Magic spells are still practiced today, and have a long range of practice in our history. They have been used by men called sorcerers during the Dark Ages, because of increased superstition at that time. As we have just mentioned, though, they are still used today through many different groups and organizations.
There are various types of magic spells provided by different cultures that achieve different tasks. Some say that magic spells are separated into two different main categories, as they can be either white or black. White magic is said to be used to help a person or help the spell caster. Black magic is used to harm or cause the caster to have mind control over someone else. These two are disputed as legitimate categories by many, though, as modern magic practitioners say that magic can not be good or bad (as many theories of black and white magic claim) but can only be related to the intentions of the caster. And to add to the theory that magic is not black and white are spells like levitation, as those spells clearly are not to help or harm anyone.
With a flurry in magical programs such as Charmed, Merlin and films like Harry Potter, the world of wizardry and witchcraft is growing in popularity. But are these realms of fantasy based in any reality at all? Also, why are we so excited with them?! Perhaps it's indicating a longing for a break from our material life of science and fact through something that's different, magical, otherworldly.
There's something inbuilt in us human beings which hankers for and becomes excited by such a realm of magic and mystery. Perhaps we want the fun, the thrill, too feel the power of adjusting our worldly environment with something intangible; to cast a spell by waving our magic wand for good health and energy, for our troubles to desert us or to find loving relationships, fun and laughter.
I've seen sites catering for all sorts of needs of the magical customer, each offering their own specific variations of services such as spells of magic, black and white magic spells, free voodoo spells, free witchcraft spells, magic love spells, free love spells, free magic spells and recipes for spells and potions! And there are some pretty good potions out there, especially for homemade incense for festive celebrations like weddings or Sabbats.
To make real magic that works, you must throw yourself into the ritual of the spell with all your heart, and follow through the spell saying every word and performing every action with the full force of your belief behind it. Only then will you tap into the real magic power inside yourself, and then the spell will do its work to unleash that power and focus it towards your goals.
The last point I will mention is that you should not expect your magic to happen instantly. Be patient, be open to results happening in many ways - sometimes you will see small results for your spells, sometimes you will see big obvious changes. Real magic is slightly unpredictable as there are so many factors that affect the outcome, so stay positive, stay optimistic, stay happy and keep your eyes peeled.
