Psychokinetic Pendulum

by Mustafa
(India)


THE EFFECT: You ask a spectator to draw a straight line on a piece of paper roughly 6cm. You then tie a piece of thread to a ring (or small weight). You get your spectator to hang the ring above the paper and concentrate on the line.


After a short while the ring (or small weight) starts to move EXACTLY ALONG THE LINE ON THE PAPER! You change the direction of the line and the ring changes direction. A great impromptu effect with no preparation needed!


THE EFFECT: This trick is done without any gimmick and actually shows the unconscious mind at work. After having drawn the line place the pendulum above the paper roughly 2cm. Get your spectator to hold onto the pendulum and concentrate on the line. Doing this they are shutting off any stimulus and entering a semi hypnotic trance.


After a few seconds the ring will really move in the direction of the line. Some other patterns you can try on the paper is a circle or a cross. With the cross there are two lines concentrating on any one line the pendulum will move in that direction. Concentrating on the other line the pendulum will change direction! Try it, it's fun!


Your unconscious actually moves the pendulum, without you actively doing anything.


TIP: If after a small while the pendulum is not moving tell your spectator that the ring will start to move. This usually helps the effect along.

Freaking Works
by: Thomas

It works. I was freaked out. You just control it with your mind, no need to draw on paper, just think of a shape and a direction, and the hanging thing will swing along with what you draw in your mind.

by: Anonymous

Took off my wedding ring put through a small length of string held it over a line drawn on a post-it note and it swung in the direction of the line, turned the paper 90 degrees and the motion changed to match the line

However I just tried it and it worked for me! Very nice psychological illusion. Did it work for anyone else?
