Scientology Indoctrination is Hypnotism

LRH Close upScientology indoctrination is hypnotism of the worst kind

The disintegration of the cult of Scientology will not free those who have been hypnotized by the skillful indoctrination that Ron Hubbard used to put people under his control and make them resist any recovery from that state.

I have been aware for some time that there were unknown forces preventing some people from observing and absorbing any new data. A recent article by Marty Rathbun shows that others are recognizing what we have been writing about for some time.

Deconstructing Scientology
Posted on September 13, 2014 by martyrathbun09

This is an excerpt from an upcoming book with the working title ‘Deconstructing Scientology.’  It is directed toward those who are considering the possibility of dipping a toe into dianetics or scientology study or participation.  My failures over the past three years in attempting to help former members graduate from the subject informed a whole new line of research into some of the darker arts that L. Ron Hubbard mastered to make people so apparently incapable/unwilling to learn.  


The most diabolically effective form of hypnotism would probably thoroughly convince the subject that it was impossible to hypnotize him.  It seems that only in that case could the idea be implanted that no awakening and de-hypnotism would ever be desirable or even possible. It would inculcate the opposite of the old adage applicable to any reform, or even education, activity that the first step to recovery or learning is the recognition that there is something to recover from or to learn.  If you were thoroughly convinced that you were more awake than virtually all of humanity, there is no chance that anyone could convince you to possibly take a look at waking up.

Some of the worst examples of this can be found in those who have attested to OT8 completion. Their indoctrination is so complete that they are unable to spot that they are surrounded by entities who cause them to lie and to fail at life in other more subtle ways.

A whining OT is an oxymoron and yet you can observe many OTs and OT8s complaining about their spouses, jobs and their superiors just like the lowly “wogs” who have never sampled Scientology.

Those of you who have never attained the rarified OT levels do not know how fortunate you are. You have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and you still have most of your sanity left.

Workable Spiritual Technology – decline and resurrection

This post was first published over a year ago but the message is still current so I am bringing it to the attention of new readers who may not have seen it the first time around.

Priest-movieWorkable spiritual technology is that part of the entire spectrum of spiritual technology that has been tested by auditors/spiritual practitioners in the field and has been found to produce reliable results.  So much of this has been lost or obscured in recent years that it is hard to find auditors who are familiar with the original work.

Spiritual technology has a long history and Scientology had a short phase between 1950 and 1965 when spiritual activity was actively supported by church management. After that the focus within the church seemed to shift to control of parishioner thoughts and actions. Like many religions before it, the Church of Scientology buried the effective actions that helped people and pushed the grand and glorious vision of great cathedrals and mighty works that would bedazzle the multitudes and bring in money.

As a result of this shift in emphasis, we now have the situation where Scientology’s International Management is awash in corruption, perversion and financial irregularities on every hand, much like the Vatican which is the central governing body of the Catholic Church,

There are still useful spiritual resources in the Church of Scientology, but they are as diminished as the Exorcists in the Catholic Church, mere vestiges of a former glory.  According to this story on christianpost.com, priests currently need special approval from their bishop to perform the rite of exorcism and it is rarely granted. Well, to be fair, access to Scientology’s rite of exorcism, the OT Levels, is rarely granted either.

The workable spiritual technology originally developed by Ron Hubbard, David Mayo, Alan Walters and may other professional auditors was altered over the years by arbitrary decisions until it has become a mockery of what it once was.

The very purpose of auditing shifted from setting beings free to become themselves to a rigid pattern of indoctrination that treated a public Scientologist as a potential threat to management so that continual security checking was mandatory at every turn in the road. It is very common to observe that people moving up the Scientology Grade chart become less imaginative and less likely to explore new ideas. Most OTs are quite docile by the time they reach the upper levels and will follow orders without questioning them. This was not what was promised in the early days of Scientology.

A number of independent practitioners have gone back to the original writings of the professional auditors who developed the technology and have recovered the underlying principles that produced results.This original workable technology saves lives and brings man to heights he has rarely experienced before because it was applied for the benefit of the preclear and not for the benefit of an organization.

Most of us use feedback from our preclears to improve the effectiveness of our services. As a result, the technology is still evolving as new discoveries are made and we make use of current communication technology to deliver services when and where preclears want them, no matter where they are on the planet.

Anyone who is looking for the gains that used to be promised by Scientology will find these gains are still being delivered by independent practitioners today. If you are uncertain what to look for in an independent practitioner, read Choosing an Auditor.

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”.
