Really loved this post. Narnia had a special meaning to me as well, and I always found big closets/wardrobes magical because of it. In addition to reading the books, Aslan always reminded me of the lion from my dream. I created all kinds of associations with it. Later I learned that Aslan was supposed to be a kind of symbolism for Jesus, or a prophet. Re-reading it after I heard that added more layers. There was an adaptation on PBS many years ago that I found to be better than the movie version that came out.
