Hello fellow brothers in Christ...I'd like to get some ideas for revamping two tricks with patter that doesn't compromise my Christian integrity when presenting them to others...two effects...Ben Harris's Hole in Head and Peter Loughran's Rainmaker...both appears awesome tricks but they involve chants and third eye Chakras and all that stuff..ideas for revision? Thanks!

This is only a guess by seeing the Ad for Ben Harris' Hole in the Head... but one could talk about Visibly seeing the Holy Spirit?

Or perhaps one of the conversations around early mystics, that it was thought that Mystics that were extremely holy and in touch with God would manifest this through a ring of light/fire (thus the halo was born).

These where Christian Mystics, just to clear it up an arguments.

As a story-based magician, I look to illusions to create a magical atmosphere for the story-telling. Think of it like you are Spielberg, but you are doing the effects live, not for film!

Rainmaker....ah....well you could illustrate many Biblical stories involving rain - Noah, etc.

Or to illustrate these scriptures:

Deut 32:2

My teaching will fall on you like rain; my speech will settle like dew. My words will fall like rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants.

and

2 Samuel 23:4

"he is like the light of the morning, like the sunrise bursting forth in a cloudless sky, like the refreshing rains that bring tender grass from the earth."

and
Psalm 143:6

"I reach out for you. I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain."

and
Prov 3:20

"By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the clouds poured down rain. "

and

Amos 5:8

"It is the LORD who created the stars, the Pleiades and Orion. It is he who turns darkness into morning and day into night. It is he who draws up water from the oceans and pours it down as rain on the land. The LORD is his name! "

and

Amos 9:6

"The upper stories of the LORD's home are in the heavens, while its foundation is on the earth. He draws up water from the oceans and pours it down as rain on the land. The LORD is his name! "


With maybe a small intro and simply reciting the scriptures as the effect happens sounds like an awesome routine!
