R2-50 Changing Minds


Creation of Human Ability (R2-50)


The basic process of a spiritual being (thetan) is simply getting him to change his mind. Most spiritual beings fall below the level of mechanics. They have to be brought up to a point where they're not being handled by mechanics before they can simply change their considerations. If changing minds worked on every spiritual being, it would then be the only process in Scientology, but it does not work on spiritual beings who are interiorized since they are being other things than themselves, and when they start to change their minds, they are simply changing something else.

When you have a spiritual being exteriorized, all you have to do is ask him to change his mind and, unless he is still very badly burdened by mechanical considerations with which he has so thoroughly agreed that he cannot immediately change his mind, he will do so.

This process can be used on a non-exteriorized being, however, and those who are uneasily exteriorized, by having them stand in one place with an idea that they have to appear there, and then change their mind, and disappear there. Or simply have them stand in one place until they change their mind, and then go to another place until they change their mind, and go to another place and change their mind.

This is done, actually, by moving the body around, as most processing these days is done.


The commands for this would be:

"Walk over to this spot" (indicating a spot to the person).

"Now decide you have to appear there."

"Now change your mind and decide you have to disappear there."

"Now change your mind and decide you have to appear there." And so on.

This can be worked into opening procedures (see Creation of Human Ability, R2-16) by having a person select a spot, then change his mind about the spot, select another spot, change his mind about that spot and select another spot , until he knows that he, himself, is changing his mind.

When exteriorized, the being can change his mind very easily on any subject simply when told to do so. Very often, he does not realize that he can change the factors of his life by changing his mind, and so has to ask the processor.

End Point

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


This does not work on interiorized clients with any great success.

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.
