Do you love movies? I sure do. But, I love realistic movies that seem scientific or logical in nature, but actually give proof to a higher power. There are many movies out there that hint at spiritual practices, but I’ll only be covering a few, or the ones you should watch.
So where do these screenwriters get these ideas? It’s not just creativity, but I believe it comes from the source. A highly gifted spiritual friend of mine taught me a lot through the years. She has natural abilities that I can only dream about. She once told me that creativity comes from the source. And in a way, this made sense.
I’ve recently questioned if we make our thoughts? Or is something else puts the thought into our heads? I have yet to figure this out, but I do believe something (spirit guide) drives our gifted creativity. Without further ado, here are five movies that contribute to spiritual notions from the way that I perceive spirituality and the movies. Don’t worry there are NO spoiler alerts.
Is the Hunger Games spiritual? Well, its not about spirituality, but the concepts completely relate to the spirit world. In the movie, there is the “game keeper” who creates obstacles or challenges to the people involved in the games. And guess who also does the same stuff to us humans? Spirit guides.
The movie also gives validity to the “Destruction and Creation” notion. Catniss, a compassionate person for humanity and human rights knows that evil cannot persist on the planet for euphoria to exist. She knows that evil must be destroyed for humanity to thrive. Although hard to perceive in real life, this notion is a hard reality of humanity. Something has to go in order for something else to thrive. Do you think dinosaurs and humans could’ve existed on one planet? Absolutely not. Just watch Jurassic Park.
A Winter’s Tale
I absolutely love this movie. Colin Ferrell’s character becomes a better person because of his spirit guide, a white horse, and falling in love with a lady. The movie also goes through each character’s destiny and depicts angels and spirit guides that occupy in human bodies that are sent here on earth. The movie goes through battles of good and evil and how all debts must be repaid. When we start to understand the complexity of humans, their psychology and feelings for each other, you can begin to understand that there are debts or soul contracts that must be fulfilled.
This movie is about World War Two. Since the war is recent in terms of human history, we tend to have a liking toward understanding the war and Germany. In the movie a young American man is sent to be a tank shooter. He is small, thin and genuinely a good soul. He worked in intelligence and sent to Brad Pitt’s tank commander group. Brad Pitt’s character forces tough love and the reality of war on the young man. The young man falls in love with a German girl (feelings are mutual) who fatally dies after their meeting. The young man had knowledge of palm reading and read her palm stating, “You will have one great love in this life.”
How this relates to real life is that our souls are sent to each body for a mission and chooses each life to learn lessons, no matter how hard or cruel the reality is. And with the poor young lady, her destiny was to experience the great love, and she did. Although a short life and love experience, that was her soul’s mission.
Remembrance is a Nazi concentration camp love story where a Polish man named Tomasz falls in love with a German Jew named Hannah. Despite the ups and downs of escaping a concentration camp, the two are eventually separated although both are madly in love with each other. I don’t want to spoil the movie but later in life the two are reunited. Why is this spiritual? Because we hear so many love stories where people are reconnected after decades of being separated. Somehow life finds a way. This may be “random” or a designed plan from the universe.
This movie was really cute and made countless references to astrology. The indie film opened with a girl doing yoga on the beach and celebrating her 29th birthday when she encounters her Saturn Return. She eats macrobiotic and does not consume any mainstream or products with chemicals. The movie looks at her life during her Saturn return and how obstacles occur and relationships fall apart including her emotions. Once she reached 30 and Saturn moved on life became calmer and more fluid. This is spiritual because we all go through Saturn returns. Plus, we all experience good and bad years, which has a strong astrological influence.
