This booklet is provided to all persons newly beginning auditing. It lays out guidelines to follow in order to get maximum gain from one's auditing.


Sometimes a person engages in what is called “self-auditing,” which consists of applying processes on oneself. It is out-of-session wondering and chewing on one’s reactive mind. This is an error, as the person himself does not know how to resolve the problem. Most people have been trying to figure out what is wrong with themselves all their lives without success, so the self-auditing approach does not work.

Auditing is a team activity, with the auditor and the preclear working together. The auditor gives the auditing command, the preclear looks to his reactive mind, gets the answer to the question, tells the auditor, and then the auditor acknowledges the answer. In this way the preclear and auditor work together to handle the preclear’s reactive mind.

(Self-auditing is not to be confused with Self Analysis auditing. Self Analysis auditing uses the exact commands in the book Self Analysis by L. Ron Hubbard and actually amounts to being audited by the author. Neither is it the same thing as Solo auditing, which is a precise technology developed by Mr. Hubbard to enable one to attain various of the OT levels.)
