Easy Mentalism - Displaying Mentalist and Mind Reading Routines by J. Jacquard
Welcome to the easy world of mind reading and mentalism. The techniques and effects revealed in this ebook will enable you to put on a terrific display of mentalist and mind reading routines that will astonish your friends, family and colleagues. You may find that after demonstrating your amazing mental powers, people never think of you in the same way again!
Imagine asking someone to select a card at random from a normal deck of cards. You ask them to concentrate on the design of the card. You look into their eyes. You examine tiny inflections of the muscles in their face. Then piece-by-piece, you name the card they have. First you state the color, then the suit and finally you state the exact card they chose! All this is done without ever looking at their chosen card – not even a sneak peek.
Or how about asking someone to flick through a normal book, then to read and concentrate on the first line of a chosen page. Again you look into their eyes and after a short time, scribble something onto a notepad. You ask the person to read the first line out aloud. You turn your notepad over, revealing you’ve written exactly the same sentence your volunteer was reading.
These two effects alone will convince people you really can read minds!
Some More incredible effects Include:
Pseudo Hypnosis - Against their will, a spectators fingers stick together by mind control.
Find the Lady - they win occasionally, but you WIN EVERY Time!
Flatliner - A spectator is asked to take your pulse. Soon your pulse slows down until it finally stops, dead.
Cutting cards by touch - a Spectator give you a number - you cut the cards and by touch alone you have removed that amount of cards that the spectator dictated.
Wallet, Watch & Coin - a Spectator places his wallet, Watch and coin on a table, you turn your back while he places them in different pockets - using your skills you will be able to announce what item is in what pocket.
Someone hides a coin in their fist - by reading their body language you can tell which hand the coin is in.
Who's Got What - Three people select three different playing cards from a deck of cards. Without watching them, you can correctly state who has chosen which card.
Guess The Card - You let someone cut a pack of cards and remove 1 card - ask them to concentrate on that card, without seeing it and with a moments concentration you can tell them the card they are holding.
You’ll also learn how to make predictions. For instance, you place a sealed envelope and three coins of differing values on the table. The spectator chooses one of the coins and flips it. You open the envelope, revealing that not only have you correctly predicted which coin they would choose but also whether it would land heads up or tails up.
Or how about asking someone to draw a simple picture and to seal it in an envelope. In another demonstration of your mind reading powers, you can describe the picture they’ve drawn, even reproducing it exactly if you wish.
All of these routines and many more are fully explained in easy to follow step by step ebook guide. You’ll have seen effects like these done on television and stage by famous illusionists. Now you can learn their secret techniques and perform these illusions yourself. You’ll be amazing people with your newly found skills after just a few hours practice and what’s more, you’ll enjoy the dumbstruck expressions on your victims’ faces.
The ebook is divided into two sections. The first presents a wide selection of mind reading Illusions and Psychological Illusions. The second part is an Introduction to Hypnosis.
I’ll say it now and repeat it several times throughout the ebook – the secret to performing convincing mind reading illusions is in the performance. Some of the techniques you’ll learn are astonishingly simple, so the more you can do in your performance to distract your audience away from that fact, the better. The introduction to hypnosis is included to give you some idea on how you can phrase your patter and increase the illusion.
