Hello!
Hello everyone! Just thought I would make a little introduction here. My name is Anetiel, but I'm known as Redd at Otherkin.com. I thought it would be nice to join another community of otherkin and see what it's like, and this forum was recommended on OK.com's main page.

As you can see, I'm an angelic, and I've been awakened as an angelic for a few months now, but I've technically have been aware that I'm otherkin for about a year and a half. The reason is because I thought I was a wolf therian for a while, but I figured out otherwise.

Anyway, it's nice meeting you all! (And seeing some familiar faces).

Well, it began when I first admitted to myself that I wasn't a therian. Calling myself a therian didn't feel right, and I knew I was kind of kidding myself there. Yet the main reason why I thought I was a therian was because I thought my soul--being me without a body--was something other than human. I realized that I was on the right track, that I was otherkin, but I wasn't a therian. So I meditated on it for a while, and realized there were some things that date back to my childhood that I didn't take into consideration, such as my intense feelings of some odd displacement, the feeling that I was somehow different from other people, and the life-long presence of phantom wings. (I've only realized I've had phantom wings all my life fairly recently. I've disregarded them as a child because they weren't physical).

Now I consider myself angelic. I don't know much beyond that, such as what angel I am and what kind of job I performed, but I'm still looking into it. I'm not sure what else to say beyond this, so I hoped this answered the question.

Re: Hello!
But why angel? Phantom wings can mean anything including being symbolic and some angels don't even have wings, so where did the idea of angel come from?

I know that phantom wings do not necessary mean anything. I just happen to have them. Maybe they've been symbolic to my life; wanting to go home but not having the ability to do so. Maybe that longing is the reason I have phantom wings so strongly. *Shrugs*

This is actually a question which I've been struggling with, so I'll answer it to the best of my ability. Why angel? Why not demon? I've actually considered demon, and I opted it out because the nature of demons are too chaotic, and the thought of being one seemed to terrify me down to the core. It felt wrong. So I sat down and thought (and meditated) on it numerous times. I've even consulted tarot cards as of recent. My friend, who's a vampire, has offered up small insights but hasn't tried pushing me one way or another. She says it's my path to walk.

I came to the conclusion that I'm an angel because it explains my feelings of displacement and difference among people. It's the same reasons why I thought I was a wolf therian, but I never searched further into the situation until now.

I guess it's what seems to fit best.
