Harry (11) - PoA (1)
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is very
clearly the struggle of the new soul to break the
chain to the astral plane of the wrathful universe,
the world of Lucifer.
This is only my opinion, of course, but to me it's the
recognition of the teachings of liberation. What I
really hope is that other people will describe what
they recognise in Harry Potter.
There are possibly many people reading this who have
no idea of what I mean by the astral plane, and so I
will provide some background information to help them
understand and visualise.
The astral plane is the plane of emotions and desires.
Every plane has its own atoms and forces, and the
atoms of the astral plane are a bit like sparks of
fire of different colours. They are of course
imperceptible to the ordinary five senses, but they
can be perceived by our "sixth sense", by our
"feelings". These atoms can pass through physical
atoms and can move very much faster than them. All
creatures with a consciousness have an astral field
around them, which is often called the astral body or
Astral atoms are moved by a force we call desire or
emotion. When we desire something, we create a force
which attracts astral atoms of a certain vibration.
For example if we have a strong desire for money we
will attract atoms which correspond in vibration rate
to that desire. If we strongly desire to help other
people, this creates a force which attracts astral
atoms of a much higher vibration.
A clairvoyant person can see these atoms rushing in
and out of our astral body, as each vibration radiates
a different colour. With one glance people who have
this sight can see what sort of a person they are
looking at. A spiritual person will have a lovely
light blue radiance; an intellectual person a bright
yellow one. People with base, selfish desires and
emotions will have very muddy, dark colours. A person
suffering from depression will have an impenetrable
grey cloud around him. A person with a new soul,
symbolised by Harry Potter, will have a breathtakingly
beautiful golden aura. Harry has a lot of gold!
Another extremely important property of astral atoms
is that when a mental image is projected into them,
they take on the form of that image. To understand
this very clearly, think about the Defence against the
Dark Arts classes dealing with the boggart. These
lessons are perfect for understanding life in the
astral plane! Lupin tells his students to concentrate
on a form which makes the boggart look ridiculous.
That's exactly what happens on the astral plane! If
you project a powerful mental image accompanied by a
strong emotion or desire, you will create an astral
form just like your mental image. Jo KNOWS!
As I've pointed out in previous posts, when we lose
our physical body and our etheric body, we go on
living for a few years in our astral body. This means
the astral plane becomes open to us and we can travel
throughout its many sub-planes, provided that we can't
enter planes which are higher in vibration than out
own personal key vibration. Obviously people with a
low key vibration will have a rather unpleasant time
while those with very spiritual vibrations will live
in a land of light, happiness and spiritual
companionship. The stories about hell and heaven are
based on this, and the film, "What Dreams May Come",
with Robin Williams is an excellent representation of
life in the astral plane.
Once a person is conscious in the astral plane (you
don't have to be dead though) he can also learn to
change his appearance. Once again, by intense
concentration on a mental image, accompanied by a
strong desire, a person can change his astral field to
resemble anything he likes. Jo demonstrates this by
her description of the animagi. They have learnt to
adopt the forms of animals. Transfiguration lessons
are exactly the same sort of thing. In the astral
plane you can change a teacup into a turtle.
Jo is also very careful about what she tells her young
readers about the astral world. For example crystal
gazing is extremely dangerous for the astral body,
but, as we know, she ridicules this practice. Harry,
the pure new soul born to the seeker who is thirsting
for God, sees nothing in the crystal ball! Another
indication how Harry Potter is NOT OCCULT! (We loves
I'm very grateful to John Granger for pointing out to
the world that Book 3 is about emotions. Exactly,
John! The book begins by describing how Harry loses
control of his emotions when his aunt tries to
desecrate the memory of his parents, and ends with
Harry's supernal triumph over his emotions.
In my next post I will try to show how amazingly
beautiful Harry's triumph is, and how we can all share
in his emotional liberation.
