I previously posted this in the Welcome forum by mistake... I'm now posting it here and hoping the other one gets deleted haha.
Hello everyone! Pleased to meet you. I'm Curious.
I've always been intrigued by spiritual practices and I am curious to experience connecting with the energies around me in what is called magick. I apologize for any rashness or obvious mistakes I might make. I'm very curious to learn but I'm know I'm going to goof up eventually! Can anyone give me a good place to start? I've already been practicing mediation and I love the sense of peace and awareness it brings, but I am curious where I should go from there :D
You should be able to delete it yourself, just as a heads up. Go to the post you made, and there should be a delete button in the upper right hand of the post.
My suggestion is that you do a lot of reading, researching, and asking. Start off with things that you know some about (like meditation) and let the research spread from there. Also, I would suggest studing different cultures and practices that you are interested in.
As always, make sure to take everything you read and hear with a grain of salt. Don't trust everyone, even the most seemingly "knowledgeable" and use common sense.
In the General Info section of forums, there are two I recommend. All of the info may not apply, but it will give you beginners' info. Basics Expanded and Starting Out are the titles. Good luck, and good reading!
RhiSabelle: Thank you, I didn't even think to check if I could delete it as a user. Definitely going to check out a lot more on mediation as it seems to be a very powerful tool. I'm not familiar with many of the cultures of practitioners as I am brand new when it comes to magick, but I'm sure I'll pick up a few interests from spending enough time here ;)
Star.Child: Thank you for giving me a first direction! This is all fascinating and overwhelming at the same time. All sorts of interests tugging me in different directions at the same time made it a slight struggle figuring out where I should start first. Thank you for the guidance.
Hi... I don't know where to continue... I have spent a lot of time studying herbs and healing methods (as well as poisons).. But I would like to go further into the spiritual methods... What would be the best way for me to start?
