Hi there Raclie! I think it should be e instead of i. Like dejavu. Yeah, that happens to me all the time. I think it's pretty weird.

nanayangel_ My first semster in college, in psych 101, the professor asked what Deja Vu meant? I told him the answer wasn't in the book, so why did he put it on the test? He looked at me like I was an idiot. 'You don't know what Deja Vu is?' It was a bit embarassing. I have experienced this and there are a few different theories. One theory is that your brain repeats a process or thought, making you think you have done something before. What scares me, is that I developed fore-knowledge. That is creepy.

A deja vu can also be a situation that is very similar to one you have been in before. When the experience was hefty you may dream about it. Sometimes reality and dreams are mixed up...

Yes it is spelled Deja Vu... (I don't think the previous poster had put a space in between). How do you remember if you have dreamed it? Deja Vu can also occur without dreaming of anything. How do you know though? Well it's just a feeling you get a part of the thought process or dream seems familiar, and you feel as if you've heard or seen it before. I've read online that Deja Vu is the clearing of old thoughts. It's a process that your mind does to clear away thoughts to make room for new ones. Effectively, it causes your brain to think that something (a thought, a dream, a person, a taste, smell...) seems familiar.
