Discovering what it means to truly heal: Meeting Serge Benhayon and experiencing Universal Medicine Therapies 

By Jennifer Ellis, ND, Adv Dip Ac, Practitioner Universal Medicine Therapies, EPA & ANTA member, Brisbane Australia 

I first came across Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine Therapies through my own illness – a case of recurring pneumonia nearly 17 years ago and only 2 years after the birth of my son. I was a well known and successful Naturopath and Acupuncturist who walked my talk, but nothing would budge the condition for longer than a couple of weeks.

Despite doing everything the medical profession offered and applying the best available of alternative medicine, my weight had dropped from 54 to 47kgs. I was at my wits end, feeling desperate and at a loss to know where to turn.

Through a timely meeting with a friend who shared with me her cousin’s recent visit to Serge Benhayon, I found myself instantly drawn to seek an appointment. That day, December 16th 2001, marked a change in my life I could never have predicted.

What struck me immediately was Serge’s unassuming professionalism. In a tiny and simply furnished room in Altsonville, northern New South Wales, I felt instantly met, seen in a way l’d not been seen before and before long I felt profoundly understood.

The simplicity of his ‘tools of the trade’ you might say were remarkable to me as a practitioner of some 15 years myself. We simply talked, for no more than 30 minutes initially but in that time we seemed to have encompassed my life in such a way that my situation made complete sense.

He helped me see the nature of deeper unresolved feelings I was often aware of but had never quite been able to understand their origins, deep feelings of sadness seemingly unrelated to my situation and circumstance.

As I listened to what was being said about the origins and nature of my condition, I registered that while my mind could say ‘yes that makes sense’, it was within my body that I was registering the truth of what I’d heard. This was a new and subtle experience but distinct enough to recall 17 years on.

For the first time I knew I understood the relationship of these feelings to the condition I was suffering.

The discussion was followed by hands-on-healing (Sacred Esoteric Healing) where I felt (energetic) shifts occurring within my lungs and body that I still remember as if it were yesterday.

It was unlike anything I had experienced before: deeply stilling and somehow reassuring – I felt connected to myself in a way that was on the one hand so familiar, I felt ‘home’ and yet I didn’t ever recall feeling that way before.

At one point I found myself sobbing uncontrollably but following it came a sense of release l’d sought for years, in fact every time I’d touched in on feelings of deep sadness that arose intermittently. The sense of release was quite distinct from the relief l was more familiar with, as on previous occasions I’d find myself crying from a depth that I knew was out of proportion to the situation at hand. The crying then never released the feelings, only relieved them… until the next time.

What followed the release was even more remarkable however, I was left with a profound sense of warmth radiating from my lungs and heart, a feeling of love that imbued my whole body and a sense that I was distinctly at home. A tension I realised I had lived with as long as I could remember was relieved in a way I can only liken to having the deepest itch scratched for the first time. And yet it was distinctly familiar too, I felt completely and utterly myself.

Unsurprisingly to me, the experience delivered an immediate and obvious flow-on effect with regards my health: the pneumonia resolved within days and my weight restored within a few weeks of that. But more than this, it began a period of healing that was all encompassing and transformative involving every aspect of my life.

It is easy to throw the word healing around but my experience on that day was nothing short of miraculous and changed not only the trajectory of my life in every way, but forever changed my understanding of what healing actually entails.

The change was not only personal but in a short time flowed very obviously into my professional life too.

I had come to understand that healing was something that goes much deeper than l had ever learnt through my own study and that my own healing was pivotal to what I was able to offer clients in their respective healing.

Healing was no longer about being clever enough to know the right remedy or modality. It was an exchange of sorts, whereby the depth of healing a client could choose through seeing me was entirely dependent on the depth that I had chosen to go to in my own healing.

l’d never put these things together, understanding ‘walk your talk’ as meaning simply that I ate well, took vitamins, exercised and went to bed at a decent time.

To understand and see the correlation between healing at this level and the flow on affect to the potential for clients to initiate healing for themselves, was both profound, fascinating and asked a level of responsibility l’d not understood before.

Life today bears no resemblance to life back then, with enormous healing evident in every aspect of my life. I jokingly refer to the distinction of the way life felt before that appointment as being of ‘my previous life’.

The period of healing instigated that day opened a new dimension for me and to life that I can liken to experiencing life in color suddenly after only ever experiencing it in black and white.

I have often reflected on the fact that without the severity of the condition I suffered and my inability to get relief from anything (and everything) else I knew, I doubt I would have been open to booking an appointment that day, let alone to what was offered by way of healing through Serge Benhayon from that point on.

It is also the case that we seldom seek this level of healing in our lives unless we are faced with serious illness or calamity of some sort.

This l’ve observed through my own practice ever since and more times than l’d care to count… it is human nature or so it would seem, to live our lives as mere physical beings without awareness of the greater dimensions of who we are, until life reminds us through the marker of our bodies and through healing that there is more to life than we are choosing to see and there is more to us than meets the eye…

  1. What you are sharing here Jenny to me has a deeper understanding
    ‘He helped me see the nature of deeper unresolved feelings I was often aware of but had never quite been able to understand their origins, deep feelings of sadness seemingly unrelated to my situation and circumstance.’
    We are touching on past lives where we have taken something on and over many reincarnations the energy is stored in our DNA. When the stored energy is released it allows the energy to move more freely around our bodies and that is the true healing.

  2. I had tried so many ways to heal myself, I understood there was more to what was happening to me than my physical body alone but it wasn’t until I found the Universal Medicine therapies that I found true healing, not short term relief but something that gave me understanding, and after releasing trauma, hurts and emotion from past experiences I found more of myself, my true self (the essence) taking up space again in my body. Truly, it was incredible, and to be honest I have never experienced anything before that works like Universal Medicine therapies – and I tried a lot of things.

  3. Is it possible that we are unaware that we are very sensitive beings? As we grow up circumstances occur that hurt our feelings and if left unexpressed can become lodged in our bodies and cause harm through illness and disease sometimes many years later. Having gone through years of psychotherapy where there was no understanding of the origin of my particular hurts that I carried around with me so nothing was ever resolved until I came across Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. This was what I would call a true blessing, because Serge Benhayon sees past our hurts to the divine beings we are and works back from the fact that at our core we are untouched by the deep unresolved feelings we carry within us. Heal those unresolved feelings and we are left with the purity of who we truly are and not what has been imposed onto us.

  4. When we hold both ourselves and another in true love and give them space to be deep healing and miracles can occur.

  5. Jennifer being “instantly met” is what I have felt and feel every time I meet Serge Benhayon. It’s like he understands where we are at, with no judgement and no investment towards us. Supporting us to heal, and that healing is deeper than ever felt with the modalities I searched for many years to help me feel wholesome again.

    And I LOVE the healing Universal Medicine has to offer. It’s non imposing and you govern how much healing you want to go to – simple.

  6. The feeling I get from this is that healing is not about removing symptoms or making us feel/be better, but it is about being whole again.

    1. Fumiyo, what I learnt since receiving esoteric healing therapies, is not only is it not about removing or relieving the symptoms, it is about YOU playing your part too. You have the ultimate responsibility the practitioners are to facilitate and support you – and I love that accountability.

  7. “there is more to life than we are choosing to see and there is more to us than meets the eye…” far more than we care to admit or feel comfortable seeing, but it is time to open our eyes and be blind no longer.

  8. Thank you Jenny, what comes through is the deep appreciation for this experience with Serge, and at a time where the depths of what was offered could be felt very profoundly. Your decency, care and humility as a student and practitioner was also very obvious, as was your openness to keep learning.

  9. ‘I was at my wits end, feeling desperate and at a loss to know where to turn.’ Enter Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine and life changes start to happen, simply because we are inspired to make changes and live differently, with the quality of tenderness uppermost. This is a great sharing Jenny.

  10. Whilst it is so important to take care of the symptoms of our ills sometimes we are missing the deeper nature of things and the healing that is on offer.

  11. This is an amazing line: “For the first time I knew I understood the relationship of these feelings to the condition I was suffering.” As it shows the power of the simplicity that Serge Benhayon works in. No fancy anything, no big words, messages or ideals. Just a simple opportunity to place different parts of your life together and to see the whole that you are, or have come to be. Beautiful.

  12. “Healing was no longer about being clever enough to know the right remedy or modality. It was an exchange of sorts, whereby the depth of healing a client could choose through seeing me was entirely dependent on the depth that I had chosen to go to in my own healing” – this really changes everything. If healing was not about the accumulated specialised knowledge and skills, any of us have a potential to offer healing to another through our daily interactions and meetings.

    1. I agree Fumiyo because love and truth offers us the greatest healing and there are so many practitioners of so many different modalities that lack both and yet there are so many people that are not skilled in any healing modality per se that are walking around simply offering healing as part of their natural living way.

  13. How extremely beautiful it is to read about such a transformational experience… It sounds so simple and yet, when anyone meets a person who has taken full responsibility for their life, and who lives in a way that reflects that responsibility… Miracles are always around the corner.

    1. cjames2012 You reminded me of something Jesus allegedly said over 2,000 years ago
      ‘John 14:12-14 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. ‘
      Jesus performed what where then termed miracles and many more miracles are happening today, it’s the same lineage The Ageless Wisdom that has been with us always.

  14. I can remember my first experience of the healing modalities of Unversal Medicine and I hadn’t felt like that after any treatment before. That deeper connection within and feeling so safe, held and cared for meant I naturally let go and could feel what I had been holding in my body release and clear. It was when I got off the table and started to move around when I could feel how much lighter and at ease I was in my body with an emanation within that was very powerful.

    1. I have so often got up from a healing session to find that my body has completely reconfigured and that my posture and walk has changed. Understanding that letting go rather than forcing my body to do things in the name of certain exercise, has a much more healing and profound effect on the body, its muscles and physiology.

    2. Universal Medicine have and continue to teach me integrity, love, purpose and responsibility to a level in this life I have not known. I deeply appreciate all they are, bring and reflect for it is much needed in the world.

  15. It’s a great point that the depths of healing a practitioner has reached is a key part of their service to others. We tend to think we receive a qualification and we do work, not what level are we at in our own healing and what does that bring to others? And such self healing and return to our soul is not confined to a healing clinic, it’s really applicable to all areas of life and all occupations because healing is on offer to everyone we interact with when we live connected to our soul.

  16. I so love your story Jennifer, I know a number of people including my wife that no longer suffer from asthma due to healing sessions with Serge and finding out the root cause of their ailments.

  17. This is a beautiful account of healing on an energetic and physical level that is felt in the body and has been experienced by so many who have chosen healing sessions with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.

  18. We know love so well, we know what it is to walk our life with integrity, yet we often wait until something really horrible happens for us to snap out of our ill behaviours. Isn’t this simply ignorant to what we know and what we feel?

    1. Indeed Caroline. I know this from my own experience, and try as I might to ignore and resist it, there is nothing else that heals us more deeply than the way we choose to live in connection to ourselves.

  19. The previous life is one that when your in it and have accepted it as your normal you never see it being not ok. The moment we are shown or connect to the fact that we are so much more than this, so much we can’t even start to comprehend. I to have found the Universal Medicine modalities out of this world and life changing. Where true deep healing takes place if we surrender to it. Serge Benhayon is the real deal and walks his talk and he is the most down to earth, loving and genuine man you ever meet with so much wisdom to share with us all.

  20. Realising that our illnesses are actually a product of our ill choices, we have a choice to either continue to live the way we do, or to start taking responsibility and change our choices.

  21. Whatever we go through we ultimately have a choice to see our own responsibility for what played out. It’s this honesty that opens the door to truly walking forward and letting go.

  22. This sort of healing is needed for all of humanity, to really understand what true healing is so we can move out of this ever increasing downward spiral out of control way our health is heading.

    1. We are really missing the being part in our healing, the being meaning the human being, the aspect of ourselves that is not physical, that is deeply sensitive, that has trauma and hurts, that holds back its beauty and fullness, etc, and generally understanding how all aspects of our being impacts on our body.
