Demons
Hello, I am new here. I like to be referred by as Skorpio.
When I was only six I was always teased, I would chase the person away, trying to nearly rip off their face. My '' mother'' was told this wasn't normal. When I was eleven I started feeling wings, I thought I was going mad and still not sure what to make of it. I have heard from many places that wings do not determine kintype, but now I feel a tail, and somethmg on my head I am not quite sure of. People have described me as creepy, even demonic, though I do not often attack. I think I am demon.

I've felt wings for a long time now, thinking I was something other than human. I spent much time googling phantom limbs and demons, at the very most I only found demonalatry sites with useless info. Then I stumbled across a site 'Otherkin Alliance' with an article by simim about demons. I decided to read more.

I saw an article by Kahoku on demons and knew that i was not crazy, there are others like me. I had no idea what otherkin were until then. I asked kahoku for help. He said to try meditating. I get visions when I meditate and although they are usually abstract, after some thinking they make sense. I came here for help.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. I'm sure the other members will have some good ideas and questions to help you.

I'm going to go ahead and delete your other post since it's mostly the same thing. In the future, you can edit a post if you find you have more to add - there's an Edit button over on the upper right side of the post, to the left of your name.

Re: Demons
Welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> I feel the need to point out that childhood behavior and one's kintype may very well be not at all related. Heck, behavior in general and one's kintype may not be at all related. Also, phantom wings may just be symbolic, not everyone who feels phantom wings have a winged kintype...just something to keep in mind. I'm also interested as to why demon seems to equate to "creepy" to you.

Kahoku's advice to meditate on things is very sound. Meditation isn't something that comes naturally to everyone and even to those whom it does come naturally meditation doesn't instantly yield the results you're looking for. Figuring out one's kintype takes time.

So what other than being perceived as "creepy," childhood behaviors, and phantom wings makes you think you're otherkin at all let alone demon-kin?

Re: Demons
Seraphyna, I never said demons were creepy. I said people describe me as that.

And Seraphyna just wanted to know why you believe you're a demon.

We have: violent childhood behaviour; phantom wings; people thinking you're "creepy". It's a jump from that to "demon", so the question is just - why did you make that jump?

Also, when people say "demon" it can mean a lot of things. What does the term mean to you?

Re: Demons
Sounds like we're getting into checklist thinking again.

Kin taxonomy. Does it have three stamen or five? Taxonomy was such a boring class....

What you are isn't nearly as important as who you are.
