Hello there, I've been reading an studying up on this stuff for about 6 months now. To be honest I find it difficult to learn and practice on my own. Even from reading the books I've read I just have a feeling I'm doing something wrong. I'll bet that someone is gonna recommend joining an online coven, well that would be one help but it seems as though a lot of coven members barely respond to your questions or are even online. So I thought maybe I'll try finding a real life teacher. That itself has turned into a challenge being that I'm from the south south United States, so my question is this, where do I go or who do I look at at this point?
Work on this simple thing drawing up energy and grounding. One of the moderators posted a very good topic on it. Just type centering and grounding into the forum search bar. Magic is using the energy in all things mixed with the spirit to focus that energy for a desired result. Drawing up energy from Blessed Mother Earth and using it is Magic. Of course there is different beliefs and practices but the energy flow to me is the most important part of magic. Feel free to inbox me with questions. I am not overly knowledgeable or super smart but I may be able to answer questions or point you in the right direction. :-) Blessings, David
Depends on what you want to learn. Most of this site is taken up by the many factions of Wicca. Some wish to know magic, without a change of religion. Some want to learn witchcraft (very few of those!).
