I'd love to hear from people doing the LBRP, the Lower Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.  I'd love to hear about the benefits and drawbacks.  I'm not really interested in doing Ceremonial Magick but the LBRP ritual has some attraction as it gives protection, develops equilibrium and a lot of positive things (from what I've read). The thing that turns me off is that it seems to attract astral wildlife types of things.  Kind of lights you up in the astral.  Any thoughts and experiences would be appreciated.

almost any magical practice that causes and increase in energy will attract astral animals.  The great thing about the LBRP is that it will make it uncomfortable for the harmful ones to stay around you.  So if you're into ceremonial magick, then the LBRP is a win-win situation.

Moonburn is it the LBRP that protects you, or your belief in the protection of the LBRP that protects you?

Well, I've always seen these ritual entities (the ones invoked in the LBRP and other similar rituals) as being on the cusp of objective reality, where my mind and the world interact.  We came from an idea and that idea has certain inherent qualities, when we are unhindered in our interaction, our thoughts will be able to access to certain aspects of our collective consciousness that will register as "real."  These aspects and entities are what are called upon in these rituals.  However, I've noticed that having an unwavering belief in something creates a certain refined and potent quality of energy that tends to appear to negate the effects of that reality.

So to answer your question- I'm indifferent as to which scenario it actually is.  Having the ritual work of its own volition makes me happy
