I have been a Student of Universal Medicine for nearly ten years and with the support of the presentations of Serge Benhayon, The Ageless Wisdom and the whole student body, I have discarded many of the ideals and beliefs that had me living a lie that kept me from who I truly am, and in-truth where I am truly from.
Today, in my body, I live something that I could not have imagined ten years ago – as it was nowhere within my then conscious awareness. So how does someone who did not have this understanding, this potential in her conscious awareness become to not only have it in her awareness but to become someone who lives it with an authority? …My only answer is Reflection – reflection of movement.
By reflection I mean what I tangibly saw and felt from others – in the way they moved, how they walked, in the way they spoke, in the quality they held their body in, the way their clothes were assembled with care on their body, how tender their touch was, how engaging their eyes were, how light they seemed to be in their discussions, how much care they took with themselves and with others, in the way they related to others and with me – was something that felt a very true way of being, yet something I had not witnessed in my life before attending my first Universal Medicine presentation by Serge Benhayon. I was able to feel the holding power of this reflection that I was witnessing. I felt it from them and I actually felt different within my body when I was around these true reflections. Reflection was the only thing that started to break down the consciousness that I was holding and supported me to see/feel the hardness I was carrying.
Initially, witnessing the many reflections from Serge Benhayon, the whole Benhayon family, Esoteric Practitioners and the Universal Medicine student body, allowed me to feel that there was more, and that what I was living in my body at that time was not the truth of who I was and am. Over the years these reflections have continued to inspire me and also expose little pockets that do not belong with the grandness of who I am. The power of reflection is that it is a tangible living proof, which for me spoke to every particle in my body saying – this is also who you truly are.
Today I now live this reflection – I live me. And I know that through the way I am with the quality of my movements, that I too provide and inspire others to remember the light they are from, just as I was once inspired. Through others I got to see there was something deeper, precious and beholding which was very natural that I was not living and connecting to. The reflections I received from Serge reminded me of this and started me on my journey to reconnect to the grandness within. This journey has been amazing – not always smelling of roses and at times it was very uncomfortable to feel what I had been choosing for myself, but a journey I would not trade for anything. The rejoining to the love of my Soul is my sole purpose in this life – in truth the purpose of every incarnation, and nothing feels as joy-full.
I fully appreciate the reflection of all the movements that Serge Benhayon, the Esoteric Practitioners and the whole student body offer. Over the years, in reclaiming myself as a walking living Son of God, rebuilding my body to be one that my Soul can have full access to express the love and truth of who we truly are, I have come to have a strong understanding of how important our movements are and just what it is they are reflecting.
Our movements have the power to reflect our multidimensionality and the grand intelligence we are all from.
I have supported myself to feel my body more deeply, deepen the presence in my movements, know the delicateness and tenderness of me and appreciate the amazing qualities I bring to life. Through the modalities offered by other students of Universal Medicine I have been able to deepen my connection to myself and my movements. No matter if I participated in a sequence of sessions or just a one-off here or there, every session offered me another key, a learning, a new marker that only that practitioner was able to provide at that point in time. This is why I am forever humbled and grateful for the unique ‘qualities’ that every human being is designed to bring in life, including the following practitioners:
- With Victoria Warburton, Marcia Owen, Marika Cominos and Vicky Geary in Esoteric Yoga sessions, I learnt to move with presence in my body, to trust myself and know the power I bring through the surrender of my movements.
- With Beverly Carter in It’s Time to Shine in True Movement sessions, I learnt to be playful with this presence and let it emanate through surrendered movement, strengthening and stretching exercises.
- With Stephen Gammack in SoulFit, I learnt how to keep it simple, listen to the body and be gentle as I went through each exercise sequence.
- With Danielle Pirera in Harmony in Movement, I learnt to focus on particular areas of my body during a movement, letting myself feel all that was there and what was happening as I slowed each movement down.
- With Kate Greenaway from Universal Medicine with support of Body Awareness and Connective Tissue Exercises, I learnt how to deepen my body awareness with the simplest of movements and how much of my body I could actually allow myself to feel. How lovely it is to feel the flow and fluidity feeling that results from that level of connection.
- With Karin Becker in Sacred Movement, I have learnt to feel my connection to my body and my sacredness and moving with this connection during the healing movements.
The reflections of each practitioner and my participation in their programs have supported me in unfolding, surrendering, letting go of entrenched patterns, rebuilding, re-imprinting and deeper connection with all sorts of ‘true’ movements, I now bring a truer way of being to my everyday life – in the way I walk, do chores, the way I exercise, the way I prepare things, the way I clean, the way I drive – every facet of my day. And this all supports my body, which then supports the way I am with all those I relate to and everything I do in this world to also hold the same amazing quality. And so the ripple of Reflection continues…
