This is an email I sent to UM. I have sent many but of course no reply. If you think it is appropriate I would like you to post it on your site as I have a lot of experiences that I can send to you in support. I am in the background doing as much as I can to make others aware of this group and the way they operate.
Like I told you, I lost my partner to this cult but that is not my motivation any more. I do not want to see anyone else in the same situation. P.S my relationship prior to my partner being introduced to this group was A1 and everyone was shocked when we split…we were a great couple. She was my best friend, a beautiful person and a true pleasure to be around. Now she does nothing but follow the great Serge.
To Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine,
Why don’t you explain in your sanitised site things like:
You sell “symbols” that Serge made up and benefits from these are fictitious. How do you really expect anyone with 1/4 or a brain to believe in this? I have seen first hand how the weak are manipulated and drawn to believe that these symbols help. I have seen your avid followers weakened and perplexed thinking their children are benefiting from this illusion. Yet, they are the sickest, most poorly behaved and socially disconnected children I have ever seen. So Serge, who takes responsibility for this? Not you old mate because money is love isn’t it? (thats what you preach isn’t it?)
The great leaders and creators of true and great change do not profit from people. You have had a good time so far but the illusion will be only yours in the end. Why don’t you live your delusional life just between you and your family and stop profiteering from the weak? As a person with balanced values, I and many more Australians are seeing the damage you are creating from your personal beliefs with the only profits to yourself. I knew from day one, you and your family were people to avoid…When you have to explain you are not a cult the red light flashes. When anyone delves into what you have created you find after searching the net that you dig back into past belief systems and copy and manipulate info that is quite hard to find. You change it to suit your illusion. This in my view is very disturbing. Serge, if the internet was not around you would have really struggled with your illusion wouldn’t you? I have spent the last 4 years watching you and analysing your progress, and it’s very interesting. Your views and practice methods change all the time don’t they?
To UM “students”, look back over the last few years and you will see a definite pattern of continuing change that is designed to keep you paying up and captivated.
You say you are all about truth and judgement, so why do you not post both sides and only look after your sanitised interests. All other sites allow both sides of the story, why not yours?
Hey Serge, remember 2012 was the year that some really big things were going to happen?! Apart from your exposure to the real world through the media….what is it?? Also remember that you were going to close up shop due to your view that your “students” were not performing correctly…
Thanks for your post Winston, they’re good questions.
And we’d like to welcome anyone who has been affected by Universal Medicine to send in your own posts. We’d like to hear about your experiences of the group, and we also welcome you to post the questions you’d like to put to Serge or his apologists. It’s always great to hear many different voices, because each of you will have your own valuable perspective. (And of course it means it’s not just Venus banging on all of the time.)
We’re aware many students and loved ones of students have had difficult and damaging experiences with UM, and have thought they were alone, not realizing many others were going through much the same.
Truth is, people outside of Universal Medicine don’t know anything about UM activities or beliefs. They don’t know what goes on in the households and minds of Universal Medicine students, and we’d like to have as much concrete information as possible about this group made available to the public.
If you’re not sure what to share, we’re inviting students or ex students to tell us your experiences of the UM workshops and treatments, or what it was like to try and do the Universal Medicine ‘work’.
How did it change you and your life?
What were the beneficial elements and what wasn’t so good?
How long did you stay with the group and what prompted you to get out?
For loved ones of UM students, how were you affected by the experience?
How was the loved one recruited?
What activities did they take part in and how often?
What changes did you notice in your loved one?
How did those changes make you feel?
Use the contact page if you have a longer post, or post in the comments.
If you’re concerned about your anonymity, or that of your loved one, write without mentioning location or gender (call them ‘they’ rather than he or she), and use an assumed name.
And a general question for everyone. I’m thinking we could make the first hand account/stories/complaints/questions into a separate freestanding blog. Any feedback on this idea is welcome. I guess it depends on how willing readers are to share their experience…
