John of God's June Birthday Celebration 

All is well on a sunny, happy day!! 
June 23rd 2017, celebrating 
Medium  Joaos 75th birthday in style .
Relaxed and smiling ,John of God  stopped generously for photos with everyone. 

After the work in the  Casa  ,we all spilled across the road for the  accolades of gratitude and a simple sweet speech. 

We  were wowed by yet another spectacular fireworks display kindly donated  
by Heather  Cumming, 

 Despite the brisk temperature of the evening there was a hefty turn out of well wishers, from near and far. 
Some  of the  pousadas provided free food.
 Medium  Joao retired into his tent where five giant blue and white birthday cakes awaited ,to be cut and distributed to ALL. 

It was a wonderful night of celebration of this extraordinary man, his phenomenal  misson ,over 60 years serving humanity.
The band belted out  popular music as we danced and reveled into the night .
Parabens and Obrigado

Happy Birthday our Beloved Medium Joao!!

 Casa Prayers CD

Created with the help of the Entities
by Grainne McEntee
For years, many people have approached me after the Current sessions and inquired if there was a recording of the prayers in English, from the first Current room. This prompted me to ask the Entity, who was receptive and  happy to grant me permission to do this work. 
So this CD was born to help people leaving Abadiania to connect with the Current when 
 they go back home.
It is available at the Casa bookstore, and you can contact Grainne at Café Central or on for more information.

Casa Guide Advice Tips: 
Listen for Special Instructions after EVERY Spiritual Intervention
         By Sean Durkin ~ 
Abadiania Local Casa Guide
     As many who have come to the Casa know, the Entities often alter the post intervention instructions, which makes it essential that 
all guides and visitors, new and returning,  check with the people doing the official Casa orientations every time they have an intervention to see what changes and supplemental instructions have been made.

Why Volunteer for Interventions?

By Grainne McEntee
~FOC Lead Reporter ~
~Casa Current Room Volunteer~
For some years now the Entity at the  Casa  has been asking people to volunteer for interventions .
This adds a whole new dimension to our healing progress.
Many people who have been attending the  Casa sessions seem to be quite dependant  on the spoken word of the Spirit present in Medium  Joaos body ,as a direct and clear  instruction for 
having an operation . They are only listening to an 
outer voice rather than a gut feeling inside.
It has become a habit and this is understandable.

At first when this work was presented there was 
an element of surprise  ............
"What ! volunteer myself without first running it past the Entity ?"
Even today people say to me
" I haven't had an intervention for ages because JOG didn't say that I needed one specifically ".

The Entity's are helping us to grow on our spiritual 
paths ,to take responsibility for our actions.
We are maturing into our higher selves, learning to follow our intuition and being guided without specific verbal directions.

The message is loud and clear.
It is God who heals, Medium  Joao is an instrument in Gods hands.

These instructions are helping us to make the most of our time here at the  Casa. Sure, its important for us to make some contact with The Man . 
However ,if we are waiting for  him to say the word "intervention", we most likely will be disappointed.
We need to surrender expectations.
There are deep lessons to be  learned through this particular protocol.
We are putting ourselves at the mercy of the Divine Power, trusting, having faith, believing in these wonderful Entities sent by our Creator to help us, guide us, protect and love us, on our journeys back home to the Celestial fields.

We ask for favors and God gives us opportunity's.
We don't get what we want we get what we need.

Stepping forward for healing on our own account  is a great act of surrender. We are being encouraged to take responsibility for our actions and to bring our own conscious energy to the equation.  What the Entity is in fact saying is.
"for those of you who believe in the Architect of the Cosmos., I am inviting you to receive the healing energy of the  Casa de Dom Inacio
Your Faith will heal you .
 It doesn't get any better than this, 
being invited to be healed.
 Let us seize the moment .

New Casa Herb Protocols
Brought to us by Diego Coppola
Casa Translator and Volunteer

The Rules for Passiflora have changed. Herbs are now taken twice a day instead of three times a day! 
Also we can eat all types of eggs, even fertilized eggs, while taking the Passiflora Casa Herbs.
It will take us a while to change the manuals but this rule is now official. Please advise your people accordingly. This applies to herbs you may already have as well.
The number of capsules per bottle had changed. The large bottle will now last 40 days and the small one 8 days.

Kathleen talks about her experience as a Crystal Bed Practitioner

     John of God Crystal Light Bed Therapy has brought my clients peace and a feeling of contentment and love. I describe and embrace it as a sacred healing tool that creates a healing vortex of energy that aligns a person's energetic field as well as I have seen it create mental emotional spiritual and physical healing. The crystal device has seven Vogel type, cut crystals which are attuned to the body's chakras.   Colored lights radiate specifically attuned energy down through each one of the seven clear quartz faceted crystals into the chakras.   
     I have seen and felt the Entities of Light that work with John of God at the Casa Dom Ignacio make their presence known through the colored lights and energy that radiate through the seven clear quartz crystal.   The crystals simply act as a portal in which the Entities can transmit their restorative powers.  
     I have worked full time with the crystal bed for the last four years treating over 2,000 clients up and down the Coast of California.  I have seen so many miracles happen through sessions on the crystal bed.  I have seen back problems healed, hope restored, bladder problems fixed, finances improved and so many more.   I have seen children who see God and angels.  One little girl after her session when I asked her "how was your crystal bed session, said to me it was fun, I saw an angel."  The angel said to me "don't forget when you look in the mirror to remind yourself, how beautiful you are."  Another little girl said to me "I saw my grandpa (who was deceased) and he said to me 'I wish I was there with you to look at all the beautiful crystals with you.'"  
     The crystal bed has been to me a beautiful way to share the energy of light and love from the Casa to those in need.  My own granddaughter Luna Joi, was healed from Trisomy 21 also known as Downs Syndrome by a picture presentation to the Entity in Brazil when she was only one-day old.  I was given an inner message from Spirit to give her three 20-minute crystal bed sessions, to bring the lights over her crib, place the triangle in the crib and play the music. I waited until she was asleep and did as described above.  The instant I turned the crystal light bed on, she began to talk baby talk sounds, laugh and was moving her legs and hands as if she was playing with someone.  She was sound asleep though.  After 20 minutes, I turned the lights off and she continued sleeping as if all of that had never taken place.  She was never awake.  She is four years old now and the Entities continue to work with her.   Almost everything has been reversed now.   I call her my Spiritual Warrior.  
     The Crystal Bed is REAL.  It creates miracles with the Entities of Light and people are restored, many client's relatives from the other side come to visit them through the crystals as well.  One thing is for certain, The Crystal Bed is a portal of light that I give thanks to John of God for developing and allowing such beauty, hope, love and light to shine into humanity at this time.  It is my life and I love this work.

~ Noel's Healing Story ~
by Melinda Holland
Casa Orientations Volunteer 

     Noel who is Irish, was cured of neck injury due to an accident, rheumatoid arthritis, and bone cancer at the Casa de Dom Inacio. Noel found out about the Casa because his daughter is a journalist. When he came here he was in a bad way. Noel had fallen from a scaffold in 2005 and fractured his C2 in 4 places. He was lucky the injury wasn't worse. He was in a collar, had no movement and no feeling in his neck. In January 2008 Noel had his first trip to the Casa. After his first round of the Casa treatment he had the first feeling in his neck. Three to four months later he regained full movement and feeling in his neck. 
     Noel attributes the cause of his fall to rheumatoid arthritis. In 2009 he did not yet feel any results for his arthritis and in 2010 test results revealed bone cancer. Noel came to the Casa again and he felt the Entities give him an inner message, which was not to take a medicine for the arthritis. It was found that a drug for his arthritis was responsible for causing the bone cancer. He stopped taking it and started feeling better. Noel continued to come to the Casa every year. 
     In 2012 Noel was on morphine 3 times a day, but with his treatment at the Casa he was able to reduce his dose to 1 time per day. His pain had gotten better six weeks after going home. During 2012 Noel stopped all the pain meds and never returned to them. 
     In 2014 Noel reported the stiffness from the arthritis subsiding, the last thing to go. Noel now reports being in 100% in perfect health. and he has had his joints tested and blood results to prove he is clear of the arthritis. Noel is clear of the bone cancer as well and says he feels like he is out of jail. 
     I encouraged Noel to ask the Entity if his treatment is now complete, and he was given 3 crystal beds and an intervention, and he will check again with the Entity on his next trip. It is really important to get the medical all clear, then hear that your treatment is complete from the Entity. Noel will check with the Entity again on his next trip here to the Casa.

Casa Guides ~ Crystal Bed Practitioner

Grace remembers having the gift to commune with angels and divine spirits ever since she was a little girl. Her Grandmother, Rosa de Cozensa, was a very well-known Shaman in Argentina who had visitors come from bordering countries in South America to receive healing. Starting at the very tender age of five, Grandmother Rosa would bring Grace to witness her healing sessions. Once Grace turned thirteen, Grandmother Rosa taught her her divine healing techniques during 3-4 hours every Sunday, for approximately three years before she passed. 

After reading the 'Autobiography of a Yogi' by Paramahansa Yogananda, Grace developed a very profound interest for Yoga and she enrolled In the Yoga Institute of Pantanjali in Argentina where she obtained her license as a yoga instructor after 500 hours of devoted study and arduous practice.  She then began to give conferences on Yoga in Colombia, Venezuela and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Grace was rewarded for her dedication and effort by being named the Chief Administrator for La Gran Fraternidad Universal (the Universal Great Brotherhood), a non - profit organization based on Yoga as a way of life.

She founded the Tecoteca Yoga Institute, one of the most famous and successful Yoga Institutes in Caracas, Venezuela. In the early beginning, she was the only yoga instructor, thus, taught all 8 classes of yoga per day during the first two years to keep the Institute running. She obtained the recognition for her merits and numerous awards from the Yoga Alliance in Caracas, Venezuela. 

She came to the United States in 1978 to be closer to Paramahansa Yogananda's Self Realization Fellowship where she worked in the Los Angeles Headquarters Ashran in Mount Washington for seven years while becoming a Kriyaban in 1982. She continues to be an active Devotee faithfully following and practicing Paramahansa Yogananda's Teachings.

In 2005, Grace visited John of God with Carlos, her husband, who was diagnosed with a serious illness. John of God cured him and they became devoted to him and the Casa de Dom Inacio. Both are Official Casa Guides authorized by John of God, Grace since March 2006, and Carlos since March 2011. They are Daughter and Son of the Casa, Reiki Masters and OrdainedMinisters. Grace and Carlos speak Spanish and English, currently working on Portuguese and Italian. They co-founded the Terra Angels Sanctuary in Oceanside, California, a Center for Spiritual Living where they host a Crystal Bed, and lead retreats throughout the World. Their caring guidance and monitoring of all the practical details of your visit creates a supportive transformational environment that allows you to focus completely on your healing

Casa Babies Healing Stories 
 from Melinda Holland
~Casa Orientation Volunteer~

Story 1
I would like to give a testimony about my son's healing tongue tie. For many months after being born he was unable to suck the  milk and this inturn reduced my milk supply. This led to a distressed baby. His photo was presented to the entities of casa every 40 days for healing for four months and he is cured now of tongue tie without any surgery. No more crying during feeding and a happy baby now. I also would like to thank the entities for blessing me with this beautiful child after a terrible miscarriage. I came to the casa for treatment and healing of miscarriage and was in turn blessed with a pregnancy only 3 months after miscarriage. This is the one place in the world where I feel so welcomed by God. Casa is heaven on earth and I am so grateful to have found this beautiful place where peace and love is unconditional. 

Story 2
A woman came here to The Casa De Dom Inacio from South Africa because she  couldn't have a baby. Soon after she returned home she became pregnant with twin girls. For the people who can´t have babies, then have a baby as a result of the treatment at the Casa de Dom Inacio, we name those babies a "Casa Baby". This same woman  had  menopause symptoms and thought it was all over for her. She received some herbs from the Casa, went back home, soon after became pregnant and had  another boy . All are healthy and happy.

Story 3 
Then this woman befriended a second pregnant  woman, who was having trouble with antibodies, meaning the blood of the mother and the baby were incompatible which leads to further complications. The second woman´s details were sent to Grainne to place in the triangle. Later Grainne got an email from South Africa, to confirm that the mother and baby were ok. The doctors thought the test results were a mistake and re ran them, but in reality it was the Entities fixing the situation. Grainne said the turn around took 2 days. Finally Grainne just received an email to say the baby arrived naturally, with no blood issues and that both mother and baby are healthy and happy. 

Update on Returning to Current 
The protocols changed in February 2017 concerning the time you can return to Current after Spiritual Intervention.

You must rest 24 hours, and then wait another 24 hours before returning to Current, thus 48 hours. This translates into 4 sessions away from the Current including the session you received your intervention in.

   Because the current room energies and work is very powerful, Y ou can return ONLY to Current Room 1 or The Medium´s Current Room after your 48 hours  "keep away time" following any intervention, even if you have permission and normally sit in a different room  for the 1st session, after your intervention.

After the 24 hours, you can come into the Casa Gardens and have crystal beds and the soup. After 24 hours you can observe the interventions on stage if you have not seen them. If you have an intervention, you can not go in the second time line until your revision session is passed. You can go in the lines one time only per day. Only go into current if you are feeling good, if not rest more. 

The other rules that apply to interventions have 
remained the same. 

Please go to the orientations on a return trip to the Casa as things change.

    John of God Casa Crystal Beds  
Around the World
     Those of you who have been to the Casa will be familiar with the Crystal bed - the Entity regularly 'prescribes' sessions on the bed to help supplement the healing process. There are twelve, plus, crystal beds located in buildings adjacent to the main Casa building. Each bed has 7 quartz crystals suspended above the bed which align with and correspond to, the 7 chakras of the human body. A session consists of lying on the bed for approximately 20 minutes, or more, while listening to soothing music. The crystals radiate color to the respective chakras to cleanse them and to balance their energies. The Entity may prescribe crystal-bed therapy for you, or you may choose to have a therapeutic session on your own.
     On our website, we provide a list of individuals who were given special permission from the Entity to purchase one of these crystal beds, thereby enabling them to offer these unique treatment sessions all around the world.
     The following are new additions and updates to the list of individuals worldwide who offer crystal bed treatments. The full listing of crystal beds around the world is available on the Friends of the Casa website, in our
