You are in the right place. What kind of experience do you have with magick?

Hi! First, I just want to let you know that there is no "white" or "black" magick. All magick is the same. It's the intent, the purpose of your magick working that make it what it is.

For example, if you use a traditionally "white" magick spell for dark purposes, is it not "black" magick? Many new practicioners are confused by this one thing. It happens, it's normal. Just know that there is no real difference.

Many would think that what Wiccans (and other pagans) do is "white magick" while Voodoo and Hoodoo are "black magick." Nope, not the case. Both practices have a variety of purposes and intents.

That's why I love this forum so much (and have been here for so long). I think you can find practically all the information you need right here. In the Beginner's Forum, you'll find a lot of source material that you can put into your own BoS. =)

Good place to start is THIS post, and the Beginner's Advice forum in general. Helps you find much of the info you are looking for. Also, there's a search option on the top menu on this board.

Personally I have learned most by reading books. And many of those are mentioned in the post I linked to.

Betty,

Is there something particular that you want to use Magic for? Perhaps we should write a spell to get it?

What are you doing with Black light to relax, if you don't mind me asking?

Hello betty:) in my opinion if you really want to do some magic you should try to talk with your spiritial guide. Do you know who they are? You should meditate more and in your meditation imagine that you are talking with them. And I believe that the black light idea was came from your spiritual guide because it made you feel good and I guess you like black?Smile

Okay, firstly, improving your skills is up to you, we can help with tools for you to use, I.e. the Beginners forum, but you have to put the work in. Every person is different, what works for one may not work for another. You need to figure out what works for you, no one else can do it for you.

Secondly, we can't help you if you are not going to answer questions asked that might help us to help you better learn. Narn had posted a question for you and never got a response.

You do have to give to get, just like anything else.

and I tried something I cooked for my parents and I putted some different herbs and which I believed I did magic to them and wanted them feel better with these and I dont know if it worked but they thanked for the food they really liked it and it was a great evening we had good time but it can be coincidence..

They weren't brownies were they lol?

Here is something I believe may help you I know it helped me tremendiously in clearing up alot of confusion.

Lady of the Earth (http://ladyoftheearth.com/)

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Enter. When the next page comes up click on the "Resource Pages" link. There is a treasure trove of knowledge there on a multitude of subject. And it's in more of an article type format and easier to read at least to me. Anyway check it out.

Blessed Be!
~Kalabora

P.S. Oh and the question Absinthe is refering to is when Narn asked you about your use of the black light. I'm curios also. And what you need magick for...

What's not to believe? We've given you that nudge, that push to other parts of the forum, where you can find so much more information. What else do you require?

why do you need to believe in us? the only person you need to have faith in is you.

We all had to work hard to get to where we are today. why do you think we would tell you all that we learned just because you want it? We know nothing about you. There is no reason for us to share anything with you.

You come here and the first thing you do is demand to be taught. I find that very rude. All you need to start figuring out your path you can easily find reading through the forum.

Once you did some reading and have questions about the subjects we will be happy to help you with those.

Very well put.

Magick is about will. And having faith that you can make changes in your life. Empower yourself and refining your self and energy...let's say idk...look at it this way you are on one side of a canyon and in the distance you see what (or who) you want there. On your side you have an abundance of rope and small planks. You can't just yell across the canyon for someone to come to you. You have to get your hands dirty and start making the bridge. Putting all the individual items together to create your bridge to move across to your goal. In other words this is something that is solely your responsibility to do.

I hope that helped took me a little bit to work that all out in my head lol

Books is the best way to start, there are a dozens of "Witchcraft for Beginners" type book. Which can be bought over the internet or even from most bookshops these days, usually in the "Self Help" section ironically.

lol no it was some real food Very Happy and this website is so good thank you a lot:)
I was doing nothing:) I was trying to meditate different ways and generally people using white light for relaxation so I though I can try other colors too. I tried also blue, green and yellow. nothing happened with these colors but black light was so different..
and I need magic for self improvement I know every human has this power and I dont want to deny it I want to use myself every possible way and mostly I want to help people thats all :)

If you have just started your magick education, I personally think its too soon for you to be practicing magick on ANYONE. You don't have the experience or the knowledge to proceed at this time. Magick is a life long learning lesson. There are no Cliff Notes for magick.

Reading this, I understood it to be a gentle and subtle way of urging you to define your goals, as well as your intentions, concerning magic and its part in your life.
"This is me - this is where I am, now.
This is who I want to be, where I want to be at."
Then you can understand that magic is but a tool - a method - to help get you to there, and how to use it.

At least, that's how I'm learning to see it...I've had trouble using it, myself...but stepped back and am defining the me and the path, first, which is helping me a lot.
Hope this helps.
