Truth – I Can Feel it in my Bones

by Sarah Davis, Goonellabah NSW

Recently, a young women said something to me that I felt to be true. I have shared this in a piece called ‘The Truth of Love – Equally for All’. As a result, I found myself reflecting on what it was like to feel truth.

I knew at the time that what this young woman shared with me was true, as I could feel it in my whole body; I felt it as a “yes, I know that”. There was a feeling akin to ‘relief’ in my body; of something brought to my awareness that I wasn’t even fully aware I had lost. Upon hearing the truth in her words, I felt more complete, whole, more connected to a sense of the depths of ‘me’.

For me this was one of those awesome ‘wow!’ moments, where a possibility had been presented to me which I felt instantly and deeply as a truth, and one, which is often the case, that started my head spinning – a sign that old beliefs were being shaken.

I was left silent and in contemplation – it was a beautiful moment that I can still feel ‘living’ within me.

When I reflect on this moment I feel a confirmation that truth connects us more deeply to who we already are, which for me is akin to a ‘deep knowing’ that is always there: any truth, when felt, does this. From this I realise that the only ‘thing’ I am ever truly missing is my connection to this knowing, and nothing more. Truth then acts as a bridge or connector of sorts to the quality – this knowing – that is within me.

So what I felt as ‘relief’ was actually a deeper connection to who I already truly am – my whole body felt this as an expansion – like the ‘walls’ of my body spread out and touched everything around me. I felt beyond a doubt that what had been spoken by the young woman was true, I had already heard and knew what she was saying ‘intellectually’, but it was at this point that I actually felt it. Truth has this effect because it speaks to the part of us which ‘knows all’: when we are spoken to with truth, it is an opportunity for us to connect with and feel this part, this knowing – our ‘inner-most’ – more deeply; for it to come into our awareness. It is our body which instantly delivers this knowing, giving weight to that old adage ‘I can feel it in my bones’. That is, we know truth because it lives within us. When we feel truth, we are really feeling ourselves.

Truth for me always brings this feeling of connection if I allow myself to feel this simple and very natural state of being (for much can get in the way – the ‘struggles’ of the human being). This connection has been unfolding for me. Initially it felt like being reunited with an awesome old friend whom I’d lost contact with a long time ago and forgotten about – but remembered instantly when I heard (saw) them again. The feeling was one of celebration that we had re-connected with each other; life felt more complete now we were ‘back together’, we were more powerful together than apart, and I didn’t want to lose ‘what we had’. I now find myself deepening my understanding and feeling of truth, with no need to ‘hold on’ or ‘keep it’, or have a fear of losing it – for how can I lose something that is living within me?!

I have come to feel this more deeply, that truth lives within me and can never be lost or truly forgotten – and that my awareness of and connection to truth only ever depends on the choices I make in each moment.

Through Serge Benhayon’s presentations on ‘The Livingness’ and the many practitioners who are experts in their various healing modalities, I have experienced tremendous support in the form of practical tools, healing, and a deep sense of being loved and held in equalness. This has given me the opportunity to practice making choices which support my connection to me, my knowing, my ‘inner-most’: previously I had been living in a way that was not honouring of my body or my true feelings. Having the simple and practical tools to reconnect to who I naturally am has been so absolutely wonderful and brings me a tremendous sense of freedom to truly know that I am responsible for the quality of my life.

On a daily basis therefore, through the choices I am making to listen to my body – literally to ‘feel it in my bones’ – I am experiencing the truth that lives within me. This is a constant unfolding with an immeasurable depth of love, joy and glory.

The gift of being alive is that we all – equally – have the freedom to choose to re-connect to these depths within us – and as truth holds the same quality of that which lives within us, it is an invitation, a ‘call’ to feel all that we truly are.

  1. The truth within isn’t something that I have fully been appreciating. Like yourself Sarah I’ve had a reconnection to it and now that it is back it’s my normal, but looking back to where I used to be til now there is a lot to appreciate and cherish about the truth I can now feel and express.

  2. This blog seems to me to be written as a confirmation of what we know to be true. We can get something ‘intellectually’ but it’s when we actually feel it in our bodies that the change occurs, it’s a resonation deep in our bodies, this is very healing as it allows us to become more aware of our surroundings like a wakeup call to what is really going on in life.

  3. More and more I am sensing what is true and what is not. When out in the world and without judgement, it is clear to see how inauthentic much of life and what is offered is – there is a lot of pretense and falseness out there. And when you meet the real deal, it’s a joy. Even more important that we embody truth in our own movements as a reflection for everyone else.

  4. I have found that our bodies respond to a truth in a way that our minds cannot, feeling the truth of something happens at a particle level in our bodies it’s a though they realign themselves which gives us that feeling of expansion.

  5. There is something about the way we register truth, and I can feel how I often shortchange myself in its process, or actually sabotage, instead of letting it be received in full, by reducing it a mental ‘I know this’. And I really get what you are sharing here, how our reconnection to the body is the key, and we learn to move in such a way that its acuity be given a chance for it to be honoured as the marker of truth that it truly is above and all anything else.

  6. Appreciation is some thing that is always going to support us and when coming from another is a simple conformation that will deepen how we appreciate ourselves in all we do to the bone.

  7. I personally feel there is a vast difference from what we know on an intellectual basis to what we feel in our bodies. To me when I feel the truth in my body a healing can take place which allows for a deepening and a greater natural understanding of myself and other people.

    1. Yes it is Andrew, a whole body experience and beautiful to know truth from deep within ourselves. But sometimes, when in too much motion and disconnected from ourselves we shut down this quality.

  8. It’s always there truth, within us, ready and waiting and its not to be held onto, it’s there, and as we allow ourselves to move in connection with ourselves, and all around us, we have a space to more deeply feel our truth.

  9. “That is, we know truth because it lives within us. When we feel truth, we are really feeling ourselves.” Wow Sarah your words very much nailed it for me – your are simply telling the truth. Now the only question is – do we really want to listen what our body is telling us?????

  10. “we know truth because it lives within us.” This shows us that we have lived this truth before and are coming back to the truth of who we are.

  11. When I hear or speak a truth, I can feel an openness, an expansion and a lightness in my body but if I was to speak a lie my whole body would feel so very different. It is as if parts of it begin to shut down, contract and my breath doesn’t flow smoothly anymore. It is as if something foreign has invaded my body. This goes to show how truth is so naturally part of who we are and anything less is registered immediately, thus the importance of being aware of the messages our body is imparting to us in every single moment.

  12. When we connect to truth we know, we can feel it to our bones. When I accept truth there is an expansion which feels so freeing from the blinkered way I had been living.

  13. I love how you make us aware of the wisdom of the saying I can feel it in my bones. Bones are our foundation and when we allow truth to be our foundation, our body will support us with healthy and strong bones to build on and the other side is as I have experienced when we choose to disregard or even neglect the truth we get presented by our body, our bones can get brittle and fragile. The beauty is we can reverse the illness by making the choice to live the truth which we can feel in our bones.

  14. You share here is something quite pivotal, that until we get a reflection in our life we can live without clocking that we are unaware of something, be it a behaviour or a belief, or should I say have chosen to be unaware. We can think we know truth, and then feel what hearing truth feels like in the body not as a translation in the mind. “Upon hearing the truth in her words, I felt more complete, whole, more connected to a sense of the depths of ‘me’”.

  15. Our body knows the vibration of truth, its true rhythm and flow and communicates this to us from the depth of our whole being. When we build a deep awareness and relationship with ourselves and honour the feelings within our body we align to the clarity that truth brings.

  16. “I have come to feel this more deeply, that truth lives within me and can never be lost or truly forgotten – and that my awareness of and connection to truth only ever depends on the choices I make in each moment”

    Truth lives within me – I love this Sarah – its when we forget this we get ourselves into all sorts of problems.

  17. The way for me to connect more deeply to a quality within me is to have a Universal Medicine Esoteric healing session. These sessions are about reconnecting back to something I already know but it feels just out of reach. The more I build this lost connection to myself the more important it becomes as I can feel how my attitude towards life and everyone in it subtly changes. I am far more able to discern what is going on around me and stay steady rather than to numb out because I don’t like what I can feel as so withdraw from life.

  18. A full, complete ‘Yes’ from the whole body is so different from a head yes that needs figuring out and convincing. It knows the truth already so it can only confirm. Everything is here already, within us – and there’s no ownership.

  19. Words are just words when are preached but not lived. They are like a dry field with no flowers. Nothing to do with what I felt when I listened Serge Benhayon for the very first time. The energy from his expression resonated in me as ‘yes, that’s it’ the stillness felt within my body that woke me up to see and feel who I really am confirmed me the way of the Livingness would be my way.

  20. I can feel your sharing in my bones Sarah. It brings me to appreciate deeply everytime I feel it because it bring me back to me, to the Truth of who I am. Thank you

  21. “Truth for me always brings this feeling of connection if I allow myself to feel this simple and very natural state of being” And herein lies the key to the universe.

  22. To give us more space in life, we need connection to our light/our essence. For by this connection we feel our power and can claim ourselves more in life. A truly profound unfolding.

  23. For somebody who lived in his head for most of his life, your sharing feels as cookbook how to feel, Sarah. What is most liberating is that truth already is in me, and that feeling something outside of me as truth, is just a connection established between my interior truth and this exterior truth. Awesome. Thank you.

  24. It’s true Sarah, truth delivered as a revelation can literally make your body feel like it is being woken up.

  25. Truth is an awesome word for, even when it has been bastardised, it still remains able to reveal what is really going on, because true truth simply cannot be denied by the simplicity of its presentation.

  26. “I now find myself deepening my understanding and feeling of truth, with no need to ‘hold on’ or ‘keep it’, or have a fear of losing it – for how can I lose something that is living within me?!”- I can relate to ‘holding onto’ a feeling of the truth that I felt was a very significant or ‘peak experience’ for me. But what I am feeling now is how there are not any peaks or valleys when we are talking about how the Soul communicates to us anyways, only a forever deepening awareness with no end. So instead of grasping onto and reminiscing these so-called ‘peak moments’ I am now allowing the next level of realisation of truth to come to me and in a way simply saying “What’s next?”

    1. Thank you Michaelgoodhart36, what you introduce here is the importance of seeing it as a re-discovery and stepping away from the self-bashing that comes from feeling like you ‘should have known’ and the desperate feeling we can get to not want to be duped again.

  27. I can so feel it in my bones too Sarah. It doesn’t matter what I want to believe when I hear truth or speak truth it resonates so deep and it vibrates in my body to the bones.

  28. When we hear the truth spoken our whole body rejoices. This happens even if we do not like what is being said and shows that our body knows truth even if our mind wants to deny it.

  29. We have access to truth through every particle of our body, it is there constantly for us to access or we can dismiss and live in a way that denies us of truth from ignoring our body’s wisdom and intelligence.

  30. Like you shared knowing the truth and connecting to it is a forever evolving process. Although there is always an even deeper truth to have access to it is important to claim in an absoluteness what is the truth in that certain, immediate moment of evolution. That then offers and allows a foundation for more to come.

  31. There is a truth that connects us all, it lives within covered by ideals patterns and beliefs that we have taken on board from very young. A lot of the time we can feel the truth of something but can be taken off course by persuasion then I guess we have gone into doubt by not honoring what was there to be felt. I know I have done this for most of my life believing other people rather than what I know to be true, trusting me and what I know has been a long road to walk.

  32. You say Truth lives within you and I know that Truth lives within me and all of us. This confirms how we are all connected at essence and all share the one Truth.

    1. Yes, no one has more truth than another- the only difference is how much do we allow it to be accessed. Truth is not linear- the more we move in space and allow it, the more we will be vehicles for the universal truths.It sounds too simple for the mind that wants to owns things and that loves security, but it is in fact so easy. The ones that know, that truth is not for themselves but for others, will be poured by wisdom.

    2. Beautifully expressed Nicola, and deeply confirming that it is through connecting to our body’s wisdom that we connects to a one unified truth. It is so simple and we have the answers to life within us all.

      1. Yes we walk with the answer within and I guess when you are the answer and carry the answer there is no question!

  33. We know truth better than we know re-interpretations, half-truths and lies. We know it in our bones but we have learnt to mistrust that feeling when our bones ‘tell’ us because we didn’t know how to deal with people we trusted not telling us the truth yet assuring us it was the truth. We get that reflected in so many areas of our lives from our parents, our teachers, our media, our politicians, the list could go on, that we have to build a body that can give voice to our bones again. Remember that we know truth from the inside out not the outside in.

  34. If someone delivers truth it is always felt in the body as a truth and this supports us to expand and deepen within our body. That is what I experience being in the workshops of Serge Benhayon.
    I am crazy for all he brings through, it all resonates strongly as my truth too. I just love it.

    1. Yes you cannot even put into words why you know it is true. It is a body respond that cannot be described nor explained by any logic.

    2. So true Elizabeth and this is why our body is so powerful, it has instant access to truth because every particle in our body is divine, it is part of the universe and it is connected to a wisdom greater than what we can comprehend or imagine.

  35. “I now find myself deepening my understanding and feeling of truth, with no need to ‘hold on’ or ‘keep it’, or have a fear of losing it – for how can I lose something that is living within me?!” – This statement is really powerful and one that explains for me why there have been times when I have felt really expanded and connected to that Truth and I have tried to protect that feeling as if it was fleeting, and withdraw from a certain situation or person who I felt was in a negative emotional state so I could maintain that connection with truth. But this is a falsity, because how can I be truly ‘connected to Truth’ while at the same time avoiding others and wanting that feeling just for me? Alternatively, I could have simply walked into those difficult situations, felt my expanded state, and known that it is my choice to contract or not, and offer that feeling of connection and joy to another through inspiration without any expectations.

  36. When truth is spoken it is felt in every cell of the body, it ignites something deep within us, but we don’t always chose to listen to the great wisdom truth offers, because it will expose the comfortable lies we have accepted as being the truth.

    1. Yes. I have found there are times where I don’t understand what someone is telling me but I can feel it is true. I have learnt to just sit with it, to let it percolate and I know that at some point it will either be confirmed by my body as true or not. This feels far more true that just denying because I think I don’t agree…what’s with that?!
