View Full Version : Has anyone been read by JE more than once??
Just curious about this! Has anyone been read by JE more than once? If so, did the same people come through with simiar information? Also, I know the rule about not discussing other mediums, so I won't ask for names or details, but have you had a reading with another medium? If so, how did it compare as far as accuracy? (I hope that's okay to ask!) :hmm:
juie, asking for comparisons between readings with JE and other mediums would be a violation of our Guidelines, unless the mediums are those who have publicly worked with JE -- Suzane Northrop, John Holland, or Robert Browne.
See the thread below for more information about the exception to that Guideline:
In answer to your other question, while I, personally, have not been read twice by JE, my family has.
My nieces were read by JE at a seminar in December 1999, and in November 2000, I was read by JE at another seminar, in a different city.
While my sister came through in both readings, the validations she gave to her daughters were completely different than those I received in my reading.
Sorry, I was afraid of that! I certainly don't want to break the rules. I thought maybe if we just didn't use any other mediums names we would be okay.
I'm so glad for your family to have your sister come through twice like that. I know what a gift that is. My brother has come through twice for my family with JE. Each reading was incredible-but different. Prior to our last reading, I kept thinking about what I would like to hear him say. So many things for sure!! One thing that I decided I would really love to hear, after becoming more familar with John and the CO show, was that he was seeing a bouquet of pink roses. I didn't share that with anyone. I always tear up when someone gets that in a reading. Just that extra little something that really gets to me! Well John was talking to my sister, and said my brother was acknowledging another sister ( the only one is me!)
and then he said he saw a bouquet of pink roses! That did it for
me!! I think about that every day and it puts a smile on my face.
My brother and I were exteremely close and he came through with a lot of great info., but that was my favorite!! :love:
juie, congratulations on your family's readings with JE, and your pink roses, as well!
As long as the discussion includes only the above-named mediums, it's okay.
You might be interested in this thread regarding penielayne's telephone reading with John Holland:
Also, there's a discussion on the readings that took place at the event in Las Vegas, where (besides JE) Northrop, Browne, and Holland were also present:
For more information, you can use the handy "search" button and put any one of those mediums' names in the search box.
Hi juie, Please let us know the times and places for your family's readings with John. I keep a list on here of all members who have been read.
List of Member Readings (http://www.johnedwardtalk.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5513&highlight=readings+list)
Sounds like you should be included. There are some repeat names on the list.

Isn't that the reason John asked if you have had a reading (ex. coming to the gallery) to refrain because once the family members (passed) know they can get through they will keep doing it and not give anyone else a chance ? Thats only fair. Believe me I would love to be read but I guess it's not my turn yet.
I honestly don't know. :shrug: I can't recall JE ever asking people who have been read to never attend another seminar.
I believe that he has asked people who have been read to refrain from attending the Gallery, but other than that, I couldn't say.
These are the reasons, though, that I have never (even before my reading) attempted to call in for Gallery tickets, or for tickets to the special Bridges seminars.

Oh Julie...what a wonderful gift to get from your brother. My girlfriend and I saw John in Pittsburgh 2 years ago. We didn't have tickets but knew that we would some how get in to see him. We didn't want readings, we just wanted to see john in action. Needless to say, with the help of family and friends on the other side we did get tickets for the seminar. Just seeing John doing readings in person was a real gift for both of us. When it is my time for a reading I will treasure it all the more.

I was talking mainly about the gallery. I don't expect anyone to not go to a seminar after being read. I know I told hubby that I wanted to go until I got read so I guess I'll be attending alot of seminars. ( when they come around:rolleyes: )
Hey chargeit2him and rx1020- (just a side note- PA-Pittsburgh area is where I come from and I have a lot of family still living there that are sooo anxious for John to make a stop there!! we'll keep our fingers crossed!)
I think I will attend every seminar I can possibly make for as long as I possibly can! Even having been read twice, and even if I knew without a doubt I would never be read by JE again, I would still go. Just to see him in action and to see the healing effect he has on everyone in the room-WOW!! There really are no words!
My mom attended one of the last seminars with me and we did not get read(although it is the one I think maybe we missed out on and I am now kicking myself for) She was so unhappy about 3/4 of the way into the evening when she realized it was near the end and we probably weren't getting read. She says she will NEVER go to another seminar again. She says just knowing that there is a man up on that stage with the ability to get her a message from her son and yet it doesn't happen is just too much for her.
I don't share her feelings at all. Of course,don't get me wrong, I would love to be read anytime, but I always go with an open mind and figure if it's not our turn, than someone else needs it more. I really do trust the process.
Although I have tried to sway my mom's way of thinking, I finally gave up. Who am I to say how she should deal with her only son's death. The fact that she has come as far as she has in the last 2 1/2 yrs. really amazes me. We all deal with greif in our own ways I am learning. Boy am I learning!! Losing my brother was the first real loss I have ever suffered and it something I deal with every day. ( I'm sure everyone reading this knows what I am talking about)
John's seminars, books and CO have been my therapy. And now all of you. Sharing stories and ideas, just knowing I am not really losing my mind ..... Thanks to all of you!

Don't think that's it. He's commented that if it's too soon between readings that second reading may just be a continuation of the first and thus, if you don't have a good memory, you may lose some of the context.

Don, I believe you are correct. I also seem to recall hearing John say that he is not a "telephone" to the other side that folks should become dependent on when feeling the absence of their crossed loved ones. I KNOW I've heard him say that "mediumship is not a cure for grief". We must all experience the loss and go through the process of grieving. It can become unhealthy when folks become dependent on the messages delivered by a medium as their source of solice.
My interpretation of John's statements leads me to think that the hope is that his work will help people understand that we do not end. The love and personality that we are continues even though the vehicle is gone. From that lesson, there is hope and an acceptance that can be gained that will allow us to deal with our grief and move on with our own lives.
I recently compared this to a loved one moving away when trying to explain the process to my child. I explained that if a loved one moved to the other side of the world in the "olden days", we wouldn't be able to see them or touch them, but we would know that they were there. It wasn't possible to just call them up or send video, and we only got messages from them once in a while via 'snail mail'. And, like the messages sent from those who have crossed, the messages from loved ones on the other side of the earth sometimes were not delivered, or were delivered to the wrong receiver, or were garbled (damaged) by the time they reached their destination. Although, the example isn't perfect because it really isn't the same as death, it did help my child to understand what the purpose of John's work was. To let us know that they are still there, they still love us, and if we are patient and aware, we just might receive a message from them once in a while.
My whole point being that if I were ever so lucky to receive a message via John's special delivery, I would be absolutely amazed to receive another. I'd be like "okay, I got the validation that they are there, now on to others who need the same." To get another validation would make me wonder what I missed the first time...lol...Not that I wouldn't continue to attend seminars but, as many other threads have pointed out, for all the other reasons...good friends, good fun, good entertainment, and all the positive energy and love that we get to be a witness to.

Good point, doodledink. :)
In our case, my nieces clearly needed to hear from their mom, who had just passed 5 months prior to the seminar.
The following year, when we got our reading, my sister was what JE calls a "lead-in", where she brought through other family members. She did give specific validations so we'd know for certain it was her, but we came to understand later that the main messages of that day were for my husband's mother, aunt, and cousin. Naturally, we delivered the messages, and the rest is history.
I, personally, don't need another reading, but we were chosen to be messengers, and what an honor it has been. I'd do it again in a heartbeat! :love:
