How Do I Make my Own Celtic Sigil?
First, you have to be calm and at peace. Any negative energy will take away the effectiveness of it. Clear your mind, keep all the bad thoughts out and write down a sentence that describes yourself. It can be "I feel empathetic of my surroundings" or "I'm happy and content". Whatever comes to your mind will work as it's the most authentic and original feeling.
Then, take out all the vowels in the sentence so only the consonants remain. Then draw the symbol by connecting the consonant on the graph in order. That's your own Celtic sigil. This is a proper, formal way of making your own Celtic symbol and is often adopted by people trying to be original in creating a symbol that best describes themselves.
Another way that is sometimes mentioned is to let the symbol come to you. Clear your mind and sit in silence, preferably at night as the energy is usually amplified at night. Then close your eyes and clear all thoughts. After a while, whatever symbols come to your mind will be your Celtic sigil. It is said that it works better if you have a pen and a paper to draw it out as you close your eyes. You don't feel to see to draw the symbol. It's all about the spiritual connection so your symbol will be even more original and real to nature if you don't look at it when you draw it out.
There are more than just one way to create your own Celtic sigil. Whatever you choose, you can always land on similar meanings with your symbols as they all represent you.
