One of the favourite tricks of master magicians is being able to control and stop their pulse. Most audiences consider this a most impressive feat of mind power. So, if you practice this well, you will create a fantastic reputation for yourself.
How It Looks To The Audience
The magician asks a spectator to place his hand on the magician’s wrist and feel his pulse. The magician tells him that through years of yoga training he is able to control his pulse rate. As the spectator measures his pulse, it begins to slow down and finally stop! Then the magician starts his pulse again.
How The Trick is Done
To perform this remarkable trick, you will need a small rubber ball, which you conceal under your armpit. It should be next to your bare skin. You will need to experiment with different sizes of balls until you find the one that is the right size for your body. Having placed the ball under your armpit, you are now ready to perform the trick.
Start by telling the spectator that by years of studying yoga and the mystic arts, you are able to use your mind to control your body. Ask him to feel your pulse with one hand and then hold up his other hand when he has found your pulse. Tell him to keep holding his hand up when he can feel your pulse and then lower it when he can no longer feel it.
As he is holding your wrist, slowly press your arm towards your body. This will cause the rubber ball in your armpit to slowly cut off the blood supply to your arm. Ask him if he can feel your pulse rate slowing. He will say he can. Remind him to lower his other hand when he feels it has stopped.
Keep increasing the pressure of your arm against your body until he can no longer feel your pulse. He will lower his arm to signify to everyone that this has happened. Having achieved the impossible, slowly release the pressure of your arm and allow the blood supply to start again.
The great thing about this trick is that your can roll your sleeves up or even wear a short-sleeved shirt while performing it. As the ball is concealed under your armpit, there is nothing for the spectators to see. This trick is a great reputation-maker.
