Appreciating Esoteric Practitioners – I move with ME!

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 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 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…

  1. ‘ 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.’ This is so true and I love this article for reminding me of what I behold when I see those who express divinity in their every move.

  2. The power of reflection is huge because we can see in others what we know is true within us. This is a living confirmation and an invitation to always be who we are, supported by the fact that it is not only possible, but a blessing for all to fully be ourselves.

  3. It’s amazing how much we pick up from just seeing and observing other people – the way we move, the way we feel, the light in our eyes; we are all role models for each other…

  4. We can all feel there is something about those who are in their body, there is something that communicates their ease, their surrender, their confidence, their steadiness in their movement. They reflect and remind me the simple way back to connection.

  5. Observing others in the love and quality of their movements would serve us all to take notice of and then apply to our own lives. When we understand how important our movement is to the quality of energy we put out, we get to feel how restricted we have been living within our bodies and then imposing that onto others by way of a reflection.

  6. It is a beautiful thing to appreciate the inspirational movements of another person, because this opens up the door to the possibilities of what you may bring as an inspiration to us all.

  7. When I am being presented with a reflection that is of a greater connection to God than I then I have two options with which I can respond. The first option is that I can choose to be in awe and inspired by the other person or the other option is that I can choose resistance and feel very uncomfortable. Surrendering and being inspired allows for evolution; resisting holds me back from seeing and feeling what it is that I am to see and feel in that moment and therefore keeps me in the comfort of staying where I am on the path of my unfolding.

  8. We can’t escape reflections. They are happening every minute of the day. But we can ignore them if we want, or we can see them for all they are offering and learn and be inspired by them. They are what I feel to be far more educational than anything we learn in our current schooling system. They teach us about who we are and how we are with ourselves.

  9. “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.” A beautiful post Johanna. I too have and am changing as I receive beautiful reflections from some amazing esoteric healing practitioners as they move and go about their day. And we too are reflections for everyone we meet. The question is do we choose that to be healing or harming? It is our everyday livingness that supports either choice.

  10. Reflection is the law of the land. Yet, reflection is much more than the eyes can see. It is what our body feels is really going on. If everybody attacks him/herself under the alibi of life is hard, this is what we do even if we may not be aware of what we are doing. But, if we see someone holding deeply him/herself, on a consistent basis, we incorporate this as a possibility and starts working towards it. It only takes one to change what we feel it is possible via reflection.

  11. A great reminder to appreciate the enormous amount of true support, lived expertise and beautiful reflection that surrounds us, all from people have chosen for themselves to do the work and return to a loving and responsible way of life.

  12. Beautiful piece of appreciation Johanna. We are offered incredible reflections so show us that we are also great reflections to many.

  13. The reflection of others is the start of change if someone chooses so. Even if someone doesn’t change his life at that moment the option is planted and you never know what and when the follow-up will come.

  14. I love your observation about others: ‘how light they seemed to be in their discussions’. When things aren’t so focussed anymore on being right and more on working together this brings a completely different quality to a group.

  15. ‘Our movements have the power to reflect our multidimensionality and the grand intelligence we are all from.’ It is literally all about movements, the power and the consequences of our movements is something that could be investigated much closer. They make way for more love for new opportunities or for staying stuck in the same (often loveless behaviors and thoughts).

  16. Without reflection I know I would not have become aware of how hard I was being with my body, and even while I may have been aware of it I would not have known there was another way. This is how we are inspired and inspire each other, just by how we are and how we move.
