Reading Systems, Oracles & Cold Reading

There are many reading systems and oracles in use today, such as Tarot, Palmistry, Cartomancy, Numerology, Astrology (Zodiac), Geomancy, and others. In performance these are often combined with cold reading and other techniques from the mentalists tool box.

Cold Reading means that your reading uses no previously obtained information about the client. You rely on your powers of observation and the ability to make deductions. Taking note on how a person dresses, their carriage, the way they respond to certain categories of questions and their body language can tell an expert a lot about a person’s lifestyle, point of view and education.

This contrasts with Hot Reading, which exploits prior, often secretly obtained, information (there is also Warm Reading, which makes use of verbal feedback obtained from the client during the reading).

TC Tahoe

Tarot Buzz by TC Tahoe

Buzz words and phrases to help learn, remember and understand the Tarot.

"As a reader, TC Tahoe is gentle, empathetic, warm, caring, and incredibly accurate. While he was living here in New Zealand, we'd regularly meet in a local cafe. TC gave readings for several members of the staff, and they still talk about him more than a year later. Highly recommended." - Richard Webster

William W. Larsen & B. W. McCarron

Thayer's Life Span Reading by William W. Larsen & B. W. McCarron

This superb script allows a mentalist or psychic entertainer to apparently reveal any spectator's life, from the cradle to the grave. Is it mind reading? ESP? Vulcan Mind Meld? No, it's Larsen and McCarron's Life Span Reading, the psychic worker's "secret sauce" that, judiciously used, will convince most anyone that you have real psychic ability.

Not a trick, but a psychological profile that fits nearly anyone who walks in the door. Life readings such as this have been jealously guarded by office mediums, who use the spiel to convince the client of the psychic's innate ability. Yet, no special...

Sir Edwards' $100 Horoscope Demonstration Sales Plan by Robert A. Nelson & Sir Edwards

One of the rarest of offerings from the Nelson Enterprises catalog is this horoscope pitch act that sold for the equivalent of $1600 when first introduced. Only the wealthiest of mentalists and psychic operators would have risked this huge sum in 1942, when the plan was first offered. While the steep cover price helped guarantee exclusivity, those who put the plan to use made big money with it. Now you can, too.

In this collection of six books, electronically "bound" together as one, you'll learn Sir Edwards' proven method of selling horoscopes, booklets and lucky pieces to a willing, "off-the-street" audience. Complete...

Devin Knight

Nu-Way Private Reading by Devin Knight

This is one of the cleverest methods ever devised for a one-on-one answering of a written question. The basic method was first created by W. G. Magnuson and later improved on by myself. The spectator writes a question on a slip of paper and folds it into fourths. The mentalist doesn't do the folding. The spectator is then given a match and asked to burn the slip that has been in full view at all times. There is no center tear, nor is the slip torn in any manner. The spectator folds up his question and burns it. The slip is not put into an envelope at any time, it merely rests on a deck of cards.

The performer...

Fishing for Mentalism Dollars by Devin Knight

Here is a new refreshing way to get steady paid bookings as a cold reader. This plan does not involve theater shows, restaurants, costly advertising or renting office space hoping for clients.

The original method was advocated by W. G. Magnuson and Robert Nelson in the early 30s and worked well then; however, Devin Knight has updated this idea to make it 100% practical for today. The cool thing is that this works anywhere in the world, not just the USA.

If you are a mentalist with a good understanding of cold reading then you can work this plan either full-time or part-time. Mentalists around the world are already...

Here's the perfect "one man" comedy mentalism act that's great for those occasions when you aren't able to perform your regular show. Or add it as a feature to your regular act.

Don't confuse this with the old "two person" comedy mindreading act. This hilarious routine can be performed by you, alone, without assistants, stage hands or stooges. Using a crystal ball, a jumbo electric light bulb, or even a swirly-painted bowling ball, you cause a laugh riot by apparently answering questions which have been merely "thought of" by your audience. There's no mystery to it. All you need is this clever...

The Red Light System was built from real intuition and it was built in the performance arena, not sat at home writing grids of meanings for certain things.

Yes, that means if people compare notes afterward, they both will have non-similar readings that apply to them almost 100%.
