All my life I have been scared of writing

By Monika Rietveld, The Netherlands

All my life I have been scared of writing, but what is happening now in the media helps me to break my pattern of “keeping my mouth shut”. The lies and accusations about Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon are so outrageous that I want to speak up and tell the truth since they are also about me and my way of living! It is also a great opportunity to take stock of all the changes in my life since UNIMED.

My life has changed so much for the good since I became a student of Universal Medicine and of my own inner-heart:

  • I feel joy and up to what the day will bring me, instead of waking up tired.
  • I feel fit, where I used to be sick a lot and not feel vital.
  • I have much more body awareness, which helps me to make self-loving choices, instead of my former disregarding behaviour towards myself.
  • I get feedback from others that I have become much easier to be with because I am less controlling and accept more, who they are, what they may choose.
  • I am connected to myself, and my inner-heart and that makes a real difference when connecting to other people. The feedback I have been getting from friends, clients and colleagues is they feel met in their contact with me.
  • I feel more a stillness in me and this helps me to make choices, whereas before I would be racy and anxious every day.
  • Remarkably, I can also be alone for the first time in my life and enjoy it, enjoy being with me, instead of being dependent on whether others would have time to spend with me.
  • I don’t go into reaction so often anymore.
  • I am honest with myself now, and what I am feeling. From here I can take responsibility for my actions, instead of blaming others, like I used to do.
  • Working everyday has become so much fun!! I can see I make a difference for my clients and for the other people that work in the same company. Previously, a 5 day working week would be far too much, but now I can do this easily with my rhythm of going to bed in time, getting up on time and taking really good care of myself with the food that I eat.
  • Just yesterday, a new colleague said I inspired her to do the same, with my good care of myself with my food and going for a walk every lunch break.

  1. It is so great Monika that you have publicly made this statement about the changes that you have made in your lifestyle and when reading the list I can see that they are real, lasting, tangible, practical changes and changes that pretty much everyone on the planet would want to have in their lives.

  2. This has been one of many changes for me too, which has completely changed my life and those around me, “I feel more a stillness in me and this helps me to make choices, whereas before I would be racy and anxious every day.” This is something to celebrate and to be studied especially in a time where most struggle everyday with anxiety and nervousness.

  3. Beautifully expressed Monika, I resonate with many of the changes you speak of here, being more in touch with my body and how it feels has been and is a huge gift, one that allows me to more clearly observe life and react less.

  4. Gorgeous to feel you speaking out here Monika. The changes you have made within yourself and the way you are now living are well worth claiming and sharing in full especially as most of humanity live the exact opposite and are convinced there is no other way.
