Hello and welcome Mystic7...I am new also. Sorry I cannot help with your teachings. I am just starting out...I read a lot (have about 40 books just on spells, history of wiccan/pagan/christian research, crystal ball reading,scrying, etc. Those are my interest so far.
Hey Mystic, I have been studying and "practicing" magic for about a year now. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but I'm still getting the hang of things. I'm trying to get the hang of making my own spells because I feel it works a little better. I mostly like the druid way of doing things and try to pattern after them a little.
Learning the basics would be a good start. "Basics Expanded" in the forums is a good read. Get your hands on books, even free on the internet (google). Read, study, learn. And by all means, may you find what you seek. Blessings!
