Freshly starting

Post # 1
Hello, I am new here and freshly starting off on the path of magick. I fully understand the basics of magick, but I was wondering where to start off. While some might want to dabble in black magick, I would just like to look towards white magick. I was wondering if anyone knew any spells that are good for a beginner to try? Please and thank you for your help, even though I might not be receiving it yet, I just would like to say that. Thanks!

Thank you! I'll try your recommendation! But I was wondering about grounding, how does that work?

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

And the following links in this thread will also help you learn the basic skills necessary for effective spellwork.

Wait, Wait. By dark magic what do you mean? Dark is not evil, light is not good. they are just colors, shades. But you can use either in baneful spells, and in admirable spells. I use dark magic. But not in the way you think. Darkness is the source energy, I draw from it so I don't have to vampirise, nor use much of my own energy.
