I have pads on my feet. The toes and the sole just beneath them are very calloused (I don't walk that much, so I don't know why they're like that  ':.' ). I also tend to walk around on my toes most of the time (only around the house, of course), and it takes about three hours for me to find a new pair of shoes that fit just right. ^_^ I think I may also have wings (moreso attributed to the fact that the angels that I draw appear so beautiful and graceful compared to my other drawings/paintings).

I've 'felt' wings and a tail since I was a very small girl. Let's see... I must've been younger than 13 because we were still living on Norway street, when I read some Angel book my mother had. It outlined imagining wings on yourself as part of a meditation exercise. By assosiating the wings with inner power, during times of trial and strife you could summon the feeling up again and be strengthened.

There was a lot of mumbo jumbo in there, but I latched onto that idea and quickly adopted it. I would imagine an invisible friend grooming them while I was bathing, and stretch them wide or hunker them if I was angry or felt threatened. I've been in love with down comforters, and have to sleep with one every night in order to feel the weight upon my back, an have something to tuck my nose under. I was a strange kid. :P

Being as I always identified more with animals than angels, a tail soon followed. (I mean, who doesn't love tails?) That odd combo eventually led to me adopting the Gryphon aspect of me, about three years ago now.

((She's not an anthro, so I use the batty form whilst here.))

Hate to break it to you, dear, but phantom body parts are extremly common and are almost certainly evidence of an overactive imagination rather than a past life as an animal. Don't get too excited.

I am merely presenting a dose of reality where it is due. I understand that for some...it can be hard to swallow.

As a firm believer in reincarnation, and borrowing a bit from Hindu cross-species rebirth (though my beliefs really can't be traced to any one 'source,' ) I'd say that it is quite possible every single person in the whole world has at one point or another inhabited an animal form. Hell, with the animal-human ratio on the earth at this very moment, and if each one possesses a soul, I think it's more than likely.

Are phantom parts indicative of this? Well there's absolutely no proving it. However, there's no proving with any kind of absolute certainty the opposite is true either- that's it's NOT indicative of a bit of 'leftover' from a past life. From my point of view, it is more likely that so many people get them, because whether they know it or not, so many people HAVE existed as an animal.

It's the same for children who are born talented in one area- creative or otherwise. Is it something special about his or her brain? Could the progedy have memories from another existance? What about unexplainable phobias?

As in just about anything else that involves something resembling spirituality (especially that of another person, who's theories should be respected and not shot down out of hand with 'almost certainties,' ) I retain judgement.

I'll say only this:

Building up a web of spiritual beliefs based on such a tenuous lead is extremely risky. As such, I am hesitant to encourage certain beliefs when the person in question does not appear to have put much thought into them [apologies, Simba,] as should they persue those beliefs, fully believing in them with all their heart and soul, only to discover that in the end it was all a trick of the mind...their downfall will be painful.
I speak from personal experience, as I think you know, Rezz..

I completely respect the beliefs of those who have spent the time exploring and working out their spirituality in order to come to such conclusions. But I do NOT advocate the hasty formation of a set of beliefs without the individual having taken the time to thoroughly think them through beforehand.

I believe the more positive route is to not DISCOURAGE the possible formations of new beliefs (at some point, all of them start out as uninformed feelings.) I think it would be more instructive to ENCOURAGE the further research of such a theory.

Again, I come back to the original quote:

That appears to me to be postulation and possible interest, not a sudden declaration of a new spiritual direction for the person in question. I would agree with you whole heartedly if Simba said, "We all have phantom limbs. Obviously we WERE all animals in our past lives and I now base my belief system on this sudden revelation." As it is no such thing, I don't agree with your approach. However, I'm going to pack it in and step out of the conversation. It's a bit of a moot point, and only quasi-related to the topic at hand.

And no, I didn't know until I tried to figure out why you said that. Sirius tipped me off you were around/active, and may have told me your username, but I promptly forgot. Apologies.

I walk barefoot at every opportunity, and have now got some pretty obvious pawpads going on there--the balls of my feet and the heels are rougher than my mate's!  Thanks to my stupid, stupid, stupid, STUPID skin, however, I have had an impossible time finding any way to reduce the callusing.  Someone said to "try pumice", which didn't do a thing but rip my skin up every which way it wasn't supposed to.  Someone said "try lotion" which only served to not soak up like it was supposed to and make me slip on several different occasions.  Then there was "rosewater" which didn't do anything but give them a pretty-smelling bath.  Then someone suggested a whole rash of products which I couldn't use because I need hypoallergenic stuff 90% of the time.  So now I've just kinda given into the fact that no matter how much I try to salvage soft skin out of the bottoms of my feet, it's not gonna happen.

Much like someone else who posted on this thread, I have an IMPOSSIBLE time finding comfortable shoes, and heaven forbid someone asks me to wear high heels or something, because there's some major agony happening there--I have wide feet, and bad knees, so not only do I not have the ability to wear heels that don't look like I snitched them from grandma, the constant false-heel-stick-thing on the shoes stopping my foot out of nowhere gives me knee problems for days after.  And, I just all-out hate them, they're quite silly things, especially the ones with the stupidly long pointed toes that go past where your actual toes are by like an inch or two--I don't see the purpose of that particular high-heel style, they make your feet look funny and disproportioned.  I can walk digitigrade style on my bare feet though, because my heels are free to go up and down as much or as little as I like.  I can't run in heels because the feeling of being on my toes but being connected to the ground all the way across somehow confuses me, but I can go at a decent clip without shoes and walking digitlike.
Meh.  *shrug*

This point is debatable...though I do (for the most part, I think,) agree with you on it. However, it's fairly redundant as I *chose* not to use that method in favour of something...different.

And I do think that going from "phantom paws" to "perhaps we were all animals in a past life" is still rather a big leap.

Apology accepted... though I do not believe one was required. :}

I have rock/dirt roads where I live and I walk around outside constantly without shoes or socks so I feel like I have pads on my feet.

'Phantom Parts' you call them eh? I prefer the term 'Etherial Manifestation' but then thats just my own phrase, so I'm probably very much biased.
Most commonly I feel my tail or wings. The wings are a more recent thing and seem to have a will all there own. The tail I have felt since I was too small to even understand what it meant, it got so 'real' at one point I could actually feel pain from it when placed in a posission that caused it discomfort.

I do consider myself wolf, from research into various religions and beleives, from my own visions and dreams, from the feelings in my heart and from speaking to others about the subject. I will not go into my opinions on Otherkin, as they are somewhat negative not from experiance in person but from events observed and information gathered since first I heard of them.

You can call this 'imagination', your welcome to, I've pondered that possibility myself, but for me it is just a day to day reality that has become part of my unimportant little existance. However, its probably worth pointing out I wont be responding to anyone. Such things are, to my mind, simply not up for debate unless I know you well enough. I hope this will be respected, though I can't say I much care either way.

my feet have really thick calluses from going barefoot in the summer and wearing heavy work boots in the winter....I can walk on gravel barefooted with no problems. '<img'>  My hands are tough, but most of the caluses/pads have been worn down.  I'm glad of that since they can be annoying at times.
