As a beginner, where is the best place to start. I've been away for a long time and I'm wiser now. I started off with ancient arts that were too advanced and I almost hurt someone I love so I need some pointers on where is the best place to begin. I like dark arts but anything will do.

You are in the right place. This website is full of all kinds of information regarding spells and preparing for them and so on.

You need to learn the "basics" first. If you look, youll find lots of faqs and posts about this.

Once youve spent time learning the basics you can begin to figure out what your path might be.

Good luck! and dont forget the forums have a really useful "search" function.

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
