I am not religious, and neither is my family, also this may not be a huge, amazing experience, but to me it is and for me the start of something great.
I have been wanting to communicate with my Guardian Angel for a long time now, but never knew how to do so. During the past week, I had a nightmare that really spooked me, so badly I hated being in the dark and kept waking up at night. Last Wednesday evening, I started looking up Guardian Angels (I can't remember what triggered it, but now I think it might have been a message), and during my search I came across a prayer.
Angel of God,
My guardian dear,
To whom God's love
Commits me here,
Ever this day,
Be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.
That night I wrote it down on a piece of paper and put it on my bedside table. Later, I went to bed, turned my lamp off and tried to get comfortable. However, the nightmare from earlier still haunted me badly. So, I grabbed the piece of paper with the prayer on it, and rolled back over to sleep. What surprises me is how calm I became when I settled down. That night was first best nights sleep I had since the nightmare.
The next day, I brought my self a little angel statue and placed it on my bedside table along with the prayer. Also reading that Guardian Angels are tidy and organized (unlike me), I started to clean my room after knocking over my drink that was on my bedside table. The drink also went over my new statue too! But I have a feeling it was my angel again.
Ever since then before I turn my lamp off to sleep, I ask my angel to look after me when I sleep. And since, I have been sleeping really well. I am also beginning to feel a presence too, especially after I speak to my angel. When I settle to sleep, I sense the presence behind me.
