Every once in a while an effect comes along which is at once fascinating and disturbing. In performance, it instills surprise, wonder, and even a twinge of fear. Such is the gift of "The Shining"....
With "The Shining" in your repetoire, you will be able to perform a modern & ancient prediction effect which borders on miraculous.
Consider this description:
* performer removes from a case a face down deck of tarot cards.
* deck is turned face up and spread, showing the 56 assorted cards of the Minor Arcana.
cards consist of 4 suits (wands, cups, swords, pentacles) and 14 values (ace-ten, page, knight, queen, king)
* deck is handed to spectator, face down, who cuts cards several times
* deck is returned to performer, face down. deck is spread face down and spectator is asked to select a card but not to look at it. CARD IS PLACED FACE DOWN ON TABLE. NEITHER SPECTATOR NOR PERFORMER KNOW THE VALUE OF THE CARD.
* spectator is now asked to deal some cards into two piles, face down. the top card of each pile is turned over. (example: Knight of Wands, and Two of Pentacles)
* the performer now states that through "The Shining" that information gleaned from the two turned over cards will be used to determine the spectators selection.
* performer takes the value of the first card (i.e., Knight) and suit of the second card (i.e., Pentacles) and states that his prediction is THE KNIGHT OF PENTACLES
* only now does the spectator turn over their card.....and it is indeed THE KNIGHT OF PENTACLES!
