Name: Here and now, I am Cassidy - most commonly just called Cass. My spirit name has been lost to me... it was once "Strattashyria", but I have died once in this lifetime. I don't know where mmy name has gone, or what it is, but I know I'll find it when I need to.
Location: New Hampshire
Phenotype(s): I call myself an "Everchanger" - I've never had just one animal, just one form, or even just one color. However I've always been very, very canine. I believe it's the energies in this lifetime, specifically, that makes myself so. And so I've identified strongly with the wolf, as well as domesticated dogs. I also resonate strongly with hawk, cat, and once, dragon, but dragon's time is past in my life.
What does therianthropy mean to you?:
It means... gosh, it means so many things. It's having a truly deep connection to one's inner soul and true 'self', beyond the human skin. The creature, or creatures, within you, in the best possible use of the term "creature".
What makes you sure you're a therian?:
There's no longer any way to deny it. I was 5 years old barking like a dog, hissing like a cat, growling and defending myself in a very inhuman way, despite the fact I wasn't raised with any pets whatsoever. Now that I've grown, I've experienced more than anyone could imagine, from out of body experiences in my soulform, dreams and revalations that have changed my life, and the fact that my mind... just doesn't work like the people in everyday society.
Do you ever "shift" (mentally; in your dreams)?:
Many, many times. The truer essence of myself is much more... calm, secure, and knows so much more than I do in this time and life. And then there's the defensive, more reckless part of my soul... I've learned to control those shifts by now.
If you could, would you change this about yourself?:
I wouldn't be me if I did, now would I? Why do such a thing? I'm accepted as I am now that i've grown, amazingly. I even have a therian mother. :)
What would you change about your phenotype, if you could?:
I'm an Everchanger... change happens anyways, I don't need to touch a thing.
There's so much more to me than this like you wouldn't believe. I'm a shamanistic pagan, and of native American blood, which flows beyond the flesh and into my soul. I don't even know how this is possible... it confuses me to this day. I've been aware
since I was 10 years old, though only truly awakened
for the past 4 years to both my soulform and the abilities I've held and inherited. I'm precognitive and sensitive to certain points, considering I've had no direction in anything. And empathy... ugh. Don't get me started.
I have a guardian spirit who's been unlocked for the past... 3 years, I think? I've lost count. You'll hear talk of "Halios" a lot. It's short for Svahalios'et, the dearest guardian I could ever ask for, even if he has an Earth-sized ego. http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/60105105/
This would be him...http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/52000970/
And this would be me, by the way. Hello. :)
I could go on, and on, and on, but I think I'll leave it there. Thanks for having me, and I look forward to meeting everyone here. :) You can talk to me via AIM: StrydeWolf
