Life is short. Fill it with things that make you happy. A life filled with joy, plenty and wonder is a good place to start. That intention is what this sigil expresses.
It’s always interesting seeing how people discover Sigil Daily. Some people find us through our social media — Facebook, Pinterest and Tumblr in partcular — but most people discover the site through simple Google searches. Thanks to the wonders of that search data, we can even see exactly what words brought people to the site. Not surprisingly, people are often looking for sigils related to love and money.
“Money sigil,” “wealth sigils,” “sigils for money” and other variations are extremely common results. While sigils for growing wealth and financial success this isn’t the focus of Sigil Daily, it’s clearly on a lot of people’s minds. Honoring that interest, we present a slightly revised and updated version on one of our earliest sigils, “My financial prosperity will grow.”
Practice makes perfect? Not always. To make a big breakthrough, often you must surrender yourself to the practice and the process. Only by mastering the fundamentals — the boring and tedious stuff — can you make it to that next vantage point. It’s not just practice that makes perfect, it’s that intentional and focused kind of “perfect practice” that changes your results.
It shouldn’t be too surprising that an art-focused project like Sigil Daily gets more than a few requests from artists. While we always encourage artists to create their own sigils, some of them just prefer the look and feel of a Sigil Daily original. This sigil goes out to all those wonderful artists. Not just visual artists, but anyone who imbues their work with creativity, heart and soul. All art matters, even if the process of creating it can be frustrating, painful and costly in every imaginable sense. Keep it up.
It’s easy to see the accomplishments of others, and even easier to overlook our own. From feeling shut out and shouted down in a team meeting at work, to simply not getting the same number of likes on social media as our “friends,” validation can be hard to come by sometimes.
But here’s the thing: Everyone feels like that. Those people who seem to effortlessly generate applause and accolades? They work harder at it than everyone, often because they’re more desperate for approval than anyone else.
Wouldn’t it be better to not chase the approval dragon? Wouldn’t it be nice to know — to truly feel in your heart — that your contributions matter? No more worrying. Instead of burning your mental and emotional energy trying to get a nod of acknowledgement, you can now focus on something even more important: Being present in the moment.
It’s safe to say that the urge to dance — to respond to the emotional pull of music through movement — is a trait that all of us share. Every culture has some form of dance. And it’s not always just about the music, either. We dance in victory, to blow off steam, and to express joy. But some of us just aren’t comfortable getting our groove on around other people. We only dance when we think no one is looking. Often, we look at those who can dance anywhere, moving without thinking, with just a touch of envy.
Here’s the truth: You can dance. In your own way, you always can. It may not be the graceful, fluid movements or killer dancefloor moves you have in your head, but it still counts. What matters is the feeling, and letting yourself experience the release of that brief moment of movement. Yeah, you might look silly sometimes. That’s the point. Joy is silly. Happiness is silly. Being a human being, for all it’s serious moments, is a pretty silly thing if you can take a step back and look at it. Embrace it. And then dance.
