Visiting or Shifting to Hogwarts

Whether or not you wish to shift, we have great news: The Hogwarts we have come to know and love through the Harry Potter films is one you can visit through its several filming locations.

This post does an excellent job at explaining where you can find the real-life counterparts of many iconic Hogwarts locations.

That’s right – you can easily frolic in Hogwarts’ corridors, sit in some classrooms, and even marvel at Draco’s iconic sitting tree (here) in real life, without needing to shift.

But if you aren’t able to travel right now to Harry Potter filming locations in Scotland or England, then the next best thing might be reality shifting with Hogwarts as your Desired Reality (or DR).

What exactly does that mean? Let us explain…

What is Reality Shifting?

While the concept of shifting realities is not new, it has gotten a lot more attention recently thanks to TikTok, where many users are freely sharing their experiences “shifting” and helping others do the same.

In brief, reality shifting is the practice of shifting your consciousness from your Current Reality (CR) to another reality, usually your Desired Reality (DR).

While many methods exist for reality shifting, commonly those who shift speak about a mixture of meditation, listening to subliminal playlists, and creating a detailed “script” of one’s desired reality which (while not mandatory) is said to ease the shifting process significantly.

Is Reality Shifting Real?

There is (understandably) a wide spectrum of opinions about whether or not shifting realities is actually possible.

On one end, skeptics think it is (at best) a vivid version of lucid dreaming, a form of dreaming wherein the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming, and therefore able to control their actions and behaviours as they would in real life.

On the other end, adamant supporters of reality shifting believe that when shifting realities, you are indeed shifting your consciousness to an alternate reality that exists for real, much as our current reality is real.

No matter where you lie on this spectrum, you’re likely still curious about the possibility of shifting realities, or (since you’ve clicked this article), the possibility of reality shifting to Hogwarts and the Harry Potter world in particular.

So, how does it work?

Reality Shifting Methods

There are many reality shifting methods out there.

If you’re curious about reality shifting methods that will help you get home to Hogwarts, here is an overview of the most popular methods. You can also visit this list of shifting methods for a more complete overview.

The Raven Method

One of the most popular reality shifting methods often referenced on TikTok is “The Raven Method”.

This method involves laying in a starfish position on one’s bed and counting to 100, usually with subliminals playing or with positive affirmations said between numbers.

The Alice in Wonderland Method

Another very popular reality shifting method is known as the Alice in Wonderland Method.

This method involves meditating and then laying on your back and imagining yourself sitting against a tree until someone from your Desired Reality runs past you, at which point you’re supposed to chase them until you “fall down the rabbit hole”.

You are then meant to find a key that will unlock the door to your DR.

The Pillow Method

The Pillow Method is another reality shifting method gaining popularity because of its relative simplicity.

This method involves writing down affirmations on a piece of paper, repeating them before bed and sleeping with the paper under your pillow.

The Elevator Method

Lastly, the Elevator Method has been another very popular shifting method.

This method involves imagining yourself in an elevator, with energy levels going higher and higher with each floor you pass. Once your energy gets to the level it needs to shift, the elevator doors will open up to your desired reality.

Shifting to Hogwarts Script Ideas

Now that you are familiar with some of the popular shifting methods you can use to get to Hogwarts, the next step is to create your script.

A script is said to be a way to write down concrete details about your desired reality. You can use visuals if you wish, write it down on paper, write it in your Notes app, or however you choose.

The main purpose however is to nail down aspects of your desired reality. Some script their desired Hogwarts House, skills, back story, love interests, etc.

Others also script practical matters like the passage of time in your DR vs your CR, the methods in which you return to your CR, the fact that you cannot die in your DR, etc.

Again, while scripting is not said to be mandatory for reality shifting to occur, most avid “shifters” use a script and recommend others do the same to ensure clarity, ease, and in some cases, even safety.

But what exactly goes into a script?

While every script is different and there is said to be no right or wrong way to create one, many users online have shared script ideas to help others with their shifting journey.

  1. As someone who has not shifted (but has been very close) and is in the community, I think this article is pretty good and well-researched. But for anyone looking for more shifting info- PLEASE do not go to TikTok. There’s a lot of misinformation and negativity over there so please be careful. Reddit and Amino are much better. Of course be careful on there too.

      • No you don’t need to be scared of reality shifting, its just all in your head, your can put an alarm on when you want to get out or your desired reality or you can make up a safe word so when you say it yogurt out of your desired reality.
        you can make up anything about it, your own perfect world. I have shifted and its quite interesting.

        • I have a question. So when you go into shifting what do you think about/what does it look like. Like when you are trying to go to your waiting room I try and see it in my mind is that what I say I should do in my script and say subliminals but I either just fall asleep(I do it at night) or can’t seem to go there or I’m just thinking about it and not really “dreaming”/just imagining random nothing so what do you suggest I try and do?

          • When i go into shifting I think about where I am going to wake up in. I think about the weather, surroundings, time who will be there. I sometimes repeat parts of my script in my head to remind me and help me visualise it better. I know it may seem like your imagining it but you’re keeping your mind busy while your body is kept still and isn’t moving (falling asleep) and than slowly it will appear!!! Bright lights, flashing lights, smell, sound (piano or whatever you have scripted)

      • Hey Kyle, this isn’t fake. It is honestly amazing. Dont be scared. I was scared when I first started but when I did it, I realised that there was nothing to be scared about. You can live out your dream and nothing can stop you. Have fun xx

      • The main thing to keep in mind is that its ok to have doubts. The key thing is to accept the fact that you have doubts. I doesn’t matter how many people have said they have shifted, you have to experience it for yourself to know its real. I’m telling you right now that shifting is real, but you don’t really know that unless you experience it for yourself. If you ever feel yourself doubting while your trying to shift, just tell yourself ” I know I am doubting, I know its ok” then let it go. You will shift. good luck 🙂

    • hi ! it’s been awhile since i have been thinking about shifting and i was just wandering a few things: when you want to stop going to your dr, like you end your life there, how are you supposed to do that ? and i want to shift to hogwarts, but english is only my second language, i am scared of that… if you could answer i would be very glad, thanks !

      • you can script to be able to speak any language you want 🙂 you can completely make a new person up when shifting as long as you script it so its easier for you to remember. I scripted a whole new person who can speak many languages to shift to hogwarts. Dw you got this xx

  2. I apologies if you’ve already done this, but would it be possible to do an article on how to reality shift with a friend? Other than my small request, this was an amazing article! I’ve been wanting to try this for a while, so this helped out a bunch! thanks a whole lot!

  3. i just want to know how to wake up back in your cr. like if theres an alarm going off in your cr or someone telling you to wake up from your dr, do you wake up automatically? lie on tiktok (i know you cant believe everything on there but im just curious), someone said that you can have a safe word when you want to wake up again in your cr, but im not sure if thats true or if youll just wake up automatically.

    • Can you make it so a day passes in hogwarts when 1 hour passes in real life or something because I wanna be there for quite a while?

      • You can script that. I do 1 hour on earth=3 days there but you can do however much you want. It is also a good way to know the time in your actual reality because you can compare how long you have been at Hogwarts for 🙂

  4. i am dutch, and i would like to shift to hogwarts but the people in hogswarts speak english and are english how do i do that? write an english script?

    • You can script to speak english as well. When you script you can say : I can speak : English, Spanish etc…

      You write the script however you want as long as it helps you understand it better :))

      Dont worry YOU GOT THIS!!!

  5. ok guys, my question is how to get out of there then? I mean, I want to try it, but I’m afraid to stay there for a couple of months, and can I repeat it later? Do I have only one chance to go there or can I do that a couple of times?

    • You can go there as many times as you’d like, as far as I heard. And to get out of there, you probably need a safe word though, only because if something bad happens, you can get out of your DR (Desired Reality), and no, there is no way you can get stuck in your DR.

  6. thank you so much whoever wrote this! You are a true witch/wizard. This has been a great help with shifting and it is so much easier for me now!!

  7. Hiii so my question for anyone whis done anything like shifting or been close is : is there any side effects? Do you feel sick at all falling asleep or feel sick the morning and day after? I’m only scared that I’m going to feel sick in any way. Other than that I’m CRAZY EXCITED I MIGHT MEET DRACO AND I FREAKING LOVE HIM so ty to anyone who answers

    • There are a few side effects. I’ve had a headache the next morning which is supposedly a good sign. You might feel a bit dizzy but there is a high chance that won’t happen. You won’t be sick as its mostly mental and nothing bad will happen 🙂 I usually have a shower and meditate before i go to bed to calm myself and listen to a few subliminals. Smelling lavender helps as well ESPECIALLY drinking water. During shifting you may see flashing lights, shapes moving, hearing voices, smelling a scent (you may have scripted to smell cinnamon when you shift) DONT freak out and try stay calm. It’s very exciting seeing these signs because you feel close to shifting but getting excited wrecks it and can easily lose your focus.So focus on your breathing and otherwise happy shifting luv <333 YOU CAN DO IT

  8. Hello, I have a few questions. First of all, I’m kind of scared like a couple people even if I know its all in my head. I’ve tried the Raven method and I actually felt like i was being transported to another reality. Because I am kind of scared, I am going to do the pillow method. Can I just put my script under my pillow or I really have to put affirmations? And if I have to put affirmations, how many? Thank you 🙂

  9. might be a stupid question but, when you use the pillow method, do you keep a real sleep ? or is it more like a nap time, you can’t do it for your night because you won’t rest ?

  10. SO i am wondering if you are somewhat or someway die in that DR would something happen irl too or should i be scared

    • No, if you die in your DR you will not die in real life. If you are worried about it though, you can script that you can’t die.

  11. i have a question, it might sound strange but how to we get out like is there a way to get back to normal reality? or does someone have to wake me up??

  12. thank you so much for the help to the person who wrote this today I will try and shift for the first time and see how it goes so wish me luck cuz Ill need it ty!!!!!! 🙂
