good life photo 2
I’m sharing this as living proof that one can have a very good life outside of Scientology and the friends one made there, are still friends once they get the truth.
I can’t thank Leah and Mike enough for Scientology Aftermath Seasons I and 2, and all those who have braved the storm and come out publicly with their stories.
Had it not been for their efforts we would not have the support team that exists now, let alone a hope or prayer of getting long-overdue justice for the countless abuses and heartless disconnections from family and friends.
That said, a friend of mine, who reconnected with me, produced this marketing video as a surprise. It’s a real kick. Notes: I posted it earlier, but it needed a small bit of tweaking. Also the voices on the testimonies are not those of the clients in the photos that were used.
Feedback most welcome and if anyone needs a Marketing Video produced, I highly recommend my friend.

Who needs a “Bridge to Total Freedom”,  when you can “Follow the Yellow Brick Road” and discover that “everything you were looking for was right there with you all along”?!

Dorothy

My life journey, from birth to this moment, has been eventful to say the very least.  It commenced with conflicted parents and an unhappy, eventually, broken home, developed into “wanderlusting” and a search for answers, proceeded to 37 years in a cult that was going to “save the world”, shifted “stage left” into the real world in my menopausal years and recently landed me back on my feet, with my head held high, enjoying the best years of my life.

The most cathartic experience of all that spanned the past two years plus and put me on the right track, was the process of composing and then publishing my story.   However,  I soon discovered that the journey was far from over.   Little did I know the host of amazing adventures yet to come!

It should be no surprise, that my most joyful moments have involved relationships with wonderful people.  And yes, my pets along the way- those were precious too.

In my recent travels and consequent discussions with many people who had been involved in the same cult I was in,  I have discovered common threads…

It was the amazing, special people, most all of whom had big hearts and were truly searching for a path to make a difference in the world, that not only attracted us, but caused us to turn a blind eye to abuse and made it difficult to leave.

The “philosophy” and “teachings”,  weren’t all that “mind blowing” to captivate and make us fearful of “leaving the fold”.

Truth is, none of us were all that “messed up”.   We were already very decent people going through what was normal for everyone in our age group, a phase of life that most learn valuable lessons and blossom from.

So, when it all comes down to it:

Who needs a “Bridge to Total Freedom”,  when you can “Follow the Yellow Brick Road” and discover that “everything you were looking for was right there with you all along”?!

 

If you haven’t read “Commodore’s Messenger Book One” by Janis Gillham Grady, I highly recommend you do so.

Janis is an excellent writer, with a great sense of humor too.

Her story is also very unique in that her parents (both admired and very well-respected) got involved in the cult before she was even born.

On top of that she spent years working side by side with L Ron Hubbard.  So, if anyone can give an accurate account, she absolutely can.

Reading her story has helped me further connect the dots and has been very cathartic to say the least.

My hat is off to Janis for having the courage to leave the cult and make a life for herself in the “outside world” as well as for publishing her story despite the threat of backlash from the litigious cult of scientology.

 

 

I read Chris Shelton’s Book, “Scientology: A to Xenu” and it is such a good read and he nails it so well,  I just had to write a blog about it.

If you haven’t read it yet, it is an absolute must.  Chris leaves no stone unturned, answering just about every question anyone could ask.

It is especially beneficial to those who are still recovering from years of entrapment in Scientology, let alone any other cult.

There are so many aspects of it that struck me.  One is particular was about Hypnotism.  It wasn’t until I read it that a conversation I had with my sister 10 years ago (when I was still in) made sense.   At that time she was training to be a hypnotherapist and told me that the curriculum included reading parts of “Dianetics”.

A final note…

I am so very grateful to Chris for helping me publish my book: “Over the Edge- A Pawn in the Scientology Money Machine”.  He not only did the final edit, proofing and design work but also uploaded to CreateSpace and KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing).  On top of that, he was my adviser and featured me on “Sensibly Speaking” and a Podcast.

I couldn’t have chosen a more fitting individual to connect with.  So, if you haven’t read his book as yet, I highly recommend that you do.

“What About Us” has become one of my all time favorite songs.  Further, although it is related to politics, it is so very fitting to Cults, particularly scientology, l ron hubbard and david miscavige. Note: No caps necessary for the aforementioned.
Some other significant “ahas” I’d like to share…
People who get involved in cults do so when they are vulnerable.  You will not find those who are confident and doing well in life falling for it.
Those who wake-up and pull themselves away from cults have at least a little “rebel” in them.  They are generally, free-spirits, out of the box-thinkers and non-conformists at heart.   And no, they did not acquire these personality traits from the “cult”.
The “cult” makes a point of taking credit for anything good that happens to their followers” but claims no responsibility for anything bad.
what about usLyrics

La da da da da, la da da da da
Da da da

We are searchlights, we can see in the dark
We are rockets, pointed up at the stars
We are billions of beautiful hearts
And you sold us down the river too far

What about us?
What about all the times you said you had the answers?
What about us?
What about all the broken happy ever afters?
What about us?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
What about love? What about trust?
What about us?

We are problems that want to be solved
We are children that need to be loved
We were willin’, we came when you called
But, man, you fooled us, enough is enough, oh

What about us?
What about all the times you said you had the answers?
What about us?
What about all the broken happy ever afters?
Oh, what about us?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
Oh, what about love? What about trust?
What about us?

Oh, what about us?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
What about love? What about trust?
What about us?

Sticks and stones, they may break these bones
But then I’ll be ready, are you ready?
It’s the start of us, waking up, come on
Are you ready? I’ll be ready
I don’t want control, I want to let go
Are you ready? I’ll be ready
‘Cause now it’s time to let them know
We are ready, what about us?

What about us?
What about all the times you said you had the answers?
So what about us?
What about all the broken happy ever afters?
Oh, what about us?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
Oh, what about love? What about trust?
What about us?

What about us?
What about us?
What about us?
What about us?
What about us?
What about us?

I’m starting off 2018 with a bang!   My life is jam-packed, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My book is still live on the Amazon market and getting it’s share of sales.  But better than that, I’ve had numerous re-connections as a result and have been able to help many people get closure.

I’m in the planning stage of creating an entire series of books and podcasts featuring biographies of individuals who have unleashed themselves from toxic relationships and/or addictions.

My Fitness Program is going well.  I have finally squashed the bad/unhealthy habits and replaced them with good ones that I am confident I can maintain for life.

Despite the slow season, I’m still active as a Realtor in NE.  I am very grateful for my KW sponsor (Jan) who is helping me deliver excellent service to my clients. Note: I will soon be getting licensed in CO as well.

I am loving my Mobile Dental/Healthcare Rep position.  I have 10 nursing homes total signed on and will have another 30-40 by Feb 1, just under 5 months on the job.

Last, but not least, I have a solid plan in the works to increase my sources of income concurrent with providing a higher quality of life to the elderly.  Specifically,  I’ll soon be investing in a Mobile Dental Unit/Territory with the company I represent.

That covers it, at least for now.

Will keep you posted.

Meanwhile, feel free to reach out to me any ole time you like.

Best, Kay

First things first…  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Without a doubt, 2017 was the best year ever for me.  My most significant of accomplishments involved people connections, the vast improvement and expansion of relationships with my family, friends, associates and clients.

I honestly didn’t expect things to go this well for me, having been brain-washed into believing that anyone who resigned from the cult of scientology is a “degraded being”.

Surely, had that been true, I would have ended up a welfare case, friendless and jobless.  Taking into account my state of mind, health and finances that went from bad to worse during my 37 years of involvement, it could very well have turned out that way.

Fortunately, the result was the direct opposite and I lived to tell the tale!   Truth be told, I have never been happier nor more successful than I am today, at age 62.

I have big plans for 2018. Yes, more positive changes are coming my way.   I have worked very hard all these years and I deserve a high quality life as does every human being.

I’m a people person and my focus is on doing those things that will help many live the best possible life they can. So, in addition to expanding my Real Estate Business and my position in the Mobile Healthcare Industry,  I’ll be publishing another book, a compilation of biographies from people of all walks of life who have unleashed themselves from various and sundry forms of addictions.

I want to shine a beacon of hope for those less fortunate to let them know that despite their traumatic set-backs, they can rise and join the ranks of free-spirits, out-of-the-box thinkers and non-conformists!

P.S. If you haven’t read my book:  “Over the Edge- A Pawn in the Scientology Money Machine”- it is still available on Amazon in POD and Kindle Versions.
