So, I'm still pretty new to white magic and I just got a note book from a spiritual shop near my college dorm. It's on the small side, about the size of your average flash card and about 100 pages (give or take a few). As I said I live in a dorm for college therefore, I can not use anything that involves smoke or fire. I would go out side, but because I live right around the corner from Hollywood Blvd in Los Angeles the noise makes it hard for me to consentrate. Long story short, I want to be able to work on my own white magic book of shadows but being a bit limited due to the strict rules around things like fire and smoke my hands are a little bit tided (I'm also on a budget). Anyways, I asked for some tips the other day and got some really good advice. However, if anyone else has any help to spare that would be great. (P.S. I'm open to try anything that does not involve things like drugs, alchole, etc. I also live in a 1 person room and since the dorm used to be a hotel I have my own bathroom with a tub so I'm open to bath related stuff). Thank you :)
Your book of shadows is your book. You can add anything you want to it, such as the basics of grounding, centering, and visualization, a meditation practice that works best for you, information on the elements and so forth. To build your book of shadows you don't need some big ritual for it, although some people like to. Your book of shadows is yours and yours alone, so how you bond with it, and what your write in it, is completely up to you.
