Nothing on your profile, so we don't know anything about you.But let's see if we can help you. Many on this site will tell you that a spell is magic. It isn't! Others will tell you that a spell is "energy". It isn't! A spell is a ritual wish; a "request" for magic to happen. Very much like a prayer. The difference being that a prayer is asking for help from a higher authority,or Deity. A spell is a do-it-yourself operation. Just like prayers are sometimes "answered", so spells sometimes work. A lot depends on how much you "believe" that the prayer will be answered,or that the spell will work. Prayers and spells are beliefs! Magic, is real!
Many witches never cast spells. Many Wiccans do not cast spells.
It all boils down to what you believe.
If you are looking to cast spells you should go over to the General Information section in the forums and begin learning what is known generally as the basics. You should also use common sense, intelligence, and maturity when either creating a spell or using another which was made by someone else.
Magic is real, but a lot of the spells on this site probably aren't going to work. It would be best to learn a bit more about magic and spells before you dive into casting them.
That being said, Brysin, the idea that spells are not magic is a belief, not a fact! Magic is indead changing one thing into another, and you have pointed that out many times, and that is a fact. Spells, to some, are simply a "ritual wish," or prayer but to others they aren't. To some others, they are changing to energy around them to influence the outcome of some certain thing, therefore, changing one thing into another. But since neither belief can be proven as fact, they will remain as that, a belief.

There are many reasons why a spell on this site might not work.
First of all it might be something which magic cannot do. Magic does have its limits. Spells will not let you shape-shift, turn into a mythical creature such as a vampire or werewolf, change your physical shape or the color of your eyes, fly, practice any form of kinesis, etc. None of the spells in the Fantasy section here, for example, will really work.
Secondly, the spell might not work because you have not studied the mechanics of magical workings nor mastered the necessary skills to make a spell work. It takes more than simply finding a spell on a website, buring a few candles and chanting some words. If you don't first understand how and why magic works then spells aren't going to work for you, at least not consistently.
And thirdly, no spell works 100% of the time. If you're tired, sick, angry, or simply not in the proper frame of mind it is unlikely that a spell will work. If you aren't properly focused, have not visualized the outcome of the spell adequately a spell will probably fail. And sometimes the Universe just says no, and a spell won't work.
Yes, there are a number of spells on here that are fake. But there are many spells on here that are real and that can work if you know what you are doing.
