Rima has been training as a Solo NOTS auditor, and recently had a major breakthrough, and we are very proud of her:
“The journey through the lower OT levels was one of awareness; of self and what has imbued the self. Taking the steps to the higher levels, I have discovered what some might call the “secrets of the universe” as the information I gained was not encountered before these levels, by any stretch of the imagination.
“As I learned to solo the air waves on OT VI, I found it remarkable that anyone could have ever discovered this fabulous information, let alone how to use it and when. In reviewing the basics in Dianetics Modern Science of Mental Health I was able to connect the dots that began the makeup of solo auditing in the New Era Dianetics for OT’s or NOTs.
“Meter drills cleaned off the rust of past auditor training, leaving me reaching for the time I would solo. It wasn’t far off since I had to learn the tools of the trade which meant I started to solo, but by no means was this “flying by the seat of my pants”! As I learned each tool and added it to my toolbox, I was auditing. With the guidance of my C/S Randy Smith, the bumps and obstacles cleared away and I was smoothly moving forward.
“Now, I am almost at the door of OT VII, just a few more tools to acquire and I will don my solo wings.
“Just yesterday I had the misfortune to let case get a grip on me and my thinking. I just knew that anger and frustration was the answer to what was going on. BUT, my C/S said, “Take yourself in (to session) – tonight, and do (this action) to a win. Don’t stew in this all night!”
“Imagine that! I took myself into session and got a handle on the upset. I had another session this morning and uncovered another layer of this case. Wow! Isn’t it wonderful to be able to handle a case manifestation yourself?
“Thanks to Randy for his patience and perseverance, and mostly for his unshakeable belief in the tech. It works, by the way.”
-Rima Evans Curry
Shirley has been doing very well solo auditing on OT VII. Here is her latest win:
“In auditing along on Solo NOTS this win subtly unfolded:
There are wonderful wins for self, as LRH has always wanted for any PC or Pre-OT. But it’s not enough to have wins just for yourself – when one frees up theta, it allows others to win as well, being responsible for their own dynamics and universes.
LRH says “Happiness is overcoming not unknowable obstacles toward a known goal.”
This is a win-win situation for all! To sit on top of a mountain and not play a game – well, one can choose this, or the bottom end – wins only for self? – well, that’s a real “only one” and a very abberated games condition.
What a joy it is to know that not only am I winning myself, but so are others, this planet and my dynamics and all three universes (as LRH describes them in 8-8008)!
Life is more theta and freer for all. I have certainty that this is something special about this level.
I think what LRH would say is – Continue helping yourself, and helping others!
My deep admiration and respect for my CS Randy Smith, who not only standardly keeps me in-tech and on track, but for all he is doing to help others go up the bridge and win, as well.”
Much ARC, Shirley
When I started this level I figured I’d be on it for quite some time. After all I know people
who have been on it for 10 or 20 years. But that’s a different organization. We do things
standardly here. That was the first thing I needed to learn.
I was really surprised how easy it was to get started. Randy came over, with just a couple
days notice, and coached me through the final steps needed to get onto OT VI. Then I did
my first session and have been auditing since–about a year and a half total.
It was a gradient from effect to cause. In earlier sessions the case seemed huge and
interminable and something to be cautious of. But by applying the correct techniques all
worked out well.
I recall one morning I had a bad chest somatic. I’d had those before and
they would always bother me although nothing medically was ever found, fortunately.
Anyway, I went in session and did the correct action and the somatic blew.
Later in the rundown case just became something to handle rather than be concerned about. Toward the end the main effort became finding something to run!
At some point I became aware of theta and postulates being real. That’s something any
beginning Scientologist could tell you but this was more like an earlier win I had on the
drug rundown where I realized the room was there. It was like a new thought or new level
Wow. It’s a rehab just writing a success story. My space is calm and peaceful after having
freed up so much case.
As mentioned before I want to thank Randy for his professionalism and caring. He is an
excellent C/S and kept me on track. His only concern was getting me through the level.
There were no additives, no stat pushes, no arbitraries entered. This made the auditing
pleasant and effective. I highly recommend him for anyone who wants to move up the
And I want to thank LRH his research and providing us with all this valuable data. I’m
currently listening to the SHSBC lectures and learning more each day.
Mary, a college instructor in creative writing, has previously done the Solo Auditor’s Course, OT I and II with us, and we are very proud to announce her completion of OT III. Here is her success story:
Success Story: OT III
Some of the most basic truths in life, the ones foundational to us as spiritual beings, are so simple. The genesis of our “complex” lives, the source of our many troubles and travails, is simple. We are simple beings. But oh, how we have complicated our lives! And how wonderful it is to just BE. I have pulled away the last remaining thread on the “ravell’d sleeve of care,” and I have no interest in knitting on that thing again. In fact, I feel like starting a new, maybe even different, art project! The world is full of wonderful possibilities.
I want to thank Trey Lotz for getting me sorted out and onto my grades, and for being there when I decided to return to the Bridge. I admire his auditing so consistently and well for all of these years.
I want to thank Randy Smith, for his awesome and patient work with me through my Solo Course, OT II, and OT III courses, and for C/Sing me through OT I, OT II, and OT III. I always received wholly standard tech with Randy’s ARCful instruction and instructs, which always included the corresponding LRH references. I knew I could and can trust Randy. He had my back every step of the way on the long, lonesome road I had to walk.
Last, but not least, I must thank L. Ron Hubbard. I am in awe of his gifts to us. Words do not suffice to express my gratitude.
Now I am going to go enjoy my wins as an OT III and see what I can create.
See you all down the road!
With great ARC,
Shirley’s success story speaks for itself. Its an honor to be working with her, as she is now firmly on the wonderful adventure of OT VII:
Success Story – OT VI
I started OT VI, unsure, apprehensive, and to be honest, a bit worried. Never mind that I’m trained – I still had these considerations. My CS Randy Smith supervised me, drilled me, caught every hesitation, uncertainty and misunderstood word!
I started auditing and got win after win after win. And I saw results & wins in family, friends and others. Sure, some errors here & there, but easily and quickly corrected – and back in the chair. Yes, there’s discipline – restructuring one’s life a bit for all the sessions (and my ability to complete cycles of action skyrocketed!) Keeping body ruds in with nutrition and rest.
The culmination is such a release on “re-finding” and acknowledging myself – a static, OT & quite simply that. This win kept unfolding until it happened so hugely – frankly I was stunned beyond words!
In looking at my road to this, I am in awe and thankfulness to all who helped me – Randy – CS extraordinaire, Trey – auditor extraordinaire, and all those who supported me in this. Even my Billy, my late husband. Though not a Scientologist, he granted me such love and beingness to audit PCs and receive auditing, I wouldn’t have achieved this without him (so much for the “think” that you can’t have a happy marriage if your 2d isn’t a Scientologist! LOL!!)
I find my self looking forward to the future and especially having “PCs on my cans”, and to completing OT VII – to flow back wins and gains to others and help them up the Bridge as I have been helped.
I don’t have, honestly, words to thank LRH – I am thinking he knows. As each PC and Pre-OT progresses – this planet, all 3 universes, there is more theta, the planet gets saner – and I believe he knows this.
Infinite ARC to All
Shirley is a veteran, experienced auditor and Case Supervisor, just getting started on Solo NOTS. She lives in the Northeast US, and is being trained and CSed remotely by us here in Southern California. Here is her rave success story:
When I first started Part C of the Solo NOTS checksheet, I was apprehensive. I’d recently had a major loss, felt adrift, and lacked confidence. Even though I’m an experienced, trained auditor and CS, I doubted myself.
With Randy’s expert suping, perception and understanding, I started auditing Solo NOTS.
Wow!!! I’m on a persistent FN – those “darned” FNs and Floating TAs!!
Interactiions with people, family, friends and situations smooth out so A to B, I almost can’t believe it!!!
I know Solo NOTS can take some time, but if this is just the start of wins, WOW!!!
It’s a beautiful joy to also know how much this auditing benefits oneself, others and this planet.
My heartfelt thanks to LRH for his caring and this marvelous tech! Also, to Randy – I couldn’t have gotten here without him. And to my wonderful auditor and friend Trey Lotz, who has helped me so much and never stopped believing in me.
“My cup runneth over!”
Mary is a creative writing college instructor, and sent me some of her recent wins while doing OT III:
I’ve had some pretty cool wins in the past couple of days. First, an area on my right back that I was running must’ve been LOADED with charge, or close to the heart of the matter, something. Right after session, about six or seven of my lumbar and thoracic vertebrae on the right side released themselves and adjusted spontaneously. I could hear the “zzzzpp” as they went. I have no more aching or pain on my right side now, either. My back has been a lot more comfortable lately, too. (Oh, yes, did I mention? I couldn’t get back into session for three days because I had a Floating TA or at least a persistent FN for that long!)
Then, I think I really reached (maybe it was basic ARC, TRs and intention, but still) a student who is and was having some serious self-confidence problems about his writing. I have been able to perceive that he’s been through some betrayal about the evaluation of his writing with at least one other instructor, who liked his writing, but failed him for a previous class. Because I am white and female, and he is an older black man, I have wondered if he trusts my writing advice and evaluation. Yesterday, though, he had a big breakthrough. He was hemming and hawing about how to approach an emotionally charged topic he felt strongly about, and he came up to ask my advice multiple times during the writing period.
He finally said, “I feel [this way] about this topic, but…it’s pretty strong, should I say it?” I looked him right in the eye and said, “Go there, M—-. That’s what you need to be writing about.”
I had no doubt I’d really connected with him at that moment. He just nodded. He proceeded to write the best paper I’ve seen him write, with the time he had left, and I have no doubt that this was a breakthrough moment for him. I even wrote him an email after I’d graded his paper that evening to let him know how well he’d done because I knew he’d worry all weekend about it.
Earlier that morning, I was driving to school and some dork in a big SUV pulled out right in front of me as he was exiting the parking lot. I was taken aback and braked and honked, but here’s the kicker: Usually, I feel SO angry and upset about drivers like that, that it stays with me all day, but yesterday, I shook it off! I was a little adrenalized (thanks for the swift reaction time, GE!) but I was barely fazed. Not that I didn’t care if I got into a wreck. That was the last thing I wanted. But I kept looking at the incident every so often and thinking, “I just don’t have the same reaction anymore.” Honestly, before, it was as if I would take out part of my case and chew on it for days after an incident like that.
I also had a thoughtless driver stop behind me as I was backing out of a parking spot yesterday. I was all pissed off as she sat there behind me, adjusting her hair and getting her sunglasses on (no cross traffic to stop her), and I kept thinking she was deliberately being irritating. I was so angry, but as I exited the parking lot, I realized that it wasn’t deliberate; she was just out of PT and clueless! The BPC and anger, which had been entirely my mockup, blew right there! That was amazing, because, like I said, I usually chew on the BPC for some time.
