Exploring the History of Babylonian New Year's and Evil

The arrival of the New Year brings about the concept of ‘New Year Resolutions,’ which has its roots in Babylon, around 2000 B.C. The new year was celebrated during the spring equinox, and the Akitu festival marked the renewal of life.

The "gods" of Ancient New Years

During this festival, individuals made promises to the gods for good behavior in the coming year—one of the false deities being the infamous Marduk, specifically listed in Jeremiah 50 as quaking in fear upon Babylon’s capture (“…Bel will be put to shame, Marduk filled with terror…They will dry up. For it [Babylon] is a land of idols, idols that will go mad with terror.) (Jeremiah 50:2, 38).

Similarly, in ancient Rome, resolutions were made to Janus, the god of beginnings and transitions, during the early days of the calendar year. Janus was often depicted with two faces, looking to the past and the future, symbolizing reflection and foresight.

The primary purpose of New Year Resolutions is to encourage individuals to reflect on their past experiences and set positive intentions for the future. It serves as a time for self-evaluation, prompting people to consider areas in their lives where they can strive for improvement. This practice fosters a sense of accountability and determination, motivating individuals to embark on personal growth journeys.

Resolutions of the World and Subliminals

New Year Resolutions often revolve around common themes that encompass various aspects of life. Health and fitness goals, including exercise routines, healthy eating habits, and weight management, are frequently at the forefront. Personal development goals focus on acquiring new skills, pursuing education, and advancing in one's career. Relationships are also a common area of resolution, with individuals aiming to enhance communication, spend quality time with loved ones, and build new connections. Mental well-being is another prevalent category, encompassing goals related to stress management, mindfulness, and emotional resilience.

In order to reach these the goal of New Year Resolutions, individuals may find themselves drawn to watching or listening to ‘Subliminal messaging,’ also simply known as ‘subliminals.’

Subliminals are audio-based, comprising of a specific set of binaural beats (akin to drumbeats set at a specific frequency to ‘train’ the subconscious/brain to receive the intended effect of the subliminal), repeated affirmations, and relevant isochronic tones/rife frequencies (high-pitched tones intended to manifest an effect on the physical body.)
