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
Hi! I'm Crystalia and I'm looking for a mentor to teach me the ways of the Druid and to become deeper connected with nature in its true form, through plants, and animals. Greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
We can help you on your path, but I do not think it is a good idea to have a teacher online. You can learn, but if you want a teacher, someone with whom you can speak to personally without the need of the internet I would consider to be better.
Thank you for the advice and the book recommendations i will be looking more in to the books and hopefully they will help me out. i really do want to learn about and practice wicca its interesting. but first i need to learn the basics and need to learn about what i would be doing again thank you! :)
