Have the subjects extend both of their arms out directly in front of them. After having the subjects close their eyes begin with suggestions that are the right arm you are attaching a helium balloon. Feel it becoming lighter, and lighter. Now begin suggestions that are the left wrist you are draping a heavy iron bucket across the left wrist. The bucket is now being filled with wet, moist heavy sand. Continue suggesting that the right arm is feeling lighter, and lighter, while the left arm is feeling heavier and heavier. After a few moments have the subjects open their eyes without moving their arms, and look at where their arms are and the other people around you are.
