Walking your Walk

Us humans take a lot for granted. We know that, because when something is taken away we mourn it and regret the fact that we didn’t treasure it more, be it a loved one, material possessions, money or our job.

So what about the body?

The body seems to be the one thing that is taken for granted the most. The way we use it, abuse it, make it do all sorts of extreme activities, diets, social adventures and just as commonly, letting the body stagnate in the comfort of inactivity by doing nothing at all! Of course, when the body starts showing signs of dis-ease and ill health, some of us take it as a wakeup call, that things need to change; some blame the body for its lack of acceptance of one’s chosen lifestyle and they continue to do what they’ve always done and ‘put up’ with the body’s communications, or silence these communications with ‘medicative means.

Healing is a big deal in our world and there are many who believe they can heal others, that they are talented, have the equivalent of a ‘green thumb’ to the body as if it were a garden bed. But what if no one can actually do the healing for us? What if they can only inspire or ignite the body’s own and very natural way of healing what has been erroneously lived?

The key here is ‘what has been lived’ – because if our bodies get affected, dis-eased and ill from the way we live and move through life, then doesn’t it make sense that ‘life’ could also be the healer?

Walking, breathing, eating, our relationships, our work, our study, the way we move, how we drive – everything in life is an opportunity to heal and bring more of ourselves to life through the body. These are everyday life activities, many of which we take for granted, not realising the value in these somewhat basic tasks. We may not realise or have the awareness in our everyday life, but we DO know the importance and we DO take notice of these aspects – even if it is on a subconscious level.

We know when we are nervous, tense or stressed because the breath changes and gets fast and shallow. We can tell by watching someone walking down the street whether they are well in themselves, healthy, confident, shy, and insecure or being himself or herself. We know when someone is in a relationship, be it family, friends or partners, that isn’t doing so well and we can see that disharmony in their body by how they talk, breathe, sit, stand and walk.

It’s obvious, yet we haven’t really put two and two together and figured out the link between our living way, true wellbeing and sense of self.

There is one man who is presenting this as a fact and in doing so is changing the way many people see themselves and how they use life to their advantage by making use of everyday movements and tasks that we all have to do.

That man is Serge Benhayon.

Not only does Serge support many people in all areas of life through healing workshops and presentations that empower people to take their lives into their own hands and live it the way that life is intended to be lived, he has also recently initiated the modality of Walking Therapies.

Now this may sound strange, but when you think about it, how often do we walk? We have to walk to get from A to B – we have to walk to the bathroom, to the car and to bed (unless of course you have lost the mobility in your legs). So is there something in our walk that can actually have a very healing and medicinal quality for our body? There are sayings like ‘take a walk’ if someone is out of control, or ‘walk it off’ if they need space to come back to themselves. We know the power of a good walk, whether it’s solo or with others. Our walk speaks volumes of how we are so it makes absolute sense to myself and many other people who have experienced the modality of Walking Therapies, as presented by Serge Benhayon through Universal Medicine.

On a personal account, nothing fancy happened in my Walking Therapy session – no crazy hi-tech machines that test the heat and pressure on your feet were used in this operation. It was basic and simple: a group of people walking, but walking in a way that was full of whole body presence and a purpose of expressing who we are in each and every stride. Serge was remarkable in the way he moved and walked from person to person offering one-to-one assistance. Watching him move was inspirational in itself, as the level of love, grace and speed he moved with spoke deeply of the way he lives his life and what he is connected to on an everyday level. You look at Serge walk and know that we are more than human – but he does human very well!

By taking on the small adjustments that Serge offered to me, my body completely shifted and my walk changed in a big way: no longer was I stuck in my head, I was in the presence and total enjoyment of my own movement and flow. I felt more confident, more connected to myself and more connected to those around me and afar. I guess that is saying a lot really – as when we are actually connected to our body and not caught in the mind we can FEEL the level of connection that our bodies have with everything else in life. The mind can’t feel, but the body feels it all – especially what we cannot see.

The Walking Therapies have taught me much about my movement and the beauty of this is that I can practise it ALL THE TIME! Just as we breathe, eat, go to work, communicate in relationships – life is a constant instrument to express and deepen the relationship with the body and the connection this carries to the greater, grander aspects of life energetically.

  1. This has been something I have recently become more aware of… appreciation for what is on offer in each and every moment. Why hang on to the past, dream about the future, seek drama or indulge in hurts when there is an abundance of love on offer to connect with and tap into?

  2. “The body seems to be the one thing that is taken for granted the most.” This is so true. We will so readily make almost anything more important than our bodies, but at what expense? Eventually they will stop us in our tracks if we keep ignoring the messages they send. Far better to pay attention sooner rather than later and act on what we are being offered.

  3. We walk a lot….curiously how much attention do we give to the way in which we walk. I would guess not a lot, especially compared to how much we walk. I remember Serge Benhayon a few years ago talking about how few of us in the human race are actually really connected to their body and walk in whole body presence. I know at the time I was not very connected and often walked ‘checked out’ – thinking about anything and everything. I felt that so acutely as to the impact that this must have on the earth when all these millions of people are walking (even stomping) around in disconnection to themselves. I reckon more than climate change would have actually.

  4. I have to have a tooth out and if I had cut down on the nuts and seeds and other crunchy things way earlier I may have been able to save my tooth….or at least have it last a way longer. It’s interesting that munching on seeds was the last straw for this particular molar…..something,( eating seeds and before that nuts) I know is not always wise for my digestion and even something a dentist once told me not to do because of the wear on my teeth and the possible fragility of them. I did stop for a while. We always know how to look after ourselves but sometimes stubbornly ignore the professional advice if it is not what we want to hear and chance that we can ‘get away with it’. We cannot, as my tooth is quite clearly demonstrating.

  5. The walking therapies are indeed a gift from God. When we were walking as a group, and Serge asked us to walk in a situation, I could not believe how draining and exhausting it was to walk like that. Especially, when you think that everyone is walking like this, it makes sense the level of despondency we live with on a daily basis.

  6. Yes! This makes perfect sense. Like it is soooo sensible ‘because if our bodies get affected, dis-eased and ill from the way we live and move through life, then doesn’t it make sense that ‘life’ could also be the healer?’ How we live holds the key to our health, our everyday choices and movements, how simple could it be and costs nothing! However, I did not truly understand or feel this until I met Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon, but this is something we should all be taught from young, as well as the truth in energy, which is also taught and presented by Universal Medicine.

  7. Serge Benhayon has been bringing our awareness to our walks for a long time now. Just having presence and feeling the swing of your arms and hips has a hugely healing effect by bringing you back to your body. There is a lovely rhythm in my walk that reassures and steadies me and allows me to feel me again if I get lost in the computer or my work.

  8. Simply walking has become a science that allows us to deeply appreciate how and what is moving our bodies.
    Then in feeling what a joy it is to be connected and present with our essence and the joyfulness that is coming from the fluid movements as the body moves to it’s own rhythm, providing a clear relationship with more Love movement.

  9. Healing is a collaboration, firstly the person with themselves and their soul, then if required a practitioner as a facilitator, then as well the people around oneself by reflection and nature by symbolism…

  10. Our walks are only truly our walks when we connect back to our innermost and allow the power of the all to flow through us.

  11. We are never not healing, it simply cannot stop and has nothing to do with illness and disease, but much more with clearing ourselves from what we are not and releasing more of who we are.

  12. We only ever can offer another the opportunity and facilitation of healing, but the healing itself is fully a self-responsible choice and process we can embrace and activate/live at any moment, i.e. stopping the activity of the ill energy that produces any suffering, misery, illness and disease.

  13. I now know it to be true, that the mind can’t feel, but the body feels it all – even when I don’t want to feel something I know that my body has felt it – we can’t not feel, we can only choose to not be aware of what we are feeling.

  14. It is so true that our movements reveal and communicate everything of the quality of energy we align to, so it makes absolute sense to develop a loving and honoring relationship with our body. For in bringing honesty and awareness to the quality of how we are moving we can maximise our connection to our essence and all that we are intrinsically connected to and walk the power of who we truly are, and really, are here to walk. Thank you Rachael, for presenting how empowering and transforming the Walking Therapies with Serge Benhayon are as this also was my experience, and as you say an amazing tool we can put into practice to continue to deepen ‘ALL THE TIME!’

  15. I’ve experienced walking therapy sessions with Serge Benhayon and they truly are profound and incredibly supportive. The insight that he shares on the different qualities that can be there when we move and walk is so valuable.

  16. There comes a moment when we realize that every move matters, that it is either harming or healing. That fact actually makes me stop in my tracks and take a moment to consider the significant meaning, but then it simply asks me to choose wisely the quality of my next move and that move is always now.

  17. Yes, we have put all our eggs in the basket of medicine and healing from by others yet what about life and the way we are living each and every day?

  18. We take most of our movements for granted and once we have ‘learnt’ a movement we rarely go back and truly feel wether we are moving in a way that is true and honouring of ourselves. We allow ourselves to walk with things that have affected us during our day and also through our lives, making us walk less then who we are. I know from my own experience from these walking therapies, I used to walk small and hide instead of walking the fullness of myself and showing the world how amazing I am, a true healing indeed.

    1. It sure is and this is the true blessing that is offered through the teachings of Serge Benhayon, for us all to realise and activate in our lives, so that we can live and magnify the power of who we are, why we are here, and inspire others to equally do the same, as Serge reflects through his every movement.

  19. “everything in life is an opportunity to heal and bring more of ourselves to life through the body”. To live life with this understanding brings out our true qualities, not those imposed on us from the outside.

  20. What Serge Benhayon is presenting via the Walking Therapies is nothing less than miraculous. What I have felt in my own body and also observed in others as we were introduced to this heaven sent modality, was so simple yet at the same time hugely profound. There is no end to what is possible when we walk in connection to the power of who we are, and the ripple effect that has on everyone and everything around us.

  21. Yes I agree these walking therapies immediately bring mind and body together as one and we begin to walk in our authority. We can let go of lifetimes of baggage and allow a new life to emerge for us.

  22. I recently attended one of these Walking Therapy sessions Rachael, and it was incredible how much shifted for all that were present . As you say, Serge supported everyone individually and equally, and by bringing focus to how we move completely shifted the way we walked so that our bodies moved effortlessly but with such grace and power. Such a simple tool, but one that when brought consistantly to our everyday, makes such a difference to everything that we do.

  23. We spend so much time on our feet it is worth investing some time and effort being aware of the way that we walk.
