Esoteric Healing Modalities – what have they got to do with the Board Room?

Over the last 13 years I have attended Universal Medicine events and workshops, and I have attended courses and trained in Esoteric Massage®, Esoteric Chakra-puncture® and Sacred Esoteric Healing®. I’ve also undertaken the required practice hours, studied anatomy and physiology and nutrition, and gained accreditation from the Esoteric Practitioners Association (EPA)* for these modalities.

This may seem quite reasonable, and it is. Except that I work as a leader, manager, and coach in the public sector in the UK running my own management consultancy company, and I am also an Associate of two UK universities. So why would I use the time and resource to study these modalities? After all, it would be very unlikely that I’d be undertaking esoteric massage at a corporate board workshop, or during a University Lecture. And for the field of work I am in, I have studied extensively including a PhD, as well as a number of vocational qualifications and two other degrees.

What I didn’t realise until I started studying with Universal Medicine was that my focus in work and in life was one dimensional; it was practical, well organised, and in my field of work I am highly regarded, but to me my work and life lacked something. It lacked balance, roundedness, and worldliness – a lived way that did not take the whole picture into consideration. This was highlighted by the fact that I was championing health and wellbeing at work, yet my own physical body was suffering from exhaustion, anxiety and a number of long-term medical conditions, to the extent that at one stage I experienced burnout.

Through studying with Universal Medicine I have become my own esoteric healing practitioner in learning to live life in a new way, discerning from my body each daily choice I make, learning to deeply care for myself in every way and understanding that I am not the one dimensional unit of life I thought I was, but that I am multidimensional. Yes I am in a physical human body, but I also have an energetic body as I am a Son of God, a spark of light, with a spirit and a soul, and there’s a universality to life. I belong to something far grander than what can be seen only by the human eye.

More so, through studying the esoteric healing modalities, not only am I taking care of myself so that I live with a deeper integrity and authenticity, I am also taking a greater responsibility for everything in life, including the way I work and run a business. This means attention to every detail: the finances, the quality of work, the quality of emails, ensuring I deliver what I commit to deliver, learning to not react to or judge others with whom I work, learning to work as a team wherever I am, and seeing all others as equal.

Studying the esoteric healing modalities has impacted greatly on the way I work; it has opened me up to the bigger picture, to being more worldly in choosing to understand what is going on around me in life, worldwide: the atrocities, the issues we face, the intensity and pressures people are under, and to understand to a far greater degree the root of societal and workplace issues.

Every time I lay my hands on another while learning during an esoteric healing course, I realise I have my hands on the pulse of humanity, and in understanding the physical body and how emotions affect us, I am offered great wisdom as regards working in any walk of life.  And you also learn from the get go an immense amount of integrity in the way you treat another, as the energetic code of practice you learn while on the courses takes responsibility to another level when dealing with others in work and in life.

I used to think I was ‘top of my game’ before I met Serge Benhayon and started studying esoteric healing modalities. Fourteen years on I am only now beginning to realise what it is to be a true leader and manager. Every single workshop and course I have attended with Universal Medicine has impacted greatly on the quality I am in life and in my work with boards, leaders, managers and all the people I work with. So whilst I may not be a practitioner in esoteric modalities, I am a practitioner of life, and attending the esoteric modality courses is pure gold. So much so, that for me personally, part of my annual CPD (continued professional development) is based on attending esoteric healing modality courses twice yearly, and ensuring I have monthly sessions with a Universal Medicine practitioner because of the worldliness and integrity they support me to bring to others in my everyday.

  1. Jane, your immense commitment to ensuring that you are taking full responsibility for your own health and wellbeing, and thus all others you come in contact with via your work life is so evident in your sharing here. I love how you have shown what is possible in supporting yourself, even with an intense level of work responsibilities.

  2. The quality of what is presented and practiced in Universal Medicine courses and workshops can be universally applied to everywhere in life. It’s not contained to a client/practitioner and a massage table setting.

  3. Every word we speak, if spoken in truth can be a healing and there is a lot of talking that occurs in boardrooms so lots of opportunity for healing.

  4. It is so true Jane that when we live life as a matter of functioning, it lacks the fullness and dimensions that we truly are as human beings, not human doings.

  5. This is awesome. It would be so easy to not bother with anything other than your job and continue to enjoy the success you have achieved. As it is, you have embraced a broader and deeper understanding of life and relationships, which you are then enriching your work life with. Very inspiring.

  6. The esoteric healing modalities, as with everything Universal Medicine presents is about life and supporting ourselves and other people to evolve. This is needed in every aspect of our lives, not just in treatment rooms. What you can develop in yourself through these healing courses is applicable in every work place, relationship, parenting etc.

  7. Universal Medicine offers us a multidimensional way of life, one that has love joy, harmony, wisdom, equality and truth at it very core.

  8. I feel that it can be very easy to get caught up in the one-dimentionality of life, which for me is mainly in making sure that all the boxes are ticked and everything is functioning appropriately. And sometimes it can seem that to bring in a multi-dimentionality to this would be burdensome or just one more thing to add to the list. But actually it’s not. Actually, whenever I bring attention to the quality of my movements whilst doing all the daily tasks of life, each one just has this kind of joy to it and a sense of purpose. Amazing the power of bringing presence to our movements.

  9. Good reminder Jane. I just like you work at a board level, and don’t give massage to my clients. At least, not yet:-) But I do bring a different way of living that should reflect the fact that we are multidimensional beings first, before we are human. I will often not speak about this, but will surely reflect the magic of this.

    1. An that’s it, isn’t it Willem – its not about what we say – or even what we do, it is the way we are, the quality we are in when we are at work that is the alchemy – the magic that can be in every walk of life and every workplace when we choose to connect to it.

  10. I have studied a lot of complementary modalities and the aim of studying them all was to be a practitioner, to add another tool to my tool belt. Studying the Esoteric Modalities has been different for I see how, even though I don’t practice as a practitioner, they have benefited my life hugely. They support me to reconnect to me and feel me more as I go through my day. I can see as a result that anyone can be a practitioner in the area that they work in because of what they are choosing to align to.

  11. When we bring multidimensionality and the Universe to work, our work places will drastically change. They will change from a place where things need to be done, into a place where things still need to be done, but where we can grow and evolve back to a way of being that we all have lived a long time before.

  12. I think it’s quite common for us to be dismissive about the way our body feels or the kind of choices that we make in how we live life until something bigger pulls us up or makes us stop and reflect on how we have been living…. But Universal Medicine shows us that there is a different way, where we can be truly empowered to be more aware of the kind of choices we’re making and how we are in effect practitioners, every one of us, always affecting our own health and many others by our way of being, regardless of our job role.

    1. Thank you Fiona, yes we are practitioners of life and with the support of the Universal Medicine courses we can deepen our livingness, that is to live from that what lives within, to which we can reconnect to through the healing living as a practitioner of life brings.

  13. That is the beautiful thing about the Esoteric Healing modalities, the wisdom they bring forth from within, can be applied to every part of life, and definitely not to be confined just to a clinic room. What I have learned, is that the Esoteric is a way of life, not something that is just performed in certain situations.

  14. ‘ Fourteen years on I am only now beginning to realise what it is to be a true leader and manager.’ Very beautifully said Jane. Remaining open to the deepening the modalities offer brings the opportunity to truly grow.

  15. The Esoteric Healing modalities ask us to be responsible for our hurts and to heal them and when we do it helps us in all parts of our life.

  16. Multi-dimensionality, something many of us do not consider although we are in it and of it, there is much more unseen than seen, we feel everything, so caring and healing all of us on all levels makes sense.

  17. What I can learn from this is that actually what we practice reflects to us the angles where we are good at and those we need to further master and pay attention to. Actually there is nothing we truly are lacking, only not giving ourselves. So, we can give back to ourselves — the love we truly deserve.

  18. The healing modalities presented by Universal Medicine benefit people from all different walks of life and different fields of work, you do not need to be a health practitioner to study these modalities, as you can see from Jane’s blog.

    1. Absolutely this has nothing to do with being a practitioner and everything to do with how we live, which in fact true medicine and also free and empowering for ourselves and others.
