Sigil Making (by Nick Veit)
Having drawn this simple sigil I can spend some time meditating on it, following it with my eyes and even trying to make a mental image in my memory that I can hold.
A strong memory is a great asset to sigil making and can also result from it. You could make a simple sigil like this one and then close your eyes and try to bring it to mind as clearly as possible before opening your eyes and experiencing the subtle differences between your imaginative image and what you see with your eyes.
Try to imagine as vividly as possible before looking at the drawing. Really commit to it. You may think of your visualization as a loving offering to the reality of what you see with your eyes and the world to which it belongs. Honour what you see with your eyes for what it is—no more, no less. If you do this process a few times, you’ll probably find a sort of conversation happens between the sigil, your consciousness and your intention/affirmation etc.
This experience is often one that you can feel in your whole body as a form of tension and balance. For me this is very tactile and sculptural, but everyone is different.
Focusing on specific parts of the sigil is important for this process, as individual letters and words that form part of the original statement come to have more organic relationships with one another as parts of a whole.
If you experience morphing and shifting of different parts of the drawing within your visual field this is very good, and it is very beneficial for you to use the original image with its definite proportions and shapes etc., as a grounding point for this intensive movement and fluidity—have faith, honour and trust in the external reality of the physical drawing.
If and when your imagination becomes so strong that it seems as if the unified being that is your sigil is something that exists in our consciousness as an image in your mind’s eye, keep the image there in your mind’s eye and maintain the subtle awareness that “there is a drawing, this image that I see in my mind’s eye relates to something definite and concrete.”
After a little while, go do something else while holding this awareness for a few moments. Being keenly aware of the physical reality of the sigil is important, and it is a visceral experience which is key for developing a strong memory and imagination. After a short while, take a deep breath and let the image go.
