27-year-old Naia Okami from Seattle sees herself, not as a human, but as a wolf in human skin.
Appearing in a segment on British TV show ‘This Morning’ recently, Okami told hosts Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes that she identifies spiritually, rather than physically, as a wolf.
“I don’t physically believe I am a wolf,” she said. “It’s more a spiritual and psychological identification as a wolf, like I’m totally aware I’m human… but by the same token, spiritually I am a wolf.”
“I think a lot of people have a misconception that I think I am physically a wolf and obviously I don’t. I have a serious job, I pay my bills and taxes this is just how I spiritually express myself.”
Her fascination with wolves – and in particular the British Columbian wolf – began at an early age.
“It started with dream shifting,” she said.
“That is when I had a dream of myself as a wolf and I could view myself in some of these dreams. I could see myself as an observer, in some of these dreams I was acting as a wolf.”
“I went from that to looking more about actual wolves, real life wolves.”
“The more I looked, the more and more I began to identify in that way.”
