I'm new and curious.

So if you don't mind me asking. What are the components of a spell that make it work? What do you have to have?

That is a much simpler and much more complicated answer than you might believe.

All that it takes is that which is within, in the non-physical sense (I do not mean the gooey bits, that is). But one must know realistically what to expect and how to go about it. That said, there are many ways to accomplish a similar goal. Some ways involve a particular spiritual or religious belief. That is where the different paths come in.

As far as physical ingredients, they are attached to the various paths, and often used to help direct intent, to suggest correspondence with certain aspects of things such as elements and emotions, representatives of entities and power, and the direction of will.

That is, I think, about as much of a nutshell as I can put it into. The surface has not been scratched at this point, but it is visible. From this point, there is study.

It takes having the recipe (ingredients and directions) and the knowledge of how magick works (that's the biggy part). If you know the basics of how magick works, the energy it takes, the prep work, then you can make a spell work. The power is in you, not the spell. The spell is just the recipe to follow..

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

Excellent advice Lark! Those books are very good places to start indeed, also if I could direct you to one of my posts from a few months back, you may find some of the information in that post quite useful in your magical workings and ability to cast spells effectively :)
