The Ancient Art Of Gate-Walking!

 “The Gates refer to the process of self-initiation contained in the NECRONOMICON. This is a useful Spiritual Guide for those involved in any form of occult self-initiation” (excerpt from the Necronomicon Spellbook)

Some critics claim that Simon made up the Gate-Walking Initiation Rites. Others claim that these rites are based on Western Ceremonial Magical practices. Many people who use the Simon Necronomicon, may work with some sections of the book, but find the Gate-Walking process of initiation a little to difficult to understand. Let us take a deeper look into the source of the initiation process, as described in the Simon Necronomicon, and compare it with the initiatory rites of antiquity. We will begin our comparison by first looking into the origin of the word “initiation.”

Wikipedia offers us the explanation as to the origin of the term:

“The English word derives from the Latin, initium: “entrance” or “beginning,” literally “a going in.”

The term “initiation’ refers to moving from one condition to the next, or an entrance, ‘a going in.’ An interesting perspective of the origins of the term initiation, is given by Dennis Chomenky, in his writings on Freemasonry entitled; Initiation, Mystery, and Salvation: The Way of Rebirth, he states:

“The term “initiation” comes from the Latin word initiare, which is a late Hellenistic translation of the Greek verb myein.  The main Greek term for initiation, myesis, is also derived from the verb myein, which means “to close.”  It refers to the closing of the eyes which was possibly symbolic of entering into darkness prior to reemerging and receiving light and to the closing the lips which was possibly a reference to the vow of silence taken by all initiates.  Another Greek term for initiation was telete.  In his Immortality of the Soul Plutarch writes that “the soul at the moment of death, goes through the same experiences as those who are initiated into the great mysteries.  The word and the act are similar: we say telentai (to die) and telestai (to be initiated).”  The fact that myein means “to close” and its translation, initiare, is derived from the earlier inire, which means to “to go in” or “to begin,” further suggests that a notion of endings and beginnings was inherent to the ancient understanding of these terms.”

Interestingly, the author quoted above gives reference to Plutarch’s work, Immortality of the Soul, where it states that the soul at the moment of death goes through the same experiences as those who are initiated into the Greater Mysteries. This information gives us further insight into some of our previous articles concerning the Qliphothic Tree. It shows us that the ancients held the opinion that in order for one to be initiated, they must walk through the path of the dead while alive and through this experience a ‘transformation’ occurs.

The Simon Necronomicon gives us the tools we need for initiation in the Book of Entrance, or one might say the Book of Initiation. These Qliphothic initiation rites are described in the Simon Necronomicon on pages 37 through 38. We are told that the Zones above the Earth are seven in number. The Mad Arab also distinguishes the workings of the Spheres in the Simon Necronomicon, which are Qliphothic in nature, from the modern working of the Judaic Kabbalah, as he mentions on page37:

“which Zones were known to the ancient races that proceeded them among the lost temples of UR. Know that these Zones are governed by the celestial spirits..”

The fact that these Spheres are references to the Qliphothic Tree can be determined by a previous passage written by the Mad Arab on page 5:

“For this is the Book of the Dead, the Book of the Black Earth, that I have writ down at the peril of my life, exactly as I received it, on the planes of the IGIGI, the cruel celestial spirits from beyond the Wanderers of the Wastes.”

We can see that the Mad Arab received his instructions from the ‘cruel’ celestial spirits, or those that are Qliphothic in nature. The Mad Arab also mentioned that he ‘traveled beneath the Seas, in search of the Palace of Our Master.’ The Mad Arab’s journey, beneath the Seas, refers to the farthest reaches of the land of the dead. The above information shows us that the workings of the Simon Necronomicon follow the ancients’ rites of passage that we discussed previously, are Qliphothic in nature. The Initiate takes the same path that the Soul does when a person has died in order to destroy the false self, which is acquired by inappropriate attachments to the phenomenal world. This false self must be destroyed in order for true initiation to take place. It is a key in understanding the ancient path of true initiation and transformation was indeed Qliphothic in nature, since these ‘negative’ forces were used to destroy the false self acquired in the phenomenal world.  This is why some of the ideologies offered in the New Age Movement are nothing but eye-candy. The New Age Movement continues to offer these foolish ideas that ‘initiation’ is a ceremony that gives one a membership into an occult organization, If the ancients depicted there gods as having completely benevolent and evil natures, then the initiates who were to serve as Priests and Priestesses of these forces had to learn both aspects. This ideology of being an occultist and only working with the so-called ‘benevolent forces’ is a sign of one being self-disillusioned by the phenomenal world around him and also shows that the individual still has some latent addictions to the religious influence of the Abrahamic faiths. The Simon Necronomicon is an excellent path for those who would seek initiation into the Greater Mysteries in the same manner as the Ancients did. It should be noted that the Simon Necronomicon is one of the few occult systems that is completely free of the Judaic-Christian dogma, even Enochian and Solomonic Magic fall short in these areas. The Satanist may laugh at some of the Christian’s beliefs, yet the Satanist still identifies himself with a Christian god, who exists merely to serve the almighty god’s plan.

Earlier in our discussion the following was quoted by Dennis Chomenky:

“In his Immortality of the Soul Plutarch writes that “the soul at the moment of death, goes through the same experiences as those who are initiated into the great mysteries. “

 Leonid Lar mention in an article concerning the Nenets Shamans:

“At the time of initiation a young shaman experiences the “physical destruction” of his body, which the spirits take apart. For a few days he lies “dead”, until the spirits put all the parts of his body back together. The encounter with death is a key moment of the shaman’s initiation. Next the initiate receives a “new body” and is reborn to a new quality. During the initiation ritual a young shaman receives new supernatural qualities, which allow him to move fast in the space and time and allow for transformation from one state to another. According to the stories told by shamans Yaptik and Mandakov they “were dead” for three days, did not eat or drink anything.”

It is interesting to note that the Nenets people are spoken of in the Simon Necronomicon on page 7:

“I have raised armies against the Lands of the East, by summoning the hordes of fiends I have made subject unto me, and so doing found the NGAA, the God of the heathens, who breathes flame and roars like a thousand thunders.”

Here it speaks about the god NGAA, which is derived from the god NGA. NGA is the god of death. Wikipedia offers us this brief history concerning NGA:

“Among the Nenets people of Siberia, Nga was the god of death, as well as one of two demiurges, or supreme gods.

According to one story, the world threatened to collapse on itself. To try and halt this cataclysm a shaman sought the advice of the other demiurge, Num. The shaman was advised to travel below the earth, to Nga’s domain and call upon him. The shaman did as told and was wed with Nga’s daughter. After that point he began to support the world in his hand and became known as “The Old Man of the Earth.” In another myth, Num and Nga creates the world, collaborating and also competing with each other — the myth is an example of dualistic cosmology.”

The initiated had to walk, to a lesser or greater extent, into the world of the dead in order to be reborn. Some have foolishly stated that the Gate-Walking process was not part of any ancient system from Mesopotamia, but a Western Ceremonial Magickal working. The first mistake in critiques such as this one is that the Simon Necronomicon is Qliphothic in nature, and that in itself keeps it far from Western Magical practices, as they are not Qliphothic. Secondly, in Chaldean (ie Babylonian) astronomical lore, Cancer was called the ‘Gate of Men,’ the entrance point for souls seeking incarnation in human bodies. Capricorn was called ‘the Gate of the Gods’ by which souls passed into Heaven. The entrance point (initiate) was the Gate of Men, which was another name for the constellation of Cancer, is ruled by Nanna (the Moon). This is the first Sphere in the Gate-Walking Process as mentioned in the Simon Necronomicon. The constellation of Capricorn is called the Gate of the Gods. The ruler of Capricorn is Ninib, which is the final Gate mentioned in the initiation rites of the Simon Necronomicon. This shows us that the initiatory rites of the Necronomicon Tradition are perfectly aligned with the initiatory rites of the ancient world

Albert Pike explains this astrological hogwash in Morals & Dogma:

“The Galaxy, Macrobius says, crosses the Zodiac in two opposite points, Cancer and Capricorn, the tropical points in the sun’s course, ordinarily called the Gates of the Sun. These two tropics, before his time [Aries], corresponded with those constellations, but in his day [Pisces] with Gemini and Sagittarius, in consequence of the precession of the equinoxes; but the signs of the Zodiac remained unchanged; and the Milky Way crossed at the signs Cancer and Capricorn, though not at those constellations.

“Through these gates souls were supposed to descend to earth and re-ascend to Heaven. One, Macrobius says, in his dream of Scipio, was styled the Gate of Men; and the other, the Gate of the Gods. Cancer was the former, because souls descended by it to the earth; and Capricorn the latter, because by it they re-ascended to their seats of immortality, and became Gods.” (155:437-8)

These are just a few points to illustrate the uniqueness and authenticity of the Gate-Walking initiation rites, as outlined in the Simon Necronomicon. It is an intense journey, but for the serious occultist, the journey is the reward.

    Hi, I have been reading your blog and I find this very interesting. I have a blog about Chaos Magic and I think your texts would be very useful for spanish – speaking Magicians. I wanted to ask you if you give me permission to translate this article into Spanish. Greetings!

    1. warlockasylum says:

      I sent you an email.

  2. I found this blog and I have a lot to say about it. I am now understanding that I was doing a self initiation into something I didn’t truly know about. As I am drawn to descriptions of different demons and entities, I’m learning the truth of my experience. Which at first I thought was ‘hell’. Nothing stands out more than the ideas of being torn to pieces and then put back together, as well as reading this necronomicon and reading of beings that like to stretch themselves like CHAINS. This was re-occuring as I sought to be like them, and allowed myself to be stretched by these chains in a distorted and horrific way in order to prove my loyalty and ‘love’ for this beings.

    As time went on these beings became darker, older, and more horrific. But I always had the light of unconditional love, and submitted thinking I was doing a ‘mission’ for the ‘pure love beings’ being a living sacrifice in an effort to allow these beings to REMEMBER from where they truly came.

    I’ve done this without any help, and I’m just NOW (after 8 years) reading this necronomicon and it’s all making ‘rational sense’ for the first time! I was going through a self initiation, and the kundilini experience was just the start. I felt beyond all of these rituals and ‘magick’ because these were learned things based on human visual ability, human language, time, ego, and sight.. therefore I’d felt I’d moved into a realm of communication beyond these, thus providing myself with the confidence in truly realizing and consciously viewing this experience with my rational mind. Previously thinking I was in trance, or that I’d given my conscious body up to a demon and that my ‘soul’ was embarking on these journeys.

    Eventually it lead to a strange light love and oneness with these beings outside of time…and viewing a time when these beings would appear to man, or some men doing rituals. What was most strange/exciting was the fact that it took me almost eight years to be able to ‘view’ these beings without completely losing my mind, crapping myself, and dying of shock. I knew this, and when I finally met them… I felt like I was one with them (or something), but the other ‘humans’ who were there were terrified to the point where they were pretty much paralyzed with fear. Swallowing their tounges, and sometimes vomiting.

    I’m sorry this comment is so long.

    1. warlockasylum says:

      Comment freely at whatever length you like

  3. shdwbtwxtanglz says:

    Would I be able to begin the gate-walking process at any time, or should I wait for a specific time of the year, like during a certain stellar/planetary conjunction? I have not yet begun to read “Gates of the Necronomicon”, but what I am reading about it suggests their is a schedule for gate-walking that makes it more effective. Is this correct? Also, how frequently should I walk the gates?

  4. I think I can answer this one. Following Simon’s schedule will definitely yield good results as it is astrologically correct. Generally, I Walk on or around the full moon as that is when my energy is highest (this is especially important with the NANNA Gate as NANNA is associated with the Moon) In all actuality, you can Walk at any time & will still get the experience & the initiation into the current of each particular Gate.

    You generally spend between a month to two months in a Gate & then you are ready for the next one. This time varies between individuals as each of us have different issues to relate to that the Gate brings to the fore.

    Hope this helps.


  5. As addendum to my last comment, watch out for when a planet goes retrograde. At least in the beginning, try not to Walk a Gate whose planet is in retrograde as this can sometimes produce a harrowing experience. If you look at it this way, a retrograde is when a planet is purging & working through its own issues, kind of like a woman’s menstrual cycle & being in a Gate has a similar effect on the Gate Walker; put both together & it could theoretically get a bit crazy.

  6. shdwbtwxtanglz says:

    Thanks for your response, swordofmagan!

    Another question I have is about the preparation for the walking, not “spilling thy seed” for a month. That is pretty direct. What confuses me is the option to “worship and the Temple of Ishtar”. The Temple of Ishtar seems to be a kind of sacred brothel, where women serve as representatives of the goddess and men serve as representatives of the god, so their congress is sacred and thus allowable during the 30 day prohibition. I am understanding the meaning correctly, or is it simply that other sex-acts can be engaged in as long as you avoid ejaculation?

    I have “gone without” for 30 days in preparation for the walking, but have never fully understood the meaning of the option offered by the Mad Arab.

    1. warlockasylum says:

      It is a reference to the workings mentioned in the Book of Callings pages 110-111, whereas the male Initiate sacrifices semen to Ishatar while reading the Preliminary Purification Prayer. it is a more complex rite, but in the beginning it is good to keep it simple.

  7. shdwbtwxtanglz says:

    Is this performed while in coitus, as one approaches orgasm? I know that the question may seem a little crass, and appreciate your indulging my curiosity.

    1. warlockasylum says:

      Some have made this conclusion and it seems to work. However, I have always thought of it as where the male fluid is sacrificed at least once a month.

  8. Do you know anybody who has ACTUALLY transited the rites and / or walked through a gate?

    1. warlockasylum says:

      Yes..I have Walked the Gates and actually there are a lot of people who are going through the steps of initiation and others are sharing what they learned. Some work in private.

  9. Dean Allen says:

    Where do I learn more about “Gate Walking?”

  10. Hi Dean,

    Warlock Asylum mentioned to me that you were interested in finding out more about Gate Walking. I have recently completed my initiation into the system & the Tradition. If you are interested, I would be happy to discuss the subject with you at greater length as well as mentor you through the initiation process if you decide you are interested in becoming a candidate.

    In brief, Gate Walking is a system of initiation found in the Simon Necronomicon that attunes an initiate, on one level, to the energies of the seven classical planets in astrology; namely,Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, as well as the Moon, & the Sun. As you may know, each of these heavenly bodies represents certain qualities & they exert control over those qualities within us. This is in fact what spurred the creation of the science of astrology as a means to chart the movements of the stars & planets & how they affected human beings.

    On another level, the Gate Walking initiation awakens one’s energy centers; what are referred to as the “Major Charkras” in metaphysical thought. Each of these chakras corresponds to one of the five planets, as well as the Sun & the Moon. Each chakra also relates to a certain part of your being & awakening these to their full potential is part of the initiation process.

    If you are interested in discussing this further, please contact me at my email:

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  11. I just started reading Simon Necronomicon and am ready to start the rituals, but as you state above for a beginner the book is difficult to understand. Do you have a document (for a beginner to this tradition) on all rituals and how to perform them that you are willing to share? If so can you please e-mail me at or point me in the right direction?

    Thank you and great wen-site.

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      Thanks for your interest in the Necronomicon Tradition. One of our staff members will send you an email shortly. Stay blessed!

  12. Hello, I am interested in walking the gates of the Zonei. I have had a copy of the necronomicon for sometime now, and wish to venture forth, and learn about myself, and to better understand the forces around me. I am a little worried about it however and of its correct procedures.

    I do know that I am ignorant of walking the gates and I have read some of the articles on this site, as well as reading the necronomicon. I am curious if one must be strict in their following of the rituals involved in gate walking or if concessions can be made, i.e. “correct moon phases”, “fasting”, “spilling seed”. etc?

    Thank you for your time,

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      Thank you for your thoughts. There are concession that can be made. However, there are also things that must be observed in the rites. You will receive an email shortly from a Pratitioner of the Necronomicon Tradition. I will expand on these in an upcoming post shortly. We really appreciate the time that you have taken and expressed interest. Stay blessed!

  13. Hi Derek,

    Please shoot me an email at describing yourself and your experiences in the occult.

    I would recommend to stick by the book as much as possible, at first. As you develop a relationship with the DIN.GIR you’ll know where you can be slack as far as restrictions go.

    Concessions could be made on fasting, spilling the seed, and even walking on any moon phase, but one would have to think *WHY* would that be put in the book in the first place. There is wisdom in following those restrictions.

    When one walks, they go into Universe B. Within Universe B, the Full Moon shows as an opening. The sky would appear white, an inverse of our night sky. A ceremony of the Walking during a Full Moon tends to manifest more positive experiences. Walking on a waning or New Moon tends to manifest more negative experiences. Walking on a Full Moon ensures we are built up first before dealing with the negative aspects of that particular Gate deity.


  14. Nathan Delawder says:

    Hi, I’m knew to the Necronomicon path and was wondering if walking the gates is an astral experience.

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      Most gate-Walkers employ the rites through ritual, in lack of a better word. it is good to have you along.

  15. Well, Mr. Delawder when you engage in Walking the Gates you will have astral experiences as well as experiences during full waking consciousness. And believe me when I say that those experiences can be quite intense! 🙂

  16. Nathan Delawder says:

    Thank you Nightcaller 🙂 I recently started and am going through the purification right now.

  17. That’s really great! you are in for an extraordinary journey! 😉 If you need advice or have any questions just feel free and ask.

  18. benjie ranoa says:

    good evening.
    i am uninitiated to all these. can someone help me for starters. i am for human enlightenment only. thanks.
    please send me emails for first timers here. although, I brought my necronomicon book 18 years ago.

  19. So what exactly is it like walking through a gate?

    Describe the experience for the uninitiated.

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      Your senses and awareness is heightened with the procession of the celestial bodies. Over time, the inittiate is able to view their thoughts and desires separate from ones true being.

      Different gates correspond to different aspects of life, but the experiences is founded on some basic principles and how we interact with the energy.

  20. Samantha Cham says:

    Hello, I haven’t started the initiation yet mainly because I have been concerned about walking the gates properly. I was under the impression that you have to go a full moon cycle between each gate, but someone had mentioned above that this is not necessarily so… that it depends on the initiate. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? I’m pretty confident that I’d know when I was ready to move on to the next, but I wasn’t sure if there was a strict rule of waiting at least the full cycle.

    Also, am I being too meticulous about this preparation? Are there any pointers you can give me on starting this process? I believe it’s basically out of respect that I want to make sure I do this correctly. Respect of the tradition, and success obviously. Thank you!

  21. Jonah Martinez says:

    I’m ready to beginning the walking of the Gates. What experiences have you had during your personal adventure? I’m very curious. Email me if you could.

  22. This is my first post after a couple of days reading, It’s being quite an experience coming from a different website and reading about exopolitics for a couple of months, going to the Mayan Prophecies, going to different cultures like the Hoppis, all this interesting reading lead me to Simon Necronomicon in another website, it was a vague explanation about the book, some hoaxes and a few information about the 50 names of Marduk. This caught my attention because it’s been a really difficult year for me, finally I was thinking more and more about this interesting book, without having any clue about the importance of it, and without having a copy of the book itself I was able to find this website and I have read different articles and I would like to continue reading, I’m interested in starting to read about what you mention at the beginning of this article… “Now that we have discussed the Three Seals of MASSHU in detail”, but I’m not able to find the article for this and I would like to request your help.

  23. I’am very interested in the gatewalking process, I have a copy of John Dee’s translation of the Necronomicon. While reading, immediately I saw the connection between each of the Gods’ gates and our seven major chakras. In this book the initiate goes through each gate with their corresponding chakra in this order: Third eye, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral, Crown chakra, then the Root chakra last ruled by Saturn. The eighth gate is ruled by Yuggoth which suggests that this and the ninth gate is off limits if unguided by one of the Gods, or at least I think it does. A lot of the book is unclear to me so I could be wrong, the Mad Arab was indeed.. mad, but his madness is wisdom to me, although there should also be caution with following his madness, in my copy he instructs on how to make ‘Space Meade’ which sounds a lot like crystal meth or somewhere along those lines. Anyways, the unclear part of the book to me is how the gate walking process actually works, Iam pretty sure that when you walk its completely astral but who knows, Ive no idea how to set up a gate or even properly prepare myself for it, can someone please elaborate on this for me?? I would very much like to innitiate myself in this ancient tradition.

    1. Dear Michael, the book you possess is also part of my library and this book is incorrect!!! You need the Simon Necronomicon!! The Dee book you are talking about contains parts of Simon’s work, but the Dee version does not name the correct gods!!

      Please be advised!

  24. Okay, yeah the Simon Necronomicon’s instructions on gate walking are much more clearer, and Dee’s version actually leaves out the Incantations! Simon’s version also leaves out some major details like the actual symbol of the Watcher, it only instructs to write the three sigils of Masshu, but what about the Watcher’s Glyph? Which I think is important, Dee and Simon list the exact same Gods but Dee leaves out two Gates for some reason, the only difference of the two books are detail in instruction, and Symbols. In my copy of the Necronomicon published in 1586, the drawings of the Gates look as if the Zonei actually drew them. Simon’s seems to be more modern and western like with his sigils. I know nothing of the facts this is just what it seems to be, both books can be insufficient with lack of knowledge. Ill just experiment with both and see how it goes!

  25. You should at least read Gates of the Necronomicon and read the books in the Simon Necronomicon bibliography.

  26. Dear Michael, the Simon Necronomicon clearly describes the Three symbols of MASSHU.

    “Of the three carved symbols, the first is the sign of our Race from beyond the Stars, and
    is called ARRA in the tongue of the Scribe who taught it to me, an emissary of the Elder
    Ones. In the tongue of the eldest city of Babylon, it was UR. It is the Sigil of the
    Covenant of the Elder Gods, and when they see it, they who gave it to us, they will not
    forget us. They have sworn!
    Spirit of the Skies, Remember!
    The second is the Elder Sign, and is the Key whereby the Powers of the Elder Gods may
    be summoned, when used with the proper words and shapes. It has a Name, and is called
    The third sign is the Sigil of the Watcher. It is called BANDAR. The Watcher is a Race
    sent by the Elder Ones. It keeps vigil while one sleeps, provided the appropriate ritual
    and sacrifice has been performed,: else, if called, it will turn upon you.
    These seals, to be effective, must be graven on stone and set in the ground. Or, set upon
    the altar of offerings. Or, carried to the Rock of Invocations. Or, engraved on the metal of
    one’s God or Goddess, and hung about the neck, but hidden from the view of the profane.
    Of the three, the ARRA and the AGGA may be used separately, that is to say, singly and
    alone. The BANDAR, however, must never be used alone, but with one or both of the
    others, for the Watcher must needs be reminded of the Covenant it has sworn with the
    Elder Gods and our Race, else it will turn upon thee and slay thee and ravage thy town
    until succour is to be had from the Elder Gods by the tears of thy people and the wailing
    of thy women.

    (Page 12 of the Simon Necronomicon)

    Is your copy of Dee’s version an authentic manuscript, or is it a PDF version?
    Keep in mind that a PDF is very easy to forge!

    Also keep in mind that the Simon Necronomicon is not a book that should be casually experimented with! It should be learned from one who has already walked the Path.

    My regards, Dumu Abzu-a.

  27. And what about summoning, can somebody that hasn’t walk the gates still use the Simon’s Necronomicon to summon one of the 50 names of Marduk?
    I’m thinking about this, I have weeks thinking about this, I have a big promotion interview coming ahead and I would like to try summoning Namru, but I would like to know what I need to do not to disrespect this tradition as I mean not to do it for personal gain only but start reading and learning everything I can.

    I’ll appreciate any comments about this and any recommendation from someone that has the experience you have.

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      Jupiter, the planet associated with DinGir Marduk, is retrograde. maybe after January 30th.

  28. Dear Dumu. Its an authentic manuscript. I can send it to you via email if youd like. I’m just naturally optimmistic when it comes to these things, I try so hard to see what is truth, what is bullshit, what is pure, and what is corrupt.

  29. I was wondering if it is absolutely necessary to use gold for the amulet of Utu seeing that it could be very costly? And does a circle have to be drawn around the gate during the ceremony?
    In the gates of the necronomicon Simon advises one to lay on the back with the head facing north staring above the alter,if the gate is inscribed behind the alter does this mean one is laying on the inscribed gate?

    1. Dear Nelson, while using the metals to create the seals makes for a strong planetary correspondence,it is not a necessity.You can just draw them on white paper,or thin cardboard.

      A circle MUST be drawn though!!!! One opens the Gate within a closed circle, so that any entities that might come through do not escape into the upperworld. Never underestimate the power of the circle!! I have witnessed its strength and use firsthand when dealing with various demonic entities.

      As to the position of the Gate it is best to place it on the ground in the middle of the circle, with the altar in the north (but inside the circle of course). This leaves enough room to walk around the Gate. After you have circumambulated the Gate with the correct number of the corresponding deity, you can sit down on the Gate, facing north, to meditate on receiving the Word.

      My regards, Dumu Abzu-a.

    Hey Warlock Asylum et all,

    I remember the Necronomicon as the first grimoire I stumbled upon in my adolescence and later learnt more of H.P. Lovecraft, however in between then and now your material has surfaced and I’m finding myself returning to reading the Necronomicon.

    Reading the nature of gate walking reminds me of Whites “Kiss of the Yogini” where he mentions various ancient tantric texts where the chakras are described as knots in body which separate the pure from the impure worlds, originally these knots had male and female spirits which are quite inauspicious but nevertheless open and lock the knots ( or gates ) which facilitate awakening of kundalini & siddhis.

    Your work here is very interesting and I see people have corresponded who endeavor to walk the gates and I would interested in initiating the same work.

    Kind Regards
    Viperion Veneficus

  32. hello, good day, i have been using the 50 names of marduk of quite some time now, for some personal use. i didnt know about the gate walking thing..tho ive read about it before and i didnt do it because i do not quite fully understand it thats why i just ignored it till i came about this wonderful article explaining about gate walking. im new to this as well, and i would also like to make a request if there’s a beginners guide to the gate walking initiation. like what the commenter named LCF is requesting as well 🙂 so that i can have a better understanding performing this 🙂

    here’s my email : 🙂 thanks much 🙂

  33. Is anyone still managing this site? Would love to speak with someone about proper gate walking.

  34. Brandon Hutchinson (Theseus Pandemos Pandemonium) says:

    I was visited by Inanna in a waking vision and shortly after a friend who has a vodoun practice suggested that I get Simon’s Necronomicon which I did. I am reading The Gates of the Necronomicon in preparation and in anticipation of some free time which is about to clear up.
    Has anyone else had these types of synchronicities drawing them to the book? Something similar happened to me when crows guided me to a copy of Jane Roberts’ Adventures in Consciousness.
    Any advice is welcome and appreciated.
    I am a thaumaturgist in training, so I can compensate you for your time and advice in this way.
    I am also a buddha, but it’s not what you think… probably.

  35. People say that you walk the gates in the full moons, but the book says that you do at the 13th night of the lunar month. The full moon is in the exact middle of the month, which should be in the 14th or the 15th night. Am I missing something?
