Psychological Reading

Robert A. Nelson

Psychological Reading by Robert A. NelsonNOTE: This reading is also contained in the Nelson book, Confessions of a Medium.

Amaze any spectator, even one whom you've not met before, by giving an in-depth character reading that reveals psychological insights your client hasn't shared with anyone.

Spectators are more readily convinced by fortune tellers, and the like, if the reader begins the reading without first asking a lot of questions. In other words, the psychic gives the reading "from the cradle to the grave," as though the spectator's life were the pages of an open book.

No sooner does the client enter the room, then immediately the reader...

Victorian Seance and the Birth of Mentalism

Paul Voodini

Victorian Seance and the Birth of Mentalism by Paul VoodiniPaul Voodini presents Victorian Seance and the Birth of Mentalism, recounting the rise of Spiritualism in the 1800s, the antics, tricks, and techniques of the fraudulent mediums, and how this led directly to the birth of that branch of the magical arts known as 'mentalism.'

This detailed manuscript outlines and explains such techniques and methods as mesmerism and hypnosis, table-tipping, slates, automatic writing, book tests, 'reading' techniques and Q&A, spirit manifestations, the Ouija board, and much, much more. The text also touches on escapology, quick change, and other magical techniques. ...

Thought Extractions

Maurice Janssen

Thought Extractions by Maurice JanssenJust imagine showing a spectator a single word and then having them just think of any letter from that word. Next, you ask them to think of another word that begins with the letter they just thought of moments ago. You can begin to reveal details about their thought of item and then reveal their specific thought. There are no weird questions asked, no spelling, no phishing, no maths, they don't say anything or write anything, no dual reality, no pre-show, etc. This trick does NOT work 100% of the time.
  • Instantly repeat the effect with a different thought of letter
  • One time set up
  • Fits in...

Foolzum Newspaper Tear Revisited

Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

Foolzum Newspaper Tear Revisited by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick GrantA full size sheet of newspaper is handed for examination; both the magician and a spectator sign their names on the front of the newspaper. Without adding anything, the newspaper is openly and deliberately torn-up with the audience plainly seeing the signatures being torn.

After the newspaper is torn into small pieces, the magician blows on the pieces. The rough edges of the paper are seen to get smooth, and upon opening the newspaper out, it is restored. But wait, only half the paper is there. The other half falls to the floor.

The audience thinks they are the torn pieces. The packet...

Every mentalist needs an arsenal of peek methods, be that a device, or a folding peek. The Peeks of Chaos contains two peek devices, each using the card box: the "Mockra Peek", and the "Meanas Peek". Each method is very deceptive, and the peek happens at a natural moment, with no funny movements.

Technique of the Private Reader

Robert A. Nelson

Technique of the Private Reader by Robert A. NelsonNelson reveals the special techniques that enable psychics and mentalists to give spectacular private readings.

Successful operators are able to astound and bewilder clients with apparent facts and reason, though unbeknownst to them. Where does this strange and uncanny power come from?

It's easy to "give readings," to apparently read the innermost thoughts of your subject and to chart their life from "cradle to grave," if you possess the technique - the knowledge of how to judge your client. What to tell him or her and how to accurately read their reactions. Such is the true secret. ...

Perfection One-Man Mindreading Act

He states that he will pass among them slips of paper and envelopes on which they are to write phone numbers, dates, addresses, questions, etc. He states he will allow them to keep the slips in their own possession and nevertheless be able to tell what was written. He then passes the slips and envelopes and returns to the stage, asking them to place the envelopes under...

No Way!

Devin Knight

No Way! by Devin KnightThis is one of my all-time favorite card tricks (miracles); because after seeing it, most spectators say, "NO WAY!"

Imagine this; you spread a regular deck of cards face up between your hands. All the cards are seen to be different. You tell your spectator that you want him to remove one card behind your back so there is no way you can see the card he selected. You turn your back towards him and spread out the cards face up behind your back. He is asked to remove any card and not let you see what it is. Next he takes a Sharpie pen and puts his initials on the face of the card. He inserts...

Pocketses

Mark Elsdon

Pocketses by Mark ElsdonThis was my absolute favourite anytime-anywhere card miracle last year. I created it just before the Blackpool Magic Convention and so I've decided that the time is perfect to release it.

Effect: From a borrowed, shuffled deck you remove two single cards which you place into your pockets. You quite openly state that these are predictions: one card will match the suit, and the other card will match the value of the card that the participant is about to choose! The participant shuffles the deck and removes a card. 100% free choice, no force. Let's say it is the Ace of Hearts. You remove the...
