A long time ago I tried some Sigil-based magick. I believe that technically, one's "intent and focus" bring about their reality, and so it really
doesn't matter whether you are using Sigils, or a meditative Rosary, or Archetype Meditations which I currently use (book by Edwin Steinbrecher,
though my archetypes are seldom tarot/astrology which are merely 'examples' in it). It all works.
One of the most helpful things about the sigil work is that it was pretty specific.
One of the lessons I learned from that and other things is that it is important to ask for the end result. In other words, if you really want a
certain temporary night job, so you can make x amount of money, so you can buy a new refrigerator -- ask for the new refrigerator. Not the job, not
the money. The end result desire is what to focus on.
Kinda the same with lottery, I might add. If what you really want is a better car or a house by the sea, ask for those, not the lottery.
I believe this is probably so for two reasons: the first that your true desire is what has the most power, hence the end-result is the focus; the
second that your guides / the universe / chance probability (choose one to your liking) may have many different ways of fulfilling your request.
The number of things 'manifested' in my life is too numerable to even begin to count. The best examples sound so impossible nobody would believe me
anyway. From minor trivial things to major things, you can bring anything into your reality if you (a) focus upon your desire for it, (b) create
something that helps to remind you or hold your intent [sigils work just fine for this, talismans, etc.], (c) ACCEPT that however it comes about it is
just fine, don't hold onto it, release the desire and 'allow' time and reality to work it out on their own, and (d) act-as-if it already has come
to be or is totally expected.... suspend disbelief.
I might add that all the Jane Roberts 'Seth' work supports this general sequence too.
Glad you're having fun. :-)
To some of the other comments: I think you should wish for whatever you like. I consider the idea that one is not allowed to do anything nice for
oneself to be a negative belief system perpetuated upon humanity by the culture of the church, in which all money went to them and everybody else was
supposed to be happy in poverty. That whole born-in-sin thing makes the first fundamental emotion of everything 'guilt'. Bad stuff IMO.
There is a difference between a negative "greed" -- which usually implies that nothing is enough and/or that it comes at someone else's expense --
and a positive desire to simply experience something or experience having something. There is no sin in wanting to feel happy, or have something neat
that you don't currently, or improve your lot in life. If you believe these things are bad you will seriously inhibit your ability to manifest,
and/or concurrently manifest what might seem like retroaction on them or punishment or karma. No need for all that.
