For starters you could learn how to raise energy related to your intentions, learn how to ground and center yourself, mediation and improve your visualising skills. I guess you could try simple candle spells that have a chant and after everything gets over you can let the candle burn itself out. That would be good for starters and that's how I started. You could also go for simple paper buring spells after when it's over you simply toss the ashes into the air.
Good luck with your first attempt!!!
