John of God

Week 14 in John of God Land

by Trinity S. Thomas on October 28, 2013

I was ill and had to postpone my trip a week. I was having the Breakup Blues from exiting a team I had worked with for more than a year. It was time for me to be about committing to my own unique work with Spirit. Overdue, really. I thought I was much better until I woke up throwing up into my pillow in the middle of the 8 hour plane ride from Atlanta to Brasilia.

I had an aisle seat and the stewardesses were in a bumper car mood. The food was inedible. The audio for the movies didn’t work. My seat mates were surly. The cab driver I expected was not there after Customs. Oh my.

I took a deep breath just outside of Customs, 22+ hours into my journey, ill and hungry. “OK,” I said inside myself. “I am here now, headed for the Land of Miracles. I need a cab and a good attitude.”

Immediately I saw a cab driver I recognized, smiled at him, and he
held up a sign that said ‘Trinity.’ And off we went.

Not surprisingly, I fell asleep on the way. I woke up to a Beatles song on the Brasilian radio. “You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead….We’re on our way home…” and as I opened my eyes I recognized the upcoming turn into the Land of Miracles, the road to The Casa de Dom Ignacio, where the medium Joao de Deus, John of God, has created a legacy of miraculous healings for many decades. They call this part of Abadiania ‘The Bubble.’ Because the ‘energia’ forms a field of high vibrations to support the miracles. It was so sweet to feel that resonance again. I felt myself exhale deeply, and my body

‘The Bubble’ is about 6 blocks long, and I was staying right in the
center, so we were almost there. The cab turned down the dusty road, scattering dogs and roosters and dodging the ever-present construction workers. The heat was staggering.

My friends were there to greet me with the street dogs they are devoted to. The adorable newest one has the perfect name; they named her Spirit. The dogs of Abadiania are their own story. They radiate such a rare and palpable unconditional love. They are clearly emissaries of a very great Being, sent to participate in the healing miracles.

Abadiania is not an easy place to be an animal…More on that later.

Walking through the courtyard, I felt the welcome from so many beings, many of them not physical. My little room greeted me, the waterfall mural over the bed promising cascades of many sorts to come, as if I had never left. My cough of several weeks was nearly gone already. The ‘energia’ was working its magic on me already.

I joined my friends on the hammock porch for a sweet chat about so many things, deep and trivial, watching Spirit dance in the grass. In puppy form, and in non-physical form. In our laughter and in the silences in between us.

Week 14 had begun.


Guide to John of God

Miracle Surgery by John of God


After 10 years of being a pilgrim, and participating as a healing medium in the work of John of God, I am honored to be an Official Guide to John of God.

Surprise is one of the greatest constants in the John of God experience. Just when you think you know what is coming next – SURPRISE!

I have spent more than 3 years ‘holding current’ in John of God meditation groups in 2 different states. I’ve spent 13 weeks over the last 20  months in Abadiania at the Casa de Dom Ignacio with Joao de Deus, also known as John of God. The experiences I have been graced with have changed my life, saved my life, enhanced my life. My experiences of the tangible reality of the spirit world have made sense of my life.

I brought a crystal bed home with me in October of 2011; I can’t imagine life without it. Chico Xavier’s psychographed books have opened a new window to the infinite for me, allowing me to understand in such a deep way the organization of spirit helpers and how the energies of spirit support, infuse, and refine matter. Especially humans and their lives. Mediumship is as natural to me as breathing; I am realizing I may be a Spiritist!

Just recently I spent 3 weeks in Abadiania during the time of Carnival in Brazil, so the energies were a bit rowdy and chaotic. Observing how the Casa workers dealt with these challenges touched me deeply. Their deep commitment to service and their capacity to hold light and dispel darkness in the face of remarkable challenges and huge crowds was epic.

I realized the 10 years of my involvement with this miraculous way of being has resulted in my becoming a Guide to John of God! I am available to guide people wanting to experience firsthand the energy, the system, the town of miracles, for themselves. I am a medium. I have worked for 30 years in the areas of Reiki, Hypnotherapy, Crystal ‘healing’, spiritual counseling, and mediumship. Journey with me to another view of spiritual healing and discover a new range of what is possible! (Enable Javascript to see the email address).

Returning to John of God Land

by Trinity S. Thomas on January 29, 2013


I’m going back. And I’m surprised. For the fourth time in two years, I’m headed to the Casa de Dom Ignacio de Loyola in Abadiania, Brazil, to the House of Miracles.

It’s different this time. I was invited by friends to share their home there. We feel called, as a group, because we can feel something percolating in the spirit world. We will be alert for signs and clues, listen deeply, meditate much.

I am so grateful for the accelerated healing available at the Casa, for the easy communication with spirits, for the community of pilgrims. For the opportunity to learn more about how the spiritual dimensions intersect with our reality to clear and balance all sorts of confusions and deliver many varieties of grace. The quantum-physics-in-action of it all!

I know my way around the village now. There’s not so much to figure out. I feel very still, internal, and open about it all. No nervous tension or high hopes or trepidation of any sort. Not even very many healing requests to take with me.

Very oddly different than my other journeys. I’m curious. And ready. I’m grateful to know of and have access to this amazing tradition. And my amazing friends. In this New Earth. I travel with Arms Wide Open…
