DEJA VU - What Is It?

Updated on March 29, 2011

What Is DEJA VU?

Deja vu is an experience most of us have from time to time. If we think of deja vu as nothing more than a pleasant momentary diversion, it doesn’t seem all that mysterious or ‘magical’ - but if we recognize it for what it actually is - a glimpse into the ‘Other Side’ - it takes on a whole new significance.

There are two kinds of déjà vu. The first occurs when you visit a certain house, city, road, foreign country or some other specific location you’ve never been before and suddenly realize that it seems very familiar. Sometimes you may find that you even know your way around.

What ALL of us experience when we feel familiarity with an unfamiliar place is our spirit’s memory of a past life. We have been there before; it was just in another body, in another time. The spirit memory is usually buried deeply in the subconscious, so that moments when it emerges into our conscious minds are not just ‘magical’ - they are powerful, miraculous glimpses into the eternity of our souls.

That same kind of déjà vu applies to people as well. We all know people who seem familiar to us the moment we meet them – strangers we feel we have known all our lives.

Don’t assume that a past-life connection with someone should obligate you to a connection this time around. You do not have to act on past-life familiarity – just notice it when it happens and recognize it as another window into your eternity.

The second kind of déjà vu is so common, subtle and seemingly trivial that we rarely give it more than a passing thought. It consists of a moment in which every detail, from what you are doing and whom you are doing it with, to your surroundings, to what you are wearing, feeling and thinking, is so familiar that you are absolutely sure you are reliving an exact duplicate of a moment from your past. It never lasts more than a few seconds and it is never a significant event.

To understand the concept of déjà vu, we need to understand more about blueprints.

Before our spirit enters the womb for another lifetime, we compose a ‘chart’ or ‘blueprint’ for the life we are about the live. The blueprint contains all the elements of this new life – although we can modify our charts throughout our lives. There is plenty of room for lateral movement in our blueprints, so do not picture your charted life as a narrow path with very few choices along the way.

In our blueprints we write into our chart a few signposts to let us know we are on the right track, according to our blueprints. From time to time those little signposts appear to us in the form of déjà vu. Because they hit us with such a sudden flood of total familiarity, we logically assume we must somehow be duplicating a moment we’ve lived before in this life - but we aren’t. What we are experiencing is a tiny signpost from the blueprint we created on the ‘Other Side’ before we were born. In this type of déjà vu, our spirit is resonating so profoundly with the realization, “I remember the chart I wrote!” that it echoes from our subconscious, where the spirit mind exists, to our conscious mind. For that instant both our subconscious and conscious minds are receiving an affirmation that we are in perfect sync with our blueprints. More than that even, we are getting a quick glimpse at the eternity of our lives on the ‘Other Side’, as our spirit remembers, acknowledges and yearns for ‘Home’.

Those same miraculous, blissful and magical glimpses at the signposts in our charts appear in another very common form as well, with the added bonus that we don’t just remember them, we see them coming. Because we don’t understand their significance, we rarely give them any real thought – we consider them to be ‘just a coincidence’. You have the thought, and sooner rather than later, it becomes real before your eyes. To put it accurately, what you are foreseeing is a little signpost in your blueprint shortly before that signpost appears.

A close relative of ‘coincidence’ is synchronicity. Basically, synchronicity is an ‘especially meaningful coincidence’ - it always involves some unmistakable physical sign of some kind – not only to call your attention to the magical harmony of the Universe, but also to give you tangible proof that you are exactly where you charted yourself to be, exactly when, exactly with whom.

      Dear psychicjoanne,

      Thank you for a very illuminating article. Certainly you understand the true meaning of déjà - vu and its relationship to previous life.

      My family in Devon accepted this as natural and I was brought up in the belief that such life exists and existed.

      Hope we meet again, kind regards Peter

      Wow incredible reading. I sense great truths about what you are discussing, Joanne. I might have to come back to this article again when I have learned some more. I'm glad I found someone on HP who writes about things that somehow matches what I have been looking for to read.

      Thanks for your input Amy. And I agree with you totally. All souls have different experiences for different purposes according to where they are along their spiritual journey, so people's experiences of Deja Vu would differ, and the reasons would also differ. My article is simply an overview.

      Perhaps there is more purpose to the Deja Vu experience than being an indicator to being on the right path. One is always on the right path, because that is the path he is on. The "blueprint" theory certainly feels like the tip of the ice berg as an explanation. No doubt that there are such varied forms of Deja Vu intensities and sources - there could be more here. Forecasting is a possibility, potential blunt-force change on the horizon for the individual. Why would the spirit leave a trail? Maybe to shore up doubt to prepare for upcoming change and coping? It's just such a wide spread phenomenon despite an individual's level of awareness.

      I've enjoyed reading your passages. Thank you for taking the time to write.
