So what do you actually put in your grimoire now that you’ve figure out the best way to keep one for yourself?

Anything! No, really, anything you want. This book is your place to write about whatever you feel will help support you in your witchcraft. You have all the power. You have all the freedom. Between these pages, you can be your authentic self. For some witches, this is the ONLY place they feel comfortable embracing who they really are. This magical tool is yours and yours alone unless you decide to share it with others at some point.

Your grimoire is your personal book of magic. Over time, you’ll mark it up and fill with magical information that resonates with you. In these pages lies your truth.

Here’s a list of topics that you might want to include in your grimoire. (This list is by no means complete, and you definitely don’t need to include all of these ideas in your grimoire. As with most principles in witchcraft, you’ll do well let your intuition decide what goes into this book.)
