Inspired by Serge Benhayon to Change my Life

At 62 my life felt as though it was falling apart. This feeling of inadequacy and not knowing how to deal with life had been present throughout my entire life. As a child I felt unable to take care of myself and to feel what was truly OK for me: I could not understand why it was so difficult to love and be loved. I spent my entire life looking for love.

This pattern continued until I was forced to change at the age of 47. I began to see that I did have choices in the way I lived and experienced life and with this I began to change the way I felt about myself. I tried various self-help groups and therapies and they all appeared to work for a short time.

However, when my mother died I knew I had reached a breaking point. When I was younger, I had turned to drink as a way to ‘get me through life’ and later on I replaced the alcohol with numbing out on television and films. At this time, numbing no longer felt like an option. I needed some help and support and so I booked a session with an esoteric practitioner.

I was introduced to the ‘Gentle Breath Meditation’ and over a few weeks, as I began to open up, I knew that I needed to know more. It was suggested that I read The Way It Is by Serge Benhayon.

These two things – the meditation and reading this particular book – gave me little moments when my body calmed down from all the restless activity that continually went on in my head. This subtly but profoundly began to change my whole life. I felt more connected to myself and to the world. It felt as though I now had some command over how I was in the world – a way ‘to be’, without constantly losing who I was.

Within a year of my first session of Esoteric Healing – a gentle and non-imposing session that allows the client the space to connect to their body and let go of the busy-ness of the day – I attended Universal Medicine’s Heart Chakra 1 and 2 workshops at the Sound Foundation in Somerset. I found these workshops challenging and beautiful at the same time. I knew that what was presented by Serge Benhayon was undoubtedly ‘the truth’. I had wondered before about the meaning of life but not really looked in any depth as to whether or not I was living a life that was truth-full and true.

I was struck by the very ordinariness of Serge Benhayon. I am not sure what I expected, but probably someone who fitted into a certain stereotype. He was no superstar – he was just a normal guy but he had an extraordinary warmth and love that shone through, and a directness that was disarming. His manner was the same whomsoever he was talking with – a sense of equality that made you feel totally at ease. This man was without arrogance. He had a sense of humility and grace, and a love that was easily felt.

Through Serge’s example of family life and the way he lives his life, everything that he offered always felt possible. I could see that all we need to do is to keep life simple and to respect our truth.

Subsequently I attended Sacred Esoteric Healing (SEH) Level 1 and Level 2. During SEH Level 2 I was very aware of the profound and deep healing that was taking place. This course offered the opportunity to let go of childhood hurts and issues, and to release some of the pain held in my body. My body shape changed as my body had re-configured and the excess weight around my hips seemed to fall away.

I have been inspired to change my own life in a way that is truly amazing. I am now building different relationships with myself and with family and friends. My relationships now are based on honesty, where I lovingly reveal all those little things that I have held back on and kept hidden for so long. I was so ashamed of who I was deep down inside but now, as I open up, I realise that we are not so very different from one another – that no one is perfect and that it is OK to be me.

I have developed a new relationship with myself and have built self-respect and self-love into my life, which means I can also offer respect to others and allow them to find their own path. In this way I am able to understand and relate to everyone. It is wonderful to now experience real relationships where I do not need to be anything but myself.

Everything that I have heard Serge Benhayon say over the years has made sense.

I have an overwhelming feeling of coming home … back to the roots of where I came from in the first place. I am gradually building a foundation where love is the essence of my life and who I am.

  1. It seems to be the case for most of us, that we spend our lives looking for love outside of ourselves, and in the search we forget that love is what we are seeking, settling for so much less instead. It is life changing when we discover, feel and realise that the love we seek resides within us already. And in developing a relationship with this inner-quality, our essence, we are able to live more and more in connection to this love, offering a refection for all to behold. The light of your inner-glow, as seen in your picture here Susan, speaks volumes of your connection to love.

  2. Why living without who we are does not make sense?
    Well, because we will live with an enormous continuous unsettlement that will feel more and more uneasy as we reach further away from the truth. And so, it makes so much more sense to start living again from who we truly are.

  3. That’s pretty transformational Susan! Awesome that you haven’t thrown the towel in purely because you’re not what society would deem young. We need more role models like you that remind us that it’s worth dealing with our stuff as and when it comes up so that we can live a more enriching and purposeful life.

  4. What a turnaround Susan, your story is a beautiful testimony to the power of love and how it can transform us in a number of ways no matter what age we are – very inspiring.

  5. Being inspired through a true reflection from another impulses us to initiate true change, and understand how our current way of living is effected by all the choices we are making and what we are choosing from outside ourselves. Reconnecting to our essence through our gentle breath is the gateway to developing a true relationship with ourselves and expressing from the true quality and love we hold within us.

  6. Beautiful sharing Susan, Thank you. It is truly amazing when we live life with a foundation of love and respect for ourselves as it from this place that we embrace the world around us offering a healing reflection to all.

  7. Wow Susan, many I’m sure would want to know how to build a foundation where love is our essence. I captured a few how moments for me:
    – the ‘Gentle Breath Meditation’
    – read The Way It Is by Serge Benhayon.
    – command over how I was in the world.
    – session of Esoteric Healing.
    – keep life simple and to respect our truth.
    – relationships now are based on honesty.
    – built self-respect and self-love into my life.
    – I do not need to be anything but myself.
    And my addition is accept that I am a Son of God.
    Thank you Susan.

  8. Where there’s simplicity there’s a flow. I have held a belief that life couldn’t possibly be simple – where did that come from? The beliefs we can take on to get in the way of living a simple life can be very subtle yet very abusive to our wellbeing and the way we live.

  9. The glorious thing about everything that Serge presents is that it is forever unfolding and requiring us to take our understanding of life deeper, and surrender to all that God is. As we learn a greater sense of self acceptance and appreciation we begin to feel the possibility of being at one with God, forever confirming that we are equal with God in our essence.

  10. I have felt uncomfortable and have felt completely raw and vulnerable in some Universal Medicine courses, which one may say no thank you… but I put both hands and feet up and say yes please!! Every time I feel uncomfortable or rocked I’m seeing parts that are not truly who I am and that is an awesome thing!

  11. Thank you Susan, it may not be until we experience the Gentle Breath Meditation or a course with Serge and Universal Medicine that we realise what exactly is missing from life, because without that reconnection to self and our soul it can be undefinable. That reconnection is the foundation to reconnect in a true way to so many things, God and all other relationships, work and life in general.

  12. “All we need to do is to keep life simple and to respect our truth.” I agree with these wise words Susan, through simplicity truth presents itself with absolute clarity and guides us to initiate true change in our life enabling us to bring a quality to our whole way of being.
