In 1917 Rudolf Steiner Foresaw a Vaccine That Would ‘Drive All Inclination Toward Spirituality Out of People’s Souls’

If you’ve felt at all like you’re in a spiritual war right now, you’re not alone.

Many of the world’s greatest scholars, philosophers, and ascetics understood the world to be multi-dimensional and co-inhabited by non-physical beings both good and evil, always at war with us and each other.

It’s not something that can be rightly explained with language or science. One must cultivate such sensitivity that the existence of spiritual beings can be directly experienced.

Rudolf Steiner was an Austrian philosopher, educator, and spiritualist, and over the course of his life, he published numerous books and papers on the science of spirituality. He viewed the human body as a spiritual vessel, open to occupation by other entities.

To be conscious of these forces was to have the power to reject their negative influence. To remain unconscious of them was to be a leaf in their wind, and spiritual cultivation was the key to developing a conscious awareness of them.

“The spirits of darkness are now among us. We have to be on guard so that we may realize what is happening when we encounter them and gain a real idea of where they are to be found. The most dangerous thing you can do in the immediate future will be to give yourself up unconsciously to the influences which are definitely present.” ~ Rudolf Steiner

If people express the natural human inclination toward spiritual growth, they free themselves from fear and anxiety and effectively develop a sort of immunity to the influences of negative entities. If not, our vibration attracts hostile spirits and we fall unconsciously unto their influence.

“There are beings in the spiritual realms for whom anxiety and fear emanating from human beings offer welcome food. When humans have no anxiety and fear, then these creatures starve… If fear and anxiety radiates from people and they break out in panic, then these creatures find welcome nutrition and they become more and more powerful. These beings are hostile towards humanity.

Everything that feeds on negative feelings, on anxiety, fear and superstition, despair or doubt, are in reality hostile forces in supersensible worlds, launching cruel attacks on human beings, while they are being fed. Therefore, it is above all necessary to begin with that the person who enters the spiritual world overcomes fear, feelings of helplessness, despair and anxiety. But these are exactly the feelings that belong to contemporary culture and materialism; because it estranges people from the spiritual world, it is especially suited to evoke hopelessness and fear of the unknown in people, thereby calling up the above mentioned hostile forces against them.” ~Rudolf Steiner

With such profound global fear, anxiety, and panic over the present pandemic, many are exposing their own spiritual sicknesses and acquiescing to any recommended behavior or intervention that might alleviate these emotions. Along with this is the push to vaccinate 7 billion healthy people.

Nearly 100 years ago, in a series of 14 essays published under the title, The Fall of the Spirits of Darkness, Steiner issued a warning to future generations about a possible measure of mass control, quite similar to the visions presented by Orwell and Huxley. Steiner foresaw a future when vaccines could steal our spiritual nature.

First, some background:

“In these fourteen lectures, given at the end of 1917 following four years of war in Europe, Steiner speaks on the complex spiritual forces behind the World War I, humanity’s attempts to build theoretically perfect social orders, and the many divisions and disruptions that would continue on Earth into our own time. Humanity in general was asleep to the fact that fallen spirits, cast from the spiritual worlds, had become intensely active on Earth. This manifested mainly in human thinking and perception of the surrounding world. ” [Source]

The fall into such destructive slumber would be marked by an age of materialism and centralization of power, during which the influences of ‘spirits of darkness’ would inspire humans to devise new technologies and new means of oppression. Steiner comments:

“I have told you that the spirits of darkness are going to inspire their human hosts, in whom they will be dwelling, to find a vaccine that will drive all inclination toward spirituality out of people’s souls when they are still very young, and this will happen in a roundabout way through the living body. Today, bodies are vaccinated against one thing and another; in future, children will be vaccinated with a substance which it will certainly be possible to produce, and this will make them immune, so that they do not develop foolish inclinations connected with spiritual life – ‘foolish’ here, or course, in the eyes of materialists. . . .

“. . . a way will finally be found to vaccinate bodies so that these bodies will not allow the inclination toward spiritual ideas to develop and all their lives people will believe only in the physical world they perceive with the senses. Out of impulses which the medical profession gained from presumption – oh, I beg your pardon, from the consumption [tuberculosis] they themselves suffered – people are now vaccinated against consumption, and in the same way they will be vaccinated against any inclination toward spirituality. This is merely to give you a particularly striking example of many things which will come in the near and more distant future in this field – the aim being to bring confusion into the impulses which want to stream down to earth after the victory of the [Michaelic] spirits of light [in 1879].” ~Rudolf Steiner

Steiner was talking only about vaccines here. His comment does not consider the compounded effects on human spirituality of the many myriad influences we have in our world today, all of which work against spiritual connection on their own right.

Again, if you’ve felt at all like you’re in a spiritual war, you’re not alone.

    O but! there is the bigger picture, and the physical ideology will soon be taking take the back seat! Forward We souls go, all 7 plus billion of us with Gaia in earth form, also a living soul, taking us to the higher energy levels of consciousness. Did he also see in his thoughts our portal sun? flowing in the higher energies from the higher realms, flowing in flooding earth waking us up? You see We do have higher dimensions assisting Gaia and everyone in this transition to the higher energy levels. As for these vaccines, people will reject it as truth reveals the ill-intent, malicious in its form, for the complete control of Gaia and her inhabitants by the those who disconnected themselves from source long ago, vaccines are on its way out!

    Thankyou for this positive evolutionary elevating take on an article which seems to perpetuate the very energy of fear that it seemingly warns about. Good to post alternative juxpostations on this topic. As Mahatma Gandhi once said “ When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”

    The work of Rudolf Steiner has always been in opposition to the globalist agenda. Without Steiner’s insight we would be far less certain of their distortions and intentions. It is interesting how those with deeper and more accurate vision are seeing and or sensing the scenario of coerced vaccinations that are designed solely to disconnect ego and the physical body from our heart and spiritual center. The ultimate scheme being a dystopian technocracy which Steiner called the [false] Eighth sphere: the imprisonment of dead human souls living in bondage for ages to come.

    This is counterbalanced by the second coming of Christ, within the heroic impulses of the Archangel through the freed individuated human soul. Like so many others, I sense that these end-times are upon us and that we are in the throws of a spiritual conflict.

    Perhaps even more important is understanding the force that is driving all of this chaos. If we are to use Steiner as a reference, then we must concede that we are now witnessing the incarnation of Ahriman through the vessel of whatever politician is left standing. This was one of Steiner’s greatest messages. This event is unstoppable and ordained to play itself out on the world stage. Steiner even points to the soul who will act as the vessel of the incarnation as a wealthy American businessman who would have a bland name like John William Smith; although that would not be his real name. He will have a divisive and polarizing personality, and be by all accounts, will be the epitome of an egotist.

    Great change is destined to occur with this incarnation. In the beginning, he will be hailed as a savior, but I expect varying levels of suffering and chaos to follow as the transhumanist agenda attempts to manifest itself.

    It is up to the spiritual warriors to call out these injustices and maintain stability in the zero-point. Fear is not an option for the knight whose heart has been ennobled by the spirit’s presence. We must champion the wisdom of the divine feminine through the actions of the divine masculine. Only then, can we fulfill our true destiny of global ascension.

    Where exactly can we check to make sure this is accurate to Rudolf Steiner? There seems to be new vaccine articles coming forward that are not written by him.
