Four Mentalism effects using playing cards in unique presentations!
THE WITCH'S CONNECTIVITY/BALANCE READING:
Witchcraft was originally an oral tradition; all of its rites and beliefs were passed on by word of mouth, with nothing written down. It was not until the persecution of the Middle Ages, when Witches had to meet in secret and consequently were unable to maintain contact with one another, that any of the rituals were set down in a book called The Book of Shadows, since the Witches had to meet "in the shadows". What I'm about to show you, is a sort of card reading from such a book. It uses exactly 52 cards, a full deck if you will ... did you know these things (cards) have a history of 800 years? Have you ever wondered if there's more to these cards than just mere games of chance? What if their true purpose was to leave nothing to chance? Something to think about....
This presentation can be adapted as a friend connection, a love connection, or a work connection, business rapport, the connection between married couples, brothers, sisters, etc. You can use this routine to conclude whether something will happen for the participant, for instance: if the participant has an important event coming up, you do this reading to see if it'll all work out well. In the end, the cards come up making sense and positive. You could also present this as simple as an experiment to find out if the participant is "balanced" and "in line with the cosmos" at this time.
A performance for every occasion!
COLLECTIVE ACTIONS AND THOUGHTS - THE ANCIENT GYPSY EXPERIMENT
Ancient Gypsies believed in the connectivity of all human kind and they would often use these pairs of cards ... a pair of Aces, Kings, Queens and Jacks ... It was in an old Gypsy Fortune Telling booklet that I read about this experiment ... I remember reading that the actions and thoughts of the individual contribute to the collective actions and thoughts of all humanity ... I found this very interesting, in other words, in this test, your actions and thoughts, if this works, will contribute to my actions and thoughts, and we'll have a harmonious result ... so let's try it out!
AS ABOVE ... SO BELOW - THE TRISMEGISTUS CONNECTIVITY DEMONSTRATION *
As above ... so below...
This phrase comes from the beginning of The Emerald Tablet and embraces the entire system of traditional and modern magic, which was inscribed upon the tablet in cryptic wording by Hermes Trismegistus.
The significance of this phrase is that it is believed to hold the key to all mysteries. All systems of magic are claimed to function by this formula. "That which is above is the same is that which is below".
This experiment will work as a reading of sorts ... I'll explain more later .... I would like you to mix the cards and once done, hand them to me.
LET THE HEALING BEGIN - A HEALING EXPERIMENT WITH CARDS
Dr. Wendy Woo has been a healer for a number of years, not only through the use of psychology, but also through physical means while using the various spiritual tools of her psychological and esoteric trade.
She taught me one of her healing techniques using a simple deck of cards.
With proper intention and desire, people have mentioned feeling much better after the procedure, more balanced, and more focused.
Naturally, Dr. Wendy Woo does this for real, but she has shared a way for me to be able to fake her abilities.
"I am a healer, we all are really, but for this healing experiment, I want you to concentrate on a negative emotion or negative energy you want to minimize or get rid of...."
