The rules text on Gleam of Authority is as follows:

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature gets +1/+1 for each +1/+1 counter on other creatures you control.

Enchanted creature has vigilance and "{W}, {T}: Bolster 1."

If a creature were to gain more counters, would that enchantment also raise in power as well or just stay as it originally was?

  • I don't understand the first question; you appear to have accidentally some words. Effects from putting artifacts/enchantments where/on what?

  • For example, if I placed Feral Invocation on a creature, would the effect of "Enchanted creature gets +2/+2." count as a counter, or would the card have to specifically say "Add X +1/+1 counters to creature"?

    I would recommend asking just that question, because people have already linked to the answer to the first question.

    Then I would suggest asking a new question. If your two questions are sufficiently different from each other, it's better to have them in 2 separate threads.

Yes, the enchanted creature would grow more powerful.

From the Comprehensive Rules:

604.1. Static abilities do something all the time rather than being activated or triggered. They are written as statements, and they’re simply true.

611.3a A continuous effect generated by a static ability isn’t “locked in”; it applies at any given moment to whatever its text indicates.
