Uri Geller Doesn’t Know if he Has a Bank Account!
I don’t know whether I’ve got a bank account, says Uri Geller.
His ability to bend spoons has seen him create a multi-million pound fortune.
But Uri Geller does not spend a penny of his wealth as he never carries cash or credit cards and does not know if he has a bank account or a pension.
The 68-year-old said he made a decision to shun all material matters and focus on his spirituality after fame and fortune drove him to illness many years ago.
Geller said: ‘I do not own a wallet. I do not carry any money or cards. My wife pays for my purchases in shops and my brother-inlaw deals with everything else. I don’t buy anything myself, on principle.
‘In the early 1970s, I was totally obsessed with fame and fortune and I couldn’t handle my success. I became bulimic. Then John Lennon directed me to Japan to find spirituality, and that changed my life. I detached myself totally from material stuff.
‘From that time, I’ve found systems and methods to make sure I don’t handle or deal with money myself. I don’t even know if I have a bank account — I’d have to ask my brother-in-law.
‘Probably my brother-in-law and my wife keep a Visa or an American Express. I don’t really know. I don’t interfere in the monetary system they operate. I leave it absolutely to 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.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
