by Beverley Croft, South Coast, NSW
I just wanted to share how I felt and what I wrote a few days after I returned home to the South Coast of NSW, from my last trip up to the North Coast for Sacred Esoteric Healing Level 4 and our final wonderful weekend of 2012, with the end of year celebration.
What a wonderful year, 2012 has been. What a start to a New Era!
The changes I can feel within myself this year have been profound. And how much easier it is now to make these changes than it was in the past. I can feel so much love in the world now, and I find it so much easier now to connect to it. I feel it expanding and expanding within me, and how available it is for everyone.
Only a few years ago I was so very unsure of myself, fearful and almost friendless. Now I have a quiet confidence, feel full of love for myself and for all of humanity, have lots of friends, and feel joyful for so much of the time.
Yes, I have a long way to go yet, I am very much a work in progress and slip back from time to time but hey, it is worth it for the changes that have already happened within me. And it is not just for me, I must be such an incredibly different person to be around now.
Yes, there have been many hiccups along the way, the media onslaught was pretty distracting in the second half of 2012, and very hurtful to many, but just look at how so many students have grown so incredibly in that time. The strength and love in many, really is a wonder to behold. So many have stepped up to express in the ways in which they each best can. I see such a great confidence in many students now, there is such a glow in them.
And the final weekend of this year’s events – wow, what a celebration. Such joy, amongst many… a quiet but sustaining joy.
The celebration evening was just so incredible. No drugs, no alcohol, but hundreds of people just being themselves, yes, letting their hair down, dancing with such joy, the feeling of love in the room was wonderful.
Thanks to Serge Benhayon and his family and Universal Medicine for showing us how to live in this wonderful joy-full way.

More has changed in the last few years than I could of ever imagined in my early 20’s. Everything you have mentioned I have equally experienced and I can’t currently see an end in sight. And increasingly, I’d rather not have an end in sight.
The end of the year is the end of a cycle of many daily cycles lived in a quality that every single day can be revised, dismissed, adjusted or confirmed, moment by moment. To celebrate in such Joy, free of substances that distract and numb the body, there must be a great confirmation of the living quality experienced in those cycles, as that Joy can ‘t be improvised or pretended. Thanks Serge, for offering the tools that make possible to live in such sustained magnificence here on earth.
Beverley it is so true, that everything is available to us, and the art to changing ourselves is within us all. We simply have to make the choice to do so. And having ‘hiccups’ along the way, is better for our development than having no development opportunities if we sat around and allowed for nothing to occur.
I could not agree with you more that the end of the year celebration, is about celebrating us, to how far we have come from the beginning to the end – so why not celebrate in style. Celebrations with no alcohol or consumed by the silly season is fun and joy to be around, I now feel the need to be there to celebrate me and how far I have come – thanks to everyone involved, but most of all, thanks to me for going there.
“The strength and love in many, really is a wonder to behold.” I agree Beverley, and it’s our natural way to be the love we are. It’s truly beautiful to watch a women walk past me in her sacredness and love for herself and understand all she brings to the world, or watch a man in his tenderness and delicateness as he interacts with others, and the strength he has in these qualities. As we return to being our natural soulful selves we are each a wonder to behold.
The end of the year is a good time to reflect on how much we have grown and also a good time to stop to appreciate all the true things we have taken on board in our lives on a day to day basis. Really though we would want to do this more regularly than just once per year! 🙂
I’m with you on the more regular celebrations and time to reflect and appreciate!
Most people celebrate their end of the year with things that take themselves out of who they truly are, and that is their choice too. Any celebrations to truly appreciate us is worth celebrating, however it is done. I have learnt to appreciate the small things/changes to the bigger things/changes, and equally they are just as important. Nothing beats the art of reflecting, reflecting to all that there is another way to do and be.
True growth and evolution cannot be measured by the outside aspects, but more so by the inner connection with our return to Soul.
This is beautiful to hear Beverley, ‘ I have a quiet confidence, feel full of love for myself and for all of humanity, have lots of friends, and feel joyful for so much of the time.’
Every person deserves this.
As we approach the end of another year and the beginning of another it’s great to stop and appreciate what this last year has brought to us. Many new learnings and opportunities to grow, some we have accepted and others we haven’t, but that is all ok. Making the choice to live more and more of ourselves is a great gift and is always worth celebrating, not just at the end of a year but at any moment.
I agree Beverley ‘The strength and love in many, really is a wonder to behold.’ and it just gets stronger and stronger … with love. The Sacred Esoteric Healing modalities are absolute gold. After having a few days of feeling completely energetically whacked and trying several things to get me back I finally asked my dear friend and flat mate for some hands on healing that was much needed. In just 5 minutes I started to come back to me and feel the loveliness and stillness within my body again. 5 minutes is all it took. These modalities should be in everybody’s home they are a huge support for all with regards to true wellbeing.
Although we have no privileges, the students of Universal Medicine are privileged witnesses of the magnificent developments that are taking place with the advent of the Aquarius Era in a level of awareness that is having an enormous impact on how we live and how we feel life altogether.
Like the scales of justice, when there is more love available than ever before, it takes an equal and opposite force to counter that.
Like you say the response to 2012 and everything that happened was that the student body stepped up… individually and collectively. We look now 6 years on, and I see the lived examples of that all around me – people stepping up, taking more responsibility, shining brighter, and being more of themselves. We could wish for nothing more.
How entrapping is to feel that with us there is no way! How beautiful is to find The Way and feel how things start naturally falling in their places!
‘The changes I can feel within myself this year have been profound’… With each new year that passes it brings us new opportunities – and we tend to focus on what we want to change and nominate as our ‘new year’s resolutions’. But how often do we ever stop and just appreciate what we have learned and grown from in the preceding year, for that is actually the quality of foundations of what we build the new year upon.
“But how often do we ever stop and just appreciate what we have learned and grown from in the preceding year, for that is actually the quality of foundations of what we build the new year upon.” Beautifully said Suse and a beautiful approach. This brings a totally different quality to life and how we move forward, carried by the grandness we are instead of feeling already doomed by the things we feel obliged to achieve.
It is amazing way to be able to reflect back on a year in true appreciation, feeling ready for more.
It is beautiful to reflect back in appreciation of where we are now, the growth and expansion that has taken place.
Lovely to read the changes you have made, and a really beautiful way to celebrate.
“What a start to a New Era!” A few circuits around the Sun and the love and deeper understanding keeps growing as does the appreciation of the responsibility that we have to inspire others with the joy within.
I can say the same, I see so much more in the world than I have before I attended Universal Medicine courses.
When we are blessed by what we have re-connected to, it is our responsibility to share this with those whom have yet to experience such re-connection to themselves. Love is never isolated to one person and cannot be owned by anyone, it is equally for all as it always has been.
Beautiful Beverly. When we connect to our inner-most essence, our Soul, we realise there is an inexhaustible amount of love to live in this world. It is inspiring to also realise that it is through the love we live, that we offer more love to be available to be lived in the world. Such is our true purpose, our responsibility, our power – to live and reflect who we truly are.
Thank you Beverley, great to read about the changes you have experienced, it’s been pretty profound for me too in terms of the changes I now live thanks to Universal Medicine. Despite the lies in the media, Universal Medicine and its student body go from strength to strength, it’s the real deal. Like yourself when I reflect back on how I was before I came to this work I was miserable and unable really find my way out of it, and what I now live I never thought was possible in terms of the love and joy I feel.
Absolutely Beverley, huge thanks and appreciation to Serge and his family for showing us a different way to be and live in this world, ‘Thanks to Serge Benhayon and his family and Universal Medicine for showing us how to live in this wonderful joy-full way.’
An inspiring blog of you appreciating and taking stock of how you have evolved over the years, beautiful in itself to have seen and felt.
Yes, thanks to Universal Medicine for being the leading Light on earth and the true change this is to return to who we all are.
Beverley I have known you personally for years now and have watched you make these profound changes for many years now, it is beautiful to watch you continually unfold and to express more of you truly are.
Wouldn’t it be great to get Beverley’s latest update? It could even be a before and after Universal Medicine – I agree she is an inspiring lady and there is more for her to inspire!
“Only a few years ago I was so very unsure of myself, fearful and almost friendless. Now I have a quiet confidence, feel full of love for myself and for all of humanity, have lots of friends, and feel joyful for so much of the time.” Reading this fills my heart with Joy.
When there is a connection to love, joy and harmony then the desire for things such as drugs and alcohol dissipate. Just being the truth of who we are is enough.
I love how you marvel at the changes you have made and have come to enjoy life knowing your part in it and celebrating it.
There is nothing more heart-warming than to read of someone truly appreciating how far they have come in transforming their life and showing others what is possible. From what you have shared about the joy you now feel, along with your newly found confidence and friends, you sound like an incredibly different person… and that is absolutely worth celebrating.
There is so much to appreciate about every modality, course, workshop and celebration Universal Medicine holds… and the choices many have made as a result. I love how you mention Beverley that how different you must now feel to others when they are around you… it’s made me consider how un-imposing I now am to be around than I was when I was steeped in emotion, anxiety and running on nervous energy and blame. Wow what a powerful reflection we are when we let go of anything that is not us.
The unimed celebrations are absolutely magnificent! And you don’t have a dreadful hangover the next morning!
Thank you Beverley for sharing the joy you felt in the Universal Medicine yearly celebrations and in your own life now, I have been a party to those celebrations, so clear clean full of joy and love.
“No drugs, no alcohol, but hundreds of people just being themselves, yes, letting their hair down, dancing with such joy, the feeling of love in the room was wonderful.” Beverly I wished I had joined this celebration as it is really very rare to celebrate without alcohol – how inspirational is that!
There is nothing greater than celebrating who we are, and that needs nothing more than the fullness of ourselves.
I can really relate to what you share here Beverley “Yes, I have a long way to go yet, I am very much a work in progress and slip back from time to time but hey, it is worth it for the changes that have already happened within me. And it is not just for me, I must be such an incredibly different person to be around now.” It’s the best love affair ever!
Yes. Whatever really crazy story the media did and will report about Universal Medicine, Serge Benahyon and the Students of The Way of the Livingness – the life of many many people have changed to a greater and goes on to become more joyful every day. This is a truth and can not be denied. It is lived.
I love this blog Beverly for the so many ways you have expressed your appreciation to Universal Medicine, to Serge Benhayon and his family, to the Universal Medicine students and to yourself and I would like to express my appreciation to you, for being and sharing with us all of the wonderful you you are.
Beverly thank you so much for sharing your experience you have had with Serge Benhayon and all the people around you.
“Now I have a quiet confidence, feel full of love for myself and for all of humanity, have lots of friends, and feel joyful for so much of the time.” Beautiful to read Beverley. And three years on this feeling is more evident in the Universal Medicine student body. Knowing that we have responsibility – but not just for ourselves – but for everyone we meet – as everything we think, say and do affects us all. ‘Everything is energy’ – Einstein. And ‘everything is because of energy’ – Serge Benhayon.
2016 and we have just experienced another amazing SEH Level 4 and enjoy an end of courses celebration this evening entitled ‘The Sands of Time’ The unfolding and openness with each other among the students is beautiful to feel as we all realise that there is renewed commitment to the purpose of our every day lives.
Beverley, I can feel your joy coming through in your blog :). I agree that there is a real glow and feeling of warmth and acceptance amongst the students when we gather for Universal Medicine events. I can picture how this must feel for others who come in contact with students during and after these events as students grow in themselves and then radiate a new level of confidence to the world. The impact can’t be fully known but speaking for myself, I have seen its powerful effects on others around me and know that others are inspired to grow in their own self acceptance and self appreciation. They start to recognise the difference even small changes have on their own lives and those around them and so the wheels of change keeps happening.
All Universal Medicine events and celebrations are amazing. This year started with the students celebrating at the start of the year with the Girl To Women Festival at Lennox Head, which was a stand out success again for the 2nd year. Young, old, all participants as well as the presenters and students had a amazing time celebrating the love and joy of being themselves just as one does when a family celebrates coming together, which is no different from any of the celebrations where the students of the Livingness come together.
It is an easy observation how many of us have a problem with confirmation and appreciation. I myself easily invest into difficult tasks, hot topics and delicate discussions, but leave out the confirmation part where I sit down and simply acknowledge what is there, specially within myself. A beautiful move, Beverley, to offer us appreciation.
I loved reading your appreciation of yourself Beverley and all the beautiful changes you have made with the support of Universal Medicine – this is certainly worth celebrating.

Agree, sounds like an amazing gathering.
Thank you Beverley for sharing your appreciation of your continuing expansion. Truly worth noting and celebrating and allowing of the ever increasing nature of this.
Everyday in our lives we are all learning, we are all work in progress and as you share Beverly, its just lovely to celebrate this fact with others.
That celebration is one I shall remember all of my days. To feel so free to dance and sing with a group of people doing the same without needing stimulants was so amazing. I realised at that moment that all my years of drunken partying in my younger days paled into comparison in terms of true enjoyment that filled my heart and body. Wow!
What a beautiful account of your feelings and observations Beverly. It’s so wonderful to stop and reflect on the great choices you’ve made and to celebrate the amazing transformations that have taken place and continue to take place. This is grace and a true blessing.
All truly worth celebrating, Beverly, as are you!
This is true Carmen.
Great to read this blog and remember 2012 and how far we have come! It is so important to stop, take stock and appreciate where we are at, from that place we can truly move forward.
I agree Judith that taking stock and appreciating where we are at supports us to truly move forward.
Beverly I love how you have celebrated yourself and so many in our community in this blog. 2012 was indeed a great year for us all and it has only grown from there.
Beautifully expressed Beverley – I love the way you appreciate yourself and all the changes you have made it’s very inspiring.
“The celebration evening was just so incredible. No drugs, no alcohol, but hundreds of people just being themselves” – In my drinking days it would never have occurred to me that celebrations could be so much fun without some sort of stimulant so I would always make sure I was pre-loaded.
But then I remember having awesome parties as a kid… no alcohol or drugs there (although the sugar may have hyped things up a little), and sure enough its more fun as an adult as you can actually remember what you were doing!
Great point simonwilliams8. How is it that parties were so great when we were young without the need for alcohol or drugs and yet as adults many need these substances to have a good time? In fact in my early adult years without drugs and alcohol you could not call it a party. What has happened when most people require a stimulant of some sort in order to ‘have a good time’?
I love feeling the appreciation you have for yourself, and rightly so as your transformation is inspirational. Through the self-loving choices you have made you now reflect that there is another way to live, one that is wonderfully joyful – thank you Beverley. Absolutely worth celebrating.
This is HUGE. A celebration with loads of joy and fun and no alcohol, stimulants or drugs! Simply Amazing.
I agree Beverley the student celebrations by Universal Medicine are so much fun. No alcohol, no drugs, no dressing to impress just an opportunity to celebrate ourselves, life and each other with joy. I never thought I could enjoy being me so much and this is just the beginning- a dipping the toe in. I can feel that there is so much more joy and love in me to come out and I sooo look forward to this opening out.
You sound very refreshed and ignited into the new year.. what a great way to start off the year, your attitude about it is awesome to feel. Very ready.
Your appreciation of yourself and the expansion of the love you are experiencing due to your choices is truly lovely to read and absolutely deserved of celebrating it so joyfully and in true Unimed style.
It’s wonderful to read someone sharing their immense change and sense of divinity; what’s even more wonderful is the fact that I actually relate to these types of blogs and surely this inspires others to foster the same qualities and feelings in themselves because of it.
This was a beautiful stock taking exercise. How are you doing now?
A celebration not just for one evening, but one that is constant throughout everyday. When we appreciate and celebrate who we are, it’s simple to do this everyday. Thank you Beverly for the joy in which you share your blog.
A gorgeous expression of the love you are Beverley and an amazing marker for us all. As I am learning – appreciation of where we are at and how far we have come is so important in providing the foundation for where we next will go. What a beautiful foundation you have set.
A delicate love that we all deserve. (:
Thank you Beverly for sharing the joy and experience of being the love that you are.
‘A quiet but sustaining joy’ – yes that has become my normal thanks to my relationship with Universal Medicine, the Benhayons and my huge extended family, the Universal Medicine student body.
What I noted in your blog particularly was the role that expression plays in helping us all grow and develop strength and confidence, enabling us to be more of who we really are.
I agree, Cathy, very much still a work in progress. As Serge presents, “Expression is everything”.
Its an incredibly powerful tool, and we all benefit from keeping on practising as much as we can.
Lovely blog – thank you, it resonates with experiences I myself have had with Universal Medicine. The end of the year is a great time to reflect and confirm what has passed. Celebration, it feels great reading this a couple of days before 2015 comes into being officially!
It is inspiring to read how your life is unfolding and changes have happened and are happening within yourself. Awesome:)
Thank you for sharing Beverley. I love the honesty in which you express how life was, and how it is today. A true inspiration.
I remember 2012 and the awesome workshops and courses presented by Serge Benhayon that year. I will cherish it for ever. I felt truely blessed to live it, to be part of the start of the new era.
Beautiful to read and feel ‘you’ in these words Beverley. Your joy in and for life is inspiring, thank you!
Wonderful sharing Beverley… of you unfolding you from the inside out and how the world is reflecting that back to you in such beautiful ways. Sure it’s not perfect but we now know it’s not about perfection but instead a gentle process that is truly honouring and unique to you. Having done a lot of serious partying in my past I can’t agree more that the Universal Medicine parties are awesome. Feeling the ‘true joy’ of celebration in union with everyone and without any substances…. is amazing!
Totally agree with you Beverley. When the music starts at Universal Medicine parties, the students are up and dancing. No waiting around, shyness or alcohol needed for courage to get up on the dance floor at these gigs. Who wants to wait around for joy?
So true Rod – “Who wants to wait around for joy?”
Beverley, it is wonderful to not just read of the changes you have experienced – but also I have been blessed to see these changes in you. Thank you for being such a inspiration.
Agree Beverley! It’s been a wonderful time for us all and I love the honesty and celebration in this writing, thank you!
To be in the company of many people expressing openly, joyfully, lovingly and with confidence through dance and music at the Universal Medicine end of year celebration was, as you say Beverley, wonderful. It is glorious that we get to live this everyday if we choose it.
