The magician allows the participant to shuffle and cut the cards. They are then placed into a silk and the magician removes a single card. Then tries to send the thought of card to the spectator but fails (52/1 odds) He suggests trying again but having the spectator send the thought. A few cards are removed and the spectator chooses one. The cards are returned to the silk and the deck is again shuffled by the participant. Again the cards are returned to the silk and the magicians using the signal from the participants mind removes a few cards looking at each one recognizes and identifies the thought of card.
This effect will blur the line between card and mentalism magic. You make the spectator the real star as you reverse the roles making them the ones with the telepathic ability.
