Wherein we have the natural places in which we sequester our spirits – in sundry spaces such as temples or churches; within the bowers of our trees in nature, within our souls when there is no place to hide; in the suns open glare in the open deserts; or in the cold stare of the crowd – there you will still find the deep sequestered self of your soul. It is your own, not to be shared, never to be sold.
Even if one is not able to, for whatever reason, express one’s faith or reason within a world that is unreasonable, to not only a god, but perhaps one’s idea of it, whether it be of art, of love, or science, there within the sequestered self, there resides the natural spirit.
When you feel there is no place wherein you find a place to whisper your deepest prayer or desire, or your sweetest secrets or confessions to your God, where you feel there should be no man who can intervene, there should be a place where you can find a place of solace, where you can express your spiritual self and inclinations, deep within your mind.

Spiritual ceremonies, where humans gather together in a circle, are especially potent. An energetic hoop gathers over the circle to assist in the endeavor for the gathering, whether it be for the purpose of celebrating a new birth, honoring a solstice, or to express anything of importance to humanity, as individuals, or as a group.
Altars are also powerful. They are a gathering place for spirits to provide protection and shielding, to aid in a calling or, perhaps, to provide a sacred place for the energy of one who has crossed to another dimension to gather and connect. Or, we might choose to build an altar dedicated to providing an anchor for our business when we are away, the same as when we are present. Read the rest of this entry »
This morning, I ran into one of my friends in our little Spanish town, and we decided to grab a coffee and catch up. I was delighted at how she took an interest in my Om/Aum pendant. She commented on how I seemed to treat my pendant as something rather sacred, and with respect – an interesting observation! She loved the flow of the shapes, and asked if the pendant had any specific meaning.
I had to remove the pendant and study it closely to try and remember what I was taught years ago, in order to give her a brief description to the best of my ability. One by one I tried to connect with each swirl in the design and was surprised that I had remembered quite a lot of what my mentor had taught me. It was a long time ago, when we used the Om/Aum chant in our meditation sessions.
With my pendant on the table I began to explain the meaning of the dot at the top of the symbol, and recalled that this related to the silence after chanting Om/Aum. It represents the Enlightened Self, and is known as the transcendental state of Turiya. Read the rest of this entry »
Creating a sacred space within our homes is essential to our well-being and emotional health. How many times have you needed a time out, or place of refuge to clear your mind? Seeking peace and balance is vital, with all of the breakdowns and breakthroughs occurring in our personal lives, and the world today.
You don’t need to invest much money since simplicity is key. From past experience, the best place to start is by removing all the ‘stuff’ in your living space that is no longer needed, or wanted. Sell it. Donate it. Or toss it – depending on the value and sentiment. Read the rest of this entry »
Carnelian is a part of the Agate family and a form of Chalcedony, the gemological term used for all types of quartz in cryptocrystalline form. It can be red, orange, and red-brown and has both the properties of Agate and Chalcedony.
Agate is effective in balancing the yin and yang energies. It stabilizes the aura and gives a cleansing effect. It transforms and eliminates negativity. Agate further increases analytical abilities and precision and awakens natural talents. It creates inspiration from, and connection with entities in the spirit world.
Chalcedony is part of the quartz family. It is traditionally used as a sacred stone by Native Americans and is good in balancing energies of mind, body, emotions and spirit. Chalcedony represents good will, while decreasing hostility, sadness, or depression. It also increases receptivity, responsiveness, and giving. Read the rest of this entry »
Casa days are considered “high intensity” days, because this is what you have truly come here for, to be bathed in the vibrational frequency of the Casa Entities through the physical being known as John of God. The Casa Entities are everywhere and present daily, but only Medium João (John of God) is in full-swing on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday each week.
The other days of the week he might be seen milling around the town and engaging with the other visitors. It is said that Medium João constantly moves in and out of deep trance so you never know if you meet up with him if he is “in Entity” form or actually himself. Those who have known him long can easily tell, but most of the travelers are quite unaware.
So on this day, Wednesday, in our second week here, I had encouraged my group to join me for breakfast and walk to the Casa together. It is a nice ritual and a great way to come together and heal as a group energy, as well as individually. Read the rest of this entry »
We enjoyed the Sacred Waterfall so much that we decided to go back a second time. It was a most amazing experience as we saw the legendary Blue Butterfly numerous times on this second trip. I also brought all the photos and the healing list along with me for a sacred waterfall healing.
The day prior we asked the Blue Butterfly, together as a group, to come and greet us. During our opening prayer, before walking down to the sacred site of the waterfall, we once again invited the Blue Butterfly to join us on this healing journey. Later, as I was walking down the path leading the group, I had the first sighting of the blue butterfly! He appeared out of nowhere and I turned around to tell the group, but sadly he flew away without anyone else seeing it. Read the rest of this entry »
This morning I took all my photos that I brought with me for healing to a Crystal Bed session at 10:20am Brazil time. We went into Room 8 and St. Ignatius of Loyola was the Casa Entity that worked on our healing. Dom Inácio (as he is known) is the ‘Big Kahuna’ around here. The Casa is named after him and he is the main Entity that is in charge of the whole Spiritual Hospital that has been created here.
I asked for healing in my right ear this morning, as I can feel a lot of pressure in that area. I have undiagnosed Meniere’s Disease (my mother has it as well) which affects my hearing.
After the crystal bed session I wandered around the Casa grounds, praying and meditating for everyone that I had energetically brought with me for healing. I could feel the Casa Entities working as I moved into a deep trance-like state and received visions of many healings, and the many people that I would be bringing for further healing and awakening.
