For the most part, The Entities and John of God are now doing the  Distance Healing work, scanning the photo, sending teams of Spirit Light workers "directly" out to work with the person in the photo with no intermediary needed. Where as before the Entities used a "surrogate" or a person to "stand in" for the Spiritual Intervention for the individual in the photograph.   
If you are interested in having your photograph presented for Distance Healing with the Casa Herbs, contact a Casa Guide who does the service of presenting photos to John of God.

                        Featured Casa Entity     
                            Jose Penteado 
by Peter Waugh ~ Official Casa Guide
    Friends of the Casa Guide Facilitator 
"Historically Jose was the loyal lieutenant of St. Ignatius. 
He was apparently quite "a man about town".  Penteado means having his hair combed across his head......Maybe a little bald ...
His claim to fame, in his life, was his resistance to St. Ignatius, laying down his arms before the  Black Madonna of Montserrat and encouraged a number of his troops do the same. This meant they were no longer prepared to be soldiers and were devoting their lives to Peace and Service. Jose was so upset, that he cut off the head of St. Ignatius's donkey. Jose Penteado spent the next few centuries atoning for this act. As part his atonement process he is now working as one of the Entities, of the Casa de Dom Inacio, through John of God, 
in the service of the health and awakening of all those who attend, 
both incarnate and discarnate. 
He has quite a flare to him. During Casa sessions, he can be very chatty, playful and comical. At times he has needed some instruction from both the other Entities and volunteers on the appropriate decorum, 
 while he is working in the Casa."

Prayers For Medium Joao

By Grainne McEntee
Friends of the Casa Lead Reporter
Casa Current Room Facilitator

 In Sept 2015, Medium Joao went for his usual check up and was detained in hospital for a lengthy examination and a long surgery.
His recuperation was swift, considering the seriousness of the condition.
True to form, he attended the Omega event in New York despite his weakened condition, and powerful healing energy was experienced by all.
After five weeks, his return to Abadiania was most welcome, as the town stalls somewhat when he isn't present, physically. However, in his absence, there were reports of miraculous healing and unexplained scars manifesting on peoples'  bodies here in this small town, in the heart of Brazil. The Entities know no borders, boundary's, time, or space. 
The work continues, regardless.
Although he was considerably weaker on his return and had lost quite a bit of weight, he was immediately back into the intensity of the work. It was particularly noticeable, when the Entity incorporated, how robust Medium Joao was and how depleted he was when the Entity left his body.
Nonetheless, Joao de Deus soldiered on through thick and thin .
As the numbers coming to the Casa continue to increase, Christmas saw a welcome reprise, and a relaxed Med Joao worked tirelessly through Christmas and the New Year. The atmosphere in the Casa was electric .
Steadily, John of God has come through a very rough period and on Friday Feb 5th a smiling Medium Joao came out toThe Main Hall and addressed the crowd:

"Christ is always present here in the Casa. 
I love each and every one of you. 
Thank you for your prayers from all over the world.
You have helped me through a very difficult time in 
my mission [of over 60 years.]
St. Rita of Cassia appeared to me on a cloud when I was eight years old. She was very beautiful, and indicated to me  
the life I was embarking on.
She is known as the Saint of  Impossible cases.
I have just been given a clean bill 
of health from my earth doctors.
They are astonished at how well and fast I have healed.
Do not abandon the treatment of your earth doctors, 
they are missionaries and messengers of 
God and the Entities work closely through them.
Your faith will heal you."
We salute Medium Joao in his swift recovery back to 100% health. There were days he felt he could not continue. Our prayers helped him through.  As we continue to support this extraordinary man and his extraordinary mission, in gratitude for him saying "Yes" to helping humanity in this way.
Prayer can truly change our lives!

Surrender Expectations

By Grainne McEntee 
Friends of the Casa Lead Reporter  
Casa Current Room Facilitator

The Entities are spirits who have had human experiences and know how much weight we give, in the human condition, to the meaning of every word. Show not tell, is the way, usually, the spirit world communicates.  We, in the physical world, here on earth, speak a dense language loaded with our own interpretation. The  Divine Power intuits  the language of the heart, no words, just vibration.
When we go in the lines, during the Casa session, to speak to the Entity, we are expecting an answer, in our own physical, 
limited perception and we tend to analyze every single word.
In our exchanges with the Entity ,there is a communication taking place, a vibrational exchange, which cannot be adequately explained in mere words. 
Because the Divine Power speaks through vibration, rather than with physical words,  it is very difficult, for the higher realms to come down here, and communicate with us directly, in our human modality. We need to interpret the messages from the 
Entities, using the heart energy. Our frustration begins when 
we forget about our intuition, the language of our senses.
 The exercise of going into the lines, at the Casa and not getting a concrete reply, in our limited understanding, is an enormous lesson in itself. There is no point whatsoever in joining the lines, over and over again, 
until we get the answer we are expecting. 
Not only is this a giant waste of time, it expends too much energy and puts unnecessary pressure on Medium Joao, in Entity. 
The answers lie within us; we have the wisdom deep inside. 
The first thing we need to do is to surrender expectations. 
This is easier said than done. This takes practice. 
The profound lessons in the words of Dom Ignacio, always seem to ring through, in everything we do, in association with the energy of 
the Casa, and of course in our everyday lives, in general...  

"For those who believe no words are necessary . For those who do not believe no amount of words are sufficient."

A recorded interview with Heather Cumming

Friends of the Casa Newsletter Publisher


      During my July, 2015 visit to the Casa in Brazil, I had the pleasure to sit down with Heather Cumming to talk about some of her experiences at the Casa. We talked while the birds sang and the butterflies sipped, in her beautiful garden, at Rai Devi, her home and guest house pousada, where she hosts her guided groups to the Casa.  
     In the past when I recorded an interview with Heather, I would transcribe her stories in writing, trying to keep her wording as close a possible, to how she expressed her experiences. This time we are using "Sound Cloud", an internet audio service, so you can hear the birds in the background and Heather's beautiful soothing voice, and eloquent intonation, as she talks about the importance of the post "intervention" 24 hour rest period. 
speak about how to best use the 24 hour rest period.

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.

One recent change, is that after each intervention, one can only return to the lines (except the bye-bye line if leaving), the current rooms, or volunteer for an intervention after one week (at the Revision session).
NOTE: These new protocols may change week to week session to session.

After the 24 hour rest period, visits to the Casa gardens, view/meditation deck and verandas, soup area, Casa store, crystal baths etc are OK before being able to enter the halls and current rooms.

Because the current room energies and work is very powerful, it is strongly suggested that you sit only in the first current room - the "Mediums Current" - for the first session after your "keep away time" following any intervention, even if you have permission and normally sit in a different room.

The Entities at Work

By Melinda Holland
Casa Volunteer ~ Friends of the Casa Website Liaison 

A Swiss man was recently here, and he is to be married to the love of his life this July, and they first met 12 years ago. Everyone was telling him to ask the Entities about her and he said, "no I dont need to, this feels right in my heart." Before he came to Abadiania he, and wife, to be, did the old fashioned thing, "he loves me, he loves me not", on a flower in Switzerland. Of course the flower came up with "he loves me". This man goes to current one day, and when the session is complete, opens his eyes, and looks down at his feet, and there is the exact same flower he and his beloved used in their, "he loves me or not" ritual in Switzerland. This man was so overwelmed he cried, 
tears of joy as he told all of us his story!!!

A man came to the Casa and decided he wanted 3 small triangles in gold on chains, one for our colleague in orientation. Then when he went  back there were none in the bookstore. The choice was bronz, gold or silver but he only liked the gold sort. He then told the assistant and both of them double checked the boxes and no gold triangles. So the man went outside and said a prayer to the Entities that he wanted 3 gold triangles on chains. He went back into the store and pulled 3 gold triangles out of the box when there were none just before. Both he and the assistant were astounded. Of course the man was very happy about this.


One day a friend of ours a Casa medium wanted to put a prayer in the triangle and it was a Tuesday so the Casa was being cleaned and there was no access open anywhere. Eventually she found her way with her prayer note for the triangle to the back at the King Soloman triangle. But there was a new person praying for a long time at the triangle . My friend was getting more impatient so she tried to put her note in the King Soloman picture and looked aross and saw that the man had put for each of the members of his family in the triangle 12 or so perfectly folded notes in origami style  in a violet colour and was praying very hard with great dedication for each one. Then she realised his dedication and her note and realised what she had asked for was already manifested, which was Dear Entities please help me with more patience and to release my pattern of anger. We all laughed at this story.

    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 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
Casa Crystal Bed Section
