Thoughts on the final Harry Potter movie
--**-- 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.
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
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
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.
