So I am trying to learn how to do the Middle Pillar meditation. One video shows someone doing the LBRP before the meditation. The guys video says it is necessary because the Middle Pillar meditation uses Divine Names and attracts energy and that energy attracts entities.
Another Middle Pillar video says nothing about the LBRP.
Lewellyn’s has a blog post on the Kabbalah Cross, the LBRP, and the Middle Pillar, and it sort of sounded like you needed to do all three of them. So one wasn’t really good enough on its own, you kinda needed all three for things to work smoothly.
All I am trying to do is learn to meditate and focus. Since the Middle Pillar seems to be the way for magicians to meditate, it seems like I should start learning it.
Do I need to do an LBRP or Caim banishing before and after the ritual?
Is the Caim as good as the LBRP, which one should I learn?
