I'm hoping you can help me. A couple of weeks ago, a friend told me that there was a way to talk to my guardian angel by going into a relaxed, meditative state, and asking "Are you there?"
I didn't believe it would work, but I tried it anyway. Nothing happened, but that night, I was having a strange dream when I was "awakened" by a loud knock at my door. I sat up in my bed and went to ask "who's there?" and nothing would come out of my mouth but a hoarse whisper. I was still dreaming. Then I really woke up and my heart was pounding and then it felt like my bed was slightly trembling. That was on a Tuesday at 12:57am. The following Tuesday, I awoke at the same exact time to tapping on the wall next to my head. Again, it felt as though my bed was trembling. I didn't sleep that night and convinced myself that it was just my heart pounding that caused it. Then it happened 2 more times, once on a tuesday a half an hour earlier, and then on a friday. I tried looking at it logically the last time it happened. I felt the walls, the floor and the only thing that was shaking was my mattress. The heater is on the other side of my room.
My manager told me to stop burning incense in my room and maybe that would help. I stopped burning it for the past week and nothing has happened. I am scared though, especially after reading the web page on angels and demons in disguise. Please write back to me. If you can advise me, I would greatly appreciate it, and maybe be able to sleep with my light off for once.
You must be terrified! I am so sorry to hear about this series of events. From what you write, I conclude that you really are dealing with demons--and they are terrorizing you. This is where you inadvertently opened the door to them:

Actually, something DID happen. Your friend gave you very bad, very dangerous advice. The Bible gives us no instruction or allowance for contacting angels; when you opened yourself up to your "angel," it was an unholy angel who answered.
Jesus Christ is the only One who has power enough to make the terrorizing stop. The demons are afraid of Him and afraid of His blood. I suggest you pray a prayer entrusting yourself to Him as God's Son who loved you enough to die (shed His blood) for you. Then, address the demons out loud by telling them they have to leave in Jesus' name. You can also say, "I am protected by the blood of Jesus Christ."
Here's the deal, though. If you haven't trusted Christ to save you, from either your sins or this situation, you have no authority to use Jesus' name and there will be no power behind your words. The words are not magic; the power is in a true relationship with Jesus, where He protects you because you have entrusted yourself to Him.
If you have never trusted Christ as your savior, please read here for a full explanation of what it means: The Most Important Decision of Your Life.
Let me know how you're doing, OK?
