Hey, I'm rather new here, and I was just wondering: What are some beginner spells I should try out to see if this stuff actually works? Can anyone recommend any easy low material-requirement stuff, perhaps? And I'm looking for nothing that could affect my life super adversely, just maybe like something to help me wake up in the morning or feel more energetic/driven throughout the course of the day. Y'know, easy low commitment stuff.

Well i wouldnt just start casting spells right away you need to know exactly what you are doing and what magic is and where it came from, how it works etc. It takes time to learn these things. Especially if you are serious about learning magic. There a lot of different practices that is out there. Find what interest you the most. The main you need to focus on is your basics of magic.
The basics of magic is different for everyone. But i can list you some of the basics of magic that i usually take on. They include:
Days of the Week
Energy Flow & Control ( Learn to work with your energy and other types of energies)
Herbalism (Its not required but its best to learn a little about your basics for herbalism, becaues you use it in just about anything and everything if you decide too)
Start practicing with meditaiton and relaxtion excersizes daily, mainly you could up 15 to 30 minutes of meditating but how ever long you feel you need to. Meditaion helps you focus and helps clear and calm your mind and relax your body. This is really needed especially for when castings spells and or rituals. Then would move on and learn the rest of your basics. Energy manipulation and energy works is another way to learn about spell power and will, because without our energy, spells would not work.

Spell casting is different for everyone. What some would find easy, others will find quite difficult. There is no such thing as an easy spell. The best way to try your powers is to find out where your strengths are.Find out what abilites you do have or think you have, and test them through trial and error. That is the only way you will find out, and grow. Remember this growth is learning, learning is knowledge and knowledge is the basics; I suggest starting there. I started with simple cnadle spells. This is just to light a candle, channel and direct energy to get your desire and will. But I do not consider any spell as a "beginner" spell.
The reason there are no "beginner spells" is because all spells require a certian level of knowledge as well as an understanding of how magick/energy works and of course how to work it.
Once you learn this, then spells will come easier. If you choose not to, prepare to fail. Simple as that.
Think of it this way...in kindergarten you learned the alphabet, then the sounds, combined sounds, did a little memorization and slowly through the year learned to read.
How well would you have done if someone handed you a book and said " read this, and prepare me an essay in 3 days ". At 5....you would've cried to mommy and not been able to do it.
Magick is the same way, while it may not take you years to learn to do spells, you still need to learn how to do it before jumping head first into it.
Learn your basics (sticked post in general info section). Then, many question you have had will be probably answered.
Also remember what Lucid told you above, this is the specific knowledge and experience level you have to reach before moving on to spell casting.
