About Joseph “Man of God”
Have you ever felt like there was someone in the room with you even though you knew the doors were locked and you were alone? It happens to Joseph LoBrutto of South Florida, all the time. “Most people shrug off the line ‘I see dead people,’ made famous by the movie Sixth Sense and such shows as Ghost Whisperer and Medium; but it’s something that really happens. It’s been happening to me since I was a child,” he said. Joseph was born in Long Island New York and raised in South Florida. He is Italian/Spanish and has the Tiano (Caribbean Indian) bloodline as well. It is on his Mothers side (Spanish/Tiano) that generations of psychics, mediums, trance channels and spiritual healers prevail.
The force was always strong with Joseph the “Man of God” when he was just a child of God. He reflects back to his earliest memory of collecting Saints like kids would collect baseball cards. Every Sunday at his church he would use his allowance and buy Saints and post them on his windowsill. Yes, this was not an ordinary hobby but then again this was not an ordinary boy. Joseph’s most vivid early memory of an encounter with a spirit came shortly after the death of his paternal grandmother when he was just 10-years-old.
“Her spirit came to me in my bedroom one night. She told me she loved me and wanted to say goodbye. It was then when I realized that the parade of people that visited me where ghosts and I wanted them to go away. I can remember being so frightened that I slept with the lights on hiding underneath the covers until they went away.”
It wasn’t until a decade later when he was in his 20’s that he allowed the spirits back into his life. After watching the Shirley MacLaine movie, “Out on a Limb” Joseph’s curiosity got the better of him. “I began browsing through the materials at New Age book stores and started taking channeling classes,” he said. “It wasn’t long before my spirit guides returned.” The first time he channeled, his arms lifted as if they were floating in water and stayed in place for what seemed like hours. A blending of three guides of Joseph came through, and identified themselves as The Collective. They told me my purpose was to become a messenger for a higher power — to let people who are curious about the New Age know what it’s all about. I was to help those who were grieving along with those who need direction in life.
It wasn’t until later on when his cousin Joey passed away from a heart attack at 34 did Joseph finally takes his gift serious. He remembers after Joey’s funeral he was driving home and heard Joey’s voice and looked over to see him sitting there on the passenger seat begging him to talk to his wife. Because he died very suddenly of a heart attack, he just wanted to say his final goodbye to the love of his life. Joseph’s cousin was the first to open the door for Joseph becoming a medium. Joseph shares that “being a channel means spirits can merge with me, and their personalities come through to communicate with their loved ones like the movie Ghost with Whoopi Goldberg and Patrick Swayze. Referring to his cousin Joey’s initial request, “I always say that he wanted to do a “Whoppi” on me to talk to his wife. [Mediumship feels like] It’s a conscious thought that moves in, and it’s almost like putting on a raincoat. You don’t check out of your body, and the spirit does not check in, but we merge.”
To fulfill his destiny, LoBrutto has been doing a lot of learning. It was John of God from Brazil who informed Joseph that he will be coming into his healing abilities. Today many have witnessed the miraculous healing of diseases, truma and depression along with receiving spiritual balance for a healthy Mind, Body & Spirit. Joseph is an ADL Minister, Spiritual Life Coach, Spiritual Healer and a teacher of intuitive development. In addition, he is a certified psychic medium and a published author.
Joseph reflects, “This is where the title ‘Man of God’ came into play. I was tapping into The Christ energies bringing in spiritual information through that lead me to writing books, producing energy and healing cards, affirmation cds and doing shows.” Joseph book, “Is There More to Life Than What We Know?” is a memoir that reviewers say is a great read for those familiar with the New Age Movement. “It also serves as a good introduction to the movement for those who have never been exposed to before,” said LoBrutto. Joseph regularly appears as a guest on radio and television shows. His office is in Boca Raton Florida and does phone and Skype session all over the world.
