The Occult Symbolism of the 2012 Olympics Opening and Closing Ceremonies
Watched by almost a billion viewers across all five continents, the 2012 Olympic ceremonies were, for a few hours, the focal point of the world. As is the case for most high-profile media events, the world elite’s messages, symbols, and agenda were part of the show. We’ll look at the occult symbolism of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics.
Olympic ceremonies are often among the most watched TV events on the planet. They are an exceptional chance for the host countries to showcase their greatness through a grandiose, elaborate and massive show. The 2012 London Olympics were no exception as England’s history, culture and accomplishments were thoroughly celebrated and applauded. Some moments were grand, others were funny; some were dark and even disturbing. Other moments were highly symbolic, reflecting the agenda of the occult elite. Given that London is one of the power capitals of the world, it would have been more surprising if the symbolism and philosophy of the global elite had not been infused throughout the ceremonies.
Of course, not everything was symbolic in that sense and not everything was in-your-face, but over the course of the several hours that the ceremonies lasted, a good deal of symbolism was communicated to billion of viewers around the world. Let’s look at the most symbolic moments of the 2012 London Olympics.
The ceremonies were designed and coordinated by Danny Boyle, director of the movies Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire. Entitled Isles of Wonder, the opening ceremony focused on the history of England and the actors that influenced it. The journey began in ancient and mythical England then traveled through the industrial revolution, ending in modern times. The story was told using specific symbols and references that recall the occult side of Great Britain.
Green and Pleasant Land
The show begins in pastoral England, complete with farmers and cricket players. There are also many symbols alluding to its ancient mystical lore. The focal point of the show is a hill that is said to have magical properties: Glastonbury Tor.
Glastonbury Tor is one of the oldest sacred sites in England. Believed to be at the intersection of powerful ley lines, the Tor is related to many mystical stories and legends. For instance, it is thought to be Avalon from the legend of King Arthur and his 12 knights, a story that is esoterically associated with the sun and the twelve signs of the zodiac. Another legend claims that Joseph of Arimathea, the great uncle of Jesus Christ who was a tin merchant, brought young Jesus on a trip to Glastonbury. He later came back to the site and threw the chalice used by Jesus during the last supper (the fabled Holy Grail) in Chalice Well – an area of Glastonbury said to have magical powers. Archeologists have also discovered that the construction of the Glastonbury abbey involved sacred geometry “known by the builders of Egyptian pyramids” and passed down through societies of stonemasons (the originators of modern Freemasonry).
The presence of Glastonbury Tor in the Olympic stadium provides a definitively mystical and esoteric undertone to the opening ceremonies.
While countrymen work the land and run around maypoles (which incidentally bear a cosmic and phallic occult meaning), a young boy in the crowd stands up and sings part of a classical English hymn, William Blake’s Jerusalem.
William Blake is often described as a “visionary” whose artistic works were heavily inspired by Druidism, Gnosticism, and Freemasonry (his depiction of the “Grand Geometrician” holding a Masonic compass is above the Rockefeller Center in New York). While some of his creations had Christian connotations, they were often told from a Gnostic and esoteric point of view. Jerusalem refers to the apocryphal story described above of Jesus visiting the “green and pleasant land” of Glastonbury with his great-uncle, Joseph of Arimathea.
And did those feet in ancient timeWalk upon England’s mountains green?And was the holy Lamb of GodOn England’s pleasant pastures seen?And did the Countenance DivineShine forth upon our clouded hills?And was Jerusalem builded hereAmong these dark Satanic Mills?
The Industrial Revolution
After the singing of the hymns, men in top hats, enter England’s Green and Pleasant land and bring about important change.
The top-hat guys are lead by civil engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who stands at the base of the Tor and give a speech quoting Shakespeare’s The Tempest. The oak tree then rises from the ground and hundreds of workers emerge from under the Tor and begin transforming England’s landscape.
At this point, there are a few facts that deserve to be pointed out. First, the legend of King Arthur stipulates that the top of the Tor provided entrance to Annwn, the ancient word for the Underworld. Second, the official name of the segment about the industrial revolution is Pandemonium, which is the name of the capital of Hell in Milton’s classical work Paradise Lost. These clues indicate that London did not become New Jerusalem (a metaphor for heaven) as stated by Blake’s hymn, but literally hell on earth. And all of this pandemonium was brought about by a handful of elite men who got thousands of workers apparently emerge from the underworld and build industrial England.
It is now an established fact that the bringing down of monarchies and the push for industrial revolution during the 18th century was heavily influenced by Secret Societies such as the Grand Orient Freemasons and the Bavarian Illuminati, who called for an “unshackling of science” and a “new age of Reason”. The men in top hats coordinating the transformation can, therefore, be associated with the secretive groups that historically engendered a new economic, political and social system during the 18th Century.
Leave the Kids Alone
The next important sequence of the ceremony paid tribute to the National Health Service (NHS) and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). The set combined sick kids on hospital beds with characters from English children’s literature and had a very strange and dark undertone from the start, when it began with the theme from The Exorcist, which is, in case you don’t know, a movie about a child possessed by the Devil. Odd choice.
The sequence begins with children on hospital beds who get put to sleep by nurses. Then J.K. Rowling appears and reads a quote from Peter Pan alluding to Neverland, which becomes real in the “two minutes before you go to sleep”. I couldn’t say if that was done on purpose, but many elements of this set, mostly the mix of vulnerable children in a hospital with fairy tales and the concept of blurring the lines between reality and fiction, are all associated with mind control programming. Like the Wizard of Oz and Alice of Wonderland, the story of Peter Pan is heavily used in mind control programming as victims are told to escape to “Neverland” while inducing dissociation from reality.
After J.K. Rowling’s appearance, hordes of ghouls and villains from English literature enter the stage, running after the children and scaring the crap out of them.
While the evil characters run after the children, the nurses are completely immobile and powerless as if declaring “Health workers can do nothing when the elite’s mind control is happening behind closed doors”.
Luckily, a whole bunch of Mary Poppins fly down and shoo away the scary characters. Then, a rather creepy giant baby appears on stage.
The odd combination of children in a hospital and fairy tales might have been a clever way to combine two important aspects of British culture. It can also be a sick way of referring to Monarch mind control. On that note, let’s bring out Mr. Bean!
Abide With Me
Right before the Parade of Nations, the ceremony presented a dark segment that confused and disturbed more than a few viewers. Supposedly dedicated to victims of the 7/7 London Bombings, it had the feel of a dark ritual. Also, once again, we see an innocent child being preyed upon by dark forces. Despite the fact that the Christian hymn Abide With Me was playing in the background, the performance had an eerie feel, as if we were witnessing some kind of occult child sacrifice.
The set begins with a group of performers feverishly dancing under a giant orange ball resembling the sun orb. Then a young boy appears, looking somewhat lost and confused. One of the dancers approach the boy and looks to take something precious from him.
Once the dancer takes the child’s soul, he taunts him with it and takes it away from him. The boy attempts to take it back but it is no use, he cannot do it. Apparently drained and resigned, the boy embraces the dancer who stole his soul.
At the end of the set, the child is at the center of the dancers and raises his hands in the air as if saying “I am reborn with the dark side”. On that creepy, disturbing note, let’s bring out the athletes!
Nations and Flames
As it is always the case, the Parade of Nations is done in a very orderly manner, with each country entering the stadium separately, in alphabetical order (we’ll see how it contrasts with the closing ceremony). Each flag was then placed at the feet of the Tor and the magical oak tree.
Once that was accomplished, the ceremony then focused on the almighty torch and the “fire that never dies”. The occult symbolism behind the torchbearer carrying the Olympic flame was discussed in my article London 2012: The Olympic torch relay and Prometheus so I won’t dwell on that aspect, though it is very significant.
The show ended with the lighting of the Olympic cauldron which was composed of petals representing each nation present during the Olympics.
Combined with the ever-present pyramidal structures around the Stadium, the event became one big tribute to the Illuminati elite. Two weeks later, the closing ceremony took the Illuminati symbolism to another level.
The Closing Ceremony
Contrary to the opening ceremony that reflected on the past, the closing ceremony looked towards the future … as envisioned by the elite. Not unlike the opening ceremony, it featured a whole lot of British music and I am pretty sure that record companies paid top dollar to have their artists perform on this unique world stage. I’ll skip the music performances and focus on the core message of the closing ceremony: Celebrating the Illuminati’s New World Order.
Contrarily to the opening ceremony, the closing ceremony was all about nations blending together into one giant global community – one of the goals of the New World Order. While, at the beginning of the games, athletes entered the stadium behind their national flag and a banner bearing the name of their countries, all of that was gone at the closing ceremony. Everyone was mixed together.
We then witnessed a weird segment.
Musical performances began with a specific song, John Lennon’s Imagine, and a specific verse from it – which was considered, by some observers, to be somewhat out of place in the context of the Olympic ceremony.
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace
You, you may say
I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world
In the context of the Olympics, where people come from all countries and all religions, this verse was a little out of place. More importantly, no countries, no religions, no possessions and “a world as one” is a good way to describe the global system the elite is trying to create with the New World Order. Was Lennon envisioning a secretive group of politicians and bankers creating his perfect world? Probably not. But when you get killed by an MK-Ultra patsy, the elite can pretty do what it wants with your work and image.
Let’s Worship Fire for, Like, a Half an Hour
After a bunch of performances (featuring a whole lot of Jessie J for some reason), the ceremony heavily focused on the Olympic cauldron. Before it is extinguished, it slightly opens up and a fiery phoenix appears above it.
The symbol of the phoenix, the bird that is reborn from its ashes, is extremely important to occult secret societies and, consequently, to the occult elite.
“The phoenix is the most celebrated of all the symbolic creatures fabricated by the ancient Mysteries for the purpose of concealing the great truths of esoteric philosophy. (…) Mediæval Hermetists regarded the phoenix as a symbol of the accomplishment of alchemical transmutation, a process equivalent to human regeneration. The name phoenix was also given to one of the secret alchemical formula. (…) In the Mysteries it was customary to refer to initiates as phoenixes or men who had been born again, for just as physical birth gives man consciousness in the physical world, so the neophyte, after nine degrees in the womb of the Mysteries, was born into a consciousness of the Spiritual world. This is the mystery of initiation to which Christ referred when he said, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John iii. 3). The phoenix is a fitting symbol of this spiritual truth.”
– Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages
While the phoenix represents spiritual rebirth on an individual level, it can also represent the rebirth of the entire world from its ashes – as a New World Order.
Right after the apparition of the phoenix above the Olympic cauldron, the boy band Take That performed a song with a rather symbolic title, considering the context: Rule The World.
After the song, a bunch of ballet dancers dressed as phoenixes hopped around, as if revering and giving tribute to the fiery bird above them.
At midnight, the Olympic cauldron and the petals representing each country are slowly extinguished, but the phoenix, representing the occult elite and the New World Order, stays lit above it. In other words, as the nations of the world slowly disappear, a New World Order will emerge. On that note, let’s listen to The Who!
Olympic Ceremonies traditionally showcase the host Nation’s history and culture but also celebrates those behind the games: the occult elite. Since London is a power capital of the world with a rich occult history ranging from the Knight Templars to influential Masonic lodges, and not forgetting prominent occultists advising the royals such as John Dee and Sir Francis Bacon, is it surprising to see this aspect of History being referred to in a symbolic matter?
While obviously not everything during Olympic ceremonies related to Illuminati symbolism, there were plenty of elements inserted throughout to get the message across. In the end, the Olympic games, like many other media events, turned into a worldwide mega ritual celebrating the goals and the symbolism of the world elite. On that note, let’s bring out the Spice Girls!
