Depends on your background. I personally unlock my power through experiences, meditation, instinct and time. I will be clear on this that meditation is the most useful for most people, however for some it will only unlock so much until you earn the experience.

meditation is your best bet, while meditating you could have visions to help you narrow down what your ability is. for example, lets say you discover it's clairvoyance, from there you could try drinking teas made from herbs to help with psychic powers [lavender, mace, poppyseed, nutmeg, garlic, peppermint ect.] or carry a stone with you, meditate with it on your third eye [turquoise, sunstone, angel phantom quartz] and try doing some excersizes to help your clairvoyance get stronger. the same can be done for whatever it is but you need to find the right herbs/stones/practices for each specific one.
