Experiences From Those Outside of The Necronomicon Tradition: Interview With Reverend NecroWolf
It is good to see that over the past few years, The Simon Necronomicon Gate-Walker’s Info Page has become a medium for people of differing traditions and levels of occultism. Recently, I stumbled upon Reverend NecroWolf’s YouTube page, where he discusses his experiences while working with The Simon Necronomicon. Readers can see his page by clicking on the following link:
Warlock Asylum: I really enjoyed your YouTube video about working with the Simon Necronomicon, for our readers, who may not be familiar with you, how would you describe yourself?
Reverend NecroWolf: I’m glad you found the video enjoyable. As for a description of myself, I would consider myself an Orthodox Luciferian or Devil Worshiper meaning that I worship a literal entity called Satan/Lucifer. I also practice Occultism which is where the Necronomicon comes into play with my workings.
Warlock Asylum: How did you get involved with “occult” studies? Maybe you can share what specialized areas of the occult you are presently working with?
Reverend NecroWolf: I got started with the Occult and the LHP in general when I had my first experience when I was a young boy. I was extremely sick and I was bouncing in and out of consciousness and a lucid-like dream state when I remember being in this dark stone tunnel and being moved forward into differing gates with various sigils and incantations on them. After this event in my life I began to question all existence and began to delve more deeply into studies considering quantum physics and theological studies. Though it was not until I was 15 that I began formal studies of the LHP and Occultism. My specific area of study is Demons and working with them, this is what tends to take up most of my time, though I do work with various other projects such as Occult artwork and music, OTO, Golden Dawn, and Kabala workings.
Warlock Asylum: How has working with the mystical arts affected your life?
Reverend NecroWolf: It has allowed me not only the knowledge to forge my sense of existence based purely on the experiences in ritual and ceremony and it has left me in total awe of the universe and the energy and powers in this plain and beyond. I remember my mentor once told me when I was a very green neophyte, “By the same hand that Lucifer can give you grace He can also destroy all that exist, remember that when you walk into the chamber Brother.” and that still rings true to this day. Not only when you’re working with the Devil but simply working with elemental energy of the universe it can both give and destroy all and when you meditate on this it gives a very interesting viewpoint on existence. So to summarize, it has simultaneously destroyed my life and then gave birth to me again from the ashes and this an ongoing process of death and rebirth of the soul and the understanding of existence.
Warlock Asylum: How did you hear about the Simon Necronomicon?
Reverend NecroWolf: I would have to say it was thanks to Mr. Lovecraft; his stories mystified and enchanted me as a young person. After reading so much about that horrible and sacred book I did like most curious teens would do I Goggled it and found and obtained a copy, the current one I have is my 3rd edition as they have a way of going missing.
Warlock Asylum: What inspired you to make the YouTube videos about your experiences with the Simon Necronomicon?
Reverend NecroWolf: When I was a neophyte I was told to always to keep a journal of rituals and of strange happenings for further study at a later time; it helps root out coincidences. This also allowed me to share my experiences with my pupils and others, which saves me repeating myself a few hundred times, ha-ha.
Warlock Asylum: What advice would you give to the Gate-Walking Community here and the occult world in general?
Reverend NecroWolf: Patience, self-discipline, and physical training are all key to any initiatory rites be it the Gate-Walking of the Necronomicon, the rites of the Golden Dawn, or any Occult/Religious workings and study. One must steel one’s mind and body because to be frank this work is not a walk in the park. It can be downright dangerous and physically and mentally draining and devastating to people with weak constitutions of mind and body, it is also key that you follow the ritual requirements, specifically the sacrificial requirements.
Warlock Asylum: Do you think that you will ever become an Initiate of the Necronomicon Tradition? Any final thoughts?
Reverend NecroWolf: I think anything is possible to be quite honest I have studied so many things over the years and I have received a massive amount of knowledge from them all and I cannot see why the Necronomicon could not teach me something also.
In closing I would like to say thanks for the interview, it has been an honor. I would also like people to check out the blog where they can see both my write ups and the write ups of out other members and find an archive of all my videos including the Necronomicon Journal.
