Have you ever felt that what is happening with us has already happened in our lives before, or what you are seeing you have seen it before? or going to a strange place and you feel that you have been there before, even though you have never been. Have we ever seen these things in a dream, or do we have an inner capacity to know them in advance, or is it a delusion, a mental disorder, or a mental illness?
Psychologists and scientists have been researching for a long time why this happens.
Ancient people, including the Greek philosopher and polymath Aristotle, believed that our soul existed before we were born and would continue to exist after death. During the dream, it travels outside our body. In the dream, when we sleep, our souls move around, wherever they go, and where they meet, when we wake up, so we think this has happened to us before.
In 1876, the French scientist Emile Boirac researched this mysterious state and named this unique feeling and state Déjà vu. It means a feeling of having already experienced the present situation.
According to research, two-thirds of us have experienced Déjà vu once in a lifetime, but it is not yet fully known why this condition occurs. In a 1973 survey by the National Opinion Research Council at the University of Chicago, 58 per cent of Americans admitted to experiencing a Déjà vu condition, up to 67 per cent in a 1986 survey, according to a recent survey of about 70 per cent have faced this situation and are often confused about it.
Alan Brown, a professor of psychology at Deadman College, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, USA, says most young people experience Déjà vu and it is more common between the ages of 15 and 25, and then it gets worse and worse as you get older.
Such incidents are mostly observed by women because women are more receptive ie they have more ability to absorb everyday events and more able to understand gestures and speech. That’s why women have more of these kinds of experiences. In other words, women’s sixth sense is much better.
