How I Changed my Life – Thanks to Serge Benhayon

Before meeting Serge Benhayon and coming across Universal Medicine my life was a mess; I had a string of abusive relationships that did not honour me as the woman I am.

I was constantly running away from life and society and had spent ten years traveling on and off, often finding myself in some really dodgy and unsafe situations. On numerous occasions I found myself sleeping rough on a beach and I actually lived in a cave where I survived on mountain water and food found growing nearby. When I did go back into society to work it was easy for me to numb myself from what I was feeling with alcohol, sugar and caffeine.

I viewed society as the enemy. I saw it as an uncaring, heartless, cold place and wanted as little part of it as I could get away with.

This all changed when I came across Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.

This was a magical turning point in my life where I was given a very honest but loving reflection on how I had been living and how there was so much more to life than the daily struggle I was finding myself in.

I was going in a ‘one way’ direction which consisted of continually repeating patterns of behaviour that were unhealthy, unhelpful, unloving and harming to both myself and others. But after meeting Serge Benhayon I changed my life completely. Through his loving reflection I realised the harm I was causing to myself and the harm I was causing to society by not being fully committed to life.

Since attending Universal Medicine presentations and receiving Esoteric healing sessions, I have learnt how to honour myself and to commit back to life.

I had been travelling on and off for ten years, flitting from job to job, house to house, relationship to relationship, but since coming to the Esoteric work and The Way of The Livingness, I realised it was time to grow up and face the maturity and responsibility I had been running away from.

I have now been in regular full time work for over four years, and in the last year I’ve been working as a manager for a successful business.

This would not have been possible if I had not listened to and taken on board what Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine have been presenting for many years now.

I realise now if I want to truly change things around me, I need to be a part of it and then in time change it from the inside… not running away or turning a blind eye, or using distractions such as travelling, sugar, alcohol or caffeine.

I had always seen humanity’s sufferings as too big to comprehend and would get lost in the overwhelming feeling that I needed to do something to help in some way. When this seemed impossible it was easy to give up and use something to distract myself.

Now I allow myself to see and feel what is happening around me in society, but no longer feel hopeless and small within this.

We often feel we are too small and insignificant to change anything and have our say, yet this is a mass illusion most of us have fallen for. We choose to be unaware of how each and every single one of us is so important and can, in effect, have a great impact on all those around us, and the world as a whole.

I am now taking responsibility and claim my part in society. I work hard, commit to life and to people and I no longer run away.

None of which would have been possible if it was not for Serge Benhayon and the truth he presents.

  1. SLE, a great learning for us all in “Now I allow myself to see and feel what is happening around me in society, but no longer feel hopeless and small within this.” showing us that we often avoid feeling and seeing everything as we feel helpless to do anything about it, however what if that was not the case? I’ve also come to appreciate, through what Universal Medicine offers, just how powerful I am and that my real power is not in control, but in allowing space for situations to unfold, for society to change.

  2. Are we turning a blind eye, or simply only seeing what we want to see and shutting everything else out? As our eyes receive images, it is our mind that reinterpreted those images and then our perception is shaped by those thoughts. With a True understanding we receive images so then the way we connect to life is different as we start to feel from our essences what is going on energetically first, then allow the image to be received and this a whole different way of looking at life with both eyes open and we cannot be fooled by images or thoughts!

    1. Then as we develop a relationship from with-in or our essences that becomes a Livingness that we deepen on a daily basis and this brings with it a Deep-Humble-Humble-Appreciative-Ness of the energetic awareness we can all re-connect to.

  3. To support the change we would like to see in humanity we must first take a look in our own back garden and see how we are contributing to the mess we now live in and don’t like. Clearing and healing our own disharmonious contribution is where the change we want to see must start.

  4. The more we allow ourselves to be aware of what is happening around us the more we will understand what is truly going on and the less will be our reactions to it.

  5. Yes it takes us all, we all need to ‘claim our part’ and take responsibility, this will bring the tide of change that is so needed. We can not push it or force it, but live it and be the love, care, and accountability that we want to see in life, these choices ebb out into life like beautiful golden ripples an change live around us.

  6. The more we truly honour ourselves the more love we then naturally have to bring to all others, it’s like it lays the foundations for all our relationships.

  7. I love the title of this blog “How I changed my life” Serge Benhayon didn’t and doesn’t change anything for us, maybe our perception of life through his teachings and presentations but the leg work to change our lives and put in the effort is our responsibility.

  8. It is astounding how different your life is! I never lived in a cave 🙃 But definitely skirted the edges of life so I didn’t have to be fully grown up and responsible, it is still a process really as this desire to get away with things to not be the same as everyone else runs strong. But I am deeply inspired by what is possible.

  9. It is beautiful how only the true truth is what makes us wake up to how we have been living and then we are able to make changes from that realisation. Even though it can be confronting, feeling how we are responsible and needed in the world is super supportive in turning things around.

  10. Learning to reconnect with ourselves and how we are feeling inside us develops a deeper relationship with our body and the love we naturally hold within and moving in a gentle and caring way develops this expression to be lived as our natural way.

  11. I found my way back to this blog because I was struck by what you said again SLE
    “I was going in a ‘one way’ direction which consisted of continually repeating patterns of behaviour that were unhealthy, unhelpful, unloving and harming to both myself and others. But after meeting Serge Benhayon I changed my life completely. Through his loving reflection I realised the harm I was causing to myself and the harm I was causing to society by not being fully committed to life.”
    I know I have been in this ‘one way direction’ of life or ‘rut’ as I call it and it is all thanks to Serge Benhayon and the courses and workshop that he presents that have supported me to also completely change my life. I always had a fear of ill mental health having suffered from it for many years which is all in the past. I live such a full and joyful life having climbed out of the self-made ‘rut’ I put myself into with as I say the complete support of Serge Benhayon and the team of Universal Medicine practitioners.

    1. Yeah I feel that fit like a bicycle stuck in the grooves not able to do anything differently that is until your willing to really look at what you want from life and if you want it to change to realise it is up to you.

  12. How I Changed my Life – Thanks to Serge Benhayon is the title of this blog and I have read many blogs and commented on them too. What has struck me is the thousands of people who have stepped forward to say what you are saying SLE …How I Changed my Life – Thanks to Serge Benhayon.
    He is the most incredible man and you would think by now with so many people whose lives he has touched that he would be big headed even pompous, as so many people tend to become, we don’t have to look too far to see them in our society. However Serge Benhayon is the most down to earth man quietly supporting those that ask for support, presenting the ageless wisdom in such a matter of fact way. I personally don’t feel we will in this lifetime or those to come really understand the truth of this man or what he brings as the representative of God on earth at this time. Just as we don’t fully understand Jesus in his time because his life has been so corrupted by institutionalised religion. So my deepest apologies to you Serge Benhayon for not fully appreciating the magnitude of who you are and what you have grounded on earth at this point in our evolution and I say this on behalf of all of humanity who seem to be unready to hear from their hearts what you have presented to them.

  13. “If I want to truly change things around me, I need to be a part of it and then in time change it from the inside” – this brings a totally different light to the society these days and how most of us are operating – namely in distraction and numbing, and I am no exception to that. It makes me wonder if the world is as it is because we are choosing not to be in it and it is missing out on us.

  14. This is a very important point to consider in terms of one of the main reasons that people care but go into sympathy or overwhelm when it comes to the giant task of supporting humanity to get back on track….”We often feel we are too small and insignificant to change anything and have our say, yet this is a mass illusion most of us have fallen for. We choose to be unaware of how each and every single one of us is so important and can, in effect, have a great impact on all those around us, and the world as a whole.” We are meant to be right where we are with the reflections we have in life, so respond and do not react and those ripples flow out into the rest of humanity.

  15. ‘I am now taking responsibility and claim my part in society.’ We can run from life and responsibility feeling we are free, for me committing to life in full and becoming more responsible has bought simplicity, love, and a deeper connection to myself and my relationships.

  16. The moment we stop and realise that we need to take responsibility for our choices, because truly there is nowhere to hide, we start to make changes and we realise that we not only have a responsibility for ourselves, we have a responsibility to show humanity that we all need to work together.

  17. Working is a great way to be part of the whole. To open our hearts to everybody we meet and together by making loving choices each day will leave new beautiful footsteps behind.

  18. If the whole world went to school with Serge Benhayon presenting, we could make incredible changes. Not yet is the world ready as a whole, but some are and that is a great start.

  19. If we want change we have to change it from the inside, as you share SLE. Accepting responsibility is a big one for us humans, as it seems so much easier to blame or withdraw. When we find the love for ourselves once again, it is so much easier to love others again, and to want to hang on in there, rather than escaping and being irresponsible.

  20. Committing to life and working hard in my work, relationships and home gives me the greatest amount of joy in my body — there is no other way but to commit to expressing in full how life feels from the body.

  21. Valuing ourselves and accepting the massive role we play within the world is a great turning point within anyone. When this is felt the web we have used to keep ourselves small start to undo and we see what great importance we are to all.

  22. I understand this feeling of overwhelm at seeing the large scale mass of human suffering and not knowing what to do or how to make a difference. I understand how this can lead to wanting to run and hide. But what Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon have presented with the reality that we are all not going anywhere but around and around in circles on this one planet that is in amongst the vaster greater whole of a universe that is constantly expanding, makes me want to get up each morning and even if my part of change in the vast sea of human misery is very small, to make the contribution – no matter how small – is truly deeply valuable.

  23. It reveals that we sometimes need a strong truthful reflection and the offering of true tools to change things in our lives. When we are stuck in a repeating cycle, and we have troubles getting out of it, it takes simply a true reflection to make a different movement (choice!). I love that, this is what Serge Benhayon constantly offers to people, more than once.

  24. I used to also see the suffering in the world and think I wasn’t able to do anything to help. But the more I ‘commit back to life’ the more I see how what an intrical part we all play. I love this expression ‘ commit back to life’ as it’s spot on. It’s a coming back to life through commitment – without which we remain half alive or it feels like a living deadness

  25. Awesome how you were inspired to look deeply at your life and fully commit to it. What struck me as I was reading this was the honesty in the way you were so clearly running away. But there’s also the more dishonest running away: making it look as though we’re really committed by doing a lot of activity- and using that as a wall to hide behind. I’m seeing and learning each day that commitment isn’t about doing more, but bringing more of ourselves, more joy and more life into each moment: fully showing up, and never giving up.

    1. I really appreciate what you’re saying here Bryony. Sometimes I look at what I do and I get caught in “should be doing more?” or “perhaps I should have said it differently”.

      I get a lot done in my day at work especially when I’m learning and obeying the rhythms of the day that support us in all our tasks. But I start second guessing myself because it was too easy, too simple and I want to take credit, get recognised for what was done and make it all about me – did that person really get what I said or did I make it look so easy, so natural that I’m not going to be praised?!

      Life could really be a breeze if I appreciate the quality of what’s able to come through me and deepen this connection to the rhythms of life. Then I’d know the truth of each situation and know when there is no need to add more because it is complete. Then they’ll be no more doing tonnes of stuff that is superfluous – which includes all the time and energy wasted on seeking recognition, on worrying, thinking about the future, planning to an unnecessary degree.

  26. When you look at something that is a gigantic mess it is hard to know where to begin, it’s great how simple you’ve made it here, change begins from within, it’s the small steps we take everyday to live a true, honest, respectful life full of integrity… we all know it only takes one person to change everything around.

  27. You are one of many stories of people whose life’s have changed for the better from the teachings of Serge Benhayon. These teaching are worthy of world sharing and beyond. Creating ripples of change with ever breath.

  28. How crazy is it that when we can’t handle the mess of the world, we pull back and add to it? I think many of us can relate to this as can we also relate to the joy to be found when we pick ourselves up and whole heartedly commit to this plane of life and living fully in it. This is the only way to bring about the change we all crave. One step at a time from the ground up. Together we will get there but we must start with ourselves so we become a point of light that reflects to all others what is possible when we live with true purpose and great love.

  29. How I changed my life? There aren’t words to describe the way my life has changed since I met Serge Benhayon. When people ask me what are you up to in your spare time, I often get puzzled because I don’t do the regular things like going for drinks/ movies/ dinners very often – but then I stop and consider that I don’t actually have spare time. My days are filled with doing things I absolutely enjoy, such as reading these blogs and leaving a comment about what each and every one of them has brought up for me.

  30. “I viewed society as the enemy. I saw it as an uncaring, heartless, cold place and wanted as little part of it as I could get away with.” I can totally understand how anyone who looks around and sees the mess that humanity is in, the cruelty, the corruption and greed, etc. would want to go into Nature to hide and get away from it all. I had a period in my life where I basically did the same thing (without the cave, though). But what I realised is that by me trying to escape a system that I felt was lost, I was actually contributing to the problem and giving up on the Love that is in all of us, and showing others that it is all a lost cause anyway by my desire to ‘get away from it all’. Only through engaging fully with life and all its responsibilities and showing how we can be in it in a way that is as loving as possible at that time, can we show another way to others.

  31. When we look at other people we often assume that their life is in so many ways different and better than our own lot, but I suspect that if we were all honest we would own up to our lives being a mess. Well mine was before Universal Medicine for sure but I would probably have justified it that it was fine, better than so many people’s lives etc, but it would not have been honest.

  32. Your change SLE might seem extreme but so many of us have been doing exactly the same thing, isolating and withdrawing just in our own way. Serge Benhayon shows us all – there is a way forward, where life makes sense. It’s so simple sometimes it’s easy to forget what life was like before we met SB.

  33. The brutal reality of how we are treating each other in this world is very challenging to accept. The abuse, the lovelessness, the complete disregard and contempt for a fellow brother was difficult to see and feel. I reacted in a big way to this also, not wanting any part of it, yet in this I now understand was also feeding this culture in which there was no real escape. When we realise that our every move has a great impact on the world we live in, we become empowered in knowing that whenever we move with love through our lives, we are bringing the change that the world is desperately in need of. Through The Way of The Livingness, as lived and presented by Serge Benhayon, I have been inspired and have also experienced how this is very possible, that life can be enriched to no end through the degree of love lived.

  34. It is quite fascinating to read the stories of so many different people, from completely different backgrounds, countries, ages, experience who all share ONE thing in common…. their life totally changed and transformed on meeting Serge Benhayon.

    1. That is one of the amazing things about attending Universal Medicine events. You meet people of all shapes, ages, genders, nationalities, demographics, walks of life – nothing on the outside to link them but on the inside all beating as one heart. I remember once attending an event and being struck by that and also noticing how at the same venue there was another group meeting who were all going rowing and how they all had similar body types, ages and appearances which makes the seemingly outer difference amongst Universal Medicine participants stand out even more.

    2. Yes the universality of living a life that is for the most part a struggle and a misery came to me as a surprise. I assumed that some people somewhere were having a great life, but so few understand what the ingredients are for a joyful life. Thank God for Universal Medicine.

      1. Not only do we as a society not know what it means to have a joyful life, we aspire to happiness instead of joy. Happy is something quite ghastly if you have experienced true joy!

      2. Love it! Happy is something quite ghastly if you have experienced joy. That is a truth you will only understand if you have experienced it. And that Unimedpedia resource is a joy in itself.

  35. The absolute beauty of Serge Benhayon’s teachings is that they are very practical, hence why people’s lives change when they applied his teachings to life.

    1. Very true Elizabeth, and the fact is these changes are undeniable through the sustained and increasing well-being and enrichment lived if one was truly open to observing. I am continually inspired by it all.

  36. Great example of how we can live from our hurts, and the unloving choices we can make for ourselves and others because of it. When we take responsibility for our part we play we allow understanding to become part of our everyday, and in this, allow love to be a consistent part of how we live life.

  37. “We choose to be unaware of how each and every single one of us is so important and can, in effect, have a great impact on all those around us, and the world as a whole.” Very true, we have a huge impact and it is only by us ignoring this fact, for whatever reason, that the world stays as it is.

  38. “I realise now if I want to truly change things around me, I need to be a part of it and then in time change it from the inside” – This is absolute gold and such truth behind this statement. Its no use blaming others and this is what I used to do much more often than now a days, when play a part in this too.

  39. “We often feel we are too small and insignificant to change anything and have our say, yet this is a mass illusion most of us have fallen for” – I couldn’t agree with you more. I used to feel insignificant and from time to time it tries to sneak in but I’m more aware when it tries to sabotage me. Every one of us no matter our status is needed to make the whole.

  40. The difference is when you meet Serge Benhayon, you don’t get the judgement about any certain behavior. You just feel so much love that you get inspired as you know this is who you are too. Then you feel (not from the mind) that for example drinking alcohol is not loving for you and you start to deepen why you take something that is so not loving for you. This then starts to shift things. A very different approach than if we judge ourselves and want to stop with something without honoring ourselves to feel that the reasons we started to numb ourselves with drink or food. Love is the most beautiful reflection on earth.

  41. We can’t change anything unless we agree to be part of it, that is so true and something I now appreciate, whereas earlier I wanted to run a million miles away from any form of commitment, and I know my own involvement with Universal Medicine has allowed me to deepen my commitment to life in a way that I’d shirked previously and now I couldn’t imagine living any other way.

  42. “if I want to truly change things around me, I need to be a part of it and then in time change it from the inside…” Beautiful appreciation of the responsibility we all carry to bring true love and Brotherhood to humanity to inspire all to choose to live in and with love.

  43. “Now I allow myself to see and feel what is happening around me in society, but no longer feel hopeless and small within this”. When we stop reacting to life because of wanting it to be a certain way a great step in our own evolution occurs. This supports not only us but also everyone we encounter.

  44. It is interesting that we can feel the truth, but because we don’t know what to do to change it we chose to avoid the situation and bury heads in the sand or turn a blind eye to it. I was like you SLE my way of coping was saying I preferred animals to humans and spent my teens and early 20’s with horses so I didn’t have to face the reality of life. It looked from the outside like I was participating in life but I wasn’t, I was doing what I thought was enough to get by. Now and again I would change the goal posts so it looked like I was making changes and until Serge Benhayon entered my life I thought I was doing a pretty good job at making my life look good, but the flaws and cracks began to appear as my coping mechanisms got exposed.
