Nuctemeron: The twelve hours of Apollonius of Tyana

Apollonius, is one of the historical figure heads that several researchers have seen as the catalyst for the Christ stories in the bible. Apollonius was a student of Pythagoras in ancient greece. The information on Apollonius is far and wide.

Apollonius of Tyana

Perhaps the most interesting information is that which was channeled by Marjorie Livingston on January 14th, 1929. The document that was channeled was entitled the New Nuctemeron. The book describes the proper way of living and what is asked of the student of the mystical arts.

“His Nuctemeron concerns the `Day of God Shining in the Darkness’. This Day is divided into twelve hours, described in twelve brief aphorisms which, at first glance, appear extremely cryptic and veiled. However, when Jan van Rijckenborgh applies the gnostic key (the insight that there is an inner God imprisoned in the darkness of our microcosm, who needs to be set free) these aphorisms are illuminated as a series of twelve steps which, if taken, will enable the `Day of God’ to dawn in our lives.”

In some instance references can be found to the nuctemeron saying that there are several angels or demons that reside within each hour of the Nuctemeron. Perhaps the most intriguing thing is not the ancient book; but the contemporary opera by Hans Van Eck.

first hour
In the unity, de daimons sing the praise of God, they loose their malignity and their wrath.

second hour
By the binary, the fishes of the Zodiac sing the praise of God, the snakes of fire intertwine around Hermes’ staff and the thunder becomes harmonious.

third hour
The snakes of Hermes’ staff intertwine trice, Cerberus opens his triple mouth and fire sings the praise of God by the three tongs of the lightning.

fourth hour
At the fourth hour the soul returns for a visit to the sepulcher. It is the time to light the magical lamps at the four corners of the circles. It is the time for incantations and illusions.

fifth hour
The voice of the great waters sing the God of the heavenly spheres.

sixth hour
The spirit remains motionless. He sees the infernal monsters work against him and he is without fear.

seventh hour
A fire, giving life to all animated beings, is directed by the will of the pure men. The initiate raises his hand and the suffering disappears.

eighth hour
The stars speak to each another, the soul of the suns communicate with the breath of the flowers, the chains of harmony make all the beings of nature correspond with one another.

ninth hour
The number that is not to be reveled.

tenth hour
It is the key of the astronomical cycle and of the circular movement of human’s life.

eleventh hour
The wings of the geniuses move with a mysterious humming, they fly from one sphere to another and carry the message of God from one world to another.

twelth hour
Here are accomplished the deeds of the eternal light.”

The audio of the Nuctemeron is truly haunting and disturbing. This is quite a feat in and of itself when you consider the music out in circulation today. The play is dark and foreboding and after listening to it; one can begin to understand how some of the claims of the 12 hours can be made.

    • 9 is the number of completion, the hermit Tarot card. The initiate is taken to the underworld, taking 3 more steps in the zodiacal sign of Capricorn, Aquarius and piscis. The goal is to reach the 13 Hour. This is the west side of the cosmic wheel where the lower self will be resurrected as a cosmic Human, also known as Adam Kadmon, Cosmic consciousness or Christ consciousness. I am an Adept of The Blue Lodge of Sirius B, also part of the White Brotherhood. After the creation of your solar body you will be able to move to a higher octave or dimension ! Namaste
