Why are there so many Celebrity Scientologists?
I think the most essential thing for an artist, in order to develop and mature, is to get information that he or she can use in terms of communication skills and in terms of affinity and reality with people. The Tone Scale is invaluable wisdom for any artist. I think Scientology is essential. It’s been the most practical tool for me to have. I love being a Scientologist. I’m proud to have parents and grandparents who are Scientologists. I love being an individual and expressing myself and Scientology has enabled me to do that.

Scientology makes people free, sane and able. It makes it possible to be more oneself, with the ability to create and change anything being a natural and expected phenomenon. It puts you at cause over your life and makes it easy for you to take responsibility not only for your own life, but for the world.
Scientology is sanity and if people who aren’t in Scientology knew just how sane their lives could be, they would run to find out about it.
I have always been a fairly happy person. From the time I was a boy I knew the difference between right and wrong. What I didn’t understand was why others did not. I’ve seen so many people, some very close to me, do things so obviously contrary to life and happiness. When I began to study Scientology, these “unknowable“ things suddenly became very simple to understand.
I now have a very broad understanding of people and of life. With that, I help people every day, help them answer questions for themselves.
People see that things are going well for me and usually want to know why I don’t have the same problems others do. My answer is always the same, “Scientology.”
In other philosophies, my questions would get answered to some degree, but then I would have a follow-up question and there would be no answer. The logic would dead-end. In Scientology you can find answers for anything you could ever think to ask. These are not pushed off on you as, “This is the answer, you have to believe in it.” In Scientology you discover for yourself what is true for you.
No one is telling you. You gain your own knowledge of what is true for you. And so your ability to communicate, your ability to be certain about yourself and to know what your purposes, intentions and goals are, become much stronger. Scientology is about regaining total cause over your own life.
The single greatest thing that studying Scientology has done for me is that it’s helped me become freer. Freer to create life as I want to, without being thrown off from my objectives. One of the first simple successes was that I learned to handle and remove my own self-imposed barriers and restraints. Through further study, my ability to handle life around me also increased. This freedom has been hard won, but the rewards are great.
My study of Scientology has also enabled me to write more music. I have become quicker and am able to use all of the musical abilities that I already have. I gained a new understanding of what the proper importances are in the process of creating music.
Scientology has helped me to live better. Using the basic principles of Scientology has become a natural way of life for me. From Scientology I’ve gotten a freedom to learn whatever I want to learn in life and I’m gaining new abilities all the time.

I am no longer stuck in the bottomless pit of despair and apathy. Having achieved the state of Clear is the single most important thing that I’ve done for myself. It has allowed me to experience life in a way I only imagined.
Lisa Marie Presley
L. Ron Hubbard researched man and has carefully and precisely mapped a route out of the madness, misery and unwanted conditions one can encounter in life. When applied exactly, the technology produces incredible results. Those results are very definite and eternal.
Were it not for Scientology, I would either be completely insane or dead by now. I am forever grateful for the technology of Scientology and to Mr. Hubbard who dedicated his life to helping man and this planet, as well as to the people who have dedicated their lives to helping others through Scientology.
Lisa Marie Presley
To tell you the honest-to-God truth: without Scientology, I would be dead. So, I can personally highly recommend it.
Scientology is the gateway to eternity. It is the path to happiness and total spiritual freedom. Until one has experienced the technology of Scientology it’s unlikely that one will ever experience these wonderful discoveries. I know because it has worked for me. The more time and effort I invest, the more I receive. I highly recommend it.
Musician & Actor
In January of 1975 I was working on my first film in Durango, Mexico. There I met an actress who gave me the book Dianetics. During the five weeks we were filming she gave me some auditing sessions and applied some basic principles. That was when I became involved in Dianetics â€“ because it worked.
When I returned to the United States I began Scientology training and auditing. My career immediately took off and I landed a leading role on the TV show “Welcome Back Kotter” and had a string of successful films. I have been a successful actor for more than twenty years and Scientology has played a major role in that success.
I have a wonderful child and a great marriage because I apply L. Ron Hubbard’s technology to this area of my life.
As a Scientologist, I have the technology to handle life’s problems and I have used this to help others in life as well.
I would say that Scientology put me into the big time.
The main thing that has really impressed me about Scientology is that there is the most brilliant tech for anything and everything in your life. I’ve become a more powerful individual with increased abilities. I never even conceived that I could experience these kinds of gains prior to Scientology.
There is a way to handle every part of life with Scientology, and a way to exist that is far beyond any dream that you could ever dream. All of my dreams keep becoming realities and that’s very exciting!
Through Scientology, things happen a lot quicker. What used to take weeks or months sometimes happens in days or even minutes!
Life is at my fingertips and with Scientology I’ve found I can have or be whatever I want.
I started in Scientology in 1977 and soon realized the data contained in Scientology would make a huge difference in my life. All the courses and auditing have been extraordinarily enlightening and valuable. My wife and I use Scientology to create a wonderful marriage. In fact, I’m sure there’s not a day that I don’t apply what I’ve learned in Scientology dozens (and probably hundreds) of times in a variety of ways.
Scientology is such a key part of my life today that it really constitutes an approach to living that is optimum for me as an individual, as a member of a family, as a member of the groups I belong to, and as a citizen of the world.
Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard was a great man. We should all be thankful for the insights and knowledge he made available for all people.
TV Producer & Director
For many years I was looking for a spiritual path and answers. After studying many other methods and philosophies I found Dianetics and Scientology. It was different than other things I had studied because it didn’t make some other part of existence responsible for the state of one’s life. In the works of L. Ron Hubbard, you find that you are responsible for and the total cause of your own life. In other words you are the one who has it in your hands to make the decisions that determine what direction your life will go. With Dianetics I have come to believe in myself and in the strength of my own decisions.
I would like people to know that this technology is simple. Anyone can apply it in life and see the changes. It works in any part of life where it is used.
Singer, Actress & Composer
There is a certain aspect of Scientology that helped me stay on my own path in creating life as a new game.
It is important to be able to handle the different considerations and viewpoints of those around you about your career and your life — about your dreams. These things become the subject of other people’s opinions and intentions, both good and bad.
Scientology has given me certainty of myself. I have the ability to comfortably communicate with anyone in any situation and be certain of my own goals.
I sought out other solutions, I tried other philosophies and never found one that really indicated the truth to me. Scientology presented precepts to me that really made me feel like I had found, at last, the guidelines that I had been searching for.
Before Scientology I had one dream of making a living, doing voice-overs for animation. After I became a Scientologist my abilities expanded so far and above what I originally dreamed for myself that I’ve amazed even myself at my enormous increase of abilities.
I’ve won an Emmy, a platinum and a gold album. I’ve written and starred in a one–woman show and I have a bright future as a producer.
I’ve got two beautiful children, an incredibly supportive husband, a staff working with me for the same future dreams and goals, and all of this is because I became a Scientologist.
Actress, Writer & Producer
I have been acting since age 4. I have always been working and I have always been in Scientology my entire life. (I was born into it.) Each service in Scientology is something I have added to my tool box of data for living.
The Purification Rundown lifted a cloud off my head and enabled me to think and see clearly.
Before I finished another level of Scientology auditing, I had a very hard time with being wrong and I always had to have my own way – and not in a good sense. After auditing, I was able to have my thoughts, communicate them and not have to be right all the time.
Then the Life Orientation Course defined even more clearly what I needed to do to stay on target with my goals and not waver into other things.
I have to say that one of the most important things Scientology has given me is the ability to keep my integrity together. I understand how people can get into unethical situations, and Scientology has always helped me keep my head clear and be in present time. I have been able to see situations for what they are.
Scientology has been my road out. There is nothing about my life that I feel apathetic or unhappy about. Scientology gives you hope and the certainty that you can improve any condition. This, to me, is priceless.
The wins that I’ve had with Scientology coincide directly with the rise in my career. It’s hard to pick out any one specific piece of tech, suffice it to say that I as an artist was surrounded with nonsurvival considerations, actions and valences – all of my own making. Through my use of Scientology technology I have eradicated most of these things and continue to eradicate them, giving me more freedom and intention to create into the future. And, by the by, a great deal more altitude, a more inclusive point from which to view life – past, present and future.
I wish to acknowledge Ron’s brilliant work, benevolence and stick-to-it-ness. He never gave up and I am thankful and happy to be a recipient of that knowledge.
I live life and I have a great time. If something starts to get me down, I have the tools in Scientology to handle it. These are actual tools to handle life and make it better.
Scientology is simple. The better you know something the more capable you become. And when that something is yourself, things get better and the quality of life improves. Scientology has helped me realize the full range of my potential and ability as an artist and a person. I am more productive and better able to handle responsibility. At the same time I feel a greater sense of freedom and appreciation of life. I am a happier person in my marriage, my career and my associations with others.
Scientology saved my life. I have always won at life, but never to my full potential. Since I’ve been in Scientology, I have a whole new career and I have a new life. And best of all, I have the knowledge to make it happen.
Before Scientology I succeeded a lot, but I also bombed out a lot. When I found Scientology I was not working much and I was personally very unhappy in life. I did not have the knowledge or the tech to get out of that condition or even that I was in a condition to get out of. Now I have the knowledge to create for myself the life I want.
Karen Nelson Bell
Ever hear the advice “Just be yourself”? What if you don’t know who that is? With the tools in Scientology, I finally answered that question for myself and I can promise you that I really do know exactly WHO I AM and what that means. Then there’s the maxim “You’re your own worst enemy.” What if you don’t want to be, but can’t figure out how to accomplish that? Scientology showed me why that happens and how to replace the negative with ease. And what I love the most is that no one told me what to think or what to do, they just gave me the tools to answer the questions for myself.
Karen Nelson Bell
An aspect of Dianetics I really like is the auditing itself. It’s amazing to feel light and feel the burden lifted. My hearing and my eyesight improved. I remember seeing a map on the wall in a room I was being audited in, and one day I looked at this map and saw every little letter clearly. I used to have to take a magnifying glass and look at those letters.
I would take more than a few words to tell how much Scientology has helped me during the past twenty-seven years. Life continues to improve to the extent that I continue using Scientology techniques. By now, I’ve achieved most of the life goals I’ve set at various points over the years and continue to reach for bigger ones. In recent years, after becoming a more highly trained counselor, I have been able to help others rid themselves of unwanted emotional burdens. This, in addition to being able to bring better art to people, is one of the greatest pleasures in life.
Composer & Arranger
My life is infinitely better since my first introduction to Scientology. Before Scientology, I was on an emotional “roller coaster.” Anytime I’d win at something or gain a moment of happiness, if it was on a Tuesday, you could predict that by Wednesday I’d be down in the dumps again. This “up and down and up and down” was such a point of upset and hopelessness for me that I finally resigned myself to the fact that this was something I was going to have to live with for the rest of my life.
In 1988, as a result of Scientology auditing, this phenomenon ceased for all time. I was shocked. I couldn’t believe it. I was no longer on the “helpless” receiving end of life. I am resilient, strong, more self-assured and most importantly, more able to handle what I encounter.
Physical aches and pains I’d associated with writing my songs have vanished. On stage, I feel much more creative and I am enjoying myself more up there.
My awareness of, interest in and love for other people has risen markedly and the more I study Scientology, the more I feel like I’m coming out of a long, deep sleep. What a relief!

In my career Scientology is the thing that has made it possible to be in show biz for more than 25 years. I love the people, I love the work. Scientology has helped me to handle the everyday problems of life, handle confusions and keep my goals focused. It has made my life fulfilling as an actor, father and American citizen and has made it possible for me to fulfill my own American Dream. Being a Scientologist has clarified knowing what freedom really is.
