Healing benefits of performing magic.
Hope through Magic for People
Adversity has a way of disabling a person. As a person that has lived
through adversity, I know magic has given me hope. Magic significantly
helps with social development, cognitive thought, physical skills, and
motivation in rehabilitation.
There are programs that advocate the use of magic in therapy for people
with disabilities: Project Magic of David Copperfield and The Healing of
Magic by Kevin and Cindy Spencer. Performing magic can give a person
hope for the future as a therapy tool. Magic is beneficial for thinking\skills,
social skills, and motor movement skills. This hobby is a motivational tool
that helps to maximize success through adversity. Magic, as a hobby,
provides the possibility of enjoyment in life even though a
person is in adverse circumstances.
A disability is like a brick wall; when a person stands up close to it the brick
wall is all a person can see. However, when a person gets away from the
brick wall there is a view of other things. Magic is a window of opportunity
to see and experience other things in life. It will benefit a person in many
ways and at the same time be very enjoyable.
This material is meant to provide a person with ideas for rehabilitation and
provide motivation for a meaningful activity.
Magic is of help to people with a disability in these areas:
• Socially (Personal, Interpersonal)
• Cognitively (Thinking)
• Physically (Fine Motor)
• Psychologically (Motivation)
These are ideas for working with someone with a brain injury, stroke,
general limited motor movement, or interest in life. It is not important to be
an accomplished magician, but to use magic as a tool for improving physical
and mental health. Magic can greatly help language skills, thinking skills,
and physical motor movement skills for the individual.
These suggestions are not a cure, but a way to maximize success in
CHURCH - Message: LEANING ON FAITH
and DO YOU HAVE A VOICE?
'Leaning on Faith' through difficult times.
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When you’re feeling low and the stress is high,
And you want to smile but have to sigh,
When worries are getting you down a bit…
By all means pray – and don’t you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out,
God’s hidden gift in the clouds of doubt,
You can never tell how close you are-
It may be near when it seems so far.
So trust in the Lord when you’re hardest hit…
It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit!
God will always take care of you.
The power of faith is unlimited.
God can take adversity and use it for His purpose
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
So we say with confidence, The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid."
"He replied, 'Because you have so little faith, I tell you the truth, if you
have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here
to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
"I raise you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you
and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth."
