This is a picture of my personal Grimoire.
It is very important and special to me although I have only been writing in it for one complete moon cycle.
I can't wait to fill this one and hopefully so many more beautiful books with the stories and experiences working and creating my craft.
The most special part to me is that one day when I'm gone my kids, or my kids kids will find it and read it. How special that could be to them one day.
Till then everything I put in here is just for me.
To grow, to learn, to brainstorm, to record my feelings, dreams, and emotions.
When you write something down, you make it more real.
I was nervous about writing because I've never been a very good writer. My thoughts always read so scatter-brained and I definitely tend to ramble, but you've got to start somewhere.
Since starting I have had amazing and out of the ordinary creative urges. Like taking Polaroids of my altar for a specific moon and taping it into the pages, Or painting this tarot card, then adding it to my book. Even taking the photo to capture the moment and then deciding to post it and share it with you all.
Making it pretty was important to me because it makes me want to open it more, write more often, re-read my entries, and make new connections. And now my writing only gets better every time I grab this book out.
I would love to see other Journals, Book of Shadows, or Grimoires.
