Serge Benhayon Helped Me Get Off The Merry-Go-Round

by Johanne Brown, Perth, Australia

I had always felt that there was more to life than what I was seeing – there just had to be. This ‘merry-go-round just can’t be it.

You live… work… retire… die… There had to be more than that, a purpose for being here, being a human being… this planet… the universe… The questions just got bigger and bigger and I didn’t know where to begin to start addressing them. All the while I would just get on with the day to day running of things; being mum to small children, working part time, wife, friend, etc.

I explored a few paths, read books and at times thought I had come to some understanding; but with time, these pursuits just fell short of something – yet I didn’t know exactly what that something was. I had a feeling that something else was yet to come along.

One day I was handed a leaflet about a Universal Medicine course. I remember, very carefully, studying the leaflet. To be honest, even some of the wording made me cautious, e.g. ‘Sacred’, ‘Truth,’ ‘Love’ – as these words are regularly thrown around, and we have all developed our own interpretations of their meaning.

However, stronger than this caution was the feeling to attend.

I remember, as vividly as if it were yesterday, at that first Universal Medicine course, the sense that I had ‘come home’. ‘I know this… but what is it I know?’, my brain was asking.

One can let the mind struggle with the terminology, concepts, the wanting to know precisely, to work it out, but nothing… nothing will ever override the feeling or sense of knowing that I felt. I could have denied it, doubted and rejected it, but that impression was palpable, a marker that could not be ignored, and I could not pretend it didn’t happen.

I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had ‘come home’ was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul.

I was unconscious of the fact that this connection had really always been there, it was the connection to myself (love/soul) that was giving me the feeling that there was more to life than what I was seeing. What I innately knew on the inside was not being confirmed by the world we live in. Hence the disillusion of living ‘on the merry-go-round’ set in.

All the other books and the few courses I had attended had kept me in the search for something, but Universal Medicine just presented Me back to me. I had come home.

Imagine if you are making a cake: you have a mixing bowl and put all the ingredients into the bowl and mix. That’s what I was doing in life, mixing the ingredients but feeling that there was just one ingredient missing. Now I realise that the missing ingredient was my love in the mix.

Seven years later, I have attended many of Universal Medicine’s workshops. The understanding I have of myself, relationships and love continues to unfold: now life, with all of me in it, teaches me back.

Serge Benhayon never ever stands there and tells anyone what to do, eat or how to live. He presents and shares simple techniques, such as the Gentle Breath Meditation. You can take it or leave it, that’s the reality. It’s an insult to suggest that people who have been attending any Universal Medicine workshops are followers of some kind, because at the end of the day it is up to you.

  1. This says it all – ‘I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had ‘come home’ was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul.’ When we feel the union between our body and being it matters not where we are or what we are doing as we know we are absolutely fulfilled by the love of who we are, and this presence remains with us any where we go.

  2. The belief that life is all about you live, work, retire and die is a torturous merry-go-round as we all have a knowing deep within that there is more. Living a life from the merry-go-round causes a huge tension as it goes against who we truly are and where we are from.

  3. Presenting our love back to us, that is exactly what I too have learned from Universal Medicine Johanna, and it’s utterly changed my life and I’ve made those changes. Simple and very real, and each day I learn more from me and life, I’ve seen the key is in me all along. It’s in all of us.

  4. Life on the merry-go-round keeps us in our old momentums and stops us connecting and looking inside ourselves, where our essence resides, which is what we have been missing all along.

  5. Lovely to read Johanne, I agree, I knew that had to be more to life, otherwise it just did not make sense, ‘You live… work… retire… die… There had to be more than that, a purpose for being here, being a human being…’.

  6. So many people on attending their first ever presentation by Serge Benhayon have shared that they felt as if they had come home, as you did Johanne and as did I. I have carried that memory with me since and it is a memory that reminds me constantly of the joy I felt when I realised that the home I felt that I had returned to was actually me; the me that I had been searching for, for so long in all the ‘wrong places. Now I know that I didn’t need to have gone searching as I had never left me, I had simply buried who I truly was under layers of ideals, beliefs, emotions and other life experiences so I was always there waiting to be reconnected to once again.

  7. I can relate well to your blog Johanne, I was on a search for many years looking for truth and never found anything that felt true. When I met Serge Benhayon it was obvious to me the search was over because Serge spoke such deep wisdom and love that every cell in my body knew this was the truth and this has been confirmed to me consistently through Serge’s loving actions and lived ways for over 14 years now.

  8. “I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had ‘come home’ was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul.” I love this.

  9. Thanks Johanne, I could relate to the analogy of life being like a cake mix and one ingredient missing – our love. I also searched high and low to quell the unending feeling there must be more to life and that something was missing. Just as you have shared, Serge Benhayon lives and presents from the truth and love we all are and can live from, and in so doing he supports people to reconnect back to the depths of who they truly are via his reflection. The sense of equality in all of Serge’s presentations is a big part of this healing process of reconnecting back to ourselves in full.

  10. “Universal Medicine just presented Me back to me.” How extraordinary – yet at once so very natural – it was to come to the presentations of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, for myself also Johanne.
    And to meet a quality of man and the organisation that he founded, that simply has no discrepancies whatsoever – integrity at a level never before experienced, and truth delivered with consistency that holds back nought, for all.

  11. I too Johanna have realised that the missing ingredient to all my cakes was love, and it is not a ingredient you can buy, you just have to allow it (choose It) to flow through the vessel we call the physical body. Now whether making cakes or walking through life love is my way.

  12. I remember being on the merry go round of life. I remember even saying that my life was like being on a merry go round as I remembered seeing the same things keep passing me buy but never doing anything about them. Serge Benhayon supported me to step off the merry go round and look back at it and still be able to see things going round but not being in the middle of them. I understand life more fully and don’t get caught on the merry go round like I use to. In fact I could even see that I was caught, I could just see the results. My life would spin out of control at times, so fast I thought I would surely either break or just fall off. Now with what I have seen from Serge Benhayon my life is consistent no massive highs and no massive lows just a living consistency day to day that supports me and everything around me. I love how I feel when I wake and feel the same when I sleep, my life makes sense and feels very steady in how it is. Serge Benhayon has supported many to have the same way, The Way Of The Livingness.

  13. “…nothing will ever override the feeling or sense of knowing that I felt. I could have denied it, doubted and rejected it, but that impression was palpable, a marker that could not be ignored, and I could not pretend it didn’t happen.”
    This continues to hold me today. Nothing can touch the warmth and grace I now feel inside my body. This is a part of me that speaks louder than any words, thoughts or beliefs.”

  14. Universal Medicine supported me to realise what I was missing were the qualities I had inside me all along, that I didn’t even know I had… but once you reconnect to them, you can’t not know.

  15. Whatever we do, whatever the recipe we are tending to in life, if it is missing love it is missing everything.

  16. It’s so true that before Universal Medicine, managing life was like mixing ingredients in a bowl when the recipe was just not working due to missing a vital something. I can absolutely relate to appreciating the enormous difference that love makes to life. Life is deeply beautiful when it teaches you back what you need to learn from it when love and understanding of self and life lies at your foundation.

  17. When we constantly are looking and searching on the outside for a quality and integrity that already lies within it will always keep us stuck on the treadmill of life putting in a whole heap of effort to just mark time on the one spot.

  18. Thank you Johanne for a beautiful sharing, I had the same feeling when I attended my first presentation by Serge, I knew in that moment I had come home, at last, but in that moment a part of me just wanted to rush out of there, but needless to say I stayed to come home to me and find that what i had searched outward for all my life was living deep within.

  19. Johanne you wrote: “What I innately knew on the inside was not being confirmed by the world we live in.” This fact is not only a fact for you as I can say it was for me too. Being confirmed at that point changed my whole live as well. Therefore it is really time to bring our conscious back to the fact that we all have this connection to ourselves.

  20. Life on the merry-go-round keeps us busy and never allows us to find our feet, which would enable us to come home to our true selves. This will be the case until we make the choice to step off the merry-go-round and change the momentum we have been living in.

  21. So true Johanne. I too knew that there had to be more to life than the apparent merry-go-round as there didn’t seem to be any true purpose, it just didn’t make sense. I attended my first presentation by Serge Benhayon very skeptical and doubtful as to why I was going but it changed everything. suddenly I had heard a presentation and all began to make sense. It is a forever unfolding to re-connect to the love that I and everyone else share and to feel the energy that is in everyone and everything around us in the Universe.

  22. Beautifully said Johanne, “now life, with all of me in it, teaches me back.” When we connect to the wisdom of our body it supports us to truly know ourselves and to evolve to living in full from this quality of being.

  23. Serge Benhayon has helped many to get off the merry-go round of life and presented the opportunity to bring an awareness and deeper understanding of ourselves, our relationships and the beauty of connecting to and unfolding a deeper quality of love from our essence.

  24. Sometimes when I am off track, it is just the thought of him that can bring me back to a greater purpose.

  25. “All the other books and the few courses I had attended had kept me in the search for something, but Universal Medicine just presented Me back to me. I had come home.” Beautiful Johanne, I can so relate.

  26. A great description of life as a merry go round – the disillusion of living in a way we know is not true, not what we innately know on the inside and yet is confirmed all around us by the world we live in.

  27. ‘What I innately knew on the inside was not being confirmed by the world we live in. Hence the disillusion of living ‘on the merry-go-round’ set in.’ This was very much my own experience too, how I felt didn’t fit into the world we live in, however I never thought that maybe the world didn’t fit around who we truly are, yet we are responsible for how the world is set up, it just doesn’t make sense.

  28. Great analogy of ingredients without love in the mix rendering all our merry-go-round stirrings futile in creating that perfect cake. Love provides the energy, the heat that enables the mix to expand into the stupendous cake we’re meant to be.

  29. Well said Johanne, “now life with all of me in it, teaches me back.” Without a connection to ourselves we end up going round and round in circles often repeating the same patterns and behaviours as we have no foundation of love to stand and hold ourselves with. Discovering true love through presentations by Serge Benhayon was the turning point to get to know my true self and start to claim the love within me.

  30. agree once love is felt it is impossible to erase and very difficult to ignore. There is an entire discussion that can take place why people ignore love in their life and what tools they use to keep the feeling of love at bay. Its a science in its self really.

  31. Knowing that there was more to this life than what I was seeing all around me kept me searching but it wasn’t until I heard Serge Benhayon explain about my responsibility for my own choices did I know that I could not be a victim anymore but in actual fact I could start having a loving say in my way of living. Everything Serge says makes sense to me and I am constantly in deep gratitude to him for also ‘bringing me home to me’ – thank you Johanne.

  32. So true Johanne and very well said, Serge Benhayon teaches how to live life “with all of me in it.”
    And this makes all the difference!

  33. I can relate to what you have shared Johanne, I was also seeking the one missing ingredient in the merry-go-round of my life that would make sense of why the world is the way that it is. It was not until meeting Serge Benhayon that I discovered true love and reconnecting back to myself, slowly building and unfolding a quality of connection with myself and everyone.

  34. Great reminder Brendan the choice ‘to connect to oneself irrespective of what is going on around you’ is always there and thanks to the presentations of Serge Benhayon I am making that choice more and more.

  35. ‘I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had ‘come home’ was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul.’ I love the way you express this Johanne and can really relate as this was my experience of attending my first workshop and although I found some aspects challenging there was an overwhelming feeling that my search was over – I had found ‘me’.

  36. It’s tough to live life feeling there is more but not really knowing what that is – I was doing this my whole life before I met Serge Benhayon and re-connected to the fact that I had a soul!

  37. “That’s what I was doing in life, mixing the ingredients but feeling that there was just one ingredient missing. Now I realise that the missing ingredient was my love in the mix.” This is such a great understanding. I can relate, for long I looked for things outside of myself and it never totally felt satisfying. With the teachings as presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine I started to see and feel that it is about living my life with me, bringing me to the world instead of living at the mercy of the world around me.

  38. I can relate to what is written Johanne I have been to many universal medicine workshops also. I have found what I was looking for, and that’s my connection to the love that’s inside me. The day to day for me now is a day to express and be me, to love everyone that I’m in contact with. There is no daily grind or Merry-Go-Round. My life now has meaning and purpose.

  39. Yep for me it was the same, when I first heard Serge Benhayon speak it was like coming home. Finally someone was saying things that made sense.

  40. I love your description of the struggle the mind can go through to work it all out. But that feeling of knowing is deeper and stronger than anything the mind could come up with. So much so that words don’t really do it justice.

  41. ‘Universal Medicine just presented Me back to me’ – how simple and yet complete at the same time. I have been feeling in a little turmoil over the past day or so, and as I read this, it was like someone had touched me firmly yet lovingly on the shoulders and said ‘stop, breath, come back’, and I did.

  42. The merry go round is simply us constantly going round to change the choices we have made and make them more loving and in line with who we truly are. I have often felt when I look back at my past how much the same thing keeps coming back to me in a similar flavour again and again and when I decide to change the quality of my choice it no longer comes back. This is the merry go round it is not?

  43. ”All the other books and the few courses I had attended had kept me in the search for something, but Universal Medicine just presented Me back to me. I had come home” – I so love how you have said this with such simplicity and clarity.

  44. “I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had ‘come home’ was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul.” – A beautiful reminder of the support and inspiration Serge Benhayon offers everyone equally to re-connect and make choices that are truly loving.

  45. There are so many layers of the merry-go-round, that I sometimes feel like giving up and not wanting to go deeper. Everytime this happens, Serge Benhayon is there, either I listen to an audio or I find a supporting line in one of his books or I get personal support. I cannot even list all the things that Serge Benhayon supports me with, because there are infinite layers of support.

    1. Yes Felixschumacher8 – I have found this happening also. Even when I am bogged down with complexity and feel like I have never gotten off the merry-go-round, there is still a part of me that keeps pulling me onwards because I know that I am so much more than whatever complexity I am grappling with. I also know that I will never go back to what I was before I came across Universal Medicine. Invariably support is offered in some shape or form and I feel myself lift and move forward again and for that I am extremely grateful.

  46. I had a similar experience, Johanne, and can so relate to your line: “What I innately knew on the inside was not being confirmed by the world we live in”. Serge Benhayon just confirms what we already know is true but had never had the courage to admit because it went against the status quo.

  47. Thank you Johanne for sharing your experience, an experience that mirrors my own regarding how supportive the Universal Medicine workshops and presentations have been to help me get off the merry go round of life and reconnect back to something far more awesome – coming home to me.

  48. I too can relate to the tension of accepting life as it was on the not-so-merry-go-round was unbearable in my teens. The idea that this was what I was to experience in the however many years left to live felt crushing. My parents initially came across Universal Medicine in 2006 but I never attended a course until the curiosity became too great in 2011. Since then my life has continued to make more and more sense and no longer feels like a drag or something to ‘grin and bear it’. Nowhere else have I ever found common sense to be so tangible and real than in what Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon presents. A great medicine for confirming that feeling that we all know that there is more to life than is currently presented in society.

  49. Thank you Joanne for sharing your experience, I had the same feeling when I attended my first talk by Serge. I had over the years left a number of churches , left the new age movement, got rid of all my books , and for a number of years felt I was living in some kind of spiritual desert until that first talk, and like you, I knew I had at last, come home.

  50. “Universal Medicine just presented Me back to me..” This is exactly how it feels to me Johanne, thank you for this simple but deeply felt truth.

  51. Great blog Johanne, I can totally relate to feeling that there was something more to life than what was being shown to me and, like you, once I attended a Universal Medicine workshop there was the big ah-ha – the missing piece! And like you say, it is nothing ‘out there’ just a presentation of “Me back to me”.

  52. We are made to believe that the cake mix is complex and full of ingredients when in truth it only has one: Love. Beautiful sharing Johanne, thank you!

    1. And it is so easy to get caught up in trying to make some fancy complicated cake thinking that a gourmet cake will make us happier. All the fancy ingredients in life are pointless if love is not there.

  53. And all Serge presents is the way he lives, which inspires me to bring out more of my love into my life, which is such an important ingredient… without it my cooking tastes terrible 😛

  54. There was always just one ingredient missing in my life and that was love – self love. Through attending courses and presentations with Serge and Universal Medicine, I have healed so many of my hurts, which has supported me to re-connect to the love that was alwasys within.

  55. Wunderbare Johanne I agree that Serge Benhayon only shares and presents and this was for me the clue – Serge Benhayon let me be who I am and so I can freely choose what I want to do – this was a new and healing experience for me. If you as a reader don’t believe me – find out for yourself.

  56. Johanne thank you for sharing your journey so far. It took many years of searching for me to be introduced to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine by a lovely friend. This started to open my eyes to the whys and wherefores of Life, what is it all about. The fact that we are here to evolve and recognise that we come from Love and that is who we are.

  57. Dear Johanne, it’s an amazing point that you make that other spiritual pursuits take you on more and more journeys seeking answers outside of the self, but Universal Medicine brings you back to the self. I heartily agree, and it’s why it works!

  58. Johanne you capture and explain it so clearly, your words regarding re-finding Truth or Love amidst daily modern life as we know it: “What I innately knew on the inside was not being confirmed by the world we live in. Hence the disillusion of living ‘on the merry-go-round’ set in”. You have nailed what most of us, including myself, have also felt at some stage in our lives. Thank goodness the merry-go-round ceased at Universal Medicine, and thank God for us choosing to alight there.

  59. Thanks for a beautiful blog Johanne. I’m sure the feeling of there being something more to life are shared by many of us. With your continued unfolding , I love how you describe, “..now life, with all of me in it, teaches me back.”

  60. Thank you Johanne, beautifully expressed. I also felt this to be true – ‘What I innately knew on the inside was not being confirmed by the world we live in.’ And disillusion followed with me giving in to living in a way that I knew was not true however over-rode this feeling, until I came across Universal Medicine which simply ‘just presented Me back to me’. I was then able to re-connect to the truth that I felt in my inner-heart, my Soul, and honor the essence of who I am. And with this I began and continue to choose to live the loving life that is waiting to be lived, for myself, with what I do and with everyone I am in a relationship with. There is another way, the Way of the Livingness, and it is a glorious way to live. It truly does feel like coming home.

  61. I felt the same way you did, Johanne, life did feel like a merry-go-round. And yes we are spinning around on a planet that is not actually going anywhere, but returning to the same spot where it was last year in every moment. I so appreciate learning the Gentle Breath Meditation which brings the mind into alignment with the body, a beautiful stop to feel the stillness and the loving soul within. With this tool we can get off the mental merry-go-round and choose a more harmonious way of being in the world.

  62. I will be forever grateful to Serge for the understanding I now have of myself and the world and the love that now unfolds in my life and relationships. But one of the greatest gifts is what you have mentioned – that he has shown us that there is so much more to life than the merry-go-round we think is all there is.

  63. Very beautifully written Johanne, this is a very lovely description what it is that makes Universal Medicine so special, it does not tell anyone what to do, it only ads a new ingredient to live, love, and what you truly are.

  64. So true it is up to you to feel, Universal medicine and Serge Benhayon present, but it is left to the individual to decide for themself if they live or apply what is presented. As you say what is offered is a connection back to self, to reconnect to ones own inner self and perhaps, if you choose, begin a relationship of loving, nurturing and honouring you. Never before Universal medicine had I come across this and for me it offers another, truer way to be me in life.

  65. I have noticed people have come to presentations cautious about the different words that Serge presents, but what Serge presents makes so much sense, because it is like true home, then the words don’t seem to bother them anymore because we have a true understanding of them.

  66. Nicely put Johanne. I remember that exact feeling of ‘ I know this, but how do I know?’. I remember listening to a presentation for the first time, or even listening to a friend tell me about a presentation, and that knowing somewhere far in the back of my mind I had heard this before. I remember the memory being distant, but still there. And all it is is the common sense that I chose to leave behind me being re-awakened. Pretty simple and also pretty cool!

  67. So true Johanne, the joyful feeling of coming home, I felt that on my first day of attending a weekend workshop – of finally hearing someone speak what I knew deep down was absolutely true. No pressure, no persuasion, just a presentation for you to take it or leave it.

  68. I too feel like I’m off the merry-go-round, now a days I can see what I was like by watching other people and how they get caught up in what is expected of them taking them further away from their true essence. I am very glad to have been introduced to Universal Medicine, something worth appreciating.

  69. Thank you, Johanne. What a beautiful ‘homecoming’. I too had the same sensation when I first went onto the Universal Medicine website, some years ago, and read something that Serge Benhayon had written. I was reading the words but what struck me was how I was feeling. There was something that stirred deep inside of me that was shouting out, there was a feeling of great familiarity, of coming home.

  70. Love that came from working hard at, and re-educating myself about, self-care and self-nurturing was the missing ingredient for me too. Thanks Johanne.

  71. Yes Johanne, finding Universal Medicine was a homecoming for me too. The greatest gift, is returning to the love we all are.

  72. I have studied the science of God/Love/Life before in my life, but it was always from the head. With Serge Benhayon it just playfully IS. It can be experienced in the body. He is able to answer questions, that I had a lifetime long, in just a few phrases.

  73. It is such a beautiful homecoming when we find True Love, and add this to the mixture of life. A beautiful expression Johanne, thank you.

  74. Thank you Johanne for sharing your experience. You reminded me that in fact I know everything and that my life is about the reunion of body and soul. It can so easily be lost when we lead busy lives where we think we have to live up to a certain ideal, when life is really only about living as a soul on earth and to develop love in everything that we do.

  75. Thanks Johanne – I love what you have shared about life feeling like a merry-go-round. I too felt this until I came across the teachings of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine which has allowed me to jump off that merry-go-round – which feels so freeing. Your analogy of the key ingredient missing ‘of love’ is just divine and so true. After all that is what Serge presents – Iearn to be love. Not to make it about the words but to actually live it.

  76. Thank You Johanne Brown and what you say applies to me in many ways. I too was searching for Truth and all the paths I chose to follow had something missing. It was me I was the missing piece and this is what Serge Benhayon presents.
    I love what you say that we can take it or leave it and that is the reality. He is not ever asking us to follow what he presents, the choice is ours.
    When I first came across this man in 2005, I could not change what I had felt even though I did run for the hills for 6 months as I knew Serge Benhayon was the real deal but my lifestyle was not ready to make this change to being responsible for my choices and taking care of myself.
    No regrets today and I cannot imagine living my old miserable life which really was full of deep hurt and buried issues.

  77. Johanne, there is such a feeling of simplicity from your blog and it seems so very obvious that missing ingredient would be me/my love, and yet before Universal Medicine I too would not have known it!

    1. Yes Judy, looking back one cannot believe that one was unable to see what is so obvious, true and simple. The simplicity of this blog does mirror beautifully the simplicity of the feeling of truly being home.

  78. Yes, we are the missing ingredient! That analogy summed it up for me – for how much less would we complain about the merry-go-round if we only put ourselves on it in full, with all of our Love? Maybe it is that that would turn it all around and return us to the moment we hopped on in the first place? Maybe then we would be free to make a true choice having experienced both ways of being on it? Maybe, one day, we don’t get back on?!

    1. Yes Peta, if we only put ourselves on the merry-go-round in full. I have been monitoring my level of commitment to everything lately and I have discovered that there is a discrepancy between what I tell myself and what my true level of commitment is. It is as if every time I look at this I discover there is a deeper commitment possible and the earlier commitment, although it was commitment, was shallower than I had would have believed.

  79. I knew the moment my daughter told me about a Heart Chakra weekend she had attended, and about the Gentle Breath Meditation. It was there in that moment, the knowing, and the knowing becomes deeper and deeper. We are returning home, so there is no possibility of turning back.

  80. Beautifully expressed Johanne. Your experience of meeting Serge Benhayon and what he presents echo mine so much. I, too, had been searching for the answer to the same questions and although I was comfortable with where I was with them, there still felt to be something missing. Your analogy of the cake is such a good one and that Serge provides the missing ingredient: Love.

  81. I love this. So simple. ” Universal Medicine just presented me back to me” and the missing ingredient in your cake-mix was your own love. This is so beautifully written, “I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had come home was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul ” This perfectly describes the feeling I had after the first healing session I had with Serge Benhayon. Thank you for this lovely blog Johanne.

  82. Thank you Johanne for a super blog. I can sooooo relate to your experience. I was not even put off by the wording even though English is not my first language. I could feel the evergy of the words. I knew I had at last found the Truth and a true way of living.

  83. Yes Johanne, I can so relate to what you share. Before I came across Universal Medicine I knew there had to be more. How amazing to find that the more was me all along!

  84. Johanne, I love the flow and simplicity of your article, the cake mix analogy is brilliant, a joy to read, thank you.

  85. Thankyou Johanne. I love your ” mixing bowl ” analogy. Its ironic that the essential ingredient is simply our love – that is there all the time and we cant feel it for looking outside of ourselves for it !!!

  86. Thank you Johanne, you feeling that there has to be more to life exactly reflects my own experience. Without this more, life actually makes no sense at all. Without it life is meaningless and filled with emptyness. And as you say the more is waiting inside us to be found, whilst we look everywhere but inside for it.

  87. Thank you Johanne for this lovely sharing of the merry go round of life and the missing ingredient, which I knew all too well up until four and a half years ago when I felt the inner pull (that could not be ignored!) to attend my first Universal Medicine presentation.
    I absolutely agree with your words “Universal Medicine just presented Me back to me. I had come home”.
    The opportunity for coming back home to me and being less needy of external approval and recognition is still unfolding day by day through more self loving choices for myself that no one else can make for me.
    Your expression of “The understanding I have of myself, relationships and love continues to unfold: now life, with All of me in it, teaches me back” is also resonating deeply with me. How awesome this is!

  88. I too knew there had to be more than this life, this struggle. Re-learning what my heart already knew simplified everything and it became easy to prioritise the important things and move on from the trivial stuff. It just makes sense!

  89. So beautifully put, Johanne. ‘I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had ‘come home’ was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul.’ This has been my experience as well – stopping the disconnect and feeling joy because I have finally rediscovered and connected back to the love in me and everyone else.

  90. Hi Johanne, thanks for sharing your story. It is great hearing how real that feeling of ‘coming home’ is, like meeting yourself for the first time (in adult life anyway) and how it is totally an insult to call people who attend Universal Medicine courses followers. Each of us discern and choose to go (or not to go) & pay for presentations and workshops, to listen, to experiment what works for us and what doesn’t and in the process in-rich our lives via our choice to bring more love into them. There is no following about it.

  91. I understand the feelings you have shared and as I converse with people I am aware that we all feel this way at times, and like you when we do not have the answer or even know exactly what it is we are looking for we put it to the side until this feeling nags us again. I am so glad you found your missing ingredient, Uni Med also supported me in finding my missing ingredient. Thanks Johanne

  92. Thanks Johanne
    I agree, The students of UM are not followers,
    There is love, dedication and sheer will required to live in the way presented. I have found as fascinating as I find it to hear what is presented, that is a tiny shadow to how awesome it is when aspects of living it emerge in my life. Then I too, deeply understand what the missing aspect of my life , LOVE, has been.
