Harry Potter Overview
By Peter Lanz
The story of Harry Potter is an allegory: It is written and packaged to look like fantasy when, in truth, it is a carefully written true description of the training and work of an initiate in an occult order.
In every instance, everything Harry does is an extension of his belief system. His foundation is in magic through will. The concept that magick is an extension of will is a foundational occult truth and is diametrically opposed to the Christian concept of will where every born again believer’s individual will is brought into submission under Christ.
Everything that Harry learns is immediately applied to his life and practiced over and over. Harry learns that everything he thinks, says or does is an act of magick. This concept in magick is written out through the exercises that he does while at Hogwarts School for Wizardry and Witchcraft. Christians should be discipled that their belief system is the foundation of everything that they think, do and say. The fact is that everything we think, do and say is an extension of our belief system. It is dangerous to suspend our belief system when it comes to judging the value of what we give our children to “read for entertainment.”
Harry Potter is instilled with the traits of “Every Man.” There are characteristics of Harry Potter that every kid will identify with. Kids will defend Harry’s choices and actions as justifiable. The author is very successful in evoking strong sympathy and empathy for Harry in her readers. The books teach situation ethics rather than absolute values of right and wrong that are taught in the scriptures.
What is important to emphasize is that words have meaning and power. Words influence culture. It is impossible to read something and not be effected by it or learn something from it. It is not only foolish but it is also dangerous to dismiss the indoctrination of the adventures of Harry Potter with the excuse, “It’s ONLY fiction,” “it’s JUST a book,” something without a real agenda. The agenda of J. K. Rowling is very real — she is writing to instill in children a familiarity with occult truth — she just clothed it in fun.
For the non-Christian, there is nothing wrong with this story. For the Christian, what the author writes is considered an abomination by the LORD. (Deut. 18) See the following!

|The entire school of
Wizardry and Witchcraft is a creative visualization and exists on the
astral plane- not on the physical plane. You can’t get to it unless
you go through the portal at the train station. This is why the rooms in the

|Hogwarts School of
Witchcraft and Wizardry is organized:
|Parallels any occult order:
No one confronts the power of an Imperator.
|Harry learns how to cast
elemental spirits, demonic entities, servitors, etc., as well as
circumstances and people through spells, acts of will, creative
visualizations, and ritual spells for their own benefit. (destruction
spells, death spells)
|Book 1, p. 114: There are four
houses within the Hogwarts School: Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and
|Each one probably represents
an element. Air. Earth. Water. Fire. Since Hogwarts exists on the astral
plane, that takes care of the fifth element – ethers. We do not know this
yet by the end of book three.

personal book of incantations.

stone so he can “create” a new body for himself.
|There really is a sorcerer’s

|In Harry Potter, the “will in
action” is a strong theme that runs throughout the story line.
|The will in action is a direct
reference tot he laws of Thelma, more specifically, the first law upon
which all other laws hinge: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the
law. Nothing supersedes the will. The supreme will rules.”

|Book 1, p. 53. Harry was told that his parents
died in a car crass. Actually they were psychically murdered.
|In the occult world, people
“die” by “accident” or “natural causes.”
|Book 1, p.164. Hedwig- Harry’s pet owl. All
the students at Hogwarts get and send their messages by owl.
|Actually, Hedwig and all the
other owls are familiar spirits. In the occult — familiar spirits are
used to convey messages from one occultist to others.

dormitory room through a “portrait hole.” The portrait asks for a
password.Book 2, p. 300. The sink
– another example of a portal and how to open it up.
|Portrait hole = portal
– the opening between the physical plane and the astral plane through
which entities move back and forth. Portals open with the correct words.

uses a quill pen, ink and parchment paper to document his magical
|Standard occult practice —
all occultists learn to document their spells in the initial stages
of their training.
|Book 1, p. The author gives a description of
what is referred to as Quirrell’s master.Harry could see a face on the back of
Quirrell is strengthened by unicorn blood,
|This is a description of a
real psychic vampire. The face says, “See what I have become, mere shadow
and vapor. I have form only when I can share another’s body. But
there have always been those willing to let me into their hearts and minds.”
(Book 1, p. 293)Psychic vampires are
real. Drinking blood is strictly forbidden in the Scriptures.
|Book 1, p. 291. “There is no good and evil,
there is only power and those too weak to seek it.”
|Power is the greatest central
them in the occult world. There is no god and no devil in the occult
world. There is ONLY POWER.
|Book 1, p. “Always use the proper name for
things — fear of a name of anything increases fear of the thing itself.”
|Harry is being instructed in
how to purge fear. All emotion, in the occult world is purged out of a
person. Fear could mean death.
|Book 2, p. 20-21. Harry broke the decree for
the restriction of underage wizardry because he had just done serious
magick. He gets a reprimand. He does it again in book 3 when he attacks
Aunt Marge. (p. 28-30)
|AKA – he broke the rules of
discretion that every occultists is well aware of. Occultist NEVER break
the rules of discretion.
|End of book 2 (p. 317, 322) A young girl gets
possessed; you see a conjurative being that threatens to kill. Harry kills
a certain conjured spirit (a snake) with a special sword.
|These passages are an indirect
reference to Kaballah, the Tree of Life, the Kundalini
(snake) and the Sword of Kerubum. “SELF” is the source of
|Book 2, p. 52 mentions a “Hand of Glory.”Book 3, p. 208. Hit Wizards.||These are references to items
used in VERY NEGATIVE magick.
|Book 2 explains why Voldemort is the way he
was (a psychic vampire) in book one. Harry doesn’t understand Voldemort
until Dumbledore explains him. In trying to protect Harry from a psychic
attack on his life by Voldemort, Harry’s mother took the attack on herself
and she died. When she took on the full brunt to the attack, she absorbed
most of the energy.
Harry absorbed some to the knowledge of
|Rowling gives a perfect
description of the difference between demons and fallen angels on the
physical plane in this example of Voldemort. She writes that Voldemort
once had a body, then he didn’t now he does when he attaches himself to
other people. This is the way demonic entities exist in the physical
world. They need a physical body in which to manifest.Angels, holy or fallen, do not need physical
bodies to manifest — they can make their own bodies on the physical
When occultists repel a psychic attack,
|Book 2, p. 314-322. Rowlings describes an
occult war: Voldemort says he’s the greatest sorcerer in the world and
Harry says that Dumbldore is the greatest wizard in the world. Then a fawkes, a phoenix and a sorting hat show up to defend and fight for Harry.
Voldemort gave Harry permission to use the tools Dumbledore sent him.
Harry defeats Voldemort.
|Occult wars are fought on the
spiritual level. This story line is straight psychic metaphor. Harry found
the weakness in Voldemort’s existence and capitalized on it. There are
references to items used in VERY NEGATIVE magic.
|Book 3, p. 247. The Dementor’s kiss.||Lupin explains that when
dementors wish to destroy someone utterly, they suck the soul out of the
person through their mouth. “You can exist without your soul, you know, as
long as your brain and heart are still working.”
|Book 3, p. 250, 251. Hermione is reading a
|Book 3, p. 426, 427. Harry has a conversation
with Dumbldore regarding saving Pettigrew’s life. Dumbledore tells Harry
that when one wizard “saves another wizard’s life, it creates a bond
between them. This is magic at its deepest and most impenetrable.”
|This bond and debt is called
an ON in the occult world.
|Harry does not know that he can talk in the
language of snakes. You get an inkling of this in books 1, page 28. When
Harry has a conversation with the boa constrictor, he thinks the snake is
talking English, when, in fact, it is Harry that is talking “snake.”
The conversation with a snake comes up
again in book 2, page 194. In a class titled “Defense Against the Dark
snake is ready to attack one of the members of his group, Justin, and
Harry tells the snake to stop. The snake obeys immediately. People were
astounded that Harry could speak snake.
|Those who practice the many
forms of familiar magick have the ability to communicate with animals.
I.e.: horse whisperers, medicine men, etc.
|Book 3, p. 28-30. Harry attacks his aunt Marge
for her disparaging comments about him and his family by placing a
swelling spell on her.
|This is a psychic attack.
Harry’s lightening bolt scar on his forehead is a symbol of his psychic
strength. The lightening bolt is similar in nature to the occult “Sword of
|Book 3, p. 133. Harry’s class practices on a
bogart to remove whatever fear they have. A bogart is an entity which
morphs into whatever anyone is afraid of. It is a shape shifter and will
change itself into “whatever it thinks will frighten us most.”
|Bogarts, called something else
in the occult world, are real. They are used in occult training as
practice for conquering fear and for perfecting their craft.
|Book 3, p. 83. Harry has a confrontation with
several dementors. These creatures are similar to vampires that can suck
the positive energy out of a person. They cause a person to be confronted
with their own evil and what the person fears. Harry is not successful in
deriving the dementors away on his own. In book 3, p. 236-237, Lupin
teachers him a spell to put a barrier between him and the dementors.
|In the occult, psychic
vampires are similar to dementors. They feed on the emotional energy of
people. Fear is a strong emotion that dementors feed on.
