It must invariably always be the true Will of the individual when creating a Sigil. If it is a matter of question, or, let’s face it, outright self-deceit…It’s a guaranteed fail. In addition, once there’s an expression of intent in matters of empowering desire,seizing tangible reward, or destroying one’s enemies…it is up to the individual to exercise every, and any, mental / physical faculty within them (with or without magic) to work for what they want.
When true intent is inserted into the personal value of the created Sigil, I find that the symbolic nature, the image itself, can pierce into the subconscious…especially if it’s one you’re proud of lol. With focus assisted in part with symbolic gesture, and surely genuine desire, the outcome initially envisioned often reaches it’s intended climax.
Sigils are all around us. We’re bombarded by them on a daily basis. Their creators may not have designed in mind of chaos magic theory, but the power of symbolism and exposure, reigns dominantly over the world of subtle suggestion.
Here’s an example…
Mine Will Is Wisdom
Mine Wl s dom
Mn Wl s dm
Now you arrange the characters into a symbol, creation, drawing, whatever may hold significance to you. The more artistic and aesthetically pleasing it is, the more powerful it becomes in being recognizable (memorable) to the viewer. These work quite well in announcing intent, symbolizing accomplishment, and placing a ‘seal’ to your name (which is what ‘Sigil’ means).
Here’s a [very] quick example I created using the name Born Satanist…
