As the underground modern inception of “Mardukite” mysteries prepares to celebrate its 10th Anniversary of activity – during the second ever “global synchronized Marduk gate opening meditation” for Beltane 2018 – the subject of astral doorways, star gates, and other “spiritual” or “metaphysical” inter-dimensional portals is becoming a hot topic among not only the “Mardukite” scene, but also by other “New Age,” “alternative science” and “ancient aliens theorists.”Drawing from the pages of the newly released 10th Anniversary edition of the very first Mardukite publication – “ARCANUM: THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM” by Joshua Free –
…a “threshold” or “portal” is quite simply a “gateway.” Modern practitioners believe that via the Universal Akasha (or superstrings) all things are connected. Different circumstances and natural conditions affect this “bridge” between worlds. In ritual meditations and ceremonial magick, the Nemeton (sacred space) serves as a temporary energetic threshold by which one is able to evoke (call forth) external powers that exist in the “invisible” (or what is “outside” of our normal perception of time-space).
In ritual meditations and ceremonial experiments, a “visible” counterpart or tool often represents “invisible” forces. For example, elemental tablets, elemental weapons and the like, are attractants, meaning catalysts for the specific elements being invited and made manifest through magickal work. Another example: regularly casting a circle or using the Watchtower Ceremony in a particular locale can change the vibrations (resonance impressions) of that space.
Meditating and studying from the Mardukite NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE (edited by Joshua Free) and the astral connections made via the Mardukite GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON (Year-2 anthology, also edited by Joshua Free) are believed to open personal channels and establish resonance specific to the planetary or otherwise “Olympian” deities realized in their rawest form as the Anunnaki pantheon, described best by the ancient Sumerians, Babylonians, Akkadians, Chaldeans, Assyrians, and the like – they are encountered elsewhere in geography and history by other cultures and in names from other languages.
A practical exploration of rituals and rites from these traditions is also found in Joshua Free’s Mardukite NECRONOMICON GRIMOIRE (Year 3 anthology).
Since time and space are relative in the Infinite Universe, so are the thresholds. Energetic events in other dimensions (astral, Otherworld, etc.) that are connected to ours will produce effects in our world.
Cosmic events can have repercussions on the energies that manifest by the elements through weather and natural terrain. Certain times and places simply “feel” more magickal than others, and while there are energetic causes behind this, they tend to go unrecognized. Historically, mystics observed different effects under varying natural conditions and this lore comes to use in the New Age as magickal timing (using the Moon, Sun and planetary influences).
Grimoires and archaic ritual texts frequently specify the timing of the operation or events that must coincide with it (e.g. an equinox or solstice). The ritual then continues with the wizard doing something in the visible realm to affect the energetic vibrations via the invisible realm. In essence, the wizard does something “here” to affect something “there,” appearing as though remotely manipulated like a screen and keyboard, but in truth “here” and “there” are entangled as one.
SO…WHAT ABOUT THE TRADITIONAL “GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON”???
According to standard Babylonian/Mesopotamian tradition and as famously described in the Simonian Necronomicon, there are seven “planetary” thresholds encountered when the shaman or wizard is “rising on the planes” of the Ladder of Lights, or “Stairway to Heaven” – a form of “initiation via the Astral Plane.” This is comparable to the “Rising on the Planes” (or aethyrs) of Enochian Magick. It is also understood, much as displayed in other kabbalistic models of metaphysical cosmology, that access to a very real Gate or Door to the “Other” is concealed within the system. However it may be accessed directly, one things is for sure: This is the very “magic” for which BABYLON was named for!
