The Book of Shadows
Book of Shadows-
(BOS) is used to store information you’ll need in your magical tradition, whatever it may be. Many Pagans feel a BOS should be hand-written, but some use a computer to store information as well. I, myself, have written all of mine out. I actually have two or three different BOS types with a mixture of things written inside. Bear in mind that a Book Of Shadows is considered a sacred tool, which means it is an item of power that should be consecrated with all of your other magical tools. In many traditions, it is believed you should copy spells and rituals into your BOS by hand – this will not only transfer energy to the writer, but it also helps you to memorize the contents. Make sure you write legibly enough that you’ll be able to read your notes during a ritual!
