  2. Once a month I have all my friends come down into the city to play games at me and my girlfriend's place. We're all videogamers to varying degrees, but we use to meet up to play Magic: the Gathering. Though a few of them are still really into it, we don't play much Magic anymore. These days it's a wide variety of boardgames, with a game like Magic getting a single round of 'commander' just as we'd play at least one round of anything else. The reason for the switch has been the realizing at just how much there is now in the sort of 'renaissance' the boardgame industry has experienced. There's such a variety of games, with all sorts of new stuff combined with a rediscovery of classics. Even Magic is experiencing it's highest popularity yet with a new online version called Arena. Anyone else playing boardgames with friends? Any other magic or yu-gi-oh players? Anyone tried Keyforge? (he asks hopefully)
  3. I've always loved mythology and magic, I feel these are the most tangible parts of our abstract ideas. Growing up strictly atheistic, I had always been interested in finding evidence for supernatural occurrences and had a phase in my late teens and early twenties where I got into magic because I thought it might hold the answers. I tried had all the usual magical trappings, but the ones I thought had the best evidence were divination (you could predict events as an experiment) and mirror gazing (I really could see something in a mirror that had no reflection). Over time I would read about the brains ability to misinterpret visual information in the dark or on a reflective surface, I would similarly be convinced against divination through statistics and bias (we remember the hits and forget the misses). I would subsequently meet people who held spiritual or new age beliefs similar to the ones I use to have, only to now be trying to get them away from it. Recently, due to a classic case of psychedelic mind-expansion, I've had a renewed interest in magical practice. Approaching it from the perspective of proving it doesn't seem as helpful; Besides things can be good for reasons other than we realize and true for reasons other than we understand. So there a specific interested in finding out if there's anything people do that they find helpful.
  4. I know that specific answers from person to person, I'd be interested in any stories about how people feel their 'other side' either helps or hinders their connection with supernatural forces. Given that all Otherkin are technically supernatural, do you see magic as being a more normal or important part of the world then people would give it credit for? I'm going to add my story below.
  5. My Story: I was raised an atheist, though it would be fair to call my household anti-theist. It wasn't just that we didn't believe in God, or that we knew God didn't exist, but that we were better for our true belief then they were for their lies. Even back then I've always had more respect for religion then either my brother or my dad, for example both of my best friends were Christian even though I would argue with them that they'd be better without it. As my experiences became more varied I lost the edge, gaining respect for beliefs in general, going to church regularly with one of those friends over a decade later. I still didn't believe in God, you could say I believed in belief in God. I wanted tangible evidence that never seemed to come...people tell you to have faith, to feel it, but that's not evidence. In all honesty this is why I first started watching Otherkin forums all those years ago, just to see and experience the culture of belief even if I was convinced you were all absolutely wrong. It sounds cliche, but I had an interesting experience with psychedelic mushrooms shortly after. Sufficed to say literal truth, especial when dealing with ideas, matters to me less afterwards. This has been helpful for dealing with God, but also for things like other worlds and reincarnation. I want to say it's true, but not...literally true? words fail for something that is true and describes something, yet can't be understood except through representative language. That is to say we say we use beliefs to express things we know to be true but don't have the words to describe. So while I'm not an Otherkin, I believe we refer to many of the same things but with different names.
  6. Given the variety of incredible claims about angels, demons and even gods reincarnated among us; I'm curious how being in the Otherkin community might change someones concept of God. I know that, like all questions of belief, it varies person to person as Otherkin don't have a monoculture. So I'm just interested in anyone's opinion on the relationship between the worlds and beings that the Otherkin believe in and the more widely understood notion of religious gods and/or the Abrahamic God in particular. Feel free to just leave an opinion or story below, I'll include my own but you don't necessarily have to read or comment on it.
  7. My perspective on Fictionkin, is that the idea had to come from somewhere, and that somewhere likely involves racial memory and the Akashic Records.
  8. Yes, I have got some really good DMT here and if you belong to the nobility or even better if you are royal (in this incarnation that is) then you can have some absolutely free of charge, providing that you let me rule the entire world... from within the shadows that is since we still want the commoners to believe that they are free and that their votes really matter...he, he! Now just to make some sense of the above... In many ways I like David Icke! He speaks his mind and have lost a lot because of this. After all if you cannot face yourself in the mirror then you may wonder why you should even be alive. He shuns the english royal family and truth be told, I don't like them that much either. He is however a bit of track when it comes Luciferianism, Vampires, Demons, and...Elves!!!!! I stumbled over a vid on YouTube about him stating that the archons aka the reptillians were really... damn and here is comes... Elves!!! Or rather what he calls "Machine Elves" - apparently small self reproducing Elves whom with their magical singing can create anything and on top of that...possess people making them willing slaves by the aid of DMT!!!! Now DMT is a very real substance: we all have a bit of this phycedellic drug in us safely tucked away in our pineal gland (the third eye) and all mammals has this which is the reason why people can use DMT without killing their next door neighbour etc. to get hold of the drug. David Icke and Alex Jones claim that people on DMT can easily "punch holes in The Veil" and get possesed by these nasty Elves and that Elves in human bodies are thus the real archons on this planet...apparently the reptillians have decide to pack up and leave or something like that...leaving it once again up to The Elves to be the seductive baddies as we were thought of in more darker times when people used think that the sun rotated around Gaia, that Syphilis sores were something to be proud of, and that royals were living gods!!!! Has David lost it? Well, let me put it this way...someone is definitely manipulating him. His mind is incredibly open and The Vorjen are very good at manipulating the open minded. You have really got be on your guard when being very open spiritually and astrally or even when just watching T. V, getting drunk or getting stoned...which is why I never touch alcohol or drugs. Now this is not the first time that David has made a mess of terms, names, and races. He has lashed out at Vampires without really knowing what the hell he was on about and now he had switched to Elves. Because trust me, if I was in any position to control the elite and this planet well then things would be very different!!!! I have never tried DMT myself and it would be far to dangerous to do it now, but no, I do not believe that The Veil can be punched through or it would have been if not gone then very weak by now. And those Elves who do "posess" people on this plane of exsistance are either Elves by blood or in my case, an Elven soul which has been in a human body since before I was born into this incarnation: I did not sing my way to a three months old fetus while leaving my 800 children which I had produced all by myself some where back in fairy land :-D So dearest David, if you are reading this... then you might want to read about The Vorjen, instead of going on about "baddies" like Vampires and Elves, because you are getting a tad of track, mate :-D Trust me, if I had so much power as you claim then The Windsors would be living in a small council flat somewhere in Manchester by now! You might be right about Elves in true form being sillica based instead of carbon based like us on this plane: the Fae realm is said to be of a higher density, but that is old news in this neck of the woods!
  9. Congrats!!!
  10. Well, I'm working on a lot of things right now, but I wanted to share this with my family here: amazon.com/author/ashleyaikey I published one of my original short stories (apparently it's considered a "novelette") and am pretty excited! I can't believe I finally did it!
  11. Congrats, Mog! When's the day? ^_^
  12. I've had things confirmed before as well, but I still take it with enough salt to taste. You never know what may be hanging around, unfortunately.
  13. And once they started on that then trust me...they will never stop
  14. Oh, fancy our Mog getting married It feels just like yesterday that you were a little shyte of a teenager Congratulations, Mog (and try not to set her so much on fire on your wedding night that you completely burn her out) So who is the lucky lady?
  15. There is of course no guarentee that what you see on the astral plane is 100% true, but I have been confirmed in what I have seen in more than just one incident.
  16. I am late in as usual, curls up I'm his spot next to the fire and reads the notes on the conversation so far. I am sorry to hear most people are having a hard time with work. I am doing well in this regard (you've all likely noticed my absence) but it takes up a lot of my time. Also getting married, so more time. But mostly working and playing games like I usually do :)
  17. It's no problem, yes cats do like to push things from.high places. My cat has caught onto this recently
  18. Munching on cooks from the ancient cooks preserver, I know right
  19. That's a good idea with the astral. I've tried looking for people online that I used to be in touch with, but for such a connected world it's awfully hard to find people.
  20. Asking for a bit of help is fine. There is a big difference between having a sparring partner and just learning back and doing nothing. I have tried to look for him online, but with no luck... I will give the astral plane a go in a few days time to see if I can get in touch with him there.
  21. Oh wow! Thanks to that spirit indeed! I'm glad that you weren't injured ^_^ I've been feeling and not-feeling things myself lately. It's always hard to tell with my meds and I haven't been remembering my dreams much again. I will say that the other night I left out an offering to my gods and goddesses and asked for some help, just a little bit, just enough. Came through, too, but I'm still in quite the bind, so I am asking for help again. I don't like being needy with them, I feel like I should take care of as much on my own as possible, but maybe.... I'm not sure if it was just my own thought or if someone actually said it, but it was suggested that maybe I'm not asking enough, or perhaps not being specific enough. I've been told before that I need to allow myself to ask for and accept help when I need it, instead of trying to do everything myself (which is, sort of, how I got injured at work anyway, but I'm of the mind that anything they can do I can do better and now I'm paying for not letting that door break my toes). Perhaps you could try to check in on your friend?
  22. Now normally I do not very well along with Angel kin, but then again it is not that kind of angel that I am refering to: it is the kind of angel on wheels who came about after the second world war in America...the biker sort. And I think that the spirit of such an angel might just have saved my life! Even as a punk, I used to get along well - and know both skinheads, psychobillys, and bikers and well 95% of time most punks, metal heads, skins, mods, bikers etc. did get along or chose to just ignore eachother back in Copenhagen decades ago. And I used to know 5-6 bikers myself, I especially liked this guy (let's just call him K) It was not that we had anything more going than a casual friendship, because when I say that we all got along then I do not mean that we got it off with eachother at least not long term... we were not that crossover!!!! Never the less then I really liked K and well, had we belonged to the same sub culture then we would definitely have been together... he was just the coolest guy ever and well the other bikers used to tease me and say that K had a thing for me, I do not know if that was true though..they were a bunch of cheeky buggarsAnd well recently I have thought a lot about K, a lot more than I have since well, at least since I moved to Sweden. K has never known about me getting married and divorced (at least I assumed he hasn't), he knows nothing about me awakening, he never met Luna, and he does not know that I have left Denmark... it has truly been that long ago that I last saw him! So I could not fall asleep to night and I was lying and thiking about K again. I got up and found that my candle had almost burnt down, I switch on the lamp and grabbed a knife in the kitchen to scrape out the last bit if the candle in the candle holder and did just that. Now my knives and utensils lie in baskets that hang from the ceilling, space is scarce so I have to be creative. And well as I put the knife back in the basket, then I swear I hear the phone ring and turn towards it, and in that second the basket falls of the nails hooked to the ceilling and the knife lands on the floor where I was just a second before. That knife is pretty sharp and well it migth not have killed me, but it could sure have injured me. I just felt somebody was there...and well, someone who clearly likes me. As I said thenI have not spoken with K for many years now, I do not even know if he is still alive...there was a huge nordic biker war in the late 1990's between the Hells Angels and Bandidos and well, a few got murdered, he might have been one of them. So I wonder if there is a connection between the sudden many memories of him and this incident! Anyway I remembered of course to thank the spirit for looking after me, no matter who it was. As for the knife, I think it must have fallen under the fridge, because now I cannot find it.
  23. Too bad it won't work out for my bill that's due in two days! I've started trying to do more and put my stuff out there more. I just joined RedBubble and put my first item up, I also have a Ko-fi page now. I'm trying, but it's...hard. I've applied to some regular jobs again but I already know that there are so many I just can't do. I'm really close to having my first short story ready to publish. I want to do it as a standalone eBook and an Audible. So close....just waiting for some feedback now that I've made some really big revisions to it.
  24. I am sure that things will work out with the bills, Rhannan :-) But yeah, being in an economical pickle is never fun.
  25. Mmm hot cocoa!\ Well, the tutoring thing is kind of bleh. If I could get myself into more and on a schedule, it would be going better. I guess I've just had a lot of trouble finding my rhythm sinc ejust before the end of the new year. I started selling some art tiles on Etsy and I'm working to get a short story completely revised and published. It was rejected from two places, so now I'm trying to just make some solid changes that will help refine the story and make it a bit longer. I'd like to self-publish it on Kindle and even do it as an Audible. I've started work on a collection of short stories and I'm just biding my time until I can get back to work on my thesis novel. The classes I'm taking this term aren't bad, just kind of frustrating at times because I'm having to do things I'm unfamiliar with, like create my author website and come up with a marketing plan. I did a site, but all of that is going to be under a pen name. Still working on getting the book of poetry together, I'm trying to make headway with that again but it's a little slow because I need to finish a painting that's supposed to be paired with one of the poems. I want to do it as a book of art and poetry, so we'll see. I have so many ideas and so little time to work on it all. I had to take a break from my computer yesterday. I used my phone, but never turned my computer on and I took some time to write, relax, and play a game. It was nice, just wish I could have maybe taken a second day to not be chained to my computer. Alas, the new week for class has started and I really need to put in some hours tutoring so I can pay these bills (which I don't think I'm going to be able to this month, honestly). I have no savings to live off of, unfortunately.
  26. I think a sundail watch would be well... a bit of a pain in the backside to wear... unless you have super strong wrists and lots of sunshine, I have neither :-D I have however heard that digital watches are not so sensitive to magnatism, but I have never seen one that I have liked...they are too masculine and bulcky for my taste. As for other electronic devices running on batter power: I am sure that it said some where in the manual which came with my tablet how long the battery lasted. Problem is I threw the manual away a long time ago without ever having reading it in the first place :-D So I must confess that I have never really notice if I drain other electronic devices as I do with watches. I have had a few pocket watches, but I forgot to put them away in some safe spot, when I had Luna. She used to like playing with them and pushing them down from tables... then the glass broke and well, death came swiftly by the touch of tiny, and yet fatal velvet soft paws :-D
