Show # 2 – Clearing the Reactive Mind

The Reactive Mind is that part of the human mind that operates on a totally stimulus response basis. This show explains how it effects you and how clearing the Reactive Mind can totally change the individual for the better.

The word Dianetics is derived from the Greek dia, meaning “through,” and nous, “mind or soul.” Dianetics is further defined as “what the soul is doing to the body.” When the mind adversely affects the body, it is described as a psychosomatic condition. Psycho refers to “mind or soul” and somatic refers to “body.” Thus, psychosomatic illnesses are physical illnesses caused by the soul.

The reactive mind is not under the individual’s volitional control, and exerts force and the power of command over his awareness, purposes, thoughts, body and actions. The reactive mind does not store memories as we know them. It stores particular types of mental image pictures called engrams. Engrams are a complete recording, down to the last accurate detail, of every perception present in a moment of partial or full “unconsciousness.”

“Unconsciousness” could be caused by the shock of an accident, anesthetic used for an operation, the pain of an injury or the delirium of illness. During these times, the analytical mind shuts down in full or in part and the reactive mind cuts in, in full or in part. An engram exists below the individual’s awareness level yet it can be activated so as to enforce its content and can cause unevaluated, unknowing and unwanted fears, emotions, pains and psychosomatic illnesses.

In Dianetics procedure, the individual recounts an incident of “unconsciousness” from beginning to end until the engram is reduced, which means all the charge or pain is taken out of an incident, or erased, which means the incident has vanished forever. In either case, the individual is free of the aberrative effect of the incident and can experience enormous relief and a rise in emotional tone. That is the miracle of Dianetics.

In Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, L. Ron Hubbard writes: “The source of aberration has been found to be a hitherto unsuspected sub-mind which, complete with its own recordings, underlies what Man understands to be his ‘conscious’ mind. The concept of the unconscious mind is replaced in Dianetics by the discovery that the ‘unconscious’ mind is the only mind which is always conscious. In Dianetics this sub-mind is called the reactive mind.”


Show # 1 – Course Orientation

This first show in the Anatomy of the Human Mind Course series will orient you to the remaining shows, including some “man-on-the-street” interviews of how the average person defines the human mind. This course is based in part on the works of L. Ron Hubbard, the author of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health and the founder the Scientology. This course explains in detail how the human mind really works.


Human Mind Course – Introduction to Dianetics

The fact is, there is a single source of all your stress, unhappiness and self-doubt. It’s called the reactive mind—the hidden part of your mind that stores all painful experiences, then uses them against you. Dianetics will show you what and where this source is, and will show you how to handle it. Thus putting you in full control of your life—and this is the only thing in the world that actually accomplishes this.

The first episode gives a brief overview of Dianetics, which exposes the secret to handling stress, anxiety and self-doubt. If you’ve ever felt there was something holding you back in life, ruining your plans and stopping you from being who you want to be… you were right.

As the author, L. Ron Hubbard, put it in the book Self Analysis: “A good Dianetic auditor can take a broken-down, sorrow-drenched lady of thirty-eight and knock out her past periods of physical and mental pain and have on his hands somebody who appears to be twenty-five—and a bright, cheerful twenty-five at that.”— L. Ron Hubbard

This first show is a short introduction to the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, which is the basis of this podcast The Anatomy of the Human Mind Course. The original course was developed by L. Ron Hubbard, the author of Dianetics, in 1961. This is a TV version of the course, which continues to air on Public Access TV channels around the country. The course explains in simple terms how the human mind really works.
