It’s been about 4 months now since I returned from Abadiânia – a small town in the state of Goiás, Brazil and home to a famous Brazilian medium and “psychic surgeon” known as— João de Deus (God of God) – please click on link to read more about this man.
Brazil was an amazing place to visit – the people are so friendly, welcoming and spiritual. I do yearn to go back in the future, and I know that those close to me in my soul pod, also feel this pull. This trip impacted me almost beyond words, so it has been very very difficult to find a way to explain to others what one could mostly describe as an ‘energy’ or feeling of coming home spiritually. I went there to find peace within myself, to be able to heal on levels of my being that I could not access myself on a soul level. I recorded my experience as best I could in a journal, but it is just the iceberg, and I’m not sure I can still convey the depth of experience.
For me, the very trip was very much a pilgrimage, and I was not in best physical form due to ill health. At one point I was so distressed if I would ever make it to Brazil, that I could barely breathe, and was in a state of anxiety. The reason for this was because the Chilean volcano erupted in early June and affected all flights to Argentina, and from there to Brazil.So to paint the picture for you, my travel plan involved flying from Perth to Sydney, from there to Buenos Aires, from there to Sao Paulo on route to Brasillia and then by car to Abadiânia. After 3 cancellations/delays I flew to Sydney still not knowing if I was going to be flying to Argentina. When I got to Sydney, all seemed to be okay, however they then changed the departure gates and a large number of travellers and I had to make our way to a different gate much further away. I met two of my travelling companions at the airport and we eventually boarded the plane. But once we were seated it become apparent that there was a problem. The Chilean ash had now moved to the Pacific ocean affecting the standard flight path to South America. We sat on the plane for two hours, whilst four technicians worked on developing a new flight path to Buenos Aires. Eventually we were on our way, but it was one of the most turbulent flights I had ever been on, and to be honest after the dramas of getting to this point, I did wonder if I was going to make IT!
By the time I got to Buenos Aires and enjoyed a day or two there, we were then on our way to the airport to fly to Brazil only to find the airport shut down and requiring us to stay another night in BsAs. The next day upon arriving early at the airport we missed the crowd and got aboard the plane very quickly. However, because of the crowds of people, other passengers were delayed and so our flight was delayed leaving resulting in us arriving in Sao Paulo and missing our connecting flight. By the time we go to Brasillia, and taxi ride hour and a half to Abadiânia, it was close to midnight.
We arrived at the Pousada (Luz Divina) in darkness – very tired – and would need to be awake early for the first visit to see John of God at the Casa, (the healing centre) which attracts up to 2,000 people from all over Brazil, and the world, each day. Even though it was so late at night, our beautiful guide Ann was there to warmly welcome us, and show us our personal rooms. I was in room number 12, which was beautifully adorned with spiritual images, bathroom, room with hammock and desk, and felt so peaceful. Ann left me a welcoming card with Archangel Michael and lovely blessed Citrine rosary necklace, which would be soon charged up with even more love and energy.
Abadiânia was to become my spiritual home for the month, and the catalyst for healing, a connection to soul, lifelong friendships, stories of miracles, and awakening.
