Is there any explanation in Torah or Kabbalah about deja vu?

King Solomon declared: "That which was, will be again, and what was done will be done again. There is nothing new under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 1:9). Although this is not talking about deja vu, and there are many interpretations of the verse, nevertheless it does give some credence to the feeling that "we have been there before."


"That which was, will be again, and what was done will be done again. There is nothing new under the sun"
Kabbalistic works speak about reincarnation and the memory of previous incarnations. Accordingly, a true deja vu feeling may stem from an event or experience in a previous lifetime.
