What do you guys put in your book of shadows? I have no idea. I am trying to make mine but i don't know what i should put in it. I am using a locked diary so nobody can get it. I out the keys on a key chain and put that somewhere where I won't lose it.

it depends really. In mine I put ideas for spells, story's or even ideas for my next art piece. Then I put every new thing that I learn about Wicca or witch craft. I slso might jot down experiances or dreams/nightmers that I have had. A book of shadows shuld be about you and what you want to learn
I have 2 books... 1 is a journal where I put everything. The other is unlabeled but Book of Shadows probably fits. Every time I go back to something I wrote in my journal I put a hash mark in the column next to it. Once I get a bunch of hash marks, at least 5, I realize it's important to me and put it in my main reference book. I wouldn't call it a Book of Shadows yet because it needs to be organized, but once it's full, I can organize it and then label it.
As Wiccan and other modern forms of Witchcraft call for Spell Book such as a Book of Shadows . One thing to point out you cannot buy a already made Book of shadows. Yes there are books of people spells out there. But does not mean it is you r book of shadows. Everyone needs to make there own. Also a Book of shadows is more than just a spell book. It is your personal Journal of Notes on witchcraft, rituals, spells, poems, drawing, information on crystal, candles, Entities. All in all this is a book of your experiences as being a witch.
You can use blank paper to make it using a binder or Notebook. Buy a blank book. Or type it on the computer.
I am making my book of shadows. I am using a journal where d everything once for the nice book of shadows for show. Then I am making a neater organized one for everything else. Your tip is gonna help so much! thanks!
