Raphael & Karam v Rockett update –  recent ruling in Queensland proceedings

Updating from last month, on June 23 the Qld district court heard two applications brought by Caroline Raphael and Ray Karam. An application to strike out a large portion of my contextual truth defence and an application for costs.

The contextual truth defence is just one of five defences I am pleading in the Queensland proceedings. It was worth contesting, but even if they’d been successful, I have four further defences I could use for the publications – one of which is the truth defence. I have pleaded and will take evidence that all my statements are substantially true, therefore no defamation has occurred.

Raphael and Karam, represented by Paula Fletcher of Universal Law solicitors and UM’s barrister, Charles Wilson had originally listed 6 applications for hearing but abandoned four in the days before we appeared on 23 June.

On 10 August Judge Ryrie handed down her decision. Team UM had a partial win. They succeeded in striking out 7 out of 46 contextual imputations, but I managed to keep the rest. The strike-out of those 7 will make very little difference to my defence. UM also applied for costs for the four other applications they listed and were awarded none.

Her Honour also refused to hear over half their contextual truth argument. The majority of their claim arose from an email I sent to Ballina councillors. The plaintiffs claim it was read by one person, the Ballina Mayor, David Wright. Because the email was ‘wholly published’ in NSW, Her Honour ruled that the Queensland District Court has no jurisdiction to hear it (under section 11 of the Defamation Act of Queensland). The Qld court only has jurisdiction if something is published in Queensland.

Jurisdiction of Qld

We argued something similar in February without success. We argued that the whole claim was improperly filed in Queensland. However, Her Honour came at it from a different angle. The tweets were read by people in Qld, according to UM, but not the email. Her remarks included that it was not evident from the February ruling that the judge ‘accepted, even though he has dismissed the defendant’s application, that the whole matter was properly pleaded.’ Her Honour maintains that bringing the email before the Queensland court is a ‘defective pleading’.


I’d call that a Pyrrhic victory for UM – it was more like a loss. For our side, given the type of interlocutory applications UM made and the way the proceedings have been conducted so far, we’re satisfied that we successfully defended two applications to strike out major parts of the defence. An application to strike-out parts of the truth defence was one of those abandoned by Team UM the day before the hearing.

In other words, Team UM busted their boilers spamming me with legal demands for three months pretty much for nothing. As I pointed out in previous updates, they knew I was under court orders in NSW to do some very time consuming work, yet Paula Fletcher of Universal Law persisted in making legal demands that were simply impossible to deliver, accompanied by threats to seek court orders. Team UM filed and listed the 5 May hearing without negotiating a mutually suitable time for counsel to appear, and I had to appear on two days notice and represent myself, while attempting to comply with court orders issued in another state. In spite of the judge’s remarks at that hearing, Team UM carried on with more of the same until the June hearing. All they managed to achieve was to create work for themselves in writing unnecessary letters and filing unnecessary applications – that amounted to nothing.

Her Honour’s judgment is not publicly available. It was an oral ruling and we received a transcripted copy. I’m only able to quote small portions due to strict copyright around documents produced by the court.

Her Honour’s remarks about her decisions regarding costs indicate she had viewed all the evidence about the conduct of the proceedings . For example, UM complained I made one ‘churlish’ reply to one of Fletcher’s two dozen or so overheated letters. Her Honour agreed ‘churlish’ may be a correct interpretation. However, she acknowledged I had fulfilled the requests. I just hadn’t done so within the time frames Fletcher demanded. In refusing to award costs to Raphael and Karam in that instance, she said ‘the amount of the particulars that was requested at the time it was, coupled with the ‘agitation’ of [Fletcher’s] letter of the 7th of June… clearly shows that the Defendant was saying she simply needed more time to get it done. Clearly she did.

In another instance Her Honour refused to award them costs for one of their abandoned applications because it ‘has to be looked at in the context of this case, where the defendant was self-represented, [and] has in fact also managed to answer that application as well at short notice, one not flagged in front of Judge Everson‘.

Team UM even applied for an award of costs for one of their errors. ‘…no costs should be awarded against the defendant simply because there was an oversight by the plaintiffs in respect of it. Therefore, no order as to costs.

What’s next in Queensland?

For those of you asking, we shall see. It depends how Team UM reacts. And reactive they are. Their claim is now limited to six tweets. All this trouble and expense for six tweets. And according to the plaintiffs, the only people who read them are a few UM associates who are on the record before and since calling me a liar and a troll. They don’t have a claim if there’s no evidence of damages arising from those four tweets. What they feel from their innermosts to be damages is not admissable evidence.

Dear me.

Apart from striking out the seven contextual imputations my defence won’t change. If anything I’ll add to it with Karam’s advocacy for UM about the Converys Lane DA, and the public statements from Alison Greig about Caroline Raphael’s interactions with the NSW Psychology Council. There’s also the problem of UM’s legal representatives being witness to matters in issue in the proceedings, which is a conflict of interest. In other words, their claim is headed where it was always going. Nowhere. Just more resolutely.

No matter what they try next, we have a plan – a solid legal strategy. There’s always a plan. And it’s possible a QC will appear for me at the next hearing.

Benhayon v Rockett update – NSW Supreme Court

Trial date from 3 September 2018

A trial date for Benhayon v Rockett has been set down in the Supreme Court, Sydney for three weeks from 3 September 2018 – a year from now.

Both sides had asked for a trial of four to six weeks, seeing Benhayon made such an expanded claim and I filed a comprehensive defence of truth to meet it. There is a ton of evidence to get through, and of course I have a right to bring a full defence. However, as I’ve said before, the courts don’t want these kinds of proceedings eating up masses of resources. Justice McCallum ruled on the trial date and length of trial in June, and the decision has been published online. From Her Honour’s decision:

DEFAMATION – Civil Procedure Act 2005 (NSW), s 62(3) – where parties’ estimate for length of trial disproportionate to the interest at stake – power to limit the time that may be taken by the hearing…

Having regard to the fact that each of the parties is an individual and mindful of the likely cost of a hearing of that length …

…I do not think this Court can on any analysis warrant the allocation of a period of up to six weeks for a hearing of this kind. Were the hearing to take that long, the costs would inevitably be vastly disproportionate to the interest at stake, bearing in mind the cap on general damages under the Defamation Act 2005 (NSW), being $389,500. Caselaw NSW

When Her Honour remarks ‘each of the parties is an individual’ I believe she’s making a distinction between defamation claims against big media companies where the extent of publication is large, and damage to reputation is correspondingly large.

I don’t think the limited time for trial is any impediment to my defence. It will just mean that we will give evidence in a more efficient way, and really, a lot of my defence is in the form of documents anyway – many of them published by his nibs himself. Judge and/or jury will have a lot of reading to do – or listening. As one of my defence barristers said to me a while back, ‘just play that audio‘. Now we have video as well.

Does UM get what defamation is?

Judging by commentary from the congregation, UM appears to still believe they can sue people for saying stuff they don’t like. On the Astral Plane it’s much more difficult to succeed in a defamation action than that.

So this is a good time to remind UM – who are diligently copying every word I write, so they can scurry behind the fortress and bitch about us in the safety and comfort of their airless ‘community’ – defamation proceedings are not criminal proceedings. It’s a civil action. The plaintiffs are claiming I have damaged their reputations with statements I’ve published about their public conduct. If the statements I made are found to be substantially true, or they are opinions or comments based on stuff the plaintiffs actually said or did, there is no defamation. According to the law, a person’s reputation can’t be damaged by statements about conduct that is disreputable. The person behaving disreputably has done any damage themselves.

I am not on trial for ‘trolling’ or ‘criminality’. I can’t be ‘removed from society‘ by a defamation action. The law allows all of us to publish statements people don’t like, and it’s important that it does – otherwise corruption and lousy behaviour go unchecked. UM is permitted under the law to publish their mad ravings, just as we’re permitted to throw off at them. It’s when people publish damaging falsehoods about a person that they become legally liable for damages.

Defamation law was established to protect reputation from false allegations. That’s all. It allows free speech, particularly on matters of interest to the public. The Esoteric Sons of God continue to label me a liar, but I’m taking to court documents and witnesses to prove the truth of all the allegedly defamatory imputations. UM, however, have no documents or witnesses to prove the allegations they’ve made about us. Evidence to be put before the court will show this.

Discovery – Serge in resistance part two

Last month I updated on Benhayon’s resistance to complying with court orders requiring him to disclose and make available all documents relevant to facts in issue in the proceedings.

During the time Paula Fletcher was giving me ‘agitation’ for being unable to keep up with her unreasonable demands in the Queensland proceedings, I gave discovery of 2,400 documents and provided 65 pages of answers to interrogatories. I might have been late, but I fulfilled my obligations two and half months ago. In contrast, five months after the court orders were made, Benhayon is yet to disclose all documents under the orders. I’ve had to write two lengthy letters twice spelling out the civil procedure rules to the legal professionals who represent him, and nominating a large amount of documents that he has omitted. There’s no excuse for omissions when he is required to give discovery of documents that are kept or stored by the people running his operation. It will not be accepted by the court if he claims he or his staff have misplaced or destroyed documents relevant to facts in issue, particularly operational and official matters. Of the documents I’ve received so far, some have been edited, and someone has simply taken a black marker pen and blacked out large amounts of information without explanation or notice to me in others. It’s not on.

Remember Benhayon’s statement from June 2014?

“There is nothing like shutting down lies by allowing full transparency into one’s affairs. This I have done in every case and in every one of their accusations. 

Had I taken the legal route, an easy win on all counts, I would then be accused of using wealth to shut down my detractors. Hence, and instead, it has been wiser to welcome the investigations and actually assist them to go further.

As I knew would be the case, every investigation has revealed a completely transparent, highly ethical outfit, and we have ended up receiving very positive feedback from the Government agencies concerned. UM website 

Well, this is Serge’s chance to demonstrate publicly, through the courts, via proceedings he himself instigated, ‘full transparency’ and assist us with the investigations he says he welcomes. After all, his legal claim alleges reputational damage. He has to therefore show the court that he is reputable, and that his public statements are true. He needs to demonstrate he is credible.

Watch this space for further updates on the discovery tug of war, and some Esoteric revelations about other irregularities in the proceedings so far.

For now I’ll leave you with a couple of gems from Paula Fletcher’s long list of excuses:

We are instructed that there are no documents recording communications with or about Judith McIntyre and the McIntyre estate, gift and bequest.

No documents that concern the woman who gave and bequeathed Serge $1.4m? He’s deleted his emails he reckons. In loving memory…

And this response to my first reminder of his obligations for disclosure. Benhayon was founding director of the College. He resigned directorship in August 2012:

Our client is currently making a search for documents recording the receipt of gifts or contributions to himself or his interests or accounting for the use of such gifts and will include any such documents (if extant and in his possession) in the amended list of documents, noting that, as regards College of Universal Medicine, documents in his possession do not include ‘financial records’ by operation of s 198F of the Corporations Act 2001.

Funny how section 198F of the Corporations Act says the opposite. Paula. See paragraphs 2-5. ‘A person who has ceased to be a director of a company may inspect the books of the company (including its financial records) at all reasonable times for the purposes of a legal proceeding…This right continues for 7 years after the person ceased to be a director of the company.’ The right extends to copying the documents.

None of this will look particularly Glorious in court, and if UM are looking to drive their claims into the ditch, they’re going about it the right way.

Stay tuned.

Background of claims

Benhayon v Rockett

November 2015, Benhayon filed his claim in NSW Supreme Court Sydney for ‘aggravated damages’ for a blog post I wrote November 2014, three comments I made on that blog and one tweet.

Benhayon’s legal team consists of his in house solicitors, Universal Law of Mullumbimby, with a respected Sydney Senior Counsel (SC). Last year Benhayon applied to have my contextual truth defence struck out. After an argument at hearing in May by Mr Matthew Richardson, his application was refused. Read the decision on the NSW Caselaw site.

September 2016 Benhayon escalated the claim, tripling its size. Mr Tom Molomby SC joined my legal team and we filed a full, 95 page defence at the end of November. We are now in the process of giving discovery of documents. Benhayon is yet to answer interrogatories.

A trial date has been set for 3 September 2018 for three weeks.

Raphael and Karam v Rockett claim background

On 22 December 2016, two close associates of Serge Benhayon filed a defamation claim against me in Queensland District Court, Brisbane. Caroline Raphael is a psychologist who works with Benhayon at Universal Medicine’s Goonellabah headquarters. Ray Karam is a small business owner who describes Benhayon as a ‘brother’ and ‘best friend’. Karam ran for a seat on Ballina Shire Council and for Mayor of Ballina last year.

Ray and Caroline are suing me for an email read by Karam’s friend, David Wright, Mayor of Ballina, plus six tweets. They are represented by Universal Law solicitors and UM’s in house barrister and College of UM charity director Charles Wilson.

I filed a 157 page full defence on 24 March. As detailed above, UM suceeded in striking out 7 of 46 contextual imputations at hearing in June.

Defence logistics & funding

I am representing in person (without a solicitor) in both states. I exhausted all my own funds in defending the Benhayon proceedings. I am, however, represented by very high calibre counsel, Mr Tom Molomby SC and Ms Louise Goodchild, and as I updated last month, a QC and his junior colleague in Queensland have accepted the brief. They know I have no funds and no assets and can’t pay legal bills. They will charge their fees at the end of proceedings, and take their fees from any award of costs.

Some other barristers have also shown interest and are willing to pitch in if needed on the same or similar terms.

I’m determined to get my defences a fair hearing, and so is my legal team. The court will comprehensively examine a vast range of UM’s misconduct, which is what all of us want. Serge is on the record saying he welcomes a full investigation of his operations.

I have some of the best legal representation money can buy and I’m no longer paying legal fees. Please let that sink in.

This is our shot. We cannot afford to lose this opportunity. I’m working full time on my defences with no income. I need public support to keep me alive, fed, and with a roof over my head while I continue this fight. I’m hoping to get back to work as soon as possible, and I intend to apply to the court in Qld to allow me time to do so. A lot of people have been adversely affected, and a lot more will be if UM is not exposed. A lot of people complain bitterly about UM, but relatively few have helped support my defence. If I’m made homeless, it could cause further delay and make getting full defences to court a lot more difficult. Please contribute!

  1. Also against snake oil salesman says:

    Seems to me like any loophole they are looking for turns into a noose.
    That’s what happens when you have conflicting interests and the person you are defending is not at arms length from you.
    Resigning from a company doesn’t releive you of responsibility or it appears access to financial records which you claim you don’t have.
    And you have the balls to incorrectly cite part of corporation act.
    This same part is the one that sinks your argument.
    Brilliant work
    Your skills in law are on show here as are your selective interpretation skills, muddied as they are.

  2. Esther says:

    Thank you Against Snake Oil.

    For the record, if it comes to that, homelessness won’t stop me from getting full defences to trial, or from blogging. It will make things more difficult for me but I did not get this far to concede to these people. This is the most exposed Serge has ever been, and it will get worse for him. The Queensland proceedings will expose him nearly as much as the NSW. The info available in the public domain is problem enough for his reputation. He admits to his unpopularity in audio recordings. The back of house documents are the icing.

    Haven’t decided whether I’ll make an update video this time. Remember last unofficial update, I’m practically horizontal by the end of it lol.

    By the way, keep an eye on this post. There are other irregular occurrences in the proceedings so far. Some I’ve been sitting on for a while. I will be outing them.

    • Tim says:

      I have never understood why Ray Karam and Caroline Raphael choose to set legal proceedings in Qld in the first place? Perhaps they were weary of the local Northern Rivers attention that could be received if a local court handled the case?

      Your spirit is amazing. Keep up the good work Esther!

      • Focus on the wild card - delay tactics. says:

        Tim – It was [past tense] evidently to be a distraction – from the Sydney case, by the ever hopeful and intelligent second to none off the Richter scale UM legal team.

        Really and truly all it is – is another hopeful delay tactic disguised.

        Delay tactics are the ONLY wild card UM THINKS it has.

        You have a BASIC right Esther to live and work and play and breathe a normal life with time out from the UM crap and the legal shenanigans.

        These Judges show the real situation. Waste of time.

        Your spirit is amazing. Keep up the good work Esther!


        Claim what is your legal right the right of everyone.

      • Esther says:

        Thanks Tim. It’s a good question. To be fair, the local district courts like Lismore don’t hear defamation cases. Defo cases are a major drain on courts. To be in correct jurisdiction UM should have taken the claim to Sydney District court.

        But of course they didn’t want to do that, because that’s where my (original) legal team is. Looking at the timing – filing a new and very weak claim when the Benhayon discovery was looming looks a lot like they gambled I wouldn’t defend it in Qld, and gambled I wouldn’t find more legal help. Looks like they thought my legal team would abandon me. The opposite happened. I got more help.

        Team UM seemed genuinely shocked when they sprung that hearing on me at short notice and I told the court – as I had already told them several times – that I have Senior Counsel representing me. They assumed I was lying. Charlie got on the blower and called Mr Molomby SC to check.

        Blow me down Charlie. The ‘troll’ has help. I filed a 157 page defence and Team UM didn’t twig. Geniuses! Made Mr M chuckle.

        How many QCs have offered to assist your clients’ defo claims on a contingent basis Charlie?

        • Charlie Brown.............nose💩 says:

          Thats a classic isnt it!
          Charlie getting on the blower to check that Esther isnt lying about her legal team
          This is because over at UM lying is the norm and the truth is very hard to find

  5. 5 months zzzzzzzzz👽 says:

    5 months might not seem long for those with reincarnations but…
    Thats about one and seven tenths times as long as the first spaceflight, ( not counting Serge) Sputnik, which was launched from Kazakhstan in 1957. Sputnik was the first satellite placed in orbit around the earth where it travelled 70,000,000 kms ( about the same amount in $ Serge is aiming for in property ownership)
    and it completed an orbit of the planet every 0.0022 months without landing (like Serge did)

    • Esther 🚀 says:

      Now to be fair, there are a lot of documents to hand over – or there should be. Five months is still too long and I’ve just been told they’re running late with the next batch, which should be the final one, but won’t be. The people who were on my case to comply with massive concurrent demands under impossible deadlines which Her Honour said ‘a lawyer would struggle with’ are now begging for more time.

      In a three month period I filed a massive defence, indexed and produced around 3,200 documents for two cases, gave 65 pages of sworn answers to interrogatories, 50 or something pages of further and better particulars, staved off two strike out applications and answered dozens of error ridden letters from her ladyship.

      And it’s Serge needs to hand them over. Paula’s just the ‘not on anyone’s payroll actually’ help. You had one job, Serge. Five months. And you reckon you’ve been preparing for litigation since 2012.

  6. Craig Roberts says:

    It appears that Benhayon not only lacks the strength of his own convictions, but lacks the courage to follow through with his own threats, I know what the court will say, you know what the court will say and he knows what the courts will say, and he does not want to hear it.
    He made a huge mistake and the only way out is to back down, don’t let him off the hook Esther
    reel him in and hang him out to dry.

  7. Pranic Attack says:

    On the positive you will likely be able to find a new career in law after all this is over. You should come highly recommended by those in the legal profession (QC;s even) and those of us here who have followed your perseverance to help others caught up in this scam. No doubt there will be much media interest in the case. Lets hope that a win in court will expose Universal Medicine for the damaging org that it is and see its leader and his elite band sent on a reality trip back to wherever they came from.

  8. Pranic Pussy 😸 says:

  9. Purgio Sergio says:

    “We are instructed that there are no documents recording communications with or about Judith McIntyre and the McIntyre estate, gift and bequest.”

    Really?! You’re right this doesn’t look good, in fact it looks fucking terrible. A donation of that size would of created a ream of paperwork in its setting up. Where has it all gone I wonder? Is that the sound of shredders I hear? Lol. The hearing last year about this bequest must surely have its own paper trail. That may be a good place to start looking Paula…

    • Anonymous says:

      Yea I mean all that evidence that supported his claim that he should get what judith said he should?
      Is that gone too?

      • Esther says:

        It’s more complicated than that. Sorry, it’s a bit hard to explain all the technicalities. Serge has been ordered to disclose (in a list) and give over documents in about 160 categories. The ‘communications’ described above are one category, or part of one category. Nevertheless, it’s a pretty significant deficiency and raises very serious questions about why there are ‘no documents recording’ communications with or about Judith.

        It’s not the only category where there are serious deficiencies and I don’t know how he proposes to explain that to the court, or whether the court will accept his assertion that he has no such documents.

        • MacRready says:

          If Serge can ‘bring through’ magical healing symbols from other dimensions and knows the answer to every mystery of the universe, then surely he can re-materialise those lost or ‘nonexistent’ emails from The Heirarchy’s junk folder.

        • Purgio Sergio says:

          More than happy to go round to Sergio’s house and give him a hand with his computer if he’s not able to find those emails. May find a few other interesting ones round there at the same time 😉

  10. 🙈🙉🙊 says:

    Surely the upper followers of the UM pyramid, particularly the professionals, are sniffing out the elephant sized rat in the room that they are devoted to and protecting by now.
    Please tell me they are not as long gone as Rebecca with no hope of returning to normality.
    It must be as exhausting on the inside as it is humiliating on the outside.
    Its a very demanding existance, under the control of UM.
    Its a long, tough road to reach the golden carrot with your soul intact. For most it will only ever be an illusion.
    Ensnared into a tight community living in fear of rejection or ostracism and expected to perform for the cause.
    Its a troupe of performing monkeys on leashes who are scrambling for the peanuts thrown to them by the ring master.
    Were your lives so bad before UM?
    I bet there was more laughter and fun and personal freedom.
    Are you strong enough to escape?

    • Lord of Form says:

      No, they are not true seers yet. Seers smell the future. Serge told them so.

      He has them so busy worrying about non existent entities, karma, energetic integrity, walking, sleeping, eating and making love (if they’re lucky) mindfully that there’s no time to smell any rats anywhere. On top of that, they’re up 3 hours before daybreak, living on 1000 calories, battling detractors, making online confessions and hitting the hay (gently) before 9pm. There’s just no time.

      If any of them could smell the future, they’d start to get an uneasy feeling it’s not the one they’ve been “sold”. And that smell would be like shoving your face right in an old rancid rat nest you find at the back of the bales.

        Critical thought is his biggest enemy, he teaches that thoughts are pranic, thereby adding a safety net should a follower find themselves with a spare minute, they remember this and instantly dismiss the thought ” this guy is full of shit, life is more than this mundane slave like existance”
        As words of the devil or 4 lords of form.

          The evil critical thoughts you mention only happen within the bubble.
          For example, the question at around 9 min. in (The energetic rhythm of the spleen ad kidneys):
          “Serge, is this medical science, or is this esoteric science?”
          The answer? “Both”

  12. Pilates is evil ! says:

    And the UM followers now preach that Pilates is as bad and addictive as alcohol and marijuana:

    “I have been blessed to know Serge for over 15 years and during this time my life has certainly had its ups and downs. When we first met, it was most certainly at a major down. I lived my days in major overwhelm, chaos and complication, seeking solace in Pilates, alcohol, marijuana, work and the isolation of my property which I saw as my haven, my escape from the world” she said.

    • Biggest problems in the world says:

      Well, she exchanged one “escape from the world” with another. Pilates, as evil as alcohol, marijuana and tampons.

    • Anonymous says:

      Fuck, maybe it was because you were stoned and drunk that your life was so shit.
      Let me ask you this
      Did you try removing alcohol and weed first leaving only pilates before concluding it too is evil?
      I mean isn’t that what serge teaches you feel and listen to your body?
      Your experiment and conclusion is fundamentally flawed because you did not isolate the 3 variables.
      Maybe serge needs to invent a course to teach you all the science of analytical experiments.
      But this would make you all wake up.
      This knowledge exists I know about I think so do many others he chooses not to bring it through because it doesn’t fit his plan.
      Pilates is not harmful, just because you say so.

      • Ta says:

        It seems to me that if UM didnt invent it, imagine it or are not making money off it then its pranic ridden and it should be well and truely struck out of your lives and if anyone close to you questions or objects, out with them too.
        Im also seeing a pattern of habitual followers amongst the UM community. By that I mean they have been happy to hand over their personal power again and again throughout their lives to someone else which inevitably ends up abused one way or another.
        That conclusion has come from their own life exposures on the UM site. The waffling on about how all the other guru’s and movements they have looked to for answers were so wrong but this one is so right. Really?
        Everyone is looking for answers of some kind, but when views and actions become extremist and rules your world with negative repercussions if you dont tow the line, or fight blindly for the cause, then your soul is lost.

        • Olga Andigor says:

          Again, very obvious, isn´t it? Almost everyone I met in UM had been on a spiritual journey before. Be it following a Guru, “mastering” Reiki, homeopathy, Bach flowers etc. or practicing an extreme diet… until the light of the UM-soul came along.
          Serge made everyone (me included) believe, we follow the impulses of our inner-heart and not him. If you want it to be true, you´ll feel the difference between pranic and fiery energy and there is no doubt about Elvis´ music being clear all of a sudden i. e.
          It´s the desperate need for a safe haven, being in a group of loving people. Dependency on a strong person is the recurrent theme.

        • Lady Macbeth says:

          My ex went from one guru to the next – changed as often as underwear and each one was “the one”. All held the same Svengali like hold over their followers and all ultimately turned out to be scammers. Benhayon’s model seems to have cornered the market in middle aged menopausal women so he has ended up with a herd of ultra emotional and defensive women. It’s a good market to go for as they will defend him to the end, despite all the evidence suggesting there’s something amiss in the the world of UM. Read any of their blog posts or the rants and ramblings on the UnFacts site and it’s clear as day the radical nature of their membership.

      • Serge's Lexi-con says:

        Serge has told them that “the more evidence there is for something” the more likely it is to be a lie. They should only trust their ‘feelings’ , but never their emotions, which are toxic.

        Since they can’t trust evidence or how they feel, they’re only choice is to get ‘guidance’ on how they should ‘feel’. Since there is only one person on the planet who knows the energetic truth of everything, and since according to Serge, everyone else is way down the ‘initiation scale’ guidance on how to ‘feel’ must come from him.

        But he never ever tells them what to do. It’s totally their own ‘energetic’ choice.

        Caveat! Energetic choices can be evil or fiery. For guidance on making the correct energetic choice, please consult Serge.

    Scientology monitors their followers and outs Potential Trouble Source (PTS) members who maybe straying or questioning and/or are linked to a Suppressive Person (SP) or non believer. They also attribute illnesses and accidents to PTS and SP’s.
    UM have a similar strategy with Pranic People (PP) Illnesses here are attributed to not being self loving enough and giving anything of yourself away in this lifetime, unless the giving is to the faith or leader even on a deathbed.
    So anyone who renounces the faith, PP’s and SP’s, must be abandoned or the follower who is connected to that person will be denied their spiritual eternity in this life and in beyond reincarnations.

    Jesus and Elvis are just the tip of the iceberg, his rantings about reincarnations of famous people are endless.
    Janet Williams was Alice A. Bailey´s (aka Serge´s) husband in her previous life. She didn´t claim her energetically high position from her past life into her current life, so she fell down the initiation scale. That´s the game, you do something wrong, you fall.
    “Hitler´s not doing well” in his current life. World War II is of interest for people in Europe, especially England and Germany, so he makes up a few esoteric stories about it. Which war party was in which energy, who was supported by the Ascended Masters (the good ones, of course), a little “nobody knows it but I do” about Russian soldiers raping German women after they freed their country etc.

    His favourite religion to pick on is indeed Christianity with Jesus, knowing most of his students were Christians before UM. What about the thousands of other religions? I´d like to hear him talk about Islam and Mohammed and see how Muslims react i. e.

    Olga (and others) are demonstrating immense clarity, hindsight, insight & self honesty critically reflecting on UM processes / mind manipulation which eventually lead to a mentally confused collapse. (Or ongoing desperate denial ++).

    Hopefully Esther’s blogs help facilitate emotional, psychological, spiritual (& for Esther financial) recovery, not just a good laugh.

    UM has the hide to denigrate / attack other groups / beliefs calling them out as abusive / harmful however perpetrates similar, more sophisticated psycho pathic control camouflaged in a puff of flowery language, health tips, impressive sounding (non evidence based) principles and “love”.

    Can’t reason with (some) well meaning UM immersed followers as UM has polluted / created doubt about good values (eg empathy, compassion, supporting the weak / suffering) and also word definitions on their head: to the point of speaking another language.

    It seems UM’s continued diversional delay tactics & attempts to silence / discredit Esther (who actually cares enough to almost sacrifice herself) are lame attempts to thwart the inevitable demise of UM.

I HHAVE TO get some off my chest, otherwise, I don´t know, why I´ve learned these. The “soul” shows you, when you´ve been too “pranic” and “clears” every emotion via different body parts:
    Liver – anger, gallbladder – frustration, stomach – self-acceptance, kidneys, back pain – sex, money, life energy, knees – fear, hips – holding onto ideals and beliefs, ankle – lack of confidence, lung – grief, brain – thinking in the wrong energy, neck – not expressing your truth from your heart, eyes – not choosing to see truth, heart – not loving enough, shoulder – burden (especially men), see a spider – complication to workk on in your life, butterfly – you´re in harmony, seeking sugary foods – depleteted and craving for a boost, dairy products – not wanting to feel childhood issues, skin condition – clearing prana, diabetes – not living your full potential, cancer – a whole load of clearing of pranic energy… etc etc
    Serge told a woman with cancer in her uterus, she needs surgery urgently as she was clearing prana of 2.000 lifes (not sure about the number, but something with …000).
    If you want to have confirmed, that and why you (society) are not okay and that it´ll take more than a lifetime to fix it, UM is the right place to go to.

  22. Tukulti-Ninurta I. says:

    Dear Esther,
    thank you very much for your huge efforts over all these years now collecting all these information!
    I was searching the internet for information about this Benhayon Guy because my sister lives this “philosophy” for 1 or 2 years now. I have to admit that I totally underestimated this –
    I thought as long as she’s happy, it cannot be bad.
    Now after years of only having contact via telephone I’ve visited her at her house, which she shares with other Universal Medicine Members and now she has visited me what ended up with me seeing the horrifiying truth about this “philosophy”: which is sucking up people, who are searching for answers and for a manual to life (like my sister did).
    And Universal Medicine is pretending to offer all those answers to all questions (and it’s not “42” but “gimme money first”).
    Now I feel like my sister has become totally nuts! It feels like she’s totally numb, caught in a bubble and far out there beyond reach. She’s only repeating these phrases of Universal Medicine like a mantra (“Serge has once said …”) and even her eyes are looking crazy now.
    Our parents and me, we are unable to cope with this and I feel like I’ve lost her without even noticing it. I feel bad that I haven’t seen the signs earlier but now I think she’s in real trouble and I don’t know what to do. I cannot tell our parents what I’ve found here on the internet about this group (which is btw spreading rapidly in Germany). If I would do so, I would destroy everything- I would destroy their relationship with my sister and they would all blame me for this – when it is not me to blame!
    I feel so sorry for all these people who are buying this Universal Medicine-Sh**, because I think they were all simply desperate and seeking for answers (isn’t everybody of us doing this?).
    My sister couldn’t cope with life after she moved out because there were no parents anymore who are telling her what to do and what to believe in (Our parents were very over-caring). I can almost understand how soothing and comforting it must be to have answers and explanations to everything – and if one’s missing, just go and ask Serge. But I would trust no one when he/she is saying that he knows the truth.
    Always question the truth. And the people who are claiming it.

      Detractors drain you energetically or some shit, it’s why you find so many of them living together.

      You have read how many marriages have been destroyed, I wonder how many sister relationships have been destroyed?

    • Lord of Form says:

      The sad thing about groups like this Tukulti is that by their very nature members cannot believe, nor see, they are in a cult. It’s a derogatory term which they revile. We all think we’re too smart to be influenced by other people, least of all become a cult member.

      We’re all in cults of a type (family, club, friends). The problem is when they become exclusive and harmful. They’re harmful when people stop using their own critical reasoning to check if something is true, and family and friends are eschewed when they don’t agree with new and often bizarre ideas. And when they have exclusive teachings and a flawless leader with special knowledge and abilities. We know UM does this in spades. Serge’s central philosophy is “thinking is pranic”. There’s recordings of him discussing how to deal with resistant family members. It’s not nice.

      Your sister is not going to believe she is in a cult. She thinks she has found “the truth”. Her adopted worldview is that we are all in the wrong and driven by prana, jealousy and rage and our own inadequacies. She won’t be able to see that your reactions are out of care and love for her. In fact, Serge has demonised love as a toxic emotion, and care as dysfunctional entanglement (“constellation”).

      It’s a total shock to the system when you realise belatedly what’s been going on. I empathise with you. Many of us have been through this.

      We know facts, scandal and obvious contradictions don’t necessarily turn the lights on. The group deny it but there is very large community of ex-members, family members and ex partners and spouses. It’s a loose coalition but it works and we’re all here to help you get through this shock awakening.

      On that note, Esther we should all acknowledge, is an absolute champion who has stood up and taken them head on. Unpaid and under acknowledged. One person against a pack of over enthusiastic zealots. Some with law degrees. The worst type of litigants.

      If it wasn’t for her exposure of the facts, the group would have now been so much bigger. They’ve shown they are ruthless at attacking anyone who dares question Serge or their doctrine. Look what they have done to Esther, including putting up a (many) deceptive website(s) (where they fail to actually explain they are all UM members who largely don’t live in the area they say they are protecting) to destroy her livelihood. At least Esther is clear on what the issues are, which remain totally unanswered.

      Olga has also bravely stood up against them in your home country. Kudos to her.

      This group are not alone in causing misery with family members and the community while living in the delusion they are amazing and everyone else is fair game. But this is the group we find ourselves dealing with. The misery and divisiveness Serge and his ideas have caused is immense, but there’s no laws against it and no government agency that is going to stop it, least of all recognise it.

      While we can’t enlighten those we’d like to Tukulti, we can those who might fall into the same trap by keeping the light on them. Let’s support Esther on that with some donations to keep her going.

      And we also can be there when people finally come out of the rabbit hole. Many members will emerge to find there’s no one left that cares about them. At least your sister will have you.

I’m Kind of glad to see now, that it’s nothing personal but the intended concept of UM what tears us apart…I feel like I have to let her go, waiting and wishing for her, that she will have a Kind of “bad awakening”, a breakdown, which Shows her the truth as soon as possible. It’ll will be a crisis, a personal hit of rock-bottom, but I’ll be there waiting for her with arms wide open to catch her. I’m hoping that it won’t be very Long…

      When it comes to a “bad awakening” as UM Student, you´ll find a few practical infos on my blog.:) Feel free to use or not use the contact form if questions come up.

      You’re welcome Tukulti – you are right in doing that I think. Many of our readers have learned the hard way that confronting a loved one only makes them more defensive. It’s a very bad idea to call UM a cult to a loved one – they become very offended and may not communicate with you.

      I recommend that you make it clear to your sister that you love her no matter what and you will always be available for her. This is very important when UMers have had enough – they need to know that a supportive and caring person is there for them on the other side. Olga may tell you that when things became very bad, it was family that was there, not UM. The self-loving ‘Sons of God’ turned their backs.

      Another of our friends wrote a very helpful piece on dealing with a loved one in UM. He posted it on the Rick Ross Forum a long time ago, and I put it on my blog

      Thank you to Olga too for your wonderful blog, which I’m sure will be very helpful in Germany now that UM is expanding there. You’re a legend, as we say here in Australia. It’s a compliment 😉

        Thank you, I´m just a small cog in the machine with first-hand UM experience. The teamwork here of all involved is far more constructive and postitive than what I saw at UM.

    And thank you also for the link to Olgas german blog! I can spread the word with that much more easier!
    And please Esther: Keep on doing what you’re doing! It’s amazing what you’ve already done! You’re saving lives with your efforts!

    I think we should thank Esther by showing our support with monetary donations as she is, bottom line, representing all of us. I myself don’t have a lot to offer but by Direct Debiting a very small amount every week that I do not even miss, I am sure Esther would say ” It all adds up”.

  26. Short defence update says:

    Today’s interlocutory hearing in Brisbane went fine. His Honour today ruled the June hearing’s judge was in error in refusing to hear a large part of the argument on the basis that the Queensland court did not have jurisdiction.
    Yes, the law is complex and interpretations vary. That in itself is a good reason to avoid litigation.
    So Raphael and Karam’s third attempt at their application to strike out all of my contextual truth imputations from my defence went ahead but didn’t achieve much, if anything. In brief, Team UM started out trying to strike out 50 imputations, I’m not sure what the final tally is, but I think they succeeded with about 13 in total. Today they were to argue objections to 10. I conceded one of the imputations from memory and I’ve been ordered to replead another four so that they read better. Their strike outs will make little difference to the defence as a whole.
    I’ll tell you a funny story when I have time to write a proper update, but for now, suffice to say, it was a three hour hearing, Charles Wilson talked a lot and brought reams of paper to court. The QC representing me brought a five page submission and didn’t say much. He didn’t need to. The plaintiffs wanted me to pay costs of the hearing, His Honour said no.
    So we roll on.
    PLEASE DONATE TO MY SURVIVAL FUND – UM’s Glorious exploits are just made for court scrutiny, and that is about to get very real – I’m not paying any lawyers’ bills, at all, but I’m doing a lot of work on this and I do need to stay alive.
