Anyone who owns my card "SYMBOLISM" may be interested in this.

I had 3 or 4 people mention a concern regarding the revelation of the selected symbols...and I recently read a blurb on Jheff's website:

The way I address this concern (I have not addressed this concern in the original instructions, but will revise it) is as follows:

After the selection procedure, I patter to the group along the lines of:

"Keep your symbols locked in your minds...don't tell me what your symbol is or give me any fact...don't tell ANYONE what it is, it's YOUR symbol now, keep it in your head and don't share it with anyone."

This conditions the group not to discuss the symbols. This doesn't prevent the concern completely, but does reduce the risk significantly. To really eliminate the concern, after the reveal...congratulate the group on how well they "transmitted" their thoughts to you, and move on to another effect:

"WOW! You guys are great! Ann, I felt a really strong connection with you...let's try something else...."

Then, move right into another effect (ANIMANIA would be great at this point!)

PS: For those that don't own it, and read Jheff's comments, it is important to note that the selection procedure is very fair, and the spectators do have a free choice of symbols.
remember....always use your powers for good!
