The contact assist is remarkable when it can be done. The patient is taken to an area where the injury occurred and makes the injured member gently contact it several times. A sudden pain will fly off and the injury if minor lessens or vanishes. This is again a physical communication factor. The body member seems to have withdrawn from the exact spot in the physical universe.

The restoration of awareness is often necessary before healing can occur. The prolongation of a chronic injury occurs in the absence of a physical communication with the location of the spot of injury in the physical universe.


There are no set commands. Take the person to the exact spot where the accident occurred. Then have him duplicate exactly what happened at the time of the accident.

For instance, if he hit his head on a pipe, have him go through the action of putting his head against the exact spot on the pipe, having the pipe also touch the exact spot on his head. He should be duplicating the whole thing. That is, the rest of his body should be in the position it was at the time of the accident. If the object is hot, you let it cool first, if current was on, you turn it off before doing the assist.

If he had a tool in his hand, or was using one, he should be going through the same notions with it. Have the person repeat this several times, until the somatic occurs again. It will occur and blow off when he duplicates it.

End Point

Pain gone, realization.



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.
