After you are done charging, and filling your sigil with your intent you must go through the process of activating it. Activation is the process of firing your sigil into the universe along with the act of allowing the sigil to work in your subconscious. There are two types of ways to activate your sigil. These two types of ways are passive, and active sigil activation. Both of these types of ways have their own benefits, and it is important to understand how to use both of them, so that you can pick the right one for the job.

Active Sigil Activation:

In active sigil activation the energy is usually released all at once, or in a very immediate fashion. This type of activation is usually going to be done through the act of destruction of the sigil, so that all the energy that has been charged into it can be released and fired into the universe, and your mind can greatly actively focus on the sigil that has been marked upon your subconscious. This is usually going to be used for such sigils that are used once on one particular thing. This is really good for quick, and fiery manifestation, but it will go out, and try to complete its task, and then burn out rather quickly. This type of method should be used on things that you want done that are pretty direct, and will only need to be impacted once.

Ways to activate active sigils:

  • Putting the sigil on a piece of paper, and burning it in fire.
  • Putting the sigil on a piece of paper, and submerging it in water until it dissolves.
  • Putting the sigil on a piece of paper, and ripping the paper in half.
  • Drawing the sigil in to the sand at the beach, and letting the sea wash it away.
  • Drawing the sigil in the air with your energy, and pushing through it in order to destroy it.
  • Making the sigil out of dust, or powder, and then blowing it away to destroy it.
  • Making the sigil in your mind, and then imagining it being destroyed to activate it.
  • Putting the sigil on food then eating it.
  • Drawing the sigil on a firework, and then set it off.
  • Drawing the sigil on a balloon, and then pop it.
  • Drawing the sigil on your body, and then wash it away.
  • Singing the sigil out loud for all to hear.
  • Playing a music, or an audio sigil out loud for all to hear.
  • Place the sigil on a piece of paper, and rip it up.
  • Draw the sigil on a rock, and throw it in a body of water.
  • Putting the sigil on a cigarette, and then smoking it.
  • Write it on a dry erase board, and then erase the sigil.
  • Take a picture of the sigil, and then delete the image.
  • Writing it on the condensation of a window, or mirror, and then allowing it to disappear.
  • Writing it in the air with a sparkler, and allowing it to eventually fade.
  • Vibrating the sigil with your voice.
  • Signing the sigil with sign language.
  • Using a hand tapping sigils.

Passive Sigil Activation:

In passive sigil activation the energy is usually released overtime through a very moderate, and controlled fashion. This method is done through the act of keeping your sigil around, so that it can continue to work, and releases energy when it is needed. This may be continuously releasing energy overtime, or being triggered at a certain point to release energy. This makes for a very Earthy form of manifestation. This allows this sigil not to use all the energy at once, but to continue working for an extended period of time, or only when it is triggered. This also allows the sigil to work in a more dynamic way allowing it to work to fulfill its desire, or intent in a more ever-present, and passive manner. It will be use only when it is needed, making that sigil more versatile in its actions. Passively activated sigils will always be active, unless they have a trigger. You will have to recharge your sigils if you are using this method every once in awhile after they get low on energy, unless they have a source to draw energy from.

Ways to activate Passive Sigils:

  • Putting the sigil on a piece of paper.
  • Drawing the sigil on your body.
  • Getting a tattoo of the sigil on your body
  • Carving sigils into a candle, and lighting the candle.
  • Carving sigils into soap, and washing your body with the soap.
  • Making a sigil amulet.
  • Writing, or carved the sigils upon wood, or stones.
  • Drawing it in energy upon something
  • Placing the sigil as your computer, or phone background.
  • Posting an image of the sigil online.
  • Drawing the sigil with chalk on the street, or sidewalk.
  • Having a piece of clothing with the sigil on it, or sewn into it.
  • Drawing it in a public place.

If you have any other methods of activation, I would love to hear about them?



  1. pls i want to know if i get the picture of a sigil online and i want to activate it and use how do i go about,which step.
    i will be very happy for ur help. thank u


  2. I actually do have one question. In reading this article, it clarified a lot for me about passive sigil activation more than active (because I’m very familiar with active sigil work). In the event that the passive sigil would need to be recharged, how/what are ways that you can recharge it? I have a sigil in the form of a tattoo, that has numerological meaning behind it & incorporates runes as well. Since a passive sigil is meant to release energy over time, or when triggered, I was wondering if you could give me any tips about how to recharge it?

    Thank you! 😀


    • In order to recharge the sigil my friend all you would have to do is go through a charging method that could be done on your skin. Which could be something as simple as meditating while focusing on the sigil, and its location on your body, or expose that part of your body so people would be able to interact with that sigil. Any charging method that could be used to charge a Sigil could also be used to recharge the sigil my friend. You will be able to find more Methods for charging here at this link:


  3. One thing that i usually do is I carve my sigil of choice into ice and put it in my cup of coffee or tea in the morning and drink it 🙂
