I think magic is possible for almost everyone. We all have personal energy & the ability to use energy of nature. However, not everyone has the knowledge or information to actually put this energy to practice. That's just my personal views though. The definition of magic and "ordinary people" might be different to others.

I agree! We're all created from the Divine and have the same abilities as anyone else, but most people are so blocked and have no spirituality that they don't know what is there to use or what their potential is!

We are all connected to the Divine so we all have the potential to tap into that energy.

I think some do without even realizing it too LOL.

I agree, I think everyone could, but most are not tuned in enough to do so. I also think some can do it without realizing it!

I think so too. I think we all have the capacity - my belief is that magic, at its core, is focused intention. Love the way Dandelion put it.

I've gotta be honest, I can't help but scoff at the notion that someone would be able to use it over others. It's almost saying that there's something special about them, like they've got this super special ability that others don't. It drives me insane. I realize that a lot of people (especially younger kids...) really want to be something beyond ordinary, but... bleh.

Well I view magic as something that, well *IS* ordinary. To me, there is nothing really "supernatural" or "EXTRAordinary" about it. It's part of nature. Since we are also part of nature, we all have the ability to tap into this energy. Some are more naturally able to do it more than others (much like some people are just "naturally good at painting" or "naturally good at anything with numbers", etc), but it's not something that is only available to a select few.

Many people do a form of energy work without even realizing it.

I believe everyone can, but the thing is, most wont. That is because they are blind to see it and or accept it.

In a sense, yes. Does everyone have the ability for some sort of magic? Yes. Is everyone going to be good at it? No. Plus you have to add in how on "defines" magic. I do believe some people have abilities that others will never have, or will be better than others at it. That's something that is in every day life, not everyone is going to be good at everything everyone else is.

At its basic level though, yes, everyone has the ability for something in magic. But situations, circumstances and ones own few point play into the extent of it IMO.
