Trips to John of God at the Casa

Kathy's first trip to John of God was November 2008 for spiritual growth. In March 2009, she left her corporate life in information technology and returned to the Casa with a group of friends. The Entity incorporated in the body of John of God acknowledged her as a Daughter of the Casa and Guide. Kathy has always been drawn to Brazil and traveled there several times before learning about John of God and the Casa.

Kathy is an Official Guide and a well-respected medium at the Casa and by John of God and his staff. She speaks Portuguese and loves to share her passion for the Casa and mission of John of God. Kathy is well versed in Casa protocols and takes care of the complex details so that you can focus on your healing process.

Gift Beyond Wildest Dreams

It surely was a great group of five that had the opportunity to share and receive your amazing guidance, love, laughter, and wisdom for two weeks. A gift beyond the measure of my wildest dreams…..so reassuring to know that you were “always present” to provide safe and joyful passage into the wondrous healing experience available to us. Thank you dear Kathy!!

Extremely conscientious guide

I have been to the Casa in Abadiania twice, both times with Kathy South. There is a reason the Entities recommend that you go there with an official guide-the procedural rules they have established for healing are complicated and can be confusing. With Portuguese-speaking Kathy at your side, you can concentrate on your healing-and she will make sure that you follow the necessary steps. She puts her full attention on helping those who accompany her to the Casa; and she is extremely conscientious and unselfish with her time. Going to the spiritual hospital at the Casa in Abadiania was incredible, and going with the deeply spiritual Kathy made it even more special. Thank you, Kathy!

Rough start to transformational experience

Being at the Casa presented challenges for me. I became irritable and extremely negative within 48 hours of arrival. Kathy immediately refocused me by her quick verbal response stating “The only thing you need to do is to focus on YOUR HEALING, NOTHING ELSE.” They seem like obvious and simple words but, when your in Abadiania, you’re in another world altogether and this straight forward guidance is the only thing that kept me in Brazil, open and receptive to healing. Kathy’s guidance and diligent refocusing continued for the duration of my experience and she is the only reason that I made it through without leaving. Feeling confident in front of John of God is only possible with a guide that not only speaks Portuguese, but assures you that your brief time with the Entities is effective. Kathy is well known in and around the Casa which is conducive for your relaxation into the healing environment. This experience has been transformational and I am so happy to have met Kathy.

How can I keep from singing?

What words could possibly describe my journey to Brazil . . . amazing energy, unconditional love, and joy, joy, joy! To quote my favorite hymn: “How can I keep from singing?”

Absolutely amazing, unique adventure

The Casa tour is an absolutely amazing, unique adventure. The Casa is a simple place filled with wonderful people, inspiring stories and a powerful sense of community. My experience connecting with the healing energy varied from subtle to WOW. Through it all, Kathy provided guidance on the Casa protocols and opportunities to make my trip even more enjoyable. And since the healing continues even after you leave, this is a trip that keeps on giving. Hope to see you there.

Deepest gratitude

When my brother and I decided to see the John of God, we knew nothing. We looked at all Casa group leaders and chose Kathy. We wanted Kathy to be our guide because the information she provided either on the phone or in her website about the trip was comprehensive, simple and extremely helpful. Kathy is a caring, kind, generously helpful, easygoing, cheerful and energetic person. She elegantly explains everything one needs to know about the trip to Abadiania, the Casa and John of God. Her ability to speak Portuguese is very valuable to communicate with locals and others at the Casa. Since we came back from Abadiania, we have been recommending Kathy as a Casa guide to friends and relatives because we know they will have a pleasant and memorable trip to Abadiania.

Dearest Kathy: We would like to thank you and express our deepest gratitude for your kindness, help, support and guidance and thank you for making our trip to Abadiania an easy, productive and fun trip to remember for ever. God bless you!

I believe I am completely healed

On January 5, 2005 I was at work and suddenly lost my voice. I went home and by the next day I could not walk, talk, see, or breathe properly. I was seen by approximately 35 specialists none of which could offer me any hope except to learn and live with it. I suffered with Hemiplegic migraines, Cranial and Laryngeal Dystonia, Vocal Fold Motion Disorder, Diplopia, Ataxia, C2-C7 were severely compressed and degenerative and two discs were bulging. I had a pinched nerve which caused constant pain down my left arm. I had a lump in my left arm pit which was confirmed by ultrasound and skin cancer (sun) on my lip known as a Venus Pool which was black in color.

I had never heard of John of God before the Oprah show. I was so excited to see the show on the Friday night in the spring of 2013 I could barely contain myself. I was so lucky the show repeated again on Saturday and Sunday. I knew from the first moment I saw the show that I would be healed if I made it to the Casa. Little did I know that John of God was in Toronto, only a half hour drive from my home on the days that I watched the Oprah program. It just shows you that the Entities have things planned for you, you don’t make your own plans. But I was so ill I couldn’t travel. I was able to send my photograph down to Brazil and was told that the Entities would be working on me, but it would take a long time. This was in March and I was given a Blessed Crystal and a Triangle necklace which I wore day and night and I meditated. I became well enough to travel alone and began making plans. Being on disability did not allow me much in the way of extra income and I was lucky enough to find Kathy South, who I found her price as a guide to be fair beyond anyone else, and easy to work with. Not only did Kathy guide me through the ways of the Casa, but she also set up a tour of Brasilia prior to our arrival in Abadiania.

In June of 2013 I arrived in Abadiania. I consider it a place that God left untouched and only added the bare necessities. I found myself suddenly enjoying life without televisions, or the rush of life back home. I suddenly began to experience constant migraine headaches, which I hadn’t had in months. They continued for days and I started to have my episodes (seizures) again, approximately 4-5 times daily. When this happens I lose my sight, speech, and ability to walk as my left side goes limp. As a result I ended up pushing around a wheelchair and when an episode hit me I would use my wheelchair.

Kathy directed each of us in the group as to which line we should go in at the Casa. Being at the Casa had a lot of protocol, but we were easily directed by Kathy. Without her I don’t know how I would have made my way around. I had my first spiritual surgery on the first Thursday and asked for healing for my headaches and Dystonia. By the next morning my headaches were gone and so was my Dystonia and the weakness on the left side of my body. To this date I have not had another episode.

I knew that my life would change forever when I attended the Casa and went before John of God (The Entity), but nothing prepared me for such a spiritual surrender as during my second surgery. I requested to have visual surgery and was placed in the front of the Entities Chair. I was told to place my right hand over my heart and my left hand at my side, keep my eyes closed and think of 9 items I wanted healed. It seemed like I waited forever, then suddenly my left arm rose in the air on it’s own until it was even with my shoulder. It stayed there without me doing anything. Then my body began to lean forward with my heels off the ground and I stood only on my toes. I felt my rosary and necklaces hanging straight down to the ground. It felt like I was being held gently, yet securely. Tears started to run down my face and I suddenly realized that I wasn’t breathing any more. It was then that I knew I was being held by angels and was being touched by God. This was such a divine moment in my life that I will never, ever forget. I could not hear anything, then suddenly the Entity placed his left hand on my back and his right hand on my right hand, which he squeezed very hard and said something in Portuguese. I then fell backwards into a wheelchair and went to the infirmary. I could not open my eyes on the way even if I wanted to. I was placed on a bed and once my shoes were off I felt tremendous pain and heat coming out of the bottom of my feet. This went on for about 15 minutes and then I fell asleep for about an hour. During this healing, I asked that I have my neck repaired, all my organs cleansed, and my Vocal Cord Motion worked on. After I returned to my hotel room, I slept for 24 hours.

My health has continued to improve daily, and my doctor is decreasing my medications. I was taking 21 or more pills per day just to get by. It will take about 6 months to get my meds down to where I would like them, but this is a beginning. I plan to return to Abadiania later this year and again next year, and the year after that, etc.

As far as I go medically, I am still episodic free. I have not lost my vision, speech, breathing, or ability to walk since I was healed at the Casa. I am also still pain free in my neck (which was compressed and degenerative from C2-C7, with 2 bulging discs). I believe it is completely healed. The pinched nerve going down my left arm is completely gone and my arm is pain free for the first time in 30 years, along with my neck. The lump under my left underarm is completely gone, and I will be getting an Ultrasound to confirm it. The sun cancer, or Venus pool on my lip is almost completely gone. I am migraine free. I am free of all my depression and my doctor is slowly reducing my medication for both this and pain. I am getting only half of the Percocet and the rest is Tylenol 3. It will decrease from there along with other meds.

Thank you Kathy for helping guide me through the Casa.

Peace is a miracle, too

Peace is a miracle, too

In the back of mind, I have this vision of never-ending blue skies filled with myriad cumulus clouds above Abadiania. I feel the gentle warmth of the climate and hear the secret peace of the little town. These are physical symbols I use to contemplate that place where my soul supped upon a similar vista, but one of a spiritual nature: a place where it is common to actively welcome a splendid, healed world and a splendid, healed life; where miracles greet you like an old friend and you feel like you did when you were a kid, only a kid with all your tribulations held up and healed.

The Casa has it’s own practical way about it, just as any place that does things has its way. There were many parts to it that made sense only after getting to know it. Having someone there that knows the Casa like a friend, as Kathy does, allowed me, without having to lift a finger of effort, to experience the Casa carefree and focus just on my little part; and so, it allowed engagement with the Case to be purely beautiful.
