    I am sad that the show is closing, but from what I’ve heard about what John has said about the show, I think he knows that it is time to move on. He always said that his purpose was to educate everyone so that we wouldn’t need a medium. Maybe he feels he has fulfilled this part of that mission, and needs to move on to something else.

    I am certain he will continue his private readings, seminars, writings and such. It is sad that those of us who aren’t living in the towns he visits or who can’t afford the tickets will only be able to stay in touch with him thru our old tapes of his shows and reading his books, or catching an occasional guest appearance on TV.

    But it much be terribly draining on him to stand in front of an audience of several hundred people every day and make himself open to everyone who wishes to communicate with them all. I think that would be far more draining that a one-on-one reading. And he also has a family and as loving a man as he is, I am sure that he would like to devote as much time to his family as he can. Maybe he felt he needed to back away from something to get that time, and “the powers that be” made that happen with the cancellation of his show.

    I’ve learned a lot watching John. I’ve learned what happens to me. I now am confident that I have his gift too. I only wish I had practiced it as well as he has, so I could do what he has done. But I know it works. I know it happens. I know I’m not crazy or imagining things, and I also know I have a gift, and that it’s ok that I have it and others may not in the same way.

    I think it is good that people are letting John know how much his show is appreciated. But I hope he will follow whatever path is best for him, and not do something he regrets because it is what other people want him to do.

    Hi Terri

    I havent really heard what John thinks of it all, I live in England so we only get to know things by this board.
    I dont know whether you have had a welcome yet as I can’t find it. So let me be the first to welcome you on the Friends of John Edward board:wave: Hope you enjoy the company and friendship

    Hi Terri – I’ll be the 2nd!!

    Welcome to the family :wave:

    We can’t speak for John, but “hear” that he would do something again if the circumstances were right – this is the thread that Pam started Jan 17th.

    Thanks for sharing mamie. That’s what John inspires in people, that we would care more for his own comfort than our own. :thumbsup: I feel the same way. I personally don’t need the show to continue in it’s current form, and I’m ready to move on to the next level. But there are people who do wish for John to continue to be on television, and my actions are in support of those people, whoever and where ever they are.

    I think it’s extremely tempting to try to stand in Mr. Edwards’ shoes and imagine what his life must be like, or what choices he’ll make. But I think it’s even more important not to speculate without knowing some facts, and assume what he’ll be doing or what he won’t be doing.

    Mr. Edward’s office has been notified of actions, and they’ve been informed that if anything we do is out of line, or harmful to Mr. Edward, all they have to do is say the word and we’ll pull the plug. They know very well how to get in touch with me, and how to get in touch with Marcia, and we have not heard “don’t do it.”

    I am not in a position to speak for Mr. Edward. Only he can speak for himself, despite our efforts or speculation about what he does or does not want to do.

    But you can be sure of this. I wouldn’t be wasting my time, if I knew that John didn’t want this. If John’s office says “please don’t” – I promise you, you’ll never hear another word about this again.

    Hi Mamie

    I’ve said once and I’ll say it again – I trust Pam completely

    I think that nobody better than John knows that the road he takes, wherever it leads, is the one he’s supposed to follow. The “boys” have never let him down, so I don’t see why they’d start now!

    We are not petitioning to get Crossing Over back on our screens – “just John” – didn’t Angelina suggest that as a title some posts ago?:jester: :lwink:

    Hi, Terri! Welcome to the board! :wave:

    Well, we don’t really know what John thinks, at least we haven’t heard anything “from the horses mouth” on this as of yet, but we have it on pretty good authority that John would do another show if he had the opportunity to do a show HIS way, under HIS control. (How wonderful that would be! :jumper: )

    p/s: I asked this question a while back, but my thread got deleted! :nosay: Just wanted to make sure that this was OK with John!

    mrsjones, this is OBVIOUSLY a sensitive subject. Your thread got moved to the archive, because it’s so sensitive, AND I emailed you privatley, but you didn’t respond, so maybe you didn’t get it.

    Why is this sensitive? Because we’re not officially associated with John Edward. We can’t speak for him, and we understand that people are concerned about what John wants, but NO ONE is more concerned than I am. I have my name on this. I have worked hard to keep my integrity intact over the last 3 years. I’m NOT going to do something that I believe is against John’s wishes.

    But don’t look for John to “authorize” or “endorse” or publicly comment on ANY effort to get him back on TV, or the effort is MOOT. Surely you can understand why John can’t endorse us.

    Surely he will comment on his future plans when he feels the time is appropriate, and under the circumstances that he feels are appropriate. Until then, I will continue to work to give a voice to those who wish to express their dissatifaction with the way the show was not supported by Universal, and wish to express the sense of loss they feel by losing the show!

    I thought this was a forum that was open to caring opinion. I didn’t realize that posting my appreciation for John’s work and my hope that he will continue in whatever he feels is his own best interests would warrant such an attack.

    Goodbye.

    We are!

    I’ve sent you an email just anyway, but the thing is – nobody in this family would ever do anything that would offend John Edward or his work. The petition, if succesful, will only bring an offer to John – the final decision will be his and only his.

    I’m sorry if you thought you were being attacked. No where in my heart did I have that intention.

    This is also a forum where owners and moderators can speak too. That’s all I was doing, and it was not meant to be an attack.

    I would appreciate you telling me where I attacked you, so I can correct myself or clarify, so you don’t have to feel attacked.

    I didnt’ mean to start a ruckus :( I just couldn’t find anything on the net regarding his thoughts on it. It’s a shame ….. but I have faith that it’s the right thing to do if it’s going off the air. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love for him to stay on..he does such wonderful work with his gifts.

    I believe that when one door closes, another opens. John has certainly changed the way a lot of people look at what happens after our body dies. Some people need comforting, and John gave that to many. Personally, John opened a door in my life that has enriched my knowledge of this life and the after-life.

    God will use him in another way…I can’t wait to see what that way is.

    Terri: You didn’t start a ruckus Terri, you asked a very valid question, one that shows you care about what he wants, and that’s wonderful! A question that I also wish John Edward would answer publicly himself very soon so that we can all be on the same page.

    To all: Maybe I seem a bit defensive because my own motives are being called into question when people state that maybe the whole thing should just be let go. If I have offended anyone, I’m heartily sorry and wish that people would stick around to hear that, and not simply run off ending the conversation, under the misconception that I just don’t care :confused:

    Those that know me well, can make some assumptions about what information I have, and how I decide to act. To those that don’t know me well…maybe they think I’m about as selfish as those people who were pushing and pushing for the Beatles to be reunited, even though they had no desire to reunite. That’s not me, and all I have to prove it, is my own word.

    No, sorry, I must have missed your email. I just wasn’t sure why that post was deleted, because I just wanted to know what John’s thoughts on our efforts were. I am not questioning your motives, Pam. I know that you hold John’s work near and dear to your heart, like we all do!

    I realize that this is a very sensitive subject, and helping John would NEVER be a waste of time to me, but I wanted to make sure that our efforts were not in vain (in the event that John chose not to continue on TV). Sorry if I stepped on any toes, here!

    Pam Pam, you are being to hard on yourself. You have a great heart and you have only moved forward with the best of intentions and knowledge that you are wanted to move forward.
    Do not second guess yourself. You would never push John or anyone to do something they did not want to do.

    Namaste
