My Lovely Shoulders

by Jade Pattrick, Grandmother and Sales Assistant, Byron Bay, NSW

It was my on-going, debilitating shoulder pain that got me to Serge Benhayon’s books, presentations and workshops three years ago. I still have shoulder pain. However, I am now thanking my lovely shoulders because they have taught me to start paying attention to my body.

Since being involved with Universal Medicine I have noticed some wonderful changes, such as:

  • Less and less I experience the tremendous ups and downs that I used to
  • I now no longer need a man to make me feel like I’m enough
  • I feel more calm
  • I am kinder to myself and others
  • I no longer drink alcohol because I’m now listening to my body
  • I eat the best I ever have
  • I don’t have a million distractions going on
  • I am learning to speak up
  • I am learning to simply be me… And the list goes on.

I feel like I learn something new about myself (and others) every day, which inspires me to keep healing – not just for myself, but for all of us.

One more well person on the planet has to be good for everyone.

  1. This is such a good list. In particular I relate to the ‘speaking up’ one. It has been incredible for me to see, since participating in the courses at Universal Medicine, how much I actually resented myself for not speaking up – in fact I continually misrepresented myself to the world (not a good attorney to have employed!) and then resented the world and myself. Having seen and felt this I am now speaking up in a way I would never have thought possible and it feels so freeing. Thanks Jade for expressing what is happening for you.

  2. That sure is a great list of turnarounds you are enjoying in your life, Jade, since you started attending Universal Medicine presentations and workshops presented by Serge Benhayon.

  3. Indeed some wonderful changes you note here Jade most of which I can also relate too. And may the discoveries continue!

  4. Simple and lovely post. I love the line about the ‘one more well person on the planet has to be good for everyone’ too.

  5. ‘One more well person on the planet has to be good for everyone.’ I absolutely agree. However not only is it good, but your joy and well-being is an inspiration. Thank you Jade.

    1. Absolutely when more people take responsibility for their own healing, this becomes an inspiration to others, and humanity can then see that there is another way to live. Thank you Jade and Carola.

  6. Awesome Jade, what an amazing change and I love how everyday there is more to learn – as we all return to the truth we are!

    1. I agree Jade, I love this blog. It is so simple and very relatable. Your comment is also an awesome reminder for me to appreciate that everyday is a blessing giving us the opportunity to continuously learn and expand.

  7. It is gorgeous how you appreciate something that hurts you on a physical level recognising that the pain offers you so much more than discomfort. Your awareness of your body and commitment to healing is beautiful, and the profound list of changes you have chosen/experienced is an amazing testament to that and subsequently an inspiration to many.

  8. I still have shoulder pain. However, I am now thanking my lovely shoulders because they have taught me to start paying attention to my body. A blessing in disguise it would seem Jade!

  9. Wonderful turnaround in how you are feeling Jade, and such changes are an inspiration to others.

  10. One more well person on the planet has to be good for everyone. This is gold and a clear reason why we should be well hence taking deeply care of ourselves.

  11. Thank you Jade, I loved reading your blog, so simple, “one more well person on the planet has to be good for everyone”, great.

  12. Well said! I love the last sentence that you have used, it feels very true to me that one person can really make a difference… like a ripple effect, one person is one drop of water in a large pond I imagine is our world… and that ripple spreads the whole pond.

  13. ‘I feel like I learn something new about myself (and others) every day, which inspires me to keep healing – not just for myself, but for all of us.’ Thank you for sharing Jade and I too feel that I now have the openness to be constantly learning about myself and that this benefits not just me but everyone.

    1. Accepting yourself as a student of life which is exactly what the foundations of Universal Medicines teachings are, allows us to see and receive our everyday life as a continual learning experience so that just like you shared Jade, ‘I feel like I learn something new about myself (and others) every day, which inspires me to keep healing – not just for myself, but for all of us’. I too love living this way so thankyou Jade for your blog reminding me of this fact.

  14. This is a great example of learning something very important from pain, and the outcome when we take care of ourselves, the list of changes are amazing, and am sure feel amazing.

  15. Sometimes it makes me smile when I notice some aches and pains in my body and I find myself having to adjust how I do things, it’s like somehow my body finds a way to communicate with me even if I don’t hear it first. Our bodies really are lovely.

  16. “I feel like I learn something new about myself (and others) every day, which inspires me to keep healing – not just for myself, but for all of us.” – Beautifully expressed Jade and the power of true healing and how it supports and inspires everyone around us.

    1. Yes, I love that too. It always feels so much more expansive and amazing to include everyone. Naturally we are all deeply connected, hence when we do include everyone we can feel absolutely amazing. It confirms to me that when we choose to exclude, disconnect and be separate from each other, this goes against our natural make up and can create tense, hardness and misery in our body and in our lives. So, by simply choosing to open our hearts and follow our natural way to connect is innately within us all.

  17. Thank you for sharing the changes you have experienced Jade. No matter, who or what led us to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine there can be no doubt it is something to be ever deeply grateful for.

  18. It is amazing the huge turnaround in the quality of our lives if we embrace even the smallest amount of self-love from not having been self-loving in any way. Huge!

  19. Our bodies show us so much when we stop and take notice, not just of the pain that’s there but how to live well with ourselves, others and the universe. Considering how many people come into contact with that one living well person, setting an example for the hundreds if not thousands they meet the more ones the merrier!

  20. It’s a pity that so many of us, including me, wait until the pain is not bearable anymore before we listen to our bodies. I’m really glad that I met Serge Benhayon and got introduced to Universal Medicine, which for me is a way of living that is really aware of the body and listens to any tension I’d feel, so I don’t have to undergo physical pain anymore.

  21. Jade I love hearing all the changes you have made since attending Universal Medicine presentations, simple and practical self-love principles that truly work that benefit not only yourself but everyone around you as well.

  22. Absolutely Jade, all walks of life benefit from what is presented and lived by Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine students. For me I now take responsibility for my own health and well-being, which includes regular checkups with my GP.

  23. Brilliant Jade, I love the list of changes you have noticed since attending Universal Medicine presentations and workshops. Your list is very similar to mine. I am now appreciating everyday how amazing life is since my introduction to Universal Medicine. I have been extremely inspired to take responsibility and make more and more loving choices. Very empowering realisation that our choices are super important as they not only impact on us but others too.

  24. “One more well person on the planet has to be good for everyone.” Absolutely Jade. With the ever increasing rates of illness and disease it would seem that Universal Medicine students are getting healthier – not iller! …..

  25. ‘One more well person on the planet has to be good for everyone’. Well said, in an era where we’ve skewed the meaning of being well to mean ‘not being ill’ rather than being vital, fit, healthy, with bags of energy, great skin, shiny eyes, that sort of thing. Being truly well can be an inspiration to others to live in a way that truly supports their body, their health and their wellbeing – and that absolutely has to be good for everyone.

  26. Serge Benhayon presents the understanding that when we have a pain in our body it is not something ‘wrong’ but a message from our body that the way we have been living is not true. Conventional medicine is there to support us in dealing with the problem but it is our responsibility to play our part in making different choices in the way we live that were the underlying cause of the problem in the first place.

  27. Reading your article Jade I get the feeling of what a great friend and teacher our body is to us. Through allowing the manifestation of our ill choices to be seen or felt within it, our body is giving us the opportunity, if we so choose, to seek healing and to take responsibility for all our choices.

  28. I could with every bullet point alone say: ‘that is absolutely amazing to change that!’ and you are not living that one point but all of them at once… That is even more amazing and an answer to many peoples woes.

    1. Very true Lieke. For me the fact that I now floss my teeth every day is a miracle as it is something that I always found impossible to do in the past. The more we appreciate the turnarounds in our lives the more miracles multiply. Thank you for sharing your list with us Jade. I loved reading about the changes you have made.

  29. A gorgeous sharing Jade. Every extra well person we have on the planet makes an enormous difference because they inspire and/or affect all those they come in contact with.

  30. “One more well person on the planet has to be good for everyone.” Jade that is so true and how lovely would it be if more people could see it like you have so beautiful described.

  31. Absolutely Jade! The more well people I see and know the more I’m inspired to continue my life journey with self responsibility and care. Having awareness of our body where it’s causing us pain is a vital key to helping us understand what’s going on, if we want to find out of course.

    1. Well said Elodie. By listening and being aware of our body, this supports us to make more loving choices which then supports us to heal. This healing process has a ripple effect and it is amazing how it works, and inspires more and more people to also heal.

  32. Every day we have the opportunity to learn, grow and heal, but do we truly appreciate and maximize on this fact and our potential?

  33. To experience just one of the changes or lessons you have listed is sometimes one more than many get to experience in a lifetime… yet to experience all is truly remarkable. There is no doubt that what Universal Medicine offers and inspires in others is beyond incredible.

  34. When we stop trying to find solutions and just allow ourselves to stop and reconnect as is taught by Universal Medicine, a whole other world opens up to us and with it a very different approach to ourselves, our bodies and life.

  35. Thank you Jade. Your list of wonderful changes sounds like mine. Your blog reminds me to appreciate these life changing choices I have made that has dramatically improve the way I work, my relationships with people and everything else in life. Serge Benhayon and people at Universal Medicine are continuously inspiring me every day to simply be who I am, to live expressing love and truth consistently to the best of my ability and to appreciate who we all are, a son of God, naturally divine, precious and deeply loving.

  36. Definitely Jade, and one more healthy person reflecting another way to live to others. If I get angry or am hard on myself or start pushing myself, my left shoulder shows me right away and I get a sharp pain in it.

  37. An amazing sharing of a relationship with oneself that has been transformed – clearly in no small measure by Serge Benhayon. Every point you’ve shared here Jade is absolute gold – every point no small thing in this world where we are, as a rule, punishing and harming ourselves so greatly with the substances we consume and many habits that do not actually support a vital and joyful quality of well-being.
    That so many have experienced transformations such as this, and in a sustained and ongoingly deepening way in their lives, through association with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine is amazing beyond measure, and deserving of extensive study. One can’t help but be lit up in reading a blog such as this, in the face of ever more alarming statistics (i.e. people) facing illness, disease and distress in their lives.
    Well done you, and what an inspiration you must be to those who know you Jade!

  38. Yes Jade, one more well person on the planet is an absolute miracle in the face of the onslaught of disease and ill health that humanity has created. Great work. The life you lead sounds wonderful.

  39. It’s not very often that we here someone thanking there body because of what it has brought them. It can be difficult to see outside the pain that we are in whether physical or emotional pain. But when we do we see so much more that has been at our fingertips the whole time. You are correct…the whole world benefits when we are truly well within. I know I also thank Serge Benhayon for learning to understand what this truly means.

  40. Awesome Jade, your list of wonderful changes are like mine. I too have made massive changes to how I live, since I was introduced to Universal Medicine, not because anyone told me to but because I have been deeply, deeply inspired. I met people at Universal Medicine events emanate such vibrant, healthy, joyful and loving way and I wanted to learn to live this way too.

  41. This is gorgeous Jade – the changes you have made are extraordinary and remind us of the power of love and how it supports us to truly heal. One more person choosing this allows so many around you as well to be inspired by your loving choices.

  42. “I feel like I learn something new about myself (and others) every day, which inspires me to keep healing – not just for myself, but for all of us.” Life takes on another dimension through connection to our own inner-stillness. The state of our homes, neighborhoods and towns may well be the result of our quality in connection.

  43. Often we may think an ache or pain is a nuisance but they are very loving messages our body is sending us to bring our attention to it and it is a way to communicate to us to be more loving with our body. Can you imagine if we couldn’t feel any physical pain, how much faster would our body deteriorate? Without our ability to feel physical pain we would damage our body at a rapid rate when we do physical exercise or work. So, I would say our ability to feel both physically and energetically is highly important.
