He who Asks a Question is a Fool for a Minute. He who Does Not Remains a Fool Forever. –Buddha
When you ask the Optimal Question, you get the Optimal Answer. Beautiful Truth. No Right and Wrong but some questions are a setup. Biased. Lead you further astray. My observation is that many people ask questions not aligned to their Highest Purpose. Example: What can I do to control this situation? Or What can I do to make that person do what I want them to do. Something to consider as you navigate the Game of Life. I recommend that you Question your Questions. I Do. Empowering Questions are all the Rage in my World. I have it down to a Science …
October 2014, I spent one week in a little town, Abadiània, Brasil. Worldwide attention has landed on the town due to the Mediumistic Healer John of God (JOG) for over a decade. Books and Movies exist to document the magic that had been experienced at the Casa – a gathering place designed and developed for the purposes of Assembly Line Healing (my words). Healthcare delivered, large and small. Including Miracles. Consider Miracles and Reality are the same things viewed from two different Mindsets or Perspectives.
My visit occurred via a sideways turn of events. A Tour with an American Psychologist for the prior week caught my eye not long before the Departure Date. I signed up after a telephone conversation and reviewing the details briefly online. Impulsive by most people’s standards. Clarity by my Own. You just know when you know. Weeks later, I received an email suggesting a visit to John of God along with most of the other participants of the original tour. I did not look up John of God. I said Yes. When in Rome, do as the Romans – so to speak. Impulsive or Clarity in decision making depending on your mindset. I have Optimized my Senses to just know when I know… A Teacher, Matt Kahn, always said, if you are not sure, it means No. Excited and Enthusiastic… is a Yes. Works for me. To Easy to be True? Be Aware if this matches your Inner Voice. I Upgrade to: It is Easy. And It is True.
It quickly became apparent, once arrived in the quaint town, that there was a lot of information that others felt I should have acquainted myself with ahead of time. Was not inspired to study up on the upcoming experience. I
believe that I will know what I need to know when I need to know it. One way of defining Abundance. Here was another example of Two Different Mindsets living side by side. I was the only of the group not actively working in Healthcare. The tour had me frequently feeling slightly fraudulent. I reminded myself how inspired I am to learn and/or develop shortcuts to Holistic Health. I had just as much right to be there as anyone. I recall the prudence the leader took with my case when we initially spoke on the phone. The tour involved alternatives in Psychiatric care. She had led 60 prior groups but this was the first time the Tour was solely for Healthcare Providers. I was open about my dramatic experiences within the world of Psychiatry as a Patient with a Psychotic Episode, twice admitted involuntarily. Just because someone lacks a diagnosis means very little to me. My experience matches. The diagnosis does allow for greater awareness around your behavior. Just one of the reasons I feel my label, some might call diagnosis, of Bipolar Disorder has been a blessing, well–disguised at first. The fact that I was also trained as a Family Doctor led her to take her chances with me. She did not state it like that but it was my interpretation. She specifically wondered if I would be at greater risk of a bad experience during one of the medium sessions. I volleyed back, perhaps I will be more resilient than a non-labeled person. One never, never knows if one never, never goes. That old Australian tourism jingle. In the end, one of the jewels for me from the tour was discovering that I, myself, am a Medium of sorts. Good to know … Solidly landed into my awareness weeks following the trip.
Was so grateful to the Original Tour Leader, now also a Friend and Colleague, who put me in touch with a local Guide to facilitate my experiences at The Casa, John of God’s Healthcare Facility. Beautiful grounds, Church-like structures complete with pews made up The Casa. Natural Vistas complemented the scene. A Sacred Waterfall was strategically situated less than a mile walk away. Ritual washing in the waters of the Sacred Waterfall was first on the Itinerary. Some infrastructure existed to aid in keeping the waterfall Unisex, reversing from Male to Female as the participants presented. Arriving a couple of days early allowed for no waiting at the Waterfall. Our prior tour scheduled to allow extra days to enjoy the leisurely pace of the quiet town. John of God started diagnosis and treatments on a specific day of week so many people arrive just the day prior.
Loosely connected to the group from the prior week, I was informed of tidbit after specific tidbit of what I was supposed to do/wear/be etc. A couple in the group had visited with JOG before. By the end of our week there, two were Official Guides. One being freshly Ordained for lack of a better word. It was she who was shocked and horrified that I was unaware that we were encouraged to wear white clothes while present at the Casa on treatment days. Surprised myself that I had packed my white jeans and a white shirt, very outside of my routine. The weather was scorching – unseasonal- begging for the most minimal of clothing. I let the dismay roll off of me. I planned to keep a sideways eye on the shops and see if anything tickled my fancy. Not too concerned. I was certain that I would not wear clothing that was not authentic for me. Turned out, Angèle found and purchased two appropriate white outfits. The one vendor accepted my bank card, successful. The other was cash only. Turns out most of the town held the belief that Cash is King.
Abadiània is an Intentional Community – the parts I experienced. Many High Vibrational Business Owners Consciously chose to setup in the town, aligned to the work of JOG and the Visitors he attracted. It made perfect sense that Cash would keep Money out of the Financial System. Keeps costs down? Hide Money out of Sight of the Tax Man? Who knows what the motivation was. I am not the most worldly traveler but recent years had found me in South America a couple of times. I noted how accessible money was. Seemed hardly worth the hassle of obtaining foreign currency in Canada. Much easier when in the country. For Brasil, I took this lackadaisical approach. The last day in Goiània, Brasil saw an opportunity to jump in a cab with a couple of the other ladies heading to the Mall for a Cash Machine. The week was tightly scheduled. Missed my Solitary time Fiercely. Declined the boring trip to the cash machine. Had about 80 Reais, not a lot of money, and my plastic cards. Ready for anything. So I thought.
It was shortly after arrival to the town of JOG that my first cash crunch presented itself. The Guide was expecting payment in cash … US Dollars. Whoops! Missed that Memo. With me being an afterthought, neither she nor I sorted out that important detail. Would have been easy enough to have had that ready. Oh well. Will Brasilian money be OK? Slight deflated, yes. Do you take Visa? No. Bank card? No. Paypal? No. Oh. Let me find a Bank Machine, no problem. Looking back, my Guide was not comforted by my Bank Machine proposal. I came to understand why. There were only 3 Machines in the entire town. One was situated in the lobby of the Poussada (like a hostel) where most of my prior week group was staying. I took many meals there. Turns out the machine was Out of Order. No problem. Surely it will be repaired soon. Quick to see the non-committal tone with the various locals. Weird vibe detected instantly. Hmmmm …
I assured my dear Guide that I will pay the fee gladly. Worst comes to worst, I will wire the money from Canada. After genial discussion, it was decided that the chosen option would be for the Guide to drive me to the nearest town, Alexandria, where there would be both Bank and Bank Machine. Before hitting the highway, we checked a second bank machine. It appeared functioning but would not give cash to my foreign card. The drive was 40 minutes, scorching hot, windows down, driving down a highway with a woman whose foot was even heavier than my own. Cannot recall the make of her car but it was not the Volvo XC 90 that I have become so accustomed to back home. Sprinkle in some road rage with regular frequency. Picture painted. Learned a new move: left hand, palm up out the driver’s window. Jerky upwards movements implying I am waiting while you ride the bumper of the car ahead expecting them to change into the right lane to allow your passage. I knew the move well but had never used the accompanying hand signal. I felt validated for past behavior somehow. Grateful to get to know the guide a little more. Beautiful Soul. Personally, I love these unique VIP experiences. Not sure how she felt. She was very courteous about it all.
Going to the bank in Brasil contrasted my Edmonton, Alberta, Canada experiences. Firstly, you put your phone and wallet (whatever you are carrying) in a special receptacle in the transparent bullet proof wall between the Foyer and Bank. You walk through a Metal Detector and quickly retrieve your items. I am not recalling if there were armed guards on site. It felt like it. Strained Relationship were the words that popped into my head. Between the Public and her Banking System.
Perspective being gained by the minute. Prior to entering the bank, I took out the daily maximum from the machine. This settled all debts with the Guide, along with a full tank of gas. That was her Top Priority. Do not blame her. As things played out in the week, I can see the importance of payment prior to service. I ended up being 110% satisfied – a minority in the group she attended alongside me. She and I were a perfect match. Of course! That is how my Life works. She very generously offered to satisfy my curiosity to see if a teller might be able to manage a larger cash withdrawal. I would need more money to get through the week. She is an industrious woman and used the wait time to look into some insurance issues she had – driving her car uninsured it appeared. I was able to witness some interesting differences Brasil to Canada. There was the pull a number system. Seats were provided while you wait. Nice. Loved the Natural order of allowing elderly and handicapped to jump the queue. Interesting … I was so Grateful for the Guide’s translation services but the Teller could not exceed the already maxed out cash availability. Was worth a try.
Guide bill paid but not a lot of cash outside of that in my wallet. Optimistic by Design, carried on. Daily checks on the closest bank machine. Did not take long to see that this was routine and not unexpected. There was no reliability in the maintenance of the Bank Machines. Another symptom of the Strained Relationship. Interesting how much Power the Bank has despite the desires of the portion of the town serving JOG. Cash is King but where does the Cash come from? As always, it takes Two to Tango. Not a harmonious dance in this case. Started taking an active interest in how I would manage with nearly no money. Funny memory. Must share. Cannot recall if this was day 2 or 3 but joined several from the prior week for supper. Healthcare workers. I disclosed my Financial Challenges. Did not even occur to me to ask for Assistance. Sideways assumed they had just enough cash for their own needs. Everyone was caught a little off guard by how cash friendly the place turned out to be. One fellow participant was quick to take on a stern face and start lecturing me. You have learned your lesson now, I imagine. Something along those lines. Complete with the slow, repeated finger pointing at my chest. My quick reply was that I will learn a lesson but likely not the one you are referring to. Sometimes I cannot help myself. No malice was intended but yikes, that good old Mindset again. She was uncomfortable with my easygoing stylin’s. She wanted me to be more Responsible. I reassured her that I was not overly concerned. I love the idea of finding a way through this. Solutions will present themselves. My history of Fierce Independence. I Opened my Mind for Creative Solutions. Perhaps that was the point of it all. I was not asking for help yet. It was not even in my mind. At the end of this meal, one of the others (Doctor from USA) silently slipped me 100 Reais. It made me smile…and warmed my heart. She had a Cheshire Cat grin on her face. I treasure that moment. I could see myself doing the very same. So cute. It was the vibration with which she gave the gift that I treasure most. It was knowing that I would be fine, but just in case it comes in handy, here you go. I accepted that loan wholeheartedly. I took scientific interest to notice, that it was only on the last day that I tapped into that bill. In the end, she missed a meeting with a lady we connected to in Goiània to purchase some Flower Essences. I paid her bill after visiting one of 6 Full Service Bank Machines lined up in a row at the Airport. Wait for it. Wait for it. Yes, nearly 100 Reais. Shipped them to her from Edmonton along with a US dollar check to ensure full payment of my little love loan once I arrived home. We are all connected.
So I spent some of my spare time scouring the streets and businesses for solutions to my cash problems. First to show up, the Travel Agency had a little side service going on. Get Cash from many Foreign Sources. Fee: 10%. I was willing to pay. Serve me please. Many varied attempts with different amounts and cards. No success. The American plastic worked like a charm for other Customers. Canada was not recognized by their Magic Box. Pity. Had I brought more American cash, that would have easily earned me the right to pay 10% to obtain the Brasilian currency. Have long known that American cash while traveling the Americas comes in pretty handy. Somehow chose not to take formerly followed advice on that one. All American dollars got spent in Goiània where plastic probably would have worked just as well. Who knew?
Side Entertainment for the week in Abadiània was thinking about Money, Money systems, Wealth. Enrichment to my Experience. Reverse pun?
I have significant wealth in Canada but when I am unable to access it, I am as Good as a Poor Man. No connection to all that I have in the Canadian Financial System. Access Denied. Rolled that feeling around in my mind. Straight to the thought that it is a Metaphor for Human Evolution, formerly known as Spirituality. Each of us has an Abundance of Riches in the form of our Truest Selves, our Highest Selves. If you have no Connection to it you are not Actualized. A Poor Man. Not connected to your Wealth. What do I mean by Actualized? The idea that the most Free, Powerful, Loving, Joyful, Truest version of yourself awaits most of our Experience. Including Myself in that statement. A more Expanded Version of Myself Continually Opens Up. It is there waiting to be tapped into. Each of us will have some idea for themselves. I consider Jesus Christ as an example of a fully actualized Human Being, to add some perspective to how big I Believe I, and everyone else, Can Be. I consider present day Normal better termed as Suboptimal.
I started writing this story January 27, 2015. Since these Experiences, I have Integrated a lot of Expansion in my Mindset. John of God’s Psychic Surgery, to my mind, played a part in that. The Entities, Spirits, are the Therapeutic Modality behind the benefits of JOG. JOG is a Medium, communicates with higher Energetic Vibrational Beings. He uses his Gift to assist People to Heal Themselves. Defies Medical Logic, yes I know. Logic is less relevant in the Higher Vibrational Energetics. Note the picture of an Historical Text I referred to looking for the Doctor words, Therapeutic Modality. I date myself as it is far from the most recent Edition of Harrison’s. A Bible of sorts. More of a keepsake to me now. Not unlike my copy of the Holy Bible. I allow them to maintain their places on my bookshelf, but I do not plan to refer to them in any serious way. I had forgotten the Medical Jargon. Needed to jog my memory. Ha ha. To my Experience, the Entities helped Me a lot. The Relationship began the Moment I set foot on the ground of the town of JOG. Those extra days ahead found me lying on my bed in my convent-like accommodations for hours at a time. In a Nutshell, I will describe my sense of the operations of JOG. I believe in the concept of Healing large numbers of people with Grace and Ease. It is by Empowering the Self-Healer within each and every one of us. Many in the Collective Consciousness hold strong to the idea that it is hard, inaccessible and should take a long time. Possibly you believe there needs to be another person to act as the Sacred Healer. You may want to Review this with your Own deeply held Beliefs. They can be tricky, these beliefs, hiding outside of your consciousness yet powerfully limiting your ability to enjoy full Health. That is how Powerful we are. A shame when we lack awareness of our own Power. Make it a game of Hide-and-Seek. If those Beliefs are there, no problem. Your Intention to remove them Energetically from your Being is the important first step required to do so. That Intention, strongly and authentically held starts a Vortex of Energy aiding you to that goal. Follow your Intuition and Excitement. It may not look anything like how you might expect. Listen to me Now. Believe me Later. I am not saying that everyone needs to go to John of God in Brasil. There are many paths that lead to full Health. My sense is that many people do not realize full health is within their reach. First step is Believing.
Must Emphasize that it is the Individual that Directs the Healing, not JOG. He is the Middle-Man. My sense is many people put him on a Pedestal and fail to Recognize their own Essential Part in the Healing Process. The very same common mistake that occurs in the Western Medical System. Lack of Awareness significantly Dilutes the Level of Healing received. Your Sovereign request or permission directs the interaction in both systems. You are the Boss. Spitting Into the Wind when a person sits passively waiting for Healing while the Healer sits waiting for the patient to be Empowered to align with the Self-Healing Powers that only they can authorize. The Healer can only ever be a helper. The word Healing itself is a Misnomer. Biased as is so much of Our Language. Most people do not realize their own Power. Assumptions are made just by using the word Healing. Healing implies Sickness and the need for a Cure. An entire Mindset is built in to so many words and concepts of the English Language. I have become fascinated with how various languages have different biases. Recently came across: The French don’t go crazy…they break a fuse (Péter un plomb). Found that quite interesting as I, on my own, had determined that for me, a Psychotic Episode was more like Blowing a Fuse than Illness in the way I was taught in Medical School. Funny how the French chose to word it in this more Realistic way. A fond place in my heart for my own kind, being a high strung purebred French girl.
My Observations while in Abadiània was that many people were quite concerned how they would word their request to JOG. When they finally came up with something, it tended to be quite small in scale to my sensibilities. For example: Heal my Arthritis. More a tiny Symptom in the larger scope of Health. Our Guide encouraged us to consider why we had come to JOG but not to fret. The entities start interacting with you upon arrival to the town. By the time you present for treatment, all is known. I took a more Carte Blanche approach. Tried to think with broad scope language. Specifically mentioned Speaking in Tongues not really fully comprehending what that might be. Part of me wanted to just know how to speak several foreign languages via direct download. So far that has not materialized. Ha ha. Wonder if it is more intentions transmitted effectively via my writing – perchance? A girl can dream. This girl loves to. More than anything, I want to be Understood.
A snippet from what I wrote: I want to achieve my full Human Potential. To align with my Highest Purpose. If I have misunderstood this Purpose, I ask for Clarity of my fullest Self. I am inspired by the stories of Jesus Christ and Anastasia of the Ringing Cedars Series. I wanted to be a Mediumistic Healer myself. To demystify Ascension and Enlightenment. It is Easy and Simple when you declare it so.
Looking back at my notes, I believed more in a middle man then. I now see myself in the Driver’s Seat. I saw JOG as serving a valuable service. Could not help my habit of wanting to Upgrade it. First, remove the Religious Template. I understand why it was there. Each person has a Threshold of Believability. For the Brasilian People, they perceive higher value when linked to Religious icons etc. Found it interesting that the locals were more likely to request the Physical Surgery option, as opposed to the Psychic Surgery. When there is a scar, it feels more real. See? Always your choice. That good old, too Simple to be True. My belief: It is Simple. And it is True. I Love, believe wholeheartedly, the good news that Nobody is Wrong. A shame that many people cannot accept their own Threshold of Believability and are determined to convince others to Believe as small as they do. When we Live and Let Live, the World Will Know Peace.
What is Wisdom Consciousness? James Blacker speaks to Pernilla Helmersson. She defines Consciousness as:
Everything Exists and Nothing is Judged.
Love. That. Definition. Try it on for Yourself. So Freeing. So Open. So Beautiful.
We are all Consciousness. We do not have to go looking for it. James Blacker adds in that Integral versus Absolute Consciousness is a Useful Perspective. The Absolute holds firm to one view, not allowing other views in. The Integral can hold its view and yet remain open to alternate views as well. Two people, for example a married couple, can argue about everything when in Absolute Consciousness. If the couple hold Integral Consciousness, they will be unable to argue. Hmmmm…. Integrative Consciousness has a lot to offer each and every one of us. In my Experience, it does not come Naturally when raised in the common Western Worldview. Trained out of us … by Design.
The more Judgment we have grown up with the less Confidence we will have. The difference between who We Are and who We Are Destined to Be (the Truest Self) is the Transformation we benefit from.
Judgment versus Assessment. Important to distinguish. Alan Watts said we are not On Probation in this Life.
One person removes choice, a Parent often with their Child. An Employer with his/her Employee. Etc.
Conceptual Freewill versus Conscious Freewill.
Unconscious to Conscious is like Self-Judgment to Self-Acceptance.
Spirituality: a word that is charged with Judgment. I have Upgraded my concept of Spirituality. Bentinho Massaro found the words to explain why I lost nearly all interest in the topic. Why I call myself a former Seeker. Spirituality was created by Humans to act as a bridge from where they are expressing their identity (maybe suppressing fullest version) to their Truest form of themselves, eventually fully actualizing. The closer we come to recognizing who we really are and expressing it wholly, there remains no need for the concept of Spirituality. Religion is when you make God, or some deity, the middle man. Failing to recognize your own essential role in these matters.

Conversation with a close friend: we were reviewing some money matters between us. She is a gifted artist. I enjoy working with her immensely. Designing the Disabled Angel costume for me to be photographed in was the open project at hand. Being paid sooner rather than later was requested. We have had this type of conversation before … which always had me agreeing to pay for upcoming services just ahead of the actual service. The first time I did this, I was not 100% sure how it would end. Decided I wanted to take my chances. She had proven reliable, 120%, time and time again. Authentic Communication on this awkward topic had been visited on several occasions so it was with much less difficulty this time ’round. I had declared from past experiences that long-winded stories that pussyfooted around the question were not appreciated by me. I matter-of-factly declared that this was the best this scenario had ever played out. She was honest with her first statement, I need to ask for your Help. Love the wording of that. I, myself, have the hardest time with that sentence also. I see myself in my friend. I love the Statement for its Honesty and Authenticity. Brave in its Vulnerability. I read between the lines and knew it was a dollar figure that was being requested. Some story was delivered in answer to my question, “tell me the details”. For me, details was a number. I had meant dollar amount/format. It could also be a Story – which was how she interpreted my question. I had no idea of how I would feel about it until I understood what help was being asked for. So when she clearly summed it up, would you mind paying $1000 towards the work we will be doing together? I will work it off. I smiled. Of course!
Again, we discussed this slightly awkward circumstance in our Friendship. I Complimented her at how much Cleaner her Simple Request felt Energetically. Still some weird vibe but we each have our thing.
Brought me to a large nugget of Truth, to my ear, I heard from my Mentor back in March 2014: If you consider Health, Finances and Love Relationships to each occupy the corner of a triangle, it is a rare person who has mastered all three at once. I had never thought of it that way before. So for my friend, she struggled with the Finances. I with Love Relationships. She and I had made note of this to each other numerous times. Here we were, yet again. New Chapter of the Old Familiar Book. We do not Love each other less for it, but more.
When you Hear yourself give Advice to another, it is actually for You. Oh ya, it was Matt Khan. That one Hit Me Hard at First but Integrates more and more with each passing month. Matt Kahn’s Header on his website:
Abundance is the Energy of Permission. The more you Permit Yourself the Right to Desire what you Want, Express Gratitude for what you Have, and Be Excited for Whatever Comes Your Way, the more Abundance you are Bound to Receive.
The Advice I gave to my Friend (Myself):
When you are offering your services, you want to state your price as calmly and with the same certainty/normality/neutrality as you would when you ask for food because you are hungry. When you ask (yourself) to go to sleep because you are tired. You are so obviously worthy of each and every of your needs being met … by design. Why would payment with money so you can live with ease and grace be any different? In the past her discomfort with requesting payment for her vocational work echoed with me also being uncomfortable with it. I would wonder if I am taking advantage of my talented friend. A few times, I was close to hiring someone else just to ease my dis-ease. She made it clear that would be far worse, let us work through this. Her discomfort taking money for her services was in the wider world too. I have heard her say, she wishes she could do what she loves for free. I wondered aloud, Really? Be Mindful what You Wish For. I believe it is true but some source of living with ease and grace would want to be in place first. My sense anyway.
I instantly Translated my Advice for my Friend into wording that suited my situation. I would Live in Greater Ease and Grace if I could Request and/or Desire Intimate Love from a Man of Interest just as Naturally as I Expect to be Fed when I am Hungry and Sleep when I am Tired. When and how did I put all the weirdness on this Simple Desire? Why do I Subconsciously expect that Men will not want to Spend Time in an Intimate Relationship? The Best I can Expect is Sexual Intimacy: take whatever Intimacy comes on the side with that. Awareness is a Good Start. Interesting. Don’t ya think? The Old Fashioned Money:Love Tradeoff. The Belief that you can Not have Both in Abundance. Tradeoff: Be Gone! And it Was. Just. Like. That. My Wish is My Command. My old saying translates to: My Command Makes it So. When combined with Deep Belief, a change in Energetic Vibration.
The Disabled Angel encourages you to pay Close Attention to the Advice you Give to Others … as it is actually for You. Catch my drift? For me this concept has felt like a huge Upgrade. I can be pretty bossy. I Listen attentively to my own Advice now. That was Easy. There was a time when this Simple Awareness felt like the hardest thing in the world. Elusive and not Conceptualized.
Important to remember: I Am all I Need … but Fulfilling Desires Enriches Life. Understanding is Optional … and the Biggest Roadblock in My Experience.
Let the Mystery Be. If you have created a level of Clarity within Yourself, you need only be Present to the Moment – The Moment is King – and follow your Excitement/Intuition. The next best step will be in sight. That is all you need to know. Moment to Moment. Follow the Breadcrumb Trail. Step into the next best step without knowing Step 2, 3, or 4. Repeat.
March 4, 2014 I add here: The Moment is King philosophy got me to a comfortable enough place. It has been Recently Upgraded thanks again to Bentinho Massaro. I have adopted his view that the Moment represents your past thinking so if you focus on the Moment, you will be in a Neverending Loop.
Upgrade: Imagination is King.
Our Imagination creates Desires. Our Experience Follows. Seeding New Desires along the Way. Never Stopping to check in on the recently-seeded Desires. Stops the Magic (Reality by my Perception). Enjoy the Amazing Desires Fulfilled beyond your Imagination. Continually Imagining. Stopping to Look Outside Yourself holds you in a less Optimal State. Not about looking into the Future but Creating the Future. Languish in Your Daydreams. Lots of Them.
Yes, I am Listening to My Given Advice with all Ears. Not even sure how many ears I have any more.
Road To Glory By Daniel Kim. Warning: It is kinda braggy …
I include the Wikipedia link for John of God, Joao de Deus in Portuguese, at the End of this Story as it does not represent the situation as accurately as My Own Account. All I see is the view of the writer’s Belief Systems shining through. Skepticism. Hard look at how JOG generates a fairly high cash flow. I love to see a Saavy Operation. To my Eye: Ethical, Offering High Value Services to complement the free service of JOG himself. The Casa took Credit and Bank cards. The only rule is you had to have a balance over a specific dollar amount. Forget. 20 Reais? It was a very Reasonable Policy. I am almost certain that the Casa has an extremely good Relationship with the Bank. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Strike you as watering down the Integrity of JOG? How well served by that attitude are you in your wider Life? Many stand firmly in Animosity toward the Banks and people comfortable with Money. My Sense is many feel Free in this Vibration. My perspective: They appear Enslaved. The Vibration of Animosity hurts them more than anyone else. Stops the Tap to Their Abundance flowing. I Write my Own Story.
Interesting how I had no Inspiration to read up on JOG. I have heaps of Experience where reading and researching has led me astray. Someone Else’s Experience through their variety of lenses (Belief Systems) may not be in my own highest good. Majority of written accounts appear through the Fear/Scarcity lens. Experience is the Best Teacher. I have Consciously Chosen to not allow the Past to dictate the Future. Notice the use of the word Dictate. My own Experience led to significantly different conclusions. Try it sometime. It Grows (on) You.
Checklist For Income. 4 reasons why money does not flow
the way you would wish. And 4 remedies. By Durga Holzhauser
Spiritual Wisdom & Money. Sums up my view as to why I have attracted money to me. I share my stories in an attempt to make it clear. Our Energetic Vibration is where it starts. That is why I could not be concerned about the lack of Money while traveling in Brasil. It is just a Symbol. When it is not present, my True Worth remains the same. I know that. I am not fooled by the lack of Paper and Metal in my Pocket. I stayed True to myself in the environment of people who were falling for an illusion – that they were Free from their estranged Financial System. I felt like the kid stating the fact that the Emperor was not wearing any Clothes. I hoped that I was careful to respect the many people with a different perspective related to money from myself. No matter what Bed that they made and Refused to Sleep in, it had nothing to do with me. I was Confidently Looking for a Solution … and I created one for Myself. My Bill for Lodging was in arrears – Cash Only. With the translational services of my Guide, it was me who casually wondered aloud if there might be a friend with a business that had a machine to process a Credit Card. Why yes! What do you know? Simple solution. I offered gladly to pay the service fee, 2%. Nice. My guess is that little Poussada (Hostel) now has a side business processing transactions in situations like mine. Human Beings, we are nothing if not Adaptable.
In a Nutshell: The more Unattached I Am to Money, the more it Attracts to me in Abundance.
I Expect it to Serve Me. Abundance is an Energetic Vibration (pure Physics). My Experience with friends and acquaintances hints that this is not easily transmitted. My hypothesis: Jesus Christ himself had an Attachment to Poverty. Great man but…we cannot forget that he was a Human Being. Wonder if we can Upgrade his views in relation to Money? Always a Choice people. I think John of God figured that one out. JOG appears very connected to Jesus Christ. He is a Catholic. His main building is designed and decorated like a Catholic Church. He Upgraded his view on Money. Good for him, I say! I mean that very Sincerely.
How can you serve Riches as a Poor Man? Abundance is Optimal. Wouldn’t You Say?
I Offer my Upgrades to this Ancient Text: Lost in Translation. One can only Translate from one’s perspective/Energetic Vibration. The Thousands of Years that has followed demonstrates how that has played out. That is why I literally write my own story. You can imagine how it might read if someone with the Fear/Scarcity Mindset were to write it. I Joke, but it is no Joke. My Upgrades:
Money is Freedom.
Money is an Amplifier. It Makes You More of What You Already Are.
I have no problem with someone earning a living in keeping with their worth. The choice to Let Go of the Attachment to Poverty is one my Ancestors happened to make and then pass down to me. My former husband was the same. Like attracts like. His grandfather knew when to get out of China so to speak. A Prosperous Merchant in an African country: Entrepreneurship blossomed in him. Like attracts like. I am Grateful … but otherwise no different from anyone. We all have potential to change our Energetic Vibration in this area. I don’t necessarily know for you but wonder if with this perspective in mind, you might be more likely to Ask the Optimal Questions of Yourself, thus Receive the Optimal Answers. True Solutions lie within the Individual. The Only One within Your Control. Let us not make it any harder on Ourselves than is necessary.
The Self-Healer within each of Us also has great Financial Advice. Alignment and Clarity: the Key to Health, Love and Financial Abundance. Clarifying Yourself: Essential to Health and Well-being. If you feel unwell, you are likely unclear … about who you really are.
A Couple more One-Liners I am fond of:
Resilience is the Key … To Everything: Health, Love, Abundance and Peace.
Recalibrating … Recalibrating. Super Fun to tease myself with this line whenever things feel a little off.

Finished in London, England. Enjoying the Vibrancy.
Stark contrast to when I lived here one summer way back when. It rained every single day.
Spring is an Optimal time to visit London I now know. Blue skies and Sunshine! Just like Home.
March 14, 2015 Addendum:
Forgot to mention the Charged Water. All the rage in Mediumistic Healing. The Spiritist Mediums I met in Brasil the week prior to John of God also used it. Value of intentionally charging water recognized in
multiple sources over the years. The Holy Water used in the Catholic Church is created with the same concept. Simply by focusing high vibrational intention (Love, Peace), palms facing the water, increases the Energetic Vibration of the Water. Invisible Forces, aka Magic (tongue in cheek) are displayed physically very well in the work of Masaru Emoto. 3 minute video depicts how the ice crystals look under a microscope after different intentions were charged to the Water. Useful to be aware of Quantum Physics Principles for Dummies. Water being a great vehicle for absorbing Energy. Some people call this Magic or possibly Faith. More Empowering to call it Physics. Positive health benefits from drinking the charged Water. While in Abadiània, everyone was encouraged to drink exclusively the Water Charged by the Entities. I complied. Even prior to this exposure, I regularly reminded myself to charge my water. It is Easy. I Believe it has a Positive Impact. Risk: None. You will quench your thirst at the very least while thinking with a Positive Focus. There is nothing better for your Holistic Wellness than Positive Focus. A suboptimally used Invisible Force in this World. Love gets a lot of airplay. Love is a word that is highly misunderstood. We would be better served by 8 or more words to more specifically convey all the sub-meanings trapped within the word Love. I plan to tackle that vocabulary problem one day. Not to be forgotten, Peace vibrates higher than Love. I Choose Peace. Less misunderstood. Where there is Peace, there is Love: the Real kind. Move over Spirituality and Religion. Hello Physics of Consciousness!

Hot off the Press! Similar results when talking smack or sweet to 2 halves of an apple.
Excerpt from the article:
“Let’s talk smack to apples and see what happens.”
Words can make you sick. And heavy. And dark.
Words can make you light. And radiant. And energized.
Words create worlds because the Universe is always listening.
… and so are your cells, your psyche, and your children, your team, and the apples.
