Happy Columbus Day! I hope you have a delicious fall weekend.

I have been in seclusion for 10 days which is why you have not received news from me sooner. Thank you to all who inquired about me, it is nice to be missed. I was planning on getting an early start on this newsletter this morning but my car needed immediate attention so I spent the morning in my car repair place. As I was driving, I kept noticing the volume of traffic that usually is not there when suddenly it dawned on me that this is a long weekend. Being in seclusion makes one out of touch with the world and the fact that my eye doctor is open for business on Columbus Day added to my confusion. I actually called him to verify my appointment since it is a holiday.

Since I am not up on the latest news as I have been without TV, computer, phone, reading and writing for all of this time, I thought I would share with you my experiences of being with a healer from Brazil. John of God claims no fame, he says only God heals so he does nothing. He prefers to be called by his given name but people who have experienced healing from him have attached God to his name. At the age of 8 in the poor country of Brazil, he left home to find a job. He was living under a bridge when some people saw him from a neighboring village and invited him to their church. John (Joao) suddenly passed out and woke up 4 hours later in total confusion. He was surrounded by many people and was told that he had been in actuality healing all of these people. Being so young when all of this occurred he never even graduated grade school and at 74 years of age, still cannot read or write, yet has wisdom beyond his years. He does not speak English but speaks two other languages so it is necessary to have people translate for him both here and for those who visit the Casa in Brazil.

The last 8 years he has been coming to America for three days of healing and this retreat is held at Omega in Rhinebeck, New York. You have to see and feel it to believe it. The peace and love just oozes out of that place once a year. Everyone wears white so imagine seeing 2,000 people all in white gathered about outside or meditating or sitting in the tents that have been set up as meditation rooms or current rooms where many people are meditating which increases the energy that the entities can use for everyone. Each of us contributes to the current. The current rooms are power-places for spiritual practice, raising vibrations and healing. I have no words for what I felt or experienced, you just can’t put those experiences into words. I hope someday you will be able to personally experience it.

John of God at Omega offers the choice of coming for all three days or just one day. The campus of Omega cannot give overnight accommodations to all because there are 2,000 people a day for the three days for a total of 6,000 bodies plus all the extra people necessary to pull off such a large event. There are many hotels and accommodations in the local towns but it is not the same as staying in that loving energy for the whole three days. If you are interested after reading this newsletter, I suggest you call Omega and make reservations sometime around Christmas even though the event is usually held the last Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of September.

John of God is a medium of spiritual healing who incorporates with many different “entities” although only one at a time. I know there are several doctors that come through him. One is called Dr. Augusto De Almeida, an enlightened Spirit who is dedicated to alleviating pain and suffering. He once said, “My phalange is not composed of tens or hundreds, but of thousands. I will go to the abyss for one last soul.” It has been said Dr. Augusto is the one who comes in the most frequently.

**THIS IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR ANY EXISTING MEDICAL PROTOCOL** He is adamant about continuing with your doctor and doing what you are told to do and what is prescribed. In fact, a human body that holds that high of a frequency for that length of time usually suffers quite visible physical manifestations of ill. He has been doing this healing work for three days a week for 66 years. Boy, what dedication he has to God and to helping us. I don’t believe I could be that dedicated, could you?
Joao is quite different compared to most mediums of spiritual healing that allow that voltage of energy into their body because he is 74 and in good health. Last year, he had cancer and is now cured and chemotherapy was used to cure it. He also has a one and a half year old daughter.

Jesus, Mother Mary, St. Ignatius De Loyola, St. Francis, and others than I cannot remember also incorporate into Joao. Neither John of God nor any other living person is aware of which Enlightened Being will come through at any given time except the Beings themselves. Who best suits the situation of the person in front of him, is who comes through to help that person. The human person Joao is not in his body, the Beings are using his body to do invisible surgery and healings on the people who come to them. Joao is not aware of any happenings and cannot remember what has happened while he has been “absent”.

I first went to Brazil to see John of God in January of 2006; Josie RavenWing was my tour guide and treated all of us with such motherly love and concern through all the procedures. She is actually one of the leaders at Omega of the prayer energy we are experiencing as we are all meditating. In 2005,I was already scheduled for a knee replacement by a local surgeon but I decided to try one more thing. I was there at the Casa in Brazil with John of God for two weeks and I received an “intervention” surgery the day before I was scheduled to return home. I was told to treat it like a regular physical surgery, ie, use the wheel chairs at the airport and etc. I felt so much better even though I still had some knee pain, I cancelled my knee replacement surgery and prepared for retirement.

What I know now is that although I had received a healing, I was not ready for a “full” healing. God cannot give us what we are not ready to receive and although I wanted full recovery so badly, there had to be a part of me that was not ready. God gave us Free Will and he cannot go against the very gift he gave. We need to be able to surrender our will to His. Gradually over the years, the pain and loss of movement progressed but now I could not have the “physical” surgery because my body will not tolerate antibiotics or pain medication which is a necessity.

I try to go to Omega every year because to feel that kind of love energy is nearly impossible to find anywhere else. 2,000 + people a day meditating and holding it all at the same time intensify the effects. It is very difficult to come back to the “real” world afterwards; in fact, I have a hard time getting my car up to speed on the way home.

The entities view us as a hologram and know what we require for our highest healing. For those who would like to hand their requests to the entity, slips of paper are provided. I feel that by writing it down, it implants it more in my heart and mind and gives my permission for the healing. Also, everyone there has someone they wish healing for and they can also add those people’s names and conditions. We can also present photographs for healing which will be brought back to Brazil for healing and prayers throughout the next year.

When I had an intervention, I would go back to my room and stay mainly in bed for the whole day or 24 hours. It was easy, as I felt like I would if I had had actual physical surgery and was “out of it” most of the time. Your energy is very open at this time so it is important to not socialize or watch computer or TV or phone as you can be affected by all of these and it would interfere with the healing. For the next 8 days, absolutely no heavy lifting; no strenuous exercise, running, yoga, etc. You must have complete rest. IF you have had EYE intervention, you must refrain from reading, writing, watching television, phone, and computer use for 8 days. That is what I had and that is why I have been in seclusion and I had to add 3 more days because I had 3 surgeries and had no idea which one would be for the eyes.

The rest of the protocol is for 40 days which requires following a diet free from alcohol, fertilized eggs, arousal of sexual energy, spicy food, and all energy work, and drinking I tablespoon of water from the 3 large bottles of blessed water. Drinking it consciously, with love and appreciation for the healing you are receiving. John of God blesses this water for us to have as a tonic and an aid to our recovery. In Brazil, they have herbs but since they cannot bring that large amount of herbs into this country, the water is purchased here and he blesses it here. It is like the water of Lourdes or any other Blessed Water. Two years ago, he ordered 40,000 bottles, last year he ordered 50,000 bottles and this year 60,000 bottles and still they had more demand for what was there.

As I am rereading and checking for errors and clarity, I feel that I have not done this event justice. To have the ability to feel that intensity of love and never hear anything negative from anyone, is truly a gift. Everyone is shining and smiling at everyone else and right there to lend a hand if needed. The ages were from newborn (no kidding) to some in their 90’s. Some children were being carried and others were in wheelchairs, crutches, scooters (like me) and there was even a woman who had the kind of scooter that you kneel on with one knee while you pushed it. Yet most of the people there were mobile, they had illnesses of body, mind or spirit that just did not show on the outside. Yet they also were smiling and feeling the LOVE. IF, a big IF, you get the chance to go to Brazil or to Omega, jump at the chance, you won’t be sorry. You can also check on the computer for more info or let me know and I will send you some links.

Wayne Dyer also wrote about his experience, this is the short version. Email me if you want the whole story.
There is an extraordinary gentleman on the planet by the name of John of God. I recently had the most amazing experience with him. I sought his help for a second time for my excruciating neck pain that first arose just before the taping of my newest Public Television special, I Can See Clearly Now.

This healing took place remotely while John of God was at his home base in Brazil and I was in my hotel room in Carlsbad.

My friend Reid Tracy came to visit me just after my “spiritual surgery.” He was astonished to find a large scar on the back of my neck. Two weeks later, the scar was gone.

One of the things I admire about John of God is his simple message: “I do not cure anybody. God heals, and in His infinite goodness permits the entities to heal and console my brothers. I am merely an instrument in God’s Divine hands.”

I have come to a place in my life where I have a mind that is open to everything. I invite you to experience this man’s work through my own personal story below:
