Ok, I have been looking into all sorts of magick resently, i have another topic posted, but this one will be more specific. I have been doing a lot of reading and experimenting, and nothing has happened for me  cry ... I feel like i need some kind of proof. I believe in this stuff, because it has been around practically forever, but im just skeptical (a word i have seen a lot in this website haha) I figured i would go to people with my question seeing as how there are some smart-as-hell people at this website. My question is: Is there anything i can do like, now or tonight that would give me some kind of reasurance? something small, but something that wouldnt be able to be done by the typical atheist or normal person. (I say "normal" like anyone who isnt into this type of thing)
Thanks

This comes straight from Modern Magick from Donald Michael Kraig, a book I strongly recommend for beginners, if you hadn't seen some of my previous posts here.

Try some "Elemental Meditations".  These are exercises that he presents to help the beginner get used to the Elementals and the impact they have on physical being when attuned to.

Start off in a circle that you have properly banished, i.e. do the LBRP.  Then, sit in the circle and hold your hands about six to eight inches apart.  Visualize a chest between your hands.  Another way to put the same thing, imagine you are holding a strong box.

Now, breath deeply in.  Imagine while taking this breath that you are inhaling all the positive aspects of an element.  You may need to do a Google search, or some research into the elements before you do these, but that is all part and parcel into being a magickian, isn't it.  

Now, exhale all the negative aspects of this same element back into the box.  It may take a few breaths before you fill the box, that is fine.

Keep the same element in mind for the whole operation.  For instance, if you begin with Fire, don't switch to Earth after two breaths.  The reason for this isn't because the Universe will bring a retribution of Telletubbie Marathons on you or anything so horrific, but simply because you are trying to learn the Elements.

When the box is full, imagine a hole opening up in the floor that leads into the middle of the Universe, like an astral trash recycling plant, and drop the chest into the hole.

Wait at least one day between experiments, and write out how you feel before doing this experiment, while you were performing it, immediately afterward, and take some time in the middle of the next day as well to mark any physical things worth noting about the way you feel or think.
