Don't be nervous or anything. Most of us don't bite lol.
Definitely check out the FAQ tab, Newbie Central, and some of the articles. If you want you can watch some of the videos here on the site. That should definitely be enough to get you completely ready to know where you are going from there. If you are looking into starting working with magick, the fundamentals include: energy manipulation, grounding, and centering. Some may say that astral projection is an important part of learning magick, but I wouldn't say its necessary(it probably makes it easier though).you may wana learn to meditate, but at first focus on grounding, centering, and energy manipulation.
