LBRP: The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape

The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, or LBRP for short, is a tool to assist you in maintaining your own Light, and protect you from the overwhelming sea of emotions and energies flying about the world.

It is an especially great practice for highly sensitive people and healers!

Many of us suffer from these energy fields without awareness of it. Take this quiz to see if you're one of these highly sensitive people.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, chances are that you are picking up energy fields and moods that aren’t even yours. The only way to know for sure is to draw a boundary around your energy to keep unwanted other energies out, and see if there is a significant difference.

One of the best ways I know to quickly clarify this energy boundary is using the LBRP.

The LBRP takes about 40 seconds to do once you know it. Personally I like to stretch it out to take up about a minute and a half.

For maximum benefit, the LBRP should be done at least three times a day. When you wake up, do it in your bedroom. Before you go to sleep, do it in your living room. On your lunch break at work, do the LBRP quietly somewhere, even in the toilet stall.

First we have the longer explanation of the LBRP, then the short form you can read to remind you what to do.

(The figures can be imagined as female or male, as you choose.

The words can be spoken strongly, or sung, as you choose.)

Here we go.

Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram


Part 1. "The Qabalistic Cross"

Imagine a ball of light above your head. Reach up with your right hand and grab the light. Now when you touch yourself with that hand part of the light will go into you.

  • Touch your forehead as you say "Atah." Let it fill with the light.

  • Touch your pelvis at the pubic bone and say "Malkuth". Let it fill with light.

  • Touch your right shoulder and say "Ve Geburah". Let it fill with light.

  • Touch your left shoulder and say "Ve Gedulah". Let it fill with light.

  • Hold your hands in prayer over your heart and say "Lee-ohlam". Let it fill with light.

  • Feel your whole body fill with the cross of light. Say "Amen" (pronounced "Ah-mayn.")

These words are Hebrew. They are the last part of the Lord's Prayer. "Thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory for ever and ever. Amen."

Jesus told his disciples to pray using these words. You can read it for yourself in the bible.

I am sure that you have seen Catholics cross themselves. This is a similar practice, at least on the surface.

You can use this Qaballistic cross anytime of the day to give you a spiritual charge. It takes about three seconds to do once you know the words and motions by heart.


Part 2. The Pentagrams

wicca-spirituality Pentacle Button   Face East. If this is not possible pick any direction and just pretend that it is East. East is where the sun rises.

Before you in the air draw a giant pentagram (5 pointed star, standing upright: wicca-spirituality Star Button ).

This is done by using your right index finger, or if you prefer use the whole hand.

Start by pointing down by your left hip, toward the left foot. Draw an imaginary line in front of you, from left foot up above your head.

Next down toward your right hip/foot.

Now over toward your left, at shoulder height.

Then across to the right, shoulder height.

Lastly back down to the left, the starting point.

Now imagine that pentagram shining in front of you. Electric blue is a nice colour to see it in. If you see it a different colour that's fine.

Take a step forward with your left foot. Just the left. Leave your right one where it is. The size of the step will be determined by your space. Take a tiny one in the bathroom stall. Take a Giant one in the living room. Take a medium one in the bedroom.

At the same time you step forward thrust your open hands, side by side, palms downwards, into the pentagram. As if you are diving in.

As you “dive in” there is one more thing. You say one of the names of God. Here, at the first pentagram you will say "Yud Hey Vau Heh". This is the spelling out of the Name "Jehovah" or "Yahweh". In Hebrew it is not permitted to say this name out loud so we spell it.

Now step back with your left foot so it is once again beside your right foot. Touch your right index finger to your lips like you are making the "Shhh no talking" gesture.

Point your right index finger to the center of the pentagram and make a quarter turn to your right. As you do so, draw an imaginary arc of white light around to the next direction.

wicca-spirituality Pentacle Button   You are now facing South.

Do the same thing here. Draw and see the pentagram the same way, enter it the same way but say "Adoni." This is Hebrew for Lord. Step back and make the "Shhh" gesture and then point to the center and once again make a quarter turn to your right drawing an arc of white light. You are now facing West.

wicca-spirituality Pentacle Button   In the West do the same as the previous to but say "Eh-heh-yeh." This is the name Moses was given when he asked the burning bush "Who shall I say sent me?" He was told, by God, to "Say that 'I am' sent you.". So these words mean "I am".

wicca-spirituality Pentacle Button   Move to the North in the same manner as before; a quarter turn to your right while drawing an arc of imaginary white light.

You can probably guess by now that it's all the same except for the name of God that is spoken. So do the pentagram etc. The name this time is "Agla".

'Agla' is a kind of code word nickname for God. It's made up like an acronym from the Hebrew words "Atah Geburah Lee-ohlam Adonai" You've seen these words before. They mean "Thine is the power forever my Lord."

wicca-spirituality Pentacle Button   Do the "Shhh" thing and then draw a fourth and final arc of light to the East, back where you started, closing the circle.

You are now standing in the center of a circle of white light. At each quarter there is a giant electric blue pentagram. Feels pretty good eh? It gets better. Now we post a guard at each pentagram.


Part 3. Invoking the Archangels

Open up your arms. Stretch out like you are a cross: feet together, arms out at shoulder height. Call the guards to their posts. The guards are:

  • Raphael in the East. Raphael is an Angel warrior with a keen intellect who has many legions at his disposal. He has the power of Air. He likes to wear Yellow trimmed with Purple. His favourite weapon is the staff.

  • Gabriel in the West. Gabriel is also an Angel warrior. She can feel danger coming and defeat it before it attacks. She likes to wear Blue with Orange trim. She has the power of water. Her legions are uncounted.

  • Michael is in the South. He carries a flaming sword and likes to wear Red trimmed with Green. He is fast and lethal. His armies are unnumbered.

  • Auriel is in the North. Auriel will take the brunt of assaults. He is strong and stout. He carries a big shield to offer protection. He dresses in Browns and Olives. He may wear camoflage.

So. How do you get them in their place? Standing in the cross position call them. Better still, ORDER them with great authority, they are soldiers and you are the commander:

"Before me Raphael. Behind me Gabriel. On my right Michael. On my left Auriel."

wicca-spirituality Pentacle Button   Declaration

Take a wide stance, in Pentacle position ... feet wide and arms straight out to your sides at shoulder height.

Now declare firmly "Around me flame the pentagrams. Within me shines a six-rayed star."


Part 4. The Closing

Almost done.

Do part 1 again, the Qabalistic cross...

Imagine a ball of light above your head. Reach up with your right hand and grab the light. Now when you touch yourself with that hand part of the light will go into you.

  • Touch your forehead as you say "Atah." Let it fill with the light.

  • Touch your pelvis at the pubic bone and say "Malkuth". Let it fill with light.

  • Touch your right shoulder and say "Ve Geburah". Let it fill with light.

  • Touch your left shoulder and say "Ve Gedulah". Let it fill with light.

  • Hold your hands in prayer over your heart and say "Lee-ohlam". Let it fill with light.

  • Feel your whole body fill with the cross of light. Say "Amen"

Now you're done the LBRP.

The LBRP

Here is the LBRP in short form, without the explanations.

Grab ball of light

Touch head "Atah"
Touch pubic bone "Malkuth"
Touch right shoulder "Ve Geburah"
Touch left shoulder "Ve Gedulah"
Hands folded in prayer "Lee-ohlam Amen"

Draw pentagram in East
Enter pentagram "Yud Heh Vau Heh"
Turn to right drawing arc

Draw pentagram in South
Enter pentagram "Adonai"
Turn to right drawing arc

Draw pentagram in West
Enter pentagram "Eh-heh-yeh"
Turn to right drawing arc

Draw pentagram in North
Enter pentagram "Agla"
Turn to right drawing arc

Stand in cross position: "Before me Raphael
Behind me Gabriel
On my right Michael
On my left Auriel

Stand in pentagram position:Around me flame the pentagrams
Within me shines a six-rayed star"

Back to starting position:Grab ball of light

Touch head "Atah"
Touch pubic bone "Malkuth"
Touch right shoulder "Ve Geburah"
Touch left shoulder "Ve Gedulah"
Hands folded in prayer "Lee-ohlam Amen"

Try the LBRP three times a day for a month. You will notice a substantial difference! (Most people notice a difference the first or second time they do it.) And reinforce it with another LBRP any time you feel you might be picking up free-ranging energy (see quiz above for examples).

When you’ve become practiced at it, you can do the LBRP even subtly in a chair or car, with small movements, or visualize it anywhere: an elevator, the street, the subway....

The LBRP will make your life better. Do it. It's magic.


With Bright Blessings,
