I was recently asked a fantastic question on the Sacred Stairways Facebook page and I thought it was worthwhile taking the answer into a bit more detail here.
“What does deja vu actually mean? Is it just a familiar feeling of an experience or place we have been before? Or is it a memory of another life we lived?”
Now, before I share my thoughts, I do want to say that no one really knows what causes the deja vu phenomena. There are a plethora of fascinating theories that you can find with a simple Google search. Some of the theories are scientific in nature while others are more spiritual. I believe it’s a spiritual/mystical experience.
In some cases, deja vu can absolutely be a product of a past life memory. For instance, you may visit a place where you’ve lived in a past life and it feels like you’ve been there before. On the other hand, I believe that it may be more often a phenomena of our current life related to probable systems of reality.
Understanding Probable Systems of Reality
One of my favorite books is by Seth Speaks written by Jane Roberts, published in 1970. This was the book where I first learned about probable systems of reality.
A quick 101 on “Seth Speaks”. Seth is a discarnate soul who no longer reincarnates on the earth plane. Jane was a gifted intuitive who channeled Seth. And the “Seth Speaks” material are written records of Jane’s channeling sessions with Seth. This is non-fiction, my friends.
As part of the channeling sessions, Seth breaks down this concept of probable systems of reality. See the below excerpt.
“For its own purpose, and because of its limitations, the ego chooses a single event from all the probable ones. Until the ego experiences the event it is only one of all the other probable ones. It becomes actual in your reality only when it is experienced by the physical self.
A portion of the whole self can and does experience events in an entirely different fashion than the ego does and is aware of all other probable events that could have been experienced by the ego.
This other portion of the self delves into these alternative events in the same amount of physical time that it takes the ego to experience its chosen event.
These other probable events become just as ‘real’ within other dimensions. There are an infinite number of systems or universes between matter and antimatter. Using the physical senses you can never perceive these other systems, but, probable events are events whether or not you perceive them.”
In other words, imagine that you are asked by your significant other to take his or her hand in marriage. Now, imagine you say, “no”. Under probable systems of reality, one part of yourself would experience your life not married to your significant other and another part of yourself would experience life married to her or him.
Now, to further complicate things, imagine that this splitting of the “self” happens with every decision you make. Consider how many parts of yourself are living in parallel realities experiencing the many “what if’s” in your life. What if I had gone to college? What if I had taken that job? What if I hadn’t called in sick to work? What if I’d bought the Mustang instead of the Camaro?
Deja Vu and Probable Systems of Reality
I believe that deja vu may often be phenomena of probable systems of reality.
It is sort of a blip in the systems or “matrix” where your consciousness in your current reality becomes momentarily aware of another parallel existence/probable self which gives that overwhelming feeling of familiarity. There are also other bleed-throughs from probable selves that we experience in dreams, meditation, and other ways.
I know this sounds weird, but we do live in an amazingly complex Universe full of dimensions and realities that our conscious minds are not wired to experience. I invite you to explore your own nature.
I also highly recommend reading, “Seth Speaks”.
