I just wanted to say that sigils are really great for helping to end fears.
I have been severely afraid of bees since I was a little kid. I would literally start crying and screaming and have a flat out anxiety attack if I saw one. Not just when I was five or six either. I was probably thirteen before I even attempted to stop this from happening.
As Spring was approaching, I created a sigil that held the meaning of “I am not afraid of bees, wasps, or other stinging insects.” This sigil was a must for me, simply because I love the outdoors and I garden a lot. I didn’t want to ward the bees away from me; I love what they do with the flowers and the plants around my home. I especially liked seeing them pollinate things I grew myself. (From a window, of course) I also felt connected to them, because we both liked the same things; lavender, the sun, and being outside. I wanted to get along with them.
So after I burned this sigil, I wasn’t completely convinced it would work. I thought it might take the edge off of my fear, but not completely get rid of it. And it did just that.
I would still feel my heart race and my breathing get shallow whenever I saw a bee, but I didn’t scream or run away.
So, I noted my progress, and created a stronger sigil. I put more energy and intent into it. And in no time, my fear of bees was almost completely obviated. I worked on it for a few weeks until I could go outside unafraid.
Now I can not only see a bee or wasp without freaking out, but I can also get within a few yards of them and just sit there without panicking or wanting to run away. I meditate around them, plant seeds, and sometimes harvest herbs if I don’t think they’ll mind.
Anyway, that’s one of my really positive experiences with sigils. I am very proud of myself for getting over this fear, and I’m glad I can finally be with the bees.
