Before you can begin to practice the techniques it is important to prepare yourselves well, for most of the spell work is the preparation and not the ceremony itself, After all you are the central element here. The main tools are your consciousness, your will of power your body, etc. and not the wand or candles.
Some magicians will enter a circle dressed in a torn cloak and holding in their hands dirty Pentagon, but many people do ceremonies every week when they are confused, their will power is weak and bodies are not ready. You should prepare and strive as if you were preparing to the Olympic Games then you Will achieve a level of magic star.
