Fun read on a journaling practice for spiritual development.

A Book of Mirrors is another word for a Witch’s personal journal, with entries that document their spiritual awakening. It is highly recommended that you maintain a regular practice of writing down your thoughts and experiences as they happen. You’ll find this practice to be invaluable as you look back on your progress, and begin to see patterns and themes emerging. But most importantly, regular written reflections within a witching framework can teach critical thinking.

These entries are a ‘reflection’ of where you are along the way–a snapshot in time–but they become the mirror in which we can see ourselves more clearly. Like the moon reflecting the sun, this process helps bounce our conscious thoughts off of our subconscious depths, illuminating our path more clearly. In this article, I will provide the framework I created for myself and my students.

Very cool!

I’d have a rough time with the writing part, Due to arthritis in my hands. But I’d debate that in my case, typing is an adaptation worth making, not a shortcut to be dispensed with in favor of old-school longhand recording methods.

I keep a grimoire and a Book of mirrors. I have found that I am able to reflect more and grow when I connect the timeline of both...spell castings and entries in BOM. It has been an amazing tool on my journey. I think it's great you shared this!
