Natalie Benhayon: Ancient Wisdom through a 24-year old Woman

I first met Natalie Benhayon in 2009 where she was presenting at a Retreat of Universal Medicine in Vietnam. I remember being amazed and inspired by the purity, power and wisdom with which she was presenting. At the time Natalie was only 19 years old.

Through the years I have seen Natalie develop into the woman she is today: modern, soulful, inspiring, steady, sexy and sacred. With natural leadership qualities she continues to inspire women of all ages around the globe. Not by presenting through acquired knowledge but by presenting from her heart and from her livingness.

As a mature woman of forty-three, academically trained and with a level of wisdom myself, I have no trouble accepting that a woman nearly 20 years younger than me actually has access to a deeper level of wisdom than I have at this time. Not because she is more special than any other woman I know, but because of the consistency with which she lovingly holds herself, honours herself and cares for herself.

Natalie Benhayon undoubtedly inspires every man and woman she meets to be in their power, to express from their hearts and to never apologise for what they know is true for them. In a world where kids are pressured into being a certain way through education, cultural ideals and religion, it is essential that they are inspired to connect to the wisdom of their inner hearts.

So can we only learn from people with an extended list of educational credentials? How well is humanity doing relying on the so called intelligence of the mind? As a mother I am inspired by children every day, reminding me what life really is about: joy, playfulness, simplicity and love.

So could we say that age has nothing to do with wisdom?

Could we say that anything and anyone can reflect to us the wisdom and beauty we all have inside of us?

Natalie Benhayon inspires us all to be all that we are and is humbled to be inspired herself by every living creature she encounters.

Let us lose the pettiness of judging any person we meet by their age, educational/professional background or ethnicity. Let us be open to be inspired by the Beauty and Wisdom of All.

  1. I love this appreciation of Natalie Benhayon ❤️ with regards to these questions ‘So could we say that age has nothing to do with wisdom?’ and ‘Could we say that anything and anyone can reflect to us the wisdom and beauty we all have inside of us?’ It is a definite Yes and Yes ✨ Wisdom and true beauty is in all no matter what age.

  2. “Natalie Benhayon undoubtedly inspires every man and woman she meets to be in their power, to express from their hearts and to never apologise for what they know is true for them.” This is absolutely true and being 40 years older than her does not in anyway lesson this.

  3. You completely forget Natalie’s age when she is presenting. She has an ageless quality and a wisdom that stops you in your tracks. As a woman she shares from her own experience, which she has trued and tested to the max. I love her dedication to continually exploring everything about being a woman. This is not done for her but because of her deep love of people. We need guiding lights like Natalie to remind us of our true way.

  4. Katinka, I agree with what you have written here, ‘Let us lose the pettiness of judging any person we meet by their age, educational/professional background or ethnicity. Let us be open to being inspired by the Beauty and Wisdom of All.’ Working with children I see their wisdom and all that they have to offer, I also see how often they are not listened to and that there is an idea that as adults we are the intelligent ones because we have been through schooling and maybe university. From my experience, this can actually make us disconnect from our true wisdom and it is children that often hold their natural wisdom and are the ones who are being true to themselves. The education system and work seems to bring in a seriousness as we get older and life stops being about playfulness, joy and love as it was when many of us were young.

  5. Yes well said Katinka. Wisdom is the missing link in our education systems. We believe we are all beholden to learned knowledge but this ignores the fact that we are born with innate wisdom. Bring the two together and then we have true education.

  6. You never know what you will learn when you are open to the wisdom of the people around you and don’t close yourself off to that potential.

  7. Natalie is an elder of the community, yet young in age. Just goes to show that wisdom comes with connection, not necessarily age.

    1. So true Michael, Natalie is one of our highly respected and dearly loved elders in our community that many including myself seek counsel with.

  8. “Let us lose the pettiness of judging any person we meet by their age, educational/professional background or ethnicity. Let us be open to be inspired by the Beauty and Wisdom of All.” This is beautiful Katinka, we still have this concept that young people do not have the lived experience of life, so can’t know as much as the older generation, but what we don’t realise is they carry a natural wisdom that is way beyond their age. Natalie Benhayon is one such woman she has an amazing understanding of life and she has enriched many peoples lives including mine.

  9. Natalie just gets brighter and brighter. Over the years I have watched this young wise lady absolutely flourish, she is a living example of true love lived.

  10. Natalie Benhayon is an extraordinary young woman who both men and women can relate too very well. This is because she walks the talk. She does not pander to people because she knows that does not support them so instead she holds them in equalness and this makes her a true leader.

  11. Natalie Benhayon is living proof that a person’s age does not count when it comes to how wise they are. Natalie is 26 and has a connection to the Ageless Wisdom that very few people I know of any age have. She shows us that if we deeply reconnect with ourselves, regardless of our education level, then at any age, we are able to access the universal knowledge that is available.

  12. I have met many truly wise young people over the past few years and this reflects to me the fact that wisdom is innate in us all. Where this is understood and nurtured we get young women like Natalie Benhayon in our world – and this is a wonderful thing.

  13. “Let us lose the pettiness of judging any person we meet by their age, educational/professional background or ethnicity.” – great call Katinka – age is certainly no barrier nor given to wisdom and neither is our gender, ethnicity nor educational background.

  14. ‘Not because she is more special than any other woman I know, but because of the consistency with which she lovingly holds herself, honours herself and cares for herself’ In this Natalie Benhayon is a great role model and shows us the power that is innate in us all and how easily it is expressed when we allow that consistency in our own lives and we open to our connection with Universality.

  15. Natalie Benhayon is very inspiring. She emanates a warmth and love that is very holding and supportive of others. She holds herself with a great level of self respect and as a woman it is very inspiring to see this in another.

  16. Natalie Benhayon never hides from the grace and beauty she offers the world. She is equally herself with her family and friends, as with a room full of people at a presentation. She holds back naught in her way of being herself, and as such is a role model for all of us.

    1. Absolutely she does not hide her grace and beauty and shares it with everyone, it is amazing to see how completely open and inspirational she is in how she lives her life.

  17. ‘Natalie Benhayon undoubtedly inspires every man and woman she meets to be in their power, to express from their hearts and to never apologise for what they know is true for them.’ Totally undoubtedly. My appreciation for knowing Natalie Benhayon grows every time I see her. She gives people total inspiration for them to give themselves permission to be themselves! Her way of just saying no way to what’s not true or loving is so complete and easy I learn how easy it is to say no to any pressures to be otherwise – from a duty, or ideal, or belief to have to act or behave a certain way that isn’t actually true but maybe considered proper by society.

  18. When a person speaks it can be felt whether what they share comes from a living truth within their body – this is something I am learning. Everything about Natalie Benhayon, her movements, presentations, responses come from a deeply lived wisdom. Natalie is ageless and blows apart the many false ideals and belief we hold around getting older and what these years eventually offer. Natalie is bringing it all right now and reflecting to others that they too can make this choice.

  19. Every time I am with Natalie Benhayon I am deeply deeply inspired and I feel the pull to connect deeper within myself. Seeing her ooze out with such a powerful, knowing and grace and the way she moves is without question, the proof is in the pudding so they say. The Sacredness that emanates from her reminds me that I too have this same quality within, the question is how often am I choosing to connect with it and live this in every moment like Natalie is?

  20. What is age? We count the number as we go around the sun and many resist and fight the fact that the number keeps increasing. And by fighting and resisting, could we also be fighting and resisting what is being offered during this orbit?

  21. What a fantastic point, I am also inspired by my children on a daily basis, which proves that age and experience have little to do with wisdom. I often see peoples faces and judgments when I share how old Natalie is but when you meet her it is undoubtably clear that she is ageless, she is sass, fun, strength and power all wrapped into one inspiring package.

  22. Age is not a licence for wisdom – it is life choices made from the purity of ones heart, connected to their soul that determines ones wisdom or more specifically ones expression of the wisdom that lies within us all. We can be wise at any age should we choose this and choose to express it!

  23. Katinka, I too “have no trouble accepting that a woman nearly 20 years younger than me actually has access to a deeper level of wisdom than I have at this time”, she is an amazing inspiration and a role model..

  24. It is deeply inspiring to let go of all the pictures of what wisdom looks like and how we can get to that place. None of those things matter. The only thing that matters is how consistent we are with the love we have for ourselves and whether that deepens. When we choose love, everything else is being taken care of.

  25. And so it is very clear that we all have a choice in how we are with ourselves…”Not because she is more special than any other woman I know, but because of the consistency with which she lovingly holds herself, honours herself and cares for herself.” When we say no to abuse self inflicted or other, then we can hold ourselves in love. This is true empowerment, equality and living as a woman in full.

  26. You break the code of age here that we so strongly believe in that wisdom comes with age. It is simply not true and we would be wise to be open to the inner wisdom that lives within us all.

  27. I have known Natalie Benhayon for about 8 years now and I like you am older in birth years than her but am continuously inspired by what she brings, presents, the way and wisdom she lives and her true and deep love for humanity. With Natalie you can not not be inspired by her she holds everyone as her equal and always holds space for you to be more and who you truly are.

  28. Not only is knowing Natalie an education in the agelessness of true wisdom, it’s also an awesome lesson in the true nature of power. She is not dominant, aggressive, assertive, pushy or provocative. She just emanates a deep knowing – a solidness in who she is, why she’s here and the divinity she has to bring. From here all the playful, cheeky, sweetness that she is, just naturally is. She doesn’t have to try – just live. Thank you Katinka for celebrating Natalie and her inspiring way to be in life.

  29. The multidimensional living wisdom of the body is so much greater that the one-dimensional intelligence of the mind. So the only ‘qualification’ we need is a body (on this plane of life anyway!) therefore age is irrelevant.
