Lesser Banishing Ritual of The Pentagram

This ritual can be used at the beginning and end of larger rituals to "banish" earth energies that may interfere with the ritual.

This ritual is also part of my daily practice (along with Asana and Pranayama).

I am in the process of writing a guide on how to perform it, for one of the groups I attend.

However, there are lots of clips on YouTube where you can see it being performed, and this is a good way to see how it can be performed.

Here are a couple of my favourite clips:

Though some would argue he doesn't get all the actions right, if magic is "Science and Art", he definitely has the art bit correct.  This clip shows how powerful the gestures can look, especially when blended with the right soundtrack.

This is a much more instructive video clip, it is especially good if you really want to know how to vibrate and pronounce the names.  Pronunciation of the god names can be tricky and the subject or much debate, because they are in Hebrew, and Hebrew has no vowels, and we mainly use vowels in our language which is unfortunate.
