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:

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".

I see, I suppose when I've read over the text I took it in in a more "once you've mastered this whole thing" as it seems to do that a few times, lay out a simple idea of what a magician can do and then show a few grander examples. I haven't practiced from this text, so I cannot speak to it's effectiveness, but re-reading it all this time after my first peruse it does seem to make some lofty claims, but so do many texts that I have found value in, suppose only someone who has extensive practice with this particular book can speak further.

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."
