I would like to know how to get my familiar or how to get in touch with him, I searched here and most of the people answers were that i must meditatde, or to just wait for him to appear, there is also the options to create one (but as far as i undertood this is dark magic, so i think i will keep myself away from this i dont want to get involved with demons and devils) or ask the god/goddess i worship to give me one. But even if there were a lot of answers none of them were too accurate on how to do it most of them were spells that i bet won't work even in a million of years, so please can someone help me out or clarify the things a bit because i am very confuse.
i got my familiar like this i went to a pet shop bought a budgie named him nibbles then did a binding spell whitch didnt work correctly he now knows 200 words and he always sits on shoulder me and him are best friends hoped this helped
Just get a regular old pet. Bring in a stray, go to the shelter, pet store, etc. If there is an emotional and spiritual bond beyond that of a normal pet-owner relationship, it could be considered a familiar.

I believe you are confused about what a familiar is. From your description, you are looking for your spirit or animal guide. This is different from a familiar. Familiars are real life cats, dogs, your pet that cares for you as much as you care for them. Mine is my dog. Most have cats, but I am very allergic, though I love them dearly. I would suggest you look into the definitions of both, then decide which is what you want to know about. Then I can know what you want help with. Blessed Be...

I'm not sure where the idea that a pet is the same as a familiar came from. I guess I have to blame it on some of the crop of poorly researched books on the market these days. But the fact of the matter is that our beloved pets and a Witch's familiar are very, very different things.
A Witch's familiar is an animal spirit or a magical construct created by the Witch or the Magician as an adjunct to their magical workings, as a repository for power, and if needed as a defense against magical attack from another magic user. A Witch or a magician can draw upon the energies of the familiar when they need an extra boost of energy in a magical working. Conceivably if the spell is important enough, the Witch could completely drain the familiar of energy causing it to "die" or cease to exist. And in the case of a magical attack, the attack could be diverted to the familiar so that it would be the familiar which is destroyed rather than the magic user. None of these are things that I think any of us would want to do with our pets.
There is an excellent article on familars here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Familiar_spirit
Animals are very sensitive to the energies around them and they may be drawn to us when we are working magic because they can sense the energy. They also want to be around their people, which again will make them want to be where we are..and that may be where we are doing magic. Neither of these things makes the animal a familiar or inherently magical in and of itself.
