Watch the performance now:
Everything went fine with the performance; I gathered my coin and as I stood back up Ted said to me, “That’s the most magical trick I’ve ever seen!” That must sound like I’m bragging but that really isn’t what makes the story interesting to me. The relationship between Ted and the Professor had been truly strained because of magic, so Ted had probably seen less magic than many of the members at the Magic Castle.
But for several years following that evening, whenever I would drop to the floor to perform this effect the Professor would make a point of saying, “You know my son Ted said that was the most magical trick he’s ever seen!” It’s probably been 20 years since I’ve heard him say it, but I can hear it in my mind like it was yesterday. So I tell this particular story because it’s hard for me to think much about Shadow Coins without hearing the Professor’s voice ringing inside my head, bringing back bittersweet memories.
Following the Performance and Explanation I feature an over-the-shoulder SuperPractice Session to make sure you understand ever move! Following this I then discuss the psychological aspect that many consider to be the Real Secret to what make magic so powerful.
