"How to Control Minds" is a hand-picked selection of easy, yet powerful, mentalism designed with both beginners and working magicians in mind. You don't need any prior experience to jump into the "How to Control Minds Kit." It's the perfect gift for magicians or mentalists (or even yourself).
There is something in here for everyone. You'll learn the secrets to harnessing a perfect blend of mentalism, psychology, magic and pseudo-hypnotic suggestion to give the illusion of truly being able to control minds. All in the name of fun and entertainment.
With the "How to Control Minds" Kit, you'll learn how to:
- Invisibly touch strangers from 6 feet away using Peter Turner's coveted "Midas Touch" method
- Convince an adult they can no longer read
- Make your friend believe their hand is stuck to a table and convince them to share their pin code
- Remove someone's ability to say their own name.
- Make a right-handed person switch to fully left-handed.
- Steal someone's strength so they can no longer push something on a table.
- Persuade someone to give you ALL of their possessions in an instant.
What's in the "How to Control Minds Kit"
This reputation maker from Peter Turner is worth the price of this kit alone. It's a powerful take on the classic PK touch routine that truly allows you to make strangers feel like they've have been touched, despite the fact you are 6 feet away from them. This is Peter's go-to effect and one of his most cherished creations. If this is all you take away from the "How to Control Minds Kit", then it will be money well spent.
The Try Principle
A versatile technique that allows you easily replicate a sense of hypnosis. You'll be able to make spectators be unable to say their own name or remove a pen from their own hand. You can even make them feel like their feet are stuck to the floor.
Like a Star Wars Jedi, you'll be able to move someone using an invisible force. No need to touch them.
Perfect for groups of all sizes, this effect allows you to steal a thought from someone's mind and then "hypnotically" replace it with one of your own. The method for this makes it nearly impossible to retrace. So, they will truly believe their thought has been replaced.
Arguably the most impressive feat of "mind control" in the kit, "Hand Stick" allows you to get a stranger to feel as if their hand is stuck to a table and they're unable to say their own name. This isn't some sort of hypnotic trance. It's just very pure and raw suggestion. And, if things go wrong, Peter Turner provides the perfect "out" to make it look like it worked perfectly.
BONUS: When your spectator's hand is stuck to the table, you'll learn how to make them say their pin code instead of their own name. They'll feel like they can't hold it back even if they wanted too.
IPI (aka. Instant Pseudo Induction)
Fast and elegant pseudo-hypnosis that looks better than most real hypnosis. It's almost impossible to fail and will blow audiences away. Without touching a stranger, you can make them instantly fall into a "hypnotic trance."
Pull of a "robbery" in broad daylight. Within less than 30 seconds, you'll be able to convince strangers that they should give you all their most precious belongings from their phone to their wallet. This is a powerful lesson in how easy it is for someone's mind to be controlled. Lots of presentation possibilities. And, of course, since this is for entertainment, not theft, they walk away with all their items.
This one is wild. You'll learn how to switch your participant's dominant hand. If they write with their right hand, they'll temporarily know how to write with their left hand. This mind control technique is actually quite simple too.
Using nothing but mental barriers (no physical barriers needed) you can take away the strength of a stranger. So much so, even the tiniest bit of friction between an object and the tabletop is enough to prevent them being able to push it. They simply cannot move it.
This is the perfect principle to use when trying to gain the attention of the whole room. It's very visul and a true display of "hypnosis" as entertainment.
BONUS 1: Secrets of TV & Stage
Peter Turner will share the technique used by nearly every performer on everything from stage performances to Netflix specials. The "secret sauce" to elevating basic effects to miracle status—especially when performing on a large stage, TV show or social media video. While it's not necessary to apply it to your effects, this is the technique that allows you to convince people that you know how to control minds, even if they rewind and watch the video over and over again.
BONUS 2: Mind Control Jam Session
Pete sits down with world-renowned magic consultant Mark Lemon for an expert jam session on of all the different ways to get the most out of every routine. There's some great subtelties and extra bits of information that will really help you get the ultimate impact. They even touch on how to deal with difficult spectators, hecklers and less than ideal locations. While working pros already understand the value this adds, we feel its necessary to stress to beginners that this is a section you don't want to skip!
IMPORTANT: Ellusionist would like to remind everyone that these techniques are to be used for entertainment purposes only.
