But I would like to add, even if you do not have knowledge from a book, or someone more advanced, you can make it work with candles, incense, a short chant, as long as your intent is very strong. When I sat down to sort out my life by burning candles and marking items for magick, and writing it all down, the next day I got a job.
What I did was move out energy that was holding me up, and when I did that, what I needed came through.
Whitchcraft is a lot like art lessons, you can "play" around with it in a simple, non toxic way, and this teaches you more than anything else.
A lot of people will disagree with this claim, but the more you branch out, the more places you will go.
