The Best Way I Know How To Thank Serge Benhayon

by Nicole Mansfield, Dental Nurse, Goonellabah, Australia

I first heard about Universal Medicine through some colleagues at work a couple of years ago. I was curious, and so went along to a Livingness 1 workshop, started reading one of Serge Benhayon’s books, and I think I’ve attended everything I can since!

I live with my partner and our 2 ½ year old son. My partner and I have a “normal” relationship, I guess – we chat, watch movies, go on holidays, play with our son, and visit our families… Until recently however, we never really connected with each other. We were great at running the house and ourselves like a kind of “business”, if you like – we were good at organising everything and we knew a “good” relationship must involve “our” time and some sex. I made sure that myself and “all of it” was under control; everything ran smoothly and looked great. But was it really great?

Soon after I started attending events with Universal Medicine and getting some regular esoteric massage sessions, I began to notice A LOT in the way I was living! I started to change little things I was doing in my life. For example, I felt how my belly was after eating certain foods – and even before I ate the food. I actually stopped, and thought about what that food would feel like in my belly, instead of just shoving food in just because it was there. This resulted in me changing my meals to suit my belly. Who would have thought!

But I didn’t just stop at my belly! I started feeling the rest of my body… I found that when I watched TV at night, lying on the couch, I felt “hooked in”, as if in a trance of some sort. I knew (in myself) that I should get off the couch and go to bed, but I remained “hooked” – I had to see what happened next! Finally, when I did turn the TV off, I could feel straight away how exhausted I was, and I would literally crawl into bed. The sad thing was, I had no care or energy to even say goodnight to my partner – some nights I would leave him asleep on the couch. Now I go to bed early because that is what my body likes best. And as a result, I wake up early and have time to prepare for my day. Amazing. Beforehand, I would just eat, get dressed and have to run out the door!

During this time, my partner was diagnosed with Graves’ disease. He suffered horrible migraines amongst other symptoms. There was a six month period where he needed to take some strong drugs, during which he wasn’t able to drink alcohol at all. His specialist said that because in his case his thyroid levels were so high, he didn’t have high hopes for the drugs to work, and that he would most likely need to have his thyroid removed.

My partner has also been a big coffee drinker. After he was diagnosed, I spoke to him about the effects of caffeine on his nervous system. He had spent the past six months or so watching me make the changes I’d made in my life, including the caffeine, and seeing the difference in me. So he decided to make some changes himself. It was either “give that a shot”, or the specialist’s prognosis of removal of his thyroid.

I asked the specialist if there were any lifestyle changes he should make that would give the drugs a better chance of working, and he replied “No”.

What was amazing, was that my partner started feeling better straight away. He drank tea for a few months, then cut out caffeine altogether. He also started changing his meals – and found he slowly lost weight and had more energy. He started coming to bed with me at a much earlier time, too. He could only be on these drugs for six months, and the specialist was sure his thyroid levels would escalate once he had stopped the treatment. The specialist however was surprised to see that they didn’t escalate. To this day, his thyroid levels are still in normal range.

The week after he finished his treatment, I was certain that he would come home with some beer. But no, he told me that he felt better without drinking alcohol. Bear in mind, my partner is a plumber. He works with hundreds of men on construction sites in a remote location in the mines. He does not waver when he tells his workmates he doesn’t drink – which is unheard of in the industry! They don’t understand, but they do respect him – because he is being himself.

Over these past couple of years then, I can truly say that both of us have naturally made more loving choices for ourselves, and our son. We see our relationship very differently now, with a huge amount of respect for each other. The way my partner talks to me now, is AMAZING. He shares how he feels about me, what I say and do, how that affects him, and vice versa. And it’s more than that – he’s in touch with how he’s feeling and is able to communicate that with me. Wow…   We still have our “days”, but we are growing more and more love in our home each week. He has commented on how my moods are more consistent – that I don’t have as many high and low days now, but just really consistent days. He’s even found himself more open with his workmates, and has commented that he seems to get a better outcome if he takes the time to connect with them. He’s also noticing that he’s not reacting as much when things don’t go to plan. With the communication issues we’ve had, I’m not sure if we would have still been together in another few years, had we not made these changes. Before, it was always too hard or too uncomfortable to talk about the deeper “how we feel” topics. We would just skim over them and hope that they would disappear.

My partner has only ever attended one presentation by Serge Benhayon, but he has seen and felt what I have been bringing home, and that has only ever been positive.

What I have been able to re-connect to within myself thanks to Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon, words cannot describe. The best way I know how to thank them, is to do my best to walk beside them every day.

Thank You Serge. I’m Walking!

  1. What is amazing is that the authors’ husband responded to the reflection and acted accordingly. It is so easy for us to ignore what we see and feel in favour of our ingrained ways.

  2. For some of us it comes down to that point of having to make changes otherwise if we continue we are going to get very sick and ill, so we make that choice to change. For some of us we don’t want to make those changes so we ignore that there is an option and continue in the way we have that got us to that point of ill-ness of dis-ease. We always have that choice.

  3. Nicole you say “What I have been able to re-connect to within myself thanks to Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon, words cannot describe.” Every sentience does a great job in the major changes in your life. You do not read about or hear these types of changes in the mainstream media unless there has been a major dis-ease or illness. It was noted your partner did have an illness but there were many changes on both sides – miraculous amount of extra-ordinary lasting changes.

  4. Bringing more awareness to what we are doing means we are more in charge on our health outcomes. Coffee has a direct effect on out nervous system and to choose to not clock that means we ‘need’ the coffee not ‘want’ the coffee. Without honesty we are at the mercy of our patterns of behaviour.

  5. The only way to thank Serge Benhayon for all that he brings is to live the truth of who we are in essence.

  6. Coming to Universal Medicine workshops gave me permission to be as aware and accept that I feel things. From there, as was the case for the author, everything changes as you stop trying to pretend everything is okay, or meeting the social norms and actually feel if it is true for you or not.

  7. “I asked the specialist if there were any lifestyle changes he should make that would give the drugs a better chance of working, and he replied “No”.” – I find this stance by your husband’s specialist really puzzling, because to say that lifestyle changes will not effect how a drug works in your body is to me the same as saying if a cigarette smoker stops smoking it will not help his lungs function more effectively. That being said, you have sure shown just how powerful lifestyle choices truly are Nicole and it’s awesome to see how your husband has felt the commitment to you in your Livingness that so inspired him to make positive changes as well.

  8. The wisdom shared by Universal Medicine is truly empowering, in how it supports everyone to re-connect with the innate wisdom inside us all, something we can then draw on in our everyday lives.

  9. Applying the changes in our own lives is the real medicine we can use to support us in how we live … I love this story as it shows that simple changes and choices can bring amazing changes to people’s lives and how each of us has within us the power to change.

  10. Nicole, I can very much relate to this; ‘Now I go to bed early because that is what my body likes best. And as a result, I wake up early and have time to prepare for my day. Amazing.’ I recently had the oppurtunity to really appreciate just how amazing it is to go to bed early and rise early. This is what I have been doing for the last few years and I have felt very well with this. A few nights ago I went to bed much later than usual and felt exhausted, I found that for the next few days I felt tired and was quite grumpy and then wanted to eat more to keep me going. This felt really awful in my body and made me appreciate how great it feels to go to bed early.

  11. Great sharing Nicole. It just goes to show that you do not need to attend all Universal Medicine presentations to feel a difference, you simply apply one truth to your life and everything changes.

  12. Nicole, I love this article, thank you for sharing. It is very beautiful to read this about how accepting your husbands workmates are; ‘They don’t understand, but they do respect him – because he is being himself.’ It makes me realise how accepting people can be if we are being ourselves, even if our choices are different from theirs.

  13. What you describe here is the Livingness Nicole, words are not necessary when we live what we know to be true, people are able to feel this and naturally start to make changes themselves.

  14. This is such a wonderful example of the power and reflection of our lived experience. We often think that we have to tell others what to do and how to live, but in truth all we have to do is to live the truth of who we are and to live that truth in every possible moment. It will be our living reflection that will inspire them.

    1. Yes, walking not talking!! I suspect we are more accustomed to controlling situations and therefore find it hard to let others have free-will even though we want that free-will for ourselves.

  15. It is so interesting the more we commit to ourselves and life, the more consistent and less rocky we are in our moods and can be so less reactive to life.

  16. Taking the time to change what does not support us in our lives is not only healing for ourselves but also to those around us, as beautifully reflected in the loving choices that Nicole’s partner started to make as a result of seeing the positive changes in Nicole.

  17. I reckon there is a lot to be said for giving yourself the time it takes to change naturally, and if necessary, slowly. So that every step is made with care and consideration, so that you know it to be true and wholly yours.

  18. The ripple effect of living true to ourselves and the wisdom which our body shares with us, reaches far and wide and is a support to others so that they too may make loving choices in their lives, if they so choose.

  19. I love this open honest relationship that you are talking about with your husband. It seems to be a vital part of any relationship that we should feel safe enough to share our thoughts and feelings, and to be vulnerable, knowing that this will be respected or even completely honoured.

  20. The more we are in tune with our body, the more we learn to express as needed rather than bottling things up and then building resentments. It is a blessing and a healing to allow ourselves to express freely in a relationship, and so much more can unfold from there.

  21. What a gorgeous sharing Nicole, and what is amazing is that the changes you are talking about are simple changes that are very do-able for anyone, and not only support your general wellbeing but also allow you a clearer connection with your Soul, to bring the true and lasting changes to life that we all are yearning for.

  22. Taking time and creating that moment to connect to me, and therefore with another and allow that connection to be, offers a moment to stop and feel more within and what is around me. It simplifies how to respond to life.

  23. The example of your husband making changes because of the the differences he saw in you, Nicole, is living proof that lived example is a far greater teacher than words.

  24. Thank you Nicole, this is very inspiring. It just goes to show that it is how we live that makes a difference and that by caring for our bodies and taking away some of the more toxic foods and beverages, our bodies begin to respond to a more natural healthy state.

  25. This is an amazing story, and especially now that your specialist doctor has a living proof that the lifestyle choice does have an affect on how well the medication would work and he is now able to offer the advice to his patients.

  26. Love is the way and considering what is not loving in our lives is a very useful activity, we too often use words, like ok, fine, alright, but Love is what we all want to know.

  27. What an inspiring account of how simple, everyday choices can make such a huge impact on the body. And I love how you didn’t have to preach to your husband, but it was the changes in you that inspired the amazing changes in him; a great example of the power of making self-loving choices.

  28. The quality in the way we live communicates everything far beyond any words or rules can denote. When we claim how we truly feel to live it naturally offers inspiration to others to come along too.

  29. It is through the way that we live that we we will change the world – which begs the question, what kind of world do we want to live in?

  30. When the crunch comes we know which way we need to go. But why do we wait till we are almost squished like a fly to finally follow what we know is true? The beautiful thing you show Nicole is just to be loving with ourselves when we move. We will make mistakes, but our common sense will suppprt us whatever we choose.

  31. There are so many aspects of our lives that we can look at the quality of presence that we bring and from that many of our relationships can flourish and deepen.

  32. It is interesting to realise that we are always noticing what others are doing and how they are living, further demonstrating the responsibility that we all have in living who we truly are to the best of our ability.

  33. There are now several members of my family that have made other changes to their diet and the effects have been, as afar as they are concerned spectacular, especially losing the excess weight they were carrying because they knew they were eating the wrong foods but had no will power to do anything about it.
    This shows me the power of reflection, my family are watching me far more than I appreciate and they see the changes in my life style and are making some changes to their way of living and are reaping the benefits.

  34. This blog shows us what can be achieved when we make a few changes to our lives and those changes are not that huge either. I remember when a family member decided to reduce and then stop their coffee consumption, they said it was like coming off a drug, their body shook, they felt ill and suffered with headaches, all this lasted a few days. And of course science has proven that coffee alters the chemicals in the brain, it races the heart and the nervous system. Given all this I do have to wonder why we drink it?

  35. I appreciate how your relationship with your partner deepened in its intimacy as he began to care for himself more and express what was happening for him.

  36. The realness and practical implementation of self care and respect in this article is very confirming that “TheWay Of The Livingness” is a true way to live. One that supports us in every aspect of our lives.

  37. “The best way I know how to thank them, is to do my best to walk beside them every day.” Absolutely, I would love for the whole of humanity to walk beside us, no need for special thanks, simply choosing to love ourselves again is the ultimate thank you.

  38. “My partner has only ever attended one presentation by Serge Benhayon, but he has seen and felt what I have been bringing home, and that has only ever been positive.” This so beautiful to hear and shows us that people observe much more than we realise and sometimes words are not needed, just living what we know to be true is enough for another to see that there is a different and more loving and caring way to live.

  39. Our body speaks for itself about what works and what doesn’t, no outside proof is necessary which makes for a very simple life…

  40. When we walk with ourselves, we walk with all…every person who has not heard about Universal Medicine or Serge Benhayon gets to feel your walk and can make their own choices to do the same.
