At the end of last year, a few days after the final completion of the Quareia course, after 3 years of full time writing 50+ hours a week you would think I would want to rest. But no. I had a crazy idea, and my editor had the same crazy idea, and together it may a new project. That project has finally come to conclusion and the magical translation of the enigmatic Egyptian Book of Gates is finally out and available. Michael Sheppard, my editor and Quareia’s ancient languages boss, has written a far better blog post than I could on the process we went through, and about the power within the Book of Gates. So I have linked to his blog at the bottom.
Suffice to say, the Book of Gates hides when it wants to, exposes what it needs to for you as an individual, and will kick your magical ass in to shape if you need it. Within it we found the death passage, we found living magicians working in the Duat in service, we found inner adepts who are resident in the Duat working out in the living world in service, we found the process of the formation of the Justified adept, the godly ones, and the challenges of the initiate that would turn them into an akh, an adept, a Finished one. It bullied both Michael and myself, and left us both with more than a few bruises, scratches and ringing ears… all justified, all necessary and all learning experiences. It also holds the most beautiful insights into the nature of Divinity, of Life and life after death, and the sheer beauty of a soul. It was a life changing experience for us both.
And the Book of Gates can be found on Amazon
