In my mid-twenties, I was living with a couple of flatmates in Byron Bay. I was living an apparently idyllic lifestyle, with close friends, many hours spent walking on the beach, going surfing and being creative. I worked part-time as a graphic designer for a local newspaper and in odd retail jobs.
It looked like an easy fun-loving life on the surface, though I felt there was something amiss in my life. I felt a deep sense of sadness that I was not living my full potential and that my relationships were not working. My intimate relationships never seemed to last and I would usually be the one to run away. I was in a poor mental state and recall feeling very lost and alone, often calling Lifeline for someone to talk to.
I remember speaking with my flatmate about these issues and she suggested I could go to see Serge Benhayon, a healing practitioner who lived nearby. After living in Byron Bay for many years, I had tried many healing therapies, including different styles of meditation, yoga, chiropractic, natural therapy, acupuncture, psychic readings and massage. I was interested in crystals and energy, and read many spiritual new age books to try and find a deeper understanding of what was missing in my life.
My appointment with Serge was yet another attempt to find something that I thought would ‘fix’ me, in much the same way as I had approached other healing therapies in the past.
I saw Serge for a few sessions and was always met with a level of care and clarity and a level of integrity that I had never experienced before. At times, I felt disappointed because he did not pander to me or sympathise with my problems, but would respond in a simple and clear way with the truth of what he felt was going on, without ever trying to coerce me to accept what he said. Over time I found this to be a true sense of love and care, though initially I found it very challenging. This was because I was so used to looking for relief from my troubles, not taking responsibility for where I had ended up in my life, and I wanted someone to prop me up with what I wanted to hear to please me and appease my emptiness inside. Serge did not do any of this – he delivered truth that was not always comfortable to hear, but that I knew was true by the way I felt inside.
Regardless of my inner struggle, meeting a man with such a high level of integrity and care was a huge blessing, as it was something I had not experienced previously in my life. Despite this, there came a point when I decided not to continue to go to see him for any more sessions. Looking back, it was because I was feeling confronted and I did not want to go any further with going within and returning to what I already innately knew, to uncover what was being presented to me.
A fair time later, at the age of 27, I experienced some significant mental stress after putting too much pressure on myself and not caring for myself deeply or dealing with my inner turmoil. I was trying to fit the picture of what life should look like. I was studying, moving house, starting a new job, and having a long distance relationship. In order to try to alleviate my tension I was self-medicating with homeopathy treatments from the naturopathy course I was studying. I ended up in hospital for 3 weeks before I was well enough to return home and to care for myself. This was devastating and it shook my confidence very strongly. Despite this wake-up call, I continued to not commit to relationships, though I desperately longed for real intimacy. I felt like my life was not going anywhere. I continued with poor mental health over a number of years and was hospitalised again after my father passed away.
One day my mother went for lunch with a group of friends and met a woman who was offering healing sessions in Sacred Esoteric Healing. My mother suggested that I would possibly like to have some healing, as I was struggling with relationship issues. My mother gave me her number and I called the lady, and decided to go and see her, as I knew I needed support.
When I met the woman, she explained she was practising a Universal Medicine modality taught by Serge Benhayon. I was a bit taken aback with this because I had already seen Serge years before, but had decided not to pursue this line of healing or any other healing for that matter. However, with where I was at in my life, I knew I needed something to support me and decided I would re-commit to my own healing. I ended up having regular sessions of Sacred Esoteric Healing and Esoteric Chakra-puncture for a year with this woman, which supported me greatly. Because she was so real and practical, I began to open up to her and began feeling safer expressing myself with others.
I began to attend the monthly presentations held by Universal Medicine which were a great opportunity to get to meet other people who were also interested in health, wellbeing and true healing. The presentations supported me to understand living well through the connection with my body and having healthy relationships – firstly with myself and then with others. This was beautiful for me to feel, as I had longed to be with others who also cared about these things.
In my 30’s I started seeing a psychologist who supported me with regular sessions. Their approach also supported me, since I was never pandered to but rather lovingly supported with truth. With this truth as a foundation, and the chance to feel and express my feelings, I began to take more responsibility for my life and my choices. I then started seeing an esoteric practitioner who supported me to develop my relationship with my body and stop living so much from my head and the raciness and checked-out state I had been living in.
All in all, I began to find the inner life and love I so longed for and began to live it in my outer life.
Through Serge Benhayon’s teachings and the regular support of esoteric practitioners of the modalities of Universal Medicine, along with regular visits to my GP and developing a loving relationship with myself and life, I have found another way of living life from the fullness and potential of who I am, with health and vitality and purpose. Living from an inner-most self that I always knew was within me, means I am now living and enjoying life more than ever before.
It’s not perfect, and I still struggle with the pressures placed on us by society about how we think life should be, or what we should be doing with it, and how we should be looking and what we should have. I also know it’s not about being perfect either – none of us are or will be. But with the ongoing care and support I am now giving myself and taking responsibility for my life, along with the loving people in my everyday life, and the support of Universal Medicine practitioners, I feel I have had the chance to go deeper within to find the gem that I am and to live it in the world.

It’s interesting to reflect on how we are in life, we say we don’t like it, and we don’t as it is at times agony to be human, yet when the true healing is on offer we can also turn away from it. There are a lot of reflections in your blog for me to look at around that same theme – am I truly seeking healing and a return to my own inner truth? And if not, what are the blocks there? Thank you, great sharing.
Most people would jump at the chance to live this sort of life
‘I was living an apparently idyllic lifestyle, with close friends, many hours spent walking on the beach, going surfing and being creative. I worked part-time as a graphic designer for a local newspaper and in odd retail jobs.’
So it is interesting to read that no matter how idyllic life seemed there was an unsettlement within you and you found this unsettlement never goes away no matter how much we try to put a lid on these feelings.
For thousands of people meeting Serge Benhayon has changed their lives as he supports people to understand this unsettlement and why they feel it, this can be challenging to accept and deal with as you yourself have experienced. If we can get beyond the ‘quick-fixes’ of life there is a whole different world to discover.
I agree we have pressures placed on us by society but at the same time, it’s how we are in those pressures is the key. I totally get it and you are not alone. Life is designed in such a way, that it will have this effect on us. Unless we hold ourselves so that we are not affected, because the love and care we have for ourselves, is so foundational that nothing penetrates it – just how Serge Benhayon presents himself.
‘meeting a man with such a high level of integrity and care was a huge blessing’ Absolutely. And 13 years on from knowing him despite many a thing that has been thrown at him the high level of integrity and care is still very much there … which is pretty awesome and incredibly inspiring ✨
Vicky I can only concur, the level of integrity Serge Benhayon holds is beyond words. I have seen no other human do this, yet…
To me the title of this blog says it all ‘Coming Back to Truth’. We all innately know the truth and have walked away from it. All we need to do is walk back to it. The true truth has always and will always be there ✨ And Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine are the most beautiful beacon of light shining this for all of humanity ✨
‘Serge did not do any of this – he delivered truth that was not always comfortable to hear, but that I knew was true by the way I felt inside.’ When Serge delivers the truth we are given space to feel its authenticity for ourselves. Despite the discomfort of having my own choices exposed in the early years, this inner knowing felt so sure that it overrode the discomfort and I haven’t looked back.
I agree with what you are saying anonymous that Serge Benhayon does not pander anyone. He just tells it as it is and this can be quite challenging because we have built our society on trying to fix something rather than look at the nub of the issue. When we pick apart the issue it is possible to discover that there wasn’t really an issue to begin with, just a story that keeps us in the continuous loop of emotions, dramas and dilemmas.
I agree Richard but in truth it’s not Serge that we’re hearing, it’s the Ageless Wisdom. A wisdom which comes through Serge Benhayon in exactly the same way as it has come through every other messenger since the beginning of time. And there will come a time when the Ageless Wisdom comes through us all and unites us in the common purpose of serving God and God alone.
Meeting Serge Benhayon is a meeting with heaven and beyond. Seriously this man knows the universe and its workings like no-one else on earth.
So well said Le.
Awesome to hear how much you turned your life around and of the people in your life who truly supported you with this.
I love this understanding. That everything we need is inside us and our ‘job’ is to externalise this in life. Simple.
