Exploring the Subconcious Mind

Surfacing of the Subconscious Mind

have long been interested in the subconscious mind. Does it exist? Was it just an early reality but now is widely ignored. It’s hard to say. All I know though is that if I listen to my thoughts, I do seem to have at least two modes of consciousness going on. And if I pay close attention to what I am hearing, I become convinced that one of the train of thoughts is conscious while the other is subconscious, surfacing.

The Torture

It should be noted that the subconscious thoughts often seem to not relate to the conscious ones. Usually it is my negative mind putting myself down and having the desire for me to stagnate and be tortured.

Helpful?

Do I feel in conjunction with my dual thought process that there is any benefit? The one plus I suppose is potentially knowing what the thoughts are underneath the thoughts and the more I become conscious of the unconscious (if that’s what it is), I can then ask it to kindly leave. Does this really work? I’m not sure. Nor am I sure if on any level if knowing is helpful.

Up the Hypnotic Stairs or Down?

Top of the Staircase

As promised in the prior post of this blog, we were going to get into the story behind our magic eBook a bit more. As we told you last time, within 2 days our eBook was number 1 in the marketing hot list as well as had a number 1 rating for marketing author. It all seemed up from there, like we were truly climbing the stairs in the mental magic eBook world.

Something Unexpected

But then something happened. Something we hadn’t anticipated. And it changed everything. The “up” staircase started looking like a “down” staircase. Against our better judgement we pulled the eBook out of the marketplace.

Careful

It’s funny how when you attain something that was once a big wish, it’s not always what is was cracked up to be. So beware, what goes up must come down. Be careful what you wish for.

We Were Trying For “Shhh” and Got a Bit Too Freaky

It’s Time to Invent Mentalism

The skull person above is nothing compared to the image we had prior. Yes, we agree with your reaction. The vibe we were looking for is like the the old 1950’s and  1960’s “Ghost Show” feel which is a little campy and a bit kitsch. Instead we got something that many of you considered to be quite frightening. Can mentalism be scary? Sure. Is that our style? Not really.

Excited

Our eBook on magic of the mind was available, for a short period of time, at the largest seller of online downloadable magic/mentalism eBooks in the world. Why we pulled the publication is something we’ll get into a big more next time.

Back to the Board

Back to the drawing board that is.

Welcome to the Invent Mentalism Website

Reach for the Sky

“Invent Mentalism” is a website for USA HOW TO’s work in progress new eBook on mentalism. Welcome. As you can probably tell from the image we have chosen for this blog post, we are recommending that you reach for the sky when you are in the head space to invent mentalism.

It is Unique

Quite frankly, there’s nothing like our eBook “Invent Mentalism” out there. We have created something decidedly different that makes it extremely simple to become an “Invent Mentalism” kind of gal or guy.

When Will it Be Available to the Public?

But don’t just take our word for it. We recently gave 3 magicians the Invent Mentalism eBook asking them for authentic reactions to the text. 2 of the 3 have already responded within a few days and are very thumbs up about the publication. Of course, a question we are being asked is “When will it be available to the general public?” That’s a difficult inquiry to answer because quite frankly we do not know.

Thanks for Your Patience

We have submitted the most recent draft to our favorite publisher of magic books and thus far have had interest but no concrete response. One thing we were asked for was market research, hence getting the volume out to multiple conjurers. As mentioned we are still awaiting the last prestidigitation fellow giving us his review before we get in touch with the publisher again. We’ll give you the update as soon as we know what is going on. Thanks for your patience.
