Topic: Jerome Finley's The Velvet Expanse
Message: Posted by: Scott M (Feb 11, 2014 02:29PM)
Looking over this manuscript leads me right where many of Jerome's takes me to for how I incorporate his work not only for what performing I do but in areas of suggestion, persuasion and overall life enhancing skills.

For one to learn the skills in Suggestion I can't think of better material out there in building a MINDSET that in infused into your being for leading others with whatever material you want to present. I personally incorporate many of these skills in my current business more so than performing.

While I am short on time, I wanted to start a post of discussion on TVE and build on Jeromes work from the past that leads one to this current work. If you do not have Psycho Spiritual Mentalism (PSM) you can order that manuscript now and get this for FREE as it was promised and delivered on by Jerome a while ago...yes awhile ago but it is DONE and delivered. I get nothing for doing this, and posting in the Café for me has reduced, but my appreciation for Mr. Finley's work lingers on because it is a refinement of the best there is out there and condensed in his work to perfection with examples of how HE uses it and is something I can translate into how I want to work it.

I have been teaching and doing some travel and his Circle Reading is something I take to others and call it The Passion Circle.

An extension of Crimson Wall is right on track for pacing and leading others with this MINDSET and transferring it over to others is the power of suggestion at its finest.

For now,
Scott M

Early reviews and praise for "The Velvet Expanse" are starting to pour in...ENJOY!

"Jerome Finley's latest, The Velvet Expanse, is an astonishing work from one of the finest minds in mentalism and a guided journey, as the author so aptly puts it, into the "psychic wilderness." This is high-impact, mind-expanding material, and a must read for any mentalist, hypnotist or psychic entertainer who wants to take his or her act to a higher level and/or in a different direction. Every item in Mr. Finley's new book comes directly from his working repertoire, and while I've only had the opportunity to read The Velvet Expanse once so far, I've already found over half a dozen pieces that I can't wait to put into play right away. In addition to all the incredible routines, effects and ideas here, Mr. Finley also shares his truly fascinating perspectives on health, wealth and emotional well being; I, for one, found this section alone to be worth several times the cost of The Velvet Expanse.

I can't recommend this highly enough --- period.

And another...

"Well mate you've done it again... f#ck!ng awesome stuff! Life altering... LITERALLY!!

The section that talks about the power of placebo and nocebo is something that anyone who wants to help and deeply affect others positively (though of course can also be used to do the opposite) should read and really take on board, once you understand what's within you have a LOT of power at your hands to greatly alter others (in a good way of course haha).

I've seen first hand just how effective this can be thanks to your material.

The UKRAM random # generator is such a simple idea! I don't use playing cards anymore but that is friggin great.

The section on applied kinesiology/muscle testing is really all you'd ever need to know on the subject to get results and make use of the techniques in whatever way you wish.
Even though you mention and recommend AK throughout your works I've never really actually made use of it, not sure why but after reading through it in here I'm gonna go back and work on it so I can add it to my toolkit.

I've been eliciting criteria ever since learning about it from your work, anyone who has your stuff and doesn't make use of such things are seriously missing out and working at a huge disadvantage.

The whole last section of the manuscript "Jerome's Spectrum of Awareness"is pretty much the S#it haha! as I said within my first line in this email... LIFE ALTERING!!

Fantastic stuff :)

Man I literally am only missing a few pieces of your work, but your material IS the best out there bar none from both a performance standpoint AND from a lifestyle standpoint."

Here's one from Luke Jermay that just came in...

"Jerome has set a rich tradition of continually providing information of progressive complexity and importance. His latest offering does not break with this personal tradition. At times this work is reminiscent of the ancient philosophers who; like Jerome carried a burning desire to share their worldview; many suspected Jerome had the hidden tools to bring about revolution. Here these tools cease to be hidden but are made visible and clear to those who will take the effort and dedication required to receive the signal. Each reader will discover their own message; whatever he or she needs to find will be revealed. Prepare yourself for something new, worldview expanding and dare I say it; revolutionary." - Luke Jermay

And some great thoughts and praise here by our own Dale H.,

"Most magic books teach you tricks. Some teach you psychic entertainment. Few, all too few, teach you a lifestyle. I cannot imagine anyone not being touched in their lives after reading 'The Velvet Expanse' by Jerome Finley. This is a life-changing and game-changing manuscript. Be careful with this information or else you'll end up healthier, wiser, and more well-rounded before you even realize it."--Dale A. Hildebrandt

Thank you ALL so much!!!

Thanks again, everyone!

I just finished to read VE, as always we have here powerful work,delivered by Jerome with a great writing style. Reading this book, I find in Jerome a "new light" and incredible positive energy that comes from each word in this book.
Pieces as the Crimson Wall Expanded and the Placebo Effect, can be easly incorporated in any performance, in order to enhance your act at new levels.
I find the Blueprint (Spectrum Awareness) is an incredible personal tool, something to be read over and over (well, the trinity system too is something that can be really useful!).
Sometimes we forget that other that tricks, we need to be able to believe in what we deliver to the audience as Jerome says "...is all about confidence" and this book is what will teach you about...

This was just sent to me from the magnificent Neal Scryer:

"I only give one quote as everyone else gives one also. But for the first time ever in mentalism history that I'm aware of, I'd like to give this book even more praise and a second testimonial from me. We can all agree that Jerome's work is worthy of it so I have decided to add another thought to his already glowing reviews. Upon reading and re-reading "The Velvet Expanse" I honestly feel this book is too good to be out there; it's worth a hundred times the asking price and if I had it my way, this would be taken off the market immediately. It's THAT good!" - Neal Scryer

I'm honored and blushing, Neal. Thank you!!!

This book is not for the faint of heart.

This book is for those with strong hearts filled with compassion and those masters of illusion who wish to appear compassionate. Those who can stare into a broken mirror and reflect on the multiplicity of Being. Side effects may include never again meeting a stranger, as all people quickly open to you as an old friend thankful to be reunited and once again understood.

Seriously, I wanted to write a great review for this book as it brought so many of my own private thoughts and philosophies into alignment, yet I can't review it in a typical format. This is not a typical book of mentalism. This is one of those books that has to be understood and planted deep within your soul/spirit (your mental construct may vary(my soul goes on ebay whenever the rents due)) and shared with every person you desire to form a connection with. Which I would hope is all persons otherwise whats the point.

Jerome is building a bridge with his works. If you have a heartfelt love of the metaphysical, occult, and esoteric arts as well as the performing arts of magic and mentalism then welcome to the crossroads. This is where The All combines and coalesces into a new breed of Shaman, Mystic, Witch, Sorcerer, Cunning Folk...you get the drift. Lets adapt and evolve. Cheers to the Old Ways becoming new again.

This just in from the one and only Mota who gave me permission to post a review here in his absence:

"I have been reading Jerome's "Velvet Expanse" and thinking. There are many facets to this work but perhaps I can best describe what hit me strongest with a bit of a story.

I recently went to a tarot meet-up. It was to be group readings and there were two readers that would be attending that are well-known names in the tarot world. Real stars. I wanted to hear them read.

They did not disappoint. The man was quiet and sat back calmly. When he spoke the room got quiet. He didn't say much but when he did every word seemed important.

The woman also impressed. What was so interesting about here reading was it followed an almost identical reading. Someone had asked a business question and another reader answered it. Then the star got up and said, "Like this person said..." and was off...with essentially the same reading. While the previous reader got a thank-you, the identical reading coming from the star resulted in fawning and enthusiastic agreement.

Neither star had any unique interpretations of the tarot cards. What they did have was a presence, an energy. This is an energy I have seen in some meditators and some yoga practitioners. It is a quiet, calm but present awareness that others can sense.

While there are certainly many paths to this presence what hit me about "The Velvet Expanse" is it offers a solid path for many people. It is a how-to for releasing your own inner energy.

Being a star reader isn't from a new way of readings, or some great hit. It is an internal energy that others can feel and want to be around. That energy is quite a nice way to live a life too.

I would think you would need to be pretty serious about your work in this field to get value from this work. However if you are that serious one, the one that wants to test your limits, this work offers you a path. It isn't an easy path. I guess to some extent the journey is part of the process. It is, however, a path accessible to all.

There are many different thoughts expressed in this work but I think the most important concepts are the ones that will affect you internally and change your energy and your outlook on life.

Others will sense it and want to be around you.

You will see it when you look in the mirror." - Mota
