Hello everyone
Hello everyone. I just joined this site. A little about me. I'm quarter human, quarter elf, and half demon. I am in the body of a male (didn't choose it and wasn't expecting to be in it) but my soul or astral body is female. I won't give you my last name on the astrals but I will give you my first and middle name. It's Hanna Trinity. On the astrals I am a princess (I know some of you will find that hard to believe) and I'm related to the Greek gods by way of my astral grandmother having been adopted by Chronos (again I know some of you will find that hard to believe). I will tell you that I'm not a goddess. Who knows if I will become one in the future or not. I'm not concerned about it. Well that's all i have to say for now.

Re: Hello everyone
First off, welcome. Make sure you take a gander at the rules, as not reading them doesn't mean they don't apply.

HannaTrinity Wrote:A little about me. I'm quarter human, quarter elf, and half demon.

Okay...how exactly do you figure you're only quarter human? I mean, provide the DNA evidence if you have it, but your body is 100% human at the moment so technically you're full human with beliefs that you are in some way elf and demon. That aside, what makes you quarter elf and half demon? How did you come to that conclusion? Also, what's your definition of "demon"?

I do find this hard to believe...I'll be honest and say someone claiming to be related to the Greek gods via a specific family member (in the astral no less) makes me want to claim kinship with the easter bunny. Anyone can claim to be someone high and mighty. Heck, many people delude themselves into believing they're said someone high and mighty...but that doesn't mean they are that high and mighty individual. What separates the fluff from the non-fluff, to me, is the ability to say "hey, this might be all in my head, etc. but it's what I believe" vs. "this is what I know to be a 100% truth". I also don't personally believe one can become a deity. We are created beings from an energetic standpoint. If your definition of a deity is a being that can make other beings, then we're all deities. So what's your definition of "deity"?

Re: Hello everyone
Uhm, like, hello, yeah. Right on.

Do you mean you are physically those things, or that your "soul" is those things? If the latter, how are you able to quantify the percentage make up of your soul?

Quote:I am in the body of a male (didn't choose it and wasn't expecting to be in it) but my soul or astral body is female.

I tend to believe that gender is largely a cultural construct with contributing factors of biological sex differences effecting behaviour. As such, I don't understand what it means to say a non-physical being (soul or astral entity) can be either male or female.

What do you mean by this? Do you mean your astral body is female in that it carries young, female in that it has two X chromosomes, or female in some other sense?

Quote:On the astrals I am a princess (I know some of you will find that hard to believe) and I'm related to the Greek gods by way of my astral grandmother having been adopted by Chronos (again I know some of you will find that hard to believe).

By my "nature" I am what could be called an astral entity. Not only have I never heard of you, but I haven't encountered any kind of royal heirarchy either. So what is it to be a princess on the "astrals"? Does this apply to the entire astral dimension, or just some parts of it? Who recognises you as a princess? What kind of authority (or other effects) does it give you?

Nice to meet you, and I look forward to hearing further.

Re: Hello everyone
Hello and welcome, I too and looking forward to hearing more on this.

My questions have already been asked here, however there's still one. Since the Greek pantheon are largely considered gods by virtue of relations to Zeus and therefore by extension to the Titans, being adopted by Chronos doesn't seem to me to have any effect on godhood, only name. Additionally, the tradition of gods in religions like the Greek and Roman pantheon often referred to any divinity as a god, despite many like Hermes (a perfect example) being much more akin to Angels, where do you fall in with this belief or definition set?

Additionally, as long as I've known, the Astral plane does not operate by names such as the US postal system does (or any other mailing service for that matter). As a matter of opinion the Astral is largely energy related which means that verbal communication or names would be useless without the meaning behind it, whether I knew your full name or not, I wouldn't be able to find you unless I really got to know you behind several sounds cued by the combination of letters.

As was mentioned, welcome to the forum, I very much look forward to hearing more, follow our rules and we'll all get along fine.

Re: Hello everyone
Well I'll try to answer all your questions as best I can. First off It is my soul or astral body or whatever you want to call it that's the mix. The physical body I inhabit is very much human to my knowledge at least. When I say what I am I'm refering to the non-physical me.

How do I know what I am? Well it's a combination of scattered memories and of friends I trust giving me some information. I did question this stuff and I KNOW in my heart that this is what I am. You may call it belief if you want.

As to the astrals. There are different levels of the astrals. Terro, you are right that the astrals are largely energy related. However there are varying degrees of denseness if you prefer to think of it that way. The densest part is the closest thing to the physical and that's the part I'm talking about. It's much like the physical only not as dense and it's easier for magic to work. The part that you and others seem to operate in is less dense or a higher vibration and I won't try to talk about that part because I do not know that much about it. Now back to the lower astrals. There are different systems of governments just like there are on Earth. There are places where there are kingdoms and places where there are republic type systems. Now you'll find many things on the lower astrals like elves, fae, demons, weres, dragons, centaurs, and others. Being so close to the physical the lower astrals operate much like the physical with a little more freedom. While it's true that the higher up you go sex doesn't matter those in the lower astral do have sex. They also reproduce much like the physical. When I talk about the astrals I will pretty much always be refering to the lower astrals. That's what I'm most familiar with.

I hope that I have answered your questions.

Re: Hello everyone
if you are subscribing to the most common delineations and assertions of the Astral, the lower planes are associated with a lower energy "frequency" and usually baser instincts such as fear and anger, which is one possible explanation for near death experiences resulting in a memory of a hellish environment in some circumstances. These are also considered to be less organized than others given the propensity for animal-like emotion and action associated with base instincts. Although certain animals do display hierarchy in a pack type society, this would make up the exception rather than the norm as far as I could tell.

I usually do not honor most structure and organization of astral or consider it likely or credible based on the larger portion of the astral plane being comprised of the subconscious of the traveler. I could fully believe in my head that I am Michael Jackson, and if so, I will appear as such when astrally traveling. I could encounter something frightening, my mind might associate that fear aspect and represent it in my mind's eye as an IRS agent, where someone else might represent it as a clown.

Haha, that'd be awesome, Terro.

For some reason, I have the image of wandering around in a dumpster-filled alleyway where people are in cardboard boxes and there are others searching for food. As I watch these poor people and walk cautiously through the alley, all of a sudden, this clown pops out of thin air about ten feet in front of me.

I don't know about you, but that clown, in such a non-clowny place, would make me laugh like crazy xD.

... Until everyone else turns into clowns, too! o.O

-shudders-

But I have yet to give you a proper welcome, Hanna.

Yes, everything you say *is* hard to believe. I'm not going to deny that. Doesn't make it impossible, it just means more work to convince me as to why it is as it is. Considering the amount of questions you're already receiving, I will probably already find some solace in your answers. I'll stall on the more in-depth ones.

So far, however, all I've heard you talk about is the astral. What effects on your everyday life does your otherkin qualities bring, if any at all? Does your otherkin self only kick in when you reach the astral plane?
