There are a lot of things here to get you started in learning some more about magic. Type in "bassics" to the search bar, or check out the SoM Survival guide.http://www.spellsofmagic.com/coven_ritual.html?ritual=1944&coven=1
Anyways, those things will help. The basics are a good place to start. And I think you are right, I think we all have innate magical abilities, but they aren't like what you see on tv. It's a bit more subltle.
Feel free to mail me if you wanna talk or if you have any questions! I hope you find what you are looking for.
