What Magic Means to Me

  • Sumo

Performing magic is extremely meaningful to me and here’s why.

Magic gives me a way to do something nice and special for others. It’s a way for me to give you an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.

You see, most of my life I have been a very nice person. If you don’t know me very well it will surprise you to know there was a chapter in my life where I struggled with anger.

I’m not going to get into the details of this, but I am very grateful to the people who helped me mature out of that chapter in my life. I’m grateful that I learned and reached a new level of awareness.

It was during the process of healing from my emotional and spiritual dysfunction when I became reacquainted with magic.
Magic was my main hobby from about 9 to 13 years old. I was about 30 years old when I went to a magic show with my parents and some nephews and niece and was reminded of my childhood hobby and the spark was reignited.

What a breath of fresh air to reconnect with a childhood hobby. To reconnect with a time in life before the harsh disappointments of adulthood.

So in that sense, magic is a healing activity for me. I would go so far to say magic is a redemptive activity for me. At the very least it’s therapeutic and I believe it’s important to remind myself of why magic is meaningful to me.

It’s a way to proactively do something nice for others rather than reacting to others out of self-protective anger.

In this moment that is how I express to you why I love magic.
