Do Drugs and Toxins Lock-up Creativity?
By Lori Alpers
Being a female rocker in a male-dominated business can be a rough ride to say the least. The male foothold is strong and pervasive. The stress factor for a woman in the business is far more significant. A woman needs an edge. Something to fortify her and help her stay on top.
Scientology technology can give you that edge. Scientology, founded by American humanitarian and author, L. Ron Hubbard, is an applied religious philosophy with workable answers to the problems people face in their lives. Unlike other efforts of improvement, offering only rules (and who needs more rules!?) by which people should live, Scientology offers real tools for use in all areas of life, including your career.
In fact, there are special Scientology organizations devoted specifically to helping artists. L. Ron Hubbard once wrote, A culture is as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists. Female artists supply the spark of creativity and the vision of tomorrow. Artists have made great strides in raising public awareness of important issues and causing positive change. They wield an enormous influence on society.
To forward their dreams and help artists L. Ron Hubbard established Celebrity Centres. These special Church of Scientology centers deliver services to artists in many cities around the world providing a safe haven and regeneration for the artist. The focus is on helping the artist improve mental and spiritual well-being and increase creativity so they have the edge needed to survive in todays world.
One of the most popular services, which has helped many artists free their creative power is called the Purification Rundown. The effects of drugs and toxins dim your creative abilities and your life in general. They take away the energy of life you need to desperately to survive. This includes all types of drugs and toxins. Research has shown the chemical poisons, preservatives and pesticides as well as medical drugs and the long list of heavy street drugs can lodge in the tissues and remain in the body for years.
We live in a chemical-oriented society. The Environmental Protection Agency reports that the average American consumes four pounds of pesticides each year and has residues from over 400 toxic substances in his body. More than 3,000 chemical additives are found in the food we eat.
There is no escaping our contaminated environment and, furthermore it has been found that these substances can play havoc with your imagination. Your imagination is key to success and innovation in this highly competitive line of work. A line of work in which the cards are already stacked against you.
The Purification Rundown is an effective method to cleanse the body of these substances. This procedure will greatly benefit any artist. The program is delivered on a supervised basis at Celebrity Centres and consists of exercise, sauna sweat-out, nutrition including vitamins and minerals and a properly ordered personal schedule. Following is a basic explanation of the parts of the program and how it works.
EXERCISE. The exercise on this program is in the form of running and is done to get the blood circulating and the system functioning so that the impurities held in the system can get released and pumped out.
SAUNA SWEAT-OUT. Following the running, the person goes into a sauna to sweat. The impurities can now be flushed from the body and leave the system through the pores.
NUTRITION. This includes vitamins, minerals and oil intake. There is no special diet required, the person simply eats what they would normally eat. Though, one should make sure they get some vegetables and that these arent overcooked.
Toxic substances tend to lock up mainly, but not exclusively, in the fat tissue of the body. The theory is that one could replace the fat tissues that hold the toxic accumulations. This is where the intake of oil comes in, to replace the bad fat in the body with the good oil. But, dont worry girls, the program doesnt effect your weight.
A PROPERLY ORDERED PERSONAL SCHEDULE. It is important that a person doing this program maintains a schedule and does not do the program randomly, skipping days, etc. If one proceeds through the program in an orderly fashion, it will be faster and more effective. The book, Clear Body, Clear Mind, (available in bookstores around the country) details the entire program and explains the discoveries that led to its development.
What have other rocker girls had to say about Scientology?
Australias top female vocalist, Kate Ceberano, once expressed how Scientology can benefit the artist, 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. I think Scientology is essential. Its been the most practical tool for me to have.
Singer Maxine Nightengale said, Scientology not only revitalized me as an artist, it revitalized me as a person. I had given up on singing and on life before Scientologyand this was after a long, successful singing career of 23 years. You have to realize how far gone I was. I didnt think there was any hope and all my dreams were gone. The difference in the quality of my life before and after Scientology is quite simply day and night. Every person deserves the change to feel the renewal of life, energy, power and hope.
