Browse this page to read success stories from people who have benefited from the practices of Scientology and Dianetics. Scientology and Dianetics use "auditing", delivered one-on-one by a Scientology practitioner. Auditing provides a precise path to eliminate the aftereffects of life's painful experiences and restore happiness and ability. Auditor is defined as “one who listens,” from the Latin audire, meaning to hear or listen.

“I was really shy and extremely introverted”
“Although I had a pretty good life up to the point of doing Self Analysis, I didn’t actually feel that I was living a good life. I was really shy and extremely introverted. I used to get very embarrassed very easily and I had a hard time making friends. For someone in high school, these were very big problems for me.
“I was offered Self Analysis auditing to give me some relief, and I accepted. And I’m so glad I did!! I was so stuck in times in my life of loss and pain that I didn’t realize I had way more happy moments in my life than sad ones. And when I was able to shift my attention toward these happy moments, no matter how small (like driving fast to school or finishing my 7th grade science project or remembering the smell of my campsite in the early morning), my whole perception of my life changed too.
“In Self Analysis auditing you are directed to remember many moments and things of your past. At first I didn’t fully understand what was happening during the auditing or how it was supposed to help me, but as time went on I had more and more relief and realizations about myself.
“I remember floundering to find the right answers in my memories when I first started Self Analysis. Then I was able to find them faster and with more confidence. Then I was smiling with every response, until I was laughing with every response, until my realization hit me like a ton of bricks!!: ‘I have an amazing life!!!’
“And truly, I did have a good life. And I know that because I have all these happy moments that just became so much more real by focusing on different perceptions in them. This totally shifted how I was able to experience life going forward. I smiled more. I became more confident. And I became more aware of happy moments as they were happening. Life had turned into something to celebrate!!”
“My auditing addressed many personal fears and anxieties that blunted my quality of living on a daily basis.”
“My auditing addressed many personal fears and anxieties that blunted my quality of living on a daily basis. I think a lot of people would agree and say that they have anxieties they cope with internally whether it be a fear of riding elevators, being on a plane, or a fear of death. And it’s fine to live with some anxiety, it’s part of life, but not be covered by a blanket of terror that keeps you disconnected from the world.
“I wanted to be brave and energetic like how I was when I was little. Auditing handled that for me. I’m the best me now, thanks to the help I’ve gotten from Scientology.”

“Self Analysis auditing has given me back so much self-confidence and happiness”

“I finally understood why I had negative thoughts, self-doubts and fears.”

“I was able to spot toxic people that I had been involved with in my life. This allowed me to untangle myself from the negative influences they had left on me. This really made a huge difference to me!
“I had so many more realizations and changes. I used to have some nervousness meeting new people. Now, I am interested in people. That’s a HUGE change for me! I didn’t t even realize how much of a problem it was. It made sense why I was feeling lonely, as if I had no friends. I am much happier with that aspect of myself and my life. Overall, doing this program allowed me to feel much more at ease socially.
“One striking change that happened is I felt my creativity and imagination improved. I felt like I could use my creative mind once again and do art, interior design or sculpture on a completely new plateau. Up to that point I had pretty much given up on doing art all together!
“By the end of the program, I felt more alive and ‘fresh’, as if I had a new outlook on life. I would recommend anyone to do the Self Analysis program, get started right away and just keep going!”
