By Lana Mitchell,

I am convinced that hundreds, if not thousands, of Scientologists who have trained as auditors (whether as a co-auditor on TRs and Objectives, as an Assist auditor, as a Grad V, Class VI, Class VIII, Class IX or IX) are no longer auditing for the simple reason of invalidation.

The technology of auditing is a simple one. The use of a meter is not complex. The tool of Two Way Communication is a powerful one. And the rewards in assisting another, through the application of tech can never be understated.

Here is what LRH has to say about it:


“It was discovered in the Sea Organisation that proven high calibre good standard Class VIII auditors suddenly without any apparent reason ceased to be able to audit well, made gross goofs and backed off from auditing completely.

“It’s source was traced back to INVALIDATION.

“The cases on whom it occurred were handled very speedily, very simply with ASTOUNDING RESULTS.

“The remedy was simply asking them in 2 way comm who had told them they couldn’t audit. No meter, no complications, just very simple 2 way comm.

“One of the cases was in fact handled in a room full of people. This case was black in the face and most adamantly refused to audit and ARC broken to the extent that she PHYSICALLY WALKED AWAY from the idea.

“The question was simply asked: “WHO told you you couldn’t audit?” or WHO told you that your auditing wasn’t any good?”

“Answer: “Nobody did”

“OK. WHO told you your auditing wasn’t any good?”

“Answer with sudden misemotion: “You all did”


“(BRIGHTENS) ..says a name.

“OK … did somebody at some earlier stage tell you you couldn’t audit?

“No…but so and so told me that I wasn’t doing any good in such and such…ooooooh..line charge…my mother always told me that I couldn’t do…bla bla bla…

“Very bright now, still slightly hesitant..OK..

“When is ALWAYS? ;When I was 6 …BINGO.

“Back to auditing, and … getting ;WELL DONES , and pc’s WINNING, auditor getting STANDARD sessions and STANDARD results.

“And that is ALL there is to it. We are talking here about the Class VIII auditor giving this assist and the Class VIII auditor receiving it. Scientologists of this calibre and standard of training can be expected to have the awareness and ability to bring these results about.

“The length it took for these actions was from about 3 to 5 minutes.

“The Class VIII auditor is an outstanding target for invalidation. BEWARE!! The actions described above were done virtually off the cuff by a Class VIII auditor on other Class VIII’s, and were done when the INVALIDATION factor was isolated as the common denominator.”


PS. Thank you to Chris Black for supplying me with this reference, which I had never read before, and really assisted me to get into the chair and auditing regularly.

Hi Lana,
This is a great reference – and an excellent BLOG! Well done and welcome to the blogosphere. I have no doubt this site will help many to find their way to productive and happy futures applying this incredible technology. There are so many people around the world who are discovering a shackle-free life, myself among them, and it’s great to know of yet another safe harbor. Forward, HO, and THANK YOU! Love, Mark

Great Blog Lana!

Nice and simple

A great introductory article to kick off the blog.

Yes, it is not difficult to get back in the chair! It can ‘seem’ difficult, especially at the time, but as LRH has so simpy put it, one can simply locate the stop and it will then blow. A great piece of tech!

Here’s to many hours of happy auditing!

Hi Lana,

Nice blog, and thanks. I can help out on Qual functions or references if that would help you. I’m sure a lot of fine folk will show up here and be able to contribute as well. But if you need anything special, let me know.

All the best, and what a great concept this is!

Hi Lana,

(Seems like I hit a wrong button and erased my earlier comment, but in case I didn’t and it’s taking it’s time to get on here, forgive my lapse in memory. I forgot where I left my mind.)

Anyway, I said that this is a wonderful and refreshing blog and that if needed, I can help out with Qual functions such as providing a reference or something of that sort, if it’s needed. There will be a lot of able and wise veterans of the tech coming here, I’m sure, but if there’s anything I can do to help support the furtherance of standard tech, let me know.

Great article and very relevant. GAT with all its evaluation killed a lot of auditors. Time to rehab them!

A great start to the blog, Lana.

Anyone can audit, and should be encouraged to do so – the rewards are fantastic

I believe that might be the major difference between how LRH trained auditors and how the current Church does under Miscavige. With LRH the student was gotten into the chair and auditing and producing results ASAP so he would have wins as an auditor and develop ability and certainty in the tech. Compare that to the current auditor training in the Church. Totally different. No wonder it takes years and so many don’t make it.

“As the only crime in the universe seems to be to communicate, and as the only saving grace of an awareness of awareness unit is to communicate, we can readily understand that an entanglement of communication is certain to result. What we should understand – and much more happily – is that it can now be resolved.”
