Sigils of Power and Transformation FAQ
This page is only for questions relating to Sigils of Power by Adam Blackthorne.
PLEASE READ THE BOOK FULLY BEFORE POSTING.
MOST QUESTIONS ARE ALREADY ANSWERED THERE.
Questions are moderated and may take a few hours or more to appear. If yours doesn’t appear, it may be because it’s already been answered in the book or in this FAQ. Questions that speculate about theory won’t be posted as the focus has to remain on practical magick.
This page will be open to new questions from time to time. A thorough reading of the book and some patient contemplation will answer almost any question you have. Please read this FAQ and also read the main Gallery of Magick FAQ before asking a question.
Q: Step 4 seems quite powerful. Can I use it with other magick?
A: Yes. Whenever you use the ’emotional transmutation’ found in other books, you can add Step 4 from Sigils of Power. It is one of the greatest secrets of magick that we know.
Q: Why are some of the powers the same as powers in other books?
A: This book contains completely new rituals for health, personal healing and many other areas. There is also a lot of overlap with other books. As I say in the book, having more magick to use is a good thing, and this is a completely different method of magick that may (or may not) get you better results. The overlap could have been left out to make a shorter book, but that would have meant withholding a lot of magick from you, which I’m sure would have caused more complaints. However, the book is not cheap, so before you buy you might want to have a look through the Look Inside feature on Amazon, or download a preview and check out the contents. It won’t appeal to everybody, but if you’re drawn to this, it can do so much for you. There are at least 30 powers that aren’t covered anywhere else in our oeuvre, and many more new powers than that, if you notice that that powers are actually quite different in the way they are applied and the way they manifest.
Q: Why is the book so expensive?
A: We try to keep price low, but the large number of high quality images makes physical and ebook distribution much more expensive. The other option was to print small sigils and cramped text, but we’d prefer to sell a superior product, because that works well for you. Also, if just one power actually works, that’s probably worth the price of the book. As I write this answer I’ve just seen a review on Amazon that says, “Getting money out of the blue worked with my first try!!!!!!!. Unreal !!!” There are many similar comments.
Q: There seems to be a sigil missing. After the title Inspiring Others, there’s no sigil.
A: All the sigils are there. Inspiring Others is a section title – so it has no individual sigil. As you can see when you read that page, it introduces the ideas that follow and does not describe and individual power. Within the section called ‘Inspiring Others’ there are several chapters, all of which have their sigils. If in doubt, have a look at the Table of Contents on the Look Inside (top left of Amazon sales page) which sets out the Contents more clearly than they ever look in an ebook. The section titles (each with chapters containing the sigils) are: THE MAGICK OF THE MIND, INSPIRING OTHERS, EXTENDED PERCEPTION, FORTUNE, LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP, BREAKTHROUGH MAGICK, SPIRITUAL MAGICK, PERSONAL STRENGTH, PEACE MAGICK, PROTECTION MAGICK, PERSONAL HEALING, HEALTH MAGICK, WISDOM AND EDUCATION, BUSINESS AND FINANCE and EMPLOYMENT MAGICK.
Q: How do I use this magick to help other people?
A: Please read the chapter called The Flow of Magick.
Q: There are many ‘sigil charging’ methods in other Gallery books. Can they be used on these sigils?
A: They can, but the purpose of charging is not to make the sigil more powerful, but to make your connection to it clear. We talk of charging the sigil with energy, but that energy is a way of making sure you are on the same wavelength as the sigil, that you have absorbed the sigil into your consciousness and that it’s clearly connected to you. If you’re trying to make the sigil more powerful, you need to ask yourself why. If this desire comes from doubt or fear that the magick won’t work, or an attempt to force the magick to work faster and more effectively, it may not be the best thing to do. A relaxed approach, where you assume the magick just works is better than trying to bash the magick into existence. Magick already exists, and only needs to be experienced. But, if you enjoy the sigils, feels a connection to them and want to charge them to feel a stronger connection, you can. I should make it absolutely clear that this is an optional extra. Use the book as written and it works. But if you want to you can use Light From The Dark from Magickal Riches, or the Image Fire technique from Wealth Magick, and there’s also a technique called Magickal Chaos Energy in my book The Master Works of Chaos Magick. In all cases, perform any charging before Step 1 of the ritual. Once the charging is complete, continue the ritual as usual.
