Hello~
Hello! You can call me Katie, or Nousagi. I am currently eighteen years old, and I am a rabbit therian. I first awakened in 2004, but confused my totem with my theriotype. I'm not sure I could even be considered a therian at that point, even though I did have shifts (mostly mental and phantom). I did "soul search", I prefer to say introspection, but would have visions and dreams of my totem. That's why I was so easily mislead, because I had all the same signs. Looking back though, I don't think I looked into it enough. I settled with the shifts and the few dreams/visions and let that be reason enough for me.

Well, during the school year of `06-`07, I became pretty overwhelmed and my therioside went into submission. Once I got out of school, reawakening hit full force and I began to realize my initial error. The beginning of my reawakening started in early June of 2007, and I didn't truly consider myself fully awakened and sure of my theriotype until the beginning of December. That's about six months of time for introspection, and researching any other possibilities that come to mind. I did get great results since I took longer time and worked harder than in my first awakening. The story of my reawakening can be read here.

I can't remember exactly how I came across it, but I already was having mental and phantom shifts. I first came across the Neopets guild of Vampires of Eternal Night (now TrueForm Within), but the guild has been closed for some time now. TrueForm Within does have an active, friendly and fluff free board now, just to get the point across that it's not full of role players. I moderate there.

I'd like to make it clear that rabbits are not my favorite animal. (I love cats, giraffes and ferrets.) It could be true though, that I was also a bit biased when I went through my first awakening because at that time, cats were my favorite animals. I love animals in general, but any time I am able to be near rabbits, I am absolutely elated. I don't believe I have the power to read animal thoughts, but body language is very obvious to me.

I went through many animals. Honestly, I had never even though of a rabbit until I gave it time. I don't remember exactly how long I contemplated that species, but the more I thought and meditated on it, the more it seemed to make sense to me. My eating habbits changed to preferring vegetables and fruits while shifted, my phantom tail seemed very small to nonexistant, but my ears were always there and in the way. A lot. I noticed that they must be larger because they would often touch things when I figured I was nowhere near irritating them. My shifts were even the same when I believed myself to be a cat therian, but I am not afraid to admit that I was rather dumb and "noobish" at that time.

Of course I have questioned my therianthropy, and doubted it up and down. Especially when my therioside went into submission. I figured, maybe I was making it all up! If I did mistake my totem for my theriotype and/or get it confused with a strong liking towards cats, maybe I'm not a therian. Maybe my totem was just trying to show me something through the shifts and everything. Even though I'm pretty sure of myself this time around, there is always that thought in the back of my mind that I could be wrong again. What if I just have another totem? However, I think I'm as sure as I'll ever be right now.

I have shifts daily, and am constantly phantom shifted. I can induce phantom and mental shifts at will, but I believe everyone can learn to do so. I have also experienced mental, dream, and aura (other people have said this!). I have a hard time with astral projecting, so I have yet to experience an astral shift, if I ever will. I cannot physically shift, and currently do not believe that it is possible this day and age. Maybe some day, but I think we are very far from it.

My personal theory on therianthropy is divided at this point in time between mental or reincarnation. That's a long story in itself.

I used to be quiet a forum whore, but it died down earlier this year. I'm slowly beginning to branch out again and be active in one or two other communities besides TFW. My therianthropy is a huge part of my life, and I hope to continue embracing it and to never let it go. :3 Questions are of course very welcome and I actually prefer to be asked!

Haha, it's okay. Thanks for the welcome. :3

By the way, if I do really become comfortable with this community, I tend to be quite the postoholic. :/

Re: Hello~
Hi and welcome to OKP! I do have a question for you though, with all the predator therians out there, what's it like being a "prey" animal among mostly carnivores?

Re: Hello~
Thanks for the welcomes. :3

I'd say most of the time it doesn't seem to matter. But it's difficult to not be able to relate as far as diet and possible past life memories. The desire for a good hunt, for example. Along with my general fear and dislike of dogs, when most therians I've met really like them.

I haven't met a therian in person yet, but I can imagine that if we were both very mentally shifted that I could become afraid of the person. If they were a predatory animal, that is.

Re: Hello~
Hi - were you at OKA, by any chance? I remember a 17-year-old rabbit therian there, and I'm pretty sure she was a Katie, too.

Welcome to the OKP! *leaves fruits and carrots*

Re: Hello~
Salutations

Love your web page. And I agree with you on using the term introspection as opposed to soul searching. It fits more for the way I view it.
