I have met the Benhayons once, on my first Universal Medicine Livingness workshop, in June 2016. My memories from this initial introduction go as far as the-never-experienced-before most delicate feel of Miranda Benhayon’s hands, and the undoubtable warmth and openness of Serge Benhayon.
During this course I didn’t get any huge revelations, no eureka moments from the ‘skies’ telling me “this is it, you’ve found truth!” No, nothing revelatory here, just another seminar to expand on some knowledge.
And yet, for the first time in years I could walk into a very large room full of people and not compare myself to just about every single other woman in there, not feel self-conscious about my size, or for the first time since I can remember, listen to somebody present for longer than a minute without completely blanking out and going into a daydream. Pretty cool eh? And for me – revolutionary.
I was first introduced to Universal Medicine by my boyfriend and then his mother. Two incredible people who have supported my growth like nobody else, with deep honesty, love, and appreciation for me and all that I bring. Two people who don’t hold back when it is time to tell me that I need to pull my act together, or who deeply care for me in my most vulnerable state. The same two people who responded to my poisonous jealousy of their relationship with “okay, let’s talk about it” and “you need to deal with this” without ANY judgement, resentment, or dismissal, just understanding.
Since my introduction to Universal Medicine, whilst researching the organisation I came across dozens of articles, videos, websites etc. accusing Universal Medicine of being a cult; even people in my life who I believed to have had the most solid relationship with, flipped 180 degrees and began to oppose everything that was unfolding before them and the remarkable self-loving choices I was bringing into MY life. I was accused of being brainwashed, gullible, a follower.
But my question is, how can I be brainwashed if in every presentation by Serge, in his books, each article I read, and conversations I have with those who study with Universal Medicine, I have found that these people I am meeting think like me, that we have the same views on life and our understandings built on the same or similar awareness? How is this a cult? By this logic, pretty much every celebrity fan and sport club also has to be called a cult.
My experience is that people, especially those close to us, start to respond and often react in different ways when we introduce changes into our lives, especially when the changes no longer align with their way of living. Yet to me, the more intimately I started to get to know myself the more it all felt like everything I had learnt and lived up to that point had been a massive bubble of lies that was now bursting in front of my eyes. The convenient relationships and the die-hard habits of life were starting to crumble down; the beautiful smile I had mastered to perfection in order to keep the ‘always positive’ and ‘happy’, ‘good girl’ mask was starting to wear out.
Reality was beginning to kick in and I was no longer choosing to avoid it. My thirst for truth, meaningful relationships and deep connections paved my path to the home of this family where I was presented with an opportunity to further explore and connect deeper with everything I had already known was inside of me, but did not have the confidence or the self-worth to express to my friends, family, or anyone around me.
With the support of this family, Universal Medicine Practitioners, and the Universal Medicine student body I am able to stand here today as a young woman and embrace the fact that I do feel, always have, and always will feel Truth.
All of these people have been inspired by the fiery love of Serge Benhayon and without even knowing me, Serge and the Benhayon family have brought truth, love, and honesty into my life too, that they so unreservedly and selflessly bring into the lives of countless others. If this isn’t proof of the fact that we are all equal and that every one of us can bring out the great in others, I don’t know what is.
How amazing the ripple effect of the Benhayons!

What the Benhayon family bless the world with is powerful more than we can imagine. What an inspiration the Benhayons are, their commitment and love of humanity is beyond beyond.
Surely at the end of the day that is what we all seek and deserve, ‘it’s a loving way of life honouring ourselves and others’.
It is Magic to feel that the Love that has been shared opens the door for us all equally to live this same level of Love as it ripples out to us all through those who re-align to their Essence, Inner-most, Esoteric or Soul. (As these are all one and the same!)
We don’t want anyone to rock the boat of our comfortable life by pointing out that we are stuck in a rut of our own making, going round and round in ever deepening circles on a planet that we are not supposed to be on. And so you get called a guru, pedophile, murderer anything really just to shut you up from exposing the rot we are all living in, and offering a way out of.
Absoulutely Mary, maybe the boat needs to be tipped over so we have to sink or swim by the way we live?
How bad does it have to get on this planet before we say enough is enough.
The thing about inspiration, is that it can only happen if you are open to it.
I appreciate your honesty in sharing about your jealousy – it takes courage to do that because it can be a big ouch covering many hurts.
I never met more plain common sense than with what is presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine and on top there is the proof in the pudding when meeting those who truly live it and not just regurgitate the words and knowledge, ie. the Benhayon family and others who have chosen to be authentic (not perfect) in regard to living truth are the inspiration that keeps me going to live what I know to be love, truth, realness, brotherhood…, everything that makes perfect sense to everyone as it is of the same source we are all coming from.
Thank you Alexander, it’s a beautiful comment and just the words I needed to read today.
It is very special how one can walk into a large room with hundreds of people at a Universal Medicine event and all feel as one regardless of shape, age, size, gender, job, or previous experience – pure magic and yet why is it not like that everywhere?!
Knowing and loving yourself more. Sounds pretty cool to me. How can that be labelled as a cult? It currently seems that labels are all to easily given out by people and calling the students of Universal Medicine is another one of them. So does that mean that every student of every university or college is also in a cult? Where is the logic and common sense in this.
Vicky that’s a great observation
” So does that mean that every student of every university or college is also in a cult? ”
As you say Where is the logic and common sense in this.
And the ripple effect keeps going. We are all ripple-affecting everyone around us. And sometimes, no exchange of words is needed. We reflect what we live, whatever that is. Words can be used to manipulate but we know what is true.
Love actually being lived is something most people have never seen. It sounds arrogant, but I know this to be true, because most people are motivated by emotional versions of love that are heavily influenced by what is sold to us in movies and advertising, stories etc., so to actually see and experience true love it stands out.
To walk into a room and not go into comparison or insecurity as a woman is astounding. It’s not until you get to feel the absence of a force like comparison that you actually appreciate how big this difference is. The ripple effect of this is that you are awakened to the harmony that is possible between people, and this can be felt as a possibility for others too.
Yes, there is a tremendous solidness and steadiness that can come from knowing what we bring to the world and how each person’s unique expression is needed and vital to the whole.
Knowing our own value, that we all bring something unique to the all, that we are all very much needed in one way or another deepens our purpose and joie de vivre.
It is true people don’t like change especially if it does not align to what is accepted as the way most of society lives. The crazy thing is that the way that the Benhayon family live, offers us the answers to most of the issues that we have in life, yet we prefer to keep our heads in the sand because we don’t want our comfortable boat to be rocked.
We are a crazy lot of people, and we are meant to be intelligent…’the way that the Benhayon family live, offers us the answers to most of the issues that we have in life, yet we prefer to keep our heads in the sand because we don’t want our comfortable boat to be rocked.’
How amazing the ripple effect of anyone living in connection to thier soul. It’s what will change the world as we know it.
When you have felt Truth and Love with capitol letters there is no pulling the wool over your eyes any more.
The entire Benhayon family reflects the fact that we can live with love and truth and this has a huge effect on everyone who encounters them because it reminds us of something that we already know but may not be living in full.
It sure does. They have shown us and show us how we all can be with each other. I have never felt excluded from their family in any way and never felt them to be above me or anyone, rather the opposite. It is amazing how welcomed I have been.
Living Truth and Love is what is needed in a world full of lies and corruption.
The ripple effect flowing through Serge Benhayon presenting the Ageless Wisdom is felt in all corners of our world.
It sure is Mary, just like a butterfly flaps its wings the ripples are felt the other side of the world.
Which is partly why there are students of the Ageless Wisdom living in all corners of our world.
Inspired by truth and a living quality, this is what is seen and appreciated from the Benhayon family. How can this be called a cult when there is free will to live with love?
The ripple effect we can have on one another is far greater than I think we can even comprehend; the quality we bring to life and all our relationships can truly make a significant difference.
Exactly, how crazy is it to doubt the truth when its presented? What on earth have we created such ill mind to respond like that? For our greatest intelligence is love.
Yes, it is like we have dug a hole for ourselves, put ourselves in it and then whenever anyone comes to point out the fact that we don’t need to be in the hole we shout at them for trying to lead us astray. Clearly we just need to be left in the hole for as long as we choose to be there – or not.
When people close to you react when you are becoming more self-loving and taking care of yourself, it exposes the false love we have all settled for in our relationships. This form of love comes from need, security and control is an agreement between friends, colleagues, partners and families. There is a backlash when one party steps away from the original contract.
Fiona there can be a backlash as you say, there are also those who say I can see the level of care you have for yourself and it is amazing. I do not have that level of care myself and I’m fine with that. Then there are those who see the changes that have been made and decide that they want to make the changes too, then feel the benefit of the changes. Sometimes, it needs someone to step away from what we have come to accept as life, in order for the rest of us to see and feel the rot we have been living in.
It is a sad fact that people react to someone saying no to abuse and yes to more self love and self care.
Such a wonderful dose of appreciation I feel in your blog, it inspires me to appreciate those that have and are supporting me in my journey back to soul and to re fresh my appreciation for the Benhayon family that is growing in numbers and quality all the time.
I am inspired by your commitment to keep shedding all the lies that you and we all have grown up with. I could imagine there were several points such as having to deal with jealousy, where most would start to defend or deny and refuse to grow. This is what Universal Medicine offers us all, the opportunity to become more aware and question what is true or not and make adjustments in our life based on the answers.
If I and other Universal Medicine Students do not conform to many of the common activities of society such as getting drunk, taking drugs, drinking coffee, being regularly sick, having dysfunctional relationship make me a member of a cult of healthy living, free and independent thought, living a far more harmonious and joyful life than I ever did before, then I am proud of it.
I’m with you there jstewart51. I have had a belly full of being drunk, or being in dysfunctional relationships from a need of wanting the other person to love me because I’m incapable of loving myself. I too live far more harmoniously than at any time in my life with the knowing that this is just the beginning that there is so much more to be. How amazing is it at the age of 64, I feel my life is just beginning when most people are counting down the days to when they can retire.
YES – ripple effect they bring! What I have learned is that you, you, are an essence and that the more we connect to that essence, the warmer and more all-encompassing the ripple effects are..
All of us were raised and socialized in a peculiar way and under a specific view of the world: us and others. We all learned that to be loved by others, you had among other things, to share the basics of what you have been given. That is why it is so hard for them when you realize that part of what you were given, you discover that is not true and you start changing your life to create more space for truth to flourish. The irony is that truth is never against anyone and is to the benefit of everyone equally. The critical issue is how to handle these situations well. It has to be done from love. Otherwise, it will create a pretty difficult situation for everybody.
You share so clearly why so many are reactive to Universal Medicine because it brings up this town’s choices. It seems we would rather live in reaction than even consider living with truth. I speak from experience! It’s quite extraordinary how much I have been willing to resist simple facts.
This is an awesome testament to ‘The Way of The Livingness’ and the Browns. When we are offered a true way of living with deep care and love the truth that we have always known within ignites and starts to burn again.
You wouldn’t be able to count or see all the ripple effects that are being made with the absoluteness of the Benhayon family. I have been fortunate enough to experience it first hand with them, but how that then is carried through and passed onto everyone in my life is extraordinary. You can only really connect with it by feeling the impact that this has had, but in saying that, many people I am in connection with have experienced points in their life where they see that there is another way of living. The Way of The Livingness.
Their ripple effect is huge because each person they inspire then has a ripple effect of their own. I just know now that the ripple effect can come from 2 sources, so our movements will choose the quality of ripple effect we have.
It is very inspiring to watch others live the truth of who they are, you can’t but want to do it yourself.
And there are so many more people in the world who have been touched by those within the student body as those who choose this way of living reflect something different to the world around them just as the Benhayon’s do.
So many people’s lives have been changed for the better because of the Benhayon family. They are living examples of how to live love on earth.
If everyone is 6 x removed from each other the impact of us all living with more love for ourselves is going to have a huge impact – imagine if we actually lived the love and responsibility that the Benhayon’s do – it would be quite remarkable.
Me too, or should I say me three! Their inspiration reminds me to simply enjoy and embrace being myself and to get to work!!!
When the real reality kicks in and we start to honour our natural thirst for truth, and meaningful relationships, our soul is there always to guide the way, ensuring we meet the right people at the right time. If its a true call – its always delivered.
When we start living true to ourselves, everything changes, and yes our old baggage can start popping up, which is great because then it clears from our bodies, giving us more space to feel what works and what dosen’t as we continually refine our choices.
Just as the stars illuminate the night sky, so too does our living way inspire others to also live what they know to be true.
‘My experience is that people, especially those close to us, start to respond and often react in different ways when we introduce changes into our lives, especially when the changes no longer align with their way of living.’ I have found instances like this too, but the beautiful thing is that whilst those that loved me had initial concerns and reactions, they have over time seen such inordinate positive changes within me, that they no longer have any adversity towards Universal Medicine. They have openly said that it is not for them, but are in full support of my choices and my attendance of Universal Medicine workshops and presentations.
How amazing for us all that Serge Benhayon woke up to who he truly was, went about living it and now so many people are inspired to do the same.
A beautiful reflection of how the ripple effects of love impact greatly on the lives we live and offer inspiration through all our relationships. And this is something we all hold the responsibility and power to live, to reflect the love that we all are in essence. If we can feel the power of what one can live as with Serge Benhayon, then this highlights the power that is truly possible for us all to live.
That same ripple effect is now being reflected from you.
So, true, Mary! The beauty of how ripples work! I also see the Benhayon family like the initial torch bearers. They ignite the first light and inspire others to ignite their own… then as each one lights up, more and more are inspired to do the same.
Yes, by inspiration not by force, fear or bullying. It is a way of living that speaks for itself.
The Benhayon family definitely change lives. When you meet any one of them, you cannot but feel the love and truth they hold, and the equalness they hold everyone in, and when they meet you, you are inspired to do the same, and the cycle continues with each person who is inspired by love, truth and equalness.
I personally feel that Serge Benhayon offers a reality check for everyone, it then becomes a choice whether you agree with what he presents or not. He doesn’t have any investment in the outcome. There are many people living today who are dissatisfied with our current way of living and thousands of people when they hear what Serge Benhayon presents say “that makes sense to me”, because it just does make complete sense, there is no other way to describe it. And the relief one feels in the body is tangible.
Yes.. we may not like what is presented at first because it goes against everything we have been brought up to know is true- but that on closer inspection, is not true at all- just a lot of pictures and rules about ‘how life is’, handed down through the generations. What Serge and his family present is that there are no rules, just a very natural way to live that comes from within us, and learning to listen to that connection. No following or copying anything from the outside, just an attunement and and alignment to what we already, always feel and know within us, but have perhaps forgotten about.
The ripple effect is beyond what we can even comprehend is my sense. Every life changed course has a ripple effect – it is profound.
The other day I had a young man criticise the way I live and the choices I make, but what this brought home to me was that there was no need for justification or defending because I have many years of lived truth, and without a shadow of doubt I know where I have come from to where I am today.
When we have that solid foundation of lived truth Julie, there is not much that can rock our boats, as we have so much more understanding of ourselves and then others, there is no need to defend or react and even that is a solid reflection.
The ripple affect is enormous and is very evident in the many hundreds of life changing stories from students, clients and families who have been inspired by the Benhayon’s and Universal Medicine.
It is the degree of Livingness reflected by the Benhayon family that is leading us all out of the ditch we have fallen into. We can ‘know’ or ‘know about’ many things, many consciousnesses, many hurts, many reactions, but unless we live vibrationally our knowing then it remains as ‘knowledge’ – making us think we have got somewhere. The Benhayons bring that vibrational being to us in life and it is this which truly shifts the bonds of our imprisonment.
