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.
