Need a Teacher
By:
Post # 1
Hello. I'm new to this forum, and to the idea/concept of magick in general. I don't understand most of what I've read so far. For instance, what is this "Book of Shadows" that people have spoken of? And does each person have an affinity to a specific type of magick? If so, how am I able to tell what my affinity is, or if I even have one at all? And then I have questions concerning gods and goddesses, and guardian animals, and probably a few other things I'm not remembering at this moment in time.

I'm hoping to find somebody kind and patient enough to teach me these things, and help answer my questions.

Any takers?

1. A Book of Shadows is a Witch's Journal. The first page you write is 'The Book of Shadows of (Your name)' and the date you started the journal. You write about everything you experience with magick. If you had a successful spell, write it. A grimore is a Witch's Spellbook. These are the spells you create and put in here with testing.

2. Sure, you may have an affinity with a certain type of magick. You are able to tell what you have an affinity for by researching specific types of magick (like elemental magick, candle magick, etc) and seeing what you like or what connects to you. Everyone has an affinity to something, dear :)

3. If you wish to, you may work with a God or a Goddess or both in your magickal workings. You can give offerings to them or put something as tribute to them on your altar. Research various mythologies like Norse Mythology, Egyptian Mythology, or Celtic Mythologies to understand the Gods and Goddesses of them more.

4. Over time, an animal may come to you as your guardian animal. I personally believe they come to you at the right time instead of you to them. There is also your companion animal and your familiar which can be a physical animal as well.

-Regarding Your Beginning in Magick-
You must know your basics before you can spellcast. There are many posts on here about them including that of my own. Practice them everyday until you get a good understanding of them and can perform a technique that deals with one.

I hope I was able to help you.

Sure, I will help. I will not spoonfeed you though. You must research and learn the ways of magick by yourself because only then you can truly understand it.
