about the Entities

Highly evolved spiritual beings who were once remarkable people in their own physical lives, doctors, surgeons, healers, psychologist and theologians who are of such high soul elevation that need no longer reincarnate to our physical plane. They do however continue to elevate in the spirit plane by the extent of their benevolence and charitable work .

These spirit doctors are actually were once human beings and lived on earth and now, by choice they remain connected to the earthly plane dedicating their out of body existence to heal and help us.

As a Medium, John of God is one the most powerful trance medium of our time,  with extraordinary capabilities. His mediumship enables him to incorporate more than thirty Entities who use his body as a vessel and have changed the reality of thousands of lost cases. During an operation there is a trance-like serenity in both his eyes and his face. His fingers work with skilled precision, even when his head is turned or his attention is elsewhere. Unincorporated he admits he knows nothing of medicine and cannot stand the sight of blood.  Every month, people around the world make this journey of spiritual healing to Abadiânia in Brazil, to be entrusted to the luminous spirits, so powerfully present in the house of Don Ignacio de Loyola.

When John of God channels the Entities (only one entitie at a time) they completely incorporate, taking over his body. Every person that comes and pass before him is scanned by the spirit entities who perform the necessary healing. The love and divine energy that flows through John of God touches everyone who comes to visit him and makes this spiritual center a sacred place.

Some of the acknowledged Entities are Don Ignacio de Loyola, Dr. Jose Valdivino, Dr. Oswaldo Cruz,  Dr. Augusto de Almeida, Dr. Bezerra de Menezes, King Salomon, St. Francisco-Xavier,  St, one Entity does not give his name and says to call him LOVE.

There are about 30 Entities who work through Medium João, and his mannerisms and behavior changes depending on what Entity is incorporating as they keep their own personality, he will wear or not his glasses, and the eye colour also changes. Some Entities have revealed their identity. These are the names of some of them incorporating Medium João , but there are thousands of others present at the Casa. The energy of love is so strong in their presence that often people receiving healing energy will be moved to tears.
