Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS is a Modern Magdalene Priestess, spiritual counselor, educator and author.

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.
