Now we're going to get into types of magic. There is a third camp, which is the more neutral camp. These are people who use chaos magic. They don't really care how it works in most cases, they just believe it does and questioning the 'how' is irrelevant. I personally believe this camp gets it right, but I am biased.
Something to remember is that the occult is the exact opposite of science. Take a look at the scientific method.
Make an Observation. Scientists are naturally curious about the world. ...
Form a Question. After making an interesting observation, a scientific mind itches to find out more about it. ...
Form a Hypothesis. ...
Conduct an Experiment. ...
Analyse the Data and Draw a Conclusion.
From my perspective, the magical method would be the opposite of this.
Consider what kind of working you'd like to do, and why.
Design your spell, and consider what results you'd like from it.
Do your working with the previous considerations.
Give it some time to play out (usually as a coincidence)
Did it work? Did you get what you wanted out of the working? If so, good job. If not, go back to the previous steps and try again. It's possible you asked for the impossible, like winning the lottery. Magic has to be designed with a path of manifestation, otherwise it will not work. For example, you're not going to win a million dollars; it's more likely that someone in your family will die and give you money as an inheritance.
