Spells from the real book of shadows

Spells from the real book of shadows cannot be purchased from the local bookstore. The book of shadows is a compilation of personal spells, chants, lists of herbs and other miscellaneous information that an individual uses for the practice of witchcraft. Originally, the book of shadows received its name when witches were persecuted for their craft. The witch used the Theban alphabet to code their writings. When the book was discovered the mystique of the coded words only added to the witches persecution. The books became known as the book of shadows.

To receive the most power from spells contained in the book of shadows the practitioner must create their own book. No standard requirement is needed, but the book of shadows should be sturdy, as it will be used frequently. Common book of shadows are compiled in ring binders with pages that may be removed or added. The cover of the book consists of trinkets or keepsakes that have special meaning to the individual. These special keepsakes give the individual a clear spiritual frequency. The real book of shadows should please the spirit of the person creating it.

Even though the book of shadows is a personal account of an individual’s practice of witchcraft there are certain spells that are common to most books. Protection spells are used daily for the practicing witch. Each witch will have her own version of a protection spell. The most common protection spells are fire, house, spells to protect objects and others. While these are common spells the practitioner will modify the spell until they find one that works for them. Protection spells have an infinite source of subject matter. Where one witch will need protection from a stalker another might only need protection from bad dreams.

The witch to focus spiritual energy uses chants from the book of shadows. These are spoken aloud and follow a certain rhythm and rhyme. The personal tastes of the practitioner will decide which chants they will use. Some like more traditional sounding chants, if the practitioner is a Wicca the law of three will be included in their book of shadows. Chants to honor the cycle of the moon, call to the spirits and invoking personal power are common chants in most book of shadows. Chanting is used to increase power of the witch’s spell.

An important addition to the book of shadows is the witch’s preference for certain herbs and oils. This list will dominate the choice of herbs used for spells recorded in their book. Common herbs listed in the book of shadows are cinnamon; bay leaf and cardamom seeds used together will give the individual self-confidence. Lavender (oil and blossoms), sage, basil, patchouli—essential oils, and olive, sunflower or almond oil when combined provide great positive energy, outpouring of love and acceptance from the giver and receiver.

The witches after experimenting with these oils and herbs will find one they prefer. One witch may not like the odor of almond oil and prefers the odor and consistency of olive oil. While one witch has a distaste for the scent of patchouli and prefers the scent of basil. The ingredients decided upon are as important as the qualities of the herbs and oils.

Spells from the real book of shadows are as individual as the witch that practices from it.

    Hi Victor

    Firstly we at Divine Answers welcome discussion at our site and we encourage healthy debate by all our spiritual companions. The best way to become a Warlock is to join forums and network with other Warlocks on the internet. Also this compendium we recommend is an excellent resource for entering the world of witchcraft.

    How do you curse someone who has wronged you(ever curse I’ve tried hasn’t worked)?

  4. Destiny on June 1st, 2009 9:53 pm

    Hi Kat,

    I personally would try and avoid curses wherever possible. In my opinion Karma is a much better force and phenomena, and also feel strongly that manifesting a positive personal mind state will enhance your happiness.

    Peace and love

    I do not believe in curses, I think you bring them on yourself by believing in them, but I do believe in-the Law of Three and I would like to learn more about that.
    I have also had a person asking me to help them with a Love spell, and I found out that a third party would be hurt in the process, so I declined to help them, because I didn’t want the bad karma coming back to me.
    I wish others understood more about Karma and how it WILL come back and bite you in the butt.

    i wanted to ask a few questions about the book of shadows…

    first of all you cant really use the book of shadows unless you have potential casting powers right?
    that question struck me when i got one of my friends to cast a curse upone me to see what would happen, that was 3 years ago nothing happened and for some odd reason he cant remember the night.
    maybe he just plain forgot it but ive been asking him that question sence the day after i got him to cast the curse.

    secondly, every time i cast a spell i can feel a strange power around my left arm, it feels like its changing, slowly but changing. what i dont understand is that my left arm has been attracted to sertain people since ive started to cast spells, when it feels attracted my adrenalin goes up and i can hear a voice in the back of my head most of the time it says ” Give me power…” and after that it repeats the same thing over and over only it begs instead of demands. ive asks all of my budys that cast and they dont know what to think of it they can here it when it starts up but others cant, others as in people who dont cast.
    its intreaging to me but i allways feel like killing somthing when that happens.
    its an intoxicating sensation.
    if you can tell me what to do or what it is ide apritiate it.
    thank you

    hey i know this will sound kind of awkward and some how wrong, but i need help so here it goes: i just wanted to ask if it is possible to b connected to the elements of nature in some form or can control any of them: water, wind, earth and fire.
    many reasons for asking this question are related to what is happening with me, so please if u can give me an answer than do, i’ll be waiting.

    sincerely john :)

    Im just starting over and im working on my yearand a day, training; there are things I feel i should know and yet it is like touching a book that keeps closing on. Im in spokane and feel a bit frustrated. Im building my first book of shadows, in this life time.
    When i decided to return to the craft it was like i was being summoned, Ive had several Spirit guides thatIve talked with but due to current health issues. It comes and it goes, Sorry if im running in circles. At a very young age i ahd dreams of prevous life time, two of which are about being a Mystcal Person who had walked among the druids of what is now France. ANd i keep seeing this Book and yet histroy tells me druids didnt keep books.
    I guess im running in cricles Ive been readying Christopher Pensczak, his books are great but not knowing how to put a book of shadows together i guess Im feeling lost.

Your thoughts are welcome ...
