People say that when doing a sigil magic the last stage is to forget the original intent. But as you know the mind is a bitch. It tries to focus more on things we consciously try to stay away from. Any suggestions?

Lots! I published several of them in my second book, Magic Power Language Symbol. But in brief, forgetting isn’t the only way to avoid the central problem, which is obsessing about a problem and not giving the solution time to work. You can, for example, simply distract yourself from your desire. Working really hard on forgetting your sigil is often counter-productive, because — well, don’t think of the elephant. Immediately, you think of an elephant. Similarly, don’t think about your sigil, and you will automatically think about your sigil. The real key is to consider the work a fiat accompli, and just not worry about it. It’s worry that’s the real problem, not remembering.

  1. Thanks for the answer. I will take your suggestion into consideration next time I experiment with a sigil.

  2. Great point! I agree, it is maddening. I have a really dumb technique I use personally, and it works like a charm perhaps because it is dumb. I linked to this post of yours on my own blog (hope that is ok) in discussing how I shift focus. Wanted to thank you for bringing it up here, the ‘done deal’ aspect is a much better way to contextualize than ‘forgetting’ and this was helpful.

  3. Yeah, exactly. Its not about forgetting – its about letting go and letting the Universe work out the details on its own terms. This frees your magick from sterility and invites creative and effective solutions that are outside of your own paradigms and mindsets.
