Déjà vu.


We’ve all had déjà vu on multiple occasions, but have you asked yourself, is it real? As psychologists have said, I used to think déjà vu was a memory of a something we’ve already experienced. I don’t know it could be a past life, who knows. So far, I believe déjà vu is the result of what we’ve envisioned. Just about every other moment we are dreaming, daydreaming. In other words, envisioning future events. Most of the time we are not aware of it, all the more reason why when we experience déjà vu that it’s a little hazy. You know, it kinda feels real but it doesn’t at the same time, yet you’re hella sure that it happened before? Yep! Because déjà vu means, literally, ‘already seen’.

Because I don’t believe in fate, I believe that every time I experience déjà vu, that I’m on the right track. I make it a habit to consciously create future events that I want to experience by mentally meditating and living through the event in my head. It sounds a little crazy, but its the same thing as day dreaming. You’re just in the driver’s seat that’s all. So I know you’re asking, “Where’s the fun out of knowing what’s going to happen?” Well if I think about what I want 2 months from now, I literally forget and trust that whatever I want to happen will happen. That’s where faith and belief comes in. When you believe and have faith in it actually happening, it’s easier to let go and not think, nor worry about. The surprise is déjà vu. It’s like little hints saying it’s working. It also gives you more confidence to continuously create consciously.

My surprises, aka déjà vu’s are very vivid. It’s like a motion picture that slows down and I’m in a trance for a few seconds with all the emotions attached to it. The 1st words out of my mouth is always, “Wait a minute. This happened before, I just had déjà vu.” Because I’m hesitant to plan out the specifics of the event I want to experience, after experiencing déjà vu, I can never know what will happen next to see if everything happens exactly the way I envisioned it. That’s on a whole nother level. Baby steps! lol Yea it’s crazy, the same are my thoughts as I’m writing this, but it’s happened. I also believe that some déjà vu moments that are not linked to our current life in any way shape or form, is a result of a former life we’ve experienced. There have been many psychiatrist who have witnessed clients who have referenced past life events. Some may say déjà vu is just a signal in your brain that says you’ve experienced a familiar moment, but the last time I checked that’s called remembering something.

Most of us don’t like to believe into anything further that our eyes can see or hands can touch. But I’m here to tell you that belief is false. If it were true, we wouldn’t have an imagination nor the ability to dream or experience déjà vu. It’s real via past lives or our thoughts. Subconsciously or consciously we are creating our futures by thoughts and decisions. Déjà vus aren’t a fluke, they’re simply signals and hints to tell us that we are in sync with our thoughts.

Because just like me, you would’ve sworn you’ve experienced certain moments before.

I thought, what better way to track my level of growth than by sharing my experiences and the lessons learned thereof, than in my blog?

  1. What you are doing sounds more like instilling a mantra in yourself or being able to project good outcomes and doing what you need/see to do to reach them. That’s not exactly deja vu. But, I bet when you do have good times, you file them to replay later.

    My deja vu experiences have yet to be happy ones. They are perpetually ill feelings of things I did that didn’t help me. But, the trance/slow motion experiences are similar to yours.

  2. If you meant “replaying them later” as actually living in those moments post consciously creating the event moments prior, yes. To me, the way I’ve explained it above, is a possible way to explain deja vu, although what you’ve said may be a possible explanation as well. When deja vu happens, my memory is a bit hazy and vaguely recognizable at times which is why I try to instantly analyze it. I’m trying to be more aware of how and when it happens to refine my explanations of it a little bit better. Active that’s still ongoing.

    Have you thought to explore the ill feelings from your deja vu experiences? Maybe its a perception thing. Not about the actual deja vu experience, but about life or specific things in general.
