A sigil is an emblem to which magical power is imputed. I use a method developed by the occultist Austin Osman Spare. Basically, you write down your wish or desire, remove the repeated letters, and recombine the remaining letters into a symbol. Next you have to cast the sigil. Spare recommended visualizing your sigil during a "no-mind" experience such as one achieves during meditation, for instance. He thought the most expedient method, however, was to visualize the sigil during the moment of orgasm. A lot of Spare's writing can be found online. I'd start here: http://hermetic.com/spare/ I also recommend Grant Morrison's essay, "Pop Magic," which was anthologized in Disinformation's Book of Lies.
