Where do I start?
By:
Post # 1
Hi I'm new with magic and I really have no idea where to begin. I don't know anything about Wicca and that stuff so if anyone could help me get started that would be great. I've read the FAQ's and gone to the newbie central but I'm still pretty confused on everything. If anyone has some tips please post!

Most paths are built on some kind of meditation foundation. So, take a look at learning to meditate. There are many ways to do this, including movement meditations like yoga or tai chi. Popularly people meditate with music.

If you find you are struggling to meditate, you might benefit from learning a form of deep relaxation first. I have found that the keys to both meditation and deep relaxation are in how I breathe. Good luck! :)

The first step I was taught was to meditate and find my center. It helps not just in magic but also to help you inturn to. I also think reflection over everything you've done helps find the real you so you are happier with your self. It can help with spell work to.

I would suggest the things you do for the first couple months is mostly research. Get to know the craft(Wicca), know the Deities, know the Elements, know the Herbs, The Crystals, The paths, the spells, everything you can get your hands on.

After you have done enough studying, You should probably start by finding your Path. Theres Celtic Wiccans, Dianic Wiccans, Alexandria, Eclectic, Gardnerian, Even Christian Witches. Theres many ways to go with your paths so pick carefully.

Once you found your path, get to know its Deities, or Goddesses and Gods. There many of them and many types of them (Celtic, Norse, Egyptian, etc). Every God and Goddess help with different things, and have powers in different ways. Get to know them.

The first thing you should work on should be Meditation. You have to learn to Meditate if you want to be a Witch. Meditation is good for your body, your mind and your soul. Just take time to relax.

Spells are usually seen as the selling point of Wicca and Witchcraft. Everybody wants to cast a spell and get love, money, and luck. They want to get back at their ex, make the guy of their dreams fall in love with them, have endless money.
Truth is, It isn't that easy. Not every spell is going to go through perfectly. The Divine Power, Gods, Goddesses, And fate will decide how everything goes down.
Make sure you're casting a spell for the right reasons. Anger should never be a reason to cast a spell. Make sure you cast spells when you are in a calm state of mind.
Also, Using other people's spells are good and all. But a spell is best when its written by you. You pick out the Ingredients (Herbs, Crystals, Oils), write the words, etc. Its more powerful that way.

But most of all you should really try and learn more about yourself as well as the Craft. Make sure its the right fit for you.

I would not try to learn all the herbs that will take a very long time. There is much to learn and if you follow the link you should be just fine. I have a few links on my profile please feel free to look and see if anything is of help to you

I never learned every herb meaning. Just the ones that I see daily, like kitchen spices xD. I agree with meditation. Slowly begin to become aware of the world around you.

Hello I am new in the site as well. But from my experience in magick I would suggest you to start with the basics. The basic practises in my opinion are:

  • meditation
  • visualisation
  • days and moonphases
  • grounding
  • centering
  • energy manipulation

I hope it helped. Look those up in the forums or ask from someone to teach you

have patience and practise!

Love and Light
