make your tumblr the best space for you

you are not on this site to please others or cater to things that upset you

surround yourself only with the things you want to see

your dash should lift your spirits, make you think and smile

if it doesn’t, don’t feel bad about unfollowing or doing whatever you need to do that is right for you

first and foremost, ensure that tumblr is a safe, fun space for you

How To Discover If You Are A Therian Or Otherkin

primal-state:

This is a very common question asked on forums, message boards, websites, groups, and other places where Therians and Otherkin gather. There are many answers to this question, and many opinions in regards to how to discover you are a Therian or Otherkin. 

Firstly, when someone realizes or discovers they are a Therian or Otherkin, this is called “Awakening” or becoming “Aware”. (I prefer the term “aware” since the community firmly states one is born a Therian/Otherkin and one does not choose to become one, therefore one simply becomes “aware” of themselves. Awakening tends to be of a more spiritually applied term to those who identify spiritually, but since I do not, this is another reason I will use the term “aware”). Someone may have realized from a young age they were different than other people behaviorally. They may have acted out with animal-like behaviors and had difficulties socializing with other people. This could also be due to other reasons as well, but it seems to be an extremely common statement among the Therian and Otherkin communities that behaviors were noticed during childhood. Others claim they never noticed these behaviors until they became a teenager. Another common theme when discovering ones identity is repetitive dreams about a specific animal or creature or a strong affinity towards an animal or creature that one may or may not like. 

Once someone establishes they feel they may be a Therian or Othekrin, the second step is to figure out what kind. The best course of action would be to find a journal or notebook and record daily behavioral patterns that one notices that wouldn’t be “human-like”, such as desires to kneed or wanting to constantly chew on something. Record all of these findings, and then do research on animals that reflect that behavioral pattern. Keep an open mind and broad list, as there are millions of animals, millions of insects, millions of plants, and millions of mythical creatures to study and research. Write down all dreams about animals or creatures no matter how insignificant they may seem, and look for patterns of reoccurring ones throughout different dreams. Eventually you will come across an animal or creature during your research that stands out or strikes you as “the one”.

One must always keep in mind that it can take weeks to years to discover themselves, and at the end of all of the research and the effort, one may even realize they weren’t a Therian or an Otherkin, but a Phytanthrope or Primal. One may even discover they’re nothing at all but simply have a strong like of an animal or creature. The key here is understanding, research, and time.

A really nifty book I just picked up today, it’s set up like a textbook detailing the fictional biography of a scientist who dissected and studied various mythological and religious creatures before abruptly vanishing from society in the early 1900’s, the book being mostly composed of Grey’s Anatomy style plates detailing the creatures’ internal anatomy from several different angles.

I HAVE A GREAT NEED.

my friend has this book and I got to look through it and IT IS AMAZING OMG

Anonymous asked: Hey how are you? Saw that you're a therian. I love therians a lot, especially the feline type. Felines rule! I used to identify as a therian until I realized my scitzophenzia causes it. When I'm on my meds that half of me goes away.

I’m fine! Felines are obviously the best; I’m glad you agree ;D

I can definitely see how some variations of schizophrenia could be interpreted as therianthropy on the surface (as can other mental conditions like autism and depersonalization). I’m glad you got everything sorted out - a lot of people will decide they’re otherkin/therians and then refuse to take advice that says otherwise. A lot of the people currently posting in the otherkin tag cite symptoms of mental disorders (usually the two I mentioned) as their reasons for believing they are “nonhuman” and it’s really worrying.

Filed under otherkin therian ask they will also cite completely normal things like 'I really really like space' sigh Anonymous
