Including what we found in Scientology before it became a cult

The biggest barrier to moving on after Scientology

overbordI have spent the last 7 years helping people get on with their lives after they leave Scientology. All of my clients have experienced desirable changes, but a few have not been able to achieve a major transformation from a grim survival state to an expansive attitude toward life and an increased ability to generate income.

The one common factor in clients who could not easily transform their session wins into life changing actions was that they had been Sea Org members. Their life in the Sea Org has proved to be the biggest barrier to personal recovery after leaving Scientology.

I considered this variation in long term results challenging because almost all clients experienced similar wins in session. My approach has always been to address what the clients wanted to handle, so all clients were dealing with what they considered most important. If this is so, why then do some clients experience daily wins but continue to grind away in life situations which are visibly non-optimum?

I found this divergence to be a continuing and observable factor even as my practice evolved from Scientology-based processing to Spiritual Rescue Technology which starts where the OT levels leave off.

In other words, the divergence in long term results continued even when processing evolved from treating the client as a spirit in a body to treating the client as a spirit in a body surrounded by a host of other spirits who worked in cooperation or opposition to the spirit running the body.

What was more puzzling was the fact that this divergence appeared in people who had left the church as long as 20 years ago. The one common factor in those who could not seem to change their basis of operation even after extensive auditing was that they had spent years in the Sea Org.

The Sea Org indoctrinates its members to suppress their first and second dynamics. Any first dynamic activity is considered as “having other fish to fry” and is scorned and made less of. Second dynamic activities like family time, sex, and child rearing will incur condemnation and even security checking because they take attention off the avowed mission of “Clearing the Planet”.

The continual invalidation of these two vital dynamics creates a being who is almost completely other-determined, no matter how proudly he or she asserts they are “on purpose”.

As a result, when the person finally breaks free of the Sea Org as the abuse and degradation raises their necessity level, they are often at a loss as to how to rebuild their lives. Through grim determination, most find a way to support themselves in the real world outside the church, but they rarely realize how indoctrinated they became as Sea Org members.

They often work for Scientology firms and have Scientology friends and they rarely, if ever, realize they were in a cult and were brainwashed. They can form relationships and get married and still not realize they are operating with crippled first and second dynamics.

Even after they break free of the church entirely and are declared as SPs, they do not realize the extent of the damage they have done to their first and second dynamics.

They still feel guilty about taking time for leisure activities and self improvement and they may even feel guilty about letting Ron down and not clearing the planet. They find it easy to take jobs where they are given orders and subjected to  restrictions on what they must do or say.

They really find it hard to insist on having the freedom to do what they want. I see them doing things they do not want to do out of a misplaced sense of duty and grumbling about their situation, but not changing it. They are still bound by restraints on their actions that they do not see and cannot change. This causes them to target others as opponents and can even make them engage in non optimum activities in an effort to get themselves out of the financial rut they find themselves in.

The only solution I have seen is to address the damaged dynamics directly and handle all of the times that the person and his entities compromised their integrity to be part of a group. The Sea Org and the Hitler Youth and countless other cult-like organizations achieved their cohesiveness by restimulating the many times on the track when being part of a group was the only way to survive. These engramic incidents act upon a being and make it easy to succumb to a present-day group that pushes the right “duty” and “purpose” buttons.

Addressing the engrams associated with becoming part of and leaving a group provides a partial relief to the person who has been exposed to the Sea Org, but a complete handling requires addressing ones spiritual entities with similar engrams.

If you were in the Sea Org, you will recover your first and second dynamics only when you and all beings in your space are rescued from the incidents that your Sea Org career restimulated.

If you can find an independent auditor delivering NOTs, you can probably get help with this. If you wish to learn about Spiritual Rescue Technology (SRT), you may be able to do something about this state of affairs on your own. If you wish to have help recovering your first and second dynamics, you can also contact me.

Where are all the auditors?

confusionI get letters every week asking me for information about connecting up with Independent Scientologists and how to get auditing. This would seem to confirm that people are no longer fixating on the sorry state of Scientology, Inc. and instead are working on their own spiritual enhancement. That is the good news.

The bad news is that there are only a handful of auditors to serve a growing horde of people seeking spiritual enhancement without invalidation, coercion or abuse. I believe there are less than 20 groups in the US delivering services based on Scientology and Dianetic principles and  a slightly larger number of groups in the rest of the world. To the best of my knowledge, there is only one organization of any size delivering Scientology-based services and that is Ron’s Org with headquarters in Grenchen, Switzerland.

The secret of their success may lie in this description of the structure of Ron’s Org

An essential reason why the Church of Scientology failed was its structure. It was built up hierarchically, lost control over itself and wound up in a dictatorial, suppressive system which used people instead of serving them.

We in the Ron’s Org want to learn from these mistakes and have organized ourselves in a loose network. There are different groups in different cities and countries which offer auditing and training. These groups are in contact with each other, but they are fully autonomous. They help each other and exchange information about their work or their projects. There is no senior, leading authority in the Ron’s Org.

Once a year there is a big convention where free Scientologists from all over the world meet each other.

On the other hand, there are a number of independent practitioners who have taken the basic principles of Scientology as defined in the very early 1950′s and developed processes and methodologies far beyond anything the corrupt and dying church has to offer. These practitioners may or may not use Scientology terms to describe what they do but almost all put their clients and preclears ahead of organizational concerns so that their services are for the benefit of the people that come to them for help.

The missing element in the independent field is the lack of centers to train auditors and counselors. Since there are considerable differences in what is considered valid spiritual technology, it is not surprising that this training effort is still in its infancy. Some Indies feel that KSW was the high watermark for standard technology, while others, more enlightened, point to the huge number of contradictions that exist in the many variations of “standard tech” published by Hubbard himself.

Top down command and control organizations tend to stall when the founder dies and Scientology is no different. All knowledge comes from the top and innovation is discouraged. It has been more than 30 years since Ron Hubbard went off the lines and the technology and management attitudes have been frozen since the late 1980s. Every field of medical and spiritual healing has moved forward since then except for Scientology which has become more rigid and more repressive as the years have gone by.

In a highly connected marketplace, no business, religious, or spiritual movement can survive without keeping tabs on what their customers want and how they feel about the services they are receiving from the organization. Scientology has walled itself up behind barriers and forbids the flow of knowledge in or out except for that approved by increasingly isolated leadership. Therefore their messaging is rejected by more and more people as being irrelevant to current needs. This also applies to their technology which has not been updated to handle serious flaws that have been known for years.

Any practicing auditor has known for years that preclears and clients do not come in standard sizes with standard complaints. Therefore the idea of a standard one size fits all Bridge to total freedom has only been a convenient fiction to sell the rubes services on a sequence and schedule that fit the needs of the  organization and not the preclears. Look at any successful independent field practice and you will find that services are highly tailored to the individuals being served. Their organizations are not top heavy with overlapping administrative people and their prices are correspondingly lower. They are also more in tune with the needs of their public and are less hesitant to change so that the public is served as they wish to be served.

The technology being delivered in the field is undergoing a quiet but significant evolution and the end of the process is nowhere in sight. I used to deliver standard NOTs in the field until feedback from clients showed me that we were not meeting the needs of the entities we were handling. It was a major realization and spurred the development of Spiritual Rescue Technology. Other practitioners report continuing evolution of their services and I expect this trend to continue. This means that it will be unlikely that there will be a single counselor training center that will satisfy the needs of the next generations of auditors and counselors.

Technology will probably be part of the solution. Right now there are tens of thousands of spiritual practitioners who deliver counseling over the Internet and a few of them are delivering Scientology-based services. I have been doing this for about 4 years and have clients all over the world. There are several more like me who do the same, so you can get counseling wherever you live as long as you have high speed Internet.

Since the demand for ethical and effective spiritual counseling has grown much faster than the number of trained counselors, there will eventually be some breakthroughs in training as there has been in the delivery of services. We have top- rated Universities delivering degree programs over the Internet, so why won’t we have spiritual counselor training over the Internet? Once this is underway, I predict the number of active auditors and counselors will skyrocket and the thousands of people cut off from church services will find  convenient and lower cost alternatives in the independent field.

You need to achieve expanded abilities and get trained while doing that. Auditing alone leaves you clean and shining until something attacks you out of nowhere. If you are not trained, it can be a long wait before you can get help. Get trained and support your local Independent Scientology auditor or better yet learn about Spiritual Rescue Technology which starts where Scientology left off.

You never know when you will need help from an independent spiritual practitioner. There are more of them available every month.

Ron writes about achieving a state where livingness produces case gain. This state is definitely achievable when people have become OT enough and trained enough that they can spot the source of difficulties when life impinges on them and blow stuff by inspection. If you read that again you will realize that this is not a finite process. You just keep on handling whatever life throws at you.

Think of it as dusting yourself off when life spatters you. There is a lot of crap in the universe and it doesn’t go away when you become OT whatever. You should probably look at this as a long term periodic maintenance routine. Just get yourself up to the level where you can reliably spot and blow stuff by inspection and you will find out why living produces case gain.

Clear Wallet Cert


Motti Morel points out that donations are the lifeblood of the new Church of Miscavige and it was only a matter of time before the church, in all of its wisdom, devised a scheme to ensure continuing donations even when the spirit of self sacrifice falters and thoughts of individual survival emerge.

Historical Background

In the development of the technology of Scientology, Ron tapped into the vast resources of ancient wisdom. He isolated the workable elements, scrubbed away false data and then perfected and streamlined the processes to create the technology we have today.

Such is the case with Confessionals. Enacted in the 13th century by the Catholic Church1, the parishioner would confess his transgressions to an ordained Minister in solitude. The content of the confession would remain confidential between the parishioner and his minister.

Ron perfected this very valuable tech to stress the element of RESPONSIBILITY on the part of the pc. And with the advent of the E-Meter, it became possible for the first time in history to really clean every corner of the overt act and withhold to achieve alleviation of the burden and freedom from the bank.

After the confessional is completed and attested to, one additional step is required: The complete ending of the cycle. A real, concrete, measurable atonement for the sin that would leave the parishioner feeling he has not only unburdened himself, but completely made up the damage and ended cycle on it, thus enabling him to open a new leaf.

The Catholic Church recognized the importance of this step and developed it gradually: In the 13th century these atonements included acts of mercy, pilgrimages, prayers and flagellation. These were transformed in the 14th and 15th centuries into actual financial donations, called INDULGENCIAE. Donation of money is real, concrete and measurable and most importantly – immediate, thus enabling the sinner to promptly end cycle on his sin, rather than having to wait for completion of a pilgrimage or other lengthy procedures.

INDULGENCIAE replaced older, more tedious forms of atonement such as fasting, flagellations and burning at the stake and therefore became vastly popular with the parishioners. So popular, in fact, that a slogan was coined and recited repeatedly at every corner throughout the middle ages:

As soon as the coin in the coffer rings,
The soul from purgatory springs

In our technology, this principle is stated clearly enough in step 3 of Liability formula: Make up the damage one has done by personal contribution far beyond the ordinary demands of a group member.


The Problem

But, as LRH said in HCO PL 3 December 1971, EXCHANGE, “money is a passionate subject”. While most Scientologists willingly paid their donations and proceeded happily on the bridge, there were still those who, when approached by IAS, Ideal Org, Library project or any Church fundraisers, displayed CI’s, BI’s and HE&R. These resulted in ARC breaks and enturbulation which called for further disciplinary actions in ethics, and thus slowed one’s progress on the bridge. In extreme cases, when all measures of rehabilitation failed, it even led to SP declares and expulsion.

This was a non-optimum situation. A breakthrough was needed to quell these rifts so that the number of SP declares could be cut down and more Scientologists would retain their good standing and not be denied their spiritual eternity.

I’m happy to announce that this breakthrough has been attained.

The Solution

It is called The Refusal to Donate Rundown, or RDRD in short.

The Rundown

RDRD is divided into three sections:

  1. Indoctrination

  2. Removing barriers

  3. Training on acquiring money for donations

The first section, INDOCTRINATION, is done in session. It includes Method 1 and Method 2 word clearing on the subjects of money, exchange, Ethics, the Conditions of Existence and critical thoughts about Dear Leader and International Management.

Method 1 is an auditing procedure used to clear up bypassed charge associated with all misunderstood words from all of life prior to the procedure. Basically the auditor assesses (reads out) a list of subjects and then takes the ones that read (have a response on the E-meter) and directs the person to find the words he didn’t understand. This is done until the person has a floating needle throughout the list.

In Method 2 the pc is reading out loud while on the E-meter. 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. Method 2 is delivered after Method 1.

The second section, REMOVING BARRIERS, is also done in session. The process is tailor-made for the individual pc or pre-OT by the C/S in order to address any and all disagreements, considerations and false data on the subject of donations the person may have. After the lists are completed, the pc undergoes a comprehensive Security Check to ensure that nothing was overlooked and that he is now clean as a whistle.

The third section, TRAINING ON ACQUIRING MONEY FOR DONATIONS is done in the Academy by the student from a course pack of the same name. It teaches the student all the ways to extend his credit card limits and acquire additional credit limits, taking a second mortgage on his house and other real-estate assets, deferring loan payments, evading creditors, persuading old relatives to bequeath their wealth to the student in their last will, embezzling funds for the greatest good and other useful ways to acquire money for donations. The student star-rates on all materials and graduates after passing an exam with 100% success.

The action is completed when the pc has paid his donations in full, as demanded, with VGI’s and no HE&R, and has attested to the state of Clear Wallet.


The RDRD can be delivered at any point on the bridge, even in the middle of any other action. It takes precedence over every other action, as without it, no progress can be made on the bridge.

Pilots of RDRD conducted on resistive cases and RPF inmates proved spectacularly successful and salvaged countless thetans from eternal damnation.

The RDRD is a powerful tool to remove every last barrier to the Church’s financial expansion. It will be delivered standardly in Orgs of all classes.

Clear Wallet, Clear Mind.
