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

  2. 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.

  3. “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?”

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. “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.

  13. 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?!

  14. How beautiful to be reminded that truth is living within. This to me is undeniable – though I have tried to dumb my awareness down it is always there to be reconnected to.
