The Supreme Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

THE SUPREME BANISHING RITUAL OF THE


PENTAGRAM (SBRP)
For this ritual the adept will need the Sword of the Hiereus and his ceremonial regalia. The ritual can be
performed in a room that is to become a permanent temple space. It can also he performed to clear a room
that must be used out of necessity for both temple and secular purposes. Whenever the need for clearing an
area of unwanted energies arises, the Sword of Vengeance can be employed with much success. If you are
banishing a room which is to be re-dedicated as a temple space, clear the area of all objects and furniture. 1

Face the east.


With sword in hand, perform the Qabalistic Cross.
(Hold the sword with point up while performing the Qabalistic Cross.)

Trace the Banishing Pentagram of Spirit Active, with the tip of the sword in the air before you.

Vibrate the name "Exarp." Draw the Spirit sigil in the center and vibrate "Eheieh." Give the LVX Signs.

Draw the Banishing Pentagram of Air and intone the name "Oro Ibah Aozpi."

Trace the sigil of Aquarius in the center and vibrate "YHVH." Give the Sign of Theoricus. Then raise the
hands above the head as if to touch Kether. Step forward with the left foot while simultaneously bringing the
hands to eye-level and thrusting them forward in the Projection Sign. (This Sign is also known as the
"Attacking Sign" and when used with the Sword of Vengeance, it is a potent gesture of force and will.) Then
stamp the ground with the left foot and give the Sign of Silence (also called the "Sign of Protection") as a
shield
against all attack and protection from any reflux current of energy.

Go clockwise to the south and trace the Banishing Pentagram of Spirit Active

while vibrating the name "Bitom." Draw the Spirit sigil in the center and intone "Eheieh." Give the LVX

Signs. Then trace the Banishing Pentagram of Fire.

Vibrate "Oip Teaa Pedoce." Draw the sigil of Leo in the center and vibrate "Elohim." Give the Sign of
Philosophus. Then give the Projection Sign and the Sign
of Silence.

Go to the west and trace the Banishing Pentagram of Spirit Passive

and intone the name "Empeh Arsel Gaiol." Draw the sigil of the eagle in the center and vibrate "Aleph
Lamed, AL." Give the Sign of Practicus. Then give the Attacking Sign and the Sign of Protection.

Go to the north and trace the Banishing Pentagram of Spirit Passive

while vibrating the name "Nanta." Draw the sigil of Spirit in the center and intone "Agla." Give the LVX
Signs.

Trace the Banishing Pentagram of Earth and vibrate the name "Emor Dial Hectega." Trace the

sigil of Taurus in the center and intone "Adonai." Give the Sign of ZeIator. Then give the Projection
Sign and the Sign of Silence.

Return to the east. Stand in the form of the Tau Cross and say:
Before me, RAPHAEL. Behind me, GABRIEL. On my right hand, MICHAEL. On my left hand,
URIEL. For about me flames the Pentagram and in the column shines the Six-rayed Star!
(Visualize each archangel when intoning the names.)

Repeat the Qabalistic Cross as in the beginning.

The ritual is ended and the room should be completely void of all previous energies 2

3. The LVX Signs vs. the Portal Signs:

"In some of the rituals suggested in this curriculum, (the SIRP, the SBRP, the BRH, and Regardie's
Opening by Watchtower) call for the initiate to give the LVX Signs after tracing the Spirit
pentagrams. This is because traditionally, advanced rituals of this type were performed only by
initiates in the grade of
Adeptus Minor (or higher). The LVX Signs are the grade signs of an Adeptus Minor, not necessarily
the
grade sign of the Element of Spirit. The Fifth Element is conferred on an initiate in the Portal grade,
and therefore the grade signs of Spirit are the Opening and Closing of the Veil, just as the grade
sign for Air is that of the Theoricus. It is therefore apropriate for the Portal initiate to freely
substitute the Portal Signs for the LVX signs [Rendering for the SIRP, Closing for the SBRP]. We
realize, however, that many students have already been performing these rituals with the traditional
LVX Signs, and may be reluctant to switch to the portal Signs. Therefore we have presented the
rituals in this course with the traditional LVX Signs, and leave the option open for the individual to
choose."
