The astral body or light body is the part of us that is energetically connected with the ether/astral and the fabric of the universe. The multiple layers that are perceived, often interpreted as colored bands connected to the “chakras”, are actually what bind us within the systematic gate-existence of the physical universe…This mardukite.com blog post is derived from the “Astral Body of Light” lecture by Joshua Free, adapted from Liber-G and found among introductory prefaces for the complete NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE and the new Fifth Anniversary NECRONOMICON COMPACT EDITION.
At the center of our being contains the Divine Spark of the Source, that which is Eternal and at the core of all vibration. Entering and activating the “Body of Light” with regular practice will not only increase your mystical abilities but also the true understanding (or “experience” if you wish) and auric strength necessary for Gatekeeping (also called Gate Walking in the Simon-derived tradition). Each time the light body is activated it becomes easier to do so the next time because you are becoming more consciously aware of it and your abilities.Initially entering the “Body of Light” is, as the mystic masters of the past have expressed, a matter of visualization or concentration and intention or willpower. The proper use of these faculties is what all metaphysical pursuits are really made up of in spite of their outer form.
This manner of operations is quite different from the “word and gesture” techniques found in more contemporary practices, which are actually more effectively executed once the operator is operating from within the light body. Be sure that you are comfortable in your environment and properly prepared (and purified) in your internal set.
–Focusing all of your awareness as a (ball of) light in your feet.
–Drawing this energy up from the ground beneath you (and essentially the unnamed,
unmentioned, unnumbered “Earth Gate”).
–Slowly bring this light and awareness throughout your entire body as you perform progressive muscle relaxation coupled with regulatory breathing.
The “astral” equation is usually the part of the (Anunnaki) Babylonian Mardukite system (whether it be this, the Simonian or even Enochian magick) that seems to separate the “bookshelf sorcerers” and “armchair wizards” from the successful and dedicated seekers. This is not necessarily due to a lack of dedication, but to a lack of pure learning (true thinking) and the overcoming of bad habits in self-doubt and frustration concerning such efforts. Secondly, the astral is something that we all innately share ties to as a part of our natural state. Therefore accessing it should not be seen so much as “a thing to do”, rather, it is “a thing to be.”
In the physical world you are programmed to have a sensory stimulus-response with the most basic and lowest functioning vibrations possible. Many of them are beautiful, and the more natural they are, the higher the vibrations seem to be – and yet still, all that exists in the physical is but a mere shadow or mirage of light bent across the screen for your enjoyment. When you can patiently learn to adjust your “spirit vision” to see through the flickering lights of the physical, then you are ready to step through the portal…
