Signs From Above: How to Recognize Them
Signs, they’re everywhere, and sometimes it’s difficult to determine whether we are in front of the real deal or if our imagination is playing with us again! How to determine if that’s actually a sign or we are falling victims of what is psychologically called “frequency illusion”? Keep reading to find out!
The frequency illusion or selective attention.
To determine what is what, it’s necessary to explain what exactly is the frequency illusion. This is a psychological term, also known as The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon that explains why once we learn or take an interest on a topic, a name, a new word or a song, we start seeing it everywhere. This is thanks to selective attention, meaning that the information that is now implemented in our brain is more likely to be ackowledged when we come across it. This is probably the reason why you may have never minded about the name “Wenceslao” and it wasn’t until you fell for some Wenceslao guy that you started seeing his name all around!
It can be a little disheartening to think that what we consider signs can be actually a trick in our brain, right? The next points will help you know the difference between selective attention and an actual sign!
Spiritual signs: When we’re being guided from above.
An spiritual sign is usually something you cannot skip. It’s not just seeing a name or a number or an object or a sentence at random. It comes just in the right moment, and the seconds that precede the event are of a meaningful nature.
For instance, you can see “Just Do It” all over the place if you’re in a sports shop. There’s nothing mystical about it! But, if you’re walking down the street thinking about your new business venture when you bump against a post and when you look you see a “Just Do It” sticker… Then we are talking about a sign!
Some clues that it’s actually a sign.
- You have asked for a sign.
- You’re honestly seeking guidance.
- The surrounding environment is not related to the sign.
- It occurs in a way that makes it really difficult to be casual.
- You wouldn’t have seen it if you hadn’t been lead to it.
- It truly resonates with you.
- This might be a cheesy one, but it gives you goosebumps.
- You know what it means when you see it.
- You have an inner feeling of connection.
- It has an impact on you.
- It doesn’t repeat over and over again.
Guidance from above is always well intentioned and a great gift given to us that can help us navigate the most uncertain and emotionally conflicting moments in our life.
