DEJA VU is an awakened familiar reminiscence of place, or in the case of meeting a stranger, an uncanny feeling of recognition.
We have an unmistakable sense of prior knowing that person or place — though the encounter is seemingly, in this life, for “the first time.”
Invisible entities called “elementals” or “elementaries” in Theosophy, can be thought of as “orbs of influence,” in the sense that such hidden entities attach to and manifest hidden patterns of intention.
They are attracted to, mirror and preserve fields of information — reflecting the influences, beneficent or maleficent, of persons, places and things. The Greeks called them Muses.
Similarly, “sacred space” and “spirit of place” are ideas that, for man, refer to a lingering spiritual resonance of certain locations.
