How does magic work


Magic is the process of control and manipulation of the energies of nature and as these energies exist in all substances of nature with creating change in these energies it causes to change within the physical substance. As manipulation or alteration in any energy reality causes to bring changes in material reality. The science which causes magic explains that the earth has electromagnetic field and we all exist within this electromagnetic field, magician uses energy which causes transfer of energy and creates interaction between earth’s electromagnetic field and consciousness of people. In order to effectively perform magic magician need to keep improving his visualization skills and should train his mind to think spontaneous in all different situations. Desire, form and manifestation are the key elements of magic as what magician desire to do as it can be said as what magician need to perform at this level, need is expressed as an imagination and this form an idea in imagination  and then with precision desire of magician manifest on the physical level.


Magic is an art form which can be learnt by anyone but someone adapt this art more easily and quickly than others. Magic is the real mastery which comes with a lot of practice, time or by natural talent. Magic is also inherent in some people by birth. In the entire electromagnetic spectrum all things, people, animals, substances and sub substances are connected with each other and we all are part of this spectrum so magic not only comes from the internal energies but also from the external energies of the universe.


The fundamental principle on which magic is based on is “suspension of disbelief” as when we see the lady in half, we really don’t believe it ever but if magician performance is good we forget everything else and starts believing in what magician wants to show.
