View Full Version : Got the Bridges Call Tonight (Merged threads)
07-16-2003, 07:05 PM
Just wanted you to know that I got "The Call" at 6:55PM tonight from JE's Office with the Information. She was so nice and was patient with all the questions I had to ask. Hope to see you all there. I am very excited and wanted to tell you all right away.
-Michelle :jumper: :jumper:
Well, it looks like the calls have begun! :thumbsup:
Congratulations, Michelle, and all others who wil be attending the special seminars!
07-17-2003, 01:21 AM
COOL!! I never called to get a confirmation number, I hope that won't be a problem.:(
07-17-2003, 06:50 AM
I will have to be sure to keep my phone with me :)
07-17-2003, 07:48 AM
That was one of the questions I asked, about the Confirmation Number if we need to give it at the door. She said no, just give your name. My impression is that the Confirmation Number was just a Formality. As long as they have your Name and Phone Numbers, everything should be ok.
07-17-2003, 08:03 AM
Congratulations, Michelle, on "the call":jumper: I am eagerly awaiting "the call" myself. Every time I come home, the first thing I do is run to the phone to see if there is a message:D
Do you know when the shows actually start? I was told sometime in the fall, maybe late September or October?
I can't wait:jumper:

Hello everyone, I have been on vacation this last week. To those of you from Vancouver B.C. I love your city!!!!
Anyway I have a lot of posts to catch up on. My first question is how many others got a call on the bridges gallery thinge?
For those of you that did get the call did you get any dates?
07-20-2003, 09:14 PM
I got my call on Friday, July, 18. At about 7:00 in the evening. The "gallery" will be on Sept 9, 2003 in Long Island.
I got the time, address, and phone number of a contact person.
Hope all that got through will be getting their call soon.
Take care all,
07-20-2003, 09:18 PM
That is awesome!!! I wonder if they are going to have two sessions or just one, and if they do have two if they will be in the same weekend?
07-21-2003, 08:47 AM
Just wanted to report in that I too received my call from
JE's office at 5:00pm(CST) on Friday evening. It was hysterical
here (what a couple of boobs - my husband and myself). I had laid down to take a nap at about 4:30pm and when the phone rang, both my husband and I answered at the same time. He didn't hear me answer, so when the gal asked for me, he starts
yelling to me to pick up the phone. I am trying to answer him through the phone and he keeps yelling for me. This poor woman
had to listen to all this and finally he got the message that I had
picked up the phone - so he hung up. I tend, when I am sleeping
to answer the phone so quick that I am not always awake when I say hello. Not a problem this time, but I switched into over-drive and kept telling her - let me find a pen. No pen where there always is one! In fact I realized that there was no paper there
either, so what good is the pen? I am talking to her all the way from the bedroom to the kitchen to hold on that I am searching for a paper and pen. She was wonderful!!! She was laughing and didn't seem to be upset that it was taking me soo long to
get myself together. I sware, I felt like a 15 y/o getting information on my first sock-hop!
We are on Tuesday, September 9th @ 7:30pm. My sister and I are flying in and want to spend a few more days in the city to catch some of the sites, etc. I was so surprised that they said "Fall" and it ends up being at the beginning of September.
I was hoping to see New York during the fall. Plus the weather
would be nicer and more temperate then. But believe you me, I would crawl through broken glass to be there for this.
Hope everybody has heard something by now. But rest assured, there is no problem if you called in on the 21st and didn't get a confirmation number - they know that and will give you one when they call you. (At least mine did.)
When I got off the phone the first thought I had was to get on here and tell you all. But of course, I had to call my sister and let her know that we got "the call". And you notice how quickly I
got on here to tell you. (I am easily side tracked if you can't tell.)
Just telling you all about this has gotten me all excited again! What a wonderful way to start the week.
Hope you all have a great one!!

What did I miss, what did I miss? What is this call were all waiting for? You all have me excited for you but ... I'm not sure what for. Someone fill me in, please.
*I admit... I haven't been visiting regularly like I used to. Summer vacation !!!
hazeleyz, check this thread below, then you may want to use the SEARCH feature above, and put the word "Bridges" in the search box:
07-21-2003, 11:29 AM
Thank you. Wow.... have I been out of the loop for 2 months already. Where does time go? I quess I'm too late to make the call, huh? :shrug:
Sorry, hazeleyz. Yes, you're about a month too late. :(
07-21-2003, 11:37 AM
Mary Jo, Congrats on the call!! Your post was really funny:D
07-21-2003, 01:16 PM
Does anyone know WHERE on Long Island the groups will be meeting? Still waiting for my call:(
07-21-2003, 01:32 PM
Kathy, I do not know the answer to your question, but I have a question for you :) Did you get through the first sat or the second one of calling in. I am wondering if they are doing call back for the first sat then the second or something like that?
Anyone who got the call can you post whether you got through on the first sat or second???
Did the newsletter say anything about two sessions or just one session?
07-21-2003, 01:55 PM
I got through on the first Saturday. The newsletter said groups of approximately 250 so I am assuming there will be as many seminars in groups of 250 as it takes to have everyone attend that is interested. My guess, anyway.
07-21-2003, 03:09 PM
I got through on the 2nd Saturday, and have yet to receive a call back. Waiting patiently :jumper:
07-21-2003, 04:53 PM
I got through on the first Saturday and haven't heard anything yet.
07-21-2003, 04:57 PM
hmmmmmmm:confused: ok I have no theroy anymore, I thought the people who got through the 1st sat would get call first??? wrongo, I wish I knew the date I was going forsure, I just saw on orbitz that I could get a direct flight to NY for $200 WOW, I wish I could book it
Patience is a virtue and everthing happens for a reason. That is my montra :)
07-21-2003, 05:53 PM
In response to your question of where it's being held -
It's on Long Island <ebm>
Date is 9/9/03 at 7:30pm
Just thought I'd pass the information along.
Edited by Moderator
07-21-2003, 05:56 PM
Thanks for all the information! I can't believe everyone is going to one seminar..unless I understood the information in Bridges all wrong? :confused:
07-21-2003, 06:24 PM
Well my impression is that there will be a few of these seminars planned. Otherwise why would they open the phone lines for 2 Saturdays in a row for 5 hours each day.... there's a lot of us Bridges peeps out there! So go relax and enjoy your lemonade on the porch swing :lwink: and don't forget to take the phone with ya... It'll be our turn soon enough. ;)
07-21-2003, 09:15 PM
I know of one other going on September 11th, so don't book assuming that you will be in the Sept. 9th one, just letting you know.
07-21-2003, 09:17 PM
Did anyone get the Seminar date for Sept. 11th? <ebm>I got through on June 21st. I'm part of a Support Group "The Compassionate Friends" for Parents who lost Children and there are two Mothers in my Group who lost Children in the WTC 9/11 - all I keep thinking of is if I get a reading would any of their Children come through with Messages for their Mom's and especially my Little Girl Lauren who would have been 5 on 8/24. Hope to see some of you on the 11th.
Michelle, looks like you will have the shortest drive to the seminar. How about everyone stays at your place when they arrive.:D People can bring their own pillow. (Don't reveal your address :) )
07-21-2003, 09:36 PM
if it wasn't for my Husband, 2 Girls and the Fish, believe me, you'd all be welcome!!
:D I was told the doors will be open at 7PM so I'm getting there extremely early, will have a nice relaxing Lunch and get very psyched for the evening!!
Edited by Moderator
Since these are "private" events, rather than public ones, it's probably best not to post the location of the seminars.
Please also remember not to post where you will be staying, or where you will be meeting up with other subscribers. For safety reasons, it's best to contact each other through e-mail.
Thanks for your cooperation!
07-22-2003, 09:24 AM
Margies Girl, thanks for the heads up. :jumper:
07-22-2003, 09:35 AM
Yes, thanks Margies Girl! The more information I have, the better...;)
07-22-2003, 09:45 AM
Thanks should be toward Michelle, I asked her privately about it because of my traveling too and she let me know :) Thank you Michelle!!!:jumper:
07-22-2003, 09:51 AM
Thanks, Michelle and Margies Girl!! :D
07-22-2003, 08:34 PM
I'm excited that everyone is starting to get their calls, that's great!
I got thru the last hour on the 2nd saturday, i guess that's means i will be one of the last ones to be called.
Oh well, better late then never.....at least i got thru. either sept 9th or sept 11th is good for me, my moms birthday was sept 10th.
07-24-2003, 07:49 AM
I got my call last night! I saw on the caller ID "Get
Psyched" and, boy, did I:jumper:
The date I go is Sept. 11 and I called on the June 28 date for anyone that still has not received a call....they are still working on them so hang in there:D
07-24-2003, 10:16 AM

TRUST TRUST TRUST
07-24-2003, 05:50 PM

a friend of the family went to a seminar once withjohn and my step granfather came through... she was kinda mad.. she said just because I talk to you guys all the time your father ( she said to my step mom comes through) and she only heard for a few seconds from your own father my step- grandfather just took over.. it was soooo cool lolol
Okay, Susan, now you can calm down, sit back, and relax. :D
07-25-2003, 08:02 PM
My phone rang right after Cyndy's follow-up.:) I don't usually answer the phone from 3-4 but since I've been carrying the cordless phone around in my pocket for daaaays I figured I should answer every call. :lwink:
I'm going Sept. 26. :jumper:
07-25-2003, 08:24 PM
Susan, that's great. That's so funny about the phone.
I told my husband that I'm waiting for this phone call and everytime the phone rings we both run and he teases me every time it rings and says "get psych'd". He's such a comedian :rolleyes: LOL
07-26-2003, 01:44 AM
:confused: I want my call! :(
07-28-2003, 05:26 PM
Me too :)
07-28-2003, 05:38 PM
Do you think they'll need any seat fillers? :rolleyes: (yeah, riiiiight !!)

07-28-2003, 07:17 PM
I just got my call! I'm going Sept 11th. I spoke to a lovely woman, Joanne, who told me there will be 3 events with 250 people each. I asked her how many Bridges subscribers there are and she told me 16,000!
07-28-2003, 07:37 PM
Kathy and Beth YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:jumper: :jumper:
07-30-2003, 09:15 AM
I have never been to Long Island. I am flying into Islip Airport and was wondering if anyone knows about ground transportation from the airport to the <venue>? I could sure use some help with this...hoping someone knows? :(
07-30-2003, 06:27 PM
I just got the call:D I am in the second group, very thrilled.
07-30-2003, 06:35 PM
Congrats everybody! Boy is mid-September gonna be a bumper crop for posting here! :jumper: :jumper: Good news for those of us not going!!!!!!!!! :cuser:
If anyone gets a chance, tell John greetings from all of us here and that some of us pray for him and his work daily!
07-30-2003, 06:35 PM
Yea for you!!! :D
Does that mean you are going on 9/9 too?
Valerie and I will be there on Sept. 11th. I received the call about 45 minutes ago. Couldn't have been a nicer person on the other end. Her name is Joanne (sp?) and she said she has already spoken to other people from here.
Sept. 9th has been filled.
07-30-2003, 08:51 PM
Hey, I didn't get called yet :(
07-30-2003, 09:26 PM
Thankyou!! Thankyou!! Thankyou!!
To Margies girl and PhilsGail.
I'm going Sept. 9th!! :jumper:
Margies girl had an extra ticket for Sept. 9 She contacted PhilsGail who contacted me and to make a long story short...Woohoo!! I'm so excited!
I had been upset about not being able to call-in on those 2 Saturdays because I did not receive my Newsletter for the verification and I never received a response from my e-mails and messages to JE's office.
I then just accepted that it was not meant to be...I trusted in the process and let it go. If it was meant to happen, it would have.
When I received an e-mail from 'Margies girl' confirming that 'Yes' I could have her extra ticket, I started crying and then I was excited and nervous...me? go to Long Island...by myself!! Can I do this?? For a chance to see JE?? You bet...I will find a way!!!
07-30-2003, 11:02 PM
Since I don't get Bridges I guess I'm missing out on everything. I'm happy for everybody who got the call. Guess I'll have to rely on the old first saturday of the month.:rolleyes:
07-31-2003, 05:01 AM
capistrano :jumper: hooray for you!
(((margie's girl)))) for helping a friend out!
chargeit2him: I am in the same boat with you. My first Bridges is somewhere in process! Yeah I think we can be a little jealous, but mostly I am excited to hear from all of our friends here who get to go!!!!! Just think of the validations they can bring back to us and I am sure reminders that although we'd really like to see John, we don't need him to connect with our loved ones.
:jumper: (notice the jumper is a bit green with envy this morning! :lwink: )
07-31-2003, 05:35 PM
i'm...........still................waiting............ :confused: i'm getting very depressed that i wont get a call even though i got thru:(
07-31-2003, 08:53 PM
Hey there Paula. . .
I don't think you need to worry about not being called yet.
You just hang in there and know that a call will be coming your
way. If you got through, you will be receiving a call. They just have sooo many calls to make. Hang tight and you will get
your call too. There is still a lot of time until say the Sept. 26th date. And you will still have plenty of time to get your plans made.
Cheer Up girl!
:lwink: Mary Jo
08-03-2003, 01:03 PM
Am I the only one flying into Islip Airport? I am so nervious about making all the connections and getting to the seminar on time. :(
I am flying alone and don't do it well. Hope about some "you can do it!" from my "Freinds"??
08-03-2003, 04:55 PM
Kathy, you know what?
Think of flying as being just that much closer to heaven. What a pleasing thought.
I love to fly and have enjoyed every single flight I have ever taken. As a matter of fact I would LOVE to be the pilot. What a treat that would be.
Rest well and enjoy the experience. Get a window seat so you can watch the clouds as they go by. See how beautifully the cities are layed out below you. The engineering of the layout is amazing. Neat stuff - wish I were going with you;)
Have a wonderful time - nothing else will compare to it - absolutely nothing...
08-03-2003, 04:59 PM
Beautiful...Thank you! :daisy:
08-03-2003, 05:09 PM
My pleasure - :daisy:
08-03-2003, 05:41 PM
I know just how you feel. I am also going on Sept. 9th, but I plan on driving. It is about a 5 hour trip which doesn't seem too bad, but I am so scared to do this on my own. It has been a long time since I have done anything like this alone. I just keep thinking to myself...you 'CAN' do this. It will be such an awesome experience to be at an event like this with JE and lots of JE Friends.
And like Irishrose says 'nothing else will compare to it...absolutely nothing'
We will have an amazing time and I look forward to meeting you.
08-03-2003, 06:02 PM
Thank you for the kind words. I wish you a safe trip and look forward to maybe finding you there (?)
08-03-2003, 10:40 PM
Might I suggest John's tape on Psychic Self-Defense? It is a great tape with a lot of helpful information and meditations on it. He even has one for vehicles and flying. I have actually used it many times when flying. I have found that when I use it a calmness comes over me and I actually have a very peaceful and relaxing ride.
You probably still have time to order the tapes if you don't already have them...or maybe you could borrow one from someone?
08-04-2003, 08:12 AM
Great idea! I am sure things will be fine BUT...I was given the frequent flyer miles and the trip was arranged for me by a friend I will be visiting in Kansas City prior to the seminar. I am flying on 9/9 from KC to Chicago then to Boston then to Long Island..finally landing. <ebm...too much unsafe personal information>Absolutely no room for error on my part or by weather problems or by anything. That is my anxiety..making all these connections in time. I could not turn down the free trip and it was the only way it could be arranged but.... I keep thinking, if I was meant to be there, I will be there. Deep breath... Thank you, all, for your suggestions. Makes me feel better already. ;)
08-04-2003, 09:00 AM
Hi Kathy, I'm not a great flyer myself. I do this little
ritual before the plane takes off--I say the Lord's Prayer, surround the whole plane in a big bubble of White Light of love and protection. Ask Archangel Michael to protect you and ask for prayers for the pilots in control of the plane to be protected also.
Just think of these big huge hands of White Light that are holding up the plane as you are flying through the air. I don't think John likes flying either :)
Have a safe trip and enjoy the pretzels.:lwink:
08-04-2003, 09:10 AM
Vabeliever ~ I do the exact same thing, I think of his hands holding the airplane to a safe landing if the turbulance gets bad :)
Kathy, just keep thinking how everything is going to be perfect! Enjoy meeting the new people and know that you are going to have a great time, we can not wait to hear back how it went!!
08-04-2003, 10:37 AM
*tears here* Thanks, Guys!
08-04-2003, 03:52 PM
Has everyone rcvd their call?
08-04-2003, 07:06 PM
Not yet :(
08-04-2003, 07:23 PM
I didn't receive a call back either . . . but I'm still hoping. . . . .
08-05-2003, 06:21 PM
My line was busy for about an hour and ten minutes. While I was trying I was talking to my grandparents and uncle who have crossed over. I said " ok, Grandma, Uncle Phil, this would be a wonderful way for you to get messages through to mom and dad, so, if you could , could you help me get through?" About a half hour later I got through. My son thought I was nuts because I was running through the house whooping and hollaring, I was SO thrilled! The lady who called me back to confirm was really nice. She said that John is more lively at these events because he doesn't have to worry about cameras, and that I shouldn't be surprised if the readings go on until 11:00 PM, since John doesn't stop until the energy does. I can't wait!!
08-06-2003, 06:33 PM
Hey all! Just wanted to pass on a little information from John's office. I was speaking with them today and was asked to let everyone know that they are still working on the call backs. Everyone WILL get called don't worry. There are lots of calls to make and the ladies doing the calling are their evening staff. They are working as fast as they can at getting everyone called so hang in there...your phone will ring soon!
08-06-2003, 06:59 PM
thanks, i needed to hear that, i guess i will wait a bit longer.
as long as i know that EVERYONE will get a call back then i wont worry so much.
thanks again.:D :D
Tammy, you've given some nice peace of mind to some of our members here. :) I know I would have wondered about it if I hadn't been called yet. They will all be thankful.
08-06-2003, 08:00 PM
Yes, thank you for that info, Doodledink.
I will continue to work on the virtue.....PATIENCE ;)

"Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears." ~ Barbara Johnson ~
08-07-2003, 05:38 PM
Tinkster, I LOVE that quote!!!....but perhaps it should read "being forced to idle your motor" as opposed to " the ability"...:lwink:
08-08-2003, 07:34 AM
08-12-2003, 03:20 PM
Just to give others who are still waiting encouragement . . . I got my call this afternoon!!!! :jumper: I'm going September 26th. Yeah!!!!
08-12-2003, 04:45 PM
I finally got my call last night, HIP HIP HURRAY !!!!!:jumper:
I'm going Sept 26th. Now that the stress is over (i was getting worried there) I can worry about getting read. Now it's time to do that family research and get my facts straight.
Anyone else going on the 26th?
08-12-2003, 04:46 PM
Terrific! The stressing is over..let the fun begin!
08-14-2003, 06:39 PM
Well, now that it has been determined that the northeast power outage was only a power problem, not terrorism related.........I must chuckle to myself.......
I believe I am one of the only ones left who did not yet receive a call back. However, I see "Get Psych'd" was on my caller ID today about 45 minutes before the power outage!! Unfortunately I didn't have my answering machine on. Of course, I'm sure the outage put phone calls on hold for the rest of the day, and I had to laugh to myself. I am trying so hard to be patient......this is the ultimate test!
Hopefully tomorrow, once there is power..........
If I didn't have SLOW luck, I'd have NO luck at all :lwink:
08-28-2003, 07:16 PM
Just thought I'd update you all and let you know last week I finally got my callback. I was, literally, one of the last 5 people to be called I was told:P
I will be there Sept. 26th, rain or shine. :jumper:
08-28-2003, 08:05 PM
I am so glad you got your call. I can imagine there were a few anxious moments.
I am sorry that I do not subscribe to the newsletter but maybe next year :)
Have yourself a good visit. It will be a wonderful experience.
08-29-2003, 09:37 AM
Annie ~ your patience paid off, so happy to read that you got a date to go!!!
