Relationship of Training to OT

“You are very fortunate people, very very lucky people. You came all the way down the track, lived all those years, did all of those stupid things, and you wind up here with a chance out. That chance is as good as you can audit. It’s not a bit better. It is a good thing, if anybody is to be fully cleared or go OT, for them to be trained. If they are going to make it, they will have to be trained well.


The best way and the most sure-fire way to get to be OT is to be a top rank auditor, for various reasons, including the aplomb it takes to confront the bank. Somebody who has started in this line, if he’s had enough training, isn’t going to bail out until it’s done. Many are called but few are chosen, and there are many reasons why this track and path is a limited track and path.

This isn’t to say that eventually everybody won’t make OT but certainly, definitely and positively, it will be a very very long route for others. Training is definitely, definitely, definitely a part of the route to OT. Definitely. This is not something that is “nice to be a part of.”

This is something that is a VITAL part of becoming OT. You have to know how to audit well, just to make life tenable enough for you to be able to go on through to OT. You’re fortunate to have moved up to the situation that you’re in. The only thing I ask you to do is to make the most of what you’ve got.” LRH (Tape: “The Relationship of Training to OT”)

An Eloquent Win on the road to OT

Honestly, the journey to full OT is so reliant on becoming aware of finer perceptions that one can almost miss them.


Shedding the many cloaks we wear is the pertinent element in coming to see oneself and thus have buried theta abilities back once more.

Going along Solo, I see little by little myself emerging, and how postulates emanate with an ease I didn’t understand previously.

A long road ahead, but filled with curiosity and adventure with knowledge waiting at the end of the rainbow.

Fresh Wins on OT II Theory Course and Solo Auditing

OT II Theory Success Story

September 3, 2014

In the Indie field, it’s tricky to find well trained and competent course supervisors at the level of OT.

I am VERY fortunate to have been referred to Randy Smith for OT II training. I did my Solo I and II with him, just wrapped up OT II theory, and am now running along very smoothly and confidently in OT II, thanks to Randy’s great course supervision.

Although we had done most of the Solo Auditor Course over Skype –  which was done very standardly with all Study Tech in place – I couldn’t take a week off from work to go to Randy’s area to do the intensive training required for OT II – so Randy offered to come to my town to do the training over a three-day weekend (plus two days). We worked diligently, and by Day 4, I had begun my auditing.

I feel rather spoiled to have had my own personal course supervisor!

Randy always referred me to the correct bulletins if I needed an answer to a tricky
question. He knows precisely what to look for, when you need it. And no verbal data here!
He made sure I really knew my terminology, too.



By the time I began auditing, I felt quite confident that I knew precisely what I was doing, and  I have been HAVING BIG WINS at OT II from Day 1, Session 1.  Its truly like no auditing I have ever done!  And I am just in my first few days on it.

I KNOW what the game is, what to look for, the mechanisms in play, and how to audit this level correctly in the first place, thanks to Randy. The way to audit it right is there, all in the bulletins and tapes by LRH.


So I am very glad to have done this course with Randy Smith! And of course, I have so much admiration for LRH for having pioneered these levels in the first place! “How’d he DO that?”



Helping to Save a Relationship

“We had very bad problems, but with true love and honesty we overcame even those things.”

LRH’s Tech just keeps on working, when one uses it. And what a pleasure it is to share this kind of result! This couple just completed Scn Marriage Counseling this week, here in the Independent Field:

HIS Success Story:

“My girlfriend and I had tried just about everything to improve our relationship of 1 1/2 years as we felt it was worth saving, but we were struggling with the same issues that kept coming back over and over and over again, and we were both about ready to just give up. 
By the way, prior to doing Scientology Marriage Counseling (MC) we had also tried almost every different method of relationship support available: we read books on relationships, cleansing the room with sage, prayer, journaling, gifts and surprise dates, attending 12 step groups on relationships and co-dependence and even money ones, we went to a couples therapist (which was a total disaster and actually made things worse!), and even going to another group’s  ‘Love & Relationship Course’ (which made us anxious and was essentially just a waste of time and money) – until we finally decided to give the Scientology Marriage Counseling (in the Independent Field)  a shot before calling it quits.
I must also admit that I was very scared going into counseling as I feared that my girlfriend knowing my Overts and Withholds would certainly break us up for good, and in fact a few fights did ensue between sessions – and so if there is one thing I would recommend to anyone seriously considering taking the MC, it would be to arrange your schedule with few or no gaps between sessions since a lot of stuff will be coming up and it is tempting to quit when it gets tough.
That being said, after each session I noticed that we were willing to talk more and more about the things that mattered to us and we began getting on the same page about our plans and goals together – something we never really did before very effectively.
At the end of the last session, I felt really good about myself, our relationship and my girlfriend, and noticed myself looking at her again as though if for the first time as my feelings of interest and attraction surged back for her! I also realized that I didn’t want to do anything that in the slightest way might harm her or the relationship anymore and so I even volunteered another withhold after the session ended to both her and Randy – and we were both OK and felt totally safe with each other at last!
I also made some profound insights about my personal struggles with trust and intimacy stemmed from dramatizing my parents’ failed marriage and my resulting childhood issues – but weren’t really me at the core – were what I was carrying into the relationship. (One thought which occurs to me now is that I wish my parents had used MC while I was growing up as well as my friends and relatives who had good relationships but then struggled and eventually broke up).
With this emotional garbage out of the way, we now have space and aren’t hiding from each other anymore. I used to fear that because we had been in a lot of ugly verbal and emotional fights (which even became physical at times) we would never be able to tell our kids or friends that we “hadn’t laid a hand on each other”, but then my girlfriend said something very moving and stays with me in that we can say, “We had very bad problems, but with true love and honesty we overcame even those things.” (And it’s true!)
Anyway I am realizing that this counseling is all about restoring the affinity and reality (the “A-R” in “A-R-C”) in us by clearing out the O/W’s so that what is in one person’s world/space is now in the other’s, as well as getting into their reality about how something you did or said could hurt (whether intentional or not isn’t the point it’s how they feel) but without any accusation, shame, blame or guilt.
And now that we’ve handled the clean up I’m ready and excited for the Communication Course which is all about raising communication (the “C” in “A-R-C”)!

Thank you to our phenomenal independent auditor Randy Smith who was patient and never rushed nor forced us in session – in fact, he was very professional even when I yelled at him for not allowing us to go into session when I was exhausted and unsessionable because I “wanted to get it over with quickly” – instead he spent time with us to get me vitamins and minerals my body needed which was why I was angry and tired all the time.
Everything worked just as it should and it was WAY better than at the Church of Scientology’s Celebrity Centre (which actually disclosed her trusted and sensitive private information to me intentionally and shared our struggles with all the staff!).
I HIGHLY recommend Randy Smith, marriage counseling, Independent Scientology! Thank you all and most of all a big thank you to my girlfriend Olga for supporting us and believing in the power of love! :)”


“First off, I want to acknowledge you, Randy for your dedication and patience to be part of this huge support in our lives. It was a quite a challenge (oh boy that was) 🙂 in the beginning but I’ve learned SO much.

 I notice we are drawn to a different gateway to being on our personal path to awakening to a greater experience like we had today at our last session. I also got that my boyfriend Ian and I still need to find our own way of understanding our differences and applying them to our lives.

As we awaken to ourselves and to life, by opening up in communication we will become more attuned to what is right for us.

But only we can decide what truly makes us feel inspired, awakened, connected, fully conscious, aware and alive.

I’ve learned that there is no such thing as a good person or bad person. There are choices and actions that lead us in different directions, and it is through those choices and actions that create our realities.  Instead of labeling ourselves, though, we could simply acknowledge that we made a choice that lead us down a particular path, and just let go, forgive ourselves  and prepare for next opportunity to choose, and act, in ways that support our best intentions.

In addition, I was in a kind of world that, when I looked at myself all I saw was imperfections. Often I’d come to the mirror with expectations and preconceived notions about beauty that blinded me from seeing myself clearly. As a result, I would miss the beauty that is closest to me, the beauty that I am.

I gain so much by cutting through all these obstacles and by simply appreciating how beautiful I am.

I have freed up so much energy.

I am also becoming less dependent upon the opinions and feedback of others, especially from the man I love so dearly.

I released some of my baggage. (finally) Ha! I could go on and on.

Thanks SO much for this. Not LandMark*, other therapists, or the Kabbalah**, allowed me to see clearly the root of the main issues I was dealing with.

New OT I completion in the Indie Field

Mary has recently completed her Solo I course, and just last week, did OT I.  Here is her shining success story:

OT I Success Story
Aug. 2, 2014

After a long, long runway, just starting my Solo course and my OT levels are huge wins for me!
So many people focus on OT III that I had no idea this “baby step,” with its simple commands, could lead me to a profound change in viewpoint toward others and my relationships with them.

Portrait - Drawing - Woman studying alphabet with laughing girl

 I realized that my attitude and state of being are not just something I do, alone, but that other beings (no matter what their case level), recognize, too. Because we are all thetans, we really do recognize the state of other beings to some degree (some better than others, but it’s something we all do natively). We project our state onto others, and it is reflected back. So, whatever our state of being, that bounces right back to us!

Things that happen in the theta universe don’t just stay in the theta universe. It’s all translated through flows, intentions, actions, creations, and MEST, including bodies. It’s a big “create-fest” around here! We are art in action, all the time, everywhere! And you just gotta admire the infinite variety of creations! Astounding! Our native state is to create. Not a noun or an adjective, but a verb: “To create.” “To create R us.”

I find myself in much higher ARC with others now, and people (and animals) react to me with higher ARC, too. I seem to attract more higher-toned people! The “smear of fear” that used to occlude my theta perception is gone. The effort to create ARC or reach others’ ARC level is gone. I “just do it.” I can be there comfortably with others much more easily, their case, creations, and all!

stellar outburst

Thanks so much to Ron for finding all these truths, having the courage and tenacity to follow the truths through, to their logical end, then organizing the steps (small and large) of the Bridge so nicely for us.

Thank you to all who persist in keeping Scientology working, too! I especially want to thank my Solo course supe, C/S, and friend, Randy Smith, for being there to deliver tech with care, ARC, and precision! On to OT II! Allonz-y!


Our latest Completions on the Solo NOTS Course – OT VI

Success Story OT VI


I just finished Solo NOTs Part C – OT VI. It’s been wonderful – so many wins, so many interesting sessions, learning how the NOTs case works and how to handle it. Amazing how the lightest touch can much of the time blow off so much, as opposed to the heavy-handed things I had to do in the church.




I made a lot of my goals I was previously unable to make as an auditor, let alone as a Solo auditor.

I’m much more confident of my metering and I have no back off doing L&N, correction lists, or any other auditing action.

I know that I can handle anything that comes up in session! I never had that feeling before.

Randy is wonderful as a supervisor, C/S, and friend. Never invalidative, always encouraging, and he actually validates you when you do it right (without OVER validating you like what happens when you do an extension course in the church).

I’m never afraid to ask a question (for which I’ve been made wrong by the C/S in the church!) and he’s so patient and willing to spend time finding references and answers. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to get onto OT VII, or for any other Bridge action.



OT VI Success Story

The OT VI course was amazing and much more than just a course. It was an internship and a solo auditing action. Along with learning all sorts of valuable and interesting data I was given the chance to address my case and handle conditions that had been left untouched or even aggravated in earlier auditing. It was great to study and then audit in a relaxed environment where the main concern was getting the student trained and the pc audited to an excellent result. There were no additives, no stat pushes, no arbitraries entered. It was as I always thought it should be and I’m sure as LRH intended.

At the beginning of the course I had quite a few somatics. Now I have quite a few less. I also have confidence I can handle the rest of my case and get through OT VII. What more could I ask for?

I want to thank Randy for his patience and caring. He is an excellent C/S and I would
recommend him to anyone.

I want to thank those who put together the course materials and ensured they are

And I want to thank LRH for all he has done.


Recently “out” Class VIII OT 8 has wins on study in the Indie Field

I am new to the Indie field but have been a Scientologist
for over 40 years with a lot of training under my belt.

I just got my first spot check by Randy and it was fantastic!
Because of Randy’s ARC and purpose of addressing ones
understanding instead of roteness, I cognited that the checkout
is an extension of your understanding –  not to find out what you
This will make my studying and participation in this course
much more enjoyable for me.

Thanks Randy for giving me a standard checkout the way
LRH would have done it.

Life Repair Completion

Ian had tried very hard to get service in the Church, but it didn’t work out (for reasons we all know too well -:) – so he came to us in the Indie Field.

He just completed Life Repair, and here is his success story:


” Life Repair is powerful!  My auditor, Randy Smith was great & very thorough with my questions & we handled quite a bit.

” I know now what direction I want to go in my career (research & investigation), I feel fairly confident that my life will not get any worse, I feel more present & in touch with my body, am better at listening without anxiety or dread as  I used to have before.

” My attention with others & in particular my girlfriend is much better – and I have certainty that auditing works.

” I had been to therapists in the past & rarely left feeling good – usually I left sad, angry, frustrated or disappointed – whereas here each session felt awesome!  This is WAY different than Church of Scientology auditing in that I can talk about ANYTHING & EVERYTHING without fear of going to ethics or being pressured to buy more, or donate more, at every entrance or exit.

“The Tech is Here and I am grateful it exists.  I recommend everyone try it for themselves and see the results firsthand.

“Looking forward to the next steps!”

–  Ian


Win on the Solo NOTS Course

On the Solo NOTS course, also called OT VI, one learns the data and tools to successfully solo on OT VII.  Toward the end of OT VI, one does quite a lot of solo auditing, gaining experience and expertise with the tools.  Here is a recent success story from one of our student Solo NOTS auditors:


stellar outburst

” I noticed a change as I was auditing this week on OT VI.  After looking it over I realized that I had exteriorized from my case.  I could see how the environment affected my case, and the reactions, but could also see they were not my reactions.  It seems more confrontable now that there is that intervening space between me and the case being handled on this level.

“I can also say that I really enjoy auditing on this level.  It’s what I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

“I would like to thank Randy for his encouragement and  for keeping me me going in the correct direction with Ron’s Standard Tech.”



College Professor Benefits from Solo Auditor Training

Mary teaches English and Literature at a college here in California. She sent me this win recently, from the Solo Auditor Course:


Dear Randy:

I just want to express how happy and grateful I am to be working with you on my Solo course. We do a lot of little detours and some important word clearing that are valuable to me in life as well as in auditing.


For example, we talked about the overt cycle * (involving misunderstood words (MUs) or symbols) today, and I feel so much better about being around critical students (and knowing precisely where all that comes from)! Just knowing where all this comes from takes the stigma and guilt off me as an instructor, and also relieves me of having to target my students as “bad” or “difficult” students. Good grief, they’re suffering from MUs! Simple! (Of course, I do all I can to educate students about MUs, but you can take a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink.)

There are also unexpected benefits to the detouring and “off-the-beaten-path” word clearing—things such as learning what BPC* truly means. For realz, not thinking I’d “missed” spotting some BPC on a PC! Omg. So much self-blame all this time! So much “en garde” against MISSING ANYTHING OR MAKING ANY ERROR on a PC! What relief!

It’s amazing to me that I have been so ready to blame myself for my students’ bad attitudes, for overts in auditing that I didn’t commit, or to think I “lacked” in some way because I felt a certain way about things. (Yeah. The sensitivity to restimulative TV shows.)

Your patience, generosity, and ability to grant beingness to futzy (oh, there I go again!) students is wonderful and remarkable, and I am so glad to be your student.

And as a bonus, holy cow, I get all exterior and motivated and excited and uptone and stuff. Niiiice!

I look forward to working with you for a very long time.

*  Cycle of an Overt – It goes like this.  1) a being doesn’t get the meaning of a word or symbol. 2) This causes the being to misunderstand the area of the symbol or word (who used it, whatever it applied to). 3) This causes the being to feel different from or antagonized toward the user or whatever of the symbol and so makes it all right to commit an overt.  4) Having committed the overt, the being now feels he has to have a motivator and so feels caved in.  This is the stuff of which Hades is made.  This is the trap.  This is why people get sick.  This is stupidity and lack of ability”  L. Ron Hubbard HCOB 8 Sept 64
