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

"The Veil's Edge" by Willow Polson

"Modern Magick" by Donald Michael Kraig

Whether you begin with meditation, or follow a system which dives into rituals (such as Modern Magick), regular practice is very important. Doing something once per week, maybe once or twice a month, will not do much good.

Part of beginning with a magic practice is learning to get unto the right mindset for the work you wish to accomplish. Becoming single-minded during your work is vital.

Lark's suggested books are all excellent choices. I also recommend that, while you are starting out, to research at least basic concpets of many magical traditions and mystic beliefs, if for no ither reason than understanding there are valid practices besides the one you decide to follow (or adapt, or create as the case may eventually be). It will also add to your knowledge in general, and may help you decide which direction you want to take.
