Well, I'm back after what...way over a year or something?
I've found out a bit more about myself, my "angelic family", and a few other things in the bargain, so I might as well reintroduce myself at this point. I'm just gonna copy-paste one of my blog posts here, I think it's pretty specific and accurate. If'n y'all have any questions, pipe up, I'm not afraid to answer.
Oh, and my physical health has gone completely down the toilet as of summer 2008, so...if I don't post for a while, I'm probably too sick to crawl over to my computer, as usual.
My name is Sachael ("sah-kay-el" or Sachiel "sah-kee-el"). You can call me Sachael, Sachiel, Sach, my nickname AngelKat, or just use my human name Kate. I am an angel of the Abrahamic tradition; more accurately, Christian in denomination. If you want to get into specifics, I am of the cherubim: four-winged angels (often with a feline aspect) residing in the first level of Heaven, who are excellent singers and warriors. My trueform is humanoid, with four large teal wings (a pair at the shoulderblades and a pair at the waist), green-brown hair, and turquoise eyes. My feline aspect retains the eyes and wings of my humanoid form, but has the body of a jaguar and the coloring of a mountain lion (I also yowl and scream like a mountain lion, though my human body can't do it nearly as well as I'd like it to).
I have a sword called Ne'eth'er'sha'ai, meaning "Song of Heaven". As I remember it, all angels have swords as extensions of themselves, though some are more eager to use them than others. I've been lucky enough to find a fairly accurate physical representation of it, a bushido musashi with a rosewood handle and sheath. I studied under Nahariel, and went on to be assigned to Gabriel for further teaching (as I remember it, all angels learned under a general teacher or two, then were assigned to an archangel for battle or specialized instruction) in language, Reading (knowing the souls, intentions, and thoughts of others), and battle.
I have a secondary personality residing in my mind who goes by the name of Kat. I do not refer to myself as a multiple, as she and I were a single entity at one point. I suppose the best term for her would be "mental construct". Some time during my teenage years, Kat split off from my main persona and became more of a separate individual, as a way to help me relate to and cope with the Children (my term for humans). She is a midway point between my trueself and the human I function as in day-to-day life, and helps my two natures, angel in spirit and human in body, function as a single unit. Occasionally, Kat will fully have control of the body. It happens every now and then.
I've been self-realized for almost three years now, since March of 2007. I had been aware of otherkin for about a half-year before that, but I hadn't figured myself out until March. I'd previously assumed I was some sort of spiritually advanced human at least, a type of feline elf at most, since I've had visions and flashes of psychic intuition for as long as I can remember, and often reacted to stressful or emotionally charged situations with feline grunts, purrs, and hisses. In March, however, I was helping an angelic friend of mine, Nemamiah, research her name and past when I stumbled across my own name and title. I started trembling and crying, and I somehow knew that that name represented me. Ever since then I've been self-aware and remembering bits and pieces of my trueself.
I live with my boyfriend, who identifies as the archangel/seraph Remiel. We met when I was in college back in the fall of 2007, and I moved in with him a few months into our relationship. It took me a while to get back onto my feet (and back into my human family's good graces) after up and abandoning my life to move to a different state with my lover, but I'm now back in school full-time, four days a week, to work towards a medical career.
As of 2008, I've reconnected with my angelic twin sister, Eliah, here in the physical world (as a side note, I've been told by several acquaintances that angelic twins are rare?). Her trueform and mine are almost exactly alike, except her hair is a blue-brown and her wings are several shades darker. Her feline aspect is smaller and spotted, resembling an ocelot. She studied with me under Nahariel, and went on to study healing under Raphael. (I'll try to get Elly to sign up for OKP eventually...my first goal is to get her off her bum, help her get her GED, and get her moved up here to Indiana.)
I was adopted at birth, as both my biological parents were teenagers when I was born. My adoptive family, oddly enough, is entirely human, while my natural family consists of three generations of incarnated angels (including myself) and a good dose of hereditary fae. I recently got in contact with both sides of my natural family. Both sides have fae blood due to my almost pure Scotch-Irish heritage. My father's name is Nahariel, he was previously Fallen but has since burned rubber out of the Hell-realms and reformed himself (I do have several memories of the events leading up to his Fall, which took place during the Second War (to my recall, there are three angelic wars: the first against Morningstar (or "Lucifer") before the physical world existed, the second against Samael and the Nephilim before the Biblical events of the Great Flood, and the third yet to come at the End of all things)). My natural mother is human in spirit, but with a heaping helping of Celtic fae blood. (I came back into contact with my biological family March of last year, and...things are going fairly well. My mother is an atheist of the fairly bitter and rabid variety, though, so she and I don't get along so well. It's awkward.)
Human life....if you want to know, just ask. Some of the members who have been here longer probably remember that whole fiasco when I first moved out to Indiana, blah blah blah, but I'll be happy to fill in anyone who asks.
Oh, I'm back in college, finally. MedTech College, looking to graduate in 2011 with an Associate's degree and license in medical lab technology. After a while at private offices and small hospitals, I want to work in the neonatology ward at the St Francis Hospital down the street from my apartment.
So...I think that's about it, if there are any questions, ask me!
(I do have several explanations of the hierarchy and organization of Heaven and Hell, that I'd like to post eventually, once I get myself settled back in...)
"There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground."
dunno who said this, but i thought it was cool
