when one senses a feeling of reoccurance. when there is a feeling that you have already seen the whole scenario or scene that is surrounding you. sometimes these deja vu's occur in dreams. one may dream of something that at the time makes no sense but days, weeks, or months later, it happens and it all of a sudden hits you.

Is the feeling you get as though you had performed a certain action before, although you are certain that you hadn't.
People only use 34% of their brain's capacity on a daily basis. Deja vu is probably a sudden case of psycic ability for a short amount of time, therefore, making you believe that you had performed the action before you had actually done it. It's just that you had seen yourself do it a split second before you had actually done it.

The feeling that you are doing something that you've already done before. Literal translation "already seen" (from French, deja 'already', vu 'seen'). Apparently it's due to a blip in your brain process which gives you the illusion that you've been somewhere/done something before, and technically, you have - a fraction of a second ago.

However, a common misinterpretation of deja vu is a repeat of a certain event. For example, in an episode of Garfield and Friends (US Acres) Orson perpetually removes the same book (Deja vu: the feeling that you are doing something that you've done before) from a box of books over and over again. This is NOT deja vu; rather, it's an event that doesn't have a forseeable end: an infinite loop, if you will.

If you walk into a room and immediately get the feeling that you've been there before, then that is a case of deja vu.
When i stepped out the door and looked at the sky, i immediately felt like i'd forseen this. wow, deja vu. looks like its going to be a very interesting day...

Déjà vu is the really odd feeling you get when you see something happen the exact same way twice, or when you have done the exact same action before, and are doing it again. Usually the basis is completely improbable, like the other side of your mind is insisting that you could not have possibly seen the thing before.

Déjà vu is also a very kickass J-Pop song by Dave Rodgers.
When I held the sniper rifle in my hand for the first time, it felt like I'd been practicing with it forever. Such déjà vu.
