Here is an anonymous question I received not too long ago:
"You believe in faeries... How do you feel about otherkin?"
For those of you who don't know, otherkin are people who identify as non-human, or partially-human. I think Wikipedia does a pretty good job of explaining this, so if you're curious or want to learn more I'll refer you to their article.
My answer required a little bit of backstory.
I believe in Faeries because I have seen them, met them, talked to them, and I’m slowly getting to know some of them. In fact, the majority of my guides either are Faeries, or they’re closely related to that realm.
And let me just say that it took me by surprise. I mean, when I started this journey I was hopeful that Faeries were real - but I wasn’t sure. I didn’t at all believe in Angels. And I appreciated mythological creatures for what I thought they were - just products of imagination. But in this line of work you get to meet a lot of Spirits, and so my horizon was very quickly blown wide open when I started to meet Faeries, Minotaurs, Trolls, Dragons, Angels, and Animal Spirits not on my Spiritual Team.
I believe in reincarnation, and that we live many lives. Not all of them are spent as human beings. Some lessons are best learned in other physical forms, or in no physical form at all (i.e. Faeries).
So, short answer, do I believe in the existence of otherkin? Yes.
I know you didn’t ask if I believed in otherkin…you asked how I felt about them. But I felt it was important to tell you that I believe that there are people who either have spent all previous lifetimes, or even just one, as something other than human.
How do I feel about otherkin?
I’ll be honest. That’s complicated. I feel that there are a lot of people out there who were definitely angels at one time, or who were faeries, or wolves. But I also think it’s at-once more common than people realize, and also rarer than people realize. Yeah, I know that doesn’t make much sense. I’ll try to explain.
What my guides are showing me is (actually a lot like that scene in X-Men where Xavier uses that…computer-room-thingy to look at all the mutants in the world hahahahahaa) lots of people, and almost all of them carry in their souls several lifetimes where they were not human. Now maybe 1-3% of the people they’re showing me have these big angel and dragon-shaped lights blooming out of them and rising up into the sky.
(Why are Angels and Dragons rarer? Because they are usually purely energetic beings - generally not able to take a physical form. If they’re choosing to incarnate into a human form, it’s because they have some serious work to do.)
I feel that being otherkin is…basically…being human. It’s what we’re here to do. To live a variety of lives so that we grow and help others to grow.
Look, I’m walking a fine line here, I realize. I’m not out to invalidate anyone’s experiences or beliefs. My complication with otherkin comes solely from the fact that I have an intense dislike for categorizing and divvying up souls.
I can’t stand the labels. Lightworkers. Indigo Children. Starseeds. Otherkin. Earth Angels. Whatever. All of that…it just puts up fences! It says - you, vanilla human, who has only had a human experience, you stay over there. Me? I’m an Earth Angel…I’m somehow more important. I’m different.
And that’s just not how it works.
We’re all here living human lives, having human experiences, whether we’re “lightworkers” or plumbers, it doesn’t matter! So wow, sorry to get a little incensed there. It’s complicated because I don’t like the label and the insinuation, not because I don’t agree with or like the person.
