In Brazil, John of God performs physical interventions. He does not perform these interventions outside of Brazil for legal reasons. However the spiritual intervention (invisible interventions or spiritual surgery) are somewhat like a blessing or invisible healing.
John of God sometimes prescribes a “Spiritual Intervention.” This means that you are to come back to the following Casa session (if John of God prescribes this in the morning, it will usually be for the afternoon, if John of God prescribes this in the afternoon, it will usually take place the next morning). Interventions are performed by John of God in Entity at the beginning of the casa sessions. Occasionally John of God will perform an intervention at the same time the person asks their question in line.
Often now the Entity will invite all those in certain lines, or perhaps anyone who chooses to come forward and have an immediate intervention.
If John of God prescribes an intervention for you, this means that it is generally a spiritual or invisible intervention unless you want to volunteer for a physical intervention. Some people feel like the physical interventions are stronger, other’s believe that the invisible intervention is just as strong and that a physical intervention is just to set that person’s believe system. That some people feel they need to experience something physical in order to believe they have been worked on. Only in Brazil, John of God sometimes performs physical interventions on stage to give a demonstration of a miracle to the people.
Experiencing an invisible intervention is similar to a short meditation. A group of people are taken into the “intervention room”. They are instructed to close their eyes. John of God in Entity comes in the room and says prayers. They are then healed by John of God through an invisible spiritual intervention.
After the John of God intervention the person must return to their hotel room (by taxis even if very close by) and stay there for 24 hours wearing white. It is in your room where the spirits will work on you. You need to sleep and relax during this process.
This for me was an amazing experience and I actually felt, sensed and saw Entities in my room working on me. Many people feel the energy of the intervention back in their room. A lot of my clients were able to see the Spirits working on them.
In Brazil herbs are always given after intervention. Now there are a few rules that must be adhered to after an intervention. You should make sure you are willing to follow these rule before you go in for intervention. These are;
For 40 days:
No sex, or raising of sexual energy. (2nd intervention it is only 7 days).
No pepper (black or white pepper or any spicy peppers such as chili pepper, cayenne, etc.).
(as of Sep 2012 pork is now allowed but no fertilized eggs)
These rules are set by the entities. And we believe it is because these things can change your energy. It is also important that you do not receive energy healing from others during this period. The Spirits are working with you and adjusting your energy and you do not want to interfere with this process. This is why, even though I practice Reiki and energy healing, when acting as a guide to my clients, I cannot do any kind of energy healing on them at the Casa.
If you have a distance healing, you only need to follow the rules of no pepper and no alcohol until the herbs are finished.
