    - This should go without saying yet time and time again people don’t do it - do some research into fictionkin before deciding you are fictionkin. And I do not mean just spending an hour or so on someone’s personal blog. Honestly, the more you read (especially outside of tumblr…) the better. Yes, looking for good and accurate information on fictionkin can be very hard (and you are going to have to keep an eye out for fluff and misinformation) , but it’s just something that really needs to be...

Currently, there are no widespread psychological or neurological studies about non-human identity. Therefore psychological...

    There are nearly an infinite number of personal spiritual beliefs that are held worldwide to this day. Although personal spiritual beliefs are highly subjective and personal, the rules are hardly “anything goes” when it comes to spiritual Otherkinity. Otherkinity is characterized by identifying as non-human on a deeply personal and integral level in a non-physical sense. Most Otherkin generally share the same kinds of basic experiences. It is not so much the “what” of our experiences that...

    What is Meditation? Meditation is a journey into the unknown and into the mind. It can help relieve stress, help with chronic pain, can make you sleep better, feel happier, be more peaceful, as well as be more present and discover more about one’s self.

    One of the first things I tell people when I join an otherkin forum is that I've been part of the online kin community for a long time; in Internet terms, that means about 15 years.

That's where this guide comes in; it's my way of helping to prepare you for what you'll encounter here. There are all sorts of...

It can be hard to explain how you've come to believe you're otherkin, especially at first. This guide will attempt to give some pointers on what to avoid and...

    Other-Hearted vs. Otherkin

    Relevant Communities:
    • Otherkin
    • Other Hearted
    As the Otherkin community continues to grow the term is shaped and warped to encompass everyone and is often misinterpreted. A ‘movement’ that is gaining momentum now is trying to change the definition of Otherkin to encompass those who have strong feelings towards, or relate well with non-human beings. This thought process most likely comes from the lack of knowledge of a term that already exists for those who strongly relate to non-human beings. To fully understand these terms and their...
