Breaking through wards, and anything holding back ascent

Any ideas?
What should a non adept magician be doing daily?

Meditation, focusing on what lies back of, and beneath, the conscious mind.

Observing the conscious mind as a thing in its own right and not all of experience or all of you.

Doing as much of different kinds of magick as possible, immerse in one thing then move onto another.

(And shitposting occasional silly memes on here and making typoes, that’s my secret, don’t tell anyone.)
