I was brought up in a family that was not involved in any religion, yet I remember as a young child feeling that I wanted to meet God. As a 7-8 year old I had a friend who talked a lot about God. She spoke about heaven and hell, who ends up where, doing good in order to go to heaven, God punishing us for our bad actions – the entire religious cliché… and pretty much that there was this grey, long bearded, big guy somewhere up in the sky, who sees and hears everything and acts upon anything we do, say and even think – so no negative thoughts about any deranged family members!

I didn’t believe a word she was saying and I vehemently denied the existence of such a God. Even as a young girl I was able to feel the flaws in these and similar statements and raise a lot of questions in regards to her claims; if we are ALL the children of God, how can HE love some more and some less by way of rewarding some and punishing other?

A Picture’s Worth A Thousand Words – with a Few of the Words

Please note: Universal Medicine courses are not weight loss courses, they are about the possibility that we can make more self-loving and self-nurturing choices in our day-to-day lives. Weight loss is often a natural occurrence when these choices are implemented in daily life as can be seen from the photos Rowena and Jonathan Stewart have sent in below.

It is worth noting that from an Esoteric perspective, there is no ‘perfect body weight’ to achieve, only a shape that is most natural to you, and which can be allowed to be and take shape, as a harmonious and loving relationship with yourself is embraced and then embodied.

Love – The Key To A Whole-Of-Life Change

The teachings and presentations of Serge Benhayon have helped me in every aspect of my life: in my work, my home, at school, with food, exercise, physical health and, most importantly, in the way I am with myself and people, and the relationships I have with them. All of this has not been because of individual teachings per se, but from just one – love. Serge has helped me know, to the deepest part of my being, that I am from an amazing love – and when that love is allowed to be there and is developed in the body, it is automatically expressed and filtered into every aspect of life. How can it not be so? Love has no barriers and does not discriminate. Continue reading “Love – The Key To A Whole-Of-Life Change”

About Me and Serge Benhayon

by Sandra Schneider, Erftstadt, Germany (English 2nd language)

Serge once said to me: “My joy is to see you (students) returning to who you truly are.”

Well, I can understand that.

I first heard about Serge Benhayon eight years ago. I was sitting in my garden with my partner and our friend Alex, planning our wedding celebration. Alex told us about this guy from Australia he met in England and what he said. I was immediately interested because he spoke about what I had felt my whole life.

Life-giving Wisdom: It’s In The Way We Live

by Dr Lyndy Summerhaze, BA, PhD., DipMusEd, AmusA, Australia

I have been associated with Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon for five years now and I have found nothing but the highest integrity, goodwill and just plain good sense. Getting to feel this last quality – plain good sense – in the midst of a world of complication, has been one of the most liberating things I have ever experienced, enabling me to let go of a crippling life of turmoil and drama.

Over these years as I attended talks and courses, I have felt a call to come out of my hiding away from the world and just getting through as best I could, to now participating joyfully in life and making a contribution. The way this was accomplished was not through imposition of any kind – there was no telling me what to do. There was simply the presentation of an elegant truth that we all originally come from love and that this is the stuff we are made of. Continue reading “Life-giving Wisdom: It’s In The Way We Live”

If Everyone is Equal, How Could I Worship Another?

by Jane Torvaney, Tayport, Fife, Scotland

Following the recent allegations about Serge Benhayon and how he has been portrayed in the media, I have been asking myself the following questions…

1. Has my life really changed since meeting Serge Benhayon and attending Universal Medicine workshops?

2. If so, what has changed for me?

3. What is it about Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine that has allowed any change to occur?

So, to answer these questions… Continue reading “If Everyone is Equal, How Could I Worship Another?”

The harm we do when we make it about ‘someone said’…

by Lucy, Sydney, Australia

For many years I made it all about ‘Serge said’. I used to go away to this place ‘up north’, where it was quiet and there was only me to look after. There were lots of people around but none of them were physically asking me to do anything for them. I would come back and have all these grand plans to change lots of things that in my opinion had contributed to my overwhelm, and all of these changes were to be ‘implemented’ as quickly as possible. Yet the moment I walked though the door I would be faced with all that I had left behind. The way it usually ran was that I would have a major dummy-spit by the morning of day one – and usually before anyone had even left the house!

The Real Meaning of Healing

by Rowena Stewart, England

When I first met Serge Benhayon, I felt tired, frumpy and fat. At the time I considered myself to be a life-long student, practitioner and teacher of kinesiology, and ran a very successful kinesiology clinic with my partner. However, we were also both overweight, consumed too much alcohol, chocolate and coffee, worked too hard and argued a lot. Added to this I was pre-diabetic, had endometriosis, suffered from migraines, depression, had a slipped disc and underlying exhaustion. In short, I wasn’t very well.

I had, like plenty of other people in the world, a professional persona and a private one, and at times they were greatly at odds with one another. I knew that drinking alcohol wasn’t a great thing to do and would often vow to cut down on my intake, but every Friday night my partner and I would slump exhausted onto the sofa and out would come the wine and chocolate. It felt like a treat at the end of a long week.

In April 2006 a friend and colleague invited us to join a workshop given by a “very interesting man”. He shared a few pieces of intriguing information that seemed radically at odds with our current philosophies. We were interested in discovering more and signed up to go on a Sacred Esoteric Healing Level 1 course. Continue reading “The Real Meaning of Healing”

Letter to the Courier Mail: Misrepresentation of Universal Medicine and Denigration of Women

by Victoria Carter, Pottsville Beach, NSW  Australia

To editor-in-chief of News Qld, David Fagan & the editor of the Courier Mail, Michael Crutcher

Re: “New age ‘medicine’ of Serge Benhayon leaves trail of broken families”

I’m sure you have by now received countless responses regarding the scale of irresponsible journalism inherent in this article, let alone the sheer fabrications. Your writers, Josh Robertson & Liam Walsh, should they have set out to do any true research in the first place, would have found that allegations such as “cult” couldn’t be further from the actual truth. Clearly this ‘piece’ has one agenda only – to fill a ‘sensationalist’ quota in your publication, and intentionally or not, to continue a smear campaign initiated against Universal Medicine (UniMed) in recent times.

Pleasure in Simplicity

By Chris Baker

These notes were written by me last year when in northern Vietnam, visiting the hilltribe people near Sapa…

Looking out over the rice paddies of Thanh Phu village, I feel a touch of envy for the easy acceptance these people show for what is. Life here is uncluttered, without the need for new plasma TV’s and 16 valve urban 4WD’s. The Tay people I’m staying with and the h’Mong group just a few villages away at Lau Chai are so joyful with everyday life, it’s a pleasure to spend the day with them. We have much to learn about what it is about life that brings joy and contentment. Continue reading “Pleasure in Simplicity”
