Finding your way after leaving the cult of Scientology

NOTHING could have prepared me…

Here is another classic GAT adventure from Theodora Farnsworth. I am sure it will answer some of your questions about GAT auditing.

ff_robot_therapistNOTHING could have prepared me for what I was about to experience. After years of training, I was about to go into session as a GAT auditor for the very first time.

Student Hat, Pro TRs, Upper Indoc TRs, Pro Metering and a good part of the Level Zero Course were behind me.

My twin and I had been drilling – and drilling and drilling and drilling – the procedure for flying ruds. The GAT drills were very thorough.

First you sat and said the commands to a wall until you could do it flawlessly from memory.

Next you did the “What do you do?” drills.

“You’ve just started the session. The PC’s needle isn’t floating. What do you do?” your twin droned at you. You had to respond instantly with the correct answer or get a “Flunk!”

Pages and pages and pages of questions like this. The whole drill was passed only when all the questions were answered perfectly, with no comm lag.

Then came the scripted GAT drills. Again, pages and pages of various scenarios all geared to train the student on the procedure for flying someone’s ruds.

You sat with your meter in front of you. The “PC” was a huge stuffed doll, sitting across from you. Your twin sat next to you, running the GAT simulator, an electronic device connected to your meter. By pressing various buttons on the simulator, your twin could make your meter display the reads called for by the GAT script.

You had to have your TRs in, operate the meter flawlessly, keep worksheets and control the session from start to finish. If you made one mistake and got a “Flunk!”, you had to keep going to the end of the drill and then start all over again. Only when you could get through the drill perfectly with no flunks were you given a “Pass!”

The final GAT drills allowed the coach to get creative. The drill book gave suggestions for scenarios but this time without a script. It was up to the coach to mock up what the “PC” was going to say and do and use the simulator to create appropriate needle reactions. When the student auditor demonstrated that he could handle all the situations listed in the drill book, he received a “Pass!”

I had done these drills until I was sick of them. I knew them all by heart and felt like a robot doing them.

Questions regarding Scientology vs Spiritual Rescue Technology

scn-srtSome of you may know that I was delivering NOTs and other standard Scientology Bridge actions in the field beginning in early 2010. My clients did well and some are still on my lines today, but as time went by, I began to see that although NOTs made my clients feel better, all of them were not becoming more spiritually aware.

Some were and still are grateful for the service I was delivering, but some were not really becoming more able to handle entities on their own. While working with one client who was experiencing body difficulties from the actions of an entity, I was surprised to hear her say, “I think he is trying to help me!” That started the process of discovery which resulted in Spiritual Rescue Technology.

I asked myself if beings were trying to help us, why should we be getting rid of them as so much garbage to be discarded? OT 3 and NOTs is all about getting rid of entities by any means possible. This is not auditing in any sense of the word, it is forced disconnection and some of you will know how that feels.

Spiritual Rescue Technology (SRT) is all about the methodology of rescuing beings from the incidents they are stuck in and bringing them to present time and putting them to work if they are interested in doing so. It was developed and is still being expanded with the help of dozens of friends and volunteers.

One of my new clients who knows SRT raised some questions on the differences between Scientology and Spiritual Rescue Technology. The answers may be enlightening to those of you who have not compared SRT and Scientology yet.

I have answered her questions on a point by point basis:

Introducing John Joseph aka Plain Old Thetan

POT-Icon-160I want to introduce you to the friend we lost this week. The man behind the Plain Old Thetan avatar.

Now that Tony Ortega has written a tribute to John on his blog, I can now release some photos of his last years in Tucson.

These are a series of photos taken at John’s Sunday Services in Tucson. He sent them to me when we joined forces on the Possibly Helpful Advice blog. You can see his enthusiasm for his subject matter and the caring attitude he showed toward people reaching for the tech.

He was a great friend to many and although he was an absolute master of Scientology Tech, he supported me in my research for a better technology that anyone could do for themselves. He will be missed but not forgotten.

JJ-1This is John in full lecture mode. He was an enthusiastic speaker and engaged his audiences.In the Eighties, when he was on staff at the South Bay Mission in Manhattan Beach he was a favorite lecturer there too. Hie enthusiasm for the tech was contagious. He influenced many students who went on to become auditors.
