Weekend June 19th & 20th live seminars on the self-help bestseller Dianetics: The Modern
Science of Mental Health were held throughout the country from New York to Los Angeles
providing some workable solutions for people looking to resolve marital difficulties.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2010 — Hubbard Dianetics Foundations across America held another
weekend of live seminars on self-help techniques and many have found relief in using Dianetics after trying
many different ways of salvaging and maintaining their marriage. An estimated 50% of US marriages end in
divorce and is being referred to a contagious epidemic – making its way through family generations, friends and
associates in the workplace.
Aside from the emotional effects, divorce is also costing taxpayers an estimated $30 billion each year in child
support enforcement and welfare benefits to dependent mothers to mention a few. The personal cost can
averaging $20,000 per split and can be upsetting and costly when many have found solutions to prevent
divorce.
Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health written by L. Ron Hubbard contains the anatomy and
description of the Reactive Mind, the previously unknown source of aberrations, which causes one to act
irrationally. A Dianetics chapter entitled, Contagion of Aberration sheds light on how one person’s unwanted
difficulties can become contagious within families, friends and society.
By addressing issues with techniques contained in the book, Dianetics Seminar attendees were able to get to the
root cause of their problems and providing a great deal of relief for the individual, “My marriage was headed
for divorce. And even though we loved each other, something had come between us and I didn’t know what it
was. We tried everything. We went to a marriage counselor, we even went to a psychiatrist and the end result
was we still were headed for a divorce.
“So just when I was about to file the final papers, a close friend of ours insisted, absolutely insisted, that we try
Dianetics. And that is when we knew what had come between us—it was the reactive mind. So not only did
Dianetics give us the tools to save and rebuild our marriage, but we love each other more today than the day we
got married,” as one marital partner experienced relief from Dianetics wrote.
Dianetics is available in 50 languages and has sold over 21 million copies since its release in 1950. More

Economic Crisis Sparks ‘Stress Induced Illness’

L. Ron Hubbard’s Bestselling Dianetics Gets to the Root Cause

 

Los Angeles, CA — 61 years after the release of the Best selling self-help book of all time, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health by L. Ron Hubbard continues to dominate as a self help book, alleviating and eradicating all manner of unwanted feelings including stress which is branded ‘America’s #1 Health Problem.’

 

With 75% of the general population suffering from stress at least once a fortnight, and with it leading to stomach knots, sore and tense muscles, feeling low and unhappy, triggering drug consumption as well as causing such complications as high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes and other illnesses, there is every good reason to pay attention to this problem.

 

Time magazine’s June 6th 1983 cover story was called “Stress The epidemic of the 80’s” and referred to it as our leading health problem, and 26 years on with the current economic crisis the situation has progressively worsened, and could now be described by many as the scourge of the 21st Century affecting people from every strata of life at work and at home.

 

Dianetics answers fundamental questions – what is the root cause of stress? And how can I handle stress? Dianetics Stress test have been conducted on the streets of major cities with volunteers and staff from Churches of Scientology offering free ‘Stress Tests.’ If you ever wondered what a stress test consists of, or how it works, the easiest way to find out is to get one for yourself. The test pinpoints the area of your life where you are experiencing the most stress — without you even saying a word — you also get the solution as contained in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.

 

Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard is the best-selling self-help book of all time, and presents the first workable science of the mind. The technology answers fundamental questions of living: “How can I handle stress, anxiety and unhappiness?” “Why do I do things I can’t explain?” “How can I repair relationships with others?” It even explains why some people recover from illness and accidents more easily than others.

 

Dianetics contains the discovery of the reactive mind and the answer to one’s worries, insecurities, pains, stresses and nightmares. By using the techniques in the book, you can find out what is controlling your life.  The book provides more than just a “mere explanation” of the things which ruin a person’s life. It provides simple techniques to handle the single source of one’s fears, anxieties and stresses.

Dianetics first hit the stands fifty-nine years ago in 1950, it has been on a total of no less than one-hundred-and-sixteen bestseller lists for a total of one-thousand-and-sixty two weeks and has stood the test of time as a seasoned best-seller, and is now available in 50 languages.

 

The author of the book, L. Ron Hubbard became one of the most prolific writers of the 20th Century with 19 New York Times Bestsellers, 230 million works sold across 150 countries of earth. The household name, Guinness World Records officially recognized Mr. Hubbard as of March 2009 stating “The most published works by one author is 1,084 by L. Ron Hubbard (USA),” and recently as of April 2009 another world record was declared, “Most audio books for one author is L. Ron Hubbard with 185 published audio books as of 21st April 2009.”

4th July weekend: Hubbard Dianetics Seminars were held across major cities of the United States: One man’s 30-year-battle against the ordeal of losing his only sister in a dreadful accident was finally ended by applying techniques taught at weekly seminars on L. Ron Hubbard’sDianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.
Every minute of every day, 100 people around the world die, whether from malnutrition, accidents, disease or plain old age. Each death leaves a mark on someone, and though the phrase “time heals” is thought to be an answer, L. Ron Hubbard in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, says that it only buries the hurt; and this hurt knocks the life out of people…that is, until Dianetics counseling brings them back to life. Due to the popularity, the seminars teaching the techniques are now a weekly occurrence at Hubbard Dianetics Foundations nationally.
Few people have not been touched by the loss of a loved one, and the sense of depression and hopelessness can be great. Such a person was Sean McLaughlin. One day, when he was ten, he lost his sister in a tragic and wasteful accident when she was pregnant with her first child. That was 30 years ago, and what had been a Brady Bunch life for Sean and the rest of his family, quickly spiraled out of control. For the next two years, Sean struggled not only with his own loss, but also his mother’s. Sean fell ill regularly, missed school, and turned to drugs to deaden the pain. From pot he went to pills and then acid; then there was rehab and methamphetamines.
When he reached 26, he went back and forth between prescription and street drugs. One day, living in a rundown area of downtown Long Beach, a zombie who felt no emotion when friends died, he stopped eating and drinking for nine days and, figuring he was going to die, called people to say his farewells. His girlfriend called the medics and while on I.V. support in the hospital, he made the decision to quit drugs, starting with the sleeping pills he was being offered by the nurses. Later, and while off drugs, Sean read Dianetics, The Modern Science of Mental Health and came across a passage where L. Ron Hubbard talked about how the life goes out of a person when he loses someone near and dear, and how this life force remains buried afterwards, influencing the individual without him even knowing it.“I read that and it hit me like a ton of bricks, recalls Sean. “I had all this life- energy trapped from losing my sister. Following the procedures of Dianetics counseling, I went back in my mind to the time when I first heard that my sister was dead, and moved forward through the following days that had been so painful, through the
time of the funeral. I went through it again and again, each time more of it coming back to me, until I was able to see and hear it all again, all the different emotions, the deep, deep sense of loss. There was so much information and upset trapped in that memory, and it had influenced me in many ways since then. I realized that my dislike of wearing smart clothes came from having to wear them to the funeral, and this had even influenced my profession: I chose one where I could wear what I wanted—hairdressing. I would miss weddings of friends for the same reason. And I had not been able to listen to anyone talking about death: I used to become really angry with them. That counseling session took just a couple of hours and not only did I feel a huge weight lift off my shoulders, but the counseling also vitally changed my life.
“Shortly after I visited my parents… They have pictures of my sister all over the house, and usually, when I go

there, I feel so drained of energy, so dead, that I go to sleep almost immediately. This time, I walked all around
the house looking at all the pictures and had no bad reaction whatsoever. Whenever I hear of someone dying, I
do not freak out, and I have not had problems with dressing smartly since either. After thirty years, I finally
have a little more of me back.”
