Ever since I was a small child, I had these momements in my life where it seemed as if I had went through it before. Its extremely weird, because I know this exact situation has never happened ever, its almost impossible.

Here's an example

I was a friend's birthday party, and we were around a table talking away in his kitchen. Suddenly this weird feeling came to me, and I felt like I had been here before, though this is the first time I've ever gone to the guy's house. I could almost say the exact words that everyone would say, and I had this extremely weird feeling inside my head, almost surreal. This has happened to be many time before, the recent example from this week. I dont why this happens, or if I can control it. Also, my best friend one day approached me out of nowhere and told me he has the same thing happen to him. I thought that was odd, because neither of us had brought it up until that point.

Anyone have experiences like this? Is it just me? Can I somehow control this?

I don't understand your question. What you described is exactly what deja vu is.

Yes, you described deja-vu perfectly.

Is this common?
What does it mean though?

Its fairly common. Im not sure if scientists know exactly how deja-vu happens, but I remember reading about it awhile ago. For instance, if you walked into a building, one half of your brain might recall information quicker than the other half, you only have a general recollection of walking into a building before, but since one half picks this up quicker if gives you a vague feeling of feeling like you've done this before. The feeling is vague enough to where your brain says "YES, weve done this!" you get the point hopefully. sorry im not good at explaining things. heh

I've had Deja-Vu quite a few times. I don't try to "break it" as people try to do to avoid bad luck. I just run with it. I read somewhere it's matching of similar memories in the brain but I don't buy it. I'm a bit facinated with it because I see it as personal proof that time is not linear necessary or at least we don't have as good of an understanding of it as we thought. Puts us in check, humbles, and wakes up the concious when we start to falling asleep.

I have it fairly often but once it was in a dream. I dreamt i was on a train with my friends and there was a newspaper on the table in front of us. A couple of weeks later we went on a school tour to Belfast and as we sat on the train i realized this was my dream! My friends and i were sitting in the same position as we were in my dream, the interior of the train looked exactly the same and lo and behold there was a newspsper on the table where we were sitting. I explained this to my friends after i realized it but i think they think im crazy!

I had deja vu today.

Twice in fact. Once this morning after i got up. Then later this afternoon at work.

Now I know people say that it is the different parts of the brain catching up and what not. However, i have had situations when the deja vu feeling is there but i also know what will happen within the next few seconds. Knowing what will/what has happened then lets me tailor my immediate responses to change this event in the next couple of seconds.

For example, one time i may do nothing just to see if the events do unfold. And they do. Other times i may just slip in an other word or say nothin at all to avoid a row with my siblings.

This is a rare occurance though. Mostly I just get the standard sense of having done this before. When it happens though i try to see/think what will happen next. With limited success. And as I said it is a rare occurance.
( though when it does happen i seem to get a few episodes realtivly close together )

It would seem to me that it is in fact a form of precognition. Also, I must agree with the previous posts in saying that perhaps our understanding of time is all wrong. These events occuring hint at it.

Have any of you had anything similar to this?

Ye, your experience on the train was similiar to mine. It makes no sense though because like i stated earlier, I have never been to this guy's house ever. It was the weirdest feeling, and no one gets me when I say it.

Tha's not Deja Vue...that a premonition ....you dreamed it and it happened.....Actually Deja Vue occurs, in my opinion, due to time bands. There are different time bands, where we live our lives much in the way we are now, with differences from different choices made...periodically, these bands meet at a particular point, where the information "bleeds" through from one band to the next...only momentarily...Some people try to explain it as "I've done this before"...as in a past life which is nonsense....when have Deja Vue of reading time magazine or taking something out of the microwave....I mean, come on, Microwaves haven't been around forever.

It's really odd, I've had "Deja-Vue" dozens of times before. Mostly it happens in dreams. This scares me very badly, it makes me think "WHY DO I KNOW WHAT"S ABOUT TO HAPPEN" and if things in our realm are always during the "present" which can not be fortold due to everyone having free will, how can I know what people will or won't do.

I've tried three methods, the first being to go along and mimick the preminition I had earlier, it becomes very scary and extends that feeling of "Deja Vue". I've tried doing something that I didn't do in the preminition, it simply ends the feeling and suddenly things are different. The final method I've done is to simply observe, say what comes to mind and try to ignore that feeling. Method three yields the same results as method one, yet I get more of a feeling of absent mindness.

Can anyone relate? Or maybe explain? Could it possibly mean we have more than one realm involving our subconcious going on during this, the physcial realm?

I've had it before, it's odd, but I just drift through the day. I think it is becasue one half of your brain is running faster than the other, so it processes stuff, and the other one might be playing catch-up. Or maybe its jsut becasue everything is pre-determined and everything goes a little out of sync for a while? Who knows.

Wierder still are memories you have, but didn't happen and you can't recall why you know this, as it isn't your memories, Though you know it wasn't a dream. Its freaky, I have had this twice, once In Italy on holiday I knew my way around this town, I had never been to, then i got some really nasty flashbacks. It was propely screwed up. I wish it could be explained somehow.


But, Deja Vu is one of those things. Run with it while you have it, its one of lifes great experiences.

anymore these days i get a feeling of deja-vu, but not exactly. and i feel like this almost all the time. i feel as though every moment of every day, i have experienced before, unto infinity. but at the same time i feel like this is somehow the 'last' time. when i say that i feel this, its more of like i -know- it to be true, but have no reason to. get chills whenever i think about it.

I was watching X-Files
....
... and there was an episode were an event happened over and over again. I won't go through the whole episode in case anyone hasn't seen it!! But Mulder's theorie was that de-ja vous can keep reocuring because we were ment to do something at that specific moment.

I think Lady V has got something. It makes sense. Read her post and ponder.

I think Lady V might have something there as well. I will take it a step further and speculate that these bands might not be unlike waves that could come close at crests or troughs. Just a thought.
