By the way - seemingly unrelated - for me Knepper stuff has always been hit and miss... But please, don't try to get me to buy that I have not enough knowledge to understand his stuff...

Having said that, do I think Kenton is an awesome thinker? YES.

And Nefesch? YES.

But then, MY WAY to move thru Mentalism is to ALWAYS appreciate anything that makes my brain-wheels spin, no matter if the thing I read is my cup of tea or not. FOR ME any idea from a colleague acts like a springboard to generate alternatives and / or add-ons.

This must be my lucky day, then... Nobody disagreeing with me... Oh wait! The day has not ended yet! Smile

Now, in the meantime Nefesch gave me a brief hint on what his "lift" is based on, and I can confirm that as soon as you lift the arm... you know what you need to know...

Too long Paolo, so good to see you back.

I don't know the Nefesh method but I have also something simlar.
I lift my leg, (often the right one) about the same lever to a balducci levitation then two solutions, we can hear a special noise or not (depends what I have eat) and I know in the second what the spectator is thinking of.

Wow, this really affected me deeply. It must have been mind control. I ALSO KNOW what those spectators must be thinking!!!
Will this be an eBook or DVD?

The perfect routine for Edh. I wonder if he contacted you to buy it.

Too late. I pre-ordered the effect. I wonder though, can I do this with my left leg?

Alright, again. I just wrote this whole text and then clicked on 'Submit Post' - without loggin myself in so it was lost again Smile. That's what happens to new members of the Café I guess ;D.

My name is Timon and I've been following the Café for a long while without being registered. If not recently two of my friends had asked me to post reviews of their material on here I probably still would be unregistered.
I am a Mindreader and Hypnotist and I'm a big fan of Purism. I am from Germany and curently I'm writing on a book on very pure Mentalism. I'll take the time later and introduce myself a bit longer Smile.

Here I'll write the review for Nefesch's LIFT though. Enjoy!

Nefesch today asked me on Skype if I'd like to see his new LIFT and review it. Of course I gladly agreed.
It is a technique that literally allows you to perform centre-tear-like effects while having your head turned away ( and your hands in full view ) by just lifting one hand. Nefesch performed the peak for me over Skype and I was stunned by its boldness and by how much sense the movement makes with the script. The participant won't get allerted at all by the movement ( lifting your hand ), especially not if you do it in other performances as well so it seems natural. The method reminds me of a bending-effect I've seen a while ago, maybe Nefesch got some inspiration from there.
Either way, it's easy to do and pretty angleproof ( 270* as Nefesch says ) and as I said the motion makes perfect sense. It is ungimmicked and impromptu, all you need is a stack of business card ( or even paper ) and a pen. No gimmicks or shiners. Everything you need to make this work you already have on you. The method also doesn't require any sleights so you can fully concentrate on the performance itself. The Clean-Up is..clean. There'll be nothing left and everything is examinable. You get the information even before the effect really starts, after he knows what the participant thinks off Nefesch just starts the show and does the revelation ( with style and with sense. Also, part of his revelation-method kinda takes care of the clean-up ).
Another great thing is that this isn't limited to only words or only pictures. The spectator can put anything that fits on the business card anywhere at all. You can find out whatever he wrote no matter on what part of the card he wrote it. It's very clean.

I didn't see the DVD ( Nefesch showed it to me over skype ) but Nefesch is a great teacher and you'll have no problems with learning it at all!
All in all this method is great if you get caught on-the-spot. Grab a few business cards ( yours or from wherever ) and a pen and perform!

This is my first review so it might be a bit chaotic, I hope it still helped you Smile.

Thoughtful Greetings,

Timon.

Nefesch skyped me to show me the technique. It is a great utility to use for other effects. It's bold and very easy to do. I got some business cards and tested this out right away. Everything happens in a natural action. LIFTing your hand.

It looks clean
It's simple
It's practical

I do however prefer Patrick Kuff's Bold Business. But it's great to know a myriad of techniques to catch people off guard.

I give this an 8/10.

It's not the holy grail but it is something that is worthwhile to any performer.

It is inspired on it, is an absolute different handling, procedure, etc and it removes all the restrictions of it.
