One night on our recent Brazil trip with guides Bob Dinga and Diana Rose, Rev. Paul Funfsinn held a communion service in his large room. 27 people from our group crammed into his room, with a few in the doorway and just outside. Valentina, a wonderful “angel lady” who has been especially blessed (along with her camera) by the sacred Entities of the Casa to capture spirit photos, shot these amazing pictures of the short but deeply felt service.
The photos in this entry are unretouched, un-“photoshopped.” I know because I was there when they were shot and saw them in the camera minutes after they were taken. They reveal so much about the spiritual beings we are, and those that are always around us.
The photo above was taken by Valentina with the intent and request to see the spiritual level. You’ll note that everyone appears to have a double image, like the old “double exposure” in film photography. But it isn’t double exposure. Valentina said to me that you are seeing the spiritual body (known in some other spiritual systems and practices as “the double”) and that it rises up in states of deep devotion, meditation and prayer.
Next, Paul is blessing the bread (communion wafers). Notice the blurred second image behind his head but not on other parts. It was also said to me that Spirit often uses the light available (especially candles) for manifestations. But what’s done with it in those split seconds is extraordinary.
If you ever needed evidence that prayers of consecration actually transmit divine energy, watch what happens as that energy manifests right towards the communion plate.
The energy here is either coming off the communion table or my guitar. Either way, I’m happy. We had been singing “Come Holy Spirit”. Looks like the prayers were answered!
After the service; an extraordinary one in which we all felt the Power, we were happy campers indeed. The white swirls or clouds of energy are visible like moving webs of light.
