    That's to bad I was sort of interested in your results. Though I personaly do not see how someone could refute your conclusion. Challenge them or you perhaps in your conclusions or deductions but maybe that is just my age and background speaking for we were all taught to question everything.

    I could swear I put a reply in here right after monosoleedra(sp!!), booo!
    Internet ate my post!

    well in a nut shell...I was going to say I agreed about the therein element being completely different than a totem animal/spirit guide.
    I am one of those who beleive my soul is not human.
    mine I beleive is distinctly canine,but not wolf....I'm pretty certain I'm more like a feral dog or stray dog. untamed,but living near to or among civilization.
    couches are comfy and junk food is yummy,but leashes and collars I'm not interested in.
    etc.
    and yes I've always known....but for a time thought I was wolf,but it never felt right.
    anyhow....hope this reply sticks.

    Giving you helpful information to clarify your feelings is not meant to just shoot you down, it's meant for you to critically think about your experiences.

    I've known for years that my soul is not human. I am Otherkin. Just exploring now what kind of Otherkin I am. Apparently I've had numerous past lives that are coming through now.

    Well, I suppose, at the risk of being "challenged", which I don't like at all, by the way.

    I did the meditation which chthonic_me suggested. I basically entered a trance, and I called out telepathically to all of my animal guides: "If there are any of my animal guides who are a part of me, would you please make yourself known." I felt a presence then of an animal, and I knew it was one of my very powerful totems that's been with me my whole life: the Wolf. He was large and grey and had these piercing yellow eyes. The wolf spoke to me the entire time he was there, though now I cannot remember what was said. He basically spoke me through the meditation. For some reason when I'm in trance I cannot remember dialogue, this applies to dreams sometimes as well.

    For the second phase of the meditation, the wolf came up and sat directly in front of me, and this is when I had my first ever phase-shift. I felt fur cover my entire body, including my face. That was a strange sensation, something I've never felt before. I felt claws come out of my fingers, ears out of the top of my head, and a tail. This phase-shift lasted for a while, as I stayed in meditation and enjoyed the sensation.

    I did not plan on a certain animal, though going into this I had a pretty good idea who was going to show up. I tried to keep an open mind. Also the p-shift was completely out of the blue and it startled me. But the animal talked me through it.

    What it does for me is explains a lot, like my choice of career, some of my behaviors, and some of my fiercest beliefs. How is my life and practice going to change? I don't foresee it changing a whole lot, except perhaps bringing me closer to the wolf. There's not a whole lot an animal identity can serve anyone in a human society.

    Oh. I thought there was more to it than that. Don't most therians belief they will reincarnated as that animal? I figured that would be something you had considered? Also, what about the shamanic aspects? It just seemed like it'd be a huge commitment in adjusting how you view the world and relate to it and how your animal soul fits into the spiritual framework you work with.

    But if its just a matter of being able to say that you're a wolf and life goes on, that's cool.

    I'm not sure if it's reincarnated as that animal or if it's a past life thing. I tend to think it's probably a past-life carry over. It would explain why I carry so many of the wolf traits in my life now.

    Nothing would change in my spiritual beliefs. Since my beliefs are already nature based, animal friendly and environmentalist. Though now I may do things politically to "go to bat" for wolves more often. They seem to be the target of fear based campaigns, such as hunts and such.

    My boyfriend is a wolf. Though I feel reluctant to break the news to him. I know he wouldn't make fun of me or anything, it just feels weird to tell a wolf that his girl is a wolf too. :P
