I just thought I'd let everyone know about the latest effect from one of our very own, Café member Nathaniel. It also features notes and ideas from Andrew Gerard and Dr.Bill.

It's a top effect, plays well and I've tried it out twice so far and got some prety good reactions. Check it here:

I can't wait to see some reviews roll in.

:) You know when I was in LA last year everyone kept asking me if I was Australian, apparently they can't tell the difference between English and Australisn accents.

Nathaniel has certainly come up with a winning routine here. Although I had a small part in helping this effect come to reality, my unbiased opinion is that this routine plays very strongly, is easy to do, and has all the right elements for powerful mentalism -- It's personal for the participants, seamless in its methodology, and provides an abiding mystery that people will talk about later.

the Effect: Five business cards or blank cards are shown. On four of the cards an emotion is written, ie: Love on one card, Fear on another, Joy on a third, and Envy on the fourth. On the fifth card a large "X" is drawn. The cards are then turned with the writing sides down, and are mixed by a spectator.

An audience participant is chosen, and is asked to "hunt" for the various emotions by using their own emotional memories. They are to think of a time in their life when they experienced Joy, for instance. They then pass their hand over the cards until they feel a certain card has a connection to the Joy that they are remembering. They lay their hand on that card. The performer marks the back of that card with the word "Joy". This is continued with the other three emotions, with the performer's admonition to always avoid the "X" card.

At the end, very cleanly, it is shown that the card never touched by the participant is the "X" card. When all of the other cards are turned over, the emotions predicted by the participant match up with the emotions written on the opposite side of the card. All very clean, with the participant doing much of the handling.

While this might not play easily in a noisy pub or at a busy family restaurant, for occasions when you have focused, quiet conditions this routine will create a lasting impression.
Well done, Nathaniel.

I agree wholeheartedly with entity about this being a strong routine. For years I have performed a similar routine by our good friend, Jon Riggs, called "They, hell, fire!" and, when the timing is right, this hits people at an emotional level.

Reading through Nathaniel's routine, I see the similarities, but the handling is quite different. I really like the idea of infusing the cards with emotional energy. Very nice touch.

Overall, this is a well thought out routine that packs small but can hit like a wayward dump-truck full of dynamite in the right situations. Using this routine sparingly and wisely will yield you and your participants some long-lasting results. After all, isn't that what it's really all about?

I too am a HUGE fan of Riggs' "They Hell Fire" and its assorted variations. So my question, for Rob or anyone else who has both effects, is: Is there any particular advantage that this handling offers over Riggs'? (Feel free to PM me if necessary.)
Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

I think that "They Hell Fire!" is a hugely underrated routine because of its simplicity, but I digress from this thread's topic.

Joshua,
I will go back through the "Emotional Imprints" routine again with your inquiry in mind and PM you my thoughts.

Hello,

I´am the creator of Emotional Imprints.
First, thanks to all the helping hands along the way!
And thanks for the kind words about Emotional Imprints.

This is something I perform for years and get strong reactions with.
I can only agree with the comment made above by r1z08,
"to use this routine sparingly and wisely"!

I have had people that cried because they were so touched and emotional, overwhelmed with feelings from the past. And people that laughed from heart and couldn't stop.

I really hope this beautiful routine finds a place in many repertoires.


Any questions, suggestions, problems, feedback or if you are bored? ;-) please email me at:

mind-at-work@gmx.de




Best,
Nathaniel

When Nathaniel sent me Emotional Imprints to look over, I was immediately taken by the premise. It is classic, powerful mentalism. Handled correctly, it has the potential to have an extremely strong effect on the participant while drawing in the rest of the audience in anticipation and ultimately amazement.

Emotional Imprints has a premise that fulfulls one of my all time favorite quotes in mentalism; "Meaning is the best misdirection." (Kenton Knepper). But it is more than that in that the premise offered by Nathaniel is simply intriguing to human beings as proven by its use for centuries in fiction and folk lore.

Also, this is the kind of effect I like where many people simply believe the premise is the explanation for the effect so don't even bother trying to reverse engineer it. Given this, you may not evoke applause but stunned silence or the emotional responses Nathaniel describes.

Another factor not yet mentioned is that the method, besides being easy, is so flexible that you can apply it to an unlimited number of themes. Even comedy.

But I prefer the feelings presentation as first described in Emotional Imprints. This is my kind of mentalism and that is why contributed some different twists and ideas to make it even more fluid and convincing. I also really like the name.

It reads so much like 'They Hell fire' that I don't see any advantage of buying this.

Unless someone can change my thinking.
