Magicians are above all performers – not the type of magicians some people associate to films like Harry Potter!
However the power of belief can be truly magical! I’ve know people who totally believe in all sorts of rituals that really seem to work – for example, and old mechanic I knew would bury a potato in his garden during a full moon if he wanted to get rid of a wart, because he believed this would cure the wart – some sort of old wive’s tale!
The amazing thing is that it actually worked! Probably not so much the burying of the potato, but the belief that it would work. The mind body connection is truly amazing and real belief in healing can have miraculous results.
