May I ask you what’s your primary means of protection or defense? It’s none of business and you clearly don’t have to answer my rude questions.
It’s always nice to know that your guardian is looking out for you somehow.
The LBRP for example (Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram) is part of the golden dawn system of magick for early learners.
It’s designed to familiarize oneself with the four cardinal directions, their correspondences to the archangels of their quadrants, etc or something along those lines.
You might be suited better for something else. You might also really enjoy the golden dawn system.
It’s just nice to get some sort of rapport established with your guardianship, so that you’ll always feel safe or watched over whenever engaging with foreign entities.
This daily practice might also help with developing visuals and the second sight, other dimensional hearing, so that whenever we’re looking into sigil activation, it feels more natural to use them, having gotten familiar with the acts of intonation and invocation.
There are daily exercises given in there.
Not only that but there are so many other useful tutorials for similar daily ritual and routines for developing the wisdom and the know how.
You’ll work on things like moving orbs and light structures around in the mind that will reflect as actual energy work in the long run.
It’s worth noting that I haven’t used that system in several years, save a handful of occasions, but it’s how I got started off in developing my own sort of protection and defense routines. It’s really important to know that you’re safe while practicing evocation. I’ve had my ass handed back to me on more than one occasion as well. I used to assume that what I was hearing was always the truth.
At the same time, someone with a natural gift might become very intuitive. Calling forth powers from old books is still sort of different from being a psychic channel or a medium who can talk to spirits that show up out of the blue, and for that reason might require the development of a whole new skill set, which can be loads of fun.
