How to join Scientology

Scientology is viewed by its practitioners as a practical method of self-improvement, largely misunderstood and often criticized. If you are curious to explore and join Scientology, distinguishing between fact and fiction is your first step. Learn more about the basic concepts of Scientology and how to further explore this philosophy.

First part of three:
Understand Scientology

  1. 1 Understand what Scientology is. Scientologists view their religion as a practical philosophy or method of self-realization, more so than a religion in the strictest sense of the word. As a religion, Scientology is relatively new, ranging from L. Ron Hubbard's mid-century self-improvement method to the exploration and auditing of the past called Dianetics.
    • There is a spiritual mythology related to Scientology that may bring some sci-fi to the uninitiated, but Scientology itself is more about practice than belief in the system. Scientologists believe that the inner self is a "cosmic" being, something that lives outside of the body and that must be properly cared for in your care.
    • Applying the principles of tone scale and dynamics to your life is designed to help eradicate the dependence of modern society on mood-altering substances and other primarily commercial methods of "self-improvement".
  2. 2 Inform you. More than any other contemporary religion, Scientology is widely criticized and ridiculed in popular culture for a variety of reasons. Scientology calls itself a religion but is often accused of being a cult, a pseudo-religion[1]or a pyramid scheme[2]. If you are planning to join Scientology, it is important to find out about it from a variety of sources rather than relying on official Scientology statements.
    • According to Scientology, the organization does not make it impossible to "leave" the church, nor do they prohibit the use of certain drugs. However, Scientology has been accused of acting like a totalitarian system separating its members from friends, colleagues, or family members who are considered hostile to Scientology.[3] In addition, Scientology strongly opposes the medical specialties of psychiatry and psychology.[4]
  3. 3 Find out what to expect from Scientology. If you choose to explore Scientology, there is much that you should learn and learn. Some of the vocabulary can be disorienting right now. So once you have an idea of ​​what to expect when you first explore something, you can master the somewhat complicated waters of Scientology.[5]
    • Dianetics is the original method invented by Hubbard as a method of self-improvement in relation to a mind-body connection. The goal of Dianetics is to get your "reactive mind" out of the way, which leads to a happier, more fulfilled state of being.
    • Thetans They are believed to be immortal beings, insubstantial in nature, that rule your body. Scientologists believe that thetans create life and exist beyond death independent of our bodies. This is essentially the Scientological conception of the human soul. Practicing Scientology and finding practical use from it does not require you to "believe" in thetans in the strictest sense of the word.
  4. 4 Obtain introductory literature from the Church. It would be impossible to precisely describe the broad range of ideas that Scientology represents in a few hundred words. The Church is known for the ease of access and volume of reading materials associated with it, so contact the Church of Scientology through their website and request literature. It's usually free.
    • Scientology: A Religious Philosophy by L. Ron Hubbard outlines the basic principles of Scientology, although more digestible volumes are often produced by the church for easier consumption.
    • In general, when requesting materials, you are likely to be inundated with more boxes than you know what to do. This is a promotional tactic used by the church to get the word out. Be forewarned and expect lots of books.

Second part of three:
Joining the Church

  1. 1 Attend a regional conference. One of the most common ways to learn more about Scientology is to attend a regional conference in your area where Scientologists meet for discussion and recruitment. These tend to meet annually in large cities and are an excellent opportunity for those interested. It's also a great place to collect free or cheap Scientology literature so you can learn more on your own.
  2. 2 Find a weekly convention near you. If you would like to attend Scientology services and meetings on a regular basis, find a church near you and contact them. Express your interest in joining the Church. You can find a Church of Scientology branch near you by clicking here.
    • The actual process of joining the church will differ depending on the particular branch of the church itself and the other Scientologists. Most cities will not have more than one branch, however, so doing much research is difficult.
    • If you don't like the church in your city, consider reading and developing your own practice. Again, it's a handy method and you do most of the work yourself.
  3. 3 Talk to other Scientologists. Scientologists are not part of any mysterious celebrity cult or shadowy Illuminati, and meeting some for discussion and fellowship can answer many of your questions and alleviate many of your concerns. Regular people from all walks of life practice Scientology. Meet and talk to them.
    • Church and regional conferences are of course the best places to meet other practitioners, but you may find more informal discussion groups in your area. Consider starting a book group in your city.
  4. 4 Consider completing an audit. The auditing is completed by meeting with an experienced Scientologist who will guide you through the process, ask questions, and read your thetan quality with an e-meter.[6] It is very similar to the Scientology "confession". Completing an exam is very much like crossing past life or regression therapy and a simple visit to the doctor. You will basically sit down and talk to a Scientologist and answer a few questions. That's it.
    • When you join a church, church audits are conducted on a regular basis. Field auditors and mission auditors are also frequently sent on trips, like a long-standing evangelical revival, to bring the Word out and show people what Scientology is about. This can be a great way to experience your first audit and see if it's right for you.

Part three of three:
Develop your practice

  1. 1 Make a commitment to improve your life. The Church of Scientology claims that the method works 100% of the time for people who are fully committed to using it. However, there is a lot of real work in this commit full. Do you want to improve your life and achieve a state of contentment and contentment? Are you ready to do what it takes? If you are interested in Scientology, it is necessary to open up with an open mind and dedicate yourself fully to changing your life for the better.
  2. 2 Begin to rate your emotions on the tone scale. The tone scale is used in auditing to place your general attitude and emotional state anywhere on a quantifiable scale ranging from +40 (serenity of being) to -40 (total failure). Depending on your situation, your attitudes will drop in different places on the tone scale at any one time.
    • It's okay to explore the tone scale on your own, but it's also important to have a skilled auditor walk you through the process to better incorporate the concepts into your practice.
  3. 3 Take into account the dynamics of your actions. Dynamology is an integral part of Scientology and refers to the eight classifications of survival that Scientologists believe are an integral part of changing your life for the better. A person goes through various dynamics over the course of a lifetime, the first of which is an innate desire to survive. Babies have this desire, and so do animals, but we gradually go through different levels of consciousness-body over the course of a lifetime devoted to improvement.[7] This is a lifelong struggle. The eight dynamics are as follows:
    • Self
    • creativity
    • Group survival
    • species
    • Life forms
    • Physical universe
    • Spiritual dynamic
    • infinity
  4. 4 Receive regular audits to stay on track. The life of a Scientologist involves receiving period audits, assessing your personal growth and stages of improvement, and realigning your practice with where you are going. Receiving periodic audits is an essential part of improving your life and practice as a Scientologist in order to balance your mind-body alignment.
