About the Healings
incorporates more than 30 spirit entities. Many of the entities were
medical doctors in former times, while others were skilled in spiritual
and psychological matters. Although João incorporates only one
entity at a time, unincorporated entities may assist with all treatments.
You may receive treatment while sitting in the current room, or at any
other time and place that is under the influence of the entities, including
while enroute to Abadiânia, in ones hotel room (even prior
to visiting the Casa!) and in the assembly hall.
spirit treatment you receive, the herbs and the blessed water contribute
to your healing and continue working over a period of time. The healing
process tends to continue to unfold over the 3-4 months (or more) following
your visit. Be patient and faithful to your practices of taking the
herbs and observing the simple dietary and health rules.

before seeing your M.D. or having an x-ray etc.
Sitting in Current
emphasis is placed on the importance of sitting in current. Because
the entities work on you in the current rooms, it is every bit as important
as going before João in-entity. By sitting in the current room,
you both receive and contribute to the flow of spiritual energy
current rooms are power-places for spiritual practice, raising vibrations
and healing. The term "current" (Portuguese corrente) refers
to the vital force, or spiritual energy that flows through the room
and is sustained by mediums and meditators. You also contribute to the
current. During any morning or afternoon session, you may sit in silent
prayer or meditation in one of the three rooms. The first current room
is entered from the assembly hall. From this room, one enters the second
current room, where João in-entity sits while in consultation.
This room, in turn, leads to the third current room, which is used for
invisible operations and body purification. All current rooms require
permission from the Entities to enter.
get the full benefit of the current rooms, and to not disturb those
already there, enter before the sessions begin at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Once you enter the current room, plan to stay for the entire session,
after all have passed through enroute to the Entity. (The time will
vary depending on the size of the crowds.) Keep your legs uncrossed
and your hands and arms out of contact with each other, to allow the
free flow of energy. Keep your eyes closed and remain silent; the Entities
cannot work on you if your eyes are open. If the current is making you
too woozy or otherwise uncomfortable, raise your hand and someone will
bring you a glass of blessed water to drink. There is also a recovery
room for people who really need to lie down for a while. Enter from
the assembly room via the second door to the right of the stage or enter
through the first current room. A Casa guide will assist you.
staff member offers spiritual messages in Portuguese throughout the
session. At some point João in-entity may pass through the first
current room and designate a section to join him in the second room.
If you are seated in that section, you may elect to move or remain where
the end of the session, people who will be leaving shortly and havent
yet passed by the Entity are invited to come say good-bye and receive
his blessing. Let your guide know if it is your last session. After
current everybody should drink the blessed water provided. The water
is sitting in the current room throughout the session absorbing the
energy of the session and to complete the session, it is important not
to leave the room without drinking the energised water.
