Déjà vu - A spiritual perspective

1. What is déjà vu?

Have you ever had that uncanny feeling of ‘I have been here before’ even though it was the very first time you have been to a place? This feeling is popularly dubbed as déjà vu (French for ‘already seen’) and it describes the experience of feeling that one has witnessed or experienced previously an entirely new situation.

2. Spiritual reasons behind déjà vu

We did spiritual research to understand why people go through such kinds of experiences and their root causes.

 

A. 30% cases: Similar experiences or past life experiences

This relates to identifying the present experience with similar experience/s in this lifetime or in previous lifetimes.

B. 50% cases: Tuning fork phenomenon

Every living and non-living object emits frequencies that contribute to the aura surrounding it. In the case of humans, frequencies are emitted from all of the comprising bodies, i.e. the gross (sthūladēha), mental (manodēha), intellectual or causal (kāraṇdēha) and subtle-ego or supracausal (mahākāraṇdēha) bodies. The emission and receiving of these frequencies becomes even more pronounced when a person is meditating and thoughts are focused.

The tuning fork phenomenon relates to when the frequencies of a person’s mind temporarily match the frequencies of minds of other living people or subtle-bodies in the afterlife.

The frequencies of our mind don’t match with everyone and, as a rule of thumb, they would match with 1 out of every 100 million people. In other words, frequencies of our mind would match with some 65 people out of the 6.5 billion people on Earth. The number would be higher for the subtle-bodies in the afterlife because of the larger number of them present in the subtle-regions. These people are not soul mates in any way; it is just that in that particular experience their frequencies of mind matched. They then have a notion that they have witnessed or experienced a new situation previously when in actuality it is someone else’s experience.

C. 20% cases: Miscellaneous causes

3. Interference of ghosts in déjà vu

In some cases where people are affected or possessed by ghosts to a medium or severe extent, the above statistics differ. While 80% of the world’s population is affected by departed ancestors from the afterlife and ghosts, some are affected to a medium to severe extent.

Refer to the article – What percentage of the world population is affected by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.)?

For people who are medium to severely affected by departed ancestors or ghosts, ghosts would contribute an average of up to 50% of all the 3 variables mentioned above. This means that one out of every two déjà vu cases for these people is caused by ghosts. Ghosts often do this to mislead people.
