Finding your way after leaving the cult of Scientology

OT Repair Success Story

I am fortunate in that I am able to deliver services to people who do not fit comfortably into the Church of Scientology sausage machine. I work daily with those who have had last lifetime experience with the church or who came into the church with abilities that the church was not prepared to recognize.

As a result, I get to experience the miracles of what auditing can achieve every day. Here is a recent success story from an OT Repair action:

David, I want to thank you so much for the work you have put into helping get up to the levels of OT that before I met you I had only dreamed of (at least for this life).

I have progressed thru the OT levels at a rapid rate with no stops on my progress from you in my auditing, only help and support to not only get me there but to keep me there even when I objected and objected and objected and would not in some cases acknowledge my gains.  Mainly because if you read the Church literature and talk to the Church staff, they would tell you what I have achieved in just a short time is impossible.  Well I am here to tell you, IT is not impossible.

Recently I began to have doubts as to my abilities gained.  What had really happened was, I had gone so exterior that I was having trouble controlling my body at such a distance.  This in itself made me question my very existence as an OT.  

Now, with your help in an OT repair session I no longer have the doubts and am willing to accept myself as a able Operating Thetan.  Honestly, where I am on the bridge doesn’t really matter to me now, as I know that is only a perspective set up by the Church and I honestly feel I am above that criteria at this point.

I could go on and on about how I feel (which is great and big at the same time), however suffice to say,  DAVID THANK YOU!!!

If you feel you need a repair, send me an email. I might be able to help you. If not, I will refer you to someone who can.

Always wonderful to hear of a win from an OT service.

Good job, both of you.

“… people who do not fit comfortably into the Church of Scientology sausage machine.”

Someone’s been reading my mail !

Joe, I have just been around long enough to realize that we auditors were doing it wrong while we were in the church. Our intentions were the best and we worked long hours with little recognition from management, but we were told that there was only one way to audit a preclear and that all cases responded the same.

This is not true. I have never seen two cases that came apart the same way and I have seen many OTs who never handled what they came into Scientology to handle.

When you are being run on what the C/S says you need and are not handling what you wanted to handle, the action of auditing creates by-passed charge. Your needs are being invalidated while incidents that are *not* in restim are being stirred up and run.

“Honestly, where I am on the bridge doesn’t really matter to me now, …”

That is is great statement! That is how I felt after one “intro session” with OldAuditor. So I know exactly how you feel.

David, I have a slightly different take on this, so I word it differently. I’m not so sure I’m eager to say that “we were doing it wrong” as much as “it could have been done more completely and thus more correctly”.

It starts with the statement “There is one tech and that is standard tech”. That comes from Flag Order 800 31 May 1968 SCIENTOLOGY TECHNOLOGY, which migrated into HCO PL 31 May 1968.

The rote non-comprehension of that statement has led to technical laziness in the church.

I believe that laziness has led that phrase to be misinterpreted as “there is one kind of case and that is the standard case”.

I have argued before that the belief that there are only “standard cases” addressable only with “standard tech” is a big problem.

For example, I was out-Int in the 1950s. Horribly out-Int.

There was no Interiorization Rundown until around 1970.

Does that mean that application of 1969 tech to my case was the only way to address my case? What?!? No?!?

No, new tech had to be developed to address my condition with Standard Dianetics.

But later, it was discovered that even if a person had run an Int Rundown he might need more Int handlings. So the End of Endless Int Repairs Rundown was developed and issued in 1978.

I discovered in auditing others, being audited, and C/Sing others that a big bugbear in Int handlings was PAST LIFE AUDITING. You see, I was run on single-flow Dianeitcs in the ’50s. This lifetime, I was given an Int Rundown quad-flows. LRH says that if you start running quad flows (of ANYTHING) without “quadding up the pc” first, you restimulate the unrun flows from the items that were run single-flow. Which totally messes up the action you’re trying to run quad-flow now.

This presents a huge Problem: You have a pc who’s out-int sitting in front of you. You want to do an Int Rundown. But STANDARD TECH says you have to quad up the pc before he is run on quad flows on an Int Rundown. But STANDARD TECH tells you not to run anything on a pc but Int when Int is out! So therefore, YOU CAN’T USE STANDARD TECH ON THE PC IN FRONT OF YOU WITHOUT BREAKING SOME KIND OF “RULE”. All because the guy was audited in a previous lifetime!

Or because he was run on Book One Dianetics this lifetime and no one kept a folder for the guy so you don’t know what “items” were run, which doesn’t matter, because, they guy can’t be quadded up at this point anyway!

A similar track exists with Drug Rundowns. So much so, that OT IV is nicknamed the “OT Drug Rundown” in some circles.

I believe that the belief that “all the tech that needed to be developed has been developed” is probably an idee fixe.

With the result that not enough cases were addressable with “standard tech”.

Remember DMSMH and “Standard Procedure”? 1951 tech? Turns out that those approaches to Clearing worked as-is on a certain number of people. But then people started showing up with other problems, like drug cases. So new tech had to be developed for them.

Then, horror of horrors, people started showing up who had practiced Dianetics and Scientology in a former life. Trying to rotely cookie-cutter fit them onto the “standard Bridge” didn’t work.

Hence the Jason Beghe story. Jason probably should have had a clearly delineated route to go to make it back onto the Bridge where he dropped off of it in a previous life. But the “one size fits all” approach to dealing with people in Scientology Inc didn’t allow that to happen. Especially if it meant that a guy would be routed from CC up to the AO, along with all his money.

I’ll give another example, which is that someone I know finished OT VIII with horrible body somatics. That person had had hundreds of hours of repairs and sec checks but still the somatics remained. He’d been to all kinds of medicos, none of which could find the problem and correct it medically.

Now, I have to ask: “are the body somatics case or are they actual physical body problems?” and “how can you tell the difference?” There are simple problems where, let’s say, a person shows up with an 4-inch nail in their skull. (http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2012/01/21/x-ray-reveals-nail-in-mans-brain/) So you do the “standard” Scientology handling: get him medical assistance first. After 12 months and three operations, the guy is ready to start his auditing. But he still has somatics. “That’s all right” you say “you can get somatics handled with NED”. So the guy audits through NED case completion and still has somatics. So you give him Expanded Dianetics and he attests Clear. But he still has somatics. So you ignore the somatics and push him up through OT III, and he somehow manages to complete that. Still has somatics. OT IV & OT V follow, and still he has head somatics.

Suddenly we’re in between a rock and a hard place. The technology says we have a clear with somatics, which is a PR problem, because we can’t run any more NED on him. But he says the somatics are ruining his life and livingness. So he’s not really qualified to go onto OT VI and OT VII and OT VIII.

The big-picture quandary? As it takes longer and longer for people to go up the Bridge, the pcs get older, and the more likely it is they’ll develop body problems that are JUST BODY PROBLEMS. Oooops.

Thanks for filling in the gaps of my once over lightly treatment.

The phrase “doing it wrong” was used in the engineering sense where the expected result was not obtained. Engineers expect to keep doing something and adjusting things until they get the expected result consistently. Maybe this is no longer true today, but a competent engineer would expect some failures until all variables are identified and understood.

As long as research continues and honest observations are accepted, we will see continuing improvement in the tech that was used in the church of Scientology during its years of greatest growth.
