Put your Attention on my Hand


Tape: 5406C17 6ACC 50 "Assists"

Volunteer Ministers' Handbook, Chapter on Assists


This process can be used as an emergency assist. Let's say that you were a public school playground supervisor and a child falls down and wrenches his ankle. You get to the child; you want a minimum of talk in the vicinity always. You just ask the child, "Put your attention on my hand," and you put your hand below that ankle (in other words, on his heel, his shoe, his toes and so forth), "Thank you".

Maybe the child is writhing around in pain but he will at least try to do it. You will feel the limb tremble, you will feel the tremor abate, you will feel it cut-in again and then get quiet and for several placements no particular result. And then, you will feel the tremble and you will feel it abate except that the tremble each time will be less. The person will actually feel the impact over again that caused the injury. The child will (if you do this well for about ten, fifteen minutes) quite ordinarily simply get up and walk without a limp and no difficulty.


First, tell the person what you are going to do. Let him know that you want him to give you a signal every time he has put his attention on your hand. "Put your attention on my hand." (Move your hand, before giving the command). "Thank you."

"Put your attention on my hand." "Thank you."

"Put your attention on my hand." "Good."

"put your attention on my hand." "Okay." etc. to End Point.

End Point

Pain gone, a realization, and good indicators.



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.
