I’m learning about the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram and am wondering if it’s worth it to commit to doing every day. Is it really all that powerful. Has anyone found that it is penetrable by any particularly motivated outside attacks or random tragedies/accidents?
Any type of defense can be taken down if enough force applied, that doesn’t mean LBRP is a useless ritual, hell, LBRP is not a mere banishing.
Banishing rituals usually aren’t geared towards curse removal. It can hold off attacks but usually other magick is used to remove a curse.
Ok I will have to dig deeper into what it’s good for because I’m under the impression it’s a shield and it will protect you from attacks you don’t see coming.
As @Vandheer says, the LBRP is far more than a banishing rituals as well. Daily practice of the LIRP and LBRP can strengthen the spritiual body as well.
Thats a good recommendation to commit to a year twice daily banishing only. Or invoking Spirit daily twice daily.
No, not that I am aware of.
I would suggest LIRP first and LBRP later personally. Despite how it is known today, LIRP was given more attention than LBRP early Golden Dawn.
But if you really want protection, Master Protection Ritual is an amazşng choice. Sword Banishing in the same book, which I forgot the name of, is the fastest banishing rite I ever know of.
Psionic shields and talismans are also a good option.
Ok great! I will look into all of these!
Also, keep in mind that you can trace the pentagram over another person, while vibrating the divine names. Similarly, you can trace a banishing pentagram over your head, as well as your third eye area while vibrating the divine names.
Magickal Protection Defend by Damon Brand
I have most of the talismans from the Greater Key of Solomon made of brass, as well as archangel seals, counter-curse talismans, a dream catcher, several wands, and brass vessels just in case. I also perform the LBRP when needed. With all of this protection in place, I don’t experience nightmares anymore, nor do I experience parasite attacks, bad luck, or magical attacks. I do, however, experience “weird shit” fairly often, and have a lot of rather fucky dreams straight out of Bizarro World.
You might want to put up a ward and shield too. That will make your protection stronger.
Actually yes, I did in recollection. Back in 2013 I was Self Initiatging into the Golden Dawn current. I thought I reached Theoricus, however barely touched Neophyte despite trying to put work in. It seems most of it is rote memorization. So Im a big bad neophyte, and have Crowleys big blue magic tome.
I spot an inverse pentagram ritual and try it. Neato! Then, my life started to fall apart and had a bunch of wierd experiences.
I’ve noticed that the LBRP seems to be tied to the specific space you do it in. So if you move buildings at all or walk around too far (as most people do) you obviously won’t be “protected”
Wow please do tell about some of the “weird shit” and vivid dreams . I actually love vivid wild dreams a helluva lot as long as they don’t terrorize me…
Weird shit excites me too as long as it isn’t scary…
so what has happened to you ?
Ok so it’s not a protection on your body but a protection only on the space you do it ?
The LBRP is a method of bringing in the divine light within you, which alone should banish and cleanse you if done properly. Then you are evoking the primal powers and the Archangels who rule over them. Finally you are once again bringing the divine energy within but also expanding it as you have become a microcosm of existence.
To continue cleansing and banishing, move the divine light up and down your body, through your chakra points, and specifically into areas of the body that need extra attention. Visualize dark energy being naturalized, even if you don’t actually feel or see it. The visualize your body of light being pure.
If you require more cleansing, I recommend herbal baths, smudging, talismans if you connect with them.
If after all that you still feel like you are being psychically attacked, you need to really address the source. Did you upset somebody, can you make up for it? Are you in an area that is particular hostile with spirits etc. Are you having a mental breakdown and need to see a doctor, that sort of thing.
So do you think it was because of trying to initiate into the golden dawn current? Is that something people are not supposed to try or only if they’re very advanced? How did your life fall apart.
I don’t usually remember my dreams at all unless I give a spirit permission to send me a sign in a dream (I obviously only do this for spirits I trust). The dreams are almost always completely wacky and make zero sense. At least that’s been my experience.
And what of the other odd weird things that have happened to you?
