## How To Perform The Find The Card Trick

In this video you'll learn how to read a person´s mind with a simple trick.

Hi! I'm Julian and I will teach you how to read people's minds with a simple magic trick. So let's go. Now for you to be able to read people's minds you will need twenty one different cards. Now that you have them, you'll ask the spectator to shuffle the cards the way they like. They shuffle and they give you back the cards. You take them, face down in your hand, and you are going to put them on the table, cards face up- this way. From left to right one, two, three, - one, two, three,- one, two three,- and you keep on doing it. Now you will have three columns of seven cards each one. Now you ask the spectator to think, only think, they don't have to write or to say anything, they only have to think of a card. For example, let's say the spectator choose the ten of hearts. And now you ask the spectator where their card is, you say "Is your card in the first, the second or the third column?" The spectator will say that it's on the second column. So you take it in the same order that is, don't mix up, and you put it in the middle of the other two columns. You take the other columns, in the same order, you put in the middle.Like a sandwich.

### Step 2: The method:

Now you turn the backs face down on your hand and you're going to put the cards on the table in the same way we do it last time. Now you ask again the question "where your card is" in the first, the second or the third column. Now they say their card in on the first column. You take it and put it again in the middle. You take the cards and again you're going to do the same thing. Now the spectator is the only one who know where the card is, but in a moment you don't know where card is. Now you will know because I will explain to you how to do the trick, but in the case you are doing to the spectator you will only know the card only at the end.

### Step 3: Picking the correct card:

Now they say " it's on the second column." You take it put it in the middle, but this time you are going to do the same, but this time the cards are going to be face down. Now for mathematical, physical and sociological causes the cards are always in the middle of these packings. Now the middle of these columns is this column, and the middle of this column is this card. The card will always be here.

So you know that you don't know the card but you know where the card is. Always it's going to be here. I don't know why but always, always, it works

### Step 4: Extra showmanship:

Now for example you can re-deal the cards in the way. For example, you say " I don't think your card is on this pack". Or " I don't think your card is on this pack, is it?" And they say "No my card isn't in here." "I don't think your card even is on this cards." And you say "What was your card?" you ask him, and he says " My card was the ten of hearts." Then you reveal, and you ask that not only you can read her mind but you can guess where the card was in there face down cards.
