On the heels of his widely successful trilogy of works honoring H. P. Lovecraft, Donald Tyson now unveils a true grimoire of ritual magic inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos. The Grimoire of the Necronomicon is a practical system of ritual magic based on Lovecraft's mythology of the alien gods known as the Old Ones.

Fans of Lovecraft now have the opportunity to reliably and safely get in touch with the Old Ones and draw upon their power for spiritual and material advancement. Tyson expands upon the Old Ones' mythology and reintroduces these "monsters" in a new, magical context—explaining their true purpose for our planet. As a disciple, you choose one of the seven lords as a spiritual mentor, who will guide you toward personal transformation.

Grimoire of the Necronomicon features ritual forms and invocations for the daily and yearly rites of the Old Ones, individual rituals devoted to each of the seven major figures of the mythos, and most importantly, a grand ritual for personal attainment. The daily rituals provide an excellent system of esoteric training for individual practitioners. This grimoire also provides structure for an esoteric society—Order of the Old Ones—devoted to the group practice of this unique system of magic.

By Mike j HughesHoward > P Lovecraft was , and always will be a shining Black Flame. Lovecraft had a way of staying upon one or more levels of the astral imagination , -long enough to create the astral shells and send them out from you , which for most ,- is the lower astral planes that may have a cloudy effort of mental thought building talents of the very elemental .
There will come a time during every occultist life wherein the vision before him .
And He must Hold Fast.
The waters receded, and now the mental body must be developed , -as well as the ability to feel and converse with the whole Human Race.
As I sit over here in Vancouver B.C where I grew up, I can meditate, contemplate , read , and if I must ......-will venture out to socialize on the ''other side''attend classes .
Lovecraft became a student of one of his Non-Human Contacts. Many of the Beings seemed to be devoid of the Love Aspect of the soul..
These Dark Beings can manipulate one-third of the Egoic Petals .
These are the Knowledge Petals, otherwise they are cold and void of all Human Empathy.
The majority of these deeply evil people have their monadic Ray upon the 3rd Ray of Intelligent Activity .
