Universal Medicine is all about a commitment to a way of life, living naturally from our inner heart. To say I follow Serge Benhayon, NO WAY… I live the life that I feel is true to me. Are Serge Benhayon and his family, or indeed anyone who lives from their inner heart an inspiration? YES. And that is what the world needs – more people who are living in a way they feel is true, so that other people around them can see and feel that they are more naturally loving, joyful, vital and self empowered.
Six years ago my partner came home from a Chris James course he had attended, with a new breathing technique, saying, “you do not need anyone or anything outside your inner heart to tell you what is right for you, everything is there in your inner heart”. This was the Gentle Breath Meditation as inspired by Serge Benhayon.
At the time I totally resisted this. We were followers of a guru – yes, a real one – and I did not intend to let it go. You could say I was really nasty to my partner, accused him of being selfish etc.etc.
But he was just going on with his gentle breath meditations, and after a while the name Serge Benhayon was mentioned, the first book of Serge Benhayon appeared in the house and later on he started to listen to the audios from Universal Medicine.
In a few months I could feel and see changes in him: he was more open than ever, less irritated when he came home after a day’s work, more loving to himself and our family and definitely more vital than before.
After years of doing all kind of new age courses and workshops like Reiki, Yoga, training in intuition, Gestalt therapy, rebirthing, bodywork, etc, I never felt or saw a real change that had stayed in either myself or him.
Slowly, slowly I began to question him about what Serge was presenting. And he always just answered my question, no more no less. So I started to try the gentle breath meditation for myself, and after doing that for the first time ever in my life I had the experience of being able to stay connected with myself whilst around others.
I had always absorbed other people’s emotions, adjusting to the energy of others and suppressing my own feelings. Always trying to fit in, doing what people expected from me, trying to be liked.
This had made me a very mental, frustrated, anxious person. I was having migraines, feeling tired from pleasing others – that was my life.
So now I was the one reading the books, listening to the Universal Medicine audios, and our life together developed into choosing a life that was and is, simple and natural to us.
We felt to change the way we were eating and drinking, sleeping, working etc., just because, in the process of becoming more self loving, we became more aware of what our bodies were telling us. We were and are learning to trust our feelings, knowing that we have a choice in every split second of every day. (“The best medicine is how you live on a daily basis” – Serge Benhayon).
Why was I resisting in the first place? Living naturally in this way makes you responsible for everything you do, say and think, you cannot blame anyone. I had not made very loving choices in the past and this had an effect on everybody, to take responsibility for that… well let’s say this is not always easy… simple but not easy.
This was the start of a new way of living, individually and together, sharing this love from inside out with the people around us, our children, family, friends, colleagues etc. And this is an on-going process. (And I had not even met Serge Benhayon yet.)
After the first year we both started to visit the workshops and courses that Serge Benhayon presented in England. For the last three years our children have come with us. We take the opportunity to have sessions with the amazing practitioners from Australia to support our way of living as well. And of course to be inspired by the immense love that Serge is and lives. To be inspired by all the people who have made this same choice. To enjoy and celebrate who we truly are.
Thank God for Serge Benhayon and his (extended) family for their endless love for humanity.
