Keeping it Conscious Episode 5 – The Power of Symbols & The Art of Sigil Making

Symbols represent ideas and convey these ideas quickly. Like a number is just a symbol for the various computations of 1. Without having to add one, nine times, you just see the number 9, and its instant. Some symbols are beneficial, like the stop sign for example, but then there are other symbols like the cross or the swastika that manipulate the masses.

Even a letter is a symbol that forms other symbols we call words, that encode data without having to say the definition everytime we speak or see it. Instead of saying that man was walking very fast, we can make it shorter by just saying ‘running’. When you use a symbol you don’t have to think, your subconscious responds and does the thinking for you. So many symbols in the world are placed before you to control your subconscious mind. For this reason, it is important to begin to create your own symbols to activate your personal subconscious. When you realize that through your own imagination you can create powerful changes in your life. By taking back the power of symbolism and creating your own definitions for symbols, you begin to create your reality.

Impacting the subconscious mind is based upon its ability to accept the symbology you feed it. Symbols then are not to be worshipped but understood and directed. So many of us look to symbols and mythologies as powerful, if you take a step back, ultimately it is you that is giving them the power to your thoughts. Understanding the different modalities and ways to impact your subconscious mind allows us to experiment and see what the symbols truly mean, to us. This brings us to the topic of journaling and documenting our experiments, in order to define what these symbols mean to you personally. It could be that working with the cross brings you financial prosperity, or the swastika brings you inner peace and harmonious relationships. My point is you don’t truly know until you have done the work and came up with your own conclusions.
When creating symbols you have to work with them in your mind and properly identify the what, the who, the how, and the why. Creating an intention through power and assuredness raises the level of impact. Creating an intention through doubt and halfheartedness reduces the impact. One has to learn to put complete trust in their inner power and use the correct symbolism to activate it and get to our personal desires. Ase. Fill your mind with positivity and put decent work into creating the symbol and the story around you. Peace is the power, always remember.

Understanding sigil making, there is no correct or incorrect way to make one. A sigil is a word taken from Latin which means seal, a symbol used for magical purposes. A sigil has as much power as you the imagined gives it. I find it important to add that there are no pre-made sigils made for your personal success. Whoever made the sigil did not have you personally in mind, even if they did, you could never truly know their intent. Human beings live in multiple dimensions and most of them cannot be reached on a mundane level. To deal with yourself and your reality, I feel it is best to create your own sigil that impacts your own subconscious mind. The primary power in a sigil is derived from the fact that you created it, charged it, and it benefits you. Once the sigil is created you charge it through ritual then you forget it. This done because we want to forge this symbol and it’s intent in your subconscious mind without the conscious mind getting in the way.  The subconscious is our GPS, the sigil is the address, once the address is on the GPS all we have to do is follow the directions. How much good would the address be in traveling? Of course, it is the destination but just knowing it won’t get you there, you have to have directions to the destination. In a nutshell, this is the benefit of sigil magic in our magical practices. Build up the sigil, allow yourself to reach an altered state of consciousness, focus on the sigil, close the ritual, then burn the sigil, and go about your life. This is about autosuggestion, autopilot, giving yourself a direction without having to consciously will yourself there. Just flow with it. In creating your intentions avoid the words no and not, the subconscious doesn’t recognize those words and you will not like to attract that which you don’t want. Saying things like “I don’t want to get swarmed by bees” the subconscious reads it as ” I want to get swarmed by bees” and then your fucked. Recognizing that we don’t want to bring trauma into our magical practices, trauma reminds us of what we don’t want, and when we bring what we don’t want into magic, guess what you get? More of what you don’t want. So it is always best to concentrate on the magic of what you want. This is a more potent way to handle money, love, and overall life problems. By using a magical approach to impact the subconscious mind you will be amazed at how powerful you are.
