So, it is approaching the Winter holiday season and I am sleepless at 4am and thinking about seasonal stories and movies such as "A Christmas Carol" and "It's a Wonderful Life". These are wonderful stories and the obvious Non-Physical(NP)/OBE qualities contained therein cause me a certain fascination. Then it strikes me, the NP qualities of another movie- "The Wizard of OZ". That movie has some incredible NP theory going on...

Now don't immediately search the movie...let's hear some ideas on the Non-Physical, OBE-like aspects of this movie...

Thoughts?

A Christmas Carol is my absolute favorite (1984 movie production). I watch it several times around Christmas.

For the Wizard of Oz, here is one from me -  the tornado, house spinning in the air = vibrations

 This will be fun!  smiley

 If I can start, I will name one and that's the Tornado that acts as the "Vortex or Portal" that leads to the World of Oz itself!

 Many times in my own NP adventures Tornados are used as "board sweeps" or complete "scenario changers". They are definitely life changing events here in this physical realm as well.
 At first I feared them in my NP adventures. Then I was sucked up by one of them and found it was indeed some kind of portal that could be utilized.

Ooo, I've got one just don't ask why. You know the three little dudes that sing to Dorothy before she begins her trip down the yellow brick road. Notice how they vibrate, she could have exited at that point but stuck with it.

It's a Wonderful Life. When our main character jumps off the bridge: time travel, missing time, portal?

This is fun grin

Toto unveiling the curtain exposing the trickster magician ('god') and his machinery.

Same as we in the atral can do with many so-called negs or fear-related beings or events.

Pull back the curtain, show no fear and reveal what is really 'behind' them.

How about the transition from black and white to vivid technicolor? Does this represent perception of the mundane Physical Reality changing to the Non-Physical? Or from the monotone Etheric Plane to the much more vivid Astral Plane?

Yes. It kind of compares to the grainy images becoming ever more vivid in full color, sometimes "technicolor", as we get deeper into a good NP focus.

 All of those suggestions by everyone above are great comparisons!  smiley

The tornado is definitely a symbol of portals/vibrations/ roaring/exit sensations. The images that flash by her window strike me as hypnogogia. The shift from black&white to color suggests transition to the astral. Toto the dog is an interesting possible psychological aspect, maybe of Dorothy's curiosity, getting her into various situations but eventually pulling the curtain back on the great and powerful Wizard.

What could the ruby red slippers represent and the fact that Dorothy took them from the Wicked Witch?

Does anyone know that the "Rainbow" song was initially cut from the movie? Three times!!! The most iconic movie song of all time almost didn't make it into the final version! Have a read-

That's intersting EV. Would have been very sad for that song not to have made it into the movie.

One more interesting fact about that song that is only personal to me. The first time I watched Wizard of Oz. When Judy Garland began singing that song I very distinctly heard it sung differently. I loved the version I heard in my head. Many years later Israel Kamakawiwo sang the exact same version I heard in my head.

I read somewhere that that occurrence with the song being different was one of those "Mandela effect" things!  huh undecided

 I listened to Radio talk show the other day and they spoke of a number of things that were deemed the "Mandela effect". One that really shocked me was from the James Bond movie where Jaws, one of the bad guys, falls off a ski rope wire into a home above. Jaws is basically indestructible, so he lives. He comes out of a home that he fell through when he fell and he sees this petite pretty woman. He then looks at her and smiles, showing his enormous metal teeth (which gave him his name Jaws) and she smiles back at him and reveals her "braces". It was love at first sight. But now, you can't find that anymore. I was confused by that because that scene basically justified and kind of explained why they would have feel in love at first sight. He is a towering giant and she is just this small little thin girl. But the sight or each other's "metals" made it perfect.
