  1. First off, I come from a pretty religious, Christian family. Obviously, being a demonkin in a Christian place is sort of hard. I don't feel welcome and I feel almost alienated by my family. They call demons evil, satanic etc... and I know I am not that way. I feel that there are many different definitions to the word "demon," however I find this hard to explain. Does anyone have any insight on this? Christianity does not jive well with me for this reason, so I have been looking for something. Anything, honestly, that could be a fit for me. Are there any religions that even support Otherkin? I have tried paganism and the like, but something just feels off. Maybe it's my Christian upbringing? I am not sure, but some help and/or support would be greatly appreciated.
  2. The 9 Truths of Reality

    So, I suppose this means I'm back now? I've been lurking around the forum for a little over an hour, seeing what's what. I'm going to try and be more active now that my mood seems to be picking up. What made me think of coming back to the forum was, well, a mixture of things, but mainly reading stuff online that made me think of my kintype. The big scary spirit one, not the wolf one (that one's pretty hard to forget... haha). Reading certain things gets my head churning, thinking about my beliefs and how I feel reality fits together. I keep meaning to write about my actual beliefs, but I never get around to it. It's complicated. Too much effort for me, most of the time. And right now, I'm not planning on writing an essay - but I figure I'll take a shot at outlining what I think of the world. The universe as we know it isn't real. It's an illusion built by our consciousness, our "souls" if you'd rather. Kind of like a virtual reality constructed and maintained by our collective perception. The universe is malleable. There are "laws", but they can be broken. They're self-imposed. But it would take a lot to bend or break them, because you'd be fighting against a reality that has already been established, and all the units of consciousness that perceive it to be that way. The universe is impartial. Nothing cares. There's no rules here, except those we physical beings impose on ourselves. There's no divine justice, no universal standard of right or wrong. There's no judgement. There's just chaos and order, and everything caught between them. Neither are good or bad, they just are. Trust your perception above all else. Solipsism's got one thing right: you can only ever know for sure that you alone exist. Therefore, it stands to reason that you should base what you believe on what you directly perceive to be true. What you sense comes before all else. As far as I'm concerned, my imaginary daemon is more real than any person I've ever met. Why? Because he exists here, in my brain. He's not filtered through thousands of biased, imperfect senses. He's an aspect of my consciousness, my personality. Therefore, he is... probably real. Can't be certain, but then... You can never be certain about anything. How can you be certain, when you can't even verify the reality of the world you perceive yourself to live in? Are you truly certain of anything, without a shadow of a doubt? Can you prove anything... anything at all? You will never understand anything. In the words of H. P. Lovecraft, "the most merciful thing in the world [...] is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far." We cannot comprehend our own reality, and that is a good thing. You will never know the truth. Whatever your beliefs are, they are wrong. Mine too. Every single human in existence believes in something that has an infinitesimal chance of actually having any real measure of truth. Why? Because we are limited. There is so much that we cannot perceive, cannot know, cannot comprehend. You will never be right, and that is okay. Nothing dies, but everything changes. There is no ends. There's just millions and millions of cycles, each feeding themselves while tearing each other apart. Nothing lasts forever, but nothing ever truly ends. Change is life, stagnation is oblivion. Change is energy. Energy is everything. Take it away, and you have inertia: nothing. If I were to make a religion not something I'm planning on doing, haha these would be my 9 Big Tenets. Basically, don't believe anything, and remember that the universe is batshit crazy and makes absolutely no sense. Something I learned the hard way!
  3. "Other" religion?

    I know some of us have memories from our Otherborn/Otherkin selves of past lives. Some of those memories involve religion. My most vivid memories were of a lifetime when I was a Winged Elf. In that society, I filled the role of a healer/priestess. I worked with herbs, medicines, salves, tinctures, etc. I also worked with prayer, ritual, offerings, and honoring of our Gods. The more I examine my current Pagan practice as a Hedgewitch, the more I notice that things I remember from "then" seem to bleed over into "now". I still prefer working with herbs, roots, etc. I still like to be in an altered, ecstatic state when I perform ritual. I still work with cthonic energies and like to feel the pulse of the Earth I'm on. The Gods I honor are very based in plants and animals. Does anyone else find that religious or spiritual overtones kind of leak through?
  4. Christian Wicca?

    Hello. I am Ben Miller-Kilgore, and have recently begun to study magick. I have no problem with magick itself, in spite of my own beliefs about Jesus and God etc., but feel guilty for practicing Wicca while still worshiping a deity that inspired it's people to oppress witches for the longest time, and was wondering if there are any other people out there that could offer some advice.
  5. Winter traditions

    Yule, Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, and various other holidays and New Years are upon us this winter. What do you celebrate, and how? I've always celebrated Christmas with my family, since it's what I grew up celebrating. Christmas tree, lights, traditional stuff and all that. Christmas eve is spent with @pastrybears , and Christmas day with one side of my family. I've also begun celebrating Yule a little, mostly on my own. I used to really think I was a Celtic Reconstructionist, but now I'm discovering that I identify more with a Druid path, which as opened me up to new ways of worship and thinking. Because I'm still "in the broomcloset" with both my witchcraft and my religion, I find solace in the subtler ways of worship, like taking a nature walk, and making little crafts from things I find. I'm thinking of making a birdseed bagel, since the weather is unusually warm this year, and there may be a few more birds around. Although I'm an ethnic Jew, I never grew up celebrating Hanukah, but I'd like to try someday.
