Living Miracles in the 21st Century

By Maree Savins, Australia

In the cynical 21st Century, most of us no longer believe in miracles. Yet every day, miracles occur.

We know Jesus had the ability to help people heal, such that he is known as the “Great Physician”.  These healings were celebrated as miracles.  He was celebrated as having special powers.  Jesus was glorified by many, and yet there was something about him that was grounded, living from an inner stillness, and a simplicity that emanated from his being and in his life.

What the writings about Jesus have failed to explore was that Jesus was a human being just like us, and because we are all born equal, what this means is that we all have the ability to heal ourselves and support others to heal as well.  You can call it super powers if you want – but it’s just part of who we are.  I’m not talking about turning water into wine or walking on water, but everyday miracles about people transforming their lives by embracing and expressing Love.

Wouldn’t it be beautiful if we each lived each day knowing and living this knowing?  How would it change our everyday life?

As I read the articles on this Medicine and Serge Benhayon website, I am witness to many stories about people being healed as a result of the teachings presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.

As I reflect on my own life since coming to Universal Medicine, I can attest that I have had many of my own miracles indeed.  In the last seven years I have experienced and healed:

  • A serious injury to my scapula area, losing strength in my hands
  • A lifetime of asthma
  • Many years of sinus issues
  • Rashes on my skin since birth
  • Lower back injury from a motor vehicle accident

It was the injury to my lower back from a motor vehicle accident which brought the most significant change because it brought me to a halt.  It was difficult in the beginning for me to walk, and I was unable to put one foot forward without being present with each step.  My back ached day and night, reaching an 8 or 9 out of 10 pain threshold for many months.

The prognosis was that I would always have pain and I remember feeling horrified by those words from my doctor.  I was in my late 30s, a single mum – who would provide and do all the things that needed to be done, those things I have always done by myself? I lived thinking I was being responsible for it all, but I wasn’t living in a way that was supportive of myself.

I had learned in life not to rely on other people, not to bother them, not to trust them, not to ask anything of anyone – all so that I didn’t have unwanted payback, as had happened in the past.  I tried to do as much as I could on my own and lived in my own bubble of self-reliance.  It was difficult because at times I did have to ask for help, but if I paid money for it then at least it felt more equal.

Now self-reliance and independence is all well and good, but perhaps not so when you lack appreciation for what can transpire when we work together.  In effect, this level of independence was just something I did to protect myself from having to feel my hurts, by letting people see how vulnerable and sensitive I was, and I kept people out as much as possible.  It’s how I learned to ‘manage life’ so I could get by.

This injury meant that I had to start to care for me more deeply than ever before and I had to ask for and accept help from others.  Something also very different that I learned was to put my own needs first because if I did not (and I learned the hard way) the pain in my back would escalate to a degree that would bring tears to my eyes.

I didn’t necessarily accept the diagnosis that I would live with this pain forever but I didn’t fight it either.  I just let it all play out and I committed to dealing with life.  I was open to what would play out from a physical body perspective but it was never my focus.  I knew without doubt, that this accident happened to bring me to a stop, because it was needed.  So this is what I began to explore.

What did I have to learn or understand?

I had a beautiful team of practitioners – my doctor who provided amazing support (and pain relief!), an Esoteric Massage Therapist and an Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapist and Physiotherapist.  I committed to sessions with these practitioners to deal with whatever issue had risen to the surface to be cleared from my body at that time.  I also committed to daily gentle walks even if it was just to the end of the road, as well as pool rehabilitation three or four days per week, where I simply moved my body in the water in a way that felt supportive.  No counting repetitions, no pushing, no needing to do more than I did last week, just moving gently and using the water as resistance.

It wasn’t just about rehabilitating physically from the injury though – my whole way of life had to change.  I had to rely on people to pick up heavy boxes for me at work, to use trolleys, to limit vacuuming to only one room per day and only if I felt strong enough, to buy the right tools to help in my daily life such as a lightweight vacuum cleaner, to rest when I was tired (a miracle in itself!), to outsource home jobs to trades such as lawn mowing and maintenance, to have fruit and vegetables delivered to my home, to purposely pack shopping bags ever so lightly, to commit to a gentle exercise program and most importantly … to learn to let Love in at a deeper level than ever before.

Eventually the pain dropped to about a 2 or 3 out of 10 and sometimes spiked to an 8.  It was livable and allowed space for me to learn how to be more loving, gentle and honouring of my body each day.

After about two years the pain was minimal and most days now I don’t notice any at all.  There is often an ever so faint feeling in my lower back that reminds me never to push through.  I know I have had a serious injury to my body, and this particular sensation helps me remember not to go back to my old hard and protective ways.

I don’t celebrate that I proved wrong those who said I would never be pain free again. Our practitioners can only work on the bodies that they have been presented with and in most cases, we do not heal to the level that is available because we don’t change the choices or way of living that caused the dis-ease in the first place.  Healing is not just about working on the body in a physical and functional way.  What is required is a ‘whole approach’ and that includes becoming more aware of how we live and how much we are willing to allow Love to change our lives.

We look at miracles only if they are instant healings, whereas the miracle of healing this injury took time and commitment and such deep self-honouring that demanded I must never go back to living the protected and insulated way that I had been living before.

We all have the ability to heal ourselves and to support each other but we don’t embrace that or accept that in this life.  We hope that a tablet will fix us or an operation and we don’t really even appreciate our ability to heal or see it as anything special – for the focus turns to whether we can return to our sport or our old way of life – a life that resulted in the illness, disease or injury in the beginning.

Healing isn’t just for one person with special powers.  Once we learn to connect to ourselves and to bring true Love to our lives, we have the power to heal and it is not just something for a select few.  Miracles happen every day and they may be as small as a teenager letting go of anger for a moment to feel love, or an elderly person being truly seen, or us clocking a lifetime momentum or belief that has kept us small, simply from another’s passing comment that comes from Truth.  These are just some of the miracles I have felt for myself.

Serge Benhayon brings to us something extremely precious – an insight into what is possible for human beings despite education levels, gender, income, occupation, history and ill-choices.  It is the awakenings of Serge Benhayon and his sharing that allows us to be open to possibilities and to break free of the entrapment of repetitive thoughts and beliefs that hold us down and keep us imprisoned in what we have resorted life to be.

And yet … there is so much more.

This more I have seen with my own eyes and felt in my own body.  My appreciation for Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine is far more than allowing me to heal from physical illness so that I can have a better life.  I am one person who is a living miracle for ALL that I have healed so far and for the life that I live that now has meaning and purpose.  Serge brings to the earth something that is worthy for all people to hear and to feel for themselves.  The energetic Truth as presented by Serge Benhayon resonates within to the depths of my Soul.

When we open ourselves to Love, amazing miracles are possible.  We are all healers when we choose Love, and we do not need to be practitioners for this to be so.

  1. True Miracles are about Love and the beauty and joy of living wisely and Lovingly on earth! The true miracle is to live here and now on earth in alignment to our true essence within the inner-most heart.

  2. Perhaps some will resist the word miracle and some will use this word only to name something that shifts dramatically from one moment to the next. Yet, The word miracle also applies to other capital shifts that occur over time that changes conditions that result from very deep seated beliefs, patterns of movements, ways of functioning and understanding life. When we work on the condition with such an understanding in mind miracles certainly occur. The person who comes out from it, is not only condition free, it has free itself from the patterns that led her/him there in the first place.

  3. It is a great thing to appreciate all the miracles we see around us every day, ones that we make happen for ourselves and for others that may not even realise that they are going on. I appreciate almost every day that I met Serge Benhayon and have not touched alcohol for a very long time, which is a miracle in itself for there was a stage in my life I was almost resigned to thinking that I couldn’t stop and it would be the end of me in the end.

  4. “When we open ourselves to Love, amazing miracles are possible” so well said Maree, that’s it. When we are open we allow God’s love in; resisting our own love and the love of God always creates havoc with our bodies.

  5. “…in most cases, we do not heal to the level that is available because we don’t change the choices or way of living that caused the dis-ease in the first place…” Ahhh.. Sounds like Medicine 101… Choices and consequences. Great Blog Maree, thank you

  6. Being given a diagnosis of constant pain for the rest of your life cannot have been easy. but how amazing that you did not accept this and have worked towards healing yourself. A lesson for anyone experiencing any kind of pain.

  7. “It wasn’t just about rehabilitating physically from the injury though – my whole way of life had to change.” – I think this is a key part of the healing process for us – that it’s not just about returning to be able to function in life the way we were before but to re-connect more deeply with ourselves and our true expression and way of being in life.

  8. There are many walking miracles that I have witnessed over the years from those who have been open to the healing modalities offered by the Ancient Wisdom and Universal Medicine. Many years of long term pain and conditions that stem from behaviours that keep the vitality that we know is in the core of us all from being felt and another example of the support provided by Western Medicine.

  9. “When we open ourselves to Love, amazing miracles are possible.” I completely agree, it’s beyond what words we could imagine, it’s beyond our dreams as amazing miracles are happening every single day yet we can choose to walk around blind to what is in front of us.

  10. Maree this was beautiful to read again, and it’s a very empowering article reminding me of the power of love in my life, and that it’s an every moment choice available to me.

  11. I find that whenever I am called to be more loving and I step up to that call finding I have stagnated emotions or ideals and beliefs to clear out, which I then manage to do – the space that is left for more love in my body feels like a miracle – every time!

  12. Thank you for your insightful blog Maree. I am a walking miracle in so many ways. Since being inspired by the teaching of The Ageless Wisdom as presented by Serge Benhayon, my life has changed exponentially. I am 69 years old, I know work full-time (after having worked part time when younger); I am now full of beans and barely get tired (after often feeling exhausted when younger); my gum disease which came about over not going to the dentist for about 40 years, has tuned around and almost completely healed (the periodentist has called this a miracle); only on occasion do I take on some outside energy and then know how to come back (in the past I was drowning in other people’s energy); I now know what I am doing here on earth (before that was a mystery to me); I have made a 360 degree turn in my relationships – observation not reaction (not perfect in this); and am full of JOY! The wonderful thing is that anybody and everyone can choose this.

  13. There seems to be an ingrained habit with us, when things change or heal we focus on the parts that still are not right. What caused us great pain for years upon years is flicked to the rear like it never took place, and today’s issue and difficulty is worshipped in its place. Surely what would make more sense would be to celebrate every shift that we make to the max like it is the greatest thing we have ever seen, and then observe the choices we made to get to that point. For it’s this that can teach us so much and stand us in good stead for the next healing that comes. Thank you Maree for reminding us to celebrate the miracles of Love.

  14. “or an elderly person being truly seen”. Yesterday I was going to the post office and as I was walking up, an elderly woman was coming up as well, I smiled at her, she looked blankly at me back, I smiled again and then a sly gorgeous smile came across her face. I knew that she was wondering if that smile was for her, did someone truly see her, and hold her in love, and yes they did, I saw you and held you in love and smiled. It was a miracle between us that moment.

  15. “Healing is not just about working on the body in a physical and functional way. What is required is a ‘whole approach’ and that includes becoming more aware of how we live and how much we are willing to allow Love to change our lives.” – I agree wholeheartedly Maree, there is much more to us than just our physical body and whilst attending to our physical body is an essential part of healing, there is more for us to discover and unfold in the way we live our life and are in relationship with ourselves and everyone else.

  16. When we live in the flow of life many things change and happen, and it is lovely to truly appreciate these changes and acknowledge that it is through the loving choices we make that our life becomes fuller and more joyful.

  17. “…everyday miracles about people transforming their lives by embracing and expressing Love.” This is so true. If we embrace love and express it our whole life changes, including our health.

  18. It is the modern day miracle when we see the association between self care, self love and doing the work on addressing emotional issues, how this has a positive healthy effect on reducing ailments experienced in the human body.

  19. Are patterns of self reliance and independence something to be touted or merely a protective mechanism we have developed in order to avoid being hurt in our relationships?

  20. The life of Jesus has indeed been glorified so that it no longer represents the life of a person but of someone who is perhaps better than human which actually makes him difficult to relate to and sets up a standard to which we must aspire instead of being inspired to embrace who we are, knowing that inside of every person is the same greatness that he was able to live by because we are all in fact equal – and that is the greatest piece of wisdom missed from all of the teachings about Jesus, that he and we are equal.

  21. Maree thank you for bringing to light the fact that we live everyday with miracles happening all around us, but it is us who chooses not to appreciate and see these. We therefore have a simple choice, embrace the miracles and having been a student of the Livingness for over a decade it is impossible to deny the extent of the miracles.

  22. Understanding what miracle means opens us up to appreciate and see that everything big and small that is truly loving is in fact a miracle. Love is healing and medicine for life, and a miracle is whenever love is being expressed and shared.

  23. I think one of the things with true everyday miracles that you present here is that they aren’t so mysterious as some of the more fabled ones (e.g walking on water!) and with that they show just how much power each of us holds in the way that we live our life – which brings in the consideration of responsibility which may not seem so exciting or sensationalist!

  24. We are very good at glorifying the past but what if we paid attention to the true wonders and miracles we see delivered in the present. We currently value all the wrong things, shown in how we glorify celebrity and the ability to look good yet offer nothing of meaning or value, while at the same time those who serve and care about people are not considered to be of worth.

  25. Thank you Maree for sharing with us your wonderful experience of a living miracle, because you were open to true healing, a combination of conventional medicine- dealing with the physical component and pain and with esoteric healing – healing the energetic cause. With this combination of treatment you were able to understand and treat the cause of underlying your illness, and become more responsible through your loving choices.

  26. A priceless blog Maree, filled with deep insight and understanding from your own healing journey. Bringing a deeper level of awareness and responsibility to our lives is key to a true healing, which does mean making different choices and lifestyle changes.
    “…..we do not heal to the level that is available because we don’t change the choices or way of living that caused the dis-ease in the first place”.

  27. “When we open ourselves to Love, amazing miracles are possible. We are all healers when we choose Love, and we do not need to be practitioners for this to be so.”

    So well said, all we need to do is open up to the Love that is constantly there all around us and say yes to it. We spend most of our lives ignoring this fact and instead will focus on what’s not, why do we so easily want to sabotage ourselves when in truth it is all there right under our noses?

  28. ‘What the writings about Jesus have failed to explore was that Jesus was a human being just like us, and because we are all born equal, what this means is that we all have the ability to heal ourselves and support others to heal as well.’ When I went to church I always got the feeling that I wasn’t equal to God or Jesus. I felt guilty that God’s ‘only son’ was crucified on the cross for us and yet I knew Jesus didn’t suffer any pain. The teachings in no way made me feel great about myself and they did not inspire me at all. A huge failing of the teachings of the Bible is that it does not tell us that we are equal to Jesus because we are all sons of God too and this makes us all equal.

  29. It is so important to confirm and appreciate the miracles that happen in our lives as that – miracles – and the power of living true to oneself and the greater purpose.

  30. I love this Maree, you bring power and truth back to us and break down the illusion that miracles only happen to heroic figures of the past. Our every choice towards awareness and love that ignites movements towards us becoming living miracles.

  31. Even by looking into the eyes of another and holding them in absolute love, it is possible to experience a miracle unfolding literally before our very eyes.

  32. To turn around and reverse behaviour patterns due to lack of self worth, lack of self love, anxiety, or lack of confidence to name a few would have to be our modern day miracle as these issues, if given the time to trace back to the causes of unhealthy behavioural choices, tend to be the root of many modern day illnesses. Perhaps medicine in the future will accompany pharmaceutical and conventional treatment with counselling?

  33. I look around the Universal Medicine Students and see living walking talking miracles everyday. Those who were once lost sons of God now returned and shining bright!

  34. Love to hear about the miracles that abound in every life, every day. Big or small we should take note that there is more going on below the surface, that there is an energetic rationale first and foremost… and then the physical outplay.

  35. Too often we assume a fatalistic approach to accidents and injuries and in doing so, completely wipe out our responsibility and power in the situation. When we stop to consider our lifestyle choices and address the quality of how we live each day, miracles can happen as you have demonstrated Maree, and are becoming more commonplace for those who choose to take great care of their bodies.

  36. Awesome blog and amazing to hear about your story and healing. I have to agree and share the fact that I am a modern living miracle too! From age 13 to 22 was a binge drinker, drug user and chain smoker. I suffered from extreme headaches that went all the way from my neck around my head, under my eyes and all over my face. Every day I had this pain, it was so strong I had to take pain killer every few hours to find any relief. This went on for years but through the support of Universal Medicine and the changes I made within myself I am happy to say I now live a pain free life! This is but one of the many things that I have healed, very great to take the time to appreciate this.

  37. Awesome blog – casting us back to what actual Healing is… And what this is in wholeness and what it requires. There is no such thing as reluctance when someone is choosing love to live by..

  38. ‘We are all healers when we choose love’ – a superb bumper sticker… and a profoundly gorgeous lesson to embrace.

  39. ‘In the cynical 21st Century, most of us no longer believe in miracles. Yet every day, miracles occur.’ The main thinking is that miracles are something that only God can do and it is something out of our own reach, so with this mindset we miss all of the small miracles that happen every day…

  40. It’s true that we as a society don’t recognise miracles when they occur, and are much more focussed on distractions, entertainment and politics which is what we ask to see in the media constantly. That said, what’s beautiful about your article is that YOU appreciate the miracle that’s occurred in your life, and to see someone express this joy and acknowledgment is super inspiring!

  41. Many conditions, thought patterns and repetitive behaviours I used to believe were solid and static have been proven to melt and fade over time the more I connect to the love within me. Consistently showing me that everything shifts and moves as ‘everything is energy.’

  42. In this age where so much is instant we expect everything to happen very quickly and if it doesn’t we can easily get frustrated, angry or anxious. Staying committed as you have done with your own healing process is inspiring and the fact that although we may not always see the changes straight away when we responsibly bold ourselves in love they are there, the miracles are occurring.

  43. When someone breaks out of a long held pattern and truly heals it, that is a miracle. Amazing sharing about what is possible when healing is sought.

  44. It’s not the spectacularity of the miracle what defines it, but its presence in our life when we allow and appreciate it. In that moment we are healing ourselves.
