LBRP – Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (extended notes & graphics by Mani )

The LBRP  – Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram – is a ceremonial piece of magic performed at the start of any major magical work. It’s aim is to clear / banish *all* energies from a particular working space – so that the magician can then  create sacred space, consecrations, and fill the space with energy of their own – for invoking Deities or angels or other works.

Notes & Art works (c) Mani Navasothy  2018. No part of this notes maye be copied, shared, reproduced or published in any medium – without written permission from Mani Navasothy.

The following extensive notes with stage-by-stage graphics showing what happens and what to visualise – was provided by me to my Students, after running this as part of a Woodland High Magic workshop in May/June of 2018.   I am now making this available freely to all in my blog http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net.

LBRP takes place in 5 stages

1. Grounding & Reaching to Deity –
2. Kabbalistic Cross –
3. Banishing Pentagrams & Circle–
4. Calling 4 Archangels at Quarters for Protection.
5. Kabbalistic Cross (again).

1. Grounding & Reaching to Deity

this involves visualisation that your feet is firmly grounded on Earth.  You draw on Earth energy to `grow’ and become larger than known Universe, until you can see the Divine light in distance in the void beyond all universe.

1 begin - standing on ground
Standing grounded
2 growing taller
Visualise Growing Taller and bigger
3 growing to city size
Growing bigger than a City you are in.
4 on earth in space
Growing bigger than planet Earth..
5 sizef galaxy
Growing to the size of Galaxy
6 bigger than universe
Growing bigger the galaxy ..and Universe!

 

2. Kabbalistic Cross

  • This is where you praise and honour the supreme Deity (God) and draw the divine light into your self.. Imagine a brilliant white light descending.  ..first down into your forehead  (saying ATEH meaning `thou art’.
  • Visualise this light now flowing down through your body and all the way to Infinity ..below you!. Saying the words MALKUTH – meaning `the Kingdom’).
  • You then draw energy from the centre and project it through you all the way to the right, saying the words VE-GEBURAG, meaning `and the Power’;
  • You do the same for the left, saying VE-GEDULAH, meaning, `and the Glory’. This forms a beam of divine light going from the central bean to infinity in both right and left directions.
  • Finally, saying, LE-OLAM meaning `forever’   you project a beam of divine light from all the way to infinity in front of you, and also project a beam all the way to infinity behind you.
  • You bring hands into praying posture saying `AMEN’ meaning `So be it’.
  • Thus you are standing in the centre with 6 beams of divine light.
7 light above
Seeing Infinite Divine Light far above.
8a raise hand to draw
Drawing Divine light in to Self.
8b to forehead
Drawing light into body via  head/ forehead.
8c malkuth to earth
Drawing light down through body to feet and beyond.
8d right shoulder
Beaming light from centre to right (and to infinity) 
8f left shoulder
Beaming light from centre to left (and to infinity) 
8g arms out
Arms out..  with beams flowing up-down, and across
9 praying
Praying position..  beaming light forward & backwards

3. Banishing Pentagrams & Circle:

You then drawn energy from the light beams within, and conjure flaming blue pentagrams in 4 Directions..

  • You begin in the East, and vibrating a God name YOD HE VAU HE to charge the pentagram.  This is an Earth-banishing pentagram.   This is pushed out in the East …as it clears all energies in that direction.
  • You then draw a quarter of a circle, from East to South.
  • Facing South, you conjure 2nd flaming pentagram, and energise it with another God Name   This pentagram is then pushed out to infinity in the Southern direction, clearing all energies.
  • You now draw another quarter-circle, from South to West.
  • Facing West, you conjure 3rd flaming pentagram, and energise it with another God Name EHEIEH.  This pentagram is then pushed out to infinity in the Western  direction, clearing all energies.
  • You now draw another quarter-circle, from West to North.
  • Facing North , you conjure 4th flaming pentagram, and energise it with another God Name AGLA.  This pentagram is then pushed out to infinity in the Northern   direction, clearing all energies.
  • Finally, You complete another quarter-circle, from North to East.

4. Calling 4 Archangels at Quarters for Protection:

 As you have completed the circle, along with 4 banishing pentagrams, you will now be standing in the centre – facing East.   Calling all angels takes place while you still face East..

  • You visualise the Archangel Raphael in the East in front of you.
  • Say, `Before me, Raphael’, then call out his name
  • Now feel the presence of Gabriel behind you (in the West).. Remember you are still facing forward to East.
  • Say `Behind me, Gabriel and call out the name Gabriel.
  • Now just turn only your head towards your right ..which is the direction South. Visualise Michael.  Call out his name
  • Last but not least, turn your head to your left (the direction of North) and visualise Uriel. Call out the name

Take a moment to visualise clearly the 4 Archangels in the 4 directions.. guarding those directions in the circle.  Make sure to honour and welcome them.

5. Full Circle & Kabbalistic Cross repeated: 

  • You now acknowledge the whole magical working as a reminder, by saying,

“Around me flames the pentagrams.  And within me /  behind shines the six-rayed star”

  • You now perform the Kabbalistic Cross again – as you are now in a purified and protected space. Begin with divine light above, drawing in down into body, projecting it to right and left and beams, and projecting it forward and back.

Angelic Magic: Creating Archangel names in sigil form for Raphael, Michael, Gabriel & Uriel

If you do an internet search for the Archangel names, firstly many variations come up, and second, you’ll see a whole lot of shops selling talismans & pendants with all sorts of symbols and sigils, with a mixture of Hebrew writing included and all sorts of squiggles.

The question is, how far do you trust them? How accurate do you think those sigils are – and how do you even test to ensure they are accurate? (unless you are already an expert at those matters).

Am not saying anyone out there is deliberately trying to mislead anyone.  But my own extensive internet (and hard printed books) searches have shown me that there’s a lot of smudging and confusion in this matter… People are sometimes just copying one another’s websites/ blogs or info..and  the mistakes/ misinformation is either spreading or getting amplified (like Chinese whispers).

There are worlds, realms and beings out there – magical, etherial and the supernatural – that are best left alone.  Because once you disturb them, or open a door to their realms, or if they happen to disturb you..  life is *never* going to be the same.

Years ago, I had dabbled…all so briefly..with some sigils..   just playful..  for a day or so..  and the psychic reaction I got from that was so shocking and intense, that it scared me.  I erased all traces of that experiment..and put it away for years!  Until last year!  When I had cause to open it up again..  But this time it’s different.  I’m being extremely careful..  and double..triple checking every detail..

It started as a personal need to know what I can trust ..and then it became an interest…and then it became a promise.. that what I know I must share with others.. Because there are those amongst you.. who are seeking..  out of curiosity, interest or worse…desperation..!

That’s why this is being written..  To help those who are seeking.

Is it my place to help?  Do I know enough to help?   Possibly No..for both questions.   But I have a new philosophy that I have been living by now..for almost half a year..   If you are working with Angels, how ever small or large an involvement, you have to live by some high ideals and standards..  There is no faking it…or suppressing it or denying it..  They will know.  So you have to simply start being it…your best self..  your noble self..  your angelic self!

So with those disclaimers / warnings in mind, let’s begin.

1. The Rose Wheel

I won’t go into the full history or detail of it.. You can look it up on wikipedia .. or the `Golden Dawn’ (for first hand knowledge/ reading).  I will say this..   if you don’t know it,, and you were looking for it …it will have been one hard journey.   Information online is fragmented..and bits seem to be kept apart.

I eventually found it…and suddenly it all made sense..  So am writing about it first..(so that it saves you the trouble).  It’s a key that practitioners of `Golden Dawn’ western magical tradition used in their ceremonies, rituals and magical work.

The Rose Cross with English & Hebrew letters (c) Mani Navasothy 2015. Esoteric blogs at http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net

I have re-created only the central section here.  Not only that,  I have also combined the Hebrew letters/ sounds that  match the english letters/ sounds as near as possible..

2. Arch Angel names

Am only referring to the four Archangels used in the `Ritual of the lesser banishing of the Pentagram’  – mainly, Raphael, Michael, Gabriel and Uriel…  for East, South, West and North directions respectively.

These names were originally said in Hebrew, and were written in that langage. So their pronounciations are slightly different.I have gone back to the Hebrew  forms (given in example)..

3. How to write Archangelnames in sigil form

  • Start by writing the specific name in Hebrew (or find a hebrew version online!).  Remember Hebrew is written from right to left..
  • Then Take out a pre-drawn Rose Wheel.  Yes, you’ll need one.   And above I ave provided one version.  Just print it off, orr copy it using geometric accuracy..or view it enlarged, stick a paper on your screen, and trace over it carefully (don’t press too hard and end up damaging the screen..  so be very careful)
  • Mark out the letters of the name on the Rose Wheel.
  • Now in sequence, trace over the letters, thereby drawing the sigil of the Archangel name.

Here are fully illustrated examples I have created.

With these 4 examples, and the Rose Wheel diagram above, you now have the tools and techniques to start creating sigils of other Arch Angel and Angel names in sigil forms..
