    Lightbulb Adolf Hitler: The Occult Messiah

    Walther Friedrich Schellenberg


    ... this idea of himself as the German Messiah was the source of his personal power. It enabled him to become the ruler of 80 million people - and in the space of 12 short years to leave his ineradicable mark on history.

    Many books have been written about Hitler, many reasons suggested to account for him. It is said that Germany in the 1930's was economically and spiritually bankrupt, that Hitler and his associates were simple opportunists or petty bureaucrats.

    But one explanation tends to contradict another, and when they are combined, they merge into a solution so general that nothing is explained. Understandably, then, many people are still not satisfied that the unique events of the Third Reich have been adequately dealt with by the historians.

    In all this complicated story, there is one question which cries out for an answer: How is it that the theorists have missed a vital element, even when they themselves provide important clues? That element is the occult.

    Many historians have alluded to the NSDAP's origins in an occult sect, to the occult leanings of leading personalities in the party, to the mystical rites of the SS and the Hitlerjugend, to the establishment of a bureau devoted exclusively to the occult during World War II.

    The SS was a paramilitary organization under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party (NSDAP). It began at the end of 1920 as a small, permanent guard unit known as the "Saal-Schutz" (Hall-Protection) made up of NSDAP volunteers to provide security for Nazi Party meetings in Munich.

    Later in 1925, Heinrich Himmler joined the unit which had by then been reformed and renamed the "Schutz-Staffel". Under Himmler's leadership (1929–45), it grew from a small paramilitary formation to one of the largest and most powerful organizations in the Third Reich.

    The Hitlerjugend (abbreviated HJ) was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party. It existed from 1922 to 1945. The HJ was the second oldest paramilitary Nazi group, founded one year after its adult counterpart, the Sturmabteilung (SA).

    It was made up of: the Hitlerjugend proper, for male youth aged 14 to 18; the younger boys' section, Deutsches Jungvolk (German Youth), for those aged 10 to 14; and the girls' section, the Bund Deutscher Mädel (the League of German Girls).

    It now seems puzzling that they should not also have given as much consideration to the underlying basis for these odd phenomena as they gave to economic and social factors. But this has led, inevitably, to selective blindness.

    In order not to be accused of giving credence to irrational beliefs, they have failed to see those beliefs in their proper historical perspective.

    Since early studies always influence later ones, the interpretation of Nazi origins has tended to remain pretty much the same for the past two decades.

    All the same, people do seem to have a subliminal awareness that the National Socialism was involved in occultism.

    The current occult revival has placed us in a better position to examine the National Socialism from a different perspective, and gives ample ground for believing that occult beliefs and practices played a major part in the history of the Third Reich.

    Some scholars may have been thrown off the scent because Hitler went to great pains to eradicate occultism from Germany almost as soon as he came to power, and on that account, is mistakenly identified as an enemy of irrational faith.

    On the contrary. As will be borne out in later chapters, the occult was purged, not because it was abhorrent, but because Hitler took it seriously - so seriously, indeed, that it posed a potential threat.

    The astrologer Wilhelm Wulff, who was put to work by the SS casting horoscopes of nations, groups, and movements, describes, in 'Zodiac and Swastika', Heinrich Himmler's confession of his own interest in and practice of occultism and his explanation of the purge:

    'For us politics means... the elimination of all forces except those serving the one constructive idea...

    In the Third Reich we have to forbid astrology... We cannot permit any astrologers to follow their calling except those who are working for us. In the National Socialist state astrology must remain a privilegium singulorum. It is not for the broad masses.'

    Wilhelm Theodor H. Wulff (27 March 1892 - 9 June 1979) was an German-Austrian astrologer and writer. He is best known for the 1973 book 'Zodiac und Hakenkreuz'. The book tells about his time as an astrologer in Nazi Germany near the end of World War II. He was Heinrich Himmler's astrologer.

    That Hitler was fascinated by the occult is proven: the Berchtesgaden library at the Berghof, discovered in a mine after the war, contained many volumes on occultism and cults.

    Cults, from those connected with George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, and Rudolf Steiner to their present reincarnations, shared certain features: an authoritarian obedience to a charismatic and Messianic leader; secrecy; loyalty to the group above all other ties; a belief in supernatural possibilities open to the members only; initiation into superhuman sources of power; literal acceptance of the existence of supermen who handed down an oral tradition to a chosen people and who were guiding us now.

    George Ivanovich Gurdjieff (January 13, 1866 – October 29, 1949) was an influential spiritual teacher of the early to mid-20th century who taught that most humans live their lives in a state of hypnotic "waking sleep", but that it is possible to transcend to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential.

    Gurdjieff developed a method for doing so, calling his discipline "The Work"(connoting "work on oneself") or "the Method". According to his principles and instructions, Gurdjieff's method for awakening one's consciousness is different from that of the fakir, monk or yogi, so his discipline is also called (originally) the "Fourth Way".

    Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (12 August [O.S. 31 July] 1831 – 8 May 1891) was a Russian-German occultist. In 1875, Blavatsky and Henry Steel Olcott established a research and publishing institute called the Theosophical Society. Blavatsky defined Theosophy as "the archaic Wisdom-Religion, the esoteric doctrine once known in every ancient country having claims to civilization." Blavatsky saw herself as a missionary of this ancient knowledge.

    Here was the missing link in our understanding of those who proclaimed themselves gods. Other historians have corroborated that Germany between the two world wars was particularly ripe for these states of mind.
    It was a time of alienation and impotence.

    World War I had turned everything inside out. Apart from the physical devastations, the three bugbears of taxation, inflation, and confiscation sapped the strength of the middle class. The war itself was but a symptom of growing inner turbulence in Europe. The trouble had, of course, begun much earlier.

    In Germany particularly, the gap between an advancing technology and an outmoded social order was great. In the years preceding World War I, the German Jews were in an especially vulnerable position.

    The full emancipation of the German Jews, which had come in 1871, brought large numbers of Eastern European Jews to Germany. They settled in the cities, taking a prominent part in commercial, cultural, and political life.
    Likewise, the period from 1857 to 1910 saw a rise in the Jewish population of Vienna of more than 400 percent.

    Because of the high value the Jews placed on learning, a disproportionately large number went into the medical and legal professions, trying in that way to gain a modicum of social acceptance.

    Some Germans, of course, mistook these professionals for the average Jew.
    Slowly, a new religion evolved for those Germans who felt somehow cheated - a cult of race, based on the supremacy of the Aryans and the vilification of the Jews.

    It was called the völkisch or Pan-German movement, and it enjoyed great popular appeal. It began a virulent campaign against the 'foreign element.'

    A racial theory of history was developed, and it heralded the coming of a new 'Messiah'. The mystical concepts of Reich and Volk went along with an awakening interest in occultism.

    Two Austrian occultists, Jorg Lanz von Liebenfels and Guido von List, presented an occult anthropological package which attracted a number of wealthy backers. Lanz's Order of New Templars and List's Armanen boasted several influential members.

    Hitler's collection of books obtained as a student contained works on mythology and a collection of von Liebenfels's racist-occult magazine, Ostara (see left), and he even visited with the Templar Master (as seen in Chapter Two).

    Friends of his from the early days recall long conversations on occult themes - everything from reincarnation to yoga to paganism and magic - and his later biographers, such as Sir Allan Bullock, record Hitler's familiarity with occult topics in the days prior to the Second World War.
    While Hitler appreciated the "scholarship" he discovered in the occult magazines and books he devoured, he never took a particular liking to the type of people who composed occult lodges.

    The occultists who were members of his inner circle - such as Heß, Rosenberg, Gutberlet, and Eckart - lived on the periphery of the Thule and Germanenorden lodges; while Eckart and Rosenberg were members of the Thule, it is clear that they would have been exploiting that membership for their own, hidden, agenda.

    The leadership and influence of men like Sebottendorff was strong, and it is doubtful whether Hitler would have willingly accepted a role subservient to an occult (or political) master.

    History has shown that no occult order can survive two masters. Hitler was an activist. Almost any action was better than sitting around a room in a robe and meditating on Thor.

    Hitler was a pacer. He couldn't sit still for long. And he was a demagogue, almost from the beginning. He had to lead; and if he couldn't lead, he would absent himself from the action and the conversation altogether.

    But was Hitler a ritualistic cultist ? As a black-robed, ritual-performing, invocation-chanting priest of Satan ? Probably not.

    The basic details of Hitler's life story are so well known, and so well documented in other sources, that to repeat them here would cheat the reader who is, after all, looking for the occult aspect to the mystery of the Third Reich.

    Let us concentrate then on those aspects of Hitler's life that reveal occult interests and involvements, all the while remembering what has been said here before: that there is no evidence that Hitler ever actually joined an occult society per se, but that the evidence for his fascination with occult themes and subjects is extensive and that a great portion of the program of the Third Reich concerning race, Jews, Freemasons, genetic engineering, etc., was the veritable platform of the völkisch and Pan-German occult lodges carried out in actual practice, a platform Hitler inherited from Liebenfels, Rosenberg, and Eckart during his early days in Vienna and Munich.

    Indeed, his major argument with the occult lodges was only that they had been unable to carry out their programs in the real world.

    Hitler, in a sense, had 'mastered' himself, and the 'real world' to an extent that men like Mathers and even Crowley had not, but wished to.

    That is - not satisfied with phony titles and the accumulation of pedigrees and initiations that typified the 'fin de siecle' occultist - he was able to take his occult beliefs and enact them on the world stage to a degree undreamed of by mainstream occult philosophers.

    In that sense, then, he was a tool of the occultists. More, he was their Creature.

    There is a book written in German, but I forgot its name, and I forgot the author as well, so can't find it back - If you know it, please tell me.

    It's called something like "The Reich before the Reich" or "The long-awaited Third Reich" or something, where the author shows how the collective psyche and large parts of the German culture already in the 19th century were expecting a 'Third Reich' that was hoped by many for the regeneration of German society and of Europe.

    The Third Reich wasn't something that just popped out in the minds of a few Nazis. The 'Third Reich' was mentioned in many works of the late 19th century and early 20th century and many mystics had predicted it.

    Guido von List himself, before dying in 1919, predicted the arrival of a "strong one from above" that would start the Third Reich based on Armanist and Ariosophist principles in 1932. He was late only of one month - on January 30th, 1933 Adolf Hitler became Chancellor.

    One learns from Savitri Devi Maximiani Portas, et al, that Hitler said that he would not be the One, he said this in his youth.
    "I have reached these lands but newly
    From an ultimate dim Thule
    From a wild weird clime, that lieth, sublime,
    Out of SPACE — out of TIME
    ."
    Edgar Allan Poe

    It is true that in early twentieth century (and late nineteenth century) Germany there were a lot of occult movements and that these movements were often nationalist and racialist as well. But the occurrence of occult movements and personalities in the Third Reich is rather a reflection of this general trend than proof of occult origins of nationalsocialism.* The messianic character of Hitler is mostly restricted to the pre-Hitlerian expectations of the 'one' that would save Germany and his own personal interpretation of his own mission. Although I think the way Hitler understood his own position was rather like that of a Hegelian world-historical figure than that of a Messiah.

    Many of the more 'sectarian' völkisch movements were outlawed by the Third Reich. More succesful were those groups that together formed the 'Deutsche Glaubensbewegung', but there in general one can notice opposition to the occult and sometimes religious views that even seem to be of a more atheist nature (Ernst Bergmann, if I remember correctly). On the other hand, a real occult figure in the Third Reich was of course Himmler. Still, his working seems to be his own really and doesn't reflect the ideas of other important nationalsocialist leaders.

    The occult influence of the Thule society is often exagerated. Von Sebottendorf really was the only one with true occult aspirations. Others rather ignored him and within the Thule society the creation of a political branch (the name of 'workers party' already shows its different priorities) became more important than the occult. For nationalsocialism the relevance of the Thule society was probably just that it managed to get some important people together.

    The article also mentions the following:

    An article, written by Alfred Rosenberg and published almost a year after Eckart's death, asserts that Eckart was steeped in the lore of ancient India, and was as well versed in the mystical concepts of Maya and Atman as he was in the poetry of Goethe and the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer.
    This is extremely relevant, for it shows that Eckart believed in the idea of Cosmic Consciousness (Atman) and in the concept that the visible, tangible world is illusion (Maya).
    The term "atman" has also been used, and abused, by a variety of occultists to mean a higher Self and to refer to the next stage in human evolution, which was, of course, virtually a strategic goal of the Occult Reich, and a tenet of their basic beliefs.
    This quote reflects the general tendency of this article to prove by association. But this is in no way proof for the importance of the occult in nationalsocialist thought. As shown by Schopenhauer, the concept of Maya simply fits very well into the philosophical tradition of German idealism. I think it was Houston Stewart Chamberlain who claimed that the ancient Aryans were idealists. Philosophy and politics were much more important for the development of nationalsocialism than the occult.


    *Evola wrote an interesting article as well, opposing the idea that nationalsocialism had its origins in the occult: Hitler and the secret societies.
