magic exists, but its not always as easy as saying an incantation and money falling out of the sky into your lap. There's not a wide market for magic in today's overly appearance oriented world, so many practicing magi are poor.
but if you are asking, can a person invoke energy or spiritual force/forces in order to receive a response, the answer is unequivocally yes. Don't judge a magus by their bank account tho, money is an earth element thing and magic is usually less dense and rooted in the fire of transformation. They are two entirely different things.
i agree with informer about angels and demons.. oversimplified ways of dealing with an infinite omniverse of countless beings of varying moral orientations.
i like your observation that your life is indeed miraculous. Everything is thusly miraculous! But i won't derail your thread. Energies and forces can be harnessed and directed by the mind, intention, sound vibrations, body movements, prayers, etc. In that way, all human life is magic and magical!
But stumbling along blindly and harnessing the power of your own intention are two different things now aren't they

"All the philosophical theories that exist have been created by the mistaken dualistic minds of human beings. in the realm of philosophy, that which today is considered true, may tomorrow be proved to be false. No one can guarantee a philosophy's validity. Because of this any intellectual way of seeing whatsoever is always partial and relative. The fact is that there is no truth to see or to confirm logically; rather what one needs to do is to discover just how much the mind continually limits itself in a condition of dualism." -Chogyal Namkhai Norbu
