Creating Your Own Book of Shadows

The Book of Shadows (or BOS) is a spell book and magical diary or
journal of a Witch or Wiccan. Some are passed down through Covens
or from one individual to another, but today, solitary
practitioners compose most.

Your BOS can be a three-ring notebook, a bound blank book or even a computer or mobile tablet you can enter data in. Choose something that you enjoy writing in. You’ll record celebrations, ritual activities, spells and their results in this book. As you explore your path and discover what works best for you, your book will grow. Be sure to date your entries so you can preserve the details of your communication with the Divine, and create a chronicle of your journey … your own personal grimoire.

If you’d like additional help with whae to put in your BOS, we suggest you read Wicca A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner. It offers options for creating and blessing your book of shadows. You’ll also find the essential knowledge you need to devise your own magical tools and attain the spiritual goals of your personal journey.
