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!

I can so relate to what you have shared Mike, your experience of an inner foundation and joy to life. The feeling of being steadier and less influenced by outside happenings that try to come into my mind and overwhelm me back into nervous tension. I can see/feel when this is happening and not let the overwhelm take hold, but lovingly hold myself and let the thoughts wash through me and out of my body with no attachment.
Since being involved with Universal Medicine I’ve become a lot more cooperative with any illness or condition that occurs. Rather than just ignoring it and pushing through, or wishing it’d go away so I can go back to living normal life, or playing the victim, I am much more inquisitive about why it’s occurred on an energetic level and so much has changed as a result.
Mike, to experience such a huge thing onto our bodies, once upon a time, I would assume, fear and anxiety would have set in. And yet in your sharing, you felt none of these and not only during the emergency but throughout the time you went through investigations, surgeries etc. You were taken care of and reading this made me realise that if we truly surrender into our bodies, we are taken care of, by placing trust in yourself and others too.
Modern medicine is so remarkable nowadays and I love the combination. Universal Medicine presents that we can combine healing, it brings to our awareness that the wisdom resides in our bodies and there is always an energetic component to our illnesses, if we are open to this.
It is amazing when we allow ourselves to be so open and surrendered and all that has always been there finally becomes a part of our make-up, and our sense of self expands and becomes so inclusive.
A beautiful reminder to keep on deepening the love we have for ourselves and others. Thank you Mike
Sometimes it takes a dramatic incident with our health to wake us up to the preciousness of life and the love on offer.
I can appreciate that moment when you returned to the ward and realised that it was time to change. But what is really beautiful is reading how you have embraced that moment of clarity.
What a wake-up call. Being at the retreat that year and being in the right place at the right time. After all, there are no accidents. So, well done for heeding the warning.
Julie, I call these the ‘stop’ moments. If we put it into perspective, it is a moment where nothing around us matters, and when the microscope is upon us only and everything around us is just matter, then nothing matters and it is only about you and your body.
Mike Stevenson, you were in the right place at the right time. Through so many lifetimes has your path, constellated to come to the point where you were able to experience what you experienced… Amazing.
We have much to appreciate from the unseen support from being held in the body of God. The Hierarchy are always there – we simply have to request their support to walk with us without us holding any expectations or dictates of outcomes.
Mike, your story reminds us all that when we choose to bring more love into our lives (as you did with your attendance at the UniMed Retreat) our bodies may respond with a readjustment (even if this involves something like heart disease) to clear the emotional energy stored in our body which blocked the higher vibration of our soul to enter more fully and thus allow more love in to express from there.
Michael what you are touching on here is that sometimes our bodies do need a readjustment as we have probably not been living in a loving way with ourselves and others. As a society is it possible we have placed too much emphasis on the need for financial security and making money than we have on looking after ourselves? We live such stressful lives that we block out any attempt to reconnect back to our soul as we do not live in a way that our soul can access our bodies as they are too stressed.
