Florence + The Machine “Spectrum” Religious and Illuminati Symbolism


Florence + The Machine has a new video called Spectrum. She is no stranger to Illuminati symbolism in her previous videos. I’ve covered the blatant symbolism in No Light, No Light and she’s even responded directly to me through an MTV interview where she proclaims her innocence from this Illuminati connection (that’s just a guess; I don’t know where else she saw the Illuminati rumors though…).

So what does this new video offer by way of Illuminati symbolism? Well, for starters, you can’t go wrong with an All Seeing Eye:


I go into further detail on the importance of the All Seeing Eye in the Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: The All Seeing Eye and 666 Hand Gesture post:



The one eye symbolism is everywhere, you’ve just got to look for it. Here it finds its way into the video near the beginning but that’s about it. Beyond that, there isn’t a ton of stuff in this video like there was in No Light, No Light. The only inference I can make is her imagery of the mermaid type water goddess.

The water goddess stuff refers back to hidden ancient religions. The Illuminati understands the importance of these ancient religions, that is why you see ancient Roman statues throughout the capital of Washington D.C. The book The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown explores these ideas further. The Dogon tribes of Mali (numbering 500,000+ for the population) believes in the Nommo religion, which could arguably be the oldest religion on Earth.

The water goddess imagery and deities are found in many religions, and even incorporated into subliminal logos. Recognize this one?

The Dogon’s Nommo are amphibious hermaphrodite deities that live on worlds that circles the star, Sirius. This is why many of the religions worship star constellations, they saw these alien gods descend from the sky who came from these planets to teach and guide our species. This point is argued further on Ancient Aliens, David Icke, etc. I talk about this on my website often, I’ll work on a more formal write up with the basics someday when I find the time (and fully understand it-there’s a lot to wrap your head around when you’ve been conditioned from birth to have a certain set of beliefs).

So anyhow, here’s some more imagery, you can see the emphasis on the genitalia with the lights, I believe this could be to draw attention to the hermaphroditic nature of her Nommo inspired character. The Dogon religion’s Nommo (or Nummo) believed there was a link between eternal life and androgynous hermaphrodites. This could be some esoteric knowledge that we don’t understand.



Also, I’ll need your help in figuring out what this frame is all about.

There’s a quick flash where there appears to be a juxtaposition of her watch (time of 9:20) and the clock in the video (7:20). What could this mean? There must be a meaning, nothing is done on accident. I’ve got a wild theory but it’s better than nothing…

The clock shows 7:20, which could be coinciding with a Bible verse (I thought of this because in her No Light, No Light video she features herself falling through a Christian church). But which Bible verse? Here is where the course could go off the rails because the only thing that I have to point me is the symbolism found in the rest of the video. She appears to be a mermaid in a body of water. This is reminiscent of the Great Flood in the story of Noah’s Ark found in Genesis.

Genesis 7:20- Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

Here is an image from a Nuremberg Bible from the 1400’s with a mermaid in the Great Flood.

So this would lead me to believe that Genesis 9:20 (or 9:23 to be more accurate) would be the reference for the watch on her wrist. Genesis 9:20-27 is the first prophetic statement ever made by man in the Bible (Noah curses Canaan people). Legend has it that this Curse of Ham was a curse on dark skinned people. This could be held true due to the history of slavery because in the 25th verse it says that they will be servants unto their brethren:

Canaan cursed by Noah
Genesis 9:20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.
24 ¶ And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Noah also begins agriculture in this section, which is of great significance. The Great Flood tale is told in various religions and legends, including the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh. The Bible’s Book of Genesis had dates of the story that sit somewhere between 8000 BC to 4000 BC depending on who you talk to. The Flood spoken of in Genesis 7:20 could have very well occurred around 8000 BC, as scientists have studied a historical climate change that had a cataclysmic effect (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/11/071118213213.htm). In that same article, the writer postulates that the Flood kickstarted the European farming movement, which is what is spoken of in Genesis 9:20. Human civilization transitioned from hunter-gatherers to agriculture and all technology followed behind. Even writing was invented long AFTER agriculture, hence the theorizing involved with exactly how agriculture began (although many credit the Babylonian/Sumerians as the forefathers of agriculture).

Ancient Astronaut Theory suggests that alien beings came to Earth to give us some help and show us how to get started with agriculture. This explains the sudden leap in technology and civilization that follows the hunter-gatherer transition to agriculture communities. The Dead Sea Scrolls talk about Noah’s birth and how nobody could figure out who Noah’s father was. Enoch tells others that the “guardians of the sky” impregnated the woman with Noah. Here is a video that discusses how Noah was a hybrid alien with bestowed knowledge from ancient astronauts:



And finally, here’s the video for your interpretation and opinion. Let me know what you think.



    • Common says

      Litterally say her name, and fall into idolizing objects other than the true one God, thuse diverting into what Conspiracies live to tell and warn about…

      • Molly1234 says

        Just a thought, but Lucifer is often referred to as an angel of light, illuminati symbolism for Lucifer includes many points of light…Maybe they’re saying “say Lucifer’ s name & have his light guide you”…?

    • Simon says

      The fact that she used the word Illuminates isn’t significant at all, there’s WAY heavier symbolism in this video.

      • Peter says

        my point is DONT GET STUCK ON THAT LINE JUST BECAUSE IT HAS A WORD STARTING WITH ILLUMINAT… lol not only that line refers to illuminati, however let me explain you that one line,
        Say my name ;; and every color illuminates = Worship me ;; and you’ll be rewarded with a paradise

        in other words, “i’m god, say my name (not His)”

        • velma7 says

          If that’s the case, then it is purely animalistic – very illuminati I’d say. I used to think F and the machine were interesting/different 60’s style in a not illuminati way – now I see they’re sold out like the rest. When I saw her on tv in that lizard get up that was it.

      • Klio says

        There might be symbolism in the video, but the song itself is about climaxing, there are all the colours you see and feel as the Orgasm seems to burst, and anyone who has an ego in bed, wants to hear their name.

    • Peter says

      Dont be stupid, whats weird about that line? do you know what illumination means? it means lightning, shining, etc.. has nothing to do with secret ocult societies. but the lyrics are quiet weird, it has no point. i mean, what is she talking about? … sounds very anti-christ rubish…

      • amos says

        Do your research before calling people stupid. The symbols are screaming out loud from the video and lyrics as well. If you cant find any Illuminati symbols meaning you are not yet awaken…

        • carpenter says

          None of this is Illuminati at all. Even if it is, could be just coincidence. Many producers works with the a lot of singers so obviously some producers wanted to incorporate some of their own identities into the music videos.

          The lyrics are supposed to be that way, the meaning behind the song are about hope. When there’s no hope n you feel like you’re going down there are people who will back them up so they will help him/her to her feet.
          “say my name n every color illuminates”, doesn’t mean she wants people to think she is god, what if I’m the one singing that song?! It doesn’t mean I wanted to be called god.

          The clock things are probably more like product placement n doesn’t mean that much that’s why people can’t figure it out the meaning. You guys are trying to hard to find people mistakes.

          The water goddess that you mention actually is a painting that the producer/Florence herself is inspired of. They have the painting in the video as well, maybe you decided to skip that part.

          Her songs always related to time-pain, love-death, life. She likes water too as in connection feeling so she incorporate it in her symbol or something. You know the phrase water as healing power? Like when it’s raining you feel more sleepy, relax or when showering you feel more at ease, calm mind n you get alone time.

          I know Illuminati exist not because it already is, but because men created it n they wants people to believe in it. You guys prob think that the entertainment industry has been corrupted by it, but not all companies are like that.

    • Larry says

      Also in the Spectrum video….. They show an upside-down triangle on the wall. That is a symbol for the star Sirius.

  1. LIZ S says

    I’m intrigued whose name the song refers to – as whomsover’s name we utter will manifest them into being – as well as their opposite. Only something which requires recognition of its existence to prove a point to it’s opposite may require their name to be spoken. Truth has no other name but it has an opposite – utter a lie and you give it life…utter a truth and you give rise to its opposite – and the free will to chose between the two. To name something as good also defines that which it is not – evil. Does a mirror reflect the truth, the truth in ourselves or what we choose to see? Do those who know the truth need a mirror? I guess that depends on where we see the truth reflected.

  2. attis says

    Simon, I am really taken back by Metropolis. I have never seen or heard of this movie until I saw your link, and just wow… amazing link, thanks so much. More people should see this!

  3. Matt says

    Due that I actively avoid shit music, I only saw this song for the first time this morning. Couldn’t help notice Florence has changed in recent times, gotten darker. I don’t really follow conspiracy theories but thought I’d give an interpretation a go on this vid.

    0.05 – Florence’s patent pending Vag-light. Surely would hold some sexual connotations.
    0.49 – Florence completes a pyramid with sun at top.
    0.53 – Florence’s Vag-light takes distinguishable form of a pyramid, inconsistent with the other circular lights in the room.
    1.24 – Hand signs the Dueguard of the Entered Apprentice.
    1.51 – Mocks Christ on the cross. Hands twisted, eyes starring upward (as commonly depicted). This one I find hard to dismiss. Try doing it yourself, it is the most unnatural party trick.
    2.09 – She is wearing her bvlgari watch upside-down for some reason.
    2.38 – Guy on left performs sign of the Fellow Craft.
    3.24 – Dancers form pyramid with pillars (men)
    3.50 – Wtf was that Florence.

    This is of course all speculation, that is, I have gone out of my way to justify what may in fact be complete coincidence. Take what you will.

  4. Chris says

    To be frank you guys are fucking idiots! So gullible and i hope you stop believing everything on the internet. To believe in something so off the wall is ridiculous. You have a “theory” and calling it “wild” is an understatement. Florence and the machine is a great band with beautiful music

  5. Matt says


    It is a shame that something must be “on the wall” for you to believe it. Can’t you at least, for the fun of it, consider the possibility that things are not what they seem?


  6. Not a native speaker of English says

    Do you think this music affects us on a subconscious level?–I’m reffering to the lyrics and their occult meaning, since all music affects mood. Is it harmful in any way, or is it just a sick game the elites use in order to give predictions to those in the know? I know about conspiracies and believe some of them to be true but I deeply appreciate the music of florence and the machine. Heck, if wouldn’t know the real meaning of the lyrics I might’ve very well presume they are inspiring and upifting. But that’s the trick, isn’t it…. So please, someone? Any inputs?

    • Nova says

      You answered your own question, that’s your intuition telling you something and bringing it to your attention. Yes, music does have an impact on us at a subconcious level and affects our energy, brain and ultimately the thoughts we think and decisions we make. We have to understand that the music industry is paid for and therefore controlled by the ones in power. The same ones who are playing games with our mind, bodies and souls and are involved in occult rituals and spells. You have to understand that the music and Hollywood industries are like giant wizards casting constant spells of illusion to keep control of their slaves, us.

  7. shaz says

    I’m not one for conspiracy theories. So perhaps attributing the video to the illuminati is not one I’m particularly concerned with, however I do know that a lot of symbols are derives from actual Egyptian mythology.
    The video definitely has references to Egyptian mythology and the song itself may be about different times in Egyptian creation mythology.

    Where it shows Egyptians and a pyramid water that seems to be a reference to Heliopolis and “benben” and the moisture god Teftun. then it cuts to the small segment where it shows her covering her right eye. That is most likely referring to the Eye of Ra (The right eye being the sun in Egyptian Mythology) often represented with a coiled cobra which explains her watch. The left eye is the Eye of Horus (lunar eye). I’m not sure if the actual times have significance other than maybe to represent night and day. Why she is covering her hand with an open palm may also be relevant. An open palm in mythology was to ward off the evil eye which originated from the Eye of Ra and Horus, that open palm is known as the Hamsa. To ward it off the superstition is to wear black aprons. There are references to wearing black , palms and eyes within the song too she even takes of a black apron in the video at 2:46. The beginning of the video and song seems to be a reference to the primeval waters and Atum especially the emphasis on a certain part of her. Then the creation of Shu the god of air/atmosphere, and Tefnut (water/moisture). She seems to have two themes in this video in the ballerina and city, air and water.

    whether any of this is true is hard to say since the references are too obscure but there is certainly some Egyptian mythology in the video.

  8. Roll says

    OMFG…. I understand that its is all a bit suspicious, her Sake it Out video is crazy and not to mention No Light No Light. But why do you judge someone without knowing them? I have followed Florence since she first came out. Even had the pleasure of meeting her. She’s lovely, and the most kind hearted person i know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ia5NseXM60 . She uses those lyrics, and symbols because like you that’s what she is fascinated by. She reads tons of books and is so open minded so she knows what that stuff means. As for this video. The song is for her gay fans for fucks sake. “spectum” RAINBOW! The glowing vagina and the fact that she looks a bit like a man in the video is her representing someone with no gender. The watch is not even upside down. That’s how you wear it if you want to tell time. So stop bashing on innocent people.

    The Freemason symbol (Square and Compasses) is plainly visible in the second photo, at the top of the building in the centre of the picture. Noticed that the first time I watched the film clip.

  10. sally says

    yep. that masonic symbol on that building was the first thing i noticed on that picture. wow come on . how obvious.very disappointed because i loved her before she became so famous and now she’s all caught up in this world.

  11. illuminata says

    Florence is such a wonderful singer,and eventhough her songs in ceremonials are little darker than in lungs, they are still amazing. I also have a theory:
    Her songs are like poetry. They don’t have 1special meaning. The way you interpretend it is their meaning. Please consider that theory. She isn’t an illuminati member. And even if she was, she would still be a genius.

  12. says

    Howdy I am so grateful I found your website, I really found you by error, while I was browsing
    on Google for something else, Regardless I am here now and would
    just like to say kudos for a remarkable post and a all round exciting blog (I also
    love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have bookmarked
    it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read
    a great deal more, Please do keep up the superb jo.

  13. André says

    My friend, translate this and you will understand my opinion: Na antiguidade eles tinham como base divindades religiosas que derivavam desde “aliens” até o Deus que tanto temos por conhecido hoje. Acontece que na música que a Florence fez tem o intuito que ela tanto quer demonstrar com subliminares em todos os seus outros clipes que não deixa de estar errado ao seu comentário de ser uma Deusa, porém você faz menção específica a uma Deusa “D’água”, abra sua mente e procure o sentido nas frases e nas questões religiosas ocultistas que temos por ai, principalmente quando ela diz “Say my name, and every colour illuminates” pois ela própria faz referência a Deusa que em tudo se encontra, tudo o que é natural e tudo o que existe em Terra, faz menção também ao ínicio da criação do homem e da busca que temos em auto-conhecimento e diz que nós temos que “dizer seu nome e todas as cores vão se iluminar” no sentido de que teremos todo o conhecimento sobre o mundo e os mundos “And we are never be afraid again”, “afraid – medo” que faz menção as “entidades espectrais” que temos ao nosso redor e nos fazem sentir medo do desconhecido, tanto para comprovar a tese, faz menção indireta aos elementos que a Deusa a qual me refiro faz muita questão de deixar claro que se encontra neles que no mesmo parágrafo dá a idéia em “Kiss your eyes and kiss your palms” que nos abrirão os olhos e os caminhos e no clipe, na parte do fim em que a Deusa morre, faz menção de que toda a sabedoria do mundo está por se acabar, que estão sendo procuradas “mentiras” enquanto a plena verdade morre.

  14. Aubrey says

    Notice how she symbols the illuminati by covering one of her eyes i the picture above? Also, remember how the illuminati has those cards that tell the future etc. well one if them had a big building that sorta resembled the building featured in the video with the clock. Maybe they’re trying to tell us something..

  15. says

    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.

    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  16. says

    A person specifically lend a hand to create vitally blogposts I had express. Which is the very first time I personally used your internet-site web site therefore a lot? I stunned together with the analysis you have made to generate this particular send outstanding. Excellent pastime!

  17. X says

    Did any of you guys see her tattoo???

    Totally throws this BS theory out of the window, as she, if anything, is against the so-called luminati and shape shifters…

    Guys need to get your facts straight first instead of witch hunting everyone on TV, and secondly, remember, all artists are expresses of how they see life, not of how they live it.

  18. Cameron McCarthy says

    The lyrics “when we come back we’ll be dressed in black” could it be reffering to the end of the world in the bible when the demons come up and take people and when god comes to save his followers.
