Joao Teixeira de Faria, known as Joao de Deus or John of God, is arguably the most powerful unconscious medium alive today and possibly the best-known healer of the past 2000 years. However, Joao is a humble man who is very clear about one thing, “I do not cure anybody. God heals, and in his infinite goodness, permits the entities to heal and console my brothers. I am merely an instrument in God’s divine hands.” – Joao de Deus. These healings can occur on any level – spiritual, mental, emotional or physical. Dom Inacio, who is the Saint Ignatius of Loyola, is the patron spirit or the entity who directs the healing work from the spiritual dimensions.
The medium Joao has no formal medical training. Instead he gives over his consciousness and incorporates the spirits of past doctors and saints. These entities give talks, examine the waiting masses and conduct the visible and invisible operations. The concept of the Crystal Light Bed was channelled to Medium Joao who then had it developed for practical use and incorporated it as an important healing modality at his healing centre affectionately known as “the Casa” which is in Abadiania in central Brazil.
The Casa where Joao works is not a religious organization and does not have an affiliation with any religion. The Casa has received visits and commendations from representatives of the world’s major religious groups, government leaders as well as celebrities. It remains an unaffiliated meeting place for people seeking compassionate healing energy.
Joao’s reputation is now becoming worldwide due to massive media interest. There have been a handful of documentaries about Joao and his gifts. ABC Primetime has screened two shows and there has been a documentary on Irish television, English television as well as the Discovery Channel.
