Effecting Life

J.H. completed the History of Man/Technique 88 book and lecture series. Here is what she had to say about them: "I guess I read this book before - I guess! Getting the data in the sequence developed and communicated by Mr. Hubbard makes a HUGE difference, as well as the glossaries and especially, especially the lectures. It was easy to not get this information before but it's now comfortable and has become part of my personal reality. This has a huge effect on my own aberrations but also my life. I mean come on! How can anyone ever be the same again?!

Thanks, Mr. Hubbard and Palo Alto Mission."

Using Communication to Survive Better in the Future

I.R. completed the Success Through Communications course. He had this to say about it: "After the rigid training with my teacher, I feel that I now can hear and recognize different types of communication in real life. It is now up to me to use the tool that she gave to me to fulfill my roles in life as a father, as a husband, as a great citizen and to continue communicating properly so that I do not become a criminal in this universe. Mr. Hubbard said not to communicate is a crime. Communication is the heart in life. Without communication, you are basically dead.

I would like to thank my teacher for the gift of communication because now my communication skills are beating like a heart. I will keep it that way to survive in my future endeavors."

Calmness and Less Worry About Others

T. T. finished the Factors lectures. Here is what he said about them: "I completed the Factors lectures. Probably knowing that there is no hidden influence gives me more of a calmness and less worry about what someone may say. I can have more certainty about my beingness and what I can postulate. Being able to change and control anchor points, change and control my space will go a long way towards my ability to create and produce in the future."

Improving Life

J. B. finished the Route to Infinity lecture series. He says about it: "The Route to Infinity was a great lecture series. I would sit and listen and know that it was great stuff to apply to life. And that it would improve my life alot! And it has! Thanks, Ron!".

Helping Others With Self Analysis

J.H. finished the Sefl Analysis course. He says about it: "I enjoyed the Self Analysis Course. It had some great information on the Tone Scale and a lot of great Recall Processes that are easy to apply. I'm looking forward to applying the processes of Self Analysis on my mom."

Learning To Help Others With Their Problems

D. W. completed the Dianetics: The Original Thesis book course. She said: "Well here I am back at the beginning again.

I just really understand this data much more than I ever did. I know how to at least avoid or minimize getting keyed in for myself and for others around me and why that's so important for the survival of all of us. I know why the necessity level works and it also explains why I love to fly, work with electricity, play with fire (welding) and drive cars really fast (when I can). Just exteriorizing a person's attention from their own interior problems works wonders and for me too!

Anyway, thanks to Ron for all of this data and to everyone here who helps keep this place here for thetans [immortal spiritual beings; the human soul] like me."

Fully Competent With Dianetics

T. S. finished the Hubbard Dianetic Auditor course. He says about it: "This was actually incredible. I've been auditing for over 30 years and have audited alot of people.

With the data and techniques contained on this course, I am now fully competent and relaxed about auditing Dianetics."

No Trouble With Past Upsets

T.C. finished the auditing action Expanded Grade III, which frees a person from the upsets of the past and gives them the ability to face the future. Here are his gains: "I've been feeling better the past few weeks and was thinking how past upsets didn't matter and I've been realizing that it's important to grant others beingness at whatever reality point they are at and just keep communicating and increase the understanding, then help them on a gradient. It seems all the grades build on each other and each new one helps the prior grades expand for me in wins."

Troubles and Worries Lessened

T.T. completed the Philadelphia Doctorate Course lectures and Scientology 8-8008 book. Here are his successes: "I definitely took off some charge after thinking about just making myself "bigger" by giving myself more space. I find that a lot of troubles and worries I may have seem very trifle now.

I think that making good postulates [conclusions, decisions or resolutions made by the individual himself] are important now. Some of the counter effort has come off. When I just think of the postulate away from flows and energy, it gives me more belief now that I can achieve certain things that I previously doubted prior to this course."

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Dealing With Others Better

H.Z. finished the Evolution of a Science course. He had this to say about the course: "I learned about the reactive mind [that part of the mind which works on a totally stimulus-response basis, which is not under a person’s volitional control] and theory and practice of controlling/predicting it. [I gained]:

- Better control of my reactive mind

- Better [in] dealing with others - patience, endurance

- New perspectives on behavior."

Excited About Life

T.M completed Life Repair auditing. This is auditing designed to bring a lot of brightness back into a person's life and help him or her to relieve past upsets in life so that the future is beautiful. Here is what he has to say about his experience: "I feel excited and enthusiastic about life, and that my life is on a good track. I feel that I understand life much better, and that I can handle different situations much better than before, so that I can keep it on track much better in the future."

Command of Theta Completion

M.H completed the Command of Theta lectures course. She said this about the course: "This course produces results similar to Upper Levels auditing. Maybe there's a special quality of the exteriorzation [the state of the spirt being outside his body ], seems that way anyway.
The data helps you unravel and end cycle on gnarly stuff!"

Communicating Better

J.H. finished Expanded Grade 0, which frees a person from any blocks the person has in the area of communication. These are her wins: "This Grade was so crazy! I had a time crunch and I caught myself trying to rush through things and move faster. I realized that I could still go fast while actually gaining. I did this and got SO much done in a very short time. My wins kept getting bigger and bigger and I totally surprised myself. I feel so good about it all!"

Life Changing Course

JB finished the Milestone One lectures course. He had this to say about it "This was a GREAT! course but the thing that made it even better was that I had tons of realitizations about my life and myself that changed me greatly. Big time change! Thanks, Ron!"

The Route to Infinity

J.H. finished The Route to Infinity lecture series. She says: "I learned that raising ARC [Affinity, Reality and Communication: the components of understanding] and cause across my dynamics [the eight urges, drives or impulses of life] is a gradual rise and key to that is finding and getting off overts [harmful acts] against those dynamics. Otherwise one just refuses to rise for fear of doing more harm than good."

Surviving Better

J.H. completed the Science of Survival book and lectures course. He says: “This was a fantastic book and course. I learned how to apply the Chart of Human Evaluation and got a deeper understanding of the theory of how the spirit relates to the material world.”

Dissolving Problems!

JH completed Expanded Grade I. This is an auditing level where the preclear gains the ability to recognize the actual source of problems, at which point they cease to be problems.
He says, "Expanded Grade One was a cycle that has given me an ability which I know I will use for the rest of my existence. It has dissolved barriers that I once had and I am no longer being held back from myself. I am not saying I'm now perfect, but I am much more free. I love it!"

Learning about thought, emotion and effort

SP completed the course Thought, Emotion and Effort. He says, "This course was a joy to accomplish. The course combined with the lectures presented mass amounts of information that took some time to understand fully but became very real once I grasped it. Almost everything in the course I could directly apply to my life or see in life around me. Overall, this book and lectures were awesome and I can't wait to continue the basics."

Teen understands life better

JH completed the book course Self Analysis and says, "This course has given me such amazing and beneficial tools to go help others! I cannot wait to put them to use and see the results!"

Teenager understanding ethics

MW completed a course on Ethics and says, "The Ethics Book has been an amazing course. It has broadened my knowledge of what reason, ethics, responsibility and the eight dynamics are as well as how to properly apply them. Although these lessons were immeasurably helpful, the most significant part of this course has been the explanation of overts and withholds and all that follows. I now know why I am others can sometimes act so unreasonably after a petty mistake/bad act. This knowledge has shown me how to handle people, including myself, incredibly better. I have thoroughly enjoyed as well as benefitted from The Ethics Book and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone, no matter your age or experience level."

Postpartum Depression

Here is some vital data about the dangerous proposed Mothers Act from See the link for the full article.


Pregnant woman The Melanie Stokes Postpartum Depression Research and Care Act, also known as the Mothers Act, is a federal bill named after Melanie Stokes, a woman who suffered emotional difficulties after giving birth and was subsequently prescribed a cocktail of intensely controversial psychiatric drugs including anti-psychotic, anti-anxiety, and anti-depressant drugs (documented by the US FDA to cause worsening depression, mania and suicidal ideation) before being subjected to electroshock treatment.

Melanie Stokes was in the mental health system, was prescribed drugs, was hospitalized, was subjected to the still barbaric practice of electroshock and then committed suicide. That is what the mental health industry did for a new mother named Melanie Stokes. It is incredible that a story such as this does not raise alarm bells within Congress on the negligence of prescribing cocktails of psychiatric drugs to new mothers, drugs documented by the US FDA and international drug regulatory agencies to cause worsening depression, depersonalization, mania, psychosis, suicidal and homicidal ideation. Conversely the bill before Congress entitled the "Mothers Act", which already passed the House of Representatives and is now before the Senate, will assuredly increase new mothers being prescribed these deadly drugs, the most common treatment for women diagnosed with postpartum depression...."

Route to Infinity Course

Saturday, July 11, 2009


CW completed The Art Book course and said, "This course has honestly been the best I have ever studied. All of the information was mind-blowingly helpful to me. I wanted to frame every page of the book! It was particularly useful because I'm fairly involved in the arts. This course was truly amazing, applicable and just enjoyable overall."

Monday, July 06, 2009


LW completed the course, Success Through Communication. He said, "I found many weaknesses in myself in terms of communication. Many inappropriate tones, gestures and facial expressions were discovered. These had given someone with whom I was having a conversation wrong ideas. After we found them and made appropriate adjustmants, I feel more confident in delivering my messages to people and to audiences."

Changed viewpoint about life

A person serving time in prison has been studying the Problems of Work book and wrote this to us:
Has this course changed my viewpoint about life? Yes, I believe it has. I've always been fond of work but I like to set my own terms. This course has changed the way I think about work. It has made me more aware of the whole machine and of my part in it. I've learned to look at my part in the work I do as being important, even it at first it doesn't seem so for me. I always believed that work in any form is important to a healthy life and your teschings have reaffirmed that.
I am also more conscious of my surroundings and my spere of influence. I believe that, yes, it has changed my viewpoint on life and my part and purpose in it.
I do believe I conduct myself better when problems arise. Problem solving has become much easier and less confusing when I appy the maxim of the stable datum.
Sincerely, J

A good history lesson

DP completed the book and lecture course for Scientology: A History of Man and says, "This book and lecture series were amazing! They were so eye opening and really got me to see where I've been and what I've gone through. I cannot wait to audit all of these incidents on the Clearing Course and I'm excited to see what's next on my basics. Thanks to L. Ron Hubbard for this great data!"

Winning with Dianetics Auditing

AP has been receiving some Dianetics auditing and wrote this success story:
"New Era Dianetics auditing has been such an adventure for me even though I just started. Every day I've gone back and found some postulate that has still affected my life today. It has been amazing and I love it!"

Assist Auditing Program

JH completed an assist auditing program and says, "This program was wild! I now have a much higher level of ARC for myself and much higher respect for my abilities. I have recovered from something that many people never recover from fully. I know that if they did fully recover from incidents similar to mine, they would be much improved beings. I had never experienced Dianetics auditing before. It is unbelievable in the best way! I didn't know what I could achieve until I achieved it and it was a beautiful achievement." Here he is (on left) with his auditor Eric.

Life Repair Auditing

AJ completed Life Repair auditing and says, "Before auditing, my life wasn't going so well. I found out I had many overts and withholds. But lucky for me I had an amazing auditor. We handled everything that need to be handled and more, thanks to Tom. I really think that my life has changed enormously!! I am so grateful that I had him as an auditor."

Learning How to Learn

FC completed the course, Learning How to Learn and says, "I fully understand the course now and see that the last time I studied this, I was a little off. It is now really easy for me to spot misunderstood words and lack of mass.

The mechanism of blame

JH completed the book and lecture course for Handbook for Preclears. She says, "I learned so much from this book and these lectures, especially the lecture about cause on all dynamics and the mechanism of blame. I listen to this daily now, had my son and my husband listen to it and it has changed the whole dynamic for the better! Marvelous data! Thanks to the Mission for providing and to L. Ron Hubbard for discovering!"

Handbook for Preclears

New Outlook on Life

Avalon completed Expanded Grade IV, Ability Release: The auditing processes of this Grade enable the person to view himself in relation to all life and free himself from any patterns of thought and action which, while seeming to promote one's survival, in reality, do any but. When one moves out of fixed conditions, he can experience a huge resurgence in the ability to choose, partake in and enjoy new activities. Moving out of fixed conditions and being able to do other things is attained at Expanded Grade IV. Here's what she has to say, "Grade IV was truly amazing! I feel like I have a new outlook on life! I feel that I can take on new things and I feel free from fixed ideas I used to have."

Children's Communication Course

H.L. completed the Children's Communication Course and says, "I had a win on completing this course and I can use all the communication drills to help me in life. I learned to really be there and I learned how to really handle someone's problems so that they feel good in the communication cycle!"

Advanced Procedure and Axioms

J.H. finished the book and lecture course on Advanced Procedures and Axioms and says, "A lot of the data could easily stand alone as entire workable philosophies like the concepts of self-determinism, intelligence, thought-emotion-effort, responsibility and sympathy. Reading and hearing L. Ron Hubbard explain these concepts was fun and informative and and made me happy, because this is all true for every thetan. He is explaining you to you and your fellow man to you. The result is treating yourself and them with much more love, respect and understanding, along with being much more effective at bettering your own life and theirs. That's what I got - best bargain in the universe! Thanks Palo Alto Mission! Thanks Ron!"

Freedom from the upsets of the past

A.P. completed Expanded Grade Three! This auditing results in a person who is free from the upsets of the past with the ability to face the future. On Grade III processes one locates specific incidents where upsetting change occurred in life and addresses these so that they no longer adversely affect one. Some of the processes also enhance the ability of the individual to create positive change in himself or his environment. She says, "Grade III was awesome. I feel really good about being able to be okay with the past and to face the future confidently. I also know that I can cause changes for the good of myself and others. I feel comfortable with changes in my life."

Children's Communication Course

G.L. completed the Children's Communication Course and says he will use it in his life. In his success story he said, "If you were talking to someone you would understand them and they would understand you. I'm going to make sure I'm using good communication."

Learning How to Learn

T.L. completed the study course "Learning How to Learn." She says, "I loved learning how to learn! I learned the barriers to study and I'll know it for life. My favorite thing to learn about was lack of mass and misunderstood words."

The Entire Basics Books and Lectures Courses

D.W. completed the Fundamentals of Thought and Professional Course book and lecture course. She says, "This is the last of the book and lecture courses so just getting through all of these is a win for me. The biggest win is just my understanding of Dianetics and Scientology. But, I wouldn't have gotten this understanding if I hadn't done these in sequence - what a difference that makes. There're definitely things that I can apply in controlling communication cycles and in handling people with communication alone. I understand so much more about the reactive mind, about facsililes and how they follow electronic phenomena, about games and how a thetn creates mysteries for himself by not-knowing and so gets himself stuck. I just know more as a preclear and what an auditor is trying to do in session. I know about how much trouble thetans get into with agreements and I know that once a thetan can take over the automaticity of his facsimiles, he's in control of them and it doesn't matter if they're erased or not. Thanks to everyone here who keeps this place here and to Ron for all of this data - the books AND the lectures are so important to my understanding of all of this."

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

The Creation of Human Ability

E.Z. completed the Creation of Human Ability book course. He says, "This course was very good and helpful for me as an auditor. I got a lot of the theory behind the processes I run on my PCs. Very helpful. It make each of the processes make more sense in why we run them. Sweet!"

The Handbook for Preclears

M.C. completed the Book and Lecture course for The Handbook for Preclears. Here is what he has to say: "This course really helped me understand self-determinism and how it relates to the environment. It also helped me understand others' purposes."

Basics Book and Lecture Courses

Three students completed book and lecture courses on the Basics.

T.T. finished History of Man and Technique 88 and says, "Just by knowing more of where I've been helps to bring about hope of an understanding of the sources for aberrations held. By also balancing thought, flows and facsimiles will help to improve my tone, bring about more tone and rediscovered ability." D.P. also completed the book course and says, "This was an amazing book! I really learned a lot about why things and people are the way they are and I learned what's really on the whole track! I cannot wait to continue my auditing and handle it all."

D.W. finished Dianetics 55 and Unification Congress and says, "I feel like I have a much, much better understanding of communication and what I can do with it. I know how to get out of trouble with it by using it - if I get into trouble by communicatiing. Also I have a way to restore some former abilities by using it too - so that's really, really useful."

Thursday, February 19, 2009

The Creation of Human Ability

"I just completed The Creation of Human Ability and Phoenix Lectures course. This course gave me a really, really good understanding of beings and this universe and how it all goes together. The biggest win is really just undersatnding things that I have been trying to understand for so long. One of the wins on this course is that I've actually been able to get my garage set up as a workshop. It was sort of set up before but wasn't very workable. Thanks to Ron for all this data and to everyone at the mission who keep this place open for lost thetans like me." - D.W.

The Route to Infinity Lectures

M.H. and T.T. both completed the course on The Route to Infinity Lectures. Here are their success stories:

"I can see that it is important to make decisions and not maybes. Don't get held up in maybes. Cause is to be and making decisions to be."

"Another fine example of a set of lectures and course! This was enlightening."
