I'm also new, I started a couple months ago.
The best thing I can say for Psiballs is probably just to meditate and take your time.
It will take a couple days/weeks until you start feeling it, so don't get discouraged.
The best way I can say to tell if you're attracting the energy is that your hands will begin to feel numb and tingly, kinda like when you sit on your leg for to long and it feels like pins and needles. Only with Electrokinesis, it will feel stronger and much more powerful.
Take your time when learning.
Give it a couple of weeks or months before you can start.
And it also might help if you hold back on the psiballs until you learn more about it.
Since your brand new, you still have a lot of learning to do.
You can't become a Witch over night.
So just keep learning.
You'll get the hang of it soon. =)
