A Necrosophic Rite of Hellenism

This ritual calls upon four Greek divinities native to the Left Hand Path for the purpose of self-empowerment. The ritual serves to strengthen the magickal and psychic abilities of the witch and simultaneously impart an understanding both of herself and of other people. The word “lebensweg” means “life journey” in German. Mormolyttomai/Murmux is called upon by his various names. Neptune, Enosichthon, Phratrios, and Ennosigaos are names for Poseidon. Luna, Cynthia, Pasiphae, and Phoebe are names for Selene. Nasilliad, Nohzul, Sophipell, and Lilaina are invented magickal names for Scylla. Translations of foreign phrases appear in brackets. Chants in italics are meant to be chanted and names in bold are meant to be vibrated. It is up to the operator to decide for herself which, if any, ritual equipment she wants to use.


Ave Luna Noctiluca! Salve Ducis Murmux! Ayea, Ayea, Skylla! Io Neptune-Ennosigaos!
[Hail Luna Who Shines At Night! Hail Duke Murmux! Welcome, Welcome Skylla! Hail Unto Neptune-Ennosigaos]

I conjure forward the Hellenistic Divinities which preside over Self-Deification. Neptune, Mormo, and Scylla are the Acausal and Sempiternal Initiators who impart gnosis and power through Necromancy. Luna the Resplendent Titaness is the Nitid Maiden of Witchcraft and Moonlight who magnifies the spiritual powers of the sorceress and refines her psychic senses.

I call forward these Four Divinities of Esotericism and Sorcery whose gnosis engenders revelations concerning the Western Tradition of Magick. By my vibration of their myriad epithets I summon them now unto me.

Mormolyttomai + Nohzul + Enosichthon + Selene + Sophipell + Murmas + Poseidon + Phoebe + Skylla + Murmur + Neptune + Luna + Scylla + Mormo + Pasiphae + Phratrios + Lilaina + Murmux + Cynthia + Ennosigaos + Nasilliad

The mystical incantations of my tradition have caused reverberations throughout the subtle atmosphere of this place. Theomorphic presences become increasingly tangible as the ritual of summoning continues. Murmur and Neptune engender Necrosophic Initiation unto the adherent to the Left Hand Path. The Deific Emissaries of the Netherworld ascend to walk amongst the world of men. Scylla is the one who knows the true nature of the Black Flame within us all. Within this benighted ritual chamber, I slowly become transformed.

I call upon the divinities which have come to preside over my rite for the purpose of spiritual evolution. Empower my psychic senses and magickal powers, and confer unto me a subconscious understanding of my Self and fellow man. Spirits, impart gnosis of the human condition unto me so that I might navigate the labyrinth of my lebensweg with insight and understanding!

My final request is that I be refine for the office of seer and mediumship.

murmur

Mormo is regarded as the son of Hecate– born a human, executed, and then risen up as something of an Ascended Master in death. He is included amongst the spirits of the Goetia under the name Murmur, and he indeed follows both the Azerate and his mother. While he is a demon and a daimon, he cannot be regarded as a ghost or as undead.

Murmur teaches the witch regarding philosophy and shows her how to shapeshift into a ghoul. He can protect the witch and coerce spirits to appear and behave as the witch sees fit, answering whatever questions are posed to it with honesty. He rules music, the dead, sciomancy, and psychic vampyrism. He can strengthen the astral double, improve spirit communication, impart the gift of restraint, and answer the witch’s questions. He is useful in the performance of exorcisms.

The traditional manifestation of Murmur is as a warrior or soldier adorned in the crown of a Duke. He is said to manifest riding either a gryphon or a vulture, and he is generally attended by two persons described variously as “heralds,” “courtiers,” “ministers,” or “trumpeters.” It is generally described that they pronounce his arrival with some manner of fanfare. A modern Anti-Cosmic Satanist elaborates on this depiction, describing the trumpets as pure gold and Murmur with ammunition belts strapped across his chest.

Mormo is old, and he can be grumpy. His social skills need improvement, so he can come across as an asshole, but he will be helpful nonetheless. Hence why Conolly described him as one of “the more intimidating and aggressive necromantic Daemons of the Goetia.”

Mormo is generally referred to as a ghoul, but The Malleus Maleficarum refers to him as a “vampire,” and Greek lore sometimes refers to him by the title Lamia, a generic term for any vampyric daimon*, which term occasionally refers to a specific species of drakaina or partially-serpentine partially-human entity (plural: lamiai) which is vampyric. The actual Greek term for the specific species of lamiai which Mormo and his descendants fall under is called the mormolykiai, mormolyceae, mormolukiai, mormolykiae, (singular: mormolyke, mormolikeion, mormolyki), which title means “terrible wolves.” They are most often called ghouls or hobgoblins in English. These beings love blood and respond with glee and frenzy to offerings of it.

*Daimon here means “non-deity spirit” and refers solely to entities from Greek mythology. The Greek term daimon (plural: daimones) does not mean “god/deity” and is not legitimately interchangeable with demon. The Greek term for deity is daimonion (plural: daimonian). The modern use of “daimon” by Demonolaters is not technically illegitimate due to the subjectivity of semantics, but it is a diversion from the original sense of the word, which word I only use in its original sense.

The mormolykiai appeared in their true form covered in blood and blisters, but they were able to shapeshift into 1,000 forms, including that of a beautiful woman, which form they would adopt to seduce and devour young men. Failing the availability of young men, the mormolykiai would devour the elderly or children.

His traditional enn or summoning chant is “Vefa Mena Murmur Ayer.” I usually start and end rituals to Murmur with an exclamation of “Salve Ducis Murmux” [Hail Duke Murmux] and I often use “Mormo Murmux Matthias-Daimon” as a chant to call upon him. The last chant I use is “Agios Murmux Rex Mormolyceae” [Numinous (is) King Murmux of Terrible Wolves]. The word “Numinous” is a synonym for sacred or holy which lacks the Abrahamic connotation the other words bear. The Temple of the Black Light has a magickal chant it uses to call upon several Hekatic entities at once: “Gorgo, Mormo, Empusa, Lemures, Lamiae, Medusa!”
