Many people want to know how mentalism magic tricks work and how they can begin to do them within their own life. First, it’s important to know just what mentalism magic is. This particular stage performance is done by a trained magician and creates an air of magic for all who watch. The magician will do a number of different tricks that consist of reading minds, predicting thoughts, or even telling a person about their past. While most of this magic is done on stage, some people use it to their own advantage to become psychics. In some cases, self-proclaimed psychics will be able to cold read a person, which means that they are using mentalism magic tricks on them.
For instance, if you want to look like a tarot card reader who has decades of experience, it’s easy to be one overnight. The trick to this is to lay out the cards for a person and to tell them things that could apply to anyone. An example would be pulling up the Fool tarot card and telling the person you’re reading for that they have made a mistake in their past that they regret. When thinking about it, most of us have made mistakes in our lives that we regret. This is a form of mentalism magic and can also be thought of as cold reading as well.
You may also be able to tell a person’s life story by the way that they present themselves. If you see a wedding ring on a person’s finger, you could mention that their marriage will be long and happy. If you see an engagement ring, you may want to comment on how they have wonderful things in store for them in their near future. Likewise, a finger that does not have a ring can mean that they are either looking for a relationship or that they have just gotten out of one.
The key to mentalism magic tricks is to appear like you have mystical powers. Never let the person that you’re reading for or doing a trick for assume that you don’t know what you are doing. If you get one particular fact wrong, recover well and go on with the reading. Most psychics will use the excuse that no psychic is always correct to recover from any blunders that they may make with a particular client.
It’s important to practice as much as you can. And while some people actually make money off of cold reading, it’s best to just use this particular talent for fun. Try it on friends or family members and see how you amaze them with your cold reading and mentalism abilities. You may also want to research different tricks and try them out on loved ones. Stage magic doesn’t always involve cards and rabbits that get pulled out of hats. You can be a professional psychic in only a matter of weeks with the right practice and all of the right mentalism tricks under your belt.
