Déjà Vu, has this happened to you?

Okay, so I’m re writing my previous entry, it didn’t get published. It’s about déjà Vu and I’m curious as to what it is, if people really have it, how can one remove it or enhance it.

I know how I sound like, I’ve had numerous occasions of deja Vu since I was a small child, I encountered the word when I watched the movie “The Matrix” (1999) the scene where Neo and his troop were inside the building and as he was about to climb the stairs he saw a black cat pass by the door and then saw it again when he looked back at the door. He uttered “déjà Vu”.


According to: shantitechnology (dot)com

Deja Vu refers to those odd and usually rare moments whem present feels like the past. Its a hard experience to interpret. Some people search their memories for dreams that might have been like the present. Others think that the experience is what happens when things from past lives emerge in this one. Both notions are impossible to prove, disprove, or (until recently), investigate. The belief that its about past lives is a matter of faith. The idea that it has to do with dreams is less a matter of faith – only a few people claim to recall past lives, but almost everybody remembers some of their dreams. Some recall a lot of them. The theory of reincarnation that is most consistent with modern brain science (Algorithmic Reincarnation) predicts that no memories are passed from one life to the next. What is transferred is a set of signals that reflect states of consciousness. Memories don’t need to go along.

Memories are state-specific. We can have experiences in one state of consciousness (like when we are drunk, for example) that we cannot remember at all when we are in another. States of consciousness provide a much more direct way for someone to select how they will behave than remembering past behaviors and comparing them to present possibilities.

There is a fly in the ointment with dreams as well. Both dreams and deja vu experiences happen in non-normal states of consciousness. Most altered states are are a fertile ground for confabulations. This means that in the moment when someone is experiencing deja vu, its easier for them to create a false memory than it would be normally. In fact, during moments of deja vu , one’s consciousness has unusually direct access to long-term memories, and the brain processes that allow us to retrieve them.


I’ve always brushed off these occurrences, I’ve had that feeling and memories of things happening again, more than once in my life. But they were small things, not too important like the lottery numbers or test answers, just some things like a conversation happening in a location I’ve never been to before, eating a meal with a certain mix of people and an event or small conversation happening during a meal. Sometimes I see faceless people/person then the ‘present time’ comes and I already met the person and his face filled in the blank.

Things like that.

It used to be I remember the scene and experience deja Vu as the event happens again and I tell myself ‘I’ve seen this happen before’ then shrug it off. But lately, it happens sooner.

Nothing big.

Like last week I ordered an smoothie blender online for my workout sessions, because the website had a sale last week, just today I remember telling my sister a few week or a month ago that i swear I will never ever order electronic online.

Why? Because I had such a vivid dream more than a month ago that I’d receive a defective electronic product from my online order and wouldn’t get a refund for the product.

But I forgot about the dream until today when this morning I received my smoothie maker and when I used it it wouldn’t turn on! It was a bummer.

In my dream I was having an argument with the people from the company and they were telling me that they can’t refund my money because I signed the ‘return form’ incorrectly. More specifically, in the “reason for return” section, instead of putting the exact date, I placed: I received the product today and returning it today, but I was delayed in sending it and sent it the day after. That was their reason.

The first half of the dream happened earlier, the second half, I’m wishing wouldn’t come true.

So back to déjà Vu, has it happened to you because I’ve had it constantly happening to me since before I was a teenager, involving little incidents with my life…

The electronic item thing was creeping me out so I finally wrote an entry about it.

Have you experience déjà Vu before? How do I remove it or enhance it?

I’ve read articles about it and some said it may be hallucination, for some, maybe.

I don’t smoke, haven’t tried smoking cigarette, I haven’t taken unprescribed drugs in my life, I’m a healthy ladeeeh, and I know this article is so weird but I’d love to hear about your experiences and thoughts.

Extreme Makeover Weightloss Edition S03 ep13

I love Chris Powell (@realchrispowell) and his shows, the one I’m watching is Extreme Makeover Weightloss Ed. Season 3 from ‘abc’ but I’m using youtube to access it since it’s not available in my country.


Watched all seasons since last year, every one of them touching, inspiring and educational. This 13th episode from Season 3 with Bob is the warmest for me it made me me realize more about life. Because although all of the clients were overly passionate and hardworking, Bob made me realize more how there will always be problems: whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you are. Problems will always be there, you’ll always feel it and see it, the thing with problems is that they come with solutions.

Being human, the way to move forward and be happier is to face problems one by one. To solve the one in front of you and move onto the next. Weight, looks, superficial, physical, emotional, material… whatever form it is, solve one first before moving onto the next.

That’s life and I guess Bob’s episode showed me that being honest with myself doesn’t have to be dramatic or heavy. Just ne honest, solve it, live then move on then solve the next one.

This is a touching reality show, I dont know Chris Powell personally but for him to have a show like this where real life is documented with real life problems  (not just weight) shared to the world and solutions offered to them is just mind-blowing and inspiring.

This guy hopefully is just as a nice guy in person as he is on TV because I admire how he just goes out there and how he knows how to handle people.

If I werent in my 20’s I’d say I wanna be just like him!

Pre.Pro.Post Workout Winkibus: flashbacks

I love working out. I especially love running and swimming, but see, swimming makes me focus more than running but running is more accessible and requires less preparation, for me and as a woman, so I tend to run more nowadays.

So I ran for an hour and just came back and I immediately blogged (while waiting for my bod to cool down for a bath.).

I am soooo lazy! But i feel like a hollowblock whenever I miss a workout schedule. Do you feel crappy whenever you planned to workout but failed to follow through?

So, i forced my ass out of the couch and ran. And now Im cooling down.

🙂 While jogging/running I thought about the difference between running when I was 10-15 y/o, compared to now that Im in my 20’s. Thing about running is that your thoughts easily come and go, because you’re active they come more freely and clearly.

It’s so weird how as we grow in years we develop flashbacks, memories. Whereas when we were younger we just run looking forward and never back.

I dont know if it’s just me and because I always run in the same path. I try to focus on my breathing but my mind wanders.

My flashbacks werent bad memories though, just things that occured in the past and I just happen to digest and understand the effects of those past actions in my current life. Ugh so weird.

Anyhow, post exercise is the best, I may be lazy sometimes but I realized that I owe it to my body, to exercise and carefully maintain the shell that house my mortal soul! Haha. How poetic was that? Im gonna end my rant here. 🙂

Be healthy everyone!

Recipe for: Tomato on a hill of coleslaw and cheese sandwich!

Homemade coleslaw: 1/2 shredded cabbage, onions, 1cup mayo, 2cloves minced garlic, olive oil, 1tbsp vinegar, pepper, cheese (go for it)

After toasting put a mountain of coleslaw on top of the toast and top it again with tomato slices and onions!

Bon appetit!
