Book of Shadows


Book of shadows - grimoireA book of shadows (also called a grimoire) is a witch’s spell-book. This is where witches record the spells, charms and incantations they use.  The phrase “book of shadows” is derived from the time when witches needed to keep their craft hidden in order to avoid persecution.  Luckily, we modern witches are free to practice witchcraft without fear, and so we present to you this online book of shadows, filled with free Wiccan magick spells.

Successfully performing a spell is an art that comes about with practice. Keeping your energy and intent aligned with your desired results is the most important thing; without this skill, even the most powerful and elaborate spell from this book of shadows will have little effect – but with it, the most basic spell can have extraordinary results.

If you would like to know how to improve your magickal skills, The Essence of Magick is a guide which explains the workings behind magick.  It contains exercises which will teach you how to work with energy and improve your spellcasting skills.  Click here to read more.

If you would like to learn how to create your own grimoire, see this guide on how to create a book of shadows.  Feel free to add any of the spells from this website to your own personal grimoire!
