First I'd look into the basics. Grounding, shielding, meditation, energy work, hw energy and spells work, ect.. Educate yourself, and work on the basics. Than you can start to actually practice.. This is my recommendation though. Whatever you feel comfortable with is fine. Follow your gut instinct.
Feel free to message me with any questions you may have. I will answer them to the best of my abilities. Poke around in the forums a little. There are a lot of great threads that can help you with the basics. You can also check out any of my 132 youtube videos for some extra help. HERES THE LINK: http://www.youtube.com/midnightmoonlight7
