Do you want to really amaze your friends or spectator? This routine will make you stand out and seem to have powers that can't be explained. Hand them a notepad and pencil. Tell them to shut their eyes and scribble all over the page. When finished the notepad is closed and placed on the table. They now select a real playing card or one from an imaginary deck or maybe just think of an ESP symbol.
Once the selection has been made, the notepad is open and the spectator closes their eyes for a few seconds. When told to open their eyes they stare intently into their scribbling. As they stare into the scribbling, they also think of the selection that they have made. In a few moments they will start to see the image of their selection appearing and coming into FOCUS within their scribbling. They have somehow written or drawn their selection within their scribbling without knowing it. What strange force compelled them to do this? Remember that the scribbling was done BEFORE anything was selected by the spectator. The card or other item was selected while the notepad was lying on the table. The notepad is simply picked up and the person stares into the scribbling. Talk about a WOW moment.....
Two other different methods are described to accomplish this routine, but their secret workings are not explained because it is common knowledge among mentalists.
