Hello, I'm new
By:
Post # 1
Hi everyone, I finally made an account on this site after a few weeks of looking at it. I am new to magic, though my interest started a few years ago. Currently I'm trying to learn about the basics but I've run into a few issues.
My first dilemma is trying to find websites that have legitimate information. I'm always scared to read something if the facts aren't right because later on I could get it mixed up with the truth. So if anyone has suggestions on books or websites that cover specific topics that would be greatly appreciated.
My other problem is meditating. I've been trying to meditate for a while but I cannot seem to clear my mind. When I try it seems like my thoughts get louder and louder. I spend an hour each day practicing with no luck at all. I need some tips.

If you can help me with either or both of my problems I would love you forever! Thanks!

I was raised in a wiccan household, so meditation was first thing taught. Couple things that work for me is: be in a 'happy' environment-i use a tree in my favorite park. Be well rested- being sleepy will just get you a nap. Clearing my mind usually is easy for me, pretend to be floating on water and just let the waves wash over me. Hope these ideas help.

If it's magic and spellcasting that interest you then I'd suggest the following books as a way to get started:

"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

"Real Magic" by Isaac Bonewits

"Modern Magick" by Donald Michael Kraig
