Greetings one and all!
I know its going to sound like a typical 'oh I'm new here' type thread, but then again, if we are posting here, why wouldn't we be new in the first place? XD Anyhow. Up until recently, I've been sitting on some old dreams of mine, that I could never figure anything out with, but the curiosity of finding out what they meant, if anything, always stayed with me over the years. However, I have been talking to another otherkin here at length about some of my own past. Now, I won't flood the introductory forum here with it, but mostly what I'm after here is seeking out information more about how I can further explore on my own, and do it safely. I've been told by a few that if I tried searching improperly, that things could turn out for the worse, and I'd like to avoid that at all costs.
Quite a number of years ago, I was always visited once a year by..well, what I could tell, was a silver dragon, and it was always a few days after a rather...unsettling anniversary in my life. However, once he left, everything felt as right as rain, strong, whole again, and in a week or twos time, it would fade away again and I'd settle back into the same old situation. This was well back when I was 12, and the idea of a 'fur fandom' or even otherkin at that time was far unknown to me, so I'm really wondering if there's something more there, or if it was just a heavy coincidence of it happening every year for the next 9 years. At that time, I had discovered that there were others that had shared....seemingly familiar experiences and sought one out to speak with him about it. After explaining myself to him in length and detail about what was happening to me, he proceeded to lash out and pretty much crush everything I had even thought about at the time. Since then, the dreams haven't returned, but I've kept the image in my mind as long as I can. I've come to learn later on, that the one I talked to was an extreme elitist, and thus was very biased on his 'suggestion' on what I do.
But after speaking with my friend regarding this, he's been trying to give me options on what to do, and how to try to bring things out. I've had minimal success with it so far, but its been more promising, and its sparked that burning sense of curiosity within me to try to figure out the truth, if there is anything going on within me. From so many years ago, its hard to remember all the details, but quite a few of them have stuck with me this long, and I do hope that...well, if there really ISN'T anything there, that my ideas aren't smashed into the ground. XD
Thank you all in advance, and I'm looking forward to browsing the forums here, and seeing what I can learn!
