My blog this week is a bit different as I’m going to talk about films! Now I’m no movie critic and some of the finer points of script or acting might have passed me by, but the movies in question really touched me. I’ll tell you why!
I read recently that the universe’s ‘message’ can come to you in a piece of music or a movie, and wasn’t sure exactly what this meant at the time. However, later in the week I experienced not one, but two movies that seemed to help me hear that message.
The first of these is documentary by Kelly Noonan called ‘Heal’ made in 2017.
The film takes a unique look at how our thoughts, beliefs and feelings can have a real and profound impact on our health and ability to heal our mind and body. I watched the film with my husband who’s a ‘science’ guy and I’m sure he watched it just to humour me, but we both found it surprising, inspiring and credible from a scientific point of view.
It was fascinating and empowering to hear about the true stories of people who have battled chronic issues that ‘modern’ medicine had failed to diagnose or treat and I found an amazing connection to this idea. There were also scientists and doctors who had challenged and investigated the more spiritual and holistic approach to health and well being, and they talked about the scientific reasons why it actually works and we may have more control over our health and life than we are programme to believe.
The second movie was Walt Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time release in 2018.
I wasn’t aware of this movie at all, in fact I sat down with my children to watch it with no sense of what to expect. In the story a 13-year-old girl called Meg struggles to adjust to both her school and home life since her father disappears while studying the vibrations of the universe. She meets some curious characters that take her on a fantastic journey in search of her dad.
Now I have to tell you that during guided meditations I often visit a wistful and colourful ‘planet’, with beautiful scenery with fields, mountains and creatures. The world depicted in the movie was just like the place I’ve visited on those occasions- almost bringing those images to life! Anyone that knows me will tell you I’m not into science fiction at all, but I was so taken by the familiarity of the fantastical setting and this was the first thing that really grabbed my attention.
Then as the film went on it had these wonderful themes of universal vibration and the struggle with ones own pressure to be perfect, along with our perception of other people’s expectations of us. With these negative ideas manifested in the all-powerful ‘it’, an evil entity that can only be overcome with positive thoughts and unconditional love. This film hasn’t had great reviews from the movie critics, but I really connected with it and throughly enjoyed the ride!
Both these films have left a lasting impression on me and I’d encourage you to go and enjoy them both at face value. Why not allow yourself to be reassured, inspired, energised and transported to another world.
You never know how the universe is going to deliver it’s message!
