5 Reasons why deja vu means you’re on the right path

We’ve all experienced the freaky sensation of deja vu, but most of us brush it aside as a random, unexplainable experience.

But what if deja vu is more than that? What if it’s actually a sign of a spiritual awakening? We’ve laid out five reasons why deja vu means you’re on the right path – let’s jump into the first:

1) You’re aligning with your higher self

Your higher consciousness may be sending you messages through deja vu.

This will be likely if you’re experiencing a spiritual awakening or have started trying to connect with your higher self on a deeper level.

But the truth is, you’re never disconnected from your higher self, it’s just that now you’re open to listening to its guidance within you.

And once you are aligned with your spiritual self, you’re opening the door to your potential in life.

You’ll start making decisions that will lead you closer to the lifestyle you want to live, not to mention closer to the person you are at heart and spirit.

You see, most of us stop tapping into our higher selves. We give in to the fear-driven ego which drives most of our thoughts and decisions.

So if you’re at a time in your life where you’re able to peel back the layers and “reconnect” so to speak with your spiritual self, this is a true sign of personal growth and development.

So when you next experience a deja vu?

Stop for a minute and appreciate that it could be a sign from your spiritual self. In some cases, the message might present itself quite clearly. You’ll get it straight away, and understand the revelation taking place within you.

But, other times you won’t be able to figure it out no matter how much you try. Your deja vu might be completely random with (seemingly) no meaning to it at all.

In this case, don’t overthink things. Let yourself gently flow with life without trying to attach meaning to things or experiences unnecessarily.

2) You have heightened intuition

Here’s the thing with intuition – the more you listen to it, the more guidance you receive.

And if you’ve got heightened intuition, there’s a good chance you’ll experience deja vu more often as a result.

Where does this intuition come from?

Well, there’s no real scientific explanation for intuition. Researchers describe it as “nonconscious emotional information”, which in layman’s terms just means feelings or sensations that happen within the brain and body.

In non-scientific terms, intuition is often seen as a spiritual experience. Whether you believe it to be a message from God, the Divine, your higher self, or your soul, the gut feeling isn’t just a random sensation.

But there’s one thing for sure – those who have heightened intuition have a unique ability that shouldn’t be ignored. Especially if you’re trying to steer your life in the right direction.

Some of the benefits of listening to your intuition include:

  • Having increased confidence within yourself
  • Having strong decision-making skills, with little regret or doubt after decisions have been made
  • Being able to flow on your journey in life without resisting what your body tells you
  • Finding inner-peace once your body, mind, and soul are in union and you’re able to take guidance from their collective energy
  • Increasing empathy for others by relying on your instincts and gut-feeling
  • Becoming a better judge of character

So when you lay out just how powerful intuition is, it’s no wonder your life can take a turn for the better when you start listening to the signals you receive from within.

And the same can be said for deja vu.

If you are following a spiritual path, you may find that deja vu works hand in hand with intuition. Once you have heightened intuition, you might find other abilities will also strengthen, such as clairvoyance or seeing into past memories of another life.

And these will then often play out in the form of an unsettling deja vu experience.

3) You’re receiving guidance from your spiritual guardians

Spiritual guardians, angels, and ancestors, may be sending you signals that you’re on the right path through deja vu.

The truth is, there are many ways in which our guiding spirits communicate with us, sometimes through dreams, other times through telepathy.

But in the busy world we live in, it’s easy to miss these messages. Most of us just brush these connections off as a “random” thought or dream.

The same goes for when we experience deja vu.

We experience a wave of familiarity, confusion even, as we try to work out where this sudden sensation has come from. Sometimes it happens in the most mundane setting – whilst queuing to pay at the checkout.

But other times, when it happens it’s during quite a profound moment. Meeting someone for the first time, for example.

It usually goes something like this:

Your friend introduces you to a colleague of theirs, and as soon as you lock eyes to say hello, you can’t help but feel like you’ve met before.

You might even ask them, “Do we know each other from somewhere”, to which they’ll laugh and say no. But the feeling will keep nagging at you, even though you know you’ve never seen this person before in your life.

And more often than people realize, this sense of deja vu is actually a sign, a guiding presence.

It comes from those looking over you and gently guiding you on the right path. This is another way to communicate their support, so pay attention when a situation like this happens.

Even though it’s only a fleeting moment of recognition, try to recall how you felt. If you experience deja vu with a person, was it a good sensation?

If your deja vu didn’t leave you feeling happy to have met the person, there may be a reason why.

But, the bottom line is:

When you’re on the right path, you’re open to receiving these messages from your wise ancestors or loving guardian angels.

So, if you experience deja vu, especially in promising situations or when you’re being offered new opportunities, it could be a sign to go for it!

And if it happens with a person, it could be a sign that you share a real love connection.

4) Your dreams are revealing your future before it happens

Some believe that deja vu occurs because you’ve already dreamt about the situation before.

Here’s an example:

You dream that you’re handing in a job application. Something you’ve been afraid to do for a while because you’ve struggled to find work and it’s knocked your self-confidence.

This is the dream team that you’d love to work with.

By the time you wake up, you’ve forgotten the dream and you carry on with your life.

But one day, you decide to take that step and go for that job, because you are capable and you’re finally realizing it.

As you step into the reception to hand over your application, you get the freaky feeling that you’ve been there before.

You look around, trying to find out what it is that feels so familiar. Is it the sofa? The assistant behind the desk? The painting on the wall?

Nothing stands out to you, but you’re sure you’ve walked through that door before.

Maybe you have – maybe you did in your dream and you just don’t remember it.

This is called precognitive dreaming – when your dreams predict or reveal the future.

Why does this happen?

Well, there aren’t any scientific explanations per se, but in spirituality, it’s believed the dreams are an intermediary between the spiritual world and the physical world.

Many symbols and signs are sent through dreams, whether from the soul itself, guardian angels, ancestors, or from your higher self.

So when you experience a deja vu, there’s always the possibility it’s your mind remembering what you’ve already experienced and seen in your sleep.

Now, from a spiritual point of view, your dreams aligning with your reality plays a lot of significance – it could very well be a sign you’re on the right path in life.

But it can also stem from your passion and drive. Our dreams are often a mix and match of different thoughts, memories, things we’ve seen, heard or experienced.

If you’re on the right path to achieving something you want in life, this will likely play out in your dreams too. Your desires are powerful, even if you don’t remember them when you wake up.

5) Your soul is connecting with your physical self

Is there any better signal that you’re on the right path than when your mind, body, and soul are in balance and harmony?

Life starts to feel very promising. Things start going your way. Even setbacks aren’t a problem because you’re focused. Not just mentally, but all your energy is working toward that goal.

Whether it’s a peaceful mind, a prosperous business, a happy family life, whatever it is that you are striving towards suddenly feels like it’s achievable.

So when your soul connects with your physical self, see them as powerful allies.

Together you’re a much stronger being. The harmony that comes from having this connection allows you to see, think, and feel clearer.

And when you feel this balance within, it might also present itself in the form of deja vu.

As author and astrologer Tanaaz Chubb describes it, the soul, during its time in the spirit world, is busy planning out the purpose of your life in the physical world.

So when it connects and enters the physical body, it gives little “nuggets” of information to you. This is the soul’s way of guiding you onto the right path, to achieve what you’re meant to do during your lifetime.

Chubb also mentions that this can happen through:

  • Signs sent through dreams
  • The feeling that you’ve known someone forever even if it’s the first time you meet
  • Meaningful coincidences, also known as synchronicity
  • The powerful gut-feeling that guides us almost daily

So when you do experience deja vu, there’s a good chance it’s because the soul is present within you. This jolt of memory could be to show you something that’s going to unfold in your future.

But it could also be a sense of remembering what was planned in the spirit world. In either case, your soul connecting with your physical being is a definite sign you’re on the right path.

Final thoughts

Deja vu, whether you find it thrilling or unsettling, is what you make of it. Those who are on a spiritual journey will naturally find meaning in deja vu, simply by being open to the idea that there is the meaning behind it.

Others will approach the idea with skepticism – they may see spirituality as a waste of time.

But the truth is:

If you’re experiencing a lot of deja vu, and you’ve made efforts to connect with your spiritual self, there’s reason to believe that it’s all connected.

And we all know how powerful the sensation can be sometimes – is it our mind playing memory tricks on us? Or is it a sign to be followed?

Either way, if you’re on the right path, heading to where you want to be in life, letting deja vu guide you may just be another way you connect with yourself on a deeper level.
