Incredibly cool animated video about how to perform the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram. Now, it should be noted that coming more from the school of Chaos Magick, I’ve never actually done any of the traditional ceremonial magick stuff but I might give it a try someday if I have time. I took the basic principles and designed my own inner fixation incantations that have more meaning to me in particular. Does this ritual work? I have no idea, give it a whirl and let me know. ‘Tis far more technical than any of mine. I normally repeat major key guitar riffs I’ve written in my head until I feel the waves of invading negativity have subsided.
Should be noted that I dove into magick not thinking there was a necessity to banishing rituals and found out pretty quick that there absolutely is. In fact, if I was ever going to give advice to any aspiring mage, the first thing I’d tell them would be: make sure you come up with a good banishing ritual. Shit gets weird real fast. I’m also posting this because I had a conversation with a friend and fellow Occultist last week about how ridiculous it is that so many metal bands co-opt Occult imagery and equate it with Satan or daemon worship when all you have to do is read a fucking book to figure out that’s not what it’s about at all. That’s just how the church has slandered it and man did that particular smear campaign work. What I find uber-creepy is that a lot of people really want to believe in daemon worship because they’re just that fucked up from their childhood or whatever. This particular ritual involves evoking rather specific angelic forces. Ooooooooh, spooooooky.
