20160301: Spiritual Being, Lady de los Lagos, confirmed.

San juan de los Lagos

The Church of the Lady of San Juan de los Lagos, if you concentrate on this photograph and try to connect with this entity, and tell “Her” that you are my “Amigo”, you may receive a personal visit. I do not order “The Lady” to do so. But the Entity is aware I pay all Spiritual energy bills, and may connect wherever on the planet It wants to. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016

If sincere in your request…

20160423: Well in reality, you can tell the local Spirit you Pray to that you are my “amigo”, any place on the planet, of any religion or spiritual practice. If you are sincere, your spirit can draw as much energy as needed to touch you personally. I am an energy conduit for ALL SPIRITS, including my ENEMIES.

OK, so I am spiritual being, on a spiritual journey on this planet. In 1960, I made a “SPIRITUAL VOW” to the Creator of this Universe, to never be a Part of ANY OF THE RELIGIONS OF THE BIBLE or it’s history.

In 1987, on a spiritual mission on my own to find this “Devil”, “Satan”, that so many humans BLAME people’s bad behavior on, I went into the mountains and summoned this “DEVIL”.

Satan, “DEVIL”,  has never made an appearance of any kind. Last year, I closed that door. However, while I was in spiritual mode on the mountain, the Christ Entity made an unusual act. While Christ knows I have a vow to his boss to, he performed Rev. 2:17. A white stone with a name that only Christ and I may KNOW. I had to sit down and read a Bible to learn of what his action was.

I was insulted, my vow…… years of meditations on it and I have an answer for myself. I am not afraid of Christ, we are friends. However he did nothing wrong, and neither did I.

He marked me as BEING very Spiritual and connected to the Creator of the Universe.

I am use to seeing spiritual stuff, so to have “The Lady of San Juan de los Lagos, come to me and offer me to visit her shrine was of amusing interest. But I informed her of my vow, spiritual being to spiritual being, she understood and did not take offense.

However, I come from sterile Los Angeles, and in now living with lots of New diseases. So in Feb. I got sick from the children (kids shares colds faster than anything else), got well, got hit again, then we have to work on the sewer system, I got hammered.

I take care of myself, so when at 3:30 am I woke to the realization my lungs were filling fast and I did not have time to not do something, I opened my healing hands and began curing myself. By sunrise my lungs were clearing, I could breath. I spent the next couple going into healing hands mode and applying to myself.

Yeah, the Lady came back to SEE me……  some 24 hrs after I did the healing hands on myself.

While I won’t go into the vision dream to much, I was lead to a farmyard, attacked by loving fawns and older deer, and children. The Unconditional loving energy was thick around me. Then I felt the presence of The Lady of San Juan de los Lagos. I turned and looked at a Spiritual Being, void of any church marking, beaming approval of my healing myself. again NO CLAIM ON ME, just approval. I was asked how many deer were around me,  I counted and said 5. The children were laughing and playing on top of me and the deer.   The number 5 is a number in Tarot cards of trials and spiritual work in progress. This place is a spiritual trial for me.

Yes, she sent me energy… BACK in response to my sending The Lady energy several weeks prior. I give energy to Spiritual Beings, I am Unconditional lovingkindness energy, I do not care if that Spiritual Being is other than my beliefs. They are, I must.

So if you want to find a place with a Spiritual Being in residence,  San Juan de los Lagos, does HAVE A REAL SPIRITUAL BEING to reach out to.

I have confirmed it. Personally, not just listening to a story.

The history is a little bit different from story to story, but Wiki states:

The sanctuary’s history begins in 1543 when Father Miguel de Bologna, a Spanish priest, brought a statue of the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception to the village. The town was then called San Juan Mezquititlan Baptist but its name was changed to San Juan de Los Lagos in 1623.[3] According to local histories, and some eyewitness accounts, a certain aerial acrobat was traveling along the Camino Real, “the Royal Highway,” from San Luis Potosí to Guadalajara, performing in the towns along the way. His act included his wife and two daughters. His stunts included swinging from one high point to another by means of ropes, in somewhat the same fashion as trapeze artists of today. To add excitement and an element of danger, the artists had to fly over swords and knives that were stuck in the ground with their points positioned upward.

While performing in the village, the younger daughter, a child of six or seven, slipped, fell upon the knives and was mortally wounded. After preparing the body and wrapping it in burial cloths, the grieving parents brought the child’s body to the chapel of Our Lady of San Juan for burial.

Meeting them at the door of the chapel was the 78-year-old Ana Lucia, the wife of Pedro Antes (the caretaker and custodian of the beloved statue). Feeling pity for the grieving family, she exhorted them to have confidence in The Virgin, who could restore the child to them. Taking the statue from its altar in the sacristy where it had been consigned because of its poor condition, Ana Lucia laid it near the child’s dead body. In a few moments, they detected a slight movement under the shroud. The parents quickly unwrapped the cloth to discover the child well and unharmed. This first miracle of Our Lady of San Juan de Los Lagos became known in neighboring villages and towns. Numerous other miracles and favors followed, until now Our Lady is venerated by pilgrims from throughout Mexico and the United States.[4]

Following this miracle, the statue began to be venerated by an increasing number of pilgrims including Indians, Spanish and mestizos. During this period the statue acquired its own local identity as Our Lady of San Juan de los Lagos. Between the early 17th century and the middle of the 19th century a pilgrimage fair was held each year on November 30 to celebrate the original installation of the statue in the shrine.

20160215: SPIRITUAL Payment accepted. San Juan de los Lagos with a smile.

I must award myself something for this, so the FaceBook meme gets a post too. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016


hah, as I thought, Joe calls his son and daughter regularly. So he told them and they saw it online as they were talking.
Joe has not seen them in 10 years. It was that long ago was the last photos were sent.
So, not a big deal of any measure, just as I suspected, while still a spiritual thing for me. Not worth mention beyond that.
We had fun talking and taking some photos for his children, this is Joe.

I will not have a story to chase, this is for the most part a closing.
I will talk and transfer messages a little while for Joe and his kids, it touches my heart at least.
It was a good feeling to help parent and child connect in some way.

As for where I go next, who knows? They don’t buy my kind of photography here, yes I found a shop for photo prints. I don’t do religious stuff, that is pretty much all that sells here.
Nope, services as artist/photographer teacher is out. Only churches have schools, I don’t do religious.

I would prefer a Buddhist or other not Bible or Muslin country.
I am however, wondering how many pesos in scrap metal my cameras might bright. If some one found it on the street, chances are they would Not know what it was. Let alone use one.
I have not seen a single postcard shop or stand. Photos on a plastic horse, yes a couple of those venders. No, you do not see people taking USA tourist pictures, or trying to buy them.

OK, so I did the meme for Facebook, but as a publisher of a blog I also had to put the story up on this blog itself.
Think of it???
200 readers on a great day. I’m so tiny a publisher, doing my thing since 1974… always listening to the comments of the “Pulitzer Prize Story”, knowing that a one man outfit doesn’t get awards, Public Awards. No profit for the Awarding people to reap.
Well, I am in San Juan de los Lagos, Jal. Mexico. A place I ended up in by chance, literally, letting pieces fall as they may, and pushing forward on the dream of keeping my Vanderhoof Photography business alive. Met “Joe” on the street of an exploring trip.
The reader and his daughter, as far as I know is living in the USA, “Joe” lived in the San Francisco area and left 5 or more years ago, to move back here.
So by a rough guess, coming from So. Ca. myself, straight line, that is about 3000 miles distance for the story to have traveled.
With only 200 readers on a GREAT DAY, a normal day is nearer to 100 of VP blog and LinkedIn repost visit numbers together. My Blog by it self alone did 148 in one day.
So, yes as a person who has calls myself a publisher since 1974,  I got the “Grand Prize”,
“SPIRITUAL Payment” check.
To have and BE a Part of a story that touches two hearts, here a father and daughter, found by a simple story, is by far the most tear jerking, heart warming thing this Old man can have happen!
It’s a multi part story/ blog post, HOT OFF THE PRESSES!, as it is happening… oh my god????
or a Real Dud, the guy ran on parole or something that cools it’s jets fast… Yes, we both relate to having been in prison.
But I get a story just the same on the first shot. Even if it is a “government troll”, I speak out, they will get exposed, a different story.
and a tear jerking memory for the rest of my life…
what a payment to an old worn and tired heart and soul, my thanks to “THE CREATOR”.
As for you blog publishers, hang in there, hit the beats, make the run for the extra effort. Who knows when a muse will drop in to visit, 4 yrs now, posting what I can, when I can, where I can.
Now, a  BEAUTIFUL memory, easy to recall, happy to die knowing ” I DID IT!”

But tomorrow? Maybe my 100 hits a post will be come a 1000 hits. Maybe, my next stop, job offer to visit and shoot some of my images for them somewhere new in the world.

It takes money to run my gear and sites, food and travel expenses. I have a “DONATE BUTTON”, if you enjoy my story, think I might help someone, some where else in the world, make a donation. If you have a place you would like me to visit, put it in my Comments, or email me. Australia, South East Asia would be nice to shoot Native, rural and landscape images for a little while.

I don’t make promises of miracles, but my energy pattern is me, so it comes with me and effects all in it’s touch.

I went over, but Joe is not home. I will post again tonight some street scenes of San Juan Lagos, and any updates on the email and Joe.
Always a spiritual journey, lovingkindness energy to all.
