used to say things, strange things. Things that were actually a
reflection on one of my previous lives, and these statements I would
blurt out without realizing it. Of course people just thought me
weird and thought nothing more on the matter but I knew there was
a reason why I was saying the things I would say. They were reflections
on a life as a one quite familiar with the dark mysteries of the
magical arts; a Necromancer. "
around the awakening is basically a period of re-evaluation of one's
self. As I said before the awakening is when the subject realizes
that they aren't completely (or at all) human in spirit. Sometimes
they develop a new perspective on life, which could be any or a
combination of the perspectives the subject had in previous lives.
It is also a process wherein the subject delves into the self through
different techniques to learn more about the self. Such techniques
are among regressions and tracing past lives. Other things that
seem to assist some Otherkin have been meditation, artwork, and
have long assisted in people with quieting the mind and reaching
a state of calm. This is no exception regarding awakenings. Recording
them afterwards is also good for keeping track of the meditations
and how they affected the subject. Artwork is one of my favourites.
For a while now I've been drawing figures which have seldom triggered
memories for myself, but seem to immediately trigger memories for
those around me. So I keep drawing, hoping someday I'll be able
to piece it all together. Writing is useful on a few levels. While
it is useful to vent your personal feelings about the changes going
on in and around you, it is doubly useful in meditative circles
as automatic writing.
are different kinds of awakenings which are bound to occur. The
slow awakening, the gradual awakening and the sudden awakening.
In the slow awakening the subject finds things out over a long period
of time and after a while starts piecing things together. In the
gradual awakening things eventually make sense and memories start
coming back the further the subject goes with his/her awakening.
The sudden awakening is a speedy recovery of memories and awareness
in which something triggers the subject into remembering; the subject
can be triggered by nearly anything. Some, however, are not so lucky.
who have awakened can not remember much if anything about their
true selves at all, which is most often referred to as LostKin.
In many cases, among Otherkin, and Lostkin, the subject can count
more abilities than memories. I honestly take this as part of the
slow long process. Perhaps there's a stronger need for the abilities
than the memories at that particular time. If that's the case don't
worry about it and just let it flow. I shall go further in depth
on abilities next time with a discussion on senses.
