Necronomicon Gate

“…the Necronomicon, a highly secret magical text released in paperback.” – William S. Burroughs.

This symbol, called the Necronomicon gate, or the”gate of Yog-Sohoth,” is a faux sigil usually found on the cover of an edition of the legendary and quite fake “Necronomicon,” a falsified grimoire based on the work of horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft.

For a more detailed look at this fabled work, see: Necronomicon, truth or fiction?

Lovecraft, is to me, on the same level of mystic knowledge as any god, or star people.

I’m amazed that so many people put so much faith into a symbol from a fictional book from fictional stories by a 1920′s horror writer.

It’s the power fiction holds over so many people (including myself, once): if I think it’s true, it’s true.

I’m amazed that so many people put so much faith into a piece of wood which a dude was (or maybe even wasn’t) nailed on.

I’m 16 which is quite young to be reading this type of stuff. But I honestly don’t care and I have an interest of this. I’ve bought the necronomicon and performed 2 rituals of my own which have worked. All you have to do is believe, follow your interests and try to keep a diary of your findings and/or performances. Leave a reply if u want more information.

Ive seen what it can do when i was 15 now I am 33 and still scared to mess with it again…….. it is one that you need to control and understand before messing with

I just god this symbol tattooed on one of my fingers not because i’m stupid, but because I’m a huge Evil Dead fan and they mention this book a lot.

#1 – I’ve been an Occultist for nearly 30 years, and have used many different techniques and combinations there-in.

#2 – If the Necronomicon is such a fake, care to explain why it has been used so effectively by Occultists all over the world?

#3 – I’m not actually suggestion its history is “authentic” mind you (although admittedly Simon makes a VERY solid argument to exactly this claim in his later books) , merely that regardless of its origins, someone got it right somewhere along the lines.

I believe the abstract quality of the lines of the stars conjoined in this circle of the necronomicon symbolizes the ease in manipulating ones reality and the importance of self-interpretation of spiritual practices. The necronomicon is a personal mythology so as to further the development of the immortally enlightened, as we all know development, even spiritual is infinite in scope.
