Building reality using the OCA

Life, the Universe and LRHs Bridge

head in handsBy Mark Shreffler

The OCA is a critical tool  in the process of bridging the reality of what we have with what the prospect needs.

The OCA, though, is what happens AFTER a person has been Safe-Pointed.  The OCA means nothing to him and he will not reach for it unless the prior steps have been done effectively. These steps amount to the “PR runway.”

It can be as simple as a two-minute enlightenment step on a website, or as complex as a series of services leading up to a reach from the person to find out more about what is here based upon the wins he has had so far.

The first of these is where the OCA is used as a first-step contact point with the public.  If this is the case, the public approaches this profile as more of a curiosity or an interesting way to waste…

About this blog

Every day we are getting communication from people who are seeking the right path to spiritual enlightenment. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. We have been badly backlogged  but it is always nice to hear from you.

Hello Pierre,

 I want to thank you for all the info on your blog. It really has gotten me closer to confronting my own dynamics and wanting to go OT. I am going to continue reading your blog and frankly feel safe doing so knowing you have done so much and have a lot of experience with the tech. I have a ton of questions. I would be honoured if you would be a terminal for me in my quest for the truth. I have been a Scientologist since the late 60s.

 My Best,

Dear Pierre:

 I have followed your blog over the past year, having been affiliated with the church. It has been helpful and enlightening in many ways. I am a successful executive in Europe. I also work in the US and South America from time to time. I advanced in my auditing, and couple of years ago I desisted in my auditing as I had clear differences with the church. I underwent endless ethics sessions trying to fix the matter, saw many things in session, and yet, the situation did not change, reason for which I decided to go on with my life as the Way to Happiness preaches, rather than being forced to be something that I feel I should not. However, this radical disconnection from source is difficult as my spiritual goals remain stagnant for the time being. I am hesitating whether or not to go back to auditing in the church. I thank you for your efforts to heighten the values of this spiritual path. It has been soothing and helpful in understanding many points of confusion.

 Thank you,

Signed

Dear Mr. Ethier,

[Introduction]…..I became aware of Scientology in the 90-es and had life-changing win right away. Since then it has been over two decades of unsuccessful trying to achieve any progress or win despite my efforts, involvement and resources spent. In the last couple of years, as I could see within Scientology organizations I visited for help increasing outpoints which were in direct conflict with my purposes to achieve positive changes to my life. I felt indoctrinated and started to look for alternatives and data to explain what I saw in the Church. That is how I found your videos and your blog and that is how I decided to contact you. I don’t want to waste your time by writing long stories about my experience nor I would expect any technical opinions based on e-mail communication. To be perfectly honest, I don’t know really, what to do, it seems, after all I did and tried, I would need some expert handling that I believe I can get in the Church. Would it be possible to get some help and guidance from you?

Yours Sincerely

Hi Pierre,

A few years back, I hit a point where I was in need of some answers and became willing to communicate with anyone or anything to come up with some answers. I’ve found plenty of answer. I never knew how deep the rabbit hole went.

I’ve enjoyed your Web site, I enjoy your blog.

Best,

Hello Pierre,

Many months ago I have contacted you because I just got mad by loosing hope how to go up on the bridge without Cos…..

Also I was not in the best shape in my life, may be you remember….

Since than I have signed contract with a college in business management. I just wanted a new community in my life and also to start  “using”my mind again. And got a job too..

Successful. 🙂

I am always following your blog and today in the morning a “miracle ” happened…

One thought  has been crawling in my mind….. what is my purpose in my life ???

WHAT IS THAT. ??????????????? I NEVER GOT ANSWER FOR IT…..


I understand if you do not know what you want to achieve in your life you are not going anyway and without purpose you are screwed…..

So . Yesterday I got 7 e mail by you and I started to read them……

I finished to read  in middle of the ” winning on the L 11 expanded ” article and I went to sleep with a thought… what should I do in my life… Today in the morning I got to a local mall to have a breakfast and a nice coffee, I continued reading that article….. And my mind blow….. your PC gave me an answer by his gains…. he said it does not matter what was the purpose earlier… what is important that what he want to set in the present time. Here & NOW!

When I read it again …. I just wanted to hit the concrete wall with my head like a bull. How could I be so nuts to decade  not to realize this???????

So thank you and to your PC and of course to Ron to make my day and maybe my future… :):)

For sure I want to be your PC soon as possible.

Best wishes

Dear Pierre,

My husband and I are catching up on the history of the church. We learned so much from your website and especially your YouTube videos. Thanks for making them.

We stopped participating  after I received extremely vicious and destructive auditing. This was after seeing out point after out point for years. We only recently learned of the mass defections. Right now it looks like very few public are participating in services, since Leah Remini departed.

I would like to get that terrible cycle repaired sometime.

Thank you.

Dear Pierre,
Thank you for your great website.
I started in Scientology just after the GAT release. As years went by, we noticed more and more that things were not being done right and corrections were not being made. The events got stranger and stranger. The quality of public got worse and worse (status/power seekers, people looking for customers for their business). We got busy with our lives and did not continue, which we are thankful for.
I trained to Class IV and audited many hours on that and have read most of the NED and Grad V material. I loved auditing but the crazy cramming cycles and f’d up auditing I got myself ended it all. I am enjoying reading your technical criticism and those of other defectors.
I am afraid of a declare order. I’ve already been harassed with nutty orders. Even the IJC told me to get a Board of Review on an order that contained an opinion and generality and not one specific. Also, the org never sent me the order – I learned about it when friends saw it posted.
Truthfully, I’d prefer to write them a letter and tell them I’m disconnecting from David Miscavige & Co., but we have our lives to think about, you know? So many Scientologists in our area and it would be hard on everyone.
After getting spiritually raped in auditing as my last action, I decided I would NEVER get auditing again.
Thanks for your informative site and for having the courage to stand up to Miscavige so long ago.
ARC,

When I was in my teens I decided that I would find the “meaning of life”. I have always known that I was a spiritual being. When I took biology in high school I remember getting angry when the teacher insisted that life was the result of evolution. I just knew that couldn’t be true.   I opened my mind and read many books – every topic from reincarnation to witchcraft. I even read the Bible and parts of the Koran. I also read many psychology and self-help books. And in college I devoured philosophy and religion classes.

But after so much searching I was rather disappointed. Occasionally, I found bits of information that I knew were true, but mostly I found theories that just didn’t make sense or that painted a very pessimistic picture of the human race.

One day I picked up a copy of Dianetics. I tore through it in a matter of days and I couldn’t put it down! It explained the real reason why people are unhappy and why they don’t get what they want in life. With my progressing up the spiritual path , I became so much happier, had more energy and enthusiasm for life, and my memory improved. It was a life changing experience.

I have a marriage many people would envy. I learned the tools of communication and how to make relationships work. My marriage NEVER would have happened otherwise. Best of all, I know that my life will continue to get better.

Bonjour Pierre!

A friend of mine gave me your name & I had your number. I want to thank your for that beautiful page of yours. I loved it, the music & all the things on your page. You have incredible affinity, even towards those who are not good towards you. You are a very theta being. I will like to be always in a theta situation & beingness, as you. When I leave this body too.. I will like to go through the upper bridge. I am postulating we can find all the unaltered versions of LRH tech. 🙂

Merci,

Wins on L 11 Expanded

Reprinted from: http://isene.wordpress.com/2011/06/26/significant-change

“A few months ago I went to the end of civilization and had a profound change of viewpoint. I will always remember and always cherish that trip to Endesh, the village in northern Tanzania. It gave my viewpoints in life a real shaking.

But that just isn’t enough.

A change like that is great, yes, but it just can’t beat looking at my own fundamental viewpoints, purposes and flaws. A real and systematic look at myself. To become a better person, to regain my self.

That just happened.

In less than a week I have gone through a significant change. I found a very basic flaw in my character that has diminished my potential since a very long time – a flaw that has gotten me into trouble almost daily. Sometimes it would result in just small daily issues, small road bumps. Occasionally it would give me more serious problems. And I just tackled this flaw.

If that wasn’t enough, I also had a look at a very fundamental purpose of mine in a whole new light. I discovered why I have the ambitions I have and why it sometimes makes me go in wrong directions or sometimes in no direction at all. I understand why I do what I do.

Now these, to me, are significant changes. And they have come from some serious soul searching.

I haven’t had Scientology auditing since 2006 (when I attested to OT 8). In the past week, one of the best trained auditors in the world, Piere Ethier has been staying in our house giving me something really powerful called L11 (List 11). Like me, Pierre has left the Church of Scientology and gives counseling outside the reach of the Scientology Thought Police. For a mere fraction of the price charged in the CoS, I have gotten more than I could ask for, more significant change than I hoped for. Truly inspiring stuff.”

“So I completed L11 Expanded today (a Scientology counseling action)

L11 + Expanded is the most precise action I have ever done. And with the most direct results. Freakin’ awesome.

I have for a while been searching for “my basic purpose” in life. Now guess what – that is irrelevant. It doesn’t fucking matter. My purpose is whatever I decide it to be. Here & Now.

And I used to be affected or wounded or hurt by others to make others guilty of hurting me. A dirty trick that affected my (and others’) daily life. That’s now gone.

Past matters not.
What exists is here & now.
And my intentions paint the future.

Pierre Ethier is easily the best auditor (counselor) I have ever had (out of some 40-50 up through the years).

If you are still in the Church of Scientology wondering if there is any hope outside, well I can tell you this; This right here is the real deal. You may instead wonder if there is any hope inside the church. I know my own answer to that question, and that is why I left.”

PC was glowing after session

Note that Pierre’s reputation as Flag’s best auditor is verified by David Graham who was C/S at Flag’s case cracking section at the time. He posted his story on ESMB under his nom de plume ” Mate”.

bb [ Terril Park]

This one is simply amazing. The pc was glowing after session. a truly remarkable result:

——

I have been in Scientology for over 25 years. During that time I trained to Class V Interned in Milan. I have never been on staff.  I have been a rather successful businessman and always had gains in Scientology auditing and Rundowns until the year 2001, when for a reason that is a yet unclear to me, I was made to do 10 intensives of sec-check, mainly cleaning cleans, once spending 3 hours on a question that asked if I had been a member of the CIA, when I am an Italian  Citizen and my only trips to the United States have been to get auditing in Clearwater, Florida, at the Flag Land Base.  My auditors at Flag, when I told them I felt clean, were, while in session, intensely hostile to me. More than once when I was literally driven to despair and on the edge of bursting in a cry of despair, pursing what I felt was a false read, I was told by my Flag auditors, with contempt in their voice, to “knock it off”. and “fess off to the withold” I was made to redo Solo NOts all over again, when I felt there was nothing wrong with it. I was told that it was IMPOSSIBLE to get a blow or Ep of a process on that level unless I had a blowdown on each and every action. This is based on a confidential “Directive” blow anything written by David Miscavige that ”anyone who claims to get a blow or process EP on Solo NOTs without a full Blowdown is simply at the case level of “DUB-IN” and imagining things. When I politely queries that a non-LRH directive could not alter LRH written HCOBs, I was immediately routed to Ethics and told in unclear that questioning the validity of the writings of David Miscavige was in itself a suppressive act. I was sent back for more sec-checking. Each time I said I had an ARCX, a disagreement or even the few times I burst into tears, I was asked one question and one question only: “What withold has been missed”. I somehow managed to get through the wall of sec-checking and the redo of Solo NOTs, at a cost of more than 80,000 Euros, once I learned the valuable session that it is no longer safe to tell what one thinks in session, and the only other choice given to me by the Ethics officer, over unquestioning obedience was being declared a Supressive person and that each of my Scientology employees (more than a dozen of them) would be told to disconnect from a destructively as possible, the goal being apparently to make me bankrupt and destitute in the process. I redid OT VIII on the Freewinds. This was not a pleasant experience. Even the few times I was allowed to go on shore, I was being continually watched by my HCO Escort, in a manner that was reminiscent of the treatment given to Westerners when they visited and Iron Curtain country at the height of the Cold War..

I started to question within myself what level of Degradation Scientology had fell into…

In the 5 years since I “completed” OT VII and VIII for the second time, I found myself, for the first time in my life not doing well and in a state of apathy toward my life, my family and my business. The Church was no longer an answer. I went on the Internet, found the FreeZone and got a few sessions from a highly trained auditor. Though the sessions did not make me feeel worse, they did not resolve anything and I very soon sank into hopelessness.

I then found Pierre Ethier, an auditor who trained and interned at Flag as a Class XII auditor. Pierre Ethier was a legendary name at Flag in the 1980s and early 1990s, among us Italians (and among Mexicans and Spaniards as well, I am told). He had a reputed as the best auditor there was.

Not only did he audit the most hours of any auditor at Flag, every single pc who was ever audited by him had nothing but great wins and stories to tell.

I met Pierre at a sumptuous villa right on the shore of Lake Como. He did a short and to the point interview and then took 15 minutes to write what he said was a |
“tailor made program strictly based on the C/S Series”. The session was fantastic! It opened my eyes which had remained shut from years of suppression and out-tech! I was recognized and acknowledge for who I was.

That short 1/2 hour session was indeed TRUTH Revealed. I lost not only a huge mass from my shoulders, I feel 10 years younger. revitalized, bright. My future looks good again. It has been exactly one week since I had my session with Pierre, and I still feel great. For the first time in over 10 years, I found myself whistling just for the fun of it.

Pierre you have my eternal gratitude for what you have done. Of course my thanks to LRH, whose tech Pierre duplicated so well.

Review

I have been so busy enjoying my wins and my life after my NOTs Review, that only now am I writing this belated success. Prior to my Review, I was concerned and introverted by some of the situations I have to face daily in my life and in my job. Since then, the exact opposite is true. Not a week goes by, without manifesting my increased skills and ability that just makes things go right. My heartfelt thanks go to my Case Supervisor, Class XII Pierre Ethier, and to my auditor. I have been so busy playing bigger and bigger games that I had overlooked thanking them appropriately until now. Through the years, I had actually become the adverse effect of a few unscrupulous business men. I had done several thousands of hours of unguided Solo NOTs auditing and was slowly going nowhere. Prior to my Review, I had experienced some wins and even a few occasional Floating TAs, but there was no change in my chronic conditions and in my life problems. Since then, as the months fly by, my gains each day appear completely stable. My games are each month bigger and bigger. I derive great satisfaction from it, and from a true return of my powers. It is even fun to watch those who acted until now Suppressively getting tired of failures and shrinking, and starting to change their ways. Needless to say there are significant material and monetary rewards as well…

My review was nothing but a complete standard application of the tech per the C/S Series. It blew any false datum I ever heard that incorrectly states that NOTs is either inflexible, robotic or does not address what someone needs and wants. A completely tailored NOTs approach cracked my case in hours. NOTs is actually the most flexible Technology in existence and can be made to very precisely tailor any case and anyone. Not only is my case cracked but my chronic breathing disorder is gone!!! In the hands of a true expert, NOTs, a Technology much maligned because of its obvious misapplication, actually perform miracles when done correctly by someone who is a true expert.

I will never be thankful enough.

Superpower

“My experience of the Superpower RD was fantastic. Do I have new “superpowers?” Of course not. Do I feel more serene, capable, and causative? Yes. I am always happy getting auditing from Pierre. The TR’s are truly incredible and always feel completely understood and duplicated. It also interesting to note this week some incredible professional opportunities was presented to me. Feeling more authentic as a human being and also more aware of both my individuality as well as connection to the vastness of life. Authenticity and Individuality. Thank you to LRH for his genius.”

 

OT VIII Review

Dear Pierre,

I’m back in L.A. and noticing the results from the auditing you gave me. My wife told me that she noticed that I had no charge in my space. I notice that I laugh more now and am a lot more optimistic about the future. There are fewer stoops on my lines. I will start on a study schedule soon and am looking forward to starting up auditing again, which I will do after getting back from visiting my wife’s family over Christmas. I had a call from an old PC who wants me to start working with her and her husband on an admin scale. My friend also continues to be completely blown out after completing the Ls!
I gave your contact data to my brother, and he will contact you. My wife is excited about doing her L’s and starting on OT7 when you come here.
Someone today posted your write up about your Flag experience, and I read it. In that environment, the group is everything, and the individual nothing. Your account made it abundantly clear that if there is any single answer to surviving such a situation, it is keeping your own personal integrity in. If you can do that, you can land on your feet and do better than ever.
Again, thanks for everything, not just for the great sessions, but also for the generosity of your communications. The data that you give me and the questions that you answered were extremely helpful to me as well.
Love,
(Signed)

L 11 Completion

As someone who recently completed L 11 I can tell you that the results are all that they are cracked up to be.

I expected a wham bam sort of auditing but this was gentle and patient and just the right gradient. Yet it really dug deep and resulted in my feeling so much calmer and serene within myself yet exuberant also and feeling so much more up tone!

Pierre’s delivery of the Ls is spot on, done with excellent arc and with great guidance to exactly what needs to be handed for that individual.

Auditing on these levels is not about creating startling effects or floating out of the window.

It is about achieving more stability and awareness as a individual and about becoming a better person.

It is also very subjective. You can describe the wonders of a far off land to someone who has never been there but they will never appreciate the colors and beauty of it in quite the same way as you do, until they go there.

Success on OTVII

When Pierre asked if I would like to attest, I felt the burden of millions of years of enslavement finally lift from my shoulders. I am very excited to be me and only me. More than any other, I feel this level was a huge accomplishment for me because I have had OT abilities turning on. I am fascinated by the possibilities. I also feel a great satisfaction in that the level provided me an opportunity to help so many others.

I first became aware of Scientology in 1964. When I first read the DMSMH, it was a wakeup call. There was a way out. I was in college at the time but after I saw John McMasters (the first Clear) in Washington, DC at a seminar, I knew that I had to get involved. I dropped out of college and went to DC for processing and training. A couple years later I was in LA and became Clear 2866. Then I took a long break and got on with my life.

I went to Flag. The training and processing I received were great. But when I tried to get on the OT courses, I came up head to wall on my first block. Interestingly, it was not my case that was in question but that of my wife. She resented any changes the Church wanted her to make and I finally realized that I was not going to change her and concluded “why should I?” However, I was stuck. I sat in my hotel room for 3 weeks waiting for approval to continue but it became obvious I was not going to get it. That’s when I blew Flag.

I resolved to just purchase all the tapes and other materials I could get my hands on and spend the rest of my life studying Scientology. While purchasing books one of the sellers gave me a call. In chatting with him I learned of the Freezone where processing and training could be had outside the Church.

I was able to get a rebate on my unused monies in the CofS and then Ken Urquhart took me to OTV. It seemed that my wife was not a factor after all. Later I received the L’s from Pierre and did the OTVI course and then Pierre C/S’ed me through OTVII. It is interesting to note that I was able to take that refund which I had saved only to reach OTIII in the CofS and use it to pay for OTII through OTVII with the L’s thrown in as well.

It is now my intention to go to OT XV with Pierre. I look forward to what I know will be an exciting and very rewarding journey. My thanks to Ken Urquhart, and a very special thanks to Pierre Ethier. It is dedicated people like these two that keep Scientology working and there for the rest of us. It is comforting to know that there are Scientologists who still practice Standard Tech.

Success Story

First, I want to say that I value Pierre so much. He is a thetan of greatness, kindness, and many stories. I have been off the bridge for many years.
Pondering on what I could possibly handle in a weekend had me perplexed. But I knew I had to start somewhere. I thought maybe I was a lost cause.
It would seem that standardness of the tech is the cure.
Looking back over the weekend, it is now an amazement  of what I handled in just under 5 hours with Pierre.
Repaired, relieved, and certain, and looking forward to more.
For the first time in so long,  I am truly excited about doing my OT Levels and moving on up.
I now know for sure I am Clear.  This has been a very long time confusion for me, and I have attested and unattested several times.
I will not have to address the subject again.
I feel very fortunate.
Thank you Pierre (with lots of joy).
