BOOK OF SHADOWS
know that a lot of people use the Book of Shadows on-line for their spells,
since I already have a spell index page up I thought I would use the bos, for
somethig a bit different. On this page I will give you a little bit of information
on what else you could keep in your book other than spells.
1.Spells-Keep your spells
together in your BOS for quick reference, also you must
consecrate your book before using it :) check out the consecration ritual on my
2.Dreams-For those of you who can remember their dreams (wish I could
remember more of mine) this is a good place to write them all down.
3.Herbs-Keep a refernce of hers in your book, you do not need to list all
if you dont want to, just list those that you would use most often.
4.Stones-Again keep a refernce of stones, the ones you use most or all
again, your choice.
1 5.Poetry-This is a great way to keep your poetry and personal writings together.
6.Write down a quick reference on the use of Wiccan tools. When you need
something unfamiliar you will be able to refer to your book.
7.Recipes-This is a great place to write down you recipes for different
just the special cakes ect. things you might like to have after or during rituals.
a page on the Wiccan Rede (good way to remind yourself not to do
anything inappropriate if you are angry with someone!)
9.A magickal alphabet is always good to have a quick reference to.
10.Candle colors and correspondences.
11.If you work with Pendulum magick write down your results.
12.Oils-Keep a refernce of those you use most often, or more if you wish.
13.Incense-Again, quick refernce your choice as to how much you want to put in.
14.Write down in you BOS the results of the spells or rituals you do.This
they didnt work out quite like you expected you can read over the spell and
make changes for the next time around.
15.Write down any researched
concerning the supernatural. I keep a diary of the
cememtery pictures I took explaining each picture.
16.Write down all the mixtures and potions that you make. That way when
\ want to do them again all the information will be quickly available.
Your BOS is almost like an extension of yourself. Important parts of your
will be stored in this book so take good care of it.
I know that on television you see these wonderful hard covered books you
use for your BOS, I think all of us would like that, but if your writing isnt that
terrific, or if you need lines to write on (like me) a regular notebook will work
just fine. For that matter if you have a computer you can store everything on
disc. The choice for your BOS is totally up to you, choose what suits you best!
