I like these types of posts because most people overlook the simple things and this is where many will tend to struggle the most. I think the word ‘flash’ can be an unsuitable adjective as it gives the impression of flashing lights or something.
As already mentioned above, flashing just means that the whole of the sigil either at once, or in parts disappears and reappears again. After flashing it, I’ve had it literally in 3D giving the impression that its raised up off the paper to a degree.
I think many will become anxious and think after a period of time that it isn’t flashing mainly due to incorrect expectation and a fully attached state of consciousness. What I mean by this is that if you look at the sigil and try too hard, you will bring in the willpower which can keep the mind in a full state of attachment to the design, especially when you connect this to the anxiety of it not working.
(Isn’t this the same aspect responsable for many ritual failures due to willpower and anxiety…instead of just forgeting about it instead?)
I think the trick to it all is to relax, look at it with your eyes tilted upwards as this will immediately start putting the mind into the ‘Alpha’ regions. This definitely promotes a more relaxed state of mind without trying too hard to make it happen. Take the ‘will’ out of the equation by just looking at it in such a relaxed way, the image splits up but you just concentrate on one of those images and ignore the other.
This detached attitude along with the optical phenomena of movement will certainly get any sigil flashing. I do it all the time with other objects like my computer mouse > I stare at it in a relaxed state and the mouse tends to split up into two separate images but I only look at one and this makes it disappear pretty quickly.[/quote] Wow,this thread lifted my spirits!! I have been feeling so spiritually drained due to this married woman I have been sending my magical energy to. I summoned Lucifer this morning.
