Your book of shadows is unique. No other book can ever be as
much of, by, and for you as your book of shadows.
Other paths have books which purport to be for similar purposes, but they are collections which were collected by someone else, and often with a "one size fits all" approach. And, most of them are available for sale at bookstores. The only challenge in obtaining one is knowing which bookstore has which books.
Your book of shadows is different. It is as personal as your toothbrush, and as private as your underwear. Nobody else has to approve what you put in there, and nobody needs to see it, either - unless it is with your permission.
You can even think of it as a living thing, because it almost is. One thing that it does do is that it grows with you. And so, make provision for that growth. Your child will not be wearing the same shoes at age 20 as he or she did at age 2, and so it is with your book of shadows, because it is that way with you.
And so, let's explore how a book of shadows comes to be, and how you can nurture its growth.
