I first did the Solo Nots Parts A-C In the Church from May 1989 to July 1989 with good results being a Class 8 auditor. I then went home to LA and solo audited very well.
Later, whenever I flew to Flag from LA it was hard for me to be 100% sessionable just for the fact of the jet lag along with the demands of following a standard course schedule. It really was hard and even though after a day or two of recovering, never really felt fully rested. Then there was the angst hanging over you of the constant “hard sell” by the reg’s especially if you started to become short of hours. I saw several people not being able to go home, when they could, until they paid up for more hours. One person even left and they kidnapped him at the airport and brought him back forceably. Then there was the reg’s for the IAS trying to get more money out of you. All these distractions created an out Rud’s situation and created a constant PTP while you were trying to complete the level.
All this is avoided when doing the course and soloing at home and sending in your results via email to my superb CS Randy Smith. Randy has the utmost ARC for you and really knows his stuff technically.
In addition, little did I know that I was solo auditing Nots without all of the original materials put on the course by LRH! So when I originally attested, I had attested to the David Miscavage Solo Nots and not LRH’s Solo Nots, which had much more LRH materials and actions.
I’m not sure if the DM Church intentionally left off a lot of the original materials intentionally or they really did discover more materials that were left off the level by someone else not named, but I can’t imagine anyone can be that stupid of not researching all the original LRH Nots materials available before you would release it to the public. Instead, the DM Church would hang out a red herring on a fishing pole to you afterward and make you come down to Flag to read a confidential bulletin which they recently “discovered” that showed that all the LRH Nots materials were not on or available to me when I originally did the course and solo auditing. I always refused to go down there to “review” the “new materials” because I didn’t think it right that they would withhold that information to me. I knew they were just trying to get me in as a “Body in the Shop” stat to get more money out of me and make me pay for their mistake. Instead of letting me do the new materials for free; since it was their mistake for not having all the LRH materials available for me, or even giving me a discount; they demanded that I foot the bill for doing the whole level again instead! Just that alone created an out ruds situation, especially in the form of an ARC break with the church.
To make a long story short, I finally feel that I’ve totally handled my Solo Nots case and can confidently attest to completion of New OT VII!
I strongly advise all persons who’ve done Solo Nots to at least get it checked out again by doing it in the Indie field, because a lot of us, if not close to 100%, didn’t receive the entire level as established by LRH before DM got in there and Randy is a very good terminal for you to clear it up with completely and receive ALL the materials LRH intended to have on the level.
Thanks Randy for all your help and thanks to LRH for putting it there!
Our beloved friend Shirley tells a great story of her spiritual journey, just having completed SOLO NOTS with flying colors:
“My journey to spiritual freedom began when I was about 25. I was very unhappy with myself, life, my actions, etc. No Ethics Officer (E.O) ever had to point out where I was off the rails. I always knew – and also was the hardest E.O. to myself!
“Then I started training and processing and my understanding grew of how and why of case and how it affected oneself and others.
“My desire to help others rose to almost a passion! There was a point where I thought, well, if this is the farthest I get, I’ll do the best I can.
“My success is not just mine – its also Trey Lotz’s, dear friend and OT auditor extraordinaire. In a few short years, he got me up to and through OT V, the L’s rundowns, and ready for Solo NOTS!
“One of my goals was to be “the best one” I could, putting theta and aesthetics in the environment, and to help others to those freedoms.
“A severe loss in 2014 (my late husband) and I thought I was done for–but Trey again, and then Randy Smith, the most standard, perceptive, duplicative CS ever– came through for me again. Randy steered me the whole time onto and through Solo NOTS, keeping me on track, answered every question with the exact reference, and always, always acknowledged every win.
“So, my success is also his, and everyone else who has helped or encouraged me.
“I stand back and take a look at the infinite ARC and KRC of LRH for his tech and all he did and still does, by the application of tech by others.
“I find myself going out and about lately, and people just start smiling. I find situations and problems my family and friends had as-ising and resolving.
“I find myself, when confronted with a situation or problem or whatever, just handling it effortlessly. My postulates flow freely. Even if I goof – I find 2 Rules for Happy Living is just IN and I find myself laughing -(not beating myself up!) My responsibility rose so high it’s like my caring went past the stars!
“I’ve re-found my self worth – not as anything to be liked or admired or brag about – but a wonderfulness of knowing that I’m able, can contribute to and help others and make theta effects in all three universes.
“My “cup” is overflowing!
“Much Love, Shirley”
This success story speaks for itself:
Profound. Eternal. A goal that I have had for eons achieved. This is the most important adventure I have ever experienced, to truly be cause over life. It is the most beautiful and compassionate journey. I could have audited this level every day forever because it was so easy to do.
But then my awareness started to shift. What I was doing in session just became a huge knowingness and part of who I am. Love and gratitude became the universal solvent. All negativity just washed away with this powerful emotion and communication. I won the spiritual lottery that I figured out how to do it this lifetime.
The daily OT occurrences are at such a high level and so frequent that I giggle with joy that I’m here. Situations such as precise and detailed pre-knowingness before it happens, discovering how to cure longstanding and severe physical disabilities, being told I’m an angel by people that meet me, low toned people falling out of my life, huge windfalls in money, attracting the most talented and up toned employees, and living in a state of exteriorization.
This is the real deal!
Thanks to Randy Smith with his expert training and super high ARC I was able to easily learn how to free myself.
And of course our most beloved friend for eternity, L Ron Hubbard, the gratitude that I have for this man is as big as the universe.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I’m back!! D.K
We are very proud of this student and Pre-OT, who has done a thorough job on OT II, with the resultant rewards. Here is her Success Story:
It has been a long road, with many ditches to dig along the way, but every session brought me closer to — myself.
Imagine being an oyster at the bottom of a nice, cozy oyster bed. Imagine you find a way to shuck the hard bits of shell off, one at a time. It’s a shell you never wanted, but had to develop to protect yourself – (or so you thought!)
Imagine harboring a beautiful pearl all this time, deep inside, and after all the shucking of black, hard, immovable bits you thought you had to have, finally, lo and behold, you discover that the beautiful pearl is YOU! And then that pearl is free to shine. Really SHINE.
OT II is kinda like that.
I have discovered a calm and a serenity that I rarely experienced in this life, and certainly not to this degree.
With no reservation in saying this, I feel the most calm and serene I’ve ever felt in this life.
I must thank Dora and Joe for their hospitality when I did my Solo Course and the first and last bits of OT II, and for being such great friends and thetans, and for creating a safe space in which to study and audit.
I must also thank Randy Smith, my trainer, Case Supervisor and friend, for his spot-on teaching, application of TRULY Standard Tech, and for the patient, kind Case Supervising over these past months. THANK YOU!
And of course, thanks to L. Ron Hubbard for creating this Bridge for us in the first place! Words fall far short of expressing the extent of the wins I have had on OT II.
My amazement at Ron’s gifts to mankind grows daily.
Bring on OT III!
