Re-Connecting to Universal Intelligence

This morning on my walk, as I was heading up the hill, I started to feel a little strained in my muscles and light-headed. I then naturally backed off and slowed down. Then a few moments later, I paused to reflect and appreciate what I had just chosen.

My incentive in the past when going on a walk consisted of the idea to get fit and often I’d have been driven to power and push through with this goal in mind. In doing this I was pushing through the limits of what my body was capable of and actually making myself exhausted and physically doing a bit of damage on some level. What’s intelligent about any of that?

This morning on my walk however, I was listening to the signals my body was giving me, which was that I absolutely needed movement and activity, but gentle movement and activity.

So as I continued on my walk, the appreciation was of the connection I have built over the years listening to my body and what it is saying. This to me is connecting to whole body intelligence – an understanding that the body knows what it needs, greater than any advice or research finding.

When I listen to my body and the messages, intelligence and wisdom it has to offer, I sense I am connecting to a grander picture of where that source of intelligence is coming from. Yes, it is me who is feeling it, but that intelligence is re-connecting to something which is universal.

I can see nature connects to this too. For example, I’ve always marveled at how a flock of migrating birds always has a certain formation with a lead bird at the front. When that bird needs to rest, another will replace it – and at the same time one falls back, another comes forward. How do they communicate that? – there’s no mobiles or two-way radios – but the message is communicated. It is this same source of intelligence humans have access to also.

Another way to demonstrate this is through my job, which is teaching. I completed the teaching component of my degree twenty-five years after studying the content of the subject. So when I first came to teaching, catching up on all the content felt overwhelming and I was almost overtaken with the anxiety of feeling not good enough or knowing enough.

But then I began to discover in many teaching moments that I would present some amazing info, which surprised me and I would think, where did that come from, how do I know that? It appeared I actually innately knew an awful lot about what I taught. The content of this delivery was not so much the recall of dates or names but would be of a deep and profound wisdom, always relating to the subject and content. I find students listen more intently when I speak from this perspective, and my whole voice and body feels like it is speaking from authority – whereas when I recall dates and people or read from a book, it is not as engaging for the students and my voice sounds different. I still need to learn and know the dates, figures, texts and grammar, but overall I naturally am able to convey the deep understandings which are required within all the teaching units – and within these teachings are some of the truest and most intelligent offerings my teaching has to deliver. So I began to learn to trust and surrender to the anxiety and teaching started to become far more enjoyable, as it became a natural expression.

How often do we give our power over to information and research; to institutions?

There is incredible intelligence in our bodies: no effort, professors, subscriptions or library cards needed – just a connection and a willingness to listen.

As I have deepened my connection with my body, and the relationship with my innate knowing and intelligence, I have experienced some profound effects in my life.

One of them is my inner confidence. I now know that if I feel something, it is valid and I listen. Trusting myself has had a profound impact on my self-confidence and the quality of how I feel towards myself has helped me to actually value, like and love me – and I now validate myself continuously by honoring what I feel. This has brought about a very precious and loving self-relationship that is sacred to me and delivers me a true inner confidence.

I feel equipped and have reduced anxiety as I trust my body will deliver me all I need as I walk through the many scenarios and situations in my life. Compared to the anxiousness and doubt with which I used to lead my life, this universal, whole body intelligence I am connecting to, feels amazing.

  1. Given we are never not connected to everything, for everything is interconnected, allows a discussion on what is possible in terms of intelligence and understanding the universe far beyond what we may currently conceive…

  2. We tend to identify intelligence outwardly. This is so because we apply it mainly to the outside world. Yet, what about us? What about how we use our intelligence regarding us? Can we say to be intelligent when we do not apply it regarding our body and our being? Intelligence is a circular movement even if we try to make it a straight line.

  3. Trusting ourselves more and more as we allow ourselves to feel what is going on in our bodies makes a huge difference to our lives, we become more confident in our ability to handle whatever life throws at us.

    1. I agree Carmel trusting ourselves allows us to feel what is going on in our body. and we become more confident in our ability to handle whatever life throws at us.

  4. It is great when the body speaks and we automatically listen and adhere to this, super loving and super supportive. And it is also you have confirmed that we innately know about many things when we allow ourselves to truly express this from the body and not through recall. It is also great to hear how truly trusting yourself has had a profound impact with your self-confidence and reduced anxiety .. we can learn a lot from just this alone.

  5. ‘I now know that if I feel something, it is valid and I listen. Trusting myself has had a profound impact on my self-confidence and the quality of how I feel towards myself has helped me to actually value, like and love me – and I now validate myself continuously by honoring what I feel. ‘With this awareness we can’t be fooled in life.

  6. Listening to the body and following the body with its true movements in every moment is a marker of the joy and simplicity we can live yet often bring complications and sabotage the potential. The universal intelligence is waiting to be tapped into.

  7. My body is teaching me about drive and the push to get things done and as you say Gina this puts a strain on the body which leads to exhaustion as the body is having to work hard to keep up.
    My body is showing me that there is another way, and that is to actually be with me in everything I do and that way there is no leakage of energy and so there is a possibility to do more and actually feel less tired.

  8. As a student i brought once a family member to a workshop of Serge Benhayon.
    It was beautiful what she expressed. She shared how she never hurt somebody presenting in a way that touches the knowing in the body instead of the mind.
    This is very very true. That is why i fell in love with the teachings Serge delivered from day one and this stayed like that. Such a blessing to receive those teachings activating the truth in our own bodies again.

  9. “How often do we give our power over to information and research; to institutions?” the answer is too often and one of the reasons the world in currently in such a mess.

  10. Who would have thought that our body had all the wisdom of the universe and yet it is our body that we often treat with such disdain, indifference, loathing, dismissal and denial. How different life will be when we begin to honour our body, and to listen to the wisdom that is never-not pouring forth.

  11. Gina you have shared so much in just this small piece of writing and what you have shared is very valid particularly in a world where currently there is a lot of anxiousness, lack of self-worth, self-esteem and true body confidence. So how on earth do we turn this around to have true self-worth, self-esteem and body confidence? It is just how you have expressed and a perfect example you have given during your morning walk. To stop and acknowledge the body feels stressed or pushed, that something does not feel right, and change your movements to then change all of this. WOW so simple! And the more we start to do this, consistently so, stopping or acknowledging when something does not feel right … like this morning reading your blog I could feel my breath felt really shallow in my body and not fully/truly coming from me so noted it and could then feel it change, the more we can let go of all that we are not and start to claim, within our body who we truly are. The teachings and steady living example of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine has supported me and hundreds if not thousands of others to do this .. start to reconnect to who we truly are and discard all that we are not. And yes, recall is empty and loveless. Just one more thing! I love what you shared about the marvel of nature in how with a flock of birds one leads and if tired falls back to let another lead … pure harmony in motion. No mobiles phones needed. It would be great if we stopped destroying nature and instead learnt from it ✨

  12. ” I now know that if I feel something, it is valid and I listen. Trusting myself has had a profound impact on my self-confidence and the quality of how I feel towards myself has helped me to actually value, like and love me – and I now validate myself continuously by honoring what I feel. ” I don’t always listen to my body because i am caught up in my head, I love what you have shared here Gina, the universal intelligence that flows through us when we are in connection to our bodies and what we are feeling.

  13. “How often do we give our power over to information and research; to institutions?” I have recently undertaken study again and felt a great sense of overwhelm from all the information found in my textbooks, but when it comes to completing my work I find I am able to share and connect with my own inner wisdom from my body and my own life experiences that far outweighs the knowledge found in the textbooks. I also find my overwhelm then dissipates as I am moving from universal intelligence and not tension and stress to find the answer.

  14. Amazing – a never-ending intelligence within that we need only connect to for access… to accept such magnificence is to accept ourselves fully.

  15. Connecting with our body in this way is so beautiful… It is the doorway to a whole world of trusting and surrendering , not to anything outside us, but to that profoundly beautiful wisdom that is inside each and everyone of us.
