Topic: Docc Hilford - Echo & Baillie Addendum?
Message: Posted by: Daniel Meadows (Mar 19, 2014 03:08PM)
Anyone on the mailing list that has taken the plunge with this?
I can't make the call tonight so if anyone does please report back.

Blurb:
Imagine you're at a dinner or cocktail party of say, under twenty people.
You think to yourself, "If I had some really amazing mentalism with which I could floor everyone here, I could make a reputation with some important contacts."

You know how to do lots of mentalism tricks, but you know if you had a routine - one that didn't need any special props - a routine that demonstrated what appeared to be exceptional psychic powers, then you would be set.

You day dream about having ANYONE think of ANYTHING - a word, number, name or a drawing.
You imagine the subject writes it on a piece of paper, seals it up with tape or staples and hides it ANYWHERE in the room.
Even better, he does so while you're out of the room under guard.
And the hiding place is suggested by other people in the room, so NO ONE could have possibly known it previously or forced it.

You see yourself returning to the room, choosing a subject at random and performing one of the greatest demonstrations of mind reading in history - HELLSTROMISM. Also know as, Contact Mind Reading.
WITHOUT FAIL you lead the subject to the hidden packet.
The guests are dumbfounded, but you continue by divining what the test information was.

You reproduce the exact drawing!

But in your mind you want to REALLY floor everyone, so you imagine the dinner guests secretly selecting ANYONE at random.
Having NEVER MET THE SUBJECT BEFORE, and with your extraordinary psychic abilities...
You Discern the subject's gender.
Reveal their initials.
Give details about where they live,
what they do for a living,
their hobbies,
and even a recent tragedy in their life!
Finally, you approach the subject and call her by name!

Of course, because this is a day dream you insist this must all be done...
one-man
without the internet
and no special props.
May some paper, pens and envelopes - all borrowed.

And since the subject was chosen at random WHILE YOU WERE OUT OF THE ROOM,
you COULDN"T PRESHOW HER!

As unbelievable as this sounds - IT'S EXACTLY the routine of THE BAILLIE ADDENDUM.

Thanks for starting this thread, Daniel. I also found this package intriguing and also wondered if anyone had taken the gamble yet and could give us more cautious folk some insight.

If you are sitting on the fence and didn't make the call the other night you can find the recording of most of the Preview call over at the website:

http://www.DoccHilfordProducts.com/

Should be right up near the top of the page. I say most of the call as after Docc left we got into a pretty detailed side discussion on how you could branch off from ECHO and Baillie and head in many different directions. Some personal things were shared and we decided not to include that part of the recording. All of main call with Docc is there. What you have with ECHO is really a small act that you can use as little or as much of as you want. It really is that nice.

On the call you will hear some of the inspirational sources Docc used over the years as he built this up. We talked about Helstromism, Ron Baillie, George Armstrong, George Anderson, Orville Meyer, Psychometry, Cold Reading vs Real Reading, Quotable Quotes, Strip Clubs, Doc Nixon, Spiritualism, Passports, and more. You can see we covered a lot of ground. That tends to happen on some of the calls. So go get it - it is free. If you purchased ECHO it is in your Member Area already.

I personally use portions of ECHO all the time. Easier to look at it as a toolbox you can pull from to enhance what you already do. Or if you need a routine start with this one and see which aspects appeal to you. Then jump off from there and build it up.

Hope some thing there was useful for you.

Docc Hilford material = Gold. Dust.

If it has Hilford, Cassidy or Banachek on it ... you don't even need to think about it. Just click buy.

These guys are the masters.
