    Default Banishing rituals

    One of the most important parts of any occult work is a banishing ritual. Some groups, most notably the golden dawn, don't let you in until you can practice the banishing ritual from memory and with ease.

    The most popular ritual is probably the LBRP or Lesser banishing ritual of the Pentagram.
    I will give two rituals here, one is the original Golden Dawn version. The other is a Kemetic pagan banishing that is not based on the LBRP (Although influences of it are in there) I created for myself.

    -----------

    The Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram (from the Essential skills of Magick, by B.Rowe)

    The Opening.


    1. Stand in the center of the circle, feet together, facing east. Using your
    thumb, touch the center of your forehead, and vibrate “Ateh.”
    As you say “Ateh,” imagine a beam of light coming down from the heavens,
    and forming a sphere or dome of brilliant white light, about nine inches
    across, above your head.

    Vibrate “Malkuth.”
    Imagine the column of light descending into the ground below your feet.
    Once there, it anchors itself in place and forms another ball of light; this ball
    starts out a dark red, but quickly becomes brighter and whiter as more
    energy feeds into it.

    3. Touch your right arm at the level of your heart and vibrate “ve-
    Geburah.”
    Imagine a small sphere of light forming where you touch.
    Move your hand horizontally to the same point on your left arm and
    vibrate “ve-Gedulah.”
    As you move your hand, imagine another line of white light being traced
    horizontally through the center of your body, intersecting the vertical column
    about where your heart is. When the line reaches your left arm, imagine
    another small ball of light forming there. Then imagine a flow of energy
    back and forth between them. Feel that energy as it passes through your
    body, and begins to produce a tingling sensation in your heart.

    4.
    Make a clockwise circle about 6" across around your heart. Vibrate “le-
    Olahm.”


    5. Vibrate “Amen.”
    Bring your arms down to your sides, relax as much as you can while still
    standing straight


    6. Let the above visualizations fade. Don't try to “erase” them, just stop giving
    attention to their maintenance.

    7. Advance to the east point of the circle. Draw a large pentagram with your
    wand, or with the pointed fingers of your hand.
    The lines of all the pentagrams, and the circle connecting them, should be
    seen in a blue-white color.
    Make a stabbing gesture at the center of the pentagram with wand or
    hand, and vibrate “Yahweh.”
    As you vibrate the name, imagine the inside of the pentagram becoming an
    open window into the Realms of Air. Beyond the window, you should imagine
    some landscape that seems Airy to you. Imagine that this realm extends to
    infinity in the direction you are facing.
    Once you have the landscape firmly visualized, imagine a cool wind blowing
    into your circle through the pentagram. Feel the wind filling up the circle
    and blowing through your body and soul, leaving no part of you untouched.
    It blows out and replaces the impure Airy elements of your own nature with
    pure Airy power. Keep feeling this wind until you feel cleaned out and filled
    with Airy power. (if banishing make all the energy that goes through you fade away after)


    8. Move clockwise around the circle until you come to the south. Starting at
    the center of the eastern pentagram, draw a blue-white line as you go.
    Face the south and draw a large pentagram. Make the stabbing gesture at
    the center of the pentagram, and vibrate “Adonai.”
    Imagine the pentagram opening into the Realms of Fire. Feel it filling the circle and yourself,
    burning out any impurities and totally consuming them, then replacing
    them with pure Fiery force. Continue until you feel completely purified by
    the Fire and filled with its force.
    Take a few moments to stop and appreciate whatever degree of Fieryness you
    have managed to bring into the circle

    9. Move clockwise to the west, drawing a segment of the circle as you go.
    Face the west, and draw a large pentagram. Make the stabbing gesture at
    the center of the pentagram, and vibrate “Eheieh.”
    Imagine the pentagram becoming a window into the Realms of Water.
    Imagine a watery landscape. imagine Water gushing into the circle and
    yourself, dissolving any impurities and diluting them into nothingness,
    replacing them with its own pure power. Keep feeling this until you feel
    clean and totally filled with Water.
    Pause to appreciate the Watery element you have managed to bring into the
    circle.

    10.Move clockwise to the north, drawing the circle as you go. Face the north,
    draw a large pentagram. Make the stabbing gesture at the center of the
    pentagram and vibrate “AGLA.”
    Imagine the pentagram becoming a window into the Realms of Earth,
    beyond which you can see some landscape that seems supremely “Earthy” to
    you.
    Imagine the Earthy power moving through the pentagram, filling up the circle
    and penetrating your body, making any impurities so inert and heavy
    that they fall downwards out of your body, to be replaced by a pure earth
    force. Keep feeling this until you feel clean and totally filled with Earth.
    As in the preceding quarters, pause to appreciate the Earthy element you
    have managed to bring into the circle.

    11. Complete the circle by returning clockwise to the east, drawing the line as
    you go. Return to the center of the circle and face east.
    Standing in the center of the circle, try to see all four landscapes at once, and
    feel the power of all four elements focused on you through the pentagrams.

    Say: “Before me stands Raphael; behind me stands Gabriel; on my right
    hand is Michael; on my left hand is Auriel.” The names of the archangels
    should be vibrated.
    The angels should be imagined appearing as their names are vibrated. Each
    should be seen as an immense figure on the horizon beyond the landscape in
    their quarter. You should have a definite sense of them as sapient, self-aware
    beings of great power, come to aid you in your work. The landscapes represent
    the natural, non-sapient force of the elements; the archangels represent
    the divine powers that rule and direct those elements.
    The archangels should have some form that signifies – in your mind – their
    rulership over their elements. I see them as figures in robes the color of their
    elements. Raphael has blond hair that moves in an invisible breeze; he holds
    a fan or dagger in his right hand pointed towards you. His face has an aquiline
    cast. Gabriel has dark hair with a bluish cast, dark skin, and holds a silver
    cup towards you. His robes seem to move in an invisible current.
    Michael has hair and eyes like flames, a slightly fox-like cast to his face, and
    his robes seem to be made of woven threads of fire. He holds a flaming sword
    pointed towards you. Auriel wears black or green robes. His face is rounded,
    and of a nut-brown color. He holds a disk-like pantacle with one face
    pointed towards you.
    Imagine each of the archangels sending a benediction to you through his
    weapon.


    13. Stand with your arms stretched out to the sides, and feet apart. Say:
    “About me flame the pentagrams...”
    See the four pentagrams and the lines connecting them suddenly flaring to
    an intense brightness around you. As they do so, imagine a fifth, equally
    bright pentagram forming about your body, its points congruent with your
    head, hands, and feet. Remember that the pentagram signifies rulership of
    the Spirit over the four elements, and that by identifying it you are claiming
    that rulership for yourself. Try to feel yourself as Spirit, connected to the four
    elements, but also above them.
    Say: “...and in the column shines the six-rayed star!”
    Your mood as you say these words should be one of triumph and exultation,
    a sense of complete success in the endeavor of invoking the elements.
    Imagine a large golden hexagram, the same width as your circle, forming in
    the air above you. Rays of power shine radially outwards from each of its
    points. The lowest point of the hexagram is congruent with the highest point
    of the pentagram previously visualized.
    The hexagram signifies the planetary or “heavenly” realms that are above
    the worlds of the elements. Elemental Spirit is a summation or concentration
    of these heavenly forces. By claiming the power of the elemental Spirit,
    you are also declaring your freedom from the rule of the mundane world,
    and claiming the right to enter into and work in those higher realms.

    The Response.
    14. At this point, the invocation is effectively complete. You have finished setting
    up the conditions for a response from the astral light; now you must
    give that response a chance to occur. This is an utterly vital part of any
    invocation you will ever do; you may get some response while performing
    the ritual, but the most important, the most vital, revealing, and consciousness-
    expanding part of the response nearly always takes place in
    the quiet time after the active work has ended.
    You should now cease all active visualizations, and assume a relaxed,
    comfortable position, standing or sitting. Silently open yourself to the
    forces you have invoked, listen for them with your mind, your body, and
    your aura. Don’t do anything, and don’t think about doing anything for a
    time; just absorb your magickal environment as passively as a “couch
    potato” watching TV.
    When it seems, after a while, as if everything that is going to occur has
    occurred, do the ceremonial closing to complete the session.


    The Closing
    15. Repeat the “Cabalistic Cross” from steps 1 through 6.

    This is my own ritual, although it was given to me by Thoth who I invoked for this.
    the tarot readings I've done twice came up with the same card Strength, So this should work.
    When I performed it I could feel a little buzz, Not as much as the LBRP admittedly but enough to banish negative energy.




    Step One: The opening

    Facing East state aloud

    "Rise of the Eye of truth, and the feather of Justice"

    Draw the Eye of Horus or Udjat

    Make a stabbing gesture into the center of the eye

    "Fall of the rebel serpent and all who stand with him"
    Imagine a beam of light shining from the eye over your heart and a scarab forming in the middle of it.


    "The light of Ra shines upon me, it is a cleansing light"
    (If performed at night, replace Ra with Thoth)
    Visualise a white light shining down from the heavens and that your feet are standing on the world.
    The White light descends, forming four great pillar around you from above and purifying you with cleansing light.

    "The four Pillars of Shu riseth, The pillars of Shu Cometh, The pillars of Shu are here"



    Step Two: The Main rite
    With each of these, imagine the elemental power of the direction blowing over you and removing evil.

    "Quebsnoof stands guard to the East, Evil is cast aside by the winds

    Turn South

    "Tuamtef stands sentinel to the south, Chaos is purged by flame"

    Turn West

    "Im-Seti stands overseeing to the west, Darkness is washed away by water"

    Turn North

    "Hapi stands protecting the north, Enemies are brought ruination by earth"


    "Now Begone, Away, Away all most foul and unclean
    Thy temptations are thwarted, I am not caught in thy trap For I catch thee in my trap
    For I know the name of thy net, and its name is the Sinews of Isis
    For I know the name of thy weapons, they are the hammer of Atum the hidden one
    Now thy weapons and thy traps turn upon you and you are defeated"



    Return facing east
    "The holy eye comes to me, The holy eye comes to me
    shadows flee from me from the north, Darkness flees from me to the west
    Chaos flees from me, to the south Evil flees from me to the east and it is scattered never to return"


    Visualize evil being removed from your presence, within and outside of you
    only to be replaced by light in the next step


    Step Three: The Closing


    Facing East state aloud

    "Rise of the Eye of truth, and the feather of Justice"

    Draw the Eye of Horus or Udjat

    Make a stabbing gesture into the center of the eye

    "Fall of the devouring serpent and all who stand with him"


    Imagine a great light coming from within the eye and resting over your heart with a scarab in the middle

    "Ra's light shines upon me, for I am pure, I am pure"

    A great light fills you and the room completely the banishment is complete.
