I don't know if this subject has already been posted here but would be very interested to hear other viewpoints. Please post me the link if it already has been discussed............... I posted this on another forum a few days ago and only have had 2 responses........which makes me wonder if Deja Vu is something that only some people get.......I really thought it was a very common phenomena??
I was listening to Sylvia Brown yesterday on my iPod (free downloads from Hayhouse radio) and she was talking about Deja Vu. I do have these feelings now and then and was talking to one of my friends about it and she says she has NEVER experienced it........although her daughter gets them all the time.
Anyways Sylvia was saying that we choose this life when we are non-physical it's like a blueprint....before we come into this physical life. And when we experience Deja Vu it is like a remembering of things, that we are remembering the life we chose for ourselves..........that's why everything feels so familiar....
Anybody else experience Deja Vu and what do you think?
and after my 2 responses this is what I wrote:
That's funny you should only have had deja vu experiences for a week and a half ago, until I talked to my friend recently I was under the impression that EVERYBODY had them, you know just one of those things we take for granted, like sleeping or our hearts beating kinda thing
And yes Kevin I know about the "crossed circuit" in the brain theory, which is the one I used to believe until I got into this "alternate" way of thinking I now have.......
If somebody had tried to explain things to me like the Matrix up until about 5 years ago I would have thought they were nuts LOL!!
Deja Vu really is an interesting phenomena isn't it? And it's kind of eerie when it happens to you.....there you are sitting in the same chair, at the same desk having the exact same conversation with somebody and you just KNOW that you KNOW you have done this before......
1. Psychology. the illusion of having previously experienced something actually being encountered for the first time.
If it is an illusion well it's a bl***y good one!!
I am very interested in your replies and just how common this is??
I find when I meditate regularly, I experience deja vu on a daily basis. Its like having a reverse time delay. My kids go through patches of experiencing it regularly to not at all.
My understanding is that our minds release from the physical world time restraints during sleep and can free wheel, skip ahead or back in time. I guess deja vu is evidence of time being a physical world illusion.
Yes, to me deja vu is like remembering the future. Time is not really linear anyway, so if we can remember the past why not remember the future or the present as it is happening.
Hmm, I haven't had a deja vu experience in a long time, now that I come to think of it. I used to get them fairly regularly, though.
There are different kinds of deja vu for me. There's the one where I go, "Oh, wait, I dreamed this," (I've had dreams that come to pass since I was a kid), there's the one where I go, "I know I've been in this place before," and there's the one that feels like a sort of temporal hiccup, so to speak (just a little odd blip). Oh, and there's the kind where it means they're changing something in the Matrix. *smirk*
Sometimes I think deja vu (at least some of the kinds of deja vu I experience) is a sort of synchronicity, just a little nod that I'm where I should be, etc.
I thought time didnt exist, we're always in the now? Thats why we will never travel time, cause future isnt made
Found this one today: Brain mechanism explains sense of deja vu
The reason deja vu happens, and I've caught myself doing it at times, is because when you perceive something, you perceive first from your spirit and then through your physical senses. There is a slight time lag. When you then see something using your eyes, you immediately have a brief flashback to when you perceived it a second before. You then have the impression that you have been there before.

But I can't help but put in that my dream diary has a single image recorded that I was able to track back to when the situation popped up exactly in real life months later (except, well, fleshed with context.)
Neat what they might be able to do about Alzheimer's, but I had to wince a bit at the thought of the poor rats' electrocuted feet.
Deja vu is when there are breaks in the matrix system.
Beware, the agents might be coming.
You don't choose bankruptcy and drug dealing ahead of time. You choose the circumstances but not the details. So you may choose to be born into a wealthy family or a poor one and then let the chips fall where they may.
Read this blog entry for more on that.
from a scientific perspective, when we look around, we want to see things that makes every time we look around different from other times. If theres nothing it can distinguish it from an original time. Then we experience Deja Vu, you usually have it in a very bland environment, where there isn't much to distinguish from an original time. Or something along them lines.
Uhhm, I've seen this topic before! ;)
I do not believe in coincidence because I believe many of my "Deja-vu's", as it's labelled, are not caused my a brain hickup at all.
To me, time is, like Erin said, not linear. I like the analogy that time is a bunch of movie frames played in a specific order. Oh but that IS linear.. :/
Probably frames can be swapped and thus future nows can be created/chosen.
Anyway, I can talk about time for hours (heh, hours, in a world of 'now'), but in short, time is a strange thing but I do believe people can look ahead in time.
I myself have had several moments where I knew exactly what was going to happen before it actually happened. I do believe I have dreamt those moments in earlier nows. Then again, if there is only now, your memory of that now is created at that specific now. Just like if you have memories of your past, and there is only the now, then you must be creating those memories now, or else you'd have no memories..
So you're in a situation, and suddenly you create a memory of that exact same situation, thus resulting in a deja-vu.
I guess the now is to blame for deja-vu's then.
Eat that you scientists :)
:confused: how is that 'eat that'....
Thats just your opinion based on a perception of time that time is not linear (which scientists first put forward first)...theres no evidence behind your claim. Least you have your own opinions though it must be said.
I was going to make a topic about deja vu because I keep on getting it more and more frequently and was wondering if this could have something to do with my consciousness being raised lately. Or maybe my brain is having hicups. :rolleyes:
When I experience Deja Vu, it's as if I'm remembering a dream but my dream matches up with reality.
I remember one specific time I had deja vu in a city I don't live in, where I had traveled there to participate in a workshop. The deja vu suddenly hit me so hard, it was freaky. And this situation was completely unique and unlike any other in my life up until that point.
I like to think of deja vu as being an indicator of being on the right path. I'll think to myself, "yep, i'm on the right track. i'm supposed to be here - this event is supposed to happen." Which allows me to take comfort in my deja vu's. Which is a pleasant feeling. :)
... if that makes any sense... ?
I think there has to be more than one kind of deja vu,because i've never experienced it where it felt like i had dreamt it,my dreams are far too abnormal to ever be real. When i get deja vu,it is normal stuff,like sitting around talking to friends. It doesnt feel dreamlike at all,it just feels like i went through those same motions before,but it only lasts for maybe 4 or 5 seconds at the most. And what i dont get is,every day,we DO do the same things,exactly the same steps,same patterns,day in,day out,how come we dont feel deja vu every day then? It can't have anything to do with something we've done before then. I like the explanation that our spirit (or something inside of us) experiences it first and then it registers with our brain a bit later. The last time i remember this happening was just sitting around talking with friends,and it wasnt an important conversation at all. So totally meaningless,and there is no way it was helpful to me,in this life or this 'now',whatever...so,i am going to say its probably a brain malfunction. By the way,Erki,that link didnt work for me,did it work for anyone else?
I've had at least one instance of dejavu where I knew that the experience was not quite like the dream or "first time". At the time, I could even articulate what the differences were.
