WHAT IS MAGIC? 	In my opinion, Magic is the art of working with the spiritual/ supernatural/ energetic powers and spiritual/ supernatural/ energetic laws of the universe to manifest or bring about a desired outcome. There are various ways to practice magic and various reasons why one would want to. 	The powers or laws that one would work with to practice magic are usually considered to be supernatural or unseen, created by/ derived from or of GOD/God. Magic can be naturally discovered or taught. Not everyone believes in the power of magic. Some believe that magic is not real. THE GENERAL DEFINITION OF MAGIC 	This is what the general definition of magic is of today according to a popular dictionary called Webster’s Dictionary: “1a: the use of means (such as charms or spells) believed to have supernatural power over natural forces b: magic rites or incantations 2a: an extraordinary power or influence seemingly from a supernatural source Both pitchers, although they are older, haven't lost their magic . b: something that seems to cast a spell : ENCHANTMENT all the mystery, magic and romance which belong to royalty alone— J. E. P. Grigg 3: the art of producing illusions by sleight of hand entertained with acts of jugglery and magic” THE GENERAL DEFINITION OF SUPERNATURAL 	 “Supernatural definition is - of or relating to an order of existence beyond the visible observable universe; especially : of or relating to God or a god, demigod, spirit, or devil.” A person who practices magic has been called and known as different names throughout existence. Some may have different names depending on the type of magic that they practice. 	Typically speaking, a practitioner of magic is known as a magician (magi), a witch, a wizard, a warlock, a shaman, pagan, etc. There are different types of magic that are practiced just as there are different forms of spirituality that are practiced. There are different rules and beliefs systems attached to different forms of magic. 	Some use magic to do evil with and some use magic to do good with. Some people use magic for selfish reasons, others use magic for beneficial reasons to help others. Most people use magic or practice magic, whether they are aware of it or not. However, there are not a lot of people who practice magic intentionally while being aware of this practice. Magic has been practiced since the ancient times. Voodoo doctors and Shamans are very, very similar, to the ancient magicians. The practice of voodoo and or the doctrines of voodoo, resonate with the ancient forms of magic. 	Therefore, it is safe to say that voodoo or shamanism are two of the oldest forms of magic that still practice what they were birthed from.
