Hello
I am a angelkin, specifically an Abyssal Seraphim (my dark 'mercury' like energy and six wings). I do not believe in any sort of deities and instead prescribe to the idea of the respective 'Sources' being liken to Gestalt Collective Consciousness functioning similar to a Parlimentary system where members vote subconsciously or consciously on things pertaining to the members.

I am only aware of seraphim (singular seraph, as far as I know) in the context of Christian/Biblical mythology.

If you don't believe in any sort of deity, why do you identify as an angel from a mythology based around a very specific deity? Or are you using "seraphim" in some other sense?

Re: Hello
I'll say what I say to every new seraphim:

With all the supposed seraphim here incarnated/whatever, who the heck is running things up there?

Anyways, welcome.

Re: Hello
That's why I chalk up things to reasonable doubt Chris. I for a while thought I was a Seraphim.

A great number of people also state that they are Archangels, or that they were there for the Fall of the Morning Star, or that they were some other rare and ancient thing... unfortunately we cannot understand our own subconscious or what crops up. So I take everything with a grain of salt, we're raised with so many different beliefs and texts and stories that who really knows what happened, and any "true" memory from a past life is colored by the actions and knowledge we have in this life.

The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

Re: Hello
It isn't that I identify as a biblical Seraph, but instead identify vaguely with the appearance. The six wings aspect, if there is a 'celestial' type of being with six wings and there is a biblical name created that describes a six-winged creature, then instead of renaming the wheel I just adopted the term. It doesn't mean that I believe any of what is written, just using a term to describe an appearance.
In regards to what I wrote earlier. I am still spiritual in that, I recognize energetic beings and spirits, however, I do not believe in a higher power. To me that sounds like a spiritual Darwinistic dictatorship. As Mikhail Bakunin said, "If God existed it would be necessary to abolish him".
Basically it isn't that decisions aren't made outside of the material realm, but it is that they are made by all members of a Source. When I speak of a Source I merely am using the term my friend used in description of angelkin (once again the term Angel is used to describe something similar to be in appearance). The Source is kinda like a 'link' that you share with other members of the source. Some angelkin have a very 'fluffy, cotton candy-like energy' as has been described, and it could be argued that there might be a similarity in source origin based off the likeness in energy composition.
The Source functions in the way that, sitting here I am still putting my input in whether it be subconscious or conscious and 'voting' on certain things in regards to my Source, like member A is to do duty A, all in favor?
That also means that whatever is decided does not have to be followed out by any member it is all a choice. To say that there is some omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent Big Brother hanging out in the cosmos working us all like pawns seems utterly absurd to me. In fact, I once tried to believe in God and I could not. To me it is like trying to believe that Cinderella is real, it is just a fairy tale.
I hope my long post in response helped.

Re: Hello
For some angels, source was not a single creationist entity, but more of a collective interchange of consciousness - think of the Borg consciousness from Star Trek: Voyager. The Borg are not ruled by a single consciousness, but instead operate in a form of consensus. Some pieces of the collective may take on certain leadership or guidance roles, but is still part of the greater existence/discussion/sharing/flow. For such an angelkin, it does not fit to say they belong or believe in a "higher power" because they are all equal, and there fore no one his higher than the other.

Also, Abrahamic faiths are not the only ones with angels, angelic-like beings, servitors to the will of the divine or source. Just as their are different types of energy, and different interactions with their ebb and flow, there is more then one source.

Someday, you'll learn how to pray,
And someday, you'll want to be saved,
But there's no way, now,
You're goin' home...
