I am sure that you have heard of the “Law of Attraction”? It suggests that by focusing on positive or negative things you can bring those things into your life. Simply put, it says like attracts like in life. It is also based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy. Research with brain imaging done by Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Srini Pillay has found that this is a real phenomenon.
When you begin to focus on what you want and desire you will see the Law of Attraction is working by recognizing these 8 signs. These signs may start subtly. In fact many people miss them or mistake them as just a coincidence. Below are the 8 signs that the Law of Attraction is working for you so that you can start watching out for them.
Sign 1: Visual Prevalence
The first sign is that you will start seeing what you desire everywhere. For example, if you are focusing on getting a new car, then you will begin to see it everywhere. You will see more people driving the car that you desire on the highway. When you watch television you will start seeing ads for cars repeatedly. You will see images of what you desire in magazines and on the internet. This is a sign that your desire is beginning to manifest itself. It also gives you the opportunity to see different options, color choices, sizes, so that you can refine your focus to be more precise about what you desire.
Sign 2: Audio Prevalence
Next you will start hearing about your desire everywhere. In the coffee shop you will hear people talking about what you desire. On the radio, advertisements related to your desire will play. It will seem like you cannot escape from what you really desire. The manifestation of your desire is getting stronger. You are beginning to hear others opinions to help you focus on how you will feel when you have manifested your desire. The “Law of Attraction” is attracting people who had similar desires or already own what you desire.
Sign 3: Touching the Desire
Now you will find yourself in situations where you can touch the object of your desire. For example, if your desire is a computer you may have a vendor come by your work offering free demonstrations of computers. It is in this stage that the Universe is giving you a chance to touch and test the object of your desire. It is asking you if you are certain of exactly what you want. At this point you can continue to reaffirm your positive thoughts or change them to a different option. “The Law of Attraction” is bringing all of the options to you to touch and test out. You can use this to focus your mental picture to help the “Law of Attraction” work for you quicker.
Sign 4: Happiness
Suddenly you will start to feel happier than normal and feel more contented. You will not be able to pinpoint the cause, but the feeling is undeniable. This is the universe comforting you and letting you know that what you desire is being manifested. At this stage many consider doing something unrelated to their design since they are confident that the universe is manifesting the object of their desire. However, I would encourage you to stay on course. Remember, “like attracts like”. If you change your focus, then the object that you seek may drift away because you no longer want it as much. Watching for signs of the “Laws of Attraction” working for you can provide valuable warnings to you of when you need to refocus your attention. If the signs begin to disappear then consider taking time to refocus on what you seek to attract.
Sign 5: Excitement
As noted by Dr. Pillay, our brain function follows the “Law of Attraction”. As the “Law of Attraction” is working for you, your brain’s neurons react. They will fire in a way to cause excitement and anticipation similar to what you feel when you watch a high-speed car chase. Your amygdala in the brain, as shown in research, will literally light up under brain scans as the “Law of Attraction” does its work.
Sign 6: You See the Sequence “111” everywhere
This is one of the less subtle signs that the “Law of Attraction” is working for you. There are many theories for why this happens. Some suggest that this is the “Angel” number. In any case you will start seeing watches and clocks showing 11:11, you will see addresses with 111, license plates around you will have 111 in their sequence, your number on a wait list will have 111 in it, and you even may find your change at stores starts commonly being $11.10 or a similar amount with a 111 series in this. What do you do when you see this sign? All you need to do is smile and know that you are creating your own reality through the “Law of Attraction”.
Sign 7: Deeper Sleep
Soon you will find yourself more relaxed when you go to bed. You will fall asleep easier and have a deeper more dream-filled sleep. The Universe is reassuring you that the “Law of Attraction” is working and is clearing your mind of stresses so that you will be ready to receive what you desire.
Sign 8: Synchronicity Becomes Prevalent
The final sign is that you will start to find people and things that can provide the resources for what your desire to happen. The “Law of Attraction” is attracting all the resources, contacts, and events needed to make your dream a reality.
Congratulations, you are now ready to not only use the “Law of Attraction” but also to recognize the signs around you that it is indeed working for you. Let’s begin to look, listen, and reach out and touch the objects of our design as we enjoy happiness, excitement and rest, happy in the knowledge that every time we see “111” the law is working for us.
