It’s all about Living Naturally

by Annelies

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.

  1. Inspiration has no push or sell, it does not understate nor does it demand anything of any other. When we are naturally inspired by someone it is pure and we are allowed the space to make the same choices for ourselves, or not.

  2. I have only just come across your blog, Annelies. I found it truly inspiring. I can so relate to the ‘mental, frustrated, anxious’ woman, and I also did course after course to ‘improve’ myself or to find what I knew was missing. The first time I was shown the Gentle Breath Meditation (also by Chris James) I connected straight to my heart -something I had not experienced despite all the ‘yoga’ meditations I had done before. After that, i also resisted the work of Universal Medicine for awhile, but eventually i found my way home to the truth, and now I have the honour of sharing the Gentle Breath Meditation with others in my work.
    I loved what you shared about your husband never imposing on you -he simply gave you the space to feel what was true for you. How I wish i had done that with the people closest to me! This gave me an opportunity though to learn new skills -I am forever learning…

    1. Thanks Anne for your sharing and I can say although my husband had given me all the space to feel what was true for me, I can say I have been more of a ‘preacher’ in the beginning, I had to learn to let go of my control and just share my livingness without any attachment to outcome.

  3. Living a life that feels true to us is the greatest gift and freedom we can give ourselves. It feels expansive and spacious and very open. Living any other way, like doing things to constantly try to please others or gain their approval etc, is draining and serves neither them nor us, nor anyone else.

  4. The mentality of wanting and needing to fit in and be liked by everyone so we suppress and hold back our own natural expression is a debilitating way to live.

  5. How can we evolve if we are not inspired by another who we know in every cell in our body is living truth and love? Through inspiration we can also make the necessary changes to be that inspiration too.

  6. If to live in connection to our body and being is absolutely natural and as you have shard Annelise, is a way of being that is founded on and led by our love and truth within, where the realness of who we are can come to life, which becomes the basis of all our relationships.

  7. By reflection, we are teacher to each other. Choices we each make affect everyone around us. From your sharing, I got to understand how it supports us to be responsible when a teaching is shared with no imposition or coercion but simply by reflection and whatever we decide to do from that point onwards clearly is our own choices.

  8. Beautifully inspiring Annelies, we can learn so much from one another, especially when we notice the changes in people we know well, and are able to see the difference it makes to them, because we realise that we too can make similar changes.

  9. There is nothing better than finally realising you don’t have to live in tension of the world. The freedom in that alone is worth everything. Realising that you don’t have to absorb people’s emotions has changed my life. I used to want to understand how people felt and I did it by literally taking on all their stuff and ‘putting myself in their shoes’ almost literally. It’s no wonder I was exhausted and a bit of an emotional mess.

  10. ‘Universal Medicine is all about a commitment to a way of life, living naturally from our inner heart.’ Simple. Universal Medicine just presents what is possible for us to live. It’s our choice to commit with ourselves and make it possible.

  11. “In the process of becoming more self loving, we become more aware of what our bodies were telling us.” Well said Annelies, the choice in being willing to be more loving and caring opens up our awareness to allow ourselves the space to feel and sense from our body what feels true and what does not.
