Time For Me… To Re-connect To The Love Within

by Sue Goodson, UK

Since attending my first Universal Medicine retreat in the UK in May I have been inspired to go for a daily walk first thing in the morning, whatever the weather. It is a time I enjoy to be with myself, in the fresh morning air, feeling the opportunities a new day brings… to start afresh.

I enjoy walking ‘with my heart’, feeling how my body is. I enjoy the journey of coming back to the true me, and taking the time to reconnect to my heart. It’s just one of a few healthy changes I have made, including eating more healthy foods, and going to bed earlier, which I have done gradually and from the feeling that my body appreciates those changes. It feels more self-loving, whereas before I would often disregard how I was feeling. Now I am learning to tune into those feelings more, as it feels right.

I have been attending the amazing healing courses and presentations at Universal Medicine for the three years since 2009. Since then, I have slowly discovered that I have within me everything I need to live harmoniously. It is just a simple matter of reconnecting to the love within. It was often easier said than done, only because initially I resisted this simple truth and didn’t want to face myself, warts and all!

In my earlier years I worked as a professional dancer, and also taught ballet/jazz dance/aerobics to children and adults. I lived in many different countries – Europe, USA, South America, the Middle East and Far East, travelling with work, and later on with my husband’s work. I never felt that I truly belonged anywhere. The dance work was very hard on my body, and it was easy to get injuries. I craved recognition and acceptance – that really was the nature of the work. It was about glamour, and how you looked on the outside. Now I know that the answers are not found on the outside, but only by connecting to myself from within.

We returned to the UK in 1995 so we could put down some roots for us, a family of four. I decided to retrain and practise aromatherapy massage. I worked in a complementary health clinic in Ascot, later in Richmond and central London. I also attended many complementary health courses – always searching for that elusive better health for myself and my clients. My health wasn’t that great, and usually with some symptom or another presenting itself I never felt truly well. I constantly looked outside of myself for answers to my confidence issues and often suffered with anxiousness, stomach problems and cystitis. I was really searching for the answer to my health issues, but trying to help others at the same time. I knew I had to get myself right before really being able to help others, but nothing gave me the full picture.

Through a good friend I eventually found myself at my first Universal Medicine course, Heart Chakra 1. At that first presentation I felt very welcome and very inspired by Serge Benhayon and the teachings. I learnt a simple breathing meditation called the Gentle Breath, which really helped me to reconnect to myself. I was introduced to many other tools to help me live harmoniously; one being the lovely eye pillows for self healing. I continued to attend more healing courses and presentations, and after each one could feel in my body how different I felt. It was an amazing feeling, one I had never felt before in the same way. It is great also to have some practical inspiration for living a healthy life with exercise, diet, sleep etc. (simple things that anyone can do.) It’s not rocket science nor a set of “do’s and don’ts” – they just make total sense. Of course I can often feel the resistance in me to this level of self-love, but it is a work in progress, and one I intend to follow, as I haven’t felt this level of vitality, or of being so centred, before.

I am very thankful to Serge Benhayon and his team for all the love and support they have given and continue to give.

Here are a few things I have learnt along the way that I am working with:

  • Don’t beat myself up, focus on the positive.
  • Feel, don’t think, that way I honour myself. Let myself feel what is in my body and not override it. Trust it.
  • Don’t give my power away, there is a choice… but at the same time, don’t hold back.
  • Be present (conscious presence); check back in with myself by closing my eyes.
  • Just Be.
  • Be gentle, walk gently.
  • It’s not what I do, but the way I am (energetic quality).
  • Don’t compare myself with others, breathe my own breath.
  • Give myself more time, don’t rush, and build a momentum of gentleness.
  • Don’t try and impose my views on others!
  • Self expression is everything.
  • Time for me… to reconnect to my inner heart (the love within).

  1. It’s not what I do, but the way I am (energetic quality). Very true, for the way I am with myself is the way I will be with every-one; the more loving and caring I am with myself, this is the way I will be with others.

  2. Don’t beat yourself up, don’t compare yourself to others, express your truth and look after yourself – this all sounds like perfect common sense and great life advice to me. The principles that we choose to live our life by defines our whole life.

  3. Thanks Sue, we have all learned so much from Universal Medicine presentations, the most powerful being that all we need is within and coming from our own body and inner heart.

  4. Your little list of things you have taken from your experience with Universal Medicine was very endearing. I also really enjoyed hearing about your morning walk, so much so that I am planning one myself in the morning. I cant wait to feel that crisp air like you described.

  5. I love the title of your blog Sue an what unfolds from there, it holds so much love and care for yourself and everybody else.

  6. The most marvelous thing that comes from loving ones self and nurturing ones body, is the warmth that rises from within, that cannot, but be shared with another.

  7. Sue it is a big shift from doing things for how they look on the outside compared to doing things according to how you feel on the inside. When I made this change, my life changed. It has become less about pleasing people and keeping up with the Jones’ and more about honouring myself. I am finding that this is a wonderful way to live.

  8. It is difficult to realise the level of abuse we can inflict upon our bodies doing so many of the seemingly ‘normal’ activities in life, sport, dancing, extreme exercise… until we stop and feel our bodies… or until our bodies make us stop. Once we reset a marker of gentleness it becomes very apparent what is hurting us, and what makes us truly become alive.

  9. Amazing blog Sue, it is one of those that you keep coming back too. It confirms how close we are all the time to just ‘tune in’ to our bodies at any given moment and connect to something so magical. Our bodies act like a barometer of truth – how we truly live life. How the simplicity of going for a walk is often the antidote to ease our bodies back into its gentle rhythm once more. As you share your appreciation Sue, Serge Benhayon/Universal Medicine has presented in abundance how to “reconnect to the love within” and your list is spot on with how we can all be inspired from this awesome example. Thank you.

  10. You have covered it beautifully Sue – even if we were to take on board one thing from your list our lives would transform. Imagine if we mastered all of them, what our lives could be together?

  11. Love what you have shared Sue thank you, so simple and so true the steps you outlined of coming back to feel the love you are are , just plain common sense, but oh so powerful to change our lives into living and being the love that we are.

  12. People do many things in the name of their well-being, but to what extent do they add to it? The subject of heathy foods come to mind. This is an area plagued with images of what is healthy that is not truly so (e.g., whole grains foods).

  13. One area for me to choose to deepen my conscious presence is not choosing multi tasking. This is an insidious activity, one that I’m realising comes with the hallmarks of addiction. If these seem like strong words they are because of the extent this systemic virus can take hold of ones mind and potentially lead to dementia.

  14. It’s quite surprising how taking basic care of ourselves can have such a huge effect on our health and well being and how we feel about ourselves and others. Not rocket science as you say Sue, but a practical wisdom we so often avoid when we’re so busy concentrating on trying to make true the pictures of how we think life should be.

  15. What is so very profound in this article is that it is about the way we live and not what we do as we live. As those who choose this responsibility carry it for all others to see, feel and one day choose for themselves.

  16. ‘It’s not what I do, but the way I am (energetic quality).’ Spot on Sue, too often we get caught in the ‘doing’ and ‘busyness’ of life and forget about the importance of bringing quality in everything we do.

  17. Its inspiring to hear you speak of the freshness and newness of a morning walk. Incredible how something so simple can change your entire life.
