“Can I Have That Guy’s (Serge Benhayon’s) Phone Number ?”

It was late 1999. My life had undergone major changes in the previous two years. My husband had died. Following his death, I had sold the business that we had started and run together for a decade. The business had been on the main street of town, making us very much a part of a small community. I just had to get up and go to work, and the world came through my front door. It was a wonderful segment in my life. And it was over. I was feeling displaced. I was menopausal. I was depressed. But I figured I had good reason to be so I wasn’t looking to fix it. I was just dragging myself around.

My daughter told me that she thought I should go see this guy who had come into her workplace. I don’t follow everyone’s suggestions, I assure you, but I do most often follow my daughter’s. And so I went. I arrived at his home sceptical, determined to keep my secrets close to my vest so as not to give this guy anything to work with – (he wouldn’t pull one over on me), and I was more than slightly irritated that I had to go through the motions of acting like I wanted to be “fixed” when I really didn’t care if I was or not.

An hour later, I walked out amazed – amazed that I could feel so totally different. My whole being was lighter, my body, my mind and my heart. What had happened? We had exchanged a few words, my contribution being that I was depressed, his contribution, almost entirely, a gentle laying on of hands. It was nothing short of a miracle. A couple of hours later, I was walking down the street in Byron Bay when a friend came up to me and said: “Wow! What’s happened to you? You look totally different”. My response, at that point, may have been, “I don’t know. I went and saw this guy named Serge (Benhayon) in Alstonville”. This scenario was to repeat itself many times over the next few weeks, usually resulting in my friends asking me for his phone number.

Eventually I started getting calls from people I didn’t actually know, but they were friends of a friend and had heard, “could I give them his phone number?” It was after a woman from Sydney called (who I had never met) and asked for his number that I called Serge to find out if it was ok to keep giving out his number. After all, he was running a tennis school, did he really have time for all these people? He said the lady from Sydney had already called him for an appointment. He seemed almost as surprised as I was about everyone asking for his number but he graciously said yes, to give out his number if it was asked for.

Over the next year or so, I would periodically go and see Serge for a ‘tune-up’. I doubt that I ever ‘recommended’ that anyone go to see Serge. I didn’t have to. They were clamouring to get his number. During this time, I didn’t really understand what was happening. I just knew an appointment with Serge Benhayon was life-changing in a very positive way.

Eventually, Serge started offering courses. The first one was called ‘Ki Energy’ and was held at the Ballina RSL. My daughter and I attended; there were maybe 20 participants. I still didn’t feel like I really ‘understood’ what was happening –  it defied logic, as I knew it – meaning something I could understand with my mind. And I didn’t have the confidence to think this was something I could do outside of the supervision of Serge Benhayon’s weekend workshop demonstrations. Contrary to what he was teaching, I was sure he was an extraordinary healer and that only he could perform these miracle healings. I never tried practising what I learned in a workshop – I only went because I was trying to figure out what Serge was doing.

Fast forward to 2003. There was a most unfortunate ‘incident’ in my life that left me deeply traumatised. I’m not trying to be secretive but what happened isn’t really relevant to the point of this sharing; the point is that I was suffering from post-traumatic stress. I was so distressed that it took me a couple of months to finally get myself to an appointment with Serge – again, it was at my daughter’s insistence that I went. That’s how messed up I was, I didn’t even think to go to Serge. Or maybe I was embarrassed to be such a mess after all he had done for me?

As anyone who knows Serge Benhayon would guess, I had another miracle healing. Well, almost. I definitely walked out of his clinic rooms a totally different person than when I walked in, but within a couple of weeks I was back. I told him that while I was greatly, enormously improved, I wasn’t back to the old me. I wasn’t the person I was before the incident. He gave me another esoteric healing. Again, I was greatly improved – but two weeks later I was back. (This was when you could still see Serge regularly, on fairly short notice – those days are long gone.)  When I went for the third session, I said, “I’m still not the old me. It is like there is scar tissue in me from the incident and I just can’t quite get on with things. I know you can fix this. Why aren’t you fixing it?”.

Serge said to me, “If I fix you completely, you will be forever running back here to get fixed up. And if not to me, you will be running off to some healer to try and make it better. It’s time for you to ‘get’ that you are the one who is responsible for healing yourself.” Whoa! This was devastating news! What? You mean I have to take responsibility for my own wellbeing? It was so much easier to just pay someone to do it for me.

Hard as it was to believe that this was true, Serge Benhayon had never lied to me. He had told me many things about myself that I didn’t think I knew at the time, yet when he told me, I knew instantly that it was true. He had never shown me anything but love and compassion; he always met me with understanding and with care. I had never felt judged no matter how many times I went or what my complaint was. So, I had to take on board what he was telling me. It was my responsibility to get well and stay well.

Thus began a deep relationship with myself that I had never had. I was 52 years old. I started to embrace the fact that the way I lived my life was the best medicine I could apply. I had a lot of beliefs and ideals that I had accumulated over a lifetime – I started to work with these first. I didn’t even consider dietary changes or any changes to my body. Being a very cerebral person, I wanted to start with what was going on in my head… listening to my body would come some years later.

I only saw Serge on rare occasions after these sessions in 2003. Even though I now accepted my responsibility, I still fell off the tracks once in a while. I last saw Serge, for a private session, in early 2009. That was one of those sessions that was as revelatory as the 2003 session, and a matter for another blog. I have attended almost all talks and lectures given by Serge and the majority of the Australian workshops and courses.

I have never felt as healthy as I do today. So why do I keep attending? Because, I learn something new, every time. I learn about why the world is so chaotic. I learn that I’m not the only one who thinks the world is wacky. I learn about how to deepen the relationship with myself. I learn how to live me in a world that wants me to conform to mass consciousness.

I will be forever giving thanks for the privilege of knowing Serge Benhayon and his family, and for the good fortune of living in Northern NSW where I can have sessions from practitioners who have trained at Universal Medicine, and where I can participate in courses and workshops offered by Universal Medicine. And, if for some unforeseen reason, any of that changes, well, I will still be giving thanks because I have learned how to be my own teacher, my own best friend. I have learned how to love myself and that’s something I didn’t learn from my parents or at school, or at church.  It took Serge to teach me that.

  1. Gayle your story of love is inspiring, so simple when one discovers the crucial importance of looking after oneself, or to self-love. I have also learned, through the benefit of attending Universal Medicine courses/presentations etc. over the years, that when there is ownership or command, i.e. of oneself (as opposed to being owned or commanded by the outside world), then there is value: that we value and cherish more what we own, and compromise less on this the more this value is developed. The more we love, the less we compromise on this love.

    1. Very well said Zofia, it is so hugely empowering to take responsibility and ownership for our own well-being. It literally brings the power we so often give away to others, back to us.

    2. Beautifully said Zofia. What Gayle has shared here is gold. When we learn that we are responsible for our own choices and what happens in our lives is a consequence of those choices, we start to consider how we live our lives in a completley different way. And as you say, the more we take responsibility for how we live, the more care we take to look after ourselves which in turn deepens how much we value who we are. I too have learned this from attending Universal medicine workshops and courses, and from having sessions from practitioners of the Universal medicine modalities. Without the support that I have received from Serge Benhayon and these practitioners, I can’t imagine where I would be today.

      1. Yes its all about taking responsibility for what has eventuated, even if things look unfair from the surface it always comes back to something that is to be learnt and developed within ourselves.

    3. So true Zofia, taking responsibility for ourselves and what we are choosing in each moment as opposed to looking outside to be filled. When we do this we are anybody’s and don’t stand solidly in who we are.

  2. I feel deeply moved reading your words Gayle. There is a nodding deep in my body as I too know what a blessing and how life-changing it is to have met Serge Benhayon.

  3. A beautiful deep appreciation to Serge Benhayon. A truly great man who continues to inspire many with his dedication to humanity and his love and steadiness to living life from the divine depths of who we are. I now know the truth of who I am.

    1. Beautifully said Marcia, it is through the reflection of the love and truth that Serge Benhayon lives that our whole family is living with much more vitality and in true relationship.

  4. This is a beautiful piece of writing Gayle, I particularly liked how you stated you were feeling displaced, menopausal and depressed but figured you had good reason to be that. That statement alone sums up nearly all of us as we all tend to have a justification for our behaviour. And not trying to be harsh but sometimes the bigger the tragedy = the bigger reason not to live a true life.

    1. Crazy isn’t it that many of us use the ‘bad things’ that have happened to us as excuses for not living fully, descending into the poor me pit and expecting others to haul us out. We climbed the ladder down, its still there so we can climb it up too. That ladder is self responsibility.

      1. Great comment Catherine. Self responsibility is key to how our lives will be. We can either choose it and live an amazingly full and vital life, in which we can inspire and support others in a miriad of ways, or we can not choose it and stay in a pit of misery and self loathing, dependant on others to take pity on us and/or to make us ‘happy’. Having been in that place myself once before, I now know which one I am choosing, thanks to the inspirational work of Serge Benhayon.

  5. Thank you for sharing your discovery of Serge Benhayon, Gayle. I, too, am very grateful for all the changes that have occurred in my life since my involvement with Universal Medicine. To keep evolving as we are meant to be is the best way of saying thank you to him.

  6. Thank you for sharing your amazing story Gayle. It is inspirational. I am responsible for my own wellbeing and I am blessed to have found my way to northern NSW, the heart of Universal Medicine Land where Serge Benhayon events and Universal Medicine Practitioners are so easy to access.

  7. Thankyou Gayle for sharing so honestly how our lives can be transformed from feeling the overwhelm and struggle, to continually evolving in so many different and amazing ways simply because we open our hearts to the truth that we all are responsible for healing ourselves. Great blog.

  8. It was wonderful to read your blog and appreciate again the early days of when I first started having sessions with Serge Benhayon. I too experienced the session where I discovered that I was responsible for my own healing. Although scary at the time as I didn’t feel equipped to do this, I also felt how much love and trust there was from Serge that I could do it and it would be all the more powerful if I claimed this myself. How empowering it is to be treated with equality.

  9. This is beautiful Gayle. A gorgeous story of meeting a beautiful man who inspired you to truly meet you. I can certainly add my name to what is probably a huge list of people who have been inspired in a very similar way by Serge Benhayon, and who as a result, live lives with so much joy today.

    1. I agree Katerina, my name is on that list too. The inspiration that Serge Benhayon and my fellow students are continuously giving, supports me to take full and true responsibility of my life in which I now can find the joy I live in every day.

      1. Listening to Serge Benhayon’s presentations are music to the soul. After 8 years of attending Universal Medicine workshops and presentations the depth of insight offered never wavers and I gain new insights that support my health and deepen all my relationships.

  10. Gail I loved reading your blog. I too have had the enormous privilege of healing sessions with Serge Benhayon; he was recommended to me by a friend when they realised I’d moved into the same neighbourhood. The meeting was life changing in the best possible way as I too have learned that I am responsible for my own life and have within me all that is needed to do so.

  11. It’s so true there’s an expectation/belief that a practitioner is the one that fixes a problem and that’s what they are paid for, not realising how disempowering that is. As you say, Gayle, what Serge Benhayon offers is a polar opposite – to start considering self-responsibility and learn to become my own teacher has been the greatest gift in bringing true healing for me.

    1. So very true Fumiyo, I know I used to think that paying to go and see a practitioner meant I was paying for them to effectively take away my problems with no consideration or thought to how I was living. Taking responsibility is key to beginning to truly heal. It is also empowering knowing that we can and do heal ourselves.

    2. I have never met a therapist outside Universal medicine where they say,’Its no good for me to keep fixing you, you can fix yourself now. Most are just happy to keep taking the money!

  12. This is a lovely article read, very playful and a celebration of Serge Benhayon and also your experience getting to know and love yourself. “I started to embrace the fact that the way I lived my life was the best medicine I could apply.” There came a point in my life when I found that I wanted to look after myself more, I found this to be deeply supportive to my well being ‘the best medicine’. Through caring for myself more, there is so much to enjoy and celebrate because fundamentally it is something that is built by ourselves, no one can take it away or build it for us. It has felt very empowering to learn to care for myself.

    1. It is a very liberating moment when one connects to the fact that they have the power to heal and choose how their life is and how their relationships are. How our body feels is an accumulation of all of our choices both past and present. Makes for a great opportunity to create and live the life that has always been wanted, nothing to stop this from happening as it all comes down to us.

  13. I loved reading about the early days of Serge Benhayon and how you met him Gayle. I have known Serge Benhayon now for around 5 years and what he has presented to me about life has been very supportive at least. To truly take responsibility for the fact that everything I do has an effect on myself but also on everyone around me — that is a huge responsibility but very self empowering as well as it goes both ways. Responsibility seems a dirty word as it most often is associated with a negative effect but it is also about the fact that we ourselves have the power to change in the other way, bring more love and care into our lives which has a healing effect on ourselves and everyone around.

  14. I love the sharing Gayle…especially this part…

    “I still didn’t feel like I really ‘understood’ what was happening – it defied logic, as I knew it”

    It captures so well the reality of what is it like to study with Universal Medicine and to receive esoteric healing sessions. There is part of you that is so sure you had it worked out, until what you feel from this work is so true and begins to make so much sense, even though at times it is back to front to how you saw life beforehand.

    1. Joel that was and is my experience too. At first my mind was completely unable to grapple with what was presented but my heart totally understood that for the first time the world was making sense in a very logical, natural way.

  15. I love this blog Gayle, thank you for sharing your amazing return to you. Its almost incomprehensible that one ordinary person can make such an extraordinary impact on so many of whom he comes into contact with, (that is of course unless you are one of those people). To be inspired to take responsibility for each choice we make to live in harmony, is felt far and wide, and brings with it a love unparalleled.

  16. Thank you Gayle,
    Very inspiring to hear your story, It is amazing what happens when we take responsibility for our lives you are a glorious living example of what happens when we start listening to our truth and get our minds out of the way to follow the wisdom of the inner heart.

  17. Gayle- I enjoyed reading your blog and share your deep appreciation for Serge Benhayon and all that Universal Medicine offers. Taking responsibility for your self and your own healing is something I have learnt in recent years too – at first I found it all a bit confronting but with time, building that trust within myself, is the greatest gift in the world.

  18. I loved reading this history Gayle of how you came to be with Universal Medicine and got to know Serge. It really is amazing how his ‘career’ as practitioner started off – and has continued. No advertising is ever necessary for the services Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon provide. Those associated are living and loving proof of what is possible when living from our innermost is chosen, and consistently so. I cannot thank Serge enough for the commitment he has had. His lifetime is one that is marked in history – not just for the man he is, but for everything that has come forth has a result. Humanity is in for a change.

    1. I agree Amelia, one day history will recognise the gift that humanity has been offered in Serge Benhayon. He is the inspiration for many thousands now in his absolute dedication and non-stop service and commitment to mankind, to all people, every minute of the day, holding steady the light of truth in a world that has denied it for too long.

  19. ‘Serge said to me, “If I fix you completely, you will be forever running back here to get fixed up. And if not to me, you will be running off to some healer to try and make it better. It’s time for you to ‘get’ that you are the one who is responsible for healing yourself.” Whoa! This was devastating news! What? You mean I have to take responsibility for my own wellbeing? It was so much easier to just pay someone to do it for me.’
    Gale when I read this part it has been a timely reminder that a part of me just wants someone else to fix me on somedays. These days are not often but when they swing into place I get a reminder that my way of living needs refining and scrutiny so that my way of being has a loving impact on the world not me draining it. I am responsible for me.

  20. I absolutely love what you have written Gayle and it resonated deeply with me. I have also been touched by the humbleness and love of Serge Benhayon and he has taught me (and thousands of other equal sons of god) also how to be in the world and to be ‘my own best friend’. Your appreciation of him is deeply felt.

  21. I hate/love this quote “It’s time for you to ‘get’ that you are the one who is responsible for healing yourself.” I can feel that up to now I have been relying on someone else to fix me!! and yes it is good to get help from a practitioner, but I must say that I wasn’t trying too hard with food and would jump from one addiction to another. Also it is also good to appreciate all the way I have come from but also to realise that there is still a fair way to go.

  22. Gayle, this blog is so awesome. I so related to the part where you wrote “I was embarrassed to be such a mess after all he had done for me?” as recently I have felt this too. I had collapsed in a heap, and couldn’t understand why I was the way I was after all this time and all the workshops that I had attended. But within ten minutes in our session I was back to feeling me, in fact, feeling a me that was more me than I had felt before. I didn’t hold this feeling, as within a week I was back to feeling messy but not so much as before. It was time to ‘heal’ myself … there was much more detail that I needed to consider, on how I was living my life. This is still unfolding.

    1. Yes Mas it’s amazing how we feel we are a mess and going backwards, but in fact the inner strength has become a foundation that is easy to come back to with a bit more attention to detail in the way we live.

  23. Yep, Serge is one man who knows how to love you more than you love yourself. And when you feel that absolute love in its purity and truth often enough, you cant help but realise, that you too are that grand and forever love. It’s just a given.

  24. Gayle, thank you for sharing your journey in building a deeper relationship with you. Rather than giving our power away and asking a practitioner to ‘fix’ things for us, taking responsibility for ourselves and our choices is very empowering and we learn so much more from each experience when we do.

  25. Serge Benhayon draws from an endless well, such that there is no end to the wisdom that he offers to those of us who are willing to accept it. He lives in such a way that his finger is on the pulse of all humanity, so every course is entirely fresh, current and relevant to us all.
    How can one man do this? How can one man be such an exemplar of love, truth and consistency?
    Simply it is in the way he lives. He offers us the living example of what is possible when we dedicate ourselves to true life.

    1. I absolutely agree Rachel. I have seen him constantly making adjustments – in fact he openly shares the adjustments and why he has put them in place which offers us the opportunity to learn. My sense of the possibilities open to humanity has expanded from experiencing his dedicated way of life.

    2. So True Rachel, I am amazed that he has been saying ‘love yourself’ since 1999 in so many different ways, each deeply insightful relevant and revelatory.

  26. From all the people I have heard share of their experiences of having sessions with Serge Benhayon the common denominator being expressed by all is how extraordinary their experience has been in relation to how they feel after the session. So much lighter and connected to who they are and that what ever is discussed in the session is what they have known deep inside, meaning no surprises, no fixes but is exactly what is needed in way of connecting more to themselves. This is true healing igniting of the fire within.

  27. This is beautiful Gayle. How brilliant to find self responsibility so lovingly. We have such amazing power within us to heal and to change and to learn to love.

  28. Beautifully expressed Gayle, this part really stood out for me – ‘Thus began a deep relationship with myself that I had never had. I was 52 years old. I started to embrace the fact that the way I lived my life was the best medicine I could apply.’ – Serge Benhayon lives in a way that is deeply inspiring for us all and through Universal Medicine presentations we experience a way to truly heal and live the love we naturally are.

  29. We are the ones responsible for healing ourselves. This is true to its core and as Serge Benhayon so lovingly presented to you Gayle, once we start to take responsibility for how we are living, we understand that nothing outside of us is the answer and that we hold the keys to making choices that are loving. Universal Medicine has been the first and only organisation that has made me aware of this whilst at the same time never telling me what to do but rather presenting the possibility of a different way. To know I hold the power of healing myself, is to appreciate the quality of who I really am – and everyone else equally.

  30. So inspiring, Gayle, to read about your life-story and these two remarkable points of deep changes in your life. The first one, when starting to re-connect to yourself and your soul, supported from the first session and then when you started to get truly responsible for your wellbeing through making self-loving choices. Serge Benhayon leads the way to heal and reawaken for ourselves and each other in an incredibly loving manner.

  31. Love it Gayle – “What? You mean I have to take responsibility for my own wellbeing? It was so much easier to just pay someone to do it for me.” I had to laugh at your reaction here, I had this too… but what a joy to take our power back and begin the return to self-love and nurturing of ourselves.

  32. I love your sharing Gayle and I particularly love that Serge didn’t allow you to rely on him but that he supported you to be empowered and make the necessary changes to your life. It shows that it is never about him but always about what is really needed.

  33. Gayle this is a lovely blog to read ‘I will be forever giving thanks for the privilege of knowing Serge Benhayon and his family,’ We all have a responsibility to make our own changes to support ourselves, learning how to love ourselves is a great healing in itself.

  34. Lovely testament to the work that Serge Benhayon does Gayle, thank you. The message that we are all responsible for ourselves is a key one and one we have to accept at some point. What a blessing to be shown the love that is within, rather than pursue it endlessly and fruitlessly outside of us.

  35. A beautiful sharing – thankyou Gayle. “I have never felt as healthy as I do today. So why do I keep attending? Because, I learn something new, every time. I learn about why the world is so chaotic. I learn that I’m not the only one who thinks the world is wacky. I learn about how to deepen the relationship with myself. I learn how to live me in a world that wants me to conform to mass consciousness.” I agree with you totally. Taking back responsibility for our health and lives is so important. Knowing that by making new choices we can affect not only ourselves but those around us is so powerful. Huge appreciation to Serge Benhayon for showing us there is another way…..

  36. Thank you for sharing the following “Serge said to me, “If I fix you completely, you will be forever running back here to get fixed up. And if not to me, you will be running off to some healer to try and make it better. It’s time for you to ‘get’ that you are the one who is responsible for healing yourself.” Whoa! This was devastating news! What? You mean I have to take responsibility for my own wellbeing? It was so much easier to just pay someone to do it for me”. Most of the world thinks that it is someone else’s responsibility to fix them. Lucky for you Serge Benhayon didn’t.

  37. I like the matter of fact way you re-count your experiences Gayle, how you felt at the time and the effect of the healing sessions you had with Serge Benhayon. Serge Benhayon could be said to be ahead of his times especially when it comes to the future of medicine and healing. How rarely does a health practitioner hand back the responsibility to the patient after doing their part and say “the rest is up to you” with love and confidence? With no investment in wanting you to return and spend more money and with the understanding that ultimately we heal ourselves.

    1. This is a great lesson Deanne, learning that healing is about allowing another person the space to become aware and make the choice to heal themselves, not trying to fix anything for them, nor being in any way invested in them making the choice to heal themselves. Simply it is about offering the reflection and the space such that they have free will (unhindered by their own ill-momentum) to choose for themselves what they will, and what they will not be in that moment.

  38. Thank you for this Gayle, it is so true – a beautiful revelation to realise that we are the ones responsible for our healing, for a life of self-harm, and therefore harm to others, or for a life committing to evolving back to the light we hold deep within awaiting for us to return.

    1. and for a life committed to holding steady that same light, so that others too may know their own light by its reflection. This is true service.

  39. “You mean I have to take responsibility for my own wellbeing?” This is a fundamental difference within Esoteric Healing as presented and practiced by Serge Benhayon from all other healing modalities and is why true miracles occur.

  40. I love how you have so clearly named the responsibility we have, and need to choose to truly bring our own healing. Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine can support anyone and everyone, but the support is in holding you in the knowing that you are absolutely capable and empowered to make the choices that are required.

  41. I loved reading your sharing Gayle. What stands out for me is, that we can only heal ourselves and when I remember how often I have given my power to somebody, in the hope he or she can heal me, unbelievable. We can empower ourselves by making more self-loving choices and life will change accordingly – how we live is medicine.

  42. Gayle this is such an inspirational sharing, and one that many of us can learn from. “I have learned how to be my own teacher, my own best friend. I have learned how to love myself and that’s something I didn’t learn from my parents or at school, or at church. It took Serge Benhayon to teach me that.” To be able to fully understand that we all have the tools we need within us in order to know what our bodies need to look after ourselves responsibly, is one of the greatest gifts we can receive, and it is thanks to Serge and his unrelenting commitment to himself and all of humanity that so many have realised that this is possible.

  43. It certainly is a defining moment when we come into full awareness that we save/heal ourselves and that no-one can do that for us, when the wall is right there before us beckoning us to dismantle it – the absolute knowing that we actually can do this for ourselves can have varying effects but the truth remains that we absolutely can make the changes to being love. Thank you Gayle.

  44. I love that Gail, “I learned how to love myself”. What an amazing journey commenced when you began to take back responsibility for yourself.

  45. A very inspiring read Gail, particularly I love what you have written here;
    “I will still be giving thanks because I have learned how to be my own teacher, my own best friend. I have learned how to love myself and that’s something I didn’t learn from my parents or at school, or at church. It took Serge to teach me that”.

  46. It takes so long to get an appointment with Serge and people attend his workshops from all over the world, and this has happened all from word of mouth. This occurs because what he presents is true and very effective

  47. This is a beautiful sharing Gayle of the steps you took to look at your life and the responsibility we all play in how we move forward or get stuck in old patterns and beliefs we hold. Loving who we are and caring for ourselves with such tenderness and honesty really does open up a whole new world of learning and exploring . Making the choice to be responsible for ourselves is like opening a door to a new world, one that is full of glorious connections, joy and truth, sounds pretty cool to me.

  48. Well said Gayle – ‘I have attended almost all talks and lectures given by Serge and the majority of the Australian workshops and courses….I have never felt as healthy as I do today. So why do I keep attending? Because, I learn something new, every time. I learn about why the world is so chaotic. I learn that I’m not the only one who thinks the world is wacky. I learn about how to deepen the relationship with myself. I learn how to live me in a world that wants me to conform to mass consciousness.’

  49. Beautifully said Gayle – ‘I have attended almost all talks and lectures given by Serge and the majority of the Australian workshops and courses….I have never felt as healthy as I do today. So why do I keep attending? Because, I learn something new, every time. I learn about why the world is so chaotic. I learn that I’m not the only one who thinks the world is wacky. I learn about how to deepen the relationship with myself. I learn how to live me in a world that wants me to conform to mass consciousness.’

  50. Reading your blog at the start of my day has been just lovely, I love how your warmth honesty and love is expressed in your writing, Gayle. Like you, I too have learned from Serge ‘how to be my own teacher, my own best friend’…. a most invaluable lesson to assist us on our journey through life.

  51. Serge Benhayon is definitely an extraordinary person. I have also found what feels like miraculous results from the healing modalities he has developed and offered in workshops, and as practised in his clinic. Previously, I feel like I had tried every modality known to man, but I always eventually ended up exactly where I was before treatments. The combination of modalities based on true energetic science, and Universal Medicine’s philosophy of self love and self care (i.e. personal responsibility) is working beautifully for me.

  52. Wanting or needing others to do the work for us is really selling ourselves short. Sure responsibility gets a bad wrap as the word has been used for menial tasks, but to take responsibility for our health and wellbeing really means that we learn and get to know ourselves on a whole new and much deeper level. Who’d want to miss out on that?! It’s so amazing and supportive to have practitioners to go to for the fine tuning when needed – but most of the work is in our day to day lives, like you discovered Gayle.

  53. Thank you for sharing the process of your healing Gayle. You’ve offered beautiful details that could inspire anyone who reads to know that at any point in life we can change the way we are with ourselves and our relationship with who we truly are within.

  54. There are so many miracle stories about the support Serge Benhayon has offered to thousands of people. The greatest miricle is that we are all inspired to re-claim our ability to heal and evolve ourselves, and that we don’t need anyone else to fix us. This is deeply empowering.

  55. This blog is pure gold, so real, so revealing and so honest. When you think about someone you know saying how different you look after one session with Serge Benhayon, makes you realise the power of Esoteric Healing.

  56. I love this blog Gayle! So real, so inspiring, so accessible. It shows us that all is energy and as Serge Benhayon has said . . .all is because of energy. What a Godsend Serge and all the modalities he has brought through are! An Esoteric Healing can correct the energy but it is up to us to maintain the correction through our own day to day moment to moment choices.

  57. The absolutely beautiful thing about Serge Benhayon is that he is fully aware that we heal ourselves and that it is impossible for another to heal us. It is liberating to know that we have the power within ourselves to heal and that while we can get the support of others we have to do it for ourselves.

  58. Gayle thank you so much for your honest sharing. You wrote: “What? You mean I have to take responsibility for my own wellbeing?” That question alone should be printed in big letters and should hang in every medical practice or hospital just to let everybody know that they can play a big role in their true healing.

  59. Thank you Gayle for a very beautiful sharing, the miracles that Serge and Esoteric modalities bring to us are just amazing and life changing as your blog describes, the point is that we heal ourselves when we take responsibility for our choices and learn to self love.

  60. Gayle great to hear about your background and the changes to you and your life since meeting Serge Benhayon. By learning to take responsibility and learning to love yourself you have turned your life around and now are a living walking inspiration of how life can be.

  61. I love that although we are not usually taught growing up the importance of developing a loving relationship with ourselves or how to go about this, there is no doubt that it is incredibly powerful and life changing once embraced. The world and everyone in it would be vastly different if we were taught this from young, but as you have shown, it is never too late.

  62. Why (like you Gayle), do I keep attending presentations by Serge Benhayon, in person when I can, but these days mainly via webcast? – because also like you “I learn something new, every time”, and many times I am also presented with something that deep down inside me I feel that I always have known. This unimposing man has helped me to make sense of a world that for most of my life hadn’t made sense, and introduced me to a way of living that I never thought was possible. Every day I celebrate the fact that this amazing man’s name made it all the way from Alstonville to Auckland nearly 12 years ago.

  63. The world is certainly wacky, so much craziness that could be simply avoided. I too now have a deeper understanding as to why it is so, I have learnt so much attending talks by Serge Benhayon.

  64. Brilliant Gayle. Blind Freddy can see that the world is a mess, but Serge is the first person I have met who doesn’t hold back in speaking the whole truth of the mess we are in, and that we hold the absolute power of how to be in this world without contributing to the mess but rather live the truth of who we are… herein the responsibility we all hold, but may not wish to see completely.

  65. Having a session with Serge Benhayon has changed many people’s lives and I know that your story is just one of many. It is as though this knowingness in us that there is another and true way gets rekindled – and that is only the beginning.

  66. This story goes back to 1999 and while for me in 2017 is seems a distant memory the message is the same, “I started to embrace the fact that the way I lived my life was the best medicine I could apply.” Serge Benhayon from an early point supported people to stand on their own two feet when it came to what was going on around them. Some years later the depth of support has continued and evolved if you like but the dedication is still the same, we are all part of any healing. It’s not someone doing it for you but more your hand that’s important in any true healing and in fact that’s a healing in itself. The more we can continue to see our part the smoother things become. It doesn’t get to a hands off approach but always hands on and when you live a true quality in this way it begins to give the same back. In other words have you ever noticed how things spiral at times out of control. The depth and speed of the spiral is set from how you have lived prior, so it simple change how you live in each moment and this is what will be there when you need it. Don’t live with any care and you can expect that level of care back.

  67. Beautifully said Gayle, a session with Serge Benhayon is life-changing I agree, it certainly was for me, profoundly so. Understanding that self-responsibility is essential if we are to truly heal, and not give our power away to another thinking they can do it for us, is key. An amazing example here you’ve shared thank you.

  68. Responsibility is such a key foundation in our lives. Learning that this has nothing to do with being responsible for others and everything to do with taking responsibility for our selves is life changing.

  69. As a practitioner, I can really relate to this, it is not about the fixing…people come to me saying this hurts, I want it gone…and many times practitioners will try and receive the pain….now it is awesome to offer some support through body work concerning pain, but the pain is there for a reason, something to look at, a sign to go deeper, fixing is not a long term shift, looking at the root of why these things occur, that is healing.

  70. I love reading about the times when Serge Benhayon first started, even though I did not know him, I know just how precious that time was. I have known Serge for over 10 years and it is a complete blessing to know him. What you shared here ‘Serge said to me, “If I fix you completely, you will be forever running back here to get fixed up. And if not to me, you will be running off to some healer to try and make it better. It’s time for you to ‘get’ that you are the one who is responsible for healing yourself.’ is a testimony of the integrity that Serge has; in that it is not to do with him ‘fixing’ people as many other people in the field of ‘healing’ may like to believe but ultimately our own health and well-being is our responsibility and in our own hands. This is something we all need to learn and truly be aware of, Serge was being extremely responsible and loving in saying this to you.

  71. Thankyou Gayle, I never cease to enjoy reading this blog – I look forward to more of your writing. My first workshop with Serge came at a time when I felt I had already searched high and low for the truth and was willing to give up – he was my last ditch effort before throwing in the towel. Not only was he speaking the truth but his modalities also worked (I had tried everything with no long term healing or change). He is an extraordinary, yet ordinary person – there must be 1000’s of us now like you Gayle who have received immense life changing benefits from Serge’s support.

  72. To learn to love yourself, what a gift Gayle to receive and to allow. Like you I and many others have received this gift with the teaching of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. It’s been quite a journey but one I would not forego for anything, I’ve come to a depth of appreciation and love in myself which has utterly changed my life. I am forever grateful for having met Serge and thankful for my own good sense to listen and understand that there is another way to live and how I live is the best medicine of all, for as you say Gayle without this we are forever at the mercy of the world that wants us to conform at the expense of the love we all are. That is true freedom.

  73. I loved reading this Gayle. It just goes to show how unimposing and non-judgemental Serge Benhayon is that you continued for several years to avoid responsibility, but also how deeply inspiring he is that when the penny dropped, you were able to turn this around and begin to truly love and care for yourself, and will continue to do so no matter what. “And, if for some unforeseen reason, any of that changes, well, I will still be giving thanks because I have learned how to be my own teacher, my own best friend. I have learned how to love myself and that’s something I didn’t learn from my parents or at school, or at church. It took Serge to teach me that.”

  74. Yes, it was Serge Benhayon that gave me the keys to myself and how to live life to its fullest. It has taken me 11 dedicated years since coming to Universal Medicine on working on myself to heal my withdrawal and contraction to life. Now, it’s all about living me in full to the plan and fulfill my purpose in life. As Serge advised Gayle – “It’s time for you to ‘get’ that you are the one who is responsible for healing yourself.”

  75. I love how you took the step to take care of yourself. There is so much we can bring when we truly start to care about and love ourselves. It is so very simple an something the world so very much needs.

  76. Gayle, I cannot believe that I have not come across this blog before! I love how you have shared your story, your experiences. So simple and straight forwards, so beautiful. And when you said “I doubt that I ever ‘recommended’ that anyone go to see Serge. I didn’t have to.” – you sure did not have to as just you walking as you was the reminder and reflection of Heaven that we all are blessed with and that Serge has very gently and gradually been the one to share with us all as we have been ready for it.

    1. Like a game of ‘reverse’ dominoes only the little bricks are made of Truth and we are here not to knock each other down, but to pick each other up!

  77. It is such an extraordinary gift to be met by a practitioner, like Serge Benhayon who doesn’t try to fix you. Not because they don’t care but because they know who you are in your entirety, knowing that you are already amazing and just moving and living in way that doesn’t support that all to be let out. It is also a rare gift to be reminded that our healing is in our hands, that we are responsible and no one but ourselves can ‘fix’ anything. This puts a stop to looking outside for help or for blame and brings our focus back where it belongs – with ourselves.

  78. It is amazing that the image of I want to be fixed may get in the way when you take a session with an amazing healing practitioner to the point that the image does not allow to appreciate the package we have just received.

  79. Wow and what a Teacher he is Gayle! I also wanted someone to fix me and make me better and didn’t believe I could ever do it for myself… until I met and heard Serge Benhayon talk about responsibility and that we are the only ones who can heal ourselves.

  80. What a blessing that you went to see Serge Benhayon all those years ago, with just one session you were inspiring many.

  81. Yes Gayle, it took Serge Benhayon to teach me, and many more people too, ‘ I will still be giving thanks because I have learned how to be my own teacher, my own best friend. I have learned how to love myself and that’s something I didn’t learn from my parents or at school, or at church. It took Serge to teach me that.’

  82. Taking responsibility for our own wellbeing can at first seem like the last choice we want to make especially when getting someone else to make us feel better is so widely punted.

  83. Being responsible for one’s own wellbeing is the only way to live truly health and joyful life. Support from medical practitioners’s is essential, but this is within the framework of self responsibility first and foremost.

  84. Love this call to self-responsibility and the self-empowerment that comes with it. Learning that we are the result of every choice we have made in each moment, brings a whole new light to the moment we are in right now.

  85. I love how you were shown and inspired Gayle, to take responsibility for your own healing and to learn to love yourself. That is the power of true healing – knowing and feeling that no one can ‘fix’ us – and actually there is no fixing to be done, just a letting go of everything that doesn’t truly belong in and with us. Healing is about getting the support to enable that to happen – a choice that only we can make for ourselves.

  86. The fact that we are responsible for our own healing is the massive bombshell many avoid facing. Personally though, accepting this and living in loving support of my body to the very best of my ability feels so very different than how I had previously lived. Not only do I now say I enjoy my life, I do.

  87. Living taking responsibility for my own healing doesn’t mean I am walking alone. What it does mean is that I live my life, I love myself and I access any support that I need. Part of my taking responsibility has meant that over the last couple of years I have had many tests to learn where my body is at physically, and have begun to support it in ways I would never have done previously. Some of what I have discovered, if left unattended to, would have caused physical problems before long. I am grateful that I have taken the initiative and implemented the care that was needed.

  88. I feel very inspired by reading your blog today Gayle. Now of course Serge Benhayon has treated thousands of people and there must be thousands doing his courses too. The courses are not only for professional therapists, doctors, nurses or health practitioners they are for everyone and they allow us all to begin to take a deeper responsibility for our own health and well being and then to support others to do the same.
