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!

  6. This is wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing. I'm finally at the place where I can start to put all the scattered bits of knowledge in countless notebooks into one Grimoire. Blessings to you!

    1. I generally use this specifically for protecting anything that is used for magical purposes, so tarot notes, dream journals, hedge riding notes, BoS, grimoire, etc.

    1. It really doesn't matter what order you did them in as the intention is there nonetheless. What you put in your Book of Secrets totally depends on what you want it to be for. Are you looking at recording your personal feelings, research, and spells all in one book, or do you want it to be more for research? My grimoire consists entirely of research on sabbats, the elements, herbs, crystals, folklore, charms, etc, but I keep a journal on all my personally performed spells and rituals, dreams, etc.

      Personally, I don't like the term baby witch, but you can refer to yourself however you want. You are a witch who happens to be new to the Craft.

    1. This is a spell that requires nothing more than you writing your intentions into your book. There are tons of other ways you can protect your book that may be more doable to you. Heck, write your own protection spell and chant it over the book with a candle lit. Draw a protection sigil on the inside cover and call it a day. Whatever works for you. There are no rules!
