Pregnant woman finds pregnant ladies all over – Frequency illusion

By | December 1, 2017

Wanted to get some information from xxx person. So was thinking how to contact xxx. And interestingly, xxx was there in news, two days later. Then late night took a book and surprised to see a mention of xxx. Got a phone call in the next day morning wherein which also the person told about xxx.ย  Weird..

Surprised on the occurrences..? Is the universe trying to convey something.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When something is there in our mind, it comes in front of us.

Like, now you thought about me, and I am here, making the connection.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Or a pregnant woman finds pregnant ladies everywhere around her.

Or when I bought a new car, I could see many people driving them all over the roads.

Are all these some pure coincidences..?. Or is it like, it was there before also. But our senses didnโ€™t record it then. And now, there happened some causes to record it in our brain.

Our brain was looking for information connected to us.ย  So we surround ourselves with information related to our thoughts. And we feel a natural increase in frequency of those occurrences. It is nothing but a selective attention, overlooking many other countless things that surround us. ย And this is โ€œfrequency illusionโ€.

I am quite sure many of you might have experienced this cognitive bias. If not, be ready to experience this brainy stimulation in the next few days.

    Yes, it happens almost every time. A tiny thing which very irrelevant for me before and now has become important, can be easily found!

    That does happen with all of us and some recognize it an other don’t. I also think that it like a law of attraction, we are living in high energetic world where our wishes and dreams conspire and bless us with what we want. We always attract ourselves to things which we want.

    It’s a wonderful post .
    I wish we could train this selective cognitive capacity to overlook the negatives and attract towards the positives… can this be done ?
    Can people be trained to do so??

        I will certainly try on my own first.. and I believe that if I could change myself then certainly the society will change on their own.. if energy individuals try to bring this change on their own instead of changing the society then the society would change out of its own.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    lOL… Weird but when my sister was pregnant there were no such encounters. But true, when we are in some condition we tend to observe and notice more of the ones similar to ours. hehe

        “Baader Meinhof” but that’s not entirely true……
        Though subconscious mind plays a significant role….. But many time things we think about never actually happens……

    ABSOLUTELY!!! EVERYTIME.
    We bought a new car a few months back, and we saw it suddenly almost everywhere.
    I came to know a person that lived across me, and suddenly I would see him everywhere.

    This happens to me all the time!
    Most common example is when I learn a new word how I see people use it often. Like how come I never came across this word before then!! =D

    Very true, it happens and i agree with your assessment of selective selection. Eyes would like to see what it would like to see.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! I am a victim of this illusion too. It is almost like the world is conspiring to get in line with our thought. It is like our mind is tuned to see what we wish to see.

    I think it’s true. When you are on a wavelength it is easier to find someone who is on the same wave as yours. haha..

    PS. Are you pregnent? I came back to blogging after so long, I have lost touch with most of the blogs I followed. Just today found yours. So tell me your news.
