Here at HOI we have realized metaphysics is going mainstream and couldn't be more tickled about it because we love that people are becoming empowered to manifest and direct their minds! We love that people are recognizing concepts like the law of attraction more and more and we love that even our astrology candles are being bought by major stores nationwide. Not only does this keep our doors open to be able to help the community here but we are also able to offer our classes globally on HOI.TV (the metaphysical Netflix) to help empower the world. The power of words is something deep esoteric seekers are aware of and it's very apparent in the Tarot as well, swords represent words and using them to create or self sabotage. We wanted to give you some movies that can inspire you that further show how metaphysics is truly going mainstream! Here's our top 5 even though there are far more! While this is not a movie review blog, I felt that the power of these movies could
1. Dr. Strange (spoiler alert) - A money obsessed neurosurgeon gets too arrogant and wrecks his car destroying his ability to use his hands. His only hope at healing is going to the East and visiting a spiritual guru who turns out to be fighting the dark side and upholding the forces of light in the world. He learns, "it's not about you," and takes on a deeply selfless role to help humanity. This shows how magic and rituals have been hidden and that intention is extremely important. It shows that magic can be used for good or for not.
2. The Matrix - Most of you have seen this but may not have realized how it depicts the veil and mass consciousness that is swayed by media and controlled by greed driven large corporate entities. This movie was way ahead of it's time and can help you free the shackles of your mind. There's a great book called 'The Matrix Warrior' that breaks down the underlying metaphysical themes you can check out online!
3. Cloud Atlas - This star studded cast of a movie depicts reincarnation and shows how people meet the same souls in different lifetimes to learn lessons. The ideas that come from a woman from the future tie the whole story together to show the interconnections of all things and break down the time space continuum. Say what?! It's deeply esoteric and really exemplifies the concepts of quantum physics. This is a must see and it was blocked from awards probably because it was so far ahead of it's time!
4. Thor - This movie depicts the 7 rays which is a deeply spiritual and ancient concept that has been taught in mystery schools and mystery lodges. This type of occult knowledge was just given to the public without holding back in this brave movie with Natalie Portman playing a physicist who is researching quantum phenomena and finds someone from another dimension. It's by far one of my favorite movies and helps show the concept of multiple dimensions really well!
5. Gods of Egypt - Last but not least was a Hollywood depiction of the demigods that used to walk among us. They added a romantic story for flare and to keep the attention of the public as well as cheesy one liners for comedic relief. It shows people the archetypes that live in the psyche of group consciousness that we all must be initiated through. This movie is definitely worth watching to understand even now how these power struggles are going on in society.
In case you didn't know what to do this weekend, now you have some ideas! We love to see this integration of these formerly hidden concepts now being given to the public. It's wonderful that we can safely release these concepts as that was not always the case. We hope you enjoy them and find inspiration from them!
