Hmm, very inneresting!
Laura Prepon‘s certainly found her happy place — and apparently it’s all thanks to Scientology.
On Tuesday, the Orange is the New Black actress revealed that her relaxed demeanor comes from her work in the controversial religion.
The starlet spoke with the religion’s magazine and talked about her journey in Scientology.
“When I first got into Scientology, I did Personal Values and Integrity and then Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life. These courses touched on the observations I was aware of when I was younger. It was right there in black and white. It was amazing, and I felt that finally something was speaking my language. It totally connected with me. Pretty soon after that I got onto the Purification Rundown, and I started moving up the Bridge.”
In case you forgot, Scientologist believe that through a therapeutic process called “auditing” followers are able release a “thetan” or spirit from the body.
Sounds very — zen?!
“The auditing has stripped away all of this charge, false ideas, decisions, and mis-emotions that were affecting me. I recently had one of my biggest cognitions in a New Era Dianetics session. I spotted this decision I made a long time ago that was affecting me to this day. It was a huge realization├óΓé¼┬ªWhen you really cognate that you are a thetan and you have a mind and body, and that the MEST universe does not control you – it puts things into perspective. It takes the weight off you and things become very easy.”
Though we might not fully understand it — we’re glad the That ’70s Show star is happy.
However, the faith has been under much scrutiny after the highly talked about HBO‘s documentary Going Clear highlighted the abuses and strange practices within the organization.
Nonetheless the 35-year-old, who joined Scientology in 1999, credits the faith for helping control her emotions and assisting in her career.
“Things don’t bother me that had before. I remember I was doing a show with an amazing actor, and we were waiting to hear the fate of our show. He turned to me one day and asked, ‘How are you always so relaxed? Nothing seems to bother you. I want to know what you are doing…’ I take that as such a compliment and testament to the auditing I have done.”
We’re not sure if we’re 100% on board — but hey if it works for you who are we to judge?
