Learn how to perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP). The LBRP is a ceremonial magick ritual that is a basic preliminary to any other magickal work. It clears and prepares a space for further magickal or meditative work. This magickal ritual acts as an impenetrable barrier to unwanted magickal forces and allows you to proceed with your magickal working.
