Probable Earth Elemental
Hello there, I'm Eternity. I'm an 18 year old female from Texas. Some of you may know me from other Otherkin sites, such as the Otherkin Community. Actually I joined this site bit ago, but I hadn't come back until now. =)

Well...my interests include learning (specifcially languages and ancient history--always fun), animals/nature, spirituality, art, literature, and a million other things. I like to stay active, but I also like my alone time.

To forestall the question "how did I come to the conclusion that I am Otherkin/was an elemental?"--

First, the Otherkin part: It was mostly a feeling, one that had been with me all of my life that I can remember, one that was there no matter the situation. A feeling of being different from a lot of other people, even though there were many times when I "fit" in. The people around me felt that I belonged, but I never did. Then of course, there were things that I could not explain, memories being prominent. I have had memories of other events that I couldn't account for in this life, all throughout this life. Human ones, and others that didn't seem to be human, but ones that I denied were anything else. Finally these memories, this feeling, and other things kind of closed in on me all at once, and I went to the 'net to surf for answers.

I'm still newly awakened, my definition that just being that it all finally clicked into place. I started organizing the thoughts, feelings, and memories, and something inside me told me that I was on the right track.

Then came trying to find out what I was. To be honest, I have jumped around a bit. I let my mind get carried away "oh this memory and that memory MUST be linked, oh and this new memory MUST be real." That sort of thing. But I realized (with help <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin --> ) that I wasn't going about it the right way. So I relaxed a bit on trying to remember things, and focused more on soul searching, remembering what I had already remembered and examining them, meditating, and researching. I came to the conclusion that I was once an Earth Elemental. Something inside me pointed me in that direction, and I searched myself for what I believed elementals to be like. Then I searched my nature, my kind of "second instincts" if you will. I saw that they matched, and it felt right. When I had thought that I was something else, I always had a large portion of doubt with it. This doesn't. This fits me. And I also started to realize that some of the memories that I had (and that came after this conclusion) seemed to justify it.

So why, if I am so sure, does it say "probable elemental" in my topic title? Because I don't believe that I can ever, really, truly be sure. But I believe that I am about as sure as I can get. But, alas, time will tell. I'm still going to turn it over in my head for a while to come, I expect.

But anywho, sorry this is so long <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink --> If you got through this, then kudos to you. I look forward to interacting, and hopefully helping some of you. I hope this will be a good experience.

Can you please describe more what earth elemental is like?

Re: Probable Earth Elemental
Good to see some familiar names, Miniar and Sera. Thanks for the welcomes everyone =)

reynevan, to answer your question:

Well, I can only speak from my own experience; I do not know what it was like for other incarnated elementals. That being said:

First and foremost, I was more of an energy being. I could take other shapes if I wished (when presenting myself to a physical being). That depended on what the being was expecting or could comprehend. For example, to a human, I would look something like a fairy. To a dog, I would be more of a spark of light. I don't recall any other shapes that I took, however.

As far as what I did- I was a sort of "protector" of plants, animals, and nature of a certain area. I didn't have any wonderful abilities to smite or anything like that, it was more of misleading and confusing those who tried to harm the area I protected. I also helped the life there. This part is very hard to explain, as I can't really comprehend it with my now human mind, but an example would be somehow "helping" a plant to grow towards the sunlight.

I was a representation of that place, and I shared it with other elementals. I have little memory of communicating with other elementals, but from what I can gather, we didn't have any sort of spoken language among ourselves. It was something of a cross between being psychic and empathic. For the most part, we had to be in the immediate vicinity of others to be able to communicate, although we could send a brief "message" if something was wrong. We couldn't travel far outside our area though.

There was also a kind of "music" that I distinctly remember. It wasn't literally heard, more like it was felt. And it wasn't always there. I'm not sure what the purpose of it was, though.

And as far as moving, although I had winglike apendages, I didn't actually use them for flying. As far as I can tell, that's where I took my energy from. We kind of floated and flitted around using our own energy.

Hope that helps?

Re: Probable Earth Elemental
Well, for me, it is more like spiritual knowledge about what I am. See more info in my introduction thread, if you are intersted, I described that already there.

I have fixed (more or less) shape as an energy being and definitely no wings <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> I don't have much memories as you about life in astral plane, so sorry, I can't tell you more <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Maybe I am completely different being as you.

Re: Probable Earth Elemental
Well the hard thing about some of the kin types, and specifically earth elementals in this case, is that one label can cover so many different kinds of beings. I've researched what people think fit into this category, and I've seen everything from giants to fae to hobgoblins and fauns. Because of that, its no wonder that we might be under the same category, but so very different. No worries there.

And about the memories, I actually don't have that many, and the longest one was only a few minutes. The thing is, that they had enough in them for me to gather this information.

But yeah, I'l definitely go check out your intro.

Thanks for the interest, and taking the time to respond. =)
