The Magician: Then and Now

The magician looked into the reflecting pool of water.

He spoke words that had not been heard on earth in millennia, “Itha tubacca moya illaca lama saranamuth.”

The pool showed an image of an elderly Norwegian man Sigurd in a nursing home.

Sigurd flipped through his art books for the man had been an artist for most of his life.

The magician lowered his right hand into the reflecting bowl of water.

He chanted again in an unknown tongue.

Then he removed his hand out of the water.

In his hand he clutched a human heart and threw it into a bucket of human hearts.

The elderly Norwegian man Sigurd was found dead in his room in the nursing home.

The cause of death would be ruled heart attack.

The bucket of hearts the Magician would lay at the feet of the idol of an ancient deity.

. . .

An identical idol statue of the same deity the pagan worshipping Vatican Cardinal JM was praying to along with his personal secretary Father Oliver Thomas Wardenclyffe.

Most of the time Cardinal JM and his assistant prayed to Ancient Greek gods but occasionally ancient Egyptian.

Tonight they were praying to a deity that was never worshipped by the ancient Egyptians.

Only feared.

The deity was the female demon Ammit known as the Eater of Hearts and the Devourer of the Dead.

She had the head of a crocodile, the upper torso of a lion and the lower torso of a hippopotamus.

“Amen,” Cardinal JM made the sign of an inverted cross.

Father Wardenclyffe managed to contort and twist his own body into a yogic position that made him resemble the figure of the Baphomet.

. . .

The beautiful and sexy dark eyed raven haired gypsy fortune teller Dulcinea Lucia was in her psychic reading shop on London’s Carnaby Street gazing into her crystal ball.

But the image she saw in her crystal ball was not of the future but of the past.

It was the image of practicing occultic Germanic Thule Society adept Dietrich Eckhart as he lay on his deathbed on the evening of December 26th 1923.

The last words of Eckhart were, “Follow Hitler! He will dance but it is I who have called the tune!”.

In a clock shop somewhere in London, an old clock that had a picture of Sir Winston Churchill on it suddenly stopped ticking.

In a museum in Berlin, a clock that had stopped ticking in April 1945 suddenly sprang to life again.

And somewhere on the globe, a high-flying falcon raised an eerie cry.

    I always thought that the Thule Society was a Nazi invention. I had no idea it predated them.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, the Thule Society was founded in 1918 and the German Workers’ Party was founded in 1919 and then its successor party the German National Socialist Workers’ Party (of which Hitler was to become the leader) was founded in 1920.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,


      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes and then of course in a book I noticed in a used book store in the small town of Camrose, Alberta, Canada many years ago was a collection of the personal letters of Albert Pike (the man who was the head of Scottish Rite Freemasonry in the U.S. back in the late 19th Century) and as I was flipping through the book, I noticed Pike talking about the magical power inheritant in the symbol of the Swastika, the long lost civilization of Thule, the superiority of the Aryan race and how the “evil Jews were the reincarnation of an inferior 4th root race of humanity from eons ago who were struggling to get control of the world again”.

        Stupidly I did not buy the book at the time.

        I would be returning to Camrose in a few weeks’ time and could buy it then.

        When I returned, it had already been sold.

        And I’ve been kicking myself ever since.

        That some key Nazi ideas may not have originated in Germany.

        An American Scottish Rite Freemason and Confederate Army General was talking about them way back in the late 19th Century.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        Amazing! Then again, the infamous Zion Protocols did originate in Czarist Russia. Besides, anti-Semitic teachings can be traced all the way to the Middle Ages – if not even earlier.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,


        But anti-Semitism mixed with lost civilizations, reincarnation and the Swastika as a magic symbol with special occult powers of its own seems to have been a fairly recent idea.

        Although of course the average Nazi probably didn’t believe in reincarnation although Himmler’s SS did.

        They saw themselves as the reincarnation of the Teutonic Knights defending the German people against the onslaught of barbaric Slavic hordes from the East.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        Didn’t know that, either! Fascinating – thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You’re welcome, Nicholas. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. ั•ะฝั”ััฮนั” โˆ‚ั” ฮฝฮฑโ„“ั”ัฮนฮฑ said,

    I am not sure of the Thule society that if the uses of swastika was prior to their belief since the pre-World War I, Europe. But as I know it that swastika was originally founded way older as far as 10, 000 BC in Ukraine. Not sure if it is a religious symbol at that time.

    But in many culture, swastika form was to be found in many other religion but in different shapes and forms.

    And your magician blog is creepy this time. Especially the almost-prophetic-like ending. As if the end is nearing.

    Brilliant story writing as always, Chris.
    Love it!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks very much, Sherrie. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Glad you enjoyed It.

      Yes, the swastika was also a symbol used in ancient Hinduism and Buddhism.

      And the swastika has also been found as a symbol on Hopi Indian rock carvings in the American Southwest.

      • ั•ะฝั”ััฮนั” โˆ‚ั” ฮฝฮฑโ„“ั”ัฮนฮฑ said,

        Or just as my father would say … “It is a prank, Sherry! I tell ya! It was just a broken branch and put into two and an ancient artist saw it. So you think it is religious. The same as the theory using the branch for finding water! Duh!” LOL

        I guarantee you that my father would say that. FOR SURE!

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        And then my dad would show your dad how he finds water using a branch.

        I’d forgotten about dowsing rods and diviners until you mentioned that.

        I forget what type of branch is used for doing that.

        A lot of people thought it was just a myth or folklore until they saw my dad actually doing that.

        Of course the person himself or herself must have special abilities themselves as well.

        Because others could then hold the branch and the branch would do nothing.

        The branch wouldn’t go down indicating water like it would in my dad’s hands.

        I forgot all about that ability of my dad until you mentioned that just now.


        My dad really was an amazing man.

      • ั•ะฝั”ััฮนั” โˆ‚ั” ฮฝฮฑโ„“ั”ัฮนฮฑ said,

        If you father can find water with a branch, that is pretty good when you are in the mid of a desert, you know. lol

        But I want a talent of trying to find a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow. I would’ve been a millionaire everytime! LOL

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Of course the problem in the desert is finding a tree as well (to get the branch).

        Of course if you had a dog with you, the dog would settle for a fire hydrant just as well as a tree in the desert.

        You should get your plastic leprechauns in your back garden to tell you where the pot of gold is.

        You can say to them in the sinister Germanic accent of one of those Nazi villains from old spy movies, “Ve have vays of making you talk.”

      • ั•ะฝั”ััฮนั” โˆ‚ั” ฮฝฮฑโ„“ั”ัฮนฮฑ said,

        Well, in that case, your father may need cactus to find water then. Or a palm tree.
        (โˆช โ—ก โˆช)

        Oh, I don’t have any plastic lep in my garden. Ok! I go an buy few of those then. lol

        hahaha … Love that Germanic conversation there!

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Glad you enjoy my Germanic conversation of Nazis interrogating Allied Spies. ๐Ÿ˜€

        So you don’t have any plastic leprechauns in your garden eh?

        Just plastic gnomes I take it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • ั•ะฝั”ััฮนั” โˆ‚ั” ฮฝฮฑโ„“ั”ัฮนฮฑ said,

        I have gnomes. Those are actually gifts from my mother-in-law and I repaired it, and re-painted it after few years of corrosion. Those gnomes are made of oak and almost 25 years old. Look antique. Surely its military talent are quite rusty! LOL

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,


        Gnomes made out of oak wood.


        I’d like to see those. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • ั•ะฝั”ััฮนั” โˆ‚ั” ฮฝฮฑโ„“ั”ัฮนฮฑ said,

        Yes, made of oak wood and I guessed long ago when my mother in law bought it in the sixties that it must have been quite expensive.

        Once she joked on it that those gnomes are of great garden weapon, that if anyone attack you at the backyard, just throw it right at ’em! It will do miracle, for sure! LOL hahahaha …

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I imagine it would. LOL !

        You could use them for staking a vampire through the heart. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I like it most impressed: )

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks, Tim.

      I’ve been lying sick in bed the past few days.

      I really should see a doctor but I haven’t paid the outrageous Health Insurance Premiums they charge in this province put in by the Fascist Kristy Clark Provincial Government (that was re-elected to power by the brainless voters of rural British Columbia) nor can I afford to pay a doctor out of my own pocket.

      That’s why I haven’t dropped by to read your blogs.

      I just have enough strength to post to my own.
