Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams” video is viewed by most people as being merely “sexy” or “fashion” but not many get its occult meaning. Hidden in the symbolism of the video and in the song’s lyrics are references to dark themes: possession and mind control.
If you read my other article on Beyonce called “Beyonce to Sasha Fierce – Occult Symbolic Rebirth“, you’re already aware of the dark symbolism surrounding Sasha Fierce. “Sweet Dreams” is a perfect continuation of the dark themes surrounding Beyonce’s alter-ego: dark occultism, mind control, spirit possession, etc. The lyrics of the song and the imagery of the video have a supernatural and ethereal quality, as Beyonce professes her love for someone or something she calls a “sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare”.
So what is this song about? Love? Yes. Love of her mind controlled state and of her controller. Pretty disturbing. What is mind control? It is a technique developed by the CIA to literally control a subject’s mind (google MK Ultra for more info). “Monarch Programming” uses extreme treatments (such as electroshock) to cause a major trauma in the victim’s psyche. Ron Patton describes the main precepts of “Monarch Programming” here:
Definition and Description
“The name MONARCH is not necessarily defined within the context of royal nobility, but rather refers to the monarch butterfly. When a person is undergoing trauma induced by electroshock, a feeling of light-headedness is evidenced; as if one is floating or fluttering like a butterfly. There is also a symbolic representation pertaining to the transformation or metamorphosis of this beautiful insect: from a caterpillar to a cocoon (dormancy, inactivity ), to a butterfly (new creation) which will return to its point of origin. Such is the migratory pattern that makes this species unique. Occultic symbolism may give additional insight into the true meaning. Psyche is the word for both “soul” and “butterfly” coming from the belief that human souls become butterflies while searching for a new reincarnation. Some ancient mystical groups, such as the Gnostics, saw the butterfly as a symbol of corrupt flesh. The “Angel of Death” (remember Mengele?) in Gnostic art works was portrayed crushing the butterfly. A marionette is a puppet that is attached to strings and is controlled by the puppet master, hence MONARCH programming is also referred to as the “Marionette Syndrome.” “Imperial Conditioning” is another term used, while some mental health therapists know it as “Conditioned Stimulus Response Sequences.” Project MONARCH could be best described as a form of structured dissociation and occultic integration, carried out in order to compartmentalize the mind into multiple personalities within a systematic framework. During this process, a Satanic ritual, usually including Cabalistic mysticism, is performed with the purpose of attaching a particular demon or group of demons to the corresponding alter(s). Of course, most skeptics would view this as simply a means to enhance trauma within the victim, negating any irrational belief that demonic possession actually occurs.”
Alters and Triggers
Another way of examining this convoluted victimization of body and soul is by looking at it as a complex computer program: A file (alter) is created through trauma, repetition and reinforcement. In order to activate (trigger) the file, a specific access code or password (cue or command) is required. The victim/survivor is called a “slave” by the programmer/handler, who in turn is perceived as “master” or “god.” About 75% are female, since they possess a higher tolerance for pain and tend to dissociate easier than males. Subjects are used mainly for cover operations, prostitution and pornography; involvement in the entertainment industry is notable. A former military officer connected to the DIA, told this writer, “In the ‘big picture’ these people [MONARCH victims] are in all walks of life, from the bum on the street to the white-collar guy”. In corroboration, a retired CIA agent vaguely discussed the use of such personnel to be used as “plants” or “chameleons” for the purpose of infiltrating a designated group, gathering information and/or injecting an ulterior agenda. There are an inordinate amount of alters in the victim/survivor with numerous back-up programs, mirrors and shadows. A division of light-side (good) and dark-side (bad) alters are interwoven in the mind and rotate on an axis. One of the main internal structures, (of which their are many) within the system is shaped like a double-helix, consisting of seven levels. Each system has an internal programmer which oversees the “gatekeeper” (demons?) who grant or deny entry into the different rooms. A few of the internal images predominately seen by victims/survivors are trees, the Cabalistic “Tree of Life,” with adjoining root systems, infinity loops, ancient symbols and letters, spider webs, mirrors or glass shattering, masks, castles, mazes, demons/monsters/aliens, sea shells, butterflies, snakes, ribbons, bows, flowers, hour glasses, clocks, robots, chain-of-command diagrams and/or schematics of computer circuitry boards.

OK, this heavy stuff but there are some important points to note which are directly related to “Sweet Dreams”:
- Monarch treatment gives a feeling of “light-headedness as if one is floating”
- It engenders a new creation, an alternate personality
- The victim sees his controller as “god”
- Dark occult rituals are involved in the process
- Symbols relating to Monarch programming involve mirrors, glass shattering, rainbows, robots and more.
I’m guessing that you’re starting to see where I’m going with this. All of these things are represented in Beyonce’s 4-minute video. How much can one honestly attribute to coincidence? The truth is: “Sweet Dreams” is a metaphor for mind control, Monarch Programming to be precise, and Beyonce sings from the point of view of the programmed slave.
“Every night I rush to my bed With hopes that maybe I’ll get a chance to see you When I close my eyes I’m going out of my head Lost in a fairytale, can you hold my hands and be my guide?”
Beyonce is looking forward to “going out of her head” and getting “lost in a fairytale“. She is asking her controller to “hold her hand and be her guide“. The state of a mind-controlled slave is often compared to a fairytale (they are said to be shown movies such as The Wizard of Oz). The controller will be her guide in the treatments.
“Clouds filled with stars cover the skies And I hope it rains, you’re the perfect lullaby What kinda dream is this?”
There is a real sense of a hazy state of mind. Beyonce says to her controller, who is causing in her this mental state, “you’re the perfect lullaby”.
“You could be a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare Either way I don’t wanna wake up from you (Turn the lights on) Sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare Somebody pinch me, your love’s too good to be true (Turn the lights on)”
So this state of mind control can be a sweet dream, which is a blissful state where the boundaries between reality and fiction are blurred. It can also be a nightmare due to the traumatizing treatments, the mental anguish and the fact that being a Monarch slave is probably the worst thing that can happen to anyone. Sweet dream/Beautiful Nightmare also describes the dichotomy between Beyonce and her dark alter-ego Sasha Fierce. As Patton stated in his discussion of mind control:
“A division of light-side (good) and dark-side (bad) alters are interwoven in the mind and rotate on an axis.”
“My guilty pleasure, I ain’t going no where Baby long as you’re here I’ll be floating on air”
“My guilty pleasure” refers to the fact that she knows that this state of synthetic bliss is false and ultimately harmful to her. But as long as her controller is there, she’ll be “floating on air”. This is especially significant when one knows that subjects of Monarch programming get a feeling of light-headeness, as if they’re floating.
“I mention you when I say my prayers I wrap you around all of my thoughts Boy you’re my temporary high”
There is here a mix of the “scientific” mind programming with the occult ritualistic aspect of it. The “controller” is often interchanged with Lucifer and “mind control” can be interchanged with spirit possession. As Ron Patton stated, ancient occult knowledge, rituals, and magick are incorporated in the programming of the subject. The person sees the controller as a god, or Lucifer, who possesses his/her soul and thoughts. Beyonce says she mentions the name of her controller (or Lucifer) when she says her prayers. She wraps her controller around all of her thoughts which is a nice way of saying that the possessor is in control of her thoughts.
“Tattoo your name across my heart so it will remain Not even death can make us part What kind of dream is this?”
She is basically saying that she gave her soul to her controller aka Lucifer. “Not even death can make us part“, conveys an obvious spiritual meaning. The only thing that remains of us after death is our soul. She says that even after death, her soul will still be owned by her possessor. As in all works of art, the lyrics could be interpreted in numerous ways. The video, however, confirms the mind control theme of the song by visually representing the steps, the symbols and even many “triggers” associated with Monarch programming.
So what is the message of the video? Yes, I know Beyonce is “hawt”. Now that we got that out of the way, we can look past her hawtness…There’s way more to that video than hypnotic robot breasts. The video starts with Beyonce sleeping to a creepy lullaby tune. A dove appears and levitates Beyonce from her bed while the lullaby gets increasingly menacing. This scene ends with a scream of terror.
In Christian symbolism, the dove represents the Holy Spirit. There’s, however, nothing “holy” about that scene. The scene is dark, the music is ominous, Beyonce is troubled and she gets lifted in what looks like a feat of black magick. To find the true meaning of that dove, one has to go into its occult meaning.
“Helena Blavatsky, an occultist, Luciferian, magician, Mason, and founder of the Theosophical Society, along with Masonic author Albert Pike, in their writings of this belief, that Lucifer is the holy spirit. Pike, referred to the Holy Ghost, when he wrote, “the body of the Holy Spirit, the universal Agent, [is] the Serpent…”
The Holy Spirit of Occult Orders, the liaison between the earth realm and the heavens, is Lucifer. This is graphically represented on the lamen of the Luciferian fraternity Ordo Templi Orientis.
So in the first scene of the video, we see Lucifer lifting Beyonce from her bed and sending her to a kind of weird heaven. As stated above, the song is at the same time about Lucifer and Beyonce’s mind controller. So the dove also represents the controller making Beyonce feel light-headed from Monarch programming. Beyonce is sent into an “alternate world” with an omnipresent rainbow, a symbol associated with Monarch programming. We often see in the video multiple Beyonce’s colliding into one or the opposite, which represent her alters or minions. If you look closely at the backup dancers in one particular scene, they are literally broken in half, as if they are not activated.
In this symbolic scene, Beyonce is in a mirror room, not knowing who the “real Beyonce” is. This scene refers to the dissociative nature of mind control, not to mention that mirrors are an all-important symbol of Monarch Programming.
She then shatters a mirror and fragments fly all over the place, which represents the fragmentation and compartmentalization of her consciousness, an important prerequisite in order to create a new alternate personality in Monarch programming. Then it happens. The shiny new robot Beyonce, the new programmed alternate personality is born.
What is a robot? It is a machine that is programmed to accomplish specific tasks. This description also applies to a mind-controlled slave. So the video describes the steps of mind control and the metamorphosis of the worm into a Monarch butterfly.
Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams” describes the blissful journey of a mind control subject towards its new persona. Even if that process is insanely painful and nightmarish, the subject is programmed to enjoy it, hence the phrase “either way, I don’t want to wake up from you“. Numerous symbols and mind control triggers are included in the video and, combined with the dissociative lyrics, the song leaves no doubt to those “in the know” of its occult meaning. Why are there allusions to Lucifer and mind control in the video and many others? What’s the purpose of it? Is it supposed to have an effect on the viewers? Are these types of videos mega-rituals acting on the subconscious of music fans? Are they preparing (programming) the new generation to accept those things as a reality? Those are questions I’m still attempting to answer. One thing is for sure: when one realizes that Beyonce’s incredible beauty and talent are used to promote such horrors, the video becomes indeed a “beautiful nightmare”.
