Throughout my time in the otherkin/magick/psionics community, something that comes up a lot is scanning. People will sometimes argue about how this works. They'll say that reading isn't possible over a picture or over the internet, but how do we all know? Have all of us tried? Are some of those people just unable to accept others with a stronger ability to scan? Or is it some other reason that my mind currently can't explain in a coherent manner? This blog post is about what I think about the topic.
Sometimes you'll hear that otherkin can't be read by others. People in my facebook groups sometimes will post a pic for a kin reading game, and although some may make it a guessing game, there are some that have actually read them and get them right. I've actually done multiple with people where I had them message me instead of comment in order to avoid subconscious influence. People got it right usually.
Reading Over the Web or Using Pics
People will sometimes tell me that apparently if you think people can be read through these, you're apparently a fluff. Well, I WOULD be neutral on this issue, but I've been read by people over the web and through pics and they all got the same, and correct answer. Another friend of mine was read by two of my friends, and they got what I had read her as in real life.
I do understand the possibility of coincidences and I always think about them, because I like to question myself to ensure I'm more down to Earth. For example; on the Otherkin reading and the reading over the web and using pics, it could be lucky guesses for the other people, but I also constructed the reading game for me over the internet, and I have gotten enough readings to say it is very likely reading for kin AND reading over the web is possible. So for now, I'm saying it's a 95% chance it's not coincidence. Thanks for reading if you did and being polite if you are.
