Alright so I'm really getting fed up with all the people that just want to learn how to cast spells and only come on here asking to be taught how to cast spells. Well now I'm going to add in my say. Casting spells requires you to not have any doubt in your mind about whether the spell will work or fail. If you do doubt that it will fail guess what's not going to work.
Yeah. I know. But some people are not born knowing that and not everyone is introduced to this site at the same points in their life/journey. What i do is ket them know in a way thats nice about intent.
I agree with you EldestDragon. Some people need to learn the History and Basics of Wicca way before asking to learn how to cast spell and then they should consult with their High Priest or Priestess for a more in depth learning of how to cast properly. Best ones to ask is one in your hometown area.
It's true and yes sometimes it does get annoying. But you have to remember that everybody gets stared with asking questions. If they genuinely want to learn magic in order to cast their spell than they'll stick around and if not that's when they become fluff. The best way to deal with them is to not ignore them, but explain them the facts and if they're willing to listen and learn then great.
Most people dont have fotographic memories to the point that they can memorize entire novels of literature. And so they are going to have questions. I dont think they should be scared to ask them. If you beleive in majick then you beleive in the power of words and intent. If you are constantly looking for the negative instead of trying to foster positivity, then negative is what youll find.
This topic is irrelevant. You realize that a LOT of the magick community nowadays is just 12-15 year olds who either watched Charmed or read Twilight thinking they can just do magic like that *snap*. They come in asking questions and there is NOTHING wrong with asking questions. I still do, even our wisest ancestors ask questions because what are we taught when we are young?
"The only stupid question is one not asked."
So, while it may seem tedious to you and annoyingly repetitive, remember that we all started somewhere ;)
I agree with Sappho. I'd like to add that one should use common sense when asking questions. Go by this general rule: If it seems impossible, it usually is impossible. And be sure to read previous forum posts on the topics you have questions regarding and do some research by searching the internet before asking. There's so much information out there already.
another thing is that alot of new comers dont have covens or other practitioners in there community and are mostly learning there path by either books or online, but even that has its limits. most books that are out there dont really give in depth about a spell or ritual. they just say do this and that, they dont say what you might feel or experience most of the time when you do the spell and/or ritual, and/or even in some cases offerings as well.
one last thing the topic of this forum is misleading, you say fluff but its really about new comers and/or beginners asking questions. a fluff is not a newcomer and/or beginners, and not all newcomers and/or beginners are fluffs.
