Little forewarning that this post is probably going to make absolutely no sense whatsoever and be difficult to follow because I’m having a hard time explaining this in a coherent manner, so I do apologise before you start reading the mess that is this post.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I constantly get de ja vu. I get it all the time – the things I have de ja vu of are never significant, I could be sitting somewhere and look round for a second and suddenly notice that I’ve seen that exact same 5 second scenario before, or I could be having a conversation with someone and suddenly I’ll get de ja vu that the last 2 lines spoken have been something I’ve already witnessed before, and I don’t mean that I’ve heard someone else say it before or I’ve had the same conversation with someone else, I mean that word for word, action for action I have already experienced that exact same thing.
The reason I’m writing this right now is because I just experienced it again 2 seconds ago, literally I was stood at the printer at work and looked around whilst I was waiting for my stuff to print off and ended up getting de ja vu for a solid 10 seconds, after the first 5 seconds I was getting weirded out so started looking around more to dismiss the whole thing but no, the more things I looked at the more I realised that every single thing I laid eyes on had already happened before, and that’s when I remembered that I’d already lived that scenario in a dream.
Like I said, these encounters are completely insignificant, they have no relevance whatsoever – 10 seconds of me standing at the printer at work – it’s completely irrelevant, but I’d been in the same scenario in a dream I’d had. I didn’t remember the dream of course, until I just got the de ja vu and realised that’s where I’d seen it before, but this isn’t the first time it’s happened. Like I said, I get de ja vu all the time and have done for as long as I can remember – basically, the scenario that I’d be in would be something that I’d already lived before, does that make sense? So for example the printer scenario I just described, I’d already lived that 10 second segment before (in my dream) and everything was exactly the same (obviously, because that’s what de ja vu is).
When I get de ja vu it’s either because I’ve already seen / lived it in a dream or simply because I just have this feeling of living it before, whether that was in a past life or whatever I don’t know, it sounds crazy but it’s just the knowledge of knowing you’ve already lived this exact same moment before. Maybe I’m psychic or maybe my dreams are, it’s foreshadowing, right? Showing me things (albeit, extremely insignificant) that are going to happen before they happen. Like I said, I get it frequently and I don’t know why I’ve never written about it before, I guess I’ve never felt the need to because I don’t have anything to say on it really, I just find the whole thing surreal, but I had it again just then and thought I’d write it down because it’s weird – my brain bringing me dreams of things that have yet to happen. I had the printer dream about 2 months ago, maybe even longer, and my dream wasn’t even about the damn printer I just remember being there and that what I just experienced was the same as in the dream, my colleague even had the same spreadsheet open doing the same thing on it that he was in my dream. I know some people experience two things that are similar and say “Oh, I’m having de ja vu!” – no, de ja vu is experiencing exactly the same thing twice, like re-watching a TV episode more than once. Everything is exactly the same.
So does it make me psychic? Does it enable me to predict the future? Or am I just having flashbacks from a past life ?? Like I said, these scenarios are extremely insignificant and I don’t remember them until I get the de ja vu and realise that 1). I’ve either already lived it in a dream before or 2). I’ve just generally lived it somewhere else before (like in a past life, or I saw the future and now it’s happening, I have no idea) – the de ja vu just comes by itself, as in, I don’t remember the scenario until I’m a few seconds into it and figuring out where it’s coming from, so I know I’m not bringing it on by myself.
I don’t know, this probably makes absolutely no sense but I wanted to ramble about it anyway because obviously, getting de ja vu doesn’t bother me, I just find it really interesting and I guess there’s no way of ever really finding out how it all works – like, my dreams aren’t recorded, I can’t watch my dream back and then see if it really was what I experienced, there’s no psychologist that could tell me whether I was right or wrong about it, you know? All I know is that I’ve lived that 10 second segment of my life before and it either came from being able to predict the future, living it in a dream or just living it in a past life, and I guess there’s really no way of being able to prove or disprove that, you know? You can’t analyse it because there’s nothing tangible there to look at.
Who knows, I don’t know why I have dreams about 10 second random insignificant moments that have yet to happen to me and then actually live those moments months afterwards, it’s all weird.
Do any of you get de ja vu from dreams and stuff?? As in, everything is exactly the same – the people are blinking at exactly the same time they were before when you lived it in your dream or whatever, I’d be interested to know. Does anyone know anything about it???
I probably sound crazy and maybe I am but oh well, you all knew what content you were letting yourself for when you followed my blog, you’ve brought this all on yourselves.
I’m kidding, of course (or am I)
Anyway, I’ll shut up and stop rambling now – any psychologists in the room??? Talk to me about de ja vu!
All my love,
