I had spent about a year looking for where to start. What is the basic rule of thumb to start. Every art has a start some essential building block. Now on my path of being a black magician I have come into contact with a few sources about magic (this being one of them) and have been trying to sort it from there. Apparently trying to jump in and perform magic is like trying to run a 5k marathon without first running a lap.
I had found recently that to start everyone must learn about things of Chakras and Auras. How true is this? What are some exercises I can perform to become familiar if not more in tune with these forces? I understand what Chakras are pretty well. Auras...are sort of another thing for me. Any help would be appreciated
