A Different Kind of Sunday Session

by RB

It was only 3 years ago, on a Sunday afternoon, that I would be at the pub; listening to live music, drinking a beer or glass of wine after having smoked a joint before leaving the car. I would feel anxious about being there, worrying if I looked good, nervous if guys talked to me, and really quite uncomfortable… but, to avoid feeling all of that, I would just get stoned and have another drink. I would eat junk food as it was easy and cheap. I wasn’t really enjoying myself, but it’s what everyone else was doing, so I thought that I should be doing it too. I did not know any other way.

Last Sunday was so very different, so relaxing, and I enjoyed every moment. I spent my Sunday arvo doing a session swap with a fellow esoteric student. We shared ideas on how to be more responsible with our savings, we discussed healthy recipes, and I shared what I had learnt at a recent workshop with Chris James. We were both connected with each other, listening and expressing, taking the time to fully listen to what each one of us was saying. We both laughed and had a great time.

Thanks to the courses that Universal Medicine has presented, I have learnt so much. What is so great is that instead of just learning, reading and gaining knowledge, I have been able to connect to me again, and make this connection my way of life. The connection to me has been created by my taking the time to tune into my body and feel it – rather than ignoring my body and its loud signals, and living life based on what ‘everyone else is doing’. I no longer need to do certain things at the expense of my body, just to fit in to what society considers normal, even if it is quite harmful.

Now I do know another way, and I wouldn’t want my life to be any different. Being present, aware, drug and alcohol free is what makes me feel so great today.

  1. It is a deeply beautiful experience to feel how settling our connection to who we are is, as we realise that through this connection we get to know and live who we really are and how nothing can compare to the power, joy and freedom of loving being ourselves.

  2. I have had many times in my life where I would observe others, and myself taking part in activities that I felt were futile and a waste of time but didn’t know how to access something different which was more meaningful. That was until Universal Medicine came into my life and showed me that life is about purpose and that these things we do to mask that are all just distractions away from our true purpose.

  3. Great turnaround. I would say that why you feel great today is because you are connected more the inner beauty inside you which was also shielded off by drinking alcohol, taking drugs and eating foods that did not honour or support your body.

  4. Beautiful this is showing us all that by living true to what you feel and be connected to yourself; knowing you from your essence – holds a deep stillness. We are so much more than we have ever thought of simply because our mind cant coprehend, because love comes from our inner-heart and will be always felt through the whole body.

    1. Beautifully said Danna – it is such a confirmation of who we are and where we are from when we realise this, that we are forever held in God’s love and always guided to live the light of who we are through ‘the truth in our hearts’ whenever we surrender to it.

  5. To me Universal Medicine is not ever about gaining knowledge, just reading a book to put it aside or learning for the sake of learning. I have never been interested in formal education because for me I see that it doesn’t work we are left bereft of who we are and what we can achieve naturally. Being a student of Universal Medicine meets my criteria of what true education is all about, supporting each and every one to find their natural place in life.

  6. It makes sense that if we feel disgruntled about something in our life then we go to the obvious fixers alcohol, smoking, drugs and food but in those moments it hardly ever occurs to us that those things will just make everything worse in the long run.

  7. This article made me really aware of how we try and fit in even when we can feel it does not support us. I have certainly chosen lots of things that I thought where normal which are not supportive for me or anyone else. We can live another way and how we develop the confidence to do so is very much about healing what gets in the way of that. Which is where Universal Medicine and the Esoteric Modalities are incredibly supportive and inspiring. .

  8. This is what I find fascinating about Universal Medicine and the presentations and workshops I have attended, it is not just about learning to gain knowledge as you say RB. There is a possibility to reconnect to that part of us that probably hasn’t seen the light of day since we were kids and we knew everything instantly, because we could feel what was going on in life. The more I give myself permission to connect back to that quality within me, the more settled I feel in my body. That is like winning the lottery every single day because I’m not running away from myself any more, that is huge.

  9. This is such an honest blog about the choices we can make to trash ourselves through a lack of self-worth issues, all those thoughts that we are not good enough comparing to others, jealousy that others have what we want but cannot be bothered to make the effort ourselves. And then there is Universal Medicine and this to me is TRUE education because we get to feel what it is like to connect to ourselves first and then live life from this connection and it is completely different far more enriching and rewarding way to live.
