I have been getting into sigil magic and rune magic lately and I was wondering if you guys/girls have any experiences with sigils and runes that you would want to share on this thread. I'm just thinking this could be a "share your experiences" thread to talk about them! Blessed Be!
Once when i was trapping a benevolent spirit in a quartz crystal for a friend of mine i had my other friend who has alot of experience with sigils draw up one for protection to leave in my friends room for when after i was done because in my experience after any kind of magic working that involves that realm any spirit close enough to feel the energy of it will come to investigate what was happening. He said he could feel things lingering in his room after i was done but that they wouldn't bother him in anyway, unlike the one i trapped.
One particularly interesting time I was having a bad time with someone who just kept spouting off all kinds of negativity and hatred. It got so bad that the general atmosphere in the house was toxic with negativity. I finally got fed up to the point I couldn't stand it anymore. So I chose three runes from the elder futhark and made a charm.
While I was in the process of doing this I was extremely emotional about all of this. Which meant I was focused and clear about what I was doing and what I wanted done. I performed galdr as I etched the runes onto the charm. Anyway to make a long story short, the next time I came in contact with that person and she started spewing out that hate again she was stopped in mid setence and had the most shocked look on her face. I didn't hear any more of that for quite a while.
Nothing bad happened to her, just she was unable to be so hateful for a time. But it has since worn off. But even though she still does that, it is toned way down now.
I think it was as powerful as it was because of my very high emotional state. Anyway, that's my most dramatic story with rune magick.
I've been performing sigil magick for a while now, but I always try to keep it short-term. But I'd have to say the most powerful sigil I've created is one for lucid dreaming that gets me, at the very least, an extremely vivid dream, and at the most, a lucid dream in which I have complete control.
For sigil crafting you should focus the intent on the sigil as that's what helps embeds the magick into it. If you're having problems with a design then I recommend closing your eyes and imagining the stars above you. With this thought in mind focus on the intent and use a design that maps itself in the stars or just have a little fun with it. For instance, for lucid dreaming maybe 3 Z's connected like a set of stairs and an exclamation point going through the middle vertically.
I do a lot of sigils and usually combine them with a candle spell that coordinates with the sigil. I then use the candle to activate the sigil. I like the set it and forget it booster a Sigil gives to the slower acting candle spell.
