Ah! I've never experienced an engram per say, but I've definitely experienced touching on past repressed trauma. Real emotional pain. Engrams seem like assigning 'why' to noise. Especially 'puns'. (I'm almost through with reading the book) It seems ridiculous to me, especially because I didn't start seeing puns until I was like 25 (language learning disability).My post was to say that yes, you can get sometimes a lot from auditing. Whether it stays is a different story.
Thanks for explaining that people really do feel better and get wins from Scientology. (although it might not last)
My current beliefs are that although yes many of us absorb and learn from the people around us, It's how we respond that matters the most. We just need self awareness and agency over our selves.
Breaking down the barrier between me and my emotions was just what I needed. Now I can see how I'm treating myself. So now I choose to treat myself with love, respect and naturally in tern treat other people that way too. I think most people treat others how they treat themselves. They just aren't aware of how they are treating themselves.
Hubbard for example lied to himself about things, believed them, and thus spread that to others getting them to lie to themselves so that they could then spread it even further.
