 Balducci levitation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Balducci levitation is a levitation illusion that was first described by Ed Balducci.
Although variations have been made to improve the illusion of genuine levitation, they are generally harder to perform, and some require gimmicks or setups that make them less practical than the Balducci levitation.
The reverse Balducci illusion is similar to the Balducci illusion, but the magician faces towards the audience at a 90-degree angle rather than facing away.

 Learn Levitation with Deep Trance Hypnosis
The body, microcosm, is seen as a representation of macrocosm and the entire practice begins with learning to generate energy and conserve it in one's dan-tien (hara) and later use it for whatever purposes and abilities the person desires to develop and express.
The Mastering Levitation Hypnosis Program is intended to make this whole process easier and help you get into the right state of mind for this practice, as well as to guide you through an easy technique - however it will still take quite a bit of time on your part before you'll experience the results.

Blaine did two levitations, the first being the Balducci levitation, which caught the girls reactions on camera, and the second when he was hooked on a line.

 Self Levitation : Elevator : King Rising : Balducci   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Self Levitation- the illusion of seemingly able to defy the laws of gravity and rise up from the ground- has really taken off (pun intended) in a big way ever since millions of people watched the David Blaine levitation trick in his "Street Magic" TV special.
The King Rising Levitation by Corey King is a non-gimmicked method which is a variation on the Balducci Levitation (see below).
The Balducci Levitation is the easiest non-gimmicked method but spectators can only view your feet from your back, which is not a very good angle.

 Levitation: How to Levitate Finally Taught...
I once asked Jonathan Bayme about the King Levitation DVD® and this is what he said to me, "King Levitation blows the Balducci, and all the other levitations out of the water." Now, I was skeptical, as all of you fence-sitters are now, but I decided to give it a try.
I did the Balducci Levitation for a friend (which freaked her out), then a few weeks later she told me she knew how to do it, so I just kept ignoring her (knowing that the KING was coming soon), and finally today I did it for her.
I've done the Balducci Levitation for years and have been busted only twice (I did it for too many people the first time and the second time the spectator moved while my back was turned).
