Finding your way after leaving the cult of Scientology

I remember when Scientology was actually fun

Easily Confrontable 🙂

Those of us who received auditing and training more than 20 years ago can remember the incredible joy of 24/7 out of body living and watching miracles take place almost every day.

I remember going from an introverted, cynical, and embittered middle-aged man to a gentle and loving person after being run on a certain  repair list in Life Repair.

Driving home from that session was a hoot because my peripheral vision had opened up and I could see far off both sides of the road while focused on the center line. I had no idea what was going on, but I knew that something had changed in my life.

I still remember the first time that women started hugging me as a friendly greeting. It blew my mind that men and women could actually be affectionate in a non-sexual way. That phenomenon continues to this very day. It still surprises me when I meet someone for the first time and after a short conversation they reach out to give me a hug as a parting greeting.

My Life Repair started slow and ended rather spectacularly,  leaving me a different person with all sorts of whole track recall on people I was meeting in daily life.

It changed things for me in a big way when  I started being able to recognize people I had known before. The instant attractions and enmities I had experienced for many years started making sense for the first time.

I saw the value of training in my very first exposure to Scientology.  A most ordinary and non-charismatic staff member engaged me in conversation after a frankly disappointing Personality Test review. She asked me something along the lines of, “Is anything stopping you in life?” and I unloaded forty years of disappointment and loss in one go with tears streaming down my face.

When I ran down, she asked me, “What would your life be like if you could handle that?” The words poured out of me in a torrent and I cried tears of relief at the thought of actually being able to change my life for the better.

The noteworthy part of this was that I was most interested in how she got trained to do what she had just done. When she said, “I’m an auditor and I got my training here”. I finally knew what I wanted to do with my life. That was in the mid-Seventies and I spent the next twenty years getting trained and auditing others.

That was then and things have changed since then…

As time went on, I saw more emphasis on pushing stats than on freeing beings and I finally withdrew from active connection with the Church of Scientology.

In recent years I have seen a growing gulf in reality between those who have had life-changing gains from Scientology in past years and those who have “progressed” to the upper levels with little or no case gain. Quicky actions, and invalidative case actions have shortchanged those who sought freedom.

A person who has never experienced case gain or past lives from Scn processing has every reason to believe from personal experience that it is all a scam.  Powered by hope alone, the members of this latter group are easy prey to doubts since they have no stable data that the tech actually works.

When I read about Sea Org members with years of service and no real auditing, I see a betrayal of the worst kind on the part of Int Mgmt.

One of the best things that will happen is when the independent field offers repair actions for all case levels. Sometimes it doesn’t take much. The right indication can rehabilitate heavily invalidated case states.

If independent Scientologists continue to grow in numbers and in strength, those who have been denied gains because of out-tech will have a chance to get the gains they are capable of.

Saving the field is what its all about. A distributed model of service may be the future if the CofS is not reformed.

Oh, I remember those days so very well. Like you, I had a life-changing Life Repair and can remember pinching myself because I felt so good, so calm and so happy. It was one of the very best things that ever happened in my whole life. Thanks for posting this!

Thank you for doing this weblog, my friend. May our comrads who are still “in” see the light and come join us. We will help them through the transition. It is not an easy one. But it gets easier, and eventually they will say (as we did), “What took me so long?” They have no idea that they can go free out here. They will never go free “in there.”

Everything you said about auditing and training I could relate to. The only part I did not experience was the ’70’s phenomenon of CofS being a fun place. However, I did thoroughly enjoy my associations with theta scientologists who lived in the LA Area. The things they told me….. 🙂

I went Clear in the Freezone with a very straightforward chain running process which cost me not more than $1500. The freedoms and response-abilities I have are greater in the Freezone than they would be in CofS. Going Clear is a quantum leap forward relative to the releases I had along the way. The next quantum leap is to become an auditor who helps people go Clear.

However, a few days ago I read that the Buffalo Org made two new Clears and I applauded them. I hope the Buffalo Org goes independent and keeps making good Clears without interference from DM.

Thank you for joining your and my theta buddy, Anita 🙂 Her center is an oasis of theta training and auditing.

This indicates sooooo much! I remember when my mother completed OT III back in the late 70’s when I was a kid. She came home and her face had completely changed. She had been a peevish, short-tempered woman before that, and suddenly here was this face full of sunshine and fun. It was a lasting gain. I remember thinking, wow! That’s Scientology! Sign me up! When CofS lost sight of that mission and it became about the stats and the dollars, the ship began to sink. I was also in the S.O. as a very young person (for over a decade). I sought out a student auditor on the Briefing Course who audited me through Grades and I knew the tech worked for myself. But I observed so many other young S.O. members who had no reality on what we were really doing. They seemed to think it was all about the power trip. I am so very heartened the hear of the thousands of “indies” out in the field delivering standard tech and making Clears. Real Scientologists taking up the banner and offering real help! I have renewed faith that we can clear this planet!

Dear AnonIndie,
What we have done in the field today is to recreate that incredible excitement from going free and helping others go free.

I audit people on expanded OT levels every day and watch them change like your mother did. If you would like to get a glimpse of what we have done to allow you to get gains for yourself, check out this website: http://spiritual-rescue-technology.com/

We took the workable technology of the 1950s and used it as Ron suggested to build a better Bridge.
