Within this book you will find many things. You will find essays on magick and how it works, you will find writings on ancient mythologies and how they correlate to modern myths, you will find a template magickal system, you will find answers to some old questions, and you will find new questions. The making of this book has been a progression. What began as a short essay on Aeonicks, has sprouted into a short book on many varied topics, all with one common thread: magick.
There is but one prerequisite to reading this book, which is the understanding that there is no known "one true god". The existence of IHVH is a concept which could only be a god thru the methods of creating a godform, widely known thruout chaos magick. Creating a godform is the concept that if enough people believe something exists, then it does, thru their will. This concept has also been touched upon by Rev. Wharg0ul of the OEF, as the 'Sphere of Influence'.
There will be things in here you may disagree with, things you may laugh at, things you may be amazed by, and things you may already know. Regardless, take it for what it is: a compilation of studies and examinations. Do I believe that a diety is some anthropomorphic force running around visiting people's evocation rituals? No, not one bit. I believe deities are forces that may or may not contain sentince.
With those things said, on to the book...

Enlil + Ninlil = Utu, Nanna
Nanna + Ningal = Inanna, Ereshkigal, Nergal, Utu
Enki + Sirtur = Dumuzi
.Marduk/Dumuzi was called Adonis. Adonis is eerily close to Adonai, a Hebrew word referring to YHWH. It is clear from this that Marduk is the Hebrew god whom Lucifer rebelled from. In Babylonian mythology, Nergal worked with Marduk at times as Erra. Nergal is also an Underworld god, who it is thought may have at one time resided in heaven. This would fit the tale of Lucifer's fall quite nicely. Nergal also fits the defintion of Kuthulu "man of Kutha", as Nergal's principle city of worship was Kutha. It is quite possible that Irra, an underling plague-god of Nergal, is Pazuzu. This would put Pazuzu directly under Lucifer.
As you have probably ascertained, this book is a presentation of both Sumerian Demonolatry, Self-Deism, mythology-based magick, and the links between them. Alot of things began at Sumer... the very first city, Eridu; the first cuneiform writing; etc. It is the birthplace of many things and a culture very advanced for it’s time. Cuneiform was developed in Uruk, another Sumerian city. The deistic pantheon developed in Sumer is the foundation for most religions today. Even the Holy Bible, its book Genesis was directly from Enuma Elish, the Mesopotamian Creation Epic; and the Sumerian shepherd god Dumuzi (the Babylonian Marduk) was obviously a template for the Judaic IHVH, and the Christian Jesus. The culture has even had a profound contribution to modern demonolatry. The deities Pazuzu and Humwawa combine to make Asmoday, Inanna was called Astarte in Egypt and evolved into the demon Astorath. Many things like this make Sumer an important vital piece of deistic history. it is because of this, that we honor the “most ancient of days” with the mini-system of magick based largely on Mesopotamian mythology and culture. The influence Sumerian culture has had on me should be quite obvious in my writings, and the flavor of the Abzu rings long and hard into my soul. Venture forth knowing that this is my shrine to the “most ancient of days”.
.A Comparison of Corresponding Deities
Luciferi (Latin), Pluto (Greek), Nergal (Sumerian), Erra (Babylonian), Maslamtaea (Semitic Mesopotamian), SMAL (Hebrew)
Ereshkigal (Babylonian), Allatu (Sumerian), Laz (Sumerian), Proserpine (Greek), LYLYTh (Hebrew), Hel (Norse),
It is the opinion of the writer that not all of the Mesopotamain/Sumerian deities carried over, though with the amount of demons listed in such books as the Goetia, the Psuedomonarchia Daemonica(?), the Grimoirium Verum, etc., it is a possibility. Though most of these may have been so utterly changed beyond recognition, comparison would be impossible. Still, it is the job of this chart to relate as many as possible to each other, so I shall do my best with what I have, as we all do.
Deities are real. Simple enough... Well, then, what is a deity? Is it a guy with horns and a pitchfork running around poking everyone? Is it some old, beard man with a cane walking around on clouds? Only in the eyes of the imaginative believers in these. What a deity actually is, is a sentient and variably intelligent force of energy. The descriptions given by such grimoires and books as 'The Goetia', 'The Simonomicon', etc. are just the perceptions of the people who called these forces... which originally came from stories and such used to describe them. Example: the Abzu of Sumerian lore is described as the ocean, a great "sea below all seas" that is primal and houses the underworld. Well, Abzu is their word for the primeval force from which all things come from. And the easiest thing to compare energy to is water. The greatest body of water is then used to describe the greatest force of energy in their system of belief.
There is a force behind everything. All matter is compressed energy. All matter contains energy... That's what holds the molecules together. Even if it's just kinetic and potential energy, it's still a force. Thought and sentience are from electric impulses in the brain. Electricity is a form of energy. Does that make us deities? Depends on the veiwpoint, but I suppose we could be viewed as deities in physical form, but the point is that deities can have thought, varying intelligence, and sentience. This is what makes these forces of nature deities.
Marduk, Tiamatu, Uruku, Namtar, Ereshkigal, etc. These are all names of Sumerian/Babylonian deities. Do these words hold power? Only to the user, his/her intent and the will behind it. The power isnt in the words but in the will put forth through them. The energy put into the words to call out to the force you desire. The names were titles used to describe these forces. The names of Sumerian deities are all made up of pre-existing Sumerian words put together to describe the forces/deities.

.Mythology Vs. Deism
mythology, the collective legends of a particular culture
History shows a consistency of various cultures applying somewhat humanized stories and fantasies to the gods they worship, the very forces of the earth. Some even go so far as to apply such things as marriage, rivalries, and ‘good vs. evil’ concepts to their deities. This ‘good vs. evil’ was used to place blame on the misfortunes of a culture on “evil spirits”; and good fortune accredited to “heavenly spirits”. Their homes were assigned to the “underworld” (ki, Sumerian) and the “heavens”(an, Sumerian) which, physically, were symbolized as being beneath the earth and in the sky, respectively. Also, the gods of certain forces were often described as either being the forces they command (ie. Utu, sun; Nanna, moon) or living within them (ie. Kur, underworld).
The mythological aspect of these gods existed in the forms of heroic tales of everything from creation to vegetation. Tales such as Marduk slaying the great mother-serpent Tiamat (Babylonian), and Gilgamesh avenging the death of his servant, Enkidu, by slaying Huwawa (Sumerian), show the usage of peril and heroic adventure to give praise to the gods they worshipped, or may serve as a code to actual human events (ie. Jesus and the early-AD ‘Peace Party’ political rallying). The consistent and abundant use of these stories as a way to communicate and familiarize the gods with other, similar, peoples. What the tales represent, if anything, remains a mystery of time and died with the ancient scribes and bards of the times they came from. Some choose to literally believe these stories to have actually occurred as they were written, rather than question the validity of them as literal pieces. These people shall be addressed later in ‘Mythological Deism’.
Funk & Wagnalls Standard Desk Dictionary (Harper & Row, 1984) defines deism as, “belief in the existence of a personal god, based solely on the testimony of reason”. So, what is a god? What is this reason? My personal view of a god, which is shared, somewhat, by some demonolators, is a cohesive mass of energy which possesses sentience, self-awareness, and varying intelligence. These three qualities are all intangible electric impulses in the brain thus making them energy and capable of being pieces of a cohesive mass of energy. Deism, simply, is the belief that the aforementioned spirits exist. This is, argueably, the very core of demonolatry. The word demon comes from the earlier ‘daemon’, and the Greek ‘daimon’, meaning, “divine being” or “divine power”. Demonolatry, being the worship/belief of these “divine beings”, is merely a fancy version of Deism, also the worship of and/or belief in the spirits. Once you strip away the mythological fantasies; pure, raw, Deism is a logical state of awareness to be in. It offers no redemption, forces no laws, and asks nothing of you, save basic awareness of it; unlike other cultures and belief systems which require you to adhere to strict laws and rules, pay dues, and offers false redemption.
Mythological Deism is the result of applying mythological tales, dogmatic laws, and other such things, to the belief in the existence of deities. Good examples of this are Christianity, Odinism, and QBLHism.
In Christianity, there’s a belief in this man, who supposedly lived in the early AD period, who was the “Son of God”. He was purportedly executed by the Romans on their ‘cross of shame’ and subsequently rose from the grave. The man, Jesus Christ, was said to have performed amazing acts of healing which were referred to as “miracles”. It is said he was a prophet as well, predicting the end of thworld, which they called the “Apocalypse”, in the book ‘Revelations’, contained within the second half of their doctrine ‘The Holy Bible’. This second half was known as the ‘New Testament’, and is a collection of various texts pertaining to this man.
All in all, mythological deism is for those who need some fantasy in their lives, and are apparently not satisfied with simple Deism. The “fear of god”, commonly associated with these religions, seems to be a symptom of paranoid schizophrenia. This could possibly be the true source behind these dillusions of mythology. Though an illness, schizophrenia has made for some interesting, and often times entertaining, fiction over the past 7 millenia.
In conclusion, the skptic cannot deny the possibility of deities, and the experienced cannot deny their existence. The possibility is self-evident and, if one’s mind is kept open, encountering one is almost inevitable.
The act of the ritual is simple and there are two basic types. The two basics are as thus: 1. making a request to a certain spirit or deity, which involves either invoking or evoking the spirit or deity and then outputting the emotion for the request, or 2. sending the energy to the person directly through means of extreme emotional output such as masturbation, self-mutilation, laughter, crying, etc. to influence the person towards the goal.
When a ritual requesting something of Lucifer is commited, it is basically sending the emotion you evoke to him to do one of three things: put forth the will of Ab-Zu to make this request come about, call upon legions or specific spirits to carry out the request, or to carry out the request himself.
The main basis and continual factor behind all of this is emotional output. The release of energy by ths is essential to the success of the ritual. Emotion, feeling, will... all forms of energy, which is that which makes up your spirit. Within your vessel of flesh lies energy, which is called soul, spirit, chi, ka, feeling, emotion, sentience, etc.; and that is the key to ritual success.
This essay is meant to be basic in its construction to allow one as much space needed to utilize the template for personalization. Normally, I would not feel the need to state this beforehand, but there is an amusing but often unproductive trend on occult and satanic related websites these days that demands this statement's inclusion: the need for preconstructed rituals. Though some of these “to-the-detail” ritual templates can be helpful, they leave little or no room for personalization, one of the very msot important things in a ritual. It must come from you to be the utmost fruitful. With that all said, here is the guide.
The first thing you need is a purpose. There is no point in doing a ritual just for the sake of doing it. It is not something to practice, it's something to utilize when needed. A tool, not a show. Common purposes are: Love, Protection, Lust, and Destruction. The majority of these listed are with a positive polarity; while destruction falls into a negative catagory. Many will tell you that these come back on you and karma will come for you. This is generally false and only true if you believe it to be so. When you project energy believing that it will come back on you, you are assigning yourself to the goal as well as the intended target, thus pulling it back on yourself. The main reason I'd assume this comes from would be the inclusion in many cultures of god-fearing and the stripping of nature's laws of survival. Ignore this, for the only true laws are that of nature.
The second thing to consider is method. The most basic consists of a depiction of your target and you doing whatever is neccesary to project the feelings and energy upon that depiction. Other more common practices include Evocation and Invocation. Evocation is channelling your energies to force a spirit into a specified area and thus commanding it to carry out your goal. It can be commonly found in Goetic and Enochian texts. Invocation is channelling energy to call a spirit to where you are and asking it to carry out the request. The ways of going about this vary from person to person and should be entirely up to you. I suggest reading be done on all methods before deciding what you would like to utilize and how you would go about it.
Here are some things to consider for a ritual.
Location - Where would you like to carry out your ritual? It is said often that a quiet place where you will absolutely not be disturbed is best, as concentration and focus are vital to a successful working.
Setting/Mood - This should be defined by the goal. Whatever assists in attaining the maximum output of emotion pertaining to your goal is best. Incense, Candles, Music, and Oils are all commonly used.
Well, I hope this could be of some use to the newcomer and even give maybe a bit of insight or grounding to the adept. Always remember, you have to want your goal to happen or it won't.
.CONCERNING THE LANGUAGES
Enochian - Hebrew
Though the main language used by the peoples of ancient Sumer is Sumerian, there was another language that they used. It was there principle magickal language... and it came to be stolen and taught to a band of nomads... they were given a twisted version of a mixture between Sumerian beliefs and Enochian teachings... and who knows what else was the motivation behind the teachings of self-hate that began when the Enochian language was perverted into Hebrew. This is to illustrate a possibility that links the oldest of religious beliefs to the modernly popular demonology/demonolatry beliefs.
- Cuneiform is developed over time
- Enochian is "discovered"
Mid Sumer/Early Judaism
- hebrew is developed from a language resembling one the priests and kings of Ur used
The Sumerian languages were developed over time...
and while their civilizations were being built
and thrived upon...
the priests of Sumer heard spirits speak...
and the language they spoke was Enochian...
but what they scribed was not altogether correct...
no, it was different in ways and sounds slighty...
it was stolen by a Sumerian theif and taught
to a band of nomads he discovered...
it was to be known as Hebrew...
Was speaking this language wrongly what has caused all of the suffering the Jewish people have been wrought? Did they speak things in this broken Enochian that offended deeply the spirits around them? It would seem from history they angered something... or things... enslavement, holocaust, current nazism... ...egypt, hitler, kkk... three eras of abuse... and what is to be next for this pursecuted people? Perhaps the TRUE law of threes(the triad cycle) will apply and they will repeat the trinity of pain over and over again throughout time. Perhaps somehow they will break free from this cycle... of course with the help from others...
All began in chaos. Apsu, whose seas were chaos, was all. Then, out of Apsu, arose Tiamat, the great mother, "she who fashioneth all things". And so the story goes, that which has been told billions of times of the Enuma Elish, the "Creation Epic". Well, the principle language of the aeon after that was Hebrew, and came from this first aeon. The Ancient Priests of Sumer spoke a language... one that they thought they had correct. They were speaking what they thought the "angels" were speaking... imitating it. They held this as a sacred language. It became to be known as Hebrew. Then, one day, a man stole this language. He left Sumer and taught it to a band of nomads... thus the Jews were born and the end of the Aeon of Chaos was birthed. In the second aeon, much happened to damper the animal natures of man. To enslave him to YHWH's will. It was near the end of this second aeon that the true origin of this stolen language, Hebrew, was discovered... Enochian... a similar language said to be spoken by the "angels". One with power in its very words. One that was claimed to be barbaric, yet was very advanced.
It is said that when Lucifer left heaven, upon his entrance in hell, he discovered a female like him... one whom he consorted with. She came to be known as Lilith... We'll call her Ereshkigal. She is the goddess of the underworld and rules side-by-side with Lucifer. Through this union, many succubi and incubi were born. Thus, the legions of Hell thrived! And the other fallen ones consorted with human women, making Nephilim. And through all of these unions, the legions of hell thrived on earth in the flesh as well.
And soon the new aeon is upon us and these very legions are preparing to destroy YHWH, as his time has ended...
This is how the story would go if you were to mix different elements of deitism such as Sumeriology, Demonology, and Christianity.
And so you have it, a good representation of how various mythologies can be applied to this system and it’s workings. There is a mix between classic-demonology and Sumerian Mythology to create a nice smooth flow. In this book, you will see alot of this type of thing mixed in with various writings and rituals. The purpose of this inclusion is to mix in some “glorious fantasy” and add some liveliness to it. No full well, I do not believe that there really were guys with horns and pitchforks poking everyone.
.A VARIATION OF THE ENUMA ELISH
All that was the ABSU was chaos. in it's time it was all.
In the beginnings of the aeon of chaos, all was but the
seas of absu and absu spoke that none were before him
and he was before kia and anna and before ia and io and
before all. the god of gods, for he was what they were.
then the serpent came from the seas and she was TIAMAT.
for all that is male must have female and all that is
female must have male - such is a riddle of chaos for
it is a form of balance, order, peace... but how can a
thing of chaos be of balance, order and peace? the answer
is not of the riddle but in the riddle. It is the con-
fusion wrought on by the riddle that is a piece of chaos.
the contradiction that does exist is a fragment of the
chaos. And TIAMAT and ABSU were waters as one. And from
them came others, children but wrought of the same of
themselves so truely they were extensions. Of these
children came opposites of the ABSU and TIAMAT who were
come to be knownst by their peoples as the Elder Gods..
they were loathesome to the ABSU so he rose to slay them.
Great battle was and ABSU was slain. This enraged TIAMAT
and she created HUBUR, whom would make legions of beings
for war with KINGU at the command. The Elder Gods made
a warrior known as MARDUK to slay these children of the
underworld. Great war again was waged and MARDUK slew
the children of hubur. it was then that the beings of
ABSU, who came to be knownst as the Ancient Ones, fought
MARDUK and were slain one-by-one by the fifty powers
bestowed upon him by the Elder Gods. Then all that was
left standing of the ABSU was TIAMAT, fierce serpent.
They fought and MARDUK severed her head making solid
her head and air her body. He then created the people
whom would worship the Elder Gods with him at reign.
He created them with his own breath and the blood of
the leader of the children of HUBUR: KINGU.
And through the times, the ABSU was the realm of the
dead, of the void, of the chaos, of the outside, of
the sleep. And it was inhabited by the children of
the underworld and the dead but dreaming Ancient Ones.
And then a moment came when Nergal, son of Enlil and Ninlil,
broke away from the reign of Marduk!
Deciding Marduk was negligent to his people, Nergal
left the heavens for Ki-Gal, the underworld, where he
then married the daughter of the full moon
And so it was the times were and they are past and
ABSU sleeps along with it's many tentacles. For
they are all one. The sleep came not from defeat
or death, but it was time for the Aeon of YHWH..
An Examination of The Names of Various Important Sumerian Deities
ABZU (the primeval source... Da'ath)
zu=wisdom, knowledge, to know
conclusion=sea of wisdom
IGIGI (entropy, those who see and observe... Qlipoth)
gi=to surround, be siege, to lock up

KUTULU (lord of the deep and initiator of dreams... Leviathan)
conclusion=sleeping dark one
SABITU (the seven wind-gods of Tiamatu... Harpies)
sa=to call by name
bi=to utter a sound
conclusion=to call by name the exorcism or conjuration
note: "sabitum" is a Sumerian musical instrument
ERESHKIGAL (the queen of the underworld... Lilith)
conclusion=great scented house of the earth
NERGAL (the great lord of the underworld... Samael)
conclusion=the great lord
ANNUNAKI (the 7 dread judges of the underworld, rebel watchers... fallen angels)
conclusion=children of heaven on earth
abzu broken down is ab-zu which means “sea of wisdom” or “sentient sea”
The Abzu is the primeval source. It is everything. Trey Azagthoth referred to it as the Living Continuum. It is all and not. Everything is sustained by energy in some form or another. It is what holds the very molecules together in our bodies and everything around us. It's the electron, the neutron, the atom, the cell, the molecule, the energy holding them together as well as them themselves. Thought, form, motion, motionless, kinetic, potential, creation, destruction. The Sumerians personified it as a god who is the sweet waters of the ocean, but it is more. It is Apsu, the sweet waters; and it is Tiamatu, the bitter waters. Its Kia-Ama, and Absu. It is belief and it is disbelief. Happiness and anger, emotions, and emotionless. States of being and of nothingness. When Enki was referred to as the lord of the seas, it was not that he ruled Abzu, but that they were trying to get across that he was lord. He was not a water-god (en=lord, ki=earth), it was that he was a lord whom they worshipped as The Lord. They said he ruled all and Abzu is all, so he was referred to as lord of the seas. There are theories, mainly by S. Kramer, that Enki is a misspelling and the actual name was En-Kur, which would make him the Lord of Kur. The myths of Kur are that of the slaying of the dragon. One has Ninurta burying Kur under three rocks to make a giant mountain over him. Ninurta then dubs his mother, Ninhursag, “lady of the mountainhead”, the Queen of this mountain. Within this mountain lay the Ki-Gal. The Ki-Gal, literally meaning “great below”, was the underworld. Thisis where Abzu comes in, mythologically. Within Kur was the serpent and the great waters known as Apsu. In another story, Kur is called Mt. Ebih, which is an actual physical place in the northeast district of Sumer. In this story, it is Inanna who slays the dragon for not paying worship to her. The gender change has confused many a researcher. With Babylonian Mythology, Apsu, is seen as being a partner to Tiamat (the equivalent to the Sumerian Nammu), rather than coming later. He was slain by Marduk and laid to rest within Kur. The Sumerian Kur was said to have held the Apsu waters in check, and during the battle with Ninurta these waters flooded the lands, causing much famine. In Babylonian lore, it was Marduk (Sumerian Dumuzi), not Ninurta, who slayed the dragon. The one constant with the Abzu is the underworld-waters concept. It is said to be a layer of sweet waters beneath the salty waters of the seas.
The Black Flame is a modern term for a timeless concept, that being both 'wisdom of the gods' and 'vitality'. A good essay detailing some background on the Black Flame can be found in various places on the www, entitled 'Origin of the Black Flame, by Tani Jantsang'
The Black Flame: the light that casts no shadow, wisdom
Da'ath: the abyssous sephira, knowledge
Me-Gal-Gal: the great mighty knowing gift
This is the product of the "sea of wisdom", the Me-Gal-Gal, the Living Continuum, the gift of Ab-Zu. It is received through our heart, Da'ath, the producer of our very lifeblood.
The lord of this gift, the dispenser of the wisdom...
Kutulu: (Lovecraftian)"sleeping dark one", initiator of dreams
Nergal (Sumerian) “great watcher”, lord of the underworld
LVYThN: (hebrew) lord of the raging sea
Lucifer: (greek)"light-bearer", lord of enlightenment
KRNZN: (enochian)lord of the abyss, lord of da'ath
Nyarlathotep: (lovecraftian)messenger of the underworld
Thoth: (greek) the messenger of the gods, lord of wisdom
Tahuti: (egyptian)same as Thoth, primeval chaos
Yes, all different names for the same deity, the Dingir-Zu, En-Zu-Gal, the I AM of the Most High Triumvirate. The Black Flame is given from the Ab-Zu to the recipient through the Da'ath. It is wisdom, knowledge, instinct... it is all these things. The gift of Ab-Zu. It, metaphorically, casts no shadow therefore illuminating all and hiding nothing. It is the flame of truth, in that sense. Some could see Kutulu as being one and the same as Nergal, but, comparing to Hebrew associations, this is incorrect. Kutulu semingly comes from the Sumerian root Kutha-Lu, meaning, "man of Kutha". Kutha was a city where Ereshkigal and Nergal were principly worshipped, also associated with the Underworld (Ki-Gal, "great below"). This translation is how many of the academics and practitioners concluded that Kutulu is Nergal. A closer look at the corresponding Hebrew deities shows different. Kutulu is very often identified as being one and the same as the Hebrew LVYThN (Leviathan), while Nergal corresponds to the Hebrew SMAL (Samael); thus presenting them as two different deities. In a monarchial sense, "man of Kutha" could either place LVYThN as under Lucifer (SMAL, Nergal) or as a fellow "man of Kutha". The correlation between Nergal and Lucifer is explained later in 'Lucifer Falls In Sumer'. For the purposes of this section, I will leave the association of LVYThN being Lucifer as it is.
1 KUTULU(Sumerian "man of Kutha") LVYThN(Hebrew) LUCIFER(Latin “light-bearer") KRNZN(Enochian) NYARLATHOTEP(Lovecraftian), the harnessor of the will of Ab-Zu, the messenger of the great Living Continuum, the everything that is everything.
2 AB-ZU(Sumerian "sea of wisdom") ThHVM(Hebrew "primordial force") OUTSIDE(Lovecraftian) the will, the wisdom, the force of all things, the energy behind everything, the all and not, primeval source.
3 NAMMU(Sumerian "mother of earth and water") AMA-USUMGAL-ANNA(Sumerian "great heavenly mother dragon") TIAMAT(Babylonian equivalent) GODDESS(Wiccan)the creator of all from Ab-Zu, the mighty female serpent, the earth mother, the one who made all fromthe energy and will of Ab-Zu, the primeval creator, the bitter waters, the primordial ocean.
These are the three parts of existence, the source from which all things came.
Ab-Zu was the materials, the will/energy/force that was all there was...Kia-Ama was the second, the creator from Ab-Zu, she who made the all... Kutulu was the third, the one who harnesses the will, the force of Ab-Zu... I AM I WILL I CREATE
The earliest proven mentioning of Kutulu is by Aleister Crowley. His Great Beast as represented in "CTHAH 666". The word Kutulu can be defined two ways...
Kutha-Lu: "man of Kutha"
Ku-Tu-Lu: "sleeping dark one" or "man of the sleeping dark"
This is from the spelling presented by the "editor" of the Necronomicon under the moniker "Simon" (in referance to the biblical figure Simon Magus). There are many varied spellings of Kutulu, such as Cthulhu, Cthhuhhlhu, Chutha-Lu, etc. The meanings are varied and the origins of most seem to be shadowed, leading me to believe that it all boils down to one source. The two possibilities present in my mind are Kutulu and CTHAH. Though I havent seen Kutulu in any Sumerian tablets to date, it seems like the most feasible option. The Crowley inception of the word may have evolved from this, as he did show interest in Sumerian culture. This would place CTHAH as the man of Kutha, the principle city where Nergal, the Sumerian underworld god, was worshipped. Some say that Kutulu would translate to “Kutha man” making “man of Kutha”, Lukutha. Either way, the meaning is clear. The Greek word Cthone refers to anything of the underworld (ie. 'Cthonic'). It is quite possible this is where Howard Phillips Lovecraft derived the name 'Cthulhu' for various stories.
There are many outlooks into who or what Kutulu is. Some think it is just a large serpent/squid in the ocean, others see it as a deity. I, personally, go with the deitistic view of it, comparing it to the Hebrew deity LVYThN(Leviathan), the Enochian deity, KRNZN(Choronzon), and the Lovecratian deity Nyarlathotep. The harnessor of the great will, the Mighty Living Continuum called Ab-Zu by the Sumerians. The force that wills it.
.Lucifer Falls In Sumer
There is a Babylonian tale titled 'Erra And Ishum', translated by S. Kramer. It tells of the underworld king Nergal deciding that the king of heaven, Marduk, is negligent. He decides to attempt a taking of Marduk's throne, against the warnings of his companion Ishum. This is extremely reminicent of the Judaic 'Fall of Lucifer', in which Lucifer, among other angels, decides IHVH should not be the one and only god. A battle ensues and Lucifer, along with Belial and others, are sent to the underworld. From there on, they are known as "Fallen Angels" and "demons". The origins of the word demon are straight-forward. Older forms of the word, such as Daemon and Daimon, mean "divine power", or "divine being". Over time, Judaism reversed the meanings, claiming they were "evil spirits". This was most likely an attempt to draw people away from the older gods, leaving them to worship only Judaism. Nergal translates as "great lord", and Lucifer is "light bearer" or "light bringer". The definitions vary from each other, but the associations from the stories of the two cultures show the relation clearly.
"Lady of the mountainhead", one would think that this would imply a correspondance to the earth element, rather than fire, but the deity known as BilUrSag suggests differently. Bil Ur Sag, "fire of the mountainhead" or "lion-headed one" suggests that "mountainhead" isnt meant literally so much as in reference to a being with alot of power. in Sumerian culture, mountains were used in reference to mighty deities (ie. Kur, corresponding to Kia-Ama). Bil Ur Sag literally could be a reference to a volcano and its erupting lava, "fire" coming from the head of the mountain. If a mountain signified a powerful deity, one could only imagine the significance of a volcano. It's with this that I raise the possibility of Ninhursag being a dormant volcano, or the goddess thereof. Maybe the keeper of BilUrSag or related to it in some sense? Either way, it looks to be related to the head of a volcano, with BilUrSag being the lava within...held in by Ninhursag....
In the Ninurta version of the all-too famous dragon slaying myths of Kur, once Ninurta had lain to rest Kur, he piled three rocks upon her, thus holding the waters of Apsu in check. After this was all done and over with, he called upon his mother, Ki, and dubbed her the queen of the mountainhead, Ninhursag, and ruler of Kur.
.THE WICCAN CONNECTION
Though claiming to be centuries old, and from the beginning of time, it seems now that WIcca began circa 1960’s. When started, the followers took elements from various Celtic, Mesopotamian, and Pagan sources. It seems, at times, there is also a strong Crowleyan influence. Judging by the time period in which it was started, with the ever-present women’s movement and feminism on the rise, it would make sense that the female aspect of the two currents often described as the Red and Black dragons of Chinese lore is the one to recieve the highest amount of worship. Later “New Age” influences then became present and has helped evolve it into what it is today.
In Wicca, there are two main deities commonly worshipped: male & female. the masculine force and the feminine force... the feminine is easily identified to Nammu, the mother of all...the primeval serpent. The male force, however, is debatable as to his origin. He is known as the "Horned-One". Some say that he is Nanna, the Sumerian mon-god; and others will debate that he is Kingu, the warrior-god and Sumerian consort of Nammu. This would make more sense, as the Horned-God was seen as being the lover/consort of the Goddess, whom is the feminine force woshipped in Wicca. Also, the Horned-One was a god of death and that particular cycle, and Kingu, according to many Sumerian and Babylonian creational epics, was slain by Marduk and his blood used to make man. Thirdly, Wicca commonly gives much more attention to the female aspect than the masculine aspect (thus destroying a sense of balance), which may reflect Kingu's status in the Sumerian pantheon as a lesser-known deity. The philosophical practices of Wicca and the silly "Law of Threes" have no real known bearing in Sumerian culture, and most likely originate from a later post-christianized Celtic tradition, as Wicca consistently tries to recreate Pagan-Celtic traditions, but seemingly fails in that sense, acting more in a Christian manner, and acting in fear of the magick they practice.
annunaki broken down is "an" "nuna" ki" which means
earth children sky
(as annuna is "children of an" which is heaven)
"The South Wind
An Immeasurable Open-Mouthed Dragon
A Grim Leopard
A Terrible Shibbu
A Furious Wolf Who Knoweth Not To Flee
A Rampant ? Who Marches Against God And King
A Storm, An Evil Wind Which Takes Vengeance"
they are the feared eternal judges of absu whom are of the earth and sky and judge these things, in the times of absu. They are the great watchers of the sky chamber and they are the true watchers. These were the Nephlim, and they remain to this day within the race of humans... the herd race. They were called Anakim Nephlim by the hebrews and so Annunaki are Nephlim. (see The Nephilim in Introduction) This is an old Akkadian tablet that has a Sumerian counterpart. It is believed the story's origin is very very old..
'DESCRIPTIONS OF "THE SEVEN"
Destructive storms and evil winds are they,
A storm of evil, presaging the baneful storm,
A storm of evil, forerunner of the baneful storm.
Mighty children, mighty sons are they,
Messengers of Namtar are they,
Throne-bearers of Ereshkigal. 
The flood driving through the land are they.
Seven gods of the wide heavens,
Seven gods of the broad earth,
Seven robber-gods are they.
Seven gods of universal sway,
Seven evil gods,
Seven evil demons,
Seven evil and violent demons,
Seven in heaven, seven on earth.
Neither male nor female are they.
Destructive whirlwinds they,
Having neither wife nor offspring.
Compassion and mercy they do not know.
Prayer and supplication they do not hear.
Horses reared in the mountains, Hostile to Ea.
Throne-bearers of the gods are they.
Standing on the highway, befouling the street. Evil are they, evil are they,
Seven they are, seven they are, Twice seven they are.
The high enclosures, the broad enclosures like a flood they pass through.
From house to house they dash along.
No door can shut them out,
No bolt can turn them back.
Through the door, like a snake, they glide,
Through the hinge, like the wind, they storm.
Tearing the wife from the embrace of the man,
Snatching the child from the knees of a man,
Driving the freedman from his family home.'
.THE DREAD IGIGI
Entropy... that is all that would be said of them... they are whom see and observe... they see all and they watch all. None who cross them will survive, for they destroy all. It is said that The Abominations of the Four Spaces are of IGIGI.
Now, the word IGIGI is interesting in how it's formed. two G's mix evenly in with three I's... Almost like the G's are seperating the I's. It doesnt suprise me that the I's are three, they are the mind, body, and soul of Entropy... Entropy maybe symbolized by G and the I's represent the Law of the Trapezoid applied to it?
On a gematrical note, I is the 9th letter of the alphabet, a strong number who's base is 3. G is the 7th letter, representing completion. The ONA sees 7 as the chaos number, it being the destroyer of 6-the hexagram. They consider it akin to Crowley's "accursed" Tenth Aether, where I am sure entropy comes into play. Though this is a fairly distant relation, it still exists and cannot be ignored.
The IGIGI are referred to as "those who see and observe". Watchers then? In Sumerian mythology, they are the counterparts/rivals of the Annunnaki. Might they be the watcher of the gate in which the "ancient ones" lie? The word IGIGI directly translates to "the surrounding gate", which would make sense. In some tales, the Igig were commanded to dig canals by the Annunaki, and in others they were enemies, rather than servents.
The IGIGI is the will of entropy. It's said by some that the IGIGI is just beyond the heaven-spheres. It is refered to a wasteland, and considering the meanings behind it, that makes sense. So upon conclusion, the IGIGI is the pure spirit of wastelands... of entropy... of anti-production. The true negative spirit. It is entered through the hidden sephira, Da'ath. The very abyss... the heart that pumps our lifeblood.
The Seven QLIPOTH And Their Hebrew Names
ThGRYRWN / ZOMYAL (Tiphareth-ThPARTh)
ORB ZRQ / QTzPYAL (Netzach-NTzCH)
QLYPWTh (Qliphoth) means "shell". IGIGI means "surrounding wall". With this comparison of Igigi to Qlipoth, it seems as if the Igigi would be the Tree of Life, but no. Alas, it is the Tree of Death, where the shells of life have gone, through the Da'ath. Therefore, the IGIGI is the land of Death, the reverse side of the Tree of Life.
Before i begin i will point out that nephilim is hebrew for "giants" and nephlim is hebrew for "beings fallen".
The Nephilim are the children of the Nephlim and human women. Nephlim is another word for Anakim. Anakim is strangely close to the Sumerian Annunaki. So the great Nephilim of lore are the children of the mighty dread judges of earth and sky the Annunaki, ministers of the underworld. The great fallen rebel watchers, et al. These are six different names for the Nephlim, one of which translates to sumerian Annunaki.
Rephaim, Emim, Anakim, Horim, Avim, Zamzummim
The Anunnaki were feared by gods. These were seven dreaded judges of Absu whom knew no equal save for the most Ancients of Ancient Ones, as the Annunaki were the dreaded of the Watchers whom waited beyond the gate for the time when all Absu will sleep, when YHWH will sleep and when they rule. During this time of YHWH, they are known collectively as Satan, for they all accuse YHWH of injustice and so on. They are the accusers soon to be the rulers... a just rule, a strong rule. And that time is very near... Could the Annunaki then be known as Lucifer, Belial, Abbadon, Azazel, etc? After all, Nephlim means "fallen beings" and these were the 'fallen angels' of Judaic lore. These Nephlim, these Anakim, these Annunaki... were they then the heirs to the underworld and the earth when the Aeon of the Black Earth came to it's end? Of these things one can only guess . . . .
Cro-Magnum Human was an exceptionally larger human with their brain cavities enlarged as well. Could these be the Giants known as Nephilim? Children of the Nephlim ...of the Annunaki and humans, who might have been around at the same time. Why dont these offspring live on in history? Well, being known as the the nephilim could be a possibility. All fiction, myths, etc. have roots in truth.
The Abzu, all whom were one who is but pure chaos.
- the force that is many but one -
YHWH, slave deity above whom enslaves humans for his gain.
- the light that blinds from truth -
Annunaki, monarchy of watchers whom shall rule in the next aeon.
- monarchy led by Lucifer for wisdom -
The Book of the Sea of Wisdom
.Forms x Abyss
Ab-Zu. ab = “sea”, zu = “wisdom”. The Sea of Wisdom. This is the all: the will, the force, the energy, the power behind everything. The subtle energies within you and in every bit of space. The great, mighty forced in volcanos, hurricanes, and other forces of the Earth. Energy. Sumerian
Da’ath. The Sephira of wisdom and nothingness. The place on the Sephiroth (Tree of Life) in between Tiphareth (projection) and Kether (completion). It is the invisible Sephira which is numberless. Peter Levenda called it Arzir, “---”, the gate to the wastelands of Igigi, “surrounding power”, the Qlipoth, “shells” (Tree of Death). QBLHistic
Black Flame. The enlightenment. The light that casts no shadow and illuminates all. The symbolic fire of wisdom from the Latin light-deity, Lucifer. The very dreams and guidance. The soul. The light which exposes lies and shows truths. Luciferian
These are all different versions of the same thing. The three names are from the three Aeons of man: Developmental, Judaic, Post-Judaic. Ab-Zu is a Sumerian term referring to the primeval source, often described as an ocean. This is ironic because they existed millenia before any modern theorums of evolution were developed, where everything evolved from oceanic life. The Sumerians thrived from approximately 6000BC to roughly 200AD. Da’ath is a Hebrew word which is used to signify the abyss. The Hebrew culture and its later evolutions, Christian and Catholic, thrived from around 500BC to 2000AD. The concept of Da’ath comes from an ancient Hebrew text known as the QBLH (Kabballah). It is a place on the Tree of Life. The Black Flame is an English term used to denote the wisdom of the Earth, shattering lies. English/American culture has thrived since roughly 1000AD - 1776AD and continues to grow today.

A Sumerian Demonolatry Magickal System.Parasu Abzu Ina Zi: Dedication
This is a dedication ritual meant to call the force of the Abzu into your self and to dedicate yourself to that very primeval source. Do not commit to this unless you are prepared to deal with the very source of all things, and know that you can be consumed by the chaos which it holds. Like anything else, don't commit yourself to it unless you know you want it.
incense, candles, and an altar (for preparation)
sword (for rite, to project energy easier)
set your altar up how you would for any preparation rite. use the purification ritual of your choice. meditate on your view of the Abzu until you feel almost at one with the feeling. then, you may proceed outdoors (a field would be best but anything available without disturbance will suffice) to where the rite will be.
under the dark moon at approximately 3AM, draw your
sword and proclaim:
"ia abzu! ehu zi xul!"
invoke the feeling you attained in your preparation.
"zi dingir abzu ehu kanpa!
ia zu zu ki
ia zu zu lil
ia zu zu bil
ia zu zu a
ia zu zu zi
zi uruku peta
abzu ehu peta kanpa!
abzu erib kililbila!
abzu erib kililbila!
abzu erib kililbila!"
cut yourself in a place of your choosing, being sure
the wound is not fatal or will cause serious injury,
as the better health you are in, the less you will
have to concern yourself with your health and the more
you may concentrate on the ABZU itself. Say:
"Through this letting of my lifeblood, I prove my
dedication to the very source of all things!I am your
vessel, through me thou shalt do thy will!"
wipe blood onto blade of sword, then slam sword into
the ground shouting:
and do not banish this rite for it would defeat the goal.
The shout "IA ABZU" is your closing to the rite.
.Abzu Ina Ga: Self Invocation
This is a small invocation for the purpose of invoking the primeval force into your being. This would make a good thing to invoke upon awakening in the morning (or at nighttime, depending on your schedual).
ehu abzu ina me lu istu ina zu sa mum ina

.Kunuk Abzu: The Year-Long Rite
The format in which you choose to do this rite is up to you. The personal reccomendation of this tome is either on a beach or in a field. Some place untouched and undisturbed. The best time for this rite is around 3:00AM, as that is the time of the least amount of distractions or psychic activity. The opening should remain the same, but deities may be added to it, pending they are not in confliction with the ones already here. The openings should be preceeded with the Abzu Ina Sumannu Xul, and this rite should not be committed to if you have not done the Parasu Abzu Ina Zi.

And also your day of birth should be celebrated in similar fashion, giving praise to yourself and dedicating that day to yourself. If your birthday falls in between February 2 and March 21, you should commit your closing ritual on that day. If it does not, then you should close the Kunuk Abzu on the Candlemas. This is the rite:
Take all paper materials used, such as seals, sigils, requests, ashes, etc.; and wrap them in a piece of parchment, folded tightly and neatly.
"In the nameof the mighty Nammu and the mighty Apsu, I close this ritual for your days be mighty!
Ia, Ia Nammu! Zi-zi a-gal-gal! Hul Nammu!
Ia, Ia Apsu! Zi-zi a-gal-gal! Hul Apsu!"
While saying this, pour wax from candles used in this ritual onto the folds and ends of the paper, fully sealing it tightly. Use as much wax as is neccesary. then, slamming your hand down on the wax to tighten it shut, scream:
Wrap the seal in a black cloth and store in a safe, undisturbed, place.
.Ehu Mitu: Destruction
First, you must assemble your tools (knife, dagger, or sword; a candle; a piece of parchment; and something representing your victim). Choose a time and place where you will not be disturbed. Open the rite with the purification or preperation ritual of your choosing. Now, you invoke the spirits of destruction...

may (s)he feel my wrath this night!
Now you take the item representing your victim and desecrate it in any way possible. You may spit on it, hit is, urinate upon it, cut it, etc., so long as the energy you put towards it is negative. Be sure to put all of your hate and negative emotion into it, visualizing the person you are doing this to suffering immensely. Visualization is an important factor here. You need to make yourself believe that these things are actually happening to the person.
Once you have let out all of your rage, it is time to seal the rite. To do this, you must create a sigil for it.
A simple and commonly used sigil creation method, is to write down, in the language of your choice, your goal. You then eliminate the repeating letters. Once you have done this, overlay the letters on top of each other. Then customize it to how you feel it should look, from that template. Once you have your sigil, you must charge it. The method i use most, is masturbation. You masturbate and once you reach climax, channel all of your energy into the sigil, concentrating on the goal. When you have the sigil ready to seal the ritual with, keep it in a safe place, away from the eyes of others, until the rite.
To seal the rite, dig a hole in the ground approximately 1-3 feet in depth. Place the item you defiled, and the sigil inside of it. Pour wax from the candle over the items in the hole until they are completely covered, while chanting:
so now i seal you to your fate
suffer for all time, zamanu....
Once this is done, fill in the hole as if it had never been there. Make sure it is hidden as such no one will discover it, lest your enemy find it and return your favor by sending the curse back unto you.

.Ia Salamu: Protection
First, you must assemble your tools (a candle; a piece of parchment; and something to offer for protection). Choose a time and place where you will not be disturbed. Open the rite with the purification or preperation ritual of your choosing. Now, you invoke the chosen spirits for protection...
ehu salamu ga
ehu salamu ga
come forth, mighty n.
show unto me your kindness!
protect me from that which would hurt me!
bind those that would do me harm.
i call you n.
come forth surround me!
Now you take the item you will use to sacrifice and place it on the ground. Place your sigil of protection from the spirit you have chosen (see below for creating the sigil) on top of the sacrifice. Then, let out all of your fear, or whatever other emotions go with your need to do this, vocally and into the sacrifice. Once you are at your climax of emotion and feel there is no safe place in anything or anywhere, visualize the spirit surrounding you, comforting you, making you feel safe and invincible as nothing could harm you. Feel this as strongly as possible and for as long as possible.
Once you have finished, it is time to seal the rite. To do this, you must create a sigil for it. A simple and commonly used sigil creation method, is to write down, in the language of your choice, your goal. You then eliminate the repeating letters. Once you have done this, overlay the letters on top of each other. Then customize it to how you feel it should look, from that template. Once you have your sigil, you must charge it. The method i use most, is masturbation. You masturbate and once you reach climax, channel all of your energy into the sigil, concentrating on the goal. When you have the sigil ready to seal the ritual with, keep it in a safe place, away from the eyes of others, until the rite.
To seal the rite, dig a hole in the ground approximately 1-3 feet in depth. Place the sacrifice and the sigil inside of it. Pour wax from the candle over the sacrifice until it is completely covered, while chanting:
may the strong earth
protect me in from harm
ia ki - salamu ga
Once this is done, fill in the hole as if it had never been there. Make sure it is hidden as such no one will discover it, lest an enemy find it and use it to harm you, thus leaving you open for attack.

The Middle Pillar
This is meant as a guide to my views on the Sephiroth and where they came from. The associations used here are things that either the Middle Pillar represents, or things that represent it. These are symbols of concepts behind certain forces.
Sephira: association, physical function, body part, deitistic representation, planetary correspondance
Kether: merging the affairs, computation, head, The Triumvirate, Uranus
The top of the middle pillar and the entire Sephiroth itself, Kether is often called the crown of the Tree of Life. It is with this i associate it with the head. The head is the CPU of the body. Everythign recieved is there processed. Thought, emotion, and many other things are done here. The brain is the core of the Central Nervous System and where all things are put together and associations are made, as well as conclusions. Its deitistic representation as the Triumvirate is from the purpose of the Triumvirate, not its parts. The
Trapezoid is used to put together the three main forces and concepts of life: I Am, I Will, I Create. Therefore, the Triumvirate is used to represent the putting together, the processing of the other pieces into one whole.
Da'ath: knowledge affairs, reception, heart, Abzu, Milky Way
The abyssous sphere on the middle pillar represents wisdom and knowledge according to many QBLHists. The planetary attribute of this sephira is the Mily Way, the abyss of the sky, the star-covered black void... the galaxy in which we live. What we see in the sky is a stream from the spiralling abyss-like galaxy our Solar System resides in. The functional association of recpetion comes from the heart, the bodily representation. We recieve emotionally and via random thought the wisdom of the Abyss. The aforementioned association with the heart is for the blood that pumps through our veins, the energy in which the heart is the source. It is one of the most important organs of the human body and is a part of both the musculatory system and the circulatpry system. Blood feeds our muscles, skin, brain, etc. The Abzu is the abyss, the source of all and nothing. It literally means "sea of wisdom". The association of knowledge is the understanding of how things work and the forces of this planet.
Tiphareth: magickal affairs, projection, solar plexus, Lucifer, Sun
Tiphareth represents the solar plexus on the human body, which is the spot just under the sternum. Many people associate this with astral projection and the like. The deitistic association with Lucifer is the projection of will, or wisdom. Lucifer is the "light-bringer" or "light-bearer". Lucifer is also associated with the morning star. Many attribute this to Venus, but the star most repsonsible for morning is the sun, which brings me to the planetary association, the projector of heat and light. The representation of magickal affairs has mostly to do with the other associations with Lucifer and projection. When you commit an act of magick, you are projecting your energies to a specific goal.
Yesod: artistic/creational affairs, creation, genetalia, Tiamat, Moon
Yesod represents the attribute of creation. There are many theories about how the moon came about. One theory of many scientists is of another, smaller, planet nicknamed Orpheus which collided with the earth. From this collision was made a revolving mass of molten rock. Before it cooled, a globlet of it emerged and began cooling within what was to become Earth's orbit. This cataclysm is what scientists believe caused the Earth to evolve as it did, making it possible for life to be created. That is why I associate the Moon with creation. The body association of the genetalia with creation is obvious, as these parts collectively cause the creation of human life. This process is known as procreation. The deitistic representation of this sephira with Tiamat(Kia-Ama) is attributed to her role in many creational myths as the great mother/creator of everything. As for the association of artistic affairs, when you commit to an act of art, you are creating something. Other than procreation, it is the most commited act of creation.
Malkuth: earthly affairs, grounding, feet, Satan, Earth
This Sephira represents the attributes to earthly affairs. To master this, you must master your earthly affairs, such as survival, attainment of desired material or emotional goals through strictly "human" methods. The usage of Satan as the deitistic representation is meant to represent rebellion from the strict inhibiting laws of the purely christian and catholic society; to go and acheive these goals without and hindrance from false ethical and moral codes. Grounding yourself is connecting your energy to that of the earth's. This can be achived through meditation at first and concentration later on. the body part association of feet is in reference to the part of your body that is most constantly on the ground.
.The Gates Of Chaos
A Guide To Gates And What They Are
This section will show you how to access and open certain gates pertaining to chaos. What is chaos? Chaos can be seen as many things, ranging from randomness to energy. We are going to use it in referance to energy, the Abzu, in this section. Opening a gate to the Abzu is different than merely invoking it, and is just the opposite of evoking it. In evocation, you are calling up a deity or force into a contained or specific area of your designation. When you open any of these gates, you are doing just the opposite of that. You are bringing yourself to a predesignated area or state of perception. You are calling upon the thin veil between what we percieve as reality, and a whole new aspect of it, to break. It can have strong mental repurcussions if not done correctly. Though I personally am not fond of using protective methods such as “casting a circle”, I will provide one here. This method will employ the basics behind “casting a circle” but will be modified to fit the rite. One note of warning, never just jump into this kind of rite. Always think it through beforehand, and make sure it is appropriate. Another important thing to remember for this and other rites, make sure you will NOT be disturbed. Having someone walk in on a rite can throw it all off balance and cause serious damage.
.Casting The Circle
First, fully relax yourself. You will need to really concentrate for this. Take a piece of chalk(salt, sand, flower, or anything noticeable will do) and draw a double-circle big enough for you, and whatever else the ritual requires, to fit inside of. In between the two circles, you can write any seals or sigils you feel comfortable with. Anything that will help you feel protected or strong will do. Words, such as names of deities or descriptions of protection, would suffice. This being Sumerian related, one may wish to write, “barra zamanu edin na zu”, which roughly means, “begone, hostile ones, go to the desert”. Once you have the circle done, cleanse the room once and inside the circle three times. This will help lessen the chances of any malevolent forces breaking the balance. to cleanse it, you could walk around with a cleansing incense such as sage, while invoking positive energies in the area. Once this is all set, you will be ready to “cast the circle”.
Step within the circle you have created. You may be sitting or standing. Relax yourself and face to the north. Call to the north, “Zi Dingir Ki, Kanpa! In the name of the Abzu, I call forth the spirits of protection to gaurd and strengthen this circle! Ia Abzu!”, to the east, “Zi Dingir Lil, Kanpa! In the name of the Abzu, I call forth the spirits of protection to gaurd and strengthen this circle! Ia Abzu!”, to the south, “Zi Dingir Bil, Kanpa! In the name of the Abzu, I call forth the spirits of protection to gaurd and strengthen this circle! Ia Abzu!”, and to the west, “Zi Dingir A, Kanpa! In the name of the Abzu, I call forth the spirits of protection to gaurd and strengthen this circle! Ia Abzu!”. Then, once you have your directions called, you may want to take a moment to find your full focus, before you begin the rite. You could, at this point, also choose to call upon a personal patron/matron deity to assist in protection and ensure further your own safety. Be sure to remember, when doing these rituals, the only god who can break through all of the circles and protections you have set up is with yourself: Fear.
.Setting Up And Executing A Gate
Iak Sakkak, also known as Azkak
Azkak is thought to be the gate to Azag, a very chaos oriented deity. This gate has a very strong element of fire to it, Azag being the destructive aspect of fire and Azkak being the creational aspect. This gate may be useful if you want to get further in touch with primeval chaos.
To create and open this gate, one would need to create a setting. First, if you visualize a gate as a literal doorway, it would be good to either enscribe/draw the life-sized depiction of the gate on a wall, or to obtain a door and mark it with the gate’s appearance. Then you must somehow incorporate the dominating element pertaining to the gate in question.
Once you have your setting, it would be good to leave the room or area for awhile and let it settle. Once you feel the time is right and you have you personal ritual written up, go into the room and set up. A good way to do this would be to utilize standard ritual devices such as incense, music, etc. It is then you commit your ritual for the gate. What happens then on is a very personal experience which varies from person-to-person.
Some important things to remember are: using sigils and any personal markings on the gate to enhance the output of energy to it, charging the gate with your own energies to create and open it, be careful as most gates are psychological aspects of yourself being opened up and may have profound mental and sometimes physical effects if done wrongly or irresponsibly.
