A Course in Miracles

by Anne Malatt, Australia

Some years ago I met a man, Serge Benhayon, who inspired me. I had a healing session with him and began attending Universal Medicine courses. These courses have been a course in miracles.


I am now my true weight, having carried over 20 kg in excess weight for years.

I do not diet, in the usual sense. I eat what I feel my body needs, in the quantity it needs, at the time it needs, to nourish and sustain it.

I have changed my diet, which was full of carbohydrates and sugar and loaded with gluten and dairy, to one which is now rich in quality, nourishing food.

I used to need to eat these foods to keep my exhausted body going and to help me to not feel the pain and sadness I was in. I now no longer need them, as I no longer feel this way.

I no longer drink coffee, having been addicted to it and needing it to get through the day.

I was exhausted, and needed coffee and sugar to fuel me, to keep me going, to do the things I thought I needed to do each day. I now have all the energy I need. It is only a breath away.

I no longer drink alcohol, having previously been addicted to it.

Alcohol was my ‘friend’. It was a treat at the end of a long hard day in a long hard life. It picked me up, it sweetened me, it was a substitute for caring for myself. It was my only way of giving myself permission to stop and sit. Now, if I want a moment with myself, I stop and take a moment. Just for me, just with me – wherever I am, without the need for anything from the outside. I love my days now and enjoy the way I feel at the end of my day, most days, and now I don’t need a reward to feel good.

I now sleep like a baby, having been an insomniac.

I used to stay up late, fuelling myself with alcohol, coffee and sugar. I never felt the day was enough, and would stay up looking for more. Now, I wind down after work and go to bed when my body is tired, by  9pm. I sleep soundly and wake feeling rested and refreshed in the morning, looking forward to the day.

I don’t often feel stressed now, having lived under constant (self-induced) stress in the past.

I still feel anxious and stressed at times, but when I do, I take a moment to stop and bring myself back, by focussing on my breath and what I am feeling in my body. I don’t go looking for stress or excitement to make me feel alive or to distract me from my other feelings, because I feel great and have no need for anything outside me.

I am now in the tenth year of my relationship, having been a serial runner-away from relationships.

This relationship has not exactly been easy. But we have, by loving perseverance and commitment to ourselves and each other, developed a quality of love that I would not have dreamed was possible for me when I was young.

I am in a loving relationship, having been in abusive ones before.

I now care for myself enough to have a relationship in which anything less than love is not tolerated. If either one of us brings less than love, in our words, behaviour or being, we say so, as lovingly as we can, to bring awareness to them and to help each other return to love. We are as honest as we can be with each other at all times, and whatever is happening between us, we deal with problems by remembering first and foremost that we love each other.

I like myself.

I did not used to feel this way. I now appreciate who I am and what I offer.

I care for myself.

I have come to understand that I cannot care for another until I learn to truly care for myself. And, I am putting this into practice, for myself, my family and for everyone.

On a good day, and most days are, I even love myself.

Every one of these is a miracle. Together, they are amazing. And today, I am amazing, and I feel it and I know it. I am a living miracle.


  • I have never been told what to do (no-one has ever been able to do that!).
  • I have been shown a loving way of life, by someone who lives it himself. Serge shares this way with his family, who also live it, and they share it with others.
  • I have been inspired by example: a simple, loving way of life, that is natural, that is the way my body truly wants to live.
  • I have been reminded that this way is found inside me, by listening to my innermost voice, the living wisdom of my body.
  • I have re-connected to myself, and made this connection my way of life.
  • This way is the Way of the Livingness.

  1. Yes The Way of The Livingness is something that works with all parts of our lives at the same time and not just a single part, which I find so super awesome about it.

  2. What you so beautifully describe Anne is a deepening relationship within ourselves, a reconnection to our innermost.

  3. And what an inspiration are you to all of us who have only recently come across the works of Serge Benhayon. People like yourself and others who have been practicing The Way of The Livingness to me are shining stars showing me the possibilities for me in life.

  4. Absolutely Beautiful Anne! I can feel the love you now have for yourself inspiring me to value, deepen and connect more to the love in myself and this is how the miracles get passed on.

  5. We tend to think of miracles as being not even a once in a lifetime thing, but as being so rare that you only hear about something that happened long ago, but the truth is that miracles are an everyday affair if we are open to them. I could easily sit down and compile a long list of miracles that have changed my life since I started to open up to love.

  6. Sometimes the route of our life can seem inexorable and that we were forever destined to be as we are. Yet this is absolutely not true. Our everyday choices define what comes next and creates a momentum. It’s this build up of force that can seem predictable – it is, and takes some commitment to break. Thank you Anne for this powerful blog.

  7. It is a miracle that lives on and on, when we become aware of and can feel the contrast between living entrenched, encumbered and drowning in all that we are not whilst struggling to get through each day, to living more and more freely all that we are in awe of exploring the magic of who we are the life we are here to live, as a consequence of The Way of The Livingness. This is a way of living that at the end of the day is led by our connection to our Soul, our inner-truth, our wisdom in which we all have access to from within. A way of living that has no end to deepen our relationship with who we are, all that we are connected to, the universe, each other, God and our Godliness.

  8. It occurs to me that when we truly heal and deal with our hurts and our issues, miracles happen for it is they that form the causes of our lack of truth in life in the first place.

  9. I love this Anne. Beautify expressed and claimed. This is what The Way of The Livingness brings when we choose this way of living for ourselves. We become the miracles – it is utterly incredible what and how we heal.

  10. Such deep appreciation shared in this blog about some of the miracles that have occurred for Anne, not just one but many miracles. Why is everyone not wanting what Anne has found?

  11. A course in miracles… absolutely Anne! Observing the change in my life, as a result of the Universal Medicine courses has been equally miraculous as yours. Observing the equal life changes of hundreds and hundreds of Universal Medicine students just make the miraculous changes normal!

  12. Miracles are aplenty when we choose to live life from the inside–out rather than from the outside-in. When we allow ourselves to live from the impulse of our innermost, we inform the outer with a more loving way to be rather than allowing the external world to shape who we are and thus deviate away from what is true and known deep within us all.
