"Real magic," according to Dyer ( Your Erroneous Zones ), has nothing to do with sorcerers or fairy godmothers. It occurs in our daily lives when we let go of negativity and self-limiting beliefs about ourselves and our circumstances and instead pursue " perfect equilibrium of the mind." Urging readers to "realign" themselves with the "invisible world," Dyer offers concrete suggestions about how to "get to purpose" through service to others and unconditional love, how to become spiritual beings and how to create a "miracle mindset." He also explores ways readers might improve relationships and find prosperity, personal identity and even physical health. Finally, he explains how "real magic" can be plumbed on the global level to alleviate world problems. With anecdotes from his personal life, Dyer illustrates his own "magnificent transformation," testifying that "real magic" has led him to the higher awareness he cheers his readers toward. $150,000 ad/promo; author tour.

From Kirkus Reviews
Dyer (You'll See It When You Believe It, 1989, etc.) recaps the major tenets of New Age thinking--power meditation, unified field theory, mind-body healing, and prosperity consciousness, to name a few. ``Real magic,'' according to Dyer, is the seemingly miraculous response of the environment to a unity of purpose and belief in the individual. Whatever you believe, he says, you will create both within and outside yourself. Your present circumstances have also been created by you in the past--and this is not blaming the victim, Dyer insists in the face of criticism that it is cruel to hold the poor and ill responsible for their misfortune; rather, he claims, it is an empowering of the victim by offering the promise of self-created change. Health, prosperity, a more pleasing and successful personality, fulfilling relationships--all are within our power to bring into being. How? By becoming more spiritual beings; by being open to divine guidance; by meditating daily; by being willing to believe in a reality beyond that verifiable by the five senses; by developing a loving, accepting attitude. The power of real magic also radiates beyond the individual, Dyer maintains, so that a person who has gotten ``to purpose'' can change the world just by being. All this is more or less familiar to readers of Deepak Chopra, Jose Silva, Krishnamurti, and others. Dyer's strength is in popularizing these thinkers and their ideas for the mainstream; his weakness is in a certain whiff of infatuation with his own celebrity that now and then wafts up from his pages. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.

I first read this book about 10 years ago. It was the 1st spiritual book I had ever read. Within a few days my life was completely transformed. Yes, I said a few days. Just from following Wayne's very simple advice. It is so simple, it can actually be deceptive. We tend to brush these very simple principles off for more "intensive" teachings. We want something that gets into things like past psychoanalysis or something more "complex" that involves a lot of either writing journals, goal setting or some very "deep" philosphy that is usually quite dry but we force ourselves to read these things due to how supposedly "deep" these thinkers were.
Then comes along a little book like "Real Magic" that is basically just teaching you that we can align ourselves with 'purpose'(realizing that we are spiritual beings having a human experience)and living every moment aligned with that and living our lives based on cultivating 'Knowings' instead of fear and doubt.
Of course that is just an abbreviation of the teachings, but those are the 2 main points that continuously come up throughout the whole book.
I don't know how Wayne managed to do it, but please trust me when I say this book is a very, very special book. I have read almost all of Wayne's book and they are all a variation of the same spiritual theme, but for some reason, I find this book to be just so effective, simple and magical. Even more than all his others to date.
Now, even though I said that it changed my life in a few days, that does not mean that I didn't have huge challenges from the time I discovered 'Real Magic', times where I gave up on these teachings and dismissed them due to being "overly simplistic". No matter how many times I feel that way, I always eventually come back to the foundation of these teachings and realize that these universal principles are so profound, life changing and spiritually enlightening.
What I've learned over the years are 2 main things about this book: not to read this book as just another pop "positive thinking" book. That is not what makes this book magical. What makes it magical, is that Wayne found a way to create an extremely accessable book that will bring you closer to Spirit and the power of 'knowing'. The second thing is that like anything else, it takes a certain discipline and persevearance to make this work for a lifetime. It doesn't just "click" for life. There are times when one needs to really use the muscle of intention to keep it together. That is sometimes overlooked because we think that it should just 'flow' always. It doesn't quite work that way. However, eventually, your connection to Source deepens more and more and your connection becomes effortless most of the time.
This is really a book about finding your true essence and manifesting miracles in the physical world. The outcome is joy and peace and a world where your deepest desires pop up and you manage the coincidences of your life...I'm not exaggerating when I say that!!
You are Light, Spirit and Magic, this book will very simply teach how to access that domain of Heaven on Earth.
