Naida Wrote:Has anyone else ever experienced the sense of your soul fading away or growing blank?
Yes. Perhaps the best way to describe it would be as a kind of dissociation. (Wikipedia it, the article there is very good.) There are times in which experiences, memories, even the sense of self and world become "unreal". This happens with normal, "mundane" things as well. Most people have it happen on a regular basis - often when driving - and with some people it is so severe it's a disorder.
Quote:Has anyone lost a part of their (for lack of better word) "Kin-ness"? What did you do? Can you bring it back? Is it lost forever?
My experience of it was that I felt a great sense of loss but didn't have the necessary part of my "self" to even understand what it was that I had lost; a little like losing your legs, but at the same time having no understanding of what walking was even like.
With me, I waited, it came back eventually. With others, it could be the same or different.
Quote:What about take overs? Has anyone had one part of themselves they were so sure about, they KNEW beyond a doubt that it is what they were disappear only to be replaced by something they were terrified of?
I think if you "know" absolutely what you are, then any change in your knowledge or your nature will be frightening because it is a direct challenge to your worldview. Being scared of yourself, or parts of yourself? Sure, I've felt that, in a kin-related situation. But people who have mental illness in their families feel it too.
Quote:What about having a second soul come into your body and take over? Is that possible? Can the souls share the room or will one eventually expel the other?
I cam't think of anyone I know who got taken over, as it were - but if a soul joins a body that's generally called a walk-in; the original can stay, leave, die, get blended, or any number of things.
Quote:If you've had any of these personal experiences I'd like to know more about them. If you'd rather your answer remain private, please PM or IM me.
I'm a multiple, specifically someone who is 90% Archer and 10% "my other half". Bits of me left, and were replaced when I was a young child with bits of him. I'm happy to discuss this or any other multiple related issues either here or in PM, whichever you prefer.
