"A sigil (/ˈsɪdʒəl/; pl. sigilla or sigils) is a type of symbol used in ritual magic. The term has usually referred to a type of pictorial signature of a Jinn or other entity. In modern usage, especially in the context of chaos magic, sigil refers to a symbolic representation of the practitioner's desired outcome."
There are many types of magical letters, symbols, seals and sigils from ancient Egypt, Druid to Angelic. Every language and culture in the world has had sigils and power symbols. Contemporary versions unfortunately are found in corporate logos . Think about that for a second...
I have used sigils/or known as power symbols for many years, in combination with candle magic is very powerful. In all honestly it took me years to build alters more than once a year because when i did one I would feel the ripple effect for over a year! I would like to say I have learned to harness my magical potentials and abilities but it is a life long journey.
Always seeking knowledge, practicing, refining your skills its an art and it takes years of dedicated practice to really find your special skills and work with them. I suppose thats why they call it magical arts;)
But now I do them more regularly and a softer with my magic. I had no idea what I was unleashing half the time lol I have been a solitary practitioner most of my life so it was A LOT of trial by fire and oh shits!
This is exactly why I am putting all this information out there to help people have a good solid magical working foundation that they can build upon. Saving them time, energy and ooops! There is so much to learning about magical laws and principals it would take a lifetime of devote studying to understand it all. I am laying out years of research and tested ways in hopes to help others have a firm foundation and a head start without having to get too in depth and getting overwhelmed.
If your drawn to sigils and magical symbols, numbers ect do some extra research, its a very fascinating and complex subject,
For those of you who would like to use them but want me to get to the point of how to do them in a simple but very effective way... here is it.
You would like to do an alter for better health and abundance.
*Note I don't ask for money... i don't care about it, i would rather be abundant. That means much more to me than money. It can mean time, energy, friendships, love, health, and wealth.
* You make your prayer/affirmation. " I call upon you great goddess Abundanitia to help me understand my body more, give me inner strength and self love to properly care for my vessel. Help me be aware of opportunities and not get in my own way of manifesting abundance. Thank you and I live in gratitude for what I do have as I know all my needs are always met. So be it."
This is where you get your paper, pens, pencils, crayons , whatever you feel drawn to using to translate your personal power sigil onto.
I do a few rough drafts before I commit to "the one".
Pick a few keys works that stand out or you feel pulled to as being the important ones.
* inner strength
* self love
* manifest abundance
Here is where you take the first letter of each word.. I S S L M A .
Now you can join all the letters together to make a symbol. Will post some examples in group thread.
When you have your final one finish it off with a circle as you state your prayer/affirmation. You may paint it on a rock, put on a piece of paper, my favourite is to carve it with a hot pin into a candle. I let that candle burn all the way out as the intention is sent out into the universe and now I'm just waiting for the answer.
You may add your sigil to your witches spell bottle to ramp it up.
If its for releasing energy I burn the paper its on. ( fire safely first)
