Beginners Guide to Witchcraft and Magic Spells

Magick the art and science, philosophies, and state of mind. Either a lifelong passion and
pursuit, or a shortlived curiousity to most. Some question its reality or deny it altogether,
others live by it and see it everyday, some want to believe and seek answers from
books,mentors and religions who are all too happy to provide the answers to all their
questions. The true answers however lie within,and within is where to look first. All the
books, all the religious teachings and clear cut Magic Spells and rituals should only serve
as tools or someones attempt at helping to guide others to find the answers within

It seems so commonplace, someone takes an interest in Magic, Witchcraft, the Occult and
the Mystical only to end up turned off or discouraged by religions like Wicca that claim
to be the answer. And as a result many people are left unable to differentiate the practice
of Magic or Witchcraft from religious beliefs and practices, wich is totally seperate from
the practice of Magic or Witchcraft itself. Not that I have anything against someone
practicing any religion they choose, I just want to make it clear that these are two very
seperate subjects.

With all that being said, what this article does touch on is how someone interested in
studying Magic and Witchcraft's basic principles and methods should begin. Just a basic

outline of ways to find and develop your abilities. These are general methods that will work for you with time and perseverence, but as I mentioned above the real revelations will come from within yourself.

The first thing Id like to suggest, is refrain from hitting up the local bookstore just yet. At
such an early stage in the development of your Magical abilities and state of mind 90% of
the books you find will only serve to implant belief systems and thwart your personal
development. Before you start soaking in other peoples takes on Magic and Witchcraft
you need to develop your own foundation and feel for how you tune in to Magic energies.

You should take a moment to sit back and think to yourself, do you really believe in
Magic? Having made it this far, Im willing to bet the answer is yes to some extent. Take
the time to reflect on what Magic means to you, how do you define it to yourself? It
really is such a broad term. In a sense Magic is everywhere, the fact we exist is magic.
The way things sometimes seem to fall into place perfectly at just the right moment. The
Magic connection every living and non living thing shares to eachother and the universe
as a whole. Everything uses Magic to some degree wether or not it realizes it. The
difference between the Magician and the mundane is the mundane uses magic
subconciously involuntarily and never realizes it, the Magician realizes it and has focused
the ability to the point he can call on Magic voluntarily and in much more profound

Start training yourself to look for synchronicities and abandon the notion of coincidence.
Pay attention to the smallest details. Train your mind not to block out the small noises it

processes as just background static. Pay attention to the things in the corner of your eye
you may usually dismiss, learn to see the peripheral. Listen for thoughts of your own
mind and those that are not. These things alone will go far in developing your magic
abilities, but no reason to stop there.

Once you have trained yourself to do this to some extent, and you will know when you
have. Remember the Magic state of mind you put yourself in, it shouldnt be hard as its
much like riding a bicycle. Practice going into this state of mind at will, on a moments
notice. It should be much like shifting the gears of a car. In this mental state, you are still
aware but less anchored to the physical plane. You are seeing the things around you with
different eyes. This will be the state of mind you enter when you are ready to exercise
your Magic abilities and later casting your own Magic Spells.

Now enter your Magic state of mind and close your eyes, begin visualizing your
surroundings. See yourself sitting in the room or area you are in, visualize it as vividly as
you can. Now you are going to create a Magic barrier or shell around yourself to protect
yourself. Not only from harm in general, but from spirits, sentient energies, and other
scavengers of sorts that may be attracted by the energies your bulding up. This barrier
will also serve as a shield against Magic and psychic attacks by other people, and give
you a bit of privacy. You may charge this Magic barrier to protect you against anything
you specify as well. To begin building the Magic barrier around yourself after having
already visualized yourself in the room. Begin visualizing a small Magic sphere in the
center of your chest, visualize it as it pleases you. Any color,texture or even shape that
you feel suits you best. Inhale deeply and visualize the energy charging the small Magic
sphere, and exhale and visualize it growing a bit larger. Repeat this inflating of the sphere
until it totally surrounds you. When you are done hold your arms out or make a gesture
that suits yourst yle and release the spheres energy back into the air where u drew it from.
When preforming spells you should create this Magic barrier around yourself if you have
the time. It really shouldnt be of concern until you begin more complex spells and rituals.

By now you should be able to enter your Magical state of mind and have the art of
visualization down to a simple thing for you to do. So these next few little excersises
should be no problem. The next time your around someone, try to get a feel for their
energy in general. Do they seem tense? energetic? happy? Once you think you have tuned
into it, enter your Magical state of mind for a moment and sing a catchy tune mentally
and direct it toward them. See if you dont catch them humming it or whistling it later. If
they are talking to you or trying to explain something in detail, try inserting random
words or numbers in their mind to see if you can make them stutter or lose their train of
thought. In a large crowd try focusing in on one person far from you that has their back
turned and whisper in your mind to them "hey!" and see how they turn around and stare
dead at you. If you find yourself sitting outside with a friend on a calm and hot summer
day. turn to them and ask "wouldnt a cool breeze be nice right about now?" when they
agree sit back as a cool breeze blows over you both.

Some of the above has probably made you more confident in your abilities, this

confidence adds much to your potential. Remember the barrier? That was just one way
you can draw on the energies around you and manipulate it to any form or purpose you
choose. Hold your hands in front of you cupped together and visualize a tiny sphere of
energy,feel its warmth. Think of a friend or family member who hasnt contacted you in
some time. Breathe in deeply and focus on them calling you, and exhale as you focus the
thought into the ball of energy between your hands. Continue this, inflating the sphere
between your hands moving them further and further apart as it grows larger and larger as
you charge it with your intent. Once it is the size of a basketball or so, take the time to
move your hands across its surface. Feel it with your sense of touch,get a sense of what
such dense Magic energy feels like. Once your done simply spread your arms out as if to
toss it into the air and mentally tell it to go to the person it was meant for. You have just
manifested a thoughtform and send it to someone else, if you charged it well you will
probably be hearing from them soon. Thoughtforms carry out their intentions once
seperated from you, they are programmable extensions of yourself yet seperate entities in
their own right created from your life force. With enough Magic energy and intent you
can create your own spiritual servitors in much the same manner, but attempting it is not
recommended until you are sure of what you are doing. Magic Energy can be
manipulated in almost any way you could imagine, in form and intent. I will leave the
rest to yourst yl e and creativity in the practice of Magic.

Meditation is something that you should definately not neglect. Taking time to immerse yourself in your own thoughts and communicate with your own mind will serve to help you progress in all matters including the ones concerining Magic. In silence such as this you are also open to communication with entities that may have something to say to you. If you ever find yourself at a brick wall,med ita tion is where to turn.

So far, what Ive been describing are just the basics. And really one of many ways
intentional or accidental one might start their path in the pursuit of Arcane knowledge
concerning Magic and Witchcraft. The greatest results one could attain from the practice
of Magic and Witchcraft is through the structuring of very specific intentions with more
complex Magic spells and rituals. Magic Spells and Rituals are just another method of
doing the same sort of things as I described above. The difference is that sometimes you
may want to produce a result that is very specific and of greater impact than the simple
methods of Magic above would yield. For example lets say you want some specific
project you are working on to be very successful. Such a specific intention seeking such a
large result would most likely call for a Magic Spell or Ritual. You can find pre-written
Magic Spells and Rituals easily. But Magic Spells you write yourself will always prove to
be the most effective Magic Spells. If you plan on writing your own Magic Spells, get
yourself a notebook or journal and let me give you some advice on the basics of writing
your own Magic Spells.

By now it would be safe to say youve probably established enough of your own
perception on the subject to start reading books, picking through the worthless and
considering the views of others as well as finding a few Magic Spells that seem
