Hello! I've signed up on this site last week. I tried to search up info on how magic works,but the info I found on the internet wasn't really helpful. So if you guys know any info or could give me ascore,that would be great. I really want to learn magic.
There is nothing on your profile that tells us how long you have been practicing, so I am going to assume you are new.
If you tried to search information about magic and how it works, you did not try hard enough. You have the whole internet at your fingertips, and the forums on this site. This site has been around for 10 years and some very knowledgeable people have come and gone. The forums is an excellent place to start.
Also, search the forums for basics such as meditation, centering, grounding, energy manipulation and visualization. These are considered the basics of magic. You can search the forums for these topics or by using the search bar in the upper right hand corner.

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 basics...in 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
I have a huge list of really good reading on my profile. Right now im reading about Shaman Witchcraft. Even after all this reading im not comfortable that I "get it" yet. Although I have had luck with some spells. My take is that this wont happen overnight. You need to really educate yourself and then believe. I think this takes years. For people whom just want to curse an ex and no knowledge or background inthe craft; sorry, its just not going to happen.
