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. I am so grateful to have been able to attend a walking therapy with Serge Benhayon and wowzers they aren’t just a walk in the park. This is where we pull our socks up and get into it, thought he different exercises offered and experiencing them it was undeniable the chose we have and how we walk. But more importantly how this had a massive impact not just on myself but my partner and the whole room. So a profound experience and one that I can take with me to explore and have fun with.

  2. A simple change in the way I chose to walk to work had initiated a massive change in my whole composure at work and in life. It only takes a choice to walk in your full power and authority for you to initiate a significant change in your walk. Walking in any other way is in fact illness and dis-ease.

  3. We take so much for granted, it is often only when we do not have something that we really value and appreciate it. Just like with another person the same goes for our bodies and health. When we are feeling great no problem, but it is usually only when things go wrong that we start to look at the way we are and have been living. So why do we need to be forced rather than continuously choosing love. It makes no sense as we are the ‘intelligent’ species but shows there is more going on than purely what our eyes alone can see.

  4. ‘everything in life is an opportunity to heal and bring more of ourselves to life through the body’. Without this awareness of our bodies we are lost…we are then reliant on the mind and thoughts that can take us way off course..bringing it back to the body brings it home.

  5. The Walking Therapies as Serge Benhayon has presented are a game changer, because they bring us back to the fact that we are vessels of energy and the way we move affects EVERYTHING. We can deny this and think we have the answers, but if we do not first move with the love we are, then the answers we get will simply be to solve the problems we face rather, than truly and fully embracing the love we are.

  6. “The mind can’t feel, but the body feels it all – especially what we cannot see.”

    I love this line. Not only is it so true, it also helps us be aware of how much we use the noise in the head to drown out the simple communication of the body.

    1. If we were to simply live the words you have shared Elizabeth our life would change, rather than seeing life as a challenge and a fight, if we see life as opportunity to live the love we are we will not fear or react to what is before us, rather we will embrace it. And when we move with this acceptance and quality we will deepen and solidify the love we are.

  7. Allowing our body to lead the way when we move from a steadiness of connection and presence with our body establishes a true quality and harmony to our whole way of being and empowers us with an awareness to observe and discern the truth in the situations around us instead of reacting and being at the mercy of life and walking in an anxiousness and in unsettled way that can stay with us for many years.

  8. Since experiencing the Walking Therapies with Serge Benhayon, every day has changed because of how inspiring and incredible it was.
