I was there but didn't take notes. I saw others who were writing furiously, so I was hoping one of them were JEF members.
If no one else is forthcoming, I will see what I can recall.
There is a brief story about my meeting John under the Hi from Angelina and Pam thread. Maybe that would help a bit til someone else gets a chance to put something out about the readings.

Hi all, I attended the Indy seminar yesterday and
John was GREAT, as always. I made notes on about
12 readings and there were maybe 3 or 4 others
that I didn't. Some very good readings. If there
was anyone there that did get a reading and needs
notes, maybe I can help.
John made a personal reference that I hadn't
heard before. I think someone there was from
Kokomo, Indiana, and he acknowledged that was
where his first death threat came from. Anyone
else hear about this?

Back from Indy!
My husband and I had a great get-away weekend and the Seminar was just icing on the cake. We arrived at the Hyatt on Friday and they put us on the 20th floor, which isn't my cup of tea since I have a height phobia. But we had a gorgeous panoramic view of the sunset and great view of the city by night.
Friday we walked across the sky bridge to the Convention Center and scouted out the place, so on Saturday we knew exactly where to go. We were outside Hall G by seven Saturday morning and there were already several people in line.
Two sisters had extra chairs and shared them with us so a big thanks to them. Everyone sat around, talking and getting acquainted. And for any of you who may have noticed, my husband was the tall, bald guy who talked to everybody and now knows the life history of at least the first 100 people in line!
I am going into a lot of detail about this because to me the waiting, the getting to know each other, the sharing of experiences, is an integral part of the Seminar experence.
They let us into the hall at 12:00 and we had third row center seats, which was really great, and no, we did not get read, nor did anyone near us.
I thought the Seminar was a bit low-key. No one warmed up the audience, (which was fine with me, I'm not sure I like that) and a lady came out (it may have been Carol) and gave a few rules, like, cut off cell phones, then said here's John Edward. He walked out to a standing ovation and started talking.
John was great as usual and very acurate. I didn't hear a lot of 'no' responses!
The readings went smoothly until at one point he had two sisters coming through and several people claimed to have 'a mother and a sister, or a grandmother and niece, that sort of thing. John kept saying 'No, two sister energies.' He finally came off the stage, went to the area and connected with the right person.
To carolv--I also heard him mention his first death threat.

Remember the lady who lost her son and her husband. Her husband not that long ago, less than a year.
John had already given her lots of validations. She was just opening her mouth to ask him something and he said To answer your question, what happened with the song on the radio, that was real, it happened, you can tell anyone you want, you're not crazy. Her knees actually buckled and her friend had to bolster her. Then he went on to tell her that she was stuck in her grief and they wanted her to move forward. He made an analogy between grief and the Grand Canyon. It's impossible to fill and it's always going to be there, but it is possible to move past it. I really think he may have convinced her to get some counseling.
Wasn't that one of the very first readings? That one stuck with me and I'm pretty sure it's what my husband was referring to when he said he could see now that although he didn't feel he had the need to hear from anyone, he could now see that John was for real and people needed him.

Actually, the 1st reading was about the attack
by the dog. Brother had recently passed and was
bringing thru their daughter. Then they brought
thru a husband or brother for someone else sitting
in that area, that worked in foods or bakery.
The 3rd reading was a younger male (Richie, Rick)
Oct. connection, name change in family (adopted),
T name (Thomas). Next was the one where the father thought his passing was bigger & better than the mothers, liked all the attention, joke
about living it up until his wife got there, family scandal, etc. Then the one you were talking about, the song on the radio, Grand Canyon
analogy, 19th, California reference, golf person,
married twice, got it right the second time. It
was great. I took alot of notes, didn't get read
but that was okay. I GOT the message.

I knew it was one of the first ones, but you're right. See what happens if you don't take notes! I think because that was the one that gave me a validation I was seeking, I remember it best.
They were all good though.
He's always good and I could listen to him all day.

What's this about a death threat against John? Was anything else said about it?
That's pretty spooky...
I can't imagine ANYONE wanting to hurt John, when he dedicates his entire life to nothing but HELPING people. How very sad.
