Joao de Deus Spiritual Healing

Casa De Dom Inacio Abadiania Brazil

The centre is in rural central Brazil, South West of the capitol Brasilia. Few people speak English and it is more than a bit confusing.  We have accompanied many people there over the past eighteen  years with considerable success. When “in-entity” Joao looses consciousness. The Entity says very little and with so many people to treat, that is understandable.  He rarely offers any individual spiritual guidance because we must all make our own “free will decisions” but for those who attend the house many great changes affect them, spiritually and physically.  We have never taken anyone who has not been profoundly changed by the experience but it is seldom a “bolt of lightening” for, whilst you will see many instantaneous “miraculous” healings each day, the majority take time to effect a cure - usually about three months. Naturally, like orthodox medicine, there can be no guarantees. The majority of people, depending on the gravity of their illness, respond favorably with time.  Some, however, do not - a missing limb cannot be replaced and similarly a severely degenerated system may not respond - there is a point beyond which the body cannot regenerate. If you decide to stay longer we can help you procure inexpensive accommodation in the village.

After seeing him at work no one can ever doubt the existence of a spirit dimension and a powerful creative force. The ability to tap into that force for the rest of your life is one of the great benefits. If you are a healer or a medium the experience will be of immense help to you. Any medical problems you have will be dealt with by Joao-in-entity but liaise with us beforehand to ensure we understand your requirements.

The healing sanctuary is called the Casa de Dom Inacio and is located 130 km South West of the capitol Brasilia in central Brazil. Joao has operated from this location for more than 45 years.

The Casa is open every day but Joao only incorporates on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8am and 2pm.

A visit to the center is a remarkable experience and most people would agree that, whilst the majority of visitors are there for a cure to a physical ailment, the greatest gift is the spiritual enhancement of the individual – life never seems the same afterwards.

The area is a powerful energy vortex enhanced by quartz-rich ground. Everyone who visits the center is impressed by the sense of energy they experience there. Many catch this energy on film.

Relax, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and allow your mind to wander a little, suspending your disbelief and permitting yourself to believe. Suspend your judgments, subordinate your analytics and logic, and invite the healing power to suffuse every pore, every cell, every recess of your body, imagination and thought.

San Francisco melted into the distant haze as we angled south east towards Brazilia, 5,300 miles away. Destination? Casa de Dom Inacio in Abadiania, a sixty minute drive from Brasilia. I was a bit uneasy; we were going to meet Joao de Deus, or John of God, a widely recognized medium or spiritual healer. I was not certain where we were going, or how we were going to get there, but we were seeking the healing powers of God, and experience the fuzzy fringe borders enveloping  conscious thought and dream, aspiration and hope,  faith and prayer, and  tap into  the rejuvenating grace of meditation and prayer.

The journey begins the moment you commit to going; the healing begins the moment the journey begins. How do you prepare to go somewhere you have never been? Suspend your prejudice, abandon your ego, open the doors of your consciousness and soul, and encourage the majestic healing power to enter. Unwire every synapse that has been so exquisitely hard wired and honed for 53 years. Escape into the other dimension that surrounds your body, mind, and soul. Allow your spirit to reach out, unfettered by all our limitations. How do you prepare to receive the blessings and grace of healing?  How do you give back to the community? I spent a great deal of time wrestling with these issues. How do I reciprocate? I did not know.

This journey was not a coincidence; it was my path, my destiny, a necessary part of my healing.  In mid December, a special friend, Beth, invited my wife and me to join her and another person, Mary, on a spiritual healing quest. “I know this is a little crazy, but would you consider joining us on a trip to Brazil to meet John of God? It is a little far out, but it might help. We will leave on Jan 3 and return Jan 10th.”

 Blink response - of course, how could one pass up this opportunity? I gave it little thought, just a reaction. This was my path, this was my destiny. Well, big choice, bigger leap of faith. The decision had been made even before I was asked. Interesting, we would be there exactly 1 year after my hip surgery, clearly the largest physical intervention in my life. Wonder why? I had nothing to do with the planning of  this.

There is a vast extension of reality surrounding us, enveloping us. Perhaps through prayer and meditation I could touch it. There is a healing power I have not witnessed. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and suspend your disbelief, and you might find it.

Over a year ago I did plan my hip surgery, hoping to relieve the relentless debilitating pain and muscle wasting that accompanies degenenerative osteoarthritis. The complex interaction between the perils of MS and insidious neurological wasting, compounded by the orthopedic degeneration and atrophy, climaxed in a major procedure from which I am still convalescing. I knew it would be an enormous challenge. Right on that, it is. It had been 15 months since I could walk unassisted by cane or support device.

During Christmas holiday in Hawaii, I dreamed I stood before Joao in his healing center. In entity, he embraced me, giving me mouth to mouth resuscitation - or the breath of life. I was shocked and terrified and awakened, tense and nervous. Strange? Who knows? What am I thinking about? Healing.

We had engaged two guides to lead us through our visit to the “casa”, Robert and Vanessa - both highly evolved spiritual people that supported, inspired, and nurtured us every step of the way, offering humor, prayer, and love to us. Wednesday afternoon, we visited the “casa” for our initial audience with Joao who would be in “entity.”  Entities are spiritual beings that temporarily inhabit the physical bodies of other living people called mediums.  We were joined by another 100 or so people as we filed through the first room used for “current”, or prayer and meditation.

During current, one aspires to cleanse the body and spirit of negative attachments, and restore strength, both physical and spiritual. Negative attachments represent the negative energies that we collect through our lives. We internalize these sentiments that can cause a downward spiraling condition, leading to discomfort, disease, and debilitation. There is an enormous body, mind, soul connection that is recognized, but hardly understood. We are ignorant. Find the negative attachments, and release them!

We snaked our way through the casa, surrounded by people clad in white, as we listened to the unintelligible prayers being offered in Portuguese. We were surrounded by broken bodies and tormented souls, people in great anguish, but we were also surrounded by hope, love, and inspiration. At one level I had nothing in common with the others; at another level, I had everything in common. Though we all spoke different languages and had completely different life experiences, we were all there seeking the healing power of God given to us through meditation, prayer, and Joao the medium and his entities. Joao-in-entity, spent moments with each person in line, prescribing his treatment: spend time in current, take a mineral bath, and/or receive a “surgery”. One is given a choice of a visible surgery, or an invisible surgery which is akin to a spiritual intervention. The surgery is followed by an immediate 24 hours of bed rest, and 40 days of a strict follow up protocol that involves no sexual activity, no physical exertion and, whilst taking the herb capsules, moderate dietary restrictions;  no alcohol, no pork and no hot spicy foods.  The body and soul require a healing period nourished by as much self directed energy as one can muster.

In entity, Joao concluded I was too weak for surgery the next morning (Thursday) when my wife, Mary, and Beth were scheduled.  Joao requested I attend current, the meditation and prayer session with another many other people. Additionally, our guides recommended a crystal bed.

The next morning, Vanessa led me to current. Close your eyes, listen to the hypnotic chant of the prayers in Portuguese, breathe in a rhythmic cadence and allow your prayers to reach for the healing power. In and out, in and out. Off you go. At some point, I felt a sharp discharge of phlegm in my sinuses, and then soft but discernable pressure under my right cheek and above my right eye brow, right over my sinuses. Healing? Maybe. Historically I have had plenty of congestion in my sinuses. Drift along with the melodic prayers and chants. Go deeper. The whirring fans interrupt the silence, stirring the warm humid air and then melt to nothingness. Various negative attachments drift through my thoughts - see them, but let them go.

“Open your eyes!” I struggled; I could barely feel my body, let along imagine standing and walking out. I remained seated in a stupor, watching the crowd quietly file out. Finally, one of the volunteers politely waves me out. No, not yet I shake my head. “Please”, he gestures, it is time to leave. Slowly I stand and inch my way to the door. Current - wow, a transforming experience, a cleansing of the body and soul, and a form of rejuvenation. Ready for surgery after lunch.

Interesting - Joao recommended I have a surgery, and chose the day and the hour - 2pm in the afternoon, January 5th (surgery is a form of spiritual intervention) to the hour, exactly one year after my hip replacement, the most significant physical intervention in my life, I experienced this spiritual intervention, or spiritual surgery. Once again, Robert escorted me back to the casa and into the surgery room where I joined 30 other people. “Please sit, close your eyes, hold your effected areas. The surgery has begun.” I felt nothing dramatic the entire 20 minutes, just the gentle brushing of an arm against me. Who is there?

“Open your eyes, the surgery is over.” There was Robert again, guiding us out of the room and to our 24 hours of rest and recovery. I felt nothing unusual in particular, and felt for those that had elected visible surgery because it did involve cutting and direct physical intervention; that was their choice, no anesthetic, no asepsis and no antibiotics. No pain or infection? I wonder why.

By Friday afternoon at 3pm, my three colleagues were in current, seated adjacent to Joao’s healing chair. Robert escorted me to Joao for my farewell. It was hot, the line was long, and I was stiff as a board having spent the last 24 hours in bed. I was exhausted, and waiting to see Joao one more time. I felt dizzy, overwhelmed by the heat, fatigue, and intensity of the casa energy. The line inched forward as Joao radiated his healing energy. He stood up and gently led a man to the edge of the room. A volunteer produced a tray and a bowl. I could not see too well but realized Joao in entity was preparing to do a physical surgery. More commotion, “Is there a doctor in the house?” Now he had really done it, I thought. He blew it; he cut the guy and cannot control the bleeding. I was getting faint. I hate the sight of blood. “Is there a doctor in the house?”. Someone stood up and walked up to the surgery. He watched quietly as the procedure continued. Joao invites all comers to observe his work - there was no error, no mistake. The healing power of God had touched another soul. Done - another successful surgery.

 I had to go sit down. This was all a little much. Robert signaled to me to join him and Joao. Today, he was in entity as Dr. Augusto. He read to him my major concerns and hopes. In complete deadpan, he stared at me, a blank and distant look in his eyes. He held me.

“What do you have?”

“MS”

“What do the doctors tell you?”

“It will get worse.”

“Will you do exactly what I tell you to get better and heal?”

I hesitated. All the people waiting in line were staring at me. My legs were knotted up, stiff as they could be. I was perspiring and light headed, giddy.

“Yes”, I blurted out, before considering the consequences. He had just done real surgery on someone. Would he test me? Would he cut me?

“Straighten your arms like this, breathe deep, deeper, again!,,,, and again.”

I inhaled, close to bursting. The breath of life.  I felt the blood drain from my head.

“Robert, I am going to pass out, tell him that.”

He whispers to him.

“More, deeper, turn, face that way.”

I turned, now facing my friends and the rest of the people in current.

“Everyone, open your eyes.” He yells in Portuguese. “Observe the healing power of God.”

I trembled, terrified at the prospect of stumbling across the room or catching my drop foot on the floor and landing headfirst squarely on a corner. Breathe deeper, tense your legs. Robert gently took my cane.

“Walk!”

Slowly, a step at a time. Everyone was staring at me. I hesitated, trembled some more, and with great resolve inched forward.

“Faster”, he exhorted. “Trust your legs!”, he yelled. Mary stared in disbelief, jarred out of her meditation and prayer. This is Grant’s dream, happening as he had described. I wobbled a few more steps, lurching forward until I met Robert, who escorted me out the door and to the crystal beds. I was perspiring profusely, nearly panting.

“Grant, do you realize what you just did? I cried inside when I saw you walking. The entity wants you to take a one hour crystal bath - a gift from him, it’s free.”

 I was giddy, wobbly, and unsure of each step. Gingerly we meandered down the slope to the beds. I welcomed the opportunity to stretch out and relax. Keep breathing deeply, one step at a time. Did this really happen?

After my crystal bed I looked around the casa - no Robert, no cane, no colleagues. I felt naked, exposed and vulnerable. Well I could get a cab back to the pousada, or could I? Where were the cabs? Was this whole thing a ploy or an intentional incident? I sat down, elated and depressed, distraught over the prospect of trying to walk home, but challenged and energized by the prospect. Step at a time, off I went, over the dangerous uneven torn pavement, over the uneven gravel driveway, and right to the pousada. My gate was broken at best, but slow and constant.  A lovely Japanese gentleman offered to help me. “No thanks, thank you though for offering. I can do this.”

If you help me, I cannot help myself, I thought. Two people draped in white silently glided by in their automated wheelchairs. Thank you, I can do this. It has been 15 months since I walked this far on my own, unassisted. Yes, I can do this!

Now it`s time for you to plan your journey to meet this amazing man.  Go to Ground Support and see how easy it is.  We are here waiting to assist you.
