Helena's Healing Fund

Dear friends,

My name is Helena Baronheid and I am 48 years old. On November 2011, about a year and 3 months ago,  I was diagnosed with a stage IIIB  inoperable cancer and given 3 months to live (if I refused chemo and radiation)  by doctors here in Brazil.  I was also told by psychics I was going to die.

Somehow that did not feel true to me. Due to the complicated location of the tumor I chose not to follow the conventional route of chemo and radiation. 

Rather,  I started a healing journey that brought me to Casa de D. Inacio, a spiritual healing center located in a tiny town in the middle of Brazil run by a Spiritist healer and medium called John of God, who I had heard had cured many people of so called incurable diseases.

The positive changes I started noticing were so miraculous that I felt I had to be immersed in this "spiritual hospital", which is really what this place is, so I moved here to Abadiania for good in July of 2012.

Almost a year after I was told I was supposed to die, this is how I feel:

1.       I feel more alive than ever. I walk 45 minutes a day, I have reached my perfect weight, and I don't feel what I used the call "the cancer feeling" anymore "“ a feeling of something toxic and tiring running through my bloodstream. I feel full of energy and I share my story on stage with more than 700 people a day that come to John of God with hopes of healing.


2.       About 2 months ago I had a fever of 104 degrees for 4 days, and on the 5th day half of the tumor, which was an external tumor of about 6 inches by 3 inches, went into necrosis and simply disintegrated and fell off.  My Gerson doctor in Sao Paulo asked for pictures, which I sent, and he confirmed I had gone through a healing process which he didn't know how to explain.


3.       I have grown spiritually in ways I cannot describe in a few words. I am basically a different person right now. I have forgiven and got rid of old resentments, I have deepened my connection to friends and family members, I have experienced a strong connection to the Divine and to non-physical beings of Light that I only talked about theoretically but who I have now learned to deeply know and understand.


I am still in the middle of my healing process. Because I can't yet travel for work (and I was an Executive Leadership Trainer, so my job involved constant traveling, staying in hotels, etc.), I need to find ways to support myself while I stay here and complete my healing.  I am being called to work as a Spiritual Healing Teacher and Coach to assist others who are going through the arduous process of healing and return to life when they are given no hope by the medical establishment. I feel I have been given a new life, and I want to give back and live a life or service where I can assist others.


I would like to ask your help in assisting me to support myself for the next 3 months while I build my website and my client base as a coach while still being able to stay here and continue my miraculous healing. My heart goes out to you in deep gratitude for anything you could donate.

I am also starting an online class called "Difficult People and Other Angels"- http://www.vivainstitute.com/e-viva/difficult-people-and-other-angels/ , an amazing class on how to view your life difficulties as engines for growth and evolvement.

Thank you my friends for your support!
