For many years I had what I felt was a strange and challenging relationship with alcohol. I first started drinking as a teenager, when I went to parties at friends’ houses. The first time I drank, the rush was so new to me and felt so ‘freeing’, that I overdid it and got sick. I have been thin all my life, and it never really took much to overdo it, no matter what I drank. One would think that would help me put a stop to drinking ever again, but it didn’t. The feeling I had of being ‘comfortable in my own skin’, to open up and not be shy, seemed to be worth enough that I came back to alcohol again and again all through college and beyond. I had a lot of fun, and I also overdid it a lot and got physically sick and hung over a lot. Continue reading “Getting Honest about Alcohol”

I would like to share what I discovered through my recent sessions with a local Universal Medicine practitioner.
While I knew my diet was quite good, I had to admit that how I digested and reacted to the food was irregular. It seems like a simple process, one we have lived with (one way or another) since day one, yet food can be an issue throughout one’s whole life. I knew what tasted nice, I knew what didn’t taste nice, I knew what reacted with my body, so why then did I feel so up and down after eating? There had to be more to this and I needed to examine what that was, and why. Continue reading “Thought for Food”

I have been attending Universal Medicine (UniMed) workshops and courses since 2003; during this time I have never experienced anything other than the utmost professionalism. No subject presented, or statement made, has ever been delivered as a sermon or with any hint of prejudice. Neither is there any sense of obligation that one must follow advice or suggestions in order to be accepted. Quite simply what is delivered is a simple, informed and straightforward presentation. Take it or leave it, the choice is the individual’s.
I have never seen anyone present live to an audience and follow a subject or topic/s through with such consistency, and to do so without preparation or aids. Not only is each topic covered with consistency, but the topics are also often shown to interconnect and interrelate, following a logical pattern and flow. Serge Benhayon actually makes this look simple. And to an observer familiar with how challenging it is to present live and to do so with such integrity – this in itself is worthy of attention.

I’ve been around the work (Universal Medicine) now for about 4 years. During that time I have seen many changes in myself and others. I might add that when I started I was only 14 years old. You might say that because of my age it was only natural that I was changing and developing as a young man… and whilst that may be true, I still find it interesting to reflect on the ways I have changed, and wonder how different it would be if I didn’t have the inspiration of Universal Medicine and my fellow students.
I would say that through attending the workshops and courses I have been given many opportunities to assess my choices in a much more responsible manner. For example, during my final year in schooling we had many guest speakers come into the school to give talks on how to be safe at ‘schoolies’ – such as the Red frogs (Christian aid organisation), St John’s ambulance service and Queensland Police.
