I also have strong déjá vu. More so when I was younger, maybe. One such experience seemed to last almost ten minutes, but the typical one was for only a few seconds. It's kind of hard to explain to someone who's never had it. It's a sensation that that exact moment has been experienced before. It's not, in other words, deja vu as a mere metaphor for things happening over and over again.

Another psychic peculiarity of mine is that experience seems to be frozen in memory fairly quickly. That is, when I learn something new, it very quickly acquires the feeling of something I've known for a long time. I don't know if there's a term for this.

Every since I was a child, I've had an odd relationship to time. For example, I've always felt that the months from January to June were only one third of the year, and that the half-way point was August. I also feel that the span of time between nine and twelve in the morning is equal to that between twelve and five.

What a nice blog to encounter. I also have psychic deja vus, and they are mostly linked to my dreams. Let me explain. When I am experiencing deja vu, I remember the scene as one played out in a dream I had before. What this means to me is that my dreams portend future events.

There is a catch, however. I only remember these dreams at the point of the deja-vu. Every dream that I have consciously tried to remember, in the hopes that it will come true, have not.

I hope you do not mind that I am linking you to my blog. Thank you!

are your deja vus significant moments, though, or commonplace ones?

mine tend to be pleasant, but mildly so, not what i would call remarkable, other than that i am feeling the sensation of deja vu (which, as you say, is *very* difficult to explain). it feels a bit like you're suddenly watching a film of *now.* they vary in length.

Mine are never significant moments. They occur in everyday events, like coffee, or at home, watching the television. It's a curious feeling, I can almost feel a confluence of tiny coincidences that build up to the actual deja vu.
