Sigil magick is one of the most well-known forms of magickal practice. It involves the creation of a sigil, which is a seal that holds occultic power. If followed carefully, this can be one of the most effective forms of magick for beginners who are still questioning the existence or power of the occultic arts.
First off, you’ll want to know what your will is. Be careful in your wishing; magick knows no emotion nor limits. For example, if you wish to gain monetary funding, you’d like to imagine yourself with the funding you desire. Think about it. Feel the money. Smell the money. Process the emotions that the money brings you. Now think about how you could have gotten it. Obviously, it’s not going to be in your best interest if a family member dies and leaves you a hefty inheritance, so it’s important to structure your will to align in a positive manner.
For testing purposes, we’re going to will for something neutral to come our way. Something that we don’t have happen to us every day, to prove that magick works and is very real. I’ve comprised a basic affirmation statement of will. You are welcome to use this for your testing purposes, or alter it as you please. Be sure to write your statement down on paper. The statement I’ve comprised is:
“I WILL SEE A VERY SHORT MAN IN A TOP HAT”
Obviously, this is something somewhat silly, but it’s not every day that we see a midget walking around in a top hat. This will prove that magick changes the waves of chaos emitted by the universe and allows them to be within our control.
Next, you’ll want to cross out all repeating letters, as such:
“I WxLx xEx A VxRY xxxxT MxN xx x xxP xxx”
Take out the crossed letters and you will get:
Now, you’ve created the elements that will comprise your sigil. Next, draw out an image with all of the letters listed in your abbreviated statement. Here is an example of what it might look like:
You’ll want to connect each individual letter. Letters may overlap, be rotated, or shrunken. It all depends on your personal preference. Make it unique and special to you.
Next, you’re going to want to simplify the image by combining different aspects of it to make it smaller, as such has been done with the example sigil:
As you can see, the artist who drew this sigil merged the letters downwards, keeping the general concept of shape but making it far easier to visualize.
Next, you’re going to want to do what I like to call ’empowering the sigil.’ There are multiple ways of doing this. One is to meditate on the sigil while visualizing it in your mind, funnelling your energy into it as it grows larger and larger in power until it can absorb no more energy. Another way to do this (which is many people’s personal favorite simply because of its ease) is by stimulating yourself to orgasm, and upon climax, visualize all of the energy surging through your body into the sigil. This will overload it and cause it to burst with excessive amounts of energy. This is fine, so long as it’s charged with sufficient amounts of energy. Another great way to charge the picture is to perform a ritual over it, combining multiple magickal aspects such as incense, color, fragrance, candles, and elements (of course, all aligning with the type of spell you’re casting), allowing each and every one to absorb all of its energy potential into the sigil. This is more of a time-consuming process, however, it shows significantly improved results (in my experience).
Once the sigil has plentiful energy to manipulate the universe, you’re going to want to cast it. In order to do this, I recommend using a candle with color specific to the type of spell you’re casting. I’ll go more in-depth on this information in a later article. However, a cigarette lighter or match will do. After a deep meditative session on the results of the spell, take the sigil outside and burn it until it’s completely ash (or in a burn-proof bowl). I like to allow the flame to touch my fingertips, to synchronize my energies with those of the universe, however, this is simply a matter of personal preference. In due time, you’ll find techniques that you prefer more than others through trial, error, and testing.
Then, for the hardest part, following the traditional rule of magick: “set it and forget it.” It is critical that you tell nobody about the casting and attempt to rid yourself of any visualization of the sigil. This can easily be done by doing work on the subconscious mind during a deep session of meditation. If you’re new to magick and are using this form to prove its unexplained science to yourself, practice the art of suspending disbelief. Trust that it will work. Over the next few days or weeks, be attentive to your surroundings or circumstances that relate to the spell you’ve cast.
It may shock you when you just so happen to see a very short man in a top hat.
