The isolation where you hold the ball with one hand and it looks like it's floating and your hand is moving around it? It's a very very basic isolation and I read somewhere how to do it or atleast how to practice it but can't remember where. When I try it I get a lot of up and down motion to the ball.

I am pretty sure that they cover that isolation in the "4 basic isolations" essay.

Meanwhile... i was once told that pretending to turn a door knob (your ball being the knob) that it helped getting that iso. That bit has helped me get it.

I can do that. But you see some people who can not just turn it, but look like their moving their hand all around it, front, back, and to the side. I just have a hard time keepng it from moving up and down. I'm constaly looking at my girlfriend saying "can you see it moving?"

The wonderful diagram found in this thred might help. http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=5457
Try to isolate the ball on each axis alone before combining them.

I tend to look at the ball and pick up on the reflection of something static in the ball like a door or window, then move my hand around and try to keep the image static in the ball, there are a few blind spot moments but on the whole it works for me.

I try this too. It seems that those when I get to those blind spots is when my hand decides to move.
