“The Lost Book of Nostradamus” was recently aired on the History Channel. They got it all wrong! While sensationalism sells and controversy attracts listeners, the History Channel should have done more to balance the commentary on this newly discovered manuscript. While their was a hint of mystical inference in some of the commentary, most so called ‘experts’ greatly missed the mark in the interpretation of the text and images in The Prophecies by this well known seer.

In a multi-part series of articles it is my intent to show that the current popular interpretations of the symbols presented in the “Lost Book” are sadly lacking in efficacy. In doing so, the current buzz around this book will have done Nostradamus and humanity a great disservice. It is important to keep in mind that current interpretations are geared to a comparison of the text to Christian ideology, mytghs and scriptures. By spending most of the analysis comparing Nostradamus, prophecies to the Bible in general, and revelations in particular, the effort becomes self-serving and self-fulfilling.

Nostradamus was a mystic with ties to several secret societies, most notably, the Rose Cross. In this context, new levels of observation come to light when viewing the images contained in the text. As a matter of fact, if one examines The Secret Symbols of the Rosicrucian’s, it will be clear that there is more than meets the eye with respect to the intent and meaning of the Nostradamus prophecies. Further, while the commentators on the show made mention of tarot symbols, it is clear that their understanding is not at the esoteric levels. In my co-authored novel, “Waking God,” the concept of a Tarot Code was introduced. The book is a mystical treatise in the guise of a spiritual thriller and states that the tarot has hits roots in imagery that preceded the Assyrian Empire and has been carried forth into the modern era. These symbols provide a pictorial history of human evolution as well as clues, or prophecies regarding our future. These symbols are found in almost every civilization and yet are understood by only a few.

Contrary to information and suppositions made in the History Channel’s broadcast, the symbols of Nostradamus transcend those images often touted by biblical scholars as messages of doom and world’s end. Perhaps the only real accurate statement on the show that was symbol related is that the prophecies give clues as to the Apocalypse. But even here, it is important to remember that the term ‘apocalypse’ does not mean the end of the world. The word means ‘revelation, to uncover, knowledge revealed’ and not Armageddon or the destruction of the physical world. The term apocalypse has been hijacked by religious dogma to frighten unsuspecting followers into believing that all prophecies that deal with the word apocalypse support their notion that one day, deity will destroy its creation and only the faithful will survive. The apocalypse of Nostradamus deals with the ‘end of lies, not the end of times.’

While more details will be presented in subsequent articles, it should be understood that the true and inner meaning behind the words of Nostradamus concerns humanity’s spiritual awakening. The prophecies are a light post aimed at leading humanity into a new era of spirituality that is devoid of dogma and founded upon the notion of personal spiritual enlightenment. The same can be said for the much misunderstood Book of Revelations. The accuracy of his predictions serves to underscore the fact that he knew the benchmarks that would be achieved as humanity travels on its path of evolution. He was showing people that tough choices must be made if we, in fact, ever hope to prevent our own self-destruction. He was alerting humanity to the ideas that our choices are leading to such things as environmental, social and political collapse if we do not change our way of thinking. His warnings were meant to divert us from catastrophe rather than suggesting that such catastrophe is inevitable. The goal a person telling you not to go down a certain road because the bridge has collapsed is not to foretell of your death; it is meant to prevent your death.

In future articles I will show that the serpents and dragons in the images of Nostradamus are representative of evil or the devil. The female images are not about women trying to become Pope. The Tower of destruction is not about the end of the world. The images of apparent clashes between Muslims and Christians do not predict inevitable religious wars. The symbols of Nostradamus and the Tarot are not about an anti-Christ. Throughout religious history biblical texts, taken out of context, have been used to justify all manner of crime and injustice. The prophecies of Nostradamus are another voice crying out in the wilderness of human history urging us to change our ways and enter a period of great enlightenment. It is incumbent upon modern interpreters of these messages not to fall into the age old religious trap and of using these words of wisdom to frighten humanity into a set of self-fulfilling prophecies.

Hello again Phil,

Once again, a very good article, but there is more to this unfolding scenario. I've updated this reply with key information...

If you'd like some more insight into what's happening with the synchronicity of the recent comet and Nostradamus' Lost Manuscript, then pay close attention.

By the way, the world is not going to end in 2012, though certain things that currently characterize "human civilization as it currently exists" are about to end, spectacularly !! All interpreters who fail to appreciate that Nostradamus was a Jew, simply pretending to be a Catholic to avoid the Inquisition, have no chance of ever understanding the full import of his works. This is a pivotal key to the truth.

Look at Color Plate 18 from the Nostradamus The Lost manuscript book. The 17 stars symbolize seventeen 360-year cycles on the Hebrew calendar. The seventeenth cycle started in 2001/5761..., therefore, the 11th through 17th cycles are the pivotal seven cycles (seven stars in my right hand) of the Book of Revelation! The great dragon is being "cast" into the "lake of fire", while wearing Midas' Phrygian crown (hence, "head of gold"). Also, notice the tail (followers of the great dragon) encircling nine stars and simulating the 13 stars surrounded by clouds on the seal of the USA and the one dollar bill. Notice the link between the US Dollar and the "head of gold" of the great dragon? Furthermore, there are only nine stars encircled by the dragon's tail, to purposefully symbolize the Masonic , secret-society, and mystical nature (Mystery...) of the USA, its national symbols, and leadership. As part of the dragon's tail, it also shows the USA as mere adjuncts of the Vatican's world empire.

Also, look at Plate 17 showing the hand from the "five-star cloud" (notice the purposeful relationship to "seven star hand") helping the soldier attack the Pope. The five stars are symbolizing the Fifteenth cycle, which is the time of Nostradamus ( cycle number 5 counting from cycle 11. (Joseph's "Eleven stars" symbolizes the Second Temple Period), . This is showing Nostradamus (11 characters long...) reaching out from the past to attack the Papacy/Vatican's throat, hence, the source (root) of their words.

Following are excerpts from the prophecy I posted worldwide in April of 2006 and reposted on August 11th, 2007, which happens to be my birthday and during the Perseid meteor showers (cometary debris in Perseus...). Notice that Comet 17P (seventeen) Holmes is now in the constellation Perseus?

"Tearful pit dwellers, shaken mightily by the light, ascend from the abyss before a seventeen-star-filled wind."

"A bearded star roars so fiercely that the city upon seven lowly hills quakes grievously, wailing tearfully about shadowy serpentine dens and rocks. Scorched alive by stellar wind, they shamefully drink about double doubled horns afire, long hidden within the golden altar’s simple ark."

Notice that the sum of the digits of 12/21/2012=11?

Here is Wisdom !!

I thought it was a great article, and I enjoyed reading it. It is going to be great to find the results, isnt it? I thought it was funny, read Nostradamus backwards, "sum-ad-art-soN". Craziness.
