One hard fact about awakening as otherkin. Depending on your perception of your beliefs and knowledge and connection to your prior or perceived form, you are probably going to miss it a lot, who wouldn't miss flying around or causing havoc on another world or reality, or the lost relationships and memories of a forgotten life. But, as well, we are all reminded of the harsh fact that those realities are gone, there is no going back.
But, through artistic expression, drawing, writing, poetry, game design, role playing, creative video collages, and so forth, we can at least in a sense seek to portray ourselves as we perceive we once were, we can seek to connect with what we have lost through the creation and observation of artistic expression of that which we feel we once were, and may still feel like on the inside.
So draw, write, read, create, and seek the creativity of others, it has the potential to strengthen our connection and give us balance in the expression of what we feel we are as otherkin. (Summation, go search a crap load of art online and see if and how it stimulates your beliefs.)
