Suppose I wanted to use spells for protection, healing, or love, what would you recommend? Are there methods of magick used for connections to the astral or opening the third eye?

Spells for protection can mean passive spells, like shielding and wards, or it can mean active spells, like bindings.  It can even mean pre-emptive spells, like cursing.  If you look in the left hand column of the page, under the heading Pagan Features, you will find the Spell Grimoire, which lists at least some examples of the first two, I think.

It is useful, even necessary, to study the theory behind these kinds of spells.  For example, shielding works by preventing harmful elements from affecting you, usually on a magical or emotional level.  People visualize their shields as mirrors, armour, bullet-proof glass, etc.  There are all kinds of books out there to help with this.  I would recommend a keyword search on Amazon , google, or TC's article library.

Binding is usually done symbolically, when you know specifically who you are in danger from.  Binding 'anyone who wishes me ill' is generally far too vague, and not recommended.

Spells for healing and love can be found just about anywhere.  The important thing is to be able to make the connection between the spell and the desired result, to understand the process or theory of how they work.  Again, a keyword search will give you a whole bunch of examples to study and compare.

You will find as you read over spells and rituals that some things will resonate with you, some methods will 'make sense' more than others.  These are the ones to pursue and study further, since effective magic is very personal.

Check out the grimoire.  If you want to write your own spells once you understand the theory, check out the article library.  If you want to see 'cookbook' spells (which a lot of people denigrate but I personally find as useful as self-made ones) check out sites like Puzuzu.

I'm sorry if I'm not answering your intent properly.  I can't give you examples of spells I use personally because they don't translate well out of my personal paradigm.  You really have to study up on various methodologies.  You'll find the terms Will and Intent repeated a lot, but you have to come to a personal understanding of these terms on your own.

Blessed are the cracked, for it is they who let in the light.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
