That’s right. Panache Desai, one of the world’s most renowned spiritual healers FAVORITE book? Is Harry Potter. And he says in his interview with Oprah Winfrey on Soul to Soul that we all have a bit of Harry Potter in us.
As you all know by now, I’m a HUGE Harry Potter nerd. I’m a member of one of the biggest Harry Potter meet ups in the country, the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army. We are celebrating our FIFTH year in existence, and I was recently involved in a poll asking what made LADA magical for us, individually.
LADA is magical for me because it’s real. The wonderment and the excitement of the Harry Potter universe never fades for us. We have become a family through fandom. It’s difficult to pick a most memorable moment, since the group ALWAYS strives to make each event, big or small, the best event possible. But, I will never forget my first meet up. Book Club. I’ve never met a more nerdy, geeky or friendly bunch of people in my life. And I just fell in love with everyone.
And that same day, my good friend Nadia Fay showed me the video above of Panache talking about Harry Potter being inside all of us, and I couldn’t have explained it better myself and I was so very anxious to share his thoughts about it with everyone here.
He says that every single one of us was born with that Lightening Bolt scare. We were all born with that innate specialness. Which is why the Harry Potter series has resonated with everyone around the world so — magically.
It’s the 15th Anniversary of Harry Potter this year, and I thought that this couldn’t have been posted at a better time. The covers were redesigned by Kazu Kibuishi, who did an amazing job! Some of the LADA got to meet him this year too!
So, remember my nerdlings, we are all as special as Harry Potter inside. And that both makes us unique and brings us together. Wands UP!
Share with me your special Harry Potter moments with tweets and comments! I’d love to hear how nerding out over HP has made your life MAGIC!
