Evening All
Hi <!-- s:mrgreen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green" /><!-- s:mrgreen: -->

I'm Shen, I have a variety of other names but Shen's my most used. I've been in and out of the otherkin and pagan communities for the past decade. I left a few years back after getting fed up with the influx of fluff and people jumping on me and stating I must be a fake because i'm a polymorph. I see things have improved since, so i'm back to find some friends, learn some stuff and see where it all leads <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

I'm a practising pagan, I call myself ecclectic leaning towards chaos magicks.

As a polymorph I happen to hold the beliefs that i'm a balancer and guardian/patron of the element fire. This means I believe I was created by a higher being to fulfill my purpose (balancer). I also happen to think i'm on good terms with a number of different deities from varying pantheons but that's probably for the paganism/occult section <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

I was pretty much born awoken so I love hearing about and helping people awaken; however as a polymorph I'm constantly shifting and changing. Any questions? Feel free to ask <!-- s:mrgreen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green" /><!-- s:mrgreen: -->

I am everything, I am nothing, I am balance.

Re: Evening All
Welcome to OKP!

As a fire polymorph, do you have any favored forms?

Re: Evening All
Yep. So before I start, when I say I was born awoken, I mean I was born knowing I was different, having pre-cog dreams etc. I did however spend years going through meditation, research, introspection, pathfinding, etc etc.

Secondly, my personal use of terms - I use the term aspect to mean a form which I very strongly identify with and regularly shift some part of or shift to in some manner. I can't really remember where this habbit came from but I thought I should explain it now.

So; while I was first figuring out the polymorph deal I though I was an artic wolf shifter. Arctic wolf is one of my two strongest and preferred aspects. My second most preferred aspect is feline, Jaguar to be more exact. These are the two forms which I tend to mental shift most often, I actually act very feline a lot of the time. Then there's sparrowhawk, and viper (possibley egyptian asp? I've not fully decided which viper it is yet).

Saying the above, i'm usually in a state of having phantom feline ears and tail, with angelic wings o.O;

Thanks for the welcome, I hope that answered it in a way you can understand!

I am everything, I am nothing, I am balance.

Welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> When you use the "title" of "balancer" do you mean that in respect to your element, or something else?

Re: Evening All
It's the simplest label I could think of to define my role. It means i'm one of many beings who help maintain the balance across the planes. My affiliation with fire is seperate really.

Re: Evening All
Did you stumble across my article somewhere, or did you come to that conclusion on your own?

Re: Evening All
I have read your article yes. It was an interesting read, I agreed with some points but not others. As for your question, no; your article did not spark me to realise and happen across my role. It merely gave me a more usable label for said role. I've known what I am for a long time now.
