Latest win from Shirley on Solo NOTS

Shirley has been doing very well solo auditing on OT VII.  Here is her latest win:

Quiver Tree Milky Way-X2

   “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

Wins from Solo NOTS auditing

Success Story
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.

stellar outburst
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
of reality.

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.


Latest OT III Completion!

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

 eye-like space image

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,

-Mary Blackford

Exemplary Solo NOTS Course Completion – OT VI

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.

     Just Simply,

      Infinite ARC to All




Rave Success Starting on Solo NOTS

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:

begging dog space image


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!”

Love,  Shirley

Real Life Wins While On OT III

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.

A Shining Pearl is Free to Shine – OT II Completion

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.

Quiver Tree Milky Way-X2

       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!

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!


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
