Description: Hubbard discusses how to achieve confidence on a gradient. Includes use of control, as "extreme" as the auditor feels necessary.
You do the auditing. This is all HGC type auditing, not PE Co-Audit. The auditor handles pc and improves pc on his own responsibility. Instructions which violate this (making auditor a via, not cause) may be disregarded both by student and staff auditors.
Audit the pc on the whole track as a general rule only when pc’s tone arm is sitting at Clear as a consequence of setting up the session, getting off present life overts, rehabilitating ability to withhold, getting responsibility run on incidents pc has revealed, getting off discreditable creations and getting responsibility run on them.1
Don’t wound-up doll on pc. Keep finding out what he is doing and how he is doing it and if he is doing anything else. Be interested.
Use heavy control, as extreme as you feel necessary, as mild as works.
The keynote is INCREASE CONFIDENCE by increasing ability. The gradient scale is:
(a) Confidence in being audited.
(b) Confidence in present existence (immediate time track).
(c) Confidence in present life.
(d) Confidence in regaining health by running off chronic somatics.
(e) Confidence in regaining memory of and recovering from past few lives, particularly the last one.
(f) Confidence on the whole track by removing overts and re-establishing withhold ability on the whole track.
If a step is done well and thoroughly, the next step is done more easily by pc.
If no thoroughness is present and if pc never wins on any step, recovery is only partial.
- Translated, this is the sequence of actions to be done in session: Create a standard “model session”, which includes seating the preclear in a chair, handing them the cans, adjusting the E-Meter and other familiar set-up actions to establish control of the person’s body and attention; get the preclear to confess all his crimes and discreditable acts done any time since conception; run processes that fix any compulsion to confess outside of session; run processes designed to get the preclear to “take full responsibility” for the acts just confessed; and finally, when the E-Meter reading is right, send the preclear into past life incidents with the procedures given elsewhere in this HCOB. ↩
