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. What a fascinating observation; ‘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’ ….. its as if truth when we feel it inside disarms us, it knocks us out of the locked pattern we can so easily get caught up in when we live from our heads.

    1. Very true simonwilliams8, being presented with truth can be very uncomfortable exposing what is being said or where the energy is coming from… the head. The immediate response can be very harming and attacking but it is the responsibility of the deliverer of truth to simply observe and not react/absorb… a learning I am beginning to have an understanding for.

    2. Yes I get that. It unravels us and opens up the space to feel the complexities that have created that false we have accepted as truth. It can make the head spin to consider just how far down a rabbit hole we have gone without discerning.

  2. “That is, we know truth because it lives within us. When we feel truth, we are really feeling ourselves.” I never thought of it like that but it makes sense because truth lives within every cell of our body and when we hear truth it re-awakens the cells. I have always felt this in Serge Benhayon’s presentations my body comes alive when i listened to him as every cell in my body aligns to the truth.

  3. ‘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.’ Being confronted with the diagnosis of osteoporosis this makes so much sense, for years and years, or probably lifetimes I have not lived the truth I know has always been there in myself, I chose to not listen, to put others first and gave my power away. The weakness of my bones are reflecting to me how I ignored the truth, choosing to not express what I know is true. Such a blessing to now make other choices and listen to what my body is telling me.

  4. ” we know truth because it lives within us. When we feel truth, we are really feeling ourselves.’ Beautifully said Sarah

  5. The words of Serge Benhayon in presenting the Ageless Wisdom vibrate within my body as a reconnection to truth.

    1. yes, so we know we are in fact living a lie. We may like to admit this yet if we consider truth as an all encompassing way of living in relation to our Oneness, any step away from this is a reduction of ourselves in truth.

  6. Knowing something ‘to your bones’ is deeply satisfying and confirming – that we know truth, and know ourselves.

  7. We are truth deep within and so of course when we hear truth our bodies resonate and we have that ahh this I know. And we do, and it’s about living in a way that supports a connection to that knowing. As you say Sarah we really do know it in our bones.

  8. We do feel Truth in our bones and we are very sharp at discerning when something is Truth or when something is lies. But it depends on what we have chosen to align to. If we’ve chosen to align to what is not truth, then when truth comes along it may seem exposing or uncomfortable and we may not like that so we dismiss, ignore or cut it down. But it doesn’t change that we know it in our bones.

  9. Truth is so much more than words, and even so much more than facts. Truth is a feeling in the body. You know when you say truth, you know when you feel truth, and you know when you see or hear it. The body knows the truth.

  10. Feeling truth in our bones is an unshakeable knowing and brings an ease to the often more familiar tension of trying to work out if someone is telling the truth or not.

  11. When truth is felt it is deeply confirming of that which is known. It has a resonance, a vibration that can be felt in every cell of the body yet it is expansive and cannot be contained within a body alone. What a great unifier truth is.

  12. Sarah your words ‘we know truth because it lives within us’ is so true, because when we hear truth we feel it in our body, we may deny the truth, but we do feel it deeply within us.

  13. I can feel the truth of what Serge Benhayon presents; I have never felt anything quite like it before. My whole body resonates with what has been said and without out me even seemingly doing anything my whole body reconfigures itself. It’s as though I have twisted myself into a knot and slowly the knot get unraveled and I am exposed as who I truly am. The unraveling is the letting go of ideals and beliefs that I have taken on from others believing them to true. However truth does not constrict the body truth expands the body and that’s now I can tell a lie from the truth.

  14. A child recently asked me how we could be certain someone was telling the truth. I said that you could feel it in your body. They weren’t convinced as you couldn’t be certain certain. I said that this becomes about trusting ourselves and what we feel and know from our body’s communication. This is the key, to develop that relationship with our body and ourselves so that we trust what we feel.

  15. When I have agonized over a decision in the past, the true answer has always felt like every particle in my body was in agreement.

  16. I love when a person comes in and delivers a truth- it ignites inside you the same truth that you know- this shows that it is universal as it is felt by all.

  17. ” 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. ” this is so true Sara , and this is why lies are so disturbing , the ” quality ” of lies disturbs the body for there is no truth in a lie.

  18. Beautiful Sarah, feeling truth in your bones is all knowing and rock solid, keeping connected to your body is key to always feeling what is true or not.

  19. Indeed we are responsible for the quality of our life – and it is so clear when we feel something in our bodies that is true. Because our bodies connect to it. And I love what you share here- that ‘when we feel truth – we are really feeing ourselves’ – this has such a depth to it, as our bodies totally know and present to us the truth.
