How can you know that you are angel?
I'm new so I need some information..I'm not sure do I'm kin or not...so I want to ask you how can you know that you are angel? I have some dreams and I can't explain some things but I'm not sure in that I'm angel...I never fly..never see my wings ( I'm not sure in that I have one <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> )...so any help will be useful.
Thank you

Re: How can you know that you are angel?
It's impossible to tell if your spirit is actually angelic or if you're just a human with interesting ideas. I believe I was an energetic being that worked in service of a deity, but I could be wrong. Before I go around actively believing I'm something other than human, which in most people's books would instantly mean I'm crazy, I like to get as much confirmation as possible. Dreams may be part of the puzzle, but they're not the only part. If I were you I'd consider the possibility, but not jump on it just yet.

First of all, wings are not really symptomatic of being an angel . . . though they are symptomatic of the modern day sterotype of Judeo-Christian angels.

Second of all . . . I wouldn't ask "How do I know if I'm an angel?" at all. That's a very leading question and it's one that, at this stage, is almost certain to drag you down an unfortunate path.

You've found an otherkin forum, registered for it, and posted. So rather than asking if you're an angel - why not start earlier, and ask why you're here in the first place? All you've mentioned is that you've had some dreams. Everybody dreams. What's actually led you to join a forum of people who think they aren't totally human?

I agree with this post.

Also, the original Judeo-Christian angels had no wings, so if you don't have wings, that's 100% fine.

How I found out I was an Angel: I had a mental-breakdown in the shower and was crying and praying for whoever to help me with my life, help me with finding out what I was. Suddenly I felt this warm feeling in my chest (the only time I ever, ever, get this feeling is when I was praying as a child) and the word "angel" popped into my mind...Along with the fact that me and past life had split when I was child so I got to talk to him about it before we merged back together.

However, I fully agree with Motley that I can be some insane dude who heard voices in his head.

Re: How can you know that you are angel?
Personally, i suppose you can never *really* know. Personally i tend to feel its best to focus on what you *do* know, and work from there to what might be the most logical, keeping in mind that you don't know everything you might need to know.Keep in mind, you could just be someone with strange dreams as well- be open minded, and work on making connections- as opposed to making guesses.

Re: How can you know that you are angel?
You create some goalposts and throw things at them to see if anything flies.

What would you consider to be proof that someone was an angel? Given that you also have somewhat different information about yourself than you do about other people- both more and less in different ways- should that change your requirements in some way? How do you define angel, independent from yourself? Given your knowledge, would calling yourself an angel be useful? Why or why not?

Re: How can you know that you are angel?
I don't know what a proof is, but I need something else except the idea that I may be that. Why I think I'm angel? So I dreamed about people and things I never know. I have some vision or something and I never react actually... just watch and like prepare myself for something.. Sometimes I fill presence of somebody, and he didn’t do anything just I know is there... like visiting me. I never fill like I find my home here..I like my parents and my friends but that is not that.. I always fill like I'm waiting something to happen... Don't know what or when but will be. It is possible I to be just more sensitive person?

Re: How can you know that you are angel?
It's possible you're more intune with the intuitive side of yourself. It's possible that you're otherkin. Either way we cannot tell you, that's something you have to figure out for yourself. Poke around the forum, read articles by our members, there's a ton of information around here.

Re: How can you know that you are angel?
Truth is, years and years of careful thought and consideration can lead you to a position where you're "moderately" sure that you "were" X in a previous life.
