Sounds too good, to be true? After many years, the search has come to an end ...

Effect:
You tell the spectator about a special field of energie that is surrounding everybody. Each memory and experience of our lives is saved in this field, named aura. When you are connecting each others aura and therefore, you are able to tell the spectator specific information you couldn't possibly know. You`ll go through a special set up process, where your spectator has to imagine different things (approx.. 2 min), from which you save two more information in his aura. [These informations are strictly private for the spectator. This part is fun and he`s learning something about his life and it is capsuled verbally so that it doesn't count to the effect, just in case you are concerning about the duration of the effect.] Afterwards you start to reveal the DOB (you need a star sign divination method that is not included). The process is so streamlined that it could be finished within 4 minutes. Afterwards, the connection is so stable (by proof of divining the DOB of the spectator), you both travel in his mind to a place, which the spectator is only thinking of (with some special restrictions). The travelling process has a duration about approx. 1 min. Now the mentalist describes exactly what the spectator sees and finally reveals a special point of interest in the landscape surrounding this place (duration depends on how long you would like to stretch the presentation).

Be aware:
This effect won`t fool you, it's designed to fool laypeople. So you have to see through their eyes and to be open minded and you`ll see that the effect can work pretty good with you, as a knowing person in the field, too. Do the best to think the way, a layperson is thinking and everything will go smooth. If you aren`t able to do this, you will experience all the outs and safety nets (some are new, some are well-known) to cover this perfectly.

Special Offer:
I`ll show this effect at the Blackpool magic convention for people that are interested. The only requirement is, that you agree to be filmed during the effect and give a bit of feedback to the camera. If you see someone wearing this jacket, then you are welcome to ask me for a demonstration of AURA!.

Included:
- Different versions (beside the described version), there is a failsafe stage version, where you`re able to reveal the DOB for one person plus any information of your choice for another person on stage (with a principle that doesn't come from me but that is widely well-known). Following my feelings, this is the strongest version of it all and you can include parts of it in the 1:1 situation, where it can be used to reduce the process of the routine.
- Philosophical essays that can be used as presentational plots, too.
Important/not included:
- Technique to deduct a starsign by the process of Ps*w*e by Matt Mello or an a*gr*m of your choice
- The technique is very versatile (as you can see based on the different versions, which are included in this book) and isn`t tied strictly to the plot of the shared aura, so you are able to show this effect with other plots, too.
- It can be nicely done over Skype. I've already done it via phone but I wouldn't recommend it, because of the visual feedback you get from the spectator.
- It feels like real mind reading and, most of the time, you are really doing what you pretend to do.
- The DOB process has some similarities to Isabella Star(as propless as Isa Star 3, but more streamlined).
- There are language restrictions (English Version and German Version included)
- There are also regional restrictions for the place divinations (you have to build your own version)
- The person has to be focussed and be able to follow your instructions, it's not an effect for a noisy environment, like a bar.
- First reviewers stated, that it's a hard read because I'm not a native speaker, but I'll organize a facebook group to answer all of your questions.
Next steps:
- After Blackpool I'll know if I publish it myself or found a partner.
- You can already show your interest in filling out the formular at www.magieraurel.de and set the subject to : AURA!

Marc, your site is in German and it's not apparent (to me, at least) how to set the subject of the "formular" to Aura. Honestly, I don't even know what a formular is...

Aurel, it’s an impressive statement but with one post, you may need to build credibility on the Café before launching a product. That being said, welcome aboard Fellow magi.

Hello MagicBrent,
you're absolutely right, it really sounds to good to be true. Of course, there are limitations and restrictions as there is process. In my point of view the process is logical and streamlined, more of that also is fun for the spectator. He 'll never know where you are aiming for until you have all the infomrmation deducted that you need to hit the DOB.

Of course, the smallest bit is completely new as we are sitting on the shoulder of giants. There are new sprinklings and new outs that make sense for that plot. Also very honestly it seems to be a hard read and I will answer all of the open points in a facebook group.

Maybe I am currently in a reality tunnel (as a hypnotist would say) but I'm hitting with this propless the DOB all of the time. Maybe I overlook currently something but for me it is a holy grail. It's mechanical so if the speactator or you cause of missing concentration don't make a mistake, it is failsafe (concerning DOB).

I really like some of the restrictions:
- Because you are really doing most of the time what you are pretending, there is not much to hide.
- That's why it feels like real mindreading.
- If the spectator would find out how it is done, he'll still be impressed how a human being can do that.

Hello Jonathan1000,
no prob. Just have a look for that jacket which I'm wearing on Saturday.
I'd like to have this formula on my German Site for the future if anyone is interested in purchasing the booklet. Until now I received a lot of messages on my page and I'll contact you this Friday afternoon when I arrive at the convention. Hope tomake it until the Marc Spellman lecture...

So thrilled to see you there and to show you my findings...


A lot of messages arrived me privately and I answer it here for everybody. The method is mechanicely, what does it mean?

It's the version that's described in the book as the stage version:

1. In the majority of cases you need four information to hit the DOB, in some cases three and in just a few only two information!

2. The first information is always the same and you learn it before the effect starts. It's hidden in a selection process and the plot to find the right person to connect to. At that point you learn so much that you are "Two ahead propless". Here you re doing what you pretend to do. What is the best you can do to connect to somebody? You have to search for a similarity (the technique is not mine and not included, but some of you will know it. If not, then it will be your best purchase after Train Tracking).

3. After finding the right person you immediately start to reveal the DOB. While doing that you learn with techniques already well-known two more information.

4. This last bit is my finding. You can ask for that information directly or hide it in a process. The scenery I chose for that already looked so beautiful on stage that I already used without combining it with learning an information.

I would even state that this propless approach is superior versus classical techniques in this special case. To learn so much information all the people would have to fill out a lot of b**le*s...

One day left and then I hope the first reviews will fly in here...
See you in Blackpool!

First to say, Marc is good friend of mine and he asked me to sum my thoughts up for his first creation: AURA!
Let`s point out my personal view on propless DOB divinations from the past. Whenever it came to propless DOB, I found the working principles to be more interesting than they routine the were used for. There were just too much calculations going on which had to be made by the participant and in the end one of the most emotional dates for a human being (their birthday) had the slightly strange taste of a clever math trick. What Marc did, is an important step in die evolution of DOB: He moved away from the calculations as a single devination method and translated it into a clever, mutiple layered system. When Marc performed both versions for me over the phone(!) (with different benefits for the performer AND the participant) half of the system flew right under my radar! But wait, there is more: The presentation is constructed to be a self reflecting experience in which the participant is going to discover interesting things about his personality and in the same moment, he tells you everything you need to know to devine his birthday! I know Marc for some years now and the intruductionary story of this routine is the the essence of his life so far. Personal, hart hitting and with the most interesting experience for your participant in mind, this will be the first propless DOB devination I want to test in the real world!

Is it adaptable to any language?

Hi MagicMax20,

which Language are you thinking of? Cause I don‘t know each language I can‘t confirm here in general. For the DOB only the first part is language restrictive. And I translated this Part for myself into German in 30 min.

I am French so I was wondering if it would be easy to adapt. As you said that you have translated it into German, I think it would also be doable in French.

I just witnesed performance of Aura. And what can I say.....IT BLEW MY MIND!
I was so shocked ( in a positive way ) how Marc could possibly now my DOB.
It really felt like a deep connection. I was and still be absolutly delited.
My advise is that you „feel“ it yourself and Blackpool Magic Convention.
In opinionit is a genius act of mentlism

We´ve just finished the trailer for the incredible Aura Mystery. Please take a look and spread the word

I‘m sorry I couldn‘t answer all of your question personally at the convention. There was such a high interest in AURA. I had to leave earlier cause of flight issues from flybe. I don‘t already know how I come back to Germany but I m heading to the airport to see what do to after the bankruptcy of flybe.
If there are questions left. I think we got amazing reactions and just to tease something. There will be another clip with a huge legend you re all familiar with. Stay tuned...

Hello friends,

I got the chance to experience this routine. Aurel performed it for me. I also had the opportunity to read the book. Here are my thoughts:
AURA! combines a lot of already known principles, that most of you already know, BUT in combines them in a new, streamlined and beautiful justified way. Aurel did the thing we should do with all those nice methods out there, he thought about how they fit together and to build a nice justification and script around it. He created something special, which I think not everyone will apreciate when they read it, but if you do, you understood a big part of what mentalism is about.

He offers multiple variations, I didn't decide yet which of those I like the most.

I arrived safely back in Germany. As I mentioned above most of the methods you already know, but there are certain new and fresh elements inside:
- some subleties/sprinklings
- some Outs/ reframes
- everything has a safety net (so if something would go wrong, it would not feel like you failed)
- the plot and justifications
- some presentational angles like the "vertical world view"
- some enhancements from already known methods (50% more efficient)

Coming soon is a second trailer with a well known mentalist and legend in our field. Please keep in mind:
1. I'm not a native speaker and my English is horrible.
2. AURA! as 1:1 is the weakest version of all, as parlour or stage it's much better.
3. With AURA! on stage you can reveal the DOB of a person and any other information of your choice in 6-7 min.

This is the performance of AURA! to Peter Turner at Blackpool convention.
I decided in contrast to the teaser with Michael Murray to show you as much of the process as I could.
There are just two crucial parts missing.

I'm quite interested in your opinion?

This looks very interesting but I’d be interested in knowing the difference between IS3 and this.

Hi,

Will this work in Spanish?

If so, where can I purchase this, or when is it out?

Hey MitchellK,
let me check first Isabella Star 3 in detail again and I'll get back to you.

Hey Alex,
1. Only the first bit is language restrictive and uses a technique that's not mine. It's from Matt Mello and is definitely highly superior than an anagram in my opinion and that effect. I build it in German in 30 minutes.
2. The booklet is ready but got the feedback that not everything is comprehensible. So maybe I have to work it over. I'm in discussion what's the best way to publish it. When I have more official info, I will post it here. I have a release date in mind but also depends if I add a video project to it or not. When I know more, I'll get back to you.

Maybe he just hasn’t been on the Café because he is working on the book? ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Hello altogether,

First of all, sorry for responding so late. I didn’t check my PMs and please just write here or send me an email.

I‘m still in discussion with a well known guy in the field to publish it. He ll do all the management because I m not that experienced but he has to finish some old projects first. In the meantime I m really thinking about adding a video project to the book. So please be patient. Maybe there will be a new review soon but to be very honest, the release date of the complete package could last a bit. I ll keep you updated...
