It's a great tip Dilon, spiritual journeys and meditations are indeed good ways to get awareness to the occult.
I'd say that Divination has to do with awerenss as well. Divination is an ancient concept of drawing information from a higher source, the world around you, or from deep within yourself to attain knowledge of what is not obvious or directly in front of you. Learning about this would be interesting for your spiritual awereness.
I'd usually tell someone who wants to open up to magic to simply be exposed to the arts and live it in their daily life. By doing that you basically develop your awereness step by step.
