Yes there are spells here on the site that do work. But there also some spells that are fake. So becareful on what you look through. Now as for doing spells you need to know the basics of magick first. You need to know how magick works and where it comes from. Knowing the histroy of Wicca or witchcraft in general is a good idea also. You shouln't do spells the first time, until you know what you are doing.

Many of the spells on this site will work if you understand the basics of magic and how and why magic functions. Of course there are also a number of spells on here that will never work including any of the spells in the Fantasy or Trick sections.
As I already told you in response to your previous post about casting spells, you need to start at the rock-bottom and start studying before you go randomly casting spells. As I said there:
Well, 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
Continuing to post over and over that you don't know how to make spells work could be viewed as spamming which is against the site rules.
thanks for the advice i now know a little bit on magic by reading the newbie page and about black magic and also white magic i am slowly beginning to understand how magic works so thank you for helping me. i appreciate it a lot.
