The Necronomicon Tradition is a phrase that describes a seven-gated initiation that priests and priestesses of the ancient animistic faith had to undergo in their work as spiritual ambassadors and mediators between the race of man and otherworldly beings.
While the term necronomicon is derived from the fictional texts of author H. P. Lovecraft, it should be remembered that it is common practice, in the fields of religious and scientific study, to apply academic meanings to words that originate in fictional literature. For example, terms like genetic engineering, robotics, and zero gravity, are just a few words that are used by scholarly institutions, which find its origin in fictional novels.
For the purposes of Ninzuwu spirituality, use of the term Necronomicon (a treatise on Chaldean Alchemy) perfectly defines the underworld journey of initiation, where the initiate must pass through seven stages or gates, a process similar to practices described by Herodotus concerning the Greek Necromanteion rituals.
We, the Ninzuwu, are of divine origin and as such, we believe in the Divine Creator, and the Eternal Consciousness of Life, which permeates throughout all Creation, both seen and unseen, and who is thereby known in Ninzuwu Shinto faith as the Heavenly Parent, Ame-yudzuru-hi-Ame-no-sa-giri-kuni-yudzuru-tsuki-kuni-no-sa-giri-no-Mikoto. We believe in the virtues of Kindness, Compassion, integrity, Joy, and Upright Moral Behavior, Peace, Equality, Divine Love and Harmony through Nature.
We believe that our efforts of applied divine love and kindness, good thoughts, good deeds, compassionate and right living is able to remove the suffering of humanity, allowing ascension of consciousness to a higher plane of being. We believe that as Ninzuwu, we have been divinely endowed the ability to alter the DNA of matter through our sacred prayers and rites as prescribed in the Ninzuwu faith.
It is our mission to promote Ninzuwu culture by transmitting healing and compassion and to promote higher consciousness through divine love, equality and balance. By these efforts, we aim to cause an end to human suffering, prejudice, racism, classism, greed, avarice and apathy. Ninzuwu practitioners further demonstrate their ethnicity by advocating these tenets and by actively working against the dehumanizing system of racial classification which is against humanity.
