Click here for the previous day.
I’ve talked about sigils fairly in-depth before, but today I get to use one in a very specific way– creating it, empowering it, and applying it to an area. The instructions say chalk, but, helas, I am chalkless. I could use one of my pastels instead, but I have a feeling my rental company would have mixed feelings about this.
Therefore, I am going to do what I do best: improvise.
In lieu of chalk, I’m using a bar of soap. Follow me on this.
After a pretty bad car accident when I was a teenager (I was struck while walking my bike across the street, and ended up with some pretty gnarly leg and neck injuries) I deal with a not-insignificant amount of pain. Like anyone, I have good pain days and bad pain days. Having intracranial hypertension doesn’t seem to have helped, since now I just get joint pain and high pressure headaches when it rains. On my worst days, I have a hard time keeping myself from just crawling into a warm bath to huddle like a tiny, cranky ball of misery.
So, I’ve created a sigil to help with pain relief. And I’m going to soap that sucker onto the bottom of my tub. In the future, I might even lay out a line of epsom salts in the shape of the sigil before I fill the tub with water– epsom salts are pretty baller for sore muscles, and a pain-relieving sigil can’t hurt, yeah?
I won’t show the sigil I created here, because it’s pretty personal and I don’t want someone to pick it up when it probably won’t be terribly effective for them. If it sounds like something you could use and you’d like some help creating one, feel free to drop me a line!
Do you ever chalk your sigils anywhere? If so, for what purpose?
