The Best Day

by Dr Rachel Hall, Holistic Dentist, Kenmore Brisbane

I had the best day yesterday at the Universal Medicine end of year talk, concert and dance celebration. The room was full with so much love, laughter, fun and talent and amazing people all under one roof having the time of their life. No alcohol or drugs needed here, just people being themselves and having a blast. I danced my butt off (not literally!), clapped, cheered, laughed, cried and sang my heart out.

I feel a deep joy at knowing that I can have the best day and days ever without the need to alter who I am. So a huge shout out to my main man Mr Serge Benhayon and all the awesome, amazing students of Universal Medicine who are choosing to live a life of self-care, love and connection to others.

Thank you to all the great speakers and performers and everyone who attended for providing such a special day.

  1. I spent my whole life looking for the ideal party and at last the true celebrations of Universal Medicine have shown me that life is the celebration that I had been looking for. As a Student of The Livingness my feeling is that I am continually blessed by the simple things in life that make me feel complete without any external stimulation. Totally Rachel, Serge Benhayon is a constant reflection of his undeniable Love.

So a huge shout out to my main man Mr Serge Benhayon and all the awesome, amazing students of Universal Medicine who are choosing to live a life of self-care, love and connection to others.” I love coming together with other students to share in courses and events presented by Serge. They are completely life-changing.

  3. Serge Benhayon is a reflection of man who chooses to live truth and love in nearly every moment of his life. There is nothing super special about this man, other than feeling inspired by the quality in which he chooses to live and hold all others in his life.

  4. The joy you felt is absolutely palpable through your words and such a pleasure to read. There are few events that offer such a celebration and yet for Universal Medicine it seems to be the norm.

  5. Not feeling the pressure to conform to anything other than being simply ourselves is one of the greatest gifts we can ever bless ourselves with.

  6. These celebrations are so much fun, I too experience the same as you Rachel. I love the music, I dance my butt off, laugh, cry, share and love connecting with everyone there. Being amongst so many people, I felt totally at ease to express myself and join in with the fun. I was able to completely be myself, what a contrast to how I used to party in my late teens and early twenties? A massive difference, well to be exact it was a world of difference.

  7. I do indeed love a good Universal Medicine celebration. In fact every Universal Medicine is a celebration, even in Sacred Esoteric Healing Level 2 where you are processing childhood hurts. But it’s all so worth it because you get to feel even more the depth to the beauty we all are. Why wouldn’t we want to celebrate that in every moment.

  8. “I feel a deep joy at knowing that I can have the best day and days ever without the need to alter who I am.” Thanks for this Rachel – reading this I realised I had been taking this for granted of late. Now I back in deep appreciation instead.

  9. Do children need stimulation like alcohol or drugs to enjoy themselves, surely not, they just need space to express as who they are; it is the same with adults. Universal Medicine gives that space, encourages to restore that space for oneself, simply provides the tools and understanding to once again just be oneself. That is always worth a celebration.

    1. Beautiful Alex, it is like returning to the playfulness of childhood where we didn’t need anything to enjoy ourselves, we just played, danced and sang…. and didn’t consider taking our selves out with substances.

  10. Thank you Rachel for sharing your joy of these end of year events, I too love them so much, freedom to just be and let ourselves feel the freedom to dance and sing in celebration of who we are and the love we hold for ourselves and everyone else together.

  11. What a wonderful reflection this is of the fact that we can be joy-full without the need of external stimulants but in the simplicity of being ourselves. Saves a lot of money too!

  12. A night you can remember clearly, vitality is just the same from start to finish, you can work the next day just like you always do and you get to meet other amazing people who also don’t change how they are for one outing. Love it!

  13. My life now is something so different to what I have ever imagined it to be. It is incredible to feel how much it has changed, something I never felt was possible. Days like this are an amazing opportunity to reflect on and appreciate what is now lived.

  14. Your experience Rachel goes to show that our best days and celebrations do not have to be marked by alcohol nor illegal drugs for if we are honest we will admit that both those substances actually numbs our awareness and thus our experience.

  15. The best day ever: when you know that you no longer need to change who you are to fit into the world you just have to be yourself. I love it.

  16. To attend a concert and celebrate having an amazing day because we feel amazing without one drop of alcohol in sight is indeed extremely rare but it is what I love about Universal Medicine; we are supported to be all of who we truly are.

  17. It is the best feeling having a dance off with your friends or people you barely even know, completely sober with absolutely no anxiety around simply being yourself and then being home by 9pm and waking up in the morning ready and raring to go! Once upon a time I knew this was possible but couldn’t see how given what was around me, but today it’s my reality and I couldn’t be more appreciative of that!

    1. I love this as well Elodie, celebrating in this way is also a highlight for me and what a great feeling to go to bed and wake up feeling sober and much lighter and clearer – definitely worth appreciating these loving choices.

  18. The music and performers at these Universal Medicine events are out-standing to feel, watch, adore and celebrate. I enjoy how the many keep appearing on stage reflecting to us we all have something to present and it is a healing for all to receive.

  19. “I feel a deep joy at knowing that I can have the best day and days ever without the need to alter who I am.” That is really something to appreciate Rachel as this is not how people normally are! Thank you so much for being such an amazing role-model to show the world what is possible without drugs or alcohol or any other stimulation.

  20. After this year’s retreats I felt that today can only ever be my second best day because I feel so amazing and expanded that tomorrow can only be an expansion on today.

  21. I love the parties that are hosted by Universal Medicine, I only wish everyone in the world was able to know that a party like this is possible. Before Universal Medicine, I wanted to go to a party like that but there was nowhere that offered dancing and fun without drugs and alcohol accept for maybe the Church. Considering I was not interested in institutionalised Religion that did not feel like an option. There is nothing better than having a great night out without a conscience of a hangover.

  22. I second what you have shared Rachel about Universal Medicine end of year celebrations, this is a party like no other party, no drugs or alcohol needed just sharing and expressing the love and joy we feel in our celebration of being together in dance, and music, with so much fun.

  23. “So a huge shout out to my main man Mr Serge Benhayon and all the awesome, amazing students of Universal Medicine who are choosing to live a life of self-care, love and connection to others.” A beautiful celebration of who we are to which everyone is invited, let’s get humanity dancing to the vibrations of the Universe.

  24. Well said and very true Rachel, the end of year celebrations are an awesome way to end the year and celebrate all the joy and love that Universal Medicine and the student body has bought to our lives.

  25. These are great days for all of us and the quality of it is really something to behold. Not many gatherings of this size come together in this style of quality and it’s great to see it sharply documented here. More and more are we seeing as people that the way of life we have chosen for ourselves is in a way killing us. This quality of relationships are a sure way to, not to be better but to be true to what the relationship is in front of you. It’s a chance to learn more about life and about people and bring more understanding to what we are already seeing and feeling in the world.

    1. Absolutely Ray, quality is everything and this is becoming more and more obvious as many resort to more intense extremes to cope with the disturbed quality felt within. Bringing true quality back into all our lives is the key to true community and not what we often see today which is not so pleasant and functional at best.

      1. Yes and when we accept things or resign to them not changing or following it because it’s a new norm we support a lessening further of this quality. The more you keep surrendering back to how we truly feel and bringing an expression to this the more we will see life change back to ‘this’ quality. No matter how well something looks it’s always the quality that is felt that should be our guide.

  26. Universal Medicine is setting the standards of what true celebrations are all about, there is so much respect and love amongst people that creates such a joy in one’s bodies as you don’t get wasted to have fun but get totally energised and deeply inspired to celebrate each other for who we are.

  27. Thus far I have attended only one end of year talk and party and I have never attended a party like this before. What was different about it? There was no alcohol, drugs, desserts etc, it was full of people who had bought dishes lovingly cooked for sharing. The music was perfect, the dancing was perfect, it didn’t matter if we had two left feet too, kids were dancing, there were no handbags in the middle of the dance floor – it was real.

    We finished in plenty of time to have an early night too so no sleepless nights or hangovers. Now thats a true party with real people with no side effects.

  28. Well said Rachel “I feel a deep joy at knowing that I can have the best day and days ever without the need to alter who I am.” Beautiful to feel the joy when people are just being who they are.
