Hold on, let me just do a Quick Spell Check – Conforming or Confirming our True Expression?

Have you ever noticed that every time you go to write an email, send a letter or complete a work task, how conditioned we have become to do a quick spell check – or our computers are ready to provide us with an array of blue, red and green underlines to highlight what doesn’t conform to the writing standards?

I do see the benefits as we may be focussed on getting our expression down and we can overlook or mis-spell words, but in recent months I have noticed that when I am editing my own or other people’s writing that the true expression that confirms what that person feels to write may not always fit the norm.

Have we been conditioned to think it’s the only way when the depth of our expression is felt in a far greater way when the sentences may look like they are too long, a comma may not be put in the position that it’s expected BUT the expression leaves us pondering for days and leaves us feeling the depth of truth in the words?

There is this underlying feel that we can often conform to the beliefs of how to write, rather than staying true and confirming what we write.

How often are we writing from the depths of our connection with another and expressing this for all? Or are we writing to conform to the standards that yes, tick the boxes, but offer little more?

Accepted Expression vs Accelerated Flow

Having read several of Serge Benhayon’s books over the years, I often felt myself go back and read a sentence time and time again as I had been so conditioned into judging it was too long, difficult to read or was missing the commas that I was taught to identify as being in the right spots. Learning to let go of these standards and connecting to the flow and volume offered, I have become aware that words hold an energetic expression way beyond all the spelling rules and grammatical workings.

“Truth in word: This is the first key to true understanding.” (1)

Serge’s books offer the choice to be read from the body and to let go of the conditioning of the mind. An opportunity to feel the deep impact the words are having on healing the body, rather than feeding the body more knowledge in the way we are accustomed to.

From this I got to feel and read that Serge Benhayon does not write from an accepted expression but offers the volume of accelerated flow in each sentence and the abundance of healing in each word, sentence, paragraph and chapter.

As a keen writer and with writing being one of the major aspects of my profession, I have come to realise that yes, the spell check and sentence structure is a major component of how we are able to transfer a message from one person to another, however, the depth of how we write may not fit that norm, yet will be offering a far greater level of sharing that supports humanity and all to read, learn and evolve – and this is worth it I say!

Inspired by the readings and books of Serge Benhayon. Writing that holds the gift of true healing and brotherhood for all.

  1. Maybe if we understood how many lies are being told told every day we would do an about face and lovingly dedicate our lives to being one of truth as is presented by Serge Benhayon.

  2. Writing may need to break the rules at times to jolt us out of the automatic way we can read, if not skim, over words as knowledge and information, and the expectations we have for it to be a certain way. When something is constructed differently it can ‘awaken’ us out of auto-pilot to be more present and truly receive what’s being expressed. Those kinds of stop moments have happened a few times for me reading Serge Benhayon’s books.

  3. The energetic imprint that words bring to every situation is also something that needs to be understood as the energy in words and there True meaning energetically makes all the difference to what a sentence offers us.

  4. Writing has a been the biggest challenge for me and I still struggle with it to this day. I’ve always compared it to the way others write and felt not good enough, with even having a belief that bigger, intellectual words makes a better writer. At times when I connect within myself, I tap into wisdom and everything just flows, although it isn’t always consistent.

    It is true we all have our natural expression and in the writing, we can feel that person. For me, I like to keep things simple, so my writing is simple, which is great on the one hand, but not so great on the other, when this style of expression isn’t always accepted in work or university environment as standards have been enforced upon us.

    My expression is best felt in my voice and that is not through singing either. I observe how people react or respond to something that I have said, whether it’s in a word or a sentence, and that is beautiful to observe. In the mean time, I will continue to write and tap into that wisdom till one day I can write my blogs, articles or book. I know it won’t be long before this occurs as I know I have much to share.

    1. I understand where you are coming from Shushila, I am another person who has always felt challenged by writing, in many ways, so my writing has to be simple, ‘For me, I like to keep things simple, so my writing is simple’.

  5. When it comes to writing there is so much to read, when we let ourselves truly feel it we get to feel so much more then just words on a page.

    1. Thank God there are many forms of expression, not always read, heard but also felt. I would love to hear more audio books read out by that right person, who expresses in such a way that everything in you ignites when they speak. Now that is expression…

      1. Shushila I could listen to Serge Benhayon or Simone Benhayon talk all day there is a cadence in their voice that is just so reassuring while at the same time it is possible to feel how our bodies are reconfigured, that is true alchemy. Simone Benhayon is a comedian she has us all in stitches as she highlights the silliness of the things we do, which shows us that it is not us doing these silly things but the energy we have aligned to that we allow through which acts out the silliness. If we were fully present with ourselves in everything we do and say there would be no way that we would for example say silly things or gossip. What’s the point of gossiping anyway? When it is lovingly exposed it doesn’t make sense yet we spend a huge amount of time gossiping or indulging in gossip magazines. Is our life so boring and empty that we need to fill it with mindless gossip about ourselves and other people?

  6. “a comma may not be put in the position that it’s expected BUT the expression leaves us pondering for days and leaves us feeling the depth of truth in the words?” The expression in the purple books by Serge Benhayon offer a way to feel what is being said rather than read with the eyes.

  7. ‘There is this underlying feel that we can often conform to the beliefs of how to write, rather than staying true and confirming what we write’ so often we are encouraged by society to make it look a certain way, irrespective of how we feel. This whittles down our sense of self as we compromise on honouring our feelings. We also learn to live life from the head rather than the body, which further erodes our connection to truth.

  8. What I have learnt from Serge’s books is that his way of writing often stops me in my tracks to re-read something because my mind is so assuming of the accepted writing structures, and this actually keeps me more engaged and open to what’s being shared. To me there is more of an aliveness to Serge’s words both because of the source they come from and how they are written.

    1. Melinda reading Serge’s books is a science in itself as it is possible to read his book and then re read and it will be a totally different experience from the first read or the second read. To me the books are alive and as we realign back to our essence the books seem to open up new layers of realisations. I haven’t read any books that can touch the aliveness of Serge Benhayon books.

  9. After my first session with an esoteric practitioner, I knew I had found somebody who speaks my language – she said something during the session which I hadn’t heard from anybody else before. The perception that people aren’t broken but are simply living in disconnection from who they truly are hit the nail on the head & I knew that this is somebody who I would like to speak with about any of the things which I may be experiencing day to day.

  10. Reblogged this on and commented:
    Truth is our first point of reflection, we feel truth and relate to the world from the truth we have accepted. The question is – are we chained by a norm that doesn’t serve us?

  11. Some of the most melty moments I have enjoyed with my children have been over their spelling inaccuracies. Forget the spelling conventions, the syntax and the grammar. When a child simply expresses from their juicy gorgeousness in the moment on a page, all that sweetness and joy comes with it. The spelling mistakes are simply the cherry on the cake as far as I am concerned and lend an added charm to the whole thing.

  12. As Yoda from Star wars says so wisely: “We must unlearn what we have learned” – very powerful words indeed.

    1. Henrietta I have never watched Star Wars but I totally agree with Yoda. To me our education system is a trap as it takes away our ability to stop and feel what is occurring. Instead it traps us in our minds with regurgitated information rather than accessing the knowledge that comes through our bodies from the universe.

  13. The right and wrong rule book is something we need to bust and not just in writing but in speaking and how we are – it is about letting a person be who they are and express from their inner most.

  14. Their is surtenly an olde skool way of righting wich is like haow Winnie the Pooh rights. I lov this as it brakes the molde and makes you feel more.

  15. To be able to write what we feel instead of worrying about how it reads .. punctuation (is it right or wrong) is very liberating to me.

  16. What I noticed recently when listening to an audio book is that the way something is read left an unsettlement or disturbance in my body. When I stopped to feel my body it felt racy and anxious this was when I realised I had taken on the emotion of the story into my body as I had got caught up in the narration.
    This is very interesting because how many of us read books or listen to audio books or music without discerning the energy?

  17. It is great to expose the ‘right and wrong’ rule book that comes with writing. I have seen over years in teaching how it stifles true expression. It is much more enriching and inspiring to read a true expression than a well polished set of words.

    1. Love what you have said here Matilda – and it is about breaking the conditioning that we have had over the years and allowing freely to express that which naturally lies within.

  18. I had no idea that the way we have been taught to write and read constructs our minds to think in a certain way. And that to have a truly open mind this way of teaching has to be deconstructed. And this does make sense to me as I have often felt that scientists in particular are so rigid in their thinking they cannot think outside the ‘box’ so to say.

  19. ‘Serge’s books offer the choice to be read from the body and to let go of the conditioning of the mind.’ Yes, it’s wonderful to be able to read in this way.

  20. We are often told “shut up” when we speak the truth, when something out of the ordinary is said we can be ridiculed for being silly, not going by what science says and so on. Perhaps that is all because we don’t want to hear, we don’t want to know that life can be different, we can be different and things don’t have to be the way they are.

    1. I like what you’ve shared here Viktoria, I hadn’t quite clocked the way we maintain a certain reality by enforcing the ‘same old same old’ to be expressed and can be unsettled or disturbed when someone breaks out of that prescribed way of expression.

      1. I agree when I was a child I was told I spoke like a brick in the face, or that I would never be a diplomat because I expressed in a way that was straight and to the point. I didn’t know what I was saying it used to just come out. My family would say you can’t say that and would tell me off, which always left me puzzled about what could I have said that was so shocking to them. Now I can look back and see that I was exposing the sham of our family life.

  21. When I edit something I have written or someone else has written I like to connect to the message that is being communicated first and then edit sensitively to hold that message or expression precious, but perhaps tweak things to allow that expression or message to be even more open, obvious and accessible to anyone who reads it.

  22. Whatever gets in the way of true expression is a distraction and I see how sometimes I can allow the need to get something grammatically correct a distraction. I am also aware how this behaviour can play out in other areas of my life too – the need to say or get things right which keeps me held in contraction.

    1. I have really felt recently how I have been gripped in the need to prove myself ‘right’. It’s like I am consumed by an energy. My speech becomes insistent, my body becomes tense and I am focused solely on proving that I am right and that the other person is wrong. The thing is about ‘proving ourselves to be right’, is that the other person never ever ends up saying ‘you know what you are right’. and so that moment of satisfaction that we are gunning for never comes because when one person is caught up in being right, the other person is equally caught up in not admitting that they are wrong.

      1. I have noticed that ‘right’ energy creep in at times, it feels horrible, and best nominated and let go of as soon as possible in my experience.

  23. I have noticed this too when I write Anonymous, how a word that I have used or a comma I have missed out is picked up by the spell checker and a red line is placed under the word. This reminds me of school and how I had to get things right according to the teacher, and in so doing reduced my own way of expressing. Just recently I have taken note of the spell checker, but if the way I have written something feels like it is my expression I now leave it and I am enjoying the freedom of exploring different ways of writing that do not see me correcting things that are not ‘right’

  24. The Purple Books written by Serge Benhayon are truly amazing in that as you say the words hold an energetic expression way beyond all the spelling rules and grammatical workings. And you can read one of the books and then go back some time later and what you read will have changed as we deepen our understanding of ourselves and our place in the universe so we deepen into the energetic meaning of the words in the books. I have not read any other books that can hold the energetic truth in this way.

  25. I’ve found that that which is designed to be read from the body is a lot slower than what is written from and for the mind in isolation. While yes the sentences are long in what Serge Benhayon writes there’s nothing ‘wrong’ with them. It actually gets us to slow down and connect, this can irritate if we are avoiding stillness or connection.

  26. That words hold an energetic expression beyond spelling rules and grammatical workings would explain why, when we may not even know a word, we can find ourselves using one that when looked into, describes the aspect we are conveying very succinctly.

  27. “Serge’s books offer the choice to be read from the body and to let go of the conditioning of the mind” I so love Serge Benhayon’s books. My body just revels in the depth of wisdom offered. And on re-reading there is always more that is revealed to me. Magic.

  28. “Truth in word: This is the first key to true understanding.” There is a saying in the English language that says someone “is as good as their word”. Our word and what we say therefore is important and needs to be appreciated for the power that it is.

  29. “Serge’s books offer the choice to be read from the body and to let go of the conditioning of the mind” I agree the purple books are magnificent for helping to re-configure all of the false programming we have taken on.

  30. Truth in Word goes far beyond rules and regulations that demand we conform to a certain norm and the conventions of the gobbledegook that passes as how we are to speak and write. This gobbledegook also engenders dishonesty and irresponsibility.

  31. When we express from the truth of our bodies we share a lived wisdom that offers a reflection of how the light of Soul, who we all are, can be lived in this plane of life.

  32. The myriad of rules about punctuation, grammar and syntax are an elitist way to separate those in the know from those who don’t know and make no sense, to the point of absurdity, when it comes to truth in word.
