ronale, first completely spell out your words. Words have power. They show how confident you are, your education, and your beliefs. There greatest power though is that it is a way of communication. The ability to communicate allows friendships to form, then those become towns, cities, finally a country.
To answer your question, the first thing would be belief. No one can do anything without a shred of belief in them. If I told you to walk across a pit of lava, your belief that you would burn would stop you, but when you see me safely walk across you'll believe that the lava is safe and find out that the lava is just red jello. Believe in your abilities to express them.
Then meditation is a good place to start. Magick requires focus and mediation helps with that. Though that is just my own opinion and other people's may differ.
Try meditating for 30 mins a day for a week. Then make it 45 mins. Increase it or decrease it as you will because it is you who is doing the meditation, so you should know how much you require and can take.
Take some time and look around the site. Read some of the spells and articles. Find your path though life and magick. As for directions if you need them, but remember keep an open-mind. There are many mysteries of the world still not solved. Trust others, but always of a shred of doubt till proven worthy of your trust.
