By Natasha Ferré, Film TV producer, creative director, presenter
I have had the pleasure of interviewing and working with many presenters over my many years working in television and not too many stand out of the crowd. One man did certainly turn my head and has continued to do so over the few years I have known him. I first met Serge Benhayon when I attended one of the healing courses he presented for Universal Medicine. I remember back then that I felt an immediate response to what Serge was saying.
To me it was like, ‘Far out, not only does this guy know his stuff, I can really feel that he is speaking the truth.’ More interestingly he didn’t have ‘cheat notes’, a reference book, even a PowerPoint to refer to. No, he delivered three full days to a crowd of hundreds, with nothing but his knowledge.
During the harrowing time following my brother’s death I had very little professional help and this resulted in me bottling up all my feelings on the inside. I was hurting deeply and had become defensive as I had lost all trust in human nature.
In the meantime I heard, that there was to be a presentation in London by a man who was known as the healer’s healer. I immediately felt the impulse to attend, but had no idea why … that was until the presentation started.
I skill-fully kept people at arm’s length, mastering social niceties and politeness to ensure I was not challenged. I am in no doubt that this would have perpetuated unchecked had I not met Serge, and I would be struggling now with a level of mental ill health that would be impacting my physical well-being and the health of all my relationships.
During these years of indoctrination into the education system in its’ current form – we develop our ability to write in a way that ‘fits in’ with the way the world recognises ‘competent, scholarly or professional’ writing. As adult learners – we are taught how to reference the written work of other authors, and that an essay or thesis cannot be written credibly without the backing of reference material. Given the way the world is – we can say that all this has its place for now and indeed serves a purpose, in the way we live and move in all facets of the temporal world.
What is missing from the world of authorship however, are more people consistently writing from a place of deep connection within themselves.
Connection meaning – true connection with the soul that allows one to communicate and express freely and truly from that essence.
It used to feel like I was being offered a reason for keeping on going, not to give up but to trust that there will be an answer one day to all the questions I had about life.
I used to find myself saying out loud, to no one in particular, things like:
This has been my experience of finding Serge Benhayon, a precious gem of immeasurable quality who has a way of living and understanding the world that changes everything. To say everything is not a piece of hyperbole, there is quite literally not an aspect of my life now that is not different – from food, to work, to exercise, to relationships, to how I breathe, everything means everything.
Hence why we can watch a little bit of war from our warm, comfy, heavily cushioned living room sofa, 30 seconds of what's going on in Syria, and when we've had enough, switch over to, say, Celebrity Big Brother!
And then there’s the deceptive, polished media images of faces, bodies, lifestyles, all contributing to us detesting ourselves in parts or completely, so we will go and buy a solution to ‘love’ ourselves once again.
We live our lives through screens and images in this way, and we don't seem to distinguish what is real or fake anymore. It doesn't even seem to matter to us. This creation of images can affect life even more powerfully and stealthily than enunciation, or even enactment. The imagined pictures can lodge way too deeply in the private sphere, especially when the public sphere is already so fragile, dislodging much else.
Over the years I became very cynical of ever finding a philosophy of truth that would make a difference to the world, one that was practical and easily lived. It seemed to me that the world was full of people and organisations who claimed to know the magic of the Universe but with each and everyone I explored, it was easy to see they were not living what they were so very keen to talk about. They took money for what they claimed to know and lived it not. What was the worth of any such claim or talk that was not lived? Their talk changed nothing except to entrench people even deeper in the malaise of the world, being promised answers that were as false as quick sand.
While I had many interesting experiences and a level of awareness, at my core I knew there was more. There was an unsettlement in my body and being and the desire to gather more. Even so there was a part of me that accepted that this might be as good as it gets in the great so called ‘mystery’ of life. After all my life was pretty ‘good ‘by all accounts.
A close friend of mine had recommended I see Serge, and from what she shared I felt inspired to go along for a session. What has transpired since that first meeting is not so easy to convey in words.
A man who deeply loves his family and who brings that same quality of love to all.
