I have travelled far and wide and explored many different treatments over the years in my attempt to heal myself of cancer but what I am about to do even surprises me. I am about to embark on an 18 hour journey to Brazil to see a self-described ‘tailor/medium/psychic surgeon’ who cuts people open with nothing but a scalpel and a whole lotta spiritual assistance!
João Teixeira de Faria also known as João de Deus (“John of God”) was born June 24, 1942 and lives in Abadiânia, a small town in the state of Goiás, southwest of Brasilia. Now before I go on, I know some people have a big hangup about the word ‘God’ and let me say, ‘I hear ya’. My idea of God is not some dude in the sky deciding who’s being shipped off to hell for ‘sinning’ and who gets to visit the pearly white gates but just another word for ‘Source’, ‘Universe’, ‘Energy’, ‘Life’, or whatever you want to call it. Got it? Good, glad we got that straight.
John has been carrying out this work of “God’ since he was nine years old and has had literally millions of people flocking to see him over the years. He describes the assistance he gets in order to perform psychic surgeries as ‘spiritual entities’ who work through him to heal individuals who haven’t been able to find healing elsewhere. Some of these entities were apparently once medical doctors and surgeons before they passed over and have chosen to use their expertise and skills in the other realm to help those of us here on planet earth who have been dealt a bad hand. (Phew – good to know that these entities know their caliper from their canula!)
I discovered John just over a month ago after learning that he performed a distance healing on Dr Wayne Dyer, of whom I am a massive fan. Wayne had been diagnosed with leukaemia and received distance healing from John of God which left him for six needing 24 hours of bed rest. In this video below he talks about his experience of the healing which is an interesting watch. (He starts talking about it at 11min 30secs.)
From there, I began to google and research and wonder whether it might be worth a trip to see him myself. I have nothing to lose after all! Even Oprah was intrigued and sent a team of people down to check him out and if he’s good enough for Oprah, he’s good enough for me! Of all the various treatments, healers, practitioners an therapies I have tried, (and there have been a LOT which would actually make a really fascinating book) this is definitely the most random, the scariest and the least I know anything about. I have literally no idea what I am going to be doing or witnessing over the next 2 weeks but from the book I am currently reading, I can hazard a guess.
“The Book of Miracles” by Josie RavenWing describes John of God scraping peoples eyes with a pairing knife, slicing into them, sticking his fingers into bodies and pulling stuff out, all with no anaesthesia. I’ll say that again – no anaesthesia or drugs – zilch, nada, nout! And yet in 44 years there hasn’t been one case of infection or anyone experiencing pain during the procedures. Daily ‘miracles’ are occurring and improving peoples lives thanks to the work of this man. He doesn’t charge for treatment and the ‘Casa de Dom Ignacio’ sounds like it is a magically healing and restorative haven for those looking to regain their health in body, mind and spirit.
I shall be keeping a diary of my time there and depending on my energy levels, may even record a video for you. Wish me luck!
Do you know anyone that’s been to see John of God?
