Universal Medicine in My Life

by Leigh Matson, UK

I was introduced to Serge Benhayon and the teachings of Universal Medicine via a Vietnam retreat in 2011. Originally I had no intention of joining Universal Medicine. I just wanted a holiday.

Before Universal Medicine:

  • I was introverted, wanting NOTHING to do with other people.
  • I was very miserable with life in general and had an overall sense of dread when considering the next, however many decades it is I’ve yet to live.
  • I had no spark or interest in interacting with life, people, the world… anything.
  • I was very hateful towards myself to the point of horrible thoughts.

After Universal Medicine:

  • I now see people as a benefit, something I want in my life. It’s not the people I don’t want to look at, but the reflections they provide. Gradually I’m learning to accept those as well.
  • Building up from only wanting to do the minimum amount of work to get me by, I’m determined to find full-time work in the catering industry. Those who know, know what a demanding profession this is.
  • I look forward to whatever life brings me, as I know that there are those around me who can help me understand more and more.
  • I would never want to go back to the closed-off life I had before Universal Medicine, and while I may wobble now and then, it’s certain that I do want to keep expanding what I have started.

Serge Benhayon has presented to me a sense (and examples) that life doesn’t have to be hard, and with commitment it can be something very special and enjoyable.

In regards to my one-to-one sessions:

The sessions I have with my practitioner, Bina Pattel, are absolutely invaluable. They provide me with an example of how Serge’s presentations can be lived in an everyday, normal way.

Going to Bina Pattel and seeing, experiencing and being told how she goes about her everyday life shows me that it can be achieved. It’s not just for the minority, but for anyone and everyone who chooses this way of living. As to why I continue to go, it’s so I remain on track and avoid slipping into bad habits, abusive habits or downright destructive habits.

The best way I can explain my consistency with my sessions is something along the lines of:
a builder repeatedly looks back to his blueprints to make sure that the building is being constructed properly. In a sense, Bina Pattel is the blueprint I look to for guidance on how to go about life. I’m not relying on my practitioner to take all my problems away – she simply shows me how I can do that for myself.

This isn’t something where you can just go to one of Serge Benhayon’s presentations and instantly, from there on, have an absolutely amazing life – at least that has been my experience. It’s something that needs baby steps, to grow and gather momentum before it can just take off and support itself. It’s about building a self-loving foundation that supports my body and keeps things simple.

  1. It’s true Leigh, ‘a builder repeatedly looks back to his blueprints to make sure that the building is being constructed properly’. And this is something that we all need to do for our own daily lives to ensure we are constantly confirming the strength of our foundations while also maximizing on the opportunities and potential we have to develop and grow.

    1. And we all do this everyday, looking at blueprints from how the world around us lives. But where Serge Benhayon shakes it up is that he lives from an inner blueprint that at first we follow but his lead is always for us to return to our own inner-most plans.

  2. It is inspiring how through your relationship with Universal Medicine you have chosen to turn your life around, commit to you and commit to life so that you now live more of who you are, rather than accept existing in the struggle of who you were not. It is empowering to realise that we are the ones making choices in every moment, and when we bring our attention to the choices we are making we relaise that what we are choosing is what shapes the lives we live and are experiencing.

  3. Our foundation is built from our quality of energy we are moving in and it is from these movements that we find connection to our bodies and our daily living unfolds in magical ways. Doing the dishes and or washing used to be mundane household chores but to me now when done with the fine detail of my body’s movements feel exquisite and help bring consistency to how I hold myself throughout my week. When our movements change so does our outlook on life and how we live it. Thank you, Leigh.

  4. Most things in life that bring a feeling of fulfillment require a commitment and dedication. Universal Medicine presents a way to commit to living life with, by and for love for humanity – yourself included.

    1. Very true Mary, quality requires care, attention, consistency and commitment. We see this in products and pride ourselves on what we put into a high quality product produced. But do we see our relationships, our health, our sense of self, of feeling content in life as a product? More and more I am learning that it is vital to take that step back to appreciate the quality of life I now live and the support Universal Medicine and many others have given towards this current ‘end’ result.

  5. As you say, Leigh, what Serge Benhayon presents is not some wonder pill that removes all one’s issues overnight. However, what he shows is a way that, if one chooses and willing to make the changes in one’s life, does transform one’s life.

  6. Thank you Leigh for sharing how you are now committing to changing your life to live the love you are, one step at a time, we all have this blueprint within us to guide us through life, along with healing sessions that support us further.

  7. One cannot argue with the benefits you have outlined here that you have gained from applying what you learnt from the presentations of Universal Medicine to your own life. This is simply beautiful Leigh and an inspiration to all

  8. Just like when you walk down a road or drive down the road the wrong way or in a direction that you find doesn’t take you to where you know you should be, you will need to turn around completely and go back the way you came. You can’t just arrive and then change the arrival point in an instant, all you can do is change the direction with the intention to have the location change or to have another location in mind and then set your course to it. I guess healing is the same, we have walked down a road that has lead us to a point of healing. In that you have a clear point of where you need to be next and then comes the walk to that point and the re-walk of the road we have travelled. As we know everything we do that doesn’t support us will need to be re-done in order to complete the healing for everyone.

  9. Spot on Leigh, ‘ It’s about building a self-loving foundation that supports my body and keeps things simple.’ Universal Medicine shows us there is a different way to live and be in the world and the love we build for ourselves supports us to experience deeper relationships with others and to have a greater understanding of life.

  10. I feel this statement ‘a builder repeatedly looks back to his blueprints to make sure that the building is being constructed properly’ is gold.
    In reality everyone is reflecting something to us whether they are a Universal Medicine practitioner or not. In the grandness of it all life projects this to us everyday, its only when we are ready to let go of those hurtful shackles, the blueprints emerge and then we can reconstruct our building.

  11. Absolutely there are no quick fixes in life – a true and amazing life takes daily building and requires our attention every moment of every day – you could say it’s a full time job – but what an amazing process that daily building is …

  12. Bringing what we learn from the Universal Medicine presentations alive in our day to day lives definitely helps us make sense of what is going on within ourselves and the world around us.

  13. Leigh thank you for sharing your experiences, when I came across Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, I realised that I was the maker of how my life was, and through simply making more loving choices my life changed, and from my commitment to be honest and loving with myself so too does my life continue to change.

  14. It’s great to see the huge difference between the two lists. And I so love what you say in the last paragraph, and this is a great reminder for me as well, that it’s not about going to a presentation or having a session. It is something we build with baby steps, it is all in our hands and whether and how much to make use of it, is entirely up to each one of us. And it also reminded me a recent conversation I had with someone where they said to me that they believe people are born a certain way and it is not possible to change that – e.g. criminals are born criminals, addictions cannot be stopped etc. So I asked how they would explain when some people can change their habit and the way they approach life because we do meet those people, or at least hear about them, and their response was that these occurrences were just coincidence, a fluke. They should meet you.
