THE HARRY POTTER SERIES – An Exploration of Multi-Dimensionality?

The Harry Potter series: An epic story about the dismantling of the inter-dimensional dark matrices.

This is not so much a review of the Harry Potter movies as it is a spiritual analysis of the series in general from my point of view. Some of my friends told me that the Harry Potter series was very spiritual. I innocently enjoyed reading the books and viewing the films and never thought about it until I watched the very last film in the Harry Potter series (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2). It hit me that the Harry Potter stories are all about dismantling the dark energetic patterns in the astral plane. I’ve recently been studying the experiences of people who inter-dimensionally travel and how they work in inter-dimensional realms during sleep and while awake.

So what do I mean by dimensions? First of all, the 2nd dimension or 2-D describes a flat existence that consists of height and width and the 3rd dimension consists of height, width and depth. The 3-D world is what we experience when we confine our perceptional experience to what we can see and feel. Then there is the 4th dimension, where the 4th element is time, according to physics. So physics has acknowledged higher dimensions up to 11 which is described by string theory. (Please don’t ask me about physics.).

There are also dimensions within dimensions which are described by physics as multi-verses or universes within universes. Sometimes they are referred to as Parallel Universes. From an experiential level, one finds these other multi-universes by visualizing being “sideways” or “next to” the dimension where we currently have our focus. In such dimensions, we may contact the beings in the elemental kingdom, where earth spirits reside along with the fairy kingdom. We may also contact others in a parallel dimension to work out problems or to visualize the best outcome for a situation and find the solution has manifested itself in our current reality or dimension.

An example of other dimensions is Harry Potter’s school, Hogwarts, which is located in another dimension and we see this when students take the train to Hogwarts. The Hogwarts Express is at platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross Station. People who are relying on their 3-D perceptions cannot see platform 9 3/4 and in order to get there you must walk right through the wall of the column that separates platform 9 from platform 10.

There is nice example of parallel universes or a Fifth Dimensional experience where Harry has a seemingly near-death experience and goes to a luminous white world where he resolves his relationship with Professor Albus Dumbledore. (Thank God for the Harry Potter Wiki site so I can review this extremely detailed story.) The film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 beautifully portrayed this.

And how about inter-dimensional travel or astral travel? My understanding from my research and experience so far is that the 4th dimension can sometimes be seen as a parallel universe to our 3rd dimension and contains many levels in which one might travel during sleep and while awake. Some of these levels contain energies from unresolved emotional issues, ghosts or souls trying to figure out how to go to the next level, and 4-D beings including good and bad aliens who take a look at us and sometimes try to guide or manipulate us and what’s happening on Earth.

All over the Harry Potter series are examples of how other inter-dimensional or 4-D beings, ghosts included, help Harry and his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, on their quest to dismantle the dark structures in their current dimension. In the last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry has to find the Horcruxes which are objects that hide parts of Voldemort’s (the dark lord and oppressor of the wizardry dimension) soul. Destroying the Horcruxes destroys Voldemort’s power and soul piece by piece and thereby frees up the wizard’s dimension.

I’m not sure exactly how those of us who travel to different dimensions during our sleep time help to dismantle the dark energies in different dimensions. I am not yet aware of my role in this project. But I have heard, if you wake up tired from a good night’s sleep, you have been doing a lot of inter-dimensional work during the night. One spiritual blogger says that we break up the dark energies into smaller chunks with our light. And as we can see, the outdated, unfair, dark systems in our world are falling apart. People are waking up and realizing how ridiculous government’s and corporations’ behavior is becoming and how unrealistic and un-life-supporting our social systems have been. The battle between good and evil is so ingrained in our psyche and our entertainment media. Harry Potter is currently one of the epic stories that deals with this legendary battle, which may really be happening behind the scenes in different dimensions.

I’ve looked at some other spiritual interpretations of the Harry Potter series and came across one that talks about Harry as the “chosen one” but I don’t want to go there with this. I’m into developing self-empowerment and realizing our greatness and infinite capabilities. So I say that Harry is a reluctant leader, showing all his fellow students that they also have the power to change the dark into light. Again, this was nicely shown in the final installment of the Harry Potter series. And we may be reluctant leaders in our 3-D world, but when we travel into the other dimensions during dreams, sleep time, waking, etc… we are the spiritual warriors neutralizing the dark forces and liberating the light, however that may manifest.

Finally, from a filmmaking perspective, I think the Harry Potter films have great special effects, acting and art direction, but they are the Reader’s Digest version of the books. I always find the story in the film seems quite rushed and hard to follow, but the books are so easy to read and filled with great detail that gives wonderful emotional depth to the story.

I want to close by saying that I’m not an expert on inter-dimensional travel or inter-dimensionality. And the links I provided to give more explanation for the terms in my blog are meant only to relieve me from having to write a book on the subject(s). I do not necessarily endorse all the ideas in these links. I only use them to create an easy reference to definitions of my terms. So I leave it up to the reader to form your own opinions. And I hope this blog serves as a springboard to more discussion and research into the existence of other dimensions.
