Mentalism – The Power of the Mind can Be Magical
Magic is a great analogy for how we edit reality and form a story — and then mistake that story for the truth. But imagine that truth is an illusion. Human experience, the thing that connects us to everyone else. We are all trapped inside our own heads and our beliefs and our understandings about the world are limited by that perspective. Which means we tell ourselves stories. We make up a story to make sense of what is going on. Magic is a great analogy for how we edit reality and form a story and then mistake that story for the truth.
I always say in my Mentalism shows that I may use misdirection, suggestion, slight of hand, and showmanship. I do not claim to have any supernatural powers…. I, as have many Mentalists, have learned to use a variety of methods to achieve illusions including traditional magic/conjuring techniques, memory techniques, hypnosis, body language reading, NLP and cognitive psychology.
Mentalism is the dubious art of getting inside your head. Editing the reality of the story. It is about selling you a story. To get you to pay attention to one thing I want you to find important and ignore other things I would like you to ignore. Then join up those narrative dots to tell yourself a certain story about what I am doing. This only works because we are storytelling creatures. Come and experience the power of the mind.
