“The Book of Shadows of any magickal practitioner is as unique as their fingerprint. Some use it as a journal, some use it as a spell book. Some people don't feel the need to keep one at all.
What does yours look like? Do you hand write it? Is it typed? Do you let others handle it? How is it set up...a journal or a spell book? Both? Was yours given to you by someone? Today's prompt is all about that magickal book and what it means to you. Enjoy!”
mine is a 3 inch 3 ring binder, black. parts are handwritten, parts are typed.
i don’t think i have let anyone else touch it.
how it’s set up is what i’m proud of.
the first part is “Magickal Workings” that list how to do a ritual, with a guild line and then in detail on how to cast and call and invoke.
the 2nd part is “Correspondences” mostly herbs and colors.
next is “Spells, Rituals, and other Magickal Trappings.” should be self-explanatory what it is.
the last part is my “Bibliography”. everything in my BOS, rather i wrote it myself or i got it from a book or the net, has its sources cited. i know where i got it from.
my BOS is not my journal. it’s all magick, all the time.
and i made it all myself.
