Growing up in the Mid-Eighties it was the height of sophistication to have a Magician perform at your Birthday Party. Looking back it seems like every weekend involved going to someone’s house and witnessing some poor bugger with the dubious title of “Uncle Maurice” or “The Majestic Norman” suffering the ignominy of a bunch of hyped up 5 year olds off their faces on E-Numbers causing mayhem during the Punch and Judy show by trying to climb into the box and join him…or stealing the puppets of his magic hands…(though not at my party which was cut short due to my Mum poisoning everyone with rancid butter in my Fairy Princess Castle Cake…I was ill-received in the World of Primary 2 for a while there I can tell you…and Mystic Derek never appeared at a party for me again.)
My favourite parts of the show were always when the Magician pulled a rabbit from a hat…or made a bunch of flowers appear from thin air. I could never work out if it had really appeared from nowhere-or if it had been there the whole time and I just couldn’t see it.
The Bag of Tricks section on this blog is going to contain everything I’ve ever heard of that’s helped people feel or get better from chronic illness…whether the improvement is physical, emotional, spiritual, it doesn’t matter it’s going on here. Because I believe that each of us can always find improvement in our situation, no matter which stage on the Journey to Wellness we find ourselves…if you have any suggestions yourself I’d love to hear them! Because while I may not be a magician (or, thankfully a rancid cake-maker), I might just be able to point out an answer that’s been there the whole time without you noticing…only if you promise not to nick my Punch & Judy puppets though…
