Hello, everyone. I don't know much about witchcraft, so I'm sorry if
these seem like dumb questions. I am curious. I know it's fiction, but
how much (if anything) in the Harry Potter books/movies is based on
Wiccan reality? I'm sure there really isn't a Hogwarts or a Ministry
of Magic, and the characters are certainly fictional, but I'm thinking
of the magic: spells, curses, potions and the like. Is there anything
in the books that would be dangerous if someone tried it? Does anyone
know if the books' author is a Wiccan? I think the Harry Potter books
have done a lot to portray witchcraft in a positive light, with
likeable, sympathetic characters, which is certainly a welcome change
from the typical "Halloween costume" evil hag stereotypes/caricatures
found in fiction and film.

Nicholas Flamel, an unseen character in the first Harry Potter book, was apparently a real person who lived centuries ago. Try doing a Google search on his name. Whether the sorcerer's stone part is anything more than legend, who knows?

hi! i dont believe jk rowling is a practitioner of the craft, and i dont honestly think that much of what is written in the potter books resonates much with those who ARE. it is standardised fare really. if you want to begin searching for information about the craft of the wise, why dont you try witchvox? they are helpful, and you will find far more information there.

blessed be

My opinion? ANYTHING ones creative mind can conceive and write in retrospect might and could be true.

That's why I have never written slasher or similar distasteful scripts.

Something like HARRY POTTER is harmless -- it reiterates the powers we all have, but are named "witchcraft" by primarily the Church and others who fear those of us who can harness the Power of the Universe. They don't want us to ... because THEY haven't figured out how to do it, yet.

I think that Harry Potter too is harmless, imaginative and fun. The worst I can see are kids recreating potions out of hose-water and flowers out of mom's garden to 'create' their imaginary places. I think i'ts a stretch to say that there is an underlying correlation between witchcraft and the movies/books of Harry Potter. It's like saying that the Teletubbies are really gay, and turning your kids into becoming gay and living a 'sinful' life, and wasn't' there something about Barney being some sort of terrorist or something? Then there was that album by the Beatles when you played it backwards, it said said something about John was dead. Always an undercurrent of evil in anything, or at least some will find it. How many signs of the end of the world have weird religious people predicted that have come and gone based on just normal stuff that has no basis in reality. I can tell you that I hung a HUGE string of garlic right in my front door and it did NOT deter Jehovah Witnesses. Two grains of salt and one cup of coffee please. I need to wash my brain! lol

The truth really is sometimes as simple as simply being the truth. No evil intentions whatsoever.

The mass effect of human imagination in these fiction stories that become popular with many people,seems precognitive in many respects...
Or is it that our future reality is actually created by such things?
The effects of mind on Quantum reality is already well proven in science.
Why wouldnt we take the extrapolation to its ultimate ends?(If any)
The fact is that literature, and the human condition seem to cross each other after sifficient time has passed....
The fanciful stories are eventual realities for our grand children....Do we ourselves create this reality of the future through mass concentration on the fiction of today?
Of course the whole gamut of futures does not miraculously apear in their vast variety,But the most concentrated upon by the masses may have a great effect on the actuality of our future.
Just a thought perhaps incomprehensible but its late as of this writing...maybe i just need sleep....

This is like the "chicken or the egg" question.

Do we create by writing/producing it, or did it exist, and we just tapped into a story that has already played out somewhere ... maybe not even on earth, but somewhere?

I tend to think that if we can think it and share the thought, a lot of minds thinking the same thing can really manifest something physical. That's why we have to all be very careful what we think, and how we share it.

The druids, who clashed with the Inquisitors of evangelical mission, had no schools to speak of and wrote nothing down, still their 'universities' were considered superior even to those of Rome - until, they were destroyed by the superior propaganda value of the written word.

Pixies, are said to be druids. Druids who rejected Christianity and are too good for hell and not good enough for heaven.

I personally think the little people, whether they're pixie's or leprechauns or sprites, are just another form of Life that shares time and space with us from time-to-time. They're probably dimensional beings whose paths intersect our part of the time, which is why they can disappear after being seen or photographed.
