First, let me say that everyone on the face of this earth has some kind of "magic" ability. This can be many many different things. The problem is, most ppl are not even aware of their potential! We use a very small percent of our brain, 5% I believe, so imagine the possiblities of the percent we dont use!
As for finding what your own personal abilities are, you should first research different kind of abilities related to magic. There are too many to list here. But I would recomend trying to find ur own inate gifts (inate gifts u are born with)...inate gifts include precognition, dream interpretation, telepathy, empathy, telekinesis, etc...Now, with inate gifts, u can find them by simply learning to pay attention to things/events in the world around you...
Another thing that I would recomend in the practice of magic is first meditation bc it is essential to many ideas in magic. I would also suggest that u study the philosophys and theories behind not just magic, but the mind itself (I personally like Carl Jung)
I am also wanting to learn more of my gifts.I have so many dreams that have came true and sometimes in my dreams they become a unsteady nightmare as if im actually living them,I always invision myself runnin in a glared light towards a army like of dark clouds that i sense i am fighting against.Please shed some light im currently hoping practicing the power of projection and i have only succeded once..Maybe with your gifts and mine we can open my gifts.
