Sigil magick is a rather powerful, but simple form of magick invented by Austin Osman Spare, but popularized by Peter Carroll in the book Liber Null and Psychonaut. The basic method is to create a solid will for something (this means to be 100% congruent with it happening, desiring it to happen, and being ready to do whatever it takes).
How To Use Sigil Magick
For example, let’s discuss using sigil magick for the will to get a hundred people a month to read my blog.
Next, you remove the repeated letters leaving only one of each letter. Using the above example togeahundrplmyb.
Then, you make an image using the letters. I didn’t actually charge this desire, but I created a sigil as an example. It’s just an example. If you look at it, you can find all the letters in the sigil. [So, if I don’t get at least 100 readers a month, I only have myself to blame!]
You can also create a word/mantra from the letters which you can chant as a sigil or to further charge this sigil.
Charging Sigils For Sigil Magick
Finally, you need to charge the sigil, which means to imbue it with magickal power. There are a ton of ways to do this, but a very popular one is to charge it with sexual energy. There are other ways, but I’m going to explain how to do it with sexual energy.
Basically, you need to get into one of the mental states Carroll mentions in Liber Null And Psychonaut (sexual excitement is one of them, so that alone could suffice–just make sure you’re highly aroused to the extent that it’s hard to focus on anything else, this is the sexual excitement mental state). Next, you focus on the sigil itself, knowing the desire, but with as empty of a mind as possible (quiescence is the word Carroll uses).
Then, you focus on the sigil in the state and engage in a sexual act (alone or with a partner) until you reach orgasm (this can be difficult at first as you need to keep your mind quiet + focus on the sigil and the physical sensations). [Remember what I said in this other post about being able to get into and hold the mental states as being key?] As you reach orgasm, push the energy into the sigil (this will mostly likely ruin/overwhelm the physical sensation). This is exactly as it sounds: just (imagine) push(ing) the feeling into the sigil. [Some people recommend imagining you’re breathing the sigil in at the moment of orgasm and then breathing out onto the sigil.]
Immediately Change Your State After Charging
Now you need to immediately change your state and forget about the ritual as best as you can. Many people recommend hysterical laughing and burning the sigil. But there are many approaches to this as long as you immediately switch states and turn your focus elsewhere. The theory is that if you keep thinking about it and checking it will ruin it like you will ruin a soufflé by opening the oven.
This method from Liber Null and Psychonaut works rather well, but there are also other approaches. Frater U.D.’s book, Practical Sigil Magick, has many other methods if you’d like to explore the power of sigil magick yourself. However, I’d start will Liber Null and Psychonaut as this book will help you with the basics of getting this kind of magick to work, whereas Practical Sigil Magick is a more advanced book.
