My Life Now – a Very Different Picture

by Irene Sheard

I have recently observed the false and shocking allegations made towards Serge Benhayon, his family and Universal Medicine in various press articles and also on television (including allegations that Universal Medicine is a cult) and would like to share my experience and appreciation of Serge and the Universal Medicine team.

I came to live in Goonellabah, N.S.W. three years ago and not long after heard an interview with Serge on the radio and I felt that what he was saying made so much sense. I then started to attend sessions with one of the practitioners at the Universal Medicine Clinic and also presentations by Serge Benhayon.

I have a history of anxiety, dysfunction, alcohol abuse and utter exhaustion, including being diagnosed with depression and chronic fatigue. Added into this mix came a state of poverty and many problems passed on to my children and grandchildren including drug abuse, self harm and alcohol and gambling addictions.

I had tried for many years to remedy some of this by pursuing various alternate modalities and it did seem that my life improved, at least on a functional level.

After attending Serge’s talks I started to realise that although things looked better on the outside, I was actually still feeling all the old feelings of low self worth and anxiety on the inside. I kept myself safe from feeling all this by cocooning myself from the world and living on Centrelink payments for many years and not participating in anything that I felt threatened by.

After attending Universal Medicine I started to live in a more gentle way with myself and also allowed those feelings to surface in a gentle way. Previously I had done a lot of psychotherapy but this mostly consisted of just re-living the pain of the past – I could still feel it in my body. I tried many diets and ways of eating but had only followed them because I read or heard that they were good. At the same time I would gorge on chocolates, icecreams and the like, trying to fill the empty hole I could feel inside.

Now two and a half years after attending Universal Medicine sessions and presentations my life is a very different picture. I have lost 16 kilos and feel very loving towards my body. I sleep very well and feel I have the energy to do whatever I need to during the day. I was constantly getting colds and hayfever but now am clear of these. I now have work in the community as an aged care worker and I am also studying in aged care. This has been my biggest change as I could not function in the workforce before. I now take the gentleness I have in my body to my work and am able to work a full, busy day and not feel tired at the end of it. This has led to my finances being more manageable and I am slowly getting out of debt.

Another big change has been in my relationships. I am now able to be with others and not become exhausted because I was trying so hard to please or to impress or just guard who I really was. The true friendships that I have are awesome – we are both coming from that place of self love – and it is the first time in my life that I can feel what is truly love. I am more loving as a mother and grandmother but only by being myself and not trying to rescue my family from their own choices.

Another change has been my attitude towards mainstream medicine. I was on my high horse about various issues such as vaccination, chemotherapy or anything in fact that doctors prescribed. It was a big awakening to feel the arrogance I had towards the medical profession and how I was avoiding taking responsibility. I now have an appreciation of what medicine has to offer. I have recently had blood tests and my first pap smear for 20 years.

In conclusion I would just like to say that I have never heard Serge tell anyone what to do or what to eat or drink. Serge just presents and shares the energetic truth and it is totally up to us to discern and feel into what is true for us. Serge has always stated that he is pro-medicine and that gave me an opportunity to consider why I was so opposed to it.  

Serge Benhayon is not a “cult leader” or a guru. He is another human being who lovingly shares the truth about humanity and where we are at and how we can make the choice to live in stillness and harmony and not accept all the pain and suffering as “normal”.

Thank you Serge.

  1. Thank you Irene for this most honest sharing of what seems to have been a very challenging life, up until you met Serge Benhayon that is. What you have shared is a most inspirational testimonial to this amazing but very humble man whose shared wisdom has supported many others to also make changes to their lives in many miraculous ways; changes that have always been their choice, with no pressure or expectations coming from Serge in any way at all, just unconditional love and unwavering support.

  2. Irene this is a truly extraordinary turnaround, well done for taking responsible and loving steps to heal your life and to experience what true love is, your choices will offer inspiration and support to many others who meet you.

  3. There are so many spiritual modalities and practices that manage symptoms and can actually make you feel like you’re on top of the world but there is no stillness in that and you will sooner or later go down and then you feel bad about yourself and might be ashamed but that is just the spiritual part of us or the spiritual way that doesn’t want to admit that there is more to life, that there is a grander version of us inside that can be connected to. I’ve been part of the spiritual world and of course there are beautiful people there as there are everywhere but there is also an arrogance that what I do is the best and when I was part of it I also felt that I knew the best and that the practice I was involved in was great and working, for if not I would have had to admit that it didn’t really work, as in it didn’t give me the joy that I knew I had innately and that I had as a child. Luckily my connection with my soul was stronger than my pride to stick with the old spiritual way and the first time I heard Serge Benhayon in an interview I knew straight away that what he was talking about was true. Only because I had connected to that same truth within myself first.

  4. Hello Irene and an old story in age but by no means an old story full stop. You are detailing the changes made and experienced by many many people from what Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon are doing. I don’t think you can even class it as radical as basically all that is happening are people taking a deeper level of care for themselves which then goes out to everyone else. So don’t tell anyone because we wouldn’t want more care in the world or better still run off with some story from a couple of people that don’t really care at all. I would take a look at how all these people have changed their life, what have they done and look at the amazing changes that have occurred as a result, like you Irene.

  5. Irene, your remarkable transformation experienced two and half years after meeting Serge Benhayon is testimony to the true quality of Serge and Universal Medicine. You are one of many many people whose lives have been transformed beyond all recognition.

  6. Its a small but significant comment – I used to suffer badly from hayfever (leading to asthma)… so much so that it would ruin the summer and a significant part of a decision to move to Australia. While I was out there I changed my life around – my eating, drinking, and the way I was living. Since my return nearly ten years ago I’ve not really suffered at all – the product of some different and much healthier choices.

  7. A beautiful example how learning to love and take good care of ourselves brings enormous changes. Inspired by a man who simply walks and talks the life he lives.

  8. When we are inspired to open up and choose a more gentle and loving way of living our whole life changes, in becoming more honest with ourselves we see how having an inner connection is key to truly knowing and valuing ourselves which affects our choices that either support our connection or keep us separated and living in disregard.

    1. It’s is no longer enough to say how much my life has change since meeting Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. Never has my life reflected so much balance and consistency in all areas. The way I am with people in and around every part of my life is nothing short of extraordinary. Not only do I enjoy every day and look forward to it but it’s nearly every moment. There are still moments I don’t enjoy but I know that it’s only a moment and dedicate to seeing what it is that has effected me. In the next moment the momentum of how things are normally kicks in and onto the next moment I go. It is all about how you live, how we live and the quality of that ‘how’ in each moment.

  9. I loved reading your experience Irene. It’s powerful to feel the complete 180 you have done in your life. A testament to you and to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.

  10. This blog is worth reading again and again. So much has miraculously changed and improved in all areas of your life Irene and in a short time. More than a blog here – a book and life story on what truly works to take to the world – “and it is the first time in my life that I can feel what is truly love.” Quite remarkable but why is it not normal?!

  11. Wow Irene, remarkable how you turned your life around. Serge Benhayon has inspired many to take the steps back to love and our willingness to walk those steps changes lives. Thank you for sharing.

  12. Irene you have really changed your life and that is very inspirational! You wrote: ” . . . we can make the choice to live in stillness and harmony and not accept all the pain and suffering as “normal.” That seems to be a very good choice to do – thank you for not holding back and being so honest and real.

  13. One of the biggest things I’ve learnt from Serge Benhayon, is that no matter how ugly life is withdrawing from the world doesn’t work, and it actually feels amazing to have both feet in and be in the thick of life, yet not get swept up in it and have the tools to remain real and true to who I am.

  14. One of the things I love about Universal Medicine is that it complements conventional medicine. In fact I feel they go hand in hand very well as Universal Medicine can help to get to the root cause and conventional medicine can support with the management of the condition. My stance on being pro-medicine has changed considerably since I met Serge Benhayon. I now would not hesitate to go and see the doctor for support whereas before attending Universal Medicine I would do all I could to avoid conventional medicine. The change has been incredibly supportive towards myself and my family and it is Serge Benhayon to whom I thank as it was Serge that I was inspired by to make the changes.

  15. This so beautiful lrene. What a miracle for you when Serge Benhayon came into your life and showed you another way to live. A truer way. This is available to all equally so. When we choose to love, our world changes because we naturally do from the inside out.

  16. ‘Serge has always stated that he is pro-medicine and that gave me an opportunity to consider why I was so opposed to it.’ This is a great statement and one that I know would resonate with almost anyone who has been in contact with Serge Benhayon. He gives you the space to consider another way, and it’s as simple as that.

  17. Thank you Irene for sharing the changes you have made having been inspired by the presentations of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. We all have free will to choose how we live and relate to ourselves, others and the world around us. The Way of The Livingness as presented and lived by Serge Benhayon is to live in harmony, truth, and love and it is just a choice available to all.

  18. The choice you have made to initiate great change in your life is very inspiring as detailed by your experience from not being able to work to working a full and busy day without getting tired. This is huge on many levels, and something for us all to appreciate and learn from.

  19. Accusing an organisation of being a cult is an easy thing to do. Yet, such an accusation does not mean at all that this is true. Unfortunately, though, this is the type of accusation that socially works and, hence, that produces what it intends to produce (fear, rejection, etc.).

  20. After many years of attempting and hoping that the next modality will full fill me, would often leave me feeling empty and alone.

    Since 2014 and meeting Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, my life has had a facelift from inside out and I’ve never looked back. Its still a working progress but hey Rome wasn’t built in a day so no regrets and yes indeed it is a miracle.
