Your Workbook Of Shadows Exercises

Your Workbook Of Shadows Exercises Cover
1. Obtain the largest dictionary that you can find with the intention of finding your magickal name. Close your eyes and open the book at random, then point to a random spot on the page. The word that your finger lands on will be your magickal name for the time being. If your finger lands on the definition of a word, use the word defined as your magickal name. Write the word that your finger pointed on and beside this write the definition of the word. Consider how this word relates to you and write your thoughts down below the definition. Leave room for future entries. If you can make no immediate connection between yourself and the word, leave this space blank for the time being.
2. Set aside an area to act as your altar. Decorate it with, at least, symbols of the four elements such as a candle for fire, a dish of salt for earth, a feather for air, and a dish of water for the element of water. Draw a diagram of your altar layout in your journal.
3. Write and perform your own altar blessing. Record your ritual in your journal.
