I live in a town with a bit of a nasty underbelly to it, in the last 6 months their have been at least 3 rapes an 1 murder.
It's like that in a lot of towns, everyone wants to be a hero but the people with good enough hearts don't live the lives to learn the skills for it.

I'm not even talking about special powers, although they may well be useful.

It strikes me that their aren't enough hero's in the world atm, or when they happen, they aren't strong enough.
I just don't want to keep having to worry about my friends walking home in the dark!

So i was thinking about making a stencil of a symbol that i could then spray-paint around my town,
Something that would give those who can an would help people the temporary ability to do so.

I suspect that empowering people anonymously will be far easyer/safer than empowering myself or specific known individuals.

Just consider the implications of a love spell that specify's an individual rather than allow the magic to decide impartially?
Anonymous magic is better suited to the complexity's of life, it sympathizes with the transpersonal maybe,
maybe i just don't want the direct karmic burden of changing someone's life.

Making this symbol a visual part of the town presents an opportunity to enhance its power as well as deliver it's effect,
although i fear it's already getting more complicated than my brain can handle lol.

All it might take is one person to walk down that dark ally in silence at the right moment to stop something terrible from happening,
Their are lots of good people out their, but sometimes they lack the luck to intervene,
sometimes the strength, the foresight or the confidence.
To enhance the strength of one good Copper to mentor the attitudes of hundreds of bent ones.

I'm not sure i have the strength or wisdom to do this, probably get sat on the pile of half-complete ideas that will never come to pass,
However i thought it a good enough idea to share.
I would love to have your thoughts and ramblings on anything whatsoever (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

dis/empowerment is something I'm good with. Sigils are limited in their power here, and to be honest, they're not the best medium of delivery in this case. I'm assuming you're working with human targets, and frankly, sigils just aren't...human enough for this.

I found this universal signature of I don't know what, best simply called The Song. I've figured out how to tap into it, and redirect its currents, resulting in either generating enough force to stop people in their tracks. I've found that out of some necessity, that its possible to bring normal people to the brink of spiritual overload, more or less making them act on what they feel is 'right.' That right is clearly a subjective varied thing, and the energy simply compels them to follow their feelings, but that boost is usually enough to send people down their merry way to pursuing their feelings and goals, ultimately becoming the 'heroes' you speak of.

One thing really fast, that state I speak of seems to exhaust people: you're literally bringing them to the brink of their potential in that specific moment, then holding it: its most likely dangerous to exist in that state as a user and a receiver for long periods of time.

I stumbled upon it during gnosis once, in that random state where I'm not exerting any control over anything, and gradually, it started trickling out of me then became this overwhelming blast. Its not about controlling this current, but rather watching where it goes: it doesn't require your existence to act once you achieve that state of mind.

You probably know by now that a human system is more powerful than anything. No individual can truly control one, as one they're a part of it, we intermittently submit to its influence, whether we fight against it or not. By changing the individuals gradually one by one like that, its liable to say that the system they live in gradually grows stronger. We're ultimately what seems to be a bunch of hive minds that bleed into other hive minds.

Thank you for your swift reply kaboom.
This 'Song' you speak of and the state of mind to achieve it sounds very similar to kind of 'channeling' a raw divine energy, is that a fair assumption?
While i kind of recognize what your saying its hard to put words to experience.
Kind of like letting your mind use its full potential while stepping into an observers frame of mind, i can see how that would help people effected by it trust their heightened instinct,
after all isn't half the trouble with esp/etc learning to trust the right instincts? sounds like giving them a massive momentary understanding of their current situation based on all that your mind/spirit can fathom.
I see why it would drain both parties after a burst of it.
I suspect that their bodys are not used to such a coordinated manifestation of consciousness, have you tryed using 'the song' in a different 'timescape'? (like being a user for 2hours for a receiver for 5hours the next day)
Very interesting, the gnosis you describe sounds familiar to a few key experiences i have had, but with different effects, strikes me as a very solid system of empathic harmonizing/healing.

My theory using the sigils was that viewers of the sigils in some small harmless way lend their mind to the empowering of an individual in a different 'timescape' (made up word)
Do you think a sigil could get an ordinary person to become a split second low-powered user? i might be kidding myself their,
since the predominant effect of a sigil is in a different frame of consciousness and to truly be a 'user' the whole consciousness needs to be in use.
Dam, i think your right, sigils may not do a great deal.

To be honest, to get quote my teachers, if they don't have it they weren't meant to until we give it to them. I know its kind of elitist, and cruel, but to be honest, they're not exactly human, and their values are clearly not human.

Still have to worry about mundane laws. While the intention is sound people would still consider it acts of vandalism. Not to mention superstition and paranoia could have the symbol viewed negativity and thus block out any positive energy you were hoping to eminatet from them.

LOL, well i'm willing to take a bit of a risk if i could stop someone from getting mugged.

I think i will tone down my ambitions on this subject, i've not got the skill for anything big, just something that will better the atmosphere and protect the innocent would do.

As for the positive block, you well might be right, but then i will be counting on a negative reaction from some people, i should consider all reactions.
On that note, their are hundreds of magic user's in this town and i dare say that most of them will be very interested/critical
so it's going to have to be quite a work of art unless i want some bad vibes my way.

There have been a lot of good (an famous) graffiti artists working on my town recently, blank wall's are thankfully becoming seldom, people will like it.
I'd rather not directly say what town i'm in but i will make it clear; think of the most famous occultist you can, it's where he died.
This place attracts a lot of extremes from all over.

Well as far as influencing more people and focusing attention they are pretty good.
On a personal level, they would be easier, maybe a little less effective for blessing people with 'powers' but it wasn't meant to get that intense.

When i get round to making a working prototype i will post a copy, may take a while.
