Blue Car Syndrome, Also known as Frequency Illusion, or Baader-Meinhof phenomenon; Occurs when a new idea or object (like a blue car) is brought to your attention, that thing or idea will then abruptly begin appearing more often in your life, almost as if by coincidence.

Usually this is your mind noticing a new pattern which it previously ignored, in favor of information you were already aware of.
