So I evoked Paralda for the first time Halloween night. Didn’t feel any presence, but I felt I successfully opened the sigil. I mentioned in another thread that I don’t see any flashing. I see the sigil lines disappearing and reappearing (although I’d hardly call this flashing), and coming off the paper in 3d-ish. I can get so focused on the static rain that I don’t see the sigil at all anymore really.
In any case, I went to bed and I started to lucid dream. As usual when this happens, I flew up in the air and went into my supervillian routine. This was encouraging. Eventually I wanted to wake up, and when I woke up -the whole room was flashing-. Just like a sign flashing, not like a strobe. In all of my years of meditation and deep trances I’ve never seen anything like it really. I played with it a bit, noticing when I woke up more the flashing went away, but if I tried to drift back to sleep it would start up again.
I consider this a success, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to replicate it by going into the TGS so far.
A question. Should I dispose of Paralda’s sigil and start a new one, or just keep this one open (for how long??) while I’m using him/her/it to aid in fine-tuning my clairvoyance?
