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. Truly awesome to read what can happen when we commit to life 100%, and just allow it all to play out without fighting it or giving up. We are literally given countless opportunities to learn and grow from the choices we make, and the reflections we are offered back.

  2. Self-reliance is something a lot of single mums seem to be good at. But it creates a life of unnecessary struggle and is as the authors says, protection from payback or interactions with people we would rather avoid. But the way we work and relate together is never going to improve if we all go off into self-reliance. I am finding collaboration is lovely and asking for support allows others to offer it. This is part of how community grows.

  3. I know what you mean about self-reliance and independence here Maree as I have prided myself on these things also but really I have come to understand that if they are at the expense of relationships with others they are forms of protection that look good but can be ways of keeping other people away.

  4. Unless we get a quick fix to return back to the way we were living before the onset of pain or illness we don’t want to know. To truly heal the body sometimes takes time but with patience, embracing and appreciating every moment that comes our way we find it is possible to heal. If we place our body and wellbeing first with no expectation of an outcome miracles indeed occur; it is a question as to how much we are prepared and willing to love and listen to the body.

  5. We equate ‘good times’ and easy days with a ‘good life’, yet in my experience almost all of the times I have seeen people evolve and grow is through being taken to a point of deep pain. Not that it has to be this way, but for sure our spirit is a stubborn thing. So let’s be careful when we see people struggling or feeling things are bad – they may just be on the precipice of something grand.

  6. I look around this relatively small community of those who are committed to living their life in the most rich and full way that is possible, and really see miracle after miracle.

  7. What I can feel in limiting the word ‘miracle’ to an instant healing is how much we loathe consistency and responsibility. By not appreciating our power/responsibility, we diminish ourselves to victims of circumstances, and it often looks like we are even prepared to eat sands so long as we can avoid responsibility.

  8. I have, with the support of a team of Universal Medicine practitioners from around the world, healed my self of a given-upness on life and the misery that goes with: what’s the point of all this?
    And I agree with you Maree, it is part of who we are but for many of us, we are not consciously aware of our own abilities until we are reminded of them. And this is what the Universal Medicine practitioners do so well in such a way that we take back responsibility for ourselves.

  9. It really is a miracle, that in the sordid dysfunctional world that we live in that lies just a thin veneer beneath the glamour and the advertising, that somebody walks the earth with such love, such a beholding love, that can support each and every one of us to return to who they truly are.

  10. ‘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.’ Beautiful Maree, some miracles take time, and are not instant when we start to make changes to our life it is the consistency that helps to heal the body, and the more consistent we are the more we realise that there can be no going back.

  11. So beautiful to read this again Maree, your writing is very loving in that you share intimately and with an all encompassing approach.,

  12. The changes to your own health Maree are miraculous in themselves. And there are countless stories such as yours that have come about thanks to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, whereby people are choosing to live in ways where they are taking great care of their bodies, supported by practitioners of the Universal Medicine modalities. It is remarkable and incredibly inspiring to read about these true and lasting changes.

  13. What we term a miracle is actually simply universal law in operation! Once we align to our bodies and the universe, ‘miracles’ that we have never even dreamt of occur spontaneously, naturally, and with such joy.

  14. Thank you for sharing the beautiful way you worked with and listened to your body as it communicated to you what was needed to heal and reflect the miracle that was slowly taking place over time, Maree. The precious way you supported yourself and allowed others to do the same feels loving and oh so tender.

  15. “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.” This is one of the key things, is it not Maree, that in order to make true changes to our lives and to truly heal, we have to be willing to look at how we have been living, and consequently be prepared to make changes that will support us in the future to prevent a recurrence of what has been before.

  16. ” Something also very different that I learned was to put my own needs first ” is it not funny , that this is something we need to learn, when one would expect it to be in built . For as the saying goes,
    ” you cannot do for another what you do not do for yourself “

  17. We are all healers when we choose love, absolutely true Maree. Your story and many others is living proof of this and I Iove the depth of what you share here how healing is so much more than we often allow and takes dedication, time and is ever evolving as we refine our living based on what we are presented with. You remind me and all of us that there are miracles all around and ones we are not often aware of, you remind me to look and appreciate. Thank you.

  18. wow what an awesome blog…. There were so many parcels of gold threaded throughout. I found your words “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”…. very powerful….

  19. “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.” such a true and wise statement. Life is not about beating the system as in ‘I healed against all expectations, you are all wrong’ kind of thing but about understanding everything, why things happen or not.

  20. Perhaps you think it’s too good to be true? We hear so much about what’s so wrong with the world and people who claim to have changed but just fudge the truth, but what if there are people out there who are loving, kind and know who they truly are? What if it’s possible for you to let go of all the junk you have accumulated just as they did? Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine show you it totally is. If you can’t comprehend it – that’s too bad but if you can embrace it then the universe is yours. Thank you Maree for championing the changes people have been inspired to make to their lives, from the integrity and quality Serge brings to his.

  21. Just a simple joy to read this Maree, the level of integrity that you share with is tangible, it is indeed precious.

  22. We could say that miracles happen every single second, for example every time I breathe in a breath a miracle is taking place. It is so mundane we all take this miracle for granted, but what if we started to appreciate the many many miracles of the human body that occur every moment.

  23. “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.” Allowing people to see our vulnerability is in fact a strength, whereas for many years I saw it as a weakness. As John Donne put it in his poem ‘no man is an island’.

  24. It is truly amazing what our Soul has in store for us to break away from patterns that do not truly help us and which keep us in constant movement confirming the place where we have chosen to be in.

  25. ‘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’. When we hand over the responsibility to a practitioner or the health care system itself to heal us it completely dis-empowers us and disregards our own responsibility to contribute to our own healing process.

  26. It seems that the word ‘miracles’ was used in the Bible to set Jesus aside from the common man and to prove the claim that he was God’s only son. We are all divinely created and part of a universe that is full of magical moments and miracles. If we think they are just for Jesus then we stop looking for them and life becomes the bland existence it is for many.

    1. Totally agree Doug, and they happen very often. From returning to full health from many illnesses to how I I had changed in daily life, many miracles.

  27. Beautiful Maree, an accident or an injury can be such a great learning and way for us to come back to a truer way of living for us.

  28. What an extraordinary story of healing. Well, amongst the Universal Medicine community it’s actually more ordinary than not, and available to all. There’s no need to be Jesus to take up what the union of esoteric and western medicine has to offer!

  29. I used to think that miracles were something that Jesus could do but no one else. How wrong. We all can do what Jesus did, he was just like us only he knew what energy to align to in order to heal and not harm.
