As defined, deja vu is the feeling of having experienced something before and I am very sure a lot of people have experienced this - including me. Allegedly, deja vu occurs because of people's dreams. On a regular sleep, a person dreams of about 10 'movie clips' but in the morning, that person will only be remembering one or two. If anything happens that is similar to the 'forgotten dreams', that would be deja vu... Cool or what??? You?? Have you ever experienced deja vu?? Can you tell me something about it?

I have deja vu quite often. The most unusual thing about it for me is that my deja vu episodes are usually fairly long--several minutes, sometimes. Whenever I realize it's deja vu, I kind of end up withdrawing from the situation, and just watching it. It's usually a little bit disturbing to me.

this has happened to me many times already. this is the reason why if something like an occurrence or a place seems too familiar to me, i immediately say that this has happened to me in a premonition. these dreams, if well remembered, can actually pull us away from dangers which are about to happen to us. since it is true that most of our dreams are reduced to forgetfulness, i take heed of my instincts if there are some places which i must have to visit. if i don't feel so good about pursuing it immediately, i postpone it for a few hours later or days after, depending on how i feel. this has saved me a lot of bad incidents from happening to me.

Lately I watched the movie called Deja Vu. Frankly, I feel confused and don't understand it very much.

Yes a lot of times. I once read that de javu is experienced when such event or happening already happened in a persons higher level of consciousness which could sometimes manifest in dreams.

Well your readings partly confirm what I have given out as a rough explanation - most likely, deja vu is indeed related to dreams. Thanks for this response!!!

OMG! I have deja vu ALL THE TIME! Not kidding. I always feel this. Whenever we do something together as a family and someone says something, it feels like deja vu. It is sooo hard to explain the feeling u know? Weird

Yeah, I feel like that way some time ago. I can't understand myself but it seems that a certain place or a situation I'm in happened to be the same as before. I just can't remember when or how. I wonder if this is really possible. Sometimes I can't convince myself with this things or just thought it was just a dream I have before.

Hi, vesuvius. Thank you for your detailed explanation about deja vu. Of course, I've experienced it before. I think most of people must have experienced deja vu but they may not know it themselves. I believe after reading your words, it'll be clearer to them. I think it's difficult for us to tell the reason from it, even to the scientists. I guess one of their tough tasks, I mean the scientists in this field, is to do some careful or meticulous research on it. Hope the real reason can be found as soon as possible. Have a nice day! :)
