This ritual should be memorized as soon as possible on your magical path, and practiced daily. Since divine names of God, which correspond to each elemental quarter, are used to charge the pentagrams, and the archangels of each quarter are called to watch over your area, the circle formed with these magical ritual acts as an impenetrable barrier to unwanted magical forces and allows you to proceed with your magical working. The Lesser Banishing Ritual is important for protecting you while you work on your magic. Do this in all 4 directions, east, south, west, then north.

This ritual, called the LBRP for short, is designed to clear your area and yourself of negative energies. It is composed of four sections. The LBRP has become a standard part of the Western Mystical Tradition, and has been adapted and altered by many individuals and magickal groups. Here is a basic version. The only magical tool you need is a dagger, although you can use your right index finger instead.
The odd words are English versions of Hebrew using transliterations based on modern Hebrew as the pronunciation of ancient Hebrew is debatable. Part One: The Kabalistic Cross. Visualize yourself getting larger and larger, taller and taller, until you tower above the room you are in.
Continue this growing visualization until the city you live in is small beneath your feet. See the continent as tiny compared to your majestic body. Now even the Earth is small beneath your feet.
However, no matter how small the Earth is, it is still firm and solid beneath your feet, anchoring you to the ground. Next visualize yourself growing so large that the planets of our solar system are like tiny toy rubber balls spinning near your feet.
Soon they are too small to see as even the Milky Way galaxy becomes a small dot of light at your feet. Now visualize a dot of light coming from somewhere far above your head. Know that this is only a tiny bit of the light from this [Divine] source It is nine inches in diameter, about the size of a dinner plate
Lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram
This ritual is regarded as one of the most important foundational rituals in Ceremonial magic. It is effective as a banishing ritual, clearing the lower astral of negative influences and establishing a protected area. It also centers the magician and invokes protective forces, orienting the magician with the forces of the cosmos. There are many versions of this ritual available, and many different authors describe slight variations.
The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram
Previous writer and editor at BellaOnline. I love sharing articles on many topics. The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram—the LBRP for short—is a well-known, effective technique used for ridding yourself and surroundings of unwanted and negative energies. It is also used at the beginning and ending of magical rites. It originates from ceremonial magic orders including the Golden Dawn.
The LBRP: Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram
The essential function of the rituals of the Pentagram is to assert the dominion of the magician over the chaos of the elemental realm or phenomenal world. This is done through symbolically signifying and magically identifying the magician's alignment and participation in the spiritual ground of the cosmos. When first learned, these rituals are usually engaged with in a strictly performative manner. Words and gestures are memorized and used without deeper reflection. Familiarity with the ritual can often breed forgetfulness that it is not merely a performance piece, however, but rather a profound prayer and moving meditation. Actual, not merely symbolized identification with the absolute is the true goal of the ritual.
The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram or LBRP is a ceremonial magic ritual devised and used by the original order of the Golden Dawn that has become a mainstay in modern occultism. This ritual is considered by many to be a basic preliminary to any other magical work, so much that it was the only ritual, besides initiation rituals, taught to members of the Golden Dawn before they advanced to the Inner Order. The ritual is highly dynamic, using gesture, visualization and the pronunciation of certain words of power, combining prayer and evocation as well as clearing and preparing a space for further magical or meditative work. The ritual is perceived as banishing any "chaotic" and "impure" forms of the elements from the magician's circle tracing the Pentagrams in the air and by the power of certain Divine names followed by an invocation of the spiritual forces ruling the elements to fortify and guard the circle. The text originated as a traditional Jewish prayer said before sleeping,  as documented by Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch in The Hirsch Siddur [Feldheim Publishing, ], which reads as follows:. In the Name of God, the God of Yisrael : may Michael be at my right hand, Gabriel at my left, Uriel before me, Raphael behind me, and above my head, the presence of God.
