Verdict: MODERN MAGIC will not be everyone’s cup of tea, but the information is well-presented without being “out there,” and will interest those who seek to explore the divine magic in themselves.
MODERN MAGIC is for those interested in reconnecting with their unique magical selves, as well as with the magical people and world around them. It is an exploration of the magical world in its entirety: what it is, what it encompasses, and what part it plays in the modern world. Included are scientific studies and anecdotal accounts of healing, exploring new avenues of magic, and what happens when one denies the magical part of themselves. Lastly, it is a primer covering more esoteric forms of magic related to the energy that ebbs and flows through everyone on earth, including people.
Spiritual and New Agey, MODERN MAGIC seeks to explore the area where science and magic meet and asserts that neither is mutually exclusive; that quantum physics and bioenergetics are beginning to explain the web of energy that connects everyone and everything on earth. Essentially, what was once considered unknowable or unexplainable by science is now being interpreted by it. Author Matthew Krajewski carefully guides the reader step by step through his reasoning, exploring the realm of magical heritage, including his definition of what it is, why the world needs it, and who magical people are, and he backs up his suppositions with documented end notes. According to the author, there is a far-reaching “silent revolution,” by people who are “reading deep inside to try and better understand themselves and the universe,” and he works to explain the different “modern magical people,” what he calls “energetic reality,” before moving on to offering ways of exploring the world’s magic on a personal level, covering such topics as body energy, karma, psychic abilities, and elementing.
MODERN MAGIC will not be everyone’s cup of tea, but the information is well-presented without being “out there,” and will interest those who seek to explore the divine magic in themselves.
