Miranda & Natalie Benhayon – Sacredness of the Way they Move  

I first started hearing the word sacredness through attending presentations by Universal Medicine. Although my woman’s body seemed to remember this word, my logical mind was telling me that I didn’t have a clue what it meant! There was such a contrast between the distant yet clear knowing in my body and the way I was living and moving, which was largely devoid of this sacredness. Where to start when waking up a giant? This is where female role models who live this sacredness play such a significant role. Perhaps surprisingly, it isn’t in anything they say. It is the way they move. My whole-body seems to drink in what I see and I feel and in an instant, I know the sacredness within a woman.

There are many women who have inspired me over the years. One of these amazing role models is Miranda Benhayon. What I have observed in Miranda’s movements may seem simple or even mundane, yet the effect of the beauty and divinity in her movements is quite profound.

One memorable example of this was when I realised that I had never seen or heard anyone swipe a credit card the way that she did. Normally when I am at the shops and my card is swiped, there is a rush and harshness to the movement, and the sound feels like nails on a chalk board! Whereas when Miranda does this same movement, there is no rush; there is absolute presence and purpose. Instead of harshness, there is a sound that is in harmony with every cell in my body and the whole of the Universe. It is like music to my ears and it leaves me feeling deeply at ease.

I am also very inspired when Miranda is on stage singing or presenting. Her voice is so rich, steady and deep. However, it is what I see in her movements that keeps me spellbound. There is such a grace and elegance to the way she holds herself on stage, whether poised on a seat or standing, that reminds me of a true way of being. One of the things I love the most about seeing Miranda Benhayon on stage is the way she holds the microphone.

There is such a delicateness and femininity to the way each of her fingers is deliberately placed. There is not an ounce of gripping, hardness or tension in her hand or arm. The harmony and perfection of the angles that her fingers and wrist create, instantly creates space within me and I experience a sigh of surrender throughout my body. The divinity that I know inside me is there before my eyes – I am observing heaven on earth.

The other woman who has been a significant role model in my life, and for thousands of other women, is Natalie Benhayon. She consistently reflects sacredness as a woman in every movement and gesture, without an ounce of apology or holding back. Natalie Benhayon is pure sacredness – proof that it can and needs to be lived in every moment, by every woman. If you want to experience the joy of observing Natalie, I would recommend visiting Esoteric Women’s Health (one of the many amazing women’s projects she has initiated) and watching the video “So Lovely”.

From the steady groundedness of each step, to the delicateness of the touch of her fingers, you can feel she is completely with her body and honouring the sacredness that is within her. There is nothing that can lure, distract or tantalise her away from the preciousness and magnificence of what she feels.

Natalie has one particular movement, which although seemingly very simple, touches me deeply and has a profound effect on my body – and that is the way she closes and opens her eyes. Normally I would call this blinking, but it seems like an insult to use such a short, sharp word to describe a movement that holds such a timeless beauty and sacredness. If you consider it, how often have you been stopped in your tracks or even noticed this movement in another person? Never or rarely? Instead of the rushed, abrupt or functional way that most of us close our eyes, Natalie takes her time. In fact, this is what I love the most and it is delicious to feel. It is like time itself stops. And if you feel the depth of sacredness within you, why would you rush or dishonour that feeling?

Although the way that Miranda Benhayon and Natalie Benhayon express sacredness is different, their movements carry the same message.

There is absolute dedication to keep feeling and appreciating the depth within themselves and move in a way that reflects heaven. This allows us to see and feel unfathomable beauty, stillness and grace. With this firm commitment to sacredness, they refuse to be moved by anything life or society tells women they need to be. Observing and appreciating these amazing role models over many years, I now know how natural and powerful sacredness is, and that it can be expressed in every movement.

  1. Since reading this blog and particularly this line, “there is not an ounce of gripping, hardness or tension in her hand or arm.”, I have been catching myself when I can feel that I am gripping something. It is a beaut awareness to have as I lessen my grip, and the hardness and tension falls away. Thank you.

  2. I love the way we can all have our own expression that is unique but it comes from the same quality of sacredness within us all. We can observe the different way Natalie and Miranda move but the emanation of their beauty is one and the same.

  3. Just a look at these photos again deeply inspire me to refine my movements more and to trust that Grace in my movements is the key.

  4. The power and grace of Natalie and Miranda Benhayon is awesomely inspiring, as it is a reflection of everything we all have within us, all of the time.

  5. Two woman who claim their bodies and their space for divine purpose, in a real relatable lived way, nothing contrived, there is inspiration in how they live and move for sure.

  6. Fiona, how Natalie and Miranda Benhayon move is deeply inspiring, rarely do we get to see such beauty and true movements. It is a blessing being able to observe and feel the quality with which these women live; ‘There is absolute dedication to keep feeling and appreciating the depth within themselves and move in a way that reflects heaven. This allows us to see and feel unfathomable beauty, stillness and grace’.

  7. Movement in presence and purpose are indeed riveting and inspiring to watch, revealing how we can feel everything in life.

  8. “Natalie takes her time. In fact, this is what I love the most and it is delicious to feel.” Both Miranda and Natalie take their time. I notice in the UK that Simone Benhayon does this too. The phenomenal amount of things these women accomplish each day, yet there is no rush and when they are with you time stops. A beautiful appreciation Fiona- thankyou.

    1. I have felt the same thing to Sue, when in the company of Natalie, Miranda and Simone that time stops, or at least it stretches. Being with someone who is not in a rush, who lives with that expanded space can be acutely felt and is deeply inspirational.

  9. This is a beautiful expression of the truth of two wonderful women. I have observed many of the same sacred movements that you have shared with us and they are beautiful to behold. Thank you for putting this beauty into words Fiona!

  10. Having Natalie, Simone and Miranda Benhayon as role models of how true women move and express their sacredness, is not only deeply inspiring but also a blessing to all women. It is a deep, deep honour knowing these gorgeous women.

  11. ‘My whole-body seems to drink in what I see and I feel and in an instant, I know the sacredness within a woman.’ It’s so gorgeous to feel a woman in her sacredness and be inspired because I get to feel it within me too and how no amount of my usual rushing or getting things done is ever worth compromising on this divinely held quality.

  12. “..Although my woman’s body seemed to remember this word, my logical mind was telling me that I didn’t have a clue what it meant! …” This is a clear example of how at times we simply ‘just know’… This knowing comes from the body that knows, where the head / mind seeks to own the knowledge.

  13. I love your practical example of Miranda swiping a credit card – it shows how being in harmony with the ways of the universe and how that is felt and known to us when we see it in another.

  14. I have also noticed those surrendered Beautiful eyelids open and close, an amazing movement to observe in another woman. To be inspired by other women lights us up.

  15. I remember being brought to such a sense of stillness watching Miranda Benhayon and how she moved on stage, she stayed in her own rhythm no matter what those around her did … it was pure grace and touched me deeply. With Natalie I too have noticed the eyelids and in fact loved when she presented in a Sacred Movement class to surrender your eyelids, it really allowed me to feel this movement on a whole other level. I can now say I do know what sacredness is, I’ve seen it and I’ve felt it in me in moments too.

  16. To observe the fluidity and grace in which they both move is very inspiring, I have started to be more aware of my own body, and where I still hold a tightness in my movement. Miranda and Natalie Benhayon offer us so much just by reflection.

  17. It may not be the grace and beauty reflected by sacredness but much more the power, authority and absoluteness that send a shock through the ‘system’, shaking the state of settlement of being less, accepting less and treating oneself and others as less than THAT.
