First, you need to understand the Five Elements. Spirit (Akasha), Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Figure out which element you are attracted to the most. This will be the element you should study about first. You will need to know the Energies from these elements to help you have a better spell outcome when you learn Elemental magick. To find out your element, you could match your astrological sign to whatever element it has for you. For example, I am a Taurus, which means my element is Earth, but the thing is, I feel more attracted to Air. You can also see what element you are attracted to. Find the element in which you are, learn more about it, then move on to the other elements one at a time, learn those, and then you will be able to do Elemental Magick more efficiantly.
