Presenters? I’ve Seen A Few – But Only One Has Offered Something Real

by Gail Fuller, Byron Bay, Australia, Justice of the Peace; Director, Byron Coastal Real Estate

What a relief it is to come to Universal Medicine, an organisation that presents simple, commonsense information that actually supports you as a human being in all sectors of your life. Over the years I have attended numerous corporate management conferences, corporate health talks, new-age presentations and motivational speeches with some of the best speakers from around the world. There is one thing they all have in common: they excite, motivate and rev you up, but do not offer any long-term, practical tools of substance you can implement in your life. You normally go home with a book by the author that you never read. You do not see anything physically that is, in essence, an example of it working. They speak ‘at’ you, as though you are lacking or less; and if you just ‘do THIS or THAT, you will be great’ and (of course) rich in 12 months – just like them. Never do they consider that the way you live your life, and the associations that you keep, have an effect on the outcome of these actions.

It is like writing motivational words on a blackboard each day and reading them, hoping that something dramatic will change, when actually all you are doing is reading words on a blackboard and not changing the way you live.

Another example is people designing homes using ancient principles to attract wealth into their lives – they follow the book’s instructions, place the symbol, mirror or rock in the wealth sector of their home, and pray that their finances will mysteriously change – all the while never looking at or taking responsibility for the money they are spending. If it worked, we would all be millionaires.

We constantly give our power away looking for an easy solution, a quick fix from another, and then blame them when it does not work out. We create our own destiny, and it is hard at times to get honest with ourselves about what we have been up to and are trying to get away with.

So what’s different about Universal Medicine? Firstly, the organisation is run professionally and is very simple and easy to interact with. They present the fact that only you can make change for you, only you can choose what you allow in your life, only you can take responsibility for what has happened in your life as you have grown up and lived it. Your actions and intentions make change, not dreams.

What does it present? It presents a way of living that supports you in making truer choices on a practical level. Yes, it presents eating healthy food and undertaking healthy exercise levels, and looking after your body, heart and mind and relationships with others.

It reflects an understanding of life. It presents that you need a healthy body to support you, and if you continue to bludgeon it with alcohol, drugs, poor food and emotional turmoil, then of course it will break down. Any intelligent person would not expect a different result.

At what point did we decide for ourselves that going to work, paying taxes and bringing up our children deserves a reward of abuse, instead of love and appreciation for the great life we are living and inspiring the next generation to grow into?

What’s wrong with being sensible, with ourselves and others, and becoming aware of the impact we have on the planet and other human beings? Some might say it’s boring, but hey, you certainly stand out in the crowd in a positive way when you do.

It’s one of life’s great privileges to know and listen to Serge Benhayon and the wisdom he imparts for all. He is but a custodian of simple common sense, beautifully expressed and felt in every meeting.

Of all the presenters I have seen (and know personally) on the financial and well-being/health circuits, he is the only one who demonstrates the highest levels of consistency, support, ethics and integrity; his business and staff offer the same. As far as I’m concerned, Serge Benhayon is unique – he holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity.

  1. In your words Gail: ‘simple, common sense, beautifully expressed’. It is up to each and everyone of us to choose to make the loving choices for ourselves, and to take responsibility for our lives.

  2. Thanks Gail. I too have been to many, many workshops, presentations etc over the last 20 years where they promise wealth and untold happiness if you follow the way they do it. Of course nothing really changed because I kept going to the next one and next one still looking for the same thing. I too have found that what Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine presents is simple common sense. The wealth and untold happiness I have found is actually the allowing myself to just be me and the taking care of myself to a very deep level. Finally I’ve found something that can be practised consistently and easily.

    1. Well said Gail, the many workshops I also attended with no change until I came to Universal Medicine and it is so easy to see that this works. It works because it’s about each and every one of us taking responsibility for our own well being, not expecting it to be done for us. It’s quite simple really.

  3. Beautifully expressed Gail, “what’s wrong with being sensible, with ourselves and with others” – I love that point- such common sense and, for all of us, a loving responsibility to do so.

  4. Beautiful Gail, so precisely put and I agree with all you have said, especially your last sentence, “As far as I’m concerned, Serge Benhayon is unique – he holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity”. To use a Vietnamese expression “Same, same”

  5. Well said, Gail – that the essence of change relies upon oneself and not upon someone, some book or some gimmick doing it for you and that is what Universal Medicine presents.

  6. Gail I love your post, I did have a chuckle. I’ve done all the courses, read all of the books and put the rock in the wealth corner of my house and always I asked, “What now?”, because nothing truely changed. Having attended UniMed presentations for 7 years and put into practise the common-sense information, my life has turned around – I am the healthiest, most alive and most solid in myself than I have ever been. And its been simple – no ra-ra, no rev ups, just simple steps to living life and being me.

  7. Before I came across Serge and Universal Medicine I used to observe how we as a humanity in general just want a quick fix. If there was a viagra for all our woes we’d all be on it. I like the motivational words on blackboard example you gave Gail. It reminded me of a joke I heard long time ago.
    A guy is fishing and he catches a gold fish. He is about to cook it but the fish goes: Please, please don’t eat me, tell me one wish you have and I’ll make sure it comes true, anything, you name it, I’ll make it come true, but you must let me go.
    So he does – he wishes to win millions on lottery and he lets the fish swim back.
    Months later he is fishing again and catches the same fish.
    Aha, he goes, this time you are going in the frying pan.
    But why, asks the fish.
    Because you did not fulfil my wish as you had promised.
    And the fish says back: You should have bought the ticket, you eejit!

  8. This is a brilliant presentation of how the simple, common sense wisdom that Serge Benhayon has offered actually empowers one to live fully in the world and not simply dream about it. How easy it is for us all to live in the dream fug and never never land that is offered by most motivational presenters and just about any other dream-machine product out there! As you have pointed out Gail the motivation behind the motivators is ‘buy my book’, totally centralized, whereas Serge’s illuminating ‘teaching’ benefits all – it is not about him. Thanks for this great blog.

  9. Like you Gail, I had attended numerous personal development seminars and talks. I found the motivational effect dropped off quickly and within 3 or 4 days it was gone. The same with the personal development books – I spent a fortune on them, along with following various diets and health regimes, but again, I didn’t stick to any of them. Yet it was only after I’d been attending Universal Medicine presentations for a couple of years that I realised “hey… I’m still here”, which was so different to anything I’d experienced before.
    But why have I stuck with something when I didn’t previously? First, I like Serge… what you see is what you get. His integity and consistency of love for all is quite extraordinary and he’s the most decent person I have ever met. Serge’s presentations are non imposing, so the responsibilty for what happens in my life is entirely up to me. The presentations offer much simplicity and common sense and have helped me unravel all sorts of issues and confusion in my life and really helped me understand other people and my own relationship with God.
    And as I approach 6 years of association with Unimed I have to say to myself “Wow, I am much healthier, I love life and I’m a stayer”.

  10. Today is World Teacher’s day… great to acknowledge Serge Benhayon and the quality he consistently and constantly brings to his books, presentations and everyday communications with people from all walks of life. As you say Gail, he is the ‘real’ deal – a true world teacher for our time offering, by the way he lives, something real and simple that is there for anyone to tap into.

  11. Gail you’ve explained this so simply and so straightforwardly it is the embodiment of ‘simple, common sense, beautifully expressed’. It feels beautifully complete.

  12. Thank you Gail for such a clear, simple and common sense writing about how our self responsibility and our daily choices change our lives. The truth of your last line touched me very deeply, “Serge Benhayon is unique – he holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity”.

  13. I agree with you Gail that Serge is unique in that he lives everything that he presents and he lives with the highest levels of consistency, support, integrity, ethics and responsibility that I have known. I too have attended numerous presentations and workshops where this is not the case.

  14. I love how this article shares the simplicity and practicality of what Serge Benhayon presents. Thank you Gail for the reminder of how truly simple love is!

  15. This is really worth taking deeper. I have been guilty of buying into approaches that offered to bring me something, confidence, success, make me rich, influential etc. All I needed to to would be change who I am. Along comes Universal Medicine and asks me NOT to change who I am but BE all of who I am… low and behold the gifts you find.

    1. I’m guilty too of buying into other people’s motivational sales pitch on the new way to be better by changing myself. I’ve taken the book home, arranged the fountain in my room, and then expected something to happen. The request to be myself is so simple and unique, and its backed up the huge amount of support from those who work for and with Universal Medicine.

  16. I agree Gail and what an awesome light Serge shares with us all equally, I am so glad someone is holding the torch on humanities behalf, it would be very bleak without it.

  17. The number of speakers on the circuit, self help books on the shelves, motivational tapes etc etc etc available certainly shows many people know their lives are not fulfilling and are looking for guidance because they know something is wrong with how they are living.
    A large majority of the people who attend Universal Medicine presentations have been down this path as well and rejoice that they have finally found someone who clearly walks his talk. We have also discovered our best guidance is ourselves. Deep down we all know what is best for us, and, because Serge Benhayon has introduced us all to Gentle Breath meditation, we can really connect to ourselves and listen to what our inner wisdom has to say.
    It is a joy to discover how keeping things simple and taking more loving care of ourselves, our bodies and our relationships with others really makes a difference to the quality of life we can enjoy.

  18. Great the way you say it, Gail. Your last line simply communicates something that resonates very deeply within me – Serge does hold a torch in the darkness for all humanity.

  19. It is the big R word that gets people going re anything Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, RESPONSIBILITY. As Gail says ‘only you can take responsibility for what has happened in your life as you have grown up and lived it’.

  20. I too have attended New Age pesentations and read many many books about how to “better” oneself and one’s life. For me I have found that they just excite my mental energy and exhaust my nervous system.
    It stays in the head and on the surface. Of course, I dropped all this when found Serge and Universal Medicine who offer a way to live life that is true and respectful of the body and I am healthier now than I have ever been and I love life. Thank you Gail for a clear deeply inspirational article.

  21. Totally agree Gail, it was only when I saw, observed and felt Serge Benhayon present that I knew I had found someone who spoke the truth.

  22. ‘Your actions and intentions make change, not dreams.’ I completely agree, many times have I dreamt for something but actually done nothing solid and consistent to bring about the true change that was needed. Thanks for writing such a common sense blog.

  23. I wholeheartedly agree with this – “It’s one of life’s great privileges to know and listen to Serge Benhayon and the wisdom he imparts for all. He is but a custodian of simple common sense, beautifully expressed and felt in every meeting.”

  24. Great article Gail, and when you wrote “actually all you are doing is reading words on a blackboard and not changing the way you live” I could not help but smile (and wince at the same time because it is what I do). How many of us do this in an effort to get better, but are not willing to make the effort to change?

  25. Commonsense is indeed a “torch in the darkness for all humanity”, and there seems to be a dearth of it in the overly-complex world today. The true torch is so fiery that other’s torches can be lit from it, and other’s from theirs. I’m sure those ‘motivational speakers’ from your past Gayle would be blessed and amazed if anyone from their audiences truly lit up and passed it on. Or maybe not, since they seem to thrive on being at the top talking to the poor minions!

  26. I am blown away by this blog Gail Fuller. I love the way you write and say so much but keep it real. I could not agree with you more in what you have said having been around the new age circuit for 25+ years and leaving with a book or pack of cards or whatever that was going to transform and change my behaviour. At one point I had 4 full bookshelves of new age spirituality books and not read one. That says it all really.
    On national radio a tv celebrity chef talked about “Diwali” and the hindu traditions. I grew up in this religion and never knew that you have to spring clean your house at Diwali so the indian goddess of money visits. Really? How about just cleaning your house every week as something that is practical and supports you. Thats what I do consistently and it works. I do not need a date in a calendar to tell me to do something that will bring me something.
    Serge Benhayon is different to any other presenter I have come across – he is common sense and practical and his simple way of living has inspired me to be the same.
    ‘He holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity.’
    He sure is bringing Light to our dark world and is much needed on earth right now.

  27. Thank you Gail for explaining so clearly how and why the New Age/Spiritual presentations do not produce the outcomes they promise and the difference with Universal Medicine. It does not promise anything other than whatever outcome one experiences it is the result of one’s own choices and actions. It presents what can be achieved by living example and not just the words.

  28. It’s very convenient to look for the easy solution or blame others when something goes wrong. But if we consider that every choice we make contributes to building the way our day unfolds and therefore the life we live, then we cannot deny that we are responsible for what happens ‘to us’ in life. As you say Gail, “We create our own destiny, and it is hard at times to get honest with ourselves about what we have been up to and are trying to get away with.” Serge Benhayon has presented this ageless wisdom, given the practical guidance but also importantly, shown from the way he lives, that this is real – and very possible.

  29. Good points you have raised about Serge Benhayon, especially his simplistic and common sense approach, and also his ability to connect and communicate to all people.

  30. I love your examples Gail. It is so true that nothing will change just by hoping it will. It takes loving dedication, being honest with yourself and taking full responsibility for how you live. As what we are living are a direct result of how we are or have been living and the choices that we make. I completely agree that ‘Serge Benhayon is unique – he holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity.’ As it is not about one person or only ‘you’ being ‘successful’ but it’s about everyone having the opportunity to choose the harmonious life that we all deserve to live. And as you have so well said Universal Medicine ‘presents eating healthy food and undertaking healthy exercise levels, and looking after your body, heart and mind and relationships with others.’ This to me is living a truly successful life, where all areas of your life are lived with integrity, responsibility, respect, equality and love. A way of life that we all have equal access to living, simply by choosing to live it.

  31. Hear, hear Gail. Absolute common sense, and the deepest of inspiration are all that I have ever heard and felt from Serge Benhayon. Not one iota of rah-rah, nor false promises of ‘escape’ from life, but the presentation of a way of life that offers the truest riches – those of who we truly are within, and a depth of joy, love and inner-connection that simply can never be swayed. I can think of no greater gift to humanity than what Serge has brought, and continues to commit to so unwaveringly.

  32. The “rah rah” approach never does anything but to give the audience an emotional high, that invariably never lasts. What Serge Benhayon’s presentations offer is a common sense and consistent philosophy that is all inclusive of all aspects of life.

  33. Gail, you’ve summed it beautifully in the sentence “Serge Benhayon is unique – he holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity.” the integrity, equality, consistency and love is nothing short of amazing.

  34. Gail, I totally agree with this, Serge Benhayon is unique- he holds a torch in the darkness for humanity. This is soo needed in our world today, a world we have all created.

  35. Great blog Gail you are talking about a great point here. I have also seen many presenters. Some that presented workshops for my old job and other presenters through school that would come in and rev up the stories (or rev down) the stories in the bible to teach us something. Serge Benhayon offers a consistency, support and amazing presentations without holding back anything or trying to hide anything from you, he comes out with it all and is not afraid of any question that is asked. All of which he can provide a supportive answer. All of that and he has not had to go to University to study presenting, it is naturally inside him and boy does come out naturally.

  36. This is really great, Gail. I love the way you wrote this so playfully. I fully agree with “he (Serge Benhayon) holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity”. Thank you very much Gail, for writing this.

  37. Your article is very true Gail. There are no quick fixes with Universal Medicine, but people soon discover the benefits of taking responsibility for the choices they make, and to honour what the body is truly feeling. Serge Benhayon certainly “… holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity.”

  38. Awesome Gail. As practical as the elements that make up The Way of the Livingness, so too does your blog outline exactly what is on offer when one is a student of Universal Medicine. No ra ra, just the real deal, and Serge Benhayon is most certainly holding a torch in the darkness for all of humanity – very well said.

  39. Interesting question you raise Gail Fuller “At what point did we decide for ourselves that going to work, paying taxes and bringing up our children deserves a reward of abuse”. For me this is something that is still going on in my life, although not by using any alcohol or drugs anymore as means of abuse, but by the way I go about with myself and others that is not always lovingly. The level of love that I can have in my life dictates the level of abuse I allow into it. Thanks to Serge Benhayon who is unwavering in showing me, and everybody else who wants to see it, a way of living dictated to love and love only, I am able to allow more love in my life, and the more love I allow in, the less abusive my life will become.

  40. Beautifully expressed Gail, Universal medicine presents with great simplicity the love, choice and self-responsibility we can bring to our lives. It is never about imposing but offering another way, the choice to reconnect to who we are in truth and the possibility to live life in a more honest, loving and truthful way. You are so right, there is nothing else like Universal medicine and Serge Benhayon out there, because they make it about people first.

  41. What Serge presents reflects an extraordinary understanding of life and ourselves… a far cry from the usual regurgitated information that tells you everything you want to hear, motivates you, builds you up, but is ultimately unachievable, leaving you to lose hope when your life doesn’t change like the brochures promised. The wisdom he imparts is simple and yet profound and the potential for change not only attainable but immeasurable.

  42. What I really like about this blog is how clear the contrast is between the group of presenters that assume your live away (so by a matter of faith, they dictate that your life can never become an obstacle to anything) and what Serge Benhayon offers (we have to work on how to do life and things unfold from there). The first emphasises the ‘right doing’, the other the ‘right living’. I have no doubt that truth lies in the livingness.

  43. This reminds me of the TV shows that I used to witness sometimes where there was a preacher on the stage almost revving the audience up with something from the bible. I saw this as normal until I came to Universal Medicine and felt for the first time the power of someone imparting their own lived wisdom.. not just something from a scripture etc.

  44. The words of any quote and what is shared in any course you attend are empty unless they are lived with a steadiness and a consistency that is shared with all others. I love all that you have expressed in this blog Gail and it is so true what you say. ‘Your actions and intentions make change, not dreams’.

  45. I would have to agree Gail. All the motivational and new age stuff is neatly packaged to entice you with some form of filling the emptiness – more stuff, more money, the perfect spouse, fame or recognition. I’ve never heard anyone speak about responsibility to self and responsibility to others like Serge Benhayon does, entwined with the sciences of how energy works but presented so practically. A lot of new age folks or gurus make sure their “wisdom” is always dangling out of reach to keep you hooked with no practical way to apply what they say to everyday life. I’ve only witnessed Serge Benhayon actually supporting others to feel their own wisdom (most promote a reliance on the presenter/guru as special or unique). I rarely ever heard self love talked about either, especially when the speakers/writers were after all that adulation themselves. Serge Benhayon is a unique and beautiful gift to the world, and to my world.

  46. I totally agree how rare it is to find a person of such high integrity as Serge Benhayon, someone so committed to the true evolution of the entire humanity – not just those who come and pay to attend his presentations, while our society is saturated with quick-fix solutions and most of us are shamelessly arrogant in that we fundamentally don’t want to look at ourselves and make true changes but want something/someone to bring changes while we can hold our breath under the veneer surface of ‘I am doing OK’ – and there are enough so-called teachers/presenters who seem to be happy to go along with that. There’s no freedom in that.

  47. I can really relate to what you are saying here Gail
    “What a relief it is to come to Universal Medicine, an organisation that presents simple, commonsense information that actually supports you as a human being in all sectors of your life. Over the years I have attended numerous corporate management conferences, corporate health talks, new-age presentations and motivational speeches with some of the best speakers from around the world. There is one thing they all have in common: they excite, motivate and rev you up, but do not offer any long-term, practical tools of substance you can implement in your life. You normally go home with a book by the author that you never read”
    I have become so aware of presenters since meeting Serge Benhayon, that no one can match him and the quality he presents in. He just comes across a normal bloke with sensible suggestions about life. I am part way through completing an on line sales course and the presenter is to be honest driving me nuts. It’s all about himself and the image he wants to imprint on you which is I’m successful your not so listen up and I’ll tell you how I did it. All the while flashing his expensive watch and rings which flash and sparkle in the lights on the cameras, just incase you didn’t see them he moves his hands in such a way that there is no way you cannot see his flashy fashion accessories. To say I’m finding the course difficult is an understatement not because the content is difficult it’s not. It’s the body language and arrogance of the presenter that is so off putting.

  48. This is something that I have always deeply appreciated concerning Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon “They present the fact that only you can make change for you, only you can choose what you allow in your life, only you can take responsibility for what has happened in your life as you have grown up and lived it. Your actions and intentions make change, not dreams.” It is not about being told to do anything, all the changes made can be embodied by the individual and so changes that are made, are claimed and lived. These are short term fixes, this is foundational, it is deeply empowering. A great straight talking, clear and appreciative article – thank you.

  49. What you share is so simple and so true. We are sold the powerlessness of ‘hope’ – we hope that we will be lucky, get rich, find the perfect partner etc. Yet we are all powerful in our choices, we can take responsibility for ourselves, our bodies, our lives – and do so with love and integrity. This is the way that Serge Benhayon lives and therefore inspires others to do the same.

  50. “It’s one of life’s great privileges to know and listen to Serge Benhayon and the wisdom he imparts for all. He is but a custodian of simple common sense, beautifully expressed and felt in every meeting.” – Absolutely agree Gail, having attended many courses in the past, the presenters I saw never walked their talk they were like actors on a stage playing a role – they never presented a true way to live until I meet Serge Benhayon who lives everything he presents.

  51. Serge Benhayon certainly holds a torch for humanity and an extremely bright one at that. Simple living that is based on self-loving choices really is the basis of creating a fulfilling successful life, doesn’t get much simpler than that!

  52. That he does Gail I couldn’t agree more. It is as extraordinary today as it was 7 years I ago when I first heard Serge present, that he does so from a direct flow from his heart, no mind about it, just speaking directly from inside him to inside me and every other person at the same time. A truly remarkable man.

  53. “It’s one of life’s great privileges to know and listen to Serge Benhayon and the wisdom he imparts for all.” Gail, I would go so far as to say my greatest privilege by far. A man of the highest integrity, who’s dedication to humanity, love and the living truth knows no bounds. As you say Giselle, “A truly remarkable man.”

  54. I love what you have written Gail. What a homage to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. So true and simple. It simply all makes sense. There is no falsity no magic, just plain common sense and the responsibility there is to take and live.

  55. It is so true, what Serge Benhayon presents offers real change in the very practical sense. He doesn’t even advertise the courses he presents through Universal Medicine. I feel this is because it is about us in daily life and in society, not about us doing courses.

  56. As you say Gail, Serge Benhayon sets the standard on integrity, ethics and support, and brings to the world, in all aspects of his presentations, healing modalities and personal life, an example of what is possible when one lives ones life in a deep and abiding connection with our inner hearts.

  57. No real change occurs until the change occurs within ourselves, now I know this sounds like its straight out of a self help book however this is how it works.

    Our quality of what we are able to sit with in complete stillness allows that quality to translate into physical action. The greater the stillness in the ability to just be, the greater the ability to true and sustainable change.

  58. ‘At what point did we decide for ourselves that going to work, paying taxes and bringing up our children deserves a reward of abuse, instead of love and appreciation for the great life we are living and inspiring the next generation to grow into?’ Great question Gail, our every day normal is definitely not normal but a very disregarding and irresponsible way of living and the excuses we have are plenty. With Serge Benhayon as an amazing inspiration to live love and appreciation I have turned around my life and made it my normal to let go of abusive patterns and choose the love that lives in my body, simple and clear for all to see, feel and experience.

  59. What Serge presents is definitely unique in the world of presenters, I find that it is real as we need to live it there is no solutions given only inspiration to feel and see what life is truly about.

  60. And not only in the world of presenters, all that is needed is the responsibility in living as truthfull as we have the ability to.

  61. “So what’s different about Universal Medicine? Firstly, the organisation is run professionally and is very simple and easy to interact with. They present the fact that only you can make change for you, only you can choose what you allow in your life, only you can take responsibility for what has happened in your life as you have grown up and lived it. Your actions and intentions make change, not dreams.” Gorgeous blog Gail. Taking back responsibility for our lives and making different choices is the way forward.

  62. Gail, thank you for sharing your experiences with us. For me its simple, as Serge Benhayon is just presenting what he is living, which means ‘walking the talk’. For me that is true inspiration; and observing all the other people – all my amazing friends – is even more inspiring. For me this is truth and I always knew that there is just one truth and I thank Universal Medicine and Serge for reminding us of it so that we can be the amazing beings we are. With deep appreciation to you.

  63. Thank you Gail, and the torch that Serge Benhayon holds aloft for us shines brighter and brighter everyday, and nothing will ever put out that light, because it really is the light of the love of God.

  64. What a magnificent blog Gail. lt says it all. l couldn’t agree more with this incredibly astute testimonial of a magnificent man doing incredible work on this planet, absolutely selfless in his loving approach and he is there, whole heartedly, for anyone who asks for his support. Humanity is blessed by Serge Benhayon every day.

  65. So true Gail. Serge Benhayon has never ‘told me what to do’ but consistently inspires me to look at the way I am living and the choices I make and has given me an understanding of the energy I choose in every move, action, word and thought. Serge Benhayon presents The Way of the Livingness that offers humanity a way out of the darkness back into light.

  66. Thank you Gail, I have felt the same about the presenters and motivational speakers I have seen in the past. Your words highlighted for me the depth and practicality of Universal Medicine’s work, it’s so solid and all inclusive of life. There are no quick fixes, mysterious topics, promises, or talking at you – there are no “special” ones either. The truth is, the power is within us all to change our lives by firstly reconnecting to our essence – our innermost heart. What’s gorgeous about the Universal Medicine student body is the vast array of ages, diverse backgrounds and professions, cultures etc, yet we are all very easily applying the work to our lives as it’s something deeply felt from within.

  67. I fully agree Gail, Serge Benhayon is unique in that what he presents is what he lives and this differs hugely and stands out as missing with any other presenter I have ever seen. And everything that is presented is common sense because it has been looked at and understood and seen for what it truly is.

  68. Gail I love your blog as you made it very clear that: “Your actions and intentions make change, not dreams.” That is what I love on Serge Benhayon – he is so down to earth and everything he is presenting he is living by himself and that is what made it so real and palpable.

  69. When I started questioning life, I had a look around at all the self-help and spiritual pursuits out there, and none of them felt right or really made sense, or had lasting results. Serge Benhayon is the first person I’ve EVER heard present (or even teach) that actually makes sense and teaches not just through what he says, but the inspiration of how he lives in every single moment.

  70. Yes. well said Gail Fuller. I’ve seen few presenters and facilitators in my life too and can say that it was once I heard Serge Benhayon speak, that my desire to keep seeking answers fell away. He presents with the highest level of integrity of anyone I have met and this brings with it, fullness and completion that reflects the same back to me. Serge lives and breathes an equality of being I had not experienced in anyone else over many years of attending a wide variety of wellbeing events and reading many books on the subjects of popular psychology, wellbeing, new age et al. Through his reflection I have learned the importance of ‘claiming myself’, rather than looking outside and waiting for someone else to recognise me and tell me who I am. That ‘information’ (wisdom) is innate within me and it is my responsibility to reconnect to and then live from it – and what a difference this makes to life. Thank you Gail – and thank you Serge Benhayon.

  71. It is not just that what Serge Benhayon presents is totally practical AND common sense, it is also delivered with such an understanding of human awareness that it is like everyone is being addressed personally ,and with an integrity of expression that actually and literally resonates in one’s body

  72. It is rare to find people who hold a torch in the dark for others and aren’t consumed by the dark themselves and just pretending not to be. The world needs people like Serge Benhayon to inspire them and show them that there is a way to live so that you don’t need courses, workshops, potions or pills for you can become your own torch.

  73. “It is like writing motivational words on a blackboard each day and reading them, hoping that something dramatic will change, when actually all you are doing is reading words on a blackboard and not changing the way you live.”
    Thanks Gail, this describes exactly what the difference is between empty knowledge and lived wisdom (livingness), as presented by Serge Benhayon.

  74. “….if you continue to bludgeon it with alcohol, drugs, poor food and emotional turmoil, then of course it will break down. Any intelligent person would not expect a different result.” So true and yet we do, all the time. We constantly override what our body is showing us and are then surprised when it breaks down. What Universal Medicine has done for me is to wake me up from the trance of just ignoring the blatantly obvious that I have been metaphorically running headlong into a wall time after time after time after time. I can still be seen doing this from time to time – but now I know I am so being aware of the insanity of it soon brings me to a stop.

  75. It seems the self-help guru world is a bit of a set up with a mass of people who do not want to really take responsibility for their lives but want the magic bullet that will fix everything, and then you have the gurus or motivational speakers who are only too happy to supply that demand. And hence an industry is born. What I have always found intriguing and refreshing about Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine is that they never play ball with this arrangement but have always presented simple common sense and wisdom that works for them in their own lives. Universal Medicine has always presented that the keys to changing your life are in your own choices and learning to make more self loving ones. It is very simple, sometimes confrontingly so, but I can attest it is very effective.

  76. We create our own destiny, and it is hard at times to get honest with ourselves about what we have been up to and are trying to get away with. Oh we humans do like to self abuse, to indulge and stay in comfort, and then we wonder why the body breaks down later on in life….Getting completely honest with ourselves in how we are living is the golden key to changing and making different choices that truly support our bodies to heal and clear and evolve.

  77. I have also found that Universal Medicine has supported all aspects of my life. The change in the last 15 years has been enormous. What I am also finding is that in reality there are no ‘aspects’ of my life. They are all one and the same and all affect one another.

  78. I have also experienced motivational or new age speakers and courses in the past. They build you up at that moment to a high, which is followed by the inevitable low, as there is nothing of substance to sustain you. This leaves you needing to go back for another course, another book etc. just to get another high. Universal Medicines teachings, which support us to be the students of our own bodies and wisdom are the only ones that offer something real and very practical from the depth of the soul.

    1. I agree – it is another stimulant and the price for a stimulant is the ‘down’ experience afterwards.

  79. There has always been something missing, really in truth much missing, in past presentations that I have attended. Serge Benhayon is the only one I have experienced to be truly honest, and in the livingness of that which he Presents, which is the Love that we all are. Most certainly “He holds a torch in the darkness for all Humanity”

  80. Only we ourselves can turn our lives around, Serge Benhayon has a deep understanding of this. And this is heard in the deep real ness he speaks from.

  81. “Serge Benhayon is unique – he holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity.” This torch is illuminating a path for humanity that now many, many people are treading and who are fuelling that torch of truth an love.

  82. So beautifully written Gail Fuller and well-captured for this amazing simple living man who is in great service to all. “It’s one of life’s great privileges to know and listen to Serge Benhayon and the wisdom he imparts for all. He is but a custodian of simple common sense, beautifully expressed and felt in every meeting.” That’s true! Serge is so consistent. I have never seen him have an off day.

  83. “We create our own destiny, and it is hard at times to get honest with ourselves about what we have been up to and are trying to get away with.” I have experienced creating my own destiny, and being dishonest. This was a regular occurrence – very regular! However, when I stop and give myself space to feel what it is I need to do next it is a different choice guaranteed then I would often make next. How do you know? A different quality will be honoured because it was a choice to stop and honour you the next choice only has to support you, until of course when you choose not again or say yes to indulging, comfort, struggle, pain … That proves I do have control over my destiny. And, then, being honest, absolutely honest will deliver you truth …

  84. “It’s one of life’s great privileges to know and listen to Serge Benhayon and the wisdom he imparts for all. He is but a custodian of simple common sense, beautifully expressed and felt in every meeting” Well said Gail, I couldn’t agree more.

  85. A very valid aspect to look at when we offer something to the world, not only as a presenter but in all areas of life, are we truly offering something that brings equalness and true change to all or is there a hidden self-gain and self-recognition in what we do?

  86. ‘Serge Benhayon is unique – he holds a torch in the darkness for all humanity.’ Spot on Gail, and it is rare to find a man like Serge Benhayon who truly walks his talk – that is why he is so inspiring.

  87. When I am at a speech of a motivational speaker I experience it as very imposing – like being forced to wear another person’s clothing. It can be exciting and interesting but as Gail said, it does not work.

  88. I have also attended many workshops and had many sessions with practitioners that excited and gave me what I wanted to hear to try and ‘keep me’ coming back and wanting more but it was temporary and short lived. I found seeking from one spiritual modality to another nothing but a distraction from looking at myself and taking responsibility for my own wellbeing and life. What Serge Benhayon presents can be confronting and exposing but he does not pander to anyone’s needs but simply delivers and expresses truth.

  89. Absolutely Gail it comes down to the way we live, ‘It is like writing motivational words on a blackboard each day and reading them, hoping that something dramatic will change, when actually all you are doing is reading words on a blackboard and not changing the way you live.’
