Effect: The performer introduces the subject of ‘auras’ or energy fields; which scientists now tell us surround every living entity. Many of today’s psychics claim that they can actually see these fields of energy; and that they have distinctive color-tones which vary from one individual to another. The performer expresses his own belief that such fields do exist, and that both men and women subconsciously select jewelry in the form of precious metals and gemstones to enhance and amplify the colors of their own personal auras.
The performer brings out a small plastic bag filled with a variety of colored crystalline beads. The beads are shaken and thoroughly mixed up inside the bag. A spectator is invited to dip their fingers inside the bag and remove a bead without looking at it. As they hold the bead in their closed fist, the performer is able to accurately identify the color of the bead by the influence it exerts over the spectator’s own personal aura, which the performer can sense by gazing into their eyes, touching their hand, etc.
