Hither and thither, from place to place.

As anyone who has stumbled in here in the last year can attest, I haven’t been writing much. And yet, I still write, just not on the blog. What’s worse, is that I have several posts on my AlphaSmart that I have written up. I could post them, in a while. They’ll need editing.

Like a repeat of last year, I’m dealing with a bothersome tooth. However, unlike January of last year, I am thankfully not dealing with that urological problem I had and endured for several months after. The only additional issue is the seemingly seasonal upper chest congestion which required prescriptions from my doctor.

Speaking of her, I think I made her day, her month, her year, when I was asking her about dosage for the Symbicort inhaler I need but can’t afford. When I showed her a print-out of a Canadian online pharmacy (found through an excellent site called PharmacyChecker) she was stunned at the difference in price. Here, a 160-puff/4.5mcg per dose Symbicort inhaler costs $312. Whereas on the one site I ended up using, the generic 4.5mcg/puff inhaler was 360 doses for $55 (the generic is not offered in the US of A.) I gave her the printout because she was going to help one of her other patients, due to their insurance rejecting payment of the same medication.

Right now, even though I’m on an antibiotic for my tooth, I have a 99 fever. I wondered why I was still cold even with the heat on (normally it heats quite well.) I’ll probably take a melatonin and go to bed soon.

One reason I felt the need to update this besides needing to blog some more, was to at least give any new viewers a look at some of my insights and into my psyche. That’s what the Internet is for, or at least for blogs. I’ll get into more Otherkin thoughts soon, including one djinni-centaur life that reads well enough to be a fictional story. I have considered turning it into a book.

My publishable writing has suffered from me focusing more on my Otherkin lives and musings within that topic. While I could certainly have something people might like to read, I have an existing story where I have bogged down in editing and figuring out how to tie certain passages together. I had written them when I had an idea and did not have an idea of where they’d go within the whole story. Plus, I really need to twist my villain more and show how she gets that way. One of my favorite villains is Alfred Bester of Babylon 5, because while he is despicable, he still manages to have a heart in there somewhere. Character-complexity is perhaps my nemesis.

Well, I think it’s time to trot off to bed, once I take something for this fever.

Landlords

Here’s a little bit of real life for those of you who haven’t yet moved out to be on your own.

At the moment, I am both pissed off with and shaking my head at the density of my landlords head. Honestly, do they go to a special landlord school in order to learn how to be as dense and clueless as possible? Or does the position simply attract that type of person to it?

Here’s what’s been happening since the end of last month. Electricity issues. In my particular complex, we do have the benefit of something called “All Bills Paid” (ABP) which is that the landlord pays for our water, gas, electricity, and garbage collection. He also has two water boilers for our hot water (instead of individual units for each apartment.)

Now, the first issue was that, due to the City of Houston inspecting the electrical situation coming into the complex, he has had to re-wire all of the circuit boxes on the rear wall of the main building (three buildings here, one big one, and two smaller ones, 16 units total.)

Another Kintype?

It’s about time I made a new post. I have written things for posting in the past and then nixed them, so let’s do a spur of the moment one.

The Otherkin stuff remains on my mind, even though I’m pretty well settled with the identity of centaur (in other words, my “kintype” is “centaur.”) Even so, there continues to be strong pangs of longing and similar feelings towards centaurs.

What is new is the idea of adding another kintype. That would be “djinni.” However, notice that I said it’s a new idea; I haven’t decided on its veracity to me, and, as happened with just admitting that I was centaurkin, it may be another year or two before I do that with this one. Read More…

Injurious Insult

This post is about a couple of incidents in the last twenty-four hours, one from a friend, and the other from someone in a chatroom for us Otherkin.

I’ll start with the chatroom. This was in the spiritual room for chat at Kinmunity. So, I’m already assuming it will be a relative safe-haven for spiritual discussion.

As it turned out, I learned that my beliefs of Infinite Universes doesn’t mesh with established scientific and philosophical ideas, and instead are an indicator of “Tumblrkin.” That is, kin that are dismissed as either fake or “fluff” and therefore targets for mocking and ridicule. Read More…

Dreams and Otherkin Identity

I’m going against the mainstream and the materialists here because I don’t accept the common definition of dreams, that they are purely functions of the brain and mind, and nothing else.

I’m also posting here and on tumblr because it’s one of those topics that would not go over well on Kinmunity, even though I love that site in every other way.

My spiritual beliefs are accepted as a means of being Otherkin as well as a means of validation. And yet…and yet, my spiritual beliefs with regard to dreams are not accepted. Well, either you accept all of it or you only accept the materialist definition of Otherkin, which is that it’s all in our minds, psychologically-based only.

I do sometimes get the impression that the spiritual basis for Otherkin is only grudgingly allowed due to so many using that as their means of identification. If they didn’t let us in, their community would be woefully tiny. Or, people would agree to their terms just to get into the community and do their best not to say anything related to spirit and Otherkin.

Dreams are one of the biggest reasons I identify as centaurkin. Because I believe that dreams are a direct connection to Spirit and its infinite worlds. When I dream, I’m in those worlds, whether as a centaur, a djinni, or just my natural human self. I’m visiting deceased friends and family because they are there and my dream-state is an easy means of getting to them. It’s also an easy means of being my Otherkin selves and forms in their natural realms. When I dream, I’m out of my mind!

I suspect this will give fuel to those often mocked as “fluffy” to the chagrin of the materialists. Honestly, I don’t care how they react. If you accept that I have non-materialist beliefs, then accept them all. Don’t cherry-pick.

A Case for Factkin

I know this is going to upset quite a few in the Otherkin community, but I hope to explain this type of kin in a way that can be pondered in a positive manner.

First off, the current definition of Factkin: A person who identifies as or believes they are, spiritually or psychologically, a person from the ‘real world’, whether from the past or the present.

Now, here’s why I think they can be part of the community. It all has to do with two concepts, both of which I’ve discussed before on this blog. That is, the topics of “other lives” and “simultaneous time.” Of course, all of this depends upon beliefs in souls, and in the idea that souls have more than one life. Many spirituality-based Otherkin already have such beliefs as the basis of their identities. I’ll leave the psychologically-based factkin up to those that believe it’s all psychology and not spirituality. Read More…

A Writer’s Fictionkin

I hope to assuage one particular concern my fellow kin may have about this topic. What I see coming up again and again is that they would not like it if someone stated being fictionkin of one of their characters. Well, here’s how I look at this, as an aspiring writer as well.

I believe in an infinite number of universes.

Think about that.

Infinite.

Not finite.

An unlimited number of universes. Read More…

Mythology and Otherkin

Many Otherkin with whom I’ve met and had discussions sometimes question whether they can be Otherkin at all due to their inner knowing not matching established mythologies. I’d like to take a few of y’all’s moments to dispel this ‘myth.’

Mythologies are helpful guides and a good starting point. However, they are stories based on ancient people’s perception of their world at that time. They may have existed, depending on your belief as to whether that’s possible (gateways from other worlds, alien creations through genetic engineering, other universes overlapping this one, etc.) They may also have been shamanic visions of different realities. While I can accept any of that, I acknowledge not all can. That’s fine.

However, if your kin is based on a mythology, you’re already in an area some Otherkin can’t accept as having any basis in fact. Read More…
