Tonights seminar was wonderful! John was introduced by his high school drama teacher, who spoke about having John participate in the chorus of his musical. He also mentioned going to John's home for a private reading a few years ago. He was blown away by John knowing about his "hobby" of visiting the burial places of famous people. When John began he talked about growing up in Glen Cove and mentioned several local hang- outs. He pointed to his aunt and cousin who were in the audience and told the story of finding his aunt, late at night, sitting in the hall closet drinking scotch for a toothache. (that was a story he had recently told on C.O.) He talked about his work, about his mom, and how it took 9 years to get the three symbols that they had discussed before she passed. John also said he was on hiatus until June. And that there was a book coming out next month called The Afterlife Experience that explains the science of what he and others like him do. John also talked about the 9/11 show disaster. He said that show never happened, nor would he ever do a theme show. He did say that he has worked with several families who lost loved ones on 9/11 and that he insisted on two things. That the readings take place in their home(to avoid media and publicity) and that they meet with grief counselors before they met with him. You have to love this guy! He has a heart of gold and oozes integrity!
There was no intermission, nor was there meditation. He answered several questions and then went right into readings. The first reading was like pulling teeth and John was really digging in ("yes, you do have an Uncle Jack"). The second reading was struggle as well. The third reading was very moving. It was from a young man who died at the WTC . John said "he's telling me there were two passings in this family". The reading was for a woman and her mother in law who were seated just a few chairs down from me. John told her that she had heard from her husband that day- and she said yes, that he had called her and told her he was going to try and find his father who worked on a different floor. Both of them crossed that day. He said her husband was thanking her for bringing something to ground zero. She couldn't think of what that was, but later remembered that she had brought roses to the site . There was another reading for a WTC family from a police officer and a fireman, brothers. It was a very emotional reading.
There were several more readings but it is way late, and I need to get up for work tomorrow.

I love reading about John's appearances because he tends to share so much of himself with his audiences and I wonder if they really reallize that.
If any of you can remember the comments he made about his Mother it would be good to hear them. This wonderful woman had quite a load to carry from what I have read in JE's books.
Can't wait to hear about the whole evening.

Hi Everyone -
What a night. My cousin & I made it to John Edward in record time and the place was packed - at least 300 people in the orchestra & balcony. Bodyguards/family members stayed on the steps to the stage; police officers at the exit/stage door. Very intimidating but I assume necessary. After his former teacher (from 21 years ago) introduced him, John came out & did a lecture on what he does & why. He explained the process and then did a quick Question & Answer period. I made my cousin (begged her is a better word) raise her hand to ask if he does any local NY workshops for people interested in his field of work, but she did not get picked. Someone with a similar question was picked and he told her to keep a journal, like a dream journal, of experiences. The people who DID get read HAD to be read; it was obvious when several people were those who lost husbands, sons, brothers and brothers-in-law at the WTC tragedy. I felt my deceased ones so strongly around us from the afternoon onward that I knew we did not need to be read - they were so happily above us hanging out the whole time.
One thing that I found so amazing was I was able to see John's aura - it was very white, transparent but a bright white, and it was about 6" thick around his entire body - I kept nudging Cindy saying "Look at his aura! Can you see his aura?" and she must have thought I was being batty, but I just assumed she could see it as easily as I saw it. I felt like I had to keep saying it: "Watch when he moves, see when he stands still - Look! there it is! See it? That is incredible!" The entire time I watched him I was amazed at the size of his aura!
He read people for a very long time and looked pretty worn out at the end. I felt bad - he must have so many people demanding or begging for connections, and we observed "bodyguards" around him. He had his family there - aunts, cousins, etc. He seemed nervous being there at first, then cracked some funny one liners and BANG! He read with such instant speed and power it was truly baffling. His accuracy was right on. One woman who lost her husband and father-in-law at WTC was asked who Bailey was. She said it was their dog. John said "You spoke to the dog? You had a conversation with the dog after this happened?" She said yes. He said "When you were talking to your dog your husband came through in the dog. You hoped he did and he wants you to know it was him you were talking to." To another woman who lost her husband at WTC (firefighter) whose remains are still lost, he asked her why she laid clothes out for her husband when there was no body found. She explained that the Fire Department asked for one of his shirts and she picked one out to be framed & hung in the department. To someone else he asked "Where is the place outside that has a crooked barbecue - like it's leaning far to one side?" It wound up being the backyard of someone's house. To someone who lost a husband and baby, he told the woman "Your husband wants me to tell you he is with the baby son and he is rocking him. He wants you to know that you take care of the son you have here and he is taking care of your other son there." He rambled on and on and pointed out specific people, not just areas of the room. He was pulled from the back left floor to the upper right balcony, straight below to the floor, yada yada yada. He was so fast it was dizzying.
I left feeling so gratified. I feel this person is truly gifted and has such amazing abilities to heal people and bring them closure when necessary. To have seen him in the place he went to middle school was cool too. I left feeling very satisfied. We learned a lot tonight, and it is going to take some time to sink in entirely.
Thank you Alevia, for that wonderful account. We all want to be at every seminar, but because nice people like you, and others, take the time to write their experiences here, we can share in some way.
I'm so comforted when I hear about readings from 9/11.
This must have been special for John, because it was his own neighborhood. It shatters the bible verse that has become a common axiom, "A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household"

Thank you Lori!! Thank you for taking the time to post! It is a nice feeling when you can take something away with you....and you did :)
02-14-2002, 12:38 PM
Every time I read an account of one of John's seminars I catch myself visualizing him doing what he does best - interacting with people that need him most. He is amazing to watch and listen to. Thank you so much. I really enjoy reading what others experience - makes me feel like I am right there. I can even see what the room looks like from what others post - neat.
We will all get a treat over the next little while with all the seminars coming us - what a treat.
One very happy Irishrose
I really enjoyed your post Lori. To me, watching John in person and on television, is being an eye witness to miracles happening.
02-14-2002, 12:51 PM
Thank you Mnt2be!!!! Your post is deeply appreciated!!! Love reading those seminar posts. Thanks for sharing yours..:)
02-14-2002, 01:03 PM
It is true - to be witness to what he does and how he heals is incredible. Thank you all for your comments. Every one of us on this website has been truly touched and blessed by him, regardless of how.
02-14-2002, 01:46 PM
No thanks are necessary, it was my pleasure. Do you think my post should be moved to the other thread?
02-14-2002, 02:19 PM
Thanks for the post Lori! It's not so dissapointing missing out when I know I've got Friends here to fill me in. :)
02-14-2002, 02:23 PM
No, why? - seems fine here :)
It's under the "Seminar" folder in an appropriate titled thread- (Tonight's Seminar). But if it would please you more, I can merge them......no biggy, let me know.
Thanka again Mnt2be!

IT was a very amazing nite! One observation I can make is that these people werent your Cossing over folks. Sitting in the packed VERY HOT Sweaty room , it felt more like a school assembly then the energy I felt when going to New Haven. Poor John even commented
"I Feel Like A Dentist ..I am Pulling Info out off all of you like a Dentist pulls teeth....Slow and painful!"
At one point a lady was almost defiant said
"I dont have a second bother.. I only have one! I cant make up a brother!"
John said...."Imagine how I feel ..I am sweating my ass off here trying to tell that YES YOU DO!"
It took that one woman, bless her heart, 20 minutes to get that a brother fiqure could be a friend of her late husbands!
There were many readings that nite like that. John stuck with what he was getting and of course at the end the other side was right.
I sat in an area where 6 people got readings! Its like the other side glazed right over me. I know I wasnt meant to get read that night. That is because they lost loved ones on 9/11
It was so emotional to sit next to these two ladies who lost their Husbands on that day.
I got the chills when John recounted his acting days as a student on that very stage and that his mom sat in the very seats we did. He cousin RO was in the Audience and his FAMOUS AUNT who went into the Closet at night when John was living with his Grandma...You know the one that was DRINKING Booze to get rid of the toothache. She was there too.
He made many references to home that folks in Glen Cove would understand. IT truely felt like Middle School assembly.
I heard from the two students sitting next to me that the first 5 rows were reserved for teachers and students got the "Run off seats" Although the room only sat 1000 seats so everyone has a great view.
John was wearing Jeans and what looked to be that famous white sweater he wears in his promo shots with a leather jacket. He took that Jacket off when he began readings.
He did not lead us in a Mediatation which was strange. I thought he would ...but he knows what is best
I felt he was connecting with me at one point but he felt that he was to the right of me....he was shooing off "RELATIVE STEALERS" very close to me so I did not raise my hand...
Here is what he said
It was the first person to come through and no one was able to claim this one
A j-a name.....May connection ....Someone dies of a blood disease to the side a contemporary, a new england feel connected to an AN name
My sister JAnine's best friend JAnet died in May from Leukemia I am from NEW ENGLAND and my name is ANgelina....
MAN! I wanted to say THAT IS ME...but...he knows best!
It did make me talk to her on the way home ( I had a 3 hour drive). I said ..if that was you....THANKS!
I wanted to say Hi to Carol so bad....but It was packed in tightly and she was this Tan colored blur all night running around like a chicken with her head cut off....working soo hard!
It was a kewl night. Glen Cove is nice..I drove to Bayville before the seminar where you can see the CT sound from this neat resturant I had lunch in......So strange to think it took me 3 hours from CT and there is my state right there in eyesight.

Forgiveness, where were you seated last night? I was three seats away from the two women who lost husbands(Father and son) at the WTC, in the balcony second row center.
02-14-2002, 06:29 PM
Thanks so much for the posts!!! :)
02-14-2002, 06:31 PM
Thanks so much!!!! :)
02-14-2002, 07:27 PM
Thanks Angelina - what an impressive night. Wonder what would have happened if you did raise your hand or speak up? Sounded so close to what John was saying....who is to know but you and your sister...
02-14-2002, 07:31 PM
There were also two woman on the floor...remember the one that has a special bottle of wine from hubby that the husband spirit was trying to diirect her to find in the cellar...I had orchestra seat q 14.
02-14-2002, 08:39 PM
Keep 'em Commin!!! This is great!
02-14-2002, 09:15 PM
Forgiveness, Yes I do remember those women, they were sisters in law, married to the fireman and policeman. Didn't one of them lose a baby after 9/11? All in all it was an amazing evening.
02-14-2002, 11:28 PM
Thanks for sharing alevia, that was great. i bet you had a wonderful time.
02-15-2002, 07:14 AM
Yes, I think EVERYONE had a wonderful time! I am so excited and thankful that John Edward exists and is changing the way people think about death. He is truly a gifted guy. I cannot wait to see him again! I was sitting about 6 rows behind the WTC women on the floor - row V, seats 14 & 16 with my cousin. What a night. God bless him!
All I can say is, "WOW." It sounds like an amazing night, full of emotion, validations, and hopefully, healing. In many instances, it may be a little too soon for closure, but I guess some healing needs to take place first. Let's pray that it has begun.
02-15-2002, 12:27 PM
OMG Alevia I was 3 rows in front of you....I have long blonde hair... I was in Chair 14 so I was prolly right in front of you!
SO close! Was it hot in there or what?
Nice writeup... I felt like I was almost there :)
<<Was it hot in there or what?>>
Funny, you were in New York and the heat inside at the seminar was stifling. In Houston, the seminar was in the ballroom at the Radisson, and we were on the verge of frostbite. Granted, it was cold, cloudy and very windy outside. Since most people had jackets or coats, they kept them on inside, as well. Who knows? Maybe it was only freezing in the back 2/3 of the room. :shrug:
02-15-2002, 01:50 PM
That is funny forgiveness - I mistyped my seats - my cousin was in seat 15 and I was in seat 14 (22nd row - "V") so I must have seen you. Small world & no coincidences! I think the energies around and in the room were so intense it was hot. My cousin was so tired because of it. I just took off my coat and rolled with it! I will never forget that night!
03-06-2002, 07:05 PM
Thanks to all of you who were there for the "review." I ALMOST felt like I was there too. SOMEDAY/SOMEWAY I WILL see John in person, but for now--thanks for YOUR memories;)
