Hello, I'd like to unveil a project I've been unhurriedly putting together for a while now: Mtangulizi (meaning The Predecessor in Swahili).
It’s an exploration of the art form we all know and love. To me it feels like looking back at the footprints I’ve left behind me as I ‘m navigating my voyage through magic and mentalism. In fact, two of the 1st mentalism/mental magic effects I ever created are in here.
It’s also a final farewell to the material shared in my previous ebooks (Psych 5, Precursor Notes) and several of those effects are updated here (It’s all reprinted and updated here).
We explore punchy, fun close-up mentalism ideal for the bar, open mic night acts through to suggestion, energy routines and even into the psycho-spiritual realm. I’ve written this so that it will stay forever in your collection and become a book you’ll keep pulling something new from.
We talk in-depth into new and different p**ks, sw*****s, t**rs and explore the 101 behind suggestion and pendulums
There is something in here for everyone – a novice who is starting out in mentalism to the advanced mentalist looking for routines, ideas, effects and inspiration.
The skeleton of the book is my earlier work: Psych 5, The Precursor Notes and Serial Flasher which have been expanded upon with the latest updates and working methods alongside additional handlings and contributions.
There is also plenty of new work in the book.
Amongst the new material in this book you'll read my guidelines to becoming confident and effective with Suggestion based effects and some recommendations for suggestion training wheels
BWTV – Selectively shared previously with Nothing to See Here purchasers – a mini act of about 10-15 minutes on the subject of positive and negative energies; using a stack of photographs, a pendulum and two small stones. It has moments of sensing energy, reading minds and participant as intuitive mind reader. Lots of audience participation and it’s versatile enough to be used in several different environments. Stage, Close-up, Walk-around.
If you are the kind of person who carries a pendulum around there is one phase(LIGHT AND DARK ) in this that I use ALL the time in casual pendulum performances to tremendous reactions and I even use it nstage to close the Power House Act from Nothing to See Here.
A-C B-T – An unconventional billet tear that is simple quick and will be tremendously useful if you are the kind of person who likes to include instructions on their billet wink wink.
I’m already hearing from a few readers that this unconventional tear is already being put to good use.
Perceptional Bender – Part of a larger routine to be revealed later, as it standards here it serves as a way of punctuating a conversation on the power of perception. A coin appears to bend and warp before someone’s eyes, but perception and perspective can be deceptive and the coin is revealed to be straight. One coin, anytime, anywhere obviously as long as you have coin.
A new close-up version of Kwatakye Atiko: - This looks flaming great! And the method of peeking the information is, I believe, totally unused and unheard of and I can’t wait to hear where others take this.
Campfire Kwatakye Atiko- If you ever perform outside around a campfire in the desert, mountains, beach or forest and are a great story teller then you’ll love this.
Lightwave Energy – A presentation and routine for CUBT (my simple business card peek) using a crystal pendulum and business cards.
On the subject of pendulums, for the uninitiated this book will get you started and addicted to pendulum work and within its page you’ll learn to use and develop your own routines with the pendulum.
I’ve included notes on performing in a bar environment and some devilish tools for those that do, which include further work and adaption of some TERASBOS type techniques.
We play with iphones, money, maths and cocktail sticks and learn p**ks, sw****s including an expansion on my CUBT and how to use it for drawing duplications, name revelations and with pendulums (LIGHTWAVE ENERGY) alongside multiple ways of presenting the drawing duplication and the reveal plus tips and touches for Sneak Thief and Graphology type effects. Anyone looking to perform a CMR drawing duplication will find my entry-level CMR D-dupe a great way to go about learning this.
On the Psycho-spiritual side, the expanded version of the Coin Oracle includes techniques and rituals for helping to create positive lasting change. I’ve included my pendulum pitch-book and some short notes on my BOR.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
If you're working behind the bar, open mic nights, nightclubs or doing on stage guest appearances, you will love and use this. Loosely - you guess peoples favourite drinks and finish with a kicker prediction - A drink a girl has been thinking of from the very start was secretly on display the entire time.
A psychology game with 5 business cards.
My multiple phased, business card routine. It allows for ample byplay, and a fun competitiveness and out guessing theme between you and the participant. Perhaps the coolest part about this is the psychology that allows you to do it "gimmick" free with near 100% accuracy. Although the 100% accurate version is thrown in. This is pure psychological fun.
The pendulum plays an important role in this book and it all starts here
