Increasing Awareness

D. W. finished the 1st ACC Lecture Course. She had these wins: "This course was wild beyond belief. Just finishing this course was a win in itself. My awareness keeps coming up on just studying all of this knowledge. I want to keep this up and go as fast as I can on this. When I'm doing stuff, I do it more quickly. I'm going faster."

More in Control of Problems in Life

S. P. finished the How To Get Motivated course. He had this to say about it: "This course was brief but really fun to do. It helped me get some tools to help me become cause and not let problems worry me so much. I feel more in control of some of the problems in my life and am ready to apply this course."

Making Life and Self Better

J. B. finished the Command of Theta course. He said this about it: " I thought this was really cool. There are a lot of interesting things I learned on this course that can be applied to make life better and myself better. It was very cool! Thanks Mr. Hubbard."

Learning How To Develop Self Confidence

L. J. completed the How to Achieve Self Confidence course. She had these wins: "This was a very significant course in my opinion. The wins that I achieved included having a better realization on how I can improve my life. I now understand that self confidence is no mystery and that if I attain the right qualities such as competency, professionalism and self trust, then I can develop my self confidence. The series on professionalism helped me realize that I can and must be a professional in all that I do in order to have the serenity in life which is derived from self confidence. I have a long way to go in terms of realizing my goals but reading through this course has made me more hopeful for the future."

Seeing the World's People as a Team

J. M. had the realization that the world is a team environment. Here are his words "I realized that the world and all its people are a team. It's comprised of many many smaller teams or simply put, small groups of people. I have a deeper understanding of the importance of these groups and how vital they are as a whole. The group is a living thing. It thinks, eats and resolves problems just like you and I. It can be made better to improve or not improve."

Understanding the Problems of Work

We had another super successful Personal Efficiency Course last Saturday!
This is what our graduates had to say:

"It was good to gain further certainty on this information. I will be able to communicate with my co-workers better and have more control of my tools at work. I also need to use the tools to handle and get rid of exhaustion. I see that it really works, simply and effectively."

"I know how to apply the things I learned in this film (The Problems of Work Film) and it will really help me make my life easier and it's really important to use this information."

"The section of the film about the 'Doctrine of a Stable Datum' helped me to understand why people will believe things that are actually not true and don't really work in their lives (such as "All men are bad"). They just picked that as a stable idea and have been continuing to use that idea. It really clears up a lot about how people act sometimes!"

Dianetics Making Sense

A. T. finished the Dianetics Book and Lectures course. He said "This was awesome to finally read Dianetics and learn about the subject for myself. I really liked seeing where Mr. Hubbard was coming from when he developed the subject. It's funny how a lot of the concepts make sense but at the same time seem outrageous. Maybe that's why it took man so long to figure it out."

The Simplicity of Facing

J. M. had a win while practicing confronting [the action of being able to face]. This is what he said: "I had a win on confronting. I realized that being there comfortably doesn't require thought. It's such a simplicity but resolves a lot of complexity. It's simply beautiful!"

Thanks to all the staff at the mission for all their assistance and patience." - F.L.

New Life Improvement Course: How to Achieve Self-Confidence

Are you directing your life? Become more certain of yourself. Gain Self-Confidence!

Self-confidence is something most people would like to have more of, but aren't sure how to get it. Did you every feel more certain of yourself in the past? Would you like to raise your self-confidence?

To increase self-confidence, you have to understand what reduces it. If you know why this happens, you can reverse the situation and rebuild your self-esteem.

"This was one of the most powerful courses I've ever taken. Other courses helped me handle specific parts of my life, but any of that can be blocked when part of the mind says 'you can't do anything.' The course helped me confront that part of the mind. Now I know what to do." V.J.

Come by and see us to sign up for this amazing course!

Understanding Infinity

R.W. finished the Route To Infinity Lectures course. He remarked: "This course gave me full knowingness of the process that Mr. Hubbard laid out for us to use and its effects are monumental. Once a person "knows", he becomes Infinity and is much more cause with his body."

Life Changing Data

J.B. finished the Scientology 8-80/Source of Life Energy book and lecture course. He had this to say about it: "Great Course! It changes the way one thinks about life and his point of view toward it. Ton's of super applicable data that changed my life! Thanks Mr. Hubbard!"

Learning to Handle Pain in Life

C.W. finished the course for the book Dianetics: Evolution of a Science. She had these wins: "This course has cleared up so many questions I've had in the past regarding the workings of the mind. I discovered the causes of aberration and essentially, the cause of the downfall of people and society as a whole. Along with that, my eyes have been opened to the way in which these problems can be eradicated. With this course, I will be more aware of the causes of my pain in life, and how I can overcome it, and help overcome the pain of others. If used correctly, and spread to others, the knowledge contained in this course can basically help society survive, rather than be destroyed."

Gaining Hope For A Beautiful Future

J.H. finished the Command of Theta lecture series. She said about it: "Mr. Hubbard continues to clearly define the capabilities and nature of human spirt, and the unthinking existence of the material universe, in terms of me and my friends and my body (and theirs), and pretty soon that material universe just fades into less and less importance and I get more and more hope for a truly endless and beautiful future. In fact, knowledge is power, isn't it? My thanks to Mr. Hubbard for the data and the Mission for making it available to study."

Thinking In A More Direct Way

J.H. completed the Technique88/Source Of Life Energy book and lectures course. She said this about the course: "Mr. Hubbard really goes all out in this book and lectures course, and I found my own considerations and thoughts becoming much simpler and more direct. And I'm less hung up on the body and this lifetime as an "end" in itself. I love the idea of disagreeing now - never really understood what this meant before. Sure makes the environment look a bit batty though! Thanks Mr. Hubbard and the Palo Alto Mission."

More Free and Certain As A Person

M.C. finished New Era Dianetics (NED) spiritual counseling. He had this to say: "I just finished NED. This was really great and handled a lot of charge. Each rundown was great and I'm a well and happy person. I cannot say enough to really explain, but I became more free and more myself. I am more stable as a spiritual being and more certain!."

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Feeling Better Physically

M. C. finished a spiritual counseling action. He said this: "I've just finished the Prepared Assessment Rundown. Really feeling good after this one!

I just have to laugh at it all."

Using Data Learned

D. W finished the 1st International Congress of Dianeticists and Scientologists lectures. She said this about them: "This was really interesting - like so much stuff I hope I can remember it all but somehow I will because I can use it.

Applying Data Learned To Life

This is what I always needed, a gradient that I could confront and win using, without the added factors of a meter and work sheets. It's great seeing the person I'm helping recover data."

Sunday, April 04, 2010

Bringing The Data of Dianetics Together

D. W. finished the Dianetics Professional Course lectures. Here is what she said about them: "This course had a whole lot of surprises for me. Mr. Hubbard is not going over old data again - it's like getting it in a whole new dimension, sort of like the difference in viewing something in black and white and two dimensions and then viewing it in color and three dimensions. This course is the best data and summary of Dianetics and it really brings it all together. Thanks, Mr. Hubbard for the data and to everyone here for being here."

Increasing One's Abilities

T. S. finished The First International Congress of Dianeticists and Scientologists . He explains his wins this way: "This was Great! One can increase his own abilities to operate as a spiritual being by applying the concepts in this series.

Success in Life

R. T. completed Life Repair spiritual counseling. This is 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 are her wins: "I have gained so much through Life Repair that it is hard to just share one success.

It has brought me closer to my son and freed me of my usual rushed and red face of hurry up or we'll be late. My son used to ask me if "I had my coffee" so I could return to present time. The biggest success is at work. I intended to get a position that I was told I could not have because someone else was going to be placed. That story did not have an impact on me because I knew it was something I could have without any negativity. Needless to say, I got the position. Eric is a fantastic Counselor and I highly recommend everyone do Life Repair. It is only the tip of the iceberg! More to come... "

Knowing One's Capabilities and What The Futre Holds

S.N.P completed The Route to Infinity lectures course. He said "This course was really good to finish as it covered a few very important topics. Specifically, I learned more about Cause and Effect, Beingness, Technique 80 and more which gave me a little more knowledge, not only about myself, but what I'm capable of and what the future holds."

Getting Data and Tools to Live Life Better

Without my attention units stuck on past misdeeds or other people's considerations, it will be fun!!!"

Knowing Exactly What To Do When Helping Someone

C. F. finished the Hubbard Dianetics Auditor course. She says: "This course covered every single scenario in the book Dianetics and taught me exactly what to do - it was super cool!"

Spiritual Gain

S. P. finished the book and lecture course Handbook for PreClears/The Life Continuum. He says: "This course was a lot of fun as it was the next step in the basics. The new discoveries and concepts he talked about, I can tell, are going to really help my spiritual gain if they haven't already. I enjoy learning the new information Ron discovered and I can't wait for the next book."

More Aware and More Able

TC completed Expanded Grade IV, which moves a person out of fixed conditions and gives them the ablity to do other things. Here is what she said about it: "Once again this grade seemed to be at a great gradient to face and go through! I thought it would be more intense than it was. I really keyed out when I found out what some of my service facsimiles [a consideration that one must be consistently in a certain state in order to survive] were and I feel more aware now - of myself and what I know and what is going on in my environment. I feel more able."

No More Pain

A.J.M. completed a Dianetics assist auditing program. He says: "I have definitely had a HUGE win during the assist because before I couldn't do anything that involved my back for too long because it would start to hurt. But I feel because I have had this auditing program that pain in my back will not continue and I will be able to do Freshman Football."

Negative Aspects of Life Disappearing!

R. W. is being counseled on New Era Dianetics Auditing and had this to say about his experience: "It's utterly amazing when one finds "THAT" postulate [a conclusion, decision or resolution made by the individual himself ] which seems soooo true to you and you say "What was all that about?". It no longer STICKS!! It's gone!! If you're ready to go on to New Era Dianetics Auditing don't stop - don't delay because this is where the Funk/Junk disappears!! GONE! You have gone this far and now you're feeling pretty good but this is where it gets handled forever!!"
