Meditate. You need to learn to quiet and control your mind. The Elements of Spellcrafting by Jason Miller is an excellent guide for beginners. I read it a couple times when I was starting.

I see that this topic is your first post.

It’s a rule of the forum that you post an introduction either in the mega thread or create your own (topic) in the new member category.

Learn to shield, banish and ward. As well as cleanse

Where to start would entirely depend on what your strengths and weaknesses are, your personal preferences and what you’re personally drawn too.
Most people would suggest meditation, cleansing, shielding etc. However, it depends entirely on yourself.
Without the basic idea of direction, it’s a little hard to give proper direct advice.
If I were to be cheeky, waking up in the morning and having a stretch after and then a coffee, but once again, that’s a personal thing.

About books, for example Kraig’s Modern Magick, E. A. Koetting’s BALG ebook or Ordo Ascensum Aetyrnalis. Israel Regardie and Eric Koetting agree on divination as a possible starting point (followed, from Regardie’s point of view, by talismans). Some reasons are that in this way it’s possible to know astrology which may then be observed in magickal workings, also clairvoyance is either awakened or improved and helps to see the spirits when (/if) they will be evoked.
