ok here the thing. Lately ive been getting visit from a spirit, who i am pretty sure its my grandpa. The only reason i say that is because only he would bother me at 3 am. while there is not doubt in my heart that i love my grandpa, and would do almost anything to see him one more time. we were close, We spent summers together watching buffy, and he showed me a channel called shimmy. about i think a year and some months now, he died. He showed me his death in a dream. which got confirmed 3 minutes after I woke up, from mom saying. grandpa died and all i said was " i know" but getting to the point. this is the 5th time he's wandered into my room,while i attempt to study. ive tried smudging, ive tried having that discourages spirits to appear. i have tried talking to him telling him to move on. I do know how to the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram. other wise known as LSBR, but i hesitate because its my grandpa and i feel guilty for not being there for his actually death. i view the LSBR as the equivalent of a napalm blast. i dont want to actually per-say harm him. if that makes sense. so im stuck between a rock and a hard place. do i do the equivlent of a napalm blast or do i just live with him walking into my room at 3 am.
How has your communication with him been? I would keep trying to tell him that it is disturbing you. Also see if there is a reason he is bugging you at that time. Perhaps he is trying to tell you something. Blessings :)
i have tried telling to come back at a more suitable time, but as in life, he is also stubborn in death.
im honestly not sure if he has ever heard me. only because i usual rely on something happening or sgo through on some sort of medium.(object not person)
i think the message is to go to bed at a normal hour not 3 in the morning. but thats usual when i do my school work the best.

Personally, I would use Isa (a rune of Ice/flow block) drawn on my walls in energy when I studied (its not a protection, more like locking your door). Or I would merely put up a wall up out of my energy. If be breaks through either of those than I would say he has something very important to tell you (its not just a friendly visit) and he is choosing the hour when the veil is thinnest to make it easier to contact you.
Yes think of runes kind of like sigils, symbols that represent actions that help you. The meanings of the runes in divination can translate to uses outside of divination. I myself use them often for my altars and rituals.
You do not need to banish your grandpa. Could he is continually coming to you in order for you to listen to his message. Try quietening your mind and listening , go with any feelings you might feel ect. On occasions some spirit after passing are still somewhat clinging to the psychical and can't quite move on. This could be due to unfinished business or fear of crossing. If it is the latter and he is fearful help cross him over , reassure him that he needs to go into the light and his loved ones will be waiting to embrace and ensure his crossing is smooth.
The LBRP is not the equivelant of a napalm blast in my opinion. It's a ritual that tends slightly more to High Magick (more structure) in terms of binding intead of banishment. You're binding the spirit from you instead of to you rather than banishing the spirit.
