Tips to Enhance the John of God Experience

Meditation garden at the Casa

We are well into Saturday afternoon here in Abadiania, Brazil, and enjoying the quiet laughter and inspiring music at Frutti’s.  Many have left town for parts unknown, and those of us gathered are relaxing into the meandering weekend rhythm.  Freshly juiced carrots with ginger and guacamole for my lunch–supporting the healing currents of the Casa de Dom Inacio on all levels 😉

Of course, we began our day at the Casa to make prayers for ourselves and friends. Then, we meditated while partaking of the crystal beds.  Even though John of God has a few days now to rest and rejuvenate in his personal surroundings, the entities are still very much present on the Casa de Dom Inacio grounds.  The current is strong, and the vibration of healing and transformation potent amidst the vibrant nature of the garden.

Friday in Frutti’s–John of God

John of God, Abadiania, Casa Dom Ignacio, spiritual healingI went before John of God this morning, request in hand.  Trusting the entities to still be working with the requests I made for my physical health on Wednesday (and the resulting spiritual surgery), today I made a different type of request:

Please infuse my personality with Love’s light and my Soul’s purpose.

Again, the Casa volunteers invited anyone who was assigned the second time or revision line to join the spiritual surgery group if they desired.  Again, I chose to wait and go before the entity.  Understanding more fully this morning how the entities are using the front waiting and meeting hall to begin their “work, ” I was intentionally silent and maintained a meditative state until my line was called.  I felt the entity’s touch in my being, confirming the connection had begun and movement through the current rooms was even more uplifting and palpably vibratory as a result.

Abadiania on the Horizon – John of God

John of God, spiritual awakening
10 spiritual surgeries in two years–an exploration into the John of God experience

It’s been a year since our last pilgrimage to Abadiania, Brazil, to visit Medium Joao and the entities…and a very full year at that!  We moved across the United States, from central Florida to an island just off the Washington State coast.  My second book, Consumed by the Dragon–Recipes for Transformation, was published.  My beloved four-legged friend and companion through many lifetimes, Baby, passed through veil between life and death.

All of these events are part and parcel of Life.  Many would say they are, in metaphoric terms, the grist that keeps the mill of Life turning.  For me, though, they are significant outcomes for the personal transformation set in motion by my experiences in Abadiania with John of God.  For me, each of these events tracks back to a specific request made to the entities during our visits.  Continue reading “Abadiania on the Horizon – John of God”

John of God Trip 5 – Days 4 and 5

ArrivingAbadiania 026Hotel San Raphael seems to be the social hotspot during the holiday season…  when Frutti’s is closed.  Last night, there was a wedding party for the group that did their ceremony at the Casa Dom Inacio Thursday morning.  We had live music in the courtyard and lots joyful sounds.  Every meal, in fact, is raucous with laughter, and people come from all over town to eat at the only open “restaurant” available.

I’m not exactly sure how all these fun times fit into the idea of spiritual comtemplation, but nobody seems to concerned about it. Continue reading “John of God Trip 5 – Days 4 and 5”

John of God Trip 5 – Arrival and First Day

John of GodThunder is roiling through the sky…  Late December, and it’s summer in Abadiania, Brazil.  Time for the rainy season interspersed with bright sunshine.  Life is verdant green here right now.  We arrived December 25th, 2012 to a quiet town.  Most everything – except for The Casa and our pousada – is closed.  Still, there seem to be quite a few people here…  we watched several other groups arrive on our plane.

A moment here to establish context… Continue reading “John of God Trip 5 – Arrival and First Day”

Qualities of an Awakened Mind – Awakening

meditation, awakening, ho'oponoponoWhat is the background “music” your mind plays?  Have you ever noticed the commentary?  Even more importantly, can you set consciously a mantra for the mind to repeat?  These are questions for the awakening Being to ponder.

Because, it’s true — whether you realize it or not — the mind continually chats.  And the topics upon which the mind dwells can be quite illuminating in terms of where our psyche tends to focus and what our beliefs are.  Indeed, once we know the pattern of the chatter, we are well on the way to understanding the seemingly “unconscious” choices we make… which is only a few steps short of expanded consciousness.

See how that is? Continue reading “Qualities of an Awakened Mind – Awakening”

Nothing Is Different And Everything Is Changed – Awakening

awakening, meditation“Nothing is different, and everything is changed.”  It’s a line from A Paul Simon song.  And every time I hear it, the thought resonates through me like Truth.

The anticipation for BIG changes that will alter the course of civilization runs high these days.  As I read the articles — both scientific and metaphysical — about the state of flux our world and environment is on the brink of experiencing, I wonder if we might be missing subtleties of what awakening is.

I recall the year 1999.  Wayyyyy back then, it was the 2K electronic failure that surged in the news as the event that would bring our world into a new order as we grappled with the loss of a computer-run systems.  Remember that?  And then…nothing happened.  Life went on with a chagrined chuckle.

John of God – Abadiania Adventure June 2012, day 10

John of God, spiritual healing, AbadianiaWe had a plan for our last day with John of God.  Revision line in the morning (Remember, this is the line for one week after spiritual surgery to see if any further intervention is required), and we intended to spend our last afternoon in the Current room meditating.  That was the plan — dependent upon the entity passing us through the revision line with no additional directions (other than, perhaps, sit in the Entity’s Current Room.)  And, even though that may be how the revision line goes 99% of the time…  Not this time for us.

I was told to do another Crystal Bath.  Alan started wheeling me out, thinking, “OK, ” when the entity, through John of God, pointed at him and said, “2 o’clock line.” (This means that the current entity embodying Medium Joao isn’t the expert to deal with Alan’s situation, and he needs to return for the next session and go before the afternoon’s entity.)

Alan’s surprise — again — touched my funny bone:  “You mean,” he asked me later, “I might have to get another surgery?!  …I’m funny now!  Really, I am.” Continue reading “John of God – Abadiania Adventure June 2012, day 10”

John of God – Abadiania Adventure, June 2012, days 3 and 4

John of God, spiritual healing, AbadianiaOur first spiritual surgery together – How romantic!  Well, mainly… just stretch your mind to imagine how sharing the healing energies for twenty four hours, in a small room — mainly in a trance-like state without talking — can promote that feeling of Oneness 😛

As spiritual surgeries go, this was a gentle experience. Continue reading “John of God – Abadiania Adventure, June 2012, days 3 and 4”

Abadiania Adventure, June 2012…day 2 – John of God

My partner, Alan, had another instanteous healing!  You may recall that, during our last visit, he had an experience during meditation in the current room that felt to him like a spasming at the base of his neck and resulted in the re-alignment of a “vertebral bump” that he’d had since childhood. (By the way, it’s still aligned six months later.)  Here’s what happened this time… Continue reading “Abadiania Adventure, June 2012…day 2 – John of God”
