View Full Version : Wichita -- Wow!
03-22-2002, 10:44 AM
Last night was my first Seminar -- and how awesome it was! I guess that's an advantage in itself, because I can't make comparisons to what happened in other cities or other dates.
Like most people, I wanted a reading; I didn't get one, but I'm not disappointed. I knew from the very beginning I wasn't destined to get a reading this time. I was just hoping. :rainbow:
I met up with another JEFriends.org-ian, MenemaB, at the Seminar. She drove and I flew. I kept thinking, 'Wouldn't it be cool if we just happened to be standing in line next to each other?' And wouldn't you know it? Neither one of us made it to the Seminar at the time we planned on, but we ended up right next to each other in line. How cool was that?
I mostly wanted to feel the energy and presence of JE and the opportunity to see him work. It was incredible and I want to go again. We stood in line for 3 hours. The wind chill was really really cold. I had came with a friend from Missouri and told her it would all be worth it in the end and she did agree afterwards.
Inside the Seminar, I think it was the second person that got to ask JE a question. She was so cool. I can't remember verbatim, but she said something like, "We really froze our bleep bleeps off for you -- and it was really worth it!" JE laughed and seemed genuinely appreciative.
I see other people's post-Seminar messages and can't belive the incredible details people remember. I can't remember nearly all the details, but bits and pieces are coming bck to me. It was all so overwhelming, but very very cool. :cool2:
I'm getting too long and I have more to say, so I'll post again.

Thanks for your post on the seminar. I have been to 2 of them and I know how overwhelming it can be to try to remember the details of all the readings.
How cool that you met MenemaB on line! She is my cousin and I can't wait to hear from her about the whole experience! She is probably on her way home now. ( There really are no coincidences.)
I look forward to hearing from all who attended.

A friend of mine from Missouri went to the Seminar with me. She told me she had her own psychic gifts, but I have never really seen it in action. We were seated on the Stage Left side of the stage about 5 rows from the front. My friend kept staring off into space for the longest time. I asked her what she was looking at. She was looking at a woman about 2 rows in front of us and she seemed to have came alone. She had just told someone she was really hoping for a reading. She told me the woman was very sad and she really needed a reading. My friend told me the woman had lost either a child or a husband-- she wasn't sure which.
... And what do you think happened? Well, I will tell you. She was the second person to be read. I wish I could remember the details of her reading. I was totally in shock. As it turns out, she had lost a son and a husband. The friend I came with was really relieved this lady had gotten read and we were both very happy for her.
By the way, I don't know if any of you have ever been to the Cotillion Ballroom in Wichita, but the stage was really neat. It was arch shaped with these graduated pastel-colored rainbow arches and there was a light by each. John jokingly said the stage was really weird and freaking him out, but it seemed really neat. Everyone talks about his Aura and I really wanted to try and see it. I felt like I could see this semi-invisible energy field around him, but I couldn't be sure -- between the unusual stage-lighting and my eyes being so dry from all the wind.
The leture part was probably pretty typical of most Seminars based on acounts I have read from past Seminars. He did talk about his fear of flying and asked for a show of hands asking whether people would prefer to crash on land or at sea. He said people who prefer to walk away would rather crash on land and people who want to swim away would rather crash at sea. It was funny and he seemed to be settling some kind of bet or dispute with his staff. I would also like to say that his staff seemed like really cool, personable people.
I remember hearing JE talk about grouping at the end of one of his CO shows. It caught me really off guard, because I was waiting for the Seminar to begin and there was a woman behind me on her cell phone and I heard her say the name Emily and Katy. Those are the names of my nieces. It really got my attention. MenemaB was siting near me and also found there were several Coloradoans near us.
A lot of previous Seminar posts, people talk about the energy of the audience or lack thereof. I was wondering what other Wichita Seminar attenders thought. I felt like the energy on my side of the room was good -- but it could be because I felt so excited. Has anyone ever gotten a goosebumpy feeling at a Seminar? :question: Toward the beginnng of the evening, I got this tingly felling and felt goosebumps, but I didn't really feel cold. I wish I could remember exactly what was going on when it happened. I don't know if I got an adrenalin rush because bits and pieces of the reading were ringing true for me or if that might have been me feeling the presence of crossed over loved ones. What do you guys think?

Thanks for all those great details! I think the whole experience is kind of overwhelming for everyone and effects people differently. I did get goose bumps, too. For some reason at the end I just wanted to cry. Not because it was over or I was disappointed ;) but I don't really know why, I just felt so many emotions that I think the only way I could express them all was to cry.

Hi, Glad you enjoyed John. I'm waiting for him to get closer to PA. He did mention either on his show or at his seminar that he gets this feeling like goose bumps . He said that this was "their" way of letting you know they are around. He said they sometime do it to get his attention.
I get it sometimes I just say "Hi mom and dad";)

Great post :)

Hi Karen and Friends,
I decided to wait a few days to post just because of the experience I had at the Wichita Seminar. I needed to digest. As Karen shared, meeting in line at the same time was just a blessed piece of the day. As a Native American based Shaman I believe strongly in the medicine of animals. The eagle, which lies in my north direction is one of the two most powerful guides I have. When I started out driving in the morning Thursday, and crossed the Colorado/Kansas border, there was an eagle to the north of the car just hanging out in limbo. THAT is how this day started for me.
During the 80 mph winds that we had to drive through, and wait in line with, I chose to do an out of body meditation so that it wouldn't be so unbareable. I had been told by my guides prior to leaving for this trip that JE and I would meet, but the message I was getting was this was going to be an unexpected type of connection. This meditation confirmed that. For those of you who do similar work to his, you have experienced the volumes of people who have crossed that enter a room when he does. They actually form a line trying to get his attention. It's overwhelming, and no wonder he can't stand still. It was just fascinating to see and feel. About an hour and half into it I started having severe anxiety and chest pain. Something called to me to get up and leave, which really was making me mad, I didn't want to miss a minute of him, but I had no choice. When the chest pain got so bad I looked up, and saw my deceased birth mother standing next to him on stage (and yes, his aura is the most illuminated I've ever seen!!!). Well, let's just say that I got my own personal reading. I'd never experienced how someone passed physically, and the first the she said was that she died of a heart attack. The pain went away.
You see, I was adopted, and have been searching and searching for years for information that I believe my adoptive parents have. This day I met my mother, and got names, numbers, and leads to find my birth brother. I cannot begin to tell you how this experience affected me, there are no words.
For those of you who fell in love with John on Crossing Over, I can only tell you that this feeling grows more in person. He is a conduit for healing, and one of the most real, humble, loving spirits I have encountered.

That is so very cool! You summed up part of what I have been feeling. I wrote a letter to JE at the end of January. I have so many unresolved issues and feelings about my own psychic experiences, I felt compelled to write to him. I knew I wouldn't get a response from him, but knew I would feel better just knowing he read and understood where I was coming from. I gave him a sort of a word-hug telling him how very special I thought he was -- even without his gifts. And I feel this with even more conviction now.
A lot of people from my job are asking me about the Seminar now, but I feel reluctant to tell them much. They are very skeptical, as I am sure most people at JEFriends.org can relate to. Alhough I didn't get read, I do feel that I was somehow part of the other readings and it feels too personal to share.
My older brother more or less pretended to be supportive of me before I left. Now that I am back, he seems determined to convince me this couldn't possibly be real.
My twin brother, on the other hand, was skeptical -- maybe even cynical -- prior to me leaving. If I turned to Crossing Over he would literally shut down and walk out of the room. I don't necessarily blame him. After high school, he was taken for over $10,000 by a scam-artist who claimed to be a psychic. He wrote all psychics and mediums off after that. He seemed interested in the Seminar when I got back, so I shared little tidbits with him, because I didn't want to overwhelm him. I know he is still skeptical, but I think he wants to believe in JE and maybe that's the first step. I know he desparately wants to connect with our mother. Maybe he would consider going to a Seminar if he comes to Denver.

Melanie, what a beautiful day you had. New experiences as well as a very special validation. Thank you for sharing with us. I loved every word of it.

Karen and Friends,
It just seems that unfortunately many people have been 'taken' by fake psychics. I believe that part of our human experience is to learn to trust, have faith, and love beyond all things seen. The unseen world is really becoming less and less of a mystery for those of us who are willing to share. I understand your hesitancy to share your experience, but that is exactly why I believe John is out there doing the work, fearless, and proudly. As he should. Not everyone is meant for that work, I know I will choose to use my gifts otherwise (being bombarded by those that have crossed would exhaust me!!! LOL), but what would we be doing today if he wasn't sharing his gifts? For those of us that he touches, we will touch, and so on and so on. Our job is to share the word and let go of the outcome, and we are doing that. Thank goodness that we have somewhere to go to get support and know that people don't think we are nuts.
And Karen, not if, but WHEN John does come to Denver, I hope we can cross paths again!!!!
Irishrose, you are so welcome!!
I have re-read your post about three times in order to absorb what you have so beautifully written. You have been able to paint a picture of what it is like for John and all the energies of those who have crossed ( "they actually form a line to get his attention") that is truly remarkable. I only wish I was as advanced in my abilities as you so obviously are!
Your post meant a lot to me and I want to thank you for sharing such an incredible experience with us in such an eloquent way. Good luck on your search. :)

Kim, thank you for the beautiful words. My only thought, keep practicing, keep watching, keep reading, keep listening. They are everywhere just waiting to be heard.
Melanie, thank you so much for your fascinating description of the seminar. You had a very exciting view of it that most of us can't experience. The energy in the room comes through to almost everyone but not the ability to see those coming through and to see auras. I really envy people who can do that.
