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. ‘Although the way that Miranda Benhayon and Natalie Benhayon express sacredness is different, their movements carry the same message.’ I agree Fiona. A point I would like to add is, if we only look at the physicality of how we do things and leave it at that, then it is easy to go into comparison but when we read the energy behind our movements then we receive a deeper understanding of the quality of our movements.

  2. “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 presents this and consistently so, allowing all women who get to meet her or see her or be around her to feel this same potential in themselves.

  3. There is so much in the way that we move as women – we can be rushed and hardened and so not in flow with our natural grace and beauty, and so often I can catch myself in this… And yet with the amazing reflections and reminders from women such as Natalie and Miranda, I can then find myself experimenting with moving in a different way…allowing more of this innate beauty to come out and express itself, the natural grace, and beauty and delicateness but expressed in such a powerful way. Where would we be as women without true role models such as these two amazing women?!

  4. Beautifully expressed Fiona, to see and feel unfathomable beauty, stillness and grace is both confirming and inspiring

  5. Education by way of the reflection of Natalie Benhayon and Miranda Benhayon – the most awesome inspirational learning!

  6. I too have noticed how Miranda holds the microphone when on stage it is like it is being tenderly caressed by her fingers. I too have seen the gorgeous movement of Natalie’s eye lids. We are so blessed as women to have these two amazingly beautiful women reflect to us the true meaning of sacredness in their every movement. “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. “

    1. Love your comments here Jill about the delicateness of the touch and the quality in the movement of the eyelids….So mesmerising and so powerful and yet so simple in its action and delivery.

  7. I think we pick up a lot from each other’s reflections – seeing/ hearing/ sensing the way in which someone is doing something, or the way they are expressing themselves. Not out of judgement but picking up on and observing the energy behind the movement.

  8. I am touched by your description of Miranda Benhayon swiping the credit card. And what is so beautiful, is how you have made it so clear and so simple that this is available for every woman, to move in this way, showing that there is no exclusivity to sacredness, to womanhood, to movement.

  9. I cannot speak sacredness, it has to be a lived movement in connection to my soul and hence the soul of the universe. If sacredness is not lived in my body, then how can it be something to be inspired by? The way in which I choose to be and live with myself lovingly, is and means Everything and it is this way, The Way of the Livingness that truly inspires.

  10. “There is absolute dedication to keep feeling and appreciating the depth within themselves and move in a way that reflects heaven.” I agree Fiona, both Natalie and Miranda, both glowing points of inspiration and much offered to us through this single sentence.

  11. Thank you Fiona for your reflections of sacredness lived in the everyday, by Miranda and Natalie Benhayon. We often get caught up in words, making them more complicated or unobtainable than they are. You confirm the simplicity and grace of sacredness in every movement made.

  12. Seeing and having interaction with Natalie and Miranda Benhayon brings one to the awareness of the fact that there is something so dear and precious – Sacred – within. One, that this quality is there as a reservoir for you to develop a relationship with and two, that this is quality, this expression of Sacredness is not something to turn on and off, and three, it is there also to be in full expression for others to remember this is equally within them too. Sacredness completely dismantles comparison, competition, ‘better than’ or ‘less than’ human behaviour learned traits

  13. Watching Simone Benhayon come into the a room is magical even before she steps in the joy that is in her body, is like a bow wave before her and my heart is filled with the same joy. Just imagine what the world would be and feel like if we all tapped into and lived as she does, that same joy, it would be transformational.

  14. When I consider inspiration and how it works, it always takes me back to high school, science. The low vibration pulls towards the high vibration, as everything in life is working to restore equilibrium and harmony.

    1. Amazing Fiona, I love what you’ve shared here. It makes sense to apply science to everyday life and not just use it in medicine, education and research. It doesn’t make sense to restrict science in this way, because it is very much part of our everyday life. The magic of science reminds us of how grand and powerful we are and that there is something much much grander about us that we are not tapping into.

  15. We simply cannot comprehend to what extend we can inspire others through the way we live. Natalie and Miranda Benhayon are gorgeous and incredible examples of women who do live their ‘all’ in every moment and have established a beautiful quality that can be felt in every interaction and in how they walk and live too.

    1. Absolutely Susie, the power of reflection is incredible. Most of us underestimate how powerful this is. In everything that we do, there is a quality to it that can either inspire or drain people. The beautiful examples Fiona gave us of Miranda and Natalie is amazing. It highlights how we can contribute our divine qualities to the word and make impactful changes through the way we move.

  16. Each and every women is unique in way of expression but all hold the same and equal innate sacredness within. It is just do we choose (and more importantly do we truly know how to!) reconnect to this and live from here. There is nothing to reach to, nothing to attain because we are it, it lives within us and Miranda and Natalie Benhayon are beautiful role models and reflections to all women to show just how easy and lovely this is when we choose to.

  17. This blog goes to show the power of our movements, we are all observers in life so when someone is moving a little differently we notice, and the ripple is felt and offered as an opportunity to stop and consider.

    1. Beautifully expressed Simon and I see that a majority of people in this world are not aware of the power of our movements and how this can change the world. If we want to truly restore harmony, it is very simple, we just have to change the quality of our movements to allow the harmony to be express through our body.

  18. Thank-you Fiona for expressing so beautifully how it feels when you are in the presence of these two most glorious, inspiring women, Natalie and Miranda and the gift they share with all by their every movement in absolute sacredness and grace, that allows us the reflection that this is the way open for all women to re-connect to the beautiful sacredness within themselves if/when we choose.

  19. Everything is revealed in the way we move, nothing is hidden. Understanding a true practitioner of life comes from observing their movements not their actions…

  20. A sharing that is showing us that true role modeling works only if it is true and opening us up to more love and truth. Helping us, by showing through its movement – a way of living that is supporting a deepening of our relationship with truth and love in our every day life.

  21. “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” This is beautiful to read, there is a power and authority when you see Natalie, Miranda or Simone Benhayon move. It is not something you can pin point and say that is it, it is their whole body presence that says this is something I would like to be, not out of need but out of a deep knowing that what we see within them is within us also.

  22. These women are so surrendered to who they innately are, their movements are a reflection of their connection to sacredness and show us what is possible if we too choose to surrender

    1. That’s a great way to describe it Mary Louise ‘so surrendered to who they innately are..’ so others can then be all of themselves, nothing hidden, nothing put on.

      1. Exactly Susan, naturally who they are, this is what we all aspire to, just being okay with who we are, not trying to be like any-one else.

  23. Miranda and Natalie remind us daily of a Woman’s sacredness and what that truly looks like in movement through an ordinary day – that in itself quashes any picture or imaginings around what sacredness is – this is why it is so delicious for us to drink in what we see and feel and know.

  24. In watching Natalie and Miranda Benhayon, I notice that each of their movements is not designed to make anyone else feels smaller or less valuable. They seem to know their worth and simply express it so.

  25. Thank you so much I have to swipe a credit card at work and realise now that I am often doing it as if I don’t trust it is going to go through – with a kind of tension and pressure. Great to have this awareness alongside your example of how graceful this action can be, thus confirming the harmony that is possible. In fact every time I use cards at anytime I can treat them and what they represent with more respect and honour.

  26. You have offered me some new markers for sacredness in my body now, I can feel there is another level I can go to, yet another peeling back of the layers in re-connecting to myself on such a simple mundane level yet one that builds a knowingness in me that feels so solid. Thank you for taking the time to write this blog.

  27. So love reading your descriptions of how sacredness moves in both Natalie and Miranda. Such a tangible feeling of what it means to live sacredness in our bodies. Inspiration.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

    1. Its the movements in every sphere of life, up on stage, at the reception desk, brushing out teeth, preparing at the Board table. Big or small our movements are super important as they define our quality and the space around us.

  33. “..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.

  34. ‘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.

  35. 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.

  36. 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!

  37. “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.

    2. This is something I am ready to learn and I can feel that part of the learning is to let go of any attachment to an outcome, or to time itself. This comes from knowing you are serving a higher plan that the restriction of time that we live by permits. I am completely in awe of that potential knowing it is completely there for each and every one of us whenever we choose to build our movements in a way that can feel it as a truth.

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

  39. 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’.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  44. 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.
