The Science of Movement

One of the most powerful and profound teachings to come through Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine is that we don’t think. We think we think, but our thoughts are fed to us by the quality of energy we align to through the quality of how we are moving. Therefore, our thoughts are informed by our movements. Change our movements and we change our thoughts. Change our thoughts and we change our experience and perception of life.

Years ago, when I first experimented with this teaching if I couldn’t sleep because my thoughts were too racy, I’d get up out of bed and just walk gently around my bedroom or living room focusing on my breath and feeling and connecting more deeply to my body and how my bare feet felt on the carpet. This would always support, but the degree to which would depend on how deeply I’d allow myself to connect and let go. However, over time and with more practice at surrendering more deeply into my body I’d find that I wouldn’t need to get up at night to settle myself. I learned that if I sustained gentle movements during the day then my head would not be so racy at night-time.

One particular night stands out for me because of what happened when I changed my movements. On this night I don’t remember if my brain was going nineteen to the dozen or if I was feeling an intense imposing energy, but either way I do recall not really wanting to get out of bed. I remember an extreme tension in the raciness I was experiencing and felt like my body was too heavy to move to try and get up. I remember trying to breathe deeply through it, but it didn’t work. Instead, remembering the teaching, I simply experimented by moving a little finger up slightly and across my mattress. That’s all I did.

One. Very, simple, movement.

That one tiny movement was profound. That one tiny movement was so profound it completely stopped my racy head and thoughts. The difference of energetic quality in my body was so extremely altered that it was remarkable – to me like a miracle that could only be wondered at. The racy energy had been completely arrested and, in its place, I had given permission for a more settled energy to be there. Not long after this I was able to drop soundly to sleep.

This one experience confirmed with utter clarity the truth of the teaching that if we wish to change our thoughts, we only have to change our movements.

But what does ‘change our movements’ actually mean? Through re-connecting to my body, I have been able to rebuild my foundation with life through re-developing an ever-deepening presence.

When I consciously connect to my breath, I feel my lungs as I breathe gently in and out through the tip of my nose. When I do this, I can then observe how delicate I am and this allows a gorgeous physical and inner surrender all the way down to feeling the gentleness in my feet when I walk. When I move in this way, I am able to pay more attention to what foods truly support my body.

Movement also incorporates how I honour the being within my body and therefore the being in everyone. This is allowing me to let go of the many conditions I’ve placed on myself, others, or on life to be a certain way.

I am also learning that movement includes acting with immediacy on things that are being called for, offering a profound deepening. Being in the moment in full is one of the most gorgeous ways we maintain our connection to our essence and to the bigger picture. Long gone is the overriding impulse to justify and prove my worth or to receive recognition for what I am achieving. Instead, and in their place, I have developed a deepening inner settlement that needs little confirmation and a consistency with equanimity that is now my lived norm.

By changing my movements over time and by deepening in my relationship with myself and my body, I have begun to rebuild a way of life that makes it less about self and more about all of us. There is a joy to be had in the daily living of my innate essence at the fore. That innate essence knows where it is from and the purpose from which it springs and needs to move. It moves and expresses so that we may all ultimately realise the truth of the essence that is all of us, one and the same.

  1. Considering how much of the world is in continual movement and stress it is great to understand that their is a different approach as you have so lovingly shared Michelle.

  2. The teachings that you speak of Michelle ‘that have come through Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine is that we don’t think. We think we think, but our thoughts are fed to us by the quality of energy we align to through the quality of how we are moving. Therefore, our thoughts are informed by our movements. Change our movements and we change our thoughts. Change our thoughts and we change our experience and perception of life.’
    Is a science that humanity has forgotten to take heed of, so we think our thoughts belong to us because we thought them. This is a deliberate evil in my opinion because it keeps us all in separation from each other. We take ownership of our thoughts. We have built an education system based on our thoughts, which is regurgitated information from a consciousness that seeks to control our every movement. Even Serge Benhayon does not own his thoughts; they are given to him by a different source of consciousness because he moves in a way that gives him a deep connection to his soul. Now humanity can feel the difference and therefore has the free will to make those moves back to their soul. The other aspect to this science is that we will all return to our soul, some quicker than others because that is the unbreakable law of the universe. Those that reconnect to their soul then reflect that way of being to the rest of the world so that we all get to experience the magnificence of what already is and will be.

  3. ‘I simply experimented by moving a little finger up slightly and across my mattress’… I love this and get it. The profound simplicity of the smallest movement and how it can change everything. Connecting to the experience of what it feels like to move one finger can send a wave through the body and beyond. Love it.

  4. Thanks Michelle it is great what you have shared as we can all relate to moving and forgetting what we were doing and having to stop and recollect the energy we were in and thus reconfigure our movement to be in what we were doing but when we are in purpose and set our movement toward deepening our connection to our Soul we instantly understand what is required when we reach our destination because of the true movement we were in.

  5. There is movement occurring all the time in life whether we are physically stepping out or sitting still. A connection to a quality of grandness that is there is the specific choice we are called to make.

    1. Joseph it makes sense that there is constant movement even when we think we are sitting still, as the Earth is rotating at a phenomenal speed as it travels around the sun. But we do not take any notice of this fact any more. As we do not take any notice of the Universe we come from, we have left the universe and space to the ‘scientists’ to our detriment because they don’t know about space and the universe if they did they would hold the universe in reverence of the depth and quality it holds.There are no man made words to describe the universe and its intricate, delicateness and beauty. That’s the connection to the quality of Grandness you are referring to.

  6. Often when we have racy thoughts the first thing that happens is they grow and we get sucked into a vortex that is hard to resurrect oneself out of, Your simple example where the choice was made to physically move was fantastic. I have also found that the more I focus on the tiniest of physical movements the more settled I become in the body. Such an easy stress release and costs nothing but some time.

  7. Astounding that one simple movement of the little finger changed everything; it made me realise how familiar it is to expect something big, grandiose even; some monumental effort, hardship if possible; something to identify with and be identified by. I will definitely experiment and have fun with this science of small movement = big change.

  8. Gorgeous Michelle, I really enjoyed that, playing very delicately with my finger placing on my desk as I read and felt my settlement increase as I did so. I shall take that into my day, thank you. So simple too, yet so powerful.

  9. Michelle I agree with you when you say
    “One of the most powerful and profound teachings to come through Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine is that we don’t think. We think we think, but our thoughts are fed to us by the quality of energy we align to through the quality of how we are moving. ”
    What I have found to be very supportive in changing my movements from negativity which allows negative thoughts to flow through my body is ‘Movefit’ an online exercise program for all ages. Over a period of time by committing to an exercise program now everyday, my whole body has changed shape. I feel much more upright in my posture and I feel very positive and my body feels at ease with itself. I have never been someone who enjoyed exercise, it wasn’t something I liked doing, but actually ‘Movefit’ is very enjoyable, so much so I don’t like to miss a day as by changing how I move I’m supported to sustain my positive thoughts.

  10. Thank you Michelle for sharing the science of movement in such a real and practical way. I feel more inspired to move with the flow of my body today. What I’m noticing is the deliciousness that lays in every single breath, in the simplicity of our being. Clocking this beauty and bring it to the world is a very needed reflection for all.

  11. Hi Michelle, thank you for the profound sharing. I was recently in the kitchen and had been quite stirred up inside, very out of sorts. I reconnected to a quality I know is truly me, which is my delicateness, and moved it in one arm, and it completely changed my whole state of being. It all happened quite quickly and without any effort. We are so used to moving stress, raciness, protection, hardness, anticipation, being shut down, etc, in our bodies, which we don’t question and call normal, we don’t realise that we could be moving something else – the beautiful energy of our true essence from our Soul. A really inspiring sharing, thank you.

    1. Melinda Knighs I agree with your comment
      “We are so used to moving stress, raciness, protection, hardness, anticipation, being shut down, etc, in our bodies, which we don’t question and call normal, we don’t realise that we could be moving something else – the beautiful energy of our true essence from our Soul.”
      Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine has been teaching for the last 20 plus years that humanity does not have to move with stress, raciness etc., but can move with delicateness and grace which are the movements of our soul. It is just a case of re educating ourselves to move with our soul and not against it as we have seemingly be programmed to do.
