Ron Hubbard technically and I hope to join the hundreds (if not thousands) of other people that have escaped.

Manipulating Children Is Easy

I have no idea what I don't know. None of us do. Punishment for a child and adult are the same in Scientology. I explain one of the many methods used to control me, my sister and every member. How is this OK? Why is it done? One thing that has been proven is a child's brain growth follows a specific path as they get age. If you took a chunk of time out of a child's life (say age 5 until 25) and taught them they were not a child at all but that they were an adult in a small body, kicked them...

I was only 6 or 7 when the cult of Scientology took over my life. I explain how this happened to me, my little sister and my mom. I found a handwritten letter my mother wrote that helped fill in the blanks. We were a happy NORMAL family of 3. Single mom and two little girls. What happened that would convince my mother to make an awful decision that would end up tearing up our entire family tree and feeding it into a shredder NEVER to be put back together.

As a Sea Org member, I had to keep my pregnancy secret. I knew what had happened to other women that got pregnant: they were sent away to strange and unknown places to run small and failing Scientology organizations (they don't call them churches). I was getting sick a lot and that means you are in trouble and sent to the Ethics Officer to "figure out" what you are doing to cause your sickness. That's when I spilled the beans and was immediately branded an unethical human. Why would I choose...

So you've got extreme pain, maybe a broken arm or leg, fever, terrible headache? Most parents in the real world would dig in to find out why or what happened FIRST! Chances are high that you'd likely get a hug or kiss to comfort you. That is not how things go in Scientology for children (BABIES TOO!!) or adults. In my podcast I share with you what the absolute go-to solution is for all illnesses, pains or discomfort to heal you. After this sort of "handling" over and over, you just stop...

I discovered my W2 from 1986 when I worked for the Church of Scientology International. My pay was $1202.94. My hours worked were over 5,000 in that year! This would be $4.24 an hour. On paper, I was being paid by the C of S as a Sea Organization member having signed a billion-year contract when I was 15 years old. My last year of public education was 1982. I signed the contract in 1983. In this podcast, I give you a good idea of what life was like for me working for Scientology in 1986...
