[quote=“Kyra, post:4, topic:810”][quote=“Frater Apotheosis, post:2, topic:810”]If your goal is complete you should burn the sigil, because it is an open door into your life.
Here’s a list of things that can happen, but are not guaranteed
- meeting spirits you didn’t want to see
- Prolonged mental stress
- Unexpected/unwelcome occurrences, either amplified by the open sigil, or created by it’s presence.
- increased danger with other sigils you open (it’s not good to keep opening and opening sigils, and in some circumstances can drive you insane).[/quote]
Can I ask, is this the same for any sigil, whether demonic or angelic? So far, I’ve burnt mine, but I think from what I’ve read, it should be ok to have one long term sigil plus maximum 2 more short term sigils, and of course check they don’t conflict?[/quote]
A quick note is try not to make long term goals in over 6 months time, anything beyond that is pretty far into the future, and could probably require other magickal action to help the desired result occur.
I have felt like there are some angels that I don’t enjoy working with, and sometimes it’s the greatest release to burn their sigils. I don’t say that lightly, because I’ve already approached several of the grand demons/spirits in the KOF and I got close enough to one, that I did repeated workings, even when the spirit possessed me I felt very at peace with it’s presence within and without me. After which I sadly relented on burning the sigil, only because of the circumstances it had on the house and my partner… Now, I will go into depth on that ritual more soon in another post I’m preparing.
But the bottom line is, you have to burn them eventually, otherwise you’re going to notice all kinds of strange effects. Having a magickal talisman, or a power item is one thing, but having a straight up sigil for a particular ritual(s) you need to burn it eventually.
There will come a point where retiring sigils is bullshit without you doing a banishing/cleansing ritual along with it, and the spiritual phenomenon will continue to get worse and worse until you are forced to do it, or you go insane…more or less. It really depends on the amount of spirits you contact, and the amount of magick you do. And don’t forget, if you didn’t cleanse and consecrate your ritual area FIRST, you’re in for more, especially if you do it outdoors.
Just the act of opening a sigil in a public area is enough to draw the presence of enough incredibly bizarre spirits who might be roaming around to you. When working with a powerful entity on my occult faculties strange results happened, I did this in a public space where I determined I could get away with it. I wanted to see just what roamed the skies But during this ritual I felt presences around me, many presences, of many kinds, I felt I was being watched and there were many beings around me. And as soon as I looked up into the air, I saw a host of strange spirits watching beyond the visual range, as well as some that were physically close by that I could feel that didn’t want to be seen. The phenomenon is incredibly noticeable to creatures that exist outside our perception, but this is also dangerous depending on what’s passing by, and where you’re doing it. I am certain a lot of different creatures saw me, including some flying creature with tentacles that I like to call the flying spaghetti monster. They took note of me, and REFUSED to leave my presence and stop following me until I banished them.
The best way I can describe it so far, is to say that there’s a strange event that happens really deep inside your mind, and our perception of reality creates reality. These rituals profoundly alter our conscious awareness and our ability to perceive the world, and to therefore to unconsciously construct it wherever we look. We see the world through a looking glass, and each time we do ritual we alter it. But as above so below, and as within so without. The places I’ve had ritual seem to be incredibly warped. The reason I say it’s “warped” is because in my experience to get something to manifest physically, alters the area on which it was done. It alters the fabric of reality, like space and time but possibly even farther outside our own awareness. The area of ritual can permanently alter the looking glass, and psychically sensitive people can pick up on that and are prone to having spiritual experiences in these areas.
I’ve played around with this a little bit, sigil magick has some very interesting properties, and opening a sigil isn’t just a simple task anymore for me. Where I open it, why I open it, why or why not I should call particular spirits for it, and whom can I open it around are all questions I ask. My cats used to go crazy when I’d open up sigils, they were very aware of it happening all the time. I used to need to barricade myself in a room, but eventually they just got mellow to the point where I could do it without disrupting their sleep if I really tried. One night I sat down next to one of my sleeping cats and did an opening. I was unaware I was being watched until my gaze was removed from the sigil, and I saw a pair of the most shocked feline eyes I’ve ever seen sitting next to me digging deep into my own eyes. My cats treat me very differently now, but I also have to consider that the inhabitants of the spiritual realm who come around might disturb them as they are more aware of the spiritual realm than the vast majority of humans.
Plus, once you use sigil magick or any other type of magick where you call on a spiritual presence, that presence is BOUND TO YOU FOREVER, and people are shocked to learn this, but…As their spiritual awareness increases, they often meet the entities they summoned in past lives, that have stood aware for hundreds or thousands of years waiting to be called again. Sure you can banish, but is your banishing designed to remove eternal bonds? So take care what you call on. It’ll be around forever, and unlike your room mate, it doesn’t get bored and leave ever. The only thing that changes, is your ability to see and feel it’s presence.
Either way, that’s my two cents.
Best of Luck,
