When I asked Heidi, a beautiful, 30ish, paralegal living in Philadelphia, why she visited John of God, a spiritual healer/psychic surgeon, she told me her experience. "When my Mother first told me about the healing work of John of God, ten years ago, it sounded crazy and impossible. How could someone cure people by channeling spirits and performing physical and ethereal surgeries without using any anesthetics? But over the years, as I studied meditation, and read books on spirituality and New Age topics, I became fascinated by the idea. Finally, at the beginning of this year, the desire to go to John of God's Center, the Casa de Dom Inacio in Brazil, hit me like a lightning bolt.
I knew I had to experience what John of God had to offer, even though I only had minor health issues and felt emotionally stuck. Many people visit him in order to further their spiritual growth or to become aligned with their life's mission. The healings are performed every morning and afternoon on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, for Brazilians and people that come from all over the world. Anybody can come and all healing is free. Many are cured of cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis and other serious physical illnesses. But others are healed of depression, addictions, or emotional afflictions. I didn't have the money for the airfare and to hire a guide, so I took out a loan.
I was determined to go to the Casa, so nothing could stop me. And before I knew it I was standing in line with 300 others at eight o'clock in the morning waiting for my first session with John of God. When it came to my turn, I was so overcome by emotion I dropped to my knees and began crying uncontrollably as I looked into his kind eyes. When he held my hand and said I would be healed, I felt relieved. John of God always humbly claims that he does not heal others. He acts as a channel for the Higher Power. He is a medium whose body is used by more than 30 spiritual beings, many of which are saints that perform healing. I sat near him for five hours witnessing other healings. The time flew by quickly. My grief turned to tears of joy. John of God performed surgery on one woman who had breast cancer. He made a small cut with a scalpel on her breast. He reached inside her body with his hand and pulled out a piece of cancerous tissue and dropped it into a pail held by an assistant. He sewed the wound with a regular needle and thread. The woman did not cry out or seem to be in any pain. The whole process was over in just a few minutes. She was then wheeled away to the recovery room, where patients who have had surgery lie on beds and rest. Later they are given blessed soup and are brought back to their hotel room where they must rest in bed for at least 24 hours to re-cooperate.
It is much like having real surgery, if you strain yourself after having an operation, complications can occur. The protocol is the same for people who receive invisible surgery from the spirit entities. Another day while attending the afternoon healing session with John of God, I witnessed a Canadian woman in her mid-fifties who had been crippled for two-years after being stung by a jelly-fish, throw her crutches down and walk by herself after he told her she didn't need crutches anymore. When the session was over, she was too scared and unsure to walk by herself so I accompanied her to her hotel room. She told me that she had been at the Casa for a month and had three other sessions, where nothing seemed to happen, but she trusted that her time for healing would come. When it came to my turn to receive another healing, John of God held my hand and told me to sit in the current. He directed me to sit on a bench in a small area next to him where 100 or so other people were also sitting in silence with their eyes closed meditating. It is called the current because the trance state generated by the group creates an energy field that supports the spirits channeled by John of God, much like how holding hands in a séance supports spirit contact. At first I was afraid I wouldn't be able to sit quietly without crossing my arms or legs for five hours. But after a few minutes I relaxed into a trance-like state. I began to review my entire life.
Some painful childhood memories of difficult times with my father that I had forgotten about came into my awareness. My heart started beating really fast as I also recalled some rough times while going through my divorce. When I was able to forgive my Dad and my ex and send love, I received guidance and felt a deep sense of peace. I sat in the current during healing sessions for the rest of the week while other people were standing in line to meet John of God face-to-face. Over the weekend while walking around on the Casa grounds, sitting at a local cafe or having lunch at my hotel, I met many people, who had amazing stories to share. One woman from Kenya was visiting the Casa on behalf of her sick mother, because John of God healed her brother's neighbor of stage-4 cancer. A woman from my group shared how she was healed from fibromyalgia after visiting John of God last October.
She came back just to say thanks. My mother shared that during her painless surgery she felt as though she was swimming with dolphins. During the two weeks I stayed at the Casa, everyone was so kind and helpful. I didn't want to leave to come home to the big city, where I didn't feel emotionally safe much of the time. I felt so much goodness at the Casa that the experience restored my faith in humanity. But now that I'm home I'm a new person, for I am more peaceful."
