View Full Version : Back from Westbury

The Westbury seminar was great. The facility was good for such an event. The stage is circular & centrally located so it seemed like there were no bad seats there.
John came out at 7:15 & stayed on until 10pm. He seemed especially light hearted & good natured, perhaps because he was on his home territory.
I'll leave specifics of readings to those with notes & a better memory than my own.
Bonus: In the audience was a British medium named Robert Brown, who I am not familiar with.
During the question/ answer portion I found the courage to raise my hand & was picked. The miracle here is not that I was picked but that I would ever speak publicly. Anyone who knows me knows that I would cheerfully endure 7 root canals rather than speak in front of people.
After bemoaning the fact that my voice sounded strange over the microphone, which made him smile, I said that I am still in the process of learning & I thanked him for his part in it. He seemed genuinely touched by this & said that when he started doing Crossing Over it was his hope that people would learn more about the process.
It was a wonderful experience, as I knew it would be.

Welcome back Pam :D
I can't wait to hear more about the event, perhaps you can stop by chat on Sunday with the other members who went and tell us all about it ( HINT ) how's that for subtle? lol
I'm not good at speaking up either, so totally sympathize!
Pam, was your Westbury seminar the one that was filmed for future shows? I know one of them was filmed.

Pam, ;you don't give yourself enough credit. You could easily speak up - you just did!!
So glad you had such a good experience. It is also good that the event was so positive. When I first heard that JE would be doing so many of these seminars I wondered if it would wear him out - now I am thinking that they rejuvenite him. How neat is that?
Did Robert Brown do any readings or just watch John work? Was Sandra there? We have not heard too much about her lately. The stories JE tells are usually pretty funny.
Can't wait to hear more.
Thanks for sharing your experience - you get a gold star for speaking up....:star:

I'm so glad you finally got to a seminar. And you did very well. You raised your hand and you spoke well enough to get an answer. Sounds like you did a great job. What's next?

I was at the may 7th seminar at westbury and it was just great. they were filming this one for tv and the whole seminar was exceptional. the feeling and energy in the room was very high and during his readings it was so quiet, you could literally hear a pin drop. his readings were right on the mark and he was out from about 7:20 until about 9:50. there was no intermission and it was a wonderful evening. although this was the seventh time i have seen john i still wasn't read however it doesn't matter to me since it is wonderful to see the comfort he brings to the people that are read. i feel my time hasn't come yet but i will continue to try to go see him whenever i can. i hope we get some postings on this board from other people who were there on the 7th or 8th.

Tammy: I'll see you in chat on Sunday.
Gail: Mine was not being filmed for television.
Irishrose: I am amazed at how he keeps up with what has to be a hellish schedule. Robert Brown didn't do readings. I don't know if John's wife was there. Thanks for the gold star:D How can it be that I willingly jump out of airplanes but I hyperventilate if I have to speak in public? Go figure..
Fairiedust: It's so good to see him live. That was my 4th time since December. I remember making such pilgrimages for the Grateful friggin' Dead.:) Pam
Well Pam, you are still making pilgrimages for the grateful "dead" in a way. :D

Non-public speaker, Pam (delusionalblond) and vivi, too:
It is so great to hear from others who have been to seminars, and who go to not necessarily get a reading (although I know none of us would ever turn one down), but to partake in the wonderful experience.
I have often felt like a JE "groupie" which seems to be expressed in your comparison to following the "Grateful Dead." ( I love Gails pun, too.)
Looking forward to hearing more from all the recent seminars. I love reading the stories. It confirms for me that our loved ones are here, just a dimension away, still loving and caring about us and our well being.
Love, light, and peace,

Just got back from Westbury, May 8 seminar. John was fabulous as usual, although I personally feel he is getting BETTER with age, since the first time I saw him in 3/01.
One of my favorite moments of the evening was Robert Brown describing John when he is reading like a "terrier with a bone".
He briefly mentioned the workshop from the previous weekend and said stay tuned for more of those to come.
Some of the readings that stick out in my mind.....
there was a family seated to the left of us, where two women had lost husbands who were fire fighters in 9/11. They came through together, and john said one kept putting himself above the other......turns out one was leiutenant over the other, and they had a friendly competition, and also described where they were in the towers when they were lost. He nailed specific names for these families and details about an upcoming memorial they were doing for them.
Another interesting moment was when a women's mother came through under a "stripping" reference. Although she wasn't a stripper for real turns out they had a girl coming out of a cake for her husband's b'day, and later on mom decided to show up the stripper by doing her own show. Later John asked if the women's son was named after her mother, and of course he prefaced this by saying he thought it was wierd that a male child be named after a mother, and at first the woman said no, but then recollected that her son's nickname was MOM. pretty cool eh. this same energy brought several other people's relatives through that happened to be sitting in the same box.
that's all I can remember at the moment.
One thing I noticed was that the readings that were done seemed to me to be longer and more detailed than in previous seminars, and it was more "gallery like", because of that. Unfortunately that meant overall less people got read, but I think it was better this way, because the readings were more interesting with greater depth. Just my opinion.:jumper:
PAM.......what was your question? I'm assuming you are blond b/c of your nick.....and I think I know when I saw you.....refresh my memory

It was when he was taking audience questions. I didn't ask him a question. I told him that I was still in the process of learning & I thanked him for his part in it. Remember the young man who asked him if he had received his video tape? I was seated directly behind him. Pam
