Lesser Banishment of the Pentagram

Will surround and protect with the power of 4 almighty aspects of God and 4 archangels. Should be done every day in the morning and at the end of the day. Try not to do it right before bed because it will energize you to where you won’t be able to sleep.

Take a few minutes to relax and when you are ready you can proceed. Will need a dagger and if you do not have one you may use your index finger. You are going to be tracing pentagrams in the air, vibrating sacred names of God and calling upon the archangels to surround you. You are going to have to visualize these things you do, but after much practice you will see the pentagrams and angels and not have to imagine, because they are really there!

I. Perform the Qabalistic Cross
II. Inscribe the Circle
III. Inscribe the Pentagrams
IV. Invoke the Archangels of the Four Quarters
V. Perform the Qabalistic Cross Again

I. The Qabalistic Cross

With wand or finger of the right hand touch the forehead and intone Ateh. Then touch the solar plexis and intone Malkuth. Then the right shoulder, intone Vegeburah, then the left and intone Vegedullah. Finally cross your arms over your breast and intone Le Orlahm Amen.

II. Inscribe the Circle
Walk around the space that you intend to be encompassed by the ritual, with your wand, athame, or finger "drawing" a circle as you go, starting at the East and going clockwise until you return to the East. There is no set circumference, but all participants and ritual items that you intend to use should be within this circle.

III. Inscribe the Pentagrams
In each of the four quarters starting with the East you should now inscribe the banishing pentagram of Earth. As each pentagram is completed you should pause and charge the pentagram with the Divine Name associated with that Quarter. East--YHWH (pronounced Ya ho Wah). South-- Adonai. West-- EHIHE (pronounced ee hee ay) North--AGLA (pronounced ah glah). Return to the East.

IV. Invoke the Archangels of the Four Quarters
Standing facing East in the form of Osiris Slain (feet together, head raised to the sky, arms spread wide) Say:
Before me stands Raphael
Behind me stands Gabriel
On my right hand Michael
On my left hand Auriel
For about me shines the pentagram
And above me shines the six-rayed star

V. Repeat the Qabalistic Cross

Notes: The Lesser Banishing should be done at the beginning of a ritual to clear the area for magickal workings and then again after to discharge the magickal force raised during a ritual. This ritual can be done anywhere, and is useful on the astral to "get rid of" unwanted visitors (i.e. elementals or other etheric beings you run into on the astral).
The visualizations that go with the ritual are: Qabalistic Cross-- a beam of energy entering your head and exiting your feet, and another crossing from hand to hand, your heart should be where the two beams cross and as they do a rose made out of light should bloom.

Circle--when you complete the circle a sheet of light should spring up.

Pentagrams-- each pentagram should flare as you draw it and then become intense and solid as you charge it with the Divine Name.

Archangels--as you name each archangel you should visualize him standing just behind the pentagram and spreading his wings so that your circle is completely surrounded--Raphael is dressed all in gold and carries a sword--Gabriel is dressed in blue and carries a cup--Michael is dressed in red and carries a wand--Auriel is dressed in green and carries a pentacle.
