Furry Fandom--Spirituality

This is one of the main reasons for why I generally dislike the fandom.

I loved Alice in Wonderland, why do they have to do that?!?

The thing that really did it for me was the old Disney movies I adored when I was little. I thankfully have not seen anything involving Alice in Wonderland yet, but I'm sure I'll trip over it one of these days...

I do find that anthro art has been the best way for me to truly present my spiritually self, but I've never felt anything like an animal spirit being apart of myself. I do enjoy studying totems though and I would be interested in seeing some spiritual anthro clubs as well.

I about 1/4ths Cherokee, Algonquin and Crow, most of it comes from my father's side.
Most of the stull I learned about shamanism and totems was from a native himself..

Aside the point, I am here for teh artz and stuff. My spirituality is separate from it.

Exactly why I'm here too. My spiritual beliefs lend a certain interest to the fandom, and I'll draw art relating to it (its far from furry though), but its definitely not part of it.

I don't really know what to say to be honest. As I had mentioned I had gone around therian and Otherkin forums enough to be curious about my spiritual element and I know enough about Shamanism to know where the idea comes from.

I enjoy howling and growling and snarling and all that stuff and sometimes I do feel quite animalistic. That said, I do not do those things because because I believe I am channeling a, say, wolf or because I believe I was one in a past life. I just do because I feel like doing so. I obviously like wolves hence it is a primary choice for a fursona and I do consider myself a somewhat spiritual person but I doubt any behaviour or feeling signifies something spiritual.

I'm spiritual to a point, it's how i figured out my spiritual name and adapted it to my fursona who i believe is an extension of myself.

I used to act like a dog-dog (barking, itching, howling) up until I was 13. LOL But not anymore, because that is socially unacceptable, and silly.

But I do hold my "fursona" close to me because I am who I am, and...that's that. LOL

Hamburger time.
I automatically growl when I pick up some weird vibes, and I murr when relaxed, sometimes even in my sleep.
