How do banishing rituals feel for you after doing them?

I’ve been doing the banishing ritual of the sword, but i don’t know if what I’ve experienced after exactly is what it’s supposed to feel like? the one thing i noticed is that negative thoughts and ideas have like a harder time “coming through” to think them, is that one? I’m asking because i think there is this problem of differentiating between actual effects instead of whatever minor thing noticed and a thought springs up like “aha! that thing is totally what it must be”. how can i learn to see the difference more clearly instead of my brain making shit up for me?
What are other effects? Thoughts on this or experience with this particular banishing ritual? I feel its a bit short, but convenient in that aspect, i might consider doing a different one though, now.

ok, ty.
