Have you ever had an experience in which you were in a new place, yet felt as if you had been there before? Have you been in a new situation, but felt it was familiar?  This is called deja vu.  The experience of deja vu appears to be very common, and that seventy percent of people claim to have experienced it at least once before.  People who believe in reincarnation say that the reason for deja vu is that one has experienced the same situation in a past life.

Deja vu is usually triggered through your five senses.  It could be a smell, the taste of food, combination of colors, pitch of voices, background noises or anything else that triggers old memories.  You might not remember the original experience that created the memory, but you remember having experienced it, and you associate it with the present experience.  The mind is very powerful and creates all kinds of experiences that most people don’t even try to understand.
