My Journey that landed me to start “Trips to John of God”
Even though I was born in Brazil and lived there until I was 19, it was not until many years later that I was to learn about the man known as “John of God”. At the age of 10, I moved to America and created a pretty amazing life for myself. I had family, close friends, a career as a REALTOR, owned a house, had money in the bank and was fortunate enough to enjoy many beautiful vacations. Even though it seemed I had everything I could ever want, I found myself on a journey of continual self-improvement and spiritual seeking. There had to be more to life! I participated in seminars, meditation & health retreats, utilized self help books and tapes and even ate fire and broke bricks. I was open to pretty much everything under the sun, you name it and I did it! But still, something was missing in my life. What was my mission or Soul’s purpose?
And then I heard about “John of God” for the first time and everything started to change. Over a short period of time, I experienced a series of occurrences that were too amazing to be considered mere coincidences. Something or someone was trying to tell me something!
First, despite the fact that I rarely watched television and it had probably been three weeks since I had even bothered to turn it on, one day, I got this strong calling to turn on the TV. Immediately, the name “John of God” jumped out at me from the screen. I don’t remember the name of the show or even what they were talking about, but that name, “John of God”, hit me like a ton of bricks and I didn’t know why!
Then, a few days passed when, out of the blue, a friend asked me if I had heard of “John of God”. For some unknown reason, she had written “John of God” on the back of her check book and felt as if she was supposed to show it to me. Wow! I was really starting to pay attention now. With a heightening awareness that perhaps this was really relevant to me and my life, I decided to ask for confirmation and to be given one more sign.
The very next day, while at a restaurant, I was amazed when a group of German travelers told me they were going to Brazil to visit “John of God”. This was my sign! Immediately, I was filled with a deep sense of awe and amazement. I started talking to myself: “okay, I get it; I will find out more about this John of God’”. I sat down at my computer and typed in his name and as the first site popped up and I had my first glimpse of “John of God”, I was filled with this incredible and profound sense of Joy and Love and tears of happiness started to stream down my cheeks. I don’t recall exactly what words I read that day but I do know that I had a very clear knowingness of how important this was. I thought “Yes, this is it; I am going to this place”. I planned a trip to visit my parents in Brazil and then arranged to see “John of God” for the first time.
I was so excited! Finally, I was getting some of the answers I had been seeking but I also felt some fear. Having been brought up in a household with a strict conventional belief system, the idea of a human being channeling spirits of light or Entities to heal people seemed pretty farfetched and certainly wasn’t consistent with what I had been taught. But despite these fears and doubts, I had an undeniable feeling and knowingness that everything was alright. I trusted and kept an open mind and heart and kept my focus on the following question: “What is the Ultimate Truth, and what am I here for?”
While attending an orientation on the night before I was to see “John of God”, I was told that it was not necessary to specify to the Entities or John of God as to the type of healing I was seeking. Rather, I was told the entities had the ability to read one’s body energy thereby knowing precisely what type of healing was necessary. How fascinating!
So as I sat in the orientation, I thought about the injury I had sustained years prior that left me with chronic pain in my hip and lower back. Suddenly, I literally felt something inside my body, moving things around, just like a chiropractor performing an adjustment. As I was filled with immense feelings of peace and love, I thought: “Oh that is what this is!” From that point forward, it felt like my heart just continued to open up with compassion and my mind kept expanding in love.
My true healing began after I returned to the United States. After a fairly short period of time, all of the pain in my hip and lower back was gone and I was pain free! This seemed like a miracle to me and inspired me to ask the next question: “How might I be able to serve others in need of such healings? The answer was simple: I needed to start sharing my story with others for two reasons. First, so they too could find out about this amazing healer we call “John of God”. And second, so they might be inspired to make the journey to Abadinia Brazil and experience such a healing for themselves.
I started by showing a documentary DVD entitled “Healings” in my living room every week and gradually branched out to where I am now. Today, not only do I have the blessed job of doing group presentations to educate and inspire but I serve as a guide and bring groups of people to see “John of God” several times a year. These people have tremendous needs for healing and often have strong desires to accelerate their growth on their life’s journey and get in touch with their true Soul’s purpose and I am blessed and honored to be a part of their journey.
In my own words, this Healing Center or Casa, is a Soul Hospital, the most loving and the happiest hospital on Earth. It is a place of genuine love and compassion, where one truly experiences what it means to be a spiritual being in this physical world. Periodically, I check in to make sure I am on track and ask myself “why am I doing this”? The answer is always the same; “because it feels right and I know this service can help so many people.”
