Magic download (video) by Andi Gladwin ($12.00)
One undisputed highlight from Andi Gladwin's shows and lectures is "Aura," in which a spectator finds her own card from a genuinely shuffled deck. The routine is three phases, each more impossible than the last, and it's nearly self-working.
Due to some devious, yet simple, gimmickry, "Aura" is essentially self-working. Andi takes you through everything you need to know in this thirty-minute download, and even gives you multiple variations and ideas to make the effect your own.
Whether you're performing in casual or formal situations, "Aura" is set to be your new closer.

Customer reviews for Aura
Andi, when I saw your performance of this, I knew I had to put it in my act. Man, this routine is brilliant! I love magic that tells a story and this one can be changed in so many ways to fit the mood or occasion (I'm working on a Halloween adaption: "Three Ghosts") It flows logically and simply but I added a "Cut Deeper" force at the start to make it even simpler. You guys are quickly becoming my favorite magic store, brother. Keep 'em coming'!
This get my vote for download of the year if such a thing exists! It's a very clever method, a great presentation and a really great construction. $10 for this is a real steal. Congratulations Vanishing Inc and Andi Gladwin - you guys rock.
The other reviewers are right -- this really is a fantastic download. Since watching this I have gone back and purchased everything that Andi has produced. A hidden gem!

I will describe this in only one word… Wow! Very powerful magic, this is something you will add to your repertoire for your formal shows. Don’t think about it, just buy it. Thank you Andi for sharing this amazing piece of magic
The effect is easy to understand. It appears to increase in difficulty to the audience. It naturally and organically gets the audience involved, the storyline is intriguing, what more could you want? It is fairly easy to do, the method is clever, the handling can be learned in less than 5 minutes for anyone familiar with a deck of cards.
I needed to perform at a business function, I used this effect as the opener to a speech on networking and getting to know people on a more intimate level. Needless to say it was the perfect introduction and a strong piece of magic to drive home the point.
Every download I've ever watched at Vanishing Inc are both entertaining and informative.
Beautifully explained!!! I very much enjoyed this and hope everyone will too!!! I know that the jacket thing puts off but you did mention how to without it so just perfect!!! Everyone should definitely get this and I can't wait to perform this to all my friends and family
A great trick, a great routine, comes with a demo, followed by a very well explained tutorial, including how too with the selections, plus the different options for the outs are all explained on how too, although the spectator will not be aware off this, i like the bicycle card explanation, you will no what l mean by this when you get this tutorial. Once you no the method, get the presentation down, and the rest of the magic will just flow. Its a very deviouse fun trick to do.
This video sets the standard for teaching a new trick. 1) It starts with a great routine; 2) The presentation is very well-organized and logically constructed; 3) the explanation is extremely clear and thorough, without over-dwelling on points; 4) Andy has a great sense of humor; 5) there are multiple performance options offered up, to help all of us who come in with varying levels of skill. I could go on, but won't. Thank you for a great routine, easily understood and which made me immediately put together the various pieces needed to perform this. I'll even modify my suit coat...
Always a pleasure to listen to Andi. Great trick, great ideas, great presentation, great magician. The explanations are absolutely clear, you can see that Andi´s intention is not for him to get it done, but for you to learn and understand. I would totally recommend this to anyone, specially if you´re looking for strong openers!
Yeah excellent constructive thought process is what level this routine follows. Dare I say that the pocket lining switch is like a psuedo Topit of sorts and operates quite deviously, out of sight out of mind, and is a miniscule sacrifice of the lining, for a powerhouse result. I did think that a one way deck was in play, to begin with, but was unable to reconstruct the possible pathway, where the deck could possibly have been effectively switched, so that notion was quickly dispelled, due to the fact that the spectator has freedom to rummage around, in an attempt to produce the selection. Absolute Diamond Deception and Brain numbing entertainment. This is Stellar!!! Thanks for sharing it.
I wasn't sure how to spend my points and I decided why not and boy was it a great decision. I can't wait to start performing this, it is a very strong and impossible effect. Andi goes into great detail on the explanation and is a very good teacher when explaining. I would recommend this to any serious closeup/ parlor performer.
“Aura” is a great performance piece that allows each magician to customize the presentation to suit their individual style. You have three spectators select cards from a deck, and those cards are returned to the deck and later found in an impossible manner. The mechanics of the trick are simple, so the performer can relax and focus on entertainment— and isn’t that really what makes a magic performance a winner? As I interpret this trick, its heart and soul is in how you interact with each spectator. You might see it as a chance to play up the card locations. This effect affords many opportunities.
Such a cool effect! Very easy to perform and super powerful for layman. The method is simple and easy to perform, but doesn’t take away from the effect at all. It is an extremely entertaining presentation and you will love performing it.
This was a freebie I purchased by redeeming points, and I’m happy I did. Andi is an excellent instructor with scads of ideas about handling, subtleties of the most mentalism-y touches of the trick’s effects, and audience management. Unfortunately I may need to make changes to his routine due to a) a straightforward sleight that I nevertheless always have trouble with, and b) the need to alter irrevocably a piece of clothing for the sake of parts 2 and 3 of the effect. Still, the 1-2-3 punch of the effect is too good for me NOT to want to emulate Dani’s handling as closely as possible. Having acquired the necessary gimmicks (and there are a couple, though most serious amateurs will have at least one of the two), I’m going to give this a go in spite of the snags.
First off, Andi is a truly incredible teacher and master magician. He has a likeable style and understandable explanations. This miracle is a head scratcher, but because you need a jacket I would say its not for beginners. I never wear a jacket thus never perform any magic in one.
the method is genius and it should be used as a closer and stand back and take the applause.
get this miracle at the affordable price, you won't be disappointed.
The first two ways you find a card are cool and simple enough. The final way the spectator finds the card needs a special deck which you would need to purchase separately if you do not have it. You could probably just adapt the trick to two phases but it would be missing the kicker ending.

That will take you to another page that shows your total points and items that you can spend your points on as well as how many points they “cost”. Select the item(s) you want and they will be added to your cart. Hope this helps.
