Grade 0 Exercises

Reference: Running Scientology Processes with Subject Clearing

[Note: Before you run these processes, please make sure that you have met the pre-requisites per Scientology Grade Processes.]

These are Grade 0 exercises that are run on oneself with Straight Memory, under the Discipline of Subject Clearing. You simply be there and confront the line of thought required by the process.

Grade 0 processes are supposed to recover a person’s ability to talk to others freely. At this level one is mainly looking at what he is willing to talk about; and what would he like to say to others on that subject.

An important rule is: The worse off the case, the lighter the approach to that case must be. The lighter exercises are given in the section Start Subject Clearing. For a case that is really anxious and not very functional, a calm environment, a feeling of safety, and a lot of rest is the most appropriate thing to do. 

Before you run a process on yourself, you must understand that process clearly. Any confusion about the process should be cleared up. Look up technical words in the Technical Dictionary or in KHTK Glossary.

Make sure you are well fed and well rested before you run the process. The duration of each session should be, at least, 20 minutes, and as long as it is comfortable. End the session at a point where you are not engaged mentally in sorting out something.

When the process says, “Repetitive to EP,” it means that you should remain engaged with the line of thought prescribed by the process as long as you are getting answers. EP is End Phenomena, which means that the process has led you to a big realization with a sudden release of tension; or, there has been a gradual increase in awareness with no more answers coming up.

The same process can be run in different flows: (1) Self to another, (2) Another to self, (3) Others to others, (4) Self to others, (5) Others to self, (6) Another to others, (7) Others to another, and (8) another to another. Some processes require a sequence of commands (bracket) to be run, and then the whole sequence is repeated. 

Keep in mind that some processes may run very fast, and others may not run at all. You may go through these processes several times. Some processes may not run the first time, but may run on a subsequent round.

    Self Analysis provides the easiest gradient of Dianetics application. It uses the Straightwire Approach. The following Subject Clearing exercise uses a list from Self Analysis.

    I shall recommend all Self-Analysis Lists to be run by oneself under the discipline of Subject Clearing for quite some time before any other Dianetics auditing is attempted.

    I remember running these lists in 1970 on a fellow MIT student in the dorm. It was a lot of fun with some great result.

    Two people can support each other by running these Self Analysis lists of questions together. They should take as much time as needed on each question. This should be a lot of fun.

    Read the chapter called PROCESSING SECTION of the Self Analysis book.

    Hubbard repeatedly says, “The material universe is composed of matter, energy, space and time. Life can then be considered to be engaged upon the conquest of matter, energy, space and time, including other life forms, organisms and persons.”
    I believe that life is an intimate part of the configuration of matter, energy, space and time. If life is conquering anything at all, it is conquering itself. There is no contest between life and MEST. The actual contest is between knowing and remaining ignorant.

    I have been running Grade 0 processes on myself quite successfully. It is amazing to realize that an average person can do so anywhere with the subject clearing approach. It just requires some patience and practice. Who knows oneself better than anybody else! That is the super advantage you have.

    You do not have to know anything about the E-meter. That is prop and dependency anyway, and you want to avoid it. You just go by your gut feeling. It may take some trial and error, but with practice and success, you get better and better. Grade zero processes are much easier to do than the Dianetics of DMSMH, or the Straight Memory of SOS. But the knowledge of DMSMH and SOS puts nicely in perspective what you are doing on Grade 0.

    The great shift from Dianetic approach to Straight Memory approach occurred with the publication of Science of Survival in 1951. The first application of Straight Memory was Self Analysis later in 1951. All the Grade processes develop from the Straight Memory approach.

    Grade 0 uses Straight Memory to improve communication with one’s mind and others. It is very important to understand what memory is. Hubbard is incorrect in saying that every living moment is precisely recorded in the mind to the last second, and it is recoverable. This erroneous datum has given loss to almost everybody in recalling.

    Under the Matrix Model of the mind, the goal is to assimilate all perception. Once assimilated there is no “recording” of perception left. Only unassimilated sensations remain as “precise” records and they are mostly unavailable. These are engrams, secondaries and locks. These “records” are waiting to be assimilated.

    Once assimilated, the “memory recall” consists of reconstructed data from the assimilated matrix. When one has the same breakfast day after day, one has a general impression of it. So when recalling a breakfast on a certain day of the year, and the time of the day, is reconstructed from this assimilated impression.

    When bits and pieces of “precise memory” are encountered, there remains something unassimilated about that recording.

    With Straight Memory, one is basically looking at the remaining bits and pieces of unassimilated sensations and assimilating them on a gradient. Grade 0 is the simplest gradient of this process. One needn’t take a loss if one cannot recall precisely. Much of the recall will consist of reconstruction of memory from assimilated impressions. There will be occlusions only where holes exist in these assimilated impressions. These holes will show up as anomalies. The resolution of these anomalies will lead to recordings of unassimilated sensations. Assimilation of such recordings is always accompanied by realization.

    With this knowledge, one can go through the Grade processes very, very fast without the feeling that one is missing something. One may also go through these grade processes again and again with subject clearing approach in a relaxed fashion, if one has the feeling of missing something.
