The Best Awakening Movies List

The Best Awakening Movies List

(Photo credit: From the movie “The Fountain”)

It’s surprising how many movies have themes that we really can’t fully grasp until we’ve had our consciousness expanded. The question has to be asked: how many of these producer/director/writer teams have full knowledge of what they’re creating?

We’re sure there are more movies out there, but these are the ones we’ve seen that have left us hopeful for the media of tomorrow.

NOTE: We are always updating this list with new titles, so let us know if you have a suggestion to add to the list!

Cloud Atlas – This is first on the list because it is so fresh in our minds. The film shows a handful of people as their stories intertwine throughout multiple lifetimes, with each person playing different roles for each other in the reincarnation cycle. Having seen this many times already, in each viewing we still discover a new layer to the web of connectedness among the characters.

In Your Eyes – TWIN FLAMES??? This movie is so great, we were really happy to find it: all about the life-long telepathic connection between two people from “opposite” ends of the socio-economic spectrum.

Wake Up (documentary) – We LOVE this one! Follow the story of Jonas, who has an awakening and learns to navigate and expand his understanding of the world. You’ll probably identify with much of what he experiences.

K-Pax – How many starseeds and walk-ins can identify with this beautiful movie?! Kevin Spacey is well-cast as a new arrival to Earth from his home planet, K-Pax. The plot (and his hilarious love for produce) made me a little homesick.

The Fountain – Incredibly moving with astounding cinematography, The Fountain connects two people throughout three lifetimes, and the search for eternal life. This is another movie I’ve seen multiple times, and every time I cry.

Interstellar – It’s hard to describe how perfectly this movie fits into this list without spoiling the ending; Interstellar is said to be one of the most scientifically accurate sci-fi films to date, and it also deeply matches what we know of our current ascension process. It’s three hours long and we weren’t bored once!

The Matrix – When I went through my awakening, all I could think was, “Wow… the Matrix is real!”. You’ve seen the meme hundreds of times: Which pill do you choose?

Avatar – A futuristic return to native, ancient sacred ways of existing harmoniously with each other and with nature. Hopefully there’s a less apocalyptic way to achieve this New Earth here.

I Heart Huckabees – Detailing the many aspects of an existential breakdown in a completely hilarious and human way, this is one of my absolute favorite movies, ever!

Chronicle – Three teenage boys happen upon a mysterious glowing object which gives them telekinetic powers. As each begins to explore their growing abilities, their perspectives of the world shape their trajectory. We chose this movie because it mirrors what our ego can do to our Awakening when not rooted in love.

Lord of the Rings Trilogy – Set in Middle Earth and filled with sorcery, magic, and fairies, this film explores many aspects of mastery within the 4D realm.

E.T. – Phone home!!

Contact – Jodie Foster as a scientist who deeply wants to connect with life “out there” on other planets, which for her is also a way to connect with her father who passed away when she was a child. If you haven’t seen it, the journey she takes at the end is incredible – you may have experienced something very similar in your own journeys;)

The 5th Element – Yes its true, the 5th (dimensional) element is Love.

Phenomenon – An “ordinary” man experiences a sudden expansion of consciousness, and psychic and telekenetic abilities after seeing a strange light in the sky. The abilities and subsequent isolation he experiences mirrors the Awakening journey that many have or are currently going through.

Harry Potter Series – I would love to have all of our schools be just like Hogwart’s!

Limitless – In this movie, a pill allows Bradley Cooper to access all of his brain, and thus helping him fulfill unlimited potential.

Happy (documentary) – Instead of studying depression, these psychological innovators study happiness! A documentary that takes you around the world to discover what makes people happy.

Waking Life – When are we dreaming, and when are we awake? Which part of our lives is the illusion? Filled with eye-opening discussions and beautiful animation.

The Truman Show – No coincidence, we think, that Jim Carrey starred in this story of people playing “God” and controlling a very illusioned and dense 3D life. Followed Jim Carrey’s deeply profound spiritual realizations lately?

What Dreams May Come – When we realize that hell is only our loss of empowerment and that love is the key to “heaven”, we unlock the full potential within.

Groundhog Day – In an awakening we come into full knowledge that we are able to step out of the karmic cycle in this lifetime, with intention and awareness. Bill Murray gets to experience the karmic life cycle in just one day, until he gets it right!

What the #$*! Do We (K)now?! – Especially for the scientifically-minded, this movie explores quantum physics and spiritual potential.

Kumare (documentary)- Are we following a guru, or are we trusting our own guidance? Kumare turns out to be an incredible teacher in a way he might not have intended, as he gradually becomes what he sets out to disprove.

Into the Wild – A true story of the journey into the exploration of full liberation. How far do we wish to explore the edges of the envelope in our quest? Is death the end, or just the beginning?

The Secret – Though it feels a bit focused on materialism, this movie teaches many great fundamentals on how we manifest in our lives. Want to go deeper? Check out Esther Hicks, who’s wisdom channeled through her guides created the original basis for this movie.

Celestine Prophecy – Ok, so the movie is pretty, um, cheesy… but still illustrates the concepts of energy and moving into 5D really well. I highly recommend the book for the full story, which is brilliant and ahead of its time!

The Shift -Spiritual author Wayne Dyer’s mind and heart-stirring compilation of ancient wisdoms as a way to find our deepest fulfillment.

Hereafter – A psychic who is unable to shut off his gift of knowing, a woman who has an Awakening after a near death experience, and a little boy who looks for the truth about what has happened to his brother after death… box of tissues!! (Plus some cheesy moments, but overall, beautiful.)

I Origins – A molecular biologist seeks to disprove the existence of God through his experimentations. In his mind, he succeeds – but a karmic relationship pushes him to change his perception of reality, spirituality, and reincarnation. (Thanks for the recommend in the comments section, Davinci!)

  1. Just found this page and I was about to suggest the OA as well. Absolutely riveting. Makes you feel things, like suddenly someone has spoken in a language you haven’t heard in millennia.
