Healing cardiovascular disease with medicine and love

By Mike Stevenson, Retired, Sandhurst UK,

In March 2015 I enjoyed attending the Universal Medicine Retreat in Vietnam, during which we were introduced to the concept of constellations with people and events in and throughout our lives. Little did I realise at the time how I would benefit from an important constellation that occurred towards the end of the event.

Midway through the celebration dinner I started to feel very ill, experienced severe vision problems and subsequently went into a state of collapse.

Attending the dinner were several students of Universal Medicine who were also Medical Doctors and they immediately came to my aid and sent for an ambulance.

In spite of my body going into shock, I felt no fear or anxiety, even though I heard them saying that my pulse was weak and my heart rate had dropped very low.

As I lay on the ground with my legs elevated, Serge Benhayon came and placed his fingertips on my head and shoulder and I felt a great sense of warmth permeating throughout my body and I was very much at ease with what was happening and felt no sense of panic or fear at all. I knew I was in safe hands. After a few moments, my pulse and heart rate picked up and apparently returned to normal.

I was taken to the hospital, where the local doctors could find no reason for my problem, and I was discharged the following morning feeling very well.

On returning home I underwent various medical tests, which were initially reported as normal, but a short time later, further investigation would show this was not exactly true!

A couple of weeks after returning home there were signs of another similar impending collapse and I found myself loaded into an ambulance once again. I was extensively examined by several doctors: after an ultrasound check, a large AAA (Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm) was discovered, which could have proved fatal at any time, without warning.

With no sign of any heart or brain damage found, surgery to repair the aneurysm took place a couple of days later.

My operation was performed after an epidural injection in my back to numb the lower part of my body. For five hours I watched the whole procedure on a screen . . .. the best TV show ever and totally fascinating to watch from start to finish!

Returning to the ward, it hit me that I needed to change my life around; that the onset of my illness was a kick in the backside, unmistakably letting me know that the time to change was now.  Aha! A realization came that this was the ‘love adjustment’ Serge had referred to as I was first taken off to hospital in Vietnam.

Over the next ten months I was in and out of the hospital for tests, scans, X-rays, seeing numerous consultants and having various procedures done that the surgeons had found necessary on reviewing my tests.   It was discovered there were problems with the electrical circuitry and blood supply to my heart and over the next year, several stents were inserted into various coronary arteries.

Throughout all this I felt supported and looked after by God, the Hierarchy and my wife!

Every day I could feel their presence when asking for them to be with me, especially during all operations and procedures, but I definitely ‘got the word’ that the time had come to return to being more loving and appreciative of myself and others.

By choice, I stopped drinking alcohol and eating high sugar products, and by doing so, my body began to re-adjust and shed excess weight. I feel so much calmer in my self with these changes – I have more energy, am no longer breathless, my sleep quality has improved and there is a feeling of a stronger inner foundation and joy in my life.

Being able to tune in with God and the Hierarchy was absolutely magical, as was the assistance of Serge’s books, affectionately known in our house as the Purple Books, or ‘Purple Paddington Bear’. These books are filled with love and feel so lovely that just holding one of these books helped me in my recovery to where I am today – feeling well and cleared for air travel again.

This has been a great opportunity to make more self-loving choices in my life and it has also deepened my relationships with others.

I have since returned to Vietnam in March 2017 and on this occasion I was able to enjoy both the Retreat and the amazing celebration dinner that I was unable to fully enjoy last time!

  1. ‘This has been a great opportunity to make more self-loving choices in my life and it has also deepened my relationships with others.’ – It is a great bonus that when we start to build a loving relationship with ourselves and by that, re-connect to the love that we innately are, this will naturally affect every other relationship we have.

  2. When we are willing to look at our lifestyle choices and initiate true change we are able to accept the ‘love adjustments’ that are needed along the way to truly support us to deepen our relationship with ourselves, accept who we truly are and in letting go of what is not true to surrender to the healing process.

  3. Beautiful story Mike. A wonderful living example of choosing love and choosing to listen to the awesome communication our body offers us.

  4. It is amazing how we can caught up in the cycle of taking sugar to give us energy only to find our body yo-yo ing between the sugar highs and lows and piling on weight yet feeling more and more depleted. Great to read how dropping the high sugar foods including alcohol supported you with weight loss and more energy Mike.

  5. A beautiful story to read Mike, with a very simple yet powerful message. A wonderful example of taking responsibility and choosing truth and love.

  6. It’s beautiful to read about this different approach to illness and disease. The marriage of Western Medicine coupled with self reflection is a heartwarming way to deal with a difficult situation. The most common approach I have seen to illness in the past has been shock or why me, or denial. I have also seen people rush to outside fixes, raw food, organic food, juices. Your calm and responsible attitude finds me feeling a sense that illness is a chance to heal and evolve, a chance to let go.

  7. Scrolling through this category section on ‘Client’s Perspectives’ is like scrolling through a list of miracles. Each story in itself, like yours Mike, is amazing, but reading down the list of now 76 blogs is hugely powerful and absolute testament to the wisdom, awareness and love that Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine have brought to humanity since 1999.

  8. What a recipe to bring to every ill, a combination in equal parts you might say, of medicine and pure love – and with the honesty and truth that love brings all sorts can heal.

  9. I love the relationship I am rekindling with God and the Hierarchy, it is so beholding of me and everyone else, warm, deep, innately loving…what is there not to enjoy and it is so humble and still and it is there always.

  10. Mike, it is a joy reading your blog. This was the retreat that I first met you and got to enjoy your laughter and genuine nature. It’s incredible reading about your experience and hearing all that has unfolded ever since. Thank you for sharing Mike, there is much in this, especially for ‘young ones’ like me.

  11. “For five hours I watched the whole procedure on a screen . . .. the best TV show ever and totally fascinating to watch from start to finish!”
    I love your appreciation here Mike, this is a loud invitation for you to be involved in your recovery; to appreciate not only the intricacies of your own physiology but equally the skill & care of those treating you – appreciation is medicine!

  12. Great sharing here Mike that reveals how important it is to surrender all the struggle and fight and ill momentums that were all part of the illness, whatever it may be, in the first place.

    1. What you share here is important Shirley-Ann. Whatever the illness that presents itself to be healed, be it seemingly small or a surgery like Mike has been through, offers us all an incredible opportunity to heal lifetimes of momentums. Who are we to expect or demand how long this should take, and instead welcome with open arms the surrender that is being offered.

  13. We so need to embrace all that medicine has to offer and yet we are always faced with the opportunity to review what may have contributed to our ill health or repeat the same ill choices again. It sounds like you Mike fully embraced the first option with wonderful outcomes, not only in terms of improved quality of life, but relationships as well.

  14. What an extraordinary story yours is Mike, but at the same time there are more and more stories of people recovering from illness and disease thanks to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine and all that it has to offer, that would previously have been unheard of. You sum it up beautifully with how you felt so supported by God and the Hierarchy (and not forgetting your gorgeous wife!)
    “Every day I could feel their presence when asking for them to be with me, especially during all operations and procedures, but I definitely ‘got the word’ that the time had come to return to being more loving and appreciative of myself and others.”

  15. My father suffered from heart problems and eventually died of a heart attack. Throughout his life he had such difficulty opening to people or expressing love. He used to sing out his emotions, but this was from a place of pain and emptiness rather than love. It feels so sad that he was unable to open up and share himself or let others in. This was so evident in his body in the form of heart disease.

  16. We’re all getting ‘love adjustments’, all the time. We just think they’re illnesses and diseases. Well obviously they are that too, but first and foremost they’re a measure of how much love we’re living – or not.

  17. Recognising that the life choices being made are not supportive and then changing them – this is true medicine. Seeking treatment from conventional and Esoteric medicine then supports our healing but isn’t the thing we are relying on to fix us without us taking any responsibility for our choices.

  18. Choosing truth and love and opening ourselves up to healing is an amazing place to come to and the start of another way of being and living and I love your sharing “Throughout all this I felt supported and looked after by God, the Hierarchy and my wife!” Simply beautiful.

  19. After receiving that “love adjustment” from Serge Benhayon I can feel that it would have been impossible for you to have returned to your old way of being once the medical part of your healing was complete; in fact making the choice to change the way you were living was such an important part of the healing process, which would have been incomplete without it.

  20. “…Returning to the ward, it hit me that I needed to change my life around; that the onset of my illness was a kick in the backside, unmistakably letting me know that the time to change was now….” This awareness brings a deeper, and perhaps a more complete healing aspect to a physical ailment / illness on the body.

  21. I love your term ‘love adjustment’. And I love that you are willing to make love adjustments. It speaks of the awareness you have come to, and how you are willing to act from this awareness.

  22. ‘Healing cardiovascular disease with medicine and love’ I love the title of your blog Mike and smiled as I imagined GPs around the world handing out prescriptions to their patients with the words ‘be love’ written on them.

  23. That feels like a life changing experience. Great how you went with all the medical treatments. Probably all went well as you were so open and aware of why this all had to happen. Congratulations.

  24. From reading your blog you can see how significant a healing that has taken place because of identifying how past lifestyle and behaviour patterns have had an impact on the body and having medical intervention. Both approaches to the body – medical and patterns – offer a deeper and more complete healing.

  25. Holding back love either from not expressing it, or not letting it in, is a serious health hazard… It’s quite surprising, we haven’t made this link to heart problems world wide. Yet, until it was spelled out to me I hadn’t made the link either and it makes complete common sense!

  26. We can so easily see our body as dysfunctional and disappointing somehow, for having any kind of illness. It’s not performing the way we think it should – not delivering an easy optimum. But this is a great misunderstanding of its science, as you show us Mike it is actually perfectly set up to indicate to us the smallest step away from Love. Rather than getting frustrated with this, imagine a world where we embraced this amazing grace to heal and change we have in every cell?
