Cause of Severe Migraines Revealed

May 23, 2016
Francene Cartaar

Albert Einstein proved that ‘everything is energy’.

Serge Benhayon took this one step further by stating that, ‘then everything is because of energy’.

The implications of this profound addition asks one to consider that all situations in life: all turmoils, triumphs, illnesses and diseases have their root cause in energy. Since 1999 Serge Benhayon has presented and written extensively on qualifying the type of energy that can be chosen and the true meaning of Energetic Responsibility: two topics of great benefit to humanity and worthy of further exploration than space allows here. Through this understanding Serge Benhayon has supported hundreds with serious ailments and illnesses, people who, in addition to conventional medical care, have sought support and understanding for their sometimes intractable conditions. Serge Benhayon does not offer a ‘cure’, but the understanding of the underlying energetic cause of the circumstances that an individual finds himself or herself. The potential for true healing, possible as a result of accurately dealing with the underlying energetic root cause of any ailment and illness, is profound beyond measure.

Here is one such recount.

Most females in my family suffered from severe migraines and I experienced my own first migraine at around the age of 14. There was no pain at the start just a distortion in my vision, but then about 30 minutes later the pain started. They continued into my 20’s and 30’s but mostly they were manageable and infrequent. 

In September 2001, one month after turning 40 and one month after coming out of an extremely stressful business situation, I started to suffer migraines of a severity that I had never experienced before. There was no visual distortion, just strong pain in my head and/or eyes. This confused me as these migraines were different to what I had previously experienced. I told myself it was because of the demands and stresses I faced over the previous 18 months and hence began my search for a ‘cure’.

For the next 9 years I visited many, many different health professionals, placing myself on their table with the mindset of ‘here I am, fix me’. I often joked that every healthcare provider in the area had a client card with my name on it.

The various professionals I consulted included:

  • GP, including undertaking a CT scan
  • Holistic GP
  • Compounding Pharmacist
  • Naturopath
  • Osteopath
  • Chinese herbalist including acupuncture
  • Ayurvedic practitioner
  • Attended a well known women’s doctor and author

I also explored such things as:

  • Naturopathic massages
  • Various forms of yoga including breathing and mediation exercises
  • Bioidentical hormones
  • Vitamin B12 injections
  • Various supplements
  • Anything I could read on the internet regarding migraines
  • Changing my diet

At one point I was prescribed medication which did reduce the pain of the migraine but left my feet feeling numb for 3 days afterwards and so I discontinued this. I also found myself in hospital for the first time when I could no longer cope with the pain and was on an intravenous drip painkiller – effectively to switch my brain off. The pain persisted and I lived on strong painkillers to get by. The migraines were frequent and would last for up to 4 days. 

During this time I was working full-time and functioning, somehow, in a constant state of pain, confusion and lethargy. I was taking painkillers that would upset my stomach and herbal treatments that would cause rashes. I dreaded each day in case there was another migraine or the migraine from the day before continuing. I lost all sense of light heartedness and my children later referred to this as ‘the dark times’ as I was irritable, withdrawn, in constant pain and really not much fun to be with. 

I ultimately took 2 years off work but still experienced migraines. 

In my search for a ‘fix’ I heard of Universal Medicine and attended one of the talks presented by Serge Benhayon on a Friday night. What he spoke of intrigued me. So in 2010 I booked an appointment to see Serge and as he had a long waiting list it took 9 months for my appointment to come around.

From the moment I entered his clinic room it felt different to any other health practitioner I had visited. There was an easy calmness about Serge. I explained that I was suffering migraines and gave some brief detail.

Serge offered that resentment and frustration was behind the migraines.

I listened intently as this was explained further to me and it was at this moment that ‘the penny dropped’. We discussed the situations in which I had felt these emotions. It all started to make sense particularly as the word ‘resentment’ had been coming into my thoughts in certain situations.

I was given a brief Esoteric Massage that was exceptionally gentle and caring to conclude the session and left his clinic with an explanation, feeling confident and ‘relieved’ that I had finally found a practitioner that could help me. Despite his substantial waiting list Serge said he would contact me for another appointment and he did shortly thereafter.

Since those two appointments I have seen various Universal Medicine practitioners (as trained by Serge Benhayon)  and also participated in classes and courses offered by Universal Medicine. Each has assisted me with becoming more connected to my body and also understanding and observing when frustration and resentment would creep into my thoughts. Gradually, over a period of time, the migraines lessened. Today I am free of migraines. What was really fabulous was that I no longer felt that I was placing myself on a practitioner’s table with the mindset to ‘fix me’. I could see that I had played a part in the migraines and now this provided me with confidence that the migraines could be reduced. 

Today at the age of 54 I feel better than I did in my 40’s. Now I realise how much the migraines were keeping me away from myself as I was in constant reaction to the pain. The two appointments with Serge provided a natural catalyst to understand and unlock the root cause of the migraines I was experiencing. 

I am immensely grateful to have been able to do this after so many years of suffering and thinking that I should just resign myself to them because of my family history. It is amazing to feel my fun self again and not dread each day. I am relishing a return to the lighthearted and loving way and taking this to all my relationships with family, friends and work colleagues instead of withdrawing.

To describe the magnitude of what Serge Benhayon has offered me is: Freedom.

    Super article Francine! I can vouch for every word you have written. I too suffered from migraines especially between the ages of 45-55. When I was around 60 years old, I attended a presentation by Serge Benhayon in which the root cause of migraines was revealed. It made a lot of sense to me. That night I had a migraine to beat all migraines but I just kept aware of what was causing it. I knew at about 8am in the morning that that was the last migraine I would ever have as I knew how I had to lead my life in order to heal it. That indeed was the last migraine I ever had, 8 years ago now! Serge Benhayon is indeed a man of deep wisdom who intimately knows how energy works and he has shared with the world how to unfold this innate capacity within ourselves. Just brilliant.

  • Reply Bernadette Curtin July 4, 2016 at 9:18 am

    My experience has been similar to yours Francine, experiencing severe migraines from childhood and until I began seeing Universal Medicine practitioners about eight years ago. Understanding and accepting that I was responsible for the frustration and reaction to the pain, how I made my body the enemy, how every thought affects my health and well-being as well as my relationships, has led to me making wiser and more loving choices. Letting go of a need for sympathy was another step which came in a moment of realisation one day, and this was another load off my back. Gradually and in my own time I am empowered to make choices about food, rest, exercise, work projects, healing and my relationship with myself and my purpose that are transformative. I am forever deeply appreciative of the inspiring life and work of Serge Benhayon.

    • Reply Annelies van Haastrecht December 31, 2017 at 8:22 pm

      I have had severe migraines too, started with regular headaches when I was young and ended with migraines every week a few days in a row. Knowing the root cause through sessions and attending the courses of Universal Medicine inspired me to make changes in how I was with myself and with others, never anyone to blame. Choosing to be responsible for what ever was going on in my life. Your remark about letting go of a need for sympathy stayed with me, especially ‘ a need’. I know going in sympathy is not true, nevertheless sympathy has been big in my life and still it is there now and then but with reading your comment I feel I should ask myself, do I have a need for sympathy? I will feel into it and come back to this .

  • Reply Mary-Lou Reed July 5, 2016 at 1:16 am

    Knowing that we have a responsibility for our own health is key to healing. As you experienced, being on the table with a ‘fix me’ attitude, we are giving our power away. Only by taking responsibility ourselves can we feel empowered to bring changes to our lives and how we live and feel in our bodies.

  • Reply Fiona Cochran July 5, 2016 at 5:31 am

    ‘Freedom’ is a word I was using to describe how my life is now to a friend. I feel free from many things including the traps of drink, drugs and smoking. Free because there is nothing in my body that comes close to being tempted by them which some years ago couldn’t have been further from the truth.

  • Reply Jennifer Greenham July 8, 2016 at 5:24 am

    The subtle yet very powerful shift in our understanding of what causes our bodily aches and pains is profoundly freeing, as you describe Francene. It is amazing when I reflect back on different times in my life, doing the rounds consulting anyone and everyone looking for ‘the fix’ when all along it came back to me and how I was living with myself. Serge’s teachings ask us only to look honestly at our situations, and the power of truth reveals the long sought after answers.

  • Reply Sarah Flenley July 8, 2016 at 6:00 am

    This blog should be written in the sky for all to see. It sums up so much of what Serge Benhayon offers society. He offers us to get down to what is really going on and look at what part of it, is our responsibility. And to be honest, most of it is our responsibility. What a great story and I love that Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and the practitioners are supporting people to experience what true freedom is. And you know what, it involves a fair level of responsibility. Yep. True Story.

  • Reply Leigh Matson July 8, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    When asking for advice from Serge or other Universal Medicine practitioners the support has always been directed inwardly, empowering what is already within me and asking to look at my part played in the situation. This has supported my life far more than the blaming and the ‘fix it for me’ attitude that was so strong and hangs around occasionally. However today the more I start to look at my part in a situation the more it heals quicker.

  • Reply Aimee Edmonds July 25, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    What I’ve realised is that it all starts with us and it all ends with us, we can’t blame others or things outside of us, we can only look at how we have been with events and people, how we react or respond and how we are with ourselves. This support Serge Benhayon delivers is empowering always and that’s because it is always delivered with love and in respect of the choices we have made. He always, in my experience and observation, see’s everyone for who they truly are and the choices around where they are at now. Pandering in our world is a dis-ease and illness in itself… yes the person might get some form of momentary relief but the real reason and issue lays dormant ready to raise its incessant head again until we see and heal it.

    • Reply Jo Elmer October 22, 2016 at 1:44 am

      Yes, Aimee, I also have found that the huge difference in how Serge supports people to make positive & lasting changes is the absence of pandering to what we ‘want to hear’ and going truth-fully to what it is we are doing that is causing the disharmony.

      No one else in all my “searches” to find help asked me to take full responsibility for how I had been living that contributed to my unhappiness… I did not want to go there… but eventually I started to want the Whole Truth; this is when I found Serge and The Ancient Teachings he brings through.

      I have learned to look at all the ways I have been reacting to the world and I am choosing not to indulge in that but to focus more on appreciating and sharing who I really am. As a result I now have a much more honest, balanced and loving relationship with myself and in turn with everyone and everything else.

    This article is the epitome of self responsibility, and how understanding again brings that responsibility to the fore for each of us to claim and live by.

  • Reply Tricia Nicholson July 30, 2016 at 3:22 am

    As a migraine sufferer myself starting as a child at a catholic boarding school into my life onwards I too began to understand what was going on at the times they came and my life as a result of meeting Serge Benhayon and this has also changed my life. Through true healing I no longer suffer Migraines and they have become a thing of the past something I would never have thought possible. Taking responsibility for one’s life and with understanding and true care and learning to be the love we are makes so much difference and allows a true healing and change to the lives of myself and many many others. Thank you for your honest sharing Francene.

  • Reply Judith Andras July 30, 2016 at 1:22 pm

    This is the amazing thing about Serge Benhayon, he does not offer you a quick fix but asks you to take responsibility for your choices. Whilst that is not always easy and not everyone’s cup of tea, it is immensely self-empowering and allows oneself to remove the root causes of whatever ailment one is suffering.

  • Reply mary sanford August 2, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    This, to me, is what sets Serge Benhayon apart from any other practitioner I have been to. He doesn’t ‘fix you’ he goes straight to the heart of the matter and from there it is the choices one then makes to either deal with the underlying cause or not.
    Most practitioners I met while trying to find a cure for the migraines were trying to ‘fix’ the migraines with tablets, potions and herbs but nothing worked. If they did, it was at the detriment of something else suffering in the body. Like being so drugged up my body couldn’t function properly. No doctor, practitioner or Psychiatrist explained to me that I was feeling frustrated and resentful. When I heard this at a workshop I was attending it all made complete sense to me and it brought such a relief to the body.

  • Reply mary sanford August 2, 2016 at 3:49 pm

    Serge Benhayon is a phenomenal man and to me it is a crying shame that the scientists are so locked up in their mental fortresses that they do not want to see that here is a man that holds the answers to all of the world’s dilemmas. They should be tripping over each other to beat a path to his door. We say on the one hand we want the world to change, but could it be that actually we have become far too comfortable to actually make the changes needed? So we could all prosper, not just a few.

  • Reply Ruth Ketnor August 4, 2016 at 2:06 am

    Francene thank you. I can relate well to your story, I too had severe migraines for about 12 years that lasted days at a time. Like you, I tried so many avenues to fix them. Serge Benhayon’s teachings helped me to completely stop them by taking responsibility and looking at how I was reacting to life through frustration, resentment and rage. Dealing with these emotions and learning to live life differently was the answer. Freedom… I totally agree. What Serge Benhayon brings by his own way of living and teachings offers huge transformations to take place for people. No fixing, just truth, lovingly put.

  • Reply Stephen Gammack August 5, 2016 at 10:59 pm

    A remarkable healing really, to dissolve the migraines through lifestyle choices is a miracle, a miracle of our own choosing. Imagine taking every health complaint we ever suffered from and asking honestly and humbly how it came to pass, what our own role was in creating it, and what momentum we need to stop to bring about a change. After all, no-one would want to suffer the discomfort of migraines so it is worthwhile considering most deeply what is here written.

    • Reply Andrew Mooney August 17, 2016 at 3:51 pm

      Great point you make here Stephen – a miracle of our own choosing. We tend to view miracles as things that others do for us i.e being ‘cured’ by someone else. What if a true miracle was due to us becoming aware of an energy that we are choosing that is harming our bodies and then realising that we can choose otherwise and committing to that?

  • Reply Susan Green August 8, 2016 at 6:12 am

    What an incredible life changing appointment with Serge. I can image how debilitating the migraines were for you. How important it is to find out the root cause and heal that rather than just trying to fix them.

  • Reply Christine Hogan August 8, 2016 at 7:19 pm

    Hi Francene – there were a group of words that stood out for me and provided the key to healing. ‘I could see that I had played a part in the migraines……….’ In this moment, as it would be with any of us, it brought a release and shift from choosing to be a victim in life to true empowerment. How often do we as a society hand over our lives to unseen forces and the direction of others and then blame everyone else for the outcome? The world we live in, the life we live, the health we experience are all of our choosing. This article is evidence of how claiming our role and right to choose can change everything.

  • Reply Sarah Karam August 10, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    Miracle is the only word that springs to mind. I am so touched that you have a new lease on life, it’s the best gift you can receive to truly heal something that you have carried for that long, what a blessing.

  • Reply Andrew Mooney August 17, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    What you present here is huge for medicine. There is a general irresponsibility that we all are a part of that when something goes wrong with our bodies, we want medicine to take it away, without any accountability on our part. What I have come to understand for myself is that there is a big difference between relief and healing. The difference is taking responsibility for the way we are living, for how we live is our best medicine.

  • Reply Vicky Cooke October 21, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    This is so true ‘Serge Benhayon does not offer a ‘cure’, but the understanding of the underlying energetic cause of the circumstances that an individual finds himself or herself.’ We need to know and understand the underlying energetic cause for all illnesses and dis-ease only then can we truly start to heal if we are willing to take responsibility for how we live. With what you share here we can see ‘health’ isn’t just about diet or exercise but ill beliefs, ideals, patterns and emotions we are living and holding onto.

  • Reply Leigh Matson November 9, 2016 at 3:39 am

    Taking responsibility for our part in the cause for why we end up in the states of health we find ourselves in is one of the biggest supports to Humanity that Serge Benhayon has shared. This factor alone is being proven again and again by the student body and science. That to support our medical systems we need to care for ourselves deeply so. So many, if not all of our ailments, come from our choices and Serge supports us to approach that responsibility with endless patience and strength.

  • Reply Stephanie Stevenson November 12, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    From personal experience of attending Universal Medicine presentations, Serge Benhayon has never said he offers a cure for anything. What he does offer, is the opportunity to understand the root cause of all disease and illness, by knowing that the true cause is always energetic, as we are energy first and foremost.

    ‘Everything is because of energy’ by the daily choices of the QUALITY of the energy we choose to live in – that which is the truth of love or the lesser form of love.
    “Serge Benhayon does not offer a ‘cure’, but the understanding of the underlying energetic cause of the circumstances that an individual finds himself or herself.”

    What a powerful realisation and understanding of how the quality of energy behind your migraines was something that was binding you to a self-made prison of limitation simply from living in reaction. “Now I realise how much the migraines were keeping me away from myself as I was in constant reaction to the pain”.

  • Reply Bina Pattel November 21, 2016 at 11:57 pm

    It is difficult to even comprehend what it must be like to have such a chronic headache, that you end up in hospital on a drip of painkillers, to simply shut down your brain activity. Thank you for sharing your story and confirming how Serge Benhayon not only gave you the answer but supported you with the healing modalities that he teaches. This man has the answers and it is high time we pay attention to what he has to say. When you read all the places and people you visited and yet no one could ‘cure’ or get to the root cause of why you got the migraines in the first place and in you not giving up, you eventually found Serge Benhayon. That in itself speaks volumes.

    • Reply Jonathan Stewart January 5, 2017 at 3:33 pm

      So true Bina, Serge Benhayon certainly does have the answers and how different the world will be when what he presents is generally accepted. It will take some time for that to occur but it will eventually happen as what he presents Truth, plain and simple.

  • Reply Stephanie Stevenson November 25, 2016 at 4:40 pm

    To bring another angle to understanding that disease and illness all have an energetic cause that can be addressed in making different choices in our lifestyle, thoughts that come through us and even how we move, True Medicine is the coming together of the Esoteric (innermost) energetic philosophy, coupled with the physical use of Western Medicine and procedures when required.
    “Serge offered that resentment and frustration was behind the migraines”.

  • Reply Jonathan Stewart November 27, 2016 at 5:20 pm

    Identifying the energetic root cause for something and then addressing it with Esoteric and Western Medicine, where necessary, is the greatest form of medicine there is.

    “What was really fabulous was that I no longer felt that I was placing myself on a practitioner’s table with the mindset to ‘fix me’. I could see that I had played a part in the migraines and now this provided me with confidence that the migraines could be reduced. ” This is true healing – realising that how we are is a result of how we have been choosing to live and that is for us to take responsibility for our own healing with the aid of the appropriate support it whatever form that may take.

    “The potential for true healing, possible as a result of accurately dealing with the underlying energetic root cause of any ailment and illness, is profound beyond measure.” This is so true and when this is generally accepted, not only within the medical profession but within society in general, it will be a paradigm shift on a par with the acceptance that the world is round and not flat.

  • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh November 29, 2016 at 5:31 pm

    I love how the modalities offered and taught by Serge Benhayon are all deeply caring and honouring, and all about supporting us to heal what gets in the way of deeply appreciating ourself, living our full expression and understanding our responsibility in life. I recall when I was offering complementary treatments before coming across Universal Medicine, I portrayed a persona of “I know better” & “fixing my clients”, as did many other practitioners & specialists. None of that with Serge Benhayon & Universal Medicine trained practitioners – simply offering support as equals for us to heal, deepen our awareness and expand our responsibility in life – freedom and empowerment.

  • Reply Shevon Simon December 12, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    No-one else has presented on the fact that “Everything is Energy” and further expanded this by saying that “then everything is because of energy” apart from Serge Benhayon. Francene’s story is a classic example of the healing the readings and works of Serge Benhayon bring to people through his understanding of energy and the energetic root cause of illness and disease. Without this support Francene may have never healed and understood the root cause and her part in the creation of this disease. I know a number of people who live a life of taking days off work, going to the doctors and living off painkillers due to migraines. This story is a clear example that there is another way and that we can heal.

  • Reply Monica Gillooly January 1, 2017 at 9:45 am

    I love how the understanding you gained from your sessions with Serge Benhayon empowered you Francene, and how with this you could approach things differently. When we approach another with a ‘fix me’ or ‘fix it’ mentality, we rob ourselves of our own part and the power we can have to make changes which can support us alongside the help we get from other, medical and alternative practitioners – what you offer here in your story is the fuller picture.

  • Reply James Nicholson January 11, 2017 at 5:20 pm

    Francene thank you for sharing your story and experience, So often we are told to and have to simply live with ailments etc. but seldom are we actually told and thus given the choice to take responsibility for what has happened to us because of the way we have been living. By taking responsibility for our lives we can then make different more loving and supportive choices and then the ill consequences are no longer there. Otherwise it is as if we think we can keep repeating the same thing and expect a different outcome – it is crazy when we look at it like that.

  • Reply Matts Josefsson January 15, 2017 at 5:33 am

    What Serge Benhayon knows about how the body actually works is quite remarkable and should be studied by science. Considering how much it costs for countries with people being ill it would be a healthy investment looking into it.

    When I read these testimonials my thinking goes that doctors would do everything to get their hands on how Serge works. I would guess that so many people come to their doctor wanting them to fix the problem or at least give them an explanation of what is going on in their bodies.

  • Reply Rowena Stewart January 22, 2017 at 4:25 pm

    Thank you so much for your article Francene , there must be millions of people who suffer from migraines yet like you and me, are led to believe there is no other solution to them other than to resign ourselves to this crippling condition. I too tried many different therapies to get rid of them. What is so poignant in your article here is that is only took two sessions with Serge Benhayon to begin the turn the situation around, because the real resolution lies within us, not in someone else’s hands. Serge Benhayon always hands the power of healing back to us, immediately and without question. (Whether we are prepared to take it or not is another matter.) These days if the sizzling light show begins, (which is rare) then it is definitely time to take stock and examine where my frustrations lie. Thankfully though, years of studying with Universal Medicine and applying these ancient, wise teachings to my life have taken the crippling sting out of them and I can appreciate them for the real message they are – stop, take stock, let go and chill out.

  • Reply Mary Adler January 29, 2017 at 3:46 pm

    Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine offer an understanding of the ‘Why?’ and the underlying root cause of our issues and in that we can take responsibility for observing and changing our way of living to support the work of conventional medicine.

    When we understand the underlying cause of a problem it gives us the tools to make the necessary changes. Serge Benhayon is a master of feeling into the energy that is underlying all our ills.

    Oh, to get to the root cause of ill health, it seems like this is the missing link in our current medicine, where we look to fix. Yet from experience, when we read the reason why we get ill it empowers us in the healing process. In fact in the case of some conditions acknowledging the ill behaviour can in itself cause an energetic shift in our body. This can be dismissed as not possible, but perhaps what we ought to admit is that we as a human race haven’t yet fully grasped the energetic outplays that are beyond our current logical reasoning.

    Francene, I loved how you claimed your part in the illness that was affecting you and it feels amazing and so empowering to know we have a place in all illness. The simple choice to reflect, observe and bring into our lives an understanding of how we make choices that setup the conditions where our body has to bring us to a ‘stop’ is deeply appreciated. Thank you so much for sharing and for expanding our awareness around the choices we make which affect the level of health we experience and not stopping to accept that ‘this is how it is for my family’.

  • Reply Jonathan Stewart April 26, 2017 at 2:46 pm

    “What was really fabulous was that I no longer felt that I was placing myself on a practitioner’s table with the mindset to ‘fix me’. ” This approach that the practitioner is there to support the client in their healing rather than ‘fixing’ the problem is a fundamental principle and hallmark of all Esoteric Practitioners trained by Serge Benhayon.

    I cannot imagine any one suffering with migraines to such an extent that they have to be hospitalised, or indeed suffer for so long without finding a suitable painkiller or method of management. But it does make sense that frustration and resentment could be the underlying cause of the headaches, and actually sheds some light on my own mother’s migraines whilst we were growing up.

  • Reply Elizabeth Dolan May 4, 2017 at 3:51 am

    Headaches, and in particular migraines, are so debilitating so it must be incredible for you to not have them any more. Thanks to the work of Serge Benhayon the root cause of yet another illness is understood and can be healed. This supports everyone, including our workplaces as when we experience illness we need to have time off work, which affects productivity. The work of Serge Benhayon, that is living a life of responsibility, is saving the individual, their workplaces and governments a lot of money.

  • Reply Leigh Matson May 6, 2017 at 8:33 pm

    Until I come to an energetic understanding of a situation, health condition I remain stuck in my relationship to what is before me. This stuckness builds a tension within me that leads to more ill health or ill situations. As energy is never static as soon as I understand the energy the relationship, the situation and/or the health condition also shifts and clears.

  • Reply Monica Gillooly May 16, 2017 at 3:49 am

    What a truly amazing transformation, Francene, and to hear how you experienced a level of understanding in your sessions with Serge Benhayon, which you then took out and applied into life, and how that utterly transformed your life it so inspiring. It shows how much we can play a part and how with the right support we can find our way.

  • Reply Karin Barea May 25, 2017 at 6:54 am

    This is amazing to read – from handing over your power to practitioners to fix you to realising connection with one’s body holds all the keys. I know when I am in reaction that’s when I get ill so bringing myself back through noticing where I’m at and observation is a beautiful blessing I can bring.

      I am finding that too, it’s the reaction and how we relate to the illness that makes us ill and not the state of health/condition we find ourselves with. Reacting doesn’t allow us the space to care for our bodies in order for it to heal as it is completely capable of if supported.

  • Reply Natallija May 28, 2017 at 12:54 pm

    Getting to the root cause is what I love about any conversation with Serge Benhayon. There is no room for stories that lead us back to the cycle of despair, blame etc. Just the simplicity offered to let go of the way we are living that is no truly supporting the body and how it actively and truly engages with a deep and resonant quality. Thank you Francene for sharing that there is not ‘fix it’ button or method but the responsibility of the individual to bring out what is not supporting or loving.

  • Reply Sarah Flenley June 1, 2017 at 4:34 am

    “I could see that I had played a part in the migraines and now this provided me with confidence that the migraines could be reduced.” This is one of the many gems that are in presentations by Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and its practitioners – that we all play a part in everything. It puts a halt on the ‘blame game’ and encourages us to look at what our part is in a situation, and from there start healing it, or nominating it and/or letting it go. From there miracles can happen as your testimony clearly shows.

  • Reply Leigh Strack June 4, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    It is so very powerful when we realise that we have played a part in any circumstance that we may find ourselves, as in this moment we realise that we also play a part in that situation changing, and the power is again ours to claim and make the changes needed, as situations, illnesses etc can only fully heal when we bring to them the humbleness of owing it not as an act of God, but as a choice we made.

  • Reply Samantha June 5, 2017 at 3:04 pm

    Serge Benhayon will never offer a quick fix for in truth that would not be true healing, instead he offers us the chance to see how we created our illness and discomforts, this is far more empowering as it allows us to really learn from our mistakes and to move on and evolve.

  • Reply leigh matson June 25, 2017 at 1:58 pm

    Whenever I have approached Serge Benhayon with a health question he’s always provided an energetic understanding with a healthy dose of self-responsibility to go with it. This has been very supportive and empowering me to take my health back into my hands rather than hoping someone will fix it for me, I’d be waiting a very long time if I continued in that way.

  • Reply Alison Valentine July 6, 2017 at 3:52 pm

    It is amazing how a couple of words such as resentment and frustration from Serge Benhayon give you an understanding of your intense migraines that were affecting your life and those around you. These words gave you the key to unlock the momentum you were in and start the healing. We can never underestimate the power of words when said in truth and absolute love.

  • Reply Alison Valentine July 16, 2017 at 1:16 am

    To be able to unlock the cause of why you were getting migraines is an amazing gift, so many people suffer for migraines throughout their life and never get to the bottom of why they have them even with the best medical supervision.

  • Reply Vicky Cooke August 3, 2017 at 2:50 pm

    Having migraines for that long must have been a complete nightmare for you. I could really feel in your writing that when you had an appointment with Serge Benhayon you were both there together to heal this equally, meaning you did not have the ‘fix me’ attitude and I know from knowing Serge that he would have held the space in the room for you to be equal in your own healing and from it to come from you. It just goes to show when we know the true cause of something and are willing to heal this how it does, if the Soul permits, heal.

  • Reply Kehinde James August 11, 2017 at 2:48 pm

    To be migraine free and drug free after so many years of illness is an extra-ordinary achievement. This is another powerful example of the inter-relationship between every part of the human body: disharmony in one part, always a reflection of something mis-aligned or unresolved somewhere else. Universal medicine is whole body medicine with client actively participating in their own return to health and balance, if they choose to do so.

  • Reply Elodie Darwish August 29, 2017 at 5:19 am

    And the migraines have disappeared without the need for drugs or even natural remedies. Incredible! I know you are not the only person who has supported themselves with alleviating ailments through bringing more awareness to their every day and taking responsibility for their actions and what they take on, or hold on to. It’s really very inspiring!

  • Reply Simon Williams August 29, 2017 at 2:11 pm

    What Serge Benhayon offers is on the one hand nothing short of miraculous, and yet on the other he makes it very plain and everyday… an unassuming, slightly understated observation that I always walk away with ‘of course’ when the penny drops and I understand what is going on. To do this with lifetime illnesses of such severity… its nothing short of an everyday miracle.

    • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh October 10, 2017 at 8:05 am

      This is so true Simon. I love the way Serge Benhayon supports you to gain the most amazing life-changing insights, and start to heal and turn issues round as simply a normal everyday unfolding.

  • Reply Patricia Darwish August 29, 2017 at 2:28 pm

    Yes Elodie, “taking responsibility for my actions and what I took on, and held on to” was the cure for my migraines. Becoming aware that resentment was the root cause of my ailment over so many years has freed me of migraines. None of the treatment offered to me helped. Living in conscious presence at every moment is the key and the true path to healing.

    I recently found out how at work there are a lot of women who are having headaches, some almost all of the time and that they don’t really know anything to do with it. I was the same in the past, knowing that it is about frustration and resentment really makes a difference.

    • Reply Lucy Dahill November 30, 2017 at 4:46 am

      Me too Lieke. I suffered very badly from them and no-one on the outside would have said I was resentful or bitter because I am innately a very joyful person, but underneath I was so frustrated, irritated and clearly resentful and bitter that this joy was not reflected by society. Rather, the reflection I saw was one of war, greed, selfishness, corruption – the list goes on! Since dealing with my own issues, I have found so many pockets of joy and people who reflect that to me in all sorts of areas of my life – and no more migraines!!

  • Reply Ingrid Ward September 18, 2017 at 4:35 pm

    Thank you Francene for sharing yet another amazing story of someone who was resigned to live with the debilitating effects of pain and discomfort only to now be pain free, feeling wonderful and enjoying life to the full. There are so many accounts like this of people who have attended healing sessions and workshops with Serge Benhayon who have slowly begun to heal longstanding conditions in their bodies, often with the most necessary and encouraged support of Western Medicine. As one who also has a similar amazing healing story to tell it shows so clearly that illness, disease and pain have a starting point within the body and to offer the body the chance to heal itself the most self-loving choice we can make.

  • Reply fiona lotherington September 22, 2017 at 6:05 am

    As a nurse, it made so much sense when I came to Universal Medicine and it was shared that there is an energetic root cause to illness and disease. Working with patients I could see similar patterns amongst clients with certain conditions which were never explained by medicine. Our functional understanding of illness just doesn’t go deep enough and allows us to not take responsibility for whatever illness we have running in our bodies.

  • Reply Elodie Darwish October 1, 2017 at 7:58 am

    “I could see that I had played a part in the migraines and now this provided me with confidence that the migraines could be reduced.” Once we accept that we are part of what is happening, and can see our role in it, it naturally gives us the confidence to work on it and start to heal.

  • Reply Jill Steiner October 12, 2017 at 4:53 am

    An amazing story Francene thank you for sharing, I remember having migraines when I was around thirteen years of age, I would often cry myself to sleep and when I awoke they would be gone, this lasted only a few years for me but I can understand how debilitating it can be having them for so many years. Amazing the healing that came to you when you understood the energetic root cause of your ailment and took responsibility for your part in it.

  • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh October 12, 2017 at 8:02 am

    Our illness, disease and other issues in life do not just randomly happen. It is very empowering to learn how our own choices and responses have led to the predicaments we may be facing and to gain an understanding about how we could start to turn things round.

  • Reply fiona lotherington October 13, 2017 at 3:10 pm

    I grew up with a female family member having serious migraines and they certainly seemed to be debilitating. Unfortunately, at this time I was not aware that everything is energy and so did not relate it to an emotional cause. However looking back, I can agree that resentment played a big part in causing the migraines.

  • Reply Lucy Duffy October 14, 2017 at 5:34 pm

    “I no longer felt that I was placing myself on a practitioner’s table with the mindset to ‘fix me’. I could see that I had played a part in the migraines and now this provided me with confidence that the migraines could be reduced. ” This is such a freeing way to look at illness and disease. By understanding that it was created by ourselves in the choices we have made, it removes the feeling of helplessness and despair that so often accompanies any chronic or acute condition. For in that understanding we realise that if it is our choices that got us into this mess it’s our choices that will get us out.

  • Reply Lucy Dahill October 17, 2017 at 3:52 am

    Isn’t it interesting, medicine cannot work in isolation. We need to bring an energetic understanding to illness and disease so we can understand how to bring a more responsible body to the treatments offered by medical professionals.

  • Reply Gregory Barnes October 18, 2017 at 8:27 pm

  • Reply Sylvia October 20, 2017 at 7:06 am

    To onlock the root course of the illness is such a powerfull part of the healing.
    I also learned and experienced that this way is the only way for true healing.
    Yes, we sometimes can need western medicine for the ill condition of the body but if we work together with our body and see the reason why we get ill we found our way to truly heal.
    The teachings of Serge and the healing modalities offered are deeply supporting.

  • Reply Ingrid Ward November 2, 2017 at 4:52 pm

    Another inspirational example of the healing that is possible, even for a very long-term condition, when we are able to discover the root cause of the issue. Conventional medicine is amazing but it simply offers a cure, meaning that the issue may arise again as what is behind it has gone untreated. With the wisdom presented by Serge Benhayon I too have been able to “unlock the root cause” of several very long term and painful conditions, conditions that I had expected to live with for the rest of my life, and as a result they are finally healed.

  • Reply Melinda Knights November 3, 2017 at 7:47 pm

    Francene thank you for sharing your story, migraines are so debilitating so for you to actually be free of them now due to the support of Esoteric Medicine via Serge is fantastic. And the understanding here of how emotion has an effect on the body is also very powerful, the body is showing us that emotion actually doesn’t belong, that it disrupts the harmony of the body and can lead to pain, illness and disease. What Serge simply provided was the missing element, then healing could occur by you making the changes

  • Reply Rachel Murtagh November 4, 2017 at 6:02 pm

    This is an amazing testimony to really getting underneath an illness by understanding its causal link, such as frustration in this case. Whilst being supported by medical practitioners, it then becomes much easier to be in charge of our own healing and choose different behaviours and ways of being that lead up to the illness in the first place. What a gift to have been given the understanding by Serge Benhayon.

  • Reply Willem Plandsoen November 15, 2017 at 1:13 am

    So many people seek relief from pains, by going out there looking for a fix. The fact that we are part of the root cause of any disease is perhaps a big step to take, but if we do, the only genuine way to heal it.

  • Reply Michael Goodhart November 21, 2017 at 12:41 pm

    Knowing many people who suffer from intense migraines and how debilitating they can be, I can understand why you tried so many different approaches to cure them Francene. But as Serge Benhayon has taught so accurately, there is a huge difference between a cure (or a fix) and a healing, and understanding that the migraines come from a foundation of frustration and resentment obviously was the underlying cause which lead to the deeper healing you experienced. The other aspect of this story that I found interesting is how many times we will go to all kinds of different specialist to find a solution to a medical problem and they will many times have a method to deal with the illness or disease, but never really offer that type of foundational cause for it as Serge Benhayon has done countless times for thousands of people. When the methods of modern allopathic medicine and Universal Medicine combine in harmony we will have one powerful approach to true healing in the future.

  • Reply Heather Pope November 22, 2017 at 8:43 am

    The understanding that at the root cause of illness there is disharmony within the body is something that complements our medical systems in an as yet untold way. The wisdom of Serge Benhayon in this area is unprecedented and something of great value to the world.

    Wow a huge and powerful sharing this is, which further shows the power and beauty that is offered to us by Universal Medicine. The modalities are very powerful and have supported many people to change their lives and heal things that have empowered them to connect to who they truly are. But thereafter we are offered a choice to continue to deepen who we truly are.

  • Reply Alison Valentine November 29, 2017 at 6:04 pm

    When we seek to be fixed we never really get to the bottom of why we have an illness, or pain in the body. I know searching for a cure for my back pain I wanted to be ‘fixed’ so I could get back to doing what I always do, but the back pain was slowing me down or making things very difficult. I didn’t want to consider that the whole way I was living was the cause of my pain. Once I started listen to my body with the support of Serge Benhayon and the many ethically trained Esoteric Practitioners I got to feel that the way I was living and disregarding my body had a huge impact on my body. now if I get back pain I immediately take responsibility for it and track back to the cause, and seek support if needed, this is a very different approach than wanting to be ‘fixed’.

  • Reply Lucy Dahill November 30, 2017 at 4:43 am

    You have had a healing that you are 100% part of – that is very cool! I love the fact that when Serge explained why the migraines were there are you were able to see and understand more about your history and choices you were then able to build a different environment around yourself which would slowly support you to rebuild your body without the resentment and bitterness as part of that ‘normal’.

    Migraines are so debilitating, something that I’ve lived with a lot over the years. Participating in the workshops presented by Serge Benhayon and discovering re-connecting to me by being present in my body offered a great shift to the point they stopped. I’ll still get a headache from time to time but know I’m fully aware and responsible for the fact that my body is telling me that something has triggered me to let go of my connection to me and wind up extra mental activity to deal with something.

    A truly remarkable turnaround Francene that really drives home the truth for us that no one can heal us, we heal ourselves by virtue of taking responsibility for the energetic root cause of the problem at hand. A true ‘healer’ is one that knows and lives by such truth and can therefore get themselves out of the way, so as to act as a catalyst in our healing process.

    What Serge Benhayon offers is freedom. It is the all to end the all of .. suffering, struggle, worry, contraction, indulgence etc. “The potential for true healing, possible as a result of accurately dealing with the underlying energetic root cause of any ailment and illness, is profound beyond measure.” Each of us through the true healing are a miracle upon miracle – we begin to walk with ourselves again growing more and more into acceptance that we are ok, more than ok. Serge’s wisdom comes from the power of connection through his divinely body “the vehicle of expression”. A livingness developed that supports another to also heal as it is taught under the auspice of the Ageless Wisdom.

Coming to Universal Medicine love and understanding were there to heal my resentment and frustration without blaming myself or anybody else and the Gentle Breath Meditation assisted me to stay present in my body and to stop the thinking and overthinking I was used to do always to feel secure and to not make any mistakes.
