A peek inside the mind of a mind reader: Renowned mentalist Nicolai Friedrich decodes it all


All humans have the power to alter their perspective and in layman’s terms this is somewhat like a glass half full-half empty scenario. Nicolai Friedrich is all set to perform at Orana Conventions, Gurugram on November 26 but this isn’t his first show in India. “Once in Africa the audience thought I might be the devil. “A mentalist will not ask you to pick a card but just to think of one,” Nicolai puts it out simply. In an interview with the indianexpress.com, Nicolai explained that a mentalist and a magician are actually not the same thing. “It has nothing to do with supernatural powers,” he says. With these methods, he can hack people’s minds and apparently read their thoughts or even influence them,” Nicolai explains. But then they understood I’m just the guy next door.” The audience just wants to get amazed and it is the suspension of belief that makes them want to be blown away by his tricks on stage. It’s not as easy as it looks on the stage,” and believably so. He has the ability to read minds, influence people and even make predictions about them. Nicolai believes that “reality has lot to do with your mind set” and he even uses it for himself at times. Nicolai also elaborated that these psychological tricks can be used in our daily lives as well, not just on the stage. While a magician relies on magical principles, a mentalist uses his tricks differently. He shares that once in Africa, the audience thought he was the devil. After all, they have the power to see through people, alter their perception of reality and make predictions sometimes. An artist of this stature, who has performed all around the world, has had some really dramatic reactions from his audience. So how does he really deal with that? He was only four when he first saw a magic trick and it completely amazed him. Mentalist Nicolai Friedrich is a world-renowned mind reader whose illusions have enamored and mesmerised the audience across different cultures and countries. He has performed for an Indian audience before and really enjoyed the experience. Mentalists are intriguing for their audience and in trying to decode their tricks, they usually end up being enamoured by them, and that is what Nicolai tries to achieve. Nicolai Friedrich was enamoured by the world of magicians from a very young age. But as soon as a magician starts his performance, the skeptics in the crowd put on thick glasses to find loopholes in his act. Nicolai credits this form as a science but he still hopes that miracles exist. “I like the spirituality and open minded of my audience in India,” he shares. But even then “they can’t look into your head and tell about you (laughs). Apart from the skeptics, there are many who believe that illusionists and magicians are straight from Hogwarts but Nicolai reveals that being a mentalist is something that can be learnt with time. Reality is what we, as human beings, perceive to be real. “As I look around, the nature, etc many things look miraculous to me,” he ponders. 2017-11-24T16:50:21+00:00″>
