During the last 15 years, I have worked in mainstream alternative medicine clinics that have offered chiropractic, acupuncture, musculoskeletal therapy, kinesiology, as well as detox and weight loss programs.
As it was one of my duties to assist clients with their program, it was important for me to have experienced this for myself as well. I was overweight and most certainly could benefit from a thorough detox. Of course, at the end of each program, I could expect wondrous results… to feel vital, drop a dress size, and much happier within myself. Guess what… it didn’t happen!
Then along came a practitioner who had also trained with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, offering us a treatment. I took up the offer and had no expectations. This was a new experience and sometimes it felt really weird, but my body felt light and gentle, and I realised that this was the real ‘ME’ without all of the impositions of life. I had not experienced anything as profound as this before. This was such a contrast to my experience of everyday life, as well as the end result of the detox / weight loss program that I had been on. And all this revealed within a one hour session!
Why was it that with only one treatment, I was left feeling so good? I felt I needed to know more about this ‘mystery’, so I attended my first workshop, and so began my association with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.
I have since attended many workshops and healing courses presented by Serge. He speaks in a way that is so common sense. You sit there thinking “Deep down, I know this” – but no one has ever put it in words that make it so simple.
Through Serge Benhayon’s presentations I have been able to identify patterns of behaviour that would previously have had me holding on to emotions, and running stories over and over in my head. I have been able to identify my relationship with food and how certain foods feel in my body. I have been able to join the dots about feeding emotions with food when facing issues I didn’t know how to deal with.
After attending Universal Medicine presentations and receiving support from some wonderful Esoteric Practitioners, I realised that I wanted a modality that took ‘ME’ into account and asked me ‘WHY’?
Why was I feeling how I did?… Why did I need to eat that way?… Why did I feel sluggish?… Why didn’t I truly enjoy life, and… why didn’t I recognise that I deserved more in life?
More recently, I have been attending presentations by some amazing women practitioners from Universal Medicine. These are specifically for women discussing women’s health issues as well as pressures that affect our daily lives. There are many open and honest discussions, and it is wonderful to know that I am not alone in feeling the intensity around the ideals we feel we need to live up to as women, and more importantly providing the support to just be ourselves in the world. I have received a number of Esoteric Breast Massages as well, and continue to be amazed at how much more of the real and lovely me there is to feel.
Several years ago, I updated my qualifications to include Beauty Therapy. Many of my clients comment on how steady I am (seemingly unaffected by outside influences) and quite often ask how I do it. Others comment on the weight I have shed, and how my eyes are always sparkly. There have also been many comments on the salon being their little sanctuary, and different from others – how calm they feel, and how they can just be themselves there. We have some amazing conversations, and other times nothing much is said. Either way, I know that what I have taken away with me from the courses I have attended through Universal Medicine, as well as treatments from Universal Medicine trained practitioners has not only helped me and my family, but has made a great difference for my clients as well.
So, here I am eight plus years later, about ten kilos lighter, with my doctor telling me how good I look, amazed that my cholesterol has gone down steadily each year (even though I eat enough eggs and nuts to feed an army), and commenting that I never need to come to see her except for my annual ‘grease and oil change’.
Thank you to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, I can now feel the real me! For me, the saying ‘de-clutter and simplify’ really sums it all up. Maybe that’s a little too basic, but why does life need to be so complicated anyway?
