Have you Experienced Deja Vu?

Updated on October 27, 2011


Déjà vu what exactly is déjà vu? Is it something that has come out of the Voo Doo religion of New Orleans? Or is it something much more spiritual? Well there are a lot of areas to the origins and meanings of Déjà vu. Déjà vu has a pretty simple definition in itself according to the masses it is related to being familiar with a situation or location as it has happened before.

Déjà vu has been scrutinized in the scientific community for decades. In the beginning reputable doctors were so sure that the feelings the person had were associated with schizophrenia or an identity order. They routinely tried using shock therapy and other extreme measures to heal the individual but, the result usually turned out different. Eventually Some medical professionals concluded that the brain has a malfunctioning neuron that displays a double vision type memory where then they assume that it is an old memory on top of another which results in the feeling of having been in this location or place before.

Holy Kitty !! Did I just see that?

But, besides the scientific community there is another group of people who insist this is a spiritual message or spiritual memory coming to the surface. Others believe that the Déjà vu experienced is a past memory of the soul coming to the surface. A regression of a moment in time when the soul lived before in another form or another time is a common belief among a lot of people. Some even say déjà vu is a reminder of your path in life. When you have an experience you are on the right track because you are exactly where you re pre destined to be. Where everything that you have done is woven on course with the will of God that was set in motion since your creation.

Déjà vu is a common cultural occurrence in the western belief system now. But how did it become so. Hollywood with movies that have references to it. The movie déjà vu, or in the matrix where there is a glitch because you say something twice. It is actually kind of mind blowing to think of all the possibilities. But how do you decide what your own beliefs are on the topic?

 I remember in my own life there are times I will have vivid dreams and then months or years later be reminded of them in a déjà vu experience. Or just out of the blue be in a location and all of a sudden have a familiarity. Not sure if this makes me crazy or if this is truly something from the soul. Maybe there are neurons in my brain not firing correctly after all the years of high school doing crazy stuff.  Maybe it means that my soul has a past life even thought I have never experienced any additional proof of this. Maybe it means that I’m on the right path in life. Then again maybe it is a warning I’m on the wrong path in life and it is trying to tell me that it is going to correct or I have a decision to make that will correct or change my destiny.

In fact I’m not even sure why I wrote this hub. Got up this morning had a thought and not even a déjà vu experience. I would like to hear your thoughts ideas and suggestions on what we can do to discover the true meanings of déjà vu.

    Kadmeils, This is such an interesting subject! I've always heard of it and know what it means but never really put much thought into what it could be.. I just know every time it happens to me which isn't very often, I think to myself "that was wierd" and then not think anymore about it. Feeling that feeling of I've already been here and done this so vividly.. Sooo WEIRD!!!! Great hub :)

    Interesting line of thought, I voted up and useful. I don't often experience deja vu, but when I do it seems to be connected to a visual source, like meeting someone and getting the feeling I know them already, thanks 50

    Great insight I get deja vu all the time. It makes me want to learn more about the brain to understand the condition.
