For those who love the propless side but are too nervous to miss, Seamus has developed a solid piece which will allow a guaranteed start to your name guess. Without exposing the other methods ( I have read them all - I think), Calibration has a very particular start. This is surefire.
If this goes wrong it's your fault here. I know Fraser and Ross kick some serious b&%t with theirs, I am not there yet. I think Calibration is in between a CT and Ouija.

Star signs, names, anything. This method has been explored but in a very limited context. This is now in the space of something massive and fantastic.

My walkaround performance has mostly only one prop and the rest is up to my suggestion skills. As much as I have followed the propless work out there, I cannot afford to break the spell. Calibration will now move me into a guaranteed start where I can go forward.

Seamus is a clever, ahem, guy.


Coming soon...

Thanks Machina, and yes, I'm a guy!!

This is a pretty exciting system that I know a lot of you will love. But don't be put off by the propless tag, it can be done as a proppy method too. In fact some of its most powerful applications use a few props. And by props I mean paper and pen.
This really has me excited.
More to follow,
Best,

Sounds nice!

Is it beginner friendly? In the sense that it could be used as a confidence builder that is surefire and does not require erm superb verbal presentation skills that are mandatory for an effect that employs a pr*******ve/Br****ing an***am? Assuming this effect doesn't use one as the method.

Thanks!

It does not use a ***** that you mentioned. It will be sure fire in limited word contexts ( star sign and what what) and site for in your first letter, occasional second letter and last letter.

Corinda's opinion on the magic square applies.

Thanks for the answers! I think Rock n roll approach is just what mentalism needs these days... Cheers!

Also, just to clarify, there are different versions of this, one of them can be used to divine any word, spectator has in their mind only!! Really!

I'm looking forward to this! Riven is a great piece of mentalism. I've been using it and getting great reactions.
This sounds beyond intriguing.

What's the advantage of Calibration over Ouija or Rose? This sounds very similar to both of them and I use both all the time. I am, however, always interested in new ideas with propless methods as I find the thinking behind them very interesting food for thought that can be used for other routines.

In Ouija your participant speaks and there is a v****l sleight. In Calibration you speak and know the exact letter.

Sea has quickly proved to be a creative powerhouse of solid, workable material. Mostly using nothing more than a standard post-it pad. I'm exited hear more about this in due course.

After changing scripting to suit my own performance model and needs, I took this out to play. IT IS WILD! Being able to divine names and words with nothing written down is exhilarating. In my humble opinion, the mind is calculating on the spot and I would think that this will look like a mind reading process, which essentially it is.

Sure you can center tear or you can just do it for real.
