So you have to wait an extra 30-45 seconds. There are several other things in the game that need to be tweaked especially in the later worlds that you have yet to come across. To wizards who have been all across the spiral, (i'm sure many will agree with me) there are several more important things to worry about. Just enjoy the effect of the sphinx head rising and the magic of the moment (in my opinion KI has only improved with their environmental art and effects as the game continues) but if it's really that big of a deal to you, mark the location to the Well of Spirits. problem solved.
