Real Spiritual Experiences

My Guardian Angel... Or Not


My Name is Hannah and this happened to me when I was about 12 or 11. I became very interested in angels, spirits, and Gods works. I found out that every human being has a guardian angel and I got all excited and I learned how to contact mine. I was sitting on my bed praying to God and to my Guardian angel. I asked him/her to give me a sign if they are there now, let me tell you, I was very scared because I didn't know what would happen and I also heard that demon could disguise themselves as angels and I didn't want that.

While I was in my bed praying I felt a presence with me in the room, but I was in the room all alone. The presence was warm and happy but for some reason I got very scared and I stopped and right after I stopped, the presence went away. My cousin, brother, and 3 of my sisters did this and they said it worked for them. My cousin said she was touched and when she came to tell me, she was giggling with the a smile on her face but she was a little shaky. My brother who did it said he was touched lightly and both of my sisters just felt a presence, but I'm not sure if I'm just over reacting. I have asked my guardian angel to give me more signs like a feather or for him/her to tell me their name but nothing happens, so I decided to leave the topic about guardian angels but I was still interested.

Ever since I gave up it has been so hard for me to believe in them again. How can I know if it was and actual angel or just my imagination?

A monk once saw an 'angel' in his room, and it said to him: 'GOD sent me to tell you that you are very holy in His eyes!' Then the monk did the sign of the cross on himself and said: 'Lord Jesus, who am I to see a holy angel?' Then the 'angel' squealed like a pig, and dissappeared, leaving behind a stench like rotten eggs! Don't ask to see an angel, because instead you might see a demon in disguise! But we should definitely pray to angels! They are very powerful! Timfaraos [at]

Spiritual experiences often are vague and transient, that is why it is possible to negate their existence by intellectual tricks although almost everyone has had some of them;
And most of them are NOT reproducible by one's effort or will but remain unique, that is why it is said God gives them by mercy, as a gift.

If it be necessary for you it could even happen that you see your angel clearly, as some report in WWW or in books. But "it" will never make itself visible just for giving "proof", or for feeding curiosity.

Keep believing in your guardian angel although you got no proof of "its" existence beyond that transient feeling of presence and warmth you had only once. It is said in New Testament that "blessed are those who can believe without a Vision". Furthermore, how could it benefit you to doubt your angel's existence?
Well, it is still "modern" to kick out verbally at persons who "think too romantic", to negate God, the Soul, and the existence of spirits,
And if you choose the path of Superficiality i.e. If you want to be "cool" and thus believe and do what is called "cool" you will learn to kick out at all good dreams, even your own, belying yourself in the usual "modern" way, which means to think "Dreams are unreal, Dollars are real."
But this path of "Coolness" leads into Darkness. And I suppose that it won't remain "modern" for much more time. Thus better stand by your "romantic dreams" about having a guardian angel, and rely on this angel. Ask "it" (angels are not male nor female) for counsel if you are in doubt whether some plan of yours, or some person round you, is good or bad. And if you get some answer (which will most of the time be only an ordinary good idea, not a voice from heaven or a vision) do respect it and do try to follow it. Then your angel will keep helping - more and more.
