Concept and What is: Déjà Vu

You can talk about déjà vu-' already seen ', in French-under the spiritual aspect and also under the angle of Neurology and psychology. Typically, however, this feeling is associated with strangeness. That is, the person experiencing the feeling of something already have occurred, or have been in a certain place, can predict what will happen in the script that is experiencing apparently for the first time, but you feel familiar, even if it seems impossible to have lived this experience previously.

This expression has extrapolated the manuals of Neurology and psychology, bleeding to the common sense and acquiring thus various connotations, especially in movies, music, literature and culture in General. In these contexts, it indicates something that looks familiar, any experience without any strangeness, guided only by its literal sense, something already seen before '. In the annals of psychology, does not take into account any factor of spiritual nature, but only chemical processes involving the brain function and memory mechanisms. Some researchers believe that this impression is connected to an experience not completed, not completed. So, something in the current situation leads to outbreak of a fraction of the actual past experiences, but if not preserved but a faint memory. According to these scholars, this sensation can be disturbed, the more the higher the mnemonic fragmentation, which can break the connection between this reality and memory implied.

This can occur when a fact has been experienced without a very clear awareness of him, something that went unnoticed, but which have left traces in the memory. These are awakened as soon as anything experienced in this is associated in some way to this last event. But this phenomenon is also related to events that have kept extremely alive in some corner of our memories. Suddenly, for whatever reason, these occurrences are manifest and are then mistaken for events of a previous existence. In addition to these possibilities, it is suggested the alternative of neurochemical activity in the brain, which translates precisely by an attitude of strangeness.

From the spiritual point of view, we can affirm that this manifestation is expressed even among people who are not linked to any religion, so there is no need nor believe in reincarnation to live an experience of this nature. Suddenly, the individual feels an emotion without explanation awaken within himself, under the impetus of a given event. It's as if some inner process of psychic content or concerning the soul, take the person to believe that ever lived that situation, causing in your intimate extreme emotion. This can happen when you meet someone and immediately feel an unparalleled intimacy and a powerful energy shock. These sensations may agree on soul memories of other lives, recorded in the archives of the spirit. In this case, the tune can be positive or negative, causing respectively feelings of attraction or rejection. Many stories of love at first sight, excluding cases involving hasty, passions and attitudes are born this way.

Emile Boirac (1851-1917), a curious researcher of psychic faculties, was the first to use the term ' déjà vu ' for these events. Although this expression refers to the past, in reality is something in this that we awakened to memories of what has passed, what generates the feeling of strangeness, factor that effectively distinguishes and defines this phenomenon – is the fact that supposedly lived in the past in this life, or in other stocks.
