Judith McIntyre: An Intimate Interview on Terminal Cancer & Serge Benhayon

June 19, 2017

In May 2014, Judith McIntyre was in the final stages of terminal breast cancer. In this interview, filmed four weeks before her passing, Judith shared her extraordinary unfoldment with understanding the ‘why’ of her diagnosis. What is most astounding, however, is Judith’s acceptance and the deep joy she chose to live to her very last breath.

Engaging a model of palliative care pioneered by Serge Benhayon, the founder and director of Universal Medicine, Judith was supported by a team of volunteers and palliative care experts. This gave her the dignity and grace to enjoy her last days in the nurturing environment of her own home.

In this intimate and personal account of the dying process, Judith shared her revelations and insights about life and death, the support offered by Serge and effortlessly showed that we are far more than a mere physical body. Her infectious appreciation for what life offers, at every stage, stands as an everlasting testament to what is possible when we make life about love and truth.

As a well spent day brings happy sleep,

so a life well spent brings happy death.

Leonardo Da Vinci

The first diagnosis was in June 2011 – breast cancer… yeah… and initially they thought, ‘Oh that’s fine, we’ll just remove the lump,’ but they went back and they said, ‘We didn’t get it all. We’ll have to do a second surgery’ and then they came back and said, ‘We’re going to have to take the breast.’

So… some people thought: that’s really hard, three surgeries, but for me it gave me time to accept… what was happening.

20th May 2014

4 weeks before Judith passed away

I’m Judith McIntyre. I’m 66 years old and I live in Goonellabah.

An interview with Judith McIntyre

I was very frightened. In the early period of knowing, I was so scared, my legs would dance off the bed at night. I was shaking… Yeah, I was very scared. I did not want to lose my breast. At all.

I began to see Serge Benhayon. I met him at the Writer’s Festival in Byron. Just a flukey thing. I heard a bit about him and… sort of crawled out of bed one day… and went to hear him speak. I got in the tent and someone got up because it was full and there was a seat and he began to talk about breast cancer which wasn’t his topic… there was an incredible flow.

After the talk, he turned around just as I went up to the front… I spoke to him; he said, “What is your truth? Speak your truth. Speak what’s happening.”

So, I just opened my mouth and said, “I’ve got breast cancer.”

And he said, “You need deep self-nurturing.”

I didn’t know what that meant, but I knew I wanted to know… and because I wasn’t in remission, he said he’d see me.

And when I went to see him, from the very first session, my fear levels just went down like that… and I told him I didn’t want to lose my breast.

I’m always optimistic. I thought, “I’m not going to have to lose my breast.” 

And he said to me, “The soul doesn’t need the breast”… and it just opened up my perspective. I was only thinking of my loss… but I thought, “At least I’ve got my life.”

How did you begin to self-nurture?

Just recognising all the ways I wasn’t loving to myself… I thought I was, you know, organic food and all this sort of thing. It was all outside; it wasn’t my relationship to me – that’s what I developed. And I first learned that with chakra-puncture that Serge gave me, where I dropped into such a place of stillness and depth in myself… I thought, “OK… this is where I want to come from.”

I practised the gentle breath meditation… and learned how to be with me and I used the chakra-puncture depths when I went into chemo, which I also didn’t want; I didn’t want any of the treatments. Every treatment that came up they suggested, (I thought) “I don’t want to do that.” Each time Serge supported me to follow through with the medical treatments; and he said, “In the chemo, just rest deeply’ and so I did and I had no problem – I lost my hair and I was very tired – but no vomiting, no problems.

Understanding illness and disease

I’ve learned a great deal about how disease is actually a form of healing.

I had a second diagnosis in September 2013 and my cancer had metastasised very quickly. It was in my spine, and I suddenly had much less time. And this time, because of the understanding I had that I had created the disease by all my self-neglect, my choices, I had time to… working with the teachings of Universal Medicine, to really… I just changed everything in my life. Everything. Relationships, the way I moved, the way I walked, the way I was in my body and my life was so beautiful; even though there was a lot going on.

With the second diagnosis, when the doctor told me… I just felt lovely. It was a complete contrast from the first.

I just thought, ‘OK. This is what’s happening now… ’ and the doctor said to me, ‘Sometimes the doctor learns from the patients.’

It was not too long later… it was April 2014, I got the third diagnosis. It’s spread to organs, and I’ve got very little time… and the truth is I feel excited… I’ve gone from terror, to a lovely acceptance, to, “OK, now’s the big adventure.”

I told a friend who worked in palliative care and she said, “That’s weird. Nobody feels like that. Most people feel so defeated.”

But I have such a different perspective. I feel like I could have died without learning what was really happening, what life’s really about, and I didn’t miss it… just in time!

The blessing of true support

The most special friendship for me has been with Ingrid, who, from the first moment, (she came to drive me to the clinic for sessions because I needed a lift,) and then she wanted to care for me, and so she moved in with me for a while and we decided we wanted to buy a house together, but because of my illness, I eventually said, ‘I don’t want any ownership responsibilities anymore,’ and Ingrid was happy to buy the house herself and she sets me up in the best room and just takes beautiful care of me… I have never, ever had so much love in my life as I’ve had in the last few years. On every level… so much joy.

Re-discovering the teachings of Universal Medicine

Actually what was most frightening for me with the first diagnosis was not dying, but I felt I’d wasted my time: 30 years of disciplined meditation practice, studying ancient scriptures, trying to find wisdom and truth and a connection to God, and when it came down to it, with the diagnosis, I was as lost as anybody.

And I thought, “I know nothing… know absolutely nothing. What have I done with my life?”

And once I found the teachings of Universal Medicine, I thought, “Oh. This is it. It’s all so simple.” Not all this complexity about enlightenment and Sanskrit chanting, all this stuff… just connecting with yourself. And the reward for it is amazing. The ease that life starts to take on as you really care for yourself first, which I had never done, was so precious.

The ripple effect on family and friends

Amazing things are happening. My ex-husband’s family have a long history of fear of death and denial, and my sister in law came to visit me just a few days ago. She told me more about people she’s seen dying of cancer. Everyone had had a terrible time. They can’t face it. They’re grasping something new, raw food or something… right to the end. Never accepting. And she saw the distress for everyone left behind, and the sorrow of the person dying in that kind of torment and she’s been watching me and she keeps observing “no pain, no fear…”

Just before she left she said, “You have taught me so much.” And then she sent me a text this morning and it said, ‘This visit with you was the turning point for me.’… and that means so much, because I’ve been in that family for 40 years… and I know she’s going to go back and she’s going to start to show the family there’s another way.

Things like that happen to me all the time. It’s just another exquisitely beautiful gift for me. It’s actually the most amazing adventure, moment to moment. Of course, a lot of my moments I’m kind of like this (Judith lays back her head on the pillow as if she’s unable to move). But, yeah…

The dying process

This body is so tired. So worn out. And I know I keep going.

That’s another interesting thing, because I already had memories of past lives before my diagnosis. I had no question in my mind about reincarnation. It didn’t help… it didn’t help, because I did not have the truth. I did not have the true philosophy, which is so simple that anyone can understand it. And of course, I mean, God would be simple. He wouldn’t make it hard for us. That’s what we people do.

Yeah… I’m really looking forward to it. I do want to write a little bit more if I can. So when I have energy I sit up and write blogs, and that’s my joy too, because all my life I’ve been trying to write and it’s never worked very well. For other people, you know, jobs… but not my own writing. I couldn’t find my voice. Now I‘ve found it. And here I am… you know, I can hardly brush my teeth without help, and I’m writing. This is this another amazing thing that’s happened… you know like, ‘Here you go, you can have this.’

How to have fun while dying

I had this idea to write a blog called How to Have Fun While Dying. One of the ways is that I decided to get a cardboard coffin and Rosie, a friend of mine and her nine-year-old daughter are going to paint it for me. And I have other gorgeous indulgences, like, I bought all these expensive French creams and people put them on me, and I just lie here and smell them.

There’s an amazing amount of pleasure and joy being in this bed… and you’d think, ‘That’s a pretty miserable place to be, about to die, can’t even get out of bed without help…’

No… it’s not actually what I am experiencing.

I mean it’s true, I need help to get out of bed, but the most beautiful things are happening… So much love just blooms around me… It’s a very wonderful time.

I think that people don’t realise… if you can be with each moment, let it unfold, every moment has got something to offer. And I don’t mind letting go. I loved my wheelie walker when I could still walk; now I love my wheelchair because I can’t walk. I had to give up my queen size bed; now I love my hospital bed… I’m just with it. I’m just with each thing as it happens and… it’s fine.

Conclusion

I’ve done a lot of work… a lot of work, to… make this time… have a lot of space in it… because I’m not dragging any baggage… and I love the clarity that I have and that I don’t feel any issues with anyone and that allows me to really enjoy each moment.

I just had such a complicated way of living before, so many entanglements, so yeah, I feel so well in myself. So well. More than ever before.

There’s been a growing gap over those three diagnoses. The first one, you know, I was a mess emotionally and my body was. My second one, I had already begun to have a sense of myself, that even though the body was going to go soon, I felt lovely. And this third time, it’s just enormous the gap between the feeling that, I’ll die very soon; the body will die and I feel so alive and clear and well.

The Esoteric Philosophy of Re-incarnation presents the fact that it is the energetic quality we pass over in that we will return to in our next life.

Judith McIntyre joy-fully passed over on the 17th June 2014.

As you meet what comes before you with what is within you,

you develop an awareness that what is before you was sent to bring out what is

within you. ~ Serge Benhayon

Upon the end of each life, death provides for a new beginning, an inauguration of a yet greater you. This repeats over and over until such time that each of your births is to assist all others to attain the same enthronement.   ~ Serge Benhayon

    What a fabulously inspiring interview. Thank you for offering it in writing as well as the delightful video. The joy, vitality and wisdom with which Judith McIntyre shares about her experiences of preparing to die offers profound insights. Revelations not just about dying, but also about how we could be choosing to live life.

  • Reply vanessa mchardy June 19, 2017 at 4:44 pm

    So deeply inspired by Judith, there is so much to take in from what she shares in this video and all her writings, it is immensely humbling to see life lived this way in the face of death with our current take on what death is experienced as, but Judith lives and dies in a way that is so true and joyful it is magnificent and simple! It is like she said simple – God would be simple ! I love that.

      I agree Vanessa deeply inspiring and immensely humbling .. Judith looks far more healthier and joy-full than most of us who haven’t got a terminal illness! There is soooo much for us to learn from here. I am so glad this was documented.

  • Reply Monica Gillooly June 19, 2017 at 5:02 pm

    Wow, to feel the deep level of love, acceptance and joy in Judith before her passing is awe inspiring – it reminds me no matter how things look on the outside, it’s the quality inside that is it, and I can feel how Judith absolutely nurtured that quality, and the results speak for themselves. Such love, deeply embraced and offered to all. Thank you for sharing this, it’s so important to understand and know that every single moment counts to the last breath and that no matter our circumstances it can be with joy.

    • Reply Rowena Stewart November 15, 2017 at 3:31 pm

      Agreed Monica. What a show stopping example this is to the world of how we can be dying but still connect to the most amazing love within us and what our true responsibility is in this world, to remain connected to this love to our very last breath. The depth of care from Serge Benhayon and a remarkable team of people demonstrates just how much can be achieved when we all work with this same intention, to keep love present and alive within us in all we do.

  • Reply Nicola Lessing June 19, 2017 at 5:03 pm

    Thank you for sharing this. I visited Judith a couple of time close to her passing and I can confirm that she was overflowing with Joy. The way Judith handled her final weeks and days was incredibly inspiring, glorious and deeply touching. It has left a last impression on me.

      I completely agree with you Nicola. Although I did not personally see the whole team in action, just reading about the exquisite way the whole team came together with such love, care, togetherness, responsibility and honouring of one another is inspiring beyond words. It is a perfect example whether in palliative care or in fact any other area of society.

We have it all at our finger tips and are so blessed. Thank you for sharing this interview.

    So much joy in this transcript, and so much joy in the sharing of an end of life. It is an absolute miracle as so different to what many people experience with death.

    I was struck by much but particularly this line today – “I practised the gentle breath meditation… and learned how to be with me”.

    So simple yet so elusive for many of us – how to be with ourselves. The gentle breath meditation is an easy and simple way to start the process. http://www.unimedliving.com/meditation/free/meditation-for-beginners/introductory-gentle-breath-meditation.html

      That is a gorgeous observation Sarah. We tend to fret so much about life (and death) trying to make sense of things and control it all. But could the answer be as simple as just learning how to be connected and be with ourselves? Judith McIntyre’s interview and what you have picked up gives us a big clue.

  • Reply Vicky Cooke June 20, 2017 at 6:55 am

    I could watch this over and over again. This is such a remarkable and stunning interview and Judith McIntyre is a truly inspiring and remarkable woman. She has shared so much with humanity here and there is so much for us to learn through just listening and observing her in this interview. As are these words something to deeply ponder on ‘As you meet what comes before you with what is within you, you develop an awareness that what is before you was sent to bring out what is within you’. ~ Serge Benhayon. I felt exactly the same as Judith when I came to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine ‘this is it!’. ‘Of course God would be simple .. he wouldn’t make it hard for us .. that is what we people do.’ Judith McIntyre 💕

  • Reply Andrew Mooney June 20, 2017 at 2:24 pm

    What an amazing story and a complete turn-around from how people usually cope with cancer and dying. Fascinating that Judith states that she actually felt better and more at ease in herself when she got the third and most serious prognosis from her doctor! This shows that we are far more than a physical body and the health and wellness of her being was constantly developing and deepening and expanding even though her physical body was deteriorating.

    • Reply Natallija July 11, 2017 at 10:28 am

      This blog is a testament of the quality we can all pass over if we are willing to be open and loving to ourselves. For Judith to feel more at ease as the condition became more life threatening is something I have never heard of before. This inspiring piece of writing is a beautiful refection of letting go and allowing ourselves to deepen our quality of love is the greatest responsibility of dying.

  • Reply Leigh Matson June 20, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    I know from my body I have lived several life’s without being aware of the greater world surrounding me . I am only just waking up to the possibility that there is so much more to life that we are all missing out on. I have seen life as a flat line birth to death, but actually it is so much more than this our lives are spherical and encompasses everything so it cannot be linear.

I can feel in reading this how it is a message available for the whole world, not just anyone with disease or illness, but for any of us with any ounce of struggle in their lives. If I let any misery in I can refer to what is being shared and taught here in this blog and interview, how every moment is an offering and to spend any moment blaming another or a situation is a moment wasted and deviating from the truth on offer that we can learn and heal and grow in our every breath.

    This just blows me away, if we could all just realise that God makes everything simple and it is us that cause all the grief and stress and complexities,then we could face everything with the grace and acceptance that Judith was able too and treat each moment in life as a new Unfolding and learn what we need to learn so eventually we all won’t have to go through the passing over process again.

    • Reply Stephen Gammack July 22, 2017 at 12:04 pm

      I agree Kevin, what we learn is what we set up for the next life. We either circle in a misery or we deal with that which confronts us and see the magic in life and appreciate it. Judith’s ability to see the magic and appreciate the smallest things as others challenges were in front of her was amazing to listen to, you can’t help but feel appreciative in that moment.

    As I prepare to go for a relatively minor procedure in a hospital which none-the-less brings some anxiety, I sense how much more settled, accepting and responsible I am in my outlook than I was a few years ago. Huge appreciation for the immense inspiration offered by Serge Benhayon that infuses life with love, harmony, joy and a deep understanding of the vastness that we are an eternal part of.

    And what a blessing when people like Judith McIntyre choose to adopt such wisdom in their lives and share the ordinary extra-ordinariness of it all, so that the rest of us can be also inspired.

  • Reply Liane Mandalis June 30, 2017 at 6:32 am

    The sparkle, the joy, the love in Judith’s eyes that emanates through her whole body even though it is going through a process of discarding, helps to re-instil in us the truth of passing over – that there lives within us an eternal light and love that cannot ever be extinguished but only grows brighter through the permission we give it, ourselves, to shine. The incredible way Judith McIntyre embraced her ‘death’ is a total inspiration for us all and in this helps us to see and feel the absolute lies we have been fed about death and passing over. This is important in light of the truth that the energetic quality we pass over in is the same quality with which we will reincarnate in, for it helps us free ourselves from a vicious cycle of fear and misery we unwittingly incarcerate ourselves in within the greater cycle of life and all that it offers for us to re-turn to the truth of who we are.

      Beautifully expressed Liane. Judith McIntyre’s interview is a hugely inspiring gift offering us profound reflection and understanding of the truth of our expression.
      In fact it offers much to all areas of life and study. Illness and disease, health and healthcare, death and dying, social care and support, religion and existential questions, personal care and responsibility, ….. the list could go on and on.

  • Reply Stephen Gammack June 30, 2017 at 2:09 pm

    A key aspect of our re framing how we view life and how we take more responsibility for humanity is found in our relationship with death and passing away. It is ultimately an individual’s decision to what they make of reincarnation, but certainly there is worth in living to the last full of joy, regardless of ones beliefs. Coming back or not where is the point in being moribund, a talk I give to myself in these moments, as life is not just to be grasped at the end, but lived in full in every moment.

  • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh July 1, 2017 at 7:16 pm

    There are so many gems in this this interview. For example Judith’s share of a Serge Benhayon’s loving response to in their conversation about her upcoming mastectomy: ” ‘The soul doesn’t need the breast’… and it just opened up my perspective. I was only thinking of my loss… but I thought, ‘At least I’ve got my life.’ ” and then later offering us the sense that this ongoing ‘life’ is not something that is lost when we pass over.
    The change of perspective this invites in the way we relate to our issues in life, is huge.

  • Reply Jonathan Stewart July 2, 2017 at 5:46 am

    “The Esoteric Philosophy of Re-incarnation presents the fact that it is the energetic quality we pass over in that we will return to in our next life.” This is such an important teaching and to prepare for that is dependent upon how one has lived one’s life. Hence The Way of The Livingness is the way to live, as there is no better way to live and prepare for that passing.

    • Reply Vicky Cooke July 6, 2017 at 4:05 pm

      Yes and I feel this needs to be discussed and talked about far more than it currently is because if all of humanity had this aboslute awareness, that the energetic quality we live in this life is what we will come back to in our next, I am sure this will be a short, sharp wake-up call to many of us and that we do in fact not get away with anything!

  • Reply Carmel Reid July 2, 2017 at 8:19 pm

    Meeting Judith MacIntyre a few weeks before she died, was absolutely amazing – the joy radiating and emanating from her was palpable and so inspiring to have someone be so open about the way she embracing her life and her passing in the very near future. A lasting impression which continues to fill me with joy seeing this video several times over.

    I was touched and transfixed with the Serge Benhayon quote at the bottom of the page:
    “As you meet what comes before you with what is within you,
    you develop an awareness that what is before you was sent to bring out what is
    within you. ”
    My brain thought what? But while I just considered what was being offered and let it wash over me, I felt my being and awareness expanding in ways that I could not put my finger on. It is a profound quote. And the same is true with this interview.

    a day well spent brings happy sleep, and a life well spent brings a happy death, how magnificent Leonardo Da Vinci – and encapsuring how the answers to life really a re quite simple. A beautiful sharing by Judith, the truth she found was simply connecting with herself and bringing out what she had truly wanted to live into life – the rest just falls away.

    I keep going back to read this interview, ironically the reason I keep going back for another read is because the writing feels so alive, it makes me feel like everything is going to be okay, like I have nothing to fear.
    Judith was a angel and the fact that her name was dishonoured after her death was very exposing to those that choose to fight her glorious reflection.

    • Reply Natallija July 23, 2017 at 8:36 am

      Yes Sarah this interview turns the table on the fear and resentment many feel when it comes time pass over. This example is a gold find in our world today. The vitality in the eyes of a woman who was close to death is beyond words.

    This interview is a great reminder of what life and death is all about and the quotes by Leonardo di Vinci and Serge Benhayon sum it up beautifully at the end. Judith and the team behind the making of this interview have left something very precious for us all.

    There is a joy in the interview that is matched by the written word, and there is a lightness that is beautiful to feel. To passover with no fear and so much joy is a true blessing and a model for the future.

  • Reply Carmel Reid July 12, 2017 at 6:06 pm

    When Serge says “You need deep self-nurturing.” it is something we all need to pay attention to – so many of us do not take care of our bodies and end up sick. It is a very simple message.

  • Reply Stephen Gammack July 13, 2017 at 6:18 am

    Can there be another video out there like this, the complete ease and joy in this interview. Someone who has understood life and knows that this is not the end but the end of a cycle. That evolution is at play and that there is no room for misery as life is just too good, too rich, to incredible to be weighed down by trivial matters. So much to learn here, and so much to enjoy for us all in our daily lives whether we think it is a struggle or not.

  • Reply julie Matson July 14, 2017 at 4:11 pm

      Whenever we get a bit of a concern about some symptom, many of us go into a surfing the net moment looking up all there is to know about the issue.

    There is a very clear and evident joy in Judith McIntyre that is rarely if ever seen in someone so riddled with cancer. This testimony is worthy of immense study because it is not going to be a ‘one off’. Those who study with Serge Benhayon are redefining their relationships with their bodies, disease and true health, establishing a new normal for us all to step up to and Judith has claimed the ground ahead of us.

    Judith is such a deep inspiration. To watch this video within 4 weeks of her passing and to see such vitality and joy in her eyes is amazing.

    This interview has changed how I relate to death, dying and terminal illness. It need not be feared. And while I don’t doubt when the time comes (unless sudden) there may very well be reaction initially. But I now know theres another way to be with this part of life.

  • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh July 27, 2017 at 3:00 am

    There is something truly precious in the level of understanding and settlement with passing over offered through Serge Benhayon’s presentations. It is not that the presentations are actually about death or dying itself, yet I find that I am constantly supported in deepening my awareness and relationship with life, which has so far resulted in a reclaiming of empowerment, joy and responsibility in so many areas of life including my relationship with passing over.

  • Reply Stephanie Stevenson July 27, 2017 at 11:55 pm

    This model of palliative care from Serge Benhayon is something that every hospital, care home, respite centre etc could benefit from -to include both staff and patients.

      It is beautifully inspiration in that this shows there is another way for palliative care, no different to how Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine present that there is another way for all aspects of life.

  • Reply Stephen Gammack July 30, 2017 at 7:37 am

    There are so many things we do for ourselves that we consider loving, like the example Judith gives of organic food. But really if there is not an acceptance of self then all these other practices mean nothing really. Our health is built through our self care, and Judith is a great example of someone who came to deeply accept herself and her situation. It is remarkable and yet also a measure of how to pass over, available to us all that is joyful and filled with a knowing of what is next.

    • Reply Kehinde James August 4, 2017 at 1:18 pm

    What I feel reading today is an amazing joy and love and how no matter what is there we can be with it, Judith’s joy in the face of death is palpable, this is not words, but a deeply lived quality and it reminds me that each moment offers something if I’m wiling to surrender and see it, and this is something I can apply right now in my life. Thank you for sharing this amazing interview.

  • Reply Kehinde James August 4, 2017 at 1:14 pm

    Judith’s joyful acceptance of death is rare and an inspiration to many. I’ve known people diagnosed with cancer and as death approaches, wait for a miracle, unable to accept the inevitable.

    • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh August 10, 2017 at 12:39 am

      Very true Kehinde. Often people panic when they come across a terminal disease whether it is in relationship to themselves or another loved one, some get depressed and give up. Some go opposite to this and decide to ‘fight’ the situation and rush around trying to find a way of beating the disease, and hoping for a miracle. Yet here we are offered a great opportunity to deepen our understanding and acceptance of life as well as passing over, health and the nature of illness, and wow the example of Judith McIntyre shows what a joyful experience this can be.

    I never tire of re-hearing and re-looking at Judith’s video. It’s as deeply inspirational multi times over as the 1st time I watched it. This is how I wish to pass over with an inner settlement and acceptance of my life, coupled with the feeling of joy as Judith so well, expresses. What if in life, I let my tensions go… the feelings of not being enough? What if I live in this acceptance of life now… then surely this type of passing over is guaranteed?

      I found it has turned the perception of death and dying on its head. Judith was excited about the adventure that was to come. She was so deeply supported by the care she was given and the awareness of the connection she had inside of herself. There was no more searching, no more need to look outside of herself for connection of the answers. Deeply inspiring indeed.

  • Reply leigh matson August 13, 2017 at 7:22 pm

    First few times I watched this I cried, and this time was no different but it didn’t last long as the sheer appreciation and joy for every moment of her life – I couldn’t help but join in and smile.

  • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh August 14, 2017 at 10:59 pm

    This interview is so inspiring. The fact that Judith McIntyre can be so clear, appreciative, joyful and empowered in her relationship to her body’s terminal disease, and the responsibility with which she considers and makes sense of everything is amazing. What strikes me is that most of us do not have such a rich relationship with our daily lives.

    Now from Judith’s own accounts, this is not what she started with. When she met Serge Benhayon her relationship with her life circumstances were quite different. This story is a wonderful testament to the profound impact of Serge Benhayon’s support and teaching, as well as the inspiring example Judith provided through her dedication and focus to use the opportunities offered by life to deepen, expand and evolve.

  • Reply Stephen Gammack August 20, 2017 at 6:52 am

    This is a groundbreaking video, to witness someone with terminal cancer so committed to their daily life and so in the joy of life. Fully present in life even as the physical body is unable to participate to its fullest, Judith it would seem had a commitment to writing and contributing to life around her. It shouldn’t be underestimated how much of an inspiration such a person is to those around them, giving perspective to what really matters and living a realisation that it isn’t one life, there is preparation taking place for the next time around.

    • Reply Leonne August 29, 2017 at 8:26 am

      I agree Stephen. Judith saw the value in every moment of life. She cherished every breath and she did not squander a second once she became aware of how precious life is. I feel absolutely humbled reading about her final few weeks.

To have such clarity and understanding and enjoy each moment and not carry old baggage that we accumulate throughout or life is something that we could all aspire to. It just shows with the loving support we can totally change how we think and our understanding of illness and disease. Your legacy lives on Judith you are an inspiration for us all.

    • Reply Lucy Dahill September 8, 2017 at 3:54 am

      Yes, to live knowing you don’t have issues or baggage because you have chosen to address them and not let anything be unimportant is inspiring, not just in preparation for passing over but for every moment we have on this plane of life.

    I remember when I first saw this interview a few years ago – it stopped me in my tracks. On seeing Judith on her death bed filled with such joy I knew that what she was living must have had something to it. It was quite a stark contrast to another experience I’d had in caring for someone who was terminal ill – there was such fear, denial and sorrow and it was very painful to be a part of. To die in the way Judith showed us was what I wanted and I knew that it started with how I was living.

    Wow. Going through cancer and chemotherapy pain free is a miracle, let alone with this inspiring approach to life and to death that Judith had. It’s so inspiring to watch the healing and joy she experienced which you can feel from listening to and watching her in this video, and to know that death can be something very different to how it’s portrayed, thought of and approached in society today.

  • Reply Annelies van Haastrecht September 2, 2017 at 12:45 am

    I’ve read the interview and saw it a while ago, there is such a beautiful stillness, grace and joy to feel throughout this whole interview. Judith has left behind the truth of the process of dying, how we can heal until the last bit preparing for our next life.
    Another truth that touched me was this one ‘And of course, I mean, God would be simple. He wouldn’t make it hard for us. That’s what we people do.’

  • Reply Shirley-Ann Walters September 2, 2017 at 8:18 pm

  • Reply Mary-Louise Myers September 4, 2017 at 4:26 pm

    This quote by Judith is gold “if you can be with each moment, let it unfold, every moment has got something to offer.” Being with the moment at hand, is the challenge, as often we have jumped to the next without fully being in the present, making the most of it and then allowing the next to unfold.

  • Reply Heather Pope September 5, 2017 at 4:41 am

    The value of being able to spend your last days supported by carers in your own home can’t be underestimated. It is something I personally would hold as one of the most valuable things in life. With ageing comes many challenges, and this type of loving support when there is a terminal illness is something everyone would agree is invaluable beyond measure.

    • Reply Jennifer Smith September 15, 2017 at 5:12 am

      I have to agree Heather and not only loving support for the person dying, but the support was their for everyone. Often carers are exhausted and tired and put the needs of the person and others first. But this was a great example of working together as a community to support the person yes but also the community.

      We often wonder why it is that only 15% of people actually get to die at home when 70%plus people would want to. It coming down to the support. If it takes a community to raise a child, its the same for people to die at home.

And this captures the love and power Universal Medicine can offer. So often we can leave this world with an illness feeling less or angry or hurt – but for someone to go from terror to self-love to excitement is unheard of. It shows there is another way and that all it takes is our choice of how much we want to understand and appreciate.

I could watch this again and again and again. What I was really aware of this time was how the room felt so still, with love and holding supporting Judith and also was she had given herself this space, something we can learn from to caring for all others. ‘The ease that life starts to take on as you really care for yourself first, which I had never done, was so precious.’ again something we can learn from.

    Hearing someone talk about their body feeling so alive and well, before they are about to die is incredible, I can relate to it though, because feeling alive is about how you live, not how long you have…many of us walk around in a way that is like sleep walking, one function activity to another, not really feeling why we are doing what we are doing, being present in the moment, is feeling alive. This is why is is possible to feel this way, near death, inspiring.

    Imagine not being devastated by a diagnosis, especially one that says, you will die from this. This is not a denial either, but a story of someone who has done a lot of work on themselves, healed many aspects of their life and also someone who has reached a place of complete acceptance of what is happening to their body and also accepting completely the loving assistance that has been made available to support them. I know I have said this before, but what has been shared here is the way forward for palliative care.

      It is quite something to be inspired and re-invigorated about my commitment to life by someone who is so fully and joyfully embracing every moment in the advanced stages of a terminal illness and only a few days away from passing away. The level of appreciation, understanding, and wisdom offered by Judith is exceptional. It turns the contemporary idea of terminal disease and dying as a curse, completely on its head.

    It is always a joy to re-visit this article video to feel the unwavering truth that Judith shares with such a deep love and appreciation of life and the knowing that we are so much more than a physical body.

  • Reply HM October 14, 2017 at 1:27 am

    ‘Sometimes the doctor learns from the patients.’ – Wow what a transformation. The experience Judith went through here is just amazing and so transformative – and what a huge interview to capture – showing that before death, we do not need to check out or give up. We can totally surrender to what is happening to the body and the call of the soul.

  • Reply Lucy Duffy October 14, 2017 at 5:26 pm

    I’m left in awe and so deeply inspired by Judith. I also feel the urgency of claiming and living more and more of the truth I know – not just for my own benefit but so I am a reflection to others that there is another way to live. Everyone deserves to end this life with joy and love, surrendering into our Soul, so it is up to those of us who know the truth to live it.

    This whole experience is so valuable, as shows that the process of illness and passing away can be actually lived in full joy and grace. Thanks to Judith for surrendering so transparently to it, to the volunteering team for making it possible with their dedication, to The Co-Creative team for making this exquisite testimonial accessible to everyone and to Serge Benhayon for his inspiration and support. The Love that hold all the process is deeply felt and has no end.. So much to appreciate and learn when life and death are approached with responsibility, awareness and care.

    This is an amazing video, what really struck me was when Judith mentions her revelation, that life is simple, that it is about our relationship with ourselves. She goes onto to say that once we nail that, everything else is a breeze and can be done with ease.
    I was pondering how I often try to complicate things but this profound simplicity is a hard-hitting truth that supports every element of life.

    • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh November 4, 2017 at 1:18 am

      This is a profound message offered by Judith that it is our relationship with ourselves that determines our experience and in turn interaction with life. A great one to remember the next time self-created complications lead to asking “why me?”

  • Reply Stephanie Stevenson October 18, 2017 at 4:18 pm

    Thank you for bringing this inspiring and deeply healing video to be available to the world Rebecca. I shared it with a lady who has recently experienced the death of a loved one – it brought tears of joy in place of tears of sadness.

  • Reply Sarah Karam October 19, 2017 at 9:42 pm

    I am just amazed, that a woman as sick as Judith was when she made this video still manages to hold a depth of quality in each and every word she delivers. Judith is more switched on than most healthy people you meet, what a woman!

  • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh October 20, 2017 at 12:15 am

    “If you can be with each moment, let it unfold, every moment has got something to offer. And I don’t mind letting go. I loved my wheelie walker when I could still walk; now I love my wheelchair because I can’t walk. I had to give up my queen size bed; now I love my hospital bed… I’m just with it. I’m just with each thing as it happens and… it’s fine.”
    When we go through phases of life where there is a lot of change going on and things at times feel very much out of control, it is common for people to feel a victim of life. Yet here we have an amazingly inspiring and joyful reflection on how we could be with life. Stunning.

  • Reply Sylvia October 20, 2017 at 4:45 pm

    Deeply Touching Judith.
    Thank you for this sharing to the world.
    It brings such a different light on dying.
    I am sure you do fine wherever you are know as you Serge said.
    The imprint you leave behind is the one you will find in return.

    ‘As you meet what comes before you with what is within you, you develop an awareness that what is before you was sent to bring out what is within you’ (Serge Benhayon) This quote and the joy and wisdom in Judith’s eyes, words and smile confirm for me that we are always offered the very thing that we need to open up to the truth we all know and carry within us.

    • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh October 31, 2017 at 2:08 am

      The word ‘always’ here is very significant for me: “we are always offered the very thing that we need to open up to the truth we all know and carry within us.” Most of us have a habit of in effect throwing our toys out of the pram when we find a situation challenging. How much wiser to hold the awareness as does Judith in this blog that how we choose to live and respond to life is key.

    Magical interview, deeply inspiring and a wonderful testament to the amazing work of Universal Medicine.

  • Reply Jennifer Smith October 26, 2017 at 4:56 am

    “Having fun while dying”. Now these are 2 things that rarely go together. Dying is not seen as something that could be fun. What I love about this that Judith was sharing ,was that she is in such appreciation of each moment that is on offer and welcoming whatever the next thing was that she needed; be it a wheel walker, wheel chair or hospital bed. Judith clearly had no regrets here. Even though Judith was dying, everything here was clearly about her living every moment.

  • Reply Elizabeth McCann October 26, 2017 at 5:56 pm

    A very beautiful and deeply inspiring interview and sharing on how with acceptance of each and every moment, we allow our life to unfold so that we maximise all the learnings that are presented to us both for our own evolution and that of others. This to me is what living with joy truly means.

    • Reply Matilda Bathurst October 31, 2017 at 2:45 am

      And this to me is taking responsibility for our choices and realising that every moment is an opportunity for extraordinary learning and transformation.

  • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh October 27, 2017 at 12:45 am

    I have noticed that when we are unsatisfied with our day, we want to stay up later and later in the hope that we can cram in enough to finally feel content.
    “As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.” This quote from Leonardo Da Vinci offers a profound re-evaluation of our current trend of fearing death and feeling so cheated when it arrives.

  • Reply Stephen Gammack October 27, 2017 at 2:56 pm

    I love how in this interview Judith cuts through the complication, it is like she has very clear eyes for the truth as she prepares to pass over. Here description of the complication of most spiritual practice, and the simplicity of how we can all easily live, and how Universal Medicine has supported her in that. Nothing complicated, just a whole lot more room for loving relationships and warmth and appreciation for what is in front of us.

  • Reply Matilda Bathurst October 31, 2017 at 2:44 am

    Being able to read this, to share in Judith’s experience of end of life, is absolute gold and is opening me up to a deeper understanding of what is possible when we die; so natural and yet not currently statistically normal.

  • Reply Rebecca Wingrave November 4, 2017 at 6:50 am

    Wow this video is amazing to watch, I am blown away by Judith’s joy and appreciation, it makes me realise that we can live this way always and that are there are no excuses not to – very beautiful.

  • Reply Melinda Knights November 4, 2017 at 12:35 pm

    It’s quite an amazing experience watching this video, all the things we hold onto, trivial or serious can be let go of to make space for the joy of simply being connected to ourselves. So much has come to me from watching this video about appreciating where I am in life now, all of which I had not been truly holding in appreciation. Judith is so inspiring, not because her body is dying but because of what she was choosing to live each day. The exquisite gorgeousness of her essence, the true person she had reconnected to within, was a joy to be with. That is how we can each be each day.

  • Reply Rebecca Wingrave November 4, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    Judith’s acceptance of her diagnosis and the responsibility she takes with her illness is beautiful, it is awesome to see someone letting go of past hurts and making so many changes to her life and how she felt about herself so quickly without delay and holding back, Judith is an inspiration for us all and shows us how it is possible to pass away.

  • Reply Michael Brown November 4, 2017 at 7:26 pm

    I have never seen so much contentment in one who is in their final moments before… i’m in absolute awe.

  • Reply Rebecca Wingrave November 5, 2017 at 4:25 pm

    This quote by Leonardo Da Vinci feels so very gorgeous; ‘As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.’ There seems to be this idea in society that death cannot be happy, Leonardo and Judith McIntyre show us that there is another way, that there can be appreciation and joy at death.

  • Reply Rebecca Wingrave November 6, 2017 at 4:06 pm

    I watched this video a few days ago and this morning I woke up feeling a little anxious about work and life generally, I then remembered about Judith and how joyful and appreciate she was of every moment, I made a choice to appreciate my work, my life and myself and this shifted how I felt, I noticed instead of anxiousness I felt joyful and realised in that moment that I can choose to always see the negative and the issues in life and focus on these or I can choose to appreciate myself and my life and make this the focus.

    • Reply Matilda Bathurst November 11, 2017 at 1:17 pm

      It is so cool to be inspired by others rather than insidiously judgemental of ourselves because of our shortcomings. The opportunity to flip the way we approach things, as you did here, Rebecca, is very inspiring.

  • Reply Rebecca Wingrave November 7, 2017 at 4:33 pm

    I love coming back to this video of Judith, it inspires me to live everyday with my natural joy and to appreciate myself, my work and the people in my life.

    “Having fun while dying”. If Judith can have fun while dying then there is much fun to be had in everyday life and in every moment, what an amazing woman Judith was and what incredible wisdom and joy she bought and what an inspiration she will be for many people for many years to come.

    • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh November 28, 2017 at 1:12 am

    This interview and sharing from Judith is such a wonderful gift to the world, a world where there is so much fear, regret denial, and complexities around death. Judith has shown us that there is another way to approach death which is loving, allowing, accepting and embracing of each moment as an important part of the dying process.

  • Reply jennym November 24, 2017 at 7:57 pm

    What Judith describes so beautifully is the experience of what was happening to her body but the being inside feeling so lovely with little fear or anxiety. Such an example of living the love that we are and connection to the stillness within us all.

  • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh November 25, 2017 at 7:06 am

    The teachings of Serge Benhayon – in fact every aspect of his expression in life – reminds us that there is far more to us than the physical manifestation we can see and touch. This interview is a wonderful reflection of the deepening sense of awareness, joy and responsibility he inspires.

      There is a perception that to make the most of life we have to do lots, gather lots and achieve lots. Yet the richness of experience shared here turns that all on its head. It seems we have been missing the point for a very long time.

  • Reply Ray Karam December 1, 2017 at 4:18 am

    Thank you and how can you not be touched by this incredible story and life. I had to read this line over and over, “if you can be with each moment, let it unfold, every moment has got something to offer. ” We so often pass through moments to get to the next or drag ones with us or dismiss others and yet here we have the way to simply live truly and I know just reading this article today has changed something in me.

  • Reply Nico van Haastrecht December 2, 2017 at 2:55 pm

    Reading this blog today made me again realise that there is so much more to life then just the temporal things we tend to get involved in. It is actually about the inner quality of life and then, like what Judith is sharing in this blog, joy in life becomes a natural no matter of the state of our body or how much we can do. It is actually purely about living our essence to the best of our ability that really counts in life and from which that natural joy emerges.

  • Reply Gill Randall December 2, 2017 at 5:29 pm

    I have heard many people want to get the end of the dying process over and done with, what’s the point they have said? They are not getting any better, so they feel why are they still here suffering? Understanding that being with each moment of every day and letting it unfold, and every moment has something to offer, is a completely different way of viewing this time. Could it be that this is a huge opportunity to discard some old patterns and be joyful? .. Judith shows this is possible.

    • Reply Golnaz Shariatzadeh December 8, 2017 at 12:52 am

      There is a huge perception that humanity has been running with that youth, achievement, recognition and function of our body parts is crucial and what we have to strive for. There is so much demand on finding the next magic product or treatment that can deliver us these. Yet our bodies have a humbling way of showing us that this is not the way. Judith McIntyre’s sharing of her developing awareness and wise insights is a great article for all of us to read, especially when life has asked us to stop and reassess.

  • Reply Matilda Bathurst December 5, 2017 at 12:23 am

    A truly inspiring role model… Judith’s interview and story has changed and continues to change my relationship with dying.

  • Reply Adele Leung December 9, 2017 at 12:26 pm

    This is so beautiful to read. It is the inspiration of how to live truly and we can start anytime and it will never be too late, the love that we are surrounded by is enormous because this is who we are within us, when let out we will be reflected huge love back. Face every moment as it comes and this love gets to be expressed unreservedly, this is the true way to live, and this true way allows us to come to a deep understanding and acceptance of death. Connecting with ourselves is what we naturally know, if we are free from the limitations we set ourselves up in the process of seeking.

  • Reply Rebecca Wingrave December 9, 2017 at 6:00 pm
