Ok, ik made a sigil with the wish to concsiously know my spiritual truth, haven't charged or burned it yet but anyway maybe i should have started with a tennisball or something . I'll lay down some tarotcards about this sigil tonight and see what it says. But if it says 'big mistake' can i just throw it away or is drawing it enough to get some reaction out of it? Is there a way to counteract the sigil with something?
thanks, very cool topic btw

If you're happy with the resulting song, and comfortable with it, would you post it online somewhere and post link to it here? I'd be very interested to hear the music, as I'm sure others may.

I'm not targetting this next comment at anyone in this thread, btw.
Peddling this stuff to people who could help themselves in more tangible, proven ways is, well, sickening. False hope is no hope at all, and until this stuff is demonstrated as working, it's false.

Ignorance? Hardly. It would be ignorance to accept this as fact without any actual study, to elevate personal experience above reasoned learning. This is the "Paranormal Studies" board and not the "Paranormal Unobjective Story-Telling" board, after all.
I am not closed-minded, and if any actual evidence existed that this stuff was true (as opposed to the stories we read here, which can easily be explained by more mundane explanations), I'd be one hell of a vocal supporter. As it is, no evidence exists beyond the "it worked for me!" claims.
Trying to evaluate ANYTHING from your own experience is bound to fail. Humans are ridiculously flawed when it comes to perceiving things we don't understand or are aware of. We see things that don't exist when we stare into the darkness. We forget things that mean less to us, and remember those things that leap out into expected patterns (the 11:11 clock thread is a great example of this). In short, one person observing themselves can only provide anecdotal evidence, whereas a group of people observed by an independent observer can produce actual evidence that people can learn from.
The only person who can learn anything from this thread is someone wishing to write a book about Sigil believers, and even then they'll only learn what some Sigil believe happened to them. No-one can learn a single thing about Sigil from this thread.
You seem to be the person who's made up their mind already - I simply pointed out the baseless assertions flying around here, which is a completely neutral statement, and you take offense. Maybe I touched a nerve in bringing this whole discussion into the daylight of pseudoscience.
My opinion is "anything can happen", however my standard of required evidence to believe something seems to be far higher than yours.
I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my comments, with hind-sight they are a bit on the crude side. My only intention was to try to raise this discussion from a campfire-side story-telling recital into actual study.
