I've been talking with my Elven friend about my Elven past lives. She asked how I believe I am Otherkin. I told her spiritually and through past lives. I don't feel like I'm a direct decedent of an Elf. My friend is far more Elven than me. I do remember my past lives, but what about the others? Most people say I remind them of Fey. I get Faery gifts, I have a faery costume, I own books about them, I work with them spiritually...why don't I think of myself as Fey? Its so confusing. Maybe because I have too much information about all my past lives, the Human ones included. There's no means for me to prove to myself or to other people. Maybe I just have a soul that enjoys different experiences, though I've been on Human repeat for a few centuries.
I am not sure of the point of remembering these things. But my Grandmother shines down in approval from wherever she went after she died. I feel like she's watching over my sister and I. When I saw her smiling face floating above my feet a few days ago, I felt it was her way of saying I am on the right track.
I'm not going to give up on the Elves, but I'm going to try and focus on being Fey. Maybe it just comes naturally to me. And the Tuatha de Danann were said to have diminished into faery beings. The Sidhe. I must explore this further.
