‘Déjà vu ‘ – from the French word Deja Reve meaning ‘already deemed’ where there is the feeling of having already dreamed or experienced something that is currently being experienced.
Has it happened to you? So many examples of this incredible sensation common to many. So much to wonder about. It took our expressions into different directions.
Hope you enjoy the expressions and please feel free to explore this word, and let your feelings flow out. Where does it take you?
Feel free to join in with this unique approach we journey through each week. It’s more than the word, it’s where it leads us, it’s what arrives, it’s a gateway to what lies within.

Next week’s word is ‘suddenly’.
Hope to see you there.
Premonition or Déjà vu?
There is for me an unexplained difference A fine line between premonition and déjà vu A conflict amplified by one experience That in so many ways is a mystery An incident that belies belief Even if I believe it to be true
On a rainy night A taxi ride Windscreen wipers distorting light Orange green red black and Then approaching a set of traffic lights Flashing amber that time of night Then feeling I’ve been here before The word “Stop” was to be heard The driver reacted to my cry As a car from our left came speeding by.
Sitting in our silence broken by nervous laughter The cabbie driver said,” that was bloody lucky” Neither of us spoke again Until I prepared to pay my I’m heading home to the wife and kids No way I’m tempting fate”
In bed looking to find some peace I tossed and turned trying to Unfathomable surreal What prompted my reaction that saved two lives? Premonition or déjà vu? I’ll leave that answer for you.
The essence of the spirit holding all that has been Is within everything… me
As I see a fossil embedded in a rock at the shore I pause I wonder I feel A sense of time arrives The endless sunrises sunsets Waves crashing along the shore
As I hear birds sing and nature around me I pause I wonder I feel A sense of vibration arrives The endless sounds radiating From under, over and inside out of me
As I walk my path meandering about my every day I pause I wonder I feel A sense of the miracle The changing moments The seasons, people moving, creating
Then there’s some moments I pause I wonder I feel As though I’ve been here before A familiarity so certain There’s no curtain Between what was and what is
How do I explain? My attempts More in vain Especially when the detail Of what I see In front of me Has existed before… A phenomena I’m sure Where my body cells Keep the score As evolution visits And appears at the door Of my reality

Déjà vu, how beautiful your sound is, classic filled with mystery. It must be very cool to meet you too, to experience that familiar feeling.
What about predicting your future?
For me, sometimes I am really curious to know, what my future career will look like; how about my future partner? What does he look like? What does he do? Oh, what about his personality? I want to know them all. But, I can’t.
So how can I take it as a blessing? Because this is out of my control.
I think I have some answers. Every day for me will look brand new. I can have countless possibilities ahead. And there will be so many exciting adventures to take. I just need to be more imaginative to plant my own dreams.
So Deja Vu, I think I am ok to live without you now. But I will hum your classic sound while dreaming my own dreams.
