“The patter of hypnotism goes somewhat as follows: “You are relaxing. You are sinking down, down, down (which sends the subject down the time track, although the hypnotist didn’t know it). You are getting sleepier and sleepier. All you can hear now is the sound of my voice telling you to go to sleep (which installs a circuit). You want to believe everything I am telling you (which cuts down the ability of the subject to evaluate data). Everything I say to you will make a deep and lasting impression on you. When you wake up you will discover that you feel very light and airy. You will want to be kind to people. Any time in the future that I say the word ‘Abracadabra’ you will go into a hypnotic trance, no matter where you are or what you are doing. You want to do exactly as I tell you to do. I am your friend. I am the best friend you have.” - Science of Survival, by L. Ron Hubbard
My, my. This is exactly what Swami Hubbard does with his “clearing”.
He installs all sort of circuits, such as “implants” by using “study technology” and then sends the “preclear” down the time track and tells the preclear to “feel better” when he wakes up from auditing. Of course the preclear doesn’t get to wake up until he tells the Swami what it is he wants to hear.
The preclear will then wake up and feel light and airy and thank Swami Hubbard for being the best friend that the preclear has ever had.
As Swami Hubbard has taught, all problems in life can be resolved through auditing. This guarantees that automatic hypnotic trances will occur continuously for the preclear and relieves the Swami from going out to work for a living.1
