Hello I have a question when I was 7 I went to Mexico with my Grandma to visit my family along the way I went to visit my great aunt in catemaco and she was a witch she got paid by people to perform curses and hexes and I was the only one in my generation and my father's generation to meet her and at one point she cut a goats head off and used it to make a decagram on the ground and sat me in the center then said a chant in Spanish of some sort and to this day I don't know what it was for but as of late she's passed and she left me her grimmoire and idk if it's a good idea to go to get it or not lmk
Hi there Azazel, welcome to the site! Unfortunately the process you described isn't one that is familiar to me. And without having an idea of what traditions she practiced it would be a bit of a challenge to surmise/research. It might help if you can find out what tradition/faith your grandmother followed and let us know. It might add some context.
As far as the Grimoire itself, going to get it is neither a good, nor a bad idea. Unless your Grandmother specifically bound some sort of energy or ward to it, it is just a book. Pages with information and ideas that are entirely your choice to either follow or set aside. If the two of you were close, it might be nice to look through in her memory.
A few precautions should be all that would be needed if you do accept the book. Be aware of how it makes you feel when you are near it for the first time. Pay attention to how your body reacts. If it doesn't feel right or safe trust the instinct. Maybe bring along a thick silk bag that is of a dark color, dark purple or black would be best. And instead of touching the book with your hand, get it inside the bag and tie/ draw it tightly shut until you can learn some protective rite, cleansing process, and maybe an ancestor honoring as well.

Hi Azazel, please remember not to use text speak on this site. Spell out your words completely. It's "I don't know" not "idk". Many of our members do not have English as a primary language and text speak can confuse them.
