Sometimes, despite our best efforts at bringing things into our life, the law of attraction can seem quite stubborn. Deep down, you know that things are probably happening but your conscious mind is constantly nagging you for proof that things are happening. Now. This minute! So, what cam you look for in the way of signs to show that the law of attraction is really at work?
1. Coincidences happen more often
Part of the process of the law of attraction is the occurrence of coincidences. These happen all the time but when you’re trying to manifest things into your life, they can occur more often.
These often subtle signs are often missed in the normal course of events, so it pays to sit down at the end of each day and run through the things that have happened which fit under the umbrella of coincidence.
There’s a school of thought that nothing happens by chance which – if you subscribe to that idea – would mean that, in turn, there are no coincidences.
It can be hard to believe that idea at first but stop to think about it: there are universal laws that always hold true. We accept gravity – it’s not a coincidence that something falls to the ground when you release it. We accept that time goes forward (even if we’d prefer it didn’t). Near enough nothing that happens in nature happens by chance.
Exrapolate from that thought and you’d be hard pressed to prove that anything happened by pure coincidence. Consciously or not, you’re attracting everything what’s happening in your life. So it’s time to take charge!
Jot any coincidences down in a journal and you’ll probably start to see a pattern emerging that relates to the items that you’re intending to manifest in your life.
2. Synchronicity happens more often
This is related to the coincidences side of things. Synchronicity is when two unrelated events happen close together and although they at first appear completely unrelated, they have more in common than you’d expect at first glance.
Synchronicity is often reported in scientific experiments where researchers in different parts of the globe – and who have had no contact with each other’s research teams – come up with the same idea.
In science, it’s known as multiple discovery and Nobel prizes are often awarded to two or three scientists who’ve discovered the exact same thing, completely independently of each other.
If scientists are cool with the idea of synchronicity, us mere mortals should be as well.
Again, note any such events down in your daily journal because in much the same way as coincidences, synchronicity seems to happen much more when you pay attention to it.
That’s actually just another example of us noticing the things we concentrate on. And concentrating on coincidences and synchronicity can help us use the law of attraction to bring things like more abundance into our lives.
3. Opportunities arrive at the right time
This is when you really start to realize that the law of attraction is beginning to work for you.
As with the other options we’ve looked at, opportunities are actually in our life nearly all the time. But they often hide in plain sight which means we miss them.
The law of attraction brings a focus to our lives even if we don’t acknowledge that at first.
Keep your mind open for opportunities that could lead you further along the road to manifesting whatever it is that you’ve set your heart on.
Opportunities are often staring us in the face.
If your friends have ever asked you why you didn’t notice something before now and you’ve experienced a Homer d’Oh! moment then you’ll know all about this.
Sometimes opportunities hang around and wait for us.
But more often they present the opportunity and, if you don’t grab it, they’ll move on to the next person.
The universe likes speed. Our planet is spinning fast. It spins almost 25,000 miles every day – almost twice as fast as a cruising jumbo jet. But that’s only part of the picture. Our galaxy is moving at a phenomenal speed as well (I’m struggling to comprehend just how fast, sorry)
In turn, that means the universe is used to things happening super-fast and it’s well worth grabbing opportunities as soon as possible rather than let them slip through your fingers.
4. You’re more focused
Even the more scatter brained amongst us will likely notice that they have more focus when they have set out an intention to manifest something using the law of attraction.
Even if you don’t do much (if anything) after you’ve set your intention, your mind and the universe both know that you have placed the idea out there for something to happen.
In turn, this will translate into more focus for you. At first, maybe not much. But over time you’ll spot this sure fire signal that the law of attraction is at work, beavering away in the background, to make your desire come true.
Focus is good – it’s basically paying attention to what’s going on around you. Which is a technique we seem to be ignoring more and more. Sydney has just started experimenting with traffic lights in the pavement because so many people are paying more attention to their mobile phone than they are to what’s going on around them.
Take the time to be more present and to focus more often.
5. You feel more in charge
This is similar to the fourth point but is a step closer to manifesting all those things you’ve focused your thoughts on.
It’s the control freak side of you sticking its head above the parapet.
Again, since this probably isn’t a natural state for you, it takes a bit of time to show but persevere and it will definitely come about more in your life and you’ll start to see the signs showing you that the law of attraction is working for you in a positive way.
