Then there is another problem, that I think is very important to realise, and that is that everywhere in the world almost,where one has sensitives that are put in a public position, that is, they may be diviners, they may be seers, they maybe theatrical performers – but whenever an individual with particular powers is put into a conspicuous position, we have a tendency to find trickery also. Now this does not mean that the sensitive is only a trickster, but it does mean that sensitives are very doubtful of their own powers, of the reliability of their own powers.

For instance, Geller will not perform if he feels hostility from the audience. If he were a performer who was being paid, he might feel that he needed a few appurtenances (props) to make it work so this curious association between various forms of magicianship with sensitive behaviour occurs in many parts of the world. It doesn’t mean that the sensitive does not believe in his powers. It does mean he doesn’t trust them very thoroughly, and he feels that certain conditions could disrupt them.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
