Hello. So before anything else I would like to apologize my writting mistakes, I'm not a natural speaker.
Well, I've always been ver sceptcial ragarding religion, magic and pretty much anything supernatural. Thus, you might find it odd to a person like me to be on a forum like this. It happens that I've always been curious about this things even though never believed, therefore I would like to know if anyone could sugest a spell, that would change my mind regarding magic, and by that I mean a not so hard spell, that would convince me that I'm not wasting my time. This might sond a bit rude, but I really want to learn more and I'm serious about getting into magic, so if you could help I would apreciate. Once more, I'm sorry about any mistakes I might have wrotte.

Belief is the main component of making a spell happen, or any form of magickal practice.
Therefore no spell will convince you, because you need to be convinced for it to work in the first place.
I would recommend starting from the bottom up, learning the basics, reality, basic practices. The more you fill your life with magickal knowledge and bits and pieces the more engrosed you will become with magick and so the more likely you will be able to cast spells when you have learnt enough.
Just well i forgot to say. Some didnt need to use it. Or just cant and didnt want to put the time in it. But this is only what i know and have seem. First hand has to why. Their are other things has to why to i think
I couldn't agree more with what H2OfanRikki said. No spell will work without your belief in it. I myself struggled with skepticism for the longest time; always the rational thinker who ended up thinking myself into a box. Mindset is key. That ties into your second question of "if magick is real, why doesn't everyone use it?" Simple answer is they do.
Prayer, positive affirmation, wishing, etc. Are all technically magick without the glam of the "art" of it. Thing is, they have faith or belief in their "prayer" or whatever and it happens. Sadly, when you add the word "magick" to the mix, you get the negative Hollywood cannotation and it generates doubt in a lot of people.
It's an uphill battle to peel away the layers of skepticism, but there's things you can do to help you along your way. Try meditation first. A simple meditation could be something to the degree of four breaths in, eight breaths out, repeat. It'll help relax you. From there, move on to visualization once you're comfortable. When your meditating, visualize you're breathing in vibrantly colored energy from the earth/air/whatever natural near you. See the color(s) enter your body and allow yourself to feel it, whether it's energizing or what.

Caeser, don't think of magic as "religion". A religion is a belief; magic is real! The reason most people do not seem to use magic is because they don't recognize it! But they use it! It is all around you; every day!
Magic is "changing one or more things into something totally different". If you boil an egg, it remains an egg; so is not magic. But if you bake a loaf of bread, you have changed a lot of ingredients into something else. That's magic!
A spell is not magic. A spell is a ritual attempt to obtain a magical result.
Thank you very much for all the answers! As you might imagine, at the moment I have many question, such as does magic allows me to fly, to teleport, to read minds, well all those stuff, but I gotta say Siriso, you almost got me convinced.. Anyways I will do my best and try to learn all I can about magic, as for the skeptcism, I will try really hard to believe, and I sure that with enought work I'll be able to make a spell. Thank you everybody!
