Thoughts on the final Harry Potter movie
July 2011

--**-- This article contains spoilers --**--

It is full moon today (July 15, 2011) and I've just seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. This final movie was very well made. As with some of the previous movies, there was much reptilian imagery in this one. Viewers are shown a dragon only at the beginning however Voldemort's pet snake gets a lot of air time.

It is significant that the Sword of Griffindor is used to kill Voldemort's familiar, Nagili. In occult lore, a familiar is a magical animal that magically aids a human in one way or another. We sometimes hear about witchcraft familiars or a witch's familiar(s). In this movie we see Voldemort's familiar retracts into his being. 

Nagili is killed with the Sword of Griffindor. This is probably meant to show that the main Orion faction will triumph over the rebel reptilian group. Remember that in the second movie of the series (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), this very sword was also used to kill the basilisk, a very large reptilian creature (snake) allied with Voldemort. The basilisk also represents the rebel reptilian group. The word "Nagili" is likely related to the Hindu word for snake, "Naga".

After Harry gets hit by Voldemort's very hateful and powerful killing curse, he is set into the in-between state (between life and death). Here he meets Dumbledore who engages him in a chat about the after-life. Among the words Dumbledore shares with Harry was the phrase "help will come to those who deserve it". It seems to me this may be a kind of message to the main Orion group. This help comes to Harry's friends in the form of the Sword of Griffindor. In an earlier movie (the second), Dumbledore said "help will come to those who ask for it". I wonder if this change in wording has any significance. Is this a veiled message to particular proponents of the main Orion group?

Not only have the HP movies introduced the masses of the world to magic fantasy but in this final movie we do see a focus on the afterlife. The movie was made to make it seem as if discarnate entities will stick aroundd to indule in the life dramas of those they left behind. While this may happen in some cases, it is not the case for all discarnate entities.

After seeing all the movies in this series, it has been interesting for me to observe that in spite of all the magic taught at Hogwarts, Harry's knowledge of the afterlife seems to be almost non-existent. As a student who has been through Hogwarts, one would expect him to know more about what happens in the out-of-body state. Real witchcraft and other shamanic spiritual systems normally train their adherents in astral awareness far beyond what we've seen in the HP dramas.

Instead what we see in much of the HP movies are magical effects occurring in the physical and in the ethereal (etheric) realms. The last movie in particular shows a whole lot of dark spirals that have to do with the thoughts and movements of the "dark eaters" (the dark followers of Voldemort).

So when Harry meets Dumbledore in the in-between state (the etheric-physical state, below Monroe focus level 23), Harry correctly states that the two of them are at King's Cross station in London, this is possible. But then Harry, a famous young magician in this series, asks Dumbledore if what he is experiencing is real or if it's just in his mind. The old wizard responds with, "of course it's happening in your mind, but the fact that it's happening in your mind does not mean it's not real".

In my view this is a dubious statement. In essence, what Dumbledore says is true. At the same time such a statement cal lead some astray. If the mind is seen as the "body-mind" matrix (which includes both physical and etheric aspects) then Dumbledore's statement is true. The mind is NOT the brain. I can however imagine many viewers of the movie translating the mind to mean the brain.

So throughout the entire HP movie series we never get shown true astral realities of the fourth density (i.e. corresponding to Monroe focus levels 23 - 28). I find it cool seeing the etheric effects, despite not being shown more of the astral.

One aspect of this movie I enjoyed was the depiction of fear experienced by Voldemort. This powerful and evil dark lord is so afraid of his own death and the end of his incarnation that he creates the hocruxes, parts of his soul that Harry and his friends seek to destroy. We also see Voldemort's use of fear and domination to control his followers who can be killed by him at any time (as we see with Professor Snape). We also see Voldemort actively seeking to take away the power of the wizards not yet part of his group, just before the second "Battle of Hogwarts". There is despair among Harry's friends after they think he's dead. Voldemort says to those fighting him, "put your faith in me".

Once Harry survives Voldemort's killing curse, many of Voldemort's followers desert him, so the message here is that if Harry Potter has been able to survive the killing curse of the dark lord, especially when he was using the elder wand, then perhaps Voldemort is not so high and mighty after all.

Overall it was a very well made movie. There was a young teenager sitting beside me who was really having her "Harry Potter moment". She had arrived at the cinema with a couple of her friends, she even had her own elder wand. During the movie she kept sobbing and one of her friends kept talking from time to time. At a very sensitive part of the movie (just before Harry gets 'killed' by Voldemort) one of her friends starting whispering out and an exasperated viewer who couldn't take it anymore yelled at the trio to "shut the fuck up!!" After that the entire IMAX cinema was dead quiet, although some occasional sobbing took place.

It was good to see so many people of different ages enjoying this magical story. Hopefully more Higher Self incarnates will take this movie series as a starting point to exploring deeper interests in the occult.
