Welcome to Spells of Magick. :)
Since you are new to Magick, alot of people will tell you the same thing. "Learn the Basics", so I've gathered a few basic things you might want to look into. :)
Visualization, Meditation, Belief, Grounding, Shielding,
It is also very important to learn your Herbs, Moon Phases, Color Correspondances, Dieties (if you choose to worship any).
I know it's a lot to take in, but learning all these things will most definatly help you. Rememeber, you've got to walk before you can run. :) If you have any questions, feel free to Mail me.
