By Pia Jung, Germany (English second language)
For many years I was living on a very low level of energy/vitality. I felt very, very exhausted.
In 2006 I went to a presentation by Serge Benhayon, and as I really liked it (especially because of the feeling that I felt inside of me), I became curious for more and went to some more presentations. Although I enjoyed those too, I remained very cautious for quite some time because I was not sure if I could trust that what I was feeling, that what was being presented, was true. However, after I did my first 2-day course with Serge a few years ago I realised that what he was presenting, and what I was feeling in my body, was not wrong, that it was actually true.
Since that time I have attended more workshops run by Serge and Universal Medicine and listened to his presentations, and my life has changed in so many ways. The level of energy/vitality I feel in my body is so much higher, and I feel most amazing due to the awareness I now have.
I am learning to understand what it means to truly take care of myself and to take responsibility for my body, my life and my choices. No longer am I dependent on anybody, and I am learning to distinguish between what is true and what is not true.
It feels most amazing that I am no longer as emotional as I used to be, and can feel the freedom of myself inside of me. I have also experienced lovely support in many ways and from all different sides. This support is always there.
The most beautiful thing about Serge and his presentations is that he never asks us to be in a certain way or wants to change us, but just supports us with all of his love and patience to be myself/ourselves.

Pia I love the simplicity of this sharing. You met a man, who happens to be called Serge Benhayon, it could easily have been a woman. However despite the sex or name, this person impacted your life in a better way. No impositions, you just studied him until, you felt that this was true – I like this. We spend countless years, and money searching for that person and when they appear and that feeling is of absoluteness is present then we follow it – it is that simple.
I also loved this statement, ‘he never asks us to be in a certain way or wants to change us, but just supports us with all of his love and patience to be myself/ourselves’ – this is all that he does, he just allows us to be.
What you have written about Serge Benhayon is so true from my own experience
“I am learning to understand what it means to truly take care of myself and to take responsibility for my body, my life and my choices. No longer am I dependent on anybody, and I am learning to distinguish between what is true and what is not true.”
I relied on other people’s opinion because I gave my power away because they seemed cleverer than me because they could remember things that for me went in one ear and straight out of the other. So I considered myself to be less than. But actually there is a way if we listen to our bodies that can tune in with no effort to a great intelligence and it flows through us when we get ourselves out of the way and not rely on our minds. It is quite fantastic what I know, without knowing. When I try and grab this knowing its gone. I’m learning that this universal knowledge cannot be owned by anyone if we just let ourselves be it is there in an instant.
Mary it is true and it doesn’t work, when we attempt to validate ourselves through others, we continue to be validated, it is a vicious circle. When we look inwards, know who we truly are, then what is occurring outside does not matter. The more we look inwards, the more we are empowered and then, this can be a beacon for others too.
“No longer am I dependent on anybody, and I am learning to distinguish between what is true and what is not true.” It is so worth it to distinguish as there are so many things outside most of us can fall for.
“It feels most amazing that I am no longer as emotional as I used to be, and can feel the freedom of myself inside of me.” It is also a wonderful gift to give the body to be more free of the emotional ups and downs and turmoil as it’s quite exhausting, and the body is so nurtured by our stillness.
Serge Benhayon is one of the most un-imposing presenters I know and yet in his presentations he reminds us all of how much grander we actually are and often do not realise or shy away from living: “The most beautiful thing about Serge and his presentations is that he never asks us to be in a certain way or wants to change us, but just supports us with all of his love and patience to be myself/ourselves.”
The presentations are always so very interesting in a “hang off every word” kind of way, they don’t hold back the truth yet they are always loving and unimposing.
Serge Benhayon presents many simple truths in his books, writings, presentations and workshops, that are deeply inspiring and can certainly change our lives when we put them into lived practice.
Pia, what a gorgeous sharing of your appreciation and holding dear of what you know to be the truth that you have re-discovered again.
I love the last paragraph as it is the description of true love – no judgment, just supporting another with love to be all they are.
It’s such a difference in perception of people, to see the love they are or only their behaviours or choices which we so often can judge.
Yes, when we see people for their true nature, which is love, first rather than their behaviours it sets a completely different foundation for communication and relationship.
This is true, Serge Benhayon never judges or places expectations on us, he knows we are innately amazing beings, and so just supports us to return to this amazingness when we are ready to embrace this, ‘but just supports us with all of his love and patience to be myself/ourselves.’
Bringing back self responsibility is so important, ‘I am learning to understand what it means to truly take care of myself and to take responsibility for my body, my life and my choices.’
“…. as I really liked it (especially because of the feeling that I felt inside of me), I became curious for more and went to some more presentations.” It is with our heart, as it knows truth, and not ‘head’ that we resonate with the Truth of what Serge Benhayon presents.
Over twenty years ago, I experienced chronic fatigue and was a shadow of myself. Today, I am no longer fatigued, not in my body, not in my life. The vitality I now have supports me to continue working and be an active member of my community. Thank you Serge Benhayon.
It is through what we feel in our body that we know what is true or not.
“It is through what we feel in our body that we know what is true or not.” Love the simplicity of this Jonathon.
“I am learning to understand what it means to truly take care of myself and to take responsibility for my body, my life and my choices” – me too, and this is a forever deepening, enriching process and the beautiful thing about this is that the more I do this, the more I get the sense that it is not just about me.
Pia, like you I was very sceptical in the beginning but at the end of the day there was nothing that could ever take away what I felt in my body.
I feel this is how Serge Benhayon supports people to regain their vitality and purpose for life. I kept saying to myself there must be more to the expectations society places on us. Grow up and get an education, having got that, the next tick in the tick box is get a boyfriend, preferably one with good prospects that can support you. Get engaged, then married. Next on the tick box of life is have children, and start the whole process again with them. Surely there is more to human life than this? I personally thank heaven for Serge Benhayon because his presentations and workshops to me are a breath of fresh air. There is more to life, there is a purpose other than that mentioned above, and I have opted for this other way of life because it actually makes complete sense to me.
How come we have geared our lives to be full of emotion when actually it is very harming to us, this doesn’t make sense any more to me.
To be supported to be ourselves what an amazing gift and that is one that I feel blessed by having met and knowing Serge Benhayon.
Monica, I agree. I never knew it was possible to simply be ourselves with no outer impositions until I met Serge Benhayon.
Two different paths: first, a person disconnected to his/her body, not too vital, relating to the world via the mind and establishing what is true or not based on it. Second, a person that is more connected to the body that learns that somehow, what is true and not is communicated to us from inside our own body by the way we feel in it in a deep way.
It is so true Pia, Serge does support every single person in the room to be themselves without any pressure or expectation. He knows that eventually we all will come back to us and to realise that there is more to life than the bubbles we live in.
Thank you Pia, it’s so true, Serge never asks anyone to be anything just offers his love to support people to return to their true essence. Even though I’ve been attending presentations by Serge since 2012 I’m still astonished by how much he understands about human beings and society, he is truly an extraordinary person and his love and care for humanity is beautiful to witness.
You are right Pia … how amazing to be supported to just be ourselves.
Yes, and there is no greater gift of love than ‘to be supported to just be ourselves.’
When the truth inside of us meets the truth in the outside, then we have found what we were looking for.
Totally agree Pia, it is beautiful when we start to trust ourselves to know what we feel is true, and that feeling is a great marker and guide for us through life, because truth is simply truth, it is when we try to manipulate the truth life becomes complicated.
It’s so true. Serge Benhayon never asks or needs us to be any certain way or even believe or agree with what he is presenting. He just presents and leaves it up to us to live that in our lives or not. In this way he never try’s to convince or persuade as he is not invested in any outcome.
How do we validate what we feel, listen, read is crucial. The world teaches us that there are ways to do this and what we can trust and not. Yet, not by chance, the body is never part of those teachings.
Hmm.. That is true Eduardo, we are forever able to share truth, but it is up to us to feel and read it. Thank you Serge Benhayon for sharing the absolute truth.
In the past few years I have been clearing and healing all my old hurts and in doing so, I have found that I have more confidence, I can more easily trust myself and I can feel what is true for me and what is not. It can be challenging to face ourselves, but the benefits of simplifying life is worth it.
Pia that you feel less exhausted is wonderful thank you for sharing this. I am sure if more people would chose to be less emotional they would be less exhausted too and would not need so much coffee or energy drinks.
With exhaustion being a common theme for many in this modern day an organisation that addresses honestly and supports our vitality is definitely one to observe.
‘I am learning to understand what it means to truly take care of myself and to take responsibility for my body, my life and my choices. No longer am I dependent on anybody, and I am learning to distinguish between what is true and what is not true’. This is awesome and a consequence for many who attend the courses with Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon.
Leaving emotional drama, the rollercoaster of life, the arguing, all behind has been like a miracle for me, and yet it is not only possible, now it is very normal.
I can relate to what you share Heather, I’ve also long left the rollercoaster of life, walk my own walk and accept of who I am and who others are.
Pia, this a beautiful testimony of the true nature of Serge Benhayon’s work. We’re supported to love and care for ourselves and it’s not just for us. With vitality in our bodies and love in our hearts, we have so much more to give back to life.
When we build a true foundation of support within ourselves we naturally feel confident. There is no amount of accolades or material wealth etc. that can substitute for a true foundation.
I so needed to be reminded just now of that lovely, patient beholding that Serge Benhayon is with everyone. I was just disappointed by someone’s choices but reading this I am able to look at it in a different light.
A great sharing Pia. When we trust ourselves then all falls into place.
I agree, Pia – the Love that Serge Benhayon meets everyone with just holds us wherever we might be at, always reflecting a choice of how we can also be.
Beautiful in its simplicity Pia, thank you – just be you…all of you, that’s all there is to it.
When even one person starts to take more responsibility for themselves I can feel that a weight is lifted slightly from the world… be that the creaking NHS, the embattled environment, or our failing political system. We become more self reliant and start to give back quite naturally.
Pia, I love your last paragraph, it captures exactly what Serge Benhayon does so clearly, and absolutely consistently with everyone …. there is no demand to be anything other than who you are, and you are lovingly support to feel and express more of you and consider what is true for you, and as a natural part of that process all that is false or not true for you falls away. Serge is the most amazing support anyone could ever have, and his love for all is boundless, he reminds us that we too are love.
“The most beautiful thing about Serge and his presentations is that he never asks us to be in a certain way or wants to change us, but just supports us with all of his love and patience to be myself/ourselves.” Yes, this is most beautiful and supportive, to be allowed to be yourself and explore more of you in your own time.
When we give ourselves permission to just be ourselves and to give ourselves space to explore and deepen the relationship with ourselves, this is being super self-supportive and loving.
Its absolute gold when we start to build a trust in what we are feeling, and all that takes is a bit of presence – we are given the opportunity to choose a hundred times a day, but feeling what we are actually choosing? We can ignore that for a lifetime.
Indeed Pia, Serge Benhayon will never ask us to be in a certain way, he just appreciates us for who we are as from our essence as that is our true worth we once will return to.
Thank you Pia a beautiful testimony to feeling the truth in your body and following the truth to move in a way that supports your body to be vital and healthy. Our quality of movement really does aid our day to day living and can leave us feeling energised or lethargic depending on the energy we choose to move in. Trusting what you feel and then moving from this impulse definitely feels like an amazing way to be.
Sure Kelly, trusting and surrendering to that what we just know is good for us, as from an impulse, is an amazing way to live life. A way of living life that is true to the nature of our being and with that brings joy, love, harmony into our lives, even more than we have been longing for all of our lives.
It is quite amazing to turn your life around to the point where you see the support and care everywhere first. At points in my life I thought everyone and everything was out to get me and now you see things more clearly for what they are. My life was a mess of everything that was going on and I was just trying to get by day to day in the hope that one day it would change, hope never supported me. What was needed was for me to get my hands dirty and have a look at how I was being in the world. Yes there are many things that go on that can be shocking, bad and hard but I would sit back and wait for them to be better. Now I have an activate part in life and I don’t mean just moving things around, I take every moment I can carefully, not perfectly or slowly but carefully and that care as it grows with each step gathers a momentum that now is supporting me back. Who knew things could be so so simple, take a continued care with what you touch and that care then comes back in what you see.
One of the greatest gifts that Serge Benhayon shares with all equally is how to re-build the natural foundation of trust with-in ourselves. There are many ways and reasons we loose trust in ourselves, from my experience it was from the environment I lived relaying messages that what I felt wasn’t true, there fore not feeling honoured, which lead to self-doubt and an ultimate choice to default to an external authority. However discovering through presentations and workshops that what our bodies want to show us and share can actually be trusted is a wonderful re-claiming of my inner knowing, self worth, trusting myself and innate wisdom. There is no great authority than what I know to be true from with-in.
What you have shared is very telling of how we generally live today as a society; not trusting what we feel within. This is a sad but true fact that we learn to override our inner-knowing so much so that we think that this is normal. As a result, we lose our sense of who we truly are and lose our way of living in connection to a quality within that confirms not only who we are but how we can live guided by our truth within. The beautiful thing is that is never leaves us and it always ready to guide us whenever we choose.
