THE AUDITING SESSION
The period of time during which an auditor audits a group, himself or another is called an auditing session. A session is conducted at an agreed-upon time established by the auditor and preclear (or group).
Auditing uses processes—exact sets of questions asked or directions given by an auditor to help a person locate areas of spiritual distress, find out things about himself and improve his condition. Many, many different auditing processes exist and each one improves the individual’s ability to confront and handle some part of his existence. When the specific objective of any one process is attained, the process is ended and another can then be used to address a different part of the person’s life.
An unlimited number of questions could, of course, be asked—which might or might not help a person. The accomplishment of Dianetics and Scientology is that L. Ron Hubbard isolated the exact questions and directions to bring about spiritual freedom.
The questions or directions of the process guide the person to inspect a certain part of his existence. What is found will naturally vary from person to person, since everyone’s experiences are different. Regardless of experience or background, however, the individual is assisted in locating not only areas of spiritual upset or difficulty in his life, but in locating the source of the upset. By doing this, any person is able to free himself of unwanted barriers that inhibit, stop or blunt his natural abilities and increase these abilities so that he becomes brighter and more spiritually able.
There are no variables in the technology of auditing, no random results or haphazard applications. Auditing is not a period of vague free association. Each process is exact in its design and in its application and attains a definite result when correctly ministered.
Scientology auditing can bring people from a condition of spiritual blindness to spiritual existence.
