  1. While it is great to have access to a coven, it is not always possible.

    So, I’d recommend treating your books like study materials. take notes, use post its to mark important pages. If you don’t have access to a coven, go and grab one of those “year and a day” books. They can be a little silly BUT they’re still great for self exploration and helping you absorb info IMO.

    Also,
    I use self hypnosis for meditation. I’m not good at it yet, and I’m still trying to find good resources, but its better for me than any other method I’ve tried.

  2. Grounding: To ground myself I generally sit in a comfortable position and think of vines of energy coming up from the ground and wrapping around my legs slowly, while taking my energy and pushing it to the base of my back and to my feet, connecting the vines with my energy. I find it a very good way of mixing visualisation and meditation together. It is something very simple and helps me get into the head space of doing magick.

  3. Meditate: Lie on the ground in front of your altar. Get comfortable – very comfortable. Close your eyes. Feel your breathing slowing down to a resting rate. Relax every part of your body, if necessary by thinking about each part in turn and consciously relaxing it (as in “I relax my left foot. I relax my left ankle.” etc. etc.). Then listen for the background noises wherever you are which we don’t normally hear. I listen for birdsong, but obviously that is location-dependent. Once you are aware of all the quiet sounds around you, then defocus your attention and passively accept whatever comes to you. The aim is not to think about anything that happens, but to remain ‘in the now’. It is while I am in this state that I get messages from Deity.
    My position on casting circles and grounding is embedded in local details of my practices and as such would probably not be of much use to you.

  5. Go as slow as you like. Do you have a local supplies store? They’re great for putting you in touch with other people and workshops 🙂

  6. It is always better to hear from others as you say. Instead of flailing around by yourself I generally recommend finding a local group where you have elder guides and teachers. A big part of the work of virtually every coven is teaching beginners so they expect to have new people asking for teaching. Be polite but be persistent in your request. Persistence demonstrates sincerity. Look for listings on witchvox.com, google (wicca, mytown), or even Craig’s List.

    May the Lord and Lady guide your path

  7. That really depends completely on you! In Wicca, it’s what you feel is right for you, not what’s right for someone else. So as you read your books, think about what you are reading and how it feels to you. Take what you can use and discard the rest.

    I’m a very visual person so for me, I rarely physically cast a circle. I visualize casting the entire thing though like calling quarters and such. I don’t necessarily do that much every time I do magick though.

    For grounding, I again use visualization. I visualize a cord of light going down my spine, through my chakras, through the floor (if I’m inside), all the way to the Earth’s core and then wrap it around the core a few times. This also allows me to pull from the energy there rather than always using my own.
    For meditation, I have to use guided meditations. I can’t keep my mind clear long enough and if I’m gentling bringing my mind back to my breath every minute or so because it wandered, I don’t feel like I’m being productive. I prefer listening to a guided meditation that gives me something to listen to and visualize while meditating.

    (Edited to put in line breaks. Still new to Reddit. lol)

  8. Me personally my circle casting calling the quarters and basically conducting myself is much like if not exactly how you find it in the witches bible by Janet and Stewart Farrar. I use this outer court information, and may some other eclectic Wiccan practices like Scott Cunningham’s . Wicca is about what you do and that basic foundation is very important in order to be wiccan. You have to cast a circle and call the quarters and invite in the God and Goddess of Wicca or it’s just not Wicca anymore.

  9. Have you read Wicca: a guide for the solitary practitioner by Scott Cunningham? He covers all of this and I personally found it extremely helpful starting out, especially if you like me have no access to or interest on joining a coven.
