A sigil is a symbol that looks very random yet the meaning it holds is very powerful – at least to the person that is utilizing it. The word sigil was derived from the Latin work sigillum so sigil it is, but sigillum means seal. That was the original use of the sigil. Seals were used approximately 12,000 years ago. Sigils were used to focus intention and bring about desires and willful purpose. It helps to make your intentions ‘official’. The use of these sigils were intended to create a change in one’s life by manifesting desires via means of divination, universal materialization or spiritual entities.
In medieval times, the use of sigils became so popular it was highly used in the art of magic and other divination methods. It was at this time that sigils were commonly used to summon a spiritual entity – particularly a demonic one – but not in all cases. Ceremonial magic conjured these entities by creating sigils using a kamaes, otherwise known as a magic square. The magic square is a square grid that is filled with numbers. Each row, including diagonals, will add up to the same number. This is just a basic example but by utilizing this square, names of entities could be transformed into numbers which would then have a designated place on the square and then these points of designation would be connected to form a symbol which stood for the entity and thus making it the entities seal.
Most demons and angels have their own unique sigil in which you can use to summon these entities as it stands for who they are. Below are the sigils for 4 popular archangels.
There are also many sigils to summon demonic entities as well such as the two below - Amon and Lucifer.
In more modern times, the sigil is mostly used in what is referred to as chaos magic where the person wanting to manifest a desire in life such as a new job or anything else, can make their own sigil using either the magic square or designing one for themselves using a particular method. After designing the sigil, you can then charge and activate it using a slew of various and sometimes ‘strange’ methods. After these steps have been conducted, then the sigil is to be completely forgotten so it can then work behind the scenes to bring your desires into reality.
Many people, not just users of the magical arts, utilize sigils to help them focus on their intentions as it serves as a tangible way to connect their intention to the spiritual. Some just love making the sigils because it is fun and if you are not that creative, then there are even online sigil generators that can make simplistic but effective symbols for you. It is best though that you put your own flare into something important as it means more to you and when you infuse your intention with your strong emotion, it is much more powerful.
Sigils do have power behind them. A good example is that many large corporations use sigils in their logos. They will do many things to persuade buyers and one way is to tweak sigils that were once used for benign purposes to come up with their new logo. The Mercedes-Benz logo was very similar to the Triquetra symbol which was used to stimulate spiritual awareness by the Druids thousands of years ago. Mitsubishi is another company that has a similar sigil tweak. The television serious Charmed used the symbol of the Triquetra for the “power of three”. A lot of your gas station and oil company logos are tweaked from very old, ancient Masonic and Pagan sigils/symbology.
Companies use these sigils because they understand the power set behind them as they are part of the collective unconscious and are archtypes that are part of who we really are spiritually. They speak to our subconscious mind even though we are alert and while we are thinking for ourselves, these symbols are speaking to our subconscious all the while. It is usually our subconscious that heavily influences our decisions.
Sigils work by intent and you give it power by utilizing energy. The more skilled you are in your focused intention and pouring your emotional energy into it, as well as being able to send and receive energy – the more powerful your sigil will be.
You can use sigils to do amazing things like help to heal others. You can make a sigil for health and place that sigil on a person to do healing work or even place it on their picture if they are absent. This concept works with just about anything you can think of. People do not give enough credit to the power of intention and the manipulation of energy. The combination can literally change the path of anything and everything.
Linking sigils can work in the same manner. You can make two exact sigils for one intended purpose. You can leave one in any place where you want to draw upon the energy or purpose such as at a ley line, church, a vortex – and then you can keep one on your person or a special place designated for that sigil. The two will be inter-connected and one in the same. The more you use it, the more powerful it will become and so will your results. The quantum worlds work in a very similar way. Particles can connect all the way from the opposite sides of the universe if they are linked or made to effect each other, just as in quantum entanglement.
You can also keep a sigil to attract something, repel something or strengthen an area of your life. You can keep a protection sigil on you to repel a hex, attract money, remind you to be kind to yourself – there are literally a slew of ways a sigil can be of great use!
