   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 five 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 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.

The following individuals have purchased Crystal beds from the Casa and have got approval from the Entity to offer treatment sessions at home.

  Alice Salazar Almeida, London  
  My name is Alice Salazar Almeida. I'm originally from Brazil and I've been living in London for the past 11 years. I have just returned from the Casa where I was granted a Crystal Bed by the entities.

I was trained as a Medical Doctor in Brazil in the early 80's but have moved on to a holistic practice. I've been working with Vibrational Medicine for some time now. I was given permission to add the crystal bed to my practice in a clinic in London.

Alice Salazar Almeida
  Deepika Avanti, USA  

I have become a Medium/guide to the Casa Spring 2006 and bought a Crystal Bed Nov. 2005. I bought the crystal bed to help others experience the amazing "miracles" that I experienced 6 trips meditating 16 weeks with the Entities.

I asked the Entity to help me know God in every way, to kinesthetically sense God, to feel divinely loved, to hear, see, be moved by, do automatic writing, intuit God without a doubt exactly. His deep voice that day answered, "Exalto?", "Sim, exalto," I replied. And like all the other questions, this one was answered exactly.

I was given a class on myself, told to teach it and to write a book on it. The impact of this connection with God, with Christ, with the Entities was my falling in love, devoting my life and following Thy Will with total gratitude. My whole motivation for all I do changed from worldly reasons to love God. I did my best to follow guidance the last fifty years but I never expected this could happen to me.

So I bought the crystal bed both because of guidance and because nothing as wonderful as this connection being in love with God has happened to me before. I find that the bed helps people connect to Spirit in a tangible way and as one client described "tenderizes" us opening our hearts. The class I am teaching is called, Embracing God, Healing Physically, Mentally, Emotionally and Spiritually through Love.
Anyone can attend by calling USA mountain time 5:30pm 1 641 207-7245 code 303303# on Thurs. see my website (suggested donation $30 each class Sept 14 through Jan.) I offer a free channelled guided meditation with Marcus Vianna's music played at the Casa at 7-8 pm mountain time on Thurs. I dedicate this meditation to world love, to us loving ourselves, each other as brothers and sisters, and to loving all life on earth. I have never felt so much love as with the Entities meditating. I feel this divine love constantly moving me to tears with this meditation opening my heart. I hope this helps all of us in this way. Soon I hope to have this be available weekly on ipods.

Blessings to all and my millio
n thanks to Joao for his serving the Entities and helping me serve also. With love, Deepika

Jo-Anne and Goran Barron, Australia

Dear Friends of the Casa,
Thank you for the opportunity of submitting some information about our crystal bed.

My husband Goran and I, both therapists from Sydney, Australia finally travelled to Abadiania in July/August of this year. The whole experience of our stay in Abadiania was the most wondrous of our lives. The healings we received have permeated us spiritually, emotionally and physically affecting all areas of our lives including family, friends, work.

We found the crystal chakra bed sessions we had an incredible supplement to the healings we received in (and around..) the Casa and from the Entities, we felt strongly that we would like to obtain a bed and take it back with us to Sydney, Australia to benefit our clients and ourselves.

The procedure of going in front of the Entity and asking for approval to purchase a crystal chakra bed was so humbling and moving, it was like an initiation ritual in a way - being seen as suitable and being entrusted with such a beautiful healing tool.
Our return trip to Sydney was totally incident-free and we felt that we were being accompanied all the way. It was amazing to see people all around us have their baggage opened and searched yet we were ushered past all the checkpoints all the way home, protected by the Entities of the Casa.

We have been offering crystal chakra bed sessions to our clients since the end of September. The healing transformations are wonderful to witness as tears are shed, loads lifted and chakras are energized, opened and balanced. Thank you to João, the Entities and everyone at the Casa.

Anyone interested in the crystal chakra bed sessions in Sydney, Australia - we are located in the heart of Bondi Junction and our telephone number is 02 93691248.

Blessings to all, from Jo-Anne and Goran Barron

  Meg Blanchet, OR  
  In 2003, I first came to the Casa and was granted permission to bring a Crystal Bed back home with me. While having a treatment there, I felt directed to move my client room (which entailed convincing my husband to let me have his office:) and to set up the crystal bed there. I now have a bright and cozy room with wheel chair access. The crystal bed has been a very powerful source of continued healing for me in my life as well as for my clients and friends. At least 50% of the money I receive for the Crystal treatments goes back to Abadiania as an expression of my deep gratitude. Thank you.

  Alan & Linaya Bolotin, Colorado, USA  
  Having experienced the healing magic, wisdom and beauty of the consciousness that is Brazil and especially the many integrated healing consciousnesses that work through John of God, Linaya, my wife, and I have purchased and brought back to Lyons Colorado a Crystal Bed apparatus. We offer healing sessions using the Crystal Bed technology developed by the disincarnate spirits that work with Joao through our organization, Hahn Holistic Health Centers. We can be contacted at 800-520-3822 for scheduling. Linaya is a gifted medical intuitive and energy healer and can augment these sessions with other healing tools and technologies.

Dear friends of the Casa!!!
I would like to announce one more opportunity for all those who would like to connect to the Casa through the Casa Crystal Bed. There is one more place in this Earth with permission from the Entities, actually there are two places because we have our center in two cities in Croatia.

Our hearts are open for everyone!
Thank you!

Sincerely, Tereza Brkusic (for the Center Open Hearts)

  Danielle Brooks, Montreal Canada & New York City USA  

In March of 2006 the Entities gifted me the loving honor of becoming a Medium and Daughter of the Casa and asked that I return to N. America with a Crystal Bed to include in my healing practice. It is a tremendous blessing to hold a sacred space for these Crystals and the Entities that work through them. I am based in Montreal Canada and travel to New York City once a month to offer sessions in Chelsea, Manhattan. In Montreal you are welcome to join a weekly meditation and connection with the Casa. Information evenings are also offered on occasion for those travelling to the Casa. Please email or call for further information. I look forward to connecting with you!

Much love and light,
Danielle Brooks

  Sequoia & Jack Cheney, California  
  In 1999 we were guided to Sacred Land to establish a healing center here in Watsonville, California in the center of a forest on the border of Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties. With Ceremony, Prayer and Pure Intention the Work progressed and many people have received healing and been served on all levels. In this way, Three Trees Retreat Center was born. We are Sequoia and Jack. We combine Sequoia's gift of Divine Energy Channel and Jack's gifts of Sound Healing in service to all who, on their life's journey, are guided to us. In 1993 we added the Crystal Bed to the resources we offer.

In the Spring of 2003, at Eastertime, we traveled with a group guided by Bob Dinga and Diana Rose and were blessed with the warm embrace of Spirit, Casa Dom Inacio style. Warmly welcomed by João and the Entities which serve through him, our first visit was full of joy, friendship and mysteries unveiled. The Casa showered us all, like the Sacred Waterfall itself, with healings, quickenings, clearings, and blessings. What a wonderful thing it was to experience the Crystal Bed Healing power; what a marvelous tool! Everyone felt it's profound effects and could see how central and necessary a service it provides in opening and clearing the chakras. You can literally feel the Entities working through this Divine Technology. One of the great stories told at the Casa is how João was given the vision by Dom Inacio to create the Crystal Bed, that in following this guidance the wonderful tool came to be. What a profound, campassionate service to Humanity.

It is with deep graditude that we accepted the guidance and permission of João and the Entities to bring a bed back to California and incorporate it in the healing work at Three Trees. Since that time hundreds of people have benefited from the combination of elements; the Light of Spirit channeled through Sequoia, the soothing vibrations of Jack's Healing Sounds and the Powerful assistance of pure crystal and Spirit made possible by the Crystal Bed.

We have returned to the Casa twice since that first visit and plan a return visit in the Spring of 2005. We love the deep wonderful work which is being done there and the many people we have come to know and love living and working there. We have also grown close to those who are part of the Casa family from other parts of the world. This is an ever expanding family and connection, provinding an endless stream of simple happy moments. Every monday morning a group of us who have traveled to the Casa meet and have breakfast at a little diner in our area called the "Lighthouse".

We cannot thank João enough for his work and guidance. In the same spirit we acknowledge the love and sacrifice of countless others who have been our guides and support in this journey. We welcome any and all who are interested to contact us. We stand ready to aid you on your journey in any way we can. Many who have returned to the United States from The Casa visit us at Three Trees for a "tune-up" and renewal.

To contact us and schedule a session call us at 831-768-7592. Our e-mail address is You may also reach us through our website

With Much Love,
Sequoia and Jack
  Gail Coles, Australia  
  I had my first trip to Abadiania inAugust 2003, I was very ill suffering Scleroderma frightened and needing hope, I had seen an interview on a Current Affair program in Australia about the healings of John of God and decided I must go, in the weeks that followed, something was just calling me there. I have since had another two trips to Brazil and one to New Zealand, I was given permission from the Entities to bring home a crystal bed with me, I am so grateful for this and it has helped so much in my own healing. I would like to offer this treatment to others.

I have looked at photos of myself in 2003 and now in 2007 and I look like a different person, the love and energy of the casa is amazing and I have never felt anything like it before, I am looking forward to returning there and thanking them for all they have given me.

Thank you

  I am a medium, certified Hypnotherapist, healer, Reiki Master, psychic, author of Vanishing Veil, and I give 5 seminars assisting clients in their personal and spiritual growth. I am currently writing my second book, and I conduct a monthly meditation group.

I have become an official guide to the Casa, bringing groups to be healed. I limit the number of people I take on my tours to ensure that everyone gets their maximum time and support. In 2005, (my third year in bringing groups), I'll be taking groups January 17th, April 11th, July 11th and October 10th.

I became a guide because I feel that there is no such thing as a coincidence. In a two-week period, three of my clients mentioned John of God to me. I had only heard of him once before that, many years ago). So, I knew I was supposed to go. I told my monthly meditation group that I intuitively knew that I was supposed to go to experience John of God for myself, and then take groups. My second day at the Casa, my Lacto Intolerance and my Hyatal Hernia - both of which caused me lots of discomfort, for many years, were healed.

While there, I was given permission by entity to bring groups, and was told that the entities would support me in bringing people to the casa. Three months later, I took my first group. Everyone I have taken has agreed that it’s a profound life changing experience.

I truly feel blessed to have listened to my guidance and to have received permission and blessings from the entities to bring a Crystal Bath back to San Jose, California and to incorporate it with my other healing modalities. The Entities work through the Crystal Bath, as if you were in Abadiania.

Most of my clients who have used it, feel, "Light, spacey and extremely relaxed" after a session. Many say they feel the sensation of being worked on by Spirit. Some float back into past lives.

I use the music that was used when I've had my many Crystal Baths at the Casa. I found that using the music I use while teaching people to meditate, seemed too intense for playing with the Crystal Bath.

For more information on me, or any questions, I can be contacted by email at or visit my website at

I have a crystal bed since 2002. It was the first one made and was quite a fun experience taking it to the airport in two huge wooden boxes - they are much smaller and compact now.

  Diana Dentinger, Turin, Italy  

Two weeks before my first visit to Abadiania in December 2004, the description of the crystal bed treatment captured my eye on the "Friends of the Casa" site. My trip to the Casa came about out of a divine combination of meetings and synchronicity that had started in June. I was mainly going out of curiosity and for spiritual confirmation, not needing though imminent physical healing. On the second day there I asked the Entities, "Is having a crystal bed in my home in Italy part of my life path?" And the reply was, "Yes, it is good for you and your family and you can offer it to your friends."

As a child growing up in the USA I remember my love for the mineral kingdom. I was always collecting rocks and crystals, fascinated by their shapes and colors, as if each had it's own personality. Funny to think back on my pet rock days and to know now the deeper meaning and understanding of their healing qualities.

Anyway, I was so excited, I knew it was the beginning of a new phase in my life. When I returned home to my husband and 4 children, I had somehow felt the need to justify the purchase as a potential source of economic support. Only recently have I discovered the interior abundance this apparatus has brought and the richness of new friends, an unestimatable value for my family and my growth processes.

I had been timid though about proposing the crystal bed treatment until June 2005, when one afternoon I intensely burned my right hand, the palm and all the 4 fingers had been seared by moving an unknowingly incandescent metal motor. My first reaction was to soak my hand in cold water, then I got a flash, "Use the crystals!!!" Feeling the intense discomfort I placed my hand just inches under the light blue light of the throat chakra, turned on the apparatus, my power of intent was strong and I asked out loud, "Entities of the Casa of Don Inacio, please repair the burned cells of my right hand."

I waited and observed the transformation. In only 7 minutes, the burning red stripes had "disappeared" or rather "evaporated". My hand was completely back to normal. My gratitude was immense and in that moment I fully understood the potential of the crystal bed.

I realized I was not doing justice to the Casa by keeping the bed un-advertised, so I organized a weekend event in October "Energy Wellness Body Spirit" with mini conferences, seminars, individual massages and of course crystal bed treatments. It was the perfect occasion to "offer" (as were the original words from the Entities) 20 minute sessions to all who were interested. It was so rewarding and the 70 participants can't wait till I organize the next one in May. For everyone's information, the event was held in a villa where I started taking classes in Psychobiology in January (so I knew the priest director) right outside of the city, Villa Santa Croce di Don Ignazio di Loyola. Quite a coincidence, wouldn't you say!

I visited Joao in Germany in March of 2005, then took my whole family to Brazil in August 2005 and again in Germany in December 2005 - four different occasions in one year. I guess what I had needed in June was proof of a visible transformation to have complete faith in the connection with the Casa. Every time I visit Joao and the Entities, they tell me they are "preparing" me. I do not work daily in the healing field rather my real profession is teaching interpersonal communication skills in companies. I feel though that I do have a vocation in the healing area and this word "preparing" brings me joy that there is so much good out there that I can do. Both through the burning "accident" and at the Casa, I came in touch with the power of our thoughts, how they create our every minute. This is the invisible side that often cannot be proved, but has the biggest impact on our serenity and happiness.

All who have tried my crystal bed have had deep interior journeys, received messages from their spiritual guides, felt the presences of ascended masters, been treated "in person" by the Entities of the Casa and enjoyed wonderful sensations of peace and harmony. I thank Joao, Ricardo, all the volunteers, and the Entities for their constant love and support on my journey.

The San Francisco Crystal Baths by Claire Eckman

In October of 2002, I brought home a Crystal Bed from the Casa de Dom Inacio. (Actually, I did not bring the "bed" home - because the bed is simply a massage table - but instead, I brought home the apparatus which functions above the bed.) When word got out that I was providing this service, I began to receive email inquiries about the Crystal Baths, from others who were considering purchasing a Crystal Bed themselves. Most of these inquiries were from people whose intention it was, to turn a profit - and so they also had questions about marketing and effectiveness. For people who make such inquiries, I am afraid I cannot help them much - because my practice does not fall along these lines at all - and I truly believe that the experiences with the Crystal Baths will differ, according to the intentions of the provider. Of course, people have to support themselves financially - and spiritually oriented people are frequently looking for ways to combine their spiritual practice with a means of earning a living. Maybe this works for some people, to a certain extent - but personally, I have found that mixing intentions in this way dilutes and pollutes the spiritual experience to a large degree - so I have chosen to avoid this all together. If I need any proof about the validity of this approach, all I have to do is to look at João's practice as a medium - and take note that he has involved himself in businesses outside of his spiritual practice, in order to support himself financially - and therefore, he keeps his spiritual intentions rather clean. I realize that there is a charge for Crystal Baths at the Casa, but the situation is somewhat different there. At the Casa, the Crystal Baths are a modality which is offered in a highly charged spiritual environment. They are a way to assist people in their preparation for further work at the Casa - but they are not the means of bringing in the spiritual energy. Our situation is a little different, because we use the Crystal Baths as a means for bringing in the Casa's spiritual energies - not as an adjunct modality. Of course, our Crystal Baths function in much the same way - it is only that we have to work a little harder to bring that energy in. Therefore, I believe that it is probably more important that our intentions be as pure as possible, so that we can make a very clean and tight connection with Spirit. It also seems to be my own spiritual path to learn about "service" in this way - a practice of giving love, and loving giving - without any other intention accept love itself. Personally, I can see no way of doing this well, if one has any expectations of getting something in return. Of course, this type of "service" does bring forth many blessings - and the benefits of receiving in this way, are that your blessings are not limited by expectations - because there really are no expectations. The Spiritist mediums that I have met in Brazil, and also the Fulni-O Indians, agree that if one charges for spiritual healing, their healing abilities may be compromised. Since I do not wish to compromise anyone's healing in any way, I have also made the choice to practice without any financial motives of any kind - and I trust that God and his spiritual workers, will make sure that my financial needs are provided for in other ways. I realize that this is not everyone's path - but it is the only path that works for me - and it is how I operate my Crystal Baths. I truly believe that these honest attempts at pure intentions, make a very big difference in the energy at our Crystal Baths. Others who do not operate in this way, may not experience the same things.

I purchased my Crystal Bed directly from João de Deus, after being blessed with an extraordinary experience during my first trip to the Casa more than two years ago. I originally came to the Casa in a very bad state of health, and the ordeal of traveling to Brazil was arduous. At that time, I could barely leave my bed on most days - and I was taking Demerol for pain, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. My husband accompanied me, but he was in no way a "believer". During our first week together at the Casa, we both received healing in many unexpected ways - and I found myself constantly praying for guidance to direct me to some way that I could "give back". Unfortunately, I was slow to recognize the messages of guidance being offered to me, by way of some extraordinary experiences in the Crystal Baths (I suppose that I thought that everyone received visitations from deceased loved ones during their Crystal Bath sessions!) The Entities had to work extra hard to get my attention about the power of the crystals - and eventually they blessed me with the spontaneous appearance of a large crystal in my upturned palm, one morning while I was sitting in the first current room at the Casa. This event left me speechless, but when I was finally able to speak, I found myself asking my husband for permission to purchase a Crystal Bed, to offer to others in San Francisco - as a way of "service".

My husband had also been blessed with an extraordinary experience in the current room, and since he was still in this highly impressed state - he easily agreed to hand over $3,000 US dollars, for the purchase of a Crystal Bed. We only had one day left before our flight home - and we did not have $3,000 cash with us - but we made arrangements for a Western Union money transfer - and met with João and a translator that afternoon, to finalize the purchase. We conveyed our gratitude to the Entity during the afternoon session, and the Entity offered us his blessings, for the operation of our Crystal Baths in San Francisco. We left Brazil the next day, with three large boxes of Crystal Bed apparatus.

About two weeks later, I set up the Crystal Bed in my husband's acupuncture office in the basement of our house - however, I really had no idea how I would manage to provide these services - because although my health was now improving, I was still very sick, and in bed most of the week. My first month or two as a Crystal Bath provider was very challenging due to my health problems. It took all the strength I could muster, just to bathe and dress myself in preparation for seeing people in the office - and I was often in a lot of pain and drugged during the sessions. I would pull myself together just enough to fake at being "normal", then I would put people on the Crystal Bed (with a few instructions) and quickly retreat to the next room to lie down and watch the clock. It was very difficult for me to do this extremely simple bit of work - but I persevered. I carried on for about two months this way, and during that time I discovered that when I sat in "current" (in the next room) people frequently had more intense experiences (and so did I). Sitting in current, while others were in the Crystal Baths, soon became the norm for our office, and many people came by our office solely for the purpose of sitting in current - even without a Crystal Bath appointment. One day, a Brazilian chiropractor who lived in Los Angeles contacted me. He was preparing for his first trip to the Casa, and he wanted to know more about the Crystal Baths. I made arrangements for him to come to our office to see the Crystal Bed, and in preparation for his visit, I set the office up in a way that would mimic the atmosphere of the Casa (I played music by Roberto Carlos, and ran a video of Casa surgeries in the waiting room, and arranged alters with candles and pictures of Casa-related energies). By the time this man arrived at our office, the energy had risen significantly - and it was so palpable that my body felt like it was being brushed by tiny needles as I walked across the room. Because of this noticeable rise in energy, I decided to make this preparation a permanent routine during our Crystal Bath days, and I believe that these audio and visual tools have been quite valuable to the overall experience at our Crystal Baths in San Francisco. The energy continued to rise in our office - and although the intensity did not approach that of the Casa's, it was still a very amazing and worthwhile experience. Gradually, my health began to improve - and operating the Crystal Baths became much easier. Still, I longed to be back at the Casa - because I felt as though I was losing my "connection" to Spirit.

During my next trip to the Casa, I decided to ask the Entity for guidance which would help me to increase my ability to connect to Spirit when I returned home. Because I feel that the Casa's location provides a very valuable energetic link, enabling us to access a very direct connection with Spiritual energies - I wondered if there was any place in California which might also act like a portal to this caliber of energy. If there was such a place, I would be willing to go there regularly to "connect" with Spirit. During my second week at the Casa, I brought a topographical map of California to the Entity, so that I would be prepared just in case he wanted to mark a specific location for me. The Entity did indeed ask for a map, and I was so proud of myself for thinking ahead to bring one! I anticipated that he would be pointing out some idyllic location in the Sierras, or near Mt. Shasta - maybe some place where there were large deposits of quartz crystals. He took one look at my map, and shook his head - saying that he needed a map of where I lived - not this map. There was no time to ask him any further questions - so I rushed off to my pousada after the session ended, and I downloaded several maps of San Francisco. The next day, I returned to the Casa to meet with the Entity. I was filled with anticipation about this meeting, but I wondered what I might do if he marked an "X" on a random street in San Francisco - and it turned out to be some hardware store in the middle of Chinatown! Would I actually have the nerve to go to this place and sit there in current, trying to achieve a connection? When it was my turn to approach the Entity, I handed him the maps. He appeared very disappointed. He handed the maps back to me, and he instructed me to hand-draw maps of my property in San Francisco - including the rooms in my house. I only had one more day left at the Casa, so if I didn't get this right, there would be no opportunity to approach him again. That night, I spent hours in the dining room of our pousada, drawing diagrams of our property and our house in San Francisco - and trying my best to render all three stories of our old Victorian house, on sheets of binder paper, to scale. The next day I handed him these diagrams, and he handed them right back to me. He seemed to be getting frustrated with me now, and he said, "Where is your Crystal Bed?" I filed through my papers quickly, and handed him the diagram of our basement office, where we keep the Crystal Bed. He appeared a bit relieved. He then began writing something on the diagram, and then he dropped the diagram into the basket next to his chair. He then told me, "The Entities will now come to your Crystal Bed." Although it made perfect sense that this would be a good location for a strong connection to the Casa's energies, I was a little surprised - and I wondered what it would be like to live in a house where an energetic portal to the Entity world existed! I returned home and resumed my Crystal Bath schedule immediately - and sure enough, there was a very distinct change. People on the Crystal Bed were experiencing more "visions" and unusual physical sensations, and people in the current room were feeling the energy more intensely. I was also being propelled through sudden and intense energetic changes, which created an almost constant vibration in my whole body while the Crystal Baths were in session. I regularly saw visions and received messages about the people who laid on the Crystal Bed, and my experiences in the current room changed with each new participant entering the office. Also, the buzzing sensations in the center of my palms were growing stronger, and my hands had become so sensitive that I could physically detect vibratory levels all around me. I had the strongest urge to use my hands on people during the Crystal Bath sessions, but I resisted because I wasn't sure that this was appropriate. On my next visit to the Casa, I asked the Entity about the changes in the Crystal Baths, and I also asked about my hands. He told me that the Entities are now sending energy through the bodies of the people at our Crystal Baths, but they are not performing surgeries - so there is no need for surgery restrictions after their sessions. He also said that the energy that I was feeling in my hands was the energy of a medium, and I could use this energy to help people with their healing at our Crystal Baths in San Francisco.

I have returned to the Casa roughly every three months, since October of 2002 - and each time, the vibratory level of my body seems to become stronger and more constant. I now perform private healing sessions, in addition to operating the Crystal Baths - and recently, a few of us have begun to meet as a group after the sessions, to engage in intense prayer. The gratitude that I feel in my heart, for being allowed to heal in a way that is also helping others, is immense.

If anyone is interested in setting up Crystal Baths in their area, and is willing to operate them without a fee, and without soliciting donations - then I will be happy to assist them in any way that I can with the details of doing so. My contact information is: My heart overflows with immeasurable thanks for the many blessings of my life - in love, Claire

  Anita Ekberg, Sweden  

In August 2004 I read an article about John of God and Casa de Dom Inacio. I just knew I had to go and two months later I was there. This journey turned out to be the most overwhelming and wonderful two weeks in my life. With me back to Sweden I had a crystal bed and I have been offering crystal bed treatments to my clients since then with amazing results.

When I first came to Casa de Dom Inacio I had back injuries and rheumatic pain which are now almost gone and healed. Such deep tissue healing is a very transformative process and my ability to work as a spiritual teacher, medium and healer has improved a lot after my visits to the Casa. During my 3rd visit I got permission to work as a guide and take groups to the Casa from Sweden and Scandinavia. At my website you can find a complete guide to the Casa in Swedish and

Thank you Joao de Deus, Entities and all the people working at the Casa

  "I have been blessed to incorporate the Crystal Bed into my psychological practice. There have been dramatic stories of a strange sense of peace from those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress and deep sadness. Children with many different behavior problems have changed without conflict. Crystal bed treatments have been a gift I can finally offer to those who have suffered without relief. I am so grateful and so blessed to have been given permission to use it in my practice."

My wife Gundi and I recently purchased a crystal bed with the permission, and it is being used in Gundi's healing arts practice in Sunnyvale with the expressed blessings of the entities.

  Crystal Bed in Canoga Park at The Holman Group.

I have made the crystal bed available to my employees and friends for the past two years. About 1/3 of my 80 employees have availed themselves of the crystal bed. They are finding relief from stress and headackes mainly. Some of my more awake friends are using the crystal bed for spiritual growth and expansion. My friend Mirabai Devi gives darshan and shaktipat, in the Indian tradition, and is finding the recovery time shortened after absorbing karma from the people that come to her for darshan/shaktipat. I mainly have been using the program that is used at the Casa and have the speed half way open. Personally I am able to take a little faster speed on the pulsing which goes in deeper and quicker. Too much speed and there is discomfort!

  Melissa Ingram, Kansas, USA  

I am extremely grateful to the Casa for making these crystal beds available to us, and to the Entities of the Casa as well as all the other healing beings who work with me and with my clients and family during crystal bath treatments.

I have been practicing energy healing for 18 years using both contemporary and time honored approaches. I work with people in energy healing sessions and classes to dissolve and transform unhealthy patterns of energy and restore health, simultaneously bringing forth their gifts and talents. My practice includes people who are dealing with a range of severe to mild physical conditions, difficult life situations, and emotional trauma as well as those people who are focusing on stress reduction and balance of life. I have observed that the crystal bath sessions seem to "till the spiritual and energetic soil" of my clients, opening them to greater shifts in chronic energy patterns, thinking, and consciousness.

I now use the crystal bed in alternating sessions with hands on energy healing treatments. Using my finely tuned and dimensional subtle sense perception, I assess the energy fields of my clients before and after crystal bath treatments. The after scans have always revealed a dramatic shift in both the surface and daily collection of energetic clutter as well as shifts in distinct and deeply held restricted patterns of energy. One client who was suffering with a bout of extreme back pain resulting, she thought, from the emotions accompanying a truly difficult life situation, initially sought out massage therapy treatments for relief. Her pain was only slightly impacted by the massages. She came in for one crystal bath and left pain free and delighted. I find that my clients, even those with long standing chronic conditions, more readily move into breakthroughs in thinking, healthy actions, and physical well being as a result of these treatments.

Most people have found the crystal baths very relaxing and soothing, and often do not want to get off the table. Many people experience warm touches on their body, others feel warm "hands" working gently inside their body, everyone seems to experience a range of pressures, tingles, tickles, inner movement, removal of inner "stuff", and the presence of loving beings around them.

In addition to ongoing improvements in awareness and health, my clients seem to also benefit in other areas of their life as if they are connected through the crystal baths to new opportunities and ideas that help to untangle and resolve difficult life situations as well as open new doors for positive life changes.

In my years as an energy healer I have often performed long distance healings on clients. This gave me the idea to see if long distance crystal baths might be effective. They are! I now offer crystal baths both in person in my office and long distance. These long distance crystal bath treatments are very useful for those people who are out of town or too ill to come in. For long distance treatments, most people feel it the same as in person. Those that see the beings of light working around them while in my office, also see them at home during a distance crystal bath. Two clients receiving distance crystal baths reported they could see the colored lights above them blinking and knew exactly when I turned on and off the crystal bath.

A highly experienced energy healing colleague of mine, with whom I attended the Barbara Brennan School of Healing years ago, finds the crystal bath one of the most powerful healing tools available. She has witnessed energy patterns containing old emotions and memories, childhood experiences, past life traumas, and limiting beliefs lift out of her during a crystal bath layer by layer, leaving her with new insights and cohesiveness. She also reports that her "hara line" has been radically strengthened and straightened and that her problematic endocrine system has been significantly improved.

I continue to marvel at the magnitude of what goes on during these sessions and the profound resource for healing that the crystal beds offer. My thanks again to the Casa de Dom Inacio.

We feel so blessed and privileged to offer this bed in a healing center to the central Colorado community. The client healing to date has been exceptional! The crystal bed was purchased on "Good Friday", a very magical and brilliant day at the Casa, particularly in the current rooms. People who received surgery were told to stay sedentary for five full days rather than for the normal 24 hours. We were told by Casa Mediums that this day is the second most powerful day at the Casa; second to Dom Ignacio's birthday that attracts thousands of people. The crystals in our bed were sitting next to the Entity on Good Friday and were also passed by the Entity for an additional blessing in the goodbye line. It was a magical event, and we welcome everyone to experience the power of the amazing crystal bed, and experience the power of love!
  Donna Rose J-Hall, New Zealand  

I am very excited and honored to announce the arrival of our crystal bed. It is like welcoming a child in to our family of which I have prepared for over the last year. Last June I was in Brazil with John of God and was given permission to bring a crystal bed back with me. At the time I was working as an independent midwife facilitating many souls transition at birth. I had previously been working as a registered nurse in holistic practice and facilitating soul transitions in passing. At the time the enterties said that I would be guiding people to John of God and working with the crystal bed and that I would no longer be working in orthodox medicine. 11 months later I am no longer working in the above fields and am very much involved in the wonderful journey of facilitating the souls journey in between ie being. I have also just been the co-ordinator of the infirmary during John of Gods tour to New Zealand of which was an honor and a blessing. Thank you to all. Donna

  Ann Joel, Sydney, Australia  

I would like to take you on my journey from a public relations professional to a spiritual healer who has been given permission to have and use one of Joao's sacred crystal beds.

I have been a public relations, media and event specialist for the past thirty years working mainly with high profile corporations, building their image via media and co-ordinating major events attended by up to 21,000 people.

Twenty eight years ago I had a major accident leaving me in a brace with a damaged neck, shoulders and a limp left arm that had little feeling in it. A year after this accident when the doctors had done all they could do a friend took me to a spiritual healer in Perth, Western Australia.

Spiritual healing was covert then, it was rarely heard of in Australia and never mentioned. After years of seeing this lady once a week my body recovered with no trace of the damaged that had been caused by the police car on one of the main highways.

I was able to then continue my work as a public relations professional, when at one of my client's offices in 1979 (a women's hospital) one of the secretaries became ill and slumped over her desk in front of me ..I cannot tell you exactly what took place over the next few minutes, it totally threw me but she was healed and I knew my life would never to be the same again.

Even though as a child I felt people's pain, I had no idea of spirituality and healing and that it would lead me to the work I love.

I started by working with close friends trying to understand more and more about what I was doing, there were no books and no-one you could ask then.

In 1995 I moved from one side of Australia Perth to Sydney, as the result of many messages coming through in my and my friends automatic writing.

Once in Sydney, I felt I had come home and it was as if a button inside of me had been stuck on fast forward. It was then that these very special teachers were placed in my path, it was as if one would come in to teach me something and as they moved on another would take their place. The first I remember so clearly was an Aboriginal healer, Gerry Bostock, who really opened my eyes to the world of spiritual healing.

My journey to become a spiritual healer would fill a book, but I just wanted to give you a brief ride and to offer thanks and blessings to all those who have assisted me along the way, in particular Caterina Pelligrino, from the Heart of Light Organisation, who now lives and works at the Casa in Brazil.

On my last visit to the Casa in March, I took one of Caterina's groups from Australia to visit Joao. During that two week visit many outstanding things happened to me and I think I experienced the most spiritual growth, I had ever experienced in my whole twenty six years of being a spiritual healer.

At that time Caterina asked if I would work with her in her Heart of Light organisation and bring people to the Casa on her behalf, which I am honoured to do and Entity gave his permission for me to assist her in her great work.

Then to top off this amazing journey I was given special permission and was blessed by Entity on the day I was leaving, Good Friday to be able to take one of his sacred crystal beds home to Sydney.

I have now moved my healing clinic to brand new premises that open today on, Level 2, 118 Willoughby Rd, Crows Nest. For those who would like a session on the sacred crystal bed please contact me on mobile 0418 917 420 or email,

I find it very humbling when I think of all the wonderful people that have helped me to this point and I thank them all from my the bottom of my heart.

With love and respect, Ann Joel, Darlinghurst Sydney. Australia.

"Love is the medicine." Rumi's words summarize my experience at the Casa. The witness of spiritual and physical healings has left me forever changed.

Walking through the door into my precious healing studio behind my Victorian house, I am unfailingly touched by the Energy that is present since I was directed to add "the icing on the cake" (a literal dream), the crystal bed.

I was told by the Entities that they would be with me in my healing practice. Indeed, as I have worked, some people have felt more than my two hands on their bodies. One woman (who had not been to the Casa) was visited by the Entity, Dr. Augusto, during one of her sessions. As she described him, I searched for his picture on my bookshelf. Her response to seeing it was "Oh yes, that's him." These reports and visitations strengthen my faith and commitment to provide a sacred space for theunfolding of the healing we each gave birth for. During my last visit to the Casa, I was given a dark red scar on my belly after invisible surgery…I stay on the path, and miracles abound!

In addition to the presence of the crystal bed in my healing sessions, I was given permission by the Entity to continue to include the work that I love and have been schooled in: hands-on healing, subtle and medicinal use of essential oils, counseling, intuitive guidance, and, of course, prayer.

While eating soup at the Casa during my last visit, I kept finding myself seated next to people who have a "casa current group" in their towns all over the globe. In addition, I had a luminous dream in which I was being guided to pray aloud in such a group. I asked the Entity, and was told that they would be with us as we sit together in current in Santa Cruz. By no coincidence, after asking, I met a lovely couple who offered the perfect sacred space for our sessions. We have been meeting now for 4 months. I personally have felt my body being worked on and the relief of symptoms during the sessions. Even better, many of us report feeling the healing Presence that we do at the Casa. If you have been to the Casa, you are welcome!

I am so grateful to the Entities, to the Casa, and to the Love that led me to say "yes" to "do whatever I can so that not even one day goes by without a rendering of aid to one of Nature's living creatures" (Emmanuel-Francisco Candido "Chico" Xavier). I am open to receiving anyone who feels drawn to my studio. The fee is minimal, and half of it returns to the Casa with our gratitude.

  Jan Labate, Soquel, California  
  "Take 3 crystal baths and then come back to see me". Those were the first instructions I received from the Entity on my first vist to the Casa in November of 2003. And what a magnificent experience I found under the crystals - from having the opportunity to visit/see my departed family members to the deep sense of peace and gratitude I felt for a long time after. I am a rolfer by trade and felt the crystal bath could be of tremendous benefit to both my clients and myself.

When I moved to my current location I named my business Crystal Palms Integration. Initially it had more to do with the name of the street, Crystal Heights, and the l5 palm trees that encircle the property. Now the meaning is even more delightful to me - crystal and palms (hands) are the integrative tools in use here.

In discussing with Ricardo the possibility of my purchasing the bed he informed me that I must have permission from the Entity. As if on cue João (the man) walked through the Casa door and over to us. Ricardo asked him for permission, João "incorporated" and said "Yes, it would be very good for her work".

The beds are open to clients, friends, family and acquaintances by appointment. Fifty percent of all proceeds go to the Soup Kitchen in Abadiania and other projects undertaken by the Casa. While enjoying the healing benefits of the crystals and Entities' work we gain further satisfaction in knowing we are being of service to the Casa. It feels like recycling at it's finest.

Blessings to all, Jan

I just wanted to let you know we are enjoying offering crystal bed treatments here in Amherst, MA. Many beautiful people come to partake of the energy and find a deep connection to the Casa healers on the other side who work through our portal. I just wanted to share my gratitude and appreciation of this work with others.
Peace, Thom

  During a life changing trip to Abadiania in July 2005 I was granted permission by entities to obtain a crystal bed for use in my clinic at home. In October of 2006 my Mother Glenda returned to Abadiania and collected my crystal bed after receiving permission to also oversea treatments. I incorporate many modalities in my Clinic. I am a qualified Natural/Complementary Therapist, Relaxation Massage Therapist and utilise my Healing abilities to treat mind, body and soul. I am blessed to be able to add crystal bed sessions to my practice. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to be able to share this fantastic gift of crystal bed sessions with others. Thank you to Joao and the Entities.

Feel free to call or email me for further information or bookings

  We have set up the bed in a small studio and have begun to give Crystal bath treatments now. There are about 20 people that have been to Abadiania from this small island of 7,000 people.  
Adriana Viglione and Nathan Fepulea'i, Australia
Hi I brought a crystal bed home in April of this year the Entity had told me 2 years ago that I should work with one. It took that long because I did not have the money early to purchase one. I have had around 20 clients, all have been amazed by the healing power of the bed. You have my story in Friends of the Casa under Adriana's story. I am still free of cancer will be having some reconstructive surgery on the 26th of this month. I spoke to my Oncologist yesterday and he said since I saw you last your skin has improved dramatically, go on doing whatever you're doing. I try and use the bed weekly, sometimes I get caught up in family etc and then I use it every 2 weeks for myself.

Some of you might have read my story. My name is Adriana and I am a cancer survivor thanks to both mordern medicine and John of God. If I hadn't gone to Abadiania I wouldn't be here today. I not only received healing for my illness but also emotional, spiritual. I also received the gift of being able to work with healing. In April of this year I brought home a Crystal Bed. It was suggested to me by the Entity a few years ago that I should have one. I have 20 clients at the moment ranging from 4 years old to 85 years old. The comments I get vary ... the 4 year old asks to please go on the Crystal bed; The partner of the 85 year old said to me on her birthday "I dont know what you did to her, but I'm finding it hard to keep up with her". Some feel less stressed, or have less pain. I have found that using it myself has contributed to healing very quickly.

I have just had surgery to remove scar tissue do to radiation burns. The doctors said I would be in Hospital for 3 to 4 days and it would be a painful procedure. I was in hospital only 1 day and only took some paracetamol for the journey home. I never cease to be amazed by the power of João and the Entities. They are always with me.

If anyone would like to contact me I leave on the Central Coast of N.S.W. Australia (contact details above) or you may read more of my healing journey on Also on the Friends of the Casa website under Adriana's Story

My husband and I first visited the Casa in January 2003 and found it quite an amazing experience. We went there because I had developed rheumatoid arthritis and hoped to get help for my condition. We were overwhelmed with the feeling of love and peace in that place and both felt a healing of our whole being. I got great relief from my symptoms but this paled into insignificance compared to the spiritual benefits I received and continue to receive.

We were particularly impressed with the use of crystals for healing which was a new concept for us. The Crystal bed was a really beautiful experience for both of us - we felt its healing at every level and enquired from Martin as to whether we could buy one to bring back to Ireland. He explained that we would have to get permission from João-in-Entity. This was at the end of our visit so it was not possible for us to finalise everything so we had to send back photos of ourselves and of the room we were going to put the bed in. We sent these out with my sister and my daughter and the permission was given so they brought the bed back to Ireland with them.
We didn't have any preconceived notion of how we would use the bed but just felt that it could benefit so many people. Up to now we have just been using it for friends and family but would like to offer it to anyone who feels they would benefit from it or guests staying at our B&B.

A friend of ours, who is a healer, recently had some sessions on it and felt that it was a really powerful energy and that the great thing about it was that it was direct from source without any need for an intermediary and therefore no possible negative influences

My journey to the Casa De Dom In'acio was in June of 2006 for two weeks. I went to Brazil with an open heart to receive what ever healing body, mind and spirit, that God and the entities saw fit for me. I had MINOR health issues and I wanted direction in my life. Surgery, meditation, herbs and crystal baths were prescribed for me. By the beginning of the second week I was "feeling" the Peace and Love all my friends at home had talked about. Three days before we were scheduled to leave I was told by entities that I should bring a crystal bed home with me. I do not normally make decisions like this quickly but I knew I had to go for it. Permission was granted by Joao in entity and the process began. I went in front of entity for my final blessing and was told "go to work". I hadn't planned on making any sizable purchases while in Brazil so it was off to the city to the bank of Brazil, twice. The long process of retrieving money was finally successful 19 hours before our scheduled departure from Abadiania. This would not have happened with out Anderson, the best taxi driver / interpreter ever.

I have been in the medical field for 30 years. My goal is to help people become more aware of alternative methods of healing. I have been blessed with the opportunity to contribute to the link between spirituality and health. Helping people bring themselves to a balanced body mind and spirit with crystal bath treatments. I am finding working with crystals and color therapy and the importance of chakra harmony VERY interesting.

Thank you God, Joao, the entities, David and Diane Pauly, Gary Walker and Anderson. I know the entities are still guiding me.

When I visited Abadiânia and the Casa and João de Deus in October of 2004, I had a few sessions on the crystal bed. It was so wonderful that I asked in the second week if I could buy one. I was told to ask the Entity in session, who gave me permission. I was very happy and grateful about this und had to take a few trips to Anapolis to get the money from my credit card. It all worked out and then I was off to Salvador to Nishavda Rollhausen to her center Oasis de Luce for a few more relaxing holidays. Nishavda also had a crystal bed and we exchanged some information.

I had the crystal bed wrapped and sealed in a special plastic wrapping at the airport in Brasilia, its weight was 18 kilogram and it arrived safely with me on my return to Germany. Ever since I have taken many sessions myself, sometimes I lie on it every day , or at least every second day, sometimes 20 Min, or 30 or 40 minutes. It relaxes me very much, I feel tingling/pulsating in my hands and feet, actually in my whole body, and sometimes great heat, in the back of my head, the spine and in my whole body. I also feel that the healing power in my hands has increased even more. Healing happens on all levels through the crystalbed, spiritual, psychological and physical. For 22 years I have been a Reiki Master teaching REIKI extensively in Germany and many countries in Europe. I also wrote the book "Reiki Healing" and a few other spiritual books. Some of my Reiki students and friends have been using the bed and have also wonderful different experiences. One time a man saw a dark bearded Man (Dr. Augusto) while on the bed.

At the beginning of March 2005 João was here in Germany. I sat in his current room for 4 days in all the sessions, which was quite an experience. About 9000 people came during that time. One time in line to see the Entity, I took a picture of my crystal bed and my wooden triangle from Abadiânia and asked for a blessing. Martin said that it was Jose Valdevino who blessed it. When I got home after these days, right away I went on the crystal bed and it helped me to integrate all the energy from the current room. At first I was rather tired und also some emotions/sadness about my mothers death in 2001 etc. came up. I always pray and ask for the Entity's help for myself or others when on the bed and I do have the feeling that the Entities work on me, or on the ones on the bed, and also thru me when I treat with Reiki. So far not many people have used the bed, they are not quite ready for it yet. It is a very strong tool for transformation and healing and it is important to have positive thoughts while in session on the crystal bed, as crystals amplify everything

So I am very grateful that I have the crystal bed and all the blessings that come with it and I am planning to make another trip this summer to Abadiânia.
With much love and Light, God bless you all,
Brigitte Müller, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

  In January 2004 I came to see João to feel the energies that he imparts, and also for help with asthma. It was such a beautiful and powerful experience, to feel the love and compassion with which he offers his gifts, and to witness his humility. During my first visit to the Casa, I received that I was to ask for permission to bring a crystal bed home. In my personal interview with João, he gave me permission to offer the bed for use by my clients, and also told me that my work in conjunction with that of the crystal light bath was important to the people who come to receive the baths. It is a humbling and precious honor to be entrusted with this work. I have been a chiropractor for 16 years, and have been doing healing work for 13 years. I offer the crystal baths in 1 hour sessions, which includes a prayer before and after the session, and 40 minutes under the lights. I usually sit “in current” during the healing sessions. This is a gift both to the client and for me. João told me that the crystal bed imparts the energies of some of the entities which he channels. What better gift could I offer the world?

I have had many people visit my office to use the crystal lights. Some clients feel something very deep immediately; for others it takes some time. The ones who definitely feel a change, usually do a series of treatments. Some clients feel a lot of movement internally, and others more in their aura, energetically. Several women in particular have vivid visions while on the table.

One of my patients stated that she felt a Blueprint of Divine Perfection being illuminated within her body. I realized that that was one of my perceptions as well, and feel the profound depth at which the crystal apparatus works. I am so grateful. Here is what some of my other clients say:

“My body relaxes, my mind gets still, and then I can heal.”
“The crystals illuminate my mind.”
“It points the way to God.”
“It fills me with oneness.”
“The crystals open my heart.”
“It fills me with light.”
“The crystals prime me for seeing the ripples in my life.”
“It helps me to be receptive to the unseen.”
“The crystal light helps me to re-recognize my perfection.”
“The light leads me back to God.”

I first visited The Casa in June of 2005. I was led to the Casa and Joao through an strong intuitive knowing after hearing about him from two different people. I had great healing there and was given permission to bring a crystal bed home. As a result, my whole life is changing! I am making the bed available for others and use it myself. It is an incredible healing tool!! For those in Southeast Florida this bed will soon have a home as I am renovating a historic house in Delray Beach for yoga, art and crystal bed. I welcome any inquiries. In deepest gratitude to John of God and the Casa de Dom Inacio!!

I used to work for people with relaxation and body awareness sessions. After a powerful healing for myself at tha Casa last year I asked permission for having a crystal bath and so being able to have a complementary tool fot the healing process of people. I use it with great benefice since one year and I am happy now to share it with other people who are in the area as well .

  Ruthie Rosenfeld, USA  

I went to the Casa July 2005. From the very first moments being in Brazil I was very much aware of something new, and different than any place I had experienced before. I was surrounded with love and caring, and a deep connection to the Divine. It is beyond words. During my second session on the crystal bed I received a message to look into acquiring a crystal bed. In December 2005, with the help from my friends, I got my crystal bed. My life has evolved from wonderful to a more rich and focused place. The crystal bed has helped my spiritual, mental, and physical well being. The experience is soothing, relaxing, subtle, yet very powerful. I am available to support anyone who would be interested in having a crystal bed treatment. Please get in touch and thank you.

We visit The Casa on April 2007; we were honored to have been granted permission by the entities to bring a Crystal Bed from The Casa to our holistic school in Puerto Rico, called Essential Therapies Institute (Instituto de Terapias Esenciales). Puerto Rico is located at the Caribbean, and it is a United State territory. We speak Spanish as our main language, but we also speak English. Anyone visiting Puerto Rico is more than welcome to come to our Institute and enjoy the benefit of The Crystal Bed from The Casa. You are also invited to visit us at our web:

  April 2004 I was guided to John of God and the Casa de Dom Ignacio in Abadiania. The two weeks I spent there were wonderful and most transformative as I received profound healing at the Casa, at the sacred waterfall and on the Crystal Beds. I returned to Abadiania April 2005 and felt very honored when the Entities gave me the permission to take a Crystal Bed back to Montreal.

The day before my departure I went in front of the Entities of the Casa and they blessed the Crystal Bed and told me they would work through it on my family, friends and clients. Upon return to Montreal I was amazed how the energy in my healing center changed after I set up the Crystal Bed in one of the rooms. To me that is a tangible confirmation how strongly the Entities are working through the crystals. I am practicing energy psychology and use energetic techniques to help clients find relief from allergies and chronic ailments and am very grateful that I can support that work now with crystal bed healing. The sessions have been truly powerful. Physically present in the center but also long distance. Everybody's experience is different, however most people experience extreme relaxation, "as if something has been lifted off". Some people feel hands working on them and others as if they are elevating from the table.

I am very grateful to John of God, the Entities and all the volunteers at the Casa de Dom Ignacio for all the wonderful work they are doing.

Where does one begin her story? Ever since my first trip to Brazil 3 years ago, I have never again seen life exactly the same way. I have been back to Brazil six times since then and will continue to go as long as I shall live. This last time I was there in August 2006 and I was blessed by the entities to become a medium of the casa and to bring groups to Brazil. I was also told to bring back a Crystal Bed for the ever-growing Russian community that flocks to see John of God. From the depth of my soul I am forever grateful to God for giving me this opportunity to experience the miracles and spiritual awakenings that are happening all the time and are all around us.

The Services I offer in my office are as follows:
- Crystal Bed Sessions
- Meditation Lessons
- Brazilian Visa
- Picture to Joao for herbs

Love Always, Lena

Although I have worked in the complimentary health field for almost 30 years, crystals have never been my “thing”.

During my first visit to the Casa, when I asked if I could have surgery (my curiosity), I was told that I did not need one and instead to sit in his current for spiritual healing, take crystal beds and go to the waterfall.

Later that trip, I was told on 2 occasions that the Entities would support me to bring people to the Casa.

Six weeks later, I was back in Abadiania with a group. On a subsequent visit, 69 of the 73 sets of photographs that I presented received 'X's and the Entity, Dr Augusto de Almeida, instructed me to take a crystal bed back to NZ with me.

When I asked how to use it, I was told not to worry as “it comes with Entities attached”. In a state of confusion, before leaving, I asked the Entity for any final instruction regarding the use of the crystal bed . His reply was a single word “AMOR” – love

Subsequently the crystal has taught me much. In the early days, if I did not put on the right music, the sound system simply would not operate. I am now better attuned to what is appropriate.

I use it primarily with clients in my natural health consultancy work and also to prepare people before taking them to the Casa de Dom Inacio in Brazil.

“Different strokes for different folks” is the order of the day. Occasionally someone will feel absolutely nothing. Others feel all manner of sensations during and after sessions – pressure, weight, lightness, heaviness, hot, cold, wind, all manner of body sensations, tickling, tingling etc and often very deep relaxation. Several people have described a specific “being” with a black short-cropped beard, present in the room with them. When they are shown a photograph of Dr Augusto, they confirm that this is who they have experienced.

Others have accused me of sneaking into the room and endeavouring to remove the white towel with which they are covered. I smile, they smile, and we look forward to their next opportunity to use the bed
