Thursday, October 25, 2012

By 7:15 am we were back at The Casa de Dom Inácio where Medium Joao (John of God) does his work. I wanted to sit in the Current Room again as The Entity prescribed this to me yesterday.  I prayed that on this day I would be more comfortable and cooler. The mornings here are a bit cooler – by the afternoon it is over 90 degrees.  I was able to go right to the front of the line of people ...

October 24,2012, Abadiania, Brazil -- Global Oneness Day

Finally, the day had arrived when I was blessed to go before John of God (“Joao” in Entity.  I was SO excited that I could hardly sleep.  Everyone who goes before him is asked to wear white, so I got on my new white skirt and top – I felt as if I were going to my own wedding!  I definitely knew that this was going to be a very memorable day...

November 10, 2012

I have been home now for 6 days from my two week trip to Abadiania, Brazil to visit the Medium/Healer John of God (“Joao” in Portuguese.)  I still feel as if I am in an altered state, integrating the mind-bending and life-changing things I learned, witnessed and experienced. 

On October 21, 2012 at 4 am in Washington State I began my 32+ hour journey to Abadiania in a shuttle, three...

Preparing for my trip to visit John of God in Brazil

Posted by Rev. Meredith Ann Murray on October 20, 2012 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

In a matter of hours I will depart on a 28+ hour journey to Abadiania, Brazil.

I am going on a spiritual pilgrimage of healing to visit a man called John of God.  He is a "reluctant mystic", rather like Edgar Cayce.  About 40 years ago when Joao (John in Portugese) was an illiterate 16 year old farmer with only a 2nd grade education, he began to heal people.  Spiritual entities began using him as a Medium to ...

Hearing "The Call" and Following Guidance

Posted by Rev. Meredith Ann Murray on October 8, 2012 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (2)

Many people have asked me how and why I became an Interfaith Minister, so here's the story:

It was the first time I had ever had such a powerful experience of "knowing."  In late 2003, I was reading an e-mail from James Twyman, the author, movie maker and "Peace Troubador".  I had subscribed to his "list" after a friend kept forwarding his notices to me.  When I read about the Seminary of Spiritual Peacemaking that he was f...

Yesterday was a big day.  I had been putting this off for months, but I finally went to see my Orthopedic Doctor to get a handicapped permit for my car.  He understood as he has had both of his hips replaced and he is a few years younger than I!

I feel so sad that it has come to this, but my world has been getting smaller as I have more and more pain in my left hip.  The x-ray last summer showed it was nearly bone on bone, but since th...

September 30, 2012 -- Meredith's Blog: First Entry!

Posted by Rev. Meredith Ann Murray on October 1, 2012 at 12:55 AM Comments comments (2)

Several people lately have suggested that I start a Blog.  So, here I go…along with a million other bloggers.  To quote a phrase I learned in my 8 years in Al-Anon, a 12-Step Recovery Program for families and friends of Alcoholics, “Take what you like and leave the rest.”  It is doubtful that everything I talk about here will resonate with you, but I do hope that some of my thoughts contribute to your growth, to the raising of consciousness and ...
