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

Lark I really love your post. Its true you start out by learning how magick works and why it works and doesn't always work. Magick such as spells or rituals work from our energy and the energy of the universe. It takes time and patience for spells to work correctly when done correctly. Mediation and grounding yourself is a great wayt to start before casting spells. Mediation helps you visualize the outcome of your spells plus helps keep you focus and calm and clear.

Everyone's views on the basics are differen't. I would suggestion reading books by scott cunningham hes a very good authur. Even know most of his books are based apon wiccan belief. But some of the are not there good for any witchcraft. Some of the basics of magick include Mediation, Grounding/Centering, Visualization, Tools, Colors, Days of the Week, Moonphases and Circle Casting. :)
