Study, use common sense, listen to the elders, ignore the fluff and you should do just fine while traveling down the path.

Many spells are real and could work. But, you need an exercise. Try read good older books about. There are mostly freely on net.
For beginners is the best by my opinion

You might start by stop writing the word magic with a K! The word is magic, not magick! Mail me, and I will explain further. I cannot exactly teach you magic, that is well nigh impossible on-line. But I can point you in the right direction.

First of all, please don't feel embarrassed to be a beginner. We all started out somewhere and we've all been there so we understand how you're feeling.

I also agree with Brysing about the spelling magick. Pagans, witches, and Wiccans spell magic with a K to separate its meaning from the magic used in magic shows and on TV. Aleister Crowley was the one to invent the witchcraft spelling of magick, I believe. :) Welcome!

Yes, it was one of Crowley's many pretensions. Such as his deliberate misspelling of the name Alistair. And the stage "magician" knows full well that when he uses the word "magic", he really means "illusion".

Make your own spells. The best spells are the one's you made. If you are looking at the fantasy and trick sections, they don't work.

I just learned something new, thanks Bryson.

Anyways, Don't be embarrassed that your new. Everyone had to start somewhere, first i honestly suggest a year and a day study. It teaches you the branches in wicca, the history, the gods, the elements, rituals, energies, rocks, herbs. If you want you can mail me.

Also remember magic takes the form of your mind. If you do hate, or icky spells, you send that out. Always be aware of your intent, magic does not ever work the way you want to. Ask elders, or the mods. I suggest Bryson, and for wicca: Lark.

Don't get discouraged easily, take your time and try. Luck!

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
