Magic is very much real, though it is nothing like what has been depicted in television and movies. Magic, in essence, is energy. Magic is the energy within nature and the natural world. We tap into this energy or impress our wills upon it to send our desires out into the universe with the intent of bringing about a desired change. Magic can be used to help you reach realistic goals or to get closer to nature and your higher, spiritual self.
All that being said, magic is ruled by scientific law. Meaning, if you can't do it with science or other natural means, then you can't do it with magic either. Magic can't be used to reach unimaginable odds or unrealistic goals.
It depends what kind of magic, and what exactly you mean by real. Real in a broad general term, yes. But excluding most transformation magic such as to become a werewolf or a vampire. None of those I've encountered work.
Magic has been around for centuries, it can be used as good or bad. In my opinion and experience it is real.
For me magic is the ability to make something that you want happen, happen by willing it to happen.
But it does not come with the grandeur of Hollywood so if this is what you are asking, then no.
It is more subtle, almost like a coincidence most times. But when you start having positive coincidences all the time....that's magic.
Positive energy and thoughts have a way of influencing things and this is the basis of magic. The rest of the world calls it prayer...it is a wish for an outcome simply by wanting it and asking a Divine Being to help. Casting a spell is no different except for the fact that it is asked of someone/thing else.
If you stop to look around, there is magic all around us but sometimes we no longer see it because we take it for granted that its there or we are too busy to notice that it's even happening.

The concept of what is real is highly subjective. It is actually healthy to be a skeptic with magick because new experiences are often questioned about their taking place - their reality - and sometimes our mind likes to show us what we want to see.
That being said, magick is very real for me and many other people.
