Is God Real?

All through my teenage and adult life I had two burning questions: who or what is God, and what is the purpose of our existence?

Yes, I also looked for love, comfort, fulfilment and any kind of satisfaction in my worldly life, with lots of distractions and often self-destructive activities and behaviours, but I always came back to those two most important questions of God and purpose.

I felt that everything that ever happened to me, or anybody, must have some plan, logic or purpose to it, otherwise what is the point of living at all? I always knew that there must be a God/intelligence/some power that lets everything exist, but what is it, and why do we exist?

The Christian religion that I grew up with didn’t make much sense to me, so I looked at other religions, read books, listened to gurus and spiritual teachers and dipped into all sorts of alternative practices like Indian and Chinese Buddhism, new-age meditations and Reiki.

Sometimes I thought, “Ooh, I’m getting somewhere, this makes sense.” Particularly, the concept of reincarnation seemed to be an obvious part of the puzzle. I also learned a great deal about the human condition and how we function emotionally.

But no book, guru or teacher could explain to me why we are here, how it all started and what we are to do to really find God.

It had been a long journey, full of difficulties, and I was physically quite ill and weak from a life lived in dissatisfaction, often with depression, anger, frustration and the feeling that I was a victim of life happening to me. I was so angry with God for letting me suffer so much.

In spite of my outward rejection of institutionalised religion, I still had the usual Christian image of God – an all-powerful being with super-human qualities that has made us and the universe; a power that existed somewhere outside of me, separate from me.

I hoped and longed for that God to love me and help me, like an ideal father that I imagined. And like so many others, I couldn’t understand why He would allow the suffering of innocent people.

I was desperately looking for help, being physically and emotionally at the end of my tether. That’s when I met Serge Benhayon and my life changed on all levels.                    

From the presentations and books by Serge Benhayon, I started to understand the energetic truth of God, life, us, the world and the universe we live in. I am learning the living science of the Ageless Wisdom, as presented by Serge Benhayon, in my everyday life and this is an ongoing unfoldment that I enjoy tremendously.

I now know where we come from, how it all started and that I am responsible for my life and everything that happens to me. I know that God is not responsible for our suffering – it is we who just have to allow ourselves to be aware of how we and the world around us work energetically; then we have a choice which energies we let in or align to.

We can choose love, our natural, divine energy, or we can choose to align to the energy of the mind, with all the ideas and beliefs that we have picked up from the world around us.

At first, the idea that I’m responsible for everything that happens to me and all my own suffering, especially as a child, was difficult to understand and accept. But reincarnation makes total sense to me and, by accepting it as a real possibility, I opened up to feeling deeper into my responsibility (and my innermost essence), and I kept realising the truth of how it all fits together.

It feels like I knew it all along – I just needed someone to spell it out for me. To really know the truth of something requires me to feel the energy of it.

With the Esoteric Healing Modalities from Universal Medicine, I was able to not only heal and strengthen my body, but also to clear a lot of the emotional and mental structures in me. This opened my body and my mind to deeper levels of sensitivity and perception, feeling and recognising with clarity the stillness and true essence of me.

In time I could feel deeply the true love that I am inside, and in one glorious Esoteric Chakra Puncture session I felt the presence of an energy that is nothing but pure harmony, eternally holding and surrounding everything. It felt just so ‘right’ and absolute that nothing more was ever needed.

I felt this presence in every space of my body, and outside of me as far as my awareness could go, and I have no doubt that this is the presence of God.

I also felt that all I need to do is to be in alignment with that energy, that quality, and this alignment will guide me to live, be and act in harmony with everything.

I no longer feel separated from God; neither do I fear death like I used to. And although there are still emotional and mental structures in me that restrict me and need clearing, I now live with so much joy. I know that God is real – I feel it.

For me it is clear now that the purpose of life is for all of us to find our way back to God and re-unite with our Soul, our essence, because with our God-given free will we have made our existence here to be so very far removed from God that we have forgotten this true essence, our Soul – as our history, as far back as we know, demonstrates so clearly.

We can all find our way back to God by reconnecting with our inner-most heart, the deepest, most intimate place in us, where we will find our true essence, our love and our truth.

Then we can live and express from that connection and, with that, we inspire and help each other until we are all unified again, for in our inner-most heart we are all equal and divine and we all come from the same source – from God.

  1. I am sure many people feel the same, ‘I always knew that there must be a God/intelligence/some power that lets everything exist, but what is it, and why do we exist?’

  2. I had always “believed” in God, but had never had an experience that confirmed for me what his essence must feel like until I had an esoteric healing session, which felt like a deep warmth of being held in a vast endless ocean of eternity.

  3. “To really know the truth of something requires me to feel the energy of it.” This really is the answer for any question we may have in life. No amount of mental analysis or justification can come to that sense of solidarity that can be known by feeling into life.

  4. ‘It feels like I knew it all along – I just needed someone to spell it out for me. To really know the truth of something requires me to feel the energy of it.’ True Regina, it is natural for us all, when we connect with our innermost it is just there waiting for us.

  5. For me the thing that really stood in the way of understanding God based on all of what I was told he is from the Catholic and religious dogma I heard was that none, absolutely none of the teachings truly and fully made sense with regard to the current realities of human life and the challenges we currently face. It felt like we were trying to always look back to the past for what has worked and what has been taught but not making it fully relative to the present day. An example of this was hearing the teaching that Jesus taught that we are all Gods children. This felt true to me when I first heard it and still does but how does this teaching apply to life when so much of the human experience is anything but that? Enter Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine who was the first to reveal that yes we are all Sons of a God but we are choosing to not fully live the fact, and hence the purpose of human life – to return back to living who we truly are.

  6. Imagine being held in the worlds warmest hug, with no particle or piece of your body left out. Imagine being cared for so completely and fully, like a hundred parents added up. Well then of course you still have the choice to shut your eyes and mentally escape. But the truth is underneath you are loved so deep. This hug is how God is for me, and reading blogs like this Regina it’s impossible for me to continue on with my ‘everyday’ and deny.

  7. It’s a question I find impossible to answer from any logical or rational perspective without finding myself in some sort of justification. To me the question of God is a known in my body first, not a belief or a wish for it to be so. Once I know, then there are a multitude of confirmations that occur daily that confirm that knowing is absolute.

  8. For a few years I was angry and lost and turned my back on God, what a miserable time this was for me as I felt the pain of separation deeper than ever. Everything changed for me when I began attending Universal Medicine presentations and opening up again to the possibility of reconnecting back to God, it was a strong pull and a deep knowingness to make this choice and to feel how this warmed and filled my heart immensely.

  9. “I now know where we come from, how it all started and that I am responsible for my life and everything that happens to me.” It is a beautiful thing to feel how truly amazing we are and that all the time we spend searching for the answers and for God, is only taking us further away from the truth. To know that within us lies all the wisdom we could ever require by simply reconnecting to our souls heartbeat. Simply awesome thank you Regina.

  10. Regina, I also always knew there was something else. I didn’t know what that something else looked like, nor did I know where to find it but it didn’t stop me trying. I looked at yoga feeling this must have the answer as I got rather good at going to a place in my head which felt as if it may lead me somewhere but all it did was leave me disconnected. It is through modalities such as Esoteric Yoga and Esoteric Chakra Puncture that I have been able to surrender and feel without doubt the presence and support of God. From this connection I have been able to understand that God is always there it is my choice whether I live my life connected with soul or not.

  11. Thank you Regina for a beautiful sharing, I can relate to looking for God everywhere, through Christianity, new age and nature, while all the time He lived within me through my soul. By simply connecting to this most sacred part of me I can feel God’s presence in the beautiful warmth that radiates within and throughout and all around, connecting us to the all.

  12. I feel that the whole purpose in life is to allow the divinity we have within us to be expressed in whatever way it is to be expressed by us. It’s like we are all little sparkles of light that make up the one light and for the light to be shining wholly again we all need to contribute and then we will reunite.

  13. When we are living life from our heads in separation from God, we will always be in search for an answer never knowing what is truth or not. Whereas, when we get to know our bodies by the true nature of who we are and surrender to it we instantly know the expansiveness and depth of love from God.

  14. Understanding there is a purpose or grand design has made life make sense to me and allowed me to accept so much more than I used to. Although I am not perfect, I find that I generally feel purpose in a world where many people are struggling or existing. I agree that without purpose we must question ‘what is the point of it all’? It would be easy to become cynical and give up, especially when we see the state of our relationship with each other

  15. Knowing God through feeling your own divine nature in the simplicity of your body brings an unshakable relationship with God. There is nothing to believe in, no dogma to wrestle with (that just doesn’t make sense) and no looking up to or blaming God for anything. You feel your equal divinity and part to play in the universe. It is at once ordinary and extraordinary. It feels to me to be the only way to truly know God.

  16. I remember going through stages of wanting to know God, even wearing a crucifix around my neck to try and feel more connected to Him. But, it never felt right and I know it’s because I didn’t understand what I was trying to connect to. Everything I’d heard about God never made sense, but I wanted to know Him even though I felt it was un-achievable. Serge Benhayon brings total understanding to who God is and how we are in constant commune with Him through our breath, movement and being.

  17. In my 60 years of searching for God and trying to understand why we are here in this seemingly foreign place Serge Benhayon has been the only living example of Truth and his presentations always awaken a side of me that knew ‘the why’ all along but refused to take responsibility.

  18. That sense of ‘oohh I’m getting somewhere, this is real’ is so alluring. Its how all the religions and charlatans have enticed people to come to them for a time, taking a small piece of truth and then wrapping what they want around it. But they lack a wholeness, they are static, limited and at some point or another when we reach that limit, we have to go looking elsewhere. For me that stopped with Universal Medicine which is constantly unfolding its living truth that combines both the practical everyday, and the majesty of God all in one.

  19. “To really know the truth of something requires me to feel the energy of it.” Through presentations by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine I have become aware of the energy that is in and through everything and everyone and that to know the truth of God I reconnect to my inner-heart and feel the expanding joy of being at one with God.

  20. “It feels like I knew it all along – I just needed someone to spell it out for me. To really know the truth of something requires me to feel the energy of it.” – Serge Benhayon is very good at spelling things out and explaining things in a way that makes sense so that we can have a better understanding of what is happening and what is going on. In addition because of his deeply lived love, his explanations come filled with the energy that helps us to embody what he offers. Thank you Regina!

  21. ‘For me it is clear now that the purpose of life is for all of us to find our way back to God and re-unite with our Soul, our essence because with our God-given free will we have made our existence here to be so very far removed from God that we have forgotten this true essence, our Soul – as our history, as far back as we know, demonstrates so clearly.’ This is amazing to read. This resonates deeply within, the purpose of returning to God; and the truth that the reality we have created on Earth is very, very far from God and can never compare to the divinity we can return to when we let go of our investment in this material world being it.

  22. Mainstream religion has painted a picture of God that many of us reject. And quite possibly we reject it for very good reason as we feel it in our bones that it is not true. One thing I have observed is that when people are faced with something challenging in life, even if they have said all their life they don’t believe in God, they then turn to God (even if God is not the word used). So is it possible that we all believe in God all of the time, it is only that we are reacting to the false images of God we have been sold or to that divine connection we may not want to feel?

  23. Most of my life I have been looking for God, who I was told lived outside of me, but never did I find him, not until I listened to Serge’s presentations did I come to know and feel the truth that God lives within me and had been there all my life, just waiting for me to connect to.

  24. Even though we may search for the answers, in all corners of the world, in every ‘sacred’ or ‘special’ place, the truth is that we are the holders of The Great Love that is God, and so there is no where to look or seek but within, to our own inner-hearts, to our own livingness, where Divinity and Truth are themselves the sacredness we so desperately want to find.

  25. ‘Is God real’ ? Without a doubt yes. I used to have an image of God, now I know it to be a feeling – an energy of absolute pure divine love that I am constantly held and come from in every moment of every day.

  26. The Ageless Wisdom has all the answers that we have been looking for over the many eons we have been going round and round the sun. It teaches us that all the answers are inside us and not something we need to look for out there. I always knew there was God and I knew he was not responsible for the plight of humans, but rather that humans were.

  27. Regina, reading your article really helps me to understand God and how we can be with God. I can feel the truth of what you are sharing and that God is not someone outside of us but an energy we can connect with when we choose to be with our soul, when we choose to live true to who we are. Thank you for sharing with such clarity and simplicity.

  28. God is within us always. When we choose to move with purpose and the quality of our body’s connection in these movements we will feel the true alignment with soul and the inner love, that binds us all.

  29. This is beautiful Regina ‘all I need to do is to be in alignment with that energy, that quality, and this alignment will guide me to live, be and act in harmony with everything.’ How life changing it is when we begin to take the steps to reconnect back to God and choose to live this deep quality in everything we do.

  30. Knowing, and have always known but it hasn’t been so clear as it is today, that there is a purpose to life has been so confirming since becoming a student of Universal Medicine and although it is great to feel and accept this knowing it is even greater to live and embody this purpose and what it means to me in every moment… something I am deeply pondering on at the moment.

  31. This is gorgeous to read again Regina – thank you. The realness of God is unquestionable and undeniable whenever we are connected to our essence within. As then through our bodies we can live our Soulfulness naturally, and our union with God is absolute, known and felt through our movements. It is through our willingness to truly know ourselves, the love we are within, that we come to know God.

  32. Your experiences show how much evil and harm the fact of the many differing beliefs about God and Heaven have actually caused. Much to the contrary of most people’s beliefs, having such division is one sure way of leading to major illness, disease and conflict in our world.

  33. All is being shared by simply this One sentence: ‘We can all find our way back to God by reconnecting with our inner-most heart, the deepest, most intimate place in us, where we will find our true essence, our love and our truth.’
    We do not only save ourselves, but we truly help others save themselves, there is no other true way that helps man forth – only our choice (free will) to return will break the chain..

  34. Yes God is real whether we believe in him or not! It is only the images and picture of God that are unreal and block our fully knowing this magnificent being.

  35. ‘But no book, guru or teacher could explain to me why we are here, how it all started and what we are to do to really find God.’ I had exactly the same experience until I read one of the purple books of Serge Benhayon and listened to his audios, it turned my life upside down but since then I have reconnected to God who lives within me and always will no matter the choices I make, love will be there.

  36. A question that can only be answered from within, and not through any rational or intellectual analysis. To me it is part of the magic of God that once felt, it is apparent and reflected in all things everywhere and the knowing is irrefutable to the one experiencing it.

  37. For me I feel the magic of God when I go out into nature and it brings a greater clarity and feeling of something bigger than what I might be caught in at that moment in time.
