Hello Everyone
Hello everyone!

I call myself Earth Listener (kind of a misnomer to say that though, considering its my username but oh well; proper introductions are always important). I am 19 years old female from Arkansas, and am also a therian with a wolf theriotype.

I have always had an odd connection or something like that with canines, partially the wolf as far back as I can remember. When I was little I always felt like I was a wolf in some way on the inside. When I was really little I thought it was natural to strongly personify, represent your nature, and attribute yourself to an animal of some sort. It only confused me that no one seemed to do or felt the same. As I grew older I began to internalize and mask all of my natural canine urges that I did and hidden them from view of others as best I could though they never stopped being there.

Then, when I was fifteen years old, during the summer of 2004 I began experiencing shifts and I consciously became more aware of my own wolf nature. For a long while I didn’t know what I was and I would often go back and forth form thinking I was either some weird werewolf that was only one spiritually and couldn’t actually physically transform or that I was just plain weird and insane. Then in the spring of 2006, by chance, I stumbled upon therianthropy on the internet. I was highly skeptical at first, but as I read through webpage after webpage it kept feeling like complete déjà vu. I was still skeptical for quite a awhile, but I kept doing research and I just became more and more convinced. The rest is a bit of history.

It wasn’t until the very end of 2007 though I became a part of the therianthropy community and began to take part in talks and discussions with others on several forums. I thought it would be enlightening and interesting to expand to otherkin in general forums as well. So when I heard of otherkin Phenomena form on the Werelist, I thought here would be a nice place to start.

I often find I can learn more about myself and my own thoughts and views by listening and learning (hence my the name Earth Listener I guess) about other’s experiences, so I hope to come here not only to meet, talk to, and have fun others but also to continue to learn about myself in away.

Again, nice to see everyone. Feel free to ask any questions you like and I will try my best to answer them.
