My Daughter and Universal Medicine – A Mother’s Experience

By S.B, Nurse, Northern Rivers, Australia 

I first became aware of Universal Medicine through my daughter, in 2008. At that time, unbeknown to me, my daughter had been involved with Universal Medicine for some time. I began to notice various lifestyle changes she was making and was very curious about the reasons for these. Even though all the changes were decidedly for the better, I began to get very defensive about what she was doing. When it became known to me that she was involved with a ‘group’ of people, alarm bells began to ring.

I had in my past been involved with a group for 15 years, and although we started out with grand ideas of universal brother and sisterhood, in the end there was much misery generated by the experiment.

My daughter was using terms such as ‘honour your own loveliness’ and ‘all you have to do is come back to who you really are, which is love’. These terms sounded familiar to me, and I began to place them in the field of Eastern religion.

I had also had an academic and practical background of study in philosophy, theology and theosophy, so I was very ready to argue that joining a group was not the answer.

As my daughter was very adamant that she was very happy doing what she was doing, and as I could see the amazing change in her self-confidence, self-esteem and the gentle, lovely way she now lived, and since I could not convince her to change her mind, I decided that the only way to really do anything was to get first-hand information of the ‘group’ she was involved with.

I attended a talk with great caution and very ready to criticise.

What I found was a simple message. A message about taking responsibility for the way I live, my health and my well-being. About having awareness of how I affect others by my daily living, and so living in a way to create harmony for myself and others.

In all my studies, and from all the gurus/teachers I had listened to in the last 40 years, I had been reading and hearing about meditating into a peaceful state of being. I practised and practised but never seemed to be able to bring that knowledge into my daily living and actually be in peace in this turbulent world.

Listening to the talks from Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine I began to understand that indeed, I had not been connected to the love that is really me, and without that connection there was no question of being able to connect to that inner stillness so often talked about.

I found that Universal Medicine is not a ‘group’. There was no suggestion that I should hand over any money, or that I should believe in a dogma or doctrine. It does not expound nor denounce any religion. There is a non-judgemental foundation, and talks and healing are open to all to come and go as they wish.

I am now able to claim and honour my own loveliness. I now take responsibility for my own health by awareness of diet and exercise. I express love through attempting to make my every action gentle. I experience joy in the stillness I am now able to achieve.

I have found the ‘wisdom of the ages’ in action.

At last I have come back to myself, which is where I was always supposed to be.

This is home.

  1. I love the way you approached the teachings and how you call it ‘I have found the ‘wisdom of the ages’ in action.’ And it is so true it is not about reading a book or following the guru or whatever. but only about being a student in everyday life who puts into practice what is presented and then one can connect to the wisdom that is in everyone.

  2. ‘I found that Universal Medicine is not a ‘group’. There was no suggestion that I should hand over any money, or that I should believe in a dogma or doctrine. It does not expound nor denounce any religion. There is a non-judgemental foundation, and talks and healing are open to all to come and go as they wish’ I can completely understand the fears you might have had about your daughter especially as there is so much bad press out there casting all sorts of serious allegations about Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and anyone who supports it. Awesome that you chose to experience for yourself the truth of this excellent organisation and its founder.

  3. How do we live in our day to day and how hurt and scarred have we been by that way of living that we consider that living in more connection to the body and with a dedication to love is a concern that there may be an ulterior motive and because it is a group it could be part of a cult???! As humans we have a deep level of responsibility for abusing each other and manipulating each other for our own ends that results in this lack of trust. I have loved being part of the education Universal Medicine has offered me because it puts the responsibility firmly on my shoulders and is completely my free-will to live or not.

  4. We are often told the ways to be, but not the innate loveliness we are and without this as our foundational understanding we adopt things to better ourselves and in doing so we impose more on ourselves and our bodies. Universal Medicine brings you back to the simplicity of knowing there is a love in us all, and it’s for us to connect to and live from that love.

  5. It is great you were discerning and had your daughter’s true well-being at the heart of this discernment and at the same time were willing to see the positive changes she had made in her life and not deny or belittle this. I have known and gone to Universal Medicine courses and presentations for over 12 years now, but what I appreciate reading your blog, is seeing more clearly that currently there is nothing else in the world that offers truth, true healing and genuine care so openly, transparently with no need or want or agenda to humanity than what Universal Medicine are offering and have offered for nearly 2 decades now.

  6. Universal Medicine truly supports all to re-connect back with their inner-wisdom and to unfold that back into how we live our life in every way. So no doctrine or dogma, as you describe, just truly simple supportive lifestyle medicine for all.

  7. SB it was lovely to read how in the end you answered the call from your soul and went along to discover for yourself what Universal Medicine was all about and in doing so you came back home to yourself. A wise move worth deeply appreciating.

  8. It is very interesting to read how you found it hard to accept your daughter’s choices even though you could clearly see that she had changed for the better, and that your scepticism came from you having been previously exposed to something that sounded familiar and good but turned out not true. It is those sneaky lies that present themselves as good that does more damage.

  9. Through this gorgeous testimonial you highlight so beautifully how an openness to seek truth is what dispels the walls of protection we assembled from our hurts, where we realise that we are so much more that our hurts or protection, and the love we are within is what truly guides us to know ourselves and all of us.

  10. I love how your sceptical curiosity led you to such a wonderful place with yourself and no doubt your relationship with your daughter is ten fold better.

  11. How lovely that you checked out the group your daughter was spending time with, and how you found the message to be so simple; ‘A message about taking responsibility for the way I live, my health and my well-being. About having awareness of how I affect others by my daily living, and so living in a way to create harmony for myself and others.’ Extremely simple, yet very powerful when we live from the love that we are first.

    1. Yes and pretty cool that rather than criticise from the outside she decided to understand it first. There is so much to learn from this blog about understanding and supporting those we love.
