Deja Vu

    I for one, always go through this phenomenon. All the time. Another very unexplainable thing happens to me. Say, I am trying to remember the words of a long forgotten song and I come across it within a short while in quarters very unexpected.

    Does this happen to everybody?

      It should but most people aren't focused enough to make it happen.  It's called 'energy flows where attention goes' theory.  It happens to people unintentionally but we can make it happen all the time if we keep our energy focused on the things we want to happen in our lives.  Listen to The Secret cd.  It's all about this.

        It is a pity such earth-shattering truth should be sold for $44.95 regularly with a special discount price of $39.45.
        One is tempted to call it fake. Or, at least a money making ploy
        lol

        I for one, cannot believe in this theory.  Otherwise, I'd be richer than JK Rowling!!

      um, that doesn't exactly sound like deja vu to me....deja vu is when you get the feeling you've done this before...deja vue is when you get the feeling you've done this before...

        Rafini, I agree with you deja vu is like you walk in a store you know you've been there before, but you get that feeling like you have, in other words the place feels familiar to you, and you know you have never been there before.

          I can't figure out what its called when you find something you're looking for in an unexpected place...is there even a term for it?

        Actually there were two different aspects in my topic. One was about deja vu which did not have any explanations

        The other was about getting a solution to some puzzles.

        Sorry I had not been clearer

        Thanks

    The song thing happens to me a lot. If I am singing a song, it shows up soon somewhere else. I figure the deja vu is because my life is pretty repetitive.

    I find that same thing happening quite frequently with songs and other information.  My dad always told me it was because I was alert to that particular information and that is why I see it, no matter how strange of a place it may be. 

    I often find that if I have a song running through my head that someone else in my family has also been contemplating it too.  My sister and I find ourselves watching or thinking about the same movies at the same time too, and we live more than 600 miles apart.

      My sister lives about 90 miles from me. One night, I woke from a deep sleep, certain I could hear her sobbing "I need you, I don't know what to do!!!" ....I thought she had called me and I was hearing her on the answering machine. I ran into my living room only to see no one had called. It was 1:20 am. I thought for a while..should I call her and see if she is OK? I decided it must have been a dream, I have very vivid dreams often, and went back to bed. Next day I called her, turns out she had been up at that time, very upset, trying to decide if she should call.

      good to see ya Ivorwen..btw. I hope you, and your sis, are well.  smile

        Good to see you too, and I hope the same for you.  I am well, and last I knew, my sister was too.

        I know what you mean about the vivid dreams.  I don't know how many times I have woken up, sure that I had heard my brother's voice, just to have him call within minutes, always after midnight.

        After a while, when so many dreams turn out to be true, it gets hard to tell which ones are just dreams.

          yup. I also have random pointless dreams, like...I brushed my teeth?  Glad to hear all is well.

    Deja Vu, a rhyme
    Deja Vu never happens the first time.

    a couple years ago the man I work for started using the word "ponder" and then we noticed it suddenly showing up all over the place.  This happens because our attention is "awakened" to something, not neccesarily because the thing is happening more than before.  BUT what about when I think of someone I haven't seen for four years and 10 minutes later they call?  this is technically not dejavu - it is serendipity - like when people think of the same thing at the same time out of the clear blue.  I love this - but it never does me one dam bit of good.  smile

    I did a hub on this just a few days ago.

    Deja vu is a misfiring of the brain. I believe there are a few other reasons it could happen as well.
