Hey, im pretty new to spellcasting, and i want to practice the most basic spells to strengthen my energies before i try anything advanced, can someone post the links to the more basic spells? Or tell me which ones are the most basic?
I suggested this exercise to someone earlier. It isn't a spell so much as a visualization but it helps to build up experience.
Stand or lie still. Visualize a silver light all around you. Allow the light to cover your entire body. See and feel it surround you, it is cool and sometimes there is a humming sound with it. Once you can feel and see it. Get up and continue with your day, from time to time try to see it through out the day.
thanks, i tried that but with limited success. I attempted to channel my energy into a ball between my hands as well while concentrating on nothing else, i felt my energy moving in my body, felt it gather between my hands to some degree, but for the most part it just presses against the skin of my palms. No matter how hard i try, i cannot interact with objects either, any suggestions?
Some suggest that when just starting to practice magick, one does not attempt to cast a spell until a year of practicing basic forms of magic, and components of a spell. Whether or not you want to do this is obviously your decision. The mechanics of a spell could be the tools used, being able to concentrate, meditate, focus intent, etc. I think this method teaches patience and gives you time to learn instead of mindlessly taking action.
I do not practice spellcasting heavily, I study many forms of magic on a daily basis, sometimes applying the knowledge, sometimes simply memorizing it for later use. It is good to teach yourself patience and discipline. I suggest studying a bit more on topics you are interested in pertaining to spellcasting, and practicing some of the components involved in the average ritual/spell first.
As another commenter has said visualization is good. I would recommend practicing that as well at this time.
