Although, it feels like a double exposure on a film, I have learned that a deja vu is in actuality a preprogrammed moment, richer in meaning, than a mere momentary odd flush of feeling of having experienced, said or done something quite identical, before.
It is in truth, an insignificant moment purposefully inserted into one's Heavenly planned and detailed blueprint for existence in the physical body; it reveals that you are, in that moment, aligned with the correct spiritual path you originally chose in your blueprint.
Thanks for your input, Paul. It's so interesting to hear different people's perspectives!

Yes, I have on numerous occassions. Recently I went for a night trek with family and friends, that was a first ever experience of a night trek, but at one point I had a very strong deja vu.
There is one explanation that I have heard for deja vu. It said that due to some nerve connection dysfunction in the brain, the signal from one of the eye reaches the brain earlier than the other eye. So when brain receives the visual signal from one eye, it perceives it and a few micro seconds later brain receives visual signal from the other eye. Now, this second visual signal gives us a feeling that this has happened before, though it has happened only a few micro seconds earlier.
I've never thought of it like this - that makes a lot of sense.
Most of my experiences with this phenomenon happened during childhood, and had more to do with reliving my dreams in real life. I would dream something very specific and detailed, and then it would happen later exactly as it had in the dream.
Now, I'm not certain I really believe in anything paranormal. It's more that I think there are scientific explanations for almost everything and we simply haven't got the answers yet. In my case an echo or delayed signal between the left and right optic nerves would not explain anything since there were hours between the dreams and the incidents.
However, I postulate there IS a scientific reason I dreamed of something before it happened. I believe it's the same skill that helps me avoid getting into car accidents. The ability to identify patterns in the things that are going on around us could easily help us 'guess' with a high lievel of accuracy, what will likely happen next. If I see someone switching lanes a lot, I know they're impatient and trying to get ahead, so I avoid them, as I do with the ones whose cars weave slightly back and forth. You just know they're not paying attention. I've literally watched a woman turn onto a street into the second lane, and knew beforehand that she was going to do that, just by the direction she was looking and the slightly wrong angle of her wheels. Before she was even at my car I'd already adjusted and avoided the sideswipe. In 24 years of driving I've never collided with another vehicle, or had them hit me.
So, dreaming of going to school and sitting on the bench in gym class because I forgot my shorts that morning, and then having it happen, was probably more a reflection of the fact that I knew I'd be busy with my early-morning skating practice, and would be distracted enough to forget the other clothes.
A book I've read has a character with a supposed psychic talent which the author calls a 'matrix-talent', and the way she decribes his abilities is by saying that he sees the patterns in everything around him. For him it was a reason to worry that he might go crazy one day, trying to make patterns out of chaos. It did make him a very good driver, though, and so talented at calculating odds that he ended up very rich running a casino.
Or, what about cause and effect? Maybe because I dreamed of it happening, I was more likely to subconsciously do the things that would make it a reality. I have extremely vivd dreams, by the way, and remember more of them than most people do, so maybe other people are dreaming the stuff beforehand, too, and just don't realize it, so they follow the path of the dream like an automaton.
Total Answers: 4, Total Page Views: 508.Being a medium and psychic--simply because it was thrust upon me--my life seems to be nothing but deja vu. These "soul recognitions" give us the awareness that we have been someplace or have known someone before. It might not make sense on the surface, but there is an intuitive aspect to all people that allows us to feel we have experienced something before. Things happen on a cellular level that may not ever make cognizant sense to us, yet we have that "been here before" type of sensing that comes with it.
