Pablo was kind enough to send me a link with his new effect, Fired Thoughts.

I think it's an interesting way of blending a very well known technique of mentalism with a nice gimmick I hadn't seen before - which also has a lot of uses in several effects.

I would try to describe the effect like this:


The performer talks about the ESP Symbols with his participant, explaining their meaning and importance to the world of real telepathy testing.

Now, he calls attention to a matchbox from where he draws out a match telling the spectator to choose one of the symbols mentally (of course, this is done by following a process).

Then, the match is lit and the spectator is asked to burn one and only one symbol in his mind, the one he chose a minute ago.

Surprisingly, the matchbox is opened and a prediction (burned in the sides) is finally shown... it's the exact choice of ESP symbol!


So this is what the effect is about in general terms.


There's a gimmick involved which I think is very practical, not only for this routine but a lot of current effects out there, I really can't say a lot more about it without disclosing its workings.

Anyway, for $5 you can't go wrong, the construction is well explained and I see myself using the concept as a nice icebreaker that involves ESP symbols.

Thank you for sharing your "Fired Thoughts", Pablo.

Undoubtedly from what I've read of Relick the effect seems fantastic, where I can see a video of it?

I recently received Fired Thoughts from Pablo. This is a nice bit of close-up theater, with the kind of subtleties and attention to detail we've come to expect from Mr. Amira.

As far as I can determine, the gimmick utilized is original and it definitely lends itself to many other possibilities. I think that the more people work with this, the more their own creativity will be stimulated and we'll see some interesting new applications.

Personally, I might have marketed FT as a utility device and included a couple of routines along with the excellent one already taught. Routines that like this one mesh method and plot in an equally seamless fashion. I think had Pablo done so FT would be getting more of the attention it deserves.

Review from Phil Reda

"Rating: 5 of 5 Stars!

This is a handy little tool or device that has many applications. What you will receive is a video instruction on how to make the device - takes about 10 minutest. Pablo also demonstrates a short routine using the device. Basically the effect demonstrated is one were a match box is shown - a match removed and lit. The spectator holds the matchbox and stares into the flame of the lit match and thinks of an ESP symbol. The matchbox is opened and a burnt piece of paper is inside with the spectators symbol.

I had to watch a couple of times and listen to audio portion closely to pick up some of the finer points of the presentation. I cannot say more or I would give away the method. There are several methods in play that cancel each other out. If you purchase this and have some Experience with the main technique described in the presentation - defiantly play back the audio and listen to the fine points it is easy to miss and not really explained In detail.

I am happy with the purchase and will have use for this little utility item "
