The Symbolic Burning of the Knights Templar at the 2014 Grammy Awards

The performance of the song “Dark Horse” by pop singer Katy Perry at the 2014 Grammy Awards left many in the audience disturbed; it looked like a satanic style ritual, replete with demons, witches, and a giant crystal ball. Yet it was much more than that—it contained a deep occult message, which I’ll break down below. At its crux was the celebration of the burning of the Knights Templar—a famous spiritual order who were said to have an inner Gnostic circle, and who were persecuted out of existence in 1314 by burning at the stake.

So why on earth would this event be relived in such a satanic style setting, in a completely unrelated song, in a mega pop music event, and indeed even at all?

The Knights Templar – the Jedi of the Middle Ages


An illustration of the Knights Templar who were both monks and warriors, just like the Jedi.

The Templars are symbols of something broader—they were the “Jedi” of the Middle Ages. And this link has a very real basis: in the early treatment of the film Star Wars the Jedi were called the “Jedi Templars” (they became the Jedi Knights instead). Both were warrior monks who had a spiritual order and who fought to protect good.

The Jedi themselves have become a timeless symbol of spiritual groups in different cultures who have possessed the esoteric knowledge of light and have opposed the hidden forces of darkness influencing the world—the demons and black magicians described in ancient myths and religions. This sinister symbolic celebratory burning of the “Jedi” by demons (the “Sith”) starts to make sense when you realize how heavily the music industry is influenced by dark forces.


Originally called the Jedi Templar – in the films they were warrior monks who preserved the esoteric knowledge of the use of the force for light in their spiritual order, and who fought to protect good against the demonic Sith. The concept of the Jedi was at least partially based on the Knights Templar.

Although so much of pop culture is now riddled with dark occult symbology, this event stands out as important. It lays bare an agenda of evil that has always been, and will always be, against those who practice the esoteric knowledge of light. This agenda today manifests in the western world through things like persecution, bigotry, the ostracism, stigmatization and smear campaigns against those who practice alternative spirituality, the corporatization of spirituality, the censorship of alternative beliefs, the move to a one world humanistic religion, and the witch hunts of the media etc.

Song “inspired” by black magic

There is a weird sense while watching the performance that what is happening on stage doesn’t really match the lyrics at all; and that there is something else entirely going on. Apparently the song was “inspired” by the movie The Craft, which was about the foray of a group of young women into witchcraft that even led one to use her powers for murder. Katy said she wanted the song to have a “witchy, spell-y kind of black magic-y idea”, and wrote it from the perspective of a witch warning a man not to fall in love with her because if he does, she will be his last.

So I get that there are witches running around on stage, but this is no costumed Halloween ghoul-fest—the Knights Templar, and even allusions to a crucified Jesus and Joan of Arc all make a symbolic appearance, which have nothing to do with the storyline of the song at all.

Katy asked for black magic, and indeed someone behind the scenes used it as an opportunity to bring the public unknowingly into participating in a mock ritual of black magic—let’s look at how.

A breakdown of the symbols

You can watch the performance here:

The casting of the spell, the crystal ball, and the black magicians

Dark Horse_crystal ball

Katy Perry stands within a giant crystal ball as a vision of the future, and four demons all dressed in black with horns stand behind her conducting the ritual.

It starts with Katy Perry dressed like a witch, standing within a giant crystal ball. A demonic voice announces that she has “cast a spell” and “invoked the spirits” (these lines were added especially for the Grammy performance and do not appear in the original lyrics of the song).

The announcement of the casting of a spell is a clue that a black ritual is about to take place. In rituals of black magic, inter-dimensional demonic entities are invoked—hence the reference to the invoking of spirits.

And so in the performance four giant demons/black magicians replete with Baphomet style horns and cloaked all in black rise above her showing that they are the real conductors of the ritual that follows,whilst Katy is merely the subject.


Similar imagery appears in this illustration of a black ritual.

Four is an important number. It represents materialism (the opposite of spirituality) and is used in ceremonies of black magic, which are usually conducted by four participants. The crystal ball is something that reveals the future, and by Katy appearing within it tells us that what is about to happen to her is that future.

Baphomet by Eliphas Levi

The illustration of Baphomet by Eliphas Levi from 1856, long after the Templars. The lit torch above the head of Baphomet was said by Levi to represent “the image of the soul elevated above matter”. By removing this light, what is left is only matter.

The Templars themselves were accused of worshipping Baphomet, which some of them were supposed to have admitted to under torture. Back then Baphomet was not the figure of Satanic worship that it is today. What has been adopted by the “demons” in this performance, by the music industry, as well as by the Church of Satan, is specifically the head of Baphomet, as illustrated and explained by the occultist Eliphas Levi in 1856.

The beast’s head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes.
~ Eliphas Levi in Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie (“Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic”)

The head itself symbolizes the dominance of materialism and the animal ego. Ironically, and perhaps deliberately, the Baphomet style horns serve as a mockery of the Templars, as any Baphomet symbol the Templars may have used was most likely intended to illustrate the spiritual rising from out of the material; the inverse of what this performance portrays, which is instead the domination of the spiritual by the material.

Demonic minions prepare the ritual

Goblin styled dancers surround Katy; these demonic creatures can be seen in out-of-body experiences and in hellish near-death experiences. They are the minions of demons who don’t possess the same level of evil intelligence that the overlords of the rituals do as my husband Mark has seen out of the body, but do the minor works, like preparing for the ritual in this performance.

The presence of the Knights Templar

Dark Horse_templar cross

The red cross of the Knights Templar clearly worn on Katy’s chest as it was by the knights themselves. They wore white, but she’s wearing black – another inversion.

The red cross of the Knights Templar lights up on Katy’s chest, shining brightly amidst the otherwise entirely black setting. Usually crosses like this are inverted in black rituals and so at first I couldn’t understand why this one wasn’t. However, as the show continued, the reason for this became chillingly clear.

The Knights Templar you could say, were the “Jedi” of the Middle Ages in Europe, and would have had both an exoteric or public order, and an inner circle which appeared to have possessed the esoteric knowledge of light, and who could be described as Gnostic (those who seek inner spiritual knowledge through direct experience, rather than through the orthodoxy of religion). They used the Gnostic deity of Abraxas on their official seals, and are believed to have had contact with mystical esoteric schools from the East. It’s almost certain they discovered unknown Christian relics beneath the Temple Mount which was the site of their headquarters in Jerusalem.

Esoteric knowledge is the understanding of the hidden, spiritual realities of life. It lies at the heart of the eternal struggle between good and evil in the world, and can be used just like “the force” in Star Wars by both the Sith and Jedi. Those who tap into it for evil do so to awaken the power of darkness within themselves, which they use for control, whilst those who use it for light do so to awaken inner spiritual faculties to help others out of love. This performance revealed the agenda of those who use it for evil, against those who use it for light.

Again, the parallel between the Jedi and the Knights Templar was something deliberately done by George Lucas. The Jedi were actually called the Jedi Templar in an early treatment of Star Wars, and the films used Elstree studios located in the county of Hertfordshire in England, which was the British headquarters of the Knights Templar. The decline of the Jedi in the film Revenge of the Sith has been compared to the same decline suffered by the Knights Templar.

The Templars obviously belong to the past (their inner circle possibly escaped and went underground, but that lineage of esoteric knowledge for good has long been broken), and yet this performance is about the future, so it is clear they are being used as symbols of something broader, which are those who practice the esoteric knowledge of light just like the Jedi, and who struggle against the forces of darkness to spread it in the world.

The broomstick, kundabuffer, and crucified Jesus

Dark Horse_witches broomsticks

Katy Perry and two demons dance around three broomsticks. This is an inversion of the imagery of Jesus crucified with two thieves either side of him.

The usual denigrating scenes then start to mock the principle of the Christ (the Spiritual Sun), as Katy begins pole dancing wearing the symbol of the upright cross. But this is no ordinary pole—it’s a broomstick, with a demon doing the same either side of her. This conjures up images of a crucified Jesus between two thieves. However, instead of the three crosses on the mount of skulls, there are three brooms with Katy and the cross central.

Jesus crucified with two thieves beside him.

The broom is a symbol of the Kundabuffer, or demons tail. As Mark explains in his work, it is an energy that is awakened by black magicians/demons and is the opposite of the Kundalini, which is risen in people awakening in light. A witch on a broomstick is a symbol of a female demon who has awakened the Kundabuffer. The use of the broom, and the denigration of the spiritual symbol of the cross, creates an inversion—turning something spiritual into its opposite, which is something that belongs to darkness. The inversion of spiritual symbols of light is a signature of the black arts.

The setting of the spiritual sun

Dark Horse_setting sun

The sun setting just before the finale of the ritual takes place. It symbolizes the decline of the spiritual sun/Son.

While this distracting dancing is going on, you can easily miss the bright orange light that shines overhead and then sets, representing the setting sun.

The sun represents the spiritual sun/Son; ancient peoples understood the significance of this, which is why they aligned their megalithic temples to it.

There is an earthly sun, which is the cause of all heat, and all who are able to see may see the sun; and those who are blind and cannot see him may feel his heat. There is an Eternal Sun, which is the source of all wisdom, and those whose spiritual senses have awakened to life will see that sun and be conscious of His existence.
~ Paracelsus

The fact that it is setting is important. This supreme symbol of divine light goes into darkness, as in this dark ritual they are representing the fall and destruction of those who carry this spiritual light within. The ritual then takes place in the greatest darkness, as rituals of black magic do – neither under the light of the moon nor sun, as they celebrate the waning of light, not its waxing nor its fullness.

The demonic minions continue preparing for the grand finale of the ritual by pouring flammable liquid around Katy, with one even holding it up to show the audience exactly what is going on.

The burning of the Knights Templar

Dark Horse_burning of templar

Then all of a sudden, giant flames rise around Katy, as she stands like a crucified Jesus stamped with the cross of the Templars, burning alive. Finally the purpose of the ritual is revealed. My jaw dropped as I remembered what happened to the Knights Templar that few watching would know. Dozens were arrested on false charges by the King of France (who had a hidden agenda), tortured, and then burnt alive in 1310 (the last Grand Master of the Templars was burnt alive in 1314). And at the 2014 Grammys, that event was symbolically relived to the cheers of a modern crowd.

The burning of Joan of Arc, the Cathars, and the crucifixion of Jesus

Dark Horse_joan of arc

This imagery looks very much like one thing – the burning of Joan of Arc at the stake.

But it wasn’t just the Templars symbolically burning. Joan of Arc, who could also be called a “Jedi” in a sense, was also burnt alive as a heretic on false charges; it was said moments before her death she asked to see a cross before her eyes, and that cross was symbolically present on Katy’s chest who appeared just like Joan of Arc in the flames. To allude to her being a witch (being burned against a broomstick) again is another mockery, as she was portrayed as a witch during her trial and this formed part of the false accusations that led to her execution. The Cathars were another Gnostic group that were burnt alive in France not long before the Templars. And with the three broomsticks and cross, it also appeared to allude to the symbolic crucifixion of Jesus.


The unmistakable image of Joan of Arc as she was burned at the stake. Notice the cross she is wearing, again like Katy.

These four horrendous betrayals and murders were a time of celebration for the hierarchy of inter-dimensional demonic entities that exist out-of-the body and have their connection through people awakened in darkness in sinister secret societies. They had a hand in these events, because as my husband has experienced, they know of and exploit the stage of persecution that happens to those who go through the process of enlightenment.

Wherever you see the mockery and celebration of the persecution of those who have given and practiced a spiritual message, it most often means demonic entities are behind it. The destruction of the warriors and workers of light is a moment of supreme pleasure for evil, and unwittingly millions watching took part in celebrating some of these moments which have stood out as truly black marks on the pages of history.

The future of the Jedi as the Sith would like it

Knights Templar_burning of Molay

Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar being burned at the stake in 1314.

This was a celebration of what evil has done in the past, and also the present, in annihilating the spirit. But it was also something foretelling the future. Katy emerged from the crystal ball, she was the subject of the spell/ritual, and was symbolically burnt alive. The present and future that the hierarchy of evil wants is one in which history repeats, where the warriors of light continue to be persecuted and the esoteric knowledge of good destroyed, and this is happening right now—for example, their sinister mechanism has persecuted and wiped from the public eye my husband Mark, who gives this same esoteric knowledge today.

Why is sacrifice so present in black rituals?

One important part of this ritual is the element of sacrifice, as in this mock ritual Katy symbolically stands in as the sacrificial victim. You’ll often see sacrifices as part of occult rituals—some famous ones include the cremation of care at Bohemian Grove, and the sacrifice of children to the ancient demon Moloch by the Canaanites.

Sacrifice itself is a principle of creation; everyday things are sacrificed in order that something new is created. Trees were sacrificed to make the paper we write on, coal and landscapes to power our computers, plants and animals to make our next meal etc. It is even said that the Mayan act of creating humanity was based on the self-sacrifice of the god Quetzalcoatl. Nothing comes from nothing—in other words, everything has to come from something.

As Mark writes, for someone going through the process of spiritual awakening, in order to create light, the things of darkness need to be destroyed and given up within ourselves and our lives—so for example, in giving up our hatred in order to have love, our aggression to have inner peace, negative habits and behaviours to have mystical experiences and gain faculties etc. Because darkness is an inversion of light, for those who awaken the powers of evil it is the reverse—they sacrifice those things that are pure and good, in order to create greater power for darkness and evil. Light takes away darkness, and darkness takes away light. This is what creates the eternal struggle between the forces of darkness and light as illustrated in the ancient Hindu teaching of The Churning of the Milky Ocean.

Those of light self-sacrifice, whilst those of darkness sacrifice things of light, and here is where events like the passion of Jesus and the ritual celebration (not mourning) of his death by darkness meet, which is one reason why we’re seeing it more and more in the entertainment industry.

Revenge of the Sith or a new hope?

So this was a clear message directed at anyone out there who is aspiring to the process of enlightenment. Tragically, the “Sith” and their network of evil have done an extensive job over thousands of years at destroying the esoteric knowledge of light and those who practice it, to the point that all most can do is laugh at it, if they even ever get to hear about it at all. This has led us to the point we’re at now, where the “Sith” control the world. It’s worth remembering though, that the fate of the galaxy was determined by the return of one Jedi, and this means that there is the chance of a new hope.

    This is so helpful to me , thank you all so much. I want to agree with the comment above about how the evil ones of darkness like to reveal their plans in advance and if no one opposes them, it is their signal to proceed ! We have seen this in almost every false flag attack done in recent history ! There were military operations they called (DRILLS) being conducted of the exact real world events that followed 9/11, Sandy Hook School, and many many more and they were actually conducting the drills on the very same day as the very same real world events happened!
    Their M O is by deception, how many times have we heard the term smoke and mirrors? Washington DC = Washing a TON, DC= Deception Capitol ! And always saying the American “Dream” They DON’T want us AWAKE! Men with forked tongues!
    May we all be filled with GOD’S Light and Eternal Strength and Courage to put this darkness back in it’s place!
    Thank you again.

    Hi Lara,

    Thanks for your insightful analysis of this performance, it has definitely given my husband and I food for thought, it’s just a shame that these pop stars are applauded for their ‘ ground breaking performances ‘ I especially found the four horned demons at the beginning especially disturbing. The whole feel of the song , the vibrations are of a lower level , all to keep the masses fascinated

    This article and this site is such a jewel. The link to Kate Bush’s video was also a reminder to myself as a practicing spiritualist and song writer that these messages are what the content of my music is all about.

    I am a bit unconfident in the return of 1 Jedi. Over the course of our history there has always been the One. They always kill the One which spiritually kills the hope of the people because they are always “following” the One. Now, as a magickal practitioner of all things Goddess, I believe that it is She, the collective power of women on this planet, that is the salvation of all. The awakening of our inner light. We have to be the many now and that will form the One.

    The story of Inanna descending into the underworld is a much older version than the descent of Jesus. Also, the theatrics as a means to affect the material and spiritual realities is key. The Egyptians for instance conducted rituals that were like plays. We must began to play at (be like little children) creating our reality.

    The powers that are controlling the Katys of the world are practicing their rituals everyday. We have to be as diligent if not more in collectively and ritually bringing more light into this world.

    I really enjoyed this site and your writing and now that I have found you I will be visiting frequently. Love & Light

    Yes, this is a terrible theatrical performance, an insult to us all.

    However, how many so-called creative persons employed by the “entertainment” industry are actually responsible for orchestrating performances like this one? Not to mention the London Olympics’ ceremonies, Madonna’s Superbowl debacle, etc.

    All I’m saying is, it would be interesting to know who is providing the creative direction behind this. The musicians cannot possibly all be experts on black magic imagery. They are writing music that seems unrelated to black magic, but then videographers get ahold of it and that’s how these performances seem to originate.

    Isn’t there a name in the credits that tells us who is responsible for the imagery? Wouldn’t it be interesting if there were fewer than a half dozen or so visual directors of public pop music performances who are all in cahoots, reenacting black magic rituals on stage for this artist or that artist.

      Hey Patrick,

      Good point. I think there is a lot of ground to be covered (or darkness that is in need of uncovering) of the mechanism and people behind the pop stars in the front spotlight. An area shouting for some great investigative journalism. But I think it’s not easy as those people like to stay in the dark and act from it, hidden behind others. An Edward Snowden of the music industry would be great 🙂 But not something likely to happen…. So hopefully some people can keep researching various parts and together reveal the bigger picture.

      The more that is uncovered and the more that patterns become obvious the less power these things will have (at least over the people who are informed about it.) And If the picture is just so clear that the truth becomes obvious it will be able to convince larger groups of people as well.

    Katy Perry did sell her soul but not to the devil. She sold it to a demon who cons/tricks people into giving up their souls for the promise of fame and fortune. It is a test of greed and vanity which many people fail. Unfortunately for them the only way to get their souls back is to repent. They view it as unfortunate because they will lose their way of life and be punished for their selfish mistakes. If they choose not to repent they continue down the path of darkness where competition reigns between demons and the weak suffer as puppets of darkness which is exactly what Perry and many others are. I also hear she is a white supremisist racist – that’s what they say – a little birdie in my ear told me. People like her are headed for the most terrible suffering if they choose not to repent and confess to their pathetically self sorrowing arrogant ways. I wish her strength in repentance.

        Not to get off topic, but I feel compelled to comment here. I’m not passing commentary on whether or not Bob Dylan actually sold his soul to the devil. I just want to comment on this particular video and the claim that he has based this interview. How do people know that by “chief commander” he’s not referring to God? After all, he is a religious man by his own admission, and one who converted to Christianity as an adult. Plenty of people “make bargains with God” in their prayers. Like “dear Lord, help me through with this (become a great musician, maybe?) and I promise this, that, and the other (to believe in you all my life? To use my music for such and such a cause?),” etc. I know there’s plenty of worship of dark forces going on in the entertainment industry. That is plenty obvious. But this interview snippet is too vague in my opinion to draw any conclusions.

    Thanks for taking the time for analysing this video Lara and sharing it with us. Like many others I’ve also missed some key points after seeing this performance the first time. I don’t see clear connection between this video and crucifiction of Jesus and the three thieves, but I do see a definite connection of the sacrifice of the forces of light (whether that be Joan of Arc, Templars or Cathars). The descending sun symbol also shows clearly what the message is all about.

    Hope these things become more known to people, although it’s interesting to observe in some Western countries how people promote the total freedom of religion, which means the freedom of Satanic religion as well (which includes their freedom of expression). The world is in quite a mess today.

    Thank you Lara for the decoding of this ritual. Definetely I couldn’t comprehend all these extensions of this “dance”, as the burning of Knights Templars and Joan of Arc and the monking of crucifixion of Jesus.

    It’s also really very very sad the persecution of knight templars, the burning of Grand Master, Joan of Arc and Cathars and the crucifixion of Jesus. These horrendous betrayals and murders as you mentioned, it was big defeats for the humanity that probably their effects the humanity pays heavily until now.

    I have no words to express my sorrow for all these events…

    Thanks Lara and for those who made some interesting observations within their comments.

    I too feel like humanity has fallen and it is sad that life has itself become a ritual, by that I mean monotonous and no different to a hamster on the wheel of life. A good friend only recently made comment to me that it is best to work on our inner demons rather that try to buck the system (authorities, corporations and so on). This made perfect sense to me as inner change is what is urgently needed. It is only through these darkness which surrounds us we can clearly see what needs to be done and worked on.

    All the strength…

    I came across a perhaps contrastingly different music video from the 80s that seems to be invoking forces of light and protection. It is called Lily by Kate Bush and sings about a circle of fire and the angels Uriel, Raphael, Michael and Gabriel who are being called to undo a dark spell on the artist. You can see a circle of fire being drawn and demons that cannot enter it. I am surprised to find a positive music video of the esoteric side and am wondering if there is more out there.

    Here is the link to Lily by Kate Bush:

      Hidden by a disc of golden light

          I wonder though if this is actually “something of the light” or just mocking things from the light. Like the way you can find pentagrams pointing up, as a way to mock or water down the true power of the symbol.

          I think so too Lucia, I have often surprised myself after stumbling across several songs written in the past and how spiritual and profound their messages were. (For instance some of Joan Baez and Pete Seeger’s work is very spiritual and meaningful) Seems today all this is being drowned out by this unfortunate orchestrated evil agenda…

          • Lucia October 7, 2014 at 9:29 am

            You actually made me look into Kate Bush a bit, and I found she was very interested in esoteric phenomena, inclusing UFOs, and also studying Gurdijeff for some time. It seems she didn’t have time to go deeper into it though due to her busy musician’s life.

        Thanks Olga for the nice musical surprise. The lyrics are really inspiring, but personally I cannot say the same for the performance – it still has too many pop elements, albeit not as raw as in modern music.

        Some of the most inspiring performances I’ve found are in traditional operas and ballet. The lyrics and music are beautiful, but what’s most striking is the behavior and movements of the people. There is often much grace and beauty in them, which most popular modern performers don’t have/show.

          That’s a really nice example of a positive esoteric message in music Olga, thanks for that. Yes, a pity she didn’t take up her esoteric interest further. It’s funny how worldly success can appear to be dharma, but really it’s a kind of karma when it takes our attention away from the spiritual.

      Thanks for sharing that. It’s an interesting find Olga, I hadn’t seen it or heard from her before.

      I think though that some of the current dark music videos have a real link to a dark agenda and are promoting their dark doctrine and plan through those videos. Whereas I don’t think this video by Kate Bush is genuinely connected to the light. I think she has a positive intention, which I think is great. Videos like this ,or most videos promoting positive values, really don’t come by anymore it seems. It simply doesn’t fit in the current ‘industry.’

    • Lara Atwood October 22, 2014 at 1:49 pm - Reply

      Great find, thanks Olga. I think it must be the only music video I have ever seen with esoteric elements of the light in it.

      Music is such a profound way that we express, feel and understand things, and why it is so powerful. So it is tragic that dark sounds, vibrations, lyrics and symbols are now saturating pop music.

      Despite some classical music being a great source of spiritual sound, and with some of it even containing esoteric elements (like Mozart’s Masonic Music), it’s just not where most people, particularly young people, are at.

      Just take a look at the most downloaded videos on YouTube; they are dark pop songs, and have absolutely staggering numbers of views.

      If only there was popular music of light to counter the darkness. Even pop songs like this,, which contain spiritual lyrics and principles in them, could be enough to at least serve as an inspiration.

        Interesting lyrics Lara. You made me look more into how it came to be, and I found the lyrics were written by a pop singer Martika, who was popular in late 80-ties and early 90-ties. When I listened to her version of this song, I actually remembered it from that time. It seems she had written a lot of nice lyrics and her voice was very similar to that of Madonna (she had Cuban origins too). But after this song she actually mysteriously disappeared from the top pop-music scene. Another one with a nice lyrics is her song Spirit, here is the lyrics:

    Hi, Lara. Your comment below about hoping that this article “will make some people realize that esoteric things are not a joke, and are not evil; that they have real power and implications, which is why they are under such a direct attack” was what I felt really came across in the article overall- this message that it’s important to deeply question what values rule society today. Thank you for depicting everything here so clearly and tying in all the great historical references.

    This is so unbelievable and at the same time the tragic reality of our days.

    I wouldn’t neither have notice the negative meaning of these symbols and especially the depth of their negativity without this analysis, although the video does give some bad feeling that something is going wrong.

    If we could only understand this reality more deeply I feel it could help us be more determined towards facing our inner work and life more responsible and meaningful.
    I feel deeply it’s very important to be aware of these things and to try to see what’s beyond the things they provide and want us to believe, so we can protect our lives and make the right decisions, so we can help and not harm.

    Thank you very much Lara for analyzing and sharing this very meaningful and powerful information.

    I had watched this video clip in the past and I found it quite disturbing. It was clearly praising evil. It was obvious that something was seriously wrong but I couldn’t really understand the symbolism behind it. What you are describing though makes a lot of sense Lara. It lays bare the agenda of anyone that organized such a show.

    The fact that a ritual like this can actually happen in front of so many people without any considerable reaction against it is very concerning. I feel it opens the way for even worse things to happen.

    This theme of sacrificing seems to be repeating quite a lot the past few years. What is usually the theme is sacrificing innocence and goodness in order to become ”cool”, famous and rich. For example Miley Cyrus and Beyonce went through similar phases where they sacrificed their goodness in order to become the ”bad” girls and that made them very famous.
    Ironically, Beyonce was shown burning in the video clip for her song ”Crazy in Love” in order to later emerge as a completely different person, The way it was presented was as if she had left her good side burning behind. Her music became very different after that and she became extremely famous.

    When I first began studying esotericism I did not know much about the Templars and their connection with gnosis, yet in my dream analysis, astral projection and lucid dreaming I would see them very often and sometimes communicate with them. They are always very brightly illuminated so that in the darkness you can see their temples are very colorful, like a bioluminescence. In my experience they seem to be connected with masonry, or their activity at least parallels masonry. They had a massive presence in a town that recently made the news in the USA, but just before that event happened. Now that I begin to learn about the connection between Templars and Gnosis I am further convinced that there is a great depth and shared reality in the internal worlds. It is encouraging to have something validated.

    ”It’s worth remembering though, that the fate of the galaxy was determined by the return of one Jedi, and this means that there is the chance of a new hope.”

    Thank you Lara for your well researched article and for this final closing inspiration of hope. While so much evil goes on around us, it does seem timely to strengthen our own force of light and let it make its own historical impact. While the darkness continues its mockery let the light shine forth.

    Watching this just makes me feel disturbed, sick and depressed. I guess such obviously dark horrible shows would get accepted by the millions because it’s on tv, and a part of the Grammy’s. I can’t imagine that the love of the light and virtue would have completely disappeared on such a large scale yet. It’s just too easy to accept and go along with these kind of powerful external influences if you don’t know any better and don’t have a set of higher values, and if all your friends are excited about it too. You need to have the information but moreover the experience of light and darkness to know which direction you need to go, otherwise it’s just confusing and you have no power to resist them.

    Like others, I wouldn’t have seen the wider agenda this performance symbolizes without your detailed and well-researched article Lara. Thank you!

      Yes…. A correct cross, not inverted, worn by a pop singer? A mistake? But in this context, it had to be upward. Seeing it being destroyed and cheered on by the populace, it goes one step further than the usual inverted symbolism.. Something like “Rejoice in the Evil”, and with the demons in the background, higher up, it just really shows what is controlling everything nowadays in the music industry and the media as well.

    The illustration of the demon present at a black ritual is exactly the association that came to my mind when I first saw Katy’s video — glad you were able to find it. I remember seeing that image (and other similar ones) when reading through the Malleus Maleficarum years ago at uni. When I saw the performance I was actually in disbelief at how forward it is — with these demons revealed as presiding over the ritual/performance it becomes plain that darkness is no longer just an invisible influence in the background, but rather it’s making itself more and more visible, revealing itself and spreading its reach over the masses who are too busy dancing to its tunes and sporting its latest fashions to realize what is actually going on…

    • Lucia September 25, 2014 at 9:16 am - Reply

      Yes Jenny, I was thinking the same – they don’t bother much to hide themselves at all. And indeed, they don’t have to. People either think its just “fun” or are too busy with mundane stuff as you said. The core of this situation is the lack of esoteric knowledge in society – people just simply don’t believe that Hell or lower dimensions are real. I wonder what else they have to see to acknowledge what’s going on and how much it affects them personally. I think this article ties closely to this one:

      • Aleksandr September 26, 2014 at 8:15 am - Reply

        Hi Lucia, I was wandering also about how open the black ritual is now, and why they do it. And it seems like it’s now so common/accepted/ or just ignored in society that they can do it openly. It’s a tragic state how common the dark side of esotericism is and that the white is almost completely out of the picture now. I think it’s our job to show the qualities of white esotericism in the world, and I think that when we do it on an individual level it has an impact nonetheless.

          Someone I read once suggested they have to make their plans public in some way, and if there is no opposition to stop them then they take it as consent to go ahead and do it, and get a sense of power from announcing it but no one realising or stopping them. If that is all true and even regardless, how important is awareness, discernment and courage to speak out lest evil is left to prevail?

          • Lucia September 27, 2014 at 1:12 pm

            Yes, this is horrendous David. I often wonder how strong the opposition must be though, as the laws are often being passed nowadays even after the opposition. Despite everything, I do see many people realizing what’s going on, in various areas of public life (people openly talking about Bilderbergs, the forums being set up for parents to protect their kids against evil trying to influence their kids, etc). I guess we just need numbers, more and more people refusing these twisted things.

          • Patrick S. October 23, 2014 at 11:46 am

            What happens if we start protesting the public performances? Just like the Occupy movement: Occupy Your Stereo. Upside-down headphones with a chain-link headband could form the logo. I don’t live anywhere near the public performances, but I’ll see what I can do.

            Even if 95% of the people laugh at any given protest, as long as some of the signs contain a legible word likely to be googled by 5% of the TV/Youtube watchers, then it would at least help expand our reach.

            Think about it: The purpose of televising this dreck is to provide a non-negotiable information stream coming out of our TVs that we can’t argue with. The purpose is to convince us that blatant black magic performances are a done deal, but I don’t think it’s necessarily true at all. I think the f-heads organizing this travesty of a**holism are sitting around in meetings, looking nervously at each other, wondering what to do if people start showing up and protesting. They have no idea what to do. Their entire game plan revolves around our complacency, doesn’t it? We are still allowed to peacefully assemble: The entertainment industry doesn’t control the military and police.


          • Lara Atwood October 24, 2014 at 2:10 pm

            Interesting you suggest this Patrick, because I had wondered why more people aren’t speaking up and doing more about this publically and I think that speaking out is really needed.

            There was one female singer who walked out of the Grammys in protest due to this performance, but that was about it.

            It’s hard because a lot of people actually really enjoy these kinds of performances, and the song Dark Horse has around 600 million (that’s right, half a billion) views on YouTube.

            It seems that people not only need educating, but they really need an alternative; that is, they need equally catchy pop music that is instead imbued with things that are the opposite of darkness. So some kind of music of light that can go viral would be a great way to protest in my opinion, since that wish for modern popular music is always going to be there, it is just who supplies it.

            Another problem is this idea that things of light are boring and sanitized, but they are not – they are awesome, powerful, adventure packed, first hand life-changing amazing, full of drama with the greatest battles against darkness ever known, and there is no reason why there couldn’t be music that conveys this.

          • Olga October 24, 2014 at 7:14 pm

            I do agree something should be done to counter all this recent dark music in the music industry…

            There are some people speaking out, like a group called Joy Camp in a comedic fashion with their Grammy Awards video which shows how much of the music these days has an evil agenda AND how its all controlled by a few media corporations that control what we see. I couldn’t find the original video anymore (which had a lot of views, maybe 50 000 +) , but here is a clip & interview of it:

            I think a big problem for music of light, goodness and meaning to get out is that there is not a lot of finance to support it. There’s a lot of good music out there that just doesn’t reach the masses, because the spectacles of the Grammy’s attempt to control what is seen and shown. A censorship of some kind if you ask me.

            I wonder how we could draw attention towards a network of positive music, that could go viral? At the moment there’s a lot of attention on the bad, but could there be a collection of the good so that its easily accessible too and prove that there is an audience for it? I am sure there is an audience for it.

    Interesting analysis Lara. Now that you mention it and looking more closely at it, it does appear like she’s celebrating the persecution and death of those martyrs of the past being sacrificed. How deeply horrible.

    Like Daniel mentioned it’s interesting, or ridiculous rather, how some illuminati pop stars sometimes claim their songs are about romance, and perhaps the lyrics could be interpreted like that. But when you look at it more objectively it’s clearly just promotion of dark themes.
    Instead of Love, it’s merely lust and drama. Instead of harmonious visuals it’s just chaotic ‘gaga’ thrown at you. Instead of promoting good values it’s all about selfishness, materialism and nonsense. Instead of music of beauty, it’s over-exaggerated tunes which attack the emotional energy.
    And if you add all those dark opposites together you’ve got yourself a 21st century pop song.

    The original video clip of this song is perhaps also worth looking at (for analytical purposes). Basically everything sacred about Egypt is completely trashed. It’s very off-putting to even look at to be honest. Her blaspheming Egyptian gods by nakedly singing her dark tunes in front of them. A lot can be said about it, but perhaps the worst thing is that on youtube it has 600.000.000 views. Over half a billion…..

    Similar to what Justin mentioned. It’s sad how people have been implanted with the mindset that anything spiritual is strange and even a possible danger to society, while stuff like this performance is applauded. It’s a bit hard to believe sometimes that this is actually happening, that this is the world I’m living in right now.

    I like the last paragraph. It would be more than wonderful to have a new hope, a return of the Jedi in the world. But like some have mentioned before I’m not expecting it on a big scale, rather I’ll do my best to attain it within. Thank you for this article Lara.

    Thank you Lara for breaking down these symbols. I wouldn’t have known what is really going on here without your explanation. Watching the video I can see that is all well organized and it seems that those who have put it up know exactly what they are doing. Unfortunately many of us don’t and it is so much more horrific because of that. Therefore it is very important to have the understanding of what is actually going on so that these events are exposed for what they really stand for.

    Thanks Lara for the breakdown on this. I remember reading about this shortly after it aired and even recall many people posting their shock via twitter about how dark the whole thing had been. But yet so much gets accepted in the context of creative liberty.

    The deeper symbolism you’ve explained makes it all even more disturbing, thanks for your insight. The message the dark is sending through this to all those who seek the path has also been a beneficial reflection for me. Thanks so much.

    This point below has prompted a lot of reflection for me:
    “The destruction of the warriors and workers of light is a moment of supreme pleasure for evil”

    It put into perspective how dark it is to get pleasure out of anyone else’s defeat or suffering, and what is at the root of that.

    This also helped me to understand something from the Mahabharat better. During the great war, some who were good had to fight on the side of darkness. This article helped me to see some things that they were illustrating.

    For example, most who were in that position seemed to fight in accordance with their duty at the time, but without indulging in pleasure from the suffering or humiliation of those on the side of truth.

        Hi Michelle,

        Sure, I got the impression that this distinction between that which creates these situations in a person’s life, as part of the spiritual path, and this other element that comes in and feeds off the person’s suffering in various ways is important.

        It also reminded me of the distinction between the elders (the good) who essentially allowed the war to take place and the faction that wanted war and derived pleasure from humiliating the Pandavas, etc…I felt like maybe these roles illustrated that distinction.

It gathers more and more shape even in its chaos whilst opposition is fragmented and lacking the unity needed to resist.

I hadn’t really paid much attention to Katy Perry before apart from knowing she is a big pop star, and learning the real meaning behind what she is doing is shocking, especially because her celebrity makes her hugely influential.

    With hundreds of millions of people seeing and being influenced by this sort of thing just reinforces how urgent it is to bring to light what’s really behind the smoke and mirrors. Thanks very much for sharing your insights here.

    Thank you Lara for uncovering the meaning behind the symbolism used in this extremely offensive performance, the role sacrifice plays in rituals and for revealing the truth about the noble Knights Templar. I recently came across a comparable and equally disturbing music video titled Judas by another popular singer. It appears as though the entertainment industry and the agents behind them will stop at nothing to produce more obscene performances to the unassuming masses, especially to a much younger and impressionable audience. Your message about sacrificing things of darkness in order to gain light reminded me so much of the Prayer of St. Francis (Make Me An Instrument Of Your Peace).

    Like others have said, this performance is just plain disturbing at face value, but extremely disturbing when the symbolism is broken down. Thanks for breaking this all down and bringing more awareness to this issue. Like others, I didn’t really know much about this performance. There seems to be a clear message being sent by the producers of this performance, which is really disturbing on many levels. Becoming aware of this blatant message of darkness has also given me more conviction to work harder internally and externally to fight against darkness and to fight for the light and in whatever ways I can.

    It’s funny how different the performance is to the video clip for this song. For those that don’t know, the music clip is basically the usual illuminati fare, with the clip set in ancient egypt, complete with huge anubis statue (actually quite impressive looking) and a lot of eye of horus/all seeing eye references.

    They really turn up the darkness though for the music awards. It’s funny when you’re paying attention how different the supposed lyrics and message of the song is different to the “true” message.

    Recently I saw a song by an artist called Miguel called “Adorn”, the song itself is typical love song kinda lyrics, but at the start of the video he says “Hello, I am your subconcious, don’t be afraid I am yours and yours alone. I am the projector and you the projection, and I am always supreme” (this is only present in the video version), these words are a clear reference to the darkside’s veneration of the ego, even saying it is supreme than the actual person. I wonder though how many people would actually realize what those words mean and just bop along to the catchy tune. To me it was so blatant, but the general public have no idea about those things so they think it is just random quirkiness from the music industry.

    So much evil in the history of humanity, yet it’s so unbelievable that it’s still very real today. And to know that demonic entities have always been behind it, is quite disturbing.

    What sad moments in time it was for our good men and women to be burnt alive as heretics, and on false charges.

    Destroying things of darkness and replacing it with the light is so essential. Giving up hatred to have Love is the only way forward. All we need is to follow the Jedi of Love.

    This to me is a good example of the “darkness” felt when symbols are perverted. I got goosebumps all over my skin. The “Dark Horse” in itself is a deep metaphor to the lower emotions and should be a red flag in itself. I felt massive wave of control through subduction which is the lust and by the end of it all I wanted to shower and throw up. This is not even good art, or creativity.

    For her to say that her song was a product of a the movie the Craft reinforces how blindly we can be to perception of things. (sleep) The one thing left out of the movie is the fight between a light witch (1) and several dark witches and how the light witch preservers, gets to keep her powers because of her connection to her Divine and her deceased birth mother, and that is obvious but is not mentioned unless one looks for it. We only see what we want to see. That is so sad! Maybe I understand you quote much deeper than I realized. Let us see only the sun. <3

    The video clip of this song have the same mentality. Showing symbols so open and using them like that, looks like a clear promotion project to me. Where they connect spiritual symbols with dark and illuminati’s references and introduce a new fashion to people.
    On the other hand watching videos which expose these shows looks that the diverted propaganda about the symbols is successful since they also refer to them as illuminati’s symbols.
    Looks like there is a great luck of anti-propaganda and people’s interest for such things. Which make this site really valuable.
    I wish and hope there are enough Jedi knights out there to defend the light.

    I saw this performance earlier in the year and could not believe what I was seeing either. I got the sense when I first watched it that it was a complete mockery of people trying to do a spiritual work but I didn’t make the connection to the Templars and the other historic mystics who were persecuted, but as you’ve laid it out I am completely shocked at such a horrific message this network of evil is sending across.

      Hi Vida,

      Yes, although there is an overload of dark occult symbology in the entertainment industry, this one stood out as really important to expose because it is such a direct statement.

      I hope it will make some people realize that esoteric things are not a joke, and are not evil; that they have real power and implications, which is why they are under such a direct attack.

      The tendency is for people to see esotericism as all dark. Therefore, by ridiculing it, they fall in line with the very agenda of those who use it for evil purposes and ignore the very thing that would allow them to provide an effective response to evil.

      • Vida September 27, 2014 at 3:51 am - Reply

        Yeah, I’ve really been seeing examples of this confusion about esotericism being dark popping up all over the place more recently.

        I’ve especially noticed it within a lot of the movies directed at children. As I have a 5 year old, we have a movie night now and again and over and over I am left disheartened at what kids (and adults too) are being exposed to without really knowing what the effects are.

        It feels like these movies contain a lot of confusing subliminal messages, as well as a complete destruction of spiritual values (glorifying evil) and I’ve even seen sacred symbols and sites being muddled up with evil, satanism and dark magic.

        It seems like unless you see the underlying agenda, it’s really difficult to separate what’s real esoteric knowledge or symbols, and what’s the real darkness.

    Someone made me aware of this dark performance a while ago and it is plain to see it is deliberately dark but I had not worked out all the symbolism in there so thanks very much for explaining all that here Lara.

    It is very disturbing that there is this agenda in the world to crush true spirituality and that it has such dominance, power and influence to the point that it is in a position in society to produce such a performance to such a wide audience, let alone all the other terrible things going on in the world that are part of the same agenda. And this is not the only public event of recent times to have such dark undertones, for example the London Olympics ceremonies in 2012. Recently the Georgia Guidestones had a new stone added to it with the date 2014 on it.

    The current situation in the world unfortunately seems to show that darkness is greater than the light at this time, but, if it is always darkest just before the dawn, therein lies the hope for me along with there being any Jedi and apprentices of the light out there whom I’d gladly fight alongside with and, after recent reflection, put everything else aside to help tip the balance back to the resurrection of the light.

    This is so repulsive. What happened to melodies like the Carpenters from the 70’s? Maybe I’m getting too old and soppy.
    Witches and demons threatening to tear your heart out and eat it, like a real life psychopathic serial killer (actually mentioned in the lyrics), is far from entertainment, unless people have been previously conditioned to such rubbish. This performance is an extreme threat, hidden in a cloak of ‘dolly simpleton’ naivety. The endless performances promoting drugs, sacrifice, magic, drinking fresh blood… surely someone would question it, or maybe the threat is felt so intensely, people again are paralyzed by fear?

    These performances are really nothing more than the finale and culmination of a century of psychological warfare. Most people think psywar was only employed by nasty Russians and all the other ‘enemies’. The last world war was full of it, and it continued on, the victors forcing everyone to believe they were the ‘good’ side and now we have this? Hmm. We don’t even have freedom to doubt, doubt has literally been criminalized.

      The music industry has certainly spiraled downwards. Even recalling the flavor of songs from the 40′,50’s and 60’s the music today by contrast is being strangled of all its goodness.

      Its hard to imagine there was no agenda involved.

      Did they take us by surprise? Or did they use the theme of love from the 60’s against us and gradually perverse it until all you see now is the perversity. Evil intelligence? Previously demons were disguised, cloaked and hidden, and now they are coming into the open arms of the masses.

        Pop music was still somewhat joyful and uplifting even throughout the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. IMO the big shift happens in 00’s. R’n’b becomes the main stream and merges with hip hop, promoting very openly drugs consumption, careless sex, and violence. Things have been getting worse since then and in 10’s it turned into what we have now, complete rubbish designed to create a mental mess in the mind (just look at any Lady’s Gaga video). There are of course other music genres these days half-pop which are good and which do not get such attention.

      Although maybe its worse now, I don’t think it was ever good, the lense of nostalgia makes us see things a little rosier sometimes I think. The old “back in my day” phenomenon. Just think, is 50 years from now the old-timers will be saying “back in my day we had REAL music, like Justin Bieber and One Direction”. Lol god help us.

        Good point. I have often thought of 60s music as being much better than today’s (arguably in many ways it is), but compare any music from the past 100 years to that of the best classical, baroque, renaissance, and ancient music, and you’re hearing completely different things.

        Reading Plato and ancient Chinese writers a while ago I was surprised to learn they complained of “new” music as being debase and without morals. That was 2000+ years ago.

        • Karim November 19, 2014 at 1:14 pm - Reply

          I had also read some of those writings, and this is one nice quote I came across yesterday:

          “If one should desire to know whether a kingdom is well governed, if its morals are good or bad, the quality of its music will furnish the answer.” Confucius

          What would those philosophers’ reaction be if they were to listen to present day pop music?….
          I thought for a second if there was music that’s even further removed from spiritual vibrations. And I guess at the fringes there certainly is (although from there it often makes it way to popular main stream music.)

 This is one example. And there are many others like some modern death metal, which seem just “straight out of hell” so to speak and of which I won’t post a link. It seems extreme, but I would not be surprised (unfortunately) if music of this level would be mainstream in 20/30 years.

          Even when at first, naturally, there is an inner repellence towards such vibrations (‘I don’t like that song’), gradually by being overloaded with it you can get accustomed to it and even want to feel the horrible feelings that such music brings.

          What music you choose to listen to says a lot about who you are. The lack of presence of more spiritual tunes in main stream music, and the spiraling down of the level of music are certainly not beneficial.

    What an evil performance.

    Thanks for your thorough analysis revealing the dark hidden messages being expressed as “entertainment”. Although this performance is obviously dark and creepy, you really show it goes a lot deeper than most people realise. I doubt Katy Perry really knows what she is doing (she is probably just a puppet), but whoever choreographed this performance obviously does.

    Unfortunately, even those with good intentions who see there is something wrong here often cannot distinguish between esotericism of light and that of darkness, and tend to lump them both together when looking at these issues, which only creates more confusion and serves to demonise the light side of esotericism. I hope articles like this help to clear up these misconceptions and misunderstandings.

    • Karim September 25, 2014 at 8:35 am - Reply

      Well formulated Matthew, and Lara also mentioned it in a post. I also observed this unfortunate thing.
      Someone can shed light and expose dark events that are happening in a surprisingly great way with intuition, common sense and research. But to write about deeper esoteric things should be done according to one’s own experience and it carries a responsibility in my opinion.
      If it’s written about only from a belief, it’s simply guesswork and bound to be incorrect and misleading. And something like mixing the good esoteric and bad together will only add confusion, or enforce held belief systems. Instead of giving the tools that enable change and the means to counter darkness.

    Wow and Wow again – cannot help but quote others here that feel the same way.
    I don’t usually know when these big Music and TV awards are on and so am not usually aware of these things, reason for which I am really grateful that this website exists! Thanks very much for taking the time to carefully break the whole performance down and bring to light what is really going on. By simply watching the video you can clearly see that there is more than just trashy modern music going on here; everything is so dark and blatantly so.
    It does make a chill run down your spine when you think at how obvious the symbols and messages are in this video, and your article really helps to see this very clearly.
    I am very grateful that you offer a glimmer of hope as well as it is very easy to become despondent with this kind of expression of darkness so open for all to see.
    This article also highlight the importance of continuing to support this and other websites, publications, etc., that strive to bring the light to this world and that show that what we are being ‘fed’ by the mainstream isn’t the whole truth.
    Thank you!

    It is astonishing how badly music has degenerated since Beethoven’s last symphony. Perhaps even more astonishing is the fact that hypnotised crowd happily cheers and dances along such unpleasant performances.

    As Geraldine mentioned, what you wrote about those of light sacrificing harmful habits and evil sacrificing what’s of light made me reflect on quality of my choices any given day.

    Thanks a lot for breaking that down Lara, I’ve read about this before but it’s great to get a deeper understanding of the esoteric side of it, rather than it just being creepy and demonic looking.

    It looks like when she’s first singing in the crystal ball she does a demon horns hand sign as well.

    Apparently this grammy awards ceremony was also used to promote the movie Maleficent, which seems to be trying to popularise the villain (the self-proclaimed mistress of all evil) from the 1959 Disney movie Sleeping Beauty by inverting the storyline, making her the hero and making the forces of light out to be silly and useless.

    This article gives me a lot to reflect on about how I use my time and how best I can try and be part of the warriors of light!

    Reading comments around the web it seems half the people disliked this performance, and the other half actually liked it for whatever reason, but I’m sure almost none recognise all the intricate symbology involved.

    Who creates these things? They obviously know what they’re doing.

    • ConsciousCreation September 23, 2014 at 6:28 pm - Reply

      That is my thought Jon, the singer obviously doesn’t have time to approve or disapprove all that is going on around her therefore just like Rihanna took a hit with her career when she came out with the Umbrealla video we will have to sit back and see if Katy Parry suffers the same thing. They become puppets to the system it appears. Katy’s original work was really light fun with bright colors and just like egos she allowed the sings to occur in her life.

    • Jordan September 24, 2014 at 2:18 am - Reply

      Yeah, watching that I get the sense she didn’t even know what she was up to in it. What a horrible message that’s being spread through it though, and to think of all her fans and casual watchers who now think it’s “cool” or whatever to do things like that.

      Also, how is it that doing such an extravagent and outright evil performance, costumes and all, is somehow considered just fine and widely approved, but a simple ceremony to celebrate the positive side of spirituality, say the solstice or equinox, is so ridiculed and looked down at by most in the mainstream?

    Votre lucidité est extraordinaire Lara. J’applaudis la profondeur de votre message. Merci de nous partager votre perception. C’est vraiment un article intéressant.

    Thanks for writing this article Lara.

    It is truly sad that the young minds watching these kinds of scenes are being led, like the pied piper, away from gnostic truths by this dastardly wicked display of materialism and evangelism of dark forces.

    I can only hope that parents become increasingly aware of the negative influences modern media is having on their children, and begin to ‘turn off’ access to such rubbish.

    Nasty agenda indeed. Thank you Lara for putting it all into a detailed perspective. Despite everything, I still think even these evil forces and beings must also be subjected to the higher laws, and so there must be a way to counteract them for a person (or a group or persons) who know the right way to act.

  55. Alex September 22, 2014 at 4:03 pm - Reply

    Thank you Lara for this explanation. It is shocking to say the least what has happened there. I am especially disturbed that these ceremonies are being performed in front of an unsuspecting public. Do you have any idea why that is? or how it impacts those people?

    In general I really emphasize with what is going on. It seems like a minority is imposing their will on unsuspecting people, and it’s hard to see what can be done about it. I see many people trying to do things to help the situation – choosing one area or another, or living a life that is outside of what is happenening. I see there is a help from them, but it seems so little that I can’t understand how it can have any substantial impact. I think the esoteric part is too weak in general, or there are too few people.

    What you said about the Jedi sticks with me. The world could use Jedi, and I hope it is still possible!

    Thanks for the clarity of your explanation of this “spectacle” masking evil. This is not the first time I have seen dark ceremonies at music awards, it appears that music and popular culture are being used to normalise evil to the general public and make them complicit in such events.

    Just this evening I saw 5 minutes of a TV show Big Brother in which a sorcerers apprentice was predicted as the winner and the past winner was lauded as a master of the black arts, to the applause of the live audience in the TV studio. It appears an unsuspecting public are being dragged deeper and deeper into darkness and spiritual sleep.

    In your exposing and explaining the hidden symbology of these black ceremonies I find my resolve strengthened to fight for goodness and join the Jedi in a spiritual quest for the light. I would like to thank you and your husband for all you do to help all of us awaken.

      I see the same thing Cliff, it’s like putting a lobster into the water and then slowly turning up the heat, until the water is boiling so we don’t even notice that we are being shown pure evil rituals in front of our eyes and can somehow think that’s entertainment.

    From any neutral and unbiased perspective, this is just horrific. Even if you had no knowledge of anything higher-dimensional, why on earth would these gruesomely satanic scenes and symbols of black magic be impressed upon the millions of people watching? Not just in this presentation but in so many others across the music industry.

    It’s a testament to how powerful the media and entertainment industry is at creating and enforcing social norms that most people think nothing of these performances — they watch them for spectacle and enjoy them.

    (Of course if you’d like to celebrate the Equinox with a sacred bonfire, then you’re someone “weird” and it makes people uncomfortable.)

    There’s no logic, rhyme, or reason to any of it — unless of course you see it in context of this dark agenda that is poisoning the psyche of so many people against spirituality.

    I really appreciate you breaking down the symbols in this video, as I had seen it before and not realized the different levels that were playing out. The use of the templars as a universal symbols of the warriors of light and the symbolic enactment of future persecution is awful.

    Wow. Thanks for breaking the hidden meanings of this event down Lara. I didn’t know this performance had happened, but am sadly not suprised.
    I remember being really shocked at the closing act of the London Olympics for it’s similar feel. What’s heartbreaking is that people seem so numbed by constant exposure to the media, they must just not feel it when something delves into this dark realms, dragging their emotions down with them too. It’s all ‘just entertainment’ now.
    It really is so awful to sense that what is pure and sacred in life and on this Earth is now the subject of mockery and persecution to such an overwhelming extent. I hope that those struggling to stay with the light, change themselves to merge with it and serve it, will keep going, and that a new dawn is possible.

    wow.. Lara, just wow. Thanks for taking the time to write, explain and expose this darkness for what it is.. If I had not met with dark minions in the Astral or saw some dark stuff while out of the body, it could almost be unreal. But it is very real.. And I wholeheatedly back up what you are saying.

    Even from a point of view of not havind had OBEs or seen demons in the Astral, it is clear that this show was done for pure evil. People may be wondering “what was that all about? How could such horrible scenery be presented at a music award, it belongs to a horror movie!”. Most people still know what goodness is and what evil is. There was definitely nothing good there..

    Yet, you also give me hope, some hope that there is a way for any of us to fight back against this darkness, to defend the forces of the light from the forces of evil, within ourselves and in the world.

    I also very much appreciated your comment on sacrifice, what it means for the forces of good versus what it means for the forces of darkness. It gives much to reflect on and be used for understanding certain behavior/habits we each may have that could easily be replaced by healthier, and better ones..

    • Michelle September 24, 2014 at 3:51 pm - Reply

      I agree Geraldine, this article gave me hope as well. I really appreciated the ending to such a sinister topic… remembering that one Jedi can make the difference. I need to reflect on that. Even while it gives me hope, I find it hard to believe… this lack of belief leads me to inactivity, almost paralysis. Hope is so important. It also reminds me of the Hunger Games, where the most dangerous threat to the Capital was hope.
