I have asked many people about black magic or dark magic,and the only answears i get is that black magic is all about Intend,Focuse,and Will.
But i dont quite understand this is that why isnt there any rituals or spells that are associated to black magic,like for example Circle casting only darker,or a simmilar ritual like the LBRP ritual,but only darker.
The only spells and rituals i find about black magic is related to satanism,why is that?

The 'black magic' you speak about is what people think is anything that is bad or wrong. The black and white magic thy you have heard and learned is not really blak or white. Magic has no color. You heard right, it is about the intent of the spell. For instance if you wished to help someone, let's say, find a job, that could be considered what some think is 'white' magic. It is you wishing and willing to want that person to do well in life. And it is the complete opposite for 'black.'

Black magic is magic that is considered dark, evil, unfriendly, the opposite of white magic, etc. Many lump curses and other magical casting that are harmful under the heading of black magic. There are many who will say that magic has no color and that it is the intent of the caster that makes it good or bad, black or white and there is some truth to this.
Circle casting is a protective aspect of magic and can be seen as black or white depending on the way in which it is used. Most would say casting a circle around yourself for protection is a good thing. Using a cast circle around another creature to keep it locked in a specific area can be seen as black or white depending on the details of the situation. It really depends on your perspective of the creature and the reasons for the trapping.
If you are looking for regular aspects of magic that are "darker" make your own using items that you consider dark. Perhaps instead of casting a circle with white salt use black salt instead.

Indeed your perception is a big part of it. What might seem evil to you could be a blessing for someone else. The intent and will domineer all aspects of magic. Spells and casting is done with your energy focus will and intent.
I agree that there are a lot of misconceptions because of modern day entertainment, religion also has a hand to play in "black magic"
Indeed Katie is right. I have heard many practitioners use black salt instead, or cast it counter clock wise (which I dont quite entirely understand why)

There is on black or white magic, just poeple whith diffrent intentions on how to use magic. Like energy there is no black or white energy, the only outcome you get with energy is what you intend to do with it.

Okay, like people say, it is not the magic itself that has color, but the intent. Satanism is related to "black magic" in books and by some small minded people, because they view it as bad. In my opinion, the things people call "black magic" are things like curses, hexes or any other way of harming someone or something. Doing something to help someone when they do not want it could be considered a dark intent. Anything that would try to force someone to do something not of their nature, or against there will. Making someone sick. It is basically when you have a negative or undesirable intent in your working, or when a good intent has negative results ;)
