Any advice on questioning being a therian or otherkin?

I have recently been feeling that I may identify with, or as a elf otherkin. I also feel that I may be one spiritually. I may be a therian aswell, Im starting to believe that I could have been one in my past life, and deep down I still am one. Do any elf otherkins, or otherkins/therians in general have advice or help? Asher had recommended to ask kinmunity about it.

I'm not kin, but when I feel lost, I ask myself a ton of questions and meditate on them. It helps to write it down along with the answers you come up with. You can make a list of why you think you might be elf and therian and then question every point. Like how strongly each reason is related to elves and therians. It's a start.

Note that if you find out your otherkin, your kintypes, or theriotypes, aren't always gonna match your expectations. You could end up finding out your a mouse, but you need to accept that. It's not always gonna be a cool animal or creature.

I recommend meditation to help your problems, since you aren't explaining this very well, it's hard to understand your perspective so I am struggling to help you out. Not meant to be rude, apologies if your offended.
Meditation helped me during questiong my theriotypes.

I'm just gonna say what I've learned some years ago watching Chowder on cartoon network that has stuck with me as a recurring life lesson. "taste it and find out!" You could be, or you very well may not be, but while you've got the time and you've got the energy now, why not try it out? put on some elf ears or elf attire, go foraging out in the woods, read up on some magick or elven history, do you whatever your kintype does and see if it really fits you. I'm not like an expert in otherkins or alterhumans, but there's really no harm in just getting into what your kintype might be and just feeling around in there. and if in the end, you don't think its right for you, well, at least you tried and now you know for sure?

Finding out who you are and to pinpoint your kintype or therian type can be a great task and it takes some time, patients and introspection. You most likely won't be able to rush through it.

I would suggest to do some meditation, research on elfes and other beings and do introspection and question yourself to seek answers .
But don't be too disappointed when it turns out that you are not the type you expected to be.
Take your time to figure yourself out and try some different ways like meditation, questioning, do research and see if it fits you.
Also, maybe take a look at some of the articles in the menu.

I wish you all the best on your journey of self exploration.

I'll try that later tonight, I feel that I could be a therian more then a otherkin though. Thanks for the help!

It also bears great mention, @KaiXD, the difference between identifying as and being something in these categories. It is a nuanced yet significant detail, because affiliating with and creating a deep personal bond with something is a very different experience than manifesting that thing from within. The former is external, the latter internal, and while both become internalized , both do not begin this way.

My suggestion would be, seeing as there are a number of others already, would be to decide and feel put which case it is. It is more or less an untold super-fundamental of the whole gathered nature of these topics.

What really helped me when i was questioning my nixie kintype, was getting questioned by my friend Pearl. By them asking me questions, I was able to think about things in a way I wouldn't have. If you ever want any help with that, feel free to DM me ^^
