## To Prepare

Mind Probe is quick, effective and quite easy to do. To begin, you'll have to do a little searching, but finding the proper bill isn't as difficult as you might think. Start checking the serial numbers on every bill that comes into your possession, despite its denomination. What you're looking for are serial numbers that have just three digits, for example, A53773353B.

(Note: Don't stop with just one bill. Continue your search and eventually, you'll be able to increase the impact by using several bills as I do in my stage performances. I'll explain further on).

April and I have become so accustomed to checking serial numbers, to this day we can't break the habit. When you've found one, choose the lowest digit in the serial number which in our example would be the "3," and in the duplicate serial number found in the lower left of the bill, draw a circle around one of the threes. Turn the bill over and type in the margin at the top of the light green side your second prediction using the next highest number. In our example that would be the "5." It should read, "I predict that you'll think of the 5!" Get a wallet or pocket secretary that has a pad on the right side and a pocket on the left. Boldly print a third prediction on the pad as follows: "I predict that you'll mentally choose the seven." Place several bills in the pocket of the wallet with the prepared bill on top and closest to you. The light green side should be facing you with the typed prediction on the right. Place the wallet in your inside jacket pocket and you're ready to go.
