I have been following your postings to the list with great interest and I feel
that you have already made some valuable contributions to the list. I am
sending this reply to your request for "workable tech" to the whole list mainly
because I would like to know if anyone has had any experience of Robert
Detzler's "Spiritual Response Therapy" which I have recently become
Let me tell you something about myself first. I spent two years on staff at
London org in the mid eighties but rebelled against the mind control and have
had very little contact with the church since then. I knew though that Hubbard
had discovered some very valuable technology and I credit him with reversing my
downward spiral and helping me to claw my way back up from the depths to which
I had sunk. The main thing that I learnt from scientology is that you can
tackle the bank by confronting it on a gradient and this is what I have been
doing ever since. I have made slow but steady case gain simply by applying
this basic insight, over the years but would like to accelerate the process.
I have found the Internet and the freezone to be a very valuable source of
information and I am beginning to understand what went wrong with Hubbard and
Scientology. Like you I feel that LRH went off track in the mid
sixties and the
best explanation I have found for this was provided by fellow lister Christian
Jones who forwarded the notion that Ron got stuck in one of his own GPMs while
researching this area in the early sixties and assumed the "valence" of a
power- and money-hungry autocrat. He certainly abandoned research into actual
GPMs (as distinct from implant GPMs) in a very sudden manner and his growing
megalomania (as shown in his "Keeping scientology working" policy letter)
appears to date from this point onwards.
Since discovering the freezone about 1.5 years ago I have done extensive search
on the internet to try to identify the most promising of the new technologies
and advancements of the tech. I've read a lot of the pilot and the L
I like the pilot and think that he is a voice of reason on the internet. I
also liked L Kin's explanations of the basics of the tech but I'm not too sure
about some of the stranger aspects of his "s" book. I haven't seen
much to back up his account of the demise of Xenu and Yathrus (or even the
existence of Yathrus) and (as an engineer) I am very doubtful about his
assertions about Tesla free energy. I would welcome any comments from other
listers on this.
One interesting area I found lately has been the writings of "Revenius" at :
who started out by claiming that he was the re-incarnation of Hubbard as a 12
year old boy but later backed down somewhat and claimed only to be the "spirit"
of Hubbard. He doesn't appear to have posted since 2000 after being
during that year. I'd be interested in any theories as to his identity and
any views on his rundowns.
Anyhow back to Spiritual Response Therapy which I've become interested in this
recently. I'm not trying to sell anybody on this but rather to share my
experiences and hope to provoke a reaction. I got interested in this mainly
because some ex-scientologists are practicing it in the area of South Wales
that I live in. It's got no direct connection to scientology but has some
things in common. It goes for the basic of a chain but seeks to blow it
merely by identifying the energy flows relating to the incident. A
pendulum is used
with charts to identify incidents (most of which are whole-track) and
it works by addressing what is termed "higher self". I have only had one
session of this and have read the basic book, so I am no expert by any means
but I have been quite impressed by what I have seen so far. I found
itself unspectacular but spent the next few days having cognitions on the
subject area. It is a method which has seen rapid expansion over a very short
period of time and is very easy to learn and apply.
I intend to do a course in it at the end of the month which promises to train
me and "clear" me all over the course of a weekend. I'll let you know how
I get on.
Robert Detzler who developed Spiritual Response Therapy is a vicar or "man of
the cloth" and hence there are a lot of bible references in his writings which
I'm not very comfortable with, however his subject matter is very far from
conventional Christianity. Some of the more unusual things his technique
1. "Past lives in other dimensions" by which he means on other planets.
He claims that very often these have been located in the Pleiades
constellation and feature androgenous bodies but as they work in other
dimensions also then they cannot be viewed by people stuck in our dimension.
2. Future lives
3. Parallel lives. He claims that these range from 5 to 5849 lives which we
are living concurrently. Problems occur when the barriers between the lives
begin to break down.
He also has a cast of characters which include guardian angels, cherubs,
discarnates (body thetans to us) etc. and has the concept of a higher spirit
"committee" which guides your life end the spirit members of can be changed
according to requirements.
All pretty strange stuff (to my mind anyhow) but I have done an extensive
Internet search and have yet to discover anything negative written about him.
Apart from this, I have heard and read good things about PEAT (see article by
Christian Jones in the latest IVy) and this seems to be a fast and effective
I must point out at this stage that I don't have any auditor training apart
from doing a dianetics workshop many years ago and learning to do touch
assists so I can't claim any real expertise in this area.
Anyhow that's all I have to say for now. I am presently looking to
buy a zapper
online as I was impressed by what you had to say about your wife's asthma. My
daughter suffers from this as well so I am willing to give it a try. I don't
trust my electronic skills (or patience) enough to build one on my own though
so I'll be opting for one of the ready made models.
