The Book of Shadows can be intimidating. Unlike other magickal tools, it is very active -meaning you have to continue to create it. It isn’t a one and done project. A witch’s Book of Shadows is never complete. We continue to study and learn throughout our lives. Part of what causes some of the block, at least when it comes to beginning, is comparison. Many think their books have to be Pinterest or Instagram worthy. Or they need to look like the book from Charmed. It’s great to have a beautiful book, but what is more important is having a book that you will work in. Use a composition notebook, typing paper, looseleaf, or a pretty journal. Use whatever! It doesn’t matter. What does matter is that you are working in it.
