Elemental magic is easy and no more dangerous than everyday living ... in fact i consider that we all practice simple magic everyday without realizing it ... it's really all to do with consciously using our mind power that most of us use unconsciously. For example, when we think of someone in a good/bad way, we are automatically sending out good/bad vibrations to them.
We are communicating using these 27 symbols abcdefghijklm nopqrstuvwxyz. This string of symbols when arranged in a certain order allow us to convey ideas, images ... if i take this string of symbols, arrange them in writing on a piece of paper and in a certain order, then put them in a manifestation box, i can manifest things into my reality, is that not magic?
When we perform magic we use our sixth sense, the hidden parts of our mind, everyone has some experience with premonition, coincidences.
If you have people around you that are negative or depressed you can shield yourself against these influences ... there are many ways to do this; you can use a graphic shield, you can perform a more complicated ritual named the "lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram" ... here is a really good book that i often use "Down to Earth Magic" by Alan Steward ... have fun :)

The "Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram", by Isreal Regardie is an interesting book as well. To be effective, the Hebrew words, including the "Qabalistic Cross" should be said in the proper vibrations. If you are drawn to "Ceremonial Magic(K)" there are many books and rituals available.
Aliester Crowley (who coined the term "Magick" to distinguish between stage magicians and ceremonial work) has some very interesting work, but he had a very playful nature as well as a philosophy that I don't agree with, "If a man is a King, strike him. If he is truly a powerful person it won't hurt him. If he is not, it won't matter to you and he will be out of your way."
So proceed carefully with AC! A man of extremes.
"There is no sin, there is no gult and Just one Law, 'Do as Thou Wilt!'"
There are as many points of view as there are people, maybe more! There is One Power operating throughout the Universe. Call it what you will. IT doesn't care. IT does have consequences depending on how you decide to use it.
Like Bob Proctor says, "Electricity can be used to cook a man's meal; or it can be used to cook a man." The same with magick, magic, elemental magic, LOA, or whatever else you want to call IT.
We can't really be hurt, but we can imagine it.
This is an individual's choice. Their choice from within themselves.
For me, it is very simple. Align with that "Power" by seeking the Beauty around me. All Beauty comes from Source. Ugliness is where we get in the way of Source, when we pinch it off, and ONLY WE have the power to algn or pinch.
So if this is a question that is essentially Beauty or ugliness, it relates to esthetics.
Hmm, gotta spend some time with this idea.
