HCO BULLETIN OF 30 JULY 19621
A SMOOTH HGC 25 HOUR INTENSIVE
Here is the pattern for a new Problems Intensive that can be given by HGC or field auditors and which will get them marvellous results on new or old pcs.
This arrangement makes Prepchecking come into its own, for if it is well done then the pc is fairly well set up for having his goal found.
This intensive is amazingly easy to run providing that the auditor does it pretty well muzzled and does not violate Repetitive Prepchecking drill. Of course if the auditor’s meter reading is not perfect and if the auditor is not cognizant of recent HCO Bulletins on the meter and if the auditor misses as many as two reads in a session, this whole result can wind up in a fiasco. If the pc doesn’t feel better on this one then the auditor just didn’t read the meter or miserably flubbed current drill. Of these two the D of P had better suspect the meter readings if anything goes wrong.
The first thing to do is complete the old case assessment form. We do this in Model Session and check after each small section of it as to whether we’ve missed a withhold on the pc.
We then assess the self-determined change list (and don’t goof and put other determined changes on the pc’s change list, or we’ll be assessing engrams).
We find the most important, most reacting change in the pc’s life by the largest read. This can also be done by elimination.
We then locate the prior confusion to that change. In no case will it be earlier than two weeks from the incident. These confusions, so often missed by the auditor, take place from two weeks to five minutes before the actual decision to change.
Having located the time of the prior confusion, but not done anything else about it, no lists of names or anything like that, we then go one month earlier in date.
This gives us an exact date for our questions. Let us say the self-determined change was 1 June 55. The prior confusion was 20 May 20 55, and the arbitrary month earlier was 20 April 55. We get the pc to spot this arbitrary date more or less to his own satisfaction.
We now form a question as follows: “Since (date) is there anything you have____?”
The endings are in this order: suppressed, suggested, been careful of, invalidated and failed to reveal.
The question with one end is completely cleaned by Repetitive Prepchecking. One asks it off the meter until the pc says there is no more. Then one checks it on the meter and steers the pc with any read, and then continues the question off the meter, etc, etc.
In turn we clean each one of the buttons above. This will take many hours in most cases. It is vital not to clean anything that’s clean or to miss cleaning a read that reacts. In other words, do a clean meter job of it all the way at sensitivity 16.
When we have in turn cleaned each of the buttons above, we do a new assessment of the change list and get us a new time just as before and handle that just as before.
When the second area is clean we assess for a third.
Frequently, particularly if the needle gets dirty, we ask for missed withholds.
Indeed one can use all the middle rudiments at least once each session.
With expert needle reading that intensive will give the pc more gain per hour of auditing than anything else short of Routine 3GA.
I wish you lots of success with it. Remember, the more variables you introduce into such a system the less confidence the pc will have in you.
