I write often on things I like about the law of attraction, but I always seek balance in what I write on, and there are things that aren’t perfect. One is that the only way to ‘prove’ the law of attraction to someone is to get them to experience the results for themselves. Unfortunately, manifesting through the law of attraction doesn’t come with a delivery date or deadline, and I completely understand that it can be difficult to maintain focus if results aren’t immediately forthcoming.
That leads people that have never had the pleasure of results to wonder if they’re on the right track. They could be pouring in all their effort, or their belief might be starting to wane. The key is to look out for evidence that the law of attraction is indeed working, even if it’s not quite the full results you ultimately expect.
In this article, I’ll explore what you can look out for to reassure you that the law of attraction is hard at work, even if you haven’t experienced the final results you seek.
Avoid the Idea of Coincidence
It was only recently I wrote an article here on the concept of coincidence and, more importantly, the fact that most practitioners of the law of attraction don’t consider it as being real.
Everyone experiences coincidence at some point in their life, and some never let the idea go. However, when practising the law of attraction, you’ll find that it’s easier to find a reason behind everything than putting it down to coincidence.
When you reach the point where you can indeed give an explanation beyond something being coincidental, even for events that theoretically fit the description, you can be confident that you’re better attuned to the universe than ever before and that the law of attraction is working hard to manifest your desires.
Open Yourself Up to Synchronicity
Coincidence disappears, but not without a replacement. Synchronicity is essentially coincidence for law of attraction practitioners. You can read a complete article on what synchronicity is and how it interacts with the law of attraction here, and the relevance here is that it can aid the universe in directly letting you know that you’re on the right path.
For this topic specifically, repeatedly seeing the number 444 can be exactly what you’re looking for. This is an angel number and this pattern is a sign that you’re on the right track. If you’re content, then keep on moving in the same direction. If you’re struggling somewhat, the message to continue remains the same, as there’s every chance that things will turn in your favour soon.
It’s normally difficult to get people to open themselves up to the idea of spotting these patterns as and when they arise. However, if you’re actively looking for signs that you’re making progress, it’s important not to force things. The nature of synchronicity means that you can’t force a message from the universe. Fortunately, you don’t need to, as they tend to crop up frequently – or at least as often as the universe deems necessary.
Seek Out and Recognise the Small Wins
You might not have considered this before, but the universe knows what you want better than you do! If you request something specifically, it will do all it can to bring that into your life. However, the sheer abundance of the universe means that it has all the time in the world to work on other aspects of your life.
This happens because the law of attraction interacts with both your conscious and subconscious self and there’s every chance you don’t pay as much attention to your subconscious as the angels do.
Just as you can look beyond coincidence when using the law of attraction, you can move beyond the concept of luck too. You may find things falling in your favour, even if you haven’t requested them specifically.
One of my first experiences with the law of attraction involved parking spaces – I’ve written about it before here at Widibi. If your first thought is one of sarcasm, I completely understand. There you are trying to manifest a mansion, and I’m here talking about parking spaces. However, I got the perfect parking space once because someone told me to ask for it. Now, I don’t even have to ask. There’s always one near the door, waiting for me to pull into it.
The moral of this is to take the small wins as they come. The universe is working on your behalf to make your life easier. This comes in handy because it’s a million times easier to manifest a parking space than a mansion. Forget about luck, forget about coincidence and focus on demonstrating gratitude for the good things that are suddenly happening to you.
Notice the Steps Being Taken
Think of manifesting something like a 10,000-piece jigsaw puzzle. You need to find the right pieces, put them together in the right places and then stand back to admire the end result. However, you’ll finish sections and have the opportunity to enjoy that sense of accomplishment, even though the completed task is still some way off.
A jigsaw puzzle of that size requires 10,000 actions – at least. Manifesting something large can require the same, if not more. The universe may be quick and full of capacity, but you need to think beyond the idea of it working directly on manifesting your biggest goal.
I’ll use your dream job as an example. To do your dream job, you need a qualification. It would also help to have something of a reputation in your industry. You also need a car but you can’t even drive yet.
There’s much more to it, but once you break the bigger goal down into smaller chunks, you’ll better understand and be able to celebrate the small wins. You’ll also come to understand that the law of attraction is working.
There will be moments where you get a new connection on LinkedIn from a major player in your industry. You’ll pass your driving test. You’ll be accepted onto the course you need to ensure that you not only get the job you want, but can perform it to a high standard. They’re all the signs of progress that you need.
How to Know if the Law of Attraction is Working – In Summary
The universe is never shy about sending signs, signals and messages, and the best thing you can do is to be receptive. You’ll know if the law of attraction is working through one of the methods above – I can all but guarantee that at least one of them will make themselves apparent to you.
The key is to be receptive. If you’re practising the law of attraction and have faith in its usefulness, you’re probably already a more positive, grateful and open person than you were when you started. If you feel that describes you, then you won’t need to look too hard to find that your efforts are being rewarded.
If you’re the kind of person that struggles to see things through from time to time – and I am too – then this might be the perfect time to think about writing something down. I’m a big fan of the combination of writing and manifestation, as covered here, and the act of thinking about the small wins and big steps before committing them to paper can reinforce the success you’ve already seen.
