What is a Grimoire?

According to the dictionary, grimoire (/ɡrɪmˈwɑːr/ grim-WAHR) (also known as a "book of spells") is a textbook of magic, typically including instructions on how to create magical objects like talismans and amulets, how to perform magical spells, charms, and divination.



If you are an Earth spirited and moon guided daughter (or son!) of Gaia, then you know the importance of having a grimoire. Writing down your personal thoughts, rituals, magic, intentions, and spells are what it's all about.


HOW DO I GET STARTED?


If you are new to witchcraft, often referred to as a "baby witch," then it's really a matter of personal choice. Consider the following:


  • What speaks to you the most? Herbs, candles, crystals, alchemy, tarot, etc are all great.

  • Dive deep into your soul and discover that you are your own great Goddess.

  • Take notes of what works well for you in your Book of Shadows aka grimoire.

  • Remember: there is no wrong way to practice spirituality. Unlink organized religions that dictate what you can and can not do, spirituality is the freedom of the individual to find inner peace, strength, and wisdom.
