Book of Shadows Blessing

The other day I posted how I protect my Book of Shadows. Today I would like to share my Book of Shadows Blessing with you. This blessing will provide magical protection, just like the Book of Shadows Botanical Protection Spell, and charge it with magical intent.

Book of Shadows Blessing

Say this blessing over your Book of Shadows. You can do this before or after the protection spell.
"In the realm of magic this book shall reside.
No one but the chosen shall see what's inside.
May I protect it, keep it from harm,
And upon it bestow power, magic, and charm.
No one without wisdom shall peer at its pages,
or the knowledge inside handed down through the ages.
This book be it mine, it harbors no fears.
The knowledge obtained through blood, sweat, and tears.
This book I bless with spiritual light,
And let only the chosen read of its rite.
For those of the Craft truly can see,
This this is my will, so mote it be."
Once said, copy this into the front page of your BOS. Either write it by hand in your best writing or type it out. I find typing and handwriting are equally magical when you actually do the work yourself. Do not COPY and paste this blessing. In order to completely infuse its power into you BOS you must write it yourself. 

Feel free to modify this blessing as you see fit. I purposely didn't use the God or Goddess because I don't believe in them, but you will probably ask for them to protect your book. For example you can change the line "This book I bless..." to say "This book may Goddess bless..." or change "May I protect it..."  to "May God protect it..."

Do you have your own BOS Blessing? Please share in the comments!


  1. I know this post is over four years old... But let the god and goddesses and spirits no, you have answered my wish. I've been looking for this for days. Mahalo

    1. I'm so glad the article helped you! Thank you for reading.

  2. I have been looking for this! Blessings✨

  3. Would it work the same if I write the blessing in the back of my book?

    1. Of course! Completely up to you how you set up your grimoire.

  4. hello so i can use the exact same wording and everything exactly but i can copy and paste directly, like i could write it exactly how it is on my bos with all the exact punctuation and word choices?
