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
You need to get out of your comfort zone. I mean it's okay to look for spells that only includes a chant ( THAT IS TOO A SPELL) but you should involve yourself in rituals. Simple candle spells are also good to bring about your intent. You can use birthday candles as well if your house conditions aren't good. A simple chant spoken over a candle flame with focus could manifest your desires. You need to practice and learn the basics like Centering ,Grounding, Visualisation, Shielding, Casting a circle , Meditation etc. These are the basics of spell casting and this could help you a lot!!!
Hope this helped
To be honest, most spells where you only use your voice is for those who are actually experienced with spells and energy manipulation. Beginners usually struggle with those "simple" looking spells, and tend to be a lot better at spells that have more ingredients, etc.
But if you need help, message me. I can create a spell for you based off anything you have (some things you can use that you probably don't realize can be used in magick). Or give you some beginner tips.
But, there's many spells on this site. Just focus on your intent and your energy. :) Just keep practicing, and you'll get it.
