Ode to Beginners
Start with meditation and chakra work. Also read about and practice the other basics of magic such as grounding and centering, circle casting, the cone of power, visualization, and shielding. It is going to take time to learn and practice these aspects of the craft, several months in fact to become skilled in them like it is second nature. I suggest at least one daily meditation of about fifteen minutes long and at least one daily practice of energy work again no longer than twenty minutes at a time. Energy work consist of working with your chakras and basic energy transfer such as charging items with your own energy. If you can fit in a morning and an afternoon meditation session or even a noon as well, please feel free to do so. Meditation can also be practiced for a few minutes before you need to focus on a task such as a test, meeting, or project.
As you work on these things it would be a good idea to read and cross reference the many other aspects of the craft that are basic as well but lead to more advanced practice. Divination and the many different types that can be used, color correspondences not only for candle magic or auras but other forms of magical workings, the different tools and items that can be utilized in magic, the elements including the different sets from different cultures, how to use the vast amount of symbols and their meanings, the moon phases and how and when to utilize them, the seasons even have an effect on castings. Things like herbs, oils and stones take time to memorize so I find it best to read about the ways in general you can utilize them and research the different items and their use as things come up. Researching information before casting magic is a must, even I after all my years still research and deduct which way is best to handle the situation magically.
I think you are loosing your will power. the younger we are the more will power we have, and as we grow older we loose it little by little. I think that you must work more on your meditations and chakras
What tends to happen is that as you age, you gain more awareness of what is real and what isn't. This tends to suppress your magical potential as you assume your imagination is at work. I think that, at some level, you don't completely believe in magick. Faith is the fundamental force that drives magick, if you don't have faith in your magick, it will not work. You need to remind yourself, probably through meditation and energy exercises, that magick is real and you can use it.
I would have to agree with the last few posts. Mindset is everything. Our imaginitive processes when we are children are strong and that makes it easier for us to use magick. As we age we are caught up in the mundane of today and we forget how to use our inaginations. Thus our magick becomes weakened.
