Oh that’s a very good question, well this is my way of organizing mine :)
(in my case) what Wicca is and what it isn’t
Initiation - a year and a day od lessons, ritual and needed knowledge before the first degree- degrees
Beings and Creatures of the Spirit world
Energy- how it works, dimensions- levels-
Magical names and how to get yours
Tools-Cleaning and loading them with energy
the difference of a coevn with an solitary Wiccan
Meditation & Ritual energy
ways to meditate
step to step practice
how to ground yourself
how to create protection shields around you
how to work with the inner self and the shadow

at the end of the book, where someone will have to check for it to found it, i have added my family tree with all the witches in the family so one day my next generation can add their names hopefully, it’s a little thing but it’s important to me, if you’re a first generation witch it would be nice to have yourself at the top don’t you think? ;)
I just find my Grandma’s Herbal Grimoire ! I’m so exited about that !!!!
I did not know that my grandmother was a “traditional” witch: she was a farmer who lived in the countryside and who loved growing flowers and plants, but in these books I found many Italian spells on helping plants to grow stronger, on how to drive away the unwelcome insects or to recall the good ones, on which mushrooms use to make important natural medicines.
I’m so impressed !!
I do not think she knew what she was doing, maybe they were just traditional ways of her time that she had learned from her mother or her grandmother. She probably was not a real witch, but in practice she used spells !
My mother told me that she had rewritten those notebooks when she was younger to help my grandmother not to lose all her old pages that were yellowing and destroying. Actually, my aunt drew the many sketches that cover these pages, while the book’s image was cut out and pasted by my mother when she found the ones that appealed to my grandmother !
A splendid job of cooperation. And the best part is that none of the three were asking questions about what they were writing. Even now, they don’t believe that some of these are spells but only “ways of doing that work”.
