Bringing Self-care to Dentistry: 7 Steps to Returning to Love

by Dr Rachel Mascord BDS, Sydney 

As a student dentist I geared myself up with hope that upon final graduation I would become confident and secure within myself. I believed that success and ease would be the natural outcomes of all the hard work I’d done. I had achieved great success as a student by pushing and driving myself: what I did not grasp was that my developed patterns of self-neglect and anxious drive had become an entrenched and normal way of operating.

The picture of ‘perfection’ I had formulated was so narrow it would hurt me for many years to come. I made life about getting everything ‘right’. Without that, I did not feel like a worthy member of the profession, or indeed a worthy human being.

My picture of a ‘life of success’ did not eventuate, and every day at work was in the dullness of just getting by and coping with the fear that I never felt ‘good enough’. I existed in this state for 17 years… Continue reading “Bringing Self-care to Dentistry: 7 Steps to Returning to Love”

The Glory of Expression

I attended a Universal Medicine event called The Glory Workshop in Lennox Head in December 2012. Serge Benhayon had talked about glory in his presentations before and it had always seemed somewhat out of reach as a state of being that I could aspire to, let alone sustain on a daily basis.

The Moonies, Serge Benhayon & Universal Medicine: My Cult Experience

by Anne Scott, Auckland, New Zealand

My stomach and bowels were heaving: I felt completely devoid of energy. I was feeling pretty desperate. I had what backpackers in 1980 called ‘Montezuma’s revenge’. I arrived thus at what I thought was the youth hostel in Denver, having come straight from the airport and a flight from Mexico.

Except it was no longer a youth hostel. Unbeknownst to me, the building had been purchased by the Denver branch of the Reunification Church, known to many as the “Moonies” because it was founded, and was headed at that time, by a Korean man, Ken Moon (who has only very recently died). I had inadvertently placed myself into the hands of an organisation that I would now, without question, describe as a cult, as a result of the attempt to ‘convert’, ‘control’ and ‘brainwash’ me.

My Life After Serge Benhayon’s Presentation Only Confirmed And Refined What I Had Connected To Before

by Urs Fuchs, Musician, Rösrath, Germany (English 2nd Language)

Winter 2005 I began with important decisions: to change my life and to listen more to my body! I was sitting in front of a cup of cafe latte and a piece of cake and I had heart burn (Sodbrennen).

My stomach was in pain and I tasted the coffee with milk and felt: this is tasting terrible, then I tried the cake… just extremely sweet. The feeling in my body was very dull and heavy! And I asked myself: do you want to feel so bad any longer? From that moment I decided not to have milk and cake anymore. After this decision and a few days later the pain in my stomach was gone and I never had it again.

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. Continue reading “Serge Benhayon Helped Me Get Off The Merry-Go-Round”

David Millikan: Wow!!…What a cracking start to my first ever Universal Medicine presentation!

by Craig Robinson, Director of Ozskills Careers College, Geelong, Victoria, Australia

I want to thank Universal Medicine for the weekend’s adventure that I experienced in Lennox Head (12th October 2012).

After much thought, I decided to attend some Universal Medicine workshops with my girlfriend to gain insight into her world; it is such a unique part of her life that I would like to learn more about it for myself. We went first to the Friday night discussion where I was warmly greeted and asked to fill in the required forms and pay the prescribed fees ($5 only) …No different to any of the other seminars I’ve attended over my life.

Serge Benhayon, the presenter, came on stage and announced that he had been having a discussion over the past month with a prominent Uniting Church Minister (a self-proclaimed cult expert), as it had become apparent that some sources were painting Serge in the light of a cult leader. The banter was easygoing between them, with the Minister being introduced as David Millikan; it was stated that they had had quite detailed discussions relating to Millikan’s belief that Serge’s group was not a cult.
