View Full Version : Jacksonville Seminar....

Well, I wasn't going to post anything until tomorrow, but I have a major sleep problem, so will try tonight.
We, my mom and I got there at 7 am. We were about 20th in line and ended up behind NLitenme (Samara), we made no special arrangements. I had a yellow balloon so that my new found cousin could find me. My cuz got lucky to find two "extra tickets." Well, here I am with my yellow balloon so that my cuz could find me and Samara asked me if I was trying to meet up with someone like from website. I said "Pam's board. No." but I knew what she was talking about. She asked me my name and she told me hers and we had emailed each other a couple times. She was attending with her mother and asked what were some good places to visit here (first thought: none) kidding aside, St Augustine, my favorite place, but kind of far (an hour from here).
03-10-2002, 10:41 PM
We, Samara, my mother, and me got to know each other and I felt like we were family!!!! She, Samara, hadn't eaten anything all day and gave my mom a donut!!! She is soooooo sweet! Okay, I'm looking desparately for my cuz's yellow balloon. I left for a minute, came back and my mom told me that Donna asked if she was Judy (my cuz and my mom are both named Judy), my mom replied yes and Donna, poor Donna, said I'm Donna ( she had the second extra ticket my cuz needed to buy, I forgot to tell my mom about all this). My mom was like "okay." They finally figured out what was what. I came back, sat, mom went away and I see someone walk by with rose jean jacket. I, of course, knew who it was. She came back and introduced myself. I told her about being with my mom and Samara. My Mom comes walking up, stops to talk with police and heads our way. (my mom thinks this is my cuz, lol). Sees Pooh and gives big hug and says she wouldn't have reconized her!! Okay, I'm trying to explain in a hurry. soooooo funny!!!!
03-10-2002, 10:47 PM
Pictures are taken and so funny!! Well, soon after, I see my cuz!! I wasn't exactly sure, but had a hunch. I have my yellow balloon and she's coming at me. How wonderful!!!!! One of the best moments of my life was meeting her. I would post how and blah, blah, blah how we met, but I feel it has more to do with her, so if I get permission, I will do so. Her husband is also so wonderful. BTW, born in same town as my father (VERY small town). All that has happened is very, very odd and sooooo wonderful. I have been given a gift and am loving every minute of it!!! I will post the rest tomorrow.
03-11-2002, 10:15 AM
The doors opened at 11:00 and we sat in the 5th row. John was funny and very interesting. My mom was laughing and having a great time, this made me really happy. There were a lot of great readings, a lot of them took a long time to validate though :( . I didn't take any notes because I couldn't keep up, I write too slow. I could hear everything really well even when readings were across the room. There was one question that someone asked that John could not answer, it was, Do the ones on the otherside pray for us like we pray for the? Not the exact wording. John said that this was a great question and he couldn't answer it.
This is about all I can think of, I'm sure some others will be able to do a better job at adding about the seminar.
03-11-2002, 11:28 AM
Renee is so right, it was a wonderful day!! I thought how wonderful that no special arrangements were made for us to meet, yet Renee, her mom, and I still ended up in line right by each other. Renee and her mom are two of the sweetest people I have ever met!! By the way Renee, I asked my mom if she believed you had a 17 year old, and she said she thought you were only about 23 yourself!!! Anyway, we had a great time in line, and it made the time go by so fast!! Renee found Poohbear, and we all took pictures together, ( I think Pooh will get these up later.) Pooh then found another member of the boards, and we took more pictures, not sure of her name on the boards, but she said she was still in lurker mode, but her name is Donna, and she is also a very sweet person. One of John's assistants, Jessy came through and took our tickets and stamped our hands. They then opened the doors, and My mom and I sat in the third row. Jessy gave John a wonderful intro, and then John came out. I was so thrilled to actually be so close, because in the one on Atlanta, I was so far away I couldn't even see him.
John of course was wonderful. My mom and I did not recieve a reading, but the readings he did were wonderful. He actually brought through someone's relative with the infromation that someone had cheese in thier purse, not cheese cracker, like sharp cheddar cheese, it took about 10 minutes, and then someone finally said " I had some sharp cheddar cheese in my purse, but I already ate it in my car." John said "were you alone in your car?" The woman said "yes" John said "well no you weren't, someone saw you eating that cheese" He answered a lot of questions. and in the beginning he did talk about his dear friend Shelly Peck. He also talked about his response to Skeptics There is so much more, however I will let others post, and will probably post more later. John was wonderful, whitty, funny, and so so full of positive energy, The experience was great, and I feel that I have made some friends for life. I would like to say thankyou to Renee and her mom Judy for making the wait in line an enjoyable one. Hi to Pooh and our new member Donna who are such wonderful people. I am so grateful to have been able to attend this seminar, I left feeling so positive. Again I will post more later.
03-11-2002, 01:42 PM
Please tell your mom I said "Thank you!!!!!!!!!!" Your mom was wonderful too and Pooh and Donna, such nice people! You know, Jessie never did that Sat Night Live impression he was going to do (the one where they made fun of JE). JE said he thought it was really funny and then did his own impression of the skit.
03-11-2002, 02:11 PM
I know, I was hoping to see Jessie do that impression, although John did a great impression...hmm maybe John could guest host Saturday Night Live.
03-11-2002, 03:13 PM
Hi to all the JE friends I met in Jacksonville, even the nameless lurkers. Some had t-shirt decals that I recognized from the website, Renee recognized me and then introduced me to Samara. I found Donna, too and we did the photo sessions. What very nice friendly "JE friends." I'll find out how to scan and get them on this site over Spring Break next week. (Sorry I'm a bit slow at computer techniques, but I will work on it. Anyone who wants to send helpful info to me, please do, just remember I have an IMAC)
I too met others in line (and gave them the website address), that helped make the wait fun and interesting. My friend and I stood by a pair of twins, so identical...it was amazing. Others shared stories and why they were there, etc. Because we were staying at the Radisson, we ate breakfast and then got in line, so we sat in the 8th row, but on the aisle and very good viewing and sound. JE stayed pretty much up on the low stage, and paced more than I remember in the past. There were some terrific questions, asked and answered. I took fairly good notes, so I will post this weekend after I collect my thoughts and feelings.
I must share with all of you how I had really hoped to get a reading this time (my 3rd seminar), but I didn't....and yet I am not disappointed at all. Not at all. It was a wonderful afternoon session. It did seem like the people that really needed the readings (or with the loudest spirits) got the readings. But there were other more subtle messages through John's Q & A time, as well as his shared stories that held special meaning for me.
I feel like I am dangling a carrot....but I must get school stuff out of the way before I can digest and reflect on all that happened.
I am a bit miffed that CO is not on SCI FI tonight (or last night), but it says it is back on Tuesday, so I hope it will be.
Love, light, peace, and appreciation to all of you here for the support you lend
03-11-2002, 09:24 PM
John Edward would be so awesome with his wit!!!! I've already started contemplating potential skits. Mmmmm ..... JE with blonde streak in hair ( I see dead people). The possibilities are endless! This topic needs a new thread. Okay, John Edward on Saturday Night Live would not only bring life to the show, but he is soooooo perfect because he is funny.
Actually, my secret wish has always been to be on SNL as part of cast! That's why I've always contemplated skits. I do the best Ruth Buzzie imitation, at least my family thinks so. Are you listening Ruth Buzzie cast seekers? I'm not stupid, I know there are none.
03-11-2002, 09:51 PM
Hi again, just adding more of my thought's on Jacksonville, the whole thing was a beautiful experience, meeting Renee, Judy her mom, Pooh, Donna everything was so wonderful. I was hoping to get a reading, but it didn't happen this time. I still left the seminar feeling so positive about life. Knowing even more than I did before, that our loved ones are always with us, and that we CAN communicate with them. John's message has helped me in so many ways, and I am continuing to learn.
03-12-2002, 09:38 AM
Hi, I'm the Donna that some of you met in Jacksonville. It seems like there is another Donna here. I would call myself the "new" Donna but that seems rather insulting to the "old", I mean, "other", Donna. ;) I'm sure we'll work something out.
John mentioned September 11th several times during the seminar. He told us the story about Sandra being in the air during the attacks and that her flight was one that had been unsuccessfully targeted (see the Biography magazine thread under the Media Articles Forum for more details). Yikes! The poor man must have been terrified, especially when he asked his guides and they replied that she WAS in danger. I have to add this next little extra detail because I love John’s sense of humor and he’s always cracking me up. Sandra was stranded in Cincinnati for 4 days so he rented a car to drive cross-country from California to get her. She asked him if he was coming to rescue her on his white horse and he replied “no, a blue minivan.” Can’t you just hear him saying that?
He also mentioned that he was working with some of the families who lost loved ones. As an example of delivering information that didn’t make sense to him, he told us about a woman whose firefighter husband didn’t make it out of the towers and whose remains had not been found. The husband told her that they would not find his body and then thanked her for picking out a shirt for his memorial. That confused John because why would she pick out a shirt if there were no body? It turns out that his company created a memorial for him by framing his shirt.
The other big mention was at the end of his reply to an audience member’s question “does everyone go to the same place?” John said that everyone does go to the same spiritual place but the some are on a lower level than others. Those who have hurt people have to experience the pain they caused to others. They do have to deal with the consequences of their actions so they can learn from it. Then he started talking about the terrorists and it seemed to me that he got a little angry and upset (who can blame him?). You should have seen his face. This is almost word for word what he said next. When they crossed over they were “expecting, what is it, 76 virgins? Imagine their surprise when they found 3,000 people waiting to beat the shit out of them.”
The whole audience erupted into cheers and applause at that. All this might sound a little harsh when love is what we are striving for, but I actually found it a relief that someone like John, who is more in tune and knowledgeable than I, is still dealing with a lot of negative emotions, too. I got past the hate very quickly because I think that hate is what caused Sept. 11. I don’t want to be a part of that. It took me longer to get past the anger and now I’m working on forgiveness, which I’ll be working on for a looooong time. Of course, I know what I’ve felt is perfectly natural, but knowing that John is struggling gives me permission to not feel guilty about still needing time. See? John is a great teacher even when he’s not trying.
I took lots of notes so you'll be hearing from me again soon. Thanks to everyone else who is posting about Jacksonville; you're helping me remember and clarify what happened there.
03-12-2002, 10:02 AM
Thanks Felice (Donna) for that excellent report. I agree with you. John continues to be the teacher as well as learn while he goes - nice touch. Glad you posted - any time
Yes, I'm sure that John is just as human as the rest of us. I'm sure that what he said was tongue in cheek, and is using humor to deal with the same negativity we feel. It *is* funny, and even more so, coming from him :)
03-12-2002, 11:36 AM
Renee, Samara, Pooh & Donna!
Thank you all for posting!!
How wonderful that you had the chance to meet!! Meant to be :)
I enjoyed reading the post and thanks again for taking the time to write.
Take care, Cyndy
03-12-2002, 03:11 PM
I also enjoyed reading the posts - thanks!!

Hi to all the JE friends I met in Jacksonville, even the nameless lurkers. Some had t-shirt decals that I recognized from the website
i was one of the nameless lurkers who attended jacksonville.I had on one of the T-shirt's.I had also made t-shirts for my parents& sisters.I don't get much time to post because I'm a single parent who works part-time & attends school part-time.I just wanted to say,Hi! also that I loved the seminar.It was everything I had hoped for.None of my family got a reading eventhough at 1 time I feel that my friends son came thru.It was the last reading I think.the one where he mentioned the baby .i think that at 1st my friends son was there but then the other couples child behind us came thru.It was OK tho because that couple really needed the reading.I could hear the mans sigh of relief when he told him his brother's death wasn't his fault.that was the one where the couple had lost a baby & she was pregnant due in July.And the one where there had been a drowning.I wish I had time to post everything.maybe over the weekend.
any way just wanted to re-introduce myself.
03-15-2002, 02:55 PM
Sure - glad to have you back. If you get time over the weekend please do post what you remember. It is so nice to read those wonderful experiences.
03-15-2002, 09:02 PM
I'm thinking pics should be up soon. My mom and I also had a "me too reading, it was so funny, because we were in the third row, and the information John was getting was so right on for us, and my mom and I were about to jump out of our chairs...at one point John said "I see you guys, but I really think I'm back here" We were patient, and someone finally validated the info John was getting....we didn't want to be relative stealers..lol.

JACKSONVILLE SEMINAR 3-10-02
From my notes and my memory here is the best recollection I can come up with. Since others have posted, too, it may seem repetitive, but I don’t want to leave anything out, although I probably will because I didn't’ take notes during all of John’s stories.
My friend, Billie and I were very excited to be in Jacksonville for the Seminar. We woke around 6 am, ate breakfast at the hotel (Radisson), and then I told her we should go check out the line. Being it was her first seminar, she was surprised to see the line. I was not surprised and went up to the front and boldly asked the first few people in line how early they got there. The lady who was 1st in line said, “1:00 am,” the next group said, “4:00 am.” Although it was now about 8:30 am, I was glad I didn’t get up sooo early.
While in line we visited with the people around us, a group from Florida (a mother, her daughter,and some cousins), and two identical twin women with one of their husbands.
I also walked up and down the line to try to find people from the JEFriends website. I found Rainay and Nlitenme, and later Donna and Purplelady, and some folks wearing JE (Don’s decal) T-shirts. We took pictures of some of us together both inside and outside. It seemed like it was a long time until 11:00 when the doors opened. Prior to the doors opening I thought I recognized Jesse (I had met him in MPLS at that seminar) I said hello to him, mentioning that I remembered him from MPLS. and he said he would start with me and stamped my hand with a happy face and took my ticket. (A new method of collecting tickets, I guess.) The line was getting excited by then. At 11:00 the doors opened and the people went in very orderly, as I recall. Billie and I were fortunate to get seats on the aisle about 8 rows back from the stage. Billie went out to buy the books and pins, I later went out to buy the set of tapes--cash only, but a good deal.
While all the 1100 people were slowly finding their seats, I found Jesse again, looked for Carol and finally greeted her too. I asked Jesse if I could have my picture taken with he and Carol, since I didn’t think I could with JE. Jesse said sure, but at the time (right before it was suppose to begin) we couldn’t find Carol, so the picture is of me and Jesse. He was teasing me about being from MPLS. Jesse then proceeded to the low stage and asked the crowd if they were ready for John, getting a good response, he then said...."How much do you want to see John Edward?” The crowd roared....JE was out on stage at 12:25 to a standing ovation. He wore his glasses, dark jeans, and a dark shirt. It was soooo awesome to see him “in person” again.
He mentioned it had been 2 years since Crossing Over started. He said he has been a student of the field for 17 years, and continues to learn. He is equally taken aback by what happens on the show (CO) as are the gallery participants. He then started with his story about Shelley Peck and how she got her name the “greeting committee” from seminars they had done together. Shelley seemed to be drawn to the “recently crossed” spirits where as JE was drawn to the “bizarre or tragic crossings.” [You could tell he deeply missed Shelley.] He told how at the Tucson seminar he was reading a lady whose father had crossed. All of a sudden he saw this woman’s father with Shelley Peck right next to him. He asked the woman when her father had crossed, she said a few days or week ago.
[I can’t express how very special it was to be in the presence of JE and his work, even his stories were so meaningful, funny, and appreciated by the audience.] Next he talked about having to work on his “people skills.” Talked about a recent incident when he badgered someone and a producer or someone in charge of the event had to talk to him about it. (I can’t recall the specifics,sorry.) He talked about saying “Bite-Me” in a People Magazine interview, and how skeptics take everything out of context. The Afterlife Experiments book was mentioned. He said he has participated in 4 phases. Had he to do it over again, he wasn’t sure....but he has learned a lot from it. He called the audience “sitters” and told everyone to be sure to LISTEN, and asked us all to AGREE to work in this arena. Then he took questions.
First Question: What is a visit?
JE: A crossed over loved one comes to you vividly in a dream. This experience stays with you if it is a visit, does not if just a dream. It is the biggest gift.
Second Question: Pet question, how do you communicate with animals? (I didn’t write down the answer) But as I recall he said it was like “pet” energy, not words. He also mentioned that his wife watched the Pet Psychic (on Animal Planet) and wanted him to watch it too.
He then went on to talk about 9-11, saying that those who killed others will have to suffer the mental and physical pain for each person they killed when they cross over. [I wonder if that holds for people who kill during war?]
Next he told the whole story about telling his wife not to leave for California on Sept. 10, but to wait until Sept. 11 in the morning to join him in Calif. for the Latin American awards. Sandra is a big fan of Ricky Martin. How the Larry King Show on Sept. 10th was so helpful to many people, talking more about the process than just readings. [The only reading I recall from 9/10 is something about a cow.] He mentioned how he decided to do the show Monday, because he said the show would be canceled (for a big news story) if he did it on Wednesday. He thanked Larry several times for doing the show on the process and helping so many people. When Sandra was grounded in Cincinnati, he said he wasn’t a knight on a white horse, but a medium in a blue Mini Van. [Great sense of timing and humor, the audience was laughing a lot.]
He said he would go right into readings, with no break....big cheer from the crowd, but he told people they had to stay put in their seats, as he has been known to send microphoned staff members to the bathrooms. Then a lady in the front row says she was one of the people who got caught in the bathroom when her crossed relatives came through.

Toy of his crossed brother.
JE: “police connection, October or 10 connection”

“2 to side, 2 below, fast heart attack, Female J., 2 men to
grandmother’s side” LADY: yes, her grandmas husband & her brother

JE: “tying roses to a boat” toasted Dad’s name

[Again it seemed like JE was pulling teeth to get validations. He told them to write him when they figure the rest out.]
(Sorry it is late, more will be posted tomorrow.)
03-15-2002, 11:47 PM
Well, I've been very lazy about posting to this thread. Thanks to Pooh for inspiring me again.
I, too, have a little introduction to the seminar day and then I'll follow up on some of the things Pooh mentioned (and I hope she does the same to what I post). I arrived at 8:45 and started looking for Jude to sell her my extra ticket. I saw the yellow balloon I was looking for but didn't see a redhead with it, so, being fairly shy, I just went to the back of the line without asking. Two very nice older ladies ended up behind me. They kept saving my place as I ran around looking for Jude, taking pictures with the group from this board, and standing in the increasingly long line to the restroom. Jude and I eventually found each other(whew!) and then Pooh came looking for me to include me in a picture. That was incredibly friendly of her, considering that, though I had been visiting Pam's site for months, I had only recently registered for the discussion boards and never actually posted. I kept thinking, "They are going to look at these and wonder Who in the world is that woman on the end?" I hung around for a few minutes to chat. Jude's husband told me a sweet story about how they had met years ago in Jacksonville. He also told me how they though they had gotten a sign from their son. I have to agree that it was a sign--it was defintely a "wow" story.
When I got back to my spot in line, the group around me was buzzing. They had seen a young woman talking to an older lady in black, who was writing something down. A few minutes later, both had been called by name and escorted in to the seminar room. This incident had everyone who saw it deciding that if they saw that young woman get a reading they would know this was all a hoax. I've seen enough of John to not doubt his integrity but what could I say to a bunch of strangers? I merely said they could be special guests of a staff member or ticket winners from local TV station that carries CO in syndication. When they kept expressing their doubts, I replied that it was OK to be skeptical--John actually encourages it--but to keep an open mind. Right before the seminar began, the two women came out of a back room and sat front and center. Of course, they did NOT get a reading.
I also remember some of the "people skills" story that Pooh mentioned. John was trying to read a couple whose son was coming through. They kept saying no to everything that came through and you know how frustrated that makes John. He told us that the son finally stepped back with an "oh well, I tried" attitude (how sad!) John moved on to the couple next to them who comfirmed everything he said. The he heard the first woman grumble under her breath something to the effect that John had no trouble reading the OTHER couple. John got so mad that he turned to her and told the her that her son had been trying just as hard to connect with her and her husband but they had refused to listen. Ouch! Afterwards, John's friend Ernie took him aside and told him that maybe he should work on his people skills. Yelling at grieving parents isn't the most sensitive way to handle things. John basically told us that he can get upset by readings like that because he knows how hard the energies are working to come through and he can sometimes feel the what they are feeling when their loved ones don't acknowledge them. I interpeted that to mean they also feel frustrated/disappointed, but John didn't specify. Maybe some actually get really angry or just laugh.
Wow, it's late! I think I need to continue this after I get some sleep.
03-16-2002, 09:12 AM
I couldn't recall that story, I'm glad you did. Like I mentioned I didn't always take notes during his stories. Who's Ernie? I recall JE mentioning that name, but I couldn't figure out who that was.
Felice, please add or embelish anything you can to my notes. I found out last night that when I am writing quickly I can't always read it later on. LOL
JACKSONVILLE SEMINAR 3-10-02 ---PART Three--BY POOH
Here goes with Reading #3: The CHEESE reading!!
JE: “Cheese, someone here has cheese in their purse, not just a picture of cheese, but a real slice of cheese, like baby Bon Bon Bell, cheese in a bag” [this took a long time to find the cheese LADY.] LADY: says she ate the cheese in her car, right before the seminar.
JE: “father passes, rheumatoid arthritis in hand” LADY: acknowledged father
“older female, Tessy, Tootsie, Tussy, Ts something”
“she has arthritis,”
JE: “Dad “drinker”, somebody’s a boozer” LADY: nodded
“J connection, still here”
JE: “diagnosis - Breast cancer - 3rd month big one LADY: birthday
JE: “suicide- contemporary, asphyxiation, LADY: acknowledged, yes
will get message to family
JE: “two people passed with tragedy (1 was killed)
son or son-in-law impact to the head” LADY: hit by bat
JE: “Patrick” “P-connection” known through marriage
JE: “your last son - younger male there”
JE: “Elizabeth/Liz” LADY: grandmother passed
JE: “Illinois connection, nurse-healthcare background” LADY: validation, 2 dads
(I could not see all the acknowledgements, this reading was far to my right.)
[Another tooth puller....JE really had to work on this day, to get the people to validate...must have been very frustrating. But you can see here where he is drawn to the tragic crossings.]
Reading #4: This is a short one. Quick validations.
JE: “Father-in-law, Dad, 'army guy', and brother PERSON: yes Dad refinished cars.
JE: “looks like OR, connection, someone shot” PERSON: yes, NW cousin
JE: “Chrones disease (stomach)” PERSON: yes
JE: “B’day June 13, 14, -- 3 kids (2 & 1) PERSON: yes
JE: “2 deaths anniversary ” PERSON: yes, consider 10 months in coma
dad died twice once when he went into coma.
[This is how readings should go, fast,quick and all validated]
Stay tuned for readings 5-8, more questions, more stories, as well as how to record your dreams.
LOVE, light, and peace,
03-16-2002, 10:24 AM
Thank you for posting about the seminar! I always love reading about them.
((( BIG hugs )))
03-18-2002, 09:33 AM
One of the readings I remember from Jax was another one that was like pulling teeth. It was the one were the person was over medicated and the person had helped them to pass. John relayed the story that his Mom asked him just to leave the bottle of morphine in her room and no one would ever have to know. It took a long time to get someone to acknowledge the person. I thought it was very brave and difficult for John to reveal such personal things about this reading. Can anyone else help with more details? I wish I had taken notes. If I remember more I'll post later.

Oh Jill, I can relate to the morphine concern. I think that if my brother-in-law had been at home that would have been the issue. But because he was in the hospital it never became an issue. The doctor told the family and the staff that if my b-i-l was getting uncomfortable to up the dosage. That is exactly what happened. He would begin to move around and mutter a little bit. The only time the morphine was backed off was when his daughter arrived. She got to have her own OLT with her dad then they increased it again. I have not known such wonderful people as those that cared for my b-i-l.
Also, Ernie is a personal friend of JE's. Remember in the CO book he and Ernie decided to have lunch at a strip mall where the female DJ was doing an onsite? JE recognized her voice as he had talked to her when a fake medium upset her about her engagement - remember that? At any rate Ernie was with JE when they met face to face and she called him by name when all he said to her was Hello.

JAX Seminar -- 3/10/02
Right before the 5th reading JE related a story about a Police Officer from 9/11 and how the spirit of the officer thanked his wife for laying out his uniform. JE couldn’t understand the meaning since the wife said they didn’t find his body...but then she said that they retired his uniform and she had layed that out.
JE: “Mom coming through, someone assisted her in passing, Elaina, Ellen, Elaine, over medicated -- but not discussed, passed at home.”
[JE repeated this for quite a long time and tried 6-8 different people who thought it was them, finally a lady stood up...]
JE: “cancer on morphine...overly medicated, Jn handicapped,
Your mom appreciates the fact that you helped her cross.”
LADY: Eleanor - mother,
brother, Jn passed, mother on morphine - took care of
JE: “You have her scarf” “Jn is with her,” LADY: nods
You did not get help to take care of her,
Dad didn’t help, everything landed on you.”
JE: “You talked about her leaving prior to her
passing, special song, “My buddy”, “colonial furniture”
“Your mom is thanking you, very polite” LADY: her parents had furniture
with her - “Marilyn, drove a bus LADY: someone who passed
interesting vocabulary” a woman who drove a cab
yes to the vocabulary
[This reading was tough to get going, but fairly short once the Lady acknowledged the spirits....it was far to the back of the room, so I may have missed some responses from the Lady.]
JE: “Younger male - step son, son figure, taken off life support, Jo, Joely, Jody, Joey, issue health care related” People: Brother-in-law,
sister’s husband, not on life
JE: “2 younger energies, Alfred, Albert
27th connection, bleeding-hemorage” People: Al, younger step son & neice.
JE: “mom, didn’t get chance to talk to,
still sassy with mom even though gone.” People: yes, okay
JE: “you keep mom real & human”
JE: “Christine, Christina” People: sister who passed
JE: “Maria” connected to someone else”
“Romanian, bulgarian background”
[I don’t think the last part was acknowledged. More was probably acknowledged that I got down--notes are difficult to take. It is easier from the TV. LOL]
QUESTION: “ Do we pick our parents?” JE: Yes we pick our parents because of lessons we need to learn. We chart out our course as a spirit energy before come to earth, there are certain things you have to learn, but you do have free will.
I’m going to add the How to interpret your dreams ideas here, although the information came after the 7th reading:
JE: make 3 columns. Write the dream in detail in the first column underlining the terms used (ie, white, cow, jump, moon). Second column define each word in your own frame of reference -- what does that word mean to you.
The 3rd column, steam the meanings together to get meaning of the dream.
[I think I got that right, it seems simple and helpful.]
Love, light, and peace,
P.S. One more segment to go, readings 7 & 8. Please add in anything I missed if you were at JAX seminar.

You brought a lot back for me. I think I sat there in a simpleton awe the whole time. I was listening, but to recall from memory is hard. Thanks for your awesome note keeping!

Thank you everyone for all of the wonderful posts from the Jacksonville Seminar. If John comes back to Florida next year I think my sister Gail and I will go to both the Orlando and the Jacksonville seminars. A lot of people where I work were disappointed they could not go but I have been giving them all the website here so that they can share the experiences. I did not realize how many John Edward fans there were where I work until I started talking about the seminar. Keep up the good posts everyone.

JACKSONVILLE SEMINAR (LAST SEGMENT) FROM 3/10/02
Sorry it took me so long to finish this.
Here goes 7th reading:
JE: “Grandfather crossed over” Couple: Lady nods
JE: “Baby is here” (Lady breaks down, husband stands up/acknowledges)
MAN: acknowledges they lost a baby recently.
JE: “July connection, 7th month, Couple: new Baby due in July
mom still living”
JE: “Husband has 7 brothers/sisters”
Grandfather crossed, Bobbie (living son) Man: His or wife’s ex-spouse has a grandfather that has passed.
JE: “Fire, pyrotechnical connection” MAN: Basic training in military
JE: “younger male energy” MAN: his brother drowned
JE: “nobody at fault, freak accident lots of people watched, he knows you
carried the burden, but not your fault” MAN: [you could see he was
moved by this] nodded
JE: “watch Ordinary People (movie)--THIS WAS NOT like that”
JE: “someone hit by car, someone fell off ladder,
crazy” COUPLE: acknowledged
JE: “Mom’s sister is there (your aunt)”
JE: “Linda, Lynn...”
[This reading was one of the most moving of the seminar. This young couple was visibly helped and relieved by John’s healing messages. They sat just in front of me and a few seats over to the left, both were very nervous before the seminar started. The woman was out/gone for quite some time before the readings began. Having the young man’s drowned brother acknowledge that it was not his fault, was very moving for all of us near by.]
LAST - 8TH READING:
JE: “2 sisters coming though”
“Hysterical wheezing laugh” Person: grandmother and aunt, passed
JE: “nicknames” “H-name” Person: Dad has passed
“Queen’s NY/in New Jersey” PERSON: Ex is from Queens off expressway
JE: “Firefighter” PERSON: current husband
JE: “S - samuel, s-a PERSON: aunt Sarah passed
JE: “worked for eye Dr./Pediatrician” cousin’s husband is eye dr.
JE: “Feb or 2nd of a month
interpreter (UN shown) sign language [I think this was related to the dad political/government/worked for” that crossed.]
JE: “Flag related - Banner” Father in service?
JE: “On tour”
JE: “mom with them (not as loud) PERSON: nod
“you fell yesterday on your knee acknowledged-this is a weakness in your family (knees)
JE: “you are the MOUTH of the family” PERSON: yes
JE: “on stage in JR. HS
JE: “All the relatives sorry they were not at more family events, it was their choice not to attend.”
[interesting reading, most things were validated, even if I didn’t catch them.]
Do the spirits hear us? JE talked about how they are not “peeping spirits”only around for certain things. Crossing over is like a birthday for the deceased. It is very positive, they are met by others who have gone on before them.
There were not too many readings, because of the ones that took so long for people to acknowledge....which is too bad. I also noticed that JE paced more than I remember at past seminars - perhaps because he did not walk out into the audience. Seemed like security was pretty tight, lots of body guards.
Looking forward to reading excerpts from the other Florida seminars as well as upcoming ones in Wichita, and Albuquerque.
L, L, & P,

Thanks for the postings - I know that being so close must have made quite an impact for you all. It made an impact on us at the Mpls seminar when the couple in back of us had a reading for their son.
Was it at Jacksonville or one of the other seminars where some one posted that the would tell us later about JE scaring his grandmother and also about a vision of his mother.
I haven't read anything about this - unless I missed it.
