This package is made up of our “Secrets of Spiritual Hypnosis” videos as detailed below along with access to another Thirty (Yes 30) of our other related products which purchased individually (along with Secrets of Spiritual Hypnosis) would usually cost you at least $829.
Therefore at just $247 for this package is the best investment you will ever make into your Psychic Business as it will teach you all of the following:
Filmed on a Television broadcast quality camera at Royle’s Live Training seminar of the same day which took place on Saturday 13th October 2018 in Chesterfield, England at Future House Therapy Centre, you will become a fly on the wall during this approx five hours of truly explosive and eye opening video footage.
By way of the video footage, together with the audio files of the event which are also accompanied by a copy of Royles Book “Seance Secrets, Ghost Hunting Tricks & Paranormal Investigation Techniques” you will witness the demonstration of and also learn the Secrets behind…
The Magic of Crystals
Royle reveals an important seeming ritualistic process using a Crystal or Gem Stone that is designed so the audience seems to protect them from any Spirits that may be manifested during the experiments that follow, but that in truth is really designed to massively amplify everyone’s level of suggestibility and thus heighten their reactions and experience of all that follows.
An easy to learn, use and master technique for giving entertaining demonstrations of PLR = Past Life Regression. You are shown how you could conduct an entire evenings entertainment using this approach alone.
Not only will you be able to give demonstrations of FLP = Future Life Progression, but also you will be able to provide undeniable proof to the participants and the audience that FLP is real and has genuinely worked.
Help an audience member to take their mind on a trip out of the room they are in and all the way into the house of an audience member who confirms that the onstage volunteer is indeed correctly describing details they could not have known about the inside of their home!
Using the techniques of Creative Visualisation taught within this package you can apparently rapidly enhance peoples Psychic Ability to the point where they are able to make connections with audience members and reveal things to them they could not possibly have known.
Using just an ordinary everyday hand mirror, using this technique you will be able to give people the genuine feeling that they have managed to make their Soul, Spirit and/or Mind leave their body so they then really do have the experience of watching themselves as a “3rd Party” from a distance and seeing themselves staring into the mirror as well as seeing the reflection stare back.
You are taught two ways of enabling a volunteer to feel physical contact from a deceased relative in the Spirit World. One of these methods of so called “Psychokinetic Touches” style routines does not involve you ever secretly touching them, no special chairs or electronic devices of any kind are ever used and yet they will swear blind they have been touched (or kissed if you desire) as they will genuinely have felt this despite you never having been near them.
Royle’s Proven method for giving an audience member a large pad and a pen with which they conduct an experiment in automatic writing that concludes with them having written the name of a deceased relative of either themselves or another audience member with whom they have connected. This can easily be presented as them channeling a spirit.
Group Ghost Hunting & Paranormal Investigation nights can be a hugely profitable thing and along the way Royle reveals tricks of the trade he has used to ensure that people have truly memorable spooky experiences at such events he has presented over the years.
Along the way many other Secrets of Spiritual Hypnosis & New Age Style NLP are revealed and insights given into how easily people’s Habits, Addictions, Fears and Phobias in life can easily be overcome using such knowledge and techniques.
You will also learn Several Suggestibility Tests along with a couple of extremely effective and hugely reliable rapid Hypnotic Induction techniques which you will be taught numerous uses for, including mention of enabling audience members to make contact with their Native American Spiritual Power Animal, their Spirit Guide, tn Angel, a Deceased Love One or indeed with a Monster or even the Devil if that is their (and yours) desire and the situation is a suitable one.
During the course of the training video Royle at times gets “messages” and communications from the Spirit World that are confirmed by audience members to make sense to them. He then as events unfold explains the tricks of the trade used to make such apparently accurate things occur.
Within the accompanying PDF Ebook you will also find links to a further Eight hours of video training to help make your education complete.
Topics discussed, taught and/or explained in depth within this manual include:
EVP = Electronic Voice Projection, Spirit Photography, Ectoplasm, Ghostly Manifestations, Table Lifting & Moving, The Ouija Board, Automatic Writing, The Spirit Glass, Pendulums, Psychic Metal Bending, Ghost Hunting, The Dark Seance, Past Life Regressions, Human Levitation & Much, Much More.
There is also a truly comprehensive section teaching the Power of Suggestion and Hypnotic Techniques within the Seance, Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigation Arena.
Royle also reveals what Ghost Hunting tools and gadgets you may need and how to manipulate some of them for guaranteed “Phenomena” to occur!
Several real world audience tested routines are also included which enable you to allow volunteers to Safely experience themselves being briefly possessed by Spirit Energies in manners that are both highly visual and amazing to all those watching as well as to the person participating.
Royle has worked extensively in the Paranormal & Psychic Entertainment Arena over the past 30+ years and within the pages of this manual are all of his, until now, most jealously guarded Secrets of “Ghostly” Success.
He also discusses what he learnt from working with and alongside Paul Voodini and how this ultimately positively changed the way he ran his own future events.

(Review by The Legend That is Richard Webster International Psychic Author)
I haven’t read such an enthralling book in a long time. It starts off with a comprehensive section on the methods of fake spirit mediums. Alex explains his full evening presentation in great detail. This section alone makes the book well worth its price.
Alex goes on to include sections on Tarot readings, navel reading, navel healing, psychic stunts that appear genuine, the astrologer’s dream, how to determine people’s horoscope signs during a show, and past life regressions.
Everything is practical, easy to perform, and explained well.
This book isn’t for everyone, but is essential reading if you’re remotely interested in the world of the psychic. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down!
Jonathan Royle aka Alex Smith is certainly a person who has ‘been there, done that’.
From live shows, TV performances, and training courses, Alex has gained an immense amount of experience and information.
All of this information and experience is crammed into his latest release.
With Alex, what you see is what you get. And this rings true also with his instructional material.
There are no frills or unnecessary garnish, just good solid advice, and this release is full of good solid advice.
If you have any interest at all in the world of the psychic performer, then this book will give you the foundation stones and the building blocks you need to go out there and do it for yourself.” – PAUL VOODINI.

Reviews & Comments About This Unique Show…
This is not just a Mind Reading or Mentalism show this is a truly memorable THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE…
“”Having Watched Jonathan Royles Egg Sausage Peas Show I can honestly say its unique. With Psychic Belly Button Reading being the main hook of the first half around which the Mind Reading experiments are presented, this is most definitely not your conventional kind of Mentalism show. However Royle has some unique, creative and entertaining takes on such classics as the Chair Test, ACAAN, Hoys Tossed Out Deck and the Russian Roulette Plot which are certainly worth a closer look and take them to the next level. At times he had the audience on the edge of their seats and overall this show was top notch” Peter (The Perceptionist) Turner http://www.facebook.com/peterturnermind
“Jonathan Royle performs very direct Mentalism and Mind Reading that anyone would find accessible. ESP is a cleverly structured show with moments that stir up the full range of emotions. There are effects in there that most would struggle to work out, that includes other mentalists.”
Owen Mc Gough – www.owenmcgoughonline.co.uk
”Jonathan Royle leaves others in the field of mentalism and mind magic wanting, new and original takes on some old favourites and enough new material to leave you wondering “How on earth did he do that?” Fast paced, punchy and engaging, Jonathan always delivers. There are many performers in this field but only one true master. Don’t just take my word for it, look at the hundreds, if not thousands of “Testimonials” from others all over the world.”
Robert Phipps (Television Body Language Expert) http://www.robertphipps.com/
Having viewed the Jonathan Royles E.S.P Show I was Amused, Entertained, Bewildered. Amazed, Informed and Educated in equal measures! Jonathan’s performance was clearly that of a seasoned veteran on the stage.
Demonstrating an ability to explain most tricks as they were being performed, yet still bringing pleasurable delight to the audience.
A must watch for other professionals in the business, those wishing to learn more about how the mind operates and anyone who wishes to enjoy a couple of hours of action paced entertainment.
Brian Foley – http://www.the-stage-hypnotist.com
“I consider Jonathan Royle’s show first-class entertainment and a must-see event for anyone interested in comedy, psychic-style, mind reading. It is tongue-in-cheek, but great fun too.”
Phillip Solomon – http://www.philipsolomon.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/
“Just wanted to say thanks for a wicked show last night… really enjoyed it! It was funny, fresh, fast-paced and very clever! Loved your ‘Table of Doom’ routine… and lots of great routines that I’ve never seen before! Can’t wait for the next one.”
Robert Temple – http://www.roberttemplehypnotist.com/
“Amazing show, some moments are truly scary, some moments are educational, some moments are very, very funny. Every moment is Brilliant. Thanks”
Alistair Stevenson – http://www.absolutelypositive.org.uk/
Alex/Jonathan is back on stage in his new show Egg, sausage and peas. A combination of mentalism, hypnosis and comedy. Knowing Alex personally all I can say although controversial in nature, he delivers on what he promises and his new show is exactly that. I enjoyed all the different routines and it shows that the audience did too which is what is most important. Alex is like marmite you either love him or hate him but one thing they both have in common is they both sell!
Dr Robert Dodge. – http://nathanpower.co.uk/
“I went to see to “Eggs, Sausages and Pea’s” show performed by Jonathan Royle at the Three Minute Theatre in Manchester. I have to say I did not really know what to expect, However I wasn’t disappointed! Jonathan was funny and yet fascinating at the same time. He engaged the audience in all of the mentalism routines. The entire show left me amazed, wondering how he did the tricks. I was even part of the show and Jonathan made me feel completely at ease when I was on the stage. There was one trick called “The Table of Doom” which really did have me and every audience member on the edge of their seats, WOW. I won’t say any more but to go and see the show for yourself. Jonathan Royle is engaging, amazing and a true showman.
Adam Cowming – http://www.blhypnotherapy.co.uk
“Royle’s show is a masterful blend of comedy and mentalism, with belly button reading being not only a hilarious skit but a skilful display of his wide repertoire and ability as an entertainer, hypnotist and magician. The show builds to end with a fast paced crescendo of predictions that will delight all those who love psychological magic.Taking in to account the show I saw was his debut for this act, I can only see it going from strength to strength, and look forward to seeing it again when time has polished it to perfection.” Nathan Welch –http://www.story-therapy.co.uk/
“Thank you for a fantastic and magical evening. Truly mind blowing. The highlight for me was the table of doom’s “Do you want to change your mind because you’re not suppose to” Brilliant, funny and scary at the same time.”
Ben Hughes – http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=705888834
“Jonathan, In all honesty I thought the first half of the show way to slow in the pacing and the length of time to do the effects. Having said that, you did pick up the pace for the second half and hold it well. Two of my favourite effects, which I have performed many times, are Hoy’s Tossed Out Deck and the Ultimate Lift. Your variations on both were outstanding. I particularly liked showing the power of words with the signs for the Ultimate Lift. I saw a number of effects, if they were not original, you certainly changed them so much they might as well have been.” Ray Thompson http://www.hypnosisandmore.com http://www.facebook.com/themindwizard
“I think this is an excellent show. I particularly like the Nail (Russian Roulette) presentation. Well done and I hope it sells well for you and wish you every success with it. Such a nice change from television style acts. Best wishes Eddie”
Eddie Burke – http://www.mreenterprises.co.uk/
“Just watched part one of your Egg, Sausage and Peas Show. I have always had my doubts about mixing comedy and mentalism until I watched this. It really works well although I am glad to see that the mentalism was stronger than the comedy. Your presentation was excellent and there was plenty of audience involvement. I really enjoyed your lie dectector routine, I feel this always plays well with a large audience. Your psychometry routine was absoluely hilarious. I have never seen belly buttons used before to give character analyses. This is an absolute gem. The finish with the specs ring was also strong. The book test was well positioned in your show. As Cassidy says you should never open with a book test otherwise your audience will think you are using a confederate. The spectator synchronicity with cards was very baffling and the magic square made for a very strong finish. All in all a very enjoyable show.”
Roger Curzon – (Creator of The Miracle Signed Card in Envelope)
“Having watched jonathans egg, sausage, and peas show i have to say
i was greatly impressed. His combination of Comedy, and Mentalism
were brilliant. the whole structure of the show and its routines were all individually excellent but the way he combines them to produce these
amazing results is nothing short of spectacular. i even was asked up as a volunteer and i must honestly say the routine i was involved with i tried my best to make it as difficult as i could, i was gob smacked at how he did the trick with this particular routine especially as i was holding and shuffling the cards. If there is one show you must see this year make it Jonathan Royles egg, sausage, and, peas you will not be disappointed.” Al Shea – The TranceFormer – Hypnotist http://www.facebook.com/al.shea.9
The problem with writing a review, for the person writing it at least, is where to begin. And it is no different for me this time round trying to find the words to describe Jonathan Royle’s new show Egg, Sausage and Peas (ESP). Finding the right starting point is a bit of a conundrum. Should I comment on the finale of the show, expose the twists and turns or tell you about my favourite routine?
I’ve decided to answer no to all these questions and begin by telling you a little bit about Jonathan as a performer, then I’ll move on to the show as a whole. Leaving the twists and turns a surprise for those of you who decide to go and watch the show yourselves.
Jonathan is quite obviously a professional performer who has put a lot of effort into designing his on stage persona. From the moment he walks out on stage in his bespoke suit you can tell.
Before watching ESP I had not seen one of Jonathan’s shows before and to be honest I was expecting to see another Derren Brown clone. I’m sure many reading this will know what I’m talking about. Those mentalists with a little beard who use “psychology, magic, misdirection and showmanship” to create a poor recreation of Derren’s show.
This was not the case with Jonathan. Yes, he makes claims to using psychology. Yes, to the highly trained eye of the magician he uses magical techniques. Yes, he misdirects his audience with the expertise of a top showman. But when you watch him do it you’re not thinking to yourself: “well he’s obviously got the Mind Control box set permanently playing in every room in his house”.
Jonathan is a unique performer that has put his own spin on what has become a very factory line area of the magical arts.
So, what of the effects?
In a nutshell what Jonathan gives to his audience is of an extremely high quality. The effects themselves are baffling and there are many aspects that will fool even the more knowledgeable of magicians and mentalists. I have seen more magic shows than I care to admit to and I have sat through more bad magic shows than good.
This isn’t one of the bad ones.
There were many plots that I’d seen before, but Jonathan performed them in his way rather than just rehashing what had come before. What was a breath of fresh air was to see a fair number of effects that I can only assume are unique to Jonathan, as I had never seen them performed before.
The first half of Jonathan’s show is a selection of classic mentalism effects that build from a simple one-in-three chance to tackling the Holy Grail of mentalism (ACAAN) in a very clever way.
I enjoyed the first half immensely. The belly button routine was simultaneously unique, clever and very funny. However, I felt that Jonathan should have ended on his penultimate effect rather than the think of a number effect. I didn’t like the way this played out at all. And although he managed to get away with it, this isn’t how I would personally want to end the first half of my show; namely by just getting away with it.
For me, I would have liked Jonathan to end this half of the show on the card trick. It’s strong and seems completely impossible. This was a three-phase routine that has a truly killer ending. Even if the final trick had worked as it was supposed to it still would have been very anti-climatic to what had come before: Less being more and all that.
The second half adopts a change of pace that is mimicked by Jonathan’s change of costume to a more casual look.
This half of the show sees Jonathan play with the idea of celebrity, tell a tale of the demise of his grandmother’s mental faculties (resulting in her destroying her own house) and play a game using his daughter’s DVD book. But for me the highlight has to be the game he plays with a 6” nail. He calls it the table of death, but magicians will know it as the Russian roulette plot.
I have to say that this routine was not only the highlight of the second half, but the whole show. It is absolutely fantastic. From start to finish Jonathan builds the suspense to a point where the room is quite simply electric.
Members of the audience mix a cup with the nail under it with five others that don’t contain anything at all.
Then, and this is where Jonathan’s routine differs from others I’ve seen, he allows audience members to name numbers at random. He then crushes those named cups with his bare hands.
What I especially loved about Jonathan’s Russian roulette routine is the fact that the final spectator was allowed to change their mind. And when they did Jonathan simply crushed the number they’d switched to and revealed the final cup to contain the spike!
The Table of Death is simply stunning and a real magician fooler.
So to sum up.
In short Jonathan Royle’s show Eggs, Sausage and Peas (ESP) is a fantastic example of modern mentalism done well. He is one of those rare performers who stand out as unique among a host of bearded clones in a crowded field. ESP is a fun, heart warming and highly entertaining show that will make you laugh one minute and gasp in amazement the next.
I’m so glad I took the time to see it and I recommend that you do too.
“Jonathan has a stage presence that is undeniably honest. This true persona shines brightly during his latest ESP Show aptly titled Eggs, Sausage, Peas! Consisting largely of original material, Jonathan’s routining is a valuable lesson to amateurs and professionals alike. Rather than presenting one experiment, then the next, and then the next, etc., Jonathan blends large portions of the show together so cleverly, demonstrating efficiency with audience volunteers, items chosen and things written down, bringing a breath of very fresh air to the typical ‘mentalism’ show. This clever efficiency is responsible for the mind-blowing, multiple climaxes (yes, you read that right!) in most of Jonathan’s material. His smartly-devised, mult-phased routining and effects rule out reverse-engineering as a possible tool to try to figure out how he does many of his very original and entertaining effects. A routine that begins like the classic “Seven (in Jonathan’s case, five) Keys to Baldplate,” takes approximately 5 sharp turns, each with its own huge kicker, ending in an impossible birth year prediction that opens the combination padlock, releasing a volunteer’s wedding band. Strong, commercial material here. His Russian Roulette involving a jumbo, steel nail, is very strong: 2 hands, 6 cups, 1 nail and audience members steering the direction (no forcing) of the cup-smashing. Jonathan adds the right amount of drama needed to sell this effect to a lay audience and magicians ‘who know,’ will be scratching their heads at his presentation. Jonathan’s endearing story of his daughter, leads us to his “DVD Book” test which is strongly unique with an apparent ‘Magi screwed up-type ending,’ but actually ends correct as a visual and mental stunner – a very commercial piece. His closing piece involves ESP cards, but before you sigh, “really?!…”, bite your tongue, sit down, watch and take notes. The way that Jonathan gets audience members to pair up matching ESP cards is uncanny, the reveal is strong (seeing a theme here?), stretched out over time giving his audience one more unbelievable, compounded routine with multiple climaxes. Most excellent! …I need a cigarette.” Matthew Fallon http://www.fallonmagic.com http://www.hypno-tainment.com
Jonathan Royle graces the stage with his ability to second guess decisions you will make,predict impossible things and even scare the living S#* t out of you.
He will cause a spectators family member, “called on the phone” to name three random cards selected by three audience members.
He will predict things that no normal person should be able to foresee.
Jonathan will show you a video of other magicians failing at the most dangerous trick known in the world of magic, and why you should never try this at home. He then proceeds to smash his hand down on five polystyrene cups, avoiding a nasty 6″ sharp nail.
You will see spectators impossibly draw the same picture, even though they are six feet away.
What Jonathan’s show has, is an edgy feel to it. These experiments don’t always go according to plan. So if you want to be a part of something unique, then his show is a once in a lifetime thrill that you won’t forget.
The best part of Jonathan’s performance, is his ability to motivate you and make you leave feeling positive that you can achieve anything, as long as you have belief.
Jonathan claims he is using NLP, body language and subtle cues to know what your thinking, but I think you will leave believing he can really read your mind.
You will even have the chance to be a celebrity for the night as he predicts random decisions you make.
Jonathan’s combination of hypnosis comedy and mind stunts will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I would like to thank Jonathon for allowing me to review his show Eggs Sausage Peas and I will do this in 2 parts, so here is part 1. The show overall was excellent and I urge anyone who has the opportunity to see this to pencil a date in your diary as a must, if the show is in your area.
Ok the show itself was well routined a mixture of old techniques and Jonathans own unique effects and twists and variations on old techniques modernised for a modern audience. The opening of his show was in my opinion the weakest effect of the night a 3 card routine which might have been better placed elsewhere as i expected a strong and visual opening, but then what was to come made up for this.
The ACAAN was possibly the best version of the effect I have ever seen and the belly button reading was hilarious, variation after variation and multiple reveals and this slayed the audience.
The second half was faster paced and had a serious element with his version of Russian Roulette and 6 cups were used, not 4 or 5 that some other mentalists use, and I’ve even seen mentalists use just 3, so with the opening showing video footage of accidents and the Halloween theme belting out, this created atmosphere, and when mixed up and then the audience picked the order of cups he was to hit, made for a dramatic and tense moment and the successful conclusion was rewarded by a huge cheer and clapping.
The show ended with a revelation/prediction based on an ode to his Gran and with other revelations coming fast and furious, the show ended at great pace to huge applause, excellent show and great performance by Jonathan. Byron Rodriquez – Mentalist http://www.facebook.com/byronrodriguez67
Part 2 of review of Eggs Sausage Peas. As a mentalist and hypnotist albeit for 18 months, i think its an excellent idea to use the show as the basis of a mentalists training course. I already have 2 training courses from Jonathan and he is an excellent teacher and guide and will aid beginners into becoming more successful and more seasoned ones better performers.
There is a lack of mentalists training courses out there, in fact none as far as I know yet there are many books and effects on the market, however these cant teach you how to put a show together, the best opening and closing effect, audience management, routining a show and marketing a show etc, that would benefit the genre.
I use ACAAN and have 2 versions, yet Jonathon blew me away, and I use a chair test, yet Jonathan had audience members stand up for a variation unique to him and again excellent.
Now not everyone will want to do a Russian Roulette type effect, but again everyone will have their own unique style of performing, so its getting the right effects for your style, and so there is a need for a concise training product.
I don’t expect Jonathon would give away performing rights with this training package, but if he did it would be the must have mentalists product of the year, however even without that, its still a package that all budding mentalists need to add to their library as his training and teaching are second to none .

STOP PRESS – NEW REVIEW FROM MAGICIAN CARL DE ROME OF NORWAY
Jonathan Royle takes to the stage and commands the respect of his audience from the outset!
Having seen the show that lasts for over 2 hours of Mental Magic, with E.S.P. hence the shows title Egg, Sausage and Peas, he wastes no time in getting 5 volunteers up onto the stage, and what for, of all things to do a great set of ESP finishing off with an hilarious belly button reading routine that had the audience in stitches.
The first half of the show closes with one of the best MAGIC NUMBERS SQUARE You are ever likely to see, as its not expected from anyone until the final reveal, taking everybody by surprise even Magicians as when you realize its to late!
After a short break Jonathan aka Alex does a costume change, looking smart and casual and again takes to the stage with more E,S,P, and mind reading plus as a bonus a little Hypnotic effects and again lots of audience participation, If I remember correctly he had over 20 people up on stage during the 2 halves.
One very funny routine involves 5 members of the audience choosing his daughter a cartoon character to read for a bedtime story, at the end the audience are duped into thinking the trick has gone terribly wrong for Jonathan, How wrong they are when Jonathon takes the paper bag off his head to reveal he knew all along what they had chosen, I won’t give the ending away to this, as I do not wish to spoil it for anyone.
So I suggest you go and see Egg Sausage and Peas LIVE you will Not be disappointed, and the show is really good value for money.
Lastly Jonathon performs a trick I also perform Smash and Stab? But I have to say His version blew me away, and is totally different version to mine or in fact to any version I have seen, and I have absolutely NO idea how he did it.
Starting off with a warning Video on the big screen of other magicians getting it really wrong and warning the audience of the dangers and NOT TO TRY THIS THEMSELVES.
Using 6 cups ( not the usual 4 ) the spectator puts a 6inch metal nail onto one of the cups facing straight up, then the spectator mixes them up so no one knows where the nail is, the cups are then numbered 1 to 6 and Mr. Royle simply just asks 5 audience members one at a time to simply choose a number…
and then as each number is chosen that is the cup he slams his hand down onto, I have not got a clue how he did this and in a way I’m happy about this fact as I loved it.
So for a great night out, and to see a great show performed by a Mentalist who really knows his craft, you could not really do any better than popping along and seeing the show Egg, Sausage, and Peas, LIVE for yourself, and take along some friends especially the skeptic ones it will really kick them right in there heads!
It’s a show you will enjoy and walk away wondering If he has powers or was it just good trickery,….who cares it’s a good show…..
