We Know More Than We Think…

Before meeting Serge Benhayon I had always noticed that there was often two conversations going on when I was listening to someone talk…

  1. The words that I heard coming out of their mouth.
  2. The truth of what I felt in my body.

I noticed there was often incongruence between the two and it wasn’t until I started studying with Universal Medicine and understanding energy that I could fully claim the truth of what I had observed and felt for all those years.

Back then I didn’t understand it as energy or would not have called it this – I just knew what I felt. You know that feeling in the body that you can so easily override with the mind? I realised I had been dismissing these feelings and not acknowledging the truth of what my body was sharing with me. There is such a deep well of wisdom and knowing in our body that is being communicated in every moment, and an absolute gift, should we choose to listen to it. Finally I could now bring understanding to where this second conversation was coming from and know that it was very real and not something I imagined.

There are many occasions when I have felt that what comes out of people’s mouths is not true, but what is felt in energy is always the truth. Most people appear to be unaware of this and though they are not intentionally lying, they often say what they think others want to hear or what they think they need to say… but their body and energy communicates the truth of what actually is.

Sometimes you just know about something – nothing has been said – but you can’t deny the deep feeling of knowing. For example, when a friend says they will come to dinner, but the way that they say yes tells you that they are not going to be there. The words are heard as a YES, but the intent behind the words is felt as a NO. Of course, what inevitably follows is a text or a message to say that they can’t make it to dinner.

Or when you get the feeling that someone has just spoken about you – and they come into your thoughts.

Or when you meet someone and even though they may not admit or express it in words, you know there is an attraction and that they really dig you.

And just to be clear, I am not talking about reading a situation based on what we personally would like to project or how we would like to see it. I am talking about that inner truth that we can connect to deep inside… that inner knowing that is unwavering and absolute from the body.

The truth is…

  • We know energy.
  • We know that everything is energy.
  • We know when someone is not ok or not themselves without them needing to tell us.
  • We know when someone is jealous of us.
  • We know when someone has judged us.
  • We know what’s going on with another even when they may be on the other side of the world.
  • We know when someone fancies us.
  • We know when someone is genuine.
  • We know when someone is speaking from the heart.
  • We know truth.
  • We know true love.

We know because we know energy from the inside out.

We know that when Einstein said “everything is energy”, it was true. We do not need eyes to visually see it, because energy is felt.

Energy has no walls, no borders, it just is.

We know, because we are amazing beings of energy!

But what do we do with this knowing? Do we listen to our bodies and honour what we feel?

Or do we go into self-doubt, numb ourselves or check-out so that we don’t have to feel and see all of this, or deal with the realities of life?

The thing is we know a lot… so much more than we may be willing to admit or see about the world and ourselves that our body is communicating every day.

Perhaps it is as simple as giving ourselves permission to acknowledge and trust what we feel in our body – knowing that this will support us to re-connect to the deep well of wisdom that is within us all.

As I continue to give myself permission to stop overriding and dismissing what I feel, listening to the wisdom of my body, I am enriched by what life unfolds before me. And in these moments of wisdom I am reminded that our body knows more than our minds can think!

Forever inspired by Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and the Ancient Wisdom teachings.

  1. When we become numb to ourselves, driven by the mind to the extent we stop feeling what is there to be felt, we’re truly lost. It is often easier to look out and focus on so-called failings of another, but be unaware of self abusive patterns in ourselves. Living from mind disconnects us from our own inner knowing and what is true.

  2. ‘but their body and energy communicates the truth of what actually is”. Being able to discern truth and feel a situation fully for the first time is a blessing, even though you might question why you didn’t see it in the first place. Once seen it can never be disregarded, but acted on.

  3. This is very true, and even when I think I am getting a sense of what is underneath the obvious appearance and words, if there’s any doubt, it simply is an invitation to a deeper connection with my inner-most.

  4. Marika I so appreciate what you have written because I realised from reading your blog that I have not fully appreciated what Serge Benhayon offers the world and that is that what we feel is not imagined but it is real. So many of us dismiss the feeling that we have especially when we are children because we are told they are not real just a product of an over stimulated mind. People don’t want to know about these feelings because they have them too and try to ignore them by numbing themselves in all sorts of ways. Once again I feel we have got this round the wrong way; if we were to acknowledge our feelings and not dismiss them then society would naturally change because we wouldn’t put up with the abuse that is so rife in our communities that currently we sweep under the carpet of life in an effort to be nice rather than real.

  5. Listening to our bodies takes away the “numbed” tough-ness that we exhibit and opens us to True intelligence that feels so much more than our mind is willing to admit.

  6. Thank you Marika for a powerful and simple blog that is a great reminder for me to come back to trusting all that I feel and knowing that I have felt what indeed I have.

  7. There is so much we can know, that we can pick up on, that we can register, from the simple unspoken words that someone else can express. There is much communicated in the silence itself.

  8. It is a beautiful gift to ourselves when we begin to develop this relationship with the body and its intelligence.

  9. Marika what a great blog to read about how we override our feelings and dismiss them for what ever reason.
    Many of us doubt that we can instinctively know something to be true but then go into denial and doubt. I believe it is because we are not brought up or educated to take heed of these feelings as they are often dismissed by others that we trust such as our parents or teachers, and so without fully understanding we give our power away rather than holding what we feel to be true irrespective of what others might say or do and so we lose trust in ourselves and rely on others to tell us what to do and think.

  10. “Perhaps it is as simple as giving ourselves permission to acknowledge and trust what we feel in our body . . . ” Marika that sentence got me as most of us are so good in overriding what we are feeling so your invitation to give ourselves this permission is wonderful. It is beautiful to be curious what would happen then.

  11. Through building a quality of connection with our body we are able to truly discern and feel the truth of energy even when our eyes can fool us and we see something different to what we are feeling, the wisdom of our body always communicates the true picture.

  12. There can be this feeling of wanting to know more or understand more and all along it is in our body where we can find this wisdom.

  13. I often notice how much I check out and distract myself with something or thoughts because I don’t want to feel something I am sensing or I don’t like the way a certain energy feels near me. However I am learning that the best thing is to feel energy for it tells you so much about what is really going on.

    1. Andrew, this is so true – when we do not like what we feel, then distractions can come in very strongly. And yet if we can sit with it and allow ourselves to feel the depths then much is revealed – much that we may not like to feel and ‘see’ but which then supports us with understanding the situation far more.

  14. We all have had the awareness to a lesser or greater extent at sometime or other that what someone has said does not feel true. Giving oneself permission to acknowledge this and then to live and express from that knowing is truly empowering – it is the innocent, innate confidence of a child and is our true nature, not the learnt cultural and societal customs.

  15. I remember not ignoring my understandings of what people were truly saying, regardless of the words they used but I did not know what to do with that knowledge as I mostly reacted to what felt to me to be the dishonesty of people.

  16. We instinctively know the truth because we feel it, even when it makes us feel really uncomfortable we do know the truth and it is then our choice to accept it or not.

  17. Reading and feeling energy is something we all collectively pretend we don’t do, it would be like a social faux pas to mention it directly yet we are all deeply sensitive and constantly sensing. We do have colloquial terms too for it but few are comfortable outrightly stating it. One of the things I’m learning at the moment is to connect to what I’ve sensed and confirm it, confirm my knowing and then develop understanding of what’s going on for the person, etc, around what I’ve sensed. This would have been so supportive in my childhood as I notice if I don’t confirm what’s I’ve sensed I can often get racy, anxious or stressed.

  18. “I just knew what I felt.” What we feel in our body is true but what we think we know in our mind needs thinking about.

  19. We aren’t taught about the fact that this is an energetic world first, before it is physical. The only place where we get taught about energy is in Physics and Chemistry class, but there we don’t get taught what the relationship is with practical life.

  20. There can be so much information in our mind, different versions of what we see whereas in our body there is just one Truth that can be clearly felt. It is always there, deep down inside us.

  21. “but what is felt in energy is always the truth.” And once felt it silences the mind that keeps trying to come up with a ‘logical’ answer which is never truth but a half truth, semi truth or a complete lie.

  22. We know more than we think is so true. If we only rely on our mind then it will always keep us at the knowledge level but when we connect to our body we can access greater intelligence through our body that is universal, multidimensional and divine. The fact that we all can feel energy means we all have access to universal intelligence.

  23. We are living a lie when we say we don’t feel energy because we do feel it all the time. Indeed we feel how someone might not like us or actually like us very much so this actually already proves the fact that we feel energy. It is just that we as a society don’t honor the fact that we do feel energy and then also what this fact means to how we are living together in the world.

  24. It feels like we intentionally have a relationship with the body that is dismissive and very often abusive with what we eat, drink, smoke etc – just so we can stay as an un-knowing all-knowing being. If the body is polluted then what is it communicating and able to receive?

    1. Great question Rachel, we are all knowing beings living in a way that hides and dismisses this fact. There are a plethora of things in this world to choose from to dull us from feeling energy which allows ignorance, irresponsibility and arrogance to run the show.

  25. The words that people say are just the tip of the iceberg of what is truly being communicated and expressed. So we need to constantly read between the lines of what people are saying by paying attention to their tone of voice too, if they are rushing their words…. Then there are the non-verbal cues, the way we move, our posture…. There is so much going on in any one conversation!

  26. Our body and its movements will always reflect the truth of the quality of energy that is fuelling it. When we are willing to deepen our honouring of all we do actually and naturally feel, so too our awareness of knowing what energy is truly being communicated through any body deepens and becomes clearer.

  27. When we start reading energy first, life becomes so much easier. You know exactly what to do, for example at work. Thinking through complex new business strategies? Not necessary anymore. I am convinced that many great business leaders trust on this ability to know energetically what has to be done first. We call that intuition.

  28. It is interesting how much we use our mind to override and dismiss the feelings from our body yet if we acknowledged the truth of what our body is communicating we would empower ourselves to open our awareness and be able to discern with clarity the situations we face so naturally know how to respond. I have come to appreciate the importance of acknowledging the first feeling from my body as this is the truth that the body communicates and responds to.

  29. In our minds we can think anything but our bodies always tell what is truly going on. That is why it is so great to feel our bodies first and not listen to our heads alone.

  30. “The thing is we know a lot… so much more than we may be willing to admit or see about the world and ourselves that our body is communicating every day.” we can be so caught up in our minds that we separate ourselves from our bodies and the divine intelligence that lives within, though at times we choose the energy of the mind, our body still is continuing to communicate to us, at anytime we can choose to listen.

  31. We indeed know so much more.. We have played so small in comparison to the depth of love we know. You only have to look at a baby and see that true love, in the depth that we know, exists. And no matter how far we have gone, this love is instant within us.

  32. The more we confirm that we know all, the more we start to live by all that we know. We start to feel how provided for we truly are, for each moment is offered and waiting for us just to say yes.

  33. Marika, I love how you highlight in your blog the importance of heeding the wisdom of our body as opposed to the heartless knowledge of the mind. The difference being one will lead to living a harmonious life, the other to living a very disharmonious life. The choice is ours as to which one we choose.

  34. It makes life so much easier when we are honest and admit we do know so much, we do know the answers to our problems or issues, we do know when something does not feel right, we all can feel when someone is lying, but it is what we do with this awareness? Mostly we over-ride it, but it is life changing when we begin claiming our awareness and our innate knowing, in other words our clairsentience.

  35. ‘Perhaps it is as simple as giving ourselves permission to acknowledge and trust what we feel in our body – knowing that this will support us to re-connect to the deep well of wisdom that is within us all’. It is that simple.

  36. ” I am reminded that our body knows more than our minds can think! ”
    This is so true for the thinking mind cannot take account of the whole but the body can.

    1. Yes, absolutely Jacqmcfadden04, and we are taught from a young age to hide what we feel and to not express it. This pressure seems to come from our families, society and even our education system but the choice to not feel and not express has to come from us first. So, the permission to express how we feel also comes from us and this can feel very empowering.

  37. The ability to read energy is one of our greatest tools in life, it’s when we just look at the human aspect or the physical world and don’t consider that there is always an energy moving us, that we get into trouble.

  38. Our bodies are forever communicating with us aren’t they?! I wonder where we managed to stop listening and I say ‘we’ on purpose because the rates of illness, disease, depression, obesity, suicide all tell their own story of how far off track we have gone. The way we are living is not loving us back so to step back and ask ourselves if we are listening to the most honest connection we have, that with our body, and if we are honouring what it is sharing with us might be a good place to start to rebuild.

  39. When we express from this “deep well of wisdom” that is naturally ours, we are expressing from the whole of our body and the truth is deeply felt by others. In stark contrast when we simply speak from our mind, from the knowledge we have acquired and the beliefs we have taken on, it is obvious there is no connection to the body at all. How amazing it would be to support our young ones to stay connected to their innate wisdom so as they grow the intelligence of their body is what they listen to and live by.

  40. Why do we call it knowing (no-ing) it should be called yessing because when we say yes to our knowing our whole life is transformed. Maybe it is called knowing because so few of us say yes to it so the bigger question is if we already know everything why do we avoid saying yes to that!

    1. So true Nicola. Everything is already there, all the answers, the only thing we have to do is lift our blocks to receiving it.

  41. Knowing is not time related – it comes from a totally different place and space than thinking and simply is. We might think we know but with knowing we know we know and there is no thinking about it!

  42. I love your ..”the truth is” list. When I read down it I have to admit that each one is true, and yet we all live as if it isn’t true and we don’t know these things. Makes you wonder just what kind of a silly game we are all playing, when we all know so much truth but ignore it in favour of a lie. You could say that it makes no sense, but that doesn’t get to the bottom of it. Studying the Ageless Wisdom allows us to understand and deconstruct what is occurring to expose what and why we are doing what we are doing.

  43. Yes we know much more than we admit and we even know we know it. When you write something like this everyone knows it and can relate to it. So why do we say no to what we know!

      1. Maybe because we are saying no rather than yes although no is actually a yes to no and there is no no.
