We all learn from one source or another... I know when I joined this site roughly 2yrs ago,.. I stumbled upon this site and was drawn to something higher than I could ever imagine!!!
I luckily had a true friend that I made through this site that taught me the ways and the startings, as I had never come accross this way of life and it wasnt until I learnt about myself and the effects of the universe that I realised I had gifts and slowly was able to put them all together...
Not only have I learned through others, also via my own learning but that would not of been through guidance and a starter from others!!!
It is never wrong to ask for help as we all once in a lifetime (no matter what it is we wish to know) we all ask for help and guidance!!!!
My adivce to you 'indeed' is to start with basic meditation tasks and grounding.. find crystals that you are drawn to and draw yourself to a dietie (God, Spirit) that calls to you that you can turn to for help and guidance aswel...
Hope this helps!!
