Lock Scanning in R3X

From a post to the R3X thread on the Freezone America Board:

One way of addressing case is with lock scanning. Some drawbacks to lock scanning, however, include:

1. It is a tedious process, requiring many passes through;
2. It tends to run shallow;
3. Running it can be overwhelming to a heavy case and so cause the track to temporarily occlude.

The positive aspect is that instead of taking one incident at a time as with straight Dianetic auditing, one can handle a whole series of incidents with the same theme.

The way to have the positives in this case, while leaving the negative aspects, behind is to incorporate the 6-Dir process. A typical session incorporating lock scanning might sound like this:

A = auditor
P= Pc (processee)

Pc's marriage is in trouble and needs to be addressed and scanned out:

A. How long have you been married?
P. 12 years.
A. Okay, I'd like for you to get the concept of that whole period of time with regards to your marriage.
P. Yes, I've done that.
A. Good. Now I'd like you to take that segment of time regarding the marriage and put it above you.
P. Yes.
A. Good. Now put it below you.
This continues for all six directions, over and over again - above, below, right, left, front, back, above... etc. until a full EP is reached.

A. Alright. Now move to the beginning of that period of time.
P. Yes.
A. Good. Move through to the end of that period of time with regard to (or "on the subject of") the marriage.
P. Yes. (At this point the Pc will often say that the period was blank or clean, at which time that part of the session is ended.
A. What happened?
P. A few things came up.......

At this point the auditor can decide whether to keep scanning (if it's pretty light) or resume the 6-Dir process.

A. Okay, now I'd like you to take what's left of that segment of time regarding that marriage and put it above you.... (etc.)

This is done until the whole period is flat. Cognitions and changes should abound throughout this procedure. Full EPs should occur. The rules for running narrative R3R apply here except for the inclusion of 6-Dir.

If a lot of the track being run is occluded, you can use the Before/After process a few times to loosen the pictures: "Spot a moment before the _____ (incident, period of time, series of incidents, etc.)" "Spot a moment after the incident"; "Spot a moment before the incident" etc.

Various subject tracks of the Pc's can be scanned out like Scn, religion, mother, father, childhood home, individual friends, etc.

The idea is to clean up this lifetime on various subjects.

This is very good especially for people who have a lifetime filled with locks and secondaries, and running individual incidents would be too time consuming. Also, the 6-Dir process is not as tiring as the R3R procedure, and so the Pc does not get drained of energy as quickly as with R3R.

I just had a brand new client today who knows nothing of Scn or clearing tech and I started her out with this method. First I had her do the 6-Dir process on the charged terminals (husband of four years in this case) and then proceeded as stated above.
