Although amnesia is helpful, especially for the beginner, it is not essential in making your magick work, and is usually not applicable when you've used a method that rests solely on a physical experience, such as the sympathetic approach. What happens when you remember an act of magick? Remembering a magical act or experience is similar to the beginner visualising a sigil without gnosis. You will tend to create an instant magical result: you hope your magick works.
Experience has shown that you can even get someone else to decide what your sigil means, and it still works. For more on this, investigate Remote Viewing. EXERCISE 5 1.
