Methods of Word Clearing
I will be explaining some technical procedures, concepts and drills so that if you run accross someone using the word, you know what they mean.
I will start with Word Clearing. I will now M7 you. lol
Methods of Word Clearing:
On occasion someone might use a term here M1, M2, M3, so forth. So I decided to add a thread on some basic technical stuff.
M1 is the same as Method 1, M2 is Method 2, etc.
Method 1: An auditing procedure used to clear up bypassed charge (negative energy) associated with all misunderstood words from all of life prior to the procedure. Basically the auditor asseses (reads out) a list of subjects and then takes the ones that read (have a response on the emeter) and directs the person to find the words he didn't understand. This is done until the person has a floating needle (positive response on the emeter showing no bpc) throughout the list. The list is somewhat out of date as it includes some very non-common subjects (eg Theosophy) but the auditor also asks for any subjects the preclear has studied. So the list end up customized for the pc.
Method 2: Reading out loud while on the emeter. This procedure is one that is supposed to A) find any word the pc has charge on from not understanding and clear them up and 2) find any words not understood as shown by the person not being able to read the material perfectly. Probably the most grueling form of word clearing there is. Before someone can get a method 2 word clearing he must have had method 1.
Method 3: Finding a munderstood by tracking back to the area a student first started having problems and finding the word right before that the student didn't understand. Done well, this is quick and easy. This method is also the method a student is supposed to use himself to find the words he didn't understand.
This is what someone means (or meant for those that left :P) when they said "M3 the passage."
Method 4: Checking for misunderstood words in a section or page by having the student concentrate on the page and then asking him if he misunderstood a word while checking his response on an emeter. Probably the quickest of the methods that use the emeter.
Method 5: Checking for misunderstood words by asking the student to define random words contained in a text.
Method 6: Checking for misunderstood words in a subject by asking the student to define a set of key words from a list. This also can be done before the student studies the actual subject so that he will have an easier time studying it.
Method 7: Checking for misunderstood words by reading aloud. Unlike the other methods, when a word is found, the person working with the student actually defines the words for the student, explaining in his own words rather than having the student look up the words. This is done with people studying in a language not their original and for younger students or with someone who is brand new to the subject.
Often used as a slang term when someone is defining a word for someone else regardless of where this is occuring. EG "Can you M7 me on what expeditious is?" "Expeditious means doing something quickly in the minimum number of steps." "Ok, thanks."
Of course if the person explaining it gets it wrong, now 2 people have a misunderstood word.
Method 8: The most complete form of word clearing. This is take a list of all words in a text or passage and actually looking up each word in the dictionary and clearing it fully before the student ever reads the text or passage. The idea is that the person, having cleared up all the words, will be able to read it and understand it perfectly.
Method 9: The most grueling of the unmetered methods of word clearing, this is reading aloud without an emeter. It is the same as method 2 basically but without the meter. Have the student read aloud and if he doesn't read it perfectly, find the word he didnt understand and have them look it up.
This is done often on a twinned basis. Student A m9s paragraph 1, student B paragraphs 1 and 2, student A paragraphs 2 and 3 and so forth until the text is completed. This is called "Round Robining." This is the same method used by students co-auditing procedures. (Student A audits B on the first action, Student B audits A on the 1st and 2nd, A audits B on the 2nd and 3rd and so forth.)
