is a three-phase card routine wherein you NEVER touch the deck. The deck is borrowed and shuffled multiple times. Yet, the routine is entirely self-working and will work the majority of the time. No risk; no reward. Yes, there is a chance of one of the phases not working; and even lower chance that none of the routine will work. There is a simple scripting for why one or all the phases did not work. The majority of time, you will have a three-phase miracle routine.
The scripting of the routine is what really sells each individual effect. The methods are essentially the effect but the scripting hides this fact. You are not paying for methods (in a sense, there really aren't even any methods to be disclosed). You are paying for the script; the reason d'etre of why you are doing the effect, and why supposedly the routine is working.
Psychic Self is self-working. The script progresses naturally from one phase to another, and is easily remembered. Again, this routine is not 100%, but it is close enough that you will want to perform it often.

I have mixed feelings about this. My experience with this has been less than 'miraculous'. On the plus side, it can be a great opener to get a conversation going with a borrowed, shuffled deck that you never touch. But it does not work with any consistency, so I've had to do some convincing of the 'miracles'. I do recommend this, though, since the thinking behind this is excellent. It has indeed inspired me to work on personalizing the effects to lead to other things.
