It sounds as if you want to believe but are unsure. With this mindset I am afraid that your spellcasting will not be successful. I think you need to meditate on things, maybe research some more and keep an open mind, you will decide one way or another if magic is real to you.
I've practiced magic for over 12 years and when I first started I thought that magic wasn't real and that I was insane. Wasn't until around the age of 7 or 8 that I got my first wake up call when my friend and I both saw a spirit during the same time(this mean't that I wasn't hallucinating but it still wasn't enough). I have a lot more evidence, but there are still days when I wake up and I think I'm crazy or that magic isn't real or maybe I just don't believe in my power. Moral of the story is, you probably won't always 100% believe, try to find a real magic related experience and hold on to it.
It also can have something to say what you put in the 'term' magick.
If there is a thing you whant to move or happend.
And you think about it alot. Someone els might pick up that telepatick and do it.
Or one can use forms of hypnosis, or 'mind altering' where one by planting ideas subliminal in theyr mind that makes them do the thing.
What I'm geting at is. Where is the limit.
Dosent mather what you cal it. As long as it works.
i have a similar problem. cast spells that are herb based. i study and work with potions because i know the magical and medicinal elements of the ones i use so i don't have a huge question looming over me. it strange though, i question it, but when it comes down to i need to cast, my mind goes blank and i focus on that one thing. meditation will help you figure out things, but i'd look into herbalism.
