Why The Magician’s Message is One We All Need To Hear


Magic makes us happy. Most of us, when we see a magic trick, will smile. We might laugh out loud. We might just say “wow”, or “how did he do that?” But we feel good. And we feel this way because the magician has, for a brief moment, broken down our collective sense of reality and reminded us that there is more to the world than meets the eye.

When you are in a crowd watching a magician perform, you may feel like you are at the show with your friend, but you are actually not.

When I was younger, I used to think that magicians were tricksters. They were just trying to make people look stupid, taking their money and making them feel like idiots. This was right until I saw a magic show. It was so beautiful, so charming and so engaging that I could not help but be hypnotized by it all.

I remember thinking to myself “Hey! These tricks are really cool!” And then: “Wait! This is not real! It’s fake! He is tricking me just like he tricked everyone else!” But what happened next changed my life forever.

The magician had this idea that he would share his secrets with the world for free. He wanted people to know how the magic tricks worked, so they could better appreciate them. This was something new for me. Before I had never been able to understand how these tricks worked because they were secret tricks that only magicians knew about. This was the thing that made me a fan of magic for life, because I could now appreciate what these magicians were doing and why they were doing

Have you ever seen a magician cut a woman in half? Well, it’s not real. The woman is lying on a diagonal board with a concealed gap, and the magician is holding the two parts of the board together to hide the gap.

Have you ever seen someone do card tricks? Well, those aren’t real either. There are a number of ways to cheat at cards, whether it’s palming or marking them.

Have you ever seen someone sawed in half? That’s not real either; there are secret compartments in the box they use that allow them to survive being sawed in half.

I could go on and on… but have you noticed something about all these magic tricks? They aren’t really there to fool people. Sure, they will make people say “How did he do that?!” But what I think is much more important about magic tricks is that they teach us something about ourselves and the world we live in. I want to show you what two of my favorite magicians have taught me about life: David Blaine and Derren Brown.

Magic is an art form that is based on the illusion of the impossible. The magician’s job is to show the audience something that they can’t understand, and then explain it in a way that is understandable and simple. In fact, there are many times when magicians perform tricks that seem impossible, but are really very simple if you know how to do them. In that way, magic is not just a performance; it is also a metaphor for life. You may see something or someone doing something you don’t understand and think it’s impossible, but once you learn the trick behind it, you can do it too!

For example, a magician could have put a coin in his hand and then closed his fist around it. He shows the audience his closed fist and says “I bet I could make this coin disappear!” And with a wave of his other hand over his fist, he opens his hand slowly to reveal that there is no coin in it anymore…

But where did the coin go? It was right there just a second ago!

The magician smiles at the audience as he reaches into his pocket and pulls out another coin. “Do you want to see me do it again?” he

A few months ago, I met a street magician. He had performed a trick for my friend and her family, and they were all raving about how amazing he was. It seemed like he’d pulled off some kind of magic in front of their eyes.

Being the cynical person I am, I approached him with the intention of spotting his trick and disproving his claims of magic.

But I couldn’t work it out. As far as I could tell, he was doing real magic right there on the street.

He asked me if I wanted to see another trick. Of course, I said yes.

This time, he told me to pick a card from the deck of cards in his hands. He asked me to remember it and then show it to him before putting it back in the deck and shuffling them up again. He handed the deck back to me and asked me to hold onto them for him for a minute while he went about doing something else (I can’t remember what). A few minutes later, he turned around with a small piece of paper in his hand. On it was written my card — the one that had been randomly chosen from the deck just moments before that was now hidden inside my jacket pocket

I went to see David Blaine’s latest show, Real or Magic, last week. It was my third live magic show and second David Blaine show. I knew from experience that Blaine has a talent for making his spectators feel special, like they were part of the show.

But this time, I felt something else – something that I never expected from watching a magic show. Watching it made me think about some of the things in life that matter the most to me, and it made me reflect on some of my life choices.

Blaine opened the show by asking an audience member “I need you to help me with this trick – do you have a wish?” Then he pulled out a coin and asked the audience member to make a wish while rubbing the coin with his thumb. After showing both sides of the coin (heads) he blew on it and asked us to check again. When we looked at the coin again, we saw that it was now tails! The audience cheered as Blaine walked away and continued with his next trick.

The theme for the night? Our wishes do come true – but only if we believe in them.

We all want to feel like we’re special. We all want to be fooled.

The magician exists in a world of infinite possibility. He uses this to his advantage by presenting us with the impossible, and then showing us that it really can be done. There’s nothing more enthralling than seeing something that simply cannot happen, happen right before your eyes. Unfortunately, in the real world, we are often forced to accept the fact that extraordinary things just don’t happen to ordinary people. This is why we love magic shows so much: they make us feel special, even if only for an hour or so.

The magician takes you out of your mundane life where all you do is work, eat, sleep and repeat. He makes you forget about everyday problems and stresses and helps you escape into a world where anything is possible. Even if only for a short time, he makes you feel special; he gives you his undivided attention and presents you with something that seems impossible, just for you. The way he looks at you while he performs leaves no doubt in your mind that you are the center of his universe.

The perfect illusion needs three things: misdirection, deception and showmanship (and a lot of practice!). Magicians use these three elements in
