My Scottish parents were managers of a cattle ranch in the remote interior of Brazil where I was born and raised. My early life was gloriously focused on horses and the enjoyment of a beautiful land. Over time I learned and lived the culture and lifestyle of England and the United States. All of this, including a wonderful daughter and son who are the delight of my life, are the fibers of the person I am today.
Yet from my first memory as a child, I had always felt something was missing. I grew up in the interior of Brazil where Shamanism is a way of life. My upbringing fostered my love and understanding of a culture that reflects tradition. My practice and teaching of Shamanism has a foundation in early exposure to healing methods that reflect harmony with Nature and the Universe. I spent many studious years seeking an understanding of unconditional love and a deeper purpose to my life.
One day someone asked if I would take a group of seekers to John of God. During a visit to the ranch where I was raised in Brazil, I decided to visit John of God’s Center in Abadiania.
In June 2000, my life transformed and changed beyond words.
John of God incorporated on the small stage in the Great Hall. I found all that I had been seeking and much more. The energy field was enormous, the unconditional love palpable. The Entity, incorporated in Medium João’s body, invited me to carry the instrument tray and watch a physical intervention. After this extraordinary experience, he told me to bring people from my country (I have dual citizenship and was living in USA). I then received a powerful transmission of energy and woke up in the infirmary!
Since that truly beyond words moment and experience, I have devoted my life to serving John of God’s mission; as translator and interpreter to John of God on his many events around the world, as a group leader, as daughter of the Casa and medium, and as a volunteer at the Casa de Dom Inácio. I could not have dreamed a more perfect and blessed life.
Over these years, I have had the privilege to be a guide and interpreter to so many group participants; people in search of healing and well-being and spiritual connection through the blessings of Entities that work with John of God. I have witnessed countless healings and transformations on so many levels. A deep bond is formed within our groups and wonderful friendships evolve. Most say they feel they find “HOME” at the Casa and a deep sense of belonging. I am deeply grateful to all participants who have trusted me on this journey and the wonderful friendships that we have formed and continue to form.
In 2012 I had the honor and privilege of organizing and hosting Oprah’s visit to the Casa and translating for her, Medium João and the Entities of Light. Her documentary is available on the internet on YouTube.
