Déjà vu is the feeling of being certain that you’ve already experienced a certain situation previously. It’s as if what has happened is repeating itself in a new moment. A lot of the times, this is because it actually has.
When we think about what we do or say each day, a lot of the times it’s repetitive.
I’ve had so many moments where I have to ask my friends if I’ve already told them a certain story I’m in the middle of.
Half the time – I have. Sometimes, some of these experiences have happened in a dream and a specific object or word reminds you of it.
Déjà vécu is similar to Déjà Vu but it is much more immersive. In a moment of Déjà Vu, it’s something you’ve SEEN before, but in a moment of Déjà Vécu, it’s something you’ve FELT before.
It brings forth senses of smell and sound in greater detail. It is a more intense version of Déjà Vu.
Déjà visité is an amazing feeling of familiarity with a place you’ve never been. If you’re walking around a new city or perhaps forest and you have this strange feeling of being there before – well maybe you have in a dreams state or on a higher frequency. I was walking around a neighborhood in Santa Cruz – a place I never thought I’d visit.
I had a completely overwhelming feeling of being here before.
I had actually thought of this place as a kid, and it had more to do with the feeling of being here rather than what everything looked like.
The experience was amazing and brought me to tears as I was overcome with feelings of gratitude.
Déjà senti – stemming from the word sentimental, is the phenomenon of having “already felt” something. This sometimes translates to thinking you just spoke but then realizing you didn’t say anything at all.
It happens inthose moments of daydreaming, when you think you just did something but snap back into reality and realize you were just sitting there the whole time.
