Coming Back to Truth

By Anonymous, Lismore, Australia

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.

  1. Coming out of all the ideals and beliefs that we have about how we should be and how life should be can be a great freedom. However we are also left with having to feel everything that we have avoided up until then.

  2. Even a wee dose of self-honesty and self-responsibility can start transforming our lives in the most magical ways.

  3. Coming back to truth can be an intensely uncomfortable experience, especially when there is no pandering either. But with so much to relearn, grow from and expand into the discomfort is well rewarded.

  4. There are a lot of therapies and modalities in Byron Bay but Byron Bay does not show up in health statistics as a particularly beneficial place to live.

  5. ‘Ongoing care’ and the realisation that the teachings of Universal Medicine make absolute sense in the grandest, most unifying way, are like steady keels in my life now. No, it is not all smooth and perfect but yes I have more understanding and purpose than ever before.

  6. The teachings of Serge Benhayon do present all that we could need, but in the end he or the teachings don’t mean anything when we don’t do the work of connecting to ourselves, healing our hurts ourselves.

  7. Fighting Truth is like fighting thin air… as much as one may try the air will continue to be everything everywhere.

    1. The futility of trying to fight thin air has put a wry smile on my face. How mad resistance is when truth is all around us and always reflected by others, in the condition of the world, in the spark in someone’s eyes…

  8. When we welcome what truth is and the power it has in our lives we can deeply appreciate our choice to keep choosing it and the absolute love it offers us and others.

  9. Yet another testimonial to the awesome work that practitioners of Universal Medicine are offering to the community.

  10. “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.” Beautiful and an honest and real sharing of the support and truth of the teachings of Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine modalities and all they offer.

  11. Our living essence or inner-most is holding us all the time! It becomes a self-enlightening journey of building a sold foundation so we are not rocked by what is happening around us. When we respond to everyone with the Love we are then well on the way of deepening and thus holding our essence.

  12. We have so many rules 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.’ Such rules quite literally rule our lives and in the face of them we can often feel crushed. Letting these go can be a real liberation, for then we start to feel the truth of how we are living, which is always a point of power for us to move from.

    1. Great point to let go of rules that don’t work. The next step is to appreciate and confirm what does work. That creates a base for further expansion.

  13. ‘…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…’ Yes, it can be a challenge when truth is presented and depending on how ready we are to truly look at our choices will determine if we are ready to go there or not.

  14. We get many opportunities to come back to truth and sometimes we may delay a little, but truth continues to wink at us, and we learn to differentiate the difference between it and the other false set ups we have previously fallen for. Truth is very patient because we need to be ready to accept the teachings.

  15. Yes even when things tick all the boxes of ‘an amazing, easy and fun loving life loving life’ on the surface, we can feel deep down that all is not well. It can become confusing when the whole of society keeps confirming that picture and dismisses our awareness, and so often it becomes our normal to play along with the game. It has even become normal for people to have loads of issues they are struggling with and still say they are quite fine. Although it may be confronting in the beginning, it is an enormous blessing and support to have people not pandering to such games and offer a true reflection because they are already living it. Serge Benhayon is a wonderful example.

  16. The biggest turning point in my life was when I stopped searching on the outside to fix or solve my problems or issues, and instead changed direction and went within – and there I found a wealth of unlimited wisdom on tap…. we are all truly rich when we are able to access the Ageless wisdom.

  17. When we become aware that our life doesn’t work, we try alternatives, but what do we do when we have tried all alternatives that make sense to us? Then we are in limbo and either shut ourselves off as life is hopeless or stay open and see what happens.

  18. When we drop the ideals and beliefs of what will make us happy for a moment, there is often the dis-ease of not living in full connection of our innermost.

  19. Serge Benhayon simply lives and delivers to us the truth of what is going on with no pandering no excuses just our responsibility with ourselves our body and the understanding of the all we are part of with the deepest love and integrity.

  20. Like you, I went to see Serge for a fix, a fix to the issues at hand and yet what I discovered was far grander than this, it was the re-connection back to me and with that not a fix, but the start of truly living life again.

  21. The most important thing is to not dim down our light and play small out of reaction to society. To be all of us is medicine on the body because our body is not restricted to be less than who we are

  22. ‘‘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.” Yes he delivers truth that is not always comfortable to hear, but rather discomfort than to continue to live in a way filled with everything we are not. Thank God for Serge Benhayon.

  23. It is in our relationship with ourselves and the quality we bring to that that we set the foundation for our lives. It is so simple. And if we are willing it is this simplicity that disarms the struggle.

  24. “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.” It is exactly this that makes Serge stand out from anyone that I have ever come across also. His consistency with how he meets people, regardless of where they have been in their life or what they have done is incidental. He always offers the same degree of true love, without question.

  25. While your life by the sea might sound ideal or even idyllic, it feels like it might have lacked purpose and direction; and while things still look good from the outside, the inner emptiness can become quite overwhelming and depressing even.

    1. Yes, it is quite illuminating to see many faces of locals during the markets – they live in one of the most beautiful areas in the world but the faces don’t show it.

  26. ‘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.’ We underestimate what a power-full influence we allow these pressures to have on us, if we acknowledge them at all.

  27. “Coming back to truth” can often be a very slow process, as there are usually many layers of life experiences getting in the way of hearing what we have been presented with. We live in a world where most want to be fixed now, and quickly, so they can get back to living how they have always been, so I find it inspiring how your healing process has unfolded when you were ready to take the next step. I too have come to understand that healing cannot be rushed, it is a process that will unfold in its own timing, with our support and commitment.

    1. It takes time and commitment to peel off the layers that we have put on and over our innate knowing of the truth and what life is really about.

  28. The joy of having sessions with Universal Medicine practitioners is that there are so many different modalities on offer and you know that each one will be delivered with the utmost integrity, there will always be something to suit your current needs.

  29. ‘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.’ This has been such a gift for me to learn I can handle anything, that there is so much more to me than just the human being because when Serge does deliver truth in this he communicates the love and the wisdom we are all from and are. There are harsh realities but nothing is beyond love.

  30. “At times, I felt disappointed because he [Serge Benhayon] 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.” There is no greater form of love or healing than to reflect the truth and for oneself to discern was is true.

  31. It is a very rare privilege to be met by someone like Serge Benhayon who does not pander, has no vested interests or hidden agenda and just says it how it truthfully is; sometimes we might react, wanting sympathy or another’s investment in our state of being but neither serves and only adds insult to injury, as the saying goes. True healing begins when we learn to be honest and start taking responsibility for our choices in life.

    1. Well said…… “It is a very rare privilege to be met by someone like Serge Benhayon who does not pander, has no vested interests or hidden agenda and just says it how it truthfully is;”

    2. ‘True healing begins when we learn to be honest and start taking responsibility for our choices in life.’ Love this, Gabriele. The road to true healing may not always be a smooth one, but it is the only road that is going to get us out of the mess we have created and the only road that will rise up to meet us once the guidance of our inner compass is surrendered to and embraced.

    1. Absolutely, Joseph. And should this not be a great big red flag for us all, this looking ‘at everything in life except our body and our heart…’ as that which we most avoid is often that which most needs our attention.

    2. What you say Joseph is such a surprise, it is such bizarre behavior and yet it is so true;
      “We will look at everything in life except our body and our heart. Yet despite all that they continue to do what they can to get us back in line.”

      …And as you say this is so miraculous; what Love our heart and body holds us in even when we are constantly trying not to listen to the wisdom they offer us!

      Like the author describes, after living in levels of disregard of what we know in our inner most, when we meet somone who simply lives and presents the truth it can be very confronting!

      And yet we do feel and know truth when it is presented and it offers us a choice to keep going against our own grain or to jump in feet first and see what a life is like when we start really listening to the truth of our inner heart.
