Thy Will Be DoneA demonstration of inexplicable cosmic prophecy contained within the esoteric imagery of a single tarot card.
(what does this mean?)
1. Self Working
Self working magic tricks are tricks that just work! They require no sleight of hand whatsoever. They are absolutely perfect for beginners. Desipite being super easy, we still recommend practising them in private first to perfect your patter and presentation.
2. Easy to Learn
These tricks are also beginner friendly, but there will most likely be a few sneaky (but fairly easy) moves to rehearse and remember before the trick is ready to be performed. Unlike self working tricks, these will require a little more confidence, but we believe in you!
3. Some Experience Necessary
Products in this category aren't difficult to do, but they will require some basic knowledge of the craft. If you know what a false cut is and can do a double lift, you've probably got what it takes to get value from these tricks. If you have no idea what any of that just meant, don't worry, you will after watching our beginners masterclass (coming soon).
4. Dedication Required
We always recommend practising your magic, even for self working tricks. But these tricks will require more than the average. Products that require some more advanced coin or card manipulations will probably fall into this category. Or tricks that need you to memorise a lot of information.
5. Serious Dedication Required
You're a serious magician if you're venturing into these realms. But it's true what they say; dicipline is rarely enjoyable but it is ALWAYS profitable. And boy, will you will reap the rewards. We salute you!
Mentalism doesn't pack much smaller than this! Carry it always in your wallet for a mystic miracle at a moment's notice with zero setup.
Thy Will Be Done requires no prior tarot knowledge, making it the perfect effect for both tarot virgins and seasoned tarot-workers alike.
The routine utilises three ubiquitous objects: a pen, a coin and a wristwatch. Each of these items can be borrowed from your participant.
Here's what happens:
You place a single tarot card (provided) face down on the table while explaining that the card depicts a reflection of the choices the participant is about to make.
The participant sets the watch to a random, unseen time and places it face down on the table alongside the pen and the coin.
While your eyes are closed and covered, the participant is invited to change the positions of all three objects until one is being held by the participant, one is being held by yourself and the remaining object is left on the table.
Their decisions seem so free and so fair.
Upon opening your eyes, you turn over the card that's been in view from the beginning to reveal the traditional "Magician" tarot card with an artistic twist.
To your participant's amazement, the card's imagery has accurately predicted the positions of all three objects.
To end with an added impossibility and ultimate kicker, you draw your participant's attention to the clock face printed on the card; It depicts the exact time the participant set the watch to at the beginning of the routine!
