View Full Version : San Francisco 8-23-2003/Blue Roses (split thread)
01-12-2004, 12:36 PM
Greetings, for some reason, I never thought to post my experiences on this website. Duh! I am still a newbie at this whole posting thing, so please forgive me if I am posting this in the wrong spot. I too was at the San Francisco Seminar, which completely blew my mind. I figured since this this thread was talking about experiences at the SF seminar on 8/22, I would start here with mine - even if it is almost 5 months overdue!
The seminar was an amazing experience and though I was not directly read, I received a reading more powerful beyond my wildest dreams.
In order to explain my reading let me share a quick backstory, when I first started watching COWJE everytime he'd mention a pink rose, I'd always say my family would never come through with that because they know how much I despise the color pink.
So back in January of 03 I invented a blue rose as a symbol of love for my family. In meditations and prayers I would always offer them blue roses as expressions of my love for them. This was so special to me that I never told anyone about this.
In June when I got the tickets I thanked my family on the otherside for the opportunity to attend, I knew I wasn't going to get a reading I was just grateful for the opportunity to see JE live and in person.
Each time I meditated I was extra sure to offer my blue rose of love in thanks. Now at this point in time in my own development, I still had an iota of doubt so I asked them that if John was real and the process was real to please find a way of bringing through our blue rose. Something I had created with them and I knew wasn't in John's vocabulary.
In July I had a dream that would be the major validation point that I wasn't losing it at the reading or making it up. In my dream I was taken to this place that was a hall of education. I knew it was the other side because I had this feeling that it wasn't my time to be there yet. I was shown around by one of my guides. They showed me a room full of people in a class room setting, I didn't recognize anyone but there was my blue rose sitting on the side of the room. It was beautiful and glowing and it was as if to say see, here ya go... Okay I thought and I filed the dream in the back of my mind - This dream would prove to be another validation point at the seminar.
That night at the seminar while John was reading the first couple, he mentions "and they are showing me pink roses..." my thought when he said that, was, "well I send my family blue roses in spite of your pink roses" - BHAM - "...they are showing me a blue rose, which is my new symbol for someone who has recently crossed"
I couldn't believe my ears. Blue Rose? Then as John was explaining how his new symbol came about chills went up my spine as I knew it could only be my family who got this through to me. He went on to explain how Shelley had shown taken him to the other side and he went to the room where Sandra's cousins were and there was the dead plant that shouldn't have been dead so using his mental powers he made it come to life as a blue rose. His description was eerie as that was the room I had seen in my dream....
I was grinning from ear to ear for the rest of the reading.... the love from the other side is more powerful than I had ever imagined.
On a post script note my blue rose was validated again when John validated it for the first time on the show, which happened to coincide with the exact day my Grandfather passed away... coincidence? John doesn't believe in them and after all that has surrounded that day, no longer do I.
Thanks for the forum to finally share my story and validation.:musicnote

What I love about this story is how it illustrates the way we are all connected in spirit, even when we have never met on this side.
BTW, as to the dream of the room, I had a dream in which I was taken to the room in which the November workshop was held, it was a very powerful dream, the kind you know is prophetic and that you never forget. In that dream, I met John. Only I had the dream seven years before I ever heard of John Edward which would be six years before CO started airing.

What an amazing experience! The only time I've heard of a Blue Rose is with Johns mediations - the arch of roses, walk through the reds, the oranges........
I hadn't heard him use a blue rose as one of his symbols - probably a bit behind over here :lwink:
And Theo - so you knew John before you knew John??
A blue rose. What an awesome validation for you. I think so many of us miss our validations because their not unique enough to catch our attention. I bet you about fainted dead-away at the seminar... would have loved to have seen your face. :)

:musicnote Thank you so much for you kind words, I don't know why I hesitated for so long in sharing this AMAZing experience. I was honestly afraid that no one would ever believe me because it was so mind blowing.
After the Blue Rose Validation my friend who was with me kept looking at me after that because I had this look of utter shock on my face of OH MY God! She kept asking if I was okay.
We didn't travel together so afterwards we were picked up by our S/O's and we couldn't talk about it. It would be almost a full month before I could tell her.
People talk about the calm they experience when John reads them, well some how this calm came over me where part of me was singing and dancing and the other part was in utter shock. I could barely talk I was so amazed. My friend was worried about me actually because I had been so bubbly and excited up to that point and all of a sudden I just stopped. But I just couldn't put into words what had just happened...
It was truly and experience I will NEVER forget. Thanks again! :jester:

You lucky girl, im so happy for you.
I have a friend who has an Estate in Goodlettsville, TN. He named it the Blue Rose Estate. His Mom, who has Crossed Over, loved them. There is such a thing....
I have been thinking about her this past week meeting MY Mom when she crossed over and then this thread comes to me!!! LOL
I think they've had coffee already!!! :D
Sending up :musicnote :musicnote :musicnote

:daisy: That is so awesome that they do exist ... sorry I don't know much about roses... I thought I made this flower up.
It is even more amazing about the timing of this post. The power of the Blue Rose is amazing to me, I never thought when I created this symbol for love for my family and friends on the other side that it would ever reach outside the confines of my world. I am so glad that it has.
I have also been informed that the theatre group at the high school that I attended in upstate NY now call themselves the Blue Rose Players... (when I was there it was just the drama group).
I think they must be all up there having a great cup of coffee in fine porcelin cups with blue roses all over them.

You are so lucky to be going to the Bridges Seminar!! Have a great time and I do hope they come through for you! :daisy:
I have a feeling that Blue Roses will come through a lot during that reading... and in unexpected ways (I wouldn't be surprised if John even makes a remark on how many Blue Roses appear... )
:musicnote I'll say a prayer for you and your loved ones and I do hope that they are loud enough to get John's attention, but after my experience, I know that they do hear you and are with you always in your heart.
Please keep me posted and tell me how it goes!!:jumper:
I will post when about the seminar as soon as I get the chance!

Just for you...

You have made my day!!:musicnote
I was missing my family this morning, so seeing the beautiful blue roses definitely put a much needed smile on my face.
Thank you!!! :daisy:

You should really write to John about the synchronicity of the Blue ROse event, and the validation you received! It's a wonderful 'heads up' to those who still kinda question it all.
01-14-2004, 11:47 AM
I did write John almost a month afterwards (9/17/03) to the JENewsletter address, but I never got a response. I also wrote a follow up email to him after the Blue Rose aired for the first time on the show (11/4/03 - which also coincided with the 3 yr anniversary of my grandfather's passing), but to this day I still haven't heard anything (1/14/03).
It would be awesome to have it validated by someone on the staff or John himself, but I know they are so busy and get so many emails and validations and letters of appreciation that I know its gotta be near impossible to get back to everyone. But now each time I watch his show now and he brings through his blue rose, it's like a shout out from my family:musicnote

As this relates to the earlier thread of my blue rose validation, here is the story that John shared with the audience at the SF seminar on August 22, 2003. My sincere apologies if this thread belongs somewhere else...
I've tried my best to remember all the details of this amazing story but as I was in a bit of shock myself at that point in time, some of the details are a bit fuzzy. If you remember it differently please let me know as I'd love to have the gaps filled in!
This is long winded, my apologies, and John I know does a much better job of telling it but here it goes....
One day in a meditation in July, Shelley Peck, John’s long time friend and fellow medium who crossed over in 2001 came to him and invited him to the other side as she had something to show him… John usually resists invitations to visit to the other side, but this time he was getting a green light from his “boys” so that night in his sleep he followed Shelley to the other side.
She took him to this classroom filled with people. It was an education hall as it was explained to him. In the back of the room were Sandra’s cousins, who were killed tragically in a car accident the year before.
Shelley explained to him that was a class where you come to terms with your passing and life review… As he looked around the room he saw a dead plant on the side of the room and thought it strange that it was dead, since this was the other side after all. He was confused by its appearance and Shelley said to him that it was up to him to fix it. So he thought about it and the plant that was once dead sprung to life as a blue rose. This new symbol would represent people who had recently (i.e. less than 6 months) crossed over.
A few weeks later that summer John took a trip to Italy and had a fabulous time in part because the show is not on in Italy and therefore no one has a clue as to who he is. He said he felt liberated by being able to walk up to people and say hi and no one had a clue as to who he was. They had a tour guide who took them around and also acted as a translator.
John asked the tour guide of his opinion of mediums and psychics and did they have any in Italy. The tour guides response was something to the effect that ya they had them but they were quacks (note wording is not exactly what John said but it was something to that degree… this is where my memory is fuzzy)
It was at that point that John decided to keep his mouth shut about what he did for a living. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and showed John and his family some amazing and beautiful sites.
One day while they are in ____________(?he named a part of Italy but I don’t recall exactly where) and after having looked at beautiful cathedral they stopped at a souvenir shop. Sandra was about to purchase some things when suddently the tour guide intervenes and takes her by the hand to a shop across the street.
It was at this point that John got his prickly feeling on the back of his neck of pay attention. Great, he thought, I’m on vacation, so he wheeled Justin over to the shop following Sandra. The shop did indeed have better souvenirs and John was keeping a watchful eye on Justin to make sure he didn’t grab or break anything. Then he heard the voice mention “go to the back, there is a beautiful statue there you will love…” so carefully John proceeded to the back of the shop.
When he did reach the back there indeed was a beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary (there is a specific name for the type but I can’ t remember – Fatima? Or Our Lady of Lords? I don’t remember…) anyway this statue blows John away at how beautiful it is and then he realizes that it is surrounded by 30 beautiful blue roses.
His feelings of someone trying to get through are also starting to get stronger… Then he turns and sees the shop owner behind the desk and feelings of love start to flood through him and his eyes well up with tears. Sandra looks at him and asks what is wrong. John tells her to which she responds, well you better do what you gotta do, we are on vacation and they are NOT coming back to the hotel with US!
So it is at this point that John has to tell their tour guide what he does so that he can translate to this woman what is coming through. So after a few minutes of brief explanation he starts to pour out the informaiton to the woman behind the counter, who is quite flabber gasted and starts to validate the inforamation.
It turns out her husband had crossed a week before and today was to have been their 30th wedding anniversary and on their anniversary he always gave her roses. As soon as John finished the cathedral bells chimed 30 times.
The tour guide was amazed at what had just happened for he had acted as the medium to this woman who had lost her husband... the tour guide had amazingly kept up with John and translated into Italian for the shop keeper.
This was John’s validation of the Blue Rose that he shared at the SF seminar. If anyone recalls any other details or if he told this story at other seminars, I'd love to know the other details. It is my hope that he will one day put it in a book or Bridges newsletter. Out of all the stories I have heard John tell and share, this is by far my favorite.

I can understand why that's your favourite story - WOW!!
I could listen to John for hours and hours - not the readings, the way he tells us of his own experiences
Thanks for sharing!
What a great story!!

Well I finally did hear back from someone on staff and this is what they had to say..
"Thank you for your E-mail to John... Although he cannot write a personal note to each of you, your comments are forwarded to him. "
It definitely lifted a weight from my chest... so its not a dead letter box

In honor of those on the other side, I wanted to use the picture that you sent me Tink if it is all right with you. Thank you for sending it to me.

To everybody that had a reading. I am still getting validations. I learn something new just about every day.

To clear up confusion, I used to be known as MHoupt on the board but I changed my screen name to PBPan ... to whoever split this thread out, thanks!
