I have had what is normally thought to be a very successful life, gaining a first class honours BA, a PhD and being awarded the University Medal, working as teacher of English Literature at University, travelling the world with a famous husband and beautiful young daughter. I had books published by prestigious international publishers, won a prize for the outstanding reference work in Britain for 1999, and was a respected authority in my field world-wide.
When I was fifty nine I had my first experience of Sacred Esoteric Healing with Serge Benhayon and it was so deeply beautiful, expansive, and restorative that I woke up the next morning for the first time in years feeling rested and harmonious with none of the usual anxiety or dread at having to face the new day. As a practitioner Serge Benhayon was the most respectful I had ever met and if you asked me what struck me most I would respond that it was his integrity and wisdom.
From these presentations and healing courses I have also received a brilliant education in self-care – how to truly look after and care for my body, by eating fresh healthy food, honouring the cycles of sleep, having regular dental and medical check-ups, none of which I bothered to do before this time. Although I thought I was reasonably health-conscious before, I in fact trashed my body with drugs, alcohol, lack of sleep, and no exercise. It was Serge Benhayon who encouraged me to pay heed to such things, to become practical in life, to commit to being in the world and contribute to it to the best of my ability. He also encouraged me to become aware of, for example, the invaluable contribution that medical practioners brings to our lives. I hadn’t seen a dentist for around 30 years, and when I did, I was told that I had a chronic gum disease which would mean that I would lose at least 5 teeth by the time I was 70. I saw a peridontist who helped me greatly and I used all my techniques of self-care assiduously. When I re-saw the periodontist in 6 months, she could not believe the turn around in my gum condition which she had previously not thought possible, and I am now 70 and have lost no teeth. Likewise chronic back pain I had, from years of carrying heavy loads of supermarket shopping up a hundred steps and fifteen minute walk to my island home, has been turned around through Connective Tissue therapy and new lifestyle choices.
This education brought by Serge Benhayon brought me back into the world of practicality, a world where I now do what needs to be done, instead of running away from or ignoring it. And interestingly this commitment to life has enriched my life immeasurably and the lives of many others around me – the parents of my students, for example, invariably say that not only have they got through the exams very well, but that their confidence and well-being has improved considerably as a result of being taught by me.
Furthermore, by using the complementary modalities of Universal Medicine alongside conventional medicine my health has improved exponentially. At the age of 70 I have never felt more alive and vital. I work full time, am still able to contribute to society, have a full social calendar, am writing a new book, new songs, and life feels as if it has a new spaciousness, so that there is no call for stress or anxiousness, for over-load and overwhelm. When my brother and daughter first got together with me, from interstate cities, after my aligning to this simple, healthy way of living, they could not believe how young and beautiful I was looking and wanted to know every detail of how I was doing it. When I ever have to give my age for a form, at a reception desk for example, the person’s jaw drops and they want to know what I am doing to look and be so young and well. Now I feel my life is truly beginning to be ‘successful’.
My vital body and life, as witnessed by those who have known me intimately in the past, is true evidence of proof that the Universal Medicine healing modalities and teachings work, and what is more, work like nothing else I have ever experienced in this life. My appreciation of and love for Serge Benhayon whom I have known very well for over 11 years, who is the truest and most practical of practitioners and presenters, can never be fully expressed in words.
