Is there a connection between magic and spirituality?
There is probably no direct connection, however it really depends upon the magician and performer. I know many magicians that are deeply spiritual and find that through performing they use this as a way to connect deeper to their spirituality. Although magic and mentalism are entertainment primarily, it does often have spiritual overtones, which can be of interest to many people.
I’d always be cautious though about making direct links between magic and true spirituality – what is see is really entertainment and shouldn’t be confused with ‘real’ experiences.
However deeply held belief about anything can produce incredible changes.
