I'm new to this site and to this whole thing.I really wanna know learn about this stuff.I dont have the supplies to do any spells so Ive just done simple one with just need of a few things like a candle.I was just wondering what I need to know before I can start doing spells seriously.I don't want to do this wrong.I do need to trust myslef more.I just feel like no matter how much I learn and grow in this area I will never been taken serious and will always been seen as a fake.I wanna do this right and respectful of those that came before me.
Greetings also, James!
Never be ashamed to ask questions! It is a great way to learn different perspectives and techniques. Here on SoM, you will find you are judged by your abilities and depth of knowledge and wisdom, not as a person. It's not a bad thing like it sounds! Your eagerness to learn as much as possible is the best starting point. If you read an article or post that catches your interest, research it for yourself. You will find that you will grow knowledgeable rather quickly.
Welcome James! I would suggest looking into the works of Scott Cunningham. Learn about "The Basics" which can be found in the forums and articles, as well as elsewhere online. Meditation, visualization, energy sensing and directing, centering and grounding your energy etc. I feel these are vital to know as they help you to understand what you are doing, as well as grant you better focus. Some listed spells require tools but when you get the hang of things you will see they are not always necessary.
