I've just opened my copy, completely re-read step III, and see no mention of this. What I do see mention of however is "Clearing a room of any unfavorable or unwanted influences" which reads a bit differently than what you wrote "if any person enters the room without permission, such a person will be thrown back with a paralyzing effect."

Immediately following the "Step III: Magical Schooling of the Physical Body" section, there is an "Addendum to Step III", with a subsection about "Room Impregnation". Here I've quoted a few paragraphs from there:

Quote

When the student is filling his room with his emanating energy, he must also imagine what he is trying to accomplish, for instance, that the room will be cleared of all astral and magical influences or that these will vanish, or that not only will the magician feel healthy and well in that room, but so will anyone else who enters or remains there.

Furthermore, the magician can impregnate his room with the wish for proper inspiration, success and so forth in all his undertakings. Magicians that are further advanced have the ability to protect their room, and the moment unwelcome guests enter it they become restless and do not want to remain. Such a room is impregnated with the notion of protection and fear.

You can also impregnate a room in a more stable manner; in other words, if any person enters the room without permission, such a person will be thrown back with a paralyzing effect. As you can surmise, the magician has limitless possibilities at his disposal and on the basis of these instructions he can conceive many other methods.

As for the other abilities, they're found elsewhere throughout step 3. I pulled most of them from the elemental subsections of "Step III: Magical Schooling of the Soul".
