No Alcohol or Drugs: No Boring Party here

by Anonymous, Mullumbimby NSW

I went to a concert and end of year party. Unlike many other parties at this time of the year, there was no alcohol or drugs, no fights or emotional outbursts.

When I was a drinker and a smoker, the thought of going to a party without any drugs sounded so boring to me. I just could not imagine how anyone could have any fun without being under the influence of something.

Well, recently I had a blast! Danced my little butt off… and really enjoyed myself.

I ate delicious, healthy gluten and dairy free food as part of a shared meal, and water was my drink of choice for the night.

I listened to an amazing music concert, performed by various artists who had written their own music and really put their hearts into expressing lyrics that were meaning-full and didn’t leave anyone feeling sad or emotional. The dances that were performed on stage were so well thought out and so inspiring: one in particular by the Baldwin sisters was just so beautifully performed. I was so happy that my daughter was there with me to witness it, as these women are such great role models. (There are some pretty scary role models out there when you are 9 years old and everyone you know at school is into Pop Stars!)

It was absolutely great to be around 300 or more people who were having a great time… and it was beautiful to watch people dance, express themselves in their own individual way and have fun.

Big thanks to Natalie Benhayon, Michael Benhayon and Curtis Benhayon who are so professional and supportive in the clinic setting, in the sessions they give – and yet come out and be so playful and joyful. Your music and dance moves are just beautiful to listen to and watch.

  1. By far today, I prefer alcohol free gatherings and parties. There is a lightness, and an allowance to be you rather than having to play a role or act a certain way. But if one is not used to this (being oneself) one can feel very uncomfortable to begin with, until such time that one let’s go and allows oneself to really be seen.

  2. A party without drugs or alcohol is one that asks the person to be who they are, nothing more and nothing less. It asks a person to show themselves to the best of their ability. This can be very scary to do if we are not used to it, and have always used alcohol or drugs as a shield or protection or distraction away from what we feel and how we feel.

  3. What a celebration of life Universal Medicine end of year gatherings are and most people understand a different meaning when it comes to partying and if we break the word down we are a part that ‘y’ou attend not the full “you” and a celebration is inspirational for all who attend as it fortifies us in our divine connection!

  4. It is lovely going to a party where there are no drugs or alcohol because everyone is being themselves, no drama, just people having fun and enjoying themselves.

  5. Being part of Universal Medicine is allowing me to understand and experience what true joy is about. It’s all about connection with myself, my body and its natural state which is very tender and exquisite. Nothing to do with what I’ve been seen and understood about having fun in the past. It’s the Livingness – living in connection with our inner-most- that is available for all, to be reclaimed and celebrated.

  6. Now this party sounds like one I would absolutely have loved to attended, not because I am in my ‘elder’ years and may be classed as boring, but because I have come to appreciate and thoroughly enjoy an alcohol-free celebration. In recent years I have attended wonderful parties like this; I have danced, sung and have loved strutting my elder stuff!

  7. Your blog reminded me of the emotional dramas and fighting I have seen at parties, as well as men predatoring on women, accidents, people unable to walk, vomiting… if this is what we call a party then we may need to reconsider how the way we live life must feel for this to be fun by contrast!

    1. Hear hear – Such a simple and easy truth you present here – thank you! We have made normal in society those things that are not really normal in truth to our body. And so as we re-discover the true normal, then we get to reconnect to how to live in a natural and normal way, a way that does not include alcohol, drugs or late nights. Has anyone ever interviewed the liver after it has had to deal with a whole night of drinking? or the adrenals or the Nervous system after a whole night of drugs and lack of sleep? No one organ could honestly say that such a treatment would feel good. Is this not enough evidence that this behaviour is not really a ‘normal’ for us?

  8. If only we dared to go out without having any form of alcohol or drugs we would experience such a beautiful feeling of being at one with other people, the one thing we miss the most.

  9. US having a great time, is very different to us under the influence of drugs, alcohol and other substances, ‘letting loose’ on a night out.

  10. There’s nothing boring about knowing who you are and having the confidence to express that, in fact, the magnificence of knowing who you are makes drugs and alcohol boring and an extremely poor substitute.

  11. I agree it is just beautiful to see the Benhayon’s be totally on the game of being professional and supporting all their clients to feel the truth and for them to step out onto the stage and be totally committed to expressing with their music and dance moves. Really inspiring for sure.

  12. The Universal Medicine parties are truly amazing, they invite a new way to celebrate by simply being connected to the essence of who we are within and letting it out in full. A love filled joyous event!

  13. Really boring parties are the ones where everyone is getting out of it on drugs and alcohol, for as if a sober participant, it is clear to see that the party is all happening in their own heads, as there is no real connection at all with each other.

  14. How refreshing and inspiring it is to see and feel a celebration that that does not impose on us that we need to be stimulated or under the influence to enjoy ourselves. What could be more confirming than celebrating who we naturally are.

  15. I guess when we bring love to the party, there is no need for drugs, alcohol and the like. Nor any reason for emotional outbursts and fights. Sounds like a recipe for a way of life.

  16. All of my social outings now are alcohol and drug free and often when I’m at a celebration of sorts, whether it be a wedding or end of year party, I always feel so humbled by how much more I enjoy connecting with people without the need of stimulants to mask the fact that I’m not comfortable with who I am.

  17. Pure joy can be so simple when we allow ourselves to be who we are and then joy is simply an emanation of this inner wealth.

  18. That seemed to be a great party you had been. How wonderful that everybody was not influenced by any drugs or alcohol – I am sure there are only a few people out there who can share about such an experience. That is really something worth sharing so that people can see that it is possible to enjoy a celebration without being drunk.

  19. I’ve been to only one Universal Medicine party and it was unforgettable, like no other hundreds of parties I’ve attended. What I loved about it was the sense of unity, sharing of home cooked food, true laughter and it finished at a decent time so we could be home in plenty of time to have an early night. What a contrast to what I grew up around.

  20. It’s very true, it is possible to have a great time at a celebration without the need for alcohol or drugs, it is a time to enjoy being yourself and being with others, no comparison or judgment just the joy of being with each other.

  21. It is beautiful the way our children are welcomed to all the Universal Medicine celebrations and the powerful reflection they receive from hundreds of adults enjoying themselves immensely without any need for alcohol or drugs.

  22. I too love that juxtaposition of Curtis, Michael and Natalie Benhayon, the practitioners with Curtis, Michael and Natalie the performers. It’s not that their playfulness is totally absent in their healing sessions, or their exquisite professionalism is not apparent in their performances, it is more that they fully express in whatever they do.

  23. In the past I would have felt quite awkward going to a party without alcohol. Alcohol used to take the edge off and used to make me what I thought was ‘more relaxed’. Its awesome now to be in a space where I don’t need alcohol and feel quite comfortable going into any situation without needing a buffer.

  24. I have really become used to the Universal Medicine concerts and now being in a an environment where drink is not a part of celebration. What replaces it is music and dancing that is there for everyone to be a part of equally, whether you are on stage performing or dancing in the aisles, or just sitting listening. No one is less for wherever they are in the room, which encompasses what Universal Medicine is all about, everyone being part of the whole and equal in that status.

  25. It’s interesting that a lot of people think celebration and alcohol are synonymous and also that it is harmless. But as with anything if we are honest we really need to see both sides of the coin and open our eyes to the dark side of alcohol and the fallout it causes from the behaviours that we would usually never do unless we were under the influence of alcohol or worse, are even excused because someone was drunk.

  26. Today I clocked how normal it is for me to enjoy life with no need for a glass of wine at the end of the day. There was a time when I was pretty reliant on a glass of wine and today it doesn’t even cross my radar.

    1. This is something to deeply appreciate Fiona. Living with no needing anything extra to feel content and joyful with ourselves is a true success, out of this world and something very needed to be shared with others.
