It would seem that the contemporary New Age community, that is self-proclaimed as “pagan” or “neo-pagan” – “enlightened” or “truth seeking” – too often misses the point of the era shift, for they quickly replace one system for another — one set of defining parametrics for another…This necrogate.com blog post is derived and extracted from the “Hidden Keys to the Necronomicon” essay by Joshua Free, as delivered to the Mardukite Chamberlains (Mardukite Research Organization) in 2009. It appears in the current fifth anniversary 6th edition of the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE in addition to the new special NECRONOMICON compact edition and the complete Year-1 and Year-2 mega-anthology NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI LEGACY SILVER EDITION.
The divinity that once communicated regularly with the priests and sages of the ancient world left us with clues that have become reinterpreted today as either blatant fantasy or as yet another mirror of the Christianized divinity with “mythological” names and attributes.
The more effective and famously published esoteric ritualists and ceremonial wizards of the current era have not succumbed to the same when discussing matters of “gods” and “spirits”. Consider the thoughts this writer:
“My observation of the Universe convinces me that there are beings of intelligence and power of a far higher quality than anything we can conceive of as human… and that the one and only chance for mankind to advance as a whole… is for individuals to make contact with these beings.”
Quite different then the average New Ager’s perspective of the “spirit world,” discarnate ancestors and other entities bound to a book of spells, the leading members of this movement have understood that it is the contact with these specific beings, Gatekeepers to our Universe (and perhaps even our Creators as the most ancient lore would have us understand), which makes up the true and coveted magick of the ages, the very keys to our universe and material existence…
Another esoteric writer, and initiate of Crowley, suggests:
“There have been oblique and guarded references to a ‘grimoire’ containing instructions for establishing rapport with denizens of other worlds, other… dimensions, other space… For years it is no exaggeration to say that many of today’s creative occultists have been influenced, not by the presence of the NECRONOMICON but by its absence.”
What has been described as physical “Star-Gates” to some, become interpreted as “astral impressions” to others. They are essentially accessed by consciousness via the light-body journeys and astral work conducted in self-honesty. Kenneth Grant explains the purpose as “approaching the gateways, between which and humanity there exists a solution of continuity that may be transcended only by the magick of…” ‘the Mauze Zone’ — what is essentially “dream work” or controlled lucid dreaming, which is almost identical in nature to the “pathworking” or “rising on the planes” encountered in related light-body journeys of the Mardukite Anunnaki Tradition!
