Post # 1
Myst Here once again,

Did you check the moon phase? It's right for your work?
Are you confident you can succed?
Have you given enough time to the spell to really get into work?
I have to say that I'm not the expert, but this questions might help you look into what you have done if you have already read all the articles on the newby centre and tips.

Well, if you're serious about learning how to do magic and with starting from the rock-bottom then you don't start out by casting spells, you start out by learning how and why magic works.

You see, there is no such thing as an "easy" spell or a "beginner" spell. One either understands how magic works and has mastered the which case the magic will work..or you haven't done that sort of work..and no spell will work no matter how "easy" it seems.

Casting a successful spell involves much more than finding some spell on the internet or in a book, saying some words, lighting a candle, waving a wand of any of that sort of thing. In order for magic to work you need to understand how and why it works in the first place. Grounding and centering, visualization, focus and intent, energy manipulation, etc are all necessary first steps to even begin to have a chance at a spell actually working...and more importantly to prevent a spell from back-firing on you.

So, my advice for anyone who is truly serious is to start by reading a few books and practicing the exercises those books will give you. Once you have mastered the basics you won't need anyone to give you spells, you'll be able to create your own spells that will be far more effective than anything you find on the net. Here's the books I suggest:

"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman

"Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar

"The Veil's Edge" by Willow Polson

"Modern Magick" by Donald Michael Kraig

Well, yes i know the basics and how to perform candle magic and such and even though i've read Silver Ravenwolf's solitary book of witches (i think that's what it's called i can't remember off the top of my head)and some others(can't remember either)and took some of the tips from those and they still didn't work and i waited a week and a half to see if it worked or see some signs at least but nope and also i can't do candle magic as much as well as my mother doesn't like having candles in the house so does that have an impact on my other magick spells or something? also it might just be me or i'm thinking that my magick keeps back firing as if i did a spell two days later something bad would happen to me or around me so yeah i don't know to be honest. Thanks for the info anyway Lark :)

Please, not rely on the works of Silver Ravenwolf for your magical education. Her works are not a reliable source of valid information, and will not provide you with what you need.

You need to learn what magic really is.
There is a science behind it.
Most of it is channeling your energy.

For instance a big factor is visualization
That plays a big role in it.
But you might be doing it wrong, The Correct way is to use all of your senses like hear,smell,Taste,feel and see of course.

Intention is important to!

Most things in spells just represent something(Like its symbolic)
Making it easier to visualize.

Lets read a passage out of the lesser keys of Solomon
It is loftily amusing to the student of Magical literature who is not quite a fool ?
and rare is such a combination! ? to note the criticism directed by the Philistine
against the citadel of his science. Truly, since our childhood has ingrained into us not
only literal belief in the Bible, but also substantial belief in Alf Laylah wa Laylah, and
only adolescence can cure us, we are only too liable, in the rush and energy of
dawning manhood, to overturn roughly and rashly both these classics, to regard them
both on the same level, as interesting documents from the standpoint of folk-lore and
anthropology, and as nothing more.
Even when we learn that the Bible, by a profound and minute study of the text,
may be forced to yield up Qabalistic arcana of cosmic scope and importance, we are
too often slow to apply a similar restorative to the companion volume, even if we are
the luck holders of Burton?s veritable edition.
To me, then, it remains to raise the Alf Laylah wa Laylah into its proper place
once more.magical? phenomena; if
they are illusions, they are at least as real as many unquestioned facts of daily life;
and, if we follow Herbert Spencer, they are at least evidence of some cause.4
Now, this fact is our base. What is the cause of my illusion of seeing a spirit in the
triangle of Art?
Every smatterer, every expert in psychology, will answer: ?That cause lies in your
English children (pace the Education Act) are taught that the Universe lies in
infinite Space; Hindu children, in the Akasa, which is the same thing.
Those Europeans who go a little deeper learn from Fichte, that the phenomenal
Universe is the creation of the Ego; Hindus, or Europeans studying under Hindu
Gurus, are told, that by Akasa is meant the Chitakasa. The Chitakasa is situated in
the ?Third Eye,? i.e., in the brain. By assuming higher dimensions of space, we can
assimilate this fact to Realism; but we have no need to take so much trouble.
This being true for the ordinary Universe, that all sense-impressions are
dependent on changes in the brain5 we must include illusions, which are after all
sense-impressions as much as ?realities? are, in the class of ?phenomena dependent
on brain-changes.?
Magical phenomena, however, come under a special sub-class, since they are willed, and their cause is the series of ?real? phenomena, called the operations of
ceremonial Magic.
These consist of
(1) Sight.
The circle, square, triangle, vessels, lamps, robes, implements, etc.
(2) Sound.
The invocations.
(3) Smell.
The perfumes.
(4) Taste.
The Sacraments.
(5) Touch.
As under (1).
(6) Mind.
The combination of all these and reflection on their significance.
These unusual impressions (1-5) produce unusual brain-changes; hence their
summary (6) is of unusual kind. Its projection back into the apparently phenomenal
world is therefore unusual.
Herein then consists the reality of the operations and effects of ceremonial magic,6
and I conceive that the apology is ample, as far as the ?effects? refer only to those
phenomena which appear to the magician himself, the appearance of the spirit, his
conversation, possible shocks from imprudence, and so on, even to ecstasy on the one
hand, and death or madness on the other."

So that is just a little bit on magic.

Good day

I am not concerned to deny the objective reality of all ?

Good. Because she is in no way a reliable source of information.
