One of the nicest qualities of the course is its gentle gradient, even having studied before, it still looked quite a lot to do but it is set up so you don’t fail.
The fact that in the former organization I did some training a while ago and did student auditing on the very lower part of the grades has helped a lot.
But don’t let that put anyone off but rather consider doing some training as one progresses through the OT levels – if not done already.
In pure data terms: This is so much better than in the former set-up (pun intended…) as one has all the data at hand.
It takes some organization and discipline to get time and get the study done and then be sessionable but even with a 55 hour working week, one can still get several sessions in each and every day.
The auditing is something…
A clear illustration: Pick up some cans and try to get the needle to move with thought. If in your training you did e-meter drills or observed people doing so, in order to get reads for training purposes, it can be a bit of a task.
Well, when you go into session and see big reads and tone arm blowdowns and more blowdowns, wide F/Ns, even a Floating Tone Arm in a short session of a few minutes, and are yourself in the middle of this charge coming off, it is really something.
Randy, especially with his training and experience, should be applauded for making this available.
He was very contactable and could direct to me to data for queries easily.
All this, from beginning to getting though the study and onto the sessions and completing; all done at a distance of several thousand miles…
I hope one day to make some difference myself, after all this and doing a little further training and then internships.
But for now even with two jobs this much can be done thanks to Randy.
Steve has been with me now for a few weeks, and is going great guns! As you will see below:
“After auditing on Solo NOTS for a while, I was having trouble staying motivated to go in session. In short, I was finding it an effort to audit the case. And was also feeling like I somehow wasn’t making progress at each session end like I expected – it all became sort of unreal. I was definitely experiencing a Failed Purpose. Honestly, after about 3-4 months, even with CS correction I just stopped! (I felt like I was missing something).
“I now have been auditing for several weeks under Randy Smith (no relation to Ingrid Smith) as my CS. I chose to go with Randy because, not only is Randy a very experienced CS, he also has completed Solo NOTS himself. I felt like these qualifications, Trained & Experienced CS, but also a CS who was themselves On or Completed The Level were important requirements.
“And boy, was I right!
“Plus I personally know someone who Randy is CSing who has expressed to me the kind of wins I’ve always wanted from this level.
“I am now having the wins that I’ve always dreamed Solo NOTS could offer. In a very short time after getting with Randy he directed me to a couple of pieces of LRH NOTS Tech that I had no idea of. This made All The Difference!
“That and the fact that he keeps everything simple and at just the right gradient. His duplication of the entire NOTS Tech is just amazing. And it doesn’t hurt that he has CSed quite a few Pre-OTs through this Level.
“Now my sessions are so simple, so smooth – and I’m getting NOTS needle phenomena during and at sessions end that are exactly what LRH describes for NOTS.
“My space is expanding nicely, and my universe has calmed down, and with each session I feel more and more uptone and free!
“I now feel 100% confident that I will be not only be able to continue to get tremendous wins from each session, but that I am now well on my way to the technical EP of this Rundown, Cause Over Life!
“Thank you LRH for this fabulous gift of New Era Dianetics For OTs. You weren’t exaggerating when you described it as “Living Lightning, the very stuff of Life itself”.
“And thank you Randy for your amazing beingness, care, and your duplication and application of Standard Tech!
“Soo Fired Up!
I’ve been on Solo NOTS for nine-months, and the wins for me have been steady and gradual. You do blow a LOT of charge in minutes, and it grows and grows. It’s work and discipline to keep after it.
Today I hit on something quite special, and the old A=A=A applies here. It blew a confusion that affected all dynamics. It was such a simple thing, yet staggering in impact. It moved me closer to BE. I had never had a win the like of this before.
So onward and upward! 🙂
Thanks to my C/S Randy, and LRH!
My Success on completion of O.T. VII
This is one of the most rewarding levels I have ever done in Scientology.
I have been in Scientology since 1969. I went Clear in 1970 and I was the 2414 th clear in the US. That was the start of this great adventure. Going Clear was a great achievement back then (it still IS!) I never could have known what was next. I went and did an internship as an HSDC (Hubbard Standard Dianetics Course)
Auditor. The next year I came back to L.A. to do OT II and my best friend who was on OT III said to me, “You need to do OT III before you go home”. So I finished OT II and started OT III. I thought Clear changed my Life but OT II and then OT III? Well, there were NO words to say. It blew me away, and 3 months later I came home and my life was changed again. Life was getting better and I was looking at life a lot different now. I knew after OT III that Scientology was the way to O.T.
And so I went back to L.A. Got my Expanded Grades put in and did at the time OT. 4, 5. 6. and the Original OT VII (This was in the ‘70s). That was the whole bridge at that time. I was just blown away. I was released on all this ability. I was a power house. I was doing well in Life
and I said I want to do more. So I talked to a FLAG Registrar and he said “You’ve got to do the L s . Those are the real boosters in Life.”
So I Did L-11 and L-12 at Flag. And that was in 1989 and he was definitely RIGHT. I was making Life go Right in Life. I came home from Flag, at work I was promoted to Manager at a large car dealer and set sales records month after month & all flows were open.
I felt something was missing and that was L10. I wanted that power. I pulled In a Class XII L s auditor. He was amazing. He had just left the Sea Organization on good terms and he said he would be honored to audit
me on L-10. Boy, what a postulate to have an L-10 auditor audit you in your own home! What a major win. And now I thought I was a real
power house. And I was.
I needed more training. My good friend, S. T. , who is class 4 auditor and CS. wanted to do OT. 7 and I needed to do the New OT. 7 – SOLO NOTS , so we were living in the same town, we got together and twinned on part A of OT VII Solo NOTS.
When I saw the material I then realized what I was in for. It seemed a lot to learn but the more I studied the material the easier it got. I became the best auditor I could be. I was glad I had done the Hubbard
Standard Dianetics Internship course, as by the time I was finished I was practically a Class 4 auditor. I knew all the handlings and tools to be successful to run the level. S.T. had me running the process like a pro.
Then I was introduced to Randy Smith, who did the finial check out and ok to audit on Solo NOTS.
He was great. He understood there was a lot to learn but to run this Rundown successfully you need to know it cold, no mistakes, by the book. Then the first session I ran the process and got a win, the next day I ran the process and got the reality that I was handling Life itself.
This is the reason (NOTS) you have any confusion in life and a lot of failures at accomplishing your goals and interacting with Life itself.
It is the most rewarding level you will ever do in life and in your future lives.
Once you finish this level you WILL BE ABLE TO HANDLE LIFE ITSELF.
YOU WILL BE CAUSE OVER LIFE. ONCE YOU COMPLETE THIS LEVEL THE PROBLEMS IN LIFE WILL DISAPPEAR.
LIFE MAKES LIFE GO RIGHT.
IF THERE IS A BARRIER IN LIFE YOU WILL KNOW HOW TO HANDLE IT.
IT’S THE TRUE POWER OF A THETAN TO MAKE THINGS GO RIGHT.
THIS KNOWLEDGE IS PRICELESS. YOU WLL GET THE REALITY OF THIS LEVEL WHEN YOU AUDIT IT.
SO TAKE THE EFFORT OUT OF LIFE. JUST DO OT. 7 – SOLO NOTS – AND THINGS WILL GO RIGHT.
I COULD NOT HAVE MADE IT THROUGH THIS WITH OUT THE HELP OF ALL THE PEOPLE TO SUPPORT ME AND MY FAMILY THROUGH THIS LEVEL.
THIS LEVEL IS WORTH THE INVESTMENT IN TIME AND MONEY. IT WAS A LOT OF WORK AND DISCIPLINE TO GET THROUGH IT BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. I WANT TO THANK TREY LOTZ, PIERRE E., Randy SMITH,
THE C/S THAT GOT ME THROUGH IT WITH UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORT, (GREAT JOB, Randy ) MY DEEPEST THANKS.
AND OF COURSE TO MY WIFE KAREN AND FAMILY, and Most of all to L. RON HUBBARD.
YOUR TRUTH WILL BE WITH ME FOREVER.
YOURS VERY TRULY
Having been inactive for a number of years since leaving the Church, this person is now rolling again!
Where or how do I begin to describe how beautiful it is to experience this level of auditing? This is the answer to every mystery that seemed to be part of me and, in reality, it wasn’t me at all. This is pure truth.
Unwanted situations, feelings, thoughts are gradually resolving. Increased certainty and knowledge grow after each session. Powerful results in minutes!
Co-workers acknowledge that something is unique about me. My production, in a normally slow month, increased by 40% !
Relationships with loved ones is magically enhanced. Best yet is the certainty that this is the tech that leads to responsibility. Now I have a glimpse of what it is like to be at total cause. Something can be done about it!
Thank you, Randy! This is a fun ride!
Diego is doing a diligent study of the books for the Solo Auditor’s Course. Here is his latest:
I just finished reading Science of Survival (SOS) and I wanted to share my wins with you.
Firstly, reading this book has given me a keen ability to read into people and their tone level. I am sure that this ability will be useful for the rest of my life, and I intend to improve it every day. This new ability has also come with an increased ARC for lower tone levels, in the sense that it is now harder for me to key in when I interact with people who are lower on the tone scale. I know that their reactions and behavior are inherent to their tone and so I don’t take it personally. This increased ARC has also come with a desire to raise the tone level of everyone that I interact with (imagine how the world would change if everybody had this purpose). By understanding theta and the tone scale, I have developed a new ability to flow theta (as ARC) and help people feel better.
Second of all, studying SOS significantly improved my own ability to receive auditing and communicate with my mind. By understanding the way theta and entheta interact, the way in which the mind and the file clerk respond to the auditor, and the dynamics of the tone scale as a PC is receiving auditing, I developed a better comprehension of my own case. In fact, I started trusting my file clerk much more, and I became more cause over the entheta that is restimulated by auditing. I was able to understand that misemotion and somatics were just part of the process. In fact, on many occasions, while I was feeling sad or annoyed, SOS would come to mind and I would realize that the incident was moving up the tone scale. This realization would make the entire incident blow and I would burst into laughs.
Finally, SOS is the longest and most challenging book (in terms of vocabulary) that I have ever read. I am very proud to have been able to start, continue and end this cycle without blowing. Starting cycles is very easy for me, but finishing them is something that I struggle with. Hence, being able to finish this cycle is a BIG indication of case gain for me. I am very grateful to you Randy, for helping me apply the study tech and ensuring that I understood everything; to you Trey for helping me be more capable of closing cycles; to you Jerry, for inspiring me to always learn more, and to you, mom and dad, for your financial and spiritual support every single day.
Thanks again, to all of you!
Checking back in to Randy’s place, reporting about the first hours of Solo Nots Auditing:
My name is Anders Blom from Sweden. In mid April this year Randy started me on the Solo 1 auditing Course. Since then we have worked 1-2 times a week over Skype with my training. In September I went through OT-III.
