July 29, 2012
Below are images from the 2012 XXX Olympic Games Opening Ceremony and some references to occult symbolism. I actually didn't watch the ritual…I'm sure there was much more included than what is referenced here. This is a follow-up to the first article on the Olympics which provides the background information to what is discussed below:
Image Above: See any resemblance to Freemasons and Masonic Altars?
Image Above: More Masonic Imagery
Image Above: A reference to the river Thames, a serpent or a scene depicting the Pillars of Hercules?
Image Above: The Pillars of Hercules are sometimes described as a "gateway" or "portal". In Dante's Inferno, when describing the circles of hell, Dante mentions Ulysses and his voyage past the Pillars of Hercules. Ulysses justifies endangering his sailors by the fact that his goal is to gain knowledge of the unknown. After five months of navigation in the ocean, Ulysses locates Purgatory but encounters a whirlwind that ends up sinking his ship.
Image Above: The "Twin Pillars" have great occult significance. They are regularly seen in ritualistic ceremonies involving the Freemasons and Illuminati.
Image Above: During the ceremony there was some verse spoken from the Shakespearean play "The Tempest". There are many different intertwining themes in the play, but the basic storyline is this: Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan and his daughter Miranda are "cast away" to a remote island. Prospero plots to "restore" Miranda to her "rightful place" by using "illusion and skilful manipulation"
Image Above: Cruella de Vil
Image Above: Cruella de Vil's country house was nicknamed "Hell Hall"
Cruella de Vil is a fictional character and the iconic villain from the novel "The Hundred and One Dalmatians". In the story, Cruella kidnaps Dalmatian puppies for their fur. In one version of the story, it is revealed that the reason Cruella chooses to skin puppies is because the fur of older short-haired dogs is very coarse and less desirable, therefore it doesn't sell as well in the fashion industry as the fine soft fur of puppies.
Cruella de Vil's name is a play on the words "cruel" and "devil" so as to turn them into a French-sounding woman's name. Her country house was nicknamed "Hell Hall". In some translations, Cruella De Vil is known as "Cruella De Mon"...to change the word "devil" to "demon" because the word devil in some languages does not have a clear meaning. In Italy, for example, she is called "Crudelia De Mon" (a pun on "crudele", cruel, and "demone", demon). In the French translation of the Disney's animated movie, she is referred as "Cruella D'Enfer" (Literally, Cruella of Hell or from Hell).
Interestingly, the character of Cruella de Vil often comes to life (manifests) in various forms of modern entertainment (i.e. Lady Gaga, above).
Image Above: Signifying the birth of a new...something?
Image Above: Multiple Mary Poppins float down over children in hospital beds
The original story of Mary Poppins was published back in 1934. The author, Pamela L. Travers, had studied both occult practices and belief systems prior to writing the book. The Mary Poppins character and the overall imagery, as portrayed by Travers, is quite a bit different than what we typically see in modern versions of the story today. The context in which we see Mary Poppins appear here makes one wonder which version of the story we are looking at?
The original book makes references to many esoteric themes. For example, there is one scene in the book that involves a starling and the newborn Annabelle. In this scene, the bird asks Annabelle where she came from…Annabelle replies:
"I am earth and air and fire and water...I come from the Dark where all things have their beginnings. I come from the sea and its tides, I come from the sky and its stars...I remembered all I had been and I thought of all I shall be."
The passage above actually alludes to a number of different esoteric concepts. However, it is included here mainly for the reference to reincarnation. This is also a theme that we saw unfold in the opening ceremony with the "new birth" image above, the Phoenix symbolism (below) and other imagery.
There is another rather curious scene in the book involving a zoo. In this scene, the animals run the zoo and all the people are in cages (a premonition/vision of modern society?). The king of the animals is a huge hooded snake that Mary Poppins calls "cousin."
The passages above aren't necessarily connected with the opening ceremony. I just found them interesting in relation to some of the imagery that was seen in the show.
Two Images Above: Demons, witches, nurses, children and hospital beds....odd (and rather disturbing) imagery to celebrate the opening of the 2012 Olympic Games
Two Images Above: Lord Voldemort
Lord Voldemort is a fictional character from the Harry Potter series of books. In the series, it is said that "no witch or wizard dares to speak his name". Rather than being named directly, he is instead referred to as "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" or "the Dark Lord".
Voldemort has an obsession with blood purity (as do the real-world Elite class). His ultimate goal is to rid the wizarding world of Muggle (non-magical) heritage and to conquer both worlds (Muggle and Wizarding) in order to achieve pure-blood dominance.
There are a number of instances in the Harry Potter books were individuals are taken over or possessed by Voldemort, including:
In the "Philosoper's Stone", Voldemort reveals himself as one who has possessed Professor Quirrell:
"See what I have become?" the face said. "Mere shadow and vapour...I have form only when I can share another's body...but there have always been those wiling to let me into their hearts and minds..." (Philosopher's Stone, p. 213)
This is an interesting passage when viewed in relation to the imagery that was contained in the opening ceremony (and also that which is commonly seen in modern society and in the mainstream media via TV, movies, video games, books, news, etc). We are, in fact, being incrementally conditioned…little by little…to willingly accept the darkness and let it into our hearts and minds.
In book four, The "Goblet of Fire", Voldemort goes into detail of how he possessed Quirrell and animals:
"I could possess the bodies of others...I sometimes inhabited animals - snakes, of course, being my preference - but I was little better off inside them than as pure spirit, for their bodies were ill-adapted to perform magic...and my possession of them shortened their lives; none of them lasted long... 'Then...four years ago...the means for my return seemed assured. A wizard...young, foolish, and gullible wandered across my path in the forest I had made my home... He was easy to bend to my will....I took possession of his body, to supervise him closely as he carried out my orders." (The Goblet of Fire, p. 567)
Is the above passage referring to something that is confined only to fantasy books, bad horror movies and ancient folklore? It's a question one might ponder while watching the evening news.
The fact that the "Dark Lord" was the single largest prop that appeared in the Opening Ceremony was not a coincidence. It was designed to capture our attention and hold it there. From an occult (ritualistic) point of reference, Lord Voldemort was used as a conduit to capture/channel the energy of over a billion people watching the opening ceremonies and then transfer that energy somewhere else (perhaps to the new child seen in the image above?).
Five Images Above: First image (directly above) is a Freemason/secret society ritual at Bohemian Grove in Northern, California. Members gather around a large bonfire and give praise/worship to a giant satanic owl. The other four images are from the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. See any similarities?
Image Above: Here we have a group of men standing around a molten flaming pit with steam and smoke rising from it, hammering away. It almost looks as if they are trying to break through to something below, rather than build something. Eventually rings of fire are forged out of this molten fiery pit and then they rise above the crowd. It seemed like there were quite a few references to burning pits and rings of fire in the opening ceremonies.
Two Images Above: The Phoenix is a mystical bird which is said to have a life span of 500 years. At its death, it prepares its own funeral pyre, and out of its ashes rises a new Phoenix.The Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection. The Phoenix is one of the most significant symbols of the Freemasons/Illuminati. Its image and its wings can be seen widely in occult symbolism
Image Above: The Phoenix - this stamp of the Freemasons/Illuminati is frequently seen during large public events such as during the last Super Bowl Half-Time Show (ritual)
As humans, we often have a tendency to dismiss that which is uncomfortable to us. It's a built in defense mechanism and it's one that the "powers that be" (PTB) utilize quite heavily to keep their agendas hidden from us. When you really think about it, how else could the PTB hide such grand agendas from the people? They are successful because we have become willing participants in the cover-up by hiding the information from ourselves.
The most difficult place to search for change is from within. However, it is from there that true change always takes root…both on an individual level and on a macro level. I suppose that we could band together and imprison all the current "perpetrators", but what would that really accomplish? What would the next set of "leaders" look like?
The PTB have certainly been busy lately with their hammers and chisels trying to shape humanity into some kind of monstrosity. They would like us to believe that we lack the desire and power to change the face of the sculpture that they are creating for us…that we lack the necessary skills to rewrite that which they have tried to etch in stone.
However, they cannot decide the fate of the entire human race. They can only control those that choose to take the trip with them. We as individuals, have the ultimate power to determine our own path and our own destination in life.
Humanity, in fact, has a secret weapon that the PTB does not want us to know about. It is so powerful, that if everyone decided to use it tomorrow the game would be over. That secret weapon is freewill. It's both greatest gift, and the greatest crutch that has ever been bestowed upon humanity.
Almost every mechanism of the control grid has been specifically designed and set up for one primary purpose…to limit freewill. The ultimate goal is to condition us to reject the idea of freewill and self-empowerment, and embrace the idea that change can only come from an external source. And with each new election, they are more than willing to offer up the newest/greatest "leader" that promises to fix it all for us. What has changed recently? This is a very dangerous (downward sloping) curve that we are riding.
I happen to believe that a certain amount of skepticism is healthy. But it's only healthy if we examine all the facts and details for ourselves and then form an educated and unbiased opinion based on complete information. I understand that this is a difficult and uncomfortable subject to ponder. However, the only way that we can truly disconnect from the system is if we become knowledgeable enough to recognize the danger signs when they are in front of us and then act intelligently and accordingly by choosing to become non-participants in those broken or harmful areas of the system. On the other hand, if we choose to simply write it all off as "conspiracy", then we are in essence acting as our own prison guards and will most likely go on (unknowingly) supporting the very system which seeks to control us.
The true power is in the people, not in the system.
Peace to all
