Once you have decided upon your intent, it can then be turned into a symbolic analogue or code - a signal on which you can focus varying degrees of attention on, without recalling your initial desire. The most common approaches to this are:
(a) Monogram - write out your intent, knock out all repeating letters, and from the rest, design a glyph.
(b) Mantra - write out intent, scramble into meaningless phrase or word, which can then be chanted.
In addition to the above, you can also use other media such as smell, taste, colours, body language, and hand gestures.
4.Intense Gnosis/Indifferent Vacuity
Sigils can be projected into the mutliverse via an act of Gnosis - usually, but not necessarily, within some kind of ritual/magical context. Popular routes to Gnosis include: spinning, chanting, dancing, visualisation, sensory overload or sensory deprivation, and sexual arousal. The other 'altered state' is that of Indifferent Vacuity - a sort of 'not-particularlybothered' state. An example of sigilisation by this route is to doodle sigils whilst listening to a talk which is boring, but you have to take notes on.
