I’m going to say that I find much value in having kept a journal of magick that I perform. The value in this or in keeping what is similarly known as a “book of shadows” is that in due time you will have your very own personal book of the evidence of your magick success if you practice regularly.
It’s encouraging to look back and see what amazing results that can be brought about through the documentation of your magick rituals. It’s also a nice way of auditing yourself to tweek your practices to perform better for you.
Much of the time I find, you do get very much what you expect to get but in many times it’s much greater, I believe this shows the spirts interventions. I’ve had results so perfect and beyond coincidence that no human hand or mind could have ever formulated the outcome.
There is also evidence available that suggests that writing down our desires alone helps in manifestation. See the YouTube video called “it works” for information concerning that.
I just thought I’d share this as it’s often advised to keep a ritual journal and the real value that comes with it. I’m sure any practicing magician with enough experience will surely be able to agree.
