what an awesome awesome night it was!!!!!!! im really happy i was able to go, and this whole experience has shown me even more how everything happens for a reason.
first off i want to say thank you to Sabine on here, for that extra ticket!!!!!!!! My cousin Debbie was able to go because of her!!! and what a small world it is because Debbie and Sabine had met before! so how cool is that, that they ended up next to each other.
All of our prayers worked for John, because he wasnt sick any more. he seemed really energetic and REALLY funny tonight!!! i couldnt stop laughing!!! he just loves to joke around! he said how he went to the hospital to get his gallbladder checked, and how he gave the doctor tickets to a seminar. he was like its like i'm a visa commericial! he even said how the receptionist was suprised it was him and started talking to him, and at the end of the conversation she was like, "well i need some sort of ID and insurance.." the way he told it was really funny!!! but he's all better now.
he started late, which actually was good. we had gotten lost going there and thought we were late, but it all worked out. the reason for us being late was signs not being marked clearly which was really frustrating because we kept going in circles! and then when we got there the police directing traffic was going to make us go to a different lot for parking and take a shuttle and im like please let me park here, i got lost and im going to be late so after begging the nice cop he let us park in this really good spot. so we ran to the entrance and made it in. the seats marion and i had werent really close up, but we were in the right section in the middle.orignally my neighbor lee ann was supposed to go with me, but she couldnt at the last minute, so marion came in her place. he called on her to ask a question so she was really excited!!
john talked a lot more and answered more questions before doing readings. i liked listening to all the stories. he's so funny!! i jotted down notes of all the readings, short hand style so i could be able to fully enjoy it all. for one thing his aura was really strong tonight. i could see it entirely around his body the entire night. that was the first thing that struck me about him was how powerful his aura was. it kept changing from a soft yellow color to white. it was so beautiful though!!!
i promise i will write more, but right now i really need to get some sleep. the seminar tomorrow is in the afternoon, but im gonna leave in the late morning so i have plenty of time with traffic and everything, so i will post more about this seminar, and tomorrow's seminar, in the late afternoon early evening. id really love to write more, but my eyes are falling asleep lol
the best part of the evening was the blue rose validation, that had special meaning to Megan, PBpan, and it literally shocked me and i had the chills and tears in my eyes and at that moment i knew why i was there. it was a beautiful moment and im glad i was able to share the message with megan!!!!!but like i said ill get into more detail tomorrow...
to be continued....

John's stories are the best. In another thread you mentioned that JE was writing a book of Prayers. I remembered he mentioned it in Minneapolis as well.
Thank heavens he did not have gall bladder problems - nasty stuff.
Thanks for the update Amy. Enjoy today - can't wait for page two... :D
Sounds like a great time Amy- I can't wait to hear more! :jumper:
06-12-2004, 10:38 PM
sorry to keep you all waiting!!! first ill talk about friday june 11!!!
ok so from what i can remember, john gracefully walked out and got a standing ovation. he then announced how Crossing Over was crossing over and how he thanked all of the audience because we were what made the show. so he began to talk about that. he also began to talk about the Molasses effect. The molasses effect is what happens at the end of any seminar/gallery/event when people go home and some are dissappointed and he feels as if he didnt get to read enough people. this then brought him into the story about how he was going to be doing readings for the Compassionate Friends (a group made up of parents that have lost children for over 3 yrs). so he was running late, and when he got to the room he noticed all these suitcases, but didnt think of anything of it. he then began to say who he was and his little speech, until he saw the director of it all in the doorway and was like "what are you doing?!" it turns out he was in the JAZZ room! so finally he went to the right room and began doing readings but he wasnt able to do everyone. that night he went to sandra's house (they were still dating at the time) and he came into the living room and he was just starring at the TV. sandra comes in and is like "you know my parents think your weird as it is, but if your actually seeing something on that tv..." lol and then john was like i have to go. i forget what he said next but he then was saying how its important to move thru the devastation and not stay stagnant. he was saying how its not about getting read, its about understanding. it's that knowing he wants to validate. he then began to say how its like if he was to go to ethiopia with a pizza pie, some people would be able to taste it, but the rest would smell and it and see it, but not be fed..they would still be hungry.. that's when he said how he could never be able to feed everyone.
he told some more stories and was constantly cracking jokes!!! john is such a comedian!!!! he really brings the comic relief aspect to life! he was saying how he loves to do seminars in the NY/NJ area because the crowd has personality. then he was taking some questions.and called on my friend Marion as question number 3! (now you see orignially my neighbor and good friend Lee Ann was supposed to attend this with me, but couldnt at the last minute so she thought of Marion. well its true how the people that are meant to be there will be there..) so marion asked him a question pertaining to religion and how what he thinks about people thinking his work is of the devil. he began to explain how he is catholic and how that is the framework of what he does, but it is thin. he said what he does is really not anything with religion--its all energy! he then made an analogy about it by pointing to this huge 4 sided scoreboard thing in the middle of the ceiling. he pointing that that would be god. but each side is a different color and cant see any of the other colors unless you are looking from that perspective. he's like that's what its like with religion. i really thought that was powerful.
after the questions he got right into the work.and like i said before, his aura was so illuminating!!!!!!! pure beauty!!
i took notes on the readings. i was really multi-tasking it since i was writing notes and trying to pay attention and just be in the moment. its really just an honor to be in his presence.
the first reading he began to get a mom figure, angela and he kept seeing a wedding band that was silver and had a distinct leaf that was platinum with little diamonds. she was an instigator who would bust your chops. then he was getting a father in law, the name louis, and saying july 6 or 16 had significance. the dad passed before her. then there were 8 kids in the family and a lot of pink roses. he then was getting a caution for either breast or ovarian cancer. he then began to explain how important it is to be persistant with your on doctor, because you are your best patient advocate. then he was getting 2 people with M-A-R names. then a younger cousin very short with light blonde hair with a distinguishing feauture on her face. april 4 had a connection. then he was seeing this stuffed animal that had a cotton tail, almost as if pieces of it were sown together.then there was a joke with the daughter about cigarettes and how this woman staged an accident, to teach her daughters a lesson and that's how she passed. he was fluttering, so someone was pregnant...
the next reading he was getting a son who passed in a vechile accident. it was in an area with planted trees.he was getting 8 either august or 8th of a month. persistant that it was an event, not healthcare in which this person passed. paul, pat name. one really good thing was this person was a drinker in life, but he came thru saying he doesnt drink alcohol anymore. he says this was one of the few times a person actually acknowledged that, because normally john jokes around saying how they are at the otherside bar. then he was getting a c or k name, lung cancer, and someone was misdiagnosed. actually the wife of this man who passed was very funny. she had the funniest attitude and really was making john crack up. she was saying how if he didnt come thru she was going to dig him up and move his grave! he also began to talk about a chris in uniform who she was flirting with, and she claims she didnt even realize it. it was funny because she was like well how about he sends me someone in uniform. and she was saying how the man she was talking to was on the beach, and hopes it is someone in uniform..he also said that is fine to move on. he also said did you just get rid of a car? and she did and he warned her to check the 2 tires in her current car.
the next was a smaller reading because he started reading one of the workers in the back of the room standing. there was a gunshot, and he was getting a dad figure, J or G name, someone older with colon cancer and then another J like joseph,john, james..
then another father jumped in to a person standing back there, this time connected to karen/carrie who was catholic and had the rosary beads. this woman was a leader in someway now, more than she ever was, and they were saying thank you. he was getting an A name like annette, anthony..mom's mom passed...and getting horses as if someone raised horses. someone listens to reggee merangue and she said that was her son, which he validated, Mike. he said congrats on the house and what they did with the wall.
then someone asked a question about people who are just mean and not friendly, what happens to them when they get there.. and he said how when we all get there, we will go thru a life review and will expereince your life and how you will feel all the emotions that you made someone feel..and how you shed negativity. he then began to tell the story about his aunts husband who no one in his family liked. he was a tough man, hard to get along with. everytime john would carry his mother upstairs, he would sit and grin at her. this made his mom cry and john always felt bad for his mom. after he finally passed, john invited his aunt to a small session, to watch and just see the work in action.he was like he wasnt so smart, because he forgot that sometimes people dont just watch, they get read. well his uncle came thru. he showed him a picture of a woman in underwear on a bed, and it turns out his aunt had just found those pictures because that was his ex girlfriend. the thing that totally shocked him the most was John's mother and grandmother were the ones who greeted him when he crossed over.
another person asked a quesiton, i forgot what it actually was, but the response blew me away. (now back track a bit, remember Megan PBpan and her validation with the blue roses? well its really amazing how spirit works. she and i write to each other a lot, and i asked her what would be a good question to ask him, and she wrote me back saying i should ask him about the blue roses. so here i am raising my hand but he wasnt going to my section.) well the next thing i know john begins to say how he and sandra were italy on a vacation and how nice it was because no one recognized him. he was even in the cab talking to the driver and was like do you believe in psychics? and he was like "no" john was like "yeah me either" then some how he mentiones how he had this dream with shelley peck in it, and she was saying you need to take over, i need you, im too busy.. john was confused and then there was this plant all withered and wilted and he was like well make it come alive. and jokingly hes like what am i going to wiggle my hands and make it come alive? then when it did come back to life it was a blue rose!!! then the next day he and sandra are in this flower shop, and all of a sudden he starts speaking italian and giving messages to the person in the store, and they wouldnt validate anything until he bought something, and then he saw 30 blue roses on the wall..... when he said that i was so suprised!!! it really gave me the chills and tears in my eyes to be hearing that!!!! i knew that i had to be the messenger and deliver that message to megan!! i couldnt wait to tell her!!!!! i mean what are the chances!!!!!! how incredible is that!!! and funny how that night he was saying how one of his favorite CO episodes was the one about the messengers.
then he was saying Jillian, Joann, and 3 or march march. he was a getting a father figure with an R name like robert or roger.there was an academic guy with schools, carl or charlie, september or 9th of a month, something with bone marrow organ transplant and to tell the C or K in education that they ARE ok..and someone is pregnant..
then he was getting the bra lady, something with bridal showers. he asked did someone make these? connected to the B like betty,benny,beth. this was like a shower gag gift..older female with this funky bra. something with a piano, who had a teacher/lessons. then freddy/fritz/fran and he has the grandparents together. there was an elaine or helena with a husband brother figure and a male cousin..bernie or bernadette.
next reading was a dad coming thru, somethin to do with our lady of guadalupe, 6th of a month or june, there were 2 surgeries or procedures. the mother passed before him and they have met up with each other. does someone use his pillow? his wife does and he was acknowledges what she does with that, and also with her words, something online, verbal. then the dad did not have a good relationship with one of his boys. pushed one harder than the other.. fishing for baracude, liver/ stomach cancer connected to the mother in law..then he acknowledges her new hobby with fixing things, something this woman never did before. he sees what shes doing. teases her for sneakin out to get food. it turns out one night at 2am her and her girlfriend snuck out to nyc to get the dirtywater hot dogs and came back! then talking about his kids again how one son is different than the other.. he wants them both to know he loved them equally, he was worried he pushed one too much. he is still around and maybe to tell him to write his dad a letter to help him not be so angry. also to not get upset with her son because everyone takes their own time to deal with grief.
and then someone asked him about Justin, and he said how John has gotten Justin's chart done by numerous psychics, and they all have been getting the same thing, that he has a similiar chart to john's only that if he choses to go on this path he will be bigger and better than john..
and he thanked everyone again for crossing over and then he walked off the stage. i really thought it was an amazing seminar!!! the energy was great and he was just as funny as ever!!!!!!!!!!!

Toms River Day 2, June 12,2004
First i want to say what a pleasure it was to meet and sit with Veronica (antsmom)! we had a great time and im glad she was able to go!!!
when he came out, he said how he likes this better than CO because its live, and there are no commercials, and how it all flows. he says how it inspires things we are already doing.
he said how his first psychic reading reminded him of what he was here for and showed him and put him on his path. basically he questioned what she did, which let him learn about himself.
he talkd about how a memory is a feeling a moment. he explained how important moments are, and how everything can change in a moment.moments help us to understand and remember.
he then talked about similiar stories about the molasses effect. he told the story about when sandra lost her grandma, she would call john from portugual and everyday she would ask him, did you hear from her yet? (around that same period john had also lost his grandma and he heard from her within 2 weeks.) john kept reassuring her, when its the right time and told her to just say prayers on her own with out him. then finally one day in his office when she was bringing him the mail, he was like your grandma is here. and began to give her a reading. the one think she validated was sandra told her that if it was really her coming thru to john to mention the bag with rocks in it---and john did. in her pocket was the bag with the rocks, that she used and told her grandma to use as her validation. john was like sandra! it was funny how he said it and told the story. he said it was amazing how she changed because after that, like 6 months later, she no longer needed john because she could connect whenever she wanted. and that's the message you dont need him, or any medium. you can connect on your own!
then someone asked him about when you get to the otherside do you know everything? he said how you are given some knowledge and how the otherside is made up of levels where you expereince god and spirituality. he said they are not omniscient and are not constantly there like personal business...which led him into telling the story about how the other night in connecticut someone straight out told him "Is my father watching us when we are having sex?'' normally john says people beat around the bush, which led him into the story on crossing over--the sex lady, who was really the sex education teacher? that was a really funny episode and im sure you have all seen that.. and it turns out she was in the audience and she was like John that was me!! and john was so suprised!!! then to get back to the CT womans question, he jokingly said yes they are watching you and judging you like the olympics (9.9, 9.8) and that made the crowd roar!!!
the next question someone asked was about reincarnation. he says he believes we dont do it quickly. he made the analogy how if you worked your butt off to be a doctor, and went thru school after school, after you finally become one are you going to suddenly go to school to be an attorney? No, you will use you what you have learned.... i thought that was a really awesome way of putting it...
someone then asked if its been a long time, how will we see see them when we get there and he said it will be thru soul recognition which is like a frequency. he also said how they usually come to their own wakes..and he made some jokes about that as well.
he also said how if the otherside comes thru witha sign to you, and you acknowledge it adn say thank you they will continue to send signs. but that could also work in the opposite way, if they think it wont help you they will stop.
also said how we have to live life for ourselves and not for anyone else. we are in charge of our own lives.
one thing i thought was really aweosme was how he said a lot of the producers from CO were there, basically the CO family and he said they said their meditation so that john will get to the most families as he could. i really think that helped because there were a lot of readings and the cool thing was after one reading they would open up the circle for someone else in the area!!! it was truly a beautiful thing to witness and expereince!!! it even happened to the people right behind us!!!!!! it really was incredible!!! i have about 3 pages of notes like i did before..if you want to know more details let me know. i didnt know if you were tired of reading them...
the story that really touched me the most was towards the end about a couple who lost their 4 year old son. it was really touching, and John donated to them 4 tickets for a small session in Long Island, for this benefit auction in memory of their son, to help find a cure for other kids. i thought how sweet of that for john to do that!!! it was so beautiful.
i really learned a lot from this seminar. i was really proud of myself for driving there alone--i never drive on the parkway without a buddy, and suprisingly i didnt get lost!!!!! so i was happy that i became just a little more independent today. so see i learned something with that!!
ok well im tired, and i have to get up early for church and then my brother and i are going to the last seminar here in Toms River. im excited that this is my brother's first time seeing him. it is also the anniversary of our sister's death 6/13. so i feel its important that dan will come tomorrow, and in a way celebrate and remeber her even though we really didnt know her.
and everytime i see john... im still excited as the first time i ever saw him!!! i think more people from the board will be there tomorrow like jo ann and cathy so im looking forward to meeting them!!! again if there's anyone else just email me...
alrighty well i will report back tomorrow!!!!!!!! good night!!! god bless!! :-)

oh and to our Aussie members, he ended with talking about you guys, and telling his famous story about what a "spoof" is and also saying how you guys are so spiritual he just loved the energy and response down there. actually he said that story 2 days in a row, so you guys should pat yourselves on the back!!!

06-13-2004, 09:06 PM
Thanks Amy! Look forward to hearing more after you get caught up with schoolwork!
06-13-2004, 09:13 PM
OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!
What's funny is I had this feeling throughout this whole weekend I kept bumping into the spirit of my grandparents through scents, objects, and even a old fashioned wash bowl and pitcher. Here is the "other side" of this experience Amy has just relayed...
While Amy was at the JE weekend experience, her friend Megan was in California celebrating her second wedding anniversary with her husband....
That Friday as I am at light on my lunch break, thoughts of my grandparents come to mind, so I say Hi, and then I'm praying for blue roses for that night, to bring blue roses to Amy. I say this over and over, not realizing I'm focusing on it. Then I'm like, nah, don't get your hopes up.
So first thing I did when I got back from lunch was go to my computer and respond to Amy's email... I had this feeling, but I didn't want to jinx it, I almost said, see if any blue roses come through (I didn't save the email, so Amy, did I say anything about blue roses in that last email?) but anyway, I hit send with a HUGE thought of blue roses.
That night, my husband and I drove off for the weekend to Angels Camp to just relax.
Well on Saturday we went to a spa, which was really nice, but there was some time to kill between the pedicure and the message, so we went to the antique shops.
We were walking down the street and felt suddenly felt this pull into a shop, so I followed. I stepped in and this whoosh of air comes over me and it smells like my grandfather's basement. So I say Hi grandpa in my head... I walk around and there are things in there that used to even be in my grandfather's basement, like some of the toys and books I passed... so I was like, wow! thanks! What a great gift. We didn't see anything we wanted to buy so we continue down the street and again.
A block later the pull comes on, but this time it's even stronger, so I went into the shop and again, there was the whoosh again, except this time the scent smelled like my gra's flat in Dorchester. Which I haven't smelled since I was like 7 or 8 because she moved out there at that point in time and moved to an apartment in Milton. The scent this time was also accompanied by this warm and fuzzy feeling, which was beyond amazing. This grin spreads across my face as I say Hi Gra Gra and think of hugs to her as I walk around the store, relishing the smell. Again, I see objects that are familiar but of course this time they are from my gra's house, and I'm thinking this is just too cool.
My husband is ready to leave but I just want to linger in there a few more moments and then I feel this soft tug, and an internal thought "over here."
I follow it and nearly squealed from excitement - fortunately I caught it before it slipped out. I had stopped right in front of an old fashioned wash bowl and pitcher. On the side facing me, a blue rose.
Needless to say its now sitting in my guest room.
The trip was amazing, my grandparents were with my husband and I as we celebrated this occasion, and it was just so awesome tp feel them, and nope, wouldn't trade it for a million readings, heck not even one reading from Mr. JE himself.
Then I come home and check my email and to say I was speechless was an understatement.
Oh my gosh!!! (other words came to mind but I am censoring myself)
Amy, thank you so much, more than words can say....
In our lifetimes, everything happens for a reason, and I thank God for the reason you and I have crossed paths. Thank you for sharing that message...
God Bless and a very, very awed Megan
Amy, you gave such great descriptions and details of the seminars that I literally felt like I had been there with you. THANKS for your efforts in bringing this all to us! Glad to hear that John is healthy again and back to his "old self" ;)
All I can say is: WOW! :surprise:
06-14-2004, 08:43 AM
MrsJones, Wow, what a beautiful picture of a beautiful rose, thanks for sharing. :thumbsup:
06-14-2004, 08:54 AM
Thanks Amy i really enjoyed reading your notes...good luck with your exams and enjoy your trip.
Great notes Amy- you must be exhausted!!! How great that you got to go to three seminars in a row!! What a week-end you must of had!!
Thanks for sharing!
06-14-2004, 05:33 PM
(((Amy & Megan))) What wonderful posts, Amy (hope your exam grades are that wonderful!). I really enjoyed reading them--and Megan, what a gift, you are certainly being watched over :angel: Thanks girls :love:
06-14-2004, 10:38 PM
:love: just reading your post meg, makes me in awe of everything!!!!!!! i still cant get over that!!!!!!!! and here is what you wrote me in that letter, which i read when i came home friday night even that gave me chills!!!
"I'll be sending all the blue roses I can muster so that
the energy connects with your loved ones who will definitely be with you
tonight and hopefully give them the boost they need to make their presence
well there's no doubt in my mind that that was your grandparents getting the message thru for john so he could say it, and i could be the messenger!!! and like i said before he began that seminar saying how his favorite episode is the one about the messengers and it really doesnt suprise me at all that he would say something, and that would actually happen. that happened a lot this weekend, and he would always be like "the otherside has a wicked sense of human" even when he said wicked i always think of you and the musical! and you know, i was even thinking of giving up my ticket for my other neighbor that friday night, and i went because well i did really want to go, and many of my friends and my mom were like "amy your meant to be there." well i now know why i was meant to be there. it really is amazing how the otherside works and they really taught me that everything DOES happen for a reason! i am just so honored to pass on that message to you. and this wouldnt be the first time, nor the last that i have had to pass on messages and i really believe that it is a gift from god. it really was an incredible expereince for me, so thank you to your grandparents for doing what they did!! i still remember when he said "blue rose" i nearly fell out of my seat!! and my friend marion who was with me was like whats wrong! im like OMG MEGAN!!! it was just an awesomely incredible expereince.
you know megan when i go to Italy next week (god willing if my passport ever comes!) i am going to find you a blue rose and some how flatten and preserve it to send you it. hopefully i will be able to find it, but i definitely will keep my eyes out. luckily i know how to ask for it in italian lol i just wonder what city john was in when he saw the roses in the flower shop. i am going to a lot of cities, but ya never know.
Ok, now you are all probably waiting patiently for more details!!! ill talk about sunday's first and then go back to saturday's notes if i still have time, or else ill post saturday's tomorrow. :-)
well sunday i took my 14 yr old brother to the seminar since i have gotten him interested in john edward. i thought it would be a nice expereince for him. so we got up early and went to church and then out to breakfast and then we were off. i was really proud of myself again for driving on the parkway, something in which i hardly do since i never really go anywhere that uses the parkway, i always find alternative routes, but this time there was no way of getting out of it. but i was really glad that i did go. we got there early because i wanted to be sure i got a parking space. we were one of the first people there. my brother must have thought i was crazy for getting there an hour before the door opens, but the parking lot fills up quickly and i just wanted to avoid any traffic. so we got out and walked around and then we went back to my car and i turned on the AC and then i took a 30 minute nap to recharge lol i then brought some of my physics to study so i did that, and before you know it its time to go in. so we go in a little after 1 and get a seats and then we just sat and watched the episodes of CO that were playing.
john came out a little late. and he began telling a lot of stories. its funny, thru out the day im always thinking of what im going to post, and then i come here and im like geez what did he say!! ill be in my bed later and ill be like "ARGH i should have wrote that!" lol he came out and told stories. he talked about the compassionate friends one again, and how he was in the jazz room. he also talked about the molasses effect and how its important that he teaches about the process whenever he does a seminar so that everyone can go home with the knowledge that their loved ones are with them and that they dont need a medium to connect. he told more stories about his family, and how when his grandma passed, when he was in florida with him family at the house during the wake, his grandma was coming thru to him, but he didnt know who she was because she was coming thru as a younger woman. his family crowded around him and was listening and crying because they understood who she was. one of the last messages she said was that in the casket she wasnt wearing any underwear! john was like who is this and when his other aunts told him who it was, he immediately shut off because of the emotional connection. the next day his cousin politely asked the funeral director, that she had had a dream and her grandma wasnt wearing any underwear. the man reassured her that he dressed her himself and that she had her underwear. then her mother came and was a pushy woman and was like "my nephew is john edward and he is psychic and my mother came thru to him and told us she doesnt have any underwear, now let us see." it turns out that in john's mind and the funeral director and probably any male, underwear to them is simply underwear. to us woman, underwear includes bras. well his grandma wasnt wearing a bra!!! so she was right.. the audience roared at this!
another story he told was when he was late for a flight out of la guardia and this big woman came over to him and was like "arent you, you?" and jokingly he's like "and its you!" she was like "i thought you were full of crap" john jokingly was like i didnt know what to say but thank you. but then she completely suprised him and was like but it was because of the notes that got me back. john is like what? and then he realized the musical notes about prayer and the rosary. she was like that was the one thing that brought her, her faith back. it was really a touching story. and john also said when he saw her and was late, he was like "is she a distraction for me, not to get on that plane!" it was funny, he was like being psychic you think you woukd know those things!
another story off the top of my head that he told was about this reading in i think it was arizona. and he was reading this woman and he kept saying how there was going to be a big celebration next week and that they all would be there. the woman could not validate it and at this point john thought he spilled the beans about a suprise party. so he let that go and on he went with the readings. well a week later, he was doing a book signing in san diego and that woman came and told him "thank you" she told him how he read her the week before, and he was like oh so how did you like that suprise party!? she was like there was no suprise party. it turns out her son was murdered, and that celebration was him meeting everyone else when he got to the otherside. john was stunned. he couldnt believe how calm this woman was. she said she had gone that week hoping to connect with her daughter who passed. she said the only thing that had gotten her thru that long horrible week, was the knowing that her son was safe and with he family on the otherside. john was amazed by this woman, and was suprised she didnt ask any questions any parent would be wondering, like why him, and why couldnt you have predicted that. whatever the woman's response was, john was so amazed, he truly learned from this woman and realized that this woman was more spiritually advanced than him. it was an incredible moment and it was incredible to hear him tell this story.
another story he told about when he was in wisconsin, and how it was like a psychic hostage because he kept getting that someone was killed by a chainsaw. he was like you would think if someone you knew was killed that way, you would recognize it. so the person wasnt letting up and john literally walked off the stage into the section to try and figure out who it was. no one responded. when he finally went back on stage, 10 min later a woman goes "OMG!" could it have been a step-brother?????? john was like "i was literally speechless". he was like "ya think?!!" he was like im not going back there again!
he also asked the audience if they like it when he gets in peoples faces. many people raised there hands. he's like "you sick sick sick people!" he's like sandra thinks im mean! he was funny.
oh and another story he told was when justin was born, how when he was in the delivery room he was expecting his whole family to be there and sandra could tell that he was not focusing, and she was like come on and witness the birth of our child and john was really expecting that he would at least find a white feather or something. but nothing. so he then helped with the birth of his child. it wasnt til after the birth, did he get his signs. a conversation with a nurse, he heard every name of all the family members he would have wanted to connect with. he then knew that they were there. even when talking to that nurse, she was like what a nice little prince you have there, i bet if it was a girl you would have had another Princess in your life. (recall that john's mom had a nickname of princess, so that was a big validation. he also said there was no way that woman could have known) the point of that story was saying how we have to live our lives here, in the present, and not be worried and constantly in the otherside. we have to continue to live our life and not be concerned if our loved ones are always with us, because they want us to live our own lives. yes our loved ones will always be with us, but they want us to get the most out of life like they did. i thought that was a powerful story, and extremely true. we mustn't forget that we are still here on the living side.
i think someone asked him a question like what is heaven like or something like that. he said he once had a dream and his mother came to him and showed him a quick vision of what the otherside is like. he said it was the most beautiful thing he ever saw and he will never forget it. he said the thing he remembers most was the colors green and blue, but it wasnt like any blue or green that he saw here, those colors are in the most purest forms.
i thought it was an amazing seminar like always. when i was waiting online for the bathroom, and even before that when i was exiting in the big sea of people i was listening to the conversations around me, and the majority of the people were dissappointed that they didnt get a reading. in some ways im thinking, wow did they not listen to a word of what this man was saying for the past 2 1/2 hours!!!!!! i just couldnt believe how in the beginning he stressed so much and taught about the dissappointed factor and the molasses effect and how no not everyone will get a reading, but he hopes that you take away the understandment and knowledge that your loved ones ARE Still with you. in fact that you dont even need a medium to connect, that you can do it on your own! i felt sad for them because they really just missed the whole point of the seminar. i think that that is the case for many people who this was their first time seeing him. you think that they could be appreciative for the messages that he did give for the families that were read and at least be happy in for them. i just will pray for all those people that they will find healing and come to the realization that they can connect on their own. many times they are looking for the big sign and missing out on life, because they are searching for something and missing out on the little things. sometimes you have to stop and just smell the roses because life is too short.
after witnessing him connect with people, and watching the healing take place it has made me even more want to get busy with my own psychic development. i havent had time over the past few months to get to work on this, but now that school is ending thursday i intend for me to get back to what's important and start working with his CD's. i want to help people just like he was helped me, just like pay it forward. he truly has made a huge difference in my life, and im only 17 and i truly will always respect and admire him for changing my life. i hope i can help other people just like he was helped me.
ok well tomorrow i will post the details about the readings since i wrote that stuff down and didnt write down those stories! i wanted to post them before i forgot! hope you enjoyed them. have a wonderful day and god bless!!
to be continued.....

Still wowed. Thanks again Amy for sharing your experiences from your amazing JE weekend.
There is one other detail I figured I'd put in as it didn't occur to me til I was going through my receipts, the name of the shop where I got the pitcher and bowl with the blue rose, was Little Orphan Annie. The significance is that is the shop where I felt my Gra, but here's the twist, I played Annie and dedicated that show to my Gra who I knew was watching from Heaven...
Thank you for sharing your experiences and stories, I totally cracked up with a "Wicked sense of Human" rofl
That's a good one!!
I wish I could remember the name of the city where he found the blue roses in the shop. Thanks for filling in the gaps!
Amy, you are so sweet, awe shucks, just go and have a wonderful time in Italy!
God's speed and blessing to you! :musicnote
