Making Your Mark…

This is one of my favourite books AND my witchy bible. I don’t normally advacate writing in books. But in this case I write in this book a lot. I decided I wanted to add to the book.

So I’ll add to the entries Scott made, such as anything new I’ve found in folk lore books. I also add plants that are not there and I also add information on herbs I’ve  descovered myself through feeling their energies through touch or dowsing.

So make it your own. Add to it your own findings. Don’t be affraid to experiment by feeling plants vibration and listen to what they are telling you  and note it down!
