I have always had an interest in magick and know I have power but cannot identify it. I feel things, spirits and such I also can usually find things people are looking for by "feeling" for them. I have a very strong intuition and want to continue deeper into it by doing spells and such. I only want to do White Magick and am not sure where to or how to start. I have read the Newbees Meditation and Centering and the like but would love to have someone help me get started. Do I meditate for a day or a week or month? when can I start doing spells? What do I need to start? I need guidance Is there a book I can get to help me?
Hey, I am in the same situation as you. All the girls on my mums side of the family, going back for what seems like forever have had "abilities" in this field. My aunty is AMAZINGLY powerful and skilled and I feel like if I trained mysel and started practicing I could too be quite powerful. I am going to start meditating once daily and then maybe in a week or two or whenever I feel I can try out a spell. Can anyone more experienced let us know if we are headed in the right path, also any tips for beginners?

Well, if you're serious about learning how to do magic and with starting from the rock-bottom then you don't start out by casting spells, you start out by learning how and why magic works.
You see, there is no such thing as an "easy" spell or a "beginner" spell. One either understands how magic works and has mastered the basics...in which case the magic will work..or you haven't done that sort of work..and no spell will work no matter how "easy" it seems.
Casting a successful spell involves much more than finding some spell on the internet or in a book, saying some words, lighting a candle, waving a wand of any of that sort of thing. In order for magic to work you need to understand how and why it works in the first place. Grounding and centering, visualization, focus and intent, energy manipulation, etc are all necessary first steps to even begin to have a chance at a spell actually working...and more importantly to prevent a spell from back-firing on you.
So, my advice for anyone who is truly serious is to start by reading a few books and practicing the exercises those books will give you. Once you have mastered the basics you won't need anyone to give you spells, you'll be able to create your own spells that will be far more effective than anything you find on the net. Here's the books I suggest:
"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman
"Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar
