. I feel (and this is just my personal opinion) that a true demon keeps itself hidden, and takes over people while trying to make the person (and everyone around) that it isn't a demon. I feel that they don't go around announcing themselves...because to me, that's not the way eivl works.
Now, I can understand if someone has a form that's some wierd beastie that they can't label, and they feel aligned to darkness or evil. I can understand calling that a 'demon'. That's the same reason I call my nephilim-self a nephilim: she is half human and aligned with God.
I don't understand how you can say that God created you (think of how many things could go wrong...), but that he doesn't cause everything to happen. Are you being vague to tease me?

Genesis is pretty explicit though, and the Flood was to destroy the nephilim and the wicked men they were breeding with. Are you sure your spiritual form isn't a fallen angel?
I didn't think I was being vague, and I'm certainly not trying to tease anyone.
Yes, God creates everything, but He doesn't cause everything to happen. He gave us free will. He /wants/ us to do certain things, but He won't make us do it. He gave us free will, and He's not just going to revoke it just like that.

I call her a nephilim because, to my knowledge, nephilim were half angel, half human (at least in some belief circles). I couldn't find something that meant 'half demon, half human', so I just call her a nephilim. I /am NOT/ saying that I AM a nephilim, I simply use that word to help people understand, to give myself something to call that side of myself.

She is not a fallen angel.

I meant to ask why you don't believe in past lives when so many of the Otherkin do. Does that certainty come from Christianity? I know I've always heard it preached that we only live one life, but I've never read very much about it being so in the Bible.
Partially from Christianity, yes, and partially from just my own personal beliefs that we have one shot at life. :}
Coolness! I can respect standing by your beliefs.

Have you ever looked into some of the stories about, say, the Dalai Lama? Or about kids with "old souls" who could tell stories about "When I was an old man...?"

It's pretty fascinating. I myself don't believe in reincarnation, but I did tell those stories before I was school age. I could tell people what I was wearing, what I looked like, what type of car I drove, etc. All before I was five. If it wasn't reincarnation it was something.

Maybe I'm Otherkin and my Other is human! X}
*shrug* Well, I just saw a news story today about a girl in Russia who might actually have x-ray vision, so who knows what's possible?

"Maybe I'm Otherkin and my Other is human! X}"
lol! Well, seeing as how my 'nephilim' form is half-human, I don't see why a human Other would be impossible :}.
I actually did some work with a fellow in a shamanic tradition once and he kept swearing that my totem animal had to be human.

I never gave it much thought, but I am a "fan of man," as the Devil's Advocate says. My faith is that we have in us all that is needed to aspire to grace and we must do so or die trying. We will never reach grace (that's what God's dispensation is for), but we must make the honest attempt or be judged unworthy in the end.
