Reclaiming the Spiritual Symbols that Have Been Hijacked and Used Against Us

Reclaiming the Spiritual Symbols that Have Been Hijacked and Used Against Us  120

Angela Pritchard Waking Times

Spiritual symbols are powerful. Beneath the veneer of social norms they are being used in a hidden war. Not only have dark forces propagated the symbols of black magic into millions of unsuspecting homes, but additionally many of the world’s great spiritual symbols of light have been demonized.

For thousands of years forces of darkness have tasked themselves with the aim of destroying spirituality and suppressing consciousness. They have infiltrated spiritual groups, organizations and schools (such as the Freemasons, the Catholic Church etc.); have hijacked their spiritual texts, teachings, symbols and knowledge; and have then shut it away, distorted, destroyed and suppressed it.

What we have been left with is a trail of smeared esoteric knowledge and infiltrated spiritual schools throughout human history, where spiritual symbols of light are given a bad name, inverted and used against us.

All is not what it seems

The way they have used symbols can give a good insight into how those behind the destruction of spirituality do their work. Sometimes they make good seem bad by demonizing and creating negative connotations with good. Sometimes they make bad seem good by glamorizing and glorifying what is bad. And sometimes they hide the bad within the good by working behind and through structures that are good on the surface.

All of this creates a mass of confusion where people who don’t know any better are turned against the knowledge of the light (the very thing that can help them), idolize things of darkness, and devote themselves with the best of intentions to institutions that are not what they seem. It is then a very serious thing to look deeper into the matrix.

Cosmic origins

Symbols have an origin deeper than many suppose. They are not just there to convey an idea or concept. They contain universal principles, which is what gives them their powerful properties. For example, many of them can be found in the movements of the cosmos—the planet Venus traces a pentagram in its movement in relation to planet Earth every 8 years, the swastika is found in the movement of Earth through its annual solstices and equinoxes, and the yin and yang is a map of the light and dark halves of the year.

So why are cosmological symbols like the pentagram and swastika now associated with evil, and genuinely dark symbols, like the upside down crucifix and number of the beast, so in right now?

Symbols used for darkness and for light

Countless near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, ancient texts, religions, spiritual wisdom traditions, and now even areas of scientific theory, have confirmed that there are other dimensions of co-existence that are populated by beings—both angelic and demonic.

Everything we can see around us, including ourselves, is multi-dimensional—it’s just that we are usually only aware of the physical part. Like everything else, symbols that are drawn here are visible in other dimensions, and according to the symbol, can attract or repel other dimensional forces and beings.

“The average person does not even suspect the occult properties of emblematic pentacles. On this subject the great Paracelsus has written: ‘No doubt many will scoff at the seals, their characters and their uses, which are described in these books, because it seems incredible to them that metals and characters [symbols] which are dead should have any power and effect. Yet no one has ever proved that the metals and also the characters as we know them are dead, for the salts, sulphur, and quintessences of metals are the highest preservatives of human life and are far superior to all other simples.’”

The symbols of darkness marketed into millions of homes

The fact that symbols and numbers which attract dark entities are being used more and more in pop culture doesn’t just indicate that there are dark forces behind these industries; if it did, there would be little advantage to those promoting them. Instead, their promotion brings these symbols into millions of homes, even billions, around the world, where they attract forces and beings of darkness into the lives of unsuspecting people.

The symbols of light are trashed and ridiculed

On top of this, the symbols that attract the powers of light are also demonized and trashed (along with those who use and teach about them). Esoteric things for good are made out to be kooky, cultish and weird, whilst the dark symbols and rituals of evil are promoted as fashionable and cutting edge. Because symbols of light have the power to attract the forces of light, they also have the power to banish the forces of darkness. Stigmatizing them strips away the ability for people to use symbols of light to defend themselves against evil forces.

In this way humanity is being both deceived and dis-empowered.

A 101 on the dual use of the most common spiritual symbols

One tell-tale way to pick a symbol of black magic is if it is a symbol of light but inverted. Darkness, in a spiritual sense, is light inverted; thus it too has its own power for those who learn to access it. Those who awaken in light utilize the powers of light and goodness, whilst those who awaken in evil utilize the dark side of the universal energy (the “dark side of the force” as it was referred to in Star Wars).

This snapshot from the music video ‘Die Young’ by pop singer Kesha is a good example
 of how symbols of light are demonized. The symbol of an upright pentagram hangs 
in an old church where Kesha engages in orgiastic acts.

Because the nature of darkness is the inverse of light, it follows that dark symbols will be those of light inverted.

“In symbolism, an inverted figure always signifies a perverted power… The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed.”

The Pentagram

The pentagram so synonymous with evil and witchcraft, is really a deeply cosmic one found in the movements of Venus (the Morning and Evening Star) in relation to the Earth.

When pointed downwards it attracts demonic entities. It represents the fall of the human being into hell/the abyss, and the rule of matter (the upper four points of the star) over spirit (the one downward point).

“This figure (the pentagram) is the time-honored symbol of the magical arts, and signifies the five properties of the Great Magical Agent, the five senses of man, the five elements of nature, the five extremities of the human body. By means of the pentagram within his own soul, man not only may master and govern all creatures inferior to himself, but may demand consideration at the hands of those superior to himself. The pentagram is used extensively in black magic, but when so used its form always differs in one of three ways: The star may be broken at one point by not permitting the converging lines to touch; it may be inverted by having one point down and two up; or it may be distorted by having the points of varying lengths. When used in black magic, the pentagram is called the “sign of the cloven hoof,” or the footprint of the Devil. The star with two points upward is also called the “Goat of Mendes,” because the inverted star is the same shape as a goat’s head. When the upright star turns and the upper point falls to the bottom, it signifies the fall of the Morning Star.”

An upright pentagram symbolizing spirit over matter and the ascent of a human to heaven.

When pointing upwards, it is the human ascending towards heaven/the spiritual realm, matter under the guidance of the spirit, and the unification of the human with divinity. Today it is still used to repel demons (I personally wear one and hang one in my room)—so is it any wonder it has been turned into a symbol of public scorn and suspicion?

The pentagram is a good example of how demonic entities take the knowledge of light and truth, and distort it to destroy it. As you will read below, they have also hijacked many other spiritual symbols in this way.

The All-Seeing Eye

The Latin beneath the pyramid reads ‘knowledge is power’.

The hallmark symbol of the “powers that be”, the “New World Order” and “Illuminati”, is the all-seeing eye. It appears this once ancient spiritual symbol became hijacked when Freemasonry was infiltrated. Today it has been distorted to have another sinister meaning.

When used by the hidden hands behind the “New World Order” it symbolizes the knowledge of darkness, which is accessed and kept by a few elites who use it to control the rest of humanity beyond their comprehension. The logo of the first attempt to set up a national surveillance network by DARPA was the all-seeing eye atop a pyramid. The phrase that accompanied it – scientia est potentia (knowledge is power); the knowledge of the “dark side of the force” also brings with it huge power, and demonic entities use it to control others.

The design is very similar showing that this eye was really used to symbolize 
an inner spiritual vision given by the pineal gland.

But this symbol, which surfaced in ancient Egypt as the eye of Ra, also has a spiritual meaning – one that empowers a human being rather than enslaves. It represents the inner spiritual eye, sometimes called the “third eye”, and includes the pineal gland—now well known to be linked to our connection to higher realities and states of consciousness. It is depicted as one eye as there is just one of them (not like our two outer eyes), and looks incredibly similar to the design of the Egyptian eye of Ra. This third eye can be awakened through a spiritual work and allows someone to see and perceive beyond the material world.

Pyramid

The Great Seal on the United States dollar bill. The monetary system brought in along with 
this has created a debt with it that is enslaving the world.

The symbol of the pyramid is usually accompanied by the “all seeing eye” which sits at its peak. Again the pyramid has a dual meaning.

To the “New Word Order” the pyramid is the hierarchy of power and of evil. Demonic entities work within a hierarchy that extends from other dimensions, into the physical world. This is why the eye is often seen separated from the rest of the pyramid, signifying the real control coming from beyond the material plane.
Reclaiming the Spiritual Symbols that Have Been Hijacked and Used Against Us  131

Spiritually the pyramid can represent a number of things. They have been built by ancient spiritual cultures around the world where they were extremely sacred places. Whilst they were later taken over by degeneracy and sinister forces, pyramids originally signified the descent and ascent of consciousness on the path to enlightenment. A triangle itself represents the three forces of the cosmos that are central to spirituality: the Father, Mother and Son of the universe, represented in sacred trinities throughout the world such as the Christian Joseph, Mary and Jesus, and Egyptian Osiris, Isis and Horus, that are unified within in the spiritual work.

Crucifix/Cross

Like the pentagram the cross is another symbol that when upright is of light, and when turned upside down/inverted is of darkness. The upright cross has appeared not just in early Christianity, but in many different spiritual cultures that preceded it including ancient Briton, and ancient Egypt as the ankh.

When inverted, like the pentagram, it is the fall of the human being into hell/the abyss. Although many argue it originated from the way Peter the disciple was said to have been crucified, which was upside down, it is also used in black magic. Demonic entities wish to see every human being enter hellish regions, and to destroy the spirituality of the cosmic Son wherever and whenever it has appeared. This is why you’ll find sinister powers promoting and relishing in the distortion and destruction of sacred spiritual teachings and symbols like the crucifix.

When upright the cross is the tree of life—the conjunction of the three forces of the cosmos: Father, Mother and Son. It is a symbol of the inner death of the ego and the resurrection of a person to the imperishability of the spirit.

Left Hand vs Right Hand

In esoteric literature there are many references to a left-handed path, and a right-handed path. Initiates of darkness walk the left-handed path and are symbolized with a left arm or leg crossed over the right. Initiates of light walk the right-handed path and are symbolized by a right hand crossed over the left.

Depictions of someone with their arms crossed over their chest can be found as far back as ancient Egypt, where pharaohs and deities were portrayed with their right arm crossed on top of their left, revealing the truly benevolent original source of the civilization’s incredible knowledge.

Swastika

The movement of the earth in its rotation, which is found in the ancient symbol of the swastika.

And finally the swastika, which is one of the most stigmatized symbols that exists today due to its use by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. This is a prime example of someone who was interested in esotericism (Hitler), but who obviously had no spiritual level and instead caused its mass demonization. The swastika has been depicted throughout numerous ancient cultures, including most famously Hinduism. It is not an evil symbol at all whether spinning clockwise or anti-clockwise, but portrays a cosmic principle of movement.

Taking back the heritage of sacred knowledge from the hands of darkness

The destruction of the knowledge of how to awaken consciousness is absolutely central to the work of darkness. The smear campaign that has been waged by demonic entities and their initiates in the physical world against those with the knowledge of how to awaken spiritually has been fought since recorded history. On one hand initiates of light struggle to bring peace, freedom and enlightenment to the world. On the other, initiates of darkness seek to destroy their efforts and instead enslave humanity. To this end, schools of light and knowledge have been infiltrated, smeared, persecuted, and destroyed from within, their symbols inverted, distorted and demonized, and texts outlawed and suppressed.

That’s why today we are witnessing black rituals at music awards, the perversion and distortion of spiritual symbols in pop culture, the erosion of the values that came to society from spirituality, the utter emphasis on raising generations absorbed in materialism from birth, and the move to a humanist one world religion that is stripped of any esoteric (empowering) knowledge.

We can however, take back the ancient heritage of knowledge from the hands of darkness. Spiritual symbols are by their nature an intuitive and universal language that can be understood once more. And at this point we have an important choice to make: we can either gain the knowledge of the cosmic principles that these symbols contain, or remain unaware and influenced by those who use this knowledge for dark purposes.

The remains of “witches” burned at the stake for killing children in the 17th century were found by archaeologists

The remains of "witches" burned at the stake for killing children in the 17th century were found by archaeologists 150

In the Polish city of Bochnia, archaeologists unearthed the charred remains of two women. The discovery was made during restoration work in the local market.

They are believed to have lived approximately 300 years ago. According to scientists, it is known that in 1679 three women were burnt in this place. So far, two skeletons have been found, but experts have no doubt that they will soon find a third one, according to Express.

Researchers believe that the victims were accused of witchcraft and murder of children. After that, they were probably burned in the city market. Such punishment was common in the Middle Ages, from the 5th to the 15th centuries. Historians believe that the public burning allegedly showed “witches” going to hell.

Archaeologists will continue to investigate the remains, but they have already stated that the women were buried right at the place of execution. According to experts, in that era it was customary: people convicted of such a crime could not be buried near the church.

According to historical sources, at least 13 women accused of witchcraft were executed in Bochnia. Before the execution of the sentence, they were kept in the neighboring town hall and, most likely, tortured in order to get a confession of their deeds. In addition, the archives contain the names and crimes of the “witches”.

Which castle in Europe is considered the most mystical: you will be surprised

Which castle in Europe is considered the most mystical: you will be surprised 151

Many castles have survived in Europe, which to modern people seem incredibly beautiful and majestic. Their main purpose was to deter enemies if necessary.

That is why such factors as a good location, a moat, a rampart and other opportunities to repel potential enemies played a strategic role.

However, there is one architectural object that does not fit into the traditional framework.

Which castle in Europe is considered the most mystical: you will be surprised

The majestic is one of the most famous landmarks in the Italian region of Apulia. Moreover, it will not be an exaggeration to say that this is the most mystical castle in the world.

Unlike other mystical places, this amazing castle is not hidden from prying eyes behind the mountains and forests. On the contrary, it is visible from afar. You drive along the freeway and see it, towering on top of the hill.  It doesn’t matter that the name of the building is translated as “castle on the mountain”, only those who have never seen real mountains in their life can literally take the name Castel del Monte. 

It was built on a castle on the very spot where the Maria del Monte monastery was located until the thirteenth century, hence the first name of the building, which few people remember today – castrum Sancta Maria de Monte.

Today, crowds of people frequently visit Castel del Monte. For this, many thanks to the magical world of cinema and the Italian director Matteo Garrone in particular, because it was in the unusual halls of this monumental structure that he settled the characters of his “Scary Tales” – the king who raised a flea, and the princess whom the eccentric father married to a cannibal. Curiously, until the twentieth century, the castle was in an abandoned state, and shepherds spent the night there. 

Today, the architectural structure is in the care of UNESCO, as a result, it was cleaned and put in order, but the interior decoration of the halls was not preserved – for that reason, Matteo Garrone had to hastily fill the space of the premises with the props brought to the castle.

Garrone chose Castel del Monte for the film adaptation of the tales of the Neapolitan Giambattista Basile for a reason, because this place is incredibly mysterious. Although located 16 kilometers from the city of Andria, Castel del Monte bears the honorary title of one of the most famous medieval castles in the world, in essence it is not a castle.

The fact is that in the understanding of a normal person of the Middle Ages, a castle could only be built for one of two purposes. The first goal, it is also the main one – defense and terrain control. In this case, one or another lord erected a small fortress, as a rule, on the top of a mountain, which helped to repel enemy attacks, and at the same time to influence the situation in the region as a whole. The second task is a fortified place to live. Sometimes castles grew to the size of cities, take, for example, the same Carcassonne, but their powerful walls, again, made it possible to hold back hordes of enemies.

But Castel del Monte is not intended for defense at all. Where are the walls and the moat with water? Where are there any decent defenses? 

This place also seems to be of little use for life. Of course, even Walter Scott in his “Ivanhoe” wrote that the concept of “comfort” did not exist in the Middle Ages, but this castle, even by medieval standards, is far from the home of a self-respecting lord. It’s okay that all the rooms inside are connected to each other, but, most importantly, there is no place for a stable and there is no kitchen. 

So, most of all, the castle looks like a kind of an old art object, built for the sake of ideas, such houses are sometimes designed by modern architects who have received absolute carte blanche for the implementation of their creative ideas coupled with an unlimited budget.

This association is quite appropriate if you know who built Castel del Monte. The castle was built on the mountain by the Emperor Frederick II Staufen – a legendary person in all respects. He not only managed to win the title of Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire from competitors and lead the sixth crusade, but was also considered one of the most educated people of his time. 

He knew Greek, Latin and Arabic, founded a university in Naples, where not only Christians, but also Jews and Arabs taught, and this, by the way, is the height of tolerance by medieval standards. Frederick II as a whole was very far from Christian prejudices, here are illustrative examples: the emperor insisted that doctors study anatomy on corpses, and Frederick also had a warm attitude towards Fibonacci and even organized mathematical tournaments.

The emperor also had a penchant for writing: he is credited with writing an essay on falconry, and at his court he created a Sicilian school of poetry. At the same time, like all progressive people of his time, Frederick II was an admirer of a wide variety of mystical teachings, studied astronomy and astrology. 

With the personal life of the emperor, everything was also interesting, he earned the reputation of Bluebeard, because he was married four times, however, the church did not recognize his last marriage with his permanent mistress Bianca Lancia. Frederick II spawned a great many children – 20 legitimate, but for obvious reasons, no one scrupulously counted the bastards.

Historians still cannot solve the riddle of the Italian Castel del Monte, to which scientists have many questions

Castel del Monte was built by Frederick II from 1240 to 1250, that is, in the last decade of his life. The name of the architect is unknown, but many historians, not without reason, believe that he was the emperor himself – a painfully intricate design was the result. 

The fact is that, like many medieval mystics, Frederick was obsessed with the number eight, which symbolizes infinity, and it is constantly traced in the structure of the castle.

To begin with, the castle, when viewed from above, is a regular octagon, and an octagonal tower is erected at each corner of the structure. The shape of the inner courtyard of the castle also repeats the octagon. The castle has only two floors, the roof is flat, and the main entrance to Castel del Monte looks strictly to the east, because, as it was believed in the Middle Ages, the good news came from the east.

There are 8 rooms on each floor of the castle, all of them are connected to each other, so that Castel del Monte can be easily walked around the perimeter. The rooms are made in the form of trapezoids, and windows are cut through the walls. Toilets, wardrobes and spiral staircases are located in the corner turrets. 

By the way, the castle has a separate story with the stairs – usually in all castles they are “twisted” to the right, since this is optimal for the defense of the object, but in Castel del Monte, on the contrary, they are “turned” to the left, that is, the way it does nature, because it is to the left that the shells of mollusks or snail shells are twisted.

All rooms of the castle are exactly the same, the rooms differ from each other only in the location of the doors and the number of windows. In the decorative elements, the number eight again dominates: on the capitals of the columns there are eight leaves each, on the bas-reliefs in the rooms there are eight leaves or clover flowers.

Another interesting thing is that direct rays of sunlight fall into the windows of the second floor twice a day (with the first floor, this rule works only in the summer), so many assume that the mysterious castle is nothing more than a huge sundial, and at the same time astronomical device. 

In addition, twice a year, during the summer and winter solstice, sunlight is evenly distributed among all rooms on the ground floor. This, of course, is also no coincidence, so many historians suggest that the first floor of Castel del Monte is a kind of analogue of the solar calendar.

Here’s another curious reason for thinking – twice a year, on April 8 and October 8, the sun’s rays pass through the windows of the castle into the courtyard in such a way that they fall strictly on the part of the wall where in the time of Frederick II a certain bas-relief was carved, now lost. 

Well, and to make everything quite difficult, it is worth remembering that October in the thirteenth century was considered the eighth month of the year.

The castle bears the title of the most mysterious at all because there are many ghosts or other manifestations of mysticism

Frederick II died before he could finish the construction of the castle – the building of Castel del Monte was completed, but the interior decoration was not completed to the end. After the death of the emperor, there were legends in Europe that Frederick did not die, but disappeared in an unknown direction in order to reform the church and establish universal brotherhood and peace.

 A certain symbolism is seen in this, because the octagon, repeated in the structure of Castel del Monte, in the Middle Ages symbolized the transition from the world of the living to the kingdom of the dead, and at the same time the union of heaven and earth.

Everything is very simple here – a square was considered a symbol of the earth, a circle was a symbol of the sky, and an octagon was an intermediate figure that signified both unity and transition. However, scientists far from mysticism believe that the repeated use of the octagon is simply a reference to the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, because Frederick II saw the dome over the cornerstone during his crusade.

Historians are confused by the dubious architecture of the object – in such a castle there was not a single chance to hide from an armed attack. No protective mechanisms were used during the construction.

In addition, the building itself boasts the ideal shape of a real octagon. The castle has also 8 turrets.

Scientists did not fit the theory that this castle was used by noble people in order to rest there after hunting. Castel del Monte looks too monumental and luxurious for this.

Some historians suggest that the purpose of the mysterious castle was to comprehend the secret sciences

Castel del Monte has encrypted and biblical symbols. The fact is that the castle has exactly five drainage basins and five fireplaces, many associate this with the phrase of the Baptist John from the Gospel of Luke:

“I baptize you in water for repentance, but the One who follows me is stronger than me; I am not worthy to bear His shoes; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

 So, it is easy to assume that Castel del Monte was for Frederick II an analogue of the temple, built according to his personal project, and this fully meets the ambitions of the emperor.

By the way, this hypothesis is confirmed by another curious detail. If you look closely at the entrance to the castle, you can see a giant letter F encrypted there. If inside the tomb of Frederick II, associations with the pyramids would be inevitable, and so Castel del Monte seems to be a kind of personal portal of the emperor, erected according to his plan and in his honour. 

At least when you stand in the courtyard of the castle and, with your head raised, look at the sky, imprisoned in an octagon of powerful limestone walls, even the most inveterate materialists have a feeling of belonging to the medieval magical tradition. 

The energy of this place is special, in the style of those “Scary Tales” by Matteo Garrone.

Occult symbolism of the 2020 Vatican nativity scene

Occult symbolism of the 2020 Vatican nativity scene 152

On December 11, the Vatican unveiled its 2020 nativity scene in St. Peter’s Square. And as soon as the red drapery covering the stage was removed, the crowd found a towering, brutal and totem-like angel Gabriel watching them, along with an astronaut and a masked executioner (yes, those guys who kill people on death row).

Let’s say the applause after the opening was “polite”. Here are some images of the nativity scene.

An ominous angel looks down at the crowd while Jesus remains in the red cloth for a while (not sure why). Behind the figures is a neon light that should probably look like mountains on the horizon. However, at first glance, it looks like a lightning strike in a nativity scene.

Occult symbolism of the 2020 Vatican nativity scene 153
An astronaut and a masked executioner are also included in the nativity scene.

In a press release, the Vatican Governorate announced that the nursery “is intended to be a sign of hope and faith for the entire world, especially during this difficult time due to the health emergency related to COVID-19.”

But this did not bring “hope and faith” at all. In fact, almost all observers hated it.

Occult symbolism of the 2020 Vatican nativity scene 154

It is as if the Vatican purposely created something so ugly that devout Christians hate the play depicting the birth of Jesus. Satanists couldn’t have done better.

Ugliness with weapons

This nativity scene, titled “Monumental Christmas”, was originally created between 1965 and 1975 by students and teachers of the F.A. Grue art school in Castelli, Italy. The original work contained over 50 pieces, but only a few were selected for the Nativity scene at the Vatican, and they chose the horned-masked executioner.

The “Monumental Nativity Scene” is considered a tribute to the world-renowned pottery works of the Abruzzo region and gives a postmodern twist to the classic nativity scene.

In a conversation with a local newspaper, Italian art historian Andrea Chionchi asked if it was “a nightmare or a masterpiece.”

“Forget the sweet face of the Madonna, the tender radiant incarnation of the Child Jesus, the paternal sweetness of Saint Joseph and the pious miracle of the shepherds. For the first time in the middle of the colonnade, Bernini, the Vatican erected a work of the sixties in a brutal postmodern style.

The figures resemble the masks of the ancient and ferocious Samnites, the ancestors of the Abruzians, who professed a pantheistic, animistic, fetishistic and magical religion, somewhat reminiscent of the Andean goddess of fertility, Pachamama.

Castelli’s “Nativity Scene” is an outdated work, the product of a strongly ideological art school. The work offers a depiction of Castelli ceramics that is definitely not true, given that this remarkable art is renowned for its formal elegance and refined, subtle decorative inspiration, which are completely absent here.

References to Greek, Egyptian, and Sumerian character sculptures suggest a liberal historical-critical method of interpreting Scripture. Liberal Bible scholars have hypothesized about various aspects of the Bible as an adaptation of pagan cultures, and not as a result of divine revelation.

Although “ugliness” is subjective, this nativity scene almost tries its best to be as unpleasant to the eye as possible, which in turn is unpleasant to the soul. At least one could say that this scene is anti-Christian. I mean, who’s actually going to pray to this thing? You just can’t. And that’s kind of a target for the twisted minds behind this thing.

Moreover, in addition to its general ugliness, the nativity scene also contains many symbols and historical references that convey a rather egregious message: it is actually an anti-Christmas scene.

Anti Christmas

Usually in the center of the nativity scene is the baby Jesus. However, in this case, Baby Jesus is essentially a random toddler who just stands there and looks like a giant cork.

Occult symbolism of the 2020 Vatican nativity scene 155

WORSHIP ME

The focus of this play is not Jesus, but rather the angel Gabriel. It is surrounded by a massive halo, while Jesus still stands there like a giant cork. In addition, the angel rises above everything on a ribbed pillar. The overall shape of this column closely resembles an important symbol of Ancient Egypt: the Jed Column.

Occult symbolism of the 2020 Vatican nativity scene 156
Right: A Jed Column dedicated to the goddess Hathor.

Jed is a common symbol in Ancient Egypt believed to represent the god Osiris, or rather his spine. While this symbol probably has an esoteric meaning in relation to the chakras (which are said to be based on the spine), the Jed also has a phallic character and is associated with fertility rites. In fact, the “erection of the Jed” was an important ceremony in ancient Egypt.

The erection of the Jedi ceremony is to symbolize Osiris’ triumph over Set. During the ceremony, the pharaoh uses ropes to lift the pole with the help of the priests. This coincided with the time of year when the agricultural year began and the fields were planted. This was only part of a 17-day celebration dedicated to Osiris. In general, the ceremony of the erection of the Jed personified both the resurrection of Osiris and the strength and stability of the monarch.

Did the Vatican trick its believers into witnessing the Jed Ascension ceremony? One thing is for sure: the Egyptian influence of this den sit well with what is immediately behind it.

Immediately behind the nativity scene is the obelisk of St. Peter (originally from Egypt).

The general plan of the Vatican is Egyptian magic in plain sight. The phallic obelisk (representing Osiris and the masculine) faces the womb-like dome of St. Peter’s Basilica (representing Isis and the feminine). The same exact layout can be found in various power centers of the world, including Washington, DC.

In Washington DC, an obelisk (Washington Monument) faces the dome of the US Capitol.

In Egyptian magic, the union of masculine and feminine principles (Osiris and Isis) gives birth to a “star child” (Horus). From an esoteric point of view, this star child is a powerful magical energy.

The hieroglyph representing Sirius, the most important star of occult symbolism (read my article on this here), consists of three elements of the Egyptian trinity: an obelisk, a dome and a star.

So, the Vatican has an obelisk and a dome. Where is the star completing this trinity? It is there, but you have to look from above.

The Obelisk of St. Peter is located right in the center of the eight-pointed star, also known as the Ishtar Star.

The eight-pointed star also adorns the Christmas tree that stands next to the nativity scene this year.

Speaking of cosmic things, the Vatican nativity scene also depicts an astronaut. Why? God knows.

It seems that the astronaut is holding / giving birth to something. There is also an eight-pointed star on the helmet.

Given the fact that this figure was created between 1965 and 1975, this may be a reference to the 1969 moon landing. But why in 2020 did the Vatican choose this thing to stand next to Jesus?

It is even more incomprehensible why an executioner in a horned mask is standing next to Jesus?

Even he thinks to himself: “What am I doing here?”

In ancient times, executioners carried out death sentences for lawful convicts by chopping off their heads. In some cases, they wore grotesque masks with dark and menacing features to further intimidate prisoners, depersonalizing them as a person. In short, it is an odd figure to be placed next to the newborn baby Jesus, especially considering the fact that Jesus himself was ultimately sentenced to death.

Apparently this guy is here to represent the “Vatican’s opposition to the death penalty.” This is a rather weak argument that makes little sense. I mean, I’m pretty sure the Vatican is also against methamphetamine. Should they also add a methamphetamine dealer to the nativity scene?

In the scene literally called “Christmas,” this horned figure represents death. This is the complete opposite of “Christmas”. I don’t think Satanists would have done better by desecrating the scene depicting the birth of Jesus.

Finally

In a sense, this year’s nativity scene is a sad reflection of 2020. This is a collection of expressionless and socially detached figures who do not interact with each other, standing under the neon lights of phones and computers.

It also reflects how the occult elite has raised their ugly head this year, poisoning every aspect of our lives with their toxic program. Through their outspoken anti-Christian demonstration, the elite sought to prove that its toxic ideology was also ingrained in the Vatican.

Although the Monumental Nativity scene was created several decades ago, it was chosen for the Christmas scene in 2020 for a special reason: it contains certain symbols, conveying a certain energy. Like everything else that has happened this year, this scene demonstrates the control of the elite and the demoralization of the masses.
