Serge Benhayon – one man has changed everything

by Julie Snelgrove, Teaching Assistant, Somerset, England, UK

I first met Serge Benhayon 9 years ago, and the impact on myself and family has been profound. As a result we have made great changes, and had we not, I am sure life would be quite a mess by now.

The areas that have most been impacted are:

  • the care and attention I now bring to myself, thus having
  • a positive effect on my health and wellbeing and feeling of self worth,
  • how I relate to my family and
  • my attitude towards conventional medicine.

I attended my first presentation by Serge Benhayon at a time in my life when I was in overwhelm and exhaustion, though to myself or most outsiders this did not seem the case. I was a single mother with two young children, and was driven in fulfilling this role ‘perfectly’. All my time was dedicated to them, 24 hours a day, as they were being homeschooled. This meant I had no job and was reliant on my ex-husband financially. I had just completed training to be an alternative therapist, as I had been against conventional medicine since around the age of 15 – though for no particular reason, other than thinking it had nothing to offer other than making people sicker. Consequently I used many alternative medicines to manage my health. I even refused to go to the doctors for antibiotics or painkillers when I was seriously ill or my children were unwell.

When I first met Serge Benhayon I heard him talk and be very positive about conventional medicine – something I had never come across ever in any complementary therapy presentation.

After I was diagnosed with breast cancer I felt it was necessary to consider conventional medicine, which I did slowly. As I spoke with and had more correspondence via email with Serge Benhayon, it helped me break down the negativity I held towards medical professionals, so it wasn’t long before I could fully accept all that medicine had to offer to support my body to treat the breast cancer. I learnt to work with the doctors and felt empowered in all the relationships I developed with the medics helping me.

In all my correspondence and communication with Serge Benhayon regarding breast cancer, I was always met with absolute understanding of the disease and what was happening, but there was something else I would feel, and that is that I was not the disease but rather me as a woman first. Feeling this meant that I could feel a quality, or something in myself equal to Serge Benhayon, that meant I was worth looking after. I began making changes in how I treated myself and regarded my body. This greatly improved my relationship with myself and with my family.

In using conventional medicine and then feeling supported to look deeper within me, I have had an extremely positive experience with a life threatening disease. This experience came from the way I approached breast cancer, in that it wasn’t something to ‘just get through’ but an opportunity to stop and reflect on how I was living in every area of my life, particularly in regards to how I treated myself and was towards my family.

In time, I also met Serge Benhayon’s wife, Miranda, and his children (all equally as loving and responsible adults). Watching them and how they all related with each other was not how I had seen families and behaviours play out before. There is a love, care and depth of respect that is always felt around them. When my children were introduced to them they felt the same, and they absolutely love spending time with the Benhayons whenever they can, and are always welcomed as part of their family.

From these observations and from questions I had asked Serge Benhayon over the years, I grew to learn that being in a family was not about controlling and imposing on my children, to be and become all that I would like them to be, but rather to show love and care towards myself, then this would happen naturally in the family, as they could accept and be themselves. Being a mother does not mean sacrificing myself as I was previously doing, having no respect for my body in how I treated myself. I had accepted it was normal for me to be living constantly feeling tired and then regularly using alcohol and certain foods to bring comfort and relief to the lousy choices I was making.

Everything – as in time, understanding, commitment, respect and care – Serge Benhayon has offered through email correspondence or in person, has been of the same quality as I see him give to everyone, whether this is his family, a work colleague, my family, friends or a tradesman. My experiences have shown me that Serge Benhayon practises true charity – where he often gives freely of his time and expertise with no personal gain or recognition for himself.

Through knowing Serge Benhayon over the last 9 years, my life has changed hugely, in particular the love, care and sense of worth I now feel towards myself which has brought many changes:

  • I am no longer exhausted
  • I feel vital and healthy
  • I have a relationship with my body and know how to treat it with care
  • I now utilize the skills and services of conventional medicine
  • My relationship with my children has changed and we work on developing care and love within it
  • My children have attended school for the past 7 years and are responsible teenagers who have not been seduced with alcohol, cigarettes and drugs. Though they feel all the same pressures as other teenagers and encounter the same difficulties and upsets, they have support and love around them to talk through any issues.
  • I work full time in a local school, as well as volunteering in a local hospice, a children’s centre and breast cancer support groups.

My life and the responsibility I take in it towards myself, my choices, my family, friends and work is unrecognisable from how life used to be. I have also witnessed this for many, many other people I know. This is down to one man who has simply, openly shared and presented how he lives his life, all of which makes sense, and he has never watered this down in fear of how it might upset another. He has met, accepted and understood me on every level, even at times when I have not been able to do so myself! His way is unimposing and is only ever loving, which means I have chosen to make changes for myself in my own time with no sense of pressure – all of these unique qualities I had not felt previously in anyone else I had met through my life.

For this I will feel eternally thank full and appreciative of all that has been brought to me, to my family and my relationships with many other people, as I constantly feel inspired to learn and develop more.

  1. “My children have attended school for the past 7 years and are responsible teenagers who have not been seduced with alcohol, cigarettes and drugs. Though they feel all the same pressures as other teenagers and encounter the same difficulties and upsets, they have support and love around them to talk through any issues.” This alone in this day and age is a miracle.

  2. It is incredible to observe how one choice based on an ideal or belief can actually be so damaging to us, as like you shared for instance avoiding western medicine, and then imagine having loads of these ideals and beliefs that are not truly true to our bodies and being.

  3. Serge is absolutely a deeply inspiring person, often I’ve heard other people doing presentations and the words might have been inspiring to me but afterwards there were no real changes in my life. To be honest it was more about the presenter and not truly serving the audience. What I’ve found with Serge is what he shares is never imposing, never for him, it’s spoken with love and truth, meaning there are no expectations or needs placed on the audience, and it’s practical, real and relates to and is applicable to every part of life. Serge lives what he shares so I can see the outcomes of what he presents. What Serge offers is also self empowering as it’s our connection to ourselves and our body that prompts the changes, it’s listening to and honouring our own feelings and truth. Serge is truly an amazing fellow.

  4. It is interesting how we can think we are being responsible in how we live but we do so with blinkers on and therefore we are not open to anything else. Serge Benhayon through the way he lives, his incredible and deeply felt wisdom is able to show us how blinkered and set in our ways we all can be.

  5. I have found that through responsibility I can not sit back in the comfort that I once did, I now find myself taking responsibility for my choices because they not only affect me but they affect others too.

  6. This man has changed so much for so many. A weight that has lifted beyond measure and the lengths of deepening and surrender are beyond words.

  7. I too was surprised to hear Serge Benhayon be positive and embracing of western medicine, but as he went on to explain and my understanding of it is that we need to support ourselves on all levels when the body is breaking down, but what he also offers is that we can bring healing, honesty and responsibility to our own health and wellbeing, supporting our bodies to heal deeply of the root cause and not only rely on western medicine to fix us. The Universal Medicine therapies are profoundly supportive in healing the root cause, it is up to us if we are willing to surrender and let go and to choose this healing or not.

  8. Feeling that we’re worth taking care of and appreciating the positive effect this has on everyone around us too can make such a difference to the way we look after our body and being.

    1. “Feeling that we’re worth taking care of” – if day to day this one simple step was brought into all our choices I reckon how we treat ourselves and each other could start changing health statistics.

  9. For me Serge Benhayon truly reflects God’s love; unwavering, consistent, without judgement, always seeing the bigger picture and always holding us as equal.

  10. The ripple effects of this one man, Serge Benhayon, are enormous…my mind boggles at even trying to consider it. Just take you Julie, one student of Universal Medicine and how you have re-engaged in life, and how many people see you, connect with you etc…and how much of an effect you are having on others. Its huge!

    1. I agree, Sarah, the ripple effect is enormous, for every family member or friend bring that level of love to others also, so a real oil stain that is spreading (as we would say in Dutch).

  11. To have so many people feel the incredible differences that one man can make in people’s lives, not through self sacrifice but by transforming and inspiring people to embrace all that they are, is incredible.

    1. Indeed it is David. What Serge Benhayon has offered and inspired in so many is beyond measure, simply by meeting each individual with the love and truth of who he is and who they are.

    2. How amazing is it to actually find someone talking about something that works? Prior to finding the work of Serge Benhayon I spent decades and $1000’s looking for true support, to heal what I had experienced in life, and to feel a sense of purpose in life and a connection to the truth. Until I met Serge nothing changed, now I have much better health and wellbeing thanks to my own self care, my self worth has changed as I’m now self loving, and I feel a connection to the love and truth within me from my soul. Everything Serge offers has worked for me, it’s a very practical and beautiful way of life to live from one’s soul.

  12. “My life and the responsibility I take in it towards myself, my choices, my family, friends and work is unrecognisable from how life used to be. ” Yes and I can say the same Julie, as can many students of Universal Medicine. We are going against the world trend – which sees people getting sicker yet not making lifestyle choices that could support them. When people wake up and realise what they are doing Universal Medicine has the answer.

  13. Our resistance to things that would actually be beneficial to us (in this case western medicine) actually hurts us more than the ill effects we think we are going to receive from them.

    1. So true Liane. And resisting the fact we are multidimensional beings, not purely a physical body, doesn’t support us at all. We are so much grander than we perceive ourselves to be.
