If you have had the opportunity to receive OT auditing while in the Church of Scientology, you have been thoroughly indoctrinated about not attempting to handle entities on your own or even thinking of entities outside of session.
As a result there are too many OTs with impressive certs who still have a great many confusions about entities. I know of many successful Scientologists who had mixed or bad results on their OT levels and who never were sure about the validity of what they experienced.
Other OTs still seemed to have working service facs which they dramatized frequently.
Also, for years, I kept running into OTs who whined about life situations they seem to be stuck in. A “whining OT” is an incredible contradiction – until one learns that unhandled entities will produce this behavior.
It now appears to me that a lack of training lies at the bottom of these unfortunate situations and prevents those affected from achieving the results that can be gained on these levels.
In doing OT repairs on OTs as an independent practitioner where I can audit the pc in front of me and handle what concerns him or her, a couple of things kept coming up again and again.
1. It became obvious that their OT course supervisors had crashing misunderstoods on the OT materials and had passed them on to these student OTs!
Since these OT were not permitted to talk about their experiences with each other, there was little likelihood that they could clear up their confusions.
2. Many of these OTs were just not aware that most of the emotions and attitudes they were dramatizing came from entities in their space. Some were not aware that their actions were being directed every day by active entities.
When you hear an OT complaining about his treatment in the church and his negative feelings about auditing, you should be aware that his entities may have been heavily invalidated and have been given wrong items which have never been addressed.
Yes, the preOT has been invalidated by the rote auditing he received, but the entities also get stirred up and the charge is never handled because the auditor is too busy chasing down the PCs withholds to check ownership.
Everything you experience in course, in session or in life, affects you and your entities.
If you are not thoroughly trained to recognize and handle entities when they affect your life, you are quite likely to give yourself wrong items and wrong indications.
In the church we once were a part of, complaints and natter were a sure sign of missed withholds based on this type of reference:
1. sometimes pcs who have big overts become highly critical of the
auditor and get in a lot of snide comments about the auditor. Such
natter always indicates a real overt. (HCOB 7 Sept 64 II)
2. Natter and 1.1 remarks means a withhold. (HCOB 15 Oct 74)
These references are still true and natter always means a withhold is being restimulated, but whose withhold is being missed?
If you can just broaden your viewpoint for a moment, you can see that these references also apply to entities
If something is restimulating an entity’s withhold you get the full missed withhold phenomena. Entities are living beings and they are committing overts every day in an effort to solve long ago problems.
The person who is clear no longer has his own reactive mind or pictures but due to entities can become quite confused as he experiences their pictures and emotions and believes them to be his own. The entity with a missed withhold puts out a guilty feeling and the pc experiences the guilt as though it was a missed withhold of his own. (Except he probably doesn’t know why he feels so guilty.)
If the entity’s picture contains a somatic, the person can experience the somatic and it can be extremely painful and disabling. Many OTs I have known will complain of aches and pains sicknesses and never realize that they have entities acting up.
Do not ignore grumpy entities, if left unhandled, they can sour your whole day. 🙁
When OTs are coached into recognizing and handling entities with the idea of “How can I help you?”, they find that they will start getting live communication where none were apparent before.
If you have ever tried to solo audit and could not get the needle to read in spite of your best efforts, take a look at your attitude and your considerations about entities. Treat them as live beings and bring them to present time with a comm cycle that grants them beingness.
If you approach entities with the idea that they may be trying to help you in some way, you will grant them importance and you will see them come up to present time and blow charge.
If you have your own private SIR system, you might want to look up “natter” and “entities” and apply what you find to entities as well as big thetans with bodies. You might find that this opens a new door to handling life.
