Quote of the Week: Theo Annemann

Powerful words from our grandfather Theo Annemann, from Practical Mental Effects (that you can read for FREE in HERE) , words that still hold great truth, as far as my own experience in Mentalism today.

An interesting question, from all this is: 

What is the difference in, an emotional sense, 
between Magic and Mentalism? 

Magic and Mentalism have a lot in common, no doubt, but Theo in here is giving us the insight that there are also clear differences that allow audiences to understand the difference of a magical moment and a mental mystery. The outer explosion of astonishment and the inner implosion of uncertainty.

Mentalism has a fascinating potential of being an experiential metaphor of deep mental realities and principles. We can summarize the power of our mind to connect with others using a simple and direct telepathic experience, or adding a beautiful moment of playful interaction (performing a prediction piece) that communicates the power of influence and subtle suggestion.

Mentalism is a powerful practice not just in the way of performance, but also as a huge hobby, practice and discipline that opens for your a new space of self-knowledge and potential.
Mentalism can be a 2nd profession, a new source of income, the artistic excuse to connect with potential readings, and much more!

Magic is beautiful and it is a powerful artform, but Mentalism has this unique sense, flavor and impact that makes it an art that demands compromise and deep study.
