What makes the Sigil Witchery method so effective? What are other steps you can take to make your sigils more effective? We take a 6 minute dive into getting quicker, better results. (This is the first of several videos I’ll be posting regarding my method of crafting sigils.)
Post-video notes below.
Note 1: There are MANY methods for crafting sigils – ceremonial, chaos, charts, etc – they all work, and how well they may work for you depends a lot on what suits your mind and abilities best. A lot of them you might consider a bit easier/faster than my method, at least when you’re first learning it. But generally that initial speed up front vs. having more thorough/effective results balances out in the end – the classic story of the hare vs. the tortoise again.
Note 2: I started talking about the “stuff” of sympathetic magic and got a bit sidetracked – where I was going with that was these physical/tactile things help our brain visualize better – they give form/correlation to what we’re looking for, which helps the process. The power doesn’t reside solely in those objects, colors, oils, herbs, etc – though they definitely have an essence of their own. The root of the power lays within us. But in a society that constantly tells us not to trust our gut, follow our intuition, or believe in metaphysics, that can be a battle to fully grasp. The visual and tactile things can help stimulate our brain and make the work more “real” for us.
Note 3: Be wary of folks who claim to be teaching sigil magick, but don’t advocate for understanding where sigils come from and why.
Also! “Sigil Witchery” won the COVR Gold Award in the Witchcraft category this past June at INATS!
