Book of Shadows Spell

The Power In Your Book Of Shadows (And Where To Find It)

There is a big misconception these days about what a Book of Shadows actually is – and what it means to your Magick work.

Popular movies and T.V. shows have painted a picture of a Book of Shadows being something dark – and almost wicked. There is also a common belief (for some reason) that there is only one Book of Shadows.

The truth is, every Witch should have his/her own Book of Shadows, and keep their spells within. A Book of Shadows that is unique to YOU.

You see, your Book of Shadows will be the core of everything you do in Witchcraft. Think of it is a big diary of all of your Magick work, and even your daily struggles, goals, and dreams. It is good practice to make an entry every night before drifting off to sleep, and also to record all of your Magick workings.

You will record all of the spells and rituals you have learned, and you will also record the results of the spells. From herbs you use, to how you got your name, to your deepest feelings and emotions, to bits and pieces of Magickal advice you have received – everything should be recorded.

After a time, you will realize that your Book of Shadows will begin to take on a life of it’s own, and will grow in power. It will actually begin to help you connect with Magick energy – just by having it near.

The actual Book of Shadows itself can be something as simple as a 3-ring binder or notebook. Some Witches even keep their Book of Shadows on their computer, and burn it onto a CD to back it up.

But I have found that by getting more creative, and making your Book of Shadows unique to you – it’s power will increase dramatically.

Putting your own creativity into the creation of your Book of Shadows is one of the many “keys” to success in your new Magick path. Decorate the cover and pages with things that are symbolic to who you are as a person.

The more “emotion” you can build into your Book of Shadows, the more successful your spells will be. It will help to forge a tight bond between you and the Magick energies of the universe.

A simple way to “personalize” your Book of Shadows in this way is to follow these easy steps:

Step 1:

You will need to get the following materials: a 3-ring binder, a 3 ft. length of batting, hot glue, regular glue, scissors, poster paper (thicker than normal paper, almost like thin cardboard), and a piece of fabric big enough to “cover” both the inside and outside of the binder.

Step 2:

Make a trip down to your local Office store, and select a 3-ring binder that you feel good about. Pick your favorite color – one that resonates most with you.

Step 3:

To get the fabric, batting and hot glue, you can go down to any local art store or fabric shop. Make sure to select a fabric that is something you’d want to have on the cover of your Book of Shadows. It should be something that speaks about who you are.

Step 4:

Your next step is to open the binder and lay it on top of the batting. You want to trace the outline of the binder onto the batting (with a felt tipped marker).
