My feeling is that "magic spells" as you call them are not nearly as important as spiritual progress. I would forget about it and concentrate on why you want that power in the first place.

Unfortunately. That would be really cool.

True magic is a combination of the mind and the forces of nature and spirit around you. If you really want to learn to cast spells, most people here have posted great information on who to look up, but I would also suggest researching ESP and trying that out as well on the side, you might get better results if you do. I used to practice magic when I was a teenager, and was very good at it, but then I had an experience with it that shook me to the core and I quit spell casting, later on in life I began to realize that it was my mindset at the time that caused the magic to work. You have to be mentally open to the forces around you on a psychic level. Do some ESP research, look into the different forms of esp that are out there, you might find that they almost always do the same thing as magic spells, just different words are used. There is a fine line between psychic and mystic. Both have the same end results, but use caution, realize that the things you are trying to do are not always good for you. NEVER inflict your will on another for pain or power, these things will backfire on you and cause you 3x more trouble than you sent out, and always try to do it for good reasons, magic isnt a toy, and real magic is almost always spirit assisted. That means there are forces helping that you cannot see, but are there, and you dont know quite what they are until you get older and more experienced, and by then, if you hooked up with the wrong forces, you tend to become very ill. Just my 2 cents:
