A professional hypnotist has left people baffled as he managed to hypnotise them with simple hand trick through social media.
Narrating the mind trick, the hypnotist started by asking viewers to put their arms in front of them.
He then explained that when he counted to two, those at home taking part should turn their left palm upwards and close their eyes when he reached three.
Temple told people to just do nothing else but listen to his instructions. From here, things got a little tricker.
The hypnotist ordered listeners to 'imagine their imagination being unlocked' and as they’ve lost one of their senses, sight, momentarily, their other sense would become 'more powerful'.
Temple then asked those taking part to imagine him placing 'a really heavy pile of books' on their left palm and as he continued taking those books would get 'heavier and heavier', gently pushing their hand towards the floor.
While one hand was grappling with the weight of the world, he asked people to imagine a pile of red helium balloon tied to their right index finger, lifting their hand 'higher and higher' towards the ceiling.
Temple went on to repeat his instructions again before snapping his fingers and asking those at home to open their eyes and examine where their hands were.
And it should come as no surprise that people at home were left spooked by the power of his hypnosis, as they opened their eyes to see their left arm pointing towards the ground, and their right looking up at the ceiling.
One penned under the video: “This was crazy, I tried it and all the muscles in my left shoulder became exhausted, and my right arm literally flew up weightlessly how amazing!”.
"Worked pretty damn well for me. Especially the book one," another shared. "The moment he mentioned the books my hand felt heavier and heavier.
"The balloon one wasn’t as quick, it took a bit of time but did eventually work".
A third commented: “Crazy! My hand was shaking from the weight (or imagined weight) of the books.
"I was focusing on how heavy the books where I didn’t even realise my right arm lifting with the 'balloons'."
"The book worked but I’ve got horrendously stiff shoulders, so my arms felt heavy anyways. It was more shocking that my right arm felt so much lighter and actually went up," another penned.
