I was put in Cult at seven after my Mum died.

Harrowing story of Shelly who was put into cult aged seven after her Mum died.

Nearby is Saint Hill Manor, which is the home of Scientology in the UK, and the former home of the religion’s founder, science fiction writer L Ron Hubbard.

 She said: “Even though I was so young I knew as soon as I arrived this wasn’t a normal place. The first thing I had to do was to sign a billion-year contract.

“It states that every time you die you will reincarnate and rejoin the Scientologists. I was only seven — I had no idea what it meant.

“I became part of the Cadet Org, the child section of Scientologists. I was put into a dormitory with seven other girls.

“My dad was in a totally different part of the mansion and I was only allowed to see him on a Saturday. I was a little girl who had just lost her mum but I was never given cuddles or kisses.

“There wasn’t a caring atmosphere. You don’t get hugs like little children normally do. Parents aren’t encouraged to spend time with their children.”

Shelley added: “We weren’t allowed television, comics, music or anything that a normal child has.
“We were never taken to a park to play, or to the cinema or anything like that. If we went off the grounds we had to be chaperoned. Books were chosen for us and were normally about Scientology.

“We had to wear uniform all the time, even at weekends. It was a navy blue polo, navy blue trousers and dark trainers.

“We had school from 9am to 3pm. The subjects were the same as normal school except there was no RE or sex education. Our teachers didn’t seem properly trained and we didn’t take GCSEs. We had to take different courses, like ones in maths, and after we had finished we had to go in front of the class and take the E-meter test.

“This means holding a sort of can in each hand while the teacher takes an electronic reading. If we didn’t pass, we had to do the whole course again. They call it auditing and you are constantly audited throughout your time with Scientology to make sure you are following their ways.

“There was never any playtime during breaks. Mostly you spent your time in silence — there was never any laughing or playing, like at a normal school.”

After school, the children had to do volunteer work in the grounds.
Shelley said: “It was called chores but I would say it bordered on child labour.

Shelly's Dad is a member of the Jive Aces who I have written about before, I met him in Hastings when he was playing in the town center doing a stint for the "say no to drugs" campaign for Narconon UK. Narconon is based in Pevensey Road, St. Leonards on sea.

Earlier this year the Jive Aces were on ITVs Britain's got Talent:

They gave an upbeat rendition of  'The Bare Necessities of Life' from Jungle Book, it's a shame those bare necessities didn't extend to one of the members own children.Shelly's story is only far too common in Scientology, where members are so devoted to the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard they loose all common sense and love of their own children in a bizarre belief system that "children are adults in little bodies", that they have lived before this life many times and are therefore capable of looking after themselves from a very young age.

Hubbard's Tone Scale:

Note: There is NO love on the tone scale.And, that is the life of a scientology child,totally devoid of love.

More about the Jive Aces:

Katie Holmes is trying to get sole custody of Suri, I for one hope she does.We don't want to see any more children damaged by the bizarre and soul destroying teachings of a dead science fiction writer.
