The fear was gone and trouble at work slowly began to change.

Living in Dunedin Florida I worked with a former scientologist. Through him I got interested in Dianetics. My wife and I were trying the concept.

My cousin died. The night after I visited the funeral home, I had a dream. I heard his wife call his name loudly in despair. I was on my feet and headed toward the direction of the voice when my wife stopped me. It was very real.
