The Fifth Age

In this decode I will breakdown the Fifth Age concept. The coming ‘event’ that numerous Christians, Occultist, and New Agers have interpreted as the dawning of man and the beginning of the Fifth Age – the time of The Rock, as it is described in several forms of literature and showcased in mainstream media.

The Rock Fifth Age

Lets take a look at the Modern Christian interpretation first:

Daniel 2:45 This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces. “The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy.”

According to some modern Christian groups, the Rock is symbolic of the future event described in the Book of Revelation that revolves around the scripture detailing the arrival of Wormwood and the apocalyptic Four Trumpets. This is an important tie-in between scripture, as both events draw parallels.

From this perspective the Book of Revelation describes a cataclysm occurring as a single real world disaster, the impact of an asteroid with Earth – Wormwood. This is laid out for us in the scripture with the Revelation of the First Four Trumpets.

Revelation 8 New International Version (NIV)

7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

10 The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— 11 the name of the star is Wormwood.[a] A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

12 The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.

Empires of Daniel End Times

The Four Kingdoms of Daniel

Just as Biblical scripture provides us with the analogy of Four Trumpets and Four Kingdoms, there have been two primary approaches to understanding the four kingdoms of Daniel and the Four Trumpets of Revelation. Now in the Book of Daniel it is interpreted by manner that each layer of the statue represents a kingdom on Earth. There are thus four kingdoms and hence four ages. The first one (the “Roman” view) is the one that historically has been held by conservative interpreters: that the four kingdoms of Daniel are (1) Babylon, (2) Medo-Persia, (3) Greece and (4) Rome. The final age of man is represented in the mixing of Clay and Iron, signifying the Fifth Age which is destroyed by the Rock.

“Does the fact that Daniel tells us it strikes the statue on its feet of iron and clay prove that the church would rise after Rome was divided into East and West? I would say, “maybe.” Or possibly, he is saying that of the four kingdoms, the one during which this will happen will be the fourth–the one just described as iron mixed with clay. Daniel did NOT say that it would strike the legs after this kingdom divided, so we are left unsure.” – John Oakes

The mixture of Clay with Iron is seen by many as an allegory of the Power of Rome in the End Times. This may signify the fall of The Club of Rome – the modern-day Powers That Be desire to build up a NWO (New World Order) from the kingdoms of 10 powers.

Club of Rome Evil

A Club Of Rome = 666

“We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” – Paul Warburg

club-of-rome-network
In April 1968 a group of economist and global heads of state met at the private Rockefeller estate in Bellagio, Italy under the guise of establishing world peace via ‘A Club Of Rome’. The club (COR) recommended dividing the world into ten political/economic regions to be controlled via a smaller group of world leaders. The goal of the COR was to aid in the rise of a single form of government, or New World Order (New Babylon), which would then share resources via an economic system (cash-less society) while maintaining a smaller and less combative population.
The Ten Kingdoms are ten regions placed in order by the United Nations and called ‘A Club of Rome’, “The Ten Kingdoms” include these:

1.) The North American Union (Not Yet Established)
2.) The European Union
3.) Japan
4.) Australia/New Zealand
5.) East European Union/ Russia
6.) South America Union/Cuba
7.) Middle East/Northern Africa
8.) Africa
9.) Asian Union/ India
10.) China

“Ten world rulers, in confederation with Antichrist, the beast upon whom the woman sits, shall do exactly what the confederate armies under Sargon II did to Israel, what Nebuchadnezzar did to Judah, what the forces of Antiochus Epiphanes did to Palestine, and what Titus did to Jerusalem.” – Rev. Ted Pike

“… the Club has divided the world into ten political/economic regions, which it refers to as “kingdoms”. As the ten kingdoms/regions come together even more in preparation for the reign of the world ruler, we will see the regionalizing of money, then a globalization of monetary exchange or the “cashless society”. (Revelation 13) – Ministries Online.Org

“Throughout the world, the Club of Rome has indicated that genocide should be used to eliminate people who they refer to as “useless eaters.” This would be accomplished by using limited wars in advanced countries, and even a limited nuclear strike at a strategic location; as well as starvation through created famines and diseases in Third World countries.” – War On Satan Gematria Blog

Together these Kingdoms are what numerous Truth groups refer to as the NWO – New World Order, predicted to be controlled via a coming Beast who will rule as the Earths world leader, all under the guise of creating world peace. Some aspects of this kingdom, or New Babylon, are not yet in place including the cash-less system that Christians refer to as ‘Mark of Beast’.

“…there will be no peace in the tormented world, only a programmed and systematic series of wars and calamities until the plotters have gained their objective: an exhausted world willing to submit to a planned Marxist economy and total and meek enslavement in the name of peace.” – Taylor Caldwell

Club Of Rome Eugenics Illuminati
The Ten Toes Of Daniel Statue Are Ten Kingdoms Run Via Rome

The divided kingdoms shown in the Biblical vision of Daniel are thought to be the representation of the Club of Rome – Ten Kingdoms united via the Powers That Be to create a NWO. With each countries powers united they are divided BUT acting as ONE. The ten toes of the statue are thus mixed with clay and iron, as an allegory for the hidden power of Rome. Now in the present day the goals set via the Club are stated much like those of the early Eugenics movement. The ruling elite have stated that the Earth is under pressure via too many human lives. That many of these lives are compared to cattle and as such should be SACRIFICED.

Club Of Rome Eugenics Illuminati Puppets
The Old World Passes Away & The Fifth Age Begins

The upper elite and numerous occultist believe that the Fifth Age begins once the Rock (Asteroid Wormwood) crashes into Earth and sends the planet back decades. If this event is believed true, Truth groups report that the Elite are building homes 42 feet below the ground and have shelters in mountains and underground prepared for them and this coming event. The old world dies, so is the claim, and a new age begins. This final age lasts forever and is the dawning of new age man or the Ascended Master.

The Fifth Age Begins Wormwood Daniel Illuminati V RomanRoman Numeral V Fifth Age Peace Sign

Notice the so-called Peace hand sign above? The roman numeral V is the number 5, just as the V in the finger sign alludes to the number 5.

According to Texe Marrs in his Codex Magica, Winston Churchill was not only a high-ranking Freemason, he was also a hidden witch druid. As such, Churchill frequently made the satanic “V” sign whose “frequent use spurred the use of the device by an uninformed populace as a sign of victory.” A “victory for the devil”.

Modern occultist claim that Churchill was influenced by magician Alister Crowley who they say taught him the V hand sign gesture.

Die Young Illuminati Motto For The Fifth Age

The influence of these V symbols is shown in media along with the use by celebrities. The fingers are sometimes placed over one eye, an ode to the classic one eye symbolism of the occult. The terms, or mottos, Die Young are thus often repeated. What would such allegories have to do with “Peace”? Nothing. This young death allegory seems closely related to the concept of Eugenics and the Forced Sterilization programs launched via the Upper Elite and the Democrat party in the 1930s. A plan which led to the forced sterilization of 60,000 Americans, and inspired the Nazis. Die Young. Sacrifice everything. The ultimate goal of the elite is the reduction of Human lives. Churchill witnessed some 14,000 Black people die around him while in war. He thought little to nothing of their lives. In deed as a bloodline member of the Elite he was happy to see their demise. Churchill had long been a fan of Eugenics. The idea that holds some human beings as more important and worthy of life than others. This is a concept that is accepted by the Elites.

“The Children of Wickedness have generally taken great care to hide their existence and their long-term goals. However, now and then throughout history they have allowed their mask to slip and boasted openly of their wrath and malevolence. For example, when the Pope conspired with certain French royal families to slaughter the Huguenots in the infamous St Bartholomew’s Day massacre of 24 August 1572, he issued a medal boasting of his achievement” – Jeremy James

“All shelter areas are located behind 3 separate nuclear blast and radiation proof vehicle entrances, and a number of other passages for access by people only. Each of the three main tunnel entrances includes an outer security door system, followed by a 40 ton hydraulic truck access door with hardened steel rods which expand into the surrounding encasement, and a second set of massive steel doors providing an airtight seal shut, protecting against chemical, biological and gas intrusion.” – Forbes

Underground Illuminati Bunker

The Upper Elite are building numerous underground bunkers across the globe. Some of these bunkers connect major resources to them and are even funded via governments. Do these groups believe in the prophecy of a coming Stone?

The Fifth Age: New World Order

T.Marius on YouTube provides a few descriptions of the agenda of the numeral V as it applies to the occult belief that the world will herald in a Fifth Age that can destroy the past ages or Old World, and build up from the ashes an Illuminati world. One World under rule via the Elite and reduced greatly in population. To showcase their intention, these theorist believe the Elite are coding the film and media with symbolism as an ode  to their desired outcome. The end of old man, and the ascension of the master race of Elites.

New World Order George Bush Illuminati Fifth AgeThe New Age Views

Now that we have taken a look at both the Modern Christian interpretation, as well the hidden meanings attributed to the Elite, let us look at the New Age variation:

“Age of Aquarius” is an astrological term denoting either the current or forthcoming astrological age, depending on the method of calculation. Astrologers maintain that an astrological age is a product of the earth’s slow precessional rotation and lasts for 2,160 years, on average (26,000-year period of precession / 12 zodiac signs = 2,160 years).” 

According to the New Age trope – We are currently in the period of time called the Age of Aquarius. The alignment of our cosmic energies is radiating us on a higher plane of vibration drawing us closer to a time of ascension. This moment in our collective history will allow us to reach the potential of Godhood or present to us an even plane of reality with God-form beings called Ascended Masters – or our true self realized selves.

“in order to create, it is necessary to destroy.” – V. M. Samael Aun Weor

The symbol of the V is also realized through duality (the two fingers) and the symbolism of the fish as the zodiac of Pisces. Once the vibrations of the Universe have aligned to our new conscious we will ascend to the Fifth Age. This can be accomplished once the old world has been destroyed.

The_5th_Dimension_-_The_Age_of_AquariusThe 5th Dimension brought the song “Age of Aquarius” to number one on the billboards for 6 weeks in 1969. The power of the music for New Age groups at the time leant an air of credibility to the ideals of higher consciousness.

February 4, 1962 marked the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. Due to the great significance of the new era, the 4th of February bears a special meaning for Gnostic students. – in5d

To Summurize below are 3 perspectives on the Fifth Age: 

The Modern Christian Perspective 

1.) We Are In The Final Age Of Man – The Fourth Age

2.) Christ Will Usher In The Fifth And Last Age For All Eternity

3.) The Earth Will Go Through Trials Including Asteroid Wormwood

4.) Jesus Is The True Stone & Rock Of Ages

The Modern New Age Perspective 

1.) We Entered The Age of Aquarius In 1962

2.) The Universe Frequency Has Alligned & Vibrations Grow Stronger

3.) We Must Destroy The Old Cares To Create The Golden Age

4.) Man Will Ascend As His Own God In The Fifth Age

The Alleged Upper Tier Elite Perspective

1.) Humans Are In Need Of Control As The Lower Tier Are Mere Cattle

2.) The Global System Is In Place To Divide Resources Amongst 10 Powers

3.) The Old World Must Perish So The New World Order May Begin

4.) The Asteroid “Rock” Will Usher Us Into A Golden Age “Sacrifice Everything”

 

Thank you everyone for making 2016 another amazing year at this blog. I read plenty of feedback and took part in quite a few great discussions. This Gematria study will provide the readers with a 2016 year-end review of the most asked questions this blog received.

The most asked about topic this year was in regards to the animated film Zootopia. Much to my surprise, a film that was indicative of numerous tropes and ploys more commonly found in the most esoteric or occult of films was a “children’s picture”. This particular animated feature really drew a lot of attention for its consistent display of allegories, numerical symbolism, and esoteric tropes.

zootopia-esoteric

1.) Is Zootopia An Illuminati Occult Movie?

Zootopia features numerous color tropes as well as numerical clues of an esoteric nature. The film may be too intense for younger viewers, due to several scenes of “savage” animals. The film utilizes the classic color trope of Red Vs. Blue and gives several numerical schemes plenty of screen time, typical hex-craft usage of numbers 32 and 6 are prime example. Be sure to view the detailed Zootopia study on this site. It is for certain a film that utilizes a wide variety of allegory and hidden meaning which are more common to occult films by Jodorowsky.

What Is The Meaning Of 29THD03 License Plate In Zootopia?

In terms of Gematria or an esoteric means, the number 29 and number 3 would equal 32, a classic occult number. While the letters T (20th letter of alphabet) H (8th letter of alphabet) D (4th letter of alphabet) combined would equal 32, a classic case of hex-craft in which the hex of combining number and letter is used in occult practice to enchant the viewer. 3×2 = 6. The numbers may also be read as 29th D (December/Disney?) 03 (March or 3rd day?). The creators of the film have yet to reveal “their” reasoning behind the license plate numerology.

recep-erdogan-666

2.) Why Does The President Of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, Name Equal 666 In Gematria? Is Recep Erdogan The Antichrist?

His name includes the anagram of the word dragon for starters. All of the numerical combinations of names and their meanings were derived from ancient times, usually said to have been given to men by angels or Elohim. Recep Erdogan and US President Obama get along just fine, as Erdogan is a strong proponent of internet censorship, limited free speech, and tyrant policies. However with all his ill-natured behavior noted, he is not the antichrist, a central figure in Christianity also known as the “beast of sea”, who will appear during the Biblical end of age. According to the Book of Revelation, the Abyss, a dimension of the Netherworld or ether-realm, is the domain of the Assyrian king (also known as Antichrist), who appears along with “locust-like” beings after a star opens the shaft portal to this realm. This event occurs sometime near a giant Earthquake also occurring, at least according to scripture.

“In John’s vision they are supernatural demons from the Abyss. Natural locusts do not physically attack humans, but John’s locusts do, with the sting of the scorpion (vv. 4-5). Natural locusts, according to a biblical proverb, have no king (Prov 30:27), but these locusts do–the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon” – Biblegateway Revelation 9 Commentary

Author Craig C. White wrote the book “Presenting the Antichrist and False Prophet: Warning to Jerusalem (High Time to Awake)”, which describes Recep Erdogan as meeting certain criteria of the Antichrist. Despite all the authorship and warnings to the contrary the figure of “beast of sea”, as described in the Bible and in other sources, does not match any modern description or ideal king, as the singular Antichrist is unlike any “human” type leader the world is used to. The singular Antichrist is neither Barack Obama, nor the leader of Turkey.

3.) What Are The Most Common Found Signs Of Illuminati And What Do Occult Symbols Or Numbers Mean?

There are numerous occult or esoteric signs and symbols to be found used for the purpose of concealed magic, sometimes referred to as magika, a type of divining magic or hex-craft discipline which enables the magician (or adept of the occult) to enchant/entice (or even curse) those viewing such symbolism to come under any given spell. Symbolism of the esoteric variety is hidden in numerous ways and various formats.

a-ok-666-sign
Esoteric Symbolism In GQ Cover Including: A- OK Sign (A-OK Hand Mudra), Number 66, Red Vs Blue Trope Sin In Color Red / Washington In Color Blue

1.) A-OK HAND MUDRA = 666 (OK SIGN)

A ‘mudra’ is a seal or mark illustrated through a gesture to invoke spiritual powers or supernatural forces to submit under human will, typically practiced via the Neo-Hindo (Hinduism) or yogi religious systems. The A-OK hand sign is a form of spiritual gesture known in Hinduism as part of a ritual or divine hand-craft sometimes called ‘gyan mudra’.

“The Vitarka Mudra is usually performed by joining the tips of the thumb and the index fingers together while keeping the other fingers straight, which is pretty much similar to Abhaya as well as Varada mudra but with the thumbs touching the index fingers. The circle formed by the thumb and the index finger symbolizes the constant flow of energy and information.” – Burmese-Art.com

The A-OK sign itself is called ‘vitarka’, (or chin mudra if facing down) and is one of many powerful mudra used to channel energy or forces throughout the human body. The word ‘vitarka’ usually holds three important mental or critical thinking attributes including; opinions, thoughts, and divination. The A-OK hand gesture is performed by connecting the thumb and index finger into a circle, thus creating an ‘O’, known to the Hindo as the “Wheel of Darma”. This hand-mind connection is said to represent the ability to begin discussion as well as to connect to a hidden power.

“Literally the meaning of mudras is a seal. It is called so because it seals the mind with the soul. Excercises falling under mudra are associated with retention of breath. In fact bandhas and mudras go together. Mudras control the vital forces (pranas: and there by the mind in order to awaken hidden mystic powers.” – Completenaturecure.com

The vitarka mudra represents six occasional or particular mental factors found in certain consciousness.

Application Of Thought
Examining
Decision
Energy
Rapture
Desire To Act

For the upper tier elite, as well as those within the occult, the A-OK sign represents two-fold symbolism. The first being that of hex-craft and the typical 666 pattern, while the second represents the ‘Eye of Udjt’ (also known as the missing ‘Eye of Horus’).

“In ancient Sumeria and Persia, charms and amulets have been discovered of fingers and hands in the modern OK position, joined along with horns implying fertility. The three fingers extended outward are symbolic of ecstatic union with the Goddess, the third member of the pagan trinity. In Satanism, when making this sign the three fingers not used to make the circle are considered symbolic of the unholy trinity — horned God, Goddess, and offspring (antichrist). Some go so far as to adopt the view that the bent three fingers are shaped as three number six’s, or 666. Thus, we have 666, the sun deity (Lucifer), the Goddess (Mystery, Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots), and the beast (antichrist, 666), all in one unitary hand sign.” – Texe Marrs

In English Gematria ‘Wheel Of Darma’ = 666

Opinions = 666 / A-OK Hand + A Chakgya = 666 / A Mudra + A Six = 666

A Vitarka + A Hand = 666 / Eye of Udjt = 666 / Udjt Sigil = 666

pyramid-hand-sign

2.) PYRAMID HAND SIGN (RED UPPER PYRAMID / BLUE DOWNWARD PYRAMID) 

The hand gesture shown above is known within the Hindo (Hindu/Buddhist religion system) as the ‘trimunti mudra’. The upper pyramid sign and the lower pyramid sign are ancient gestures that are said to invoke the spiritual blessings or curses of the God/gods, depending upon which deity or entity the user calls upon. The ‘trimunti’ is a symbolic gesture that represents the Holy Trinity of gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Occultist often utilize the gestures of the upper pyramid and downward pyramid during magic rituals which involve the visualization of entities or spirit beings.

“We also understand that we are working with Godforms, not directly with the Gods, but nevertheless, the Godforms are directly connected to *actual Gods*, real living intelligences that are behind the forms, that, if you like are gracious enough to “lend us” their outer astral garments (forms) for the purpose of the ritual.” – Soror SD, Gods Of The Golden Dawn Comment

The hand mudra (meaning a mark or seal) is meant to represent the pyramid or three faces of the so-called three divine god set (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva). This gesture is also called three faces, and represents the conscious mind . The symbolic “three faces” also serves to remind the user of a three-tier energy field or ‘chakra force’ for general basic chakra stimulation, heart chakra, and frontal chakra. By using the gesture during a chant, or an internal vision quest, a connection to the spirit world is thought to be created. Hindo users utilize this trimunti mudra mostly while moving their arms during asanas.
downward-pyramid-hand-mudra
THE DOWNWARD PYRAMID
When the hands turn down towards the ground, it is called ‘trimurti mudra ajna’ (prithivi Earth)  This form of the triangle gesture is known as an Earth symbol, it is also called the ‘Water Sign’ or ‘The Blue Pyramid’. Amongst the modern religion of the Rastafarian Movement, the gesture is called the “Holy Trinity”. Like the ancient Hindo religion, Rasta believe that the mudra gesture showcases the concept of a ‘Divine Trio’, many believing it to be a father, mother, and child conception, while others insist it presents Marcus Garvey, Emmanuel, and Haile Selassie I, in the role of a “Holy Trinity”.  
 
“This significant hand symbol, which we call it the “Trinity”. In ancient kamet was called “Practicus” which was used by the first ancient kings of Ethiopia and the knowledge of it arose into the northern empire of Ethiopia which we call Kemet, called Egypt by the europeans. Remember that Kemet is the first child of Ethiopia, its wisdom came straight from Ethiopia, what is on its walls is still practiced today.” – David Penalosa, Torah Codes Comment
The gesture is oft used to showcase the ‘trinity concept’ (or complete the hexagram), as well as represent the famous color trope known as Red VS. Blue – the downward pointing pyramid representing the color blue, the upward pyramid the color red. Occultist who utilize the gesture for the purpose of magic may flash the downward pyramid while attempting to tap into supernatural forces from realms called the underworld or ether. This manner of hex-craft is a from of hand magic (sometimes called chaos magic), placing the pyramid in stark contrast to the upward pyramid gesture once used by the ancient Levite tribes. Occultist placing their hands in a downward pyramid may thus represent an opposite form to the ancient Levite tribe hand gesture known as the “blessing of God”.  In this manner, if it were the case, the use of the downward pyramid during ritual may allude to the concept of backwards magic, which mystic Aleister Crowley spoke of as doing things in reverse. When performed for occult purpose, this form of the mudra gesture is a type of hex or curse called ‘a practicus’.
In English Gematria ‘A Practicus’ = 666
“Practicus is a Latin word meaning, “one who practices,” or “one who takes action;” from the Greek praktikos, “fit for action, practical, effective.” The root idea is activity.” – Aleister Crowley
According to Occultist, ‘a practicus’,the hand gesture of the downward pyramid, constitutes the esoteric pathway of the elemental water force to flow – known also as the sign of Goddess Auromoth (Auramoth). This sign is one of five elemental grade hand gestures utilized within the rituals of occult magic, and partly conjured up by mystic Aleister Crowley. Crowley along with “Golden Dawn” members Mathers and Westcott concocted a blend of goddesses (mother deities) which eventually included a singular female deity known as Auromoth, or Auramoth (Auro, being the Aura/Chakra & Moth, being the Mother). While this so-called goddess did not exist during any ancient period, she currently represents several syncretized deities from the classical and ancient period, all in order to fit in with the famous elemental color trope of Red Vs. Blue – where Auromoth is the so-called water bearer or “Blue Mother”.
“Even Westcott and Mathers did this to some extent – Thoum-aesh-neith and Auramooth mean “torch bearer” and “water of light”, they are not traditional Egyptian godforms. But the 0=0 fromat requires Fire and Water Officers. So they, essentially, made some up.” – Nick Farrell, Gods Of The Golden Dawn
 In English Gematria ‘ Auromoth’ = 666  

“I’ve always assumed that Crowley was referring to the Godform assumed by the officer in a Golden Dawn ceremony. E.g. The Stolistes would assume the Godform of the goddess Auramoth and in the GD (Golden Dawn) that is a “hieroglyph” of standing with the two hands over the solar plexus forming the inverted triangle of water. The same figure in the GD (Golden Dawn) was used as the grade sign of a Practicus 3=8 (Hod, Water). The person making this sign becomes a hieroglyph, so to speak.

The signs and gestures in such a ritual are “hieroglyphs” and so the magician is effectively writing, using his body as a pen, upon the aethyr. The Magus is the Word, and so forth.” – Oliver St. John

upper-pyramid

 

THE UPWARD PYRAMID

When the hands turn up towards the air, the triangle gesture is called ‘trimurti mudra vayu’ (vayu Air). This form of the hand mudra is known as a sky symbol, it is also called the ‘Fire Sign’ or ‘The Red Pyramid’. As in the case of the occult, several mudra complete the concept of hand gestures in place of five elemental forces.

“The fingers are essentially electrical circuits. The use of mudras adjusts the flow of energy – affecting the balance of air, fire, water, earth, ether – and facilitate healing. Mudras create a subtle connection with the instinctual patterns in the brain and influence the unconscious reflexes in these areas.” – Art Of Living.Org

During the ancient period of the 12 tribes of Israel, a priestly group known as the Levites took on the duties of the blessing ceremony, which included the elements of water and fire, dedicated to the blessing of the assembly of tribes and in honor of God. Numerous scholars believe these groups to have been a previous unknown secular group of tribes that would in time constitute the Levite sect. According to Jewish tradition the Levites were descended from Levi, the third son of Jacob and Leah. The Levites would wash the hands of the priest with water prior to offering of the priestly blessing. The Levites used two hands with thumbs touching and fingers paired and split in the famous ‘V’ configuration, representing the Shin gesture and as an emblem for El Shaddai , “God Almighty”. This ancient gesture is sometimes called the “Blessing of God”. The gesture was later used, although with only one hand rather than the proper two hands to create a triangle, by actor Leonard Nimoy in the science fiction TV series Star Trek. That gesture was known as the Vulcan blessing sign of “Live Long And Prosper”.

“Of all the Jewish hand signs, the most famous is that of the priestly blessing, the Birchat Kohanim, and yet it is rarely seen. This is the sign of both hands outstretched at shoulder height under a tallit, with the fingers spread apart, as the Kohen blesses the congregation. The Kohen’s face is covered. The hands in the position of the priestly blessing are often seen as decoration on jewelry or on the tombstone of a Kohen.

The hands are held with the fingers straight ahead with the little finger of each hand separated from the ring finger and a space between the second and third fingers. There is a further space between the two thumbs, making a total of five spaces. The palms are face downwards. The right hand is placed slightly above the left. This raising of the hands during the blessing is called the nesiat kohanim.” – Lorne Rozovsky, Chabad.Org

The priestly blessing of the Levites differs from the ‘trimurti mudra vayu’ gesture that is commonly used by those within the occult or within the Hindo (Hindu/Buddhist religion system). That gesture was given the title of the ‘Red Pyramid’, and is known as a fire sign. The magic system of ‘The Golden Dawn’ applied to the gesture the title of “Sign of Goddess Thoum-aesh-neith”, another syncretized Egyptian god of occult invention.

Celebrities along with the upper tier elite, including figures such as Satanist Anton LaVey and European spy Adolf Hitler have all used the gesture to symbolize their occult power, or fire balance. The symbol fits in with the familiar trope of Red Vs. Blue, an elemental illustration for power and energy.
