Hi! This is my first post on this forum.
From the first time I read Works of Darkness, one technique that fascinated me was sigil magick. I am not talking about Austin Spare’s technique, but of the opening of angels and demons’ sigils and seals, which is an original technique I have never read of in any book except E.A.‘s and has the same name of the former one. (I want to avoid any confusion with Spare’ technique, in which I am not interested. Both techniques have little in common)
If you don’t know it, this technique is found in E.A.'s first four books (Works of Darkness, Baneful Magick, Evoking Eternity and The Spider and the Green Butterfly). It is even mentioned somewhere in Questing after Visions.
I have tried a few times without any success. Once, I used Methsan’s sigil from Kingdoms of Flame to curse an enemy, but nothing happened. I used Paimon’s sigil to make break some couple more or less a year ago. After one month, they broke up, but I am not sure if it was due to the sigil opening. Finally, I used Sallos’s sigil (19th spirit of the Goetia) to make some girl become infatuated with me. There are one or two things that could be considered as signals that it was working, but I never could make her love me, which was the original goal.
I know many of you are more involved with E.A.'s workings than other people in other forums, so I want to read from you what have been your successes and failures with this technique and what do you consider can be the commons errors in opening sigils, so I can learn how to apply it effectively. If the same E.A. can give me some useful suggestions, they are all welcomed
I want to use this technique for manifesting many things in my life. I would like to buy The Book of Azazel, but I don’t have enough money and learning how to use correctly Sigil Magick I could manifest some dollars and buy it.
I would like to know also of your experiences with E.A.‘s method of scrying given in Works of Darkness in the eighth chapter, in which the sigils of Sastan (Kingdoms of Flame) and Mepsitahl (Konstantinos’ Summoning Spirits) are used to awake one’s scrying abilities.
I also would like to know if someone has used Abramelin’s Squares along with this method.
