If you were ever a fervent, KSW believing Scientologist, then you probably adopted Scientology to do your thinking and feeling for you. As a result, you may have had difficulty dismantling this cognitive apparatus from your mind and life to get your old self (the real you) back again.
[Yes, we know that you tried to escape that old self of yours in order to become something new – a Scientologist – but you will find, through this process, that there was very little of that old self that you had to escape.]
It’s an almost universal phenomenon among those who have left Scientology that they still maintain old thought and emotional habits from Scientology, and the process below is a basic process for recovering from it. Practicing this simple process certainly gets you moving on down the road from Scientology, if nothing else.
So here are a few simple steps that you can take to help clear(!) your cognition(*) of Scientology.
- Become acutely aware of your thinking and feelings every time you interpret something, such as a real life situation or person, using a Scientology term.
- Identify exactly what Scientology term you are using to interpret your real life.
- Find an Earth-based equivalent for it.
- Use the Earth-based equivalent instead.
There are other steps, and other approaches, of course. But this is the simplest and most powerful process to recover from Scientology that I know of. You will find that your cognition(*) becomes unstuck and you will start seeing things in new ways. You may even start learning new things in life that you thought were all “wrapped up” before!
Practice this for a week, and you will be amazed at the results.
