Magic Levitation – The Ultimate in Magic
There are all kinds of magic tricks these days that are quite fascinating and amazing. You have your classic everyday card tricks, you have coin tricks, and magic tricks involving everyday objects. But there is one magic trick that blows all other magic tricks away, and that is the capability of being able to levitate some object into mid air.
Of all the magic tricks that I perform for people, when I can all of a sudden borrow a dollar bill from them and magically have it float under my command without any evidence of magnets or strings, and hand the dollar bill back to them, they are always blown away in astonishment. Magic levitation defies gravity and it messes with people’s minds because what they are seeing is something you would only see on television or in movies. But there they are, staring at this dollar bill, right in from of their eyes, magically floating up and down.
The best thing about performing magic levitation is doing it impromptu. This adds more to the effect as the spectator will believe more into your magical powers as the questions that they will have cannot be answered. And this is the beauty of being able just to walk up to anyone at anytime and levitate something. They will realize that there was no setup. It just happened, pure magic.
To top off all of magic levitation is the art of being able to levitate yourself into the air. This is ladies and gentlemen, the show stopper. To actually show somebody that you will levitate off the ground and float is one of the best reactions you will get from performing magic.
There are various guarded methods today that magicians use to pull off this effect. Some of them are better than others and have their advantages over one another also. The most commonly used levitation effect is the Balducci Levitation. It’s common because it is easy to perform and does provide a great illusion of floating. Another levitation effect used and has become popular is The King Rising. This routine is slightly different than the Balducci effect and can achieve more height off the ground in my opinion. But the latest levitation effect that has come out that really blows all levitations away is the Icarus Levitation. This levitation is truly mind boggling to see in person. It really is hands down the most visual levitation to date. If you really want to make some one faint, this effect will pretty much do it.
So if you really want to take your magic to another level, and I mean literally another level, you should invest your time and practice into magic levitation. In today’s world, it is getting harder and harder to shock people as people have seen everything done from watching TV or Movies. Our minds have been programmed to accept what we see for the most part, but the one thing that still will turn heads and make people think twice, is being able to levitate.
