1. A series of charged events that are related in some way. The way(s) in which they are related is determined by how the preclear has connected them mentally.
With the help of an auditor, the preclear looks for earlier-similar events so that underlying moments that caused the trauma or hold it in place can be relieved of the hold they have. By locating and auditing the earliest and most painful moments in the chain, the incidents lose their power over the preclear.
Celeste has chronic back pain. In session, Celeste tells her auditor about a time she had to sit through a long staff meeting with debilitating back pain. Auditor asked for an earlier similar incident and Celeste recalls a time she got elbowed in the back while playing basketball, getting the wind knocked out of her. She recalls an even earlier incident where her back was injured after falling from a ladder. These incidents form a chain because they are each related in regards to Celeste’s chronic back pain.« Back to All Definitions
