There’s a beauty in it and also a danger.
Despite popular movies and television shows, there is no one single book of shadows. A book of shadows, or BOS, is a Wiccan’s or Pagan’s notebook of information. It usually contains spells, rituals, correspondence charts, information about the rules of magic, invocations, myths and legends of various pantheons, etc. Sometimes information in a BOS is passed along from one Wiccan to another (and in a coven setting, there may be a coven BOS as well as individual members’ books), but you can create your own with a little bit of effort. A BOS is a very personal thing, and should contain the information you find most important.
A Basic Method
To make your Book of Shadows, begin with a blank notebook. A popular method is to use a three-ring binder so items can be added and rearranged as needed. If you use this style of BOS, you can use sheet protectors as well, which is great for preventing candle wax and other ritual drippings from getting on the pages! Whatever you select, your title page should include your name. Make it fancy or simple, depending on your preference, but remember that the BOS is a magical object and should be treated accordingly. Many witches simply write, “The Book of Shadows of [your name]” on the front page.
I decided to make a pretty version of this chant.
Alright, obviously this wont actually turn you invisible. But it will allow you to pass unnoticed. I used it many a time when I was at school to avoid teachers when I hadn’t done my homework. I’ve had it written down so long I have no idea where I got it from originally.
As you chant, visualize yourself blurring around the edges and blending in to the background where no one can see you. If it helps, close your eyes while you chant.

I went to elementary school with this girl, Heather, who had just started competitive swimming when we were in first grade. She always said she wanted to swim for the rest of her life and that she wanted to swim in the Olympics one day.
Heather swam in the 2012 Olympics in London.
Don’t you dare tell me a child’s dreams are foolish when anything is possible if you work hard enough.
This is amazing…
