Ehud Segev was born in Israel in 1979 in the city of Safed , the
spiritual center of the Jewish world. In the 16th century Safed
emerged as the city of Kabbalah. What is Kabbalah? It is the
oldest, most influential wisdom in all of human history that
reveals all the spiritual and physical laws that govern the
cosmos. All the great scholars and Rabbi's who studied and
taught the secrets of Kabbalah lived in this great city. It is
also the origin where Ehud Segev began his spiritual destiny.
Segev credits his parents for their love and belief in him. He
recalls, "No matter what, my parents always supported me." Early
on they knew he had a gift of insight, he continues "When I was
twelve, I took the entire shelf of books that dealt with
mysticism and spiritualism from the library, and my mother had
to sign a permission form since I was too young for this topic.
The librarian may have thought I lost my mind but my mother was
ever so supportive. I'll never forget that."
The first experience with mysticism came when a young Segev
begged his parents to buy him Tarot cards, because he could see
and feel a powerful energy from them. He started doing Tarot
readings at age 12 for friends and neighbors. The cards were
just a tool to connect to the universe's powers as Segev's
connection to himself developed.
"Others call it intuition. I don't. I call it connections. You
connect to yourself and then to others. The more you are
connected the biggest the miracles you can perform in your life.
I don't have any supernatural powers, on the contrary - my
powers are so natural that they are
super natural. In my show I
combine my special abilities as a performer, along with magic
and spirituality. My goal is one: to make this world a better
place and to help people realize that our deepest desires aren't
materialistic but spiritual. If I can use all the publicity and
stage-presence I get to bring people closer to the light, my
destiny is fulfilled."
By age 13 everybody began to know of him but no one knew his
real name. Because of his extraordinary abilities Segev became
known as "The Magic Man". His popularity in Israel grew
particularly amongst the students in his class.
"I used to shock everybody. I knew the topics for the tests
before the teacher would say one word." - He said.
Fascination with Segev continued and he was often asked to
communicate with parallel universes. Hundred of séances were
conducted and thousands of people's lives were touched by the
amazing power Segev possesses. Following his first TV appearance
at age 16, three years later he set out to perform the biggest
séance in history for national broadcast. This feat was
accompanied with controversy and skepticism. Religious leaders
sought to ban the séance, which was supposed to channel slain
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The rabbis won; The séance
was never performed.
At 19 he continued to shock and amaze. In a newspaper article,
"The Prophecy", Segev predicted who would win the race for the
mayors' chair in a few cities in Israel.
The article was published 11 days before the election took
place. With only a photo to reference Segev used his inner
Kabbalistic energy to compose a profile on each candidate and
foresee the winners. Segev was 100% right. He explained to the
fascinated reporters that he used his mental abilities to
analyze the candidates. This is when people started calling him
the Mental Analyzer, or soon to be nicknamed The Mentalizer.
"The Mentalizer" phenomenon quickly spread and Segev knew he had
a mission. He wanted to use his publicity to help people
everywhere. He put together a special performance and with "The
Mentalizer Show" Segev was able to entertain and touch audiences
throughout the world. His mission is not to provide merely
entertainment but to have people leave his show with the feeling
they learned something about life.
Segev is currently working on his first book, "The Mentalizer
Way" that will describe his unique perception of life.
In the summer of 2004 Segev premiered his "Mentalizer Show" in
Theatre Row at 42nd street - the heart of the theatre district
in Broadway, New York. As a part of his life mission, Segev
donates ALL profits from his theatre show to charity.
