The Book of Shadows
What is the most important book that a Witch can have?
What is the most important tool that a Witch can have (other than themselves)?
The answer to both questions is the same -
How do I create a Book Of Shadows?? This is where it can get fun.
In some Trads once you become a member of a Coven you are shown the Covens Book Of Shadows -
But what if you are not part of a Trad that does this -
The same thing with any spells you do. Put a copy of them in here and have a note if they worked or not and if they didn't why you feel they didn't. Again you can write the spell or it can be a spell written for the group to us.
One thing it is not is a spell collectable book. You don't go on the Internet finding spells to fill your BOS. Besides being a waste of time -
**Every so often on a mailing list you will see a post where someone is upset -
Another thing you will want in your BOS and that is the LAWS. Now this will very from person to person. All should have the REDE and Three-
Now you can also have poems and recipes in your BOS. Information on Herbs, Stones, Color, Moon Phases, incense, candles and so on. You can have information on how to make tools, robes, jewelry, brews, candles and so on. Anything you feel you may need if it was the only book you had. You can have your history as a Witch or of your Coven. Information on dreams. As you can see, there can be a lot of information in it. Include drawings and photos. Whenever you get something from an outside source and you know what it is -
From your reading you can see there are more than just the BOS you can have that you write yourself. You can have you dream journal and a personal journal or it can all be put into your BOS.
One last thing -
Now what do you use for your BOS? Leather bound parchment -
