I am from Germany and my passion is the art, in any kind, shape or form; Be it music, drawing or crafting, because it's the best way to express yourself. I mainly play the guitar and piano and I love singing (not that I have a great voice or something but anyway!).
~Me and magic
The way I got involved with what is commonly called "magic(k)", "the art of the wise" or whatever name you wish to entitle it, is really complicated.. A long short story. The most important think is that I have been into 'this' since the age of 8 but keep in mind that it's not only the quantity of years you have on the topic, but also the quality of your knowledge and passion to move forward, to learn more.
~You and magic
Many people come to me asking how to do this spell, the other spell, how to accomplish this and that, without having the basic knowledge and conscious ability to do so. So, if you are one of those people, just continue reading!
Ok, enough talking, let's get to the real stuff!
The common ones
The following four of the basics are common to everyone and all paths so make sure to study those first.
My personal additions
Because of lack of time, I will add more as soon as possible so make sure to come back here soon! If you are not patient and you are eager to learn, make sure to look those topics up in the forums!
