Everyone loves a good movie! The problem is, everyone has a different opinion of which movies should be termed “good!” But one thing we’ve learned is this: Regardless of the movie, there is always a deeper message to be found. We love to look at movies from a deeper, more spiritual level, interpreting them metaphysically to see what we can discover about ourselves and our soul growth.
From a highly spiritual perspective, a metaphysical interpretation of ANYTHING means seeing people, places, things, and events that happen ‘out there’ as human and spiritual qualities, talents, and abilities, beliefs, habits, etc. within us. So any movie can be interpreted as symbolizing what is going on inside of us. The people, animals, events, set, costumes, locations, etc. can be seen as qualities and traits within us.
Here’s the process:
Step Two: Write a 1-3 sentence synopsis of what you feel the overall theme of the movie was, from a literal point of view.
Step Three: Create a list of the key things that stood out for you:
- Set/costume/design elements
Step Four: Look back over your list of key things, and ask yourself the following question for each item on your list:
What might this person, place, or thing represent within me?
Step Five: Review your responses, and then create a 1-3 sentence synopsis of the movie from a metaphysical perspective.
For an example of how we have metaphysically interpreted some popular movies, check out these past blogs:
We affirm that you will never view a movie in the same way again! No matter what the movie is, you can always discover a deeper, spiritually-enriching meaning — as you walk the spiritual path on practical feet.
