Magic Levitation – The Ultimate in Magic

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.
