View Full Version : Looking for family of Tina from Feb. 10 '02 Houston Seminar

I am trying to find the family of Tina who was the first reading John did at the Houston seminar on Feb. 10th 2002. To this day I am kicking myself in the pants for not speaking up during the readings. Tina's mother was the one wearing the Flag shirt. If anyone knows this family or was at the seminar I would love to hear from you.
There were a few members who attended that seminar, including myself. I don't personally know anyone who was read, but you may be interested in this thread from the Seminar Tour folder that has information on the Feb. 2002 Houston Seminar:

I read the thread now and I'm wondering if you ever got an answer to your question and why you asked.
I have most of the seminar in shorthand and have only recently started to type it up. I don't know why I didn't do it right away. My husband is a big skeptic and I've never found time or felt justified in spending the time to transcribe my notes, but it has haunted me since I went that I never spoke up. I really believe that my mother was the older woman in the car with John on the way to the seminar and if she wasn't the one who donated tissue to Tina then it was a parrallel that brought them together. I'd be curious to know when Tina receive the transplant. The first several items that John mentioned all had meaning for my mother who passed in 1993 and many more throughout the readings. The night before the seminar I stood in my living room and out loud (I wasn't taking any chances that Mom wouldn't hear me) I said - if you come through say something about the tissue donation or ..... and mentioned a few other things.
I sat there wondering if everyone in the room could make some connection with almost everything he said or was it possibly my Mother. I feel like she was the "stage manager" for the seminar that day. She is the type that would have jumped into the car with John in real life if she'd had the opportunity. She would seize any chance she got and never think twice or think "Oh, I don't know if I should". She always went right up to celebrities when she ran into one in public, and she had the kind of personality that she could always make an immediate friend with someone. She also would have been the type telling folks (with parallels and such - me too's) step up to the mic and join us. Anyway, I have finally started to type up my notes from the seminar and as I began doing it I realized more possible validations from my mother than I heard when we were there. My sister from here in Houston and our other sister flew in From florida to join us at the sminar. When I finish typing up my notes I'll share more with you.
I'd love to contact JE or the show and see if they would be interested in talking to "the girls who he never spoke to but who got the biggest reading of anyone at the seminar".
Do you know if there is a way to contact the show with this type of "follow-up" information from a seminar. I thought it might make an interesting show. By the way, did you notice any video equipment or audio recording equipment by JE? I didn't see any. That's why I don't think they'll ever show any follow ups from the seminar but remember him saying that it had been a very special one with so many clear validations and that he would not forget it?
I'd love to hear more from you. BTW I didn't notice if the mic was taken from the Dental Assistant but I'm going to check my notes and see what I had written about it. Let me know why you asked. I'm so curious now.
Well, I never got anything definite, but VioletSky said that from where she was sitting, while she couldn't really see or hear the dental assistant, Gwen, she did get the impression that Gwen could not validate the information coming through regarding the Colorado connection or the photo of a good-looking guy by a motorcycle at a car/motorcycle show.
My reason for asking was that I had a "me, too" with that validation. When the information wasn't acknowledged, JE had said something like, "Okay, just remember that." Since the dental assistant was not in my area and JE did not pursue it, I assumed it was not for us.
I have a family member who had, only a couple of weeks prior to the seminar, entered his motorcycle in competition at one of those motorcycle and auto shows (January 2002).
A few weeks prior to the competition, (Christmas, 2001) his young sister passed unexpectedly from a massive heart attack. He almost didn't enter his motorcycle, but I guess working on the bike helped to take his mind off it. It was the first time he had entered, and he won an award.
I had just received the photos in my e-mail a couple of days prior to the seminar. His wife and I had discussed how good he looked in the photos.
The "Colorado connection, like Denver..." applied here, as well.
This same family member also lost another family member (another young female, an in-law) to a congenital heart defect in November 2001, about 6 weeks prior to his own sister's passing. The young woman had lived in the Denver area.
Also, around September 2001, his brother-in-law moved to his hometown -- from Colorado Springs.
Before I went to the seminar, I made sure I had those names and dates in my "memory bank." While I didn't have the last name of the young woman who had passed in Colorado, I knew her first name and said, "Well, if I get her first name and there's any mention of a Colorado or Denver connection, I'll know it's her."
I guess that's enough for me, whether it applied to anyone else at the seminar or not.

From my experience that day I would say that there is probably a lot of me too going on over on the other side and there may be many people chiming in but someone who acknowledges it may get the next peice of information from their loved one because they spoke up. You can not imagine how many parallels there were that day for us. During some of the readings following Tina's family, there were several peices of information that were also very close to family members of ours.
Here is what I pictured was going on the whole time. I can picture my Mom behind the curtain (as if it were the wall between us and those who have crossed over) quietly listening to us and wispering in an earpeice to John (almost as if she were one of his own guides). I can see those who have crossed over gathered behind the curtain just like we were in front of the curtain. And every time JE gives out some information everyone on the other side is raising their hands if they have a similarity. Mom calling on them (she was a teacher so it would have been appropriate) Then as someone on our side acknowledges the information the person on the other side speaks up with more. That doesn't mean that one of them is not also speaking up and not being acknowledged - just some speak louder than others. When we acknowledge they give more validations. It seemed to me that there was a clear break only twice during the seminar where a reading was not lead in by a me too. When he finally finished with Tina he took a deep breath and said "Thank You, and Good Night". And when he answered questions. I think that they are on the other side at the seminar just as eager as we are to make a connection to us and with nearly 3000 people on our side of the room you can only imagine how many might be on the opposite side of the curtain that day. No wonder only a few actual "readings" take place.
I am completely convinced that they were all there - with bells on! Just like they're with us when we are not at a seminar but I think they are just as excited to let "share the birthday cake" as we are.
When I say this it seems a little "large" to think that my Mom would have been running the show from the other side but for me that's what I invision and it makes me happy. It's so her to be outgoing enough to get things started and then step aside and let as many join in as possible.
It's funny though, the things your mentioning are not things that stick out in my mind so I'm really anxious to read my notes. I think you probably did get your own reading and just like you said that's all you needed. Although, I have to admit, I'd love to go see him again and next time I'll speak up if I think I'm getting a message. Looking back, I'd rather have him call me a relative stealer and have to sit down than to miss out again.
I think JE is just so entertaining! I could watch him for hours on end - and have! I laugh out loud all of the time when I'm watching the show. I have dreams about him - nothing weird - he's just in them like other family and friends as if I really know him.

You're right, and I think that's the big message here, whether we're watching on television, attending a seminar, or connecting on our own.
