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

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 darknesshave 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 experiencesout-of-body experiencesancient 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.

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.”
~ Manly P Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

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 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.

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.

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.

t-trinitySpiritually 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

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.

    I have 33 upright pentagrams tatooed on my body for a reason.I will not let them appropriate and pervert my voice , my symbols, my language, – by sociopathic ( infected consciousness) individuals or systems, which is rife in cult-ure already. This is their M.O. I understand these are operating within the laws of earth magic/metaphysics. Art is ‘magic’ if its considered manipulating symbols colour and shapes to effect a change in consciousness. But so is the NLP language of Obama. I consider the occult to be like a hammer- you can build houses or smash heads in. We are blessed by ‘God’ to be creators through imagination and action within free will within the Earth realm. In what spirit do you wield the tools?

    The above article is Straight misinformation, There is no force… that’s satans trap of duality, black and white magic are the same thing, invoking and working with demons and msking pacts with them which will cost you your soul.

    No Symbols have been hijacked and stolen, they are all occult and the cross and the anhk are not same thing but it’s all pagan, satan is behind it all.
    Since Jesus died on the cross, it is a reminder of satans defeat to him and his followers, yet it is a symbol of death as it was used to kill people as we know.

    God is Spirit! There is no Life or True Light without him, All pagans are either/and egotistic, prideful and intellectual, None are Spiritual as they are not connected with God, they have eaten the forbidden fruit and are Lost Souls.

    All past empires were pagan and that’s why they fell, only that which is built on God Stands and Nothing predates God, Obviously.

    Christ is the only way, Truth amd Life! The True Light, everything else is kies and death – Darkness, openly or disguised.
    Eternity is a long time and none knows when there time is up, we have to get right with God, Through Christ before we die so it’s vitally important that we get right with God ASAP, bob marley accepted Christ on his death bed.
    Remember that God Forgives as soon as one sincerely repents, his arms are open waiting to embrace you, he doesn’t want any to enter eternal destruction, Spiritual rebirth is the only pre requesite to entering the pearly gates, it’s starts with Accepting Christ and his sacrifice then The Spirit will be poured out on you, setting you free from sins curse and God’s wrath, None of us are perfect and that’s why we needed a saviour.

    I completely agree that ancient wisdom and symbols have been hijacked and twisted. This has been an area of research I have followed for quite some time. But I do not agree that the the recourse is to dive into the exact extreme position of absolute dark and light. That is just as serious of an imbalance. Light and dark are neither good nor bad. They just are. One can not exist without the other. They are each a critical part of Source. To swing toward a false perfect light is just as damaging as a false perfect dark. There are not absolutes, only extremes (which need to be avoided). The so-called “light” workers who attempt to obliterate dark are just as misguided and damaging to the transformation underway. “Light” can just as easily be corrupted as “dark.” In fact even more so. I would much rather have to deal with a blatantly dark force than a deceptively light force. The ancients understood this and thus honored both the light AND the shadow. We just lost it along the way due to a twisted need to own separate beliefs which led to power and control (on both “sides”). Source/ALL is experiencing a reset and these false values/conflicts are to become a thing of the past. Hold on for the ride!!!

  • Equal-armed crosses are, but the crucifix isn’t (and never was) a spiritual symbol. The original symbol of Christianity was the vesica piscis until the demonic Roman church replaced it with the calvary cross. Also, I wonder why the hexagram wasn’t included in this list. That’s one of the most beautiful symbols, representing (among other things) the union of human aspiration (upward pointing, masculine triangle) with divine grace (downward pointing, feminine triangle). Unfortunately it has been co-opted by that other demonic, pseudo-spiritual organization.
    It’s hard for me to fathom why the Abrahamic religions are not more widely recognized for the forces of unspeakable evil that they are. How many millions of people do they have to kill and torture, for how many millenia, before we admit it?

    The Tai Chi referred to as the Chinese ying/yang pre-dates China as a country. As a Daoist and the western hemispheres first Third Initiate of I Kuan Dao (a society of self-cultivators whose history precedes all formal western religions) offers those of all walks of life, belief and non-belief to participate directly in your own awakening. The Tai Chi is a symbol used by Daoists to express the physical/spiritual nature of The Dao (The Way of Quantum Physics). Also known as the clear and bright the presentation of the bright or light which instigates our existence within the clear or dark portion of the Tai Chi. Many confuse the dark or black portion with “evil” and the light with “good”. The dark portion is actually a compliment of the light as it is a representation of transparency thus clear. The human eye lacks receptors for black eg. the darkness of space is clear not black.

This NWO has been the plan since (of course this is only an opinion) Francis Bacon.

    The church pentagram is an illusion. Inside the upside-down pentagram are two, denser, right-side up pentagrams. These will attract the dark entities, suck them in and capture them inside the small one in the middle.

      That’s a nice belief, really.

      But the 60ties peace sign evolved from a design requested by nuclear disarmament activists in Great Britain during the same era. It stands, I believe, for the nautical flag letters ‘N’ superimposed on ‘D’. Nautical flag symbols, to explain, are a sailor with a flag in both hands flashing them in different positions to spell out words to a ship that’s within view but not within earshot. In one of these letters (forget which one) you hold your flags down by you sides. The other you hold them with your arms and body forming a ‘y’ shape. Thus an abbreviation for Nuclear Disarmament, one of the original and biggest “peace movements” of the post-WWII period.

    “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.”

    Right and wrong: TPTB stole the symbolism, but they are the OLD WORLD ORDER, not the new. The illuminati have never had any control, since their freemasonry was hijacked by the OLD WORLD ORDER blood who still rule today. And, who defamed the phrase NWO.

      “Right now they are in the highest places in the Church. They are working to bring about change in order that the Catholic Church would not be effective against Communism.”
