Deja Vu from the French, it means already seen, it is the strong sensation that an event or experience currently being experienced has already been experienced in the past. I remember my first experience with deja vu, I was 9 years old. It was a year that changed the way I looked at everything. My father was stationed with the military overseas in Bitburg, Germany.
We lived on base in one of many large apartment buildings, our classrooms for school were underneath these buildings. One of the many benefits of going to school in Europe was the field trips. Wooden shoe factory, art museums and castles. Castles like I’d only seen in movies, castles with moats, armored men and dungeons. I wish I remembered the name of the castle, the town that we were in…….
But my recollection is more about how I felt and that I knew that castle.
I had feelings and memories of things, that there was no way that I would know. The feelings that overwhelmed me when I walked into the building were like none I had ever felt as a 9 year old. As I looked at these contraptions of torture, a cold sweat swept over me, the fear and the memories that ensued were terrifying. I knew I had been there before, I knew of the horrible things that had gone on, it shook my world. That year began the journey into my spiritual self, an exploration into what was happening to me and an awakening. Deja vu started a chain of events that year, dreams, seeing apparitions and visions. I experience deja vu on a regular basis now, I find it comforting and find messages there.
I wonder if you have had a deja vu that has changed the way you felt about something, made you wonder about past lives or feel a connection to another person? I believe deja vu is a tool for us, another way of looking inside of our beings. There is much information not only stored in our brain, but in our cells, our soul and in time itself. If we pay attention to these feelings of deja vu and notice the coincidences that occurring around us, we will find our messages right in front of us.
