I love that word!
Derived and borrowed from the ancient Greek, word: Magos
Add a little rrrrrr to the word and it “spells” my name. Makes me love it even more!
I must give my mother more credit for so thoughtfully choosing my earthy name sequence.
Magical! If I do say so myself.
Okay all wit aside
(Okay, maybe not)
After all we are talking magic here.
Raised, eyebrows just seem to go hand in hand.
So let’s throw on a cape and have some fun with this shall we?
How can Magic help you in your life?
I am not talking card tricks and pulling bunnies out of hats. Although that is fun, I am talking real magic.
Not to confuse magic with miracles.
Miracles are a result of intended magic, a manifestation of asking, from a point of shape-shifting an illusion. Believing in magic is a step to creating, and allowing miracles.

Okay, honestly. Did any fear based emotions come up for you?
I am only asking, as I am slightly curious. Apparently, as I have recently been told
"Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought her back"
Directed, to no particular audience .....
Maybe that in it's is self magic.
Moving right along...
Whippity witwit! Alakazam!
Alrighty then. Magic is kind of my thing. I have taken the liberty to translate this Wikipedia version into another, more reasonable and less fear based description of what magic really is. My own responses in bold
Highlighting the same points. My theory. ·
Magic (illusion) Rather than escaping reality, using an art form of higher consciousness to re-write the illusion of your perception ·
Magic (paranormal) Working in tandem with energetic beings (that may not always be seen by the untrained eye) to influence in a positive manner, any situation deemed painful, or out of sequence with our natural state of balance. ·
Ceremonial magic Performing a physical act of release, or ceremony to attract a specific outcome using ancient practice combined with common/uncommon practical wisdom ·
Magick, (Wiki- a specific system of ritual magic deriving from the religious philosophy of Thelema)
(Fact) Aleister Crowley, a 20 century British writer was able to receive information from deities of the other side, whom spoke to him. Marking the beginning of a shift in belief. With regards to following higher “will” by following the calling of one’s true path, a new ethical code. His work, later turned into a spiritual label- referred to as “Thelamites” Note: Thelema itself is the English transliteration of the Koine Greek noun “will” from the verb to will, wish, with purpose. Similar work was also seen in the works of Plato. A personal, favorite Genius·
Magic and religion, (Wiki: which may involve the intercession of deities or other spirits, such as prayer)

Also known as divine wisdom or alchemy, or as the term used in the context of Hermeticism. ·
Magic (fantasy)Truth based “story telling” written over time. In order to keep the magic alive. With intent to remind us of the powers that we still have. Merely a talent to polish.

Magic (Middle-earth, (Wiki- the mystical, paranormal, or supernatural activity, appear in various forms in J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional realm of Middle-earth). ·

So perhaps with that said. We can perhaps open, with a more common, comfortable ideology of practical magic that can in fact help you in many areas of your life!
I do believe that many of us are highly talented magicians,wizards, sorceresses and shape shifters. Just, a little, out of practice.
So we could all use a bit of practical magic!
