Universal Medicine is toxic to childrenPosted: February 7, 2014
Serge Benhayon’s sexually explicit rants and his exorcism stage act are harmful enough to children without his damaging anti-family brainwashing. Within the messiah’s perverse occult philosophy is the recipe for shattering families, and the sickest teachings are arguably his pronouncements on the female body, rhetorically assaulting the physical bonds between mothers and babies. On top of being subjected to harmful practices, Universal Medicine cult children are deprived of nurturing and responsible parenting in the name of ‘healing’ and ‘self-love’.

Destruction of families
Many of our readers know well how allegiance to Universal Medicine takes primacy over all other relationships, and blind devotion sees followers subjecting their kids to a range of exploitations and abuses, as listed in the post on Serge Benhayon’s inappropriate behaviours with children. However, there wasn’t room in that post to examine the teachings that facilitate toxic parenting.
Benhayon seeks to monopolize the devotion of followers, and like many cult leaders, he doesn’t draw the line at separating parents from children. In some cults it’s done by removing children into creches or boarding schools, but in UM, while familial engagement is reduced by parents’ increasing commitment to UM activities, children suffer most from the loss of quality engagement when the family member follows the guru’s instructions for shutting down their essential humanity.
Encouraged to reject their own families, followers’ investment in UM is framed as the acquisition of ‘in truth’ ‘love’ and a new family of ‘Brothers’ and ‘Sons of God’. Benhayon’s antisocial teachings make healthy and harmonious relationships impossible and ensure followers are only able to relate to others adhering to the same oppressive regime – shallowly at that.
Twisted teachings – emotionless self-love and neglected children
The Esoteric Relationships post looked at Serge’s sociopathic view that expressing emotion is a sign of weakness, and that love must be void of emotion to be ‘true’.
Love is not emotional; it is an emanating presence that has not one ounce of emotion in it, but the emanating aspect of the joy and harmony that is God. (Benhayon, 2006, p.26)
The punishment is disease and possibly death.
Be well reminded that all disease and illness comes from emotions. (Benhayon, 2007, p. 421)
He tells us emotional needs are symptomatic of an underlying disorder of the soul.
The separation to self creates the emotional clinging we have to others. This is not union or connection in-truth. It is attachment driven by needs. The need is to fill the emptiness and so we impose on others to give us what we refuse to give to ourselves – self love. (Benhayon, 2007, p.395)
Children are thus also supposed to psychologically sustain themselves on self-love.
There are far too many spiritual based constructs making up what is known as motherhood and fatherhood. They make parenting a box-ticking exercise. Learn to love yourself in full, and that love will parent your children like no other parenting can. (Benhayon, 2011, p.474)
If you love your children with and from emotional love, you are just passing down to another generation a form of love that has not ever worked. (Benhayon, 2011, p.693)
The degradation of empathy – a sentiment essential to meaningful connection with others has left many of us stunned by the callous, self serving behaviour of loved ones who were once warm, sociable and caring people. Followers are held to ransom by demented platitudes.
Sympathy and empathy are both emotions. Emotions are poisonous to our physical body, for they are indulgent energies that help the spirit individualise. (Benhayon, 2011, p. 283)
The Esoteric Feminism post looked briefly at Benhayon’s jaundiced ideas on motherhood, which deliberately seek to alienate mothers from their babies. Benhayon does not teach that motherhood, with it’s full range of emotional expression, is a positive and developmental experience for both mother and child. Instead he suggests caring for children necessitates mothers sacrifice self nurturing, and follows with the atrocious suggestion that a lack of self centredness leads to the development of cancer.
Lack of self-nurturing is now a significant global problem and in particular for women, as it is the actual energetic cause of breast cancer and its ill rise in our societies everywhere. (Benhayon, 2011, p.518)
He says that caring for a baby has to be done at the expense of one’s connection with self. Again, the consequences are dire, and magically lead to health disorders.
After giving birth, the connection a woman has had with her femaleness leaves unless, of course, she has her own connection to her self. Post natal depression is the disconnection of the femaleness that was there only because of the pregnancy and not from her choice to be in femaleness. (Benhayon, 2011, p.525)
When a woman does not have her periods for many months after giving birth, it is because she has put all her focus on mothering and disregarded herself as a woman. (Benhayon, 2011, p.520)
Babies are expected to survive on the self-love emanating from self involved parents, who shut themselves down so they can love without emotion.
We have been confusing love for a baby with the enormous need they have of us. Too many foster that need so that the dependency keeps them needed as the child grows. This is not love – it is a form of control that is used to cover up for the adult who was not shown true love when they were young. (Benhayon, 2011, p.693)
Once mothers have been set with the impossible task of denying the emotional requirements of themselves and their babies, Benhayon then sabotages physical bonds, degrading breasts and reproductive organs as little more than focal locations for emotionally generated disease.
There is an enormous energetic difference between breastfeeding a child and just hooking them onto the breast to feed. Breastfeeding is first and foremost a nurturing act, a deeply established loving connection the child feels well before it is a nourishment its body needs. And if one is just ‘feeding’ as a function, what message or feelings does the child feel? (Benhayon, 2011, p. 520)
Babies can feel the emotions in mothers milk which may cause them to choke on it. (Esoteric Development Group lecture notes taken by Michael Dixon, February 19, 2011)
It’s little wonder readers have told us cult mothers have grown increasingly depressed while breastfeeding – hurriedly, and no doubt prematurely, weaning babies – in spite of famous paediatrician, Dr Howard Chilton’s glowing endorsements of Serge. Perhaps Dr Chilton can explain how a mother goes about nurturing and loving without emotion. And once she is suitably repressed, how she succeeds in feeding a child emotionlessly without it feeling like nothing more than a ‘function’.
Pompous half wit.
The confusion instilled by that rot forms part of the marketing of Esoteric Breast Massage.
If there is no nurturing energy in the breasts the baby suckling will receive the milk, but will not get the nurturing energy. All is energy, and if the breasts are not clear when the baby is feeding, the baby will also receive the ill-energy that is in the breasts. This aspect is revelatory and unique to this process. Put simply, we now have a true choice about the actual quality of our feeding milk. (Original Esoteric Breast Massage Site, erased when media scrutiny commmenced.)
Like all Esoteric Women’s Health abuses, EBM’s body negative, sexist programming brainwashes women to fixate on self-loving choices and ‘clearing’ their polluted bodies, while their children’s needs go to hell. It’s an Esoteric marketing triumph, wresting the allegiance of followers from their dependents into an expensive therapy habit – maximising their emotional and financial investment in UM.
Creating interpersonal havoc
Idiotic sexist stereotypes and other damaging platitudes, as discussed in the Esoteric Parenting post, are designed to strain familial relationships to breaking point. Universal Law solicitors are on stand by to help with the divorce and property settlements, freeing up assets to be spent on or donated to UM.
Mothers attempt to make their young sons all that is lacking in and from their husbands/partners. This is one of the first forms of rejection for the yet to be man. (Benhayon, 2011, p.558)
A man identifies with his physical strength at a very early age. If this does not work, he will escape into his mind not long thereafter and use that as his strength. We ought to let our young boys feel who they truly are and NOT tell them what they need to be. (Benhayon, 2011, p.560)
Understand that men have a long way to heal and recover who they truly are. But you women be patient, for it is you who have allowed him to stray that far by accepting anything less than true love. (Benhayon, 2011, p.563)
The more problems we have with our partner, the more we tend to emotionally love our kids. Ponder on this before you recoil from it’s truth. (Benhayon, 2011, p. 384)
Misrepresenting children as a licence for neglect
While adults are infantilized in UM, children are portrayed as having superior levels of intuition. Their emotional and other developmental requirements are thus downplayed, which gives cult members permission for disengaged parenting.
Children do not need clairsentience to be taught, just enhanced…
Young children naturally live by it. Children just know it; they just don’t get asked or are not encouraged or are not acknowledged by it. They live in the connection of the interconnectedness until the current system and our current way of life stops supporting what they know to be a natural truth…the adults sustaining this separative way of existing were once the children that only knew the livingness of one. (Benhayon, 2007, pp. 368-371)
Finally, the following exchange illustrates a range of Benhayon’s prejudices – his rigidly distorted definition of ‘love’, his deification of childhood naivety, his enmity to education and fact based truth, his insistence on placing intuition at odds with thinking sensibly, and his fixation with paedophilia. His followers regard him as the ‘voice from heaven for our times’.
SERGE: …So self love is an easy thing to do if the firm determination is there to only think, feel and experience the energy of love and self love. When the firm determination is there to do that then, there is no opening left for the outer to intrude and cause YOU a disturbance.
DS: It’s common sense but our education took us away from this.
SERGE: The influences keep us from the simple truth.
DS: It comes down to our intuition doesn’t it.
SERGE: The proof of that is the fact that the first five years of our life we are exclusively clair- sentient and we do not intellectualize anything, unless of course we are tampered with sexually or things like that. Kids are clairsentient, which means been aware of feelings. We teach them to think from the head -when they are trying to communicate instead of from the heart. (Interview D.Simpson, Serge Benhayon, May 2004, p.10 )
Universal Medicine’s ‘healthy self-loving choices’ are nothing more than a formula for followers to become emotionally stunted, self obsessed sycophants. Benhayon’s teachings ensure nothing comes between them and their investment in the entranced dehumanization of the Livingness Death Package.
Least of all their kids.
