"Derek, I have to share this touch of heaven with you. I have a clump of steel wool I use to clean tarnished medals. After using the steel wool one day, I placed it on the corner of my desk in case I had to use it again.
The next day, during my morning exercise, I started to think of angels. I don't know why. I guess I was thankful for living another day. I questioned if angels were real...if they are here to guide, show, and comfort us? I let it go at that, just questions.
After I got home I decided to check my email. I sat at my desk, glanced at the steel wool I placed on the corner the night before—and lord and be hold—I could not believe my eyes.
I guess it’s their way in validating what I was asking! The way it was positioned, I felt it was sending me a message. Now—because of my revelation—I do not question if angels are real. They do hear us and answer our prayers." —Aaron, Hawaii
Aaron, your experience efficiently illustrates how angels appear in our lives— through a kind of peripheral vision.
Angels love to validate positive thoughts and actions, and your intuition will lead you to your angel's messages. If they communicate symbolically, perhaps there are a few more perceptions that can be gleaned from your story.
Let it not be lost on you that this angel first popped to your mind while you were exercising and expressing gratitude.
Steel wool represents an instrument for cleaning, erasing any worn-on grime. It also helps smooth and polish wood, works of art, and symbols of pride.
This Angel seems to be watching over your desk work, encouraging you to have pride in it. She may draw your attention to any creative, cleaning or preservation projects. And perhaps suggest exhibiting them? Look to be recognized for your achievements.
