Nazism and The New Age,
Hitler and the Occult
Follow Hitler; he will dance, but it is I who have called the tune. I have initiated him into the Secret Doctrine, opened his centers in vision, and given him the means to communicate with the powers.
~Trevor Ravenscroft, The Spear Of Destiny
Nazism and The New Age,
In August, 1990, President George Bush announced that the world had now entered into a New World Order. Shockingly President Bush is an adept in an American Brotherhood of the Yale Skull and Bones Society. Bush's New World Order is virtually identical with Hitler's; the key connecting point is the common membership in their respective Brotherhood .
Here is a quick overview of the Thule Society, beginning with a study of its practices and relevant history.
They were Satanists who practiced Black Magic -- this means that they were "solely concerned with raising their consciousness by means of rituals to awareness of evil and nonhuman intelligences in the universe; and with achieving means of communication with these intelligences." (Ravenscroft). Concentrate on that seemingly innocent word, rituals. Christians equate a ritual to a church service, thereby not understanding its occultic meaning. The New Age Dictionary defines ritual as a "ceremony to restore balance with nature...and bring back lost harmony and sacredness." Remember we are dealing with the Satanic world, where good is called evil and evil good. The sacredness mentioned here is a Satanic sacredness. Rituals literally are proscribed activities designed to allow demonic power to flow through the participants. These activities are proscribed chants, formula wordings, and carefully planned actions. The effect is devastatingly powerful, as demonic force pours through the participants, delivering a counterfeit spiritual experience which literally transforms their lives. Never skip over the word ritual, as it is a word of Satanic power.
Ravenscroft records its effect upon Hitler:
Sexual perversion took a central place in [Hitler's] life...a monstrous sexual perversion was the very core of his whole existence, the source of his mediumistic and clairvoyant powers, and the motivation behind every act through which he reaped a sadistic vengeance on humanity. (Ibid)
Eckart's final act was to initiate Hitler into "a monstrous sadistic magic ritual...after which he was sexually impotent. Hitler's impotency had a deep psychological foundation. He knew sexual fulfillment through the extremes of sadism and masochism..." (Ravenscroft,). This impotency delivered a final devastating blow to Hitler's psychological foundation, finally making him into the sadistic murderer that history knows.
The Thule Society regularly held occultic seances, during which time they communicated with demons who were either masquerading as a dead person or who were just appearing as their guiding spirits. Dietrich Eckart, Alfred Rosenberg, and Adolf Hitler invoked the Anti-Christ into manifestation at the mediumistic seances of the Thule Group in
Eckart believed he had been told by his guiding spirit he would have the privilege of training the coming Great One, the Anti-Christ. From the beginning of their association, Eckert believed Hitler was Anti-Christ. Therefore, Eckert spared no occultic knowledge, ritual, or perversion in his attempt to fully equip Hitler for the role. Once the training was completed, Hitler believed he was "born anew with that super-personal strength and resolution he would need to fulfill the mandate ... ordained for him." (Ravenscroft) Hitler literally equated this with the Christian claim to be born again.
Now, let us look at the Skull and Bones rituals and beliefs. Little is firmly known about Skull and Bones, because their secrecy since they were established in 1833 is as complete as any society in the world. However, they possess all the requirements of a true secret society:
The Skull and Bones also incorporates sexual activities into their practices. "The death of the initiate will be as frightful as the use of human skeletons and ritual psychology can make it..." (Esquire Magazine, "The Last Secrets of Skull and Bones", Ron Rosenbaum). Sexual perversion is part of ritual psychology. Ron Rosenbaum, author of the Esquire Magazine article, stated that on initiation night, called tap night, "...if one could climb to the tower of Weir Hall, the odd castle that overlooks the Bones courtyard, one could hear strange cries and moans coming from the bowels of the tomb as the 15 newly tapped members were put through what sounded like a harrowing ordeal..." (Esquire, September, 1976).
Further, [initiates] "lay naked in coffins and tell their deepest and darkest sexual secrets as part of their initiation." (Esquire). These experiences in the coffins incorporated sexual pain and resulted in being born-again, into the Order, as we mentioned above. (Cooper) Powerful force charges through the participants of these ceremonies, transforming their lives dramatically. This type ritual is classic Satanism. Anton LaVey states, in his book The Satanic Rituals: Companion To The Satanic Bible:
The ceremony of rebirth takes place in a large coffin..This is similar to the coffin symbolism that...is found in most lodge rituals." Make no mistake about it: Any organization which utilizes this coffin ritual to simulate rebirth is practising Satanism, including Skull and Bones.
The Skull and Bones believes that on the night of initiation, the initiate "dies to the world and be born again into the Order..." (Esquire Magazine, September, 1977). Remember Hitler's belief that he had been born anew after his ritualistic initiation and training? This term is a common one in occultism. During the 1988 Presidential Campaign, a TV reporter asked Vice-President Bush if he were a Christian. Bush initially stammered, but then said, "if you mean born again, then, yes, I am a Christian".
As born-again Christians carry out the ritual of water baptism by immersion to demonstrate that they have died to the old way of life and have been reborn into a new life, the occultists have their ritual to demonstrate the same life transformation. Rosenbaum continues his expose' of the born-again experience, "then it's into the coffin and off on a symbolic journey through the underworld to rebirth, which takes place in room number 322. There, the Order clothes the newborn knight in its own special garments, implying that, henceforth, he will tailor himself to the Order's mission." (Ibid). This ritual description is as occultic as any I have read, and truly reveals the Skull and Bones as occultic.
One of the most sobering facets of this counterfeit born again initiation ritual is that the initiate swears to an allegiance to the Secret Order that transcends any allegiance later in life. Christian author Bill Cooper captures this disturbing fact most succinctly:
Members of the Order (Skull and Bones) take an oath that absolves them from any allegiance to any nation or king or government or constitution, and that includes the negating of any subsequent oath which they may be required to take. They swear allegiance only to the Order and its goal of a
Since the oath as President occurred after the Oath to Skull and Bones, it is not worth the paper on which it is printed. That kind of hold is powerful. Indeed, as Ron Rosenbaum began the research necessary to write his article for Esquire, he was warned about the power of Skull and Bones:
The power of Bones is incredible. They have their hands on every lever of power in the country.
The only thing which is important to the Skull and Bones is their goal of a New World Order. In conjunction with this understanding, remember one other Secret Society belief, i.e., the ends justify the means.
As Rosenbaum continued his research, he found definite links between Bones and the Bavarian Illuminists. The Bavarian Illuminists were part of the original Masters of the Illuminati. First, Rosenbaum discovered documents which detailed the origins of Bones back to
Secondly, Rosenbaum discovered that, "above the arched walls above the vault of the (Bones) sacred room, #322", is a painting of skulls surrounded by Masonic symbols. Above this painting is the slogan, in German, which means, "Who is the fool, who the wise man, beggar, or king? Whether poor or rich, all's the same in death." This means that only the works which one does in this life is what matters; in death, all men share the same fate. This statement is very consistent with the teachings of Secret Societies, showing their Works-oriented philosophy.
Thirdly, Rosenbaum discovered a "haunting photograph of the altar room at one of the Masonic lodges at
Without doubt, we have established Skull and Bones to be a Brotherhood of Death Society, which is itself tied into the Masters of the Illuminati. It is no wonder that Bush has been proclaiming the New World Order
We have studied the common philosophical and religious links between the German Thule Society and Skull and Bones. We now need to study the historical results of the attempt of the Thule Society to establish a New World Order. After the Thule Society selected Adolf Hitler to be their leader of the New World Order, they faced the problem of practical implementation of this goal. They realized that their plans for world domination required control of military power of
The Guiding Spirits of the Thule Society became the Guiding Spirits of the Nazi Party. In only 10 tumultuous years, Hitler gained high political office, from which he catapulted himself into the position of absolute dictator in 1933. In 1938, Hitler began the Final Solution of the Jewish problem by initiating the Holocaust. In 1939, Hitler initiated World War II, which lasted until Mid-1945. As I read the results, remember James' words, "Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death." By 1945, the occultic sin conceived by the Thule Society had come to full completion. These are the results: (Source is The Webster Family Encyclopedia, Volume 19, 1984)
Enormous armies were mobilized around the world:
Total World-Wide Mobilization: 59,500,000 men.
The death toll was almost incomprehensible:
Japan 2,000,000 soldiers - 500,000 civilians
Total human lives killed was:
18,200,000 soldiers and 16,300,000 civilians for 34,000,000 total deaths. When you add 18,000,000 deaths from Hitler's Death Camps, you realize that over 54 million people lost their lives as the final result of the occultic practices and goals of the New World Order of that German Brotherhood of Death Society, the Thule Society. The 6,000,000 Jewish deaths from Hitler's Final Solution represented two-thirds of the total world-wide Jewish population.
Hitler came close to winning WWII, but God's timing was not yet come. However, some of the after-effects of WWII served to set the stage for the current drive toward the New World Order.|
Alice Bailey states in her book, The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, that the world must be united regionally before it can be united into one. Stalin repeated this concept shortly before his death in 1953. World War II certainly provided the impetus for this type reorganization. The World was reorganized militarily into NATO in
The infant One-World Government was created as the United Nations, in 1948. A similar effort was orchestrated after WWI as the
Tremendous technological progress was achieved under the impetus of war. The atomic bomb was created, as were the jet engine, the rocket, and modern telecommunications. New Age author, Allen Neuharth, in his book, Nearly One World, states that these inventions have brought the world to the threshold of a One-World Government, Economy, and Religion, i.e., the New World Order.
This brief review of the after-effects of WWII clearly shows much was achieved that set the stage for the current New World Order. Let us now review some of the goals which Secret Societies today have for the New World Order. Keep in mind that the Skull and Bones is the driving force and is the "first among equals" among all other Secret Societies and all other open organizations which are committed to this new order.
Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler, an extreme nationalist, made it his mission to prove that the Germanic peoples were the descendants of the Atlantic master race.
Nationalists, particularly those who believed in the superiority of the Aryan race, always had entertained a notion of a vanished island, hidden world, some kind of utopia. Himmler may have thought it was in
Himmler believed the occult legend of Atlantis was true; that the mythical super-beings of Atlantis eventually made their way from Tibet to northern Europe and that their descendants became the Nordic, or Aryan races.
Government funded expeditions under Himmler's direction were sent to
Although he was a very rational, calculating power broker, he was also a romantic idealist and he certainly believed in these myths, otherwise he wouldn't have spent the money and the time and the energy he did sending expeditions to
The quest to prove the superiority of the Aryan race soon moved into the criminal. The Nazis would begin killing people and using their bodies for experiments. They believed that once they had proven that their ancestors were gods it would be a simple step to recreate this race of Aryan god-men through selective breeding; that you could somehow force human evolution in a sort of hot-house environment by selecting the parents of a child and then rebreeding their offspring until the day when eventually you managed to breed the superman who was predicted by all their occult theories."
The breeding stock was Himmler's SS. He recruited only the strongest, best conditioned and what he considered the best looking young men: tall, blond and blue-eyed. These future warriors had to be well educated and only from families of pure Aryan heritage.
The SS had been generally rather tall, well-made men/warriors. Himmler did decree this for the SS in so much that they should all be at leat 5'9" tall, [Himmler was 5'9"]. In addition to their size, they had to be of pure blood. For the officers, they had to prove pure German ancestry without interbreeding back to 1750.
Himmler's SS, at one point three million strong, were encouraged to father as many children as possible regardless of their marital status. The SS, he told them, had a sacred duty to their nation and to their Fuhrer to beget healthy Aryan babies.
One of Himmler's ideas concerned polygamy. The only way in which he could breed the master race ever faster was by instituting the practice whereby SS men would be able to take more than one wife.
In 1935, Himmler created the SS Lebensraum, "Fountain of Life," Program. Lebensraum was designed to facilitate the birth, housing and raising of as many pure Aryan babies as possible. Himmler's program was documented by actual images of Lebensraum babies.
The SS Lebensraum was providing conditions whereby young girls could in fact be served by SS studs. He suggested that young Aryan girls in
According to Lebensraum doctrine an illegitimate child was no disgrace as long as the mother was genetically fit. Women were thought to have only one function, to breed the children whose offspring the Nazi party believed would become gods. An estimated 11,000 Lebensraum babies were bred between 1935 and 1945. Most of these children never knew their parents.
The SS weekly newspaper declared:
Long before Hitler came to power, these beliefs were flourishing against an already racist backdrop. There were many organizations in
The once mighty empire of
Millions were unemployed; inflation was rampant; recession, starvation and poverty were everywhere.
People looked for a scapegoat. Fear and distrust of foreigners intensified. Both ends of the political spectrum made a bid for the loyalty of the German people.
After serving with distinction in the First World War, Hitler was stationed in
Hess was convinced the dynamic orator he heard was the long-awaited messiah prophesied in German occult circles. With racist philosopher, Alfred Rosenberg, Hess was a supporter of one of the more prominent groups, the "Thule Society," which actively sought a Germanic messiah and was dedicated to the revival of the so-called "Aryan master race." Members practiced astrology, sun worship and other occult sciences thinking that this would help them reach their goal. Their emblem was a dagger set against a curved swastika. With a membership that included some of
Like many Germans and Austrians of the time, Hitler lived in an environment that was already hostile to Judaism. He would have easily found these ideas in popular publications such as Ostara, an overtly racist occult magazine written by a renegade and ultimately defrocked monk and mystic named Lance von Liebenfels. Ostara magazine was a good example of how Hitler would have picked up his racism and his antisemitism. He even paid a visit to Lance's editorial office to obtain back numbers.
Immensely popular at the time, the journal preached that the Nordic or Aryan races had much to fear from people darker than themselves and targeted Jews as the most threatening. The Ostara claimed that the Jews were preventing the Aryans from taking their rightful place as rulers of the world, an eternal struggle dating back to Biblical times. Headlines read, "Are you blond? Then you are in danger. You should therefore read Ostara. Publications for blonds and the male rights movement." The publication outlined what would become the Nazi world view, racial selection, Lebensraum, and even the Nazi death camps. With these ideas in place, Hitler's developing theories of race were ready to be further influenced--this time by Thule Society supporter Alfred Rosenberg, the racist philosopher and occultist who would eventually become the Führer's voice in spiritual matters. In his book "The Myth of the Twentieth Century,"
He saw blood, particularly in a religious sense, as the determining factor. In other words, a church had to be a church of the blood, rather than a church of faith or a church of belief. The blood tied together the Nordic races. So for
Nordic myth replaced the Christian Bible as the foundation of the new Nazi religion. In a pageant orchestrated by
As a symbol for the new religion, Hitler chose the swastika. The swastika can be found all over the world in many different cultures throughout history. From earliest times, it was the symbol of good luck in
Among the Norseman the swastika was a reminder of the Arctic sun worshiped throughout pagan lore as a bearer of life and good fortune. For Hitler, the swastika held a different meaning. He wrote:
Hitler's bid for power began on November 9, 1923 with an attempted overthrow of the Bavarian government. Leading a private army called Storm Troopers, he launched a surprise attack on a beer hall where government leaders were meeting. With Hess and Rosenberg at his side, Hitler brashly announced the formation of a new government, then took to the streets, marching 3,000 Storm Troopers through
Children with health problems were registered at birth. If their problems persisted, Nazi doctors would secretly administer lethal injections, telling their parents they died of natural causes. The euthanasia program was instituted for the mentally and physically impaired. Propaganda films claimed these were acts of kindness, freeing trapped souls from tormented bodies.
By 1935, Hitler had created the blood laws which made it a criminal act for a pure German to marry or even have sex with a Jew. And German Jews were stripped of their rights as citizens. But the worst was still to come. Purifying the Aryan bloodline was only half of Hitler's demonic plan. To finally clear the way for the last stage of human evolution and assure the coming of the Aryan millennium, the Nazis felt that one obstacle remained. The very existence of non-Aryans.
The idea that the few should be sacrificed for the good of the many extended even to Hitler's SA, the Storm Troopers. Eventually the SA, who were among Hitler's first supporters, became an obstacle, one that he had no qualms about removing.
The middle-class and the army came to fear the SA. To the army the SS was a more acceptable organization, like themselves, but members of the SS were from the German upper-class. The SS consisted very often of professional people, doctors, solicitors and so-on. They joined the SS while ordinary working people were in the SA and they didn't like each other.
The military offered the Führer a deal: their full support if Hitler would eliminate the SA. Hitler accepted and with Himmler rid the Party of the Storm Troopers in one night. the 'Night of the Long Knives' that happened on the 30th of June in 1934.
The SA leadership was rounded up and executed so quickly, so ruthlessly, many never knew why. It is reported some were still shouting "Heil, Hitler" when they died. After the purge of the SA, Himmler transformed the SS into an elite military order. In time, they would come to run the concentration camps where Jews and all other enemies of the state were being executed.
But Himmler's vision of the SS was not yet complete. He planned to turn the SS into
Himmler was born a Catholic, but by the time he met Hitler, he was already a confirmed occultist.
Himmler brought a range of unlikely influences to his design for the SS including the Hindu religion. During the war he reportedly traveled with a copy of the Bhagavad Gita, a holy book from the Hindu religion. It tells the story of a great battle on the "Field of Righteousness" between the forces of good and evil. The Hindu belief in reincarnation and its rigid caste system appealed to Himmler. It was a perfect model for a Nazi warrior elite which would rule the world.
Historians now say that Himmler was convinced that he was the reincarnation of King Heinrich, a German leader from the middle ages who stopped the Slavs from invading
The Reichsführer SS attempted to reinstate the feudal system that the Knights had lived by. As new lands were conquered, each SS officer was to take possession of a feudal estate. Local people were either killed or turned into slave labor.
Like the Teutonic Knights, Himmler transformed a series of ancient castles into SS training schools that were both military and religious centers, here, recruits were initiated. At the Wewelsburg Himmler tried to create a replica of the Grail Chapel from the Arthurian legend. A mystical chalice, the grail was said to have contained sacred blood. To Himmler, the sacred blood of the grail legend was pure Aryan blood. He believed it possessed a magical quality. His closest advisor on grail law was archeologist Otto Rahn. Also obsessed with the grail legend, Rahn believed it was hidden in the caves of southern
In his continued quest to prove the superiority of the Aryan race, Himmler created a research institute called the "Ancestral Heritage Organization." In addition to conducting medical experiments on human beings and checking bloodlines to ensure racial purity, the organization's mission was to resurrect and reinterpret occult practices, ancient Germanic myths and pagan lore. This Nazi film shows one such ritual--young girls dancing around a Nordic pagan symbol of war and divine order.
To control all occult knowledge, Himmler confiscated the libraries and artifacts of any occult society that was not associated with him. This included secret societies such as the Freemasons, who the Nazis believed were an occult organization created by the Jews to conspire against the Germanic people.
While Himmler suppressed certain occultists, he also advanced the careers of others, such as Karl Willigut. In Willigut, Himmler believed he had found the key to popularizing the ancient pagan tradition in modern
Willigut believed he was a direct descendant of the Norse god, Thor. Copies of his papers, found in Himmler's personal file, reveal that Willigut believed he possessed extrasensory powers. One document entitled the "Nine Commandments of God" was signed by Willigut and initialed by Himmler. Written in both modern German and the runic alphabet, it suggests that Willigut thought he was using his powers to rediscover the ancient rites and rituals of
According to Nordic legend, the runic alphabet used by Willigut was given to mankind by Odin, the supreme god in Norse mythology. This sacred alphabet was his gift to mankind. These symbols appeared throughout the Nordic world on such objects as Viking ships, battle spears and shields. The alphabet of ancient priests and magicians, runes were believed to be mystical tools for fortune telling, casting spells and invoking magical spirits.
These mysterious figures were worn on the shoulders and helmets of all SS uniforms. The Hitler Youth used a single SIG rune. These ancient mystical symbols were seemingly everywhere. Serving as a constant reminder to Germans of their pagan past.
After the SS recruit had passed his training and taken the oath, if he was an officer he was then given the SS dagger which was a sort of hunting knife with a black handle, the SS runes on it, the swastika and a wreath and a German eagle. This was a very prized possession. Engraved into the dagger were the words "my honour is called trust." SS men received the dagger in a solemn ceremony. Every member of the SS wore the SS signet ring, but for his inner circle the elite of the elite, Himmler personally handed out the death's head ring.
In a speech given to SS officers stationed at
The marriage ceremony also became an SS ritual. Mimicking ancient Germanic tribes, SS officers took on the role of the clan leader who presided over marriages. Himmler himself officiated at one such ceremony. This rare footage shows one of his SS officers marrying Gretl, the sister of Hitler's mistress, Eva Braun. Rings were exchanged, as well as bread and salt, the ancient pagan symbols for fertility and purity of the soil.
The Nazi year was marked with celebrations taken from the ancient Germanic calendar. The May-Pole Festival, initially accepted as a celebration of fertility, was transformed into a show of nationalism and military strength. Hitler said:
Nazis even began to restore ancient pagan temples like Externstein which was dedicated to a solar deity. At Externstein , during the summer solstice, a shaft of light shines through a window and lines up with a point on the altar. While Externstein was considered a holy place for Germanic tribes, it is far from unique among ancient temples in tracking the sun's movements. Himmler was convinced, however, that it was proof of the superior intellect of prehistoric Germanic priests.
In Nazi Germany, the festival at the summer solstice would be turned into a fascist rite. Traditionally, summer solstice festivals were a celebration of life and of the sun's powers. Dramatically staged and carefully choreographed, speeches were given preaching self-sacrifice and heroism. In this particular ritual, Propaganda Minister Göbbels gave the speech. In ancient times, the bonfire represented the ritual relighting of the sun. In Nazi Germany, they were tributes to the Fuhrer. In the largest of these rituals, torch-bearing troops created symbolic patterns in the night.
At the end of the year, the long night of the winter solstice honored
The full calendar of rituals culminated with the rally at Nuremburg where the vows between party and people were renewed year after year. Tens of thousands of uniformed Nazis joined forces. The week long rally was orchestrated to sweep people up in a spectacle of sheer power.
As the Nazi frenzy swept
The Nazi mass rallies were carefully orchestrated to build to an overwhelming emotional epiphany that evoked a religious fervor. At the center of this ritual was Hitler. Everything was constructed to make Hitler look like divinity, a messiah.
Having won the unquestioning support of the German people, Hitler was now ready to dominate the world. From the onset of the war in 1939, country after country fell to the Nazis. By the winter of 1942, however, the tide turned and the Nazis began to experience what they thought was impossible--defeat. As the Nazi war effort grew more and more desperate, they expanded their use of the occult sciences. From research and ritual to a basis for making military decisions. Certain members of the German naval command became convinced that the allies were already employing mystical forces to wage war against
This led Himmler to establish a top secret institute dedicated to the ancient occult practice of pendulum dousing. Over maps of the
Still, the most common occult arts employed by the Nazis were astrology and prophecy although they were approached in two distinctly different ways. Rudolf Hess and Heinrich Himmler genuinely believed in the occult and used it for making political decisions. But Josef Göbbels, head of the Propaganda Ministry, wanted to use the occult purely for propaganda purposes, to manipulate people and undermine allied morale. Göbbels soon became aware of a great source of mystical knowledge, the predictions of Nostradamus one of the most celebrated visionaries of all time. Nostradamus completed his masterpiece of prophesy in 1555. The book contains subtle references to a crisis in
To interpret the French prophet, Göbbels recruited renowned astrologer and Nostradamus expert, Karl Ernst Kraft. A particular quatrain that Göbbels seized on, seemed to refer directly to Hitler and quickly became part of the Nazi leader's mystic.
In Göbbels' diary, he expressed his excitement when a member of his staff began to formulate a plan to use the prophesy.
The creation of fake prophecies and fraudulent mysticism to influence the enemy became known as "black propaganda."
British intelligence discovered the deception and recognizing its propaganda potential, began to wage their own Nostradamus campaign. Just as the Nazis had flooded
Astrology and espionage would soon collide again in what is still considered by many to be the most bizarre incident of the Second World War When Rudolf Hess, the Deputy Führer and one of Hitler's closest friends and advisors, made an astonishing solo flight to
Astrologer and close friend, Ernst Schulte-Strathaus, cast a horoscope for the Deputy Führer that revealed an auspicious arrangement of the planets.
On May 10, 1941 there was a particularly powerful astronomical line-up. Basically there were six planets in Taurus and a full moon exactly on the opposite side of the zodiac in Scorpio. According to astrological tradition, when you get such a line-up you'll get a major shift in global affairs and, therefore, it was fair to assume that May 10, 1941 could provide the turning point in the war.
Karl Kraft, the man who provided Göbbels with the powerful reinterpretations of Nostradamus as well as strikingly accurate astrological predictions, would suffer the ultimate punishment , he went to
The astrologers who were arrested under the "Action Hess" were treated in different ways depending on their use to the Reich. Those already working for Himmler were released immediately and allowed to continue their work. During this time, Himmler came into contact with one of
In 1943, Wulff predicted that Hitler would survive a great danger on the 20th of July, 1944, that he would fall ill in November of 1944 and die a mysterious death before the 7th of May 1945. On the basis of these predictions, Wulff became Himmler's personal astrologer and one of his most trusted aides. All of these predictions came to pass.
According to Schellenberg's interrogation, during the final weeks of the war Himmler became obsessed with the astrology of a coup when the stars suggested that he might successfully overthrow the Führer.
Reading Hitler's chart, Wulff saw planetary arrangements that indicated a downfall. Wulff and Schellenberg continued to urge Himmler to overthrow Hitler and install himself as the leader of the waning Reich.
Despite Hitler's order to continue the exterminations to the end, Wulff was instrumental in convincing Himmler to temporarily stop the killing. Having taken this action, it appeared that Himmler was ready to launch his coup. But ultimately, his fear and loyalty to the Fuhrer prevented him from seizing power. Himmler remained hopeful that some mystical force of destiny would alter the defeat that was clearly at hand.
Himmler was also very interested in historical parallels between the situation in the mid 40s and previous historical periods. Himmler looked back to a previous great German war with
Two weeks later, Göbbels and his entire family descended with Adolf Hitler into the Führer's private bunker. On April 30th, Adolf Hitler and his bride Eva Braun committed suicide. Göbbels poisoned his six children, then shot his wife and himself. Dressed as a common German soldier, Heinrich Himmler almost managed to escape. He was arrested by the British but during a physical examination crushed a cyanide capsule he kept in his mouth. At on the 23rd of May, the Reichsführer who had summoned occult forces in the service of Aryan glory was dead.
In November, 1945 several top Nazis were brought to trial by the allies at Nuremburg. Rudolf Hess was sentenced to life in prison. He died there at the age of 93. Occultist Alfred Rosenberg was found guilty of crimes against humanity and hanged in October, 1946.
The Third Reich which was to have lasted over a thousand years ended after only twelve. Nearly 50 million had died. Ironically among them were the first generation of Hitler's so-called "master race" who were to father further generations of Aryan supermen.
Throughout history, mythology has had a powerful influence on the human mind. All cultures have been mythically driven. However, in Nazi Germany, the linking of political aims to a corrupted mythology led to an evil unparalleled in history.
In the introduction to his book, "The Occult and the Third Reich," Dr. Lewis Sumberg states:
Most people don't know that Hitler was a full-fledged occultist. I was reminded of this while watching a showing of "Hitler: The Occult Messiah" on PBS last week. It's amazing to me how the history books have overlooked this fact -- that the whole raison' d'Ítre of the Holocaust -- the very heart and soul of Nazism -- was rooted in Hitler's belief in occultism.
While still a child, Hitler was initiated into the mysteries of the occult. He attended a Benedictine monastery near his home. The abbot in charge was fascinated by the lore of the Albignesians or Cathars, who can be described as early New Agers in that they believed man could gain the powers of a god.
The occult interests Hitler gained in his youth stayed with him all of his adult life.
While Hitler was in Vienna pursuing a career as an artist, he spent practically all of his spare time in occult bookstores, reading up on white and black magic as well as transcendent states of mind expansion. He befriended an astrologer (though he would later decry astrology). He devoted every spare cent to the pursuit of this higher consciousness. He studied Yoga, astrology and the many and sundry forms of Eastern and Western mysticism. From his youth, Hitler was also fascinated by Norse mythology and the Grail legend.
Hitler was impatient. His goal was to attain "higher consciousness." At some point, the young Hitler decided to speed the process up by supplementing his daily meditation with drugs. He used mescaline to bring about these so-called higher states of consciousness. He continued to devour occultic books by the dozen.
However, there is one book in particular that, when discovered by the young Hitler, literally changed his life (and the course of history) forever. That book, actually part of a series of books, is entitled "The Secret Doctrine," written ("channeled" according to the author) by a woman named Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, the founder of the Theosophical Society. The teachings outlined in Blavatsky's writings provided the focal point for Hitler's belief system. These same teachings provide the basis for the entire New Age Movement.
An associate of Hitler's interviewed by PBS recalled that Hitler checked "The Secret Doctrine" out of the bookstore literally dozens of times (bookstores operated like libraries at the time, and Hitler was apparently too poor to purchase a copy). The acquaintance described Hitler as being "obsessed" by Blavatsky's writings and said that after reading this book that Hitler "changed" in some way that was impossible to describe. "It was as if some new force, a new being had entered his body," the friend recalled.
Blavatsky's teachings are founded upon the notion that mankind originated in Atlantis, and that the Aryans were the master race of the seven Atlantean races. Purportedly, specially selected "enlightened" beings were chosen throughout history to pass on "The Mystery Teachings" to certain initiates. Those who followed these teachings would gradually evolve to higher and higher levels of consciousness until they attained perfection. Of course, not all were destined for this much vaunted state. Those not included were Jews and (later) Christians. To see that the psychic superiority was not lost from the Aryan race, the process of "initiation" was developed by the Masters.
Blavatsky further held the Germanic peoples were actually Asian migrants, having "migrated millennia ago from Asia and spread throughout Africa and Europe."
Once Hitler had come into power, he openly expounded on his occultic beliefs to the masses. By this time, Hitler had become an adept in two occultic groups, The Thule Geselschaft and The Vril Society. Secret meetings were held in an underground bunker in Hitler's castle. Later, he would instigate a governmental occultic branch known as the SS Occult Bureau.
This operation under was under the direction of Heinrich Himmler, Hitler's right hand man. Himmler himself was forced to undergo initiation in the occultic mysteries, as were all members of the SS. Shrouded in Aryan grail esoterics, the initiate's goal was to gain psychic abilities and superhuman strength.
Initiation became the sine qua non for leadership in the SS occultic group. Purportedly, only adepts (not initiates) could communicate with the so-called supermen or "higher powers" who were needed to give direction to the New Race.
The doctrine of Aryanism was (and is) an integral part of both the NAM and Nazism (as well as other forms of anti-semitism and racism). After the resurrection of Christ, St. Paul specifically said that all distinctions, even between Jew and Gentile, were abolished. If your doctrine is that all men are created in the image of God, it is hard to maintain racism and anti-semitism. Where the doctrine says that man has evolved from differing root races and is at various stages of evolutionary development, it becomes easy to justify all forms of discrimination. It even becomes easy to eradicate an entire people.
"The Final Solution" became the next logical step for Hitler. Only pure, white Aryans were capable of achieving "full initiation," into the Mystery Teachings. Anybody else had a "blood taint." Thus, Hitler included Christians on his extermination list after he began systematically murdering the Jews. The idea of a "blood taint" (though often hidden) is also at the core of New Age beliefs.
A few quotes from Alice Bailey (a disciple of Madame Blavatsky and one of the higher-ups in the Theosophical Society).
Today the law of karma is working and the Jews are paying the price ... for all they have done in the past. The Jews have never faced the problem of why the many nations, from the time of the Egyptians, have neither liked nor wanted them. Yet there must be some reasons inherent in the people themselves. The evil karma of the Jew today is intended to bring him to the point of relinquishing all material goals, or renouncing a nationality that has a tendency to be somewhat parasitic...
Later, Bailey indicated that the "Jewish Problem" might be "astrological" in origin.
The behavior of the Jew is the guided by the 'personality ray'... the material form of the third ray. This egoic ray is first for the Jew. Their astrological sign is Capricorn with Virgo rising. Mercury and Virgo play a prominent part in their destiny. Because of this third ray influence, you have the tendency of the Jew to manipulate forces and energies ... to pull strings in order to bring about desired ends.
Alice Bailey stated that she penned these words under the direction of her "Tibetan Master" in 1949, when the world was already aware of what was happening to the Jews in Europe.
Bailey's husband, Foster Bailey, also a high ranking Theosophist, during one of his speeches, let it be clear that Hitler was "one of them."
"Another hierarchic project," said Bailey, "is the uniting of the nations of Europe in one cooperating peaceful community. One attempt was about to begin by uniting the peoples living in the Rhine River valley. It was an attempt by a disciple of ours, but it did not work. Now another attempt is in full swing, namely the six nation Common Market."
Like the Nazis, New Agers also believe in the existence of "Masters" (sometimes called guardian angels") who are organized in a hierarchy which will ultimately be overseen by the "New Messiah." The Nazis believed in the existence of a hierarchy of Masters who would be overseen b a "New Age Christ." This New Age Christ was obviously Hitler, who often referred to himself in those exact terms.
John White, in the introduction to the 1979 International Cooperation Council Directly (now known as the Unity In Diversity Council) stated:
If this sounds similar to Nazi doctrine, it should. Hitler said almost the same thing:
Creation is not yet completed. Man must pass through many further stages of metamorphoses. Post-Atlantaen man is already in a state of degeneration and decline, barely able to survive. All creative forces will be concentrated in the new species. Two types of man, the old and the new, will evolve rapidly. One will disappear from the face of the earth. The other will flourish.
Hitler was a master, as are occultists today, at making what he was doing seem harmless. Extermination of Jews and gypsies was not called "killing." It was called "a cleansing action." Death camps were disguised to look like health camps. Mass extermination of whole areas of people was labeled "resettlement."
From a book written by two French Scholars, who wrote under the single name Jean Michael Angebert, called "The Occult And The Third Reich":
The pre-war climate that gave rise to Nazism is uncomfortably similar to that which exists in the world today. It was an atmosphere beset with disappointment over political events. Germany had experienced the trauma of a wartime defeat and post war inflation with it's accompanying hardships. The youth of Germany tried to escape the harsh tenor of the times by turning to Eastern mysticism, studied in concert with German and Nordic mythology -- mythologies of a never-never land where ancient adepts were always invincible and defeat existed only as a "state of mind."
Today, the United States is in a similar position to the pre-World War II Germans. Our national pride -- in light of the Clinton scandal -- is wounded. The truth is, it's been leaking steadily ever since Vietnam. The country is in the throes of a horrid economy which all the experts say is only going to get worse. Since the sixties, there has been a massive turning towards Eastern mysticism, with the route to transcendental consciousness accelerated by the widespread use of drugs. The exact same scenario could be used to describe post-World War One Germany.
Both Nazism and the NAM are programs for expediting the "path" to transcendental consciousness. Occult teachings and pagan practices were injected into the mainstream of a nation during Hitler's reign. Look around today. What do you see? Go into the New Age section of any bookstore and look at the titles on the shelf. It's all there, the same old stuff, dressed up in new clothing. The waxy faced, hollow-eyed authors of the books -- assorted MDs, PhDs, healers, mystics, gurus and astrologers -- smile out at you from the covers. Each author tells you that they have "the answer." You buy a book (doesn't matter which one). Take it home. It doesn't talk about killing Jews or taking over the world. It talks about "feeling good," about "taking charge of your life." It seems benign (if a bit boring). You figure what the heck ... I'll give this stuff a try.
Don't be fooled. You open those doors, and you're opening the floodgates to hell.
The Theosophical Society is not some piece of ancient history. Open your local paper. You'll likely find an ad for "classes" in Theosophy. Its headquarters and main library are located, as they have been for years, in Ojai California.
Still doubt that there is a massive revival in the occult movement? Flip on your computer, go onto Yahoo and type in the words: occult, satanism, vampire (or any one of dozens of other words related to these subjects) and start following the links. You won't believe what you'll find.
Despite the fact that New Agers would like to separate their activities from the more overt satanically oriented groups, this division is arbitrary. The basic tenets of both New Agers, Satanists (the non reality of evil, the constant striving for higher levels of consciousness) are identical. One might say that Satanism is simply the logical conclusion of New Age occultism.
Hitler failed in his mission to become the "New Christ." However, the Bible clearly tells us that the Anti-Christ is coming. If you take a look at the events in the world today, it would appear that the stage is just about set. Would you have pictured this world -- the world we live in today, with it's instant communication, with bloodthirsty gangs and evil run rampant in the streets, with pornography on your TV screen in prime time, with gay pride (pride in what?) parades drawing millions of enthusiastic onlookers, with blitzed out, freaked out, drugged out, hypnotized kids jumping headfirst off the stage and beating the crap out of each other at rock 'n' roll concerts -- with evil men running the country? Would you have pictured this existing ten years ago?
No, you wouldn't have dreamed this could exist, would you? But here it is! Now imagine the future. Nothing's crazy anymore. Nothing is shocking. It's all out there ... right now. There are no more taboos (except telling the truth).
Now think about this world we live in, in light of what the Bible says in Revelation.
Am I saying the Apocalypse is around the corner? That the new Hitler (the Anti-Christ) is about to be revealed? I'm not in the prediction business. I don't believe in prophecy, but I do believe that 99 percent of the people who call themselves prophets are wolves in sheep's clothing. You'd have to be a fool not to see that something on the horizon..
One thing is for certain. Today we're all engaged in warfare, like it or not. I'm talking about spiritual warfare. The time is coming, and quickly, when you'll have to choose sides. It will be the most important choice of your life, for it involves literally everything you do, every move you make.
These words are not meant as scare tactics. Nevertheless, if they make you uncomfortable, that's as it should be. Each of us must make use of every bit of information available to us. We must be willing to look at painful truths about ourselves and not the guy next door! More importantly, we must hone our ability to discern truth from falsehood. The enemy is a liar. His minions are liars. Therefore, we must seek the answer within the solitude of our own hearts. Sorry, but you can't sit on the fence any longer. Like the Dylan song says, "You gotta serve somebody." And you do -- and you are -- whether you know it or not.
From UFOs to Yoga
By Martin A. Lee
These annual conclaves are akin to religious ceremonies where true believers worship Hitler as an infallible deity whose every utterance is gospel.
The Jews, whom Devi blamed for all the world's suffering and alienation, were predictably pegged as the main obstacle on the path to the Golden Age.
Links between Nazism and esoteric and occult movements are nothing new. Hitler, rejecting Christianity, embraced instead the paganism of the early Germanic tribes. Their beliefs, both real and imagined, offered a basis on which any number of sinister concepts could be superimposed. The process reached its apogee at Schloss Wewelsburg, near the town of Paderborn. Though the present-day castle dates from the late 16th century, records suggest that there has been a fortress on the site since the days of the Huns, more than a thousand years earlier. The surrounding landscape is wooded, often misty, and interspersed with giant, weirdly-shaped rocks. The castle and its environs were ideally suited to the purpose for which Heinrich Himmler rented them in 1934 - that of providing the officers of his elite corps, the SS, with an education in the supposed pagan mysteries underpinning National Socialism.
Though it does not make much of an impact at election time, the far right remains a disturbing undercurrent in German life: sufficiently disturbing for the federal government to have launched an all-out drive against the neo-Nazi fringe two years ago (including the attempt to ban the NPD). "The problem with the far right in Germany is not that its members are particularly numerous, but that they are readier than their counterparts elsewhere in Europe to resort to violence," said a senior intelligence officer who asked not to be named. That point was driven home by a string of savage attacks in early 2000, culminating in the beating to death of a Mozambique-born German citizen in Dessau.
