I recently attended a Universal Medicine Saturday event where I discovered the impact our movements have on our body and all that surrounds us. I could understand the impact on people, but this time around I began to realise that our surroundings include our relationships with each and every object we come into contact with, and this is of equal importance.
It made me stop to review how often I would move in a hurry or constantly move in the zone of wanting to get from A to B, not taking into consideration the speed in which I would place my plate on the table, how I would open and shut doors or the simplicity of plugging a cord into a socket, all of which are movements that impact on each and every one of us.
In many ways my movements were classic to those of any inbuilt drive motor that was constantly in top gear and would only switch to the ‘off’ mode when the exhaustion levels kicked in – never realising all that I was in contact with and what mark I had left behind.
Taking this on board, and with what I discovered at the workshop, I became aware of how over time my movements did change. With no perfection, I was more open to moving in my home and workspace with less drive and becoming aware of the responsibility that my movements carry. Over time I noticed that even though I had changed my movements there was still an element of drive that was pushing me in my daily routine, and that when I stopped I could feel the tension I was still carrying. The self-care was there, but not to the level that I knew was true and it didn’t feel as though this was coming from my body.
A lesson in the simplicity of movement …
Last week I was asked to make a quick dash to the shops to buy a gift for a work colleague in one of the local shopping centres. It was a busy Saturday afternoon and I only had an hour to spare before I needed to be at another appointment. As I entered the gift shop I was greeted with a busy showroom full of customers buying from the sales rack. Each shop assistant was serving and the traffic was consistent. I viewed the various pieces of jewelry in the glass cabinets and waited patiently to be served by the staff.
As I looked up to make eye contact I noticed a small bubble floating in the air. I turned to see where it could have come from. There was no bubble making machines on display. This bubble literally came out of nowhere but I had a feeling that there was a lesson to be learnt.
I observed the bubble as it circled the room. Its small yet simple spherical shape made its way effortlessly to all the corners of the gift shop. It floated up high and came down low. Amongst all this were people moving around quite frantically in a buying frenzy. The bubble did not jolt or react when customers moved at a fast pace. The bubble kept steady and slid along the front counter case with no one realising it was there and then took off again. It circled a couple that were disagreeing over which item to buy and then landed on the table top near me. I stood and looked at the bubble. It was clear, transparent and delicate in its structure. It was not hiding, rushing or holding back what it was – a simple bubble moving delicately amongst the crowd.
I noticed the bubble …
- Kept its own pace
- Stopped every so often and then took off again
- Travelled high and low and was not affected by the crowds coming in and out
- Rested on surfaces that would have been considered high traffic spots and was never crushed
- Was transparent, yet easy to miss with a blink of an eye
- Didn’t react or jolt when customers moved by at a fast pace
- Moved in one direction and the other effortlessly but with a purpose
The bubble then made its way down the tiled entrance area, smack bang in the middle of the busy pathway. I was sure that this bubble would be gone in a matter of seconds. I watched and observed how it sat patiently, did not move, held its own and was still in its full state.
Within a few minutes I was being attended to by the staff and purchased the gift. On my way out the door I stopped to see if the bubble was still there. Sure enough there the bubble stood – still in its full size as more people entered the shops – not wavering from its position.
As I left, I came to realise that I was being shown a lesson in how my movements could be; where I am still holding my space, yet not affecting all that is around me, from the people, to the angles of the cupboards, to the shapes of the doors and cabinets. Everything is part of a whole and this bubble was showing me the delicateness of who I am and how I can live unrattled, unwavering, and be part of the whole movement of the universe just like the delicate and fragile bubble.
My deep appreciation to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine for presenting the work of the Ancient Wisdom that offers the opportunity to be inspired to bring simplicity back into our lives in the simplest of ways, knowing that we all have a part to play in the movements we make in this amazing universe we live in.

763 thoughts on “THE MOVING BUBBLE – A Simple Lesson in Staying with my Movements and Claiming Who I Am ”
I have discovered that one of the ways to check in on my body and how it moves is via the swimming pool.
It’s as though the water magnifies our movements, so that the drive to push through our day is clearly defined. Just by clocking how we move through the water supports us to as you say anonymous to feel the tension we carry in our bodies without realising it.
I loved the delicacy of this statement, “Everything is part of a whole and this bubble was showing me the delicateness of who I am and how I can live unrattled, unwavering, and be part of the whole movement of the universe just like the delicate and fragile bubble”. I could feel this statement and the importance for us to not rush into everything. There is a big difference, because in the rush we receive the obstructions. In the space, time and motion seems to stand still. Wouldn’t that be interesting for science to experience.
What has been bought to our awareness is that everything on this planet matters, and everyone and every thing plays a role in it. When we impact an area by our disregard, indulgences etc, we do not know the impact it has on another as the ripple isn’t seen by the naked eye.
There is much to our lives than our physicality.
What a beautiful way to have a lesson, ‘I came to realise that I was being shown a lesson in how my movements could be; where I am still holding my space, yet not affecting all that is around me, from the people, to the angles of the cupboards, to the shapes of the doors and cabinets.’
“It was clear, transparent and delicate” A beautiful Magic of God message for us all.
I could feel the delicacy of this bubble. In the rush no one would have noticed that bubble. When we stop for a moment, we observe that God is continually speaking to us. It’s us that don’t notice that magic…
Hence fragility and delicateness can be a strength. And this is no oximoron, for true strength comes from ones ability to be open and vulnerable.
Another analogy of how the quality of movement or energy can affect everyone around us is if we were to pee in a swimming pool full of water – the urine makes its way all around the pool even if you cannot see it and hence encircles (and affects) everyone. In our sea or energy that the world is, we cannot escape the choices another makes. But we can choose to observe this and do the best we can to not react and instead see how we may have contributed to the situation (have we acted as a role model previously and done the same thing? Have we not spoken up to support another in the way that was needed? Or have we judged and condoned another without feeling what was truly needed?…). So many things to consider here.
How we move and how it can affect ourselves and others is best understood with the analogy of moving in a swimming pool. If we jump into a swimming pool full of water, we create waves and splashes on others and also against the swimming pool walls which then returns back to us. If we disturb the water in any way it goes out and comes back in that same quality. No different to the fact that we live in a world of energy and even without water, the energy around us does the same thing. When we consider it this way, I find it easier to see how even our simple movements can affect us and others instantly.
A great visual example of what is happening in our world all around us, and so the importance of how we move.
Henrietta Chang That is it exactly, so well expressed I have just left a comment about how the swimming pool reflects our movements back to us by the quality of the water that we move. There is a man who goes swimming and it is possible to tell from the way he swims that he is very angry, we may feel the anger on land because we feel everything but it is magnified in the water. It’s fascinating that we can use the magnification of the water to support us to understand how we then move on land.
To hold ourselves steady no matter what goes on around us is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and others. This does not need to be done with perfection but a simple willingness to be the observer and learn and be open to what one sees.
Having a life style bubble will assuredly pervade our life at some stage and will need to be looked into so we can move around without reacting to what is happening around us.
I too am getting more deeply the impact “the impact our movements have on our body and all that surrounds us.” Responsibility being called for big time as awareness deepens for us all.
There have been moments in life when I have felt like that bubble, moving effortlessly through crowds. Each time the focus has been on allowing myself to be moved rather than trying to control the situation and mentally work out which way am I going to go to dodge people.
It was very magical how the bubble kept moving in space, ‘The bubble did not jolt or react when customers moved at a fast pace. The bubble kept steady and slid along the front counter case with no one realising it was there and then took off again. It circled a couple that were disagreeing over which item to buy and then landed on the table top near me.’
Life is full of symbols to deepen and inspire us and magical when we’re aware of the offering.
There is so much we can discover in the quality of our daily movements and how they can affect our health and wellbeing.
We seem to be in a constant hurry to get things done and on to the next thing. Because I fall into this category I decided to conduct an experiment on how I use my seat belt to click my self into the drivers seat and how I unfasten it when I want to exit the car. When I’m thinking of something else, the next place to be, what I need to get at the supermarket etc., I put the seat belt on automatically without thinking. But if I focus on what I’m doing from moment to moment putting on my seat belt or unfastening it is a pure pleasure. When I’m not thinking about my seat belt the action is empty and now I stop because I can feel that emptiness in my body and if feels awful.
A great experiment to conduct Mary, showing the importance of putting your attention on what you are doing in the moment.
It’s amazing really that a bubble is so delicate and fragile yet it’s movements are so graceful despite the busy environment. It is a reflection for me that I too can hold the grace, magic, beauty and delicateness wherever I am.
As you say the bubble reflects possibilities held within each one of us to bring magic, grace and delicacy where-ever we are.
And with purpose, ‘Moved in one direction and the other effortlessly but with a purpose’.
When we become aware of the energetic quality of our movements and how this can affect others perhaps we would be more responsible with the quality of our movements.
Well said Chan – for awareness is the first step for all of us in realizing we may need to change the way we do things or how we move.
Being aware of the quality of our movements is super important as there are such wide reaching implications from our every move.
‘a simple bubble moving delicately amongst the crowd.’ how awesome to experience this playful magic of God. When we rush we are not able to see how delicate we all are and how we can move in unity with each other when moving in our own rhythm.
This is gorgeous what it reminded me of was a child and how even in all the busyness and bustle around them children are in tune with the magic that is all around. Lovely that you have allowed yourself to reconnect with this.
Yes, it is a gorgeous sharing, magic and playfulness always make lessons so much more fun.
I am beginning to have an awareness of just how much I live life in autopilot mode so therefore every movement is made in this mode. Bringing more attention to the detail of my movements I know will take time just because I have never given any consideration to the detail of the movement. We are taught how to walk to get from A to B but we have not been taught to bring awareness to how we move. Is it possible that this is why we have back problems within our society because we have not paid attention to the way we move but relied on the mechanics of movement which is completely different.
The magic of God and the messages are all around us every day but it seems to depend on how we are moving that will then allow us to notice or not. This is such a great example.
I have usually been in a hurry and most of the time managed to be exactly on time. That is a lot of unnecessary stress as we can start a little earlier, not be in a hurry and arrive a little early and be much more ready for the meeting.
Early in life I knew I didn’t like the feeling of anxiety inherent in running late and arriving just in time. Now, I hold the intention to arrive before the start time of any meeting, this ensures, I enjoy the journey and arrive feeling more prepared and settled.
I prefer to arrive to appointments and meetings early, so I am settled and ready for what is next.
I love coming back to this blog. It lovingly reminds me that there is always a deeper level, without judgment, for me to connect to in my movements – not to remain in comfort with where I have deepened to.
What a gorgeous analogy of just being yourself and holding your space no matter what is going on around. There is such simplicity in that – a great lesson for all of us.
It certainly is Monica. The key is to not morph ourselves to suit others but to stay connected with ourselves and be who we are, holding a loving space without compromise.
Monicag2 I had to stop listening to an audio book because I could feel the tension from listening to it was having on my body and the thoughts I was having. This is just one small example of how if we do not stay present with ourselves via our breath, how we can be taken in.This example of the energy coming through the audio book was changing my thoughts which was changing my movements to take me away from myself into the fantasy of the book. It was because my thoughts had changed that I was able to ask myself the question of what’s going on here. But how many of us listen to music, watch films and videos without discerning what the energy is coming through them. So learning how to hold our space no matter what is going on around us is such a valuable teaching.
A great lesson which shows that we can be all that we are, in any situation, and the joy that comes with that is reflected for all to see, whether they choose to see it or not.
Totally agree with everything you say here anonymous
“My deep appreciation to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine for presenting the work of the Ancient Wisdom that offers the opportunity to be inspired to bring simplicity back into our lives in the simplest of ways, knowing that we all have a part to play in the movements we make in this amazing universe we live in.”
Serge Benhayon has brought back the magic of the universe and God, something that has been missing from our lives for a very long time, it’s always been there but we as a race of human beings have ignored our surroundings in a rush to get somewhere when actually we are going nowhere except round in circles. Perhaps if we were in less of a rush because after all we are going nowhere, we could slow down and in the slowing down it is possible our health would improve as the stress of rushing is having a negative impact on our bodies.
As you say Mary the magic and love of God has, and is, always here, it is just that we have not only ignored we have chosen to deny this. Serge Benhayon shows this to us and reflects the Path of Return home to the bosom of God.
“Serge Benhayon has brought back the magic of the universe and God, something that has been missing from our lives for a very long time”, this is so true Mary, the words ‘God’ and ‘religion’ have lost their beauty, they have been bastardised and changed away from their true meanings at great loss to human life. Serge has restored the purity of their meaning not from what he has said, but from what he has lived first and then shared from that Livingness, and this is something we can all reconnect to.
I love how you connect the words God and Religion with beauty, we have made them into a struggle, and something exclusive, not feeling the beauty of what they truly mean and bring.
I was at a community event last weekend and there was a huge bubble making stick that children and their parents could play with. The bubbles that were made were huge and small. There was joy and delight with everyone as the wind took the bubbles into the air and as they danced and bounced over heads and trees. Their colours were spectacular too. Grace, joy and playful… the bubbles showed us our true nature.
What I can feel from the way you describe how the bubble was moving is how free and open the body feels when it is just allowed to collect itself and move in response, and there comes a sense of purpose, but I am not directing it. There is something there deep within I cannot quite describe, but it feels like the ultimate yes to be in that way of moving. I guess that might be what we would call obedience.
Moving in space in alignment with the Divine plan.
We are led to think that to be in our delicateness can be weak and fragile, but this shows us that it can be our biggest strength and that it is OK to bring that to the world – even a super busy one.
It is very beautiful how we all get the exact message we need if we choose to see. Actually we get the message whether we choose to see or not. For someone else the bubble might have burst immediately and for many they would not have even seen the bubble.
Very much so. It does not even need to be something as striking as a bubble but can be something much smaller.
A beautiful reflection of ‘going with the flow’ of your own movements and not being affected by all around you.
And always so lovely to watch the bubbles in their flow.
This bubble is amazing as a symbol of how our movements can be – steady, present, purposeful, with strength and with grace.
Many people might find it challenging to be in busy situations, to hold themselves and to not get overwhelmed. Your sharing gives the simple tips of how we can hold ourselves when we stay with ourselves, feel our body and the stillness inside us and observe but not react or move differently.
This bubble is a gorgeous gift and offering and has presented a great lesson in consistency, commitment, respect and steadfastness.What a wonderful reflection it was and still is.
Reading this blog again today brought an awareness of the vast spherical bubble that we are always held within – the un-wavering bubble of the Body of God. Thank you Anonymous.
“Sure enough there the bubble stood – still in its full size as more people entered the shops – not wavering from its position”.
That is a BIG bubble!
We learn to use movement at the service of doing. This changes when we discover that movement can be at the service of being as well and when we connect to this, even the quality of our doing changes.
Very erudite observation and comment; movement is in stillness and can come from stillness and when it does, it enriches everyone and everything, to the furthest corners of the universe.
gabrieleconrad I totally agree with you from my own experience I was part of a group that took part in a webcast in a different time zone to me, one of the presenters had a quality of stillness and divineness that I could feel and it was very enriching as without a word being spoken the movements showed that it was possible for everyone to be in the deep settlement and grace that was being offered. so if I could feel this quality then everyone was able to feel it whether they realised this or not. We do not live in isolation to each other or the universe as we are led to believe, it’s a complete fabrication.
What a gorgeous observation and reading shared with us exposing how when we choose a willingness to be open to what is on offer we can learn so much that will support us in everyday life observing the reflections around us rather than focusing on our world and what needs to get done.
This is a very beautiful blog sharing the lesson you were given so that it can be an inspiration to us all is very magical.
My take away from this blog is captured by these words
“Everything is part of a whole and this bubble was showing me the delicateness of who I am and how I can live unrattled, unwavering, and be part of the whole movement of the universe just like the delicate and fragile bubble.”
In the past few days I participated in a group Walking Therapy Session lead by Serge Benhayon where we were guide to walk focusing on our feet, arms and hips such that it was like we gliding like the bubble as we walked. Beautiful to experience and witness and I definitely intend to keep practicing to maintain that focus as I walk until it becomes my norm.
This beautiful bubble and the way it moves is such a great image to remind us to stick to our own grace, gentle, steady rhythm instead of the usual hurly burley and race.
This bubble is the antithesis of the chaos of human life and shows us that it is possible to hold steady and be unaffected in one’s every ways and every movement.
Yes how to be beautiful, delicate, transparent and free in our movements!
The bubble is a beautiful reflection of how it is possible to live and move in the world without being affected by what’s going on around us – transparency is the key.
When we get caught in the hustle and bustle of daily life noticing a bubble in an environment where it should not be can bring us to a stop for a moment to pause, reflect and begin again with fresh eyes looking at that same environment.
