Ban! Ban! Barier That None Can Pass,
Barrier Of The Gods, That None May Break,
Barrier Of Heaven and Earth That None Can Change,
Which No God May Annul,
Nor God Nor Man Can Loose,
A Snare Without Escape, Set for Evil,
A Net Whence None Can Issue Forth, Spread for Evil,
Whether It Be evil Spirit, or evil Fiend, or Hag-Demon, or Ghoul, or Robber-Sprite,
Or Phantom, or Night-Wraith, or Handmaid of the Phantom,
Or Evil Plague, or Fever-Sickness, or Unclean Disease,
Or That Which May Do Harm in Any Form or Fashion
Which Hath Attacked the Shining Waters of Ea,
May the Snare of Ea Catch It;
Or Which Hath Assailed the Meal of Nisaba,
May the Net of Nisaba Entrap It;
Or Which Hath Broken The Barrier
Let Not the Barrier of the Gods,
The Barrier of Heaven and Earth, Let It Go Free;
Or Which Reverenceth Not the Great Gods,
May the Great Gods Entrap It,
May the Great Gods Curse It;
Or Which Attacketh the House,
Into a Closed Dwelling May They Cause It To Enter;
Or Which Circleth Round About,
Into a Place Without Escape May They Bring It;
Or Which is Shut In By the House Door,
Into a House Without Exit May They Cause It To Enter;
With Door and Bolt, a Bar Immovable,
May They Withhold It;
Or Which Bloweth In at the Threshhold and Hinge,
Or Which Forceth a Way Through Bar and Latch,
Like Water May They Pour It Out,
Like a Goblet May They Dash It to Pieces,
Like a Tile May They Break It;
Or Which Passeth Over The Wall,
Its Wing May They Cut Off;
Or Which Lieth in a Chamber,
Its Throat May They Cut;
Or Which Looketh In at a Side Chamber,
Its Face May They Smite;
Or Which Muttereth In a Chamber,
Its Mouth May They Shut;
Or Which Roameth Loose In an Upper Chamber,
With a Basin Without Opening May They Cover It;
Or Which at Dawn is Darkened,
At Dawn To a Place of Sunrise May They Take It.
Out With You! Spirits of Fear, Spirits of Death!
Give Way to the Sun and the Moon!
For This is a Place Made Safe!
Bright Blessings and Peace Upon Us!
And All Who Reside Here,
Let None Enter Here Unbidden,
Keep Harm and Fear Far from This Place,
May God and Goddess Bless Us!
So Mote It So!
So Mote It Be!

"This should be performed on the night of the full moon, and is a very intricate spell. All portals and doorways should be open, including closet doors and windows, Then, as you start, close every closet and cabinet door, making the sign of the banishing pentacle with your wand, your athame, or your hand (a stick of patchouli incense may be substituted). Music should be light. Use a goodly amount of commanding incense as well as patchouli and sandalwood. Once you have done the closets and cabinets, go from window to window outlining the banishing pentagram on each one, and close AND LATCH each window. Remember to close and latch your fireplace, as well, perhaps burning some incense there. Once the windows are secured, do inside doors, then when you reach the entry ways, state the last ten lines. If performed correctly, you will notice the difference in atmospheres from the outside compared to the inside, the moment you walk into the house or apartment."
Okay, that's how I got it. Here's what happened when we performed it.
I had pulled one of my partners into this with me, and we did it the night after the full moon, being as how we didn't get home in time the night OF the full moon (being across town and having to stay the night as our friends were very tired). We also didn't use patchouli incense, as I dislike it, opting for sandalwood instead with the commanding incense. Several times, though I had talked to said partner about what to do when I was speaking, I still had to pause in the recitation to tell him what to do. So, there were breaks in concentration. WITH ALL THIS, we still got an apartment that feels much happier. This building, just since we moved in a year and a half ago, has seen an ax murder on the lower floor, a shooting on the upper floor where we are, two police break-ins on drug raids, several shootings in the back alley, and two stabbings on the sidewalk near the building. Bad vibes. Now it's better.
Here's the downfalls-if you can call them that.
This is supposed to, at least how I interpret it, clear out EVERYTHING in your house to start fresh. We had a ghost cat before. We still have her now. Also, we now have two dark brown, heavily fanged...THINGS...hovering in my kitchen, worshipping my fridge. You think I'm kidding. I'm not. Scared the hell out of me when I first noticed them; eventually, I broke down and went into the kitchen. When they didn't attack, I moved near the fridge. "It's a refrigerator," I said. They gave back a sort of sub-vocal "Wow..." I opened said fridge. "It's still a fridge," I said. They looked in; seemed even more impressed. I have NO idea why. Also, once I looked down from my computer, feeling watched, and noticed another dark brown thing, all rags and big feet and big eyes. His whole being radiated shock and surprise when I looked down; again, I caught a sort of sub-vocal "WHAT??!!??", and he vanished. Poof. That's been it, but it's interesting. Did these slip in due to the changes or due to the lack of concentration? No harmful thing is in this apartment now; of that I'm sure. So how are these new residents explained?
Anyway, that's it. Hope you have fun with it...:>
