Déjà vu is that uncanny feeling of having experienced a situation before and has eluded explanation for centuries. If you regularly experience déjà vu it may have made you wonder if it is a form of precognition or some other psychic ability. Let’s take a look at what we do know about Déjà vu.
So what is Déjà vu?
If you have never personally experienced déjà vu it may be a hard concept to grasp. The term déjà vu is French meaning, “already seen.” Those who have experienced the feeling describe it as an overwhelming sense of familiarity with something that shouldn’t be familiar at all. However no one is entirely sure what it is, there are many theories. Some of the theories to explain déjà vu are a memory of a dream, a precognition, a coincidental overlapping of events or even a past life experience in which we rekindle ancient alliances.
Could reoccurring Déjà vu indicate precognition?
There are researchers that feel déjà vu is more of a memory disorder, however, the more commonly accepted theory is that it is indeed a form precognition. There are however some important differences to take note of. True psychic precognition is like a premonition. It is a thought or feeling that predicts some future event. Déjà vu, on the other hand, is the thought or feeling that the current situation has been experienced before. This would indicate that the previous experience was actually the precognition and that the present is the premonition coming to fruition.
Does Déjà vu mean you have psychic abilities?
While it is not a definitive indicator it is highly likely. Since recalling the past and imagining the future are closely related and involve overlapping brain regions. If you feel you are having precognitive experiences that are leading to regular occurrences of déjà vu try strengthening your psychic abilities to see if you can, in fact, sharpen the precognitions enough to recall them after you have had them prior to the moment the déjà vu occurs.
