The definition of magic is, "Any art that invokes supernatural power".

Is it possible that we all work magic in some way, shape or form?

Sorry, I would argue that there is no such thing as "supernatural".
"Magic" is the control and channeling of Earth energies, and the application of the Will.

Alright. Fair enough.

I think this definition is one of the best currently:

"Magick is the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with will." - Aleister Crowley.

Under that definition, pretty much everything can be considered 'magic'. But many use it in a more narrow sense to refer to change brought about by more esoteric methods.
