About this course

A Seven Step Process for the healing, transformation and release of negative energetic influences. 

Created by Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS

Magdalene Priestess, Shadow Worker and Spiritual Counselor

Nine Instructional Modules


Moderated Discussion

Whether we believe in the literal truth of demonic entities, or think of “demon” as a metaphor for either our own or collective fear, a critical part of the journey of spiritual development and growth is confronting those energies that might otherwise dissuade us from our path.  We might recognize the presence of these fear-forms in:

  • Challenging or harmful relationships
  • Past or current life trauma
  • Situations where our financial support is not flowing in a positive direction
  • Unexplainable health issues
  • Negative individuals or groups who seem to be attacking or interfering with our work
  • Feeling as if awareness of our gifts or contribution in the world is being blocked
  • Inability to make our soul’s purpose a success
  • Experiences we might interpret as bad luck
  • Crisis patterns
  • Worry, fretfulness, unrest
  • Physical or emotional fatigue

The further we move along the path of our spiritual growth, the more persistent and persuasive these fears become, to the point where they sometimes feel as if they really are a disembodied demonic entity trying to harm us.

Hence the value of having a diligent spiritual practice through which we might identify, confront, heal, release and transform these fears (See my course Authentic Freedom for more on this) so that we might continue along the path of our truth.  When even our most effective spiritual practices aren’t working however, it is helpful to have an even powerful weapon at our disposal.  It is for this purpose that I created and now share the Demon Binding and Banishing Ritual.

Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS is a Modern Magdalene Priestess, spiritual counselor, educator and author. She is the author of the highly-anticipated, Song of the Beloved – the Gospel According to Mary Magdalene and Authentic Freedom, both of which reveal the hidden teachings of Jesus as revealed through his most devoted student, co-equal minister and beloved partner, Mary Magdalene. For over twenty years, Lauri has researched, studied and put into practice these hidden teachings of the Judeo-Christian tradition and discovered within them rich and effective tools for facilitating self-awareness and self-actualization. These teachings and practices prove that beyond the doctrine resides the truth that unites all people – the truth of Oneness in Love. As a priestess of the Magdalene/Christ, Lauri shares these teachings through her on-line and local courses, one-on-one mentoring, writing and publishing.

Lauri is the owner of Authentic Freedom Academy and founder of the Order of the Magdalene. She lives in Oshkosh, WI. You can learn more about Lauri’s other writings, programs and services at

Rules for the Practice and a Few Pre-Agreements

Personal Use Only:  This ritual is only for personal use.  You may share this ritual with others by referring them to this course, but do not attempt to bind or banish another person’s demons with this practice. 

The True Origin of Fear: When a “demon” shows up in our life it often appears through the physical form and actions of another human being.  Perhaps it is our ex-husband, a co-worker, a family member or friend.  This ritual is never intended to bind and banish that person (what we resist will persist), but is instead used to bind and banish the fear within ourselves that is triggered by that person’s presence or actions.  As we provide support for the healing and release of our fears, they are no longer able to be triggered (or it will take more for them to be triggered), thereby decreasing the power others might have over us.  In this, we are freed from their behavior which then forces them to either seek out healing themselves, or another person to victimize.

Harm None: The intention of the binding and banishing ritual is not to cause harm (even when the “harm” might be the idea of destroying a demon or fear), but to bind and release something from our presence so that it can be healed and transformed on the spiritual plane.  We are not doing the healing and transforming ourselves, but are releasing and surrendering the banished fears into the hands of benevolent spiritual forces where the fear can be transformed into love. 

Pre-Requirements to the Effective Use of this Ritual:

The belief (or willingness to believe) in angels.

Understanding that angels are here to serve humanity and because of our gift of freewill, can only do so when called upon (with the exception of their ability to intervene when we are about to veer far from our Soul’s path).

The willingness to believe in the presence and power of the Divine Word/Language.

The willingness to act as a vessel through which Divine Language is spoken.
