THE OCCULT SIDE OF WAR

History tells us that that the First World War began with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand at Sarajevo. That spark set fire to a tinder-pile of tensions, which had been building up for years.clive-uptton-the-assassination-of-archduke-franz-ferdinand

Was that spark just a stray event? A bullet from a fanatic, as history tells us? Or was it deliberately planned by sinister forces behind the scenes? Some strange things took place around the Archduke’s death, which suggest this may be the case.

These events centered around the Russian psychic and healer Grigori Rasputin (1869-1916). Also known as ‘The Mad Monk’ he rose from a peasant background to a life as healer and clairvoyant for the Russian elite.

That grand door opened for him because Tsar Nicholas II’s son, Alexei, had haemophilia. The boy was in constant danger of bleeding to death from the slightest cut or bruise.

The Tsarina, Alexandra, had heard of this strange magician from the provinces. One day a small accident put Alexei in real danger of death. In desperation, the Tsarina called for Rasputin. He came right away, and saved the boy’s life.

After that, he used his powers to rescue Alexei whenever he was injured. He also gave healing to most of the Russian court – especially if they seemed to need sexual liberation. Grigori-RasputinNevertheless, because he had real powers, and had saved her son’s life, the Tsarina doted on him. This made the Mad Monk one of the most powerful men in Russia.

Although most people have heard about Rasputin’s dissipated ways, not many know how much he hated war. He thought it was an unnecessary abomination. In 1914, he would certainly have used his influence on the Tsar to stop him from taking up arms. If he had, the twentieth century might have turned out very differently.

However, by a huge coincidence – or maybe not – at exactly the same time the Archduke died at Sarajevo, an unknown woman stabbed Rasputin, intent on killing him. This was the first sign of his strange power to survive murderous attacks. Nevertheless, he did need surgery and rest to recover. As a result, the man who might have changed the course of history was neatly out of the way just when the Tsar was deciding to go to war.

After that, Rasputin predicted that he would die violently before January 1st, 1917. He said if peasants killed him, the Tsar would reign for many years to come. However, if aristocrats did the deadly deed, he told the Tsar that “none of your children or relations will remain alive for more than two years.”

Within a short time, aristocrats did indeed set about trying to kill Rasputin. He miraculously survived their first attempts to poison and then shoot him. But they finally managed to murder the strange magician at the end of 1916. In July 1918, a firing squad executed the Tsar and his family. cayceAll had come true just as Rasputin had prophesied.

Far from ending all wars, as people hoped it would, the Great War eventually led to the Second World War. In October 1935, the famous psychic Edgar Cayce spoke of the coming holocaust in Europe. He said, “Unless there is interference by what many call supernatural forces and influences – which are active in the affairs of nations and peoples – the whole world will be set on fire.”

Fortunately, there was ‘interference’ from supernatural forces – operating directly through the general public. Wartime tends to increase interest in the paranormal. Worry about loved ones on the battle front is uppermost in most people’s minds. That’s made worse by the ban on anyone knowing where the soldiers might be.

Not hearing from them – or, even worse, being told they were missing in action – only added to the uncertainty. Because the ‘news’ was all war propaganda, people felt kept in the dark about things they were desperate to know. As a result, many turned to spiritualists, mediums, ouija boards and astrology for answers and reassurances.

Far from disbelieving in the paranormal, the British Government began to fear the potential of these messages from the other side. There was a chance this might reveal vital secrets to spies who’d infiltrated spiritual circles for that very purpose. So in 1943 an ancient law against prophecy was dusted off and reinstated. It was never meant as an attack on spiritual activities – it was there as a safety net to guard against the worst-case scenarios.

The allied authorities were keenly aware of the occult side of Nazism. They never publicly acknowledged this – but people knew anyway. Many were convinced that the war was a battle between good and evil.

The Nazi movement arose directly from a darkly esoteric secret society, the Thule-Gesellschaft. All the prominent Nazi leaders were practising occultists – in effect, black magicians. Even at the time, there were some clear outer signs of their mind-set. The swastika is an ancient Tibetan symbol of the life force; the Nazi salute was an occult gesture of power; and the rallies – especially the youth meetings – echoed the Black Mass in several key ways.

Clairvoyants, esotericists and mystics understood the signs, and were fully aware of the occult nature of the enemy. They were also sure the Nazis would exterminate them if they ever invaded. So they had good reason to throw all their powers into the fight. altar

Esoteric groups that normally worked in different ways now banded together for the extra strength of a united front. They used to focus on the Nazi leaders, and send them the chant “can’t cross the sea” – repeated over and over again in a hypnotic rhythm.

One group of wiccans made up batches of “go away powder” from an ancient secret recipe. They then made regular trips to the southernmost tip of Kent to throw it into the symbolically ebbing tide. Salt has special protective properties, and the salt water activated the properties of the powder. The wiccans also strengthened that effect with their intent, chants and imagery. 

A powerful coven in the New Forest raised a magical cone of power to protect Britain from invasion. This was the coven which the author Gerald Gardner belonged to. A few years after the war he revolutionized popular perceptions of wiccan ways with his book ‘Witchcraft Today’.

During this time one of the mediums received a vision of the Cross of Light poster. This was an equal armed cross of light with a rose in the center and a circle of light around it. This image became a powerful weapon of occult defense.

Groups would gather to visualize it hovering like a giant over Britain, keeping the forces of evil at bay. They also saw it holding the whole country and the allied forces within the circle of its protection. Posters of this image were printed off and put up in places like bus and tube stations, air raid shelters, soup kitchens and wherever people gathered because of the war.

Another important group involved with this work was Dion Fortune’s Society of the Inner Light in magical b of bLondon and Glastonbury. They too used mental images, mantras and rituals to maintain British invincibility and weaken the resolve of the enemy.

In the process, Dion Fortune felt that she was under personal psychic attack by a Nazi black magician. This battle left its mark on her. Her health suddenly declined, and she never recovered. Just before her death, her doctor’s wife remarked that she looked like ‘a burnt-out shell’.

As a Druid, the wartime Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, had his own personal csilent minuteonnections with the English esoteric milieu. He was apparently aware of their war effort and quietly supportive of it.

During the darkest days of the war, he took the advice of the mystical Tudor Wellesley Pole of Glastonbury and instituted the ‘silent minute’. At 9 o’clock every night on the striking of Big Ben, the nation stopped its activities and focused its collective mind on peace. This was a powerful magical practice, of which Churchill was probably aware.

The authors of ‘The Dawn of Magic’, Pauwels and Bergier, were convinced that the Second World War was really a magical battle – a struggle between gods. They said, “The problem must be faced. We shall never be safe from Nazism, or rather from certain manifestations of the satanic spirit, until we have aroused ourselves to a full awareness of the most fantastic aspects of the Hitlerian adventure.”

Official history gives us a superficial account of the past – just the tip of the iceberg. When we understand more about the reality beneath the surface of events, it will ultimately put us into a stronger position to deal effectively with what’s really going on.

A SURPRISE HEALING EXPERIENCE

I’m delighted to present this guest blog by Faith, about an amazing healing experience that took her completely by surprise.gate 2 by Thomas Kincade

A friend had to drag her along to an evening of clairvoyance, because she’s always been skeptical about that kind of thing. But after her mind-blowing experience there, she now has no doubt that loved ones who’ve passed to the other side really can – and do – give us accurate, helpful and loving messages with the power to heal old wounds of fear and doubt. And now read on….

LOVE NEVER DIES

When I moved to Glastonbury, I was warned to expect emotional ‘stuff’ to come up, that I would be obliged to address it and challenged to heal. Eek! But I had moved here inviting growth. Still, I’ve been astonished by one way that healing has happened.

For decades I had carried pain and anger about feeling abandoned by my beloved mother, who died when I was ten. Her loss seemed to have defined my life.

On the anniversary of her death this year, a friend asked me to go along to a clairvoyance meeting in Glastonbury – my first. I had always been skeptical and resistant, but as I heard loving messages being given to others, I relaxed and silently invited contact.

The next message was for me, said the medium, from my rather hesitant and tentative mother, who just wanted to say ‘I’m very proud of my girl.’ Through him, she referred to events and names from my childhood and a car accident of some thirty years ago with a  warning not to drive so fast – and not to be so driven in my life.

“Thermother and babye’s always tomorrow, relax and let life feel good, like on our holidays in Devon.” She also said she had been healing a recent problem with my leg.

I went home, found a photo of her as a smiling young woman and put it on display. Every time I look at it, I feel joy and peace, an exchange of her proud caring and my forgiveness and gratitude. She is with me now – clearly always has been – and my heart feels light. I have my mother back.

A month later I went again to the clairvoyance evening and a different medium approached me. She talked without asking me a single question. “There’s a lovely man here bringing a bunch of roses for you, his wife. He’s a proud and normally very private man, but he’s bathing you in so much love.”

My husband Al passed away with cancer seven years ago. From diagnosis to death had been a loving but dramatic and emotional journey for us both, as we tried to cope in our own different ways. His loss was devastating.

“He says that going to the spirit world was a big shock at first” continued the medium, “ because he had been skeptical about life after death and was surprised that souls in spirit can communicate with people in body.

“He wants to thank you for your care and complete devotion to him during his illness. Never be in any doubt that you did everything you could in an exemplary way. You couldn’t have done any more.

“He’s sorry for making everything so much harder for you than it needed to be. He should have taken more responsibility for his health, gone to the doctor when he first knew something was wrong. He knew for a few months that his death was likely and says he should have spoken out and made some arrangements.

“He watches over you and knows that when he died a large part of you died too. But he had to go, it was right for him. He wants you to walk out of here feeling lighter and more free.”

soul matesThe message had included specific dates, times and references that no medium could have guessed and I could feel my husband close. Finally I released the final vestiges of uncertainty and guilt and I am indeed light and free.

Both burdens of loss have now slid from my shoulders and I’m left with the certain reassurance that love between souls never dies, it just transforms into a different mode of togetherness.
