View Full Version : Review of KC seminar
10-06-2001, 10:38 PM
Hi there- Let me first say that I am new to the board, so I hope I dont do anything wrong...
I felt the need to give a review of Johns seminar here in Kansas City, several hours ago....
When we got there, people were already lined up for a long ways and we stood in line for about an hour and a half.... When we got in the room, I was a bit surprised at the set up... It was just a little stage with a podium and rows of chairs lined up, about 15 rows deep, but at least 60 seats across... Now I wasnt expecting to have the CO set, but I thought it might be a little more casual...like maybe a circle, or a half circle, or even bleacher type of raised seats... None the less, we got some decent seats, off center, and a couple rows from the back....
Now, when John came out, I was a bit surprised-- He had a couple of suited guys, one in front of him, and one behind him... Hmmm, bodygaurds??? Now I understand where he could get 'mobbed' and certain people get a little freaked out, ...but bodygaurds?? (Its not like we're all 14 year old girls, and he's a Backstreet Boy?!) He went onstage to a standing O, which I thought was very cool.... It was good to see John, after only seeing the show....he looks the same exact way!
He first talked about some general things, including the mayhem in lower Manhattan, and shared some stories of late... He then went on to some Q and A, with some great questions and great answers... About 30-35 minutes in, he was right in the middle of answering this ladies question and out of nowhere he says- Are you Janet? Whos the Janet?....... You know it- he go into a groove... He read that lady and 1 or 2 other people right around her and when he finished, he said, 'Look, if you guys have to hit the bathroom or something, go ahead, because I dont think I'm going to take a break'... The crowd cheered... (Ended up being just under 2 hours of readings....very cool)
Now, as far as the readings, there were some that were very good and some that had a little bit of validation problems....
Some energys came thru loud and clear, and others were a bit muddled.... Of course I cant remember all of them, but I'm sure I will over the next days.... One funny one was this lady who lived in Alaska, and Johns response, being very honest was, "Wow, how cool is that?'... We all busted up and John was bent over, laughing! ('Cool', get it?)
Now, people were moving around a bunch, going to the bathroom, stepping outside, etc... I went with my mom, and one of her best friends/friend of the family, whos name is Tommie... Just like my mom did a few minutes earlier, Tommie gets up and goes to the bathroom... While shes in there, he relates a story about once having to drag some one out of the restroom, because he was connecting for her, and John says to one of his helpers, Hey Lisa, I think you need to go into the restroom... All us couldnt believe it and were laughin... Right then, my mom tells me that Tommie is in there... John gives the first info hes got and the helper was IN there asking if anybody could validate this... After a second try, our friend said yes, and wouldnt you know it, she got connected while in the toilet room!! Very funny.......... My mom and I just about flipped out!! He was trying to validate some other info, and all of a sudden he says, Who'd you come with today? My mom and I looked at each other... I thought to myself, Oh my god, he's going to connect for us!!
(Which by the way, never happened...much to my dismay) Tommie came back down to the seat and the reading went on for about 10 minutes.... What wasn't too good, was that this reading was one of the more fuzzy, hard to validate ones... There were 3 or 4 things that could be validated, but many more that were not... This could be one of those, where I get a call from my mom telling me about everything being realized, days later...we'll see...
I thought that I would get very overcome if I ever got a reading or someone close to me, but I must say that I wasn't.......
John did some more for awhile longer, then ended the afternoon with a few more questions.... Said some final words and was escorted out the door, to another standing ovation....
Now, I will say the event was a thumbs up... Like everyone that ever goes to ANY seminar of Johns, would love to get, (and some expecting) to have an incredible, soul and life changing, out of body, evolutionary expierence (I will admit, I guess I'm in that boat as well), but I came out feeling OK, but a bit mild.... It was great to see John, and great to see our friend get a reading with a funny intro, and just good to see a room full of people that just want to feel some peace and closure.... In other words I'm glad to have been in a room with some others interested in growing and changing themselves, not only in general, but with connecting with loved souls (Even though it was apparant that some of the people were a bit primitive in their wants, and who don't quite get the full picture and just wanted to get a small band-aid, on their much bigger wounds).........
Just for the record, I will say that my belief of John, and in the subject matter in general, is pretty high but with a small amount of natural human skepticism..... The larger part grew today........
I will end this by saying again that the event and the afternoon were a thumbs up, and would suggest that if you have the chance, without question, go!! It's time well spent...........
Thanks alot, and I sure would like to hear some other KC reviews
10-06-2001, 10:50 PM
Hi Steeve! great that you posted the review. I posted some under the seminar thread. we had a 3 1/2 trip home from KC so I was late getting on here to do that. I took notes and will post more later, jump in with any rememberances you have. "Cool!" as John says, that your friend was read. I am so excited to think I have a way to find out if she can validate everything. it really did seem the reading was not for her or for someone removed from her that she didn't really know all about. however, a woman sitting in our section, across the room and by the door, insisted she could validate everything that was told to Tommie as being for her own family. now, many people say that but--this woman said her daughter (who is a twin) was also in the bathroom at that time and she has an aunt Gladys. John asked for a "Gertrude" or a hard G sound, like "Gertrude or Gladys.
all in all, it was good, wasn't it? most of the readings had more validations than Tommies, she didn't seem to really get her own family come through, was she disappointed by that?
it's late so I will post more later,
10-06-2001, 10:56 PM
oh, I see I posted under the Columbus seminar heading, as NayNay was asking for info of seminars! here's what I said about Kansas City--
today was the Kansas City seminar, and John was in fine form! most of the time was taken up with readings. during the time he did talk at first he said--
"No, I did not know the September 11 attack would take place." said if he had he wouldn't have insisted that Sandra fly out of JFK airport the morning of the 11th. he said he has a renewed energy that what he is supposed to be doing is to teach others that they can communicate with their family, that they don't need him. he said when he was asked to do Larry King Live he didn't want to go to California and asked if he could do it by satellite. they said no, Larry wanted him there and he could come Sept. 10 or Sept. 12. he said okay, he would go Sept. 10 because "if I go the 12th, you'll bump me." he just thought something else would come up and he wouldn't be on that day.
he said the first time someone from the attack "came through" was last week when doing a show (taping, I presume) and a woman dominated the session then at the end she mentioned that a fireman, the son of a neighbor, was there.
I'll type more up later! but that's that was said about New York.
10-06-2001, 10:58 PM
I am so glad you had a geat time! Just an FYI about the body guards. It is a venue thing. In some seminars there are no "bodyguards" but in others there are. I think that it has to do with security in the actual place of the event. For example, in Cincinatti ..... no guards. John was all over the place. In Indy he had guards. I don't believe they are "members" of John's group, just something the hall/hotel/convention center supply.
We'll see ...... tomorrow is Columbus!
Waving hello from Columbus, Ohio ..... hope you didn't wear out John! And I am going to make sure I hit the restroom BEFORE the seminar ...... just in case! :D
10-07-2001, 12:34 AM
:D Hi all. I too just got home from a fantastic day at the K.C seminar.
We met a lot of great people and of course, John was awesome as usual. I'm sure that this is just the beginning of many more trips for me to any and all chances to see him again.
He has such a wonderful personality. So funny too!! I was cracking up when Tommie comes out of the restroom and he precedes to tell her that there is a " P " coming up around her!!! Everyone was laughing and then he realizes what he said and really started laughing and was blushing big time!!
Also when he was telling about coming home from L. A. , on his way to pick up Sandra, he said she asked him if he was coming on a white horse and he told her, No a blue mini van!!
Anyway, It was a day I will remember for ever. I did'nt get a reading, but that was o.k. I was happy for the people who were suppose to.
John said the best thing we can do for all the people affected by the events of 9-11-01 is send up our prayers. They will help not only the people here but all that have crossed over.
Lord hear our PRAYERS!!!
10-07-2001, 07:11 AM
Thanks for the great write-ups. For those of us who can't make these seminars this is the next best thing - until another JE book of course....
About the bodyguards, I'm surprised he DOESN'T have them on payroll yet. It's a sad reality of today's world that there are stalkers and other malcontents that make such actions necessary. However, even good people and fans like us could be a problem if there were too many of us or we mobbed him. I guess I rather like the idea of him having some sort of security around him, but I feel sorry for JE that the price of fame is losing some of his freedom (if that is the right word to use).
10-07-2001, 08:11 AM
Just a special thank-you Steer,Donna and Kaydy for sharing your trip with us....I just love the stories and hope more of our John Edward Family will tell us about there trip......
Yes you do meet great people and the energy is just great.....
Ann we will be waiting to here about your trip in Coumbus,Ohio....So don't forget to post tonight....
May God and the Angel's watch over you today....
Love, Bobbie ****^j^****

Thanks for posting about the seminar. You know, I have this bathroom thing that whenever I'm someplace like you were, the more I hope I don't have to go to the bathroom, the more I do! At least now if I ever get to a seminar or gallery reading, I know it won't matter. If the reading is for me, HE WILL FIND ME!
I can understand you not being bowled over by the seminar. I think it's kind of like going to a movie everybody said was absolutely great, you have to see it. Once you're there, you're thinking, "this isn't THAT great." Expectations, I guess. Totally human and impossible to control. I mean, who wouldn't go to a seminar with John Edward and have high expectations, even though out loud you're saying, no I don't have any expectations. I mean, come on, it's John Edward!
It's cool that a couple people went to the same seminar so you can compare notes. Thanks to all for posting. I think this is the closest I'll ever get to John. I tried yesterday to dial the number and was so nervous. How stupid is that! I realize it's not like he's going to answer the phone. Never did get through anyway. So I plan to live vicariously through all of you lucky ones.
10-07-2001, 08:51 AM
Hi Tanner--the seminar turned out to be mostly readings so it was much like what you see on Crossing Over. and you get a better view of John on tv! so enjoy those shows just like you re there!
and thanks, all you appreciative people! I will post a little more from my notes. as I mentioned, John said Sept. 11 gave him a renewed type of energy about his work. he said sometimes it had become routine, like any job. he said even though he had seen the news of New York when he got home and actually saw the skyline he can't describe the feeling. but it has revitalized and recharged him. and again, he says you don't me or anyone else to communicate. he said Sept. 5 was the 12th year anniversary of his mother's birthday of crossing over.
he talked about his first reading from Linda Clar. and his friend Shelly Peck. he used to refer to Shelly as "the greeting committee" as she seemed to read people who had passed very recently. when she died he couldn't understand how the universe would take such a light reader from here. he said "on Sept. 11 I realized why." now she's needed on the other side to be the greeting committee there.
10-07-2001, 10:23 AM
I was at the Kansas City seminar yesterday as well. My friends and I got there at 8:50 am and waited in line until the doors opened around 12:30 or so. The other people waiting in line with us were really great. It made the wait alot of fun. :)
My friends and I were able to get seats right on the first row right in front of the stage. It was really great! :) John was so funny. My friends and I didn't get read, but we had a wonderful time.
10-07-2001, 12:03 PM
Personally, I want John surrounded by bodyguards.
10-07-2001, 05:27 PM
>Also when he was telling about coming home from L. A. , on his way to pick up Sandra, he said she asked him if he was >coming on a white horse and he told her, No a blue mini van!!
That's so cute. So he was in LA for LKL? When did he fly home, did he say?
10-07-2001, 05:31 PM
Hi Ann. other older posts to the group tell how John drove home. last night he said he decided he was not going to fly so he rented the mini-van. he didn't say if anyone was with him. he drove to Cincinnati, Ohio, where Sandra was. her plane was in the air when the towers were hit and they had to land at the nearest airport. she said she was there for 4 days.
10-07-2001, 05:38 PM
Thanks for telling me. I didn't find this board until last week. I wish I had found it earlier, I worried about John and Sandra and their friends and family for two weeks, but you guys were lucky enough to find out almost right away that they were safe.
10-07-2001, 06:00 PM
Thanks everyone for posting your seminar experiences. If anyone has read my introduction you know that I take care of my husband at home. He was diagnosed with Early Alzheimer's at 44, 10 years ago. Well, people ask me all the time what I would do with a day off. I always say I don't know, but deep down what I would love to do is spend the day at a seminar of John's. By reading your descriptive posts you have allowed me to do just that. Thank you so much.
10-07-2001, 06:29 PM
I always try to read everyones introductions. I'm sorry I must
have missed yours.
What a difficult position you are in. Yet it comes through so clear
that what you do everyday is done selflessly, lovingly, and without resentment.
That makes you very special in my book. If it is true that everything happens for a reason, I'm sure you have pondered
this situation a great deal.
Though it is not my business, I feel compelled to say that I wish
you could find a way to have a day or evening just for you. You
deserve it. Perhaps some day a kind person will give you a little
of that time. I suspect your husband would wish it for you as well.
I'm glad that you find comfort in John. I was lucky enough to
see him last Spring, and it is difficult to describe the special quality
he brings into a room. But, I must say, people here have been doing a good job at helping us share their experiences so that we
can vicariously enjoy the different seminars.
With great admiration,
At the Houston Seminar last November 2000, John was all over the room, no security in sight.
At the New Orleans seminar three days later, security was tight. Although John did move about, they followed him around and stayed within a few feet of him.
At the Austin seminar, May 2001, there was some security around the raised platform, but when John moved about the room, I didn't notice any security people following him.
I must agree that it may depend on the venue. However, in light of the current climate, it may be that this will now be standard practice. It's a shame it has come to that, but whatever it takes to keep John safe is okay by me. I'm sure every friend of JE feels the same.
10-07-2001, 07:45 PM
Well, just wanted to post an update---
After working for a few hours this morning, I went over to my moms to watch the football game, and while I was there, she passed on some very cool news....
Our friend Tommie called her first thing this morning, and said that everything that she could remember from the seminar,
WAS validated!! She then sat down and wrote a several page note to John (or at least his office) to explain everything, and to give thanks....
Lets hear about Columbus!!!
10-07-2001, 08:53 PM
Hey, glad to hear that about the Tommie/Gertrude reading! it went on and on, it seemed, lol!
I taped Kansas City channel 5 news last night so we could see the segment on John Edward. we saw them there yesterday. they showed just a short thing, though. one was at the doors of the room after it was full of people, and I see myself there! just my head but it's me or someone who looks like me, lol! we were sitting where we could look out the door and even though I'm looking that way I didn't see the cameraman. there's a man walking by at that time so I can't see who is next to me, is supposed to be my husband!
In the very brief clip of an interview they did with John, he has a heavy "5 o'clock shadow." so I wonder whether he shaved after that, before the seminar, or if that is normal and you don't see it on crossing over due to the makeup they make him wear.
I've typed up some more so here it comes-------
10-07-2001, 09:11 PM
After John made a few remarks he tried to have a question and answer segment but he didn't get far. he seemed to choose the person to call on from those who had their hands up or by indicating one of his staff members who were holding a microphone by someone. since the seating was on a flat floor I couldn't see most of the people he was talking to. he took a question or two. the next woman seemed to be young, like 20 so something, by her voice but I can't say for sure, maybe someone can post with that information. she said her grandmother had passed on and her two uncles had lived with her grandmother. she was desperate for a sign from the grandmother, it seems, missing her terribly. she went outside, taking care of the g-mother's dogs, and heard bells. John said "what kind of bells?" she said church bells. he said how did that make her feel when she heard them. good. then that was the symbol for her, something for her to identify with, he said. then he couldn't help himself, here came Grandma through! John's words are in caps, not necessary the exact quote, this is from my notes. the "quote" marks are the person's replies who was being read. first he asked if the two uncles had passed. "no." there was some discussion then--
SHE HAS A YOUNGER MALE WITH HER.
on this the woman was near tears so it was apparent this was so important to her and involved more than the grandmother's passing.
RUTH OR R. SHE HAS TWO GRANDSONS OR YOUNGER MALES THERE, THAT'S WHY I THOUGHT THEY WERE YOUR UNCLES, HER SONS.
"Robert. she does have two grandsons there."
this was one of the readings that obviously mean a lot to the person being read so that you are glad they got a reading.
next, I don't remember if he was talking to the same woman but he said:
SOMEONE WAS ASPHYXIATED. NO, DROWNED OR HANGED. SOMEONE AROUND YOU.
"doesn't come to mind"
"over here" someone else called out.
NO, IT'S HERE. THIS WOMAN STANDING OR IN THIS AREA..."
"my hair dresser's brother and then his dad hung themselves." (I couldn't see who said this.)
THIS IS MORE THAN JUST A HAIR DRESSER, LIKE A FRIEND? "yes". YOU SAW THEM RECENTLY?
"yes. the little boy was an accident, he hung himself in a tree. on the anniversary of his death, his dad hung himself."
THEY'RE CALLING OUT TO GRANDMA BILLIE, IS SHE IN BAD HEALTH? TELL THE MOM OF THE HANGED BOY THEY CAME THROUGH.
I WASN'T READY TO DO THIS YET, John said. but again, this message should be of some comfort to the woman it was for, even though she wasn't at the seminar.
he then talked to a woman (whether the same woman I don't know) asking about a dog, she had one, and he thought the dog had a puppy that had passed over. the woman said no, the dog had only had one puppy. living, the last she knew, in St. Louis. YOU HAD BETTER CHECK ON THAT, John said. he said there was a younger female who had crossed over and it was like the puppy, the mother had lost the child. the woman said yes there was a child who had died in April.
to someone else I couldn't see he said STOP WITH CIGARETTES. ARE YOU A SMOKER? "yes". DO YOU HAVE KIDS? "no." DO YOU HAVE A DOG? "yes." THEN STOP FOR YOUR DOG.
this gave me lol as when we went in to the hotel there were gals on the sidewalk outside, smoking. I said to my husband, they'd better watch out as I've heard John tell people to stop smoking!
John then said we won't have a break, we'll start now. THANK THAT WOMAN'S GRANDMOTHER FOR DOING IT. he said there's a restroom in this room. DON'T WORRY, I WILL FIND YOU! he said that happened in Seattle and in Denver. he said he was hearing his symbol for George, the George of the Jungle song. whoever he directed it at said no and I don't have anything else written about that.
in another section closer to him than where this all started he asked for the Alaska person. no one seemed to answer at first--why is that, anyway?? then woman did and he said
YOU'RE FROM ALASKA? "yes." HOW COOL IS THAT! "very cold." a pause then he laughed, I JUST GOT THAT! he was a little slow on the update, lol! he said there was a female passed over for the person with the Alaska person. "grandmother." CORA. "my name is Kara." MOM. "mother-in-law." this is all I have on this. he talked about a flag, and how it used to be his symbol for something like flag day but things have changed now with all the flag symbols.
he said he saw a house with blue around the windows, finally someone claimed it. yes, it did have blue round the windows, and something about it being sold. John asked if there was a tall thing behind it, no, but there was a tree behind it. A TALL TREE? yes, a very tall oak tree, 400 years old and it had been cut down. they couldn't understand why the new owners had it cut down. John asked if they had gone into the tree. yes, they had climbed it and the father had built something there.
then on to another house, I think he was still in the same area. IT HAS THREE LEVELS? "it has two stories." BUT IT HAS THREE LEVELS? "yes." IS THERE A BASEMENT? "yes." John said he saw a body in a basement! he seemed a little concerned to relay that type of information! why a body in the basement?, he wondered. the man said "my uncle is a mortician and they have the thing in his basement."
10-07-2001, 11:03 PM
JBannister: Thanks for the kind words. I too think everything happens for a reason. If I can find one good thing to say about this horrible disease hitting my husband at such a young age it is that I have 3 of the kindest, most patient, tolerant kids in the world. They have learned that in this "disposable" society, you don't get rid of people when they stop being productive. When people in town feel sorry for my "burden", I am sincerely confused. I feel I am blessed. I work ridiculous hours cleaning houses, care for other people's children before school, care for my husband, home and property and still do plenty of volunteer work. I am 83 lbs and get very little sleep. The only way it is possible that I have been able to do this is with a lot of very special blessings from above. God made a very good match here. He gave a man who was one of the special people in the world a family who was willing to care for him when he needed it. Then God gave us the tools to use to do so. You bet I feel blessed. Thanks again for your kindness. Just so happened to come on a day when, if I had extra money, I would buy a white flag and surrender ;)

Donna, I was especially impressed with the information on the girl in the boating accident. Quite a few people tried to claim it, but John kept saying "no" until he found who it was really for.
He was right on with the woman who had the little girl that was ill and passed long after the doctors said she would. The woman validated nearly everything he said (actually, I can't remember her not validating everything he said).
I was disappointed that my friends or I didn't get read, but I really didn't need to be read anyway. My mom was hoping my grandmother would come through and tell her that she wasn't upset with her for not being at the hospital when she passed, but I think that she realizes grandma isn't upset since mom has started watching John everyday now. She didn't believe in any of this until John came along.
10-08-2001, 11:00 AM
yes, that was something about the boating accident! that was in our area, the fellow John was reading (about being 3 in the family, did they all have the same father????) was on the end of our row, 6 seats from my husband. John asked him about the boating accident, or jet ski accident, and as you say several people would claim it. I didn't think it was for me but I knew of a young boy killed in a jet ski and boat accident about a year ago. I didn't know the family but knew someone whose sister did. I didn't want to have to hold my hand up to try to explain that so I was glad when he said it was a girl. isn't it kinda amazing that in one small section so many people knew of a boating accident?
the woman who cared for her daughter before she died: that was very touching. I couldn't see her at all but I could tell by her voice how she was feeling. and John said there were two children and she said yes. one was a miscarriage.
now that Steev has posted that the "bathroom lady" validated everything I would say John was right on target most of the time!
10-08-2001, 12:49 PM
John *does* have bodyguards traveling with him....I happened to be on his flight from KC to St. Louis right after the seminar. I assume that they then caught a flight to Columbus from there. I just about fell over when I saw they were on my flight. As much as I wanted to, I didn't approach him, mostly because he and the two bodyguards were putting out major "don't bother us" vibes. I also tried to catch his eye a few times, but he wasn't playing, which I can respect. The flight attendant even went up to first class to scope it out for me and came back saying, "He won't look at anyone. He's got his nose buried in a book." I had traveled from Utah to go to the seminar after winning a ticket on scifi.com and was feeling like maybe I'd been sent there for a reason. Oh well, it was a fabulous seminar anyway.
10-08-2001, 02:49 PM
The bathroom incident was just too funny! I laughed until tears came from my eyes. I did read on another post where she had validated everything he told her.
I'm not sure about the father of the three. The closest person that was read by me was the woman with the little girl that was ill for so long. I was in the front row (probably not the best place to be), and she was just a couple of rows behind me to the left a bit.
I raised my hand at the end to ask a question, but John answered it without my asking it, so I put my hand down. That's probably a good thing since I would have more than likely choked up and not been able to ask it since there were so many people in the room.:blush:
10-08-2001, 02:59 PM
I was wondering if John drove or flew after what he told us about driving across country. My husband had to fly to New Jersey yesterday for business. I wasn't too happy about it. He's flying home Friday and I wish he would drive back instead!:)
10-08-2001, 03:13 PM
steev,That thing about the body gaurds, in the past i would have thought that was going over board....but i was at the St.Louis seminar...we had excellent seats second row center stage...But well earend seats..we arrived 4 to five hours early got our spot in line about 30 people in front of us...blah blah blah...Here is my point as we were going to enter the room we had people juming over the seats trying to take cuts and so forth if it was not for my sisters very strong and very loud complaints to these peolpe we would have been trampled by these Older very nice looking ladies...so if they would do this to strangers...who knows how they would be if they could get up near JOhn....and i think some people have such a need to be read...that they will try anything.....
10-08-2001, 04:46 PM
Hi, me again!
Just wanted to see what you all think about my experience in
K.C. I have very bad arthritis in my knees and have been having alot of pain for about 5 years. I've been on medication to try and control it, but it does'nt help much. Usually mornings are pretty good, until I have to walk from the parking lot at work to my office, then my knees start swelling and get very stiff. Standing in one place, sitting too long with knees bent and climbing stairs is extremely painful.
Anyway, I was worried about how I was going to get through the ride to the seminar (3 HRS) and standing in line. We decided it would be a good idea to take our chances on good seats and not get there until 12:00 noon when the doors were suppose to open. we ended up getting in line about 11:20am after walking quite a ways( in my opinion) from the parking garage. We stood in line until approximately 12:30. Sat without getting up until 4:30, walked back to the parking garage and walked up 4 flights of stairs in the parking garage to get to our car. Drove 3 hours home, ALL with no pain in my knees.
I think it was all the positive energy floating around there that day. That was Saturday, today still no pain. Don't know what to think about this or if it will last,but it's pretty amazing none the less!!
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Would love to hear from you.

Wanted to extend another "Thank You" to everyone who posted about the seminar, their experience and the events that took place.
Thanks again, it is deeply appreciated, especially for those people who could not make a seminar or who may not ever be able to attend one. I am sure these post make them feel like they were there.
Thanks for sharing! Cyndy

okay, here's another tidbit. John said, The man without a leg, is that your uncle? "that's my dad." I thought it was an uncle. A man in your family got in a lot of trouble on the other side by beating up an animal. "a dog." Your Dad seems mean. "he's a minister." But he's mean. "yes."
John let it be known we should be careful how we treat animals!

during one of the brief question times a woman asked if Shelly Peck, a medium who was John's friend, had ever contacted him, after she died. NOT ONCE. he said. I think the woman said she had a reading from Shelly--anyone remember? anyway, she said "I think Shelly came to me." she said she saw her high school picture when Shelly wore glasses and she said to say "the glasses still don't fit." she thought this was a message she was to give John. it didn't seem to have any meaning for him. he asked DO YOU KNOW A JOHN? the woman said no. he said the message was probably for her but he'd think about it. he said he didn't know what Shelly looked like in high school.
another time he said people write in that they dream about him. he said their relatives "put" him in dreams, I guess so the person will realize this is a message from those crossed over.

I remember what you are talking about regarding Shelly Peck. :)
I also remember the reading about the mean, minister father and the dog. Boy, I came right home and made sure all of our animals were happy, comfy and fed! :D

I was also there in Kansas City after taking the 6:59 flight in from New York City. I was also quite surprised that upon my arrival, people had already been on line for several hours... After checking into the room, we joined the line already formed, to patiently wait our turn to enter seminar. Being from New York City, I was not surprised to see John surrounded by Body Guards; some personal and some I am sure provided by the hotel for insurance purposes. Still waiting for the seminar to start at 1:15 Kansas City time (which is 2:15 New York City Time), I realized that it was the first Saturday of the month and tried to get gallery tickets for Crossing Over, I pulled out my cell phone, where I have the ticket number PROGRAMMED, and hit re-dial about 37 times.... but the line was always busy.
I thank everyone for posting their experiences. It really brought me back and let me re-live the afternoon. I must say that some of the readings were focused and directly hitting the target while others were a struggle for John to get the messages through and a struggle for people to validate. This is really an example of... if you are going to a seminar or a gallery.... BE PREPARED... Bring history of family and friends and take notes. More than likely everything will fall into place after the reading.
I truly believe that those who are supposed to get a message, DO get a message. Although I have many friends and family members on the other side, I was not dissapointed that I did not get a reading. I was lucky enough to take my entire family to see John at Journey to the Soul at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in April and, once again, it is always a pleasure to wittness John's elevated physic ability.
Thank you all for posting your messages. As this is my very first post, well, it kinda feels like home.

Wow Theresa, that's great that you came to KC to see John! I hope you had a wonderful time while you were here!
I talked with a friend (Kathy) of mine today that went to the seminar last saturday. She said she really enjoyed it. But she saw another friend of hers while she was waiting in line and didn't have the chance to talk to her since she was in a different spot in line. Anyway, Kathy got a seat and asked the person next to her to save it while she went to the ladies room. When she got back from the ladies room her friend was sitting in the chair next to her chair and she didn't even know that Kathy was going to the seminar and didn't see her before she came back from the ladies room and sat down next to her!
