It is an especially great practice for highly sensitive people and healers! Many of us suffer from these energy fields without awareness of it. The only way to know for sure is to draw a boundary around your energy to keep unwanted other energies out, and see if there is a significant difference. The LBRP takes about 40 seconds to do once you know it. Personally I like to stretch it out to take up about a minute and a half.

That old thing. Most of the time I see the LBRP performed it is done so perfunctorily that it is rather useless, just mumbling of words and finger pointing or dagger waving. On the other hand, some people seem to think it is the height of magick, turning a brief and powerful ritual into an overplayed, elongated, pompous ordeal.
Still others think it is a useless and outdated part of the old Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and who needs that old stuff? But the book? All the groups? How can you write such a blasphemous comment? The original concept of the Golden Dawn was of a three-part organization. First, there was the equivalent of a preparatory level. It is these five degrees that compose the Golden Dawn per se. It was a training Order. It was not until you reach the second or Inner Order where you are taught and practice ritual magick.
You learn breathwork and meditative techniques. However, excluding the initiation rituals Which are actually empowered by members of the Inner Order who participate as members of the initiating crew.
See my post on initiation HERE. This is of great value because as you practice techniques including meditation, breathwork, Tarot, astrology, etc. This will attract non-physical entities hungry for that energy. The LBRP easily keeps them at bay, and practice will prevent unwanted incursions of stronger entities and energies later in your magickal career.
The original instructions for this ritual are incredibly terse, taking less than two pages. This is because the documents known as Knowledge Lectures that a Golden Dawn initiate receives—one of which includes the brief LBRP instructions—were not meant to be studied in a vacuum. But even though your instructor might give you a great deal more about the performance of the ritual, there are some inner qualities to the ritual which is why it is still relevant and should not be overlooked.
Three Necessities of Magick There are three things you have to master to be a good magician. There are two parts of this.
First, you are using your internal abilities to generate magickal energy. Second, you are using your skills to grab and make use of external spiritual or Divine energy. Together these energies will power your magick. The second necessity is closely aligned with the first.
Once you have that energy raised, you have to do something with it. That is, you have to be able to manipulate the energy and direct it toward achieving your magickal goal s. The third necessity is the knowledge of where to direct that energy.
You may be able to turn a car when you drive, but unless you have the knowledge found in a map, you can manipulate the car all you want and get nowhere. So the three necessities are the abilities to raise and direct energy combined with the knowledge of what to do with it.
The LBRP teaches all of these skills. This is exemplified by the first part of the section of the ritual known as the Kabalistic Cross. You begin by drawing the energy down through you. In the following steps of this part of the ritual, you bring forth your own magickal energy on the physical plane. This is represented by the horizontal line that goes from shoulder to shoulder.
Finally, you unite these two energies at the heart. This is symbolized by uniting your hands at your heart and sealing the physical action with the magickal word Amen.
The next section of the ritual is the Formulation of the Pentagrams. In this section you learn how to direct the energy using color, positioning in three-dimensional space, and sending that energy for protective purposes. Finally, the knowledge of how to do this, combined with the knowledge of banishing, working with archangels, knowing where the archangels are, symbolism in their appearance, and the opening of the senses to receiving them is the knowledge needed for magick, the third of the necessities.
Thus, the LBRP is incredibly valuable for any and all future magickal work, not merely because it is a good banishing ritual, but because, if you work with it, you will have the basics for the mastery of magick.
