This technique is essentially getting the person to put out an anchor point, or receive an anchor point gracefully. You base it on "A man's health is proportional to his belief in his own dangerousness to his environment."

With this technique, you can process a cat or a dog. Let us say we had this real timid cat, or just a plain cat. People don't have to be crazy to be processed, and cats don't have to be crazy to come upscale. You go up to this cat, and you put your fingers down near that cat's paw, and the cat just simply can't resist sooner or later reaching out and touching your finger. If it's a very timid cat, it will just touch your fingers, and at that moment you withdraw your fingers an inch or two, not too suddenly because you'll frighten the cat, but just withdraw your fingers. And a cat will look at that hand and touch it again. Withdraw four or five inches that time, then the cat says, "This is too good to be true," probably, and quits.

So you put your fingers back near the cat's paw and the cat says, "Well, I drove that hand away once, probably I couldn't do it again. Well, I might as well try." And so he couches the finger again. Immediately, you withdraw four inches and say "Ow!" He didn't claw you. The cat looks at you kind of started, "That hut you?" he says.

You just keep this up for a little while and all of a sudden the cat will be sitting there looking very very proud.

This is a mechanical approach and you should know this because it is the only technique that is very very effective on small children. A child with whom you cannot easily communicate may be brought to reach out and touch your fingers or touch something which you are holding. You reach down with a bright toy or bright ribbon and the child reaches for it, and not aggravatingly, you just bring the ribbon back with a little jerk, and the child reaches for it again, and touches it (remember, let the child touch, let the cat touch, let the dog touch). And you pull it away again.

The child may either decide that it wants that ribbon, at which time they'll rip it out of your fingers, or that they're very tough and driving the ribbon away, particularly if about the third time you do it, you say "Ow!"

But don't take a little child who is very timid and say "Ow" too loudly or too painfully, because the child will be quite dismayed, and look at you and say, "Did I hurt you?" "Gosh, I didn't mean to hurt you, don't beat me, don't shoot me, don't eat me!"

You just keep this technique up day after day and all of a sudden you walk in and this poor neurotic little kid that you first ran into says "Humph!" Mama, by the way, is feeling the effects of this, too.

And so it is with a psychotic. Your psychotic doesn't have to be made to talk in order to be processed. You reach for the psychotic's fingers and wait until the psychotic touches your fingers, and then withdraw them a tiny bit, the same way you process a cat. The first thing you know, the person will start to exhibit some sign of sanity.


For animals:
Put your fingers down near that animal's paw. When the animal reaches out and touches your hand, withdraw your fingers an inch or two, not too suddenly because you'll frighten the animal. Then put your fingers down again near his paw, and when the animal touches your fingers again, withdraw your fingers four or five inches that time. Put your fingers back near the animal's paw and when he touches the finger again, immediately withdraw four inches and say Ow!", etc.

For babies or children:
Use your fingers or a bright toy or ribbon and reach down to the child, when the child reaches for it, just bring the toy or fingers back a little. About the third time you do this, you say "Ow!" But don't take a little child that is very timid and say "Ow!" too loudly or too painfully, because the child will be quite dismayed.

This technique is kept up on a daily basis.

For an adult person:
You reach out for the person's fingers and wait until the person touches your fingers and then withdraw them a tiny bit, the same way you process a cat.

End Point

Run the process until a realization occurs, or an ability is regained.



These objective assist processes are excerpted and compiled from the works of L. Ron Hubbard as part of a study of the Briefing Course materials. They are made available here for the purpose of discussion on spirit-l. Spirit-l is a list intended for the discussion of the philosophical underpinnings of clearing philosophies and methods. Frequent topics include self-betterment processes that can be done alone or in a coprocessing setting. There are "fair use" considerations as the works these quotations are taken from are copyrighted. The actual owner of the copyrights seems to be in question, but it most certainly is not I. Therefore, these fair use excerpts are available for Spirit-l list subscribers to prepare for, and participate in, the on-line discussion. It is also for others who, although unable to participate in the discussion of Hubbard's work at this time (perhaps lacking email access or available time), would like to prepare for such discussion on the above thread topics in the future. Just as one can copy a chapter out of a book to teach a class, and even a whole book using a chapter for each class, separate supplementary manuals will facilitate the different on-line discussion topics.
