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. “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 is so true yet it need not be. If we educate children from birth to honour, respect and maintain their connection to their essence, with which they are born, they can unfold and grow expressing their true nature rather than having to re-discover it as a result of a ‘calamity of some sort’.

  2. Before coming across Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon I felt haunted by a deep sadness and depression, emotions that would become very evident when spending time on my own. Despite having years of ‘alternative’ medicine nothing got to the core of it. One session with Serge and for the first time in my life, I properly understood their origins and was able to release a huge amount from my body, the consequence of which I was able to cut my alcohol consumption over night. This is the marker of true healing, a deep understanding of the ‘why’, releasing any investment in it and letting go of the energy, then experiencing a genuine shift in behaviour as a consequence.

  3. Before Universal Medicine I didn’t understand there was a difference between a healing and a cure and would always be happy with a cure as it meant I could continue living as before without having to look at anything. Not a wise approach to life but one that guarantees we don’t learn and evolve.

    1. Very good point Doug, I have this mentality of ‘just fix this and move on’, not deepening to a level that supports me to really assess what is occurring and why it is occurring.

  4. Jenny I can relate to what you have shared
    “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.”
    This happened to me all the time as a child to well into my 50’s I could be laughing at something funny that had happened with friends one minute and the next I would be crying uncontrollably. As you said everything was way out of proportion to the situation, it was at times very embarrassing. Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine therapies and workshops have supported me to peel away the layers of life I had encased myself with and get to the nub of the issue and once that was done and healed I can now laugh at something funny without dissolving into tears.

    1. Mary, Jenny the same here your comments remind me of the rollercoaster way in which I would be living my life, what deep appreciation I have right now for the difference since Universal Medicine therapies became part of my life through my deep love and care for myself.

  5. ‘…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.’ I love the distinction being made here. There are things that makes sense to the mind when we intellectually agree with something but then there is that whole body sense that something is true. The latter is so much deeper than a mere thought process, an absolute knowingness in the very cells and particles of our being. When something is true, we know it with everything we are.

    1. I have to agree because when I first went along to workshop with Serge, a lot of what he said didn’t make sense to my way of thinking but my body just knew it was the truth and that in itself was a miracle as well as my body knew better than my mind and even in the checked out way I was living I still felt it and couldn’t wait till the next time to see him and the next time was a one on one session which totally blew me away.

  6. …’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.’ Before Universal Medicine, this was not something I had considered or even chose to be aware of, but I can now appreciate that we cannot heal another’s issue until we have healed it within ourself.

  7. Meeting Serge Benhayon also brought to me the understanding around true healing and what that actually means as I too settled for the quick cure, never to delve deeper into the real cause, and wondering why certain areas of my life, didn’t change.

  8. ‘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.’ And in addition the depth to which they were willing to nominate that which was untrue and then in turn surrender to the healing on offer.

  9. I have a huge amount of appreciation reading this post as the way you describe your first session with Serge Benhayon is very similar to the way I felt when I met you for the first time as a practitioner of my first chakra-puncture session. It is clear that Serge shares the wisdom he has connected to with all so that this world is filled with thousands who can reflect a true way to live. I am also appreciating that I now do this too as a result of my first session with you not in a treatment room but in the way I live my life.

  10. It was within your body that you registered and knew what was being presented back to you. In this it shows us that not only do we already know everything, but that it is from the body we know it.

  11. Receiving a healing which reconnects us to our natural state of being and stillness is different than receiving a treatment that aims to remove symptoms.

  12. Amongst a lot of inspiration, one particular thing I love about this article is the clarity of something you experienced 17 years ago still felt absolutely currently in your body. This is a hint to the vast wisdom of our bodies, to inspire, hold and guide us… the more open and receptive we are the more our bodies can share.

  13. We can get things so wrong, thinking we are on track with long meditations or intellectual study, when the truth is that we already have everything within us all to return to who we truly are. The teachings from Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine Therapies are completely life changing.
