This might be wrong Forum which is on par for me..

I believe very strongly I have a Guardian Angel watching me or "someone". Or I don't believe, I know. Anyway, sometimes I can't feel its presence and it scares me. Are there any other ways of finding closeness without meditation? Or do they withdraw when one doesn't need guidance?

Edit: title should say "out of touch". My Virgo Asc was twitching at that one..

I'm tempted to move this to Uni-versal Codes as these seems purely metaphysical (dealing with spirits) and having nothing to do with religion (spiritual journeys, faith, visions of divine forces, etc). Nevertheless, some people do consider guardian angels religious (as opposed to a concept built into many religions) so I'm not certain yet.

As for what Guardian Angels do and how they act, that depends on which specific religion (and even denomination) or occult tradition you belong to. And I'm more curious why this presence scares you. (Are you sure it's an angel?)

If you're Eastern Orthodox or Catholic then your priest and the right icon (and note the symbols within it) should be very helpful as they have a well defined hierarchy of angels so in a sense you could appeal to this higher ranking angel in your spiritual journey. I know the Russian Orthodox have prayer books for praying to your own personal guardian angel (as well as to other saints and angels), daily if you wish it, and maybe that would be helpful to you. Ah, I found an Online example of an Eastern Orthodox prayer:

http://www.saintgregoryoutreach.org/2010/01/guardian-angel-prayers-for-protection.html

OTOH if you believe your angel is more just watching out for you without much care of religion then I suppose going somewhere contemplative (or does that count as meditation to you?). This could be natural beauty as much as man made beauty, but something to lift your spirits. Generally speaking most people think of angels as "higher vibrations" which are the vibrations of love, compassion, and things like that. I'd think meditation would help, just long enough to ask for an alternative.

Personally, if this angel is kindly to you then I don't see why you can't ask this angel to leave your presence if you feel uncomfortable, perhaps giving a "safe word" for "come" or "depart." After all, if it's against your will (or even without your permission) then it's not really protection but more of a psycho-stalker thing and perhaps you need an exorcist of sorts more than a way to get closer.

Do you have any idea why this angel is present in your life?

Btw, I couldn't but help think of this scene from Maleficent:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVN64QuxQUc

It cut off before it shows the delicious shock of the fairy who had cursed Princess Aurora being mistaken for her fairy godmother, and how the naive princess says how she always felt her presence and keeping her from danger...though it was, interesting enough, to keep her alive so that a curse could be fulfilled to punish the girl's father. Interesting (and perhaps a plot hole) that when Maleficent decided to revoke the curse and do all that she could to keep the curse from coming to pass (in short she became her fairy godmother after all) that she was unable to do so...as if the fairy witch herself was possessed by the power of her own curse...(actually, I saw that movie as poetry of sorts, Disney is definitely getting better IMO).

ETA: deleted as I'd read "can't" as "can" and thus misunderstood.

Thanks

What I mean is that there is a "vibration", presence, angel, whatever, surrounding me and it guides me through various aspects in life. I don't want to delve too deeply into what aspects because there are so many but it all started when we had a Pink Moon in Scorpio. 2012 I think. Sh1t went crazy after that. Dreams...visions..super heightened senses and many times I knew things were happening to people, mostly bad things, just not when or where, and ever since I have known that something is always around me. I can almost "call" on humans and within days they appear through sms, email or just out of the blue.

It comforts me to know something is out there, something bigger than us, but I would be lying if I said that it doesn't scare the crap out of me! I have done some very very bad things in my life, been pushed to the edge-by myself or others, but always managed to recoup-only to be pushed to the limit again.

What I was wondering was that some days I can't feel this presence and it makes me feel alone. I don't want it to vanish but figured that maybe I am not in need of "guidance" those days?

I am not religious but I am very spiritual. I don't belong to any churches. The only "organized belief system" I believe in is astrology.

Generally speaking, symbols are good for attuning to spiritual forces. If you can come up with a symbol that represents this angel then that should help (perhaps you could put this symbol by your bed).

"In between" places are also good for finding ways to connect to spiritual forces, especially those that transform. Crossroads are a classic, but also beaches (between land & sea), mountains (earth & air), and the like. Caves are often good as well.

In my own experience, they go away when our vibration changes. I think we attract different kinds of spirits according to our vibration. There is this one ďmaleficientĒ spirit which appears in my bedroom whenever Iím in a negative mood for a long time. It goes away when Iím in a positive mood. (It just made itís presence known as I was typing this) Try to notice the differences between the days when you can feel itís presence and the days when you canít feel itís presence. Try to notice the differences between your emotional, mental and physical state during those days. Then, try to maintain the state which attracts that spirit.
